The Royal Wedding Megan Markle

Velda Lauder @ Boys Hall

Wow, what an amazing day, spectacular and yet intimate… and one that the entire planet had the privilege to share with them. I don’t think anyone would deny that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are clearly made for each other, such beautiful, caring people and so in love.  There’s been so much talk about the dress, mixed reviews it seems,  it wasn’t what I expected or predicted, but it was an exquisitely cut, elegant, classy, an utterly perfect royal wedding dress that Meghan wore with grace and style.  I have to confess that my favourite dress of the day was the Stella McCartney gown for the evening reception, just stunning! The newly weds looked so charismatic as they drove off in that E-Type!!   

And so… into my arena… what did everyone think about the hair?  Obviously, as a bridal hair officianado, I had my own ideas pre-wedding about styles for Meghan, unfortunately I didn’t get this particular royal gig! Damn!!!    Yet again, there have been mixed reviews, some have criticised the messy bun for being a bit too relaxed as we witnessed it seemingly unravel a little throughout the day, but Serge Normant is not a favourite celebrity hairstylist for no reason, he is genuinely able to reflect the personality and mood of his superstar clients.  Let’s celebrate the fact that with this wedding, we have seen a break from tradition and formality throughout, from Harry’s beard, the exchange of wedding rings, the gospel choir, the informal bowl food, the list goes on and on… so actually, that messy updo may not have been to everyone’s taste, but it was on point for the cool, relaxed, self-confident royal that Meghan Markle has already proved herself to be.  

Personally, I would love to be let loose on lovely Meghan’s locks one day, I completely admire, respect and get her.  She would look gorgeous with a messy side bun with a hint of a chic vintage wave, it’s a style that would really compliment Meghan’s heart-shaped face… I hope she gets me too and I shall wait in hope for that royal summons!!  But until then, it’s been an exciting whirlwind of a week so far at vickilordhair.com.  I am blessed and grateful for the amazing new opportunities on the horizon of my bridal hair world!  Being a part of a brides wedding day is so special and I’m looking forward to working with some very special brides of my own later this year!   Thanks for dropping by and have a right, royally fabulous week yourselves!

A Whirlwind of Vintage Waves, Bridal Braves, Fabulous Braids, Super Features and Soon To Be Revealed Secrets… Shhhh!

Hello all, I’m so excited to report that things have been crazy busy in Vicki Lord Land… but in a good way!  I’ve had some lovely, talented students at the Vicki Lord Hair Academy on my recent Vintage Wave and Braiding courses, (they are now members of my Beautiful Hair Family of course!) And enquiries are coming thick and fast for the next ‘Vicki Lord Two-Day CPD Bridal Hair Course’.    I can’t put into words how much I enjoy passing on my knowledge and experience to other aspiring hair designers and seeing the buzz they get when they see the results they achieve – that, and styling my beautiful brides… I know that I’m one fortunate lady… can’t think of a better job to have.    It’s made all the more special when the love that goes into your work is recognised by the media, so I was over the moon to see that we got the front cover, a double page spread and a special ‘Editor’s mention’ in this month’s fabulous ‘Your Kent Bride’ magazine.  

I had such a great time on this shoot. It was a back to nature affair about pushing the boundaries and shaking up conventional ideas of how a bride should look.  

Kerry-Ann Duffy, our fantastic photographer, really embraced the theme with the gorgeous Preston Court and beach locations.  Helen Lee did an extraordinary job of the make-up and what can I say about our stunning models Jordan Martin and Meggie Lodge… in this case I think pictures speak louder than words!  

Thank you so much ‘Your Kent Wedding’ and I’m sad to hear that the lovely Editor ‘…..’ is leaving, everyone at Vicki Lord Hair wishes you happiness and in your next role, we know you’ll smash it! And we of course warmly welcome your successor.  I also have to give a big ‘shout out’ to Crystal Fairies in Birchington who supplied the beautiful dresses, Glitzy Secrets for the fantastic […]  and Balmain of course, for the glorious hair extensions. 

And watch this space, I’ve been on an exciting mission this week working with one of the world’s top photographers… Perou!!!!! It’s a bit ‘Hush, hush’ right now… but I think I might explode with anticipation… can’t wait to share with you.  Thanks for reading, catch up soon xxfullsizeoutput_2b57 fullsizeoutput_2b5d fullsizeoutput_2b63

New York Bridal Runway Wedding Dress Trends For 2018

By All About Hair, Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, News & Press, WeddingsNo Comments

vicki_detling_boho_edit4LRpsdBridal trends for 2018

Bridal dress trends for this year are a little more daring! As seen on the New York run ways last month! Brides now days are becoming much more fashion forward. I’m so excited to see some of my wonderful brides sporting such elaborate dresses.

Trends to look out for include; The more skin the better!, front splits, two pieces, capes, detachable skirts, semi-opaque lining, transparent fabrics, plunging necklines, open backs and 3D floral appliqué

Hair styles this year will be all about parallel Dutch braids still very much in keeping with Game of Thrones for those romantic boho brides. Try applying braiding hoops to your braids for an edgier style!

For the demure elegant brides, keep it shiny and slick straight hair, that’s tucked behind the ears aka Kim Kardashian!

The curly shag hair is a big look this year so I’m hoping my brides will take on a more Advant Guarde Afro approach to their curly locks of hair, big, big and more big curls!

To book your bridal hair please see my website at www.vickilordhair.com for more information.

Vicki Lord Teaches Bridal Hair

By Bridal HairNo Comments

1E0BB4EB-CAAE-47EF-8240-F6AFB2CF471BVicki Lord Bridal Hair Academy will be offering exciting new courses for 2018. From HABIA approved CPD hours in the Classic and Editorial Hair-Up to beginners courses. The multi-award winning hair expert and educator will help you develop your knowledge and equip you with excellent skills to utilise as a sound basis for hair ups.

The Common Challenge

To be able to teach my love of her is a real passion of mine. But I am fully aware that many opportunities go by due to a common problem. Either many hairdressers avoid hair-up or salons simply set aside little or no training time. Understandably this can be for business reasons or availability and opportunity of staff and/or trainers. Some decent salons will provide that extra training but this is not a common practice. However this is where the Vicki Lord Bridal Hair Academy can really help you all out!

Once you have mastered the basic techniques of hair up, this will boost your confidence length and develops your knowledge and skill set to pass on to your clients. I’ve been lucky enough to teach some wonderful students this year who’s business has gone from strength to strength since attending my Classic bridal and editorial course. for more information please see my Academy website link

‘Game Of Thrones’ Khaleesi inspired wedding hairstyle Kent

By Bridal Hair, WeddingsNo Comments

001(172)

Wedding hairstyle in Kent. I met this stunning bride Atina at Chilston Park bridal fair in Kent! Atina’s wedding theme was based on the Game of Thrones……! Being a avid fan of Game of Thrones I was delighted when she booked me to create wonder’s with her hair! It was an absolute dream to turn this hot lady into the Dragon Queen Khaleesi! I was given free reign of this lovely Bride to be’s hair as long as there were braids. With the help of some hair Balmain hair extensions, glitter ribbon, Batiste dry shampoo and Glizty Secret’s we came up with this braided look! I decided to create a hair style that was dressed to the side to complement Atina’s face shape and neckline of her beautiful wedding dress, I worked numerous dutch braids into her hair at the back and twisted them into a large braided Rose. Atina rocked this look and was an absolute dream to work with! Fabulous pictures were taken by http://www.lorna-elizabeth.co.uk/ and Make up by the talented www.makeupbynicola.co.uk
