Have a Smashing Easter with this YOLKY hair mask…

Well, Easter is approaching and it is an important time for many… And eggs-actly (sorry couldn’t resist hehehe) a year ago today, I had a my egg mask recipe published on the Holistic Therapist Magazine website

When it comes to hair – there is one person that knows pretty much everything there is to know about it – the care, the look, the styles, the colour and how to make a hair mask from raw eggs… Here is celebrity Session Stylist, Vicki Lord’s recipe for shiny locks, and all in time for Easter – what an egg-cellent idea!

“Okay let’s get cracking!…

This is such an easy way to add shine and lustre to your locks… And it is a recipe for your hair not to eat! ALL hair types can use this too… Use one to three eggs (depending on your hair length) – and crack them in a bowl. It is best that they are room temperature! Whisk, or stir and add the same number of spoonfuls of olive oil as eggs (so if you are using two eggs then two spoonfuls) – you can use coconut oil as well as or instead of olive oil – and then mix it all together. It is advised to stand in the shower or sit in the bath and apply to dry hair – as it can be a little messy! You want to leave the mixture on for ten to twenty minutes – maybe with a shower cap to keep the dripping to a minimum, and then rinse with cool water first, and then shampoo as usual.”

That is a great way to use raw eggs this Easter… but it is fun to eat eggs too… so why not treat yourself to a healthy, hearty breakfast of soldiers and dippy egg… YUM! Photo above…

Have a GOOD Friday and Smashing Easter… Okay I will stop with the hot cross puns! Vicki x

great dry shampoo

Loving Batiste Dry Shampoo!

I love working with dry shampoo! It helps create so much volume and thickness to the hair! Batiste is a fab brand, because it doesn’t just do dry shampoo, but it really does dry shampoo – and for different needs: brunette hair, blonde hair, dark hair, light hair, for refreshing hair and for extra volume – so you can go serious bouffant.

The bottles are funky, somehow a futuristic mixed with retro feel – and easy to hold and apply too!

Much of my work involves styling hair into up dos… and I do tend to spray dry shampoo at the root area to give the hair extra height and staying power! And as mentioned above, I so love the fact that the Batiste range is available in different colours, so I can really cater for all of my clients.

Recently, one of my clients was considering buying and regularly wearing a wig as her hair is so fine and limp, but now that I’ve introduced her to Batiste dry shampoo, the wig is just a distant memory!

Batiste is a permanent part of my hair kit ;o)

Mini Me

Both my daughters have had their share in front of the camera- and I guess they must get their love for this industry from me, and from my mum too. My little model daughter Ellie had a shoot last week – and she just loved every moment… I must say I was very proud of her… here are a few snaps I took:

Drama Magazine with Tamla Kari

When it comes to the world of fashion there is no shortage of drama, and so working on a shoot with the absolutely stunning actress Tamla Kari for Drama magazine was right up my street. Styled by the amazing Kelvin Barron, and shot my fantastic photographer Andrew Hiles, I knew the day would be filled with drama in a fabulous way!! I adored working with Tamla, her features are so dainty and classic – this vintage hairdo was perfect for her face, the styling and the set. Check out the images below… and other vintage looks on: VickiLord.co.uk.
