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.

BRIDAL HAIRSTYLE TUTORIALS: THE CLASSICS

Some bridal hairstyles never seem to go out of fashion. That’s where our bridal hair style tutorials covering the classics come in.

In fact, you may be asked to re-produce versions of the classic bridal hair styles many times over.

However, each time you re-create a classic bridal hairstyle for a wedding, the hair styles will be slightly different. Depending on your client, whether that’s the bride, bridesmaids or the mother of the bride.

As a bridal hairstylist you will need to know how to work with a wide range of hair types and hair lengths.

You’ll also need to learn how to adapt each hair style to suit not only your client’s hair type but also their face shape.

Some bridal hairstyles require classic hair prep, ie heated rollers, and with others you may need to tong the hair, especially if you are looking to create classic Hollywood waves.

Our online bridal hair tutorials will help you prepare for the job at hand.

Bridal Hair & Makeup Inspiration for Autumn Weddings

When getting into the bridal hair and makeup industry, many people assume that summer is the busiest time of year but in fact, it’s the autumn months that are often the most popular with couples and wedding planners – so don’t start winding down just yet!

Autumn is such a magical time of year to get married (and one of the most expensive times of year too!) and there is so much scope to play around with slightly ‘warmer’ bridal hair and makeup looks. Summer always sees a lot of barely there, natural makeup and tousled locks and winter is a popular time for heavier makeup and more structured styles, but autumn offers that wonderful in-between ground which gives the best of both worlds. The sun is still shining, but the weather is getting colder and hair and makeup often reflects this.

In today’s blog, we’ll be exploring some of autumns hottest looks for brides – from the most sought after colour palettes to tapping into autumnal themes.

Why not practice some of the styles we suggest, in preparation for your brides? If you need a helping hand, join our online bridal hair course for expert advice and guidance at the click of a button!

Colour Palettes

Autumn comes with one of nature’s most vibrant colour palettes and an autumn bride might want to include this in her makeup look. Warm, bronzed contours; deep, rich red and berry lips all complete with a flawless base, of course! But as a bridal hair and makeup artist, it’s part of our job to stay on top of all the latest fashions, not just the obvious, and that includes colour schemes.

Pantone is the authority on colour for pretty much everything! Clothes, interiors and of course, makeup. The must-have colours for 2019 have already begun to surface, with collections titled ‘Cravings’ and ‘Classico’ providing a fantastic palette for autumn with lots of tempting reds and timeless neutrals. Stay ahead of the curve with your autumn brides and get playing with these gorgeous shades…

Red Pear

Red pear is an essential colour for autumn. A rich burgundy described by the experts as a ‘Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices’. It’s a bold one, yes, but on the right bride this can make the most incredible lip colour. For those feeling a little less brave, keep the essence of the shade but dial it back a bit by keeping it sheer.

Cayenne

Cayenne is one of the most wearable colours of the season, particularly as a ‘pop’ on the apples of your bride’s cheeks for an instant health kick! The coral undertones and soft pink overtones combine to make the most, dreamy shade for most skin tones. Beautiful!

White Swan

You can probably tell from the name that this is a stunning colour for a bridal look and it’s one that is soon going to take centre stage, with many a wedding dress appearing in this warm off-white shade in 2019. Layer it up with gorgeous autumn floral tones for elegant femininity.

Chilli Pepper

A vibrant, spicy red that is possible the perfect red lip shade. This is bold but super flattering, with a luscious pink undertone. If your bride is after a striking Hollywood style  with a contemporary twist, this is the hue for you!

Caviar

Cat eye flicks are always a wonderful addition to a bridal look, particularly one which nods towards vintage fashion, but black can be a little harsh for day wear and often, brown just doesn’t cut it. Enter caviar – the perfect mid black with just a hint of teal. This will really make blue eyes sparkle.

Apricot Brandy

Contouring plays a key role in autumn bridal makeup, but less is more and colours can be more flesh toned than brown. Pantone’s Apricot Brandy shade is a wonderful choice for sculpting cheekbones on fairer skin or giving a fresh apple on darker skin tones. A multi-tasker for your kit.

Bridal Makeup

Autumn wedding makeup for brides paves way for neutral smoky eyes, lightly bronzed contours, deeply coloured lips and a hint of gold – all of which have that amazing combination of sultry and girlish. Playing ‘seasonally’ with makeup is so much fun and is a great way to spark your creativity!

Lips

Summer brides often opt for natural lip shades or stick to that wonderful nude pink tone that Meghan Markle wore so well on her big day, but colder months always bring those darker shades to the forefront, which us makeup artists love!

A slightly sheer plum is a favourite right now, for A/W 2018, but all those reds on the Pantone colour chart for 2019 means that timeless Hollywood red pout is seriously on the radar. If your client has the right complexion for it (usually red heads and warm brunettes), why not play around with some orange undertones too?

Eyes

2018 has been a year for the new lighter smoky eye, featuring greys instead of neutrals but both are big for autumn and heading into 2019. Eye makeup always depends largely on the rest of the face though, particularly the lip. If you’re making the most of those bold, red shades then you could always try out a more delicate eye – a subtle gloss on the lid, a precise cat eye flick and sky-high lashes (with a bit of help from false individuals set in!).

Cheeks

Whatever the weather, a healthy glow is a must! But this doesn’t mean you have to go without that autumnal contouring. Pale skin can look fabulous kept really clear with a pink flush, just like on a brisk winter’s day but we also love a bit of bronze in cooler months, especially on warm skin tones – but easy does it! We still want this looking quite natural, not overdone.

Brows

Eyebrows should never be forgotten. These are the frame of the face and when they’re not done, the whole look is incomplete. Autumn brides are looking amazing with a strong brow, but it’s important to remember that eyebrows are such a personal thing, so go with what your bride loves. Whatever look you decide on though, well-groomed and defined is essential!Embed from Getty Imageshttps://embed.gettyimages.com/embed?assets=464349052,464349194&et=Xp4YA_ORTsFLeMHcg03B_w&tld=co.uk&sig=-oprm4R7NAfDyiB03QyPW3R_MyBASfLtve8ZXl9jDyY=&caption=true&ver=2

Autumnal Bridal Hair

A bride’s hairstyle comes down to so many things, so going purely by the seasons is not something you can really do, but you can certainly be inspired by what seems to be more popular with autumn brides.

Still relaxed, but with a little more refinement than your typical summer styles. This beautiful style worn by Hailey Baldwin is a great place to start!

Hailey Baldwin Hair How-to

This is a fabulous textured low bun hair style, so first thing’s first: get some texture into the hair with mouse and salt sprayNext, curl – using your tongs or straighteners – using just a little bit of Silhouette prep and prime or Osis soft glam prep prime spray. Spritz each section lightly just before you get any heat on the hair for a lovely shine.Once everything is prepped, loosen the curls softly with your fingers before picking up sections from the front. Using the twist and pull technique, bring each section back and secure using a strong hold bobby pin. These are Pam’s favourites – they don’t move anywhere! You can get them from Salon services.Keep bringing hair back and twisting and securing until you are happy with how it looks at the front then finally, pick up all the hair at the back, create a quick easy braid with all the hair, loosen, twist and secure into a fabulous low bun – e voila!

Trouble Shooting

Avoid flyaways by gently spritzing the hair with the prep and prime spay as you go along  BUT avoid ‘wetting’ the hair – just light mists of product are enough. Try to not be too close to the hair when you spray or you will make the hair wet. . . and wet = hard, crispy hair – not nice!

Bridal Hair, Tears & Time on our hands

I won’t lie, I shed a tear with bride Elise yesterday . . . my final wedding hair and makeup for I’m not sure how long.

Elise and Andy got married in church in Dorking, with a much reduced guest list, down from 300 to just 5.

But, it was an amazing day, everything was stripped right back, the original wedding had been planned for next weekend, 28 March, but with things moving so quickly with the corona virus, Elise re-planned her wedding in 2 days!

The reception was held at her mums house, for just 5 people and facebook live for the other wedding guests.

It didn’t matter that everything, including their wedding rings had the wrong date engraved on them!

However, even with out all the pomp and ceremony of a big wedding, Elise made sure I was free before she confirmed the new date.

Even if your brides cut back on lots of things bridal – they will still want to look gorgeous on their big day, with amazing wedding hair and makeup.

So keeping on top of your game and perfecting your bridal hair styling skills are more important than ever.
