Who we are..

Lovehair & Co was started in Surrey by renowned hair stylist and entrepreneur Jo Irving in September 2006. Before that, Jo was living in Scotland where she created her first successful wedding hair business in Gretna Green, after winning a Princes Trust award in 1999 at the age of 21.

Originally Lovehair was created as a way for me to do what I love to do -styling hair, but also to spend time with my then, young children. I didn’t realise how popular it would be. There was a gap in the market for cool, creative bridal hair and make up without all the hearts and flowers, but still with the bride in mind and focused on her needs. That’s exactly what we offered, so the business just took off and hasn’t stopped growing and evolving since.
I am so lucky that I love what I do. I am constantly learning and growing as a stylist as well as a company.

Attention to Detail and Experience

Jo's high standards, creativity and passion for bridal styling has made her popular with brides and stylists alike. Jo has worked with brides everywhere from Capri to Cornwall, Loch Lomond to Westminster Abbey, and even at the Royal wedding (Although not the bride!)

Due to a high demand for her services she has brought together a team of like minded and equally professional stylists to make up what is now Lovehair & Co. One of the first and largest teams of its kind.

Lovehair & Co is now able to offer professional make up and hair to brides all over the UK, by stylists that Jo considers to be some of the best in the country.

Jo explains: "We are able to offer our brides unrivalled customer care, a space at the studio for them to visit us and chat through their booking and a friendly team that are genuinely passionate about creating beautiful brides''


Lovehair Courses and Workshops

Jo's love for creative hair styling has led to a passion for education and stylist development. You can now learn from Jo's experience and expertise. Lovehair is based in a working studio in Surrey, where Jo trains up and coming hair stylists and make up artists, teaching them the skills to get to where they want to go, be creative and grow their own freelance hair or make up business.
