I offer a wide range of professional hair services. From bridal hair, hair extensions, keratin treatments to blow dry treatments.
I love being involved in one of the most special days of your life. I understand the importance of looking and feeling amazing. Along with your dress, your hair is one of the most important aspects of your wedding. Therefore my aim is to help you choose a style that emphasises your greatest features, that makes you feel beautiful and ultimately reflects you. Nothing is more breathtaking than a woman’s natural beauty so looking yourself is key.
Wedding Hair Trial
The wedding hair trial usually takes approximately 90 minutes, allowing me to help you decide on the perfect hair style for you on your wedding day. During this time we can discuss any ideas you may already have, or create something new and unique that will complement you on your day.
The wedding day is all about you! After your trial we will have a schedule in place to ensure your day runs smoothly, working alongside a make upartist if you wish to use one. If the bridal party is large and the time frame is small, an assistant can be arranged, so you and your party can relax and enjoy the precious moments before you walk down the aisle. Once all the hair is in place I will wait until you are dressed before adding any finishing touches.
With many years under my belt and training from the best in London, I understand the importance of having the perfect cut to suit you and your personality. Consultation is key and whether you know exactly what you want, or you need guidance in choosing a style that not only suits you but you can manage yourself at home, together we can choose the perfect look for you.
Cut and Blow Dry
I have been trained by stylists from John Frida, Daniel Galvin, and Nevilles so I fully understand hair. I will spend the time to discuss your lifestyle and learn about how; you wear your hair on a day to day basis, If you find it hard to manage your hair, and how often you wash your hair. I won’t do a haircut that looks great when styled by me, but after you wash your hair can’t recreate the look. My aim is to give you the perfect haircut you love and can manage yourself at home.
Blow Dry Services
A good blow dry can make you feel your best. Whether its for a special occasion or part of your weekly beauty regime, I can create the look for you. With a wide range of products and equipment at my finger tips, I can create anything from voluminous curls to sleek and shiny hair.
A keratin treatment is designed for someone with frizzy unruly hair. If your hair is resistant and you struggle with blow drying your hair smooth, this treatment is perfect for you. The treatment lasts approximately 3 months until it slowly washes out of your hair. It will reduce the amount of frizz you have and make blow drying your hair a pleasure and not a chore. It’s not a straightener so you can still achieve movement and body in your hair with ease.
Split End Treatment
A split end treatment is similar to the keratin treatment, although only applied to the ends of the hair or where the breakage is more prominent. The treatment lasts up to 3 months and helps protect and nourish your hair. It helps smooth your ends and frizzy bits, so there is less need for you to bring out the straightening irons so get the look your after. this will help rehabilitate your hair break the cycle of applying more heat to already distresses hair.
Science Behind The Keratin
All hair is made up of keratin. The more keratin one has in their hair the smoother and straighter you hair naturally is. Those with frizzy, unruly locks, have less keratin in their hair. The treatment is designed to deposit keratin into the hair shaft, in order to create a smoother finish for you. The treatment is not damaging to your hair and will help bring your hair back to a healthy condition if its been exposed to too much heat previously. After the treatment, the time it takes you to blow dry will be halved, and therefore your hair will not be exposed to as much heat.
Although I am not trained in make up, I do work with a number of AMAZING make up artists that I highly recommend. With many years experience under their belt and a huge knowledge of all brands of make up you won’t be disappointed Whether you know the look you want or you need complete guidance you are in safe hands with these artists.

With hair extensions in high demand I now offer Nano-rings, Micro rings and Pre-bonded extensions. I can also colour match for Clip in extensions which is a popular choice for Brides to be. I use Beauty Works Hair which is double drawn, Remy hair. When looked after properly can last up to a year.
During the consultation the following will be discussed. What type of extensions would better suit your hair type and lifestyle. Colour matching the hair to create a perfect colour blend. Desired length of hair which is recommended not be any longer than double the length of your natural hair. Checking for any contraindications that may prevent the application of hair extensions.
These are the smallest bonds in the Beauty Works range. Each strand is 0.8g per bond so are better suited to finer hair as they are less detectable, and lighter. Each strand is attached to a small amount of hair close to the root with a colour matched copper ring.
These are slightly bigger than the Nano bonds in the Beauty Works range. Each strand is 1g per bond and still very small but better suited to thicker hair. It is the same process of application of Nano Bonds.
With Nano Bonds and Micro Bonds they are applied with no heat or glue and the extensions can be reused for up to a year if cared for properly. Maintenance appointments are required every 6 weeks and hair will need to be removed after 3 months and rotated and re-applied.
Pre-bonded hair extensions are bonded to the hair with keratin and are the strongest method of application. These are better suited to someone who wants a more permanent method. These bonds need to be removed after 3 months and although the hair can be re-tiped and reused its not an easy process. People prone to greasy hair may not be suited to these extensions as natural oils can cause the bonds to weaken and slide.
Clip in extensions
Clip in extensions are perfect for adding length and volume on days where you just feel like it. Many brides choose these to boost their own hair on their wedding day. Giving them the added bonus of being able to use them again and again for all those special events.
For all methods of extensions a maintenance appointment is required after 6 weeks. This is to check for any matting of the hair at the root and to ensure the condition of the natural hair and scalp is maintained. Any bonds that have slid down or fallen out will be replaced and all other bonds will be tightened.
During the application process I will trim the natural hair of split ends before bonds are applied to ensure a perfect natural blend. Bonds will be applied with precision, with clean sectioning.
Once the bonds have been applied I will cut and style the extensions to blend with your natural hair. This is done by only cutting the hair extensions. This is so your natural hair shape is not affected when you remove the extensions.
Removal and Rotation
After 3 months hair extensions must either be removed if no longer desired or rotated. Rotation includes removing bonds row by row and moving them slightly to give your natural hair a break. Removal includes a cut and blow dry.
