The Best of British Hair 2012

After much anticipation, I was super excited to see the finalists' collections for The British Hairdresser of the Year 2012. I absolutely loved both of Skyler MacDonald's collections, Anne Veck, Tracey Devine, and Kay McIntyre. Here are some images that stood out for me.


Leanne

Another fabulous wedding! Leanne is such a lovely girl! I really appreciate her taking the time to send me some professional shots. As you can see, she was absolutely gorgeous on her wedding day.

It's always great to see how the day unfolds.......

Pared down shots

After a long and pretty intense day shooting we captured these

Beautiful. A little like a Calvin Klein shoot.
I have already booked my next shoot with Hamilton Kerr , happening very soon!  Watch this space!

Simply Elegant

I love these professional photographs by Nicholas of  Nicholas Frost Photography.

My Bride, Fiona, was set on having her hair up so we focussed on up styles only at her trial.
It was only at her last dress fitting that she had a change of heart and decided to leave it down.  I love it as it's so elegant. Sometimes keeping it simple creates more impact :-).

Vintage flower power

I keep looking at this image from my photoshoot with Hamilton Kerr Studio.

Vintage hairdressing, retro, hairstyles, competitions, hair up, updo,
I think it's so pretty.

I had set my models hair for the Marie Antoinette style but her little pin curls reminded me of the vintage flowery swimming caps ladies used to wear. I added a lot of flower clips and accessories and some ribbon that I had and this is the end result!

What I found during this shoot is that the 'spur of the moment' shots, the unplanned looks that happened because of the process, were the looks that worked out best!!

Margaret Anne applied a dewy base and bold, pink cheeks for a girly flushed look. The white lashes and brows were something we wanted to try out and I'm glad we did! Louise Kerr thought the rosey background would be perfect for this so she used a filter in post production to give the vintage tone to the picture.

As you can see, she is a photographic lighting expert so I'm over the moon with the end result.

Editorial Hair Shoot - Cleopatra

I was smiling from ear to ear when I received this final image!

It has exceeded my expectations in every way. A huge thanks of course to Louise, Kyle from Hamilton Kerr Studio and Jenny from Jenny-Rose Photography. I love the lighting and Louise selected the perfect shot! There were so many to choose from.

Fashion hair shoot, hairdressers, model, hair competitions, trend, style magazine

The initial idea came from the braided styles that are popular just now but I wanted to take it a step further.
I used hair extensions and padding to create the shape. Contrasting hairpieces in golden blonde were weaved through to give this weaved effect. It was instantly a really strong almost tribal look but the gold with the black reminded us of Cleopatra.  The inspiration board was full of strong images and bronzed make up  focussing on highlighting and contouring. Margaret Anne achieved this perfectly.

I love Nicole here, so elegant and poised.
I hope you love it too!

Summer Wedding Hairstyles


I can't think when I last posted some pictures. It was probably around March, so here they are.

This summer has been a busy one. I have really enjoyed working with all my brides and bridesmaids from Summer 2012 - not forgetting the photographers, makeup artists, venues and many other wedding industry suppliers that I have had the pleasure of meeting along the way.
