Bear Of Rodborough Cotswolds Wedding

I was styling hair for Catherine's wedding today at the Bear of Rodborough hotel near Stroud . Situated on the National Trust Rodborough Common this 17th Century coaching inn offers a stunning location for a wedding.
I was styling hair for quite a few members of the wedding party and was kept busy all morning.
As the make-up artist arrived and started to work on the wedding party I set to work styling Catherine's hair. I hadn't been able to conduct a trial for Catherine as she lives in Australia and she wasn't able to get over to see me before the wedding day. Catherine and I had spoken on the phone and come up with an idea of how she wanted her hair and she had bought hair extensions for me to add to her hair to enable us to create an elegant vintage feel up do.

The hair extensions were different colours to create a more natural look so by parting the hair at the back and fixing the hair extensions into place it added lots of extra length and body to the hair to enable me to create a fantastic entwined chignon hairstyle.

Once I'd fixed the hair into place you couldn't tell the difference between Catherine's natural hair and the extensions and we created a style that wouldn't have been possible with just the natural hair.

I finished the style by fixing silk rose hair pieces into the crown area of the style. Catherine looked amazing!
