Charlotte Wesson – Hair Stylist – Review

Located in rural Lincolnshire, Charlotte Wesson travels the entire length of the UK performing hair wonders to all members of the bridal party.    She has a professional team that works alongside her for the larger bridal parties.

From the initial consultation through to the big day, you can be assured that Charlotte is a perfect example of an exquisite hair stylist.  Her professional yet friendly manner and experience fills you with the necessary confidence allowing you to relax and enjoy the lead up to the biggest day of your life.

Arranging a consultation with Charlotte is refreshingly simple.  Charlotte has a detailed website as well as a facebook page.  For me, this is an added bonus as you have the opportunity to see her portfolio and real life testimonials.  Personally I find it irritating when individuals have vague websites luring you into contacting them unnecessarily.
Many weddings are restricted by a budget so the first thing you want to know is a price.  It’s a complete waste of time contacting somebody if they are not within your price range.  Charlotte’s website is clear, concise and provides answers to the important questions.  It is a real quality to see prices clearly listed; understandably they may differ due to your specific needs.  Attention to detail like this shows how Charlotte understands the needs of a soon-to-be-bride.
My experience of the consultation process consisted of a few e-mails discussing availability and requirements followed by a personal trial.  Charlotte will travel to you for a trial or you can travel to her; I chose the latter as it was the easiest option for me.  I sometimes find salons a little intimidating therefore it was nice to be welcomed into her home.  I was immediately relaxed and she was very accommodating.  As advised, I bought along sample pictures of the look I was hoping to achieve.  We chatted away as she styled my hair, offering advice and what I could expect on my big day – impromptu tears from others never crossed my mind yet she was spot on with it!
I felt comfortable to be able to pass judgment on the hair styles but it wasn’t necessary as Charlotte’s first attempt was perfect for me and an immediate decision was made.  She has completed a photography course which complements the trial process as she will e-mail you pictures of the completed styles to help you decide.  They also make a lovely personal keepsake for your memory box.  I found it unnecessary to have my bridesmaids undertake a trial however if this is something you require then Charlotte will endeavour to make it happen.
Charlotte travelled to my venue for my big day which was approximately 40 miles from her.  This was crucial for me as leaving the venue on the morning was not an option in my books.  The wedding morning was incredibly relaxed.  Beforehand Charlotte explained her itinerary enabling me to plan the bridal party makeup to coincide with her.  It worked out very well.  As one bridesmaid was having her hair done, another was having her makeup done; all the while I was sat sipping bucks fizz with rollers in my hair.
Charlotte was a real part of my morning celebrations and there was no awkwardness or stress.  It was all very relaxed and I believe Charlotte helped to create that atmosphere with her wealth of experience.  I strongly recommend a consultation with Charlotte Wesson as I am confident she will find the style of your dreams.
