We’ve all been in salons while a bride-to-be has been having a hair or make-up trial for her wedding, but that’s set to be a thing of the past thanks to a new styling service from Lancashire-based Flossy and Leigh.

The winners of The Wedding Industry Award for best make-up artists in the north west in 2013 and who went on to win the national Wedding Industry Award for 2014, decided to build on their success and create a completely private bridal experience, thought to be unlike any other in the UK, exclusively for the use of their brides during their initial consultation trial.

This bridal styling studio, conveniently located just off the M65, celebrates the duo’s unique style and reflects their love of the bridal world.

Everything featured within the styling studio is completely bespoke or reclaimed, and not available on the high street. Features include beloved reclaimed antique Victorian theatre seats, where clients have their pre-consultation meeting where they go through wedding logistics for the morning and discuss themes and ideas. There’s also an LED screen, mounted within a hearty rustic bespoke easel frame, which constantly rotates images of some of Flossy and Leigh’s favourite looks from past brides. There is reclaimed old industrial lighting suspended over the hair stations, juxtaposed with the softer glow of the Hollywood-style dressing room lighting over in the make-up section. And, to top it off there is an old school bench situated below the window, so that excited mothers and bridesmaids can offer advice from the sidelines, when accompanying the bride on her trial. However, one of the pair’s favourite features is the old colonial giant birdhouse, filled with twinkling bespoke bridal accessories created by their friend Ann McKavney at the house of Eleventh Heaven, exclusively for Flossy and Leigh. They do not sell these pieces, but use them to help mould the styling process, and advise the bride upon what sort of accessories her style will require. There is also a bridal veil to help this styling process as it reaches its finalé.

Flossy and Leigh said: “It’s all about exclusivity and privacy. Because we strive to provide each and every bride with a completely private and personal experience, we do not allow any other bridal parties in at the same time as each other.

“Our appointments are Monday to Thursday at either 10am or 2pm, and consultations last around three to three and a half hours.”
