Q – I’m an alternative bride and want something a bit different for my wedding hair and make-up. Do you have any ideas that will help me stand out on my big day?
"Everyone’s idea of alternative is different, so the best piece of advice I can give to anyone planning their wedding hair and make-up is to be yourself. You’ll want to look back at your wedding photos and recognise the person you were when you said your vows. Think about how you can take aspects of your everyday style and elevate them for your bridal look. Do you have an undercut or a statement hair colour? If so, think about styles that show it off. Are you known for always having winged liner? Make that bigger and better than ever before.
"Secondly, look at what else you’ve planned for the wedding such as the dress and accessories, do they have a theme? If you have a floor-length green velvet gown that screams red carpet, go for big Hollywood waves and a statement red lip. If you need more advice, then contact your artist, and they will help you come up with ideas."
