Back2myroots : A place to share thoughts and grow idea’s

Wedding hair and the Bride:  Such a big day for any women fairy tale day princess for a day.



Princess for a day every Brides dream and so easily shattered when it comes to the look the style.

As stylists we must take the time to communicate and listen to the bride.Share a vision have consultation and practice.




What we want to see is a happy Bride on her wedding day stress free guests looking on in ore of the bride her dress her hair her make up. The full package.

What a great way for you as stylist to advertise your talent, get recommendations and referrals. Stylist who do not enjoy putting hair up the wedding stresses should not do weddings. Especially if! MONEY IS THE ONLY DRIVER!



Classic looks that stand the test of time and stay in place all day. Elegant soft and practical. An up do can look like apiece of art.


Work with the lines of the dress if possible! in this instance i did not see the dress but lucky for me the effect worked so well.



finally evening looks elegant soft but put up to stay. Showing off colour shape texture and form a classic.



Then we can also have the extreme all is possible maybe not for a bride but for  a look it’s hair have fun

so have fun .push your self work with your clients. Mike B2MR.

Wedding Hair day Up do’s


Created as a source of advise education knowledge skill experience a place to share thoughts post comments and idea’s on matters relating to hair colouring skill and techniques and anything industry related.


For the last year i have been working with my daughter to find and create that perfect wedding hair Up-do that special look making her feel princess for a day.

I have tried to keep a record of this journey we tool together as a stylist in some ways more pressure in others a very special unique position to be in, my parting gift to my daughter an Up do forged from love a look worthy of our journey up to this special moment,

As i write this i also reflect on what an important day this truly is and we as stylist should not take this


The out takes session one we decided 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




below the last look we dismissed as being a little to much like a french pleat! as classic but not for this look.





As you can see quite a few looks explored patients on both sides but well worth it all the looks show off colour texture but 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 were the end of day one and i think show quite the journey of how things evolve shapes form ideas come to life


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!! Mike B2MR
