Friends of W Collective - Hair At Hurst Barn
Updated: Apr 15, 2020
I have had the privilege of working with Katie from Hair at Hurst Barn on two wonderful shoots now, creating 4 gorgeous, collaborative looks. Katie is based in Clunton, Shropshire and is a master of cut, colour and styling for bridal hair and beyond. She also does gel nails, if you want to have a pamper!
The first time I met Katie was at a styled shoot we did at The Giraffe Shed. We hit it off right away and she totally understood and shared my vision for the shoot, with stunning results - she even had an epic wig which she styled with a fishtail plait, complete with real flowers no less. Each shoot we have done has featured two distinct looks, showcasing Katie's talents and adaptability. For this ethereal photoshoot the hair was undone, natural & bohemian.

We switched it up for a glam rock theme for the second look - with braids and glitter galore. What's not to love? I love how Katie showed two ways of rocking plaits.
The second time I was lucky enough to work with Katie was at Garthmyl Hall - I was a little hazy on this day as the night before I'd been called to babysit my nephew whilst my sister was in labour. I didn't sleep well and arrived at the shoot the next day elated to have found out that another baby boy had just been born! I was in some kind of lovely bubble and tried the best to direct and explain my ideas - luckily the whole team were lovely and supportive, and smashed the brief. Photos by Olivia Moon Photography.
Katie pulled together some low-key, effortless looks for the first half of the shoot.
Then we went for a disco evening look - featuring space buns! And plenty of chunky biodegradable glitter provided by Olivia from Wild Glitter.
So if you're looking for a versatile, talented hair stylist - Katie is your girl! Check out Hair At Hurst Barn on Instagram to see what she's got coming up.
