Meet the founder – Hair and Make Up Artist Sam (director stylist)
Inspired by my glamorous mum who had an incredible talent for hair and make up – as a child I could always be found playing with my mum’s ‘beauty box of tricks’. A chance encounter led to part-time hair modelling, then opportunities to train with a top creative hairdressing team. I’ve been lucky enough to pass on my skills and training to hair, make up and media students at Bath college, in addition to working in salons in and around Bath. I’m proud when I bump into ex-students and see how well they’re doing and hear their stories.
In 2015, the Bath Bridal Hair and Make Up brand was born, going from strength to strength. The icing on the cake is the accolade of three wedding industry awards, topped by ‘Bridal hairdresser of the year Bristol and Somerset’ in November 2019. From small beginnings, we’re now a very small but highly talented and experienced team. All of us are dedicated to giving you the best possible service on your day. We’ll create bespoke soft and romantic or killer looks to take you from day to night. Every artist is hand-picked not only for their wedding day skills, but for their calm and friendly demeanour and total reliability.
We’re truly privileged to play such a big part in making brides and their bride tribe look incredible. We work with and are recommended by some of the most amazing and breathtaking venues in and around Bath – see my Venues page for inspiration. Let us help you on your bridal journey – take a look at the portfolio and testimonials for recent weddings, then please feel free to get in touch for an informal chat about what we can do for you.
As another little string to my bow, I like to run one-to-one training or crossover courses teaching bridal styling to aspiring bridal hairdressers or to make up artists wishing to add hair to their skills. There’s hair up and prep training, braiding, and boho hairdressing for anyone from complete beginners to those who’re a little rusty (get in touch for more info on courses).
Behind the scenes, I have two lovely grown-up sons, I love to ride, I dance salsa, bachata and kizomba. Travel is my passion and this has led me to the exciting addition of destination weddings. From a wedding set in an olive grove in The Algarve to French chateau weddings, the world is your oyster.
Please contact me for a chat about your wedding abroad. It could make real sense for you, avoid the worry of language barriers, and may not work out as costly as you think. Please check out my new page www.instagram.com/dordognebridalhair to see what I’ve been up to.
Thanks for reading, hope to meet you soon, Sam x
