About Us

Birmingham’s Leading Hair, Photographic & Makeover Studio

Located in the heart of Birmingham City Centre’s thriving Colmore Row business district, Love It! Studios is a leading contemporary hair, makeover and photographic studio.

Our talented team of hair stylists, make-up artists and photographers create beautiful magazine style photos in fabulously chic surroundings. In a relaxed and welcoming environment you will spend the day being pampered and glammed up before being turned into a model for the day and captured on film forever.

Whether you want a stunning portfolio, a family portrait, a couples shoot, a fun photo with your friends or a sexy boudoir shoot we’re here to capture them all.

We’re unique in that we have our very own separate hair salon; so unlike other photographic studios we don’t just curl your hair; we cut it, colour it, highlight it, style it, shape it – you name it!

So whether you just want to come into the salon for a hair cut, get a makeover for a night out or have a full photoshoot we can do any one on its own or for the perfect experience why not combine all three and make it a day to remember!

Hair

On the Cutting Edge

Our contemporary hair salon offers clients the ultimate hair experience in the heart of the city centre’s business district. Whether you want an up-do for a glamorous event, a cut and blow dry for everyday; or a colour to liven up your lack lustre locks our talented team of hair stylists will help create the perfect look for you. Our team also includes specialists in afro Caribbean hair.

Open from 8am till 8pm 7 days a week, we are here for busy professionals where time is precious and hair appointments need to be squeezed in before work, after work, or even in your lunch hour (if such a thing exists these days!).

Make-Up

Flawless Finish

Our team of make-up artists are trained to give you the perfect flawless look for your photoshoot, a special event, wedding or even just a girls night out on the town.

Following a cleanse, tone and moisturize your make-up artist will do a thorough consultation with you and cater your look to the event in question; giving you hints and tips along the way on how to recreate the look yourself at home.

Our Glam & Go’s are perfect to get you ready for a night out without having to lift a finger; or try our one-to-one make-up lessons to learn all the tricks of the trade. Either way with Love It! Studios there is no excuse not to look fabulous every day of the week!

Photography

Strike A Pose

Our team of professional photographers are here to turn you into a model for the day. After a personalised consultation to find out what style of photos you require from your session the photographer will then go through your outfits with you to pick out your perfect looks.

After that they will take you on set and create a variety of different looks and styles with you in centre frame. Creating a portfolio of sophisticated, fun, funky, beautiful, sexy and stunning shots you’ll see yourself like never before. And don’t worry no one likes posing for the camera (apart from maybe Kate Moss that is!) but our photographers will make you feel so at ease you’ll actually be disappointed when he/she shouts “it’s a wrap!”

And if you have no idea what look you’d like to go for that’s fine too – our experts are on hand to recommend and advise the best options tailored to you.

PSSST!

We also do mini photoshoots for those wanting an amazing profile photo for Facebook, Linked In, dating site or even just your own screen saver! In today's world of social media we have to make sure we all look as good as we can as you never know who’s checking you out!

FAQ

MORE ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE

Do you have a proper hair salon or do you just do dry-styles?
Yes Love It! Hair is a leading city centre hair salon that does everything you expect from a typical hair salon. Our hairdressers are all fully trained and have between 5-15 years’ experience each in hairdressing. Our salon is a stand-alone business and we’re unique in that we’re one of the only photographic & makeover studios in Birmingham to have its own separate hair salon. This means we can give you a total make over before your photoshoot. See the hair section of the website for a list of all of our services.
Can I buy a photoshoot gift voucher for someone else?
Yes we have a range of gift vouchers you can purchase for yourself or as a gift for someone else. Please see the ‘Packages’ section of the website to see what vouchers we have available. Simply call the booking office on 0845 647 1000 to purchase a voucher and we will post it out to you.
How long will my photoshoot experience last?
Please allow 4-6 hours for your makeover & photoshoot experience from start to finish; from having your hair dry styled or wash, cut and blow dried, to make-up application, to your photoshoot right through to viewing your photo's at the end.
How many outfits can I bring?
You may have 3 outfit changes for the actual shoot. Feel free to bring more options as the photographer will advise as to what outfits will work best, and also what will compliment your friends/partners clothing.
What style of photography do you do?
We do everything from fashion shoots, to family, to funky to professional. We have a variety of sets and lighting to capture a range of effects to best suit your requirements. So whether you want something clean and crisp or loud and funky we can tailor it to suit you.
What’s the difference between a Deluxe and a Fashion Makeover & Photoshoot experience?
A Deluxe makeover experience includes a wash, cut and blow-dry in our hair salon, whereas a Fashion makeover experience includes a dry style hair service (so please arrive with clean hair). Both include professional make-up application and a photoshoot.
How long does it take for delivery of my photographs.
Any photographs ordered will be delivered to your home within 3-4 weeks. Canvas, glass or framed products will take longer and any images purchased in digital format can be taken away on the day on CD.
Why do I have to pay a booking fee?
For all photoshoot experiences we charge a £25 per person (weekdays) and £50 per person (weekends) booking fee. This is fully refundable if you turn up on the day on time, but forfeited if you don’t turn up or are over 15 mins late for your scheduled appointment. As we book a hair stylist, make-up artist, photographer and viewer for you and your party we hope you can appreciate that if you don’t turn up we still have to pay those costs so your booking fee would go towards covering those costs incurred by us.
Is there parking nearby?
Yes there is on-street parking right outside the door – but limited to 2hrs at a time. The best parking options are Snow Hill Station which has a multi storey car park or Great Charles Street car park, an open air car park across the road on the other side of Great Charles Queensway. See map on Contact Us page for further details.
How far are you from New Street or Snow Hill Train Stations?
We are approx. 10 min walk from both train stations (see Directions pdf on Contact Us page)
Do you have payment plans?
Yes we have a variety of options to pay. You can pay on the day or you can pay over 2, 3, 6 or 12 months so you can budget according to your finances with much smaller monthly payments.
Can I buy the make-up you use on the day?
Yes we use a London brand called New CID Cosmetics which are all available to purchase in the salon/studio.
Do you have disabled access?
We can cater for disabled customers. Please discuss your requirements at the time of booking so we can accommodate you properly.
Do you have Terms & Conditions for the photoshoot experiences?
Yes we have full Terms & Conditions on all of our photoshoot experiences which are printed on the back of each individual voucher. General Terms & Conditions are stated on the footer of this website. Please read before attending your experience day.
What are your opening hours?
We are open from 8am-8pm 7 days a week to cater for not only the photography side of the business, but also for working professionals who wish to use the hair salon before, after or during work. Our booking office is open 10am-6pm.
