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!

‘Game Of Thrones’ Khaleesi inspired wedding hairstyle Kent

By Bridal Hair, Weddings No Comments

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

#Throwback!  I loved working with the fabulous Summer Strallen a few years ago now! I created a side classic curly bun with height at the front and a subtle sweep to the side. To create more depth and curl to the bun I added Balmain hair extensions. This hairstyle is so classic yet timeless so even though this image was taken in 2013 the hairstyle is still very elegant and current. #redcarpet #balmain #besthair #vickilord

What do you think of this style? It took twenty minutes, but I think it’s super effective and has lovely detail.

When doing a corporate event with many clients, time is limited, and everyone wants to look stunning – and at this Christmas event at Kingsley Naples they really did…

I was of course super prepped with dry shampoo – Batiste of course, and spray… these up-dos need re-enforcing when they are created quickly.

#Bridal Trends Spring Summer 2017

By Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, Weddings No Comments

With bridal season much upon us, and my consultations being back to back, I thought I’d share two trends for bridal hair in 2017:

1) Soft curly ponytails, dressed to one side will be a key trend for 2017. These voluminous ponies look effortlessly romantic. Bride Lisa Davies’ hairstyle was secured with a Balmain pony and lots of Batiste dry shampoo, which meant it stood up to the wind, so this style is perfect for outdoor venues.

2) Boho trends are so versatile, and vintage-boho is definitely going to continue throughout 2017. Bride Hannah’s messy crown area with loose curls is classic, but by adding a structured vintage finger wave I adapted it into a show-stopping twist. The bridesmaids have unique styles tied in with a themed braid, including the adapted braided mohawk, which is edgy and modern. These boho styles are catered for the individual face-shapes and personalities of each bridesmaid.

Seaside #Wedding Ceremony

By Hair Tips & Tutorials, Weddings No Comments

Even with the unpredictable weather, brides still opt to tie the knot on the beach… and when they do, they have to ensure they choose a hairstyle that is going to look great despite a breeze or a little bit of rain, or indeed the arm sunshine.

This is one of my brides and she opted for a braided boho style with fresh flowers…

Boho hairstyles work great with the great outdoors and great British weather, because they are messy, undone or purposely pulled out in places, and so a little help from the wind is fine. It is still very important to secure the hair with grips and using a good hairspray.

Batiste dry shampoo is fab for adding volume that will having staying power in the warmer weather too.

#IamChiChi Advert

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)
