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

‘Game Of Thrones’ Khaleesi inspired wedding hairstyle Kent

By Bridal Hair, Weddings No 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

#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

 

 

 

Bridal Hair Flowers Stylist Kent

#Flowers in the #Hair

By Hair Tips & Tutorials No Comments

As requested from my previous post here is some more info on flowers as hair accessories:

Modern brides are really loving the flower look these days… And we are talking fresh flowers… so here are the best flowers that I’ve worked with on bridal looks…
1)Orchids (my personal favourite),
2)Daisies,
3)Freesia,
4)Stephanotis
5) wax flower,
6) spray roses,
7) baby’s breath,
8) Ivy
9) Peony
10)Crysthanamum

TOP TIP: The Bride’s florist must choose flowers that are in full bloom, so the petals are fully open. Otherwise if the flower is still in a bud shape, it will look very awkward and protrude out of the hairstyle! It’s important to have the loose flowers on a wired stem to make it easier to secure into the hairstyle.

Boho Inspiration

By Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials No Comments

I love that my purpose is to help brides on the most magical day of their life… what a wonderful job I have – I am so lucky being able to work with brides like the ladies on this page…

  1. This floaty hairstyle complements the floaty boho dress, which also has a vintage vibe.
  2. This up-do allows the bride to still show of her back, even though she has a veil.
  3. This up-do has a neatness to it, but the loops and braid, combined with fresh flowers adds the boho inspiration.
