perfect hair


The Great Gatsby

Who doesn’t like The Great Gatsby?  The book takes you to a place of decadence and sexiness… and that movie with Leo DiCaprio just oozes 1920s fashion… the hair is gorgeous… you can check out some images on the Warner Bros website: CLICK.

And I just love doing vintage hair dos… So when I got to work with the absolutely stunning Mandy Capristo for a Gatsby event, naturally I was super excited… and here are a couple of snaps…

Sophie was a flower of a bride

It’s mid way through bridal season now – and so I am super busy, which, I must say, I am very lucky to be a busy bee helping brides-to-be looking even more stunning on their wedding day.

A recent bride, the beautiful Sophie, chose a simple, yet elegant dress, and so we were able to really add some colour to her hair with stunning flowers. This is a lovely choice and something I have blogged about before… adding colour with flowers and hair-pieces.

What makes my job even more rewarding is the response from brides like Sophie… yes it feels great to know that I have done a good job, but it is more than this for me.. hair is like art and the bride is the masterpiece that I get to add to… and to know that I have personally added to the joy of her day is brilliant… in fact it is AMAZE-BALLS!

It was a pleasure to be part of Sophie’s day and she really did look every inch the princess – read the moving email she wrote me below, and to read more about her day at Preston Court head to the photographer’s blog. (Feature image taken and cropped from Kerrie Mitchell’s blog).

Hi Vicki, Mrs Sophie Spooner here!!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my hair look so amazing on my wedding day! The bridesmaids all looked so beautiful too, we are so grateful! It was honestly exactly what I had always wanted, and more – it looked incredible and so many people commented on how amazing it looked – it was a real conversation piece and made me feel like a princess 🙂 people continued to comment on it all day! It lasted all day long, and the flowers stayed immaculately fresh so thank you for doing such a super job! I only wish you could do my hair everyday!

Also, it was a real pleasure to have you around on my wedding morning; your calm yet assertive nature was very reassuring and you really went above and beyond to help make everything perfect! I will certainly be recommending you to everyone I know, and hope that in the future I have an occasion for which you can style my hair again!

We really did I have the most incredible, magical wedding day and I am already looking back at the pictures in disbelief – I cant believe that was me with that incredible hair!!

Many thanks and best wishes
Sophie Spooner
