Advice for Brides Episode 2 on #LoveTalkTV

By Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, News & Press No Comments

I really enjoy working with brides because they are all different, and some brides are not always sure about what it is they want from their hair – so I, as the Hairy Godmother offer exactly that on my show for LoveTalk TV on Sky…. if you have missed it, don’t worry they add the episodes to YouTube too!

In the episode below I help my bride-to-be choose her hairstyle to suit her dress choices… I absolutely love the transformation of the use of a Balmain clip-in fringe on the boho look!

Watch it here… and be inspired for your special day.

#IamChiChi Advert

By News & Press No Comments

Here is the advert I styled hair on recently for ChiChi London… it was a long day at a beautiful venue and a hard working team: It just proves how much work goes into a short commercial… I suggested my mohawk to the producer and director when they said they wanted an outstanding hairdo… I achieved very quickly due to time pressures – which, is expected on-set sometimes – and i used Balmain hair pieces and Batiste dry shampoo… if you have not seen the advert yet… here it is:  (Thanks to Damien, one of the V-team who supported me)

Rope Braid #HairTutorial

By News & Press No Comments

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.

#Esimbi Fashion Show during #LFW2017 for Tina Lobondi

By All About Hair, News & Press No Comments

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.

Marc Dressen Sportsman

@MarcDressenPT hair for photoshoot

By All About Hair, News & Press No Comments

It was a lot of fun working on this shoot – but Marc’s hair was stubborn and whilst it is short needed a lot of attention… The aim was to have a relaxed, messy look from some of the images, and a style then that would show movement in the breeze for the outside shots taken on the roof top at Jump Studio… I then created a completed slick back look on Marc, which as you can see, makes him look very different, and is ideal to suit the black zipper jacket, which is by a sports designer: Castore.co.uk. We had a little bit of fun with the final look, where Kelli Waldock did some stronger contouring make-up and I added copper… I love the effect of this.
