Before you go out and have fun this is some inspiration for all u modern brides to be!
Last Sunday Kelly and Samantha did a photo shoot with Photographer Kevin Bridle.
The theme was "Modern bride" , We thought we would change it up as we have been seeing alot of vintage. Kelly created a beautiful bun on Lydia our "bride" and it bit modern hair up on our "bridesmaid" Frances.
Samantha did the makeup on both models, something a little bit more bold.
It was a fun day and a little bit awkward for our models, You would never guess that the bride & groom had never met before this shoot poor Jesse & Lydia.
Watch this space for the photographers pics.

Till next time folks.....

Weddings and winter isn't something you would normally think about.

But here at pure hair we have been.
And we love it!!
Winter makes for amazing photos.
And amazing weddings.
The harsh scenery against the softness of your dress.
The rolling clouds over the rawness of bear branches on trees.

A romantic church filled with warmth as you come in from the cold.
A morning of make up and hair around the fire with a cup of coffee or glass of champagne!

Winter makes the romantic of a wedding day slightly more romantic.

We have wedding madness.
Well, a slight obsession at the very least.

Infact two of our lovely girls, Kelly and Sam are off to do a mid-winter wedding photo shoot on Sunday.
So make sure you pop back to have a... geze at some of our own images from the shoot!!

Till next time, you know the drill
Have a great weekend, from your team here at
