Such a fun wedding to be a part of πŸ’–πŸŽ€

Hope everyone had a lovely Halloween! Few snaps from my good friend Eoughan + SinΓ©ads big day last year @mountdruidweddings . Nothing but love at this one πŸ’•


I saw this and thought of so many of my brides who had to postpone their wedding date.

What a lovely keepsake of that special date. πŸ₯°

The pandemic blew off a lot of our plans, right? With so many canceled and postponed save-the-dates, it doesn’t just ruin our planned events and occasions–– it also somehow took its toll on some of us emotionally.

We all keep that special date close to our heart, be it a wedding or a family reunion or a special day with your significant other. Why not immortalize that day, as an acknowledgment of what could have been, and what could be in the future?

@coracumminsceramics created this very simple, eco-friendly ceramic vase where you can print that special date to mark it. Its size is perfect to hold a small bunch of wildflowers.

Go ahead, gift this to someone (or to yourself) as a great way to remember those special moments!

Her Hair πŸ™‰πŸ™‰


After the interest in the engagement shoot of Barbie and Louis, (*It was highlighted to me that Barbie was eloping with a 1Direction doll and not a Ken doll), I have decided to post the pictures of their big day. Ken and Barbie must have parted ways amicably as Ken was even invited to the wedding, where he brought along his new girlfriend, also called Barbie who controversially wore a white dress 🀯

Louis was joined by 1Direction band member Harry 😍 as his best man and Barbie had, well, another Barbie as maid of honour. There was a plethora of famous and well-known guests who all had a great day in the glorious Easter weather πŸŒ…

Unfortunately, Ken let himself down at the ceremony and was asked politely to leave and then, made an inebriated return later at the lakeside evening do 🍺🍻🍾🀭

Hope you enjoy. Isolation has taken my sanity πŸ˜‚

Stay safe and well. Much love, Agnieszka ❀️❀️❀️

Looking forward to longer summer days and returning to work and to weddings.
My love of bridal + curls combined with a great colour is what makes me tick.
I work to create a wedding hair that appreciates and honours the natural curl.
The colour is another essential aspect that will bring the curl alive.

Happy New Year

As a shoe lover, I'm so with the statement shoe trend this year.
I just love the idea of wearing something so special again and again.

My beautiful bride Sinead was inspired by the colour beetroot!

Wait till you see her drop dead gorgeous bridesmaids. Each adorning their own shade and style.

So this marks one year since my win with Team Ireland in the world hairdressing championships. I never compete so this was more of a dare.

I took on a challenge and created this at my kitchen table...just for fun. It was a whirlwind of fun, to say the least.

Every year I set myself a challenge, to push myself, keep my passions on fire and most importantly, learn about myself in the process.

Make every day an opportunity.

This Real Wedding in Dublin was Actually Like a Hollywood Movie!

Loved the story behind this beautiful couple.

Lasairfhiona was the coolest bride and yes, she wore a $300 Vera Wang dress. This Dublin Christmas wedding is like something out of a rom com! Between the sequin bridesmaids dresses and the military salute, it's a very glam affair!


All you need is love

So much fun at this Beatles themed wedding.

Great music with a really chilled vibe. We loved all the details that my gorgeous bride put into the day.

Taking a moment here to share my hair envy as I swoon over this colour!

I know these tones wouldn't suit my complexion but I can still daydream.

It still fascinates me to watch Carolyn Newman at work.

There are clients, who like me want a shade or tone that won't suit them. Watching Carolyn's process and in depth colour matching consultation is terrific. Many the "oo's and ahh's" when she simplifies the how and why's. Carolyn formulates a colour shade that is prescriptive and unique to you to compliment your skin tone, eye colour and lifestyle.

Carolyn is visiting Dublin again to co-work with me The Curl Artist in Temple Bar in July.

July appointments are heavily booked now but there a couple of remaining complimentary consultations. Availability for colour in September is open.

See for yourself just how interesting and important the role that colour plays in your life.

It's not a case of wanting what you can't have but choosing what will make you "pop".

Here's the link to her schedule.

Toner or No Toner, Glaze or No Glaze that is Thursday’s question?!
I personally find it sometimes can dull the result.
So this time we used a variety of blonde light shades to keep a bright blonde and didn’t tone or glaze and it’s looking fabulous.
Colour by me using @schwarzkopfprouk and styling and selfie by @courtneymand

Do you sometimes skip the toner to keep a blonde fresh?


My beautiful bride πŸ’– Deborah πŸ’–
Who had a gloriously sunny day and so richly deserved.

Not only does you hair have to endure weather, but dancing, people hugging you, a veil or often beads on the dress can cause a little frizz.

With the lovely warm weather comes a little humidity and a major frizz causing factor.

It is so essential that you prep you hair in the lead up to you wedding, starting months in advance. Using premium quality shampoo, conditioners and hair treatments that are packed with nutrients ensuring your hair is hydrated, conditioned and nourished to withstand all weather conditions.

Especially important before and after colour. Prepare and Repair.

If you are having colour ensure to have it at least a week before your trial appointment and wedding day to allow the hair time to settle with at least three shampoos in between both dates.

Same with extensions, please only use premium quality for your wedding day. There are so many excellent qualities available that will look immaculate, no matter what the styling or weather change.

Treat your hair to organic hair colour. This will be the most photographed day of your life.
You won't want to spend a second fixing or maintaining your style. Make every step add to your perfect day. Every every second.

The fringe. Growing out a fringe but feeling the need to maintain it until the big day is one of the biggest hair dilemmas that most people have.
There is no need to compromise just for one day or the need to stick with a style you've outgrown.
Grow your hair because you want to wear it that way every day but not because you need to. There is always a styling solution and a way around everything.
Today we did something completely different that had been initially decided.
Extend or not to extend, grow out in time or to cut? Talk to your stylist before making any decisions.
The possibilities are endless.
Get in touch to discuss your plans.
Bookings are in and almost full for 2019

Happy New Curls!

So thrilled to rescue, restore and reunite these curls with their beautiful owner. 😊😍
The hair in the first pic was due to post pregnancy hair and lack of understanding of how to manage it. This is the result of years of uncertainty, frustrations, tons of hairclips and ghd use in trying to hide and manage what her curls had become. πŸ™„πŸ˜€
I can so relate to my hair in the months after after having Adam when I lost so much hair and the new growth was like having two completely different heads of curls growing at the same time. Even though I knew how to manage my hair, it was stressful at times to say the least.
It gave me so much joy to assist this beautiful lady in getting to know and love her curls from here on out.πŸŒ€πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ’–πŸŒ€
It's never too late to make a new start. Give yourself the gift of fabulous curls and make this year be about you looking and feeling amazing. πŸ“Έ
The second pic is how I tailored the cut by free hand and lovingly restored the curl using the kindest products @Boucleme.
We achieved this in one consultation and I'm so excited to follow this clients curl journey.
Pm me to talk about to talk about how you can achieve soft, bouncy curly hair. Make the most of your best assets. πŸŒ€πŸ’–πŸŒ€πŸ’πŸŒ€πŸ’ͺπŸŒ€
