In this line of work, I’m lucky to have a little black book crammed with the very best suppliers the region has to offer.
I figured keeping that to myself is a little selfish, so you’ll spot our supplier feature section on the homepage which will give a little spotlight on some awesome suppliers you won’t go wrong with.
Today we’re chatting with the lovelies at Number 8 Hairdressing in Truro.
These guys seriously know their stuff, so if you’re after luscious locks for the big day, go look ’em up.
Over to the Number 8 gang…
Tell us a bit about what you do…
Number 8 Hairdressing is proud to be considered one of the leading hairstylists in Cornwall for weddings.
Whatever hairstyle you choose, be that romantic loose waves or a vintage up-do and everything in-between, our expert stylists will meet with you beforehand to design your hair to be as individual as you are.
All of our bridal hair packages are completely bespoke and tailored to your special day. We just love creating great hair!
What’s your favourite part of the job?
Being part of peoples wedding mornings, it’s so special to see a bride enjoy her morning with her closest friends and family, getting those nervous excited butterflies right before everything comes together.
Making anyone feel extra beautiful is an incredible part of the job and although we leave them before the celebrations get underway, I always feel happy that whole day thinking of how a new marriage is about to start and we’ve been there to enjoy a part of it with them.
What makes Number 8 special?
We are as organised as anyone could be, so we will make a timetable for the morning to ensure everything runs perfectly to time and smoothly alongside make-up artists.
We offer a bridal brochure to all brides with loads of handy tips from when to have your hair cut and coloured to honeymoon styling ideas and help.
Lots of brides ask how to look after their hair before the wedding so it’s in the best possible condition for the day, and we always recommend professional shampoo and conditioner (and if possible salon prescribed treatments). It’s amazing how having fabulous conditioned hair can make bridal hairstyles look so much better.
I think the fact that we have 6 bridal hairstylists means we can offer a diversity of styles to all brides. Also, we are able to accommodate the larger bridal parties so there is no need to get up at silly o’clock to start styling hair – if you want us to be with you for only an hour we can make that happen!
Enjoying breakfast on the morning before the suppliers descend on you I think is quite important, so we try not to impose on people for longer than needed and that way we find everything is much more relaxed and less stressful.
Also offering our bridal brochure full of everything brides might want to know is quite helpful and means we answer most questions but if not we are always at the end of an email or phone.
