Bridal hair and makeup play a quintessential role in every bride’s look. An expert touch which will guarantee, by using the right products and techniques, that you look AMAZING and your hair and makeup last ALL day.
Each bride has different preferences in hair and makeup, for those looking for a chic yet understated look, with naturally glamorous hair, don’t miss today’s feature article where we get to chat with Mallorcan-based bridal stylist who specialises in creating natural makeup looks and hair styles—and with it, showcase the natural beauty in every woman.
I came late to the world of professional makeup and hair after never feeling that real sense of fulfilment I wanted from my career. I knew that the empowerment of the amazing women I saw everywhere around me was what really motivated me, but it wasn’t until I connected this with my love of all things makeup and styling that I had the lightbulb moment that led me to the best decision I’ve ever made. I sought out training with Kristina Gasperas who in my opinion provides training in the most sophisticated and opulent of bridal looks. From this I developed my own signature style of natural understated glamour.
Once upon a time I might have said makeup (as training in hair came second for me). Nowadays though I really couldn’t choose, I love both!
There is no true substitute for seeing your chosen hair and makeup look on you before the big day comes, but when a trial absolutely isn’t possible I always allow extra time on the day to allow us to talk through things properly. I will always ask for inspiration images beforehand and I also offer an online consultation service.
I’m a really social person, so getting to be a part of the energy and excitement on the day of a wedding is always special. Of course, you also can’t beat those final moments when the bride is dressed and ready to leave the ceremony and we are doing final touches to make sure she looks absolutely perfect.
Quite simply, women inspire me! In today’s world we are expected to be all things – daughter, friend, partner, mother, colleague, household manager, business person. Women are a force to be reckoned with.
Be open to the use of hair extensions (these help to support your own hair to stay in your chosen style) and be prepared to have to maintain your makeup with regular powder touch ups.
I use a really wide variety of brands but my only stipulation is that they are cruelty free. In my kit you will see the likes of Hourglass, Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury, Kevin Murphy and Ouai, but no MAC for example.
I can’t possibly pick favourites but it’s always nice to be made to feel part of the day and part of the girl gang!
I once had to cover some quite significant bruising on the groom’s face after he had unfortunately dropped a barbell on himself at the gym!
I’d love to grow my business into the bridal beauty education field.
Coffee is life. No more to be said.
I love both, but if I had to choose it would be cats.
Another tough one, but I think mountains!
