It was a great weekend at The Wedding Fair… with weeks of prepping, and then setting up the stand on the Friday, I literally was raring to go to meet some wonderful brides-to-be at London ExCel… Thanks to the V-Team members for getting up so early so that we could fulfil the event organiser’s brief for the models’ hair. As the official backstage hairdressers for the bridal runway shows we had a busy couple of days… We curled the hair with Balmain tones, attached Balmain extensions, and used Balmain dry shampoo to ensure the hairstyle complemented the theme of the show and the stunning dresses.
It was lovely to meet so many brides planning for their big day… and I’m looking forward to working with them in 2017 and 2018.
Each bride booking with the V-Team at the show received a luxury Vicki Lord black goody bag with a discounts and products from: Ogario, Orange Rabbit Cakes, Kelli Waldock Make-up, Favour Fairy, Glitzy Secrets, County Wedding Magazines, Base Formula, the Rock Pins, Lyndsey Goddard Photography, Star Bride Films, and Pro Hair & Beauty Magazine… Thank you!
Here is a discount code for Ogario VLHAIR to be used on their website (http://www.ogariolondon.com) between January 18th and February 28th 2017. I will also be presenting on QVC this coming weekend about these products – so ensure you tune in.

I have worked with the lovely Anna Williamson on a number of occasions, and this hair do for her presenter gig looked great… but I had such a small amount of time to achieve it, and it really is amazing how a simple ponytail with a sixty edge can have red carpet appeal. The side parting and folds add to the glamour, and bringing the ponytail around to one side ensures that the camera gets a glimpse of the hairdo, which sets off Anna’s pretty face and the yellow retro mini dress, I created added thickness with a Balmain hairpiece. This is a nice hairdo for an event or perfect for bridesmaids.
You can see the look one minute into Anna Williamson’s presenting showreel on her YouTube channel:
You probably all know exactly how much I love Balmain, and my brides do too… not to mention the celebrities I have worked with. And this time last year I was very pleased to share that I was officially appointed the Balmain Bridal Hair Specialist… and I’ve loved every minute of working with the brand, including presenting on their stage at Pro Hair Live in 2016… I am excited to see what collaborations we will be enjoying in 2017.
Do we have Crazy Hair Day in the UK? Well, they do in America… and as a Christmas gift, I wanted to share this video and just found it hair-larious… I mean hilarious! Quite effective result though, but I am proud to say that my sculptures are a little bit more sophisticated… but I am all for supporting other lovers of hair and hair professionals… and for any parents out there, this is great fun for any dressing up occasions… although my girls would probably cry if I turned them into a Christmas Tree… Enjoy… and do send in any photos if you attempt this at home!

It was a great shoot, working with Darren Brade, Kelli Waldock and Marc Dressen this week… he is wearing Castore clothing, and looks fab… this video shows how much fun you can have on a shoot – until my PR and creative director of the shoot cracked the whip… Looking forward to seeing the photos and here is a behind the scenes of the day:
Check out the gorgeous online article featuring my how-to/tutorials on these lovely hairstyles. I had so much fun on this shoot date, with fab creatives: I used lots of Batiste dry shampoo to achieve these looks, and before styling I attached Balmain hair extensions… to add length and volume and to give more hair to work my magic with.

I thought I’d also show you this fab look… it is perfect for a wild and funky do for an spooky party this October… but it’s sexy too!
So to check out how to achieve this look that I styled for L’oreal, and it appeared on Marie Clare’s website.
I was invited to work with QVC for seven of their shows, talking about the wonderful T3 hairdryer, that I have tried and tested on my own hair, as well as on friends’, family members’ hair and of course my clients… Check out one of the shows on the QVC website: CLICK HERE.
