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.

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 :)

Tongs 19mm & 25mm

Wand 25-13mm

BRIDAL HAIR STYLIST ESSENTIALS

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.

What’s more, you’ll learn how to blow dry short, long & medium length hair, curly to straight. . .and straight to curly.

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

Selection of Hair grips/Bobby Pins & Hair Pins

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

The essentials

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 Hair Kit Extras

Snag free elastic bands eg HQ Hair & Claire’s

A classroom environment is great for learning and naturally, we always love to meet our students face to face but because we feel so passionately about taking the time to get to know everyone who trains with Create Beautiful Hair and providing the individual care and attention required to produce really exceptional bridal hairstylists, we have implemented many ways for our Online Bridal Hair Course to be just as effective, just as personal and just as confidence-boosting as our 2 day and 4 day courses.

We know that there are many would-be bridal hairstylists out there with amazing potential who aren’t able to make it to LondonManchester or Birmingham to train with us. Whether you’re already working and wanting to take the life-changing steps towards becoming a professional bridal hairstylist, you’re a busy mum with sporadic pockets of time to spare or you’re in another country – whatever the reason you can’t make it along to one of our face to face courses, you need not worry.

 

You really can gain all the skills and accreditation you need to become the bridal hairstylist you’ve always dreamed of being from the comfort of your own home, whatever your experience level. And guess what? You’ll feel just as much a part of the team as everyone else.

Learn Everything You Need

 

With over 60 full-length HD tutorials covering essential hair prep, bridal hair styles, blow-drying and braiding; 100s of quick tips and all the expert bits and pieces you need to really wow your clients, you won’t be left short by choosing to take our Online Bridal Hair Course.

In fact, there is so much available for you to learn from that most of our face to face students choose to sign up online too, to continue practicing and progressing at home.

Take Your Time

Although we have designed a structured course for you to take, there is no set time limit for you to complete it in. You have the entire length of your membership to do the work provided and even then, if you haven’t quite had the time to get it done, you can always extend your membership at the end.

This means that you are able to work to your own schedule and at your own pace. Got an hour in the evening? Try out a new skill. Found yourself with a day free? Go at it all day! The time you spend training and how you choose to do it is entirely up to you. Our tutorials are there for you to view anytime, day or night.

Wedding Hairstylist Must-Haves: Tools & Products You NEED in Your Kit!

Wedding Hairstylist Must-Haves: Tools & Products You NEED in Your Kit!

wedding hairstylist can only do so much without an amazing kit to help create those gorgeous styles, but with so many choices of products and tools out there it can be hard to know where to begin. Messing up on buying those all-important essentials can be a costly and time-consuming error, so aside from your pins, grips, tail comb and padding, we thought that we’d share a few of Pam’s absolute must-have items to set you on the right track.

Wedding Hairstylist Products

TIGI Catwalk Curlesque Curls Rock Amplifier

For curls that rock, look no further than this incredible product – a firm favourite of Pam’s for smooth, frizz-free curls with perfect definition that lasts.

 

Boots Essentials Curl Cream

Price isn’t always everything: This product has been around for ages and for a bargainous £1.99, you really can’t go wrong – so stock up! This curl crème is ideal for smoothing out curls that are a bit more stubborn than your average.

Dust It by Schwarzkopf

Dry shampoo isn’t just for bad hair days, it’s also brilliant for creating beautiful volume at the roots and great texture throughout. If you’re struggling to get a grip to stay put on extra silky hair, a quick dusting of this should sort you out. Although this is an awesome product, it’s not so brilliant on dark hair as it can show up in an ashy tone. Label.M Brunette Resurrection Style Dust is Pam’s go-to alternative for brunettes and raven haired beauties.

Elnett Professional Hair Spray

Note the ‘professional’ here – you are a wedding hairstylist after all! This is not your standard Elnett hairspray that you can pick up from chemists and supermarkets. Unlike the highstreet product, which has a tendency to be a bit too wet and crispy for flawless styling, this pro version is available at most beauty wholesalers. Go for regular for a natural looking hold.

Wedding Hairstylist Tools

Babyliss Pro Heated Rollers (x2!)

Pam always uses Babyliss Pro heated rollers on the Create Beautiful Hair Bridal Hair Courses to create the dream foundation for any style. They’re easy to use, quick to heat up and cool down and they will give every style the perfect volume and root lift from the get-go.

Buy two kits and always bring both with you – this way you’ll never not have enough rollers and you can be heating more up as you work. If you need extra, individual rollers, you can buy those too.

Diva Wands

Creating all sorts of different curls and waves is a cinch with your trusty tongs and wands, but which size should you get? Pam always recommends that her students invest in 19mm & 25mm tongs and 25mm-13mm wand. Diva wands are an excellent brand and as an added bonus, they all come with heat proof gloves which is an invaluable bit of kit for a wedding hairstylist.

GHDs or Coroliss Straightening Iron

Quick and easy ringlets for flower girls or the tool of choice for smooth and sleek styles, there’s a reason that GHDs are so popular – they really are fantastic! Coroliss is another, lesser known brand that makes superb straighteners and these are actually Pam’s number one choice and what she uses on her own brides.

 

Boar Bristle & Nylon Hair Brush

A regular, plastic brush won’t cut it if you want to keep your styles perfect and free from flyaways. Whether you go for a classic Mason Pearson or a budget (but almost as good!) version by Sonia Kashuk or Denman, make sure that it’s aa boar bristle and nylon mix, for the smoothing and detangling action in one.

Fishing Tackle Box

Not strictly a tool but definitely something worth a mention – where are you supposed to keep all of your black, brown and blonde pins and grips? In a fishing tackle box of course!

This is one of Pam’s top tips of the trade and how she keeps all of her bits and bobs really organised – a must when you’re keeping to a strict wedding timetable.

Party Season ‘How To’: Beautiful Looped Braids Boho Up-do

Party Season ‘How To’: Looped Braids Boho Updo

Party season is well and truly underway, so it’s time to get yourself well acquainted with some of the hottest looks out there for the coming months. Whether your clients are Halloween party goers; wanting to look their very best for Christmas or New Year or winter brides, having great hair is a must across the board, whatever the celebration.

To get you going with your party season styles, we’ve put together a step-by-step ‘how to’ guide for creating one of the most popular looks of the moment: Looped Braids Boho Updo!

Love this style and want to learn more? Sign up to our online course for 100s of full length video tutorials with bridal hair expert Pam Wrigley.

PARTY SEASON

Prep the hair and set in rollers for beautiful movement throughout the style and elegant root lift. Read all about the hair prepping techniques you can learn with us online, here.

Follow our step-by-step ‘How-To’ guide…

Step 1 / Part the hair in the centre and draw out a few pieces to frame the face for a soft look.

Step 2 / Gather a small section (about 2 inches) to the left of the parting and begin a regular Dutch braid.

Step 3 / Continue the braid but when you cross the right over the middle strand pick up a new, small section of hair along the and cross it into the braid.

Step 4 / Cross the left over the middle as usual and then again, bring the right strand across and bring in a new section of hair.

Step 5 / Repeat this two more times until you have four new pieces brought into your braid.

party season

Step 6 / ‘Seal’ this waterfall braid (which is what you’ve now created!) with a single ‘stich’ of your regular Dutch braid again.

Step 7 / Continue the braid, crossing the left over the middle and this time pick up a new section on the left side but underneath the braid rather than on top as before and bring it into the braid to create your first loop.

Step 8 / Repeat this process twice, bringing in a new section of hair to the left of the first looped piece, again the the second and then finally to the third.

Step 9 / Finish the braid out in a Dutch braid and then gently back-comb the end of the braid to hold it closed, or if you prefer, tie with a clear elastic.

Step 10 / Create an identical braid on the other side of the parting and then bring your finished braids around the head to the back, pull open a small gap in the end stitch and move the left braid through the right braid. Secure with grips using Pam’s ‘up and over technique for a style that won’t budge!

party season

Want bigger braids for this party season style? Now’s the time to loosen them out! Gently pull at the sections to open the braid up and make them more noticeable.

If you love this style as a half up, half down do – stop here. If you want to carry on and create an amazing updo…keep going!

Step 11 / Bring the loose hair that has been left down into a ponytail and tie with a clear elastic at the point where you would like to create your messy bun.

Step 12 / On the last loop of tying the ponytail, pull the hair halfway through to create a bun.

Step 13 / Take small sections from the top of the bun shape you have created, bring them up towards the head and secure into place with Kirby grips.

Step 14 / Finally, use the fanned ends of the hair that have been left out of the bun by tucking them into the hair band underneath each of the pinned sections.

How to Nail Your Bridal Hair & Makeup Trial Run Every Time

How to Nail Your Bridal Hair & Makeup Trial Run Every Time

Before you actually hit the ground running as a bridal hair & makeup artist, it would be easy to think that being successful and having a diary full of booked clients comes down entirely to your practical skill, but as with any career involving working with people, it’s the way that you treat your clients, communicate and go the extra mile that will make the difference between you and the next stylist.

Of course, skill is paramount and you need to be ready to create that dream style for your bride (which is why, on all of our Bridal Hair Courses, we’ll teach you the techniques to be able to produce ANY style!) but you’re never going to get to that point if you don’t take the steps to ensure that your trial run is a huge hit.

As a bridal hair & makeup artist, you only get one shot at proving that you are the one for the job above all others, so before you have your next trial run, make sure that you’re clued up on how to nail it, every time.

Prep the Bride

 

Communication is key when it comes to being an amazing bridal hair & makeup artist and this should start before you even meet your client…

 

From the first point of contact, it’s on you to not only make sure that your bride-to-be feels special and well taken care of, but that she also feels prepared for the upcoming trial run. It’s not just you who feels the pressure of getting this right – she’s eager to find that dream look too!

To effectively prep your bride, you need to fill her in on all the things she can do in advance to help her feel ready when you finally meet.

 

Laying some ground rules on how she should arrive with dry, product-free, un-styled hair preferably washed the night before will make your life a lot easier!

bridal hair

Ask your bride to have a think about what’s important to her – what she loves and wants to show off and what she’s not so keen on and wants to disguise or work around. Let her know that you don’t expect her to arrive knowing exactly what she wants (this is something you’ll figure out together) and not to stress if she’s totally clueless. She wants to know that she’s in good hands as well as being part of the process.

Talk & Listen

 

When the day of the trial finally arrives, you might be brimming with ideas that you would love to bring to life on your bride and that’s great! But don’t be pushy.

 

It’s a fine line between making expert suggestions and recommendations for looks that you think will look beautiful (which is usually welcomed!) and making a bride feel as though she doesn’t really have a say in the finished result.

 

Listen to her responses as you talk and as you work with both your ears and your eyes – often body language speaks much louder than words.

 

To be a great bridal hair & makeup artist, you need to be a great listener. Talk to your client about everything, not just her hair and makeup, as her overall plans for her big day should impact the style you discover together for her as much as anything else.

Be Prepared (With Pam in your Pocket!)

 

No bride wants a bridal hair & makeup artist who is unsure of themselves, so be confident by being well prepared.

 

Practice makes perfect, so work on your skills non-stop on the run up to your trials or attend one of our 2 Day Bridal Hair Courses to perfect your skills.

Our Online Bridal Hair Course is an invaluable tool for all bridal hair & makeup artists during a trial run, as you can watch our 100s of quick tip videos at any time and solve any number of issues in a instant. Keep your phone on you and if you find that you’re struggling to get a style to stay put, getting a curl to hold or any other problem you can nip to the loo and watch Pam take you through how to sort it, step by step, in just a minute or two!

Use Your Planner

 

You can now buy the bridal hair and makeup planners that Pam uses with her clients in our online shop!

 

As you’re working your way through the trial run, you absolutely must make notes so that when the wedding day comes around you can recreate the exact look that your client loved so much before, without having to try and remember which techniques or products you used off the top of your head. This will also help you to work out a timetable for the day so that you bride and the bridal party are all ready on time!

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.

Hair Extensions & Padding

On our online bridal hair course, Pam will introduce you to some of her favourite products and kit, including the best hair extensions and padding that she uses to create styles with her own brides.

You’ll discover how to utilise extensions and padding in the best way possible, maximising their potential for creating the most fabulous bridal hairstyles possible!
