It’s late March and I’m off to do Lizze’s wedding hair and makeup trial.
A certain amount of preparation went into creating what I though would be the perfect balance of vintage, elegance, style and youth, while at the same time complimenting her breathtaking Grace Kelly style dress.
Lizze’s initial hair ideas included low buns and Grecian inspired texturised styles, all very red carpet at the moment. It was my job to find the compromise that matched the vintage makeup she had always pictured and an elegance to match the truly wonderful location she is getting married in, St Paul’s Cathedral.
By creating height at the crown and keeping the style medium to high on the back of the head, you reveal all of the neck and keep that structured, classic look. The curls and swirls that make up the bun give the style the youth and a more up to date feel.
This month I also found myself on a set with Andy Barnes for a test shoot for his tattoo makeups – nearly 2 hours in and not even finished yet!! It’s a working title so more details and on set photos to follow!
