By Hair Tips & Tutorials No Comments

french pleatSTEP BY STEP HOW TO CREATE THE CLASSIC FRENCH PLEAT
This look is stunning – it is a perfect fusion between classic and boho… I love it!

  1. Set hair with large barrel tong and clip in place to set
  2. Once hair has cooled remove clips and brush through
  3. Section hair from top of ear to the opposite ear and isolate the hair front section – placing it forward
  4. Now back brush root area of rest of the hair at the back
  5. Smooth outer sides of hair using your soft bristle brush
  6. Dress hair over to one side and apply hair grips vertically, central to the back of head
  7. With the remaining hair, roll back over the gripped hair gently to create a pleat
  8. Secure pleat in place with hair pins
  9. Now dress the isolated front hair back into the pleat creating height at the top
  10. Secure in place with hair grips AND your Classic French pleat is complete

#ThrowbackThursday Leighton from The Voice 2016

By All About Hair No Comments

vicki-lord-hairdresserWhen I was asked to style Leighton’s hair from BBC’s The Voice, overa  year ago now (wow time flies) – I had lots of ideas in mind…particularly those that required a drastic chop… But I wasn’t surprised that Leighton decided against me taking the scissors to his locks… It takes a long time to grow hair, and once you find a style that feels like ‘you’, then it is really difficult to make a change… So I decided to tidy the do up instead, and gave it a well-needed trim… The colour looks golden now that there is a definite style, and the natural wave lifts Leighton’s features…

What do you think of the before and after?
