Tired of spending hours maintaining your lengthy locks? Why not be daring and go short for spring/summer 2014. Sleek bobs and chic pixie crops have been at the forefront of the fashion catwalks and red carpets this season. The good news is that you don’t need to be a red carpet darling to face the chop, you just need to get the right advice.
But before taking the plunge what points should be taken into consideration? Here are our top tips.
Face shape comes on top of the list; generally a small oval face is best suited to this look. Although with the right consultation we can achieve a Pixie designed to suit you.
For example, if you have a square or oblong face shape. An asymmetric twist to the cut will soften the geometry of your face shape. If your face shape is more round, a squarer fringe will suit you more.
Colour as always is the ultimate accessory and is essential for the Pixie cut. Our choice this season is a Mocha Blonde root phasing out to a clearer beige blonde.
Book today with one of our stylists, have a picture or two of your dream Pixie and with our help you will be ready to Rock this Spring Summer It Look.
We just want to thank you for making our wedding day a success!
We are featured in a magazine and I've put our top vendors in there. Very exciting!
As a Hair and make up artist the one thing I am asked about constantly by brides is will the make-up last me through the day. In the past I have used ordinary Creams and liquid foundations. I still love the liquid foundation with a brush method but another big factor in Bridal Makeup is time.
Often I am asked to do Bridesmaids plus the bride and both Mothers so as you can imagine a lot of work is involved to make sure the look is right and done in the specified time scales.
Airbase make up is a fine mist of silicon based foundation that is airbrushed onto the skin the application creates a light natural looking veil of make-up, covering all skin blemishes and tattoos. It feels amazing on the skin and importantly has longevity and lasts up to 15 plus hours with a dewy natural looking finish.
The photographers love it because it needs minimal touching up with the photoshop.
Bridal airbrush make up £40.00
Special occasion airbrush make up £35.00
Thank-you Emily, we all think you looked amazing.

Much belated email, but I wanted to share some pictures with you of the amazing job you did on my hair on the day, and what it looked like in the dress.
I had lots of wonderful comments on it, and the fact that you managed to pull it off with exactly the right vintage feel, and beautiful gloss and texture, is testament to your amazing talent and experience. Especially without a trial!

Hope to see you again soon
Very best wishes

A very busy month with weddings at Victoria Hair & Spa. With 6 completed and 2 more to go this week, May has once again proved to be a very popular time to get married.
I'm always impressed by the lengths and organisation our brides go through to insure one of the most important days of there life runs smoothly. This of course is backed by the amazing venues I have the pleasure of visiting whilst assisting them on the morning.
Thank-you to Tracey Reynolds from Switzerland for the kind feedback and pictures below.

Exciting news for 2013 brides. After our launch of Airbase foundation last year we have decided to make this service complimentary with our bridal make up in 2013.
What is airbrush makeup? Airbrush makeup artistry is a patented makeup application technique that utilises compressed air to spray on a fine mist of base foundation.
How does it feel? Airbrush makeup is exceptionally lightweight. Clients say they feel as if they aren't even wearing makeup.
What are the benefits of airbrush makeup? Airbrush makeup provides flawless coverage by minimising skin imperfections while giving skin a beautifully natural finished looking result. It is water resistant and will last for up to fourteen hours or more.
Is airbrush makeup right for everyone? Airbrush makeup is suitable for people of all ages and every skin condition. The makeup is hypoallergenic and fragrance free. In fact, airbrush makeup is the only makeup that is suitable for the new "High Definition" standard in television
For a complimentary consultation and demonstration call Victoria on 01278 427111
Treat yourself this year in our newly refurbished beauty room. Enjoy a crystal clear microdermabrasion or Decleor facial for a full facial detox . call 01278 427111 today
Welcome to a new season of inspiration. I hope you are inspired by our take on this Years hair and beauty trends.
THE RETURN OF THE TOP KNOT
We have long been the fans of the top knot so seeing it back on the catwalks really put a smile on our faces. A disheveled bun is the perfect side of messy cool and we can't wait to see more of it come autumn time. Be warned though - this one requires a large amount of hairspray to keep it firmly in place all day long.
Not the Amy Winehouse kind, think more vintage Sophia Loren. This is going to be a great style for fall brides who want to ditch the updos and go for something more dramatic. When looking for a point of reference, I recommend going through vintage magazines. Remember this, classics never make a comeback. They wait for that perfect moment to take the spotlight from overdone, tired trends
*Recommended treatments-special occasion hair from £15.00
*Bridal hair £60.00
Bobs come in all forms; angled, modern, lobs, etc. The cut and styling options are endless. They key to pulling of the perfect bob is finding a look that complements your bone structure. If you have a more round face, then opt for a lob with side-swept bangs. If you have a longer neck and pronounced chin, then a modern bob with a blunt fringe will make your eyes pop!
If you’ve got ‘em, flaunt ‘em. Bangs are the ultimate hair accessory this season. Whether they’re full and square, short and rounded or just swept to the side, bangs frame the face and accentuate the eyes.
*Recommended treatments-Cut & Style from £23.00
RICH CHOCOLATES, COOL REDS
You’re going to see a shift in colour this season, especially in brunettes and reds. Colour will go from less caramel to deep chocolate, less coppery to cool and slightly spicy crimson. During a colour consultation, I like to reference food as a visual. Hot fudge and orange marmalade paint a clearer picture.
*Recommended treatments-full head tint from £35.00
*Full or half head lowlights-from £35.00
Think subtle, neat nails rather than anything too TOWIE! Nails will be going along the route of groomed and understated with that little bit of edge. A soft white lacquer over sheer beige which we think is super chic and gorgeous.
*Recommended treatments- GELeration french tip £25.00
*French polish £17.00
*Jessica deluxe manicure £30.00
When it comes to this trend, less is more. Eat well, sleep well and get regular facials for cashmere-smooth skin to show off your minimal make-up look. Stick to creamy nude hues and add subtle sculpting to cheek-bones using subtle, sparkle-free bronze tones. The alternative is to go super glam, we are thinking rich red lips a hint of colour over the lips with a sharp gel liner over the lids.
*microdermabrasion facial £49.00
*bridal,special occasion make up from £35.00
*Decleor aromaplasti facial £45.00
Well-groomed brows are essential for pulling off a minimal make-up look. Keep yours in check with regular waxing leaving the shape as bold and natural-looking as possible.
*Recommended treatments- eyebrow shape £7.50
