6 Mistakes Brides make when planning their wedding hairstyle, and how to avoid them

How to avoid the six common mistakes that brides make when planning their wedding hairstyle

Stepping into the unknown can be scary, that's true whether you are learning to Para glide or wearing your hair in a very different style. In fact you might not normally ever consider this particular "#Hairdo", but it's THAT DAY and you want to make a statement. And why not? you are going to be looking at those photos for years to come and showing them to your grandchildren!

But you may ask yourself how do I get a look I feel comfortable with?, that goes for Hair and also for Make up. I can only advise on the hair, but I have lost count of the times I have seen a bride uncomfortable when she has been somewhere to get her make up done.

So what mistakes do brides tend to make with their hair and how can that be avoided?

1/ They bring photos of a specific style! reason that's a mistake? It's not your hair. Instead bring photos of likes and dislikes, bring shots of your dress and theme of the wedding. Then let the stylist help you and guide you
2/ They don't do a trial run!This is a way of leaving nothing to chance it's a great way for you to gain rapport with your stylist and maybe try the style with the dress
3/Forget to tell the stylist they are using hair pieces or have a veil. Or turn up on the day with accessories that were not discussed. I wrote this piece with the help of our wonderful bridal stylist Seniz, but in my experience of 42 years I have even had Brides turn up having forgot to tell me it was for a wedding "REALLY". Before you buy anything discuss it with your stylist and even have a second trial if needed
4/The bride does not consult with the maid of honour or bridesmaids (this is when everybody is organizing their own hair). Then on the day either they turn up with the same or similar Hair styles, or even worse someone inadvertently up stages the bride
5/ They take pictures at the trial, then drive themselves mad nit picking it. Leave some WOW factor for the day
6/The bride doesn't leave enough time on the day, we often get in really early for brides "ask your stylist if they do early appointments". There is nothing worse than when a style needs an adjustment but the clock won't allow it.

We hope this has helped and Seniz will be writing more bridal hair advice throughout the season

Hair Colour what is and isn't possible

by Administrator

Posted 26 March 2018

What colour can I have on my hair, what would suit me?

I have worked in the hairdressing industry for over 42 years and if I had to sum up in one sentence my biggest challenge! It would be explaining what isn't possible with hair colour. On the face of it that might seem like a strangely negative statement, however I am not in the business of making promises that I cannot keep.I totally understand from the customers perspective that they see a picture and that may be the colour they want. And then you read an advert telling you how easy it is to achieve so you go to a salon, and then the problems begin before you have even started.

Does this sound familiar? they say things like "we will have to cut it all off first" or "Tint does not lighten tint" and "This is not achievable because......."and even "It will be a year before you can get that colour"

Not surprising clients get fed up is it?

When I do a colour consultation my main concern is that the customer understands me and that I am being kind in my explanation. Chances are a long hair-dressy explanation will just confuse somebody so I try to explain things in their terms.Most things can be achieved in time but some just plain cannot. For example the hair is already bleached and they want to go lighter and it is going to break the hair, in that instance I will be very honest but try to offer an alternative. Colour is somewhat like paint different primary colours when mixed make other colours, a prime example would be when you have Blonde hair and you try to stick Brown over it, then it goes Green. This is why it's important to get good advice first, also skin test, skin test, skin test, repeated because it is so important even if you are doing your own colour. I remember some good advice I got years ago " act in haste and repent at your leisure", a colour reaction can be nasty. If you have any general or specific colour questions use the contact us page and we will be happy to try and answer them for you.
