This is me Simone, styling a beautiful bride on her special day.

Hello and welcome to my bridal hair site! 


My name is Simone and I am a Freelance Hairdresser based in Sunderland and servicing the whole of the North East. 


I started my hairdressing career as a 17 year old; gaining Level 2 and 3 Hairdressing at Tyneside College and finishing my apprenticeship at a local, well established salon. I worked in salons within Sunderland for 12 years, working my way up to Senior Stylist; before deciding to take the step into freelance hairdressing so that I could pursue my dream of becoming a specialist Bridal Hairdresser. 


I find my job extremely rewarding. Being able to be part of a bride's special day, and help her to feel like a princess on her wedding day; is a wonderful feeling. I love being able to take a step back at the end of the process and see the bride and bridesmaids looking perfect and ready to go!


I have over 20 years' experience in hairdressing, during which I have attended various courses and training days hosted by the best in the industry. I believe continuous training is important in my profession and aim to attend at least one training course every couple of years. Past courses I have completed include: 


- L'Oreal Advanced Colour Techniques

- Wella Colour Techniques

- Saks Advanced Hair Up

- Elite Hair Extensions


I am also heavily influenced by the best hair-up artists in the world; such as Patrick Cameron.  


Although I specialise in Bridal and Prom Hair; I cover all aspects of hairdressing techniques, including cuts, colours and styling. Covering most of the North East, I travel to your home or venue to create your unique style (travel costs may apply).
