A SEDGLEY hairdresser has been headhunted to be the official hairstylist for the National Wedding Show.

Tisch Townley and her team will help would-be brides find wedding look inspiration by styling the models before they hit the catwalk when the national event returns to Birmingham at the end of this month.

The 38-year-old said she was amazed when she received the call to say she had been chosen for the prestigious role.

Tisch told the News: “The director of the wedding show saw my work and loved what I do. I was completely overwhelmed. It’s a big thing in the wedding calendar.

“I’m preparing by getting lots and lots of hairspray! I’m going to keep on doing what I’m doing and make sure the girls look fantastic.”

The mother-of-five turned freelance four years ago and travels around the country to make brides look beautiful for their big day.

She has travelled as far as Cornwall and the Lake District from her home in Sedgley to make sure brides look their best and she says she absolutely loves her job.

Tisch is no stranger to success- last November she was crowned best hair and make up specialist at the English Wedding Awards.

The National Wedding Show takes place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham from February 29 to March 1.
