MY SIGNATURE STYLES

LAURIE // HOLLYWOOD WAVES

Hair: Kim Annesley

Make up: Rebecca Saulters

Photography: David Cavan

Florist: Harriett Reilly Floral Design

About the style: Laurie had naturally fine hair that did not hold a curl well, so in order to create beautiful, full and long lasting Hollywood waves, Laurie needed a full head of clip in extensions added that allowed me to create her dream wedding hair. Hollywood waves are time intensive to create and are not a suitable option for bridesmaids hair due to time constraints, unless we discuss this at your trial. Allow 1.5 - 2 hours for Hollywood waves.

ROSIE // SMOOTH BEACH WAVES WITH BOHO BRAID

​Hair: Kim Annesley

Make up: @stephmakeup (instagram)

Photography: Pop Photography

Florist: The Lovely Little Flower Co

About the style: Rosie wanted to wear hear hair in a boho half up half down with a side braid and loose curls. As Rosie had quite thin hair that lacked volume, we needed to use a full head of clip in extensions to create more volume and body. When I used hair for her braid and then pinned her remaining hair into a half up, she still had lots of hair to tumble over her shoulders and frame her face beautifully.

Hair: Kim Annesley

Make up: Natalie McNab

Florist: Flowers at the Mill (instagram)

About the style: Carla had hair that did not hold a curl, but she had a lot of it, so I was still able to create lots of beautiful detail and texture in her updo which was emphasised by her natural highlights and lovely blonde tones through her hair.

BETHANY // MINIMALISTIC HOLYWOOD WAVE

Hair: Kim Annesley

Hair accessory: Deborah K Design

Make up: Rebecca Duff

Photography: Bethany Chisholm

About the style: Bethany had medium thickness hair that held a curl exceptionally well, so I was able to create her long Hollywood waves without the use of clip in extensions. Her waves were able to cope with a lot of brushing out - a must-do in order for me to create those beautiful seamless waves.

JOANNA // TEXTURED + ROMANTIC LOOSE LOW BUN

Hair: Kim Annesley

Hair accessory: The Little Pearl Co

Make up: Ellen Lunney

Photography: Tracy Steele

Florist: Victoriana Floral

About the style: Joanna's hair was naturally very good at holding a curl which meant that the texture I created in her updo worked really well. I also added 3 rows of clip in extensions for extra length and volume for her bun. Joanna wanted a romantic and "undone" looking updo with lots of face framing pieces.

TIMEA // TEXTURED BEACH WAVES WITH BOHO BRAID

Hair: Kim Annesley

Make up: Julie Toal

Photography: Rob Dight, Epic Love Photography

Florist: Victoriana Floral

About the style: Timea had fine hair and wanted extra length and volume for her wedding day. After adding a full head of clip in extensions I was able to create a beautiful thick fishtail braid with tumbling voluminous beachy waves for her elopement wedding. When extensions are applied it significantly increases the amount of time needed to curl the extra hair. This dreamy boho look took just over 2 hours to create.

BETHANY // FISHTAIL CROWN BRAID

Hair: Kim Annesley

Hair accessory: Deborah K Design

Make up: Rebecca Duff

Photography: Bethany Chisholm

About the style: Bethany had medium thickness hair with good length, so I was able to make her braids flow around in a perfect halo. She had some long layers through her hair which helped to prevent any thick or blunt paintbrush-like ends sticking out from the braids. Her short layers at the front worked perfectly to soften the look and frame her face.

About the style: Char asked me to create an effortless looking updo with lots of texture and loose pieces, yet something secure enough to withstand the breezy North Coast winds on her wedding day.

CATHERINE // SOFT HIGH BUN

Hair: Kim Annesley

Hair accessory & jewellery: The Little Pearl Co

Make up: Natalie McNab

Photography: Stephen Whiteside

About the style: Catherine's hair was naturally very fine and curly. I re-curled her hair using a large barrel tong and added extensions to create length and fullness for her bun. Catherine had perfect face framing layers in her hair - I was able to use to these layers to create a beautifully soft and romantic windswept looking updo.
