Winner of the Stylist of the Year category at the Black Beauty/WAHL awards, Errol knows his stuff when it comes to photographic work and editorial hair. He has also appeared on GMTV, This Morning and 10 Years Younger to dish his expert advice on hair trends.
'There’s lots of knots around — think ballerina knots placed high and low. Depending on how much hair you want to display, you can wave some of it rather than making it really sleek. Bridal hair should be more romantic and soft. There’s definitely a lot of red carpet influence; glitter, hair combs, a huge amount of false hairpieces and ponytails. Brides are getting much more adventurous with add-ins, but the rule of the game is to make sure it’s a perfect match to the hair. Don’t do it if you’re unsure about it.’
Senior educator at Francesco Group Academy, Michelle won the title Afro Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards 2009. She recently styled the manes of models at the Hurricane Hair Show produced by Avlon Europe.
’It’s important to show your hairstylist the type of dress and headwear that you'll be wearing as this can influence your hairstyle. Try not to over complicate your hair, and remember, simple is beautiful. You need to feel comfortable with your look because you’ll be wearing it all day and in to the night.’
With over 15 years of hairdressing experience, George recently won Bridal Stylist of the Year 2009 at the Black Beauty/WAHL awards. He owns his salon with his wife Apple, who has collated a multitude of awards too.
‘Always have a couple of trial runs of the style that is going to be created on the day. Your stylist should be able to guide you on what will suit your face shape and features. Current bridal trends are very soft and simple. Go for natural looks that can be curly or shaped into soft, feminine updos.’
Not afraid to setting the bar high, Junior Green has won Bridal Stylist of the Year at the Black Beauty/WAHL awards. His salon is based in Knightsbridge, London.
‘To achieve a great bridal look, visit a stylist at least six months before the wedding to get your hair in tip-top condition for the big day. Ask your stylist to set you a fortnightly treatment regime alternating between moisturising and protein conditioners. Steadily over time the health of your hair will improve and be strong enough to withstand heat and chemical styling.’
Errol loves using the Racoon International Extension range. The Afro Weft is specifically designed to match the texture of afro hair and comes with a micro thin weft so the join is seamless and undetectable.
The Racoon Clix Clip-in Extensions offers a quick solution to instant length and temporary style. But best of all, the pliable comb grips makes it easy for you to attach it yourself.
