Fortunately, as Pam Wrigley (our founder and head trainer) is still very much a part of the action, working as hair and makeup artist to brides and many VIP clients every week and winning awards for her tremendous achievements left right and centre, there’s no stagnation in the looks we teach our students. Pam is totally on the ball and up to date with the hottest bridal looks and she’s made it her mission to share it all with you!

Because of this, we’re always updating our 2-day bridal hair course (and forever adding new tutorials to our online bridal hair course too!), so our students not only learn how to prep the hair – using tongs, wands, heated rollers, how to secure hairstyles so they never fall out and incorporate lovely veils and accessories, but they also learn how to create the latest looks to ‘wow’ their clients. Alongside the most fashionable bridal hair styles, we also teach those timeless classics: Beautiful waves and curls, half up/half down dos, textured up-dos for both long and short hair!) and of course, the ever-popular braids.

Regardless of your experience when you enter the studio on day 1, you’ll leave us feeling confident enough to turn your hand to almost any bridal hair style you can think of, armed with the very best techniques learned throughout Pam’s 25 years in the wedding industry.

Summer Brides Wedding Hair and Make Up Inspiration 2018

We’re in the midst of wedding season which means an influx of summer brides wanting the perfect hair and make up for their Big Day and it’s our job, as the experts, to help them make the right choice.

Your bride will want to feel confident, comfortable and beautiful and her hair and makeup will go a long way in achieving that. There are many things to consider when helping her choose the final look and while the style of hair and make up needs to fit the feel of the wedding it also needs to be true to the bride’s natural style. She will want to look like the best version of herself and look great in all the wedding photos too, so you’ve got to create the best of both worlds! Even if she wants a natural style, it has to be defined enough to work on camera.

Experimentation at the trial run is key to finding a look they love and they may even end up opting for a style they would never have considered before! So listen to what they want, try it out, but don’t be afraid to offer your opinion too. It’s important that you find out where they’re getting married, the style of dress, details they want to show off, what they consider their best feature and parts they may want to hide to help you figure out a look they’ll love. Don’t push it though. At the end of the day, remember that they are the star of the show, so don’t overrun their ideas if it’s something they really want. It’s your job to make them feel a million dollars!

HIGH BUNS & TOP KNOTS

 

The last thing summer brides want to worry about on their wedding day is overheating! So a high bun can work as a fab suggestion for a summer bride that will keep her feeling fresh all day long.

Whether your bride wants an elegant style or a more relaxed vibe – you can style it to suit either. Top knots high on the head are great if your bride has a backless dress or detail she wants exposed. If your bride is on the shorter side, they add height and lengthen the neck – super flattering.

 

RELAXED UP-DO

 

If your bride is having a hazy summer wedding and wants to look beautifully relaxed, this is a lovely style of up-do to suggest, but be aware that these relaxed and ‘effortless’ styles actually take a fair bit of work to get spot on and make stay in place, so be sure you’re well practised.

Allowing a few delicate strands to fall loose, gently framing the face, adds to this soft, romantic look.

Incorporate real flowers as your bride’s accessory (affordable and beautiful! Have them ask their florist to wire the blooms for ease of use) or keep it all-natural.

This look is so versatile and can be kept neat or truly messy whilst still looking stunningly summery. Cleverly placed pins using Pam’s ‘up and over technique’ make this look achievable for all hair types.

Sign up to our online course to learn how to secure your styles like a pro!

HALF UP/HALF DOWN

 

If your bride wants to keep her hair off her face but still have the hair down look, this is the look to suggest. It can be chilled and relaxed like the up-do or super intricate. If your bride is undecided, give her an up-do that can be un-pinned for a fresh night time look! She can dance the night away with a whole new style.

 

CURLS & WAVES

 

Get to know your bride, if she spends her life with her hair down, she won’t thank you for pulling her hair into an up-do. Curls and waves are the perfect style, she can have beautiful wedding hair whilst feeling like herself. Defined Hollywood waves or loose, natural curls – you can make this style suit any bride.

BOHO BRAIDS

 

I’m sure you’ve been asked a million times for Boho braids, they really are a true wedding classic. They’re effortlessly chic and on a hot day, they’ll keep the bride looking and feeling cool! The best thing about braids is that they suit all hair types – long, short, straight and curly. You’re unlikely to have to tell a bride that this won’t work for them!

Keep them loose, romantic and soft or give them edge by keeping them structured. Deconstructed plaits are the BIG thing this summer – perfect for adding flowers or other adornments. You can really give your bride an extra something with a expertly placed accessory. Another selling point is the gorgeous waves your bride will be left with once they’re removed so she can go off on her honeymoon looking great with zero effort.

Braid Like A Pro!

FLOWER CROWNS

 

Another wedding classic and ideal for a summer wedding. Liaise with your bride and her florist to choose flowers that match her bouquet, to help tie the whole wedding theme together, or pick a few wild flowers for a personal touch. The great thing about flower crowns is that they can completely transform any style and create many different looks. Understated or big and bold, this is the perfect summer brides wedding accessory.

 

CROWN BRAID

 

One of the best styles for keeping hair off the brides face and neck and one that will last all day and night, when done right! As with other styles, your bride’s crown braid can be as neat as you want or completely deconstructed. You can in as many accessories as your bride wants or can be kept beautifully simple. Leave curls cascading and combine it with a crown braid on top for a twist on the half up/half down style. So many options mean you’ll keep any type of bride happy!

Beautiful Makeup for Summer Brides…

Get Your Summer Bridal Makeup Down…

NATURAL RADIANCE

 

Summer brides need a lovely, natural glow but they are often worried that they will need a  heavy face of make up on a hot day to achieve that, if their skin is anything less than perfect.

Fortunately, a buildable, tinted moisturiser offers a light alternative with coverage. If your bride wants to look organic, let those freckles show, a la Meghan Markle! Natural and flawless. With a little skill, it is possible to achieve the same look with a full foundation. Your bride can be reassured that she can look light and effortless while feeling comfortable with a heavier coverage.

 

SUN-KISSED

 

With cleverly and carefully applied bronzer in all the right places, you can make your bride look sun-kissed. Add contour and highlight, but in moderation and blend, blend, blend! Less is more with this look. If your bride has chosen a high bun or top knot, this makeup look will keep her looking elegant and radiant.

 

DEWY

 

Make your summer brides glow for her wedding day. Dewy makeup keeps your bride fresh-faced and looking like the best version of herself. If your bride doesn’t usually wear lots of make up, a dewy face can help her feel comfortable while still looking like a goddess. Select make up that’ll keep her glowing all day so she won’t loose her shine.

summer brides

BARELY THERE

 

Another great look for a bride who doesn’t wear much make up or is worried about heaviness. Great for a casual wedding or if your bride is opting for a bold, detailed hairstyle. Make her skin your focus, you want a beautiful base and natural eye colours to compliment her eye colour. Don’t feel you need to avoid fake lashes, individual lashes can look very real whilst still adding that something extra. Make your bride looks like she’s radiating love and happiness.

 

BRIGHT LIP

 

This look really needs your expertise – be sure you help your bride select a shade that flatters her skin. A bright lip can add a pop of colour without having to go overboard with the makeup. With the right choice, it can suit any bride, age doesn’t need to be an issue. A bold lip can be a great look for a mature bride.

 

BOLD EYES

 

The classic smoky eye is a wedding staple but for a summer wedding, add a little twist! If you have a brave bride – go ALL out. If she’s a little more hesitant but still wants to introduce come colour, suggest a coloured eye-liner.

 

ETHEREAL

 

Light pinks, barely-there nudes and rosy cheeks create a beautifully, uncomplicated ethereal look. It is the ultimate summer wedding look. Boho-braids are a perfect match. A dash of highlighter in the inner eye add a real pop while keeping the whole look effortless.

How To Create Meghan Markle’s Bridal Hair Style

Meghan and Harry may be settling in to their life together as a married couple, but we’re still thinking about that gorgeous wedding day look and we’re willing to bet that many brides-to-be all over the world will be too, for a very long time.

When a wedding a huge as this one hits our media, it’s up to us as bridal hairstylists and bridal makeup artists to be on the ball and have that look figured out to a tee, so when a bride asks you for something just like it (and at least one bride will ask you for something just like it, at some point!) you’ll be confident and raring to go.

We covered Meghan’s beautiful, barely-there makeup in a previous blog and today, we’re looking at that effortless hairdo. Soft, face-framing and ‘very girl next door’ with all the grace and sophistication expected of a Duchess – this is one style that we’re absolutely loving! As demonstrated, despite its casual air, it fits like a dream into a regal, cathedral setting but it would look equally appropriate at a laid back barn or back garden affair too.

The trick to achieving a look like this is not so much it getting the hair to look the way you want it, but rather, getting it to stay that way! Deliberately falling tendrils and a loose appearance takes some serious skill to style in way that keeps it looking just as fabulous by the end of the night as it does when the bride walks down the aisle.

On our 2 Day Bridal Hair Course, we make sure to take our students through everything they need to know on proper securing and more often than not, even those who have been in the industry for years come away having learned need-to-know tips on creating the perfect foundations for a style, which Pam has developed during her 30 years as an award-winning bridal hairstylist.

Can’t make it to a course? Don’t worry! Pam has also put together in-depth tutorials as part of her online course taking you through these essential points step-by-step.

 

To discover how to create the look faultlessly, with all the little expert tricks and tips you need to make your style really stand out from the crowd, sign up to our online course or book onto one of our 2 day or 4 day bridal hair courses today!

 

To get you started though, here are the basics:

  1. To begin the style, you need to prep the base. For this you have two options: a glossy, bouncy blow dry (this is what Meghans hairstylist went for) or set the hair in heated rollers for lift and volume.
  2. Part the hair in the centre using your tail comb and pull back to the crown.
  3. Next, you want to add some loose waves through the hair using large barrel tongs (32mm). Make sure to wrap the hair loosely and alternate the direction to keep the curls looking natural and relaxed.
  4. Once you’ve achieved the desired movement and texture, pull the hair back into a tight, low ponytail at the nape of the head. Fix with hairspray.
  5. Twist sections of the hair around the ponytail to create the low bun. Loosely wrap these sections around the ponytail to create the voluminous undone bun.
  6. Finish by loosening up sections around the face for a really soft effect. Finish with your Elnett Professional hairspray.

Timeless Braided Styles: Elegant Plaits & Braids for Mature Brides

Plaits & Braids – Timeless, always in fashion and great for all ages! Knowing how to create gorgeous plaits & braids and styles that incorporate them is a must for every Bridal Hair Stylist out there.

Learn How to Braid Today!

Sign up to CBH Online for HD Braiding Tutorials

It is a common misconception to think that plaits and braids are only for the younger generations but this couldn’t be more wrong! Whilst it’s true that you can create some really contemporary braided styles that would suit a young, edgy bride down the ground and messy Boho glamour looks that are usually requested by younger clients, braids aren’t just for fashion looks – you can also create extremely elegant styles or period dos using classic braiding techniques that your more mature brides are going to absolutely love.

 

As a Bridal Hair Stylist, it’s your job to be able to point your clients in the right direction when it comes to designing a style that works perfectly for them, but many stylists find themselves a bit ‘stuck in a rut’ when it comes to styling older brides, offering them the same traditional looks time and again. If this sounds like you, it’s time to break that habit! Change things up a bit for your mature brides and have some nifty braiding tricks up your sleeve that you can really ‘wow’ them with.

Braided Style Inspiration for Mature Brides

The Braided Bun

 

A favourite among all brides, both young and old, and one of the first looks we’ll teach you how to create and play with on our Bridal Hair Course. The Braided Bun is one of those incredibly versatile hair styles that can be the perfect choice for a traditional bride getting married in a cathedral or very formal setting or just slightly tweaked to look the part at a festival themed wedding or in a beautiful, rustic barn.

Not only is this ‘do fantastic for all ages and backdrops, but it’s also a really easy one for you to put together.

Make it your own by toying with the plait positioning, type and and perhaps even amounts. A single, chunky Dutch braid wrapped over the top of the bun base looks fab, as does something more intricate such as a bun with fishtail braids woven throughout. Have fun with it!

Watch & Learn:

Want to create a really big bun? Here’s how to get the look you want…

Grecian Style

 

Plaits are a gorgeous addition to Grecian styles, whether tumbling or secured into an up-do. This is a really elegant style that works beautifully for mature brides wanting a style that is feminine and graceful without being too ‘girlish’.

Wear it down with plenty of volume at the crown and tumbling curls beneath a waterfall braid, or style it up with a fishtail plait and loose strands softening the frame of the face.

Watch & Learn:

Take a look at our short video tutorial ‘Backcombing Made Easy’ to learn how to create amazing root life and volume for your styles.

Braided Chignon

 

The Chignon is a style that every bridal hair stylist out there should be familiar with as it works so well for all ages, hair types, hair lengths and face shapes.

Traditionally kept sleek and then often adorned with hair accessories, you can easily add to this look by including a French Braid or two to the side of the parting, reaching right back to the nape of the neck. Your mature brides will love it!

Watch & Learn:

Is your client’s style secure? Here’s how to check…

Dual Textured Side-Braid

 

A side-swept braid is a glamourous style that many mature brides with lovely long locks will adore. It is super-sexy whilst still feeling ‘age-appropriate’ – something that lots of older brides covet but think is out of the question.

By setting the hair in rollers first to create plenty of root lift and texture throughout the hair, you’ll be off to a good start with extra grip for that braid and the result will be a finished style that is full of life and thickness.

Pull the hair over to the desired side and then begin your plait with a French Braid on each side to pull the hair back away from the face. Once you reach the nape of the neck, clip the hair to avoid in unravelling and transition into the braid of your choice.

The number one this to remember is: DONT PANIC!! Stay calm and refer to the ‘Quick Tips’ section of Create Beautiful Hair Online to get the answers you need, as you need them.

Fringes & Bangs

Don’t get caught up on what the models fringe looks on Instagram – just get it right for your client and take your time finding out what her hair wants to do.

Don’t fight the direction of the hair, work with it and allow the hair to ‘show you’ where it naturally wants to sit.

 

Hair Extensions & Instagram

Don’t feel intimidated by the impressive styles you see on Instagram!

90% of the styles you see on Instagram and Pinterest have been created using hair extensions and you can create them too with just a little bit of practice.

Tricks of the trade

It’s easy to create extra volume and oomph, so don’t worry if your client has thin or fine hair.

  • Use Donuts for extra volume when creating soft messy buns for short hair. When positioned correctly you won’t be able to see the padding at all.
  • American Dream and Hair Rehab supply excellent quality hair extensions and we always use them on our Bridal Hair Courses. Join one of our Bridal Hair Courses and get great discounts on any American Dream product!

Bridal Hairstylist Hacks: Tips from the Experts You Need to Know!

No matter whether you’re just starting out on your journey as a wedding hairstylist or you’ve been at it for years, it’s never too late (or too soon!) to learn all the expert bridal hairstylist hacks that make your life working with clients and creating beautiful hairstyles just that little bit easier.

 

It’s a tall order having to create the most beautiful hairstyle someone has ever had and it can be quite a daunting prospect if you’re worried about getting it right. How do you really know if a client loves her hairstyle at the trial or if she’s just being polite? What can you do to make creating hairstyles easier and more likely to stay put? And is it really possible to make limp, fine hair appear voluminous and gorgeous?

 

These are just a few of the questions that all wedding hairstylists have whirring through their brains all the time!

 

Make your job more enjoyable and your hairstyles more successful with these bridal hairstylist hacks:

Choose Your Products Wisely

Finding the perfect products to work with really only comes from years of experience, but luckily for those of you reading this, Pam is happy to share the knowledge she has gained from over 20 years working in the wedding hair and makeup industry so you don’t have to wait to find out!

 

One of our top bridal hairstylist hacks is about which hairspray you use. If you’re already styling hair, you’ll know that hairspray plays a big part during the preparation, creation and finishing and because so much hairspray is required, you might find that your client’s hair is ending up a bit more wet or crispy than you would ideally like. So, how do you beat this?

 

Pam’s top tip is not to use less hairspray, but to use the right hairspray!

 

“I love Elnett hairspray – it’s a classic for a reason – but the stuff you can buy in the shops is too heavy and wet for creating stunning bridal hairstyles. Instead, I only ever use Elnett Professional, which can be purchased at hairstylist wholesalers rather than on the high street. This product has a much finer mist spray action and whilst the hairspray still has a good, strong hold, it doesn’t weigh down the hair like the regular hairspray does”

Keep Your Pins in Place

Many hairstylists struggle with keeping their hairstyles in place once they’re created and this is the last thing you want when working with a bride – they want to feel confident that the style you make for them is going to last throughout the day and night, so having it all slip out at the trial is never a great start!

 

There are a few bridal hairstylist hacks that you can use to avoid this happening and keep those pins steadfast: First of all, you need to make sure you’re using the correct technique when fixing them in – just simply pushing the pins into the style won’t cut it, especially if the hair is quite heavy. Instead, you must use the up and over technique. Not sure what this is? Join us on one of our 2 day4 day or online courses and Pam will show you!

 

If you’ve got the technique down but your pins are still sliding out, a dusting of dry shampoo can work wonders. This product isn’t just for mattifying the hair, it’s also fantastic for creating a bit of extra grip.

 

You will also have an easier job of hairstyling in general if you ask your bride to wash her hair the night before, rather than on the day you’re due to meet. Avoiding conditioner for that last wash can really help as well, as very silky, soft hair is tough to work with.

It’s official! Our LIVE bridal hair webinars with Pam Wrigley have now started, with our first one just gone and lots more to come.

 

You may have heard it through the grape vine already, but it is true that our online webinars, available exclusively to our online students, are absolutely FREE!

 

Join Pam on our live sessions and watch her create amazing bridal hairstyles, ask her your hairstyling questions there and then and even send in your requests for future webinars, if there are any styles you’d love to learn or techniques you feel you need help with.

Bridal Hair Webinars

Bridal Hair Webinars

We know that many of you choose to train with us online because you’re unable to attend one of our face to face courses, and we know that sometimes the idea of training in anything at home can bit a bit daunting if you feel like you’re going it alone. Because of this, we aim to make our online course as interactive as possible and have lots of ways in which you can get to know your teacher, Pam Wrigley.

 

Our live bridal hair webinars are informal, friendly and available to all of our online students – all you have to do is book. Taking part in these webinars is a fantastic way to further your bridal hairstyling education and even gives you the opportunity to see styles you want to learn (if they’re not already available online!) and ask any questions that you’ve been stuck on. It’s also really helpful to listen and learn from other student’s questions, just as you would in any group class.
