Sam is our Boho Hair hero... she particularly loves ‘boho’, creative and vintage styling, but can turn her hand to anything, classic or contemporary. We spoke to Sam to get her tips and tricks and find out more about her passion for wedding hair below...
Tell us what you love most about doing wedding hair?
The moment when the bride looks in the mirror and smiles – that’s what I love the most. It’s something I’ve always loved and always done, the creative side of hairdressing. The hair and make up’s always the icing on the cake and I think bride’s can regret not having theirs done professionally.
Do you have a favourite hairstyle?
I would say my favourite style is ‘boho’ with fresh flowers, the undone updo, but I also love a classic sleek look and really love vintage styling and accessories.
Do you have any advice for brides when choosing a hair style for their wedding?
Allow plenty of time for your trial, be open minded, but don’t try and look too ‘different’ to your normal self as you might not feel comfortable. Just like buying your dress, what you have in your mind is often different when you try it. Also bear in mind your hair type and whether the style you want is achievable – clip in extensions can work wonders for bulk and length. Remember the hair accessories need to work with the style, so perhaps chat to your hairdresser before buying perhaps a tiara when a vintage side piece might work better.
How can a bride make sure that her style lasts all day?
Dependent on style, hair’s often best washed the night before without too much conditioner so its not too soft, bridal hairdressers are trained to make sure your hair stays in – I always love the comments I get – “my hair stayed in all day and still looked good next day” – very rewarding.
What would be your piece of advice for the big day?
Don’t sweat the small stuff – its really common for minor hiccups to occur on your wedding day, but in the grand scheme of things just smile and enjoy every minute of your day being pampered with those you love around you – these little hiccups are the things you’ll laugh at later on.
