I am 33 year old mum of three beautiful children. I started hairdressing at the age of 16 (that always makes me feel old!) I started up Ashleigh Buntings hair 6 years ago, in which time, I found the love for bridal hair and it was the best decision I have ever made.
I am so lucky to have a career that I absolutely love, a job that I am very passionate about and that also works perfectly around my children and family life.
Styling hair for a brides wedding day, isn’t just a job for me – it’s a love. I know that sounds pretty cheesy, but it is true, 2020 has proven this to me as not being able to work during the pandemic has made me realise just how much I love and miss my job and my brides.
It makes me really happy to see others happy, and being a bridal hairstylist allows me to do this everyday.
I always try to be the best I can be, so I am always educating myself, looking for ways to improve on my skills and myself as a person. I am currently a member of the Lisa Alger Online Academy which I am really enjoying and learning lots of new things everyday. I also like to attend regular bridal hairstyling training programmes in order to keep up to date with the latest trends and techniques.
My two most recent achievements are being a finalist in the Kent Wedding Awards 2020, and The Wedding Business Awards 2020. The Kent Wedding Awards was my first ever competition entry, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to achieve a finalist place!
I am just a normal hard working girl trying to make my dreams come true by doing something I truly love.
Here are some lovely words kindly sent to me from Brides who I have had the pleasure to work with in the past.
I am ever so glad that I found Ashleigh - she did such a fantastic job with my hair on my wedding day.
I couldn't have been happier with how it looked and felt. It meant that I could get on with and enjoy the incredible day I had marrying my husband.
With our wedding being in December 2020, there were lots of restrictions, and no bridesmaids...! But that didn't stop Ashleigh travelling over to me. I am so grateful for all her help and support on the morning.
Ashleigh took the time she needed on the trial to work out what would suit me, so that on the wedding day the hair was absolutely perfect. I loved the style she created so much that it made me emotional. We tried and tested a few styles on the trial, but on the day we went with a half up / half down style and it was perfect for me. As well as my hair, Ashleigh also did 2 bridesmaids and both Mums on the day. I loved working with her so much that she is now also my regular mobile hairdresser.
Thank you so much Ashleigh, you're amazing. Lots of love Alice X
I was SO glad I found Ashleigh. Working from a few photos I had picked out she understood what I wanted and the style I was looking for at the trial. On the day itself Ashleigh recreated exactly what I wanted and more impressively my hair stayed perfect despite the weather being hot and humid! I felt confident that I was in the hands of a complete professional from the start with Ashleigh, she is such a lovely person who put me totally at my ease. Everyone loved my hair at the wedding including me!
I would just like to say a massive thank you. My wedding was brought forward 8 months due to personal family reasons and Ashleigh was so flexible and wanted to make sure she could do my hair for my special day. Nothing was too much, I had 4 bridesmaids as well as my mum and mother in law and it all ran so smoothly. I didn’t have to worry or panic on the day, Ashleigh made sure of that. I wanted to try something different for my hair and Ashleigh tried it for the first time on the morning of my wedding, and I LOVED it. I had so many compliments throughout the day and night and it made me feel SO confident. I didn’t get to lose as much weight as I wanted, but I felt gorgeous and the majority of this was down to my hair!
Ashleigh did my hair for my wedding and for my 5 bridesmaids on 15/08/2019
She was amazing and did a fabulous job. She recreated what I wanted perfectly even though I did change my mind on my hairstyle multiple times!
I would 1000% recommend her to anyone looking for a perfectionist of a hairdresser who is friendly and professional.
The whole morning of my wedding was stress free and I was extremely calm & collected and it helped massively that Ashleigh knew exactly what she was doing. She was chatting to me & the bridesmaids which made me feel so at ease. She’s done my hair a few times now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. She is just perfect!
Ashleigh did the hair for my wedding, and she was AMAZING!
I loved the very first style she did for ,e during my trial, so that was it job done!
But then, on my wedding day, she was also doing my sisters hair. I showed her a clip from 'Derry girls' of Erin's ball hair, and while Ashleigh had never tried that style before, she had a go and my sister looked absolutely gorgeous.
Would definitely recommend to anyone!
