Boho Chic Tutorial Waterfall Braid Plait



A great update here today on The Real Wedding Hair Blog .... A few months ago I was asked by wedding planner Jessie Thomson if I'd like to create a step by step tutorial demonstration for bridal hair and make up on her blog 'Jessie Loves'. I asked Cheltenham based make up artist Sophie Chamings to join me and together we used Jessie as our model and created a fresh contemporary bridal look. Jessie arranged for Marcus from Big Eye photography to snap away while Sophie and I 'attacked' our very willing victim!


I decided on creating a soft boho feel for the bridal look, a great look that is very current is the 'Waterfall Braid Plait', combined with a soft beach type wave and Sophie's fabulous make up I think you'll agree that Jessie looked stunning! 














The step by step tutorial can be found on the 'Jessie Loves' Blog....the description of Waterfall Braid / plait ...here... and the Classical Bridal Make up by Sophie....here.

Angie's Kingscote Barn Wedding Hair Styling Tetbury


Another great wedding to show you today on The Real Wedding Hair Blog at the stunning Kingscote Barn just outside Tetbury in the Cotswolds and accompanied by stunning photography by Clint from Pixel Photography


Bride Angie went for a high up do, classically styled and a true elegant hair style for a wedding. Clare Bryce from Pure Pampering was with me today creating the make up for the girls. Both Clare and I are recommended suppliers for Kingscote Barn and have both been creating make up and hair for brides at the barn for around 5 years now, I never tire of Kingscote barn it really is one of my favourite wedding venues to style hair at.


I love this shot....the girls were getting ready in The Byre which is part of the complex of stunning accommodation at the barn and just adjacent to the main entrance so a perfect vantage point to watch the boys arrive!! 






I'm often asked if the hairstyle will last the entire day, well this is a good question! If you attack the disco with some headbanging moves then maybe it will have the odd hair come astray but Angie proves here that the hair style will last through the average dance floor shimmy!

Wedding Hairdresser Kingscote Barn Tetbury


Hello and welcome to the latest update on The Real Wedding Hair Blog ....

As you can see from the wording in the corner of the photos we were in the company of photographer extraordinaire Clint Randall from Pixel Photography....A-MAZ-ING photographer!

Our bride Emilie was getting ready at home in Tetbury for her wedding at nearby Kingscote Barn, this is a hugely popular wedding venue in the Cotswolds and I'm very proud to be a recommended hairdresser for Kingscote Barn and I'm regularly there styling hair at the barns accommodation Spring Cottage or The Byre.



Emilie jumped at the chance to have an elegant but soft up do for her wedding hair style, she LOVED the feeling of being totally glam for her big day and I think you'll agree that she looked amazing!



Emilie's Mum Kelly used to be one of the wedding coordinators at Kingscote Barn so it was a natural choice that this is where the wedding would be held.

Styling Wedding Hair at The Manor House Moreton in Marsh


Hello form The Real Wedding Hair Blog, another great update showing some great Cotswold wedding hair styling..... A very popular venue for weddings in The Cotswolds is The Manor House Hotel Moreton in Marsh, I love styling wedding hair at this venue as it has a great olde worlde vibe but has been brought right up to date with contemporary decor and facilities even having it's own self contained bridal cottage with outdoor hot tub jacuzi!



 Lisette was the bride whose hair I was styling for her wedding, opting for an elegant up do with a beaded headdress she looked every bit the classical elegant bride!



The next few photos just go to show how changeable the weather can be, the bride and bridesmaids walked to the church behind The Manor House in the rain and walked back with fine weather and were able to relax in the hotels beautiful gardens!





Part of Lisette's beautiful up do hair style was plaited to create this braided effect along one side, this is a great look for a wedding and a very on trend look for both brides and bridesmaids hairstyles.
