Drama Magazine with Tamla Kari

When it comes to the world of fashion there is no shortage of drama, and so working on a shoot with the absolutely stunning actress Tamla Kari for Drama magazine was right up my street. Styled by the amazing Kelvin Barron, and shot my fantastic photographer Andrew Hiles, I knew the day would be filled with drama in a fabulous way!! I adored working with Tamla, her features are so dainty and classic – this vintage hairdo was perfect for her face, the styling and the set. Check out the images below… and other vintage looks on:

Back in time with style

When you look at certain eras it is no surprise that even today that the world of fashion, hair and make-up are constantly inspired by these past decades. This is so true too, with many brides’ choice of image for their big day. The idea of transforming into a glamorous bride with the hair and fashion of another era is really exciting because it is something that most of us do not have the opportunity to do, unlike the Hollywood actresses such as Angelina Jolie or Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker and the likes of Judi Dench – all have the regular pleasure to dress up in acting roles and on the red carpet. So when it comes to your wedding day, you can literally be as glamorous as you want.

I love the photo attached to this post – of a recent bride of mine… as soon as I saw her Downton Abbey crossed with 1930’s show style dress, I instantly knew the best hair style to top her special look on her special day – creating a very glamourous, aristocratic image. So one of my top tips for your wedding theme or style – make sure if you choose a vintage dress that you match your hair style to that same era – you don’t have to go over the top with a theme – but it is really nice to have some continuity.

Perfect Vintage Wedding

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!
