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!

#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.

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons Abroad Magazine featured Lucy Jayne, a multi-award winning bridal make-up artist I have worked with on shoots and for many weddings.

This is one of my favourite images from the spread – as it is perfect for the summer and for festival season… this boho style is pretty and striking for any #summer 2016 #bride.
