Hey, I'm Alev and I'm so glad you landed here. If you're looking for natural wedding hair and makeup that looks and feels like you, then you're in the right place.
Before we dive into anything here is a little bit of info about me!
I'm just awkward millennial just trying to spread joy and inspire you with glossy, natural hair and makeup. The world is FULL of misconceptions when it comes to wedding hair and makeup and I'm trying my hardest to build a safe space for everyone. Weddings are not one race, one colour, one gender or one size. This is a fully inclusive space for all humans. I want to celebrate you just as you are. As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community - all love is celebrated here. I can also help with gender affirming wedding makeup.
Together we can build a style that works for you and celebrates your uniqueness.
This is hair and makeup you can wear on your wedding day and not wedding hair and makeup!
A natural wedding makeup and hair look that makes you feel like you but elevated is my passion.
Empowering people to buck tradition and wedding norms to go with the natural wedding hair and makeup that makes them feel truly beautiful from the inside out is what really gets me out of bed in the morning (and those are some early mornings let me tell you!)
Come get to know me, my style and my question to you is this, would you invite me to your wedding? Because if you can picture me there with you, that is a really good place to start.
Curly wedding hair styling
Want to keep your natural curls for your wedding but not sure where to start?
It's tough out there for curly people! Years of having your already perfect texture heat blasted out only to have curls put back in again? EEEK! No I don't do that here.
Having trained with Lindsey Hughes (the best curly hair dresser in the UK) I can now offer full curly blowdrys, natural curl styling and lots of tips and tricks to get your curls looking amazing for your wedding day and everyday!

"Alev did my hair and makeup for my wedding, along with my mother and mother-in-law's. I wanted to find someone who had experience in working on different skin tones as well as curly hair, and Flaming Bride really encapsulated exactly what i was looking for - in both experience and attitude!
I hands down couldn't have asked for anyone better - during my trial, she understood exactly what I was looking for, and we experimented to find a wonderful style that suited my specific hair type and texture.
On the actual wedding day, she was so supportive, got along like a house on fire with my family and wedding party, and was exactly the aura that I needed on the morning before the ceremony. Can't recommend Alev enough, she is an absolute gem in the industry!"
