I’ve always loved doing hair, especially from when I started my apprenticeship, but as my career progressed I got more into styling and was inspired by other hairdressers in the industry. I loved their work and I just wanted to learn.
I am constantly learning and doing courses with different people or finding out the way others do things and I take on different aspects from different people.
I’m a bit of a hybrid hairdresser in that I’ve learnt from so many different industry professionals and I’ve taken different pieces from each of them and made it my own.
My styling is quite structured but still effortless. All of my styling has a certain aesthetic to it and it holds its shape really beautifully, but it still has that movement.
My signature styles are definitely the ponytail, people often say that they can recognise my ponytails on an Instagram feed which is really lovely to know that that’s what I’m known for, as well as glam waves and my signature bridal bun, they’re my three styles that I get asked for often.
You still want to feel like you. It can be easy to get caught up in the moment and look at a picture and think, “that’s what I want”, but you still need to feel like “you” and be the best version of yourself. You still want to feel comfortable in your own skin.
I will suggest at your trial to part your hair where you always part it. Day to day you part it where you like to wear it, so on your wedding day it should be exactly the same. Don’t change your part just because you like the photo that you’re looking at.
On your wedding day it's important to take into consideration how you normally like to wear your hair. So if you’re a person who normally likes to pull their hair up on top of their head, do a style that is a little bit higher, because whether or not you realise it you naturally pull your hair into a spot that makes you look the most aesthetically pleasing.
On the day, I will create a more enhanced and prettier version, because it will make you feel comfortable in your own skin without questioning what you’ve chosen.
Picking a hairdresser based on the type of work they produce is really important, not just because they are available for your day. Take the time to look through their social media and reviews to get a feel for their aesthetic and see if they are the right fit for you.
Pick your hairstylist because you love the work that they love to do.
