I love creating many diverse looks from vintage wedding hair to more contemporary styles. Whether you are looking for a classic bridal up-do or glamorous curls with lots of volume, I can create the perfect style to suit you and your bridal party. My goal is to make every brides hair look beautiful, voluminous and full by using a range of techniques I have developed over time.

M A K E  U P

My aim is to listen to your likes and dislikes carefully whilst making useful suggestions in order to achieve a look that will compliment your natural features and overall style. Rather then changing your look completely, my Job is to enhance your natural beauty to ensure you look and feel your absolute best on your wedding day. I work with a range of make up brands to achieve a more youthful glow that will look timeless and elegant on your wedding photos.

Trials are usually carried out at the Laura Holness cosmetology salon based in Kingswinford in the West Midlands (on Friday's). I always encourage all of my clients to prepare some photos/examples for both hair & makeup ready for the trial. At the start of the trial, we will also discuss your wedding hair & make up ideas. Most brides want to look like a more enhanced version of themselves on their wedding day, so we will take into account what you normally do with your make-up and discuss how we can best emphasise your features. 

Choosing your wedding hair & make up is just as important as choosing your dress as it completes your whole look, therefore a pre-wedding trial is a must to not only give you peace of mind but to ensure everything wears well on your skin. Once you are happy with your chosen look, I will take photos to accompany my notes so it is easy to recreate your chosen look on the big day.  We will also talk through the logistics & timing for the wedding morning. If there are time restraints or you have a large bridal party, we may need to discuss the possibility of including an assistant artist to help on the wedding morning (additional charges apply). Trials are usually recommended to be carried out around 2-3 months before your wedding day if possible.

On the day, your stylist will arrive at your chosen location and set up ready to start in the order most convenient for everyone. Usually, make up is applied first depending on how you are having your hair which can be discussed at your trial. Hair is best to work with when freshly washed and dried (either the night before or on the morning is fine). If you have a hot hair appliance, we recommend you smooth out the hair where needed after washing in preparation for styling. This will help ensure a smoother finish especially if you have course or frizzy/curly hair.

Try to avoid mousse, heavy conditioners or products that will weigh your hair down. Please moisturise your face with a (light) moisturiser that you are comfortable wearing, I will then use a primer suitable for your skin before  make up is applied. 

Please note: Usually a minimum of 3-4 people are required to book a Friday/Saturday or Sunday wedding and deposits to save dates are non-refundable. Travel costs may apply depending on distance.
