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 and can 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 :)

Tongs 19mm & 25mm

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.

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, 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

bridal hairstyling kit bits & bobs

Snag free elastic bands eg HQ Hair & Claire’s

This month we were so impressed by one of our online bridal hair students, Chloe, that we just had to share some of her fabulous work with you!

We like to have something for everyone available on our online bridal hairstyling course, from classic bridal to relaxed and contemporary, with some gorgeous vintage looks and braids thrown in for good measure, but what we really love to see and always encourage is for our students to use the techniques shown to create their own, unique styles.

Chloe has certainly done just that, combining our expert securing techniques and some of the styles we teach with an edgy fashion twist using wiring.

We just love the creativity Chloe has shown in her work! Totally original.

Well done Chloe!

Wedding Hair Styles Made Easy!

As a bridal hair stylist, you will know that wedding season will be starting again soon, and if you’re new to it all this prospect can be a little daunting…but don’t panic!!

With top tips from award-winning bridal hair stylist Pam Wrigley, with over 25 years experience to share with you, your job is about to get a whole lot easier…

The Trial Run

Don’t be tempted to leave the trial run until the last minute! It is in both yours and the bride’s best interest to have the trial at least 2 or 3 months before the wedding day.

You will probably find that bookings with brides tend to be a bit quieter in the winter months (Jan – March and into April), so keep yourself busy during your down-time and not overloaded during summer by filling your winter weekends with these all important trial runs.

Working with ‘day old’ and unconditioned hair will be easiest for you, but the last thing you want is the hair to be greasy, so discuss this with your bride in advance.

Ideally, your client will have clean, dry hair, washed the night before, but if your client tells you that she likes to wash her hair every day then let her – just ask her to forgo any deep conditioning treatments or 2-in-1 shampoos, as this will leave the hair too sleek and therefore un-manageable.

Be Confident

It may seem like your clients want you to have all the answers, but you’re only human, and if you’re a little unsure about what styles to suggest to your bride . . .

Don’t be afraid to say you don’t know!

You might feel a bit ‘on the spot’ if she asks you what your going to do with her hair, but just be confident and let her know that you need to get your hands in her hair first and have a play around before you decide together what is right for her.

Pam explains “From my experience as a bridal hair stylist, I have found that you can force most hair types into practically any style, but you’ll find chances are if you have to force it, it won’t suit her and it won’t want to stay in! Take your time and get to know your client a little bit for best results”

Face Shapes

If you’ve found yourself trying to memorise which hair styles suited which face shape. . .

Pam’s advice is “don’t worry about it!”

Most people are actually a combination of face shapes and even if they aren’t, there are so many other things you need to take into consideration when it comes to choosing the right hair style: the dress, the venue, even the height of the groom!

Just relax and talk to your client. Try a few styles out when you do the trial run – you’ll find the one that works.

Get Your Bride’s Input

The best way to find out what a client wants is to ask!

Advise your bride to start looking for styles that she loves in preparation for her trial run and ask her to let you in on her wedding inspiration too.

Pinterest mood boards are fun to make and very useful for a bridal hair stylist to get an idea of the whole wedding theme. Get your bride to send you pictures, or invite you to share her Pinterest albums.

Once you have an idea of the sort of styles she likes, and doesn’t like, have a go on your practice head or a friend in preparation for the trial run.

You can watch our online tutorials for in-depth guidance and hairstyle inspiration, so you’ll be really confident when you have to do it for real.

Always ask lots of questions about her dress, the venue, the bridesmaids dresses, her flowers – not just about hair! Be sure to find out if there’s anything she doesn’t like too – does she have big forehead she wants to hide? Is she self conscious about her ears?

Be sure to keep an eye of your bride’s body language, as this will tell you how she’s really feeling! Ask lots of open ended questions and assume there is something she doesn’t like, to end up with a happy client.

Natural Curls & Waves

Pam says “Unless your client has really curly hair – like mine, or curlier – it is probably best to ask her not to straighten her hair before you arrive, as you will have to see the hair in its natural state so you know just what you need to do.”

If you want to add some height and oomph into the hair with heated rollers, you should start the styling process working with the natural shape and texture of the hair rather than going from poker straight and flat.

If you do find the hair needs straightening to get it glossy and shiny, you can always straighten it when you arrive and then re-curl with your tongs or straighteners before creating your fabulous hair style.

Work With A Mirror

Don’t try to second guess! Work with a mirror in front of your client and always involve her in the styling process.

To make sure you give your client the best hair she’s ever had, it is the job of a bridal hair stylist to listen to her input. Try asking these questions, and add some of your own:

Where does she like to part her hair? Would she be happy trying the parting in different positions? Would she like width at the sides of the hair or would she prefer it sleek and tight back? Does the hair above her ears look better going back and down or up and back? How does she like her fringe – forward and sweeping over, to one side, or back with height?

If you ask for her input she will feel more relaxed, and between you, you’ll get the perfect style!

Sleek or Tousled?

Your client might have a very particular idea of what style she wants in her head, but it’s still worth trying a few different looks on the trial run. She may be surprised at what she falls in love with!

If your bride can’t decide what style she would like to have on the big day, it is possible for her to have both. She can have her cake and eat it! After all – she’s the bride…

If your client asks for a smooth sleek backcombed style, you’ll still need to curl the hair, so try a quick soft relaxed style first so she can see what it looks like. A very popular this year is the “I woke up this gorgeous” effortless beauty look, but a lot goes into getting these styles just right and once you’ve created a smooth and sleek backcombed style, it’s practically impossible to get the soft curl back again if she decides she doesn’t like it.

Come along to one of our bridal hair courses or sign up to our online tutorials to get confident with all the different types of waves and curls: soft beachy wave, soft, relaxed corkscrew looking curls etc…

Braids are a must have too! Make sure you’re happy with at least 2 or 3 braiding techniques and practice incorporating them into your soft relaxed looking styles. Not sure on these? Join us for our 1 day braiding course!

Keep Detailed Notes

Once you’ve found the perfect style, you will need to keep a record of it so you can recreate it perfectly on the wedding day. Here’s how:

  1. Taking photos is great so you can see how the finished style looks, but you need to remember exactly how you achieved that look…
  2. You’ll need to remember all the little things that you did to tailor make this style to make it perfect, so take notes! Pam says “I find it invaluable to write the detail down – how did I curl the hair, did I use a reverse wind or reverse wind with a twist? Tongs, straighteners or heated rollers? What products did I use? Does she like her ears covered to not? How does she like her fringe, her parting the height on the crown? There are so may thing to remember!

It will make your job as a bridal hair stylist so much easier on the wedding day if you know exactly what you have to do to achieve the perfect style, so write everything down in our specially designed wedding hair and makeup planners.

We don’t mean to brag (OK, OK, we definitely DO mean to brag…), but our online hair course students are pretty awesome!

There’s over 1500 minutes of video tutorials to get through on our 6 and 12 month online hair course memberships, so every student course submission we get through is a little different. As with any creative venture, hairstyling is as unique to the individual hairstylist as a painting might be to an artist and we just love seeing everyone’s unique flare and what they choose to do with it.

Now that we’ve upgraded our online hairstyling course to include AQA UAS Certificate upon completion, our Create Beautiful Hair students are going off to do bigger and better things than ever before and it’s so exciting to see you flourish.

To kick 2016 off to a running start, we just had to share these amazing hairstyles created by one of our international online students, Vania…

This stunning up ‘do is an excellent example of how to incorporate an elegant rope twist into a classic bun for a more contemporary and unique feel. A perfect choice for a summer or destination bride who has opted for a Grecian style dress, to flatter beautiful bone structure and keep her cool on a hot wedding day!

The high ballerina bun is a must have style in any hairstylists repetoire, but sometimes without a few little extra touches, they can be quite severe. Here, Vania has chosen to give a little lift at the front to soften the edges, and the braid wrapped around the base of the bun gives that perfect final touch, without taking away from the main bulk!

This is a wonderful use of pin-curls and is a great style for brides with naturally thick, curly hair. Curly hair can be quite unruly and difficult to work with if you haven’t got your technique quite right, but here, Vania has used our online tutorials to the best of her and her model’s advantage! A fabulous style, full of volume and texture.

Creating a beautiful hairstyle is about so much more than putting the hair up correctly (although this is, of course, important too!) – it’s also about helping your client find a style that is perfect for them. Here, Vania has chosen a chic, vintage inspired style that helps bring out all of her model’s gorgeous features, and fits in just right with her makeup and look.

A glamourous half up half down do never fails to impress, particularly if your client is wanting to show off her hair length or wear extensions on her big day. Here, Vania has created a gorgeous, relaxed curl for a lovely, bouncy finish and has used Pam’s ‘up and over’ technique to secure the twist at the back firmly, without the need for tons of grips and discomfort!
