Full Description
I have always prioritised achieving a balance between professionalism and being personable. My expert abilities are essential, but, on what is often the most important days of my brides' lives, I also have to be a friendly face that they can trust and enjoy having around! I always make sure I stay up-to-date with current trends so I can stay on the cutting-edge of my field, and my extensive experience across over 28 years allows me to consistently create stunning wedding looks for my brides. It is important to me to get to know my bride as well as I can before I begin work on her hair; what she likes, what she dislikes, and what she does or doesn't think is achievable, are all valuable things for me to find out. After receiving the initial enquiry, I get a clear understanding over the phone or video chat of the general styles that each bride likes and the details of her wedding. Information is then sent out before they come in for their hair trial appointment at my studio. Each hair trial lasts around 2 hours, giving us plenty of time to chat, get the bride relaxed and comfortable, and try out a range of different styles and ideas that really capture her dreams for the big day. I always reassure my brides that I will be there for them for the duration up until their wedding day, to discuss any changes of heart or new exciting ideas. If the wedding look changes, I am happy to offer additional hair trials at no further cost. My priority is making sure that, come her wedding day, my bride is comfortable, confident, and beautiful!

I will forever recommend Michelle
Michelle’s service was amazing from the very beginning. From the moment I booked Michelle she was always a message away and always so friendly and professional. She gave the best advice not only about my hair itself but also about the wedding day itself! Michelle was fantastic on the day, she did myself, my 5 bridesmaids, mum, nan and auntie! I am sorry for the 5am start though! Michelle’s work was very professional, she is such a lovely happy person to be around all the time! With the most infectious laugh which had us all smiling! She gave really helpful tips for helping out hair to stay in, especially when it came to people hugging me with my veil! She even lent me shampoo and conditioner because I forgot to pack my own! Total lifesaver! All of our hair stayed in brilliantly throughout the day and the entire bridal party looked amazing. I will forever recommend Michelle to everyone I know. She is the perfect woman to have with you on the morning of your wedding! I cannot thank you enough Michelle! You are amazing xx

Perfection, Precision, and Professionalism
Michelle is absolutely fantastic, both a great and talented hair dresser and also as a person. She made the whole getting ready experience seamless and enjoyable. Michelle is an absolute perfectionist, and she spent so much time and effort into getting every single detail looking it's absolute best. On the day she styled my hair as well and my three bridesmaids. We were all so happy with our hair. I would recommend her to anyone who wants absolute perfection, precision and professionalism. Thank you Michelle!!!

Welcoming and Professional!
I would recommend Michelle to anyone and everyone who is getting married and who wants to have amazing hair on their day! I am so fussy and started going to Michelle over a year ago for my first hair trial. Michelle is calm, patient and really provides the bridal experience. I changed my hair style a total of 3 times and the last being only 1 week before the wedding. Michelle was brilliant from start to finish and so welcoming and professional! I knew on my wedding day I was in capable hands and I was thrilled with how mine and my bridesmaids hair turned out! Thank you so much Michelle!x

Professionalism, Experience, and Skill
I would absolutely recommend Michelle to any bride looking for a hair stylist for their wedding. I booked Michelle after doing a lot of online research, and really valued her professionalism, experience and skill. My trial was excellent - Michelle was prepared to spend as much time as necessary and listened carefully to what I wanted. She gave me very good advice on what would work, based on her years of experience. On the day, Michelle and her assistant styled the hair for me and six bridesmaids. They worked flexibly and efficiently, and were relaxed and fun to have around, staying for last minute touch ups before we left for the ceremony. I was over the moon with my hairstyle, which lasted SO well all day, despite the strong winds and rain. I had so many compliments on my hair. My bridesmaids' hair also looked gorgeous. I felt in safe hands throughout the whole process and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michelle.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Timeless Luxury Beautiful Empowering Natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

Most of my brides come to me as a result of recommendations by past brides or other wedding suppliers. Being recommended is the biggest compliment a stylist can receive! Not only has a client enjoyed her experience with Bridal Hair in Hampshire, they want their friends and family to have the same. This always makes me incredibly proud and inspires me to keep working hard, keep my knowledge up-to-date, and keep improving what I can offer my brides.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I try to offer brides in the midst of wedding planning all the advice I can, and for those that have not had the chance to meet me yet, I regularly update my blog with tips, suggestions, and recommendations. The most valuable tip I can give to brides, however, is to keep a level head and celebrate the small victories! Head over to my blog to read more: https://www.bridalhairinhampshire.co.uk/sideline-the-stress-and-focus-on-the-fun/

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After receiving your initial enquiry, I will chat to you over the phone or by video chat so I can get a better idea of your vision for the day. I'll ask for details about your venue, your dress, and any accessories you might have your eye on. Then, you will be invited in for a hair trial in my studio. This is our opportunity to get to know each other a bit better and try out some styles that I hope you'll love. A style is usually settled on at this first appointment, but I always encourage my brides to book in a second, complimentary, hair trial with me closer to their wedding date to make any necessary changes. If you are booking my services for your bridal party too, I would always recommend that at least one bridesmaid visits my studio for a hair trial too. Then, come your wedding day, we are well-prepared to recreate your dream wedding look!

What do you love most about your job?

I am motivated by the opportunity to be creative and to make a difference to people on the most important day of their life. Working in the wedding industry gives me the chance to do just that, in a way that you couldn't find anywhere else. Seeing the emotional bride as she heads towards her wedding ceremony, with the wedding look she has always dreamed of, is always such a special moment, and it is a privilege to have been part of the team to get her and her bridal party ready!

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Always make sure you chat through your ideas and plans thoroughly with your hair and make-up artists. It is so important that, come your wedding day, no further changes to your style need to be made. You can just relax, enjoy yourself, and trust in the decisions that you've made. Your wedding morning is a time filled with excitements and butterflies, but we want to keep nerves to an absolute minimum!

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I have always found that kindness, friendliness, and a dedication to quality is enough to reassure a bride on her wedding day. If I can, I will go above and beyond to make sure she is comfortable, and to help her through any last-minute nerves. I understand the significance of the wedding morning for the bridal party, and so strike a balance between offering a helping hand and letting the bride and her bridesmaids enjoy the experience.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

The most important thing is to relax and enjoy yourself. Everybody knows that the most important thing to wear on your wedding day is a smile! It's my job to make sure that your hair stays looking perfect, so I insist that you leave that to me why you concentrate on having a magical day.
