Joshua's expertise means he also trains fellow hair stylists on the speciality that is bridal hair either on location or at the exclusive JA St John's Wood Salon. He is also one of the first to know about new bridal hair trends and fashions. Joshua also understands the power of accessorising, often adding hair-pieces to achieve a perfect finished look.
"I work with over 30 brides a year, often travelling the world to attend to my clients and each one of them has their own individual style, often dependent on their dress and theme of the wedding. I also incorporate current seasonal trends and accessories, whilst still maintaining that personal touch."
What sets Josh apart from the bridal hair crowd is his love of creating new, fresh looks which can be adapted to suit each client's tastes. He is highly skilled at working with both long and shorter hair and often adds hair pieces for brides who want extra volume or length. For those who want a beautifully distinct look he recommends jazzing up the hair with vintage accessories and dainty sparkling hair jewels. As well as these eye-catching hair adornments a bride can also achieve dramatic looks using flowers, Swarovski crystals or glittering slides to compliment a wedding day theme. Says Josh:
One of Joshua's most favourite Bridal hair creations was on his client Katie who had her fabulous wedding at the Dorchester Hotel in London. He worked closely with Elizabeth Emanuel (Princess Diana's Wedding dress designer) and Maggie Hunt (the famous celebrity make-up artist) to achieve the perfect look to compliment her spectacular dress.
Free consultations are available with Joshua at the salon. 1½ hour Wedding trial appointment is £70.00.
