Cathy booked her hair and make-up artists through Gemma Sutton, and on this wedding I worked closely with Emma and Emily who are also a part of Gemma’s Pro Team. Cathy decided to have her bridesmaids in different dresses but they all wore blush pink which created the perfect balance of unity and differentiation. The dresses were beautifully complemented by the gorgeous bouquets by Cherubs Floral Design.
Cathy’s bridal party
As the bridesmaids were all in different dresses, it didn’t make sense for the girls all to have matching hairstyles. Cathy was a very relaxed bride and was very happy for the bridesmaids to choose their own style. So as each bridesmaid sat in my hair chair, they showed me images of hairstyles they really liked and I took inspiration from their ideas. It is so useful as an artist to be given imagery of styles you like, it’s a great starting point!
All of the bridesmaids wanted a soft curl through their hair, so I prepped each bridesmaid with the Percy & Reed Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse before tonging the hair with my Babyliss wand. When curling hair, I always use L’Oreal’s Techni.ART Pli spray which works as a heat protectant, as well as having heat activated memory so the curl stays big and bouncy. To give gentle volume in the root, I usually sprinkle a little of Bumble and Bumble’s Prêt-à-Powder into the crown of the hair. The powder also really helps to give grit and grip to any style which really helps on freshly washed hair! To finish each of these styles, I used a light hairspray (the Kenra Professional hairspray smells like strawberries FYI) and a salt spray so the hair had a matte finish with a lived in texture.
I shall leave you with Juliet’s stunning images – I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Until next time, cheerio chums!x
