The Double Tree Hilton at the MK Dons stadium was packed full of Brides-to-be on Sunday. I had a great day talking to you all about hair and make up for your forthcoming weddings. I held a draw to win £50 off a Bridal hair and make up package. I am delighted to announce that Emma in Flitwick won the prize!!! Congratulations and I will enjoy making you over on your big day.

I had the evening off on Wednesday to watch Les Misrables in the West End London. What a moving production, I loved it!! The wigs, the hair, and the make up were amazing and the whole cast had amazing voices. Well worth seeing.

I met Elena and Charlotte this week for trials fof their wedding hair and make up. Elena had a very elegant up-do. Sleekly pinned in at the front with the back all pinned in with crossing over detail at the back. Elena is wearing a mantilla which is a Spanish veil and it’s absolutely beautiful. Her make up was very natural and light with good coverage, a light foundation and a luminous dewy finish to compliment her pale complexion.

Charlotte’s decided to have an up-do at her hair trial. She had collected pictures that helped to build the style she was looking for. I started off by creating a chignon at the back. The front was kept soft by taking the front sections and pinning them but not tightly. The left over sections (as Charlotte had really long hair!) were pinned at the crown of the head creating some really nice detail.

I had great fun Saturday afternoon making over Maureen for her 80’s charity event that she organised in aid of Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes. Maureen and her husband went as Sonny and Cher. So I gave Maureen a Cher make over, with dark eyes, fuller eye browns, bold blusher and dark red lipstick. Then I applied her wig and false lashes to finish off the look. I heard that this event rose over £4000!!

I will be back next week and thanks for reading my blog. Comeback to see what I have been up to!
