We all love short cuts, have you ever turned up at a wedding and though OMG where do I start. I will go through everything with you of “how to manage your morning” so you and your bride both feel at ease with each other, and are confident. Managing your time frame with a run sheet of how the time is to be run. Learn some amazing stunning new looks with the “wow” factor. Your brides need to be wowed!

You may want a morning of blow-drying techniques, or even a morning of braiding. Don’t hesitate to get in contact, and lets have some fun!

Learning the basic hair styling rules from when you began your apprenticeship is where it all starts. Learn or refresh your skills at the art of the backcomb; gain expertise in smoothing and defining; perfect hair roller placement; OR create curls using other styling tools like the ghd or the conical. We start from scratch – no more up styles falling out or curls not lasting.
