Stunning, elegant, cool, classy, modern, bohemian - everyone has a different take on what their perfect is, and everyone is unique. Let us create your perfect. We want to help you find the hairstyle that will make you feel nothing less than beautiful on your Wedding Day. It is very challenging as there is so much out there to choose from. Up-do's, braids, half-up, down, chignons - the choices are endless. You want something on trend, but you also want something timeless that you will still love in your photos in years to come. Wedding hair requires just as much attention as your dress when it comes to choosing which style you want. For Brides we always recommend a trial and we come to you in the comfort of your own home. We go through a detailed consultation on the type of style you are looking for and the one that will fit in with your dress and style of the wedding. We will then trial as many styles as we need until we find the one you love. We also do trials for Bridesmaids, Flowergirls and anyone else that would like one. The trial is the perfect opportunity to discuss Product, Accessories and timings for the Wedding Day. We have many accessories you can try before you commit to buying any. We can also advise on adding volume and length with extensions and padding. We will work closely with your make-up artist and any other professionals to ensure smooth running on the day. On the Wedding Day we will stay with you until just before the ceremony for any last minute touch-ups and to secure the veil if needed. On your big day we travel to wherever you are getting ready, whether at the Venue or at home. Although we are based in Kent, we are happy to travel to anywhere in the country. We can book more than one stylist or bring an assistant for larger bookings. Please view our website for more details and an extensive gallery of our work. You will also find inspiration on our Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest pages.

What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was for an American Girl who came over for a Kent Country Wedding. We had been recommended to her but she was only flying in with her tribe just 3 days before the Wedding - so no time for a trial which always makes me slightly nervous. However, we had the most fun-filled morning. The girls were all such fun and they were all completely different so we got to do unique hair for everyone to suit their own style. They had hired a beautiful country mansion in which to get ready and the atmosphere was amazing. The bridesmaids were relaxed yet made sure the bride had a morning to remember and we really felt like part of their group. It was such a pleasure and honour to be part of the Bride's most special day and to witness such a tight girl clan who made the Bride feel as special and loved as she deserved to be.

Contemporary, Stylish, Beautiful, Fresh, Stunning
What about your business are you most proud of?
Whenever we receive feedback from a bride we are always complimented on how much time we spent beforehand making sure we understood the bride's own personal style and what they were looking to achieve at their Wedding. We want to know how they envision themselves on their big day so we can translate this into the hair they dreamed of.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the planning and do you what you both want to do and try not to involve too many other people. This keeps your Wedding exactly how you want it and nobody else. It makes your planning considerably more stress free!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always meet the bride for a trial and we have an in-depth chat so I get to know her personality, her style and her dreams for her day. We look at photos of hair for inspiration and to get a feel of what she likes and also what she doesn't like. I look at her dress and the venue so we can tie the hair in with the whole look as much as possible. We then trial as many styles as we need to until we find the one she loves. We talk accessories, flowers, veils, product and timings for the day aswell. We remain in contact until the big day and I can help source extensions or anything else that is needed. We also go through Bridesmaids and hair for anyone else that is having their hair done and also have trials for them if needed. Before the day I make sure the Bride knows exactly what time I will be arriving and a rough schedule. I will also liaise with the Make-Up Artist and anyone else needed to for timings etc.
What do you love most about your job?
Having the privilege of being so close to a Bride on one of the most special days of her life. Not many people (apart from her partner) get to spend that much time with the Bride as she has to divide herself amongst everyone, yet we get to spend at least a couple of hours with her and her tribe, seeing her experience all the emotions that are there on the Wedding morning and getting to play a hand in making her feel her best. That's what I love most about my job.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Prep! Your skin and your hair - make sure you start looking after them immediately. A strong base is the best foundation for everything.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I will always be calm myself which helps the bride. I stay in the background a lot as this is her moment to share with everyone around her but I do make sure I talk her through everything I'm doing and show her at stages, if needed, just to reassure her. Being so close to the Bride while I am doing her hair I get to sense if the nerves are approaching or if she is starting to panic. I will always talk to her and there is always an opportunity for her take 5 minutes if something needs her attention or approval. I make sure I tell her where we are at for timing and that I am in control of everyone that is having their hair done so that is one less thing she needs to worry about.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
You will be looking great whatever you do throughout the day as I feel all Brides just glow and it's so clear and wonderful to see.
