MEET ADRIANA HERRAN Based in the beautiful county of Kent, I’ve been weaving my magic in the world of beauty for the past nine years. I've had the honour of being involved in prestigious fashion weeks, captivating commercial campaigns, and even working my magic on the faces of celebrities and influencers. My real passion lies in the enchanting world of bridal beauty. There’s something truly magical about it that fills my heart with joy. Helping my stunning brides discover their dreamy look for their big day is a privilege like no other. ADRIANA'S SIGNATURE LOOK I love to enhance the natural beauty my brides are born with. I’m all about beautiful skin and well enhanced eyes. I pride myself on bringing out your inner beauty and confidence allowing you to shine on one of the most important days of your life. WORDS OF WISDOM Start preparing for your big day beauty well in advance, don’t leave everything to the last minute. Create a simple skincare routine that helps your skin look its best before the wedding, this is the key to achieving that flawless look you’re dreaming of. 2024 TRENDS Skin should look like skin. The trend is now natural is better with no heavy foundations or contour. MEET ASHLEIGH BUNTING I'm 36 years old and a mum to three children. I’ve been working in the hair industry since I left school, but my real love for bridal hairstyling came a little later. Life is pretty hectic, so when I get time off, I like to just chill, usually with a gin or two! ASHLEIGH'S SIGNATURE LOOK My signature look is very boho, with lots of loose curls and texture. I love to create messy buns. WORDS OF WISDOM Avoid getting a hair cut immediately before your big day, especially if you’re having a drastic change. Have it done a couple of weeks beforehand to give it time to settle in and to make sure you’re comfortable with how it looks and feels. I’d also recommend weekly treatments in the months leading up to the wedding to ensure your hair is in the best health. Healthy hair is beautiful hair! 2024 TRENDS Braids are going to be big next year, which works perfectly with my style. I love a fishtail braid! GET IN TOUCH GET IN TOUCH LOOKING YOUR BEST 95
