Wedding HairBy Emma J Steven
Every girl wants to look a million dollars on her big day, and one of Emma’s passions is creating truly stunning wedding hair for brides and their bridal parties across the Midlands and beyond. Whether at home or at your venue, Emma will be on hand to make sure your morning preparations go smoothly and that you and your bridal party – bridesmaids, mothers and flower girls – all look picture perfect for the day ahead with hair to wow. Emma’s wedding hair service begins with an in-depth consultation to discover exactly what you’re looking for from a wedding hair style, as well as a trial to create the perfect ‘do. On the day itself, Emma will make sure there’s plenty of time to work her magic on the bride, as well as every member of the bridal party if required. Emma’s warm and friendly demeanour, boundless creativity and calming presence mean she is the perfect stylist to make your wedding hair dreams come true.
After struggling to find the right hairdresser to create her fairytale princess ‘do for her big day, Becky turned to Emma on the recommendation of a friend. Listening carefully to Becky’s request for glamorous, bouncy curls, Emma used clip-in extensions to add volume to Becky’s hair in order to create the Hollywood red carpet-worthy style Becky was looking for.
In the run-up to the big day, Emma worked with Becky to create the perfect colour – a rich, warm brunette – and then to match the extensions seamlessly to her natural hair.
As well as creating Becky’s dream ‘do, Emma also styled her four bridesmaids with elegant side-swept up-dos and created looks for the mother of the bride and Becky’s little flower girl.
Becky says: “Emma worked tirelessly on the morning of the wedding to make sure we all looked just right; while a couple of other hairdressers I’d tried had struggled to get the look I was after, Emma got it straight away and I couldn’t have been happier with everything on the day.”
After trusting Emma with her hair for the best part of a decade, there was only one person Amy was going to turn to help create the vintage Hollywood glam up-do she was looking for on her big day. And with a bridal party including four bridesmaids, a flower girl and the mother of the bride all needing transformations too, Emma’s task was a sizeable one.
During the hair trial, Emma worked with Amy’s scrapbook of ideas to create several options which matched the glamorous look Amy was after, as well as helping Amy’s mum to decide on the right look for the day.
On the big day, Emma’s magic transformed Amy’s mid-length hair into a voluminous, vintage-style up-do. The bridesmaids were stunning with loose, boho waves, with the flower girl to match, while Emma created a timeless, elegant up-do for the mother of the bride.
Amy says: “Emma was a dream to work with, both in the run-up to our wedding and on the day itself. At our hair trial, Emma created several styles which were all just what I was looking for, so it was hard to choose between them. In the end, the style Emma conjured up for the big day was more perfect than I could have ever imagined. She used clever tricks to create height and volume, which really gave the end result the ‘wow’ factor, and even after a full day of celebrations and a night of dancing, my hair still looked amazing. Emma was the first person to arrive for our morning preparations and she was a wonderful person to have around, putting everyone at ease and making everyone relax and enjoy the pampering while she worked her magic. I can’t think of a better stylist to have on your big day.”
