Whatever the occasion, whatever the era and whatever your style… when it comes to a full-on, massive blow-dryed hairstyle, with super volume, it is a hair-do certain to make you look glamorous

And here is how to create the look in just ten steps…

Tools needed: Large and medium sized barrel round brush, vent brush, hairdryer, sectioning clips, back brush, full volume mousse, dry shampoo, and hairspray.

Hair length required: Medium to long

  1. Shampoo and condition hair, towel dry.
  2. Apply full volume mousse evenly through the roots to the ends of damp towel dried hair.
  3. Using a vent brush and a hairdryer on the part-dry hair until it is approx 80% dry, concentrating on the root area, wrap dry hair around the head to create as much root lift as possible.
  4. Work from the nape area taking horizontal sections of hair, wrap a section of hair around your round brush taking it up to the root area, blast with a a cold heat to set the curl.
  5. Unwind the hair with the brush in the opposite direction to create a curl.
  6. Now lift the curl back into a pin curl and pin the hair with a sectioning clip, allow to set.
  7. Repeat this process until you reach the crown area.
  8. For the crown and top of the head area, swap brushes to your large round brush, now blow dry hair once again by wrapping the hair round the brush and then clip to set.
  9. Once hair has cooled remove clips.
  10. Spray dry shampoo at the roots and back brush hair to create volume and style as desired.

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons Abroad Magazine featured Lucy Jayne, a multi-award winning bridal make-up artist I have worked with on shoots and for many weddings.

This is one of my favourite images from the spread – as it is perfect for the summer and for festival season… this boho style is pretty and striking for any #summer 2016 #bride.

For anybody who loves hair as much as I do, they would tell you that creating the perfect look for a bride on the best day of her life is extremely rewarding, as you know that you are adding a sparkle to her special occasion… And it is also lovely to hear back from the brides… here is a message from Becky, which I received after doing her beautiful intricate do…

Just like to say a huge thank you for doing my hair, I had so many lovely comments!! Saying it was amazing you truly are fantastic!! Also for helping me get into my dress!! Thank you again;o)  You truly are a star ;o) Becky xx”

Hayley sent me the following:

Dear Vicki,

I wanted to thank you again so much for doing such an amazing job on 30 April 2011! As you know from the trial, my hairstyle for the day was one of my biggest concerns and I cannot thank you enough for perservering and coming up with something really beautiful and unique. I was so pleased with it and received such lovely comments about the style. It was quite clear that you really had taken on board all of my comments/concerns/requests! Despite the wind (and a child stepping on the veil as I walked back up the aisle removing it from my head!!) the style remained in place all day!

I know that the girls were also delighted with their hairstyles, as was I – still amazed that you were able to create the same style for all three girls, especially given the length of Astrella’s natural hair!

Your styling really is a work of art, you have an amazing creative flare, a love for what you do and teamed with your desire to achieve perfection this really comes across in the finished article! I am so very glad that I booked with you because I know that no one else would have been able to create something for me that I loved and felt 110% comfortable with! Thank you very much – you made me one very happy bride!

Take care
Hayley xx”


“I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you again to my wonderful hairy godmother for giving myself and my bridesmaid such beautiful hair on my wedding day. You did an amazing job and I can’t thank you enough. Your brill sense of humour also helped to keep the pre wedding jitters away. I will send you some wedding pictures from our photographer soon. If we make it into an issue of wedding ideas magazine we’ll send you a copy as well. Thanks again, love Amanda :)”
