Ibiza season 2018 has been a pleasure…

So as I sit here and write this blog I cant believe its October.. Ibiza season 2018 has been a busy hot and enjoyable one. So yesterday was the last closing of the season that was DC10 so now the island is beginning to start to feel like its going into winter mode.. Many people ask me what’s it like in winter, its unreconisable to many people as most places start too close, roads are quiet and Ibiza has time to recover from the summer gone. Also of course the weather gets cooler but until December we still get beach days.

I love this island in the winter, yes I would love direct flights from the north of the UK even midlands would be good. Yes I would love a few more places open especially as I live in playa dem bossa and it literally becomes a ghost town. But there is something special about this time of year too.

I work part time here in Ibiza in the winter getting back to being a hairdresser colouring, cutting  and styling my Ibiza residents hair. Its nice to get back to the day job.. ha ha . Even though I am becoming bridal hair obsessed even more so then when I got married. I do also love winter as I get to blog more and talk to my future brides to be. If you would like to arrange a bridal chat please get in touch and we can arrange this. Living on the island all year and getting married here myself I can give a few helpful tips and tricks.

The next few weeks I will be blogging on a few weddings from this summer. I have one more wedding of the season and I am very excited to be part of it as its Natasha a well known photographer on the island .

I want to take this moment to Thank everyone who has given me some great opportunitys this summer . Also my main girl on Make up Hannah their is no I in team and that’s what makes the dreamteam. Also all the fab photographers for letting me share your images. But mainly all my beautiful brides thank you for letting me be part of your day. I love what I do and love to create your hair looks for your main day and be part of your bridal journey. Hopefully see some of you again in Ibiza for all your hair needs….

Over and out and re,member to be stylistic…

 

 

Elixir Bride Kerri….

July 1st 2018 the wedding day of Kerri had arrived. The wedding venue the breath taking Elixir at Cala Tarida. Kerri had booked me and Hannah of Eyebizamakeup for her wedding day. The morning started at 8 am at the Hawaii Hotel then heading to Kerri’s villa afterwards, her and bridal party all waiting. The wedding preparation was such a fun morning, you could tell these girlys have such a strong friendship. Their was nothing but laughter and smiles all the time me and Hannah worked away. Their is nothing quite like the wedding morning getting often afternoons too, as weddings here are often later due to the heat of course.. The music was playing drinks flowing, excitement in the air. If you could bottle it up am sure it would be worth fortunes….

I first met Kerri last October when she was over to check out her venue Elixir. She had a trial with me and Hannah which went well even though we changed her hair twice over , just a few little peeks here and their. On the day we knew the exact hair look the bride wanted and it fitted perfect with her style of dress. Your hair is their to complement your dress. Wear your hair and make up how you feel pretty and take into consideration the heat. The bridemaid’s all had different hair types and lengths but I created a similar simple romantic up for each of them. I really liked their hair looks… The gorgeous mother of the bride had her hair and make up done and the smile on her face when she seen herself said it all. She looked amazing ..

 

Kerri had flew a photographer over from the UK I will put her details below and her images are just beautiful! When me and Hannah left Kerri was just about to get dressed , so I didn’t see her till we where kindly sent some pictures and this little video below. Kerri you looked stunning and your hubby scrubbed up well too. But their was one little princess of the day, their little girl who was just adorable … Thanks for letting us be part of your day and maybe see you around in Ibiza again soon xxxx

Back in Ibiza and getting ready for 2018….

So I spent 6 weeks over Christmas and the New Year in the UK, postives of course seeing all my family and friends and being part of their every day life, being back in The Salon full time enjoying working as part of a team and gaining a new member of the team too.. A mini make over for The salon consisting of a freshen up of the paint work and a whole new lighting system . I have had my salon now called THE SALON 11 years and its going strong which makes me so so happy. I just love working in their like I have always said it was my first baby that I created and built up. When you love what you do you only want one way for it to go and that’s onwards and upwards.

The negatives have to be the weather….. Now I sit here and write this as I look out the window here in Ibiza its raining but tomorrow is going to be glorious and that’s the thing here we may get bad days or even a few days on a row in winter but you know its not going to be long term , The sunshine will be back soon and that’s why I love living here. I just wish I could transport family and friends here too! ha. But hey ho, not long till direct flights start rom the North soon.

Last week and this week I have been doing all my regular Ibiza resident client’s, who I am forever grateful to for waiting for me while I have been away. 7 years this April I moved here and that’s 7 years of commuting for the two businesses and building a loyal clientele up, When I think of this is makes me think wow! But I must say, by having the business in Southport and here in Ibiza its developed my skills a lot as I am always learning from my stylists at The Salon and of course keeping my bridal skills updated with regular courses when I go back the UK. I also purchased a new gadget when I was back in the UK and cant wait to use my GHD curve wand to create fabulous beach waves.

I am excited for this year to come and for the season to start here in Ibiza. Yes I love the tranqulity of winter time but I am also too much of a busy bee who likes things going on too. This year when I am speaking to brides I am feeling very excited I think because I was a Ibiza bride myself I can relate so much to it all, but also I know what your day is going to be like , I still smile like a Cheshire cat when thinking of my big day. Your day is going to be amazing too as your choosing to marry here in Ibiza. The beautiful white isle.

If you would like to get in touch for your bridal hair and make up journey then please get in touch and even schedule a bridal phone call with me to chat about your hair ideas .

Is this your wedding year?

I always say to my brides  enjoy the bridal journey as its one that you will always remember. From the minute I got engaged and I know other brides too, I was all set out to plan plan plan. Magazines bought the next day! When the clock strikes midnight on New years eve that’s it , its your wedding year. Hens dos, bridal fittings, bridesmaids lunches and maybe another hen do…

I say why not go for it , Celebrate everything , When dates are confirmed , your dress arriving, buying your wedding shoes… A wedding organiser is key to plan all the details and of course the dreaded budget. Of course if your getting married on the Island that is Ibiza you must visit to check out your wedding venue and maybe meet your planner. Also any excuse to get away and even more so to Ibiza…

Ibiza is getting so popular each year getting busier and busier with weddings, I can see why this is. The island is so one of a kind. MAGICAL.

Here are a few little tips…

  • Be in contact with your wedding planner but don’t panic when they don’t respond straight away…
  • Each day of each month in Ibiza their is a wedding so don’t panic your time will come for all the final planning and attention from your planner
  • Sun cream and strapless swimsuits or strapless bikini’s you don’t want to look burnt or have tan lines
  • Follow all your people your using, florists, hairstylists. MUA and more all on social media
  • Pinterest boards!!
  • Planning and being organized the morning of your wedding makes it more enjoyable
  • Don’t have your room overcrowded when getting ready the morning of your big day
  • ENOY it all……..

I cant wait to meet my brides of 2018 UK and Ibiza, its going to be a great year!

 

 

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

The Secret

The-Secret-by-Rhonda-Byrne

 

Nearly six years I was in a place in my life where I was enjoying myself living a single life. Enjoying time with my girlfriends then one sunny Sunday afternoon with the family, I decided to go and get my fortune told, what was said when I left that place my life or mind was about to change, not because what I was told about my future, more what I was told to go and buy!!! It was a gent who told me my fortune, half way through the reading he stopped looked at me and said why are you so negative towards men!! I was took back and said I am not to which he replied unfortunately you are. He then went on to say that I would meet the man I was going to marry by the end of the year this being July at the time! But I had to go and buy a book called THE SECRET.

 

Now when I say this book changed my life I honestly believe it did, when you read the book yes you have to be realistic at times but what is the harm in believing. We live in a world of judgement and perception of whom we should all be. So why not believe in ourselves and our dreams!

I believe every now and again you need things like this in your life to change your perspective to the positive rather than the negative! This is what it did for me with men rather than thinking I always meet the wrong ones ( sorry ex boyfriends) I started to see myself with the type of man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with! The positives I wanted in a partner.. I imagined myself going to parties with him , going on holiday . Not to the extent of planning our wedding but that may have helped me organise my wedding better 🙂 Now even though I say I feel it made me meet the right guy it has changed my life in many other ways too always seeing the good in things , seeing the little things in life as such special things. From a stranger smiling at you, to a little baby giggling or the sun setting after a lovely day.

This also is the key for anything you desire, see it , believe it, dream it!

Now many of my friends often think I am a bit crazy and at times a bit full on with this! We are all in control of our own destiny and I believe the secret has led me on my path by believing it myself. I use the secret in my everyday life too when I am having a bad day I try to turn it in to a positive and make it in to a good day!

It’s amazing a smile can go a long way!!

Often I feel the need to pass The Secret on and I feel like I am giving the gift away someone gave me all them years ago! I see how it can change people lives!

Now yes I am realistic and life does have its challenges but making the best of out every situation I believe is the right attitude! You have to be open to The Secret to let it in.

Whats amazing now is living on this amazing island , most houses I visit I see The Secret on most of my clients book shelves, this may of helped them create their life here, just may be .

Ibiza is a very spiritual island and I definitely feel like I am in the right place right now with the natural instinct I get from being here. I love the spirit of this Island and the pure beauty!

Especially as this is where I am going to marry my best friend this September!
