Hair Hostess UK were voted the West Midlands best wedding hair stylists at The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards.

2015 has been a fantastic year at Hair Hostess, winning the Best Business in conjunction with Solihull News and The Forest of Arden in September last year, 2015 started positively I knew I was on the right track.

Bookings more than doubled and I had to increase my team we are now at 16 team members covering The West Midlands.

Much to my surprise I was nominated by a bridal shop Bea’s Bridal for The Wedding Industry Awards best bridal hair stylist. Last year was our first year to be shortlisted. Little did I know that this year I would bring that trophy home to Solihull!

I was delighted to be nominated and brides flooded in their votes and comments. All I had to do was wait, keep doing what I do best and show up on the awards night!

The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards ceremony for the West Midlands was held at the amazing Stanbrook Abbey Hotel on the 18 November.

Attended by the who’s who of wedding suppliers it was a night to remember for everybody. The Hair Hostess UK team was out in full force as Fay took 10 of her ‘Hostesses’ as an early Xmas present. We were greeted upon arrival by the Beetlejuice Cocktail Bar, serving their amazing refreshments from the back of a VW Campervan. So cool!

Drink in hand, there was then an opportunity for mingling and networking with some of the finest wedding suppliers in the region. We spent some time with the lovely people from Guides for Brides who also happen to be judging the “Best Website’ award this year.

What a night we had as they called the award winners out, I could feel the anxiety building. What had my brides said? How did they score me? Then they said it… I heard Hair Hostess… I looked around… what me?? Wow! What a feeling and I believe it will stay with me forever. All that hard work had paid off. I love my brides and I go above and beyond for them.

This was exactly what the judge said in his announcement, “this person went above and beyond”

I won’t go into detail as, what happens in the bridal prep room stays in the bridal prep room! It’s certainly not just all about hair. I am the full package.
