Dionne’s amazing hair service and wedding experience:
Vannessa is an industry friend and I’ve known her for a while. She asked me to do her wedding, which I was really pleased about. Vannessa also asked me to bring some of my assistants on board to help with her bridesmaids and bridal party for the day. So we did the bride and eight bridesmaids in total. It was a really good day. I was invited to attend Vannessa’s wedding, which was amazing. She booked me for the entire day. I had a seat at one her wedding tables, which was really sweet.
She came to me for a consultation before her wedding. We discussed her face shape, and how she wanted her hair styled. She wanted something very slick, smooth and classy that would last for the day.
I met Vannessa on the morning of her wedding at her suite where she stayed, the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in Kings Cross. I Styled her hair in a sleek chignon with crisscross with the hair overlapping at the lower top which you could see from the sides and the back. Chignon’s were very in fashion at that time and was one of the key wedding hairstyles. That is still being done today. It looked very lovely on Vannessa. And it was finished off with a beautiful hair accessory.
I sent my team down to do the bridesmaids’ hair. I later went to check on them to make sure the team and everybody was happy. After we had finished, I went off to eat, then made my way to other client’s attending Vannessa’s wedding. I then styled two of her other guests at the Metropole Hotel Park Lane, before making our way to the wedding.
We were supposed to make a change to Vannessa’s hair in the later part of the wedding. But due to the time frame and the demand on her, we didn’t get to change the hair. So, we tidied her hair and kept it throughout the day.
I then enjoyed the wedding reception for a while, which was amazing. I had a good time there. I enjoyed it and kept a check on Vannessa’s hair and tidied it when needed. The layout and the venue were beautiful. It was like a dream. The wedding planner was Debra Mai and they did a really good job, Vannessa is a lovely lady and i wish her all the best in her marriage.
