PROFESSIONAL BRIDAL AND OCCASION HAIR STYLIST
My name is Michelle and I'm a professional hair stylist and Mum of two gorgeous children. I am based in Maylandsea, Essex and specialise in bridal, editorial and extension hair styling.
I consider it a privilege to be asked to be a part of someone's big day and love nothing more than to hear about each and every clients special plans - dress, venue, flower arrangements, colour schemes - I love it all!
From as young as I can remember I have had a fascination with hair. As a child I would analyse all different hair styles and try and work out how to recreate them on my Girls World dolls head.
At the age of 15 I started work experience in a local hair salon where my passion developed further (I even started cutting my sisters' hair). So shortly after I left school I decided to train in hair dressing and received my NVQ 1 & 2.
Having always known I would love to do wedding hair, once the kids started school I decided to get really stuck into it with the help of some fantastic people in the industry.
I believe it's always good to learn and I love to update my techniques and skills to move with the current trends. I now have a diploma in hair extension application and long hair techniques with Patrick Cameron (a worldwide leading hair stylist)
I am also very proud of the fact that I have been a finalist in 'The Essex Wedding Award' for the past four years and was also regionally shortlisted in the top 5 hair stylists for the East of England in the '2014 The Wedding industry award' .
When I'm not being a Mum and hair stylist I love to paint. I also live for our annual family holiday.
