your new career as a Bridal hair stylist & bringing up a family

Working as a bridal hairstylist also allowed me to work around my children whilst they were small. Because I was able to work just a couple of hours at the weekend and be at home during the week.

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

bridal hairstyling kit bits & bobs

Snag free elastic bands eg HQ Hair & Claire’s

5 New Years Resolution to Boost Your Career as a Bridal Hair Stylist

Just because we’re in February now doesn’t mean that we’re going to let you off no sticking to your new year’s resolutions! We’re good like that.

Here at Create Beautiful Hair, we’re not so keen on the old half-hearted diets and expensive gym memberships that never get used, for us, it’s all about what we can do to grow our business and continue to thrive as a Bridal Hair Stylist.

Knowing what to do to help your career progress can be a tricky one. You might be just starting out or perhaps you feel as though you’re ready to expand into bigger and better things. Whatever stage you’re at, it’s always good to be thinking ahead, from knowing all the hottest trends to picking up more and more work, so we’re going to let you in on all of our best industry secrets to keep your business booming – even during the quiet, winter months…

bridal hair stylist

Get Online

First thing’s first: if you’re not online, get online.

By that, we mean a website, a Facebook business page, a business Instagram account…the lot! If you’re not accessible on the world wide web, not only are you going to be impossible to discover but clients already considering you will lose faith that you’re their best choice.

Having a really sharp, professional looking website with all the necessary info on helps to build trust and reliability before a bride even makes first contact. If you don’t have a website, or at the very least a business page on Facebook with lots of great reviews, then a bride is going to start wondering if you’re experience enough or even ‘legit’.

bridal hair stylist

Get gorgeous photos up in an easy-to-navigate online portfolio, list your prices, make sure that your contact details are clear and simple to find and provide some information about yourself too – your brides-to-be want to get a feel of their bridal hair stylist and know that they are qualified, friendly and confident.

 

TOP TIP:

Online reviews are crucially important these days, so if you haven’t got any of those yet it’s time to get to work getting some out there! Create some stunning styles for family and friends and ask them to leave reviews on your Facebook page and on Google+ reviews too.

Don’t be shy about getting in touch with old clients either to ask them to put one up as well. Send an email with the links they need to take them right to the review page to make the process easy as pie.

Invest in Yourself

Anyone who works hard and sticks at their passion WILL get a ‘big break’ at some point, but it can take a little while to get there. The most important thing you can do as you make your journey as a Bridal Hair Stylist is to invest in yourself and be learning, continually.

Always be practicing, always be discovering new styles and techniques. Our Online Bridal Hair Course is a fantastic way to keep your head in the game even when things are a bit quiet. You can spend your free time brushing up on everything from correct kit care to the perfect blow-dry. Never rest on your laurels – if you want this, you’ve got to put the time in.

Always Be Learning

Online Bridal Hair Course

Go to Events

Hiding yourself away and hoping that the work will just come to you is not great business practice. If you want to be a successful Bridal Hair Stylist you’ve got to put yourself out there, get known and if you get the opportunity, show off your skills!

Wedding fairs can be an excellent place to source new clients, so start researching upcoming events and aim to get booked into at least one. Attending the big hair events such as Pro Hair Live and the Bridal Exhibition is invaluable too – pop along, take in some seminars and catwalks and mingle. Make those contacts!

bridal hair stylist
bridal hair stylist

Be Pro-active

Even if you’re struggling to get paid work, don’t be down about it, just use that time to assist wherever possible (this often will lead to paid work!) and stay focused when you do. There’s no point going along to work but not paying enough attention to learn anything: watch how to lead stylist does things, stay on top of what products and tools he or she might need next and be brave enough to jump in if they ask you to.

As a Bridal Hair Stylist in such a competitive industry, it’s up to you to think outside the box to get more work. Get in touch with PR companies, magazines, other hair stylists or makeup artists and event teams and ask if they are looking for a hair stylist. You never know – you might make a career-changing call at exactly the right time!

How to Win at Instagram for a Serious Bridal Hair Business Boost!

black friday

Most of you will probably have an Instagram account for personal use, but if you’re not signed up and making the most of this fantastic social media platform for your Bridal Hair Business, then you’re missing a great opportunity.

 

Instagram has recently made it so that you can set your account up as a business account and receive access to insights about your posts, making tailoring your uploads to get the best audience response possible even easier!

online bridal hair course

As a career that has the potential to offer you some really gorgeous images, Instagram is one of the best marketing options for Bridal Hair & Makeup Artists all over the world and with an estimated 500 million users, this is a free advertising opportunity you can’t afford to miss out on! But as with all social media, it’s not as simple as setting up your account, uploading gorgeous photos and waiting for those likes and followers to roll in: if you want to grow your business, you’ve got to learn how to work your Instagram feed for the win.

 

Find out how to take the photos you need for a successful Instagram account on on blog ‘How to Take Amazing Photos for your Social Media’

 

Ready to transform your Instagram feed into a new avenue for success? Here’s how to win at Instagram for a serious Bridal Hair business boost…

Know Your Goals

 

When launching an Instagram feed for your business, you need to treat it as the marketing tool it is and work out some kind of plan to stick to that will help to reach your goals, but before that, you need to know what your goals are!

Do you plan on using Instagram to showcase your work to your customers and potentially generate new leads? Do you want your feed to be a ‘behind the scenes’ access point or more of a portfolio? Or is your main goal just to get the followers in and decide what to do next once you’ve got a small audience set up?

Once you’ve figured out what you would like to achieve from setting up a business Instagram, you can then start making plans for more specific goals, such as how many followers or likes you aim to get in a month or how many photos or videos you would like to try and upload. Having structured goals will help you achieve what you’re setting out to do, in the long run.

Instagram

Use Business Insights

 

As of 2016, Instagram introduced their new business platform with built-in insights for users to work with to really get the most out of their posts. Business accounts are not so much about what you want to post, but more about what your audience wants to see and these insights can help you figure out what that is.

Start off by trialling different types of posts to see what sort of response they get: videos, motivational posts, behind the scenes, portfolio shots, pics of your clients and maybe even a competition! This is a great way to quickly figure out what your audience enjoys, particularly when teamed up with trending hashtags.

You can take insights one step further and download a separate tool, such as Iconosquare, to monitor all of your posts closely, including success of hashtags and overall growth.

 

Top Tip: If you want to make sure that all of your posts are as good as they can be, write yourself up a ‘content calendar’ so that nothing is left to spur of the moment, rush entries.

Instagram

Optimise Your Profile

 

As a business feed, your Instagram needs to essentially be used as a shop window. No mess is allowed and everything needs to be clear, user-friendly and on brand.

Make sure that your username is recognisable and obviously representing what you have to offer, as this is going to be how people find you! Ensure that your profile is PUBLIC, not private; add your full business name into the ‘name’ section in settings and include a link to your website in your bio. It’s great to change this link up sometimes too, in line with a call to action in your posts. For example, if you’re asking people to read your latest blog, put the direct link to this in your bio.

When you post, you can optimise these too by adding your location, posting relatable content, using trending and relevant hashtags, only uploading beautiful images and asking your audience to do something ie. Comment or read your blog.

 

Need a website to link to or help with a blog to help promote your business? Visit www.seotrotblogs.com and contact Ruby quoting ‘Create Beautiful Hair’ for special student discounts on her services!

Instagram

Always Use Hashtags

 

Hashtags are a must for getting your pics out there, but they have to be relevant to your post or you may end up losing followers rather than gaining them!

Take a look at some of the top Bridal Hair & Makeup Artist feeds and see which hashtags they are using. Do this regularly, as these are constantly changing.

You could even start up your own brand hashtag and try gaining some popularity by encouraging others to use it too. If you do this, it has to be unique to you and your brand so that you don’t end up overlapping with the competition!

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!
