Wondering if you should grow your hair for that gorgeous wedding style? Think if you don’t get it trimmed it will grow longer? Think your hair should be long and all one length? Then read on, this blog is for you xx

Bearing in mind most of these images have either been edited, extensions used, hair padding used etc…
So my tips are:
Note: all of the above is my own personal opinion and not the opinion of all hair stylists, each stylist will have their own opinion of what works for them and what doesn’t xx
