Louisa came to me asking ” Can you do vintage hair?” – “I love Vintage” I Replied!
So there we have it, a match made in heaven!
After a fab consultation and Dita Von Teese as our muse, we came up with Louisa’s creation.
Louisa has naturally very fine, short layered hair so this was going to be a challenge!
So……. with a little help from some clip-in extensions, tongs, soft bristle brush and plenty or Elnett hair spray ‘viola’ Louisa was transformed into a vintage goddess!
I achieved Louisa’s look by using the old fashioned technique of creating Marcel waves!
The fantastic photographer Steve Fuller really captured Lou’s and Adam’s special day in a breath taking way!
It is an absolute pleasure being a part of so many beautiful brides’ wedding days – the whole process of me meeting the bride and designing the hair style, to the trial and doing the ‘do’ on the day is all worth the energy and effort once I see them ready to commit to their future husbands.
My lovely client and friend Carly was in this very position on Friday 20th July 2012, here she is in the process of me doing her hair and her becoming a stunning bride.

Having finishing touches!
Carly wanted a soft and full volume updo. Her hair is bob length so being the hairy godmother I am, I yet again worked my magic using lots of extra hair! I also encouraged Carly to purchase a fantastic Jenny Packham head piece. I just love a Jenny Packman creation! Her pieces are exquisite! These can be purchased online or at Teokath in Canterbury.
After waiting patiently, Carly was transformed into one sexy, hot bride! Ready to strut her stuff down the aisle of commitment…
I had a fab time meeting up with Shona McGarty again, in order to create another hair masterpiece for her red carpet look for The British Soap Awards 2012. Shona is close friends with Hetti Bywater, who plays Lucy Beale in Eastenders, and so I did her hair too on Saturday the 28th April. Emily Rose was on the makeup, and Nina Sobers was the girls’ stylist for the event, choosing dresses from Tina Lobondi, who actually made each girl a bespoke dress. The girls had heaps of red carpet coverage, and Look Magazine chose both of their looks in their top-five. I created a high bun up-do for Shona, to add to her sophisticated Angelina Jolie inspired look, and for Hetti, I went for a 1920’s inspired up-do, with finger-wave detail and delicate curls.
