Choosing the right hairstylist for you

Choosing the right hairstylist for your wedding hair.

There are many to choose from and you want to make the right choice. It’s not like getting  your haircut in the salon  on the high street and if you don’t like what they’ve done , it’ll grow and you’ll try somewhere else next time! You don’t want to have trial after trial with lots of hairdressers.

Recommendations are good way to start, I get most of my work by word of mouth. Ask your bridal boutique, make up artist, even the photographer who they like to work with.

Venue recommendations are a bit different and vary massively.  Some  venues will have a few suppliers that they know personally and can vouch for their standard of work and customer service and it really is a personal recommantion.

Other venues have glossy brochures with their  ‘recommended suppliers’. These brochures are usually produced by an outside company and suppliers will have paid  a fee to be included. Many  have ‘our supplier list’ which also require a fee to be on their list. Whilst this doesn’t mean they are not fantastic suppliers in their own right, (I know for a fact some of them are brilliant , as  I recommend them myself),  it’s a bit misleading to call it a recommendation.  Its always worth asking a venue  if suppliers have  paid to be on this list.

I’m not really faithful to one particular brand. I  like various hairsprays and volumising mousses and use a mix of professional and high street brands.

                                        Well, this may be about to change.
