Bridal Hair Quote by Neil Barton of Neil Barton Hairdressing

1940 style hair

It’s one of the most important days of your life so of course you want your hair to look its absolute best. The key to great looking hair is nourishment so start your preparation well in advance to make sure your hair is healthy for the big day. I recommend the Goldwell Rich Repair 60 second treatment, which will add essential minerals, building strength and adding gloss to your hair. Argan Oil is also great for de-frizzing and smoothing hair. Ideally, you should start using these products a few months before your wedding day. Combine these products with regular hair trims to achieve healthy and shiny hair for your big day.

They want to ensure their day runs smoothly and they are receiving the best possible service. By offering both services under one roof will off course increase revenue and interest thanks to word of mouth.

Quotes from Anya Dellicompagni, Francesco group’s director of hairdressing



For a bride her hair must be a compliment to the look of her dress and also a compliment to the theme of the big day. I always stress you should feel yourself, therefore, it’s important that the bride thinks about what they most feel comfortable with and especially when it comes to their hair and whether they feel more comfortable wearing it up or down.

Although your hair should feel more beautiful than your everyday look,don't plan on changing it for the day. So don't feel you need to grow it for 2 years for the big day or change you hair colour! There are so many things your hairdresser can use to add length or volume, from clip in extensions to padding, to give a hold and fullness to your hair.
