WOWZER ! Waves and braids this year are super popular but I have to share with you Hannahs jaw dropping , eye popping wedding day hair style. Let me share with you some background about my bride Hannah.
I met Hannah in April 2018 for her bridal trial in Goonhavern near Truro. Hannah knew exactly how she wanted her wedding day hair and she completely trusted me to design a hairstyle to meet her requirements. As her inspiration she showed me some photos from my instagram and some from pintrest.
When doing Hannah's trial i added clip-in hair extentions which would help add the length that she wanted to compliment her low back dress as well as add fullness.
Hannahs wedding day the 25th August 2018 soon arrived and heres a photo that I took of the finished result.
As you can see I added a dutch fishtail braids at the front as Hannah didn't want any hair on her face and I also added flowers at the back to keep with the bohemian relaxed theme to match Hannahs outdoor wedding venue. With the flowers and her catherdral length veil it all came together perfectly. If you head over to my instagram page you can see a video of Hannahs hair too.
Hannah wanted all of her Braidsmaids to have halo braids with gyposophiloa carefully placed in it. Here are the bridesmaids finished result.
I do love a selfie and I thank Hannah's bridesmaid Caroline Thomas for the picture.
I absolutely loved creating these hairstyles for Hannah and her bridal party and I would love to re-create something similar for any future brides getting married as i love to create bespoke hairstyles to my brides requirements.
I attended the awards evening in Plymouth after making it through to the finals at the South West Wedding awards, I really felt so Privileged to be there amongst so many talented Wedding Suppliers within the South West, the room was packed with over 300 people present.
On the Journey to the awards I felt so grateful and Proud to make it through to the finals .
When they announced that I had won the Bridal Hair Category for the southwest I was so overwhelmed and I really didn't expect it and I'm so thankful to all my brides who voted for me, I have loved my 2017 Weddings and being able to offer my support, knowledge and experience to my Brides to give them the perfect Wedding day hair.
I received my reviews back this week from the Brides who nominated me and they gave me so much support as a small business and I will be keeping them close to me for a long time but I would like to share a couple with you;
* " Emma was absolutely fantastic to have as my hair stylist on my wedding day. I honestly couldn't have asked for a more friendly , professional, helpful and talented person to help on my special day, She went above and beyond for me and is just such a beautifully kind lady! She made me feel so at ease on my big day, it was as though we had been friends for years with how comfortable she made me feel, especially as I had no bridesmaids. She helped get my 11 month old son dressed whilst I got into my dress and then helped me with that also!! She is a gem and I think she so deserves this award!!
* Emma was more than a hairdresser on our wedding day, she was part of the Wedding party! she was so charming, friendly and personable and we felt we had all known her for years and she should come down the aisle with us ! My Bridal hair was exactly as I had envisaged and described and she worked tirelessly to ensure it was just as I had dreamed. My bridesmaids, the mums and myself felt a million dollars once she had finished and our day wouldn't have been the same without her. Thank you Emma , I especially won't forget you being seconds away from going out to scour the local hedgerows for the flowers for our hair!
This is just two reviews from the pages of reviews I have received which are very personal to me and so I want to keep the rest close to me.
For 2018 I have lots of exciting projects to plan and collaborations , so watch this space on that one but also I will continue to support my Brides to give them the Perfect Wedding hairstyle.

A bridal trial is definitely something to share in the company of friends or your loved ones, its not often us ladies get to have someone come to our homes to style our hair for us so why not turn it into a girly get together.
Caroline shared her bridal trial with her mum and we had lots of fun. These ladies had such an amazing mother and daughter relationship it was so heart warming to be around.
Caroline always wears her hair down however for an October Wedding day she wanted a loose updo that wouldn't be disturbed in any wind or rain or whatever else our Cornish weather may bring. But she still wanted to maintain a hairstyle that showed the length of her hair and a hairstyle she felt confident with. I loved creating this Bespoke hairstyle for her and finishing it off with some gorgeous fresh flowers which all complemented her low back dress beautifully.
'We had so much fun on the trial that I ended up doing a trial for Caroline's mum too as it helped her to visualise the updo she hoped for and for her to see if it would compliment her amazing hat, which it did perfectly and it helped give Caroline's mum the peace of mind she needed to relax on her daughters wedding day.
Thank you Caroline for sharing your wedding day with me and sharing the amazing relationship you and your mum have. Its something I will definitely always remember from your wedding day.
So to all my future brides I would highly recommend sharing your bridal trial with a friend/Family member.

Hi, I am Hairbyemmac a Bridal Hair Specialist in Cornwall and I just want to say thank you for viewing my first ever blog post! My Job is amazing and so I wanted to share some of my 2017 Brides with you all.

Meet Cleo ,
Gorgeous isn't she !? Cleo got married at Trevenna Barns on the 12th October 2017 of this year. Cleo's Hair was the thing she loved most about herself but after the birth of her first daughter she lost it all due to alopecia. Cleo asked me if I could style her Wig for her wedding day after she was advised that some stylists would not do it, which was upsetting for me to hear so I can only imagine how Cleo felt.
When Cleo booked me I could not wait to carry out her trial for her, I had butterflies in my stomach of excitement as cheesy as it sounds and I wanted to make sure Cleo felt a million dollars by the time I finished her trial.
Mission accomplished, Cleo beamed with excitement after her trial and so did I, I could not wait for her Wedding day! She told me her hair was just how she would of had it before the alopecia.
Cleo's wedding day had arrived and I carried out her wedding day style, she had the hairstyle, flowers and veil she dreamed of and well see for yourself how amazing she looked.
These fantastic photos are captured by Grant Lampard Photography and they will always make me Smile.
This is why I love my job so much because I get to remind Brides just how beautiful they really are.
