We were recently treated to a day of photo fun courtesy of John Woodward Photography. Salon262 was closed for the day and transformed into a photography studio!
John Woodward is a highly praised Cambridge based wedding and portrait photographer with a talent for capturing beautiful and natural images. We cant speak highly enough of John, he has a gift for making the most camera shy among us feel natural and at ease in front of the lens. First time model Mari’s nerves quickly melted away as John made her feel really at ease and the rest of us couldn't resist having a go at being models ourselves!
Hair by Letty
Letty created a casual girl-next-door look for Mari with a disheveled.
Beginning by shampooing Mari's hair with Angel Wash and Angel Rinse,-perfect for volume and shine.
She then peeped the hair with mousse and using Kevin Murphy anti gravity spray Letty was able to achieve bigger thicker curls with a flexible hold. The whole salon smelt of an English country garden as it contains organic lavender!
Letty then blow dried Mari’s hair curly and set it in pin curls.
Then finished the look with Kevin murphy Doo-over dry shampoo, which is a dry finishing spray with great holding power, and a final spritz of session spray.
All the products Letty used are designed with the ethos of skin care for the hair and are light weight and natural whilst still delivering fantastic hold. They are all available for you to buy from the salon.

Make-up by Val
Val is our highly skilled in house make up artist with over 12 years experience. She also offers stunning bio sculpture nails at Salon262 and is available to hire as part of our wedding package along with Letty and John.
Val achieved a bronzed summer look for Mari by starting with a natural coverage using a Charlotte Tilbury tinted moisturiser which is light and dewy.
Benefit High Beam Liquid Highlighter worked wonderfully on Mari’s cheekbones to achieve a glowing complexion.
For Mari’s eyes Val used a Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow pallet in shimmery gold, bronze and terracotta tones to further capture the warm subtle summer look, with black liquid liner and false lashes to accentuate Mari’s beautiful eyes.
Finishing off the bronzed complexion with subtle coral blush on her cheeks and bronzer where the sun would naturally hit the skin.
Finally Mari’s lips have a warm orange tone lipstick with a slight gloss in the middle of the lips to accentuate her cupids bow giving the appearance of a fuller juicier lips.
We think Letty’s gentle cascading curls and Val’s soft and warm make-up beautifully complimented Mari’s petite features and fair complexion.
