28 May 2013
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.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for doing such a great job for my wedding on the 12th May. I was really pleased with my hair and make up and so were the bridesmaids. I haven't any professional pics just yet but thought I would send one or two so you can see how we looked.
I will send some proper ones when I get the professional ones, there are some nice ones of my hair close up :-)

bridesmaids all looked stunning too and were really pleased that you
could change the style a bit to suit their faces!

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

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
