I’ve started a Hair Clinic on my youtube channel… working with models or friends and demonstrating achievable hairstyles for you to do yourself or on somebody else…
Below is the rope braid tutorial, and as you can see it is long before Megan gets the hang of it. It looks great just as a braid in itself, or to create more detailed looks.
- Pop hair in a ponytail,
- Separate the hair into two sections,
- Then twist one section in one direction, and the second section in the opposite direction and then wrap,
- Continue with this pattern all the way to the end of the hair and then secure with a band.
This year I have continued to work with Balmain as their Bridal Hair Specialist, and I was also the official backstage hair partner for the Wedding Fair in Excel London in January.
It is really great to be consider a hair expert… thank you and please also read trends for brides 2017 on Amara website, under wedding experts.
I’m really please to share that a shoot I did has been published in County Wedding Magazines, including Your London Wedding and Your Kent Wedding… pick your copy up… here is the spread:

It was great to work with the #Esimbi team during London Fashion Week 2017 at One Whitehall Place in London… the venue was grand, and a lovely way to celebrate the first year anniversary of the social enterprise that supports the education in Congo.
It particularly supports arts and as an artistic and creative person myself I really feel this is important, especially for children that do not have opportunities that we have in modern society.
I have worked with Tina before, when dressing Shona McGarty for the red carpet. And it was great to come on board to support this important cause.
With most fashion shows that are not Avant-garde or hair shows, the designer usually requests that the hair is the same on all models, this is done to create a theme or a story and also so that the clothes are complemented, but that the hair is not a distraction.
The look was a sleek centre parting and a low ponytail in the nape of the neck, then a braid… I opted for a fishtail braid and pulled it out slightly to create an intricate but undone vibe… this suits Tina’s designs for this collection, which are elegant and floating fabrics mixed with trendy or edgy designs including a t-shirt and sweatshirt.
My V-team worked on ten girls brilliantly under the time pressure, and you can see some of the behind the scenes shots below.
You can find out more about Esimbi and the work Tina does on Esimbi.org.
