Indian Wedding Hair
Indian weddings are exciting for me because of the extravagant hairstyles! I love to create colossal hair sculptures for my Indian brides, full of braiding and pincurls. I have learned a few tricks along the way for helping big hairstyles hold up under heavy dupattas. An Indian bride generally requires a more skilled beauty team to get her looking fabulous for her ceremony and reception, and I enjoy working together with a makeup artist and sari/dupatta lady to make sure the bride feels comfortable no matter how elaborate her outfit is.
Due to traditional Indian ceremony times, we often have to start hair and makeup very early in the morning. Rest assured that even though your party must wake up early, that my hairstyles do last throughout the day! I have heard rumours that my hairstyles hold up after napping as well, although I cannot guarantee this for everyone.
Your photos are of the highest importance to me. It is for this reason that only the most ideal products will be used. This is very important in dark hair because cheap product can flake or disintegrate, leaving white bits, dull areas or even greasy sections! These errors stand out in photos and can be difficult to fix, even for professional photographers. I have many years of experience styling hair for professional photo shoots, so you can trust that your hair will be picture perfect all day long.
Darker hair can look boring in photos without some proper highlights to help show off the hairstyle. Please visit my section on hair colour for Brides for more information.
As of 2012 I offer pinning services by special request only (and at an additional fee), because despite my expertise I find that a bride’s family has the final say in how she looks, and often it is a respected aunty who asks to do the pinning instead. Any tikka placement or other hair jewelry requires approval by a respected family member before I secure it.
Custom packages are available for Indian weddings to accommodate each ceremony, reception hairstyle changes, and different dates can be included. Please contact me for your customized quote.
