Alexandra here from Wimbledon, just thought I’d let you all know about my manic day at a wedding shoot for designer Shana Melville. We had a great time on location and the models were a real hoot to work with, plus can you imagine spending all day wearing fabulous frocks – it’s a hard life being a model sometimes?! It was fun styling the models hair and adding various finishing touches such as beautiful vintage rose hair pieces to give the look a slight twist. We spent hours on the shoot trying to get the shots right whilst ensuring the hair worked with the dress as it had to be absolutely perfect to compliment Shana Melville’s wedding dresses.

Every once in a while we get a bride in the salon and we always love the opportunity to style their hair to give a gorgeous glamorous look so the shoot was really nice as it enabled us to be creative and create sensational styles.

Check out the pictures as you’re getting a sneak preview to Shana Melville’s new seasonal wedding dresses, so if you want any more information or to contact her then please visit:

Again, if any of you have any wedding hair queries then do let me know as we’re full of ideas! xxx


Aaron running through ideas with Meg and DelIt’s Aaron here (pictured with Del from Hair and a reader from Hair magazine), I’m the Assistant Art Director at John Carne Hairdressing. Just wanted to keep you in the loop with a sneak preview of some shots from our Hair Magazine shoot! We had a fun filled day on shoot in Old Street where we gave three readers a fabulous makeover. Stewart, Jodie & Billie helped me on hair whilst I also directed. It was nice touching base with Del and Charley from Hair magazine, and working together as a team to discuss hairstyles and being creative which is what we love doing most as hairstylists! The lovely Lindsay Poole did the girls makeup whilst we set to work to transform the readers luscious locks from drab to fab!

  • Lizzie was going travelling so wanted something simple yet stunning to leave her looking refreshed for her future challenges so we added some layers for added volume.

  • Meg had lovely long blonde locks so we ran a mix of tones through her hair to give brighten it up whilst highlighting her facial features.

  • Sam had a lot of hair and wanted a Megan Fox look, which worked wonders. Check out the January issue of Hair magazine to see the final results!

Then the day finished off with a glass of champers for a great team effort…. before heading back to Guildford.
