What makes your product/service so unique in the North West?

We have been doing hair and make for brides since the salon very first opened in 1990. Our team are masters of beautiful, wearable hair and we pride ourselves on the attention to detail and the personalisation of every hairstyle we send out. We were finalists for the coveted title of British Hairdresser of the Year in the North West 2013 and work each season at London Fashion week, and for publications including Vogue, Red and Elle magazine regularly which means we know what the trends are, in fact we are creating them. We can tailor a bespoke wedding package for brides and we offer free consultations with our hairdressers and beauticians in which we can look at every aspect of your prep for the big day including cut, colour, skin analysis and home care regime.
What would your 3 top tips for Brides-to-be?

1.Be the most beautiful version of yourself (don’t try to do something that’s not you, or that you don’t feel comfortable in, remember you have to look at those pictures forever), 2.Be prepared (have a trial of your hair and make up before the big day so you know exactly what you’re getting, how it feels and most importantly will it last)

3.Finally don’t buy your head dress before you’ve chosen your hairstyle (many brides make the mistake of buying a headdress before deciding on the hair and then the hairdresser is trying to find a style that works with the headdress rather than one which best suits you, your face shape and your hairtype. The headdress should be an add on to the hair rather than the other way around)

What is your fantasy wedding venue?

Dana Point, Southern California, if i was getting married again it would definitely be there on a cliff top over looking the Pacific Ocean a world away from St Alberts’ church in Cantril Farm where I was actually married ha!
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to the show on the 24th of April.

So if you follow us on FB you may have seen the group for the hoedown –

Myself, mum and sister are going to Cambodia to work with street children and share our creative skills with them this coming January. So we decided to do a HOEDOWN. We have never been to a hoedown or put on a charity event of this scale so its all pretty exciting!

As soon as we put it out there we got tonnes of donations and a very kind group called Craft Creative have been supporting the event. – go on their site to see all of the things they offer, including hen party ideas and workshops.

 How amazing is this Kissing booth they made for the HOEDOWN!!

As you can see the quality of their work is fabulous.
