Full Description
Hello, my name is Sarah and my business is called Pin Up Curl. I've had a passion for vintage hairstyles for many years, and love to share that passion with the brides I style. Whether it's just a hint of an era, or period perfect, I specialise in the 20s to the 60s. Think fingerwaves, rolls and curls, Hollywood waves and beehives. I'm based in Derby, and cover all areas of the East and West Midlands. I will come to your getting ready venue on the day of your wedding and help make your experience one to remember. I also add a calming influence I've been told! I'll even stay to help you into your dress, fasten your shoes and dry off your bouquet. I always recommend a trial before your day, at least 2 months before. That way I can get to know your hair, see what suits you, decide on timings and we can get to know each other. And with all of that I design and make hair accessories. You can have the whole package - hair for you and your party, with bespoke handmade accessories. I work with you from the first consultation to the final piece to create a unique piece just for you.

My hairdo made me feel a million dollars
A massive thank you from the bottom of my heart for your talents and service on my wedding morning. My hairdo made me feel a million dollars, and amazingly for a style worn down it stayed in place until the party ended at midnight. In fact, it still looked great as we flew out on our honeymoon the next day! You really nailed what I wanted, and it elevated the whole look. My sister loved hers too, she looked so classy and elegant. A huge additional thank you for your calm energy; the care and kindness you showed me on the wedding morning, for getting my sister and I into our dresses, and for reminding me to breathe slow. You went above and beyond and took so much stress off us. 5 stars! *****

My hair looked the best it has ever been on my wed
Sarah did an absolutely amazing job on my hair and my 2 adult bridesmaids hair for my recent wedding. I knew from the moment I got engaged that I wanted Sarah for my hair as I'd been following her for a while and was in love with the vintage waves that she does and I knew I could not trust anyone else to do them as well! My hair looked the best it has ever been on my wedding day and exactly how I had pictured it so thank you so, so much. You really were a huge part in helping me feel like a million dollars on the day. I got so many compliments on my hair as did my bridesmaids. We all loved what you did. Thank you again so, so much!

When I was planning my wedding I knew exactly what
When I was planning my wedding I knew exactly what I wanted my hair to be like, because of this I was delighted when I had my trial with Sarah and she understood exactly and brought my idea to life. On the day of the wedding everyone commented on my hair and this has continued when people see the pictures. I had the most wonderful morning of my wedding getting ready , it was so chilled and fun thanks to Sarah and Ms Moo Make Up who make a fantastic team xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

Sam - I have a sentimental attachment to Sams wedding as she's a good friend. We became friends through jive classes and styling her hair. To be asked to style her and her bridal party's hair was an absolute honour. She wanted something 20s inspired, which is one of my favourite eras to style, and we laughed and cried in equal measure.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unique, vintage, glamorous, elegant, bespoke

What about your business are you most proud of?

I have grown it from a glimmer of an idea in my head 6 years ago whilst working full time in a completely different field. Pin Up Curl is now my full time career and I love it. I'm very lucky

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

Book early to avoid disappointment!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A mother of the bride giving her daughter her mothers necklace to wear. I had to look away from such a private and bittersweet moment

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial enquiry we will chat online or by phone about what the bride is looking for, her dress and headpiece, and hair type. We will then book a trial and I will advise if the chosen styles will be right for the bride to be. After the trail we discuss any changes and the rest of the bridal parties hair.. On the day I will arrive at a pre determined time to style everyone, slipping away quietly or giving good luck hugs, whatever the situation demands! Once it is determined that your date is available I take a £50 deposit to secure your date, and taking outstanding payments 2 weeks before the wedding.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping to make many brides very happy

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Be true to yourself. Don't try to look like someone different. Be you.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Reassuring words, telling them that if a certain thing hasn't been done it doesn't matter, everything she needs is right there. Being attentive to her and assessing how she's feeling and adapting any schedules so that she feels calmer. Advising breathing exercises if needed, and sometimes they are! Just being my friendly and bubbly self, and making them feel like they are in good hands.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Any good make up artist and hair stylist will have been a big part of this anyway. Professionally applied make up should stay put, professionally styled hair should withstand all the hugs and dancing during the day. But, to be cliched, beauty really does come from within. The best way to look great all day is smile, be happy, be in love, enjoy every moment.
