Ibiza Brides 2017

The wedding of Charlotte was a beautiful wedding which took place at the stunning Elixlir .

A wedding is always a special day but here in Ibiza its extra special, the sun shines everyone of your guests in holiday mode. What more do you want.. Most weddings are held in the afternoon the bridal preparation is very relaxed and easy going. We  normally start around mid day, as most weddings are from 3pm onwards here in Ibiza.

Charlotte and the girls are a gorgeous group of ladies. So it wasn’t difficult to enhance their beauty. Charlotte had been to my salon in the UK for a bridal consultation as belive it or not her dad lives in the same town (small world). We discussed her desired hair look and overall look for her wedding and her bridesmaids.

Charlotte was happy for her bridesmaids to have their hair how they wanted as long as it blended with the overall theme of the wedding. What she did was bought a hair ornament for them all, so even with different hair styles they each had this in place which connected their hair look which I thought was a great idea. Also all bridesmaids where happy as they could have what they felt  most comfortable and relaxes with. It was a hot July day so all ladies decided to wear their hair up. A few with braids but all Boho romantic hair looks, One look was a soft simple low knot and yet it looked so effective and elegant. Sometimes less is more. Charlotte had 6 bridesmaids so it was fun for me to create different hair looks for each of them and also to chat to them all. I just loved being a part of it all. A wedding morning is full of emotions, make sure yours is everything you want it to be.

It was a very relaxed morning with the girls having breakfast, chatting and giggling away. They where very happy indeed with a lot of excitement in the air. I believe the bridal preparation is something to look forward to and enjoy so much. Its so fun to get ready with your girly friends and family. As you can see from the pictures the girls did nothing but smile. The girls robes too add to make a perfect picture.

 

Final touches to the brides hair..

The first look at The Bride… Just STUNNING!

 

 

Here are the Gorgeous ladies and their real life princess Bride. I loved the colour scheme too and the difference in the dresses. Three had one style and the other three had the other style. Can we just add to how elegant are their flower corsages on their wrists rather than a bouquet. very cool alternative… Amazing day had by all and thank you for letting me be part of it. Enjoy married life MR & MRS Lewis x

Happy is the bride that the sun shines on…

Stylistics Summer

Its been a summer of blushing brides, intense heatwaves, a million tourists and Fabulous hair and its not over yet….

This summer the heat intensified very early on and so did wedding season. Ibiza truly is a amazing place to get married. Each summer there are more and more brides choosing Ibiza as their wedding destination and I can totally see why.. Ibiza is where dreams are created and made..

Now what a summer it has been for stylistic I have just loved meeting all our brides and being part of your special day and their is many more brides still to come this month and October…  Bridal looks this summer are a mixture romantic, bohemian, sexy and classic … Hairstyles are just excelling with hair pieces and extensions. With added hair we can create looks your hair may not.. So remember this when choosing your bridal style pondering over Pinterest, speak to your hairstylist for the day and see if they recommend hair pieces to create your look.. The great thing about hair extensions or hair pieces is that they hold a curl or waves better than your own hair. So your look will stay that way all day…

Stylistic is all about hair, coming into my 18th year hairdressing (yes that makes me feel old) I am just loving the new hair trends.. Styling and bridal hair has become a massive part of my business and as a true Scouser I do love a bouncy blow dry… Its such a femine look… Hair this summer has been about wanded waves, boho braids and more….

A little tip when your here in Ibiza especially if your a bride to be. or if you wearing hair extensions. The water here is very harsh so a little trick I do, on your final rinse when washing your hair use bottled water, this will put some moisture back into your hair and leave it feeling fresh… Another little tip silk pillow cases are the way forward for stopping hair matting, Maybe bring one with you… A girl has to do what a girl has to do to keep her hair at its best now.

Ibiza every year is becoming more and more glamorous and stylistic is here for all your HAIR needs…

Now with more brides to come I cant wait to meet you all.. During the winter I will write blog posts on some summer brides and showcase their hair.

Hasta Pronto

Mexico Dream’s

When your little brother gets engaged, your over the moon for him and his fiancée. Then he tells you the wedding is in Mexico!!! Well you become ecstatic!!! Not only a family holiday of a lifetime but a wedding too! Two things I LOVE most!!!

Getting married abroad and only dealing with all your bridal details over email can be stressful for any bride but anything you do in the U.K before your arrival can only help matters! Katie the bride my now sister in law! Took control of lots of things UK side including having her flowers made to take over with her and all her table names and table décor! What Katie found helpful was of course little things like finding their Facebook page and speaking to other brdies for advice. This also saved my brother a fortune! Ha ha. One of the biggest pieces of advice I can give to getting married abroad is to join as many social media groups as possible that relate to your destination and venue.  Social media will help you pick up tips and ideas. Not only that, its helps with all the excitement and build up!

Now back to our Mexico wedding!!!  My younger sister and I are hairdressers which is always helpful at family and friends weddings!

On the morning of the wedding, all the girlys met up. No husbands, boyfriends or kids were allowed ( such a shame ) 🙂 We had breakfast altogether with a glass of bucks fizz and we were all extremely chatty and giddy for the day ahead! Katie the bride was calm and excited as we headed back the room!

Getting ready all together I believe is such a big part of your wedding day. Its all about the bride and spending time getting ready all girlys together! One of the key facts to help the preparation go smoothly is the schedule of hair & make up and giving yourself enough time so you can enjoy it rather than stressing! Katie loved it and was GLOWING! I love wedding morning’s for any bride, but for my new sister to be it was so nice to be so involved as I was a bridesmaid too! Me and my sister between us decided on the hair styles and worked together to create them. Even the bride Katie’s hair my sister created the shape at the back of her hair and I finished the front and the finishing touches! Team work 🙂  Us as bridesmaids went for a side up do of softly curls and height on top! Katie went for a romantic up do at the nape of her neck which showcased her beautiful hair vine and her cascading veil! Hair done, make up done by Katie’s sister who isn’t a make up artist but has a natural talent. Then its time to get the bride ready to become a Princess !

Katie put her wedding dress on and it took our breath away, all three of us! Katie has a amazing figure and the dress fitted her perfectly! She became a real life princess in front of our eyes! Just Stunning! It was really emotional, I do love a cry though! ha.  Dress on all ready it was photo time then time to leave! Now this is when the nerves rush in for any bride! Such a wonderful powerful moment taking your final steps as a single lady!

When we arrived at the top of the aisle we could see the Caribbean ocean behind the wedding gazebo. Here we were met by the two page boys, may I say the cutest page boys I have ever seen! Being biased I know as one is my little Francisco and my Nephew Ollie my brother and Katie’s little boy! This then started the tears seeing the boys there it all became quite real! The music started and that was it! Katie was walking down the aisle to marry the love of her life!

Katie strolled down the aisle with her father with the biggest smile on her face that didn’t leave all day! As I was walking down I stole a look at my brothers face. I have never seen him smile like that he was gleaming with happiness, transfixed on Katie coming towards him! The vows being quoted in the Caribbean air was just love all around! Cheesy as it may sound but I don’t care when two people love each other so much all the guest absorb this and these two lovebirds really do!

The ceremony was very special and personal, with both mums doing a reading! Then it was confetti time and time to celebrate the new MR & MRS FAIRFELD on the beach in Mexico followed by a yummy dinner and private party by the pool! Arrribaaaa!

The New Mr & Mrs Fairfield

How amazing is this photo!

I want to wish the newlyweds all the best and to enjoy their journey through life together ! I believe in soul mates and you are definitely each others love you both and our Ollie pop!

Your wedding day was like a dream and a day we will all remember forever!

W

True Love right here! This picture means more than we initially thought as Katie had a baby in her belly! Yes 3 are becoming 4! How AMAZING!!!!!!!!

 

A holiday of a lifetime with all the family and a Fairytale wedding ! AM going to leave you with this line-:

”I wanna dance by the water underneath the Mexican sky”

We sure did! xxxxxxxxx

The wedding of Sabrina & Ryan was a gorgeous one and a HOT one for sure!!!

Sabrina travelled all the way from Leeds to come to my salon in the UK for her trial even though we didn’t go for the look of the trial. It was changed a few times over messages which is all good, what we did do was click with each other and build up a relationship, so on the day of her wedding it felt like I was going to do a friends hair.

Sabrina and her family stayed in the Sensatori Hotel which is  in the area of Cala Tarida which gets amazing sunsets!! It was a super hot day of the wedding day, and the venue the bride had decided on was Elixir which is just stunning with amazing views!

Sabrina’s look was just divine from the colour scheme to her Shoes!!! Which I course I will include a picture of these babies!!! I loved the soft pink and peaches of the bridesmaids and flower girls dresses. When me and Hannah (my amazing make up artist) arrived Sabrina was glowing excited for her day ahead.. The morning was spent getting ready full of smiles, laughter and her gorgeous daughter, niece and nephew giggling away!! Sabrina’s dress was so Spanish looking with all the lace and her headpiece just sparkled as soon as I seen it! Floral dreams did Sabrina’s flowers and they never disappoint stunning as always!

All the wedding party worn their hair up as I said it was a super hot day! The bridesmaids went for boho fish tails braid’s up do and Sabrina went for a soft romantic up do with height to showcase her headpiece… The Make up was very natural with lots of warm tones…. When we left the room their was a massive buzz in the air, Sabrina was about to marry her prince and she was beaming! Already looking beautiful before even putting her dress on! That’s the thing with wedding’s I love my job working with ladies on their most special day you absorb all the positive energy and their was a definately a lot of this going on this day! As you can see in the pictures below Sabrina was a real life princess

Ibiza in August & Life….

Ibiza really is a crazy Island it is overrun right now and as its fantastic for business on the island and the survival of Ibiza I am really looking forward to September arriving.  Dont get me wrong the island is buzzing and every night is the weekend…. But August heat will cool a bit and hopefully the roads will tame a bit too…..

You really would not believe this was the same place if you took a video out side my apartment now and in March say, those who have never been to IBIZA in winter would be amazed!!! I love the ever changing faces of it but I must say August is my least favourite month of all!!! But hey am not moaning I live in the sunshine … Honest ;0

I don’t have many brides often in August , If we do a lot are Teachers or work in a industry where is easier to get time off in summer time… I do have a few brides coming up in the next week so am excited to meet them!!!!

This summer I have found a challenge  being a new mummy trying to work and have a husband,, I don’t know which or who is harder work sometimes! ha ha. That’s the thing with living away from family its the support network you miss so much. The nursery’s here are fantastic though and a lot more reasonable than the UK which is a good thing plus how good that my Francisco is being brought up bilingual. They have dance hours and they have splash time with paddling pools which is cute… I love the fact Francisco is outdoors a lot …

With September comes a lot of weddings which is exciting!!!! Even a bride all the way from Australia. My second wedding anniversary how that has happened ….. Plus its my baby boys 1st Birthday on the 26th!!!! Best year of my life even with all the emotional ups and downs motherhood brings us but I wouldn’t change it for the world!!!

Over and out ill be back with a bridal blog next!!!!!

Olaplex!!! Have you had yours??

The New wonder product that has hit our industry to help you have FABULOUS hair again!!

My salon in the UK started with Olaplex and I was hearing so many good things about this product I was intrigued and excited to go back to work with my team and see what this product was and is all about!

It never disappointed me this product can be used within colour so the colour doesn’t damage or as a stand alone treatment. When using colour in your hair this product gives the Tint like a silk lining so no damage is caused to the hair! Even with bleach! What is actually does is…. The products repairs broken hair bonds, these of course are broken down by chemical and heat damage.. Repairing your bonds improves the condition and the texture of your hair!!! Many people ask what’s the difference between a conditioning treatment and Olaplex well a conditioning treatment works on the surface of the hair and doesn’t last where as Olaplex works from inside the hair and repairs the hairs damage!

So Sold and I brought it out to IBIZA!! Hair can be even more damaged here due to of course the sun, pool sea and the water isn’t the best! So I introduced it to the people of Ibiza….

I recently did a stand alone treatment of my gorgeous Ibiza resident client Heather as you can see from the results how amazing does her hair look! This is what heather said…’ Colour is epic and hair feels tonns thicker and super smooth’ That will do for me 🙂

Everyone should try this product its especially good for your hair after a baby , which I have personally found. I am hearing so much good feedback from clients here and in the UK … One client even said her hair never grows past a certain length but with this product is has started growing and exceeding her expectations … So is this the holy grail of hair!!!

Book yours where ever that may be as remember ladies there is only one of you & Your worth it!

Mrs Tulip aka Olaplex lover!! 🙂

Summer has arrived with my first bride a Irish beauty…..

So the summer has arrived roads are busy beaches are full, yes IBIZA is well and truly open for season 2016!

Each year it still takes a bit to getting used to this island as it really is two different places come Summer to Winter! Which do I prefer people ask, this  alone is the reason I LOVE Ibiza! As its like you live in two different places! Keeps life exciting!

So my first bride of the season arrived the beautiful Hayley. Hayley married at Cas Mila which we know I have a massive soft spot for being my wedding venue too! When I arrived the bride and bridesmaids looked gorgeous already without hair and make up done! The morning was very relaxed with everyone getting ready and stunning views from the hotel overlooking the mesmerizing mediterranean sea!

Hayley had a soft undo with height on top she wanted it to look natural as well as classy. The bridesmaids went for soft waves and half up to complement their dresses. As you can see she is gorgeous so wasn’t difficult to make this bride look good! I loved her dress and her bridesmaids soft pastel pink dresses seeing a lot of this colour this year,  looks perfect over here in the sunshine! I just love the atmosphere build up when everyone putting their dresses on. You could feel the excitement in the room!

Also look forward to meeting all my brides to be for 2016 and what ever else Ibiza brings my way!

Lets do this & be STYLISTIC!

Helllooo September, goodbye a strange august! Plus a stunning bride!

I  know we are half way through September and I am writing this but I am just loving this time of year even though I am due to give birth one week today!!

August is a crazy month here in Ibiza its sooooo busy and so HOT through the airport alone it hit a new record of 1,300,505 passengers caught flights! Which is up 2.3% on last year!

This August and beginning of September we have had bad storms and not good weather for a fair few weeks on and off. Which is strange for this time of year we often have the odd bad week but this seemed to go on a little longer.

I felt so sorry for two of my brides, especially one. When we where all getting the bride ready the thunder was literally nearly shaking the apartments we where in! Thankfully the sun came out shining for her on her special day and can I say she looked amazing!  Lauren and her bridal party where all gorgeous girls with lovely hair, so good to work with, maybe some wasn’t there own but shhhhhhh.  Each bridesmaids had a slighty different look but kept to the theme of soft curls and waves! With bridesmaids some brides like them to have the same style this can be quite difficult at times if you have bridesmaids with different hair styles,  but I always think as long as they blend together and your bridesmaids feel comfortable and happy, it will look perfect for the pictures. Lauren the bride is stunning! The bride wanted half up and down with soft curls and height on top and it fitted perfect with her gorgeous dress! She is just beaming on all the pictures I have seen and looks radiant! Lauren married at Exlir shore club in Cala Traida Ibiza.  A amazing venue..Thank you for letting me be part of your day!

Here are a few pictures of the bride and her bridal party!

So then arrives September with cooler temperatures and again a few storms but now we have perfect sunshine, glorious weather. The beaches are busy again and the tourists are happy as our we who live here as the temperature is just nice! I am hoping that the sunshine will keep its hat on through out of October now due to the bad weather we have had!

I am on maternity leave now awaiting for our baby boy to arrive with a mixer of feelings but of course the excitement to meet him being the main one!!! I am having the baby here in Ibiza so I await the arrival of my little Senior Tulip!

I Just want to take this opportunity to Thank all my brides of 2015 and look forward to being part of my 2016 brides special days! Its my one year wedding anniversary this month! I cant believe it has been a whole year when all my dreams of my wedding day came true!! I still look at all you brides to be with a bit of envy as it truly is the most magical day ever!!!!

Mummy to be! Mrs Tulip! x

A beautiful bride in a custom made dress!

Rebecca got married in the beautiful Cas Mila a favourite of mine as that was of course my wedding too!

I first met Becki as she let me call her the week before her wedding for her bridal hair trial, she is a gorgeous girl inside and out and has the most fabulous long hair , perfect to work with. Me and Becki sat and discussed her look she was wanting or her big day and what she was wearing in her hair. She also showed me her dress I just said WOW. Becki works for Kevin Jon who is a ladies clothes designer am sure you have heard of him, if  not check it out.. his dresses are beautiful and so feminine. Him and Becki and their team had designed and made her wedding dress so it was unique for her. As you can see on the pictures coming it really was breathtaking and suited Becki’s slim figure.The hair trial went well and the bride was happy with her hair. She was going to Ibiza rocks that night to swish it about.

Arriving on the wedding day, what a gorgeous summers Ibiza day it was. Arriving the bride seemed content and excited and was a pleasure working for. The look for the brides hair was a soft romantic curl, we pre pin-curled the hair and left it to set as Becki’s had her make up done by the fabulous Hannah. I work a lot with Hannah she is very talented make up artist and in the winter time works in Manchester in Bobby Brown so she is always keeping her skills up to date. When I took her hair out of the pins unravelling the curls and individualising them all,  I then dressed it out giving Becki some height above her crown for her veil to sit underneath. Bit of back combing ladies is a must!

Once the veil was fitted me and Hannah left for the bride to get ready in peace.  Becki sent me the pictures just recently and they took my breath away. Which were took by Ana Lui Studio by Iva. She just looked stunning like I knew she would her hubby scrubs up well too 🙂
