Wedding Wednesday – Bridal Hair

If you follow wedding Wednesdays on the blog, you will know that I have been trying to introduce you to local talent and real people over the last few weeks with wedding cakes by Paula @ Pic N Mix Cakes and photography from Mark Maguire Photography.

Well this week let me introduce you to Lorraine, the owner of Amazon Hair in Newbridge Co. Kildare 045432037, who is here to speak to/show us about bridal hair. 

Lorraine first started hairdressing when she was 16 and has had a grá for it ever since. Upon finishing school Lorraine attended Robert Chambers School of Hairdressing for 16 months as well as working in a local hairdressers for practical experience.

For the past ten years Lorraine has been self employed and has kept herself up to date with current hair and fashion trends by regularly attending courses (mucho important for a hairdresser in my opinion) so that she can ensure she is providing the best service to her clients.

“I love the feeling of making people feel good about themselves, as the saying goes ' if your hair is right you feel right' and every women knows this is true.”

Over the years Lorraine has built up great relationships with her clients, and this she feel is particularly important  when it comes to brides.

“When I get to know someone’s personality I get a great feel to the way they would like their hair done for their special day.  Your wedding day is one of the most special days so its  important that you 
feel special and that's where I come in.”
For bridal hair, Lorraine likes to do two trials so that on the morning of the wedding there is no panic. In the first trial she will ask for a little peek at her dress (which she loves) and then suggests a few styles that could suit both the bride and the dress. This gives a good idea what style will look best. 

The second trial is usually done two weeks before the wedding and  this is a preview of how the bride will look like on the day. 

“I love the buzz and giggles that comes on the morning of a wedding from the bride and bridesmaids, you really cant beat a room full of girls being pampered oh & champagne”

All of the pictures featured in today's post are Lorraine's and I think you will agree they are all stunning!! For those of you getting married in the next years Lorraine's advise is to cut out pictures of styles you like and bring them along to your hairdresser.  

If you are in Newbridge or the surrounding areas and are looking for a great hairdresser, I can't recommend Lorraine highly enough. Head over to her facebook page for more info etc and as always feel free to leave her some lovely comments below!
