Launch of the Bluecoat store, Victoria

At the end of last month, I got invited to an Ian Stuart event – another reason why I love my job. I really love Ian Stuart’s designs, and was excited about attending the launch of the Bluecoat store in Victoria, London.

Me and Tilly

What can I say, I grabbed a buddy, we dressed effortlessly cool, and we enjoyed the night of networking and socializing. When I attend events like these, I know the importance of giving my card to other creative people, as well as taking theirs too. It has happened in the past, when I have been at a shoot or a wedding and the make-up artist has not turned up or the photographer is stuck in traffic and has had to turn back… these things happen and the show must go on… so to have the contact details of other industry people, is super important. It is also fun to be able to chat to like-minded people, and work with them on future planned projects. I particularly hit it off with a fabulous wedding planner, and a choreographer who does Ian Stuart’s shows. And I found out that he is possibly doing a job that I am pencilled for, working with a great sports brand – so it is a small world, and an even smaller industry. After a couple of hours of sipping champers, and some very strong, pretty blue coloured cocktails, myself and my friend Tilly decided to leave the stunning people chatting to even more stunning, very tall models dressed beautifully in Ian Stuart’s flamboyant pieces, and head off home. We had a fab time, and I am looking forward to hopefully using some of Ian Stuart’s pieces in future shoots, so that I can design amazing hairstyles to compliment his amazing dresses.

Hair suggestions for a square neckline…

Firstly make sure your hairdresser takes into consideration your face shape and silhouette shape of your hairstyle, as well as the line of your necklace or dress. You want your hairstyle to set off your best features!

I personally would definitely go for a hair-up style with a square neckline dress, as wearing your hair down (if long) may look too crowded around your shoulders.

Wearing your hair up will elongate your neckline and and create height, which is definitely needed for a square neck line.

With a structured dress I quite like to see more structured hairstyles so a nice clean chignon, high pony or bun would be lovely. I personally think french pleats with a beehive sets off square neckline really well – It gives that sexy 60’s feel about it!

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!
