Following on from the previous success of the No.3 Hairdressing’s ‘All About the Bride’, they’re at it again. That’s right, not content with throwing a stylish event for brides that offers an alternative to wedding fairs, No.3 Hairdressing keep doing it.
As I’ve said before, I love this concept of inspiring brides in an intimate setting to give advice from the experts. With No.3 Hairdressing being based in Bath the next ‘All About the Bride’ on the 26 March will be a Bath in Fashion event, featuring a catwalk show giving a first peak at Jessica Charleston’s 2016 couture wedding dress collection.
The models will be styled to embody the various personas a bride might look to create, from whimsical beauty to sleek city glamour.
Of course there will be practical hair consultations by the bridal style tem at No.3 Hairdressing but if you make it down to the event then you will also experience makeup tuition from Eleanor Nancy and award-winning Katy Pheiffer, statement headwear from Carrie Jenkinson, photo and video advice from Andrea Pennington and Tom Awson. And of course dress inspiration from Jessica Charleston. All to a backdrop of live music – exciting.
The event is free to attend but spaces are limited so make sure that you register.
