In part two of our Planning a Vintage Wedding special we take a look at creating your own vintage look. We caught up with three industry experts who, just like us, love vintage hair and make-up. ALOT!

Christina Jessel, hair and make-up specialist, says “Vintage is very much requested in my work at the moment. Its fun, classic, glamorous and works with all face shapes and hair textures. Adding a beautiful sparkly hair decoration with jewels or an accessory with fine, small feathers really completes the vintage look.

Caroline from Powder and Glow loves recreating vintage make up. “From mastering a 1940’s starlet, a 1950’s siren pout or a 1960’s smokey eye, we can work with you to get the vintage look you want. We also offer personal vintage styling tutorials so you can learn to create the looks yourself”.

Liz Bower from Simply Beautiful Wedding Hair specialises in wedding hair. “It’s fantastic to create a lovely soft, vintage feel, incorportating Marcel waves and twists, finishing beautifully with the most gorgeous hair comb.”

Here’s some inspiration from the ladies!

As we approach summer our resident fashionistas’ latest news is that the bun is making a big comeback.

I have hair I wouldn’t wish on anyone. It’s thick, frizzy and has a mind all of its own. If my house was on fire my GHD’s would be the first thing I saved. So when I heard the news I thought it might be the answer to my morning hair woes. No more messing around trying to tame hair at the crack of dawn, the bun would be my new secret weapon. I cast aside the fear I might end up looking like Mrs Lyons from the Post Office and off I went to buy a bun ring to try it out.

Back home I started with a low ponytail and put the ring over the top. I then used another band to pull hair over the ring and secure it in place. I then pinned up all the loose ends with some grips behind the ring. Voila a bun to behold! Three easy (ish) steps, minimum effort, maximum effect. Ok it wasn’t all that neat and I won’t be winning any style awards just yet, but I did have hair with a bit more attitude than my usual ponytail. I tried out a few sparkly grips and then swapped them for a small rose clip instead. And with loads of comments throughout the day about my new ‘up do’ my bun ring is definitely here to stay.

If you are looking for inspiration for bridal hair then check out our bun inspired board on Pinterest, I guarantee you won’t look like the lady from the Post Office.
