It was amazing to be asked, not just to look after HRH the Duchess, but her bridal party as well. The great thing about the whole event was that it was very much a team effort, and very uplifting for everybody associated with our company; not just on the day, but the whole build up and in many years to follow.
Like any bride, many ideas were thrown into the mix. There are so many considerations to take into account, before you finally arrive at the final look.
To get the blow dry, use Velcro rollers with clips, a real bristle Shine Angel brush, a good strong hairdryer with nozzle and my Chelsea collection Anti-Ageing Argan Elixir on the mid-lengths to the ends.
1.Hair must be blow dried from 75–80 per cent wet.
2.Products, for example serum or root-lifting sprays must be applied evenly throughout the hair – the best way is to turn your head upside down, apply in small amounts and repeat. Remember less is more!
3.When taking the moisture out, rough dry in a controlled way, lifting and heating roots with your fingers.
4.Always use a real bristle brush.
5.A good, strong hairdryer and a nozzle is ALWAYS a must.
6.When using Velcro rollers, make sure they are firmly in place and secured with a clip, so the all-important root lift stays in place.
The ‘Lob’ is already huge, inspired by HRH’s new haircut. Sleek hair is making a big comeback, and short crops (if you’re that brave). At the moment there’s a real mix between highly groomed hair and a more natural, undone look.
Yes, I have won many awards, including Salon of the Year, Celebrity Hairdresser of the Year, London Hairdresser of the Year and I’ve been nominated as British Hairdresser of the Year six times! The highlight would definitely be my first nomination as British Hairdresser of the Year. I’ve also had many nominations for my Chelsea Collection range of products and our brush brand, Tangle Angel.
Nicole Kidman – she always looks so incredibly groomed, and that is the look that’s closest to my heart!
