The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Hair

We all know how important your hair is for a wedding be it bride, bridesmaid or guest.  But for such a special occasion have you got your do sorted?   We caught up with #RCStylist & all round extension guru Keiran Fleming from LilK’s Hair to ask his top tips for wedding hair.

“Of course with any extension fitting, it’s about doing your research.  Go for a thorough consultations to find out what method is best suited to your hair type etc.   I’d recommend having them fitted around 2-4 weeks before the big day so the client can get used to them, this will also allow her to have trials.”

If you need to know what’s covered at a Consultation here’s a quick guide

Kieran added “I’ve been doing lots of half up half down styles, this is great for keeping hair off the face but keeping it long and flowing at the back.”   See Keiran’s images of recent bridal work.

Top of the Cannes!

 

All the headlines have centred on Sienna Miller’s fantastic style changes.  With the Cannes judge under close scrutiny herself, she re-styled her hair numerous times to get applause.   Top of the looks has to be this plait.  Fiddly on such short hair and even though it was for an evening red carpet even this slightly messy style worked beautifully.      Another intricate and messy plait was pulled off by Poppy Delevigne.

 

There were more hair ups to help the celebrities keep their cool in the Mediterranean heat.  We loved this simple elegant pony and side sweeping fringe by Charlize Theron during the day.   For her evening glamour look she swapped parting sides and added waves to her fringe.

 

Essential kit bag supplies:  Don’t forget to use grab a bottle of Remi Cachet Hair Oil to help combat the frizz.

HJi have a great gallery of all the top tresses from Cannes as it happened so flick through their gallery over your lunch and let us know if you rate any others.

BAFTA Hair Awards

Sunday night’s BAFTAs was another opportunity for us to scour the red carpet and pick the best of the best for your hair inspiration.  Here’s our top three:

 

Poldark’s Heida Reed let her hair down.  With rich chocolate browns and a scattering of few lighter hues around the face, she has very thick voluminous locks.   Try a Remi Cachet Super Weft in Colour 2 to recreate this look.   The finished look was tousled to create a more natural look to her big waves.

 

Our next choice is Ophelia Lovibond.  Sherlock’s new apprentice is a rising star and was sporting the popular long bob and fringe.   We loved her warm colour verging on a Strawberry Blonde – take a look at Remi Cachet’s colour 30 which is a perfect match.  Again she was going for a dishevelled look easy to achieve with using some Sexy Hair’s What A Tease to add some volume and consider just a few strands of extensions – maybe up to 50 to just add some extra depth to your hair and help hold the style.

 

 

 

Lastly, the relatively unknown winner of Best Actress is our  third choice; Georgina Campbell seems to have been missed off most of the red carpet galleries by the press.   She clearly was not expecting to win her accolade yet had selected to be very on trend with her hair in a side undone plait. The braid itself has plenty of hair and she has some stray shorter lengths softening the look.   It’s best to have day old hair for this look (and any updo’s) but a dash of the Remi Cachet Hair Oil will add shine and combat frizz in this changeable weather.  Perfect for being in the spotlight!

If you want to check out more of the looks from the night try this gallery on Glamour.
It’s Cannes later this week so we’ve even more glamorous red carpet looks to have #hairenvy over.

Our MET BALL Highlights

The Met Gala red carpet always gives us plenty to talk about and leaving the see-through dresses and ornate headwear behind, we want to share out top.

 

Diane Kruger & Georgia May Jagger showed soft waves teamed with fresh flowers.  The parting is heavily to one side and then sweeping back the side panel with a few grips to open up the face before adding the flowers.  Diane’s look is more undone, but equally would work brilliant for an bridal looks matching the flowers to the outfit colour or wedding theme.

 

 

Other notable curls include Kate Beckinsale – check out more celeb snaps here

Super sleek crew of Cara Delevingne, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Sienna Miller were sporting the on-trend wet look and knotted buns low to the nape.  This seamless look is easy to recreate and stylish for all occasions.

 

 

 

 

 

Gigi Hadid is the girl of the moment and we think she stole the show with leaving her hair effortlessly natural tumbling tresses.   Super long and beach ready, any blonde bombshell would be proud of.  It’s easy to emulate this model-look with extensions.   Leaving her darker roots, add a full head of Mini Tips to give volume and they are available in the 24” too for those who love #longhairdontcare.    We selected out our new mixed colour 7/20 for as the majority of the extensions with a few extra Platinum strands to offer that extra sun kissed effect around the face.  

 

 

 

 

 

We also just love this braided mohawk of JANELLE MONAE.  Undercut at the sides, super long for the trailing plait and teased apart to add height and width and maximum impact.    This has to be the look to try.  If you aren’t brave enough for an undercut don’t forget to try the sleeking back the sides to give the same result.
