Again, apologies for the length between blogs. Wedding season has been the busiest since the end of WWII, so hands on work has had to take precedence I'm afraid, but I am now hoping to blog more often again.
I wanted to share this with you, because it touched me in so many ways.
This lady came to me for a trial for her daughter in law's wedding.
Her hair has been ravaged by chemo, bless her. It is almost straw like, sparse, has bald patches, some hair is so short I couldn't even grasp it, and it is very weak.
She wanted to look glamorous for the wedding and wanted clip in extensions. I have to admit, I had my reservations simply due to how sparse and short in places it is. I was not sure her hair could hold the extensions. But I was determined, I was not about to let this lady down.
So with absolute determination and lots of care (and product to help to hold them in place all day/night long), I created this beautiful half updo for her. I also had to find a way to conceal the crown area as you could see her scalp. I did this with some carefully placed root touch up and shine spray (I find this product so much lighter than a smoothing cream on some hair types), and gently brushed it all back away from her face, and pinned in place under the twists of the half updo. Because of how I did this, the scalp could not be seen at all. I left out a sweeping fringe, which I added depth to, and lots of the clip in hair left down at the sides for volume.
Usually, this is a simple style to create, and on anyone else I would not blog about it. But because of how difficult it was to achieve the end result, and the effect it had on this lady, I really wanted to share this with you.
She had tears in her eyes when she saw what I had created for her. I did too. This job isn't just about making brides look and feel beautiful - If I can give someone a feeling like this, like this beautiful lady felt, I have done my job. And that's one of the reasons I do love my job so much.
All enquiries, please either click here to send me an email or fill in the contact form on this site. I endeavour to reply ASAP.
See you soon!
