Our 2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course is almost always SOLD OUT well in advance, but if you’re ready to train with us in London ASAP, you’re in luck – we have had a couple of unexpected cancellations on our upcoming course on the 26th & 27th July, due to unforeseen circumstances, so we have some LAST MINUTE spaces available.

Want to know a bit more about our 2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course before you go ahead and secure your place? Here’s how we do things on our 5* rated, critically acclaimed short course:


Learn to create beautiful bridal hairstyles in just 2 intensive days, with live model demos by Pam Wrigley and loads of hands on practice time for you with top quality training heads and a chance to practice your new braiding skills on our models.

The idea behind our course is not that you come away knowing how to create a few set styles, but that you will learn the techniques to be able to create ANY bridal hairstyle!


What is the 2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course Timetable?

2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course

The day starts at 9:30am in our fabulous, bright and airy studio in West London. There is huge amounts of space for you to work in (and only ever a maximum of 10 students on the course) with tons of natural light pouring in through the wall to wall windows. All the equipment for the 2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course is provided, so everything you need will be ready and waiting for you to get started when you arrive.

After a quick introduction with Pam and her assistant, both who will be there to help you whenever you need assistance during the course, you will begin your training! Pam will demonstrate how she likes to set rollers for the best kind of curls, and then you will get to work.

Once all the basics are covered (which even pro hairstylists find very helpful!) you will be ready to start styling. You will create your first bridal hairstyle before lunch and continue working on a variety of different techniques and styles for short hair all day!

2 day bridal hairstyling course

You’ll be starting at 9:30am again on the second day, but this time (now you’ve got all the intro and basics down) you’ll be ready to start styling right away! Pam will recap anything you feel the need to go over again from the day before and teach you some new techniques too, including how to create different types of curls with an alternative twist of the roller, vintage hairstyling techniques and even some gorgeous braids that you can incorporate in your work.

Today, you’ll be working on long hair with live model demos by Pam again and loads of hands on practice.

When the day is coming to an end, Pam will go over all of her best advice and tips on how to advertise and boost your business.

2 Day Bridal Hairstyling Course

Online Bridal Hair Course – Student of the Month!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1487360171829{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]

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…

[/dt_call_to_action][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17500″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452118412394{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

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!

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”17496″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452118657812{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

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!

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17497″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452118844775{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

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.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”17498″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452119066461{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

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.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17495″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452119315729{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

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!

CBH 4 Day Courses – Find Out More & Book Today!

For those of you signing up for our bridal & red carpet hair courses, it can be tough to choose between our 2 and 4 day courses! Our 4 day courses, complete with a professional photoshoot on the final day, are becoming increasingly popular with our students and as such, we thought that you might like to know a bit more about why that is…

4 day hair course
“I can honestly say I really really enjoyed every moment of the 4 day course and I feel I have learnt so much. I would highly recommend to anyone! If anyone is in 2 minds about doing this course I can honestly tell you it was amazing and I would 100% do it again!!” Emma – 5* Hotcourses review

As with all of our courses, the 4 day course is suitable for ALL experience levels: from absolute beginner to a trained professional – there is something for everyone.

The way that we are able to work in this way is that our 4 day course only ever has a maximum of 6 students at a time, meaning that everyone can get as much or as little help as they need from Pam and her trusty assistants. Unlike our 2 day courses, on which Pam trains using a mix of live model demonstrations and hands on practice for the students using the highest quality training heads (and a live model for braiding practice!), students attending our 4 day course will get the chance to work on live models of their own.

Over the 4 days, you will work with models who have short, medium and long hair so that you get a chance to play with a variety of styles. Whilst of course, there are set styles that Pam will demonstrate on our 2 and 4 day courses (with step by step instructions), you will have the freedom to play around with these and make them your own.

It is important that you know the idea behind Pam’s teaching method is not that you come away having learned how to create a set number of styles, but that you learn the prepping, securing and finishing techniques to equip you with the knowledge to be able to create any style.

Our courses are designed to train people to feel happy and confident to produce all styles once they leave. As with all of our courses, if there are any particular styles that you would like to cover, you are more than welcome to bring in some images and Pam will teach you how to do that as well.

How does the course pan out?

Day One
Using Heated Rollers
Working with Short Hair
Soft and relaxed Grecian Styles
Low buns (no donut)
Finger Waves
Day Two
Short and Sleek styles – Audrey Hepburn
Over shoulder style ideas

Try the trend: Floating eyeliner – Learn How To Create Beautiful Makeup Looks

This trend first surfaced back in 2012 when we saw it on the runways of Erdem and Mary Katrantzou. It is back again this summer with thanks to Giambattista Valli who has his models make their way down the runway sporting the unique makeup look. Celebs have been keen to get in on the act with Pixie Lott uploading a shot of herself to her Instagram account rocking a thick black line above the crease of her eyelid.


Try the trend

Step one:

This look requires flawless make up with a good base than matches your natural skin tone. Use foundation or tinted moisturiser to give a porcelain look. You can fill in your brows if necessary to make them nice and even. The aim is to have your eyes as the focal point of the face.

Step two:

Now you can draw your line. You will find it easier to do this if you tilt your chin up and look downwards into your mirror. Doing this will help you to see your eye lids properly.

Step three:

Take hold of your eye pencil if you are after a bold look and trace a line once or twice across the centre of each eye lid. Make sure that you follow the shape of the crease while doing this. Try to keep the line as thin as possible; too wide a line will look like you have made a mistake. If you are after a more subtle approach then you can use a powder and blend it slightly with an eye shadow brush, this will give a more smokey effect.

Step four:

Sweep mascara over your lashes, giving one to two coats.

Step five:

Keep lips looking chic with either a nude or pale pink lipstick for a healthy glow.

ASK PAM – Student Q & A with Pam Wrigley – Perfect Backcombing and Roller Setting

When you’re a member of our online course or if you have attended one of our 2 or 4 day courses, we like to make sure that you get all the support you need to keep creating beautiful styles.

One of our students sent us in a couple of photos recently, wanting feedback on her backcombing and roller setting, so we thought we would share Pam’s top tips with you so you can benefit from her expert, professional advice too! Enjoy :)  xxx

Images sent by one of our online students:

Pam’s Advice:

Hi Louise,

Thanks for sending your photos in of your work so far: first of all, well done!!

Your roller set is nice and neat with the correct placement of the rollers – just one thing to be careful of – try to make sure you keep the section lines between the rollers – i.e. the partings at the sides and above and below each roller nice and clean and straight – I know it is not easy to achieve this especially on the practice heads but, if you take your time when creating each roller section you will find it will make your job much easier when it come to styling the hair later on – so it is worth persevering.

Your back-combing  is fabulous!

This backcombing would be great when  your working with medium/long hair or when you are creating a French pleat -but when you’re working with short hair try this tip:

 When you backcomb concentrate more on the root of the hair with the comb and hold tighter onto the ends of the hair. You may have to go back over the backcombing at the root a couple of times and just work your way up perhaps 2-3inches of the length of the hair, keeping hold of the ends of the hair at all times. The result: you will get a good amount of backcombing at the root without compromising the length of the hair, so the hair still looks thick at the ends!

If you look again at the photos you sent me, the ends of the hair look thin and straggly; this is fine if you are creating something like a French pleat, but if you want to create a tumbling relaxed up do e.g. the Grecian up do on short hair – you need to be able to keep as much of the length of the hair as possible, whilst still back combing,  so you give the impression that she has lots of hair.

Hope this is helpful! I will be doing a tutorial on this in the near future but let me know in the mean time of you need more help with this and I will try and do a short video on my ipad for you : -)

Keep up the good work !!

All the best,
