Wedding Belles

We thought this week we would show you what we do for fun after work!  The Salon's are often approached by local causes and charities to see what we can donate to help raise funds for some fantastic causes,  our Ruthin Salon is nestled in the heart of the Vale of Clwyd in North Wales, and we were approached by one of our long standing Guests to see if we could help towards raising funds to bring the Eisteddfod to Denbigh in 2013.

With commitments to our Guests made for 2012, one thing our Staff Members have committed to give back to their community is some time, to help local causes, places, and people.

The Event organised was 'Wedding Dresses through the Decades' and we were approached to do the hair for the event.  This gave some stylists a fantastic opportunity to show off their skills, with wedding hair and styles ranging all the way from Medieval to Millenium!

With eccentric hair up's and styling to die for, Ruthin Castle hosted the Wedding Dress Show which was sold out before the tickets even got advertised!  Students from Ysgol Brynhyfryd, and local ladies all pulled together to help the Show come together.  Meanwhile backstage we had a chance to have a peek at some of the dresses and we could not believe the quality of what was going to go out on the catwalk that evening!  The dresses were stunning, ranging from Edwardian Quill dressed Hats with high neck dresses to understated but glamorous Navy Blue 1940's knee length dresses with matching veils.  The event sold out and raised literally thousands of pounds for a fantastic event!

We thought we would show some pics of our work backstage and show you all the hard work that goes into making the people look as amazing as the dresses!  Enjoy
