Since lockdown began due to the global coronavirus pandemic, events, holidays, and weddings have all since been cancelled. An estimated 64,000 weddings have been postponed or cancelled so far in the UK; however, some couples have decided to elope rather than postpone their celebrations. Now, while elopement takes out a lot of planning hassle that comes with throwing a large wedding, it comes with its own challenges, too, and that includes the hair and makeup.
Unlike regular weddings where the bride might have both a hair and a makeup artist helping them get glammed up, if you're eloping (especially due to COVID-19), you likely won't have a professional helping you out on the day. But luckily, if Hollywood-style waves were what you'd hoped for, hairstylist Mara Roszak — who has worked with the likes of Billie Eilish, Zoe Saldana, and Cara Delevingne — is on hand to help from afar to give you the tips and products to make sure you have the best

OR you can also reach me directly for one on one advice," she posted on her Instagram feed — which was originally posted on her TikTok — along with a photo of the beautiful hairstyle.
