How to Get Glossy Wedding Hair

How to get glossy wedding hair

What if I told you, you could get glossy wedding hair without using any styling products and that it’s as simple as choosing the right hairbrush.

The right brush can be a total game changer for your hair on your wedding day.

Toss out that cheap plastic brush you’ve been using, which can tug and tear your hair causing split ends and damage. Instead invest in the secret weapon of the Duchess of Cambridge.

If you long for big bouncy glossy waves like Kate Middleton on your wedding day, then The Bristle Brush is your new best friend.

Beloved by royalty, beauty editors and hairdressers alike, The Bristle Brush has also been the brush of choice for professional stylists at London Fashion Week.

The Bristle Brush Company founder Sophie Wiltshire previously worked at the exclusive Harrods salon in London and her beautiful brushes are hand crafted in a rustic, Spanish coastal town.

TESTING THE ROUND BRISTLE BRUSH ON DAMAGED HAIR

I am cursed with fine hair, an oily scalp and very dry, damaged ends. Usually the only way to get any kind of life into it is with a ton of product.

Hence why I was highly skeptical about what the round Bristle Brush could do for my hair.

But I was thrilled with the results.

The medium round Bristle Brush not only gave me soft natural volume, without any volumising product at all, but also tamed and smoothed my ends!

My hair felt light and airy instead of it’s usual flat and fluffy texture.

Even the ends felt smoother after the first blow dry.

A week later and there is a notable difference in the texture of my hair. The ends actually feel less coarse and my hair feels more manageable.

I’m loving using the medium and large Bristle Brushes on my brides-to-be – they give glossy, bouncy volume every time and are especially effective on fine, lifeless hair.

I’m so impressed that I can’t wait to get my hands on the Bristle Brush Paddle Brush.

Eco frieindly packaging and the unique hand crafted wooden handle gives the Bristle Brush it’s iconic look.

 

VERDICT: you need The Bristle Brush in your life right now

Check out the 5 REASONS WHY below:

 

1 CONDITIONS YOUR HAIR NATURALLY

A boar Bristle brush is more than just a brush – it’s a conditioning tool designed to smooth and de frizz your hair.

The ethically sourced boar bristles effectively carry your sebum, the natural oil produced by your scalp, to the ends of your hair.

This reduces dryness and coats the hair shaft in natural oils, making it visibly more shiny and healthy.

 

2 GIVES YOU A FRIZZ FREE BLOW DRY

By naturally coating the hair in sebum it helps smooth the hair cuticle – the outer layers of your hair shaft – which significantly reduces frizz in your hair.

This also better helps reflect light giving you that shiny glossy finish to your hair.

The round Bristle Brush will give you more volume with less damage

 

  1. STIMULATES YOUR SCALP GIVING YOU HEALTHIER HAIR

The bristles on the brush are designed to stimulate blood flow to your scalp. This is vital to ensure essential nutrients reach your scalp and feed your hair, giving you healthier and stronger hair growth.

The brush also helps prevent oil build up on your scalp.  Which means you don’t need to wash your hair as often.

 

  1. WOODEN BARREL PROTECTS YOUR HAIR FROM HEAT DAMAGE

Unlike ceramic brushes, which heat up whilst you are using your hairdryer, The Bristle Brush wooden barrel does not get hot.

This results in less damage to your hair. The lightweight cork handle is also super comfortable to hold making it easier to use during a longer blow-dry.

 

  1. REDUCES YOUR NEED FOR STYLING PRODUCTS

The brush glides through your hair without any snagging and gives natural volume and lift at the root when used correctly.

You don’t need to drag the brush as you blow dry – in fact you can use less tension than normal.

HOW TO USE YOUR BRISTLE BRUSH

Ideally let your hair dry 70% – the brush works best on damp hair. Then divide and section your hair.

Blow dry your hair in small sections from the base of the head and work your way up to the top. Move more slowly with the brush than you are used to. Let the brush do the work.

BE CONSISTENT

Use your Bristle Brush regularly and consistently and you will see the long-term hair health benefits and get glossy wedding hair, in perfect time for your wedding day.

Top 3 styling products Vicki couldn’t live without:

 I always prep hair by first blow drying with Balmain Volume Mousse to give the hair extra volume. This mousse is fantastic as it gives lift without stickiness. I also use Batiste Dry Shampoo. I spray it at the roots for extra texture and grip whilst putting up bridal hair. I’ve also fallen in love with Tecni Art Air Fix Hairspray. It gives great hold but never makes the hair look stiff.

Winter Wedding Bride Vintage Style

Vintage Hollywood Style Bride

Loved working with our stunning vintage-styled winter wedding  bride Hannah from South Wales.

If you’re a winter bride to be, here’s some fabulous retro beauty inspiration for your special day.

Hannah and her now husband Mark married at the wonderful Rose Dew Farm located on the stunning heritage coast of  South Wales.

Vintage Hollywood style bride

Vintage Hollywood-glamour inspired our beautiful South Wales Bride Hannah on her winter wedding day.

Hannah is a gorgeous brunette with classic porcelain skin. She loves all things vintage and the golden era of Hollywood glamour. So it was only natural that she chose vintage inspired hair and makeup for her beautiful rustic, vintage-inspired wedding.

I loved her attention to detail and adored her 1940’s inspired nails. They worked perfectly with her vintage Hollywood winter wedding theme.

Vintage Inspired Winter Wedding

Winter Wedding Bride – Hollywood Style

If you want to feel like a movie star as winter wedding bride then go for the classic sophistication and timeless elegance of a Hollywood screen siren.

Choose luxurious foundations infused with subtle illuminators or mix your favourite with Charlotte Tilbury WonderGlow to give you that radiant Hollywood glow.

Classic red lips give you instant Hollywood screen goddess glamour. Precise application is essential to perfect your pout. So use a lip liner combined with a statement red lipstick with a stain finish like Rouge Dior Couture in Red Smile.

Vintage Hollywood wedding hair

Soft romantic Hollywood style curls with a pin up style of the 1940’s for our vintage inspired winter wedding bride Hannah

Keep the drama in your lips and opt for a barely-there cheek tint with just a hint of colour. Finish with a smooth slick of black eyeliner above your top lashes.

Complete your Hollywood bridal look with soft, bouncy waves. Set your hair with a deep side parting using Percy and Reeds Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse. Curl using heated rollers or hot tong individual sections of your hair. Then pin in place and leave your hair to cool for at least 15 minutes.

Gently brush through your long soft waves and spritz with shine spray. Then sweep the hair up at one side with a jewel encrusted hair accessory. This will give you the perfect Hollywood bridal look for your special day.

Grab these eight essential beauty buys for summer brides and look flawless all day no matter how humid the weather on your wedding day.

If you’re planning a wedding in the heat of summer or flying away to a tropical destination then the last thing you want is your makeup sliding down your face when you say ‘I Do’.

Hot and sticky environments combined with wedding nerves put your makeup under pressure on the day. You need ‘melt-proof’ formulas and oil free beauty products that stay put in a heatwave.

This soothing, oil free moisturiser has an immediate and long-lasting matifying effect on your skin giving you a fresh and clear complexion.

How to get Beautiful Hair on Your Wedding Day with Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can be a bride’s best friend.

If you’re dreaming of long luscious locks on your wedding day but your hair is more ‘blah’ than a wet Sunday then it’s time to consider hair extensions.

Extensions give you longer, thicker, fuller hair that looks completely natural and gives you so many more OPTIONS and choice for your wedding day hair style.

As well as adding length they are also a terrific way to add volume and body to fine and thinning hair and they work for all face shapes and all ages.

And depending upon the type of extension you choose you can have stunning long hair for your hen night, your wedding day and your honeymoon as well as for up to 6 months after your big day.

You just need to know your ‘wefts from your clip-ins’ and with a little insider knowledge you can get your dream bridal hair style for your wedding day.

Hair Extensions can be a bride's best friend in your quest for the perfect bridal hair style

TEMPORARY HAIR EXTENSIONS

  • Human Clip-in Hair

Clip in extensions are temporary and just as the name suggests they can be clipped into your own hair whenever you like.They are ideal for your wedding day if you don’t want the commitment of longer-wear fitted extensions.

It’s important to choose the right bridal hair stylist who’s experienced with fitting extensions to avoid the tell-tale bumps in the hair that can be caused by the extension clips.

You need to choose a bridal stylist that can place your clip in extensions strategically, just where you need them for your individual bridal style, to create length and thickness that looks natural.

You need to match your clip in hair extensions to your own natural hair shade. If you are looking to change colour then do so before you purchase your clip in extensions in order to get a true match.

Curled and waved styles are perfect for blending your clip in extensions with your natural hair and look beautiful on your wedding day.

Coco Bella Bride offers you a bespoke and couture range of clip in extensions that are individually tailored to your natural hair and your bridal hair style for your special day.

 

  • Synthetic Hair

There are more affordable synthetic options but you have to choose carefully as most do not tolerate heated styling over 120 degrees.

Synthetic hair tends to be the more detectable and can sometimes be difficult to blend with your natural hair.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.

SEMI- PERMANENT HAIR EXTENSIONS

Semi permanent hair extensions are more discreet and virtually undetectable, long-lasting and can be styled just like your own natural hair.

Semi-permanent hair extensions are applied to your own hair ‘strand by strand’ and last for many months with the right  aftercare. They give you endless choice when choosing your perfect bridal style for your wedding day.

NEVER skimp on the quality of hair you buy or the fee for an experienced professional to fit your hair extensions.

ALWAYS have a consultation to decide which method of application is best for your hair type and lifestyle.

Do your research as there are an awful lot of people out there who are not qualified hairdressers and have taken a one day course and are advertising their ‘services’ – you want to avoid them at all costs!

Hair Extensions give you extra length, fullness and volume for your wedding day

Hair Extensions give you extra length, fullness and volume for the perfect bridal style on your wedding day

When should I have my semi-permanent wedding hair extensions fitted?

Ideally 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding day.

This will also give you time to get used to wearing them and caring for them

If you are planning to have colour make sure you have that done first so that your hair extension specialist can do a perfect colour match for your.

Extensions do take extra effort but Coco Bella Hair extensions will last up to 8 months with the right products and maintenance. And you will get a tailored plan for aftercare from Coco Bella with everything you need to keep your hair looking fabulous during your honeymoon and long after.

How much will it cost?

The price will depend upon the amount and length of hair extensions you will need to create your bridal hair style.  We will create a bespoke plan for you with a tailored guide to best type of extensions for you so you can have the beautiful bridal hair style of your dreams on your wedding day.

10 TOP TIPS: How to Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Hair and Makeup Trial

wedding-hair-and-makeup-trial

10 Top Tips: How to Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Hair and Makeup Trial.

On your wedding day your hair and makeup are just as important as your dress. Get it wrong and it can ruin photographs you’ll have for a lifetime.

That’s why its essential to have a hair and makeup trial – otherwise you’re playing Russian roulette with the way you will look on the day.

10 Top Tips: How to Get the Most Out of Your Hair and Makeup Trial

1.Find your inspiration

Gather images of your favourite looks that inspire you. Find hairstyles you like and makeup colours you are drawn to. Then create a ‘mood board’ for your perfect style – Pintrest is perfect for this.

Visuals are a great guide for your Hair and Makeup stylist. They help you share your vision and your personal style. Just remember they are for inspiration. You are unique and you’re not trying to look like your favourite celebrity. Instead this is part of the collaboration between the bride and Coco Bella, to create the perfect look for you.

2 . Get great skincare advice

Don’t be afraid to share your skin care concerns with us. If you have a tendency to breakouts or an oily T-zone let us know. We can work with you to advise you on the perfect skincare regime. Working months in advance we can help you achieve glowing radiant skin so you look flawless on your wedding day.

3.Keep an open mind

Coco Bella are experts and will be able to create a look for your features that you may have never experienced before. It’s not about going crazy – you will still look like you – but just the best possible version of you. Be willing to trust and try something new.

4.Buy your dress first

The style and cut of your dress will have a huge impact on your makeup and especially the hair design you choose. Your hair and makeup need to complete your look in perfect harmony with your dress.

You will probably want to show off a wedding dress with a low back in which case an up-do would be perfect to showcase your dress. The style of your dress will also influence how formal or relaxed the hairstyle – whether you choose soft romantic curls, or modern textured braids or a timeless, classic chignon.

hair-accessories

Your wedding dress and choice of accessories and jewellery will influence your hairstyle on your special day

 

5. Choose your bridal hair accessories

Ideally you would have chosen your hair accessories before your trial. This is especially important if you choose to wear a veil as your hair style will need to incorporate your chosen veil.  Or you can also try some couture hair accessories with us at Coco Bella. This will allow you to try different looks to see what really suits you and works with your style and theme on your wedding day.

6. Don’t confuse ‘natural’ with ‘no makeup’

This is not an everyday look nor is it a evening look, it’s your wedding day. When a bride wants to look natural she wants to look like the best version of herself. So you need to avoid extremes- too little can be as bad as too much. Wear too little and sometimes you can ‘disappear’ when you put on your wedding dress. Your makeup should define your features and make you look radiant without ever overpowering you.

7. Fake it till you make it

If you dream of lustrous, long romantic curls on your wedding day but your hair is wispy fine, then there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help. Many brides choose to opt for discreet extensions to give them the longer, thicker hair they want for their special day.

At Coco Bella Bride we offer professional advice on the hair extension type that is perfect for you. We also fit and blend them naturally with your own hair, either for up to six months or temporarily just for your wedding day.

8. Be Selfish

This is your time. Ideally it should just be you and your hair and makeup stylist. Too many voices  can get confusing, especially if you have a very opinionated member in your bridal party. If you must have someone with you then have a trusted friend who ideally arrives towards the end of your personal time with Coco Bella. You want all the focus to be on you so you will be completely confident in your final look.

Wearing a veil like this one from the fabulous Halfpenny London will be a big factor in choosing your wedding hairstyle.

Wearing a veil like this one from the fabulous Halfpenny London will be a big factor in choosing your wedding hairstyle.

9. Get Flawless with Airbrush

Airbrush makeup is the secret weapon of film and television makeup artists, because it lasts all day and looks flawless on your skin. If  you choose the airbrush package with Coco Bella your makeup will stay in place all day. You can even sleep in it and it will remain almost intact until the next day.

10.Talk to us

The more you communicate the better the end result. Feedback is good! Don’t be afraid to say what you do and don’t like. We can always tweak things to change it to a look you are happy with. Our priority is to ensure you love how you look on your special day.

TOP BRIDAL HAIR TIPS

  • Don’t leave your Bridal Hair Styling Trial to the last minute.

Appointments fill up fast especially during the summer months. You want to make sure you leave enough time to get your hair looking fabulous in the run up to your wedding.

 

  • Don’t opt for a high trend style that doesn’t reflect the real you.

The last thing you want is HAIR REGRET on you wedding day. By all means don’t be afraid to experiment but not the week before your big day! Those wedding photos will be with you for the rest of your life – make sure you love the way you look before you commit to a drastic cut. You want to look like the best version of yourself on your wedding day.

And your husband or wife to be should still recognise you as you walk towards them!

 

  • Regular, long term treatments are essential to get your hair in peak condition.

If you want gorgeous, glossy hair for your special day then you need to start taking care of it now. Invest in quality products that are tailored precisely to your hair type that will deliver the results you want. It really is worth the investment in professional products that will do wonders for your hair condition as well as making blow drying and styling easier for you.

  • No last minute colour changes

Never opt for a dramatic colour change at the last minute before your wedding. If you hate it you will regret it and it will ruin your day. Instead start experimenting EARLY with colour. You CAN go from dark to blonde if your heart desires – just do it the right way with a professional and with care for your hair condition along the way.

You can have the bridal hair style of your dreams with Coco Bella Bride and with plenty of planning and our professional hair care.
