‘The Low Rider’ Shoot with Huf Magazine.

By All About Hair No Comments

I throughly enjoyed working on this shoot. The collection is inspired and based on Harley Davidson motorbike parts. I originally had the idea to re create motorbike parts into hair back at art college in my younger years, so it was delight to build that vision out with this shoot.

The whole collection took me months to make, with the help of my dad and his angle grinder and many trips to Halfords we nailed it!  I’m so proud of what the team and I managed to create.

Wear hair higher, wider, and intricate; wear garments tighter and buckle up; there’s no need for delicate when you’re a low rider…”You come to a point in your life when you really don’t care what people think about you, you just care what you think about yourself.” Evel Knievel (1938-2007)

New York Bridal Runway Wedding Dress Trends For 2018

By All About Hair, Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, News & Press, Weddings No Comments

vicki_detling_boho_edit4LRpsdBridal trends for 2018

Bridal dress trends for this year are a little more daring! As seen on the New York run ways last month! Brides now days are becoming much more fashion forward. I’m so excited to see some of my wonderful brides sporting such elaborate dresses.

Trends to look out for include; The more skin the better!, front splits, two pieces, capes, detachable skirts, semi-opaque lining, transparent fabrics, plunging necklines, open backs and 3D floral appliqué

Hair styles this year will be all about parallel Dutch braids still very much in keeping with Game of Thrones for those romantic boho brides. Try applying braiding hoops to your braids for an edgier style!

For the demure elegant brides, keep it shiny and slick straight hair, that’s tucked behind the ears aka Kim Kardashian!

The curly shag hair is a big look this year so I’m hoping my brides will take on a more Advant Guarde Afro approach to their curly locks of hair, big, big and more big curls!

‘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

This look is stunning – it is a perfect fusion between classic and boho… I love it!

  1. Set hair with large barrel tong and clip in place to set
  2. Once hair has cooled remove clips and brush through
  3. Section hair from top of ear to the opposite ear and isolate the hair front section – placing it forward
  4. Now back brush root area of rest of the hair at the back
  5. Smooth outer sides of hair using your soft bristle brush
  6. Dress hair over to one side and apply hair grips vertically, central to the back of head
  7. With the remaining hair, roll back over the gripped hair gently to create a pleat
  8. Secure pleat in place with hair pins
  9. Now dress the isolated front hair back into the pleat creating height at the top
  10. Secure in place with hair grips AND your Classic French pleat is complete

T3 mint green Vicki Lord

#QVC T3 Compact Hairdryer in Mint Green

By News & Press No Comments

If you’ve not seen it yet, please check out a short clip of me talking about the fab T3 hairdryer here:

I love the colour of this product and I even matched my toe nail varnish to the mint green of this super convenient, super stylish hairdryer. I love my Karen Millen dress too, because it is such a flattening cut and the thick black straps break up the bright colours on the dress and the bright copper tones of my hair.

20-minute updo @KingsleyNaples #corporate hair

By All About Hair, News & Press No Comments

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.
