Bridal Hair and Makeup Sheffield

Bridal Hair and Makeup Sheffield by Professional © Katy Straw Artist.

This kind of hairstyle is easy to do. Result? Natural and beautiful. For Gabriela’s hair colour was used Professional Hair Colour L’Oréal Majirel number 7.44 and number 7.45 with six percent of L’Oréal peroxide.

As a first, I did smooth blow dry with round brush for a better volume. Into wet hair I added a little drop of CHI Silk Infusion. This product is more then amazing and I’m using it all the time. Then I’ve used curler and did tiny curls, which I brushed just with my fingers untill we’ve got the style what we wanted. You can add any kind of bridal accessories you like.

Brown smoky eyes with black eye shadows used as a eyeliner. For a flawless result of bridal makeup I have used Vitalumiere Aqua by CHANEL, secured with loose powder by MAC. With a touch of rosy cheeks brought into this makeup natural look. Instead of coloured lipsticks, we have used colourless lipgloss by GOSH.

For bride is this the best way how you can find good makeup artist who will suit you and also make you feel comfortable with results when your big day comes. In my opinion, this is more than important. Important to match her face skin tone to her neck or chest skin tone. Good advice is to sit down with your client and speak about her face. What she is thinking about her face, what is she doing for cleaning and how is she looking after her face. Give your client the best advice to avoid any problems.

Well, now is the right time to find your wedding photographer, hairstylist and makeup artist.

First of all.. Sometimes makeup artists or hairstylists are already fully booked year ahead. So, maybe is better to start looking for a bit earlier. Try to find makeup artist or hairstylist in your area. Do not worry if you can not find any. Most of them do not mind to travel. Then, find them portfolio. Ask them, with what kind of brand of cosmetics are they working. In my opinion, hairstylists or makeup artists should be working with professional brands only. If you like them portfolio, ask for appointment with trial makeup or hair. After the hair or makeup trial, take a picture of it and show it to your friends. If you like the result and you are on one hundred sure about it, book your day with the artist. In my opinion is good to make an another appointment with your makeup artist a few days or weeks before your wedding. Maybe you like your eye shadows or whole look, but do not forget, that your skin of your face is changing according to seasons. It means, that for example you had your appointment with makeup artist in December, when your face might be more sensitive and dry because of winter weather and your wedding is in summer. It means, that your face might be more oily because of sun or other factors then in December. Therefore is better to book an another appointment and try makeup foundation again. Go out with it and wear it for a while. Then, you will see if the makeup is good for your skin or not. You do not want your face to look shiny on wedding pictures. You will not have a time to powder your face all day long, just because your makeup artist did not choose a right foundation for you.


You do not want your face to look shiny on wedding pictures. You will not have a time to powder your face all day long, just because your makeup artist did not choose the right foundation for your face. Do not forget, that everything will be captured by photographer. As a every bride, also you want to look and feel special. Therefore it's very important to get the best result of your wedding makeup.

Good makeup, good photos, good photos, happy bride!


I personally recommend put extra care into bridal hairstyle too. My favourite professional hair care products are by L'oreal Professionnel, Matrix Biolage, CHI. If you prefer more nature way, definitely try organic coconut oil. Big volume, curls or hair pined up, whatever you like. But, do not forget to match your dress and accessories with your hair.
