I initially contacted Tori one panicked Saturday morning, while rather frantically Googling 'wedding hairdressers Hampshire' after my usual hairdresser had let me know she wasn't going to be able to help on my big day. Tori's was the first response I received and immediately I knew she was the hairdresser for me - her bubbly personality exuded from her email response whilst simultaneously providing all the practical finer details (costing, advice, her studio location etc.) I needed to reassure me that we'd be a good fit. On the run up to my trial we emailed ideas back and forth, meaning I felt like she was an old friend by the time I visited her lovely studio. Tori was so informative and excited in the appointment, looking over pictures of my dress and discussing hair ideas with so much enthusiasm I knew she 'got' me, my style and aspirations for the day. Coincidentally, after revealing my veil mid-way through the appointment she pointed out that she had the exact same one on display behind me as she was a stockist! It actually only ended up taking about half an hour for her to work her magic and create the braid of my wildest Pinterest dreams! Whilst I finished my preparations for the wedding, I was able to sit pretty knowing I was going to be in really safe hands with my hair. Fasting forward to the wedding morning, Tori arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed around 7am ready to tackle my hair along with 4 bridesmaids and my mother-in-law to-be. The way she choreographed us all was a thing of beauty, interweaving building my voluminous braid between the various requests of my bridal party, easing my nerves all the while with her hilarious anecdotes. Curls, beehives, extensions, half-up/half-down styles, flower clips... Tori was completely un-phased showing off her skill with a diverse range of styles to reflect the individual personalities of my nearest and dearest. The icing on the cake was the beautiful flower-piece she completed, using a base the florist made but building it up with even more individual flower clips to make sure it suited my face shape and was the statement I was looking for! I was thrilled with the finished results, am so very grateful to have had Tori involved in my big day and would recommend her talents to anyone in an absolute heartbeat. Thank you Tori!
