Lucy, contacted me wanting a cool, modern, bohemian hair and makeup look for her wedding day. At our initial consultation Lucy explained she wanted her skin looking immaculate and bronzed, regardless of the weather, her eyes to look sexy and smokey and her very fine hair to look fuller, glossy and wavy with beachy texture.
Check those lashes! Lucy had inserts pre wedding prep and I filled in any gaps ( this is totally normal, they exfoliate over time if you’re washing your face properly .) Lucy like myself had a distinct distain for make up wipes and to my utter joy she loved washing and pampering her face properly. During our consultation and during the trial she ended up with a shopping list of goodies I recommended for her skin type and desired look.
Lucy’s gorgeous Maids and Mumma also opted for some hair glamour. Annie had super thick and super long hair. She wanted bohemian waves with a plait on one side with flowers. Fiona who you can see here next to Lucy’s Mum, wanted something Downton Abbey inspired with a secret garden, bohemian edge, reflecting the vibe of the day and her outfit. We gave her a soft chignon which was dotted with gypsophila and baby’s breath. Laura, another lady of the super fine hair crew had a blow dry, tousled soft waves and a side plait to suit her short bob. This, again was adorned with flowers. Lucy’s Mumma had a glam blow dry to let her incredible 70’s inspired YSL outfit do the talking.
As a fine hair grower, wearer and styling specialist I gave Lucy an oomphy blow dry with thickening sprays ( Mark Hill and L’Oreal ) and set into Babyliss rollers. This ensured absolute maximum volume.
