We like nothing more than a reason to celebrate and party for women dressing up is a full package make up clothes style and of course hair. Some times down and styled
but for evening party and theatre or just to feel special putting hair up is very special
Working with our clients to find and create that perfect hair Up-do that special look for an evening out or event and of course that very special day the wedding day making her feel princess for a day.
becoming good and indeed comfortable with putting hair up does not come easy to all stylists in-fact some never master the art or feel comfortable doing it. Sad it is such a creative part of what we do and is a service we should be able to offer our clients.
It’s a fear we should face and get over. A skill we should like all others master.
In these out takes session or practice sessions we can work towards the look we are trying to create Practice is not a right or wrong .Its taking time to get used to the hair the way it feels how it sit and likes to fall. You might as i did decided a look such as this to busy and disjointed and no braids! moving on:
We decided both these looks we liked the swirl but not big enough and just a little to much going on again we agreed on this whilst look at digital shots on the comp of each look. takes time but well worth it
The look below we dismissed as being a little to much like a french pleat! as classic but not in this case the look or feel we are trying for discuss with your client how they feel about any look you create this is how you can establish that your working together .
As you can see quite a few looks can be explored. Patients on both sides is key to this process and so very key to the crating and finding the final look. A look that show off colour texture. Some looks I like but others just missed a little something until one just pooed out! It is my opinion that some of these up do looks area mess but i had to post them to show the journey one take sand how this evolves it does not just happen. even top stylist practice a look so it looks easy and it works!
These last two shots show off a look but they also show texture and show off the highlights oh and the beauty of the bride to be. Whilst doing this exercise we had i deal i would not see the dress but would find a look that would do it justice.
We discovered on the day the the pleat and the texture created worked the same way as the fabric of the back of the dress
Master the art be creative have confidence enjoy creating remember it’s not always about money the rewards can be so much greater!!
Be inspired don’t be put off with or by client request master your art always be confident remember practice makes perfect But also relives the unwanted stress of the up /do request.
