Kent Bridal Hair

Is it the royal wedding’s influence? Maybe. Trends in bridal fashion come and go and this time it’s the tiara. There has been a bit of a nod to tiaras towards the end of 2018 and it looks like they will start creeping more into bridal trends for 2019 - except this time, they are big and bold.

Keep the hair’s volume soft and natural. Let the tiara take centre-stage and wear your hair down in soft tumbling curls or waves; a simple up-do like a soft, messy chignon; or with a gorgeous on-trend ponytail. The ponytail is lovely and feminine and you can add some extra interest with twists or braids.

Terri Gilham at Kent Bridal Hair is always at the forefront of bridal trends and has gained a strong reputation for creating beautiful bridal hair.

Beautique By Riley, Maidstone

The smokey eye has been given an update for 2019, with metallics being the main act and a blurred wing as the headliner of the day for a smudged effect. Choose a silver metallic eyeshadow for your bridal make-up in 2019 to bring a magical sparkle to your big day. The cool tones of the eyeshadow or silver glitter gives the effect of a luminous haze around your eye in photographs and will enhance the colour of your eyes and brighten the inner corner to give a wider and fresher look.

The team at Beautique By Riley know all the trends and all the staple go-to products for brides, both modern and traditional. The salon is in the heart of Maidstone town centre with private entrance and tranquil treatment rooms. Book yourself in for head to toe bridal beauty to help you prepare for your most special day.

Stephanie Emma Make Up Artist

"A bridal trend that will never fade is the fresh faced bride. This look can be achieved with a ‘bridal glow’. You can create this look in many ways such as a moisturising foundation to give a dewy finish to the skin. Or, more recently popular, is by adding that extra highlight to certain areas such as the inner corner of the eye, brow bone and softly on the top of your cheekbones.

"With many years of experience as a make-up artist, I devote my skills to every individual in finding that perfect bridal look. This gives my brides the confidence they want on their big day."

Jennifer Graves Hair

"This style is perfect for the modern bride. My brides are loving a loose, undone style this year. This is a modern take on a classic style which will carry on. This specific creation boasts romance but is also so versatile with the changing seasons. I start by doing beautiful bouncy curls, adding texture spray and then softly creating this gorgeous undone bun up-do. 

"I specialise in bridal and occasion hair and I am mostly self taught, with my business being just over three years old. I love to be creative and bring fresh looks to every wedding season I do whether that be in hair or beauty. It is a massive passion and honour of mine to be such a big part of getting a bride ready for her special day."

Aston's Make Up and Beauty

"Skin is a huge reflection of you, and for years we have covered up our skin and hidden away. As part of my job, I love creating something beautiful and enhancing the beauty in my brides. Part of this is creating beautiful flawless skin that looks and feels like your skin.

"From my knowledge of skin and make-up in the beauty industry for the past eight years as well as my experience working in TV, I have learnt to understand and work with the skin. Your skin says a lot about you and how you take care of yourself, so look after your skin and your skin will look after you."

Kirsten Hair and Make Up

"Hairstyles with lots of texture were very popular in 2018 and I’m sure this trend will continue for brides in 2019. Textured and relaxed hair-dos are very pretty and versatile because you can add different twists, plaits or even fishtail braids. To finish the hairstyles off I always love adding some pretty flowers, sparkling hair ornaments or a veil.

"With my varied experience working in salons, theatre, film and TV, I am able to create a bespoke and flawless hair and make-up look to make you feel beautiful and special on your wedding day."

MUA Billie

"A couple of years ago, my brides opted for a matte dark, browner nude on the lips. However, fast forward to 2018 and the classic shiny pink nude is trending having made a popular comeback. It’s an easy natural colour which adds that timeless beauty, perfect for everyone. I usually mix lipsticks because each lipstick tone should complement the bride and their tones too, plus I love playing around and mixing colours... it’s the best. 

"After being my family and friends' make-up artist, I qualified from The London School of Make-up. I then moved to Ibiza, working as a bridal make-up artist. Taking my skills further, I trained in airbrushing. I love animals so all the products I use are cruelty-free. I try to use natural products where I can as well as making sure they are paraben-free and free of other nasties."
