I’m Tina and I’ve been in the hairdressing industry for over 25 years ( I still can’t believe it myself!), 8 years of those I have been a Wedding Hair Newcastle Specialist. I trained in a 365 programme salon, which was a fantastic opportunity for me. The training was second to none and I completed my training to City and Guilds level 3 . I’ve worked in a few of Newcastle’s larger salons and became Creative Director and Manager at the last one. What I missed about working in a salon was not doing enough hair up work, so I took the plunge and left the salon environment to focus more on bridal hair. My career has allowed me to work creatively, being part of Northumbria University Fashion shows for over 20 years, Belle Bridal Wedding wonderland Show, editorial work for magazines, photo shoots for companies like Lyle and Scott, Brinkburn Priory, Lumley Castle, Crack Magazine and even our good old Evening Chronicle. more recently you can find links (below) to photoshoots featured in Belle Bridal, Rock My Wedding, Whimsical Wonderland….
I feel incredibly lucky to be in a job I absolutely love and to work alongside some of Newcastle’s amazingly talented people!
Ever since I was tiny I have had a passion for hair and make-up. I used to play for hours styling my Girls World’s hair and watch my mum putting on her make up, she’d even give me her old lipstick to play with. As I got older (and by older I mean 11!) My interest in hair grew and grew and by the time I was old enough I knew that’s what I wanted to do. Become a hairdresser. It’s in my heart and soul and can’t imagine ever doing anything else. My love of hair-up styling came very early on in my career and I had many opportunities in the salon I worked in to allow me to express that side of my hairdressing. Wedding hair styling is a fantastic experience and it’s so lovely to work with someone to help them feel their very best on one of the most important days of their life. I feel truly privileged to be part of it.
I’m happy to travel to any venue to make things as easy as possible for you on the day.
Please get in touch. I look forward to meeting you!
Wedding Hair Specialist.
