Bridal hair is glamorous and personal. Every wedding is unique. So your hair has a lot to live up to on your big day!
Choose a style that flatters your face and gives you confidence:
Round face – create height and avoid adding width
Long face – avoid height and create width with fullness
Oval face – most styles are flattering
Square Face – add softness and avoid anything too tight
What’s your dress like?
Classic styles take inspiration from vintage looks/Hollywood glamour
Modern styles – think of texture and the overall look combined with the dress keep it as simple as possible.
Wedding Hair Trial
2 months before the wedding day, for the bride..
Tell me about your dress. Hair styles you like or don’t like. Show me magazine pictures and photographs. Help me imagine what you imagine.
I’ll create different looks that suit your hair type, face shape and dress style. I’ll bring a veil and hair accessories to pull the whole look together.
We’ll record it all on digital photo’s so you can see it from every angle and is a record for the day.
We’ll discuss timings for the morning and I’ll advise on colour and condition treatments before the big day.
The Wedding Day
I arrive early and look after the Bridal Party including all bridesmaids and flower girls and mother of the bride.
If you have a large family or maybe your guests have travelled, I can bring a second stylist to look after the in laws or friends and family at the hotel.
I always stay till the end right up to the moment you step into the car. So you can be sure your hair is perfect for the bridal party photographs and you arrive at the ceremony looking great.
We had THEE best hair stylist for our big day, not only did she do my hair exactly how I dreamt it would look , she also did 4 individual fabulous styles for my bridesmaids and my mum. Lorraine is all about weddings, She is so super excited and so super organised she brings this wonderful sense of calm to the wedding morning, We just loved her and best of all she stayed with me until I was ready to leave for ceremony, We loved her, she is amazing, there is no style she cant create. I could not recommend her more, Roisin & Dave.
“When Lorraine is on a job with me I know it will go well, she creates masterpieces with ease and her relaxed nature and professionalism makes sure everything goes smoothly never one to get ruffled she can be put into almost any situation and come out on top”– Naomh Kirwan, Make-up Artist
I can’t recommend Lorraine highly enough. From the very beginning she was so professional and helped to ensure I understood everything I needed for the hair trial and on the actual day. Nothing I asked was too much…at the trial she showed me 5 styles, and made recommendations for hair accessories. On the day she worked tirelessly on my hair until I was 100% happy and even sorted out a few aunts with their fascinators.She’s so much more than a hairdresser, she held the whole morning together for me and girls on the day, from ensuring all of us had perfect hair, to making sure we all stayed on track and on time. She even helped me get in my dress under the panicked last minutes time crunch because my maid of honour’s dress strap had broken, and it was even Lorraine that had a sewing kit to hand. It was Lorraine to the rescue the whole morning!My hair, my bridesmaid’s hair and my mother’s hair all stayed perfectly in tact until the early hours of the morning. When it comes to Lorraine, you can’t ask for anyone better. She’s nothing short of amazing and will make your wedding day that much more smooth and calm, which is just what you need on the morning of.
“I just want to say a BIG BIG thank you for being so great on the morning of my wedding – we were delighted to have you “hanging out” with us. All the girls looked amazing and loads of our guests were commenting on our hairstyles so I was singing your praises! You really did a great job and I can’t thank you enough!!”
“Thank you again so much for making the morning of my wedding so relaxing and easy going. I felt amazing with the hair & makeup and it stayed in place all day & night – I only needed to do was touch up my lip colour for the photos after the church, it was great not having to worry about checking my hair & makeup every 5 mins! Even when I made my speech (I insisted on doing one!), I got very emotional and burst into tears and my makeup still was perfect after!!I will make sure to send you both the photos when I get back from honeymoon.Thanks again sooooo much!!!! “
“Greetings from a very hot Dubai!! I just wanted to drop you a mail to thank you very much for everything on Thursday. You were fantastic, calm, friendly and punctual ???? just what a bride needs.
I was absolutely delighted with my hair as were my bridesmaids and the two mothers. Everyone was raving about my hairstyle, it was just what I wanted and a lot of brides to be were dying to know who had done it and what your details were. I’d be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a stylist.Thanks so much again!”
”Lorraine was great to have on the morning of the wedding, she was very calm and collected, something I definitely needed that day of all days! I was delighted with my hair when I saw it, it looked as relaxed as I wanted it to look and not too ”bridal”. The bridesmaids also loved their hair and got lots of compliments on the day. Thanks again Lorraine!”
“Absolutely thrilled with Lorraine, couldn’t recommend her more. It was so stress free to have her come to the house and made it all so relaxing, she looked after everybody – myself, bridesmaids, flowergirls and mother, so nobody had to leave the house all morning which made the morning very relaxing. Everybody looked beautiful and were really thrilled with their hair styles. She stayed until the last minute and gave us all a touch up before we left so that everybody looked perfect. Extremely pleasant, great advisor and thinks of everything, delighted to have had the pleasure of her expertise”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lorraine on all sorts of gigs .. editorials for Xpose, make -overs for Ireland AM, press days etc. you name it, she’s done it! Lorraine always does a fantastic job and brings a lot to the creative process. Of course, I am a little biased as she is one colourist that I totally trust with my hair. I don’t even ask her what colour she’ll be using, as it works very time!”
