HAIR ANALYSIS for Afro Hair, CURL TYPE & POROSITY

The curl type of Afro hair is determined by the shape of the follicle that hair grows out of from the scalp. The curl pattern is also identified by the shape that the strands of hair make, whether they kink, curve, or wind into spirals.

Most people with curly textured hair have more than one type of pattern on their head. They can also have several different textures, which all have to somehow look cohesive when you style it.

Hair Porosity – working wth Afro hair

The porosity of hair dictates how quickly the hair can absorb and hold on to moisture, it can be low, normal, or high.

Natural hair can prone to breakage during brushing and detangling.

Join our online course today and learn all about Afro hair. So you’ll be able to gain the confidence to work with this beautiful, versatile hair type.

CURLS FOR FABULOUS BRIDAL STYLES

Tongs & Wands

As a bridal hairstylist you’ll be called upon to create every type of curl, including soft & natural curls, corkscrew curls, beachy waves and Hollywood Waves.

As a result, curling tongs are an essential part of your bridal hairstyling kit. Whether you’re working with either poker straight hair or natural curls, fine, thin hair or long, thick, heavy hair.

So curling tongs will be the first thing to add to your hairstyling kit list.

I find the tongs I use most when I’m creating my beautiful bridal hairstyles are my Babyliss 25mm curling tongs. By the way – you will need tongs with a clamp :)

Straighteners / Straightening Irons

Create beautiful, loose curls quickly and easily with straighteners. Ideal for finishing a half up half down bridal hair-do or a quick fix for last minute hairstyle for the flower girls!

Personally I love using my Babyliss hair straighteners, as they are both good quality and they leave hair with a lovely, smooth finish without snagging. And what’s more, they won’t break the bank!

We have a great ‘quick straightener curl’ tutorial on our online bridal hair style course, which takes you step by step though how to prep the hair before going on to create beautiful curls.

Whether you’re working with long or short hair, fine or thick straight or naturally curly, a pair of straighteners are a must have for your bridal hairstyling kit.

BRIDAL & HAIR-UP STYLING

Bridal hairstyling practice head

Practice Makes Perfect. . . To get the best out of your bridal hairstyle training course It is worth spending money on a good quality practice head and you need 100% human hair.

We recommend a medium or high density practice head, with hair no shorter than 12-14 inches for your bridal hairstyling kit.

We want to help you get the right bridal hairstyling kit, so we’ve searched around for great quality practice heads for your bridal hairstyle/hair-up practice.

If I had to choose my favourite bridal hair practice head from our selection of manikin heads in our bridal hairstyle shop, it would be this one

I love it because the hair has different tones in it, and as a result, your hairstyles look fab in photos. It also has plenty of hair – and it has shoulders – so it looks a bit more realistic!

Having said that, the practice heads on this site will blow your mind!!!

The have some truly beautiful practice heads,`so you’re going to be spoilt for choice!

Bridal Hair Styling Prep

Heated rollers

Heated rollers come into their own when you create classic bridal hairstyles, because they smooth out the cuticle on the hair so you get a gorgeous glossy result.

They are also great for gorgeous volume and natural looking, bouncy curls

Heated rollers will make bridal hairstyling easy, especially when you’re just starting out! If you’re not quite sure how to put them in, don’t worry! We have a full length roller setting tutorial showing you just that.

Use them on their own, or alongside your tongs and straighteners as part of your bridal hairstyling kit, for a perfect result every time.

Blow Drying Perfection

Hair dryer

Blow drys are super popular at the moment, but you won’t necessarily need a hairdryer on day one, especially if you are just working on your practice head.

However, once you start working with clients you will definitely need one for your kit.

We love our Parlux hairdryers, our favourite brand of blow dry brushes are Head Hugger – they are just right for the job at hand.

Don’t for get you can learn how to create the perfect curly blow dry with our fabulous tutorials, which are available on our online bridal hair course.

Bridal Hair Organisation

Fishing tackle box for grip storage

This may seem like an odd one, but staying well organised will make your life as a pro bridal hairstylist so much easier!

Try the Fox Range Stack N Store 16 Compartment Box

The best one I’ve found is the large / shallow size available at numerous fishing tackle suppliers online – you can find them here: www.harrissportsmail.com

Hair grips/Bobby pin Sizes

  • 3 cm, 4.5 cm and 6 cm

Hair pins:

  • Strong – approx. 4-4.5 cm and 6-6.5 cm
  • Fine – approx. 4-4.5 cm

Suppliers of hair pins & grips

You can get them in our SHOP and also from Inca uk & Banbury Postiche (always buy hair pins with tips on the end so they don’t scrape along your clients scalp!)

Wedding Hair Styling Products

Prep, Prime & Setting Lotions – Schwarzkopf Silhouette style & care lotion and Schwarzkopf Silhouette setting lotion/Pump Spray

Salt Sprays

L’Oreal Texture spray and Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray

Curl creams 

We love  L’Oreal Liss Control and Boots Essentials Curl Cream – great for smoothing out slightly more stubborn curls!

Goldwell Style Superego Cream you need this in your kit – fabulous for beautiful textured styles

Texturising Powder – Great for adding texture, volume and body to the hair. Dust It by Schwarzkopf and Big Sexy Hair Powder Play are a couple of the best one I’ve found. 

Hair spray – You’ll need a hair spray that brushes out easily – it should be flexible on the hair so you can try different looks easily. We recommend Elnett Professional Hair Spray – regular hold – available at most beauty wholesalers. Also try Osis Session 3 – a great dry hair spray that is super strong but not heavy. It is good as a finishing spray.

Avoid regular Elnett available at most chemists and supermarkets as it can be quite wet and has a tendency to make the hair crispy.

Mousse – a medium or firm hold mouse will do the trick.

Real Life… 

Pam recently had the pleasure of training a fantastic group in their lovely salon and the students had a real range of experience – from just 6 months in the biz, to 30 years! But this wasn’t a problem at all.

Everyone was catered for, with some of the team focusing on updating and honing in on their skills and others, straight out of college, learning everything from scratch.

An immensely fun day was had by all, creating textured styles, beachy waves, beautiful braids, perfecting backcombing, half up styles, high buns and low buns and mermaid styles as well as learning how to use padding and extensions and how to secure the hair properly with bobby pins and hair pins.

 

All this in 1 day! It is possible & you will LOVE it!

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.

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.

One of our online students, Natalie, has just started off on her bridal hair journey; recently completing her hair prep exam using tongs, straighteners and heated rollers.

As someone with no hairstyling experience before undertaking our online bridal hair course, Natalie demonstrates just how much you can learn in a short space of time…

Here are just some of the ‘basics’ available for you to learn, when you join our Online Bridal Hair Course

Getting Started…

 

How to Prep 

Just like on our face-to-face courses, we’ve made sure to include plenty of full length tutorials that take you through everything you need to know when it comes to hair prep.

A style is only as good as it’s foundation, as far as we’re concerned, so it’s important to use excellent techniques from the get-go, not just when you get to ‘the main event’. No matter what your experience level, you’ll find our tutorials easy to follow and infinitely useful.

Even if you’re already a pro-hairstylist it’s a good idea to ‘go back to basics’ with our online bridal hair course because you’re bound to learn something new, thanks to Pam’s 25 years experience in the wedding industry.

Backcombing

Knowing how to backcomb correctly is an essential part of bridal hairstyling, as this will not only enable you to create fantastic volume and padding within styles without the need for donuts or hair extensions, but it will also help you to secure your grips in such a way that they just won’t budge!

Pam will take you through how to backcomb the hair in a simple, safe and effective way that won’t hurt your client’s scalp(!) and will give you exactly the effect you desire.

 

Smooth & Secure

It’s no good creating a gorgeous style that doesn’t last, so learning steadfast securing techniques is a must.

From Pam’s signature Create Beautiful Hair ‘up & over’ method to the ‘shake test’, our online bridal hair course will help you create bridal hairstyles that will look as great last thing at night as it does walking down the aisle.

Sign up to our Online Bridal Hair Course for ‘Quick Tips’ on the go!

“Thanks for all the help! I’ve been hairdressing for 25 years plus but I’ve always been terrified of Bridal Hair.

I started your online bridal hair course and just a few weeks in I’ve managed to do the hair for my daughters wedding! I’d never have been brave enough without this course. Thanks Again.” – Michelle Jones, CBH Online Student

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!
