This year is going so fast , I can’t quite believe its nearly Christmas. I promised myself in January that I would try and update the blog more often . I have failed miserably, but only because its easier to update my Facebook page and Instagram. I can do that from my phone , in between my regular hairdressing clients and its is done before I’ve finished work for the day. My main problem is that I’m not very technically minded and the lovely Leah who usually does all the technical stuff for me has been a bit busy having a baby!
So, until I learn how to add new mini galleries to my Real Brides pages, you can keep up with my hairdressing ( & otherwise) antics and updates on Instagram here and Facebook here
In the meantime here’s a little taster of what’s to come:

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.
Last week I managed to secure some shampoo and conditioners in mini sizes from the luxury boutique brand Unite for the Suzanne Neville designer day goody bags at Miss Bush Bridalwear . (more about that day in a later post ). I’ve had my eye on this brand for a while and I took the plunge of buying quite a lot of the new styling range. 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.
I tried some of the products out last weekend whilst I was away in Bournemouth and here are my ramblings on the subject……………
