Full Description
Hello, my name is Katie-Jane Whitlock and I set up my bridal hair business 4 years ago as a little part-time job around my two kids. This then turned into a full time career and my dream job, something I had spent many years trying to find. The last 4 years have been a whirlwind and I have been really lucky to have worked on TV sets such as 'Downton Abbey' and 'The Vikings'. I have also been a regional finalist for the National Wedding Awards 2016 and 2017. I absolutely love what I do and I believe this has helped me achieve the things I have so far. My style is very bohemian but I love creating all styles and am always looking at new ways to create a brides perfect look. Many of my brides have kindly told me that it's like having an old friend style their hair and this is something I hold close to my heart. I always want my brides to feel as relaxed as they can on their wedding day, feel confident and have fun. I work really hard with every one of my brides to achieve their perfect look, from the moment they get in touch to the moment I say goodbye. I absolutely adore hairstyles which sit and flow naturally but will stay put until the early hours. I hope that I can offer brides a unique look and a really fun and friendly service.

Katie-Jane, is charismatic, enthusiastic and very approachable. Most importantly, she is incredibly talented. Her style is unique and in my opinion, faultless!! I am very fussy about my hair and chose to have 2 trials with her before the big day so we could work through my ideas and she managed to bring them to life. My hair decided to do what it wanted on the day, but she kept calm and made it work perfectly! She also did a fantastic job with the bridesmaids and made us all feel special!

When I first started looking for a hairstylist for my...
When I first started looking for a hairstylist for my wedding I was growing out a pixie hairstyle. Katie-Jane advised me of what to do, when to have it cut and was realistic with me about how to achieve the look I was after. I had a few mini meltdowns during the growing out period and she was always on hand to advise. On the day she styled mine and my bridesmaids hair exactly as I had envisaged. She was brilliant company to have around on the morning too as she was so relaxed and down to earth.

I genuinely cannot fault Katie-Jane. I am incredibly indecisive and even on the morning of the wedding threw a curve-ball with what I wanted. Katie-Jane was not concerned at all and just listened to me ramble on before totally just getting what I wanted. I couldn't have described what she ended up doing and I'm so thrilled. She was also so personable and lovely to have around on that morning as she really helped put me at ease. I wish her every success as she truly is a star at whats she does!

Katie-Jane was amazing. Our hair looked fantastic and everyone commented on how nice it was. She was profession but very friendly and really put me at ease as I was very nervous. She understood exactly what I wanted. She was friendly, helpful and a good ear. Couldn't have asked for anyone better.

Katie Jane completely listened and understood my vision. She was so helpful, kind and thoughtful, I felt so at ease in her hands. The style she created was exactly as I had hoped for and her experience helped guide what would look best for me. I was thrilled with my hair on the day. She was also incredibly kind and understanding when styling my bridesmaids, one of whom had a very sensitive scalp. She was very careful and and helped us all to feel relaxed and in good hands. Thank you!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

In regards to a hair wedding tip, go with recommendations and use the trial as a way to try every look until you find your perfect one.

My friend had a broach from her gran and I asked if we could use it in her hair as a hair accessory. It looked stunning and was also really personal to her.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial contact and gathering of details, a holding deposit invoice gets sent out and a trial is booked. An email consultation is carried out prior to the trial discussing styles and sharing ideas and images. The trial then takes place. Images from the trial are sent out and the style is discussed and confirmed. A schedule is made and a further invoice with all costings is sent out. Contact is continued up until the big day itself. The week before the big day the schedule is confirmed. On the big day I will stay throughout the schedule and at the end until I am no longer needed.

Creating amazing hairstyles and meeting new people. I also feel tremendously proud to be included in the most important morning of their life!

I make them laugh and I keep calm myself. Preparation is key but above all just have fun.

Great hair and makeup will last. Avoid vigorous dancing and if you do, don't post any pictures up of your hair and makeup after 8pm :)
