Hair Competition (part 2) 1940’s Autumn hair


My last post was about the Christmas hair Competition, so I thought I’d just let you know about our latest competition,

the theme was “The Seasons”. I chose Autumn, I must admit Summer is my favorite month by a mile, but I do love the Autumn sun, and the colours of the leaves in Autumn

I also chose to put my spin on the hairstyle 😉 and went for a Vintage 1940s style with Victory Rolls at the front and designed a cute row of vertical rolls at the back and then added a hair slide I made with some decorative acorns, toadstools, feathers etc

Aaaaaaaand…………….. I won 1st Prize!!

I created this look by curling all the hair first with tongs, the two front sections that created the victory rolls were curled back away from the face, and the back all curled in the same direction with the tong held vertically, which helped create the rolls at the back

The rolls were created by twisting them around my index finger and rolling them in towards the scalp, then securing with grips and hairspray

Hope you like it! 🙂

oh and before I finish, here’s the mood board I had to do first, to present my inspirations and materials I was going to use.


Thanks for reading!!

Have a lovely weekend



Christmas Hair Project

Hey readers,

As some of you may know I started officially training as a hairdresser in September I’ve always done friends, families and my own hair, but never had any qualifications to do it professionally

Its going really well, and I’m a third of the way in

As of yesterday we have broke up for Christmas, but before we broke up we had a Christmas Hair up Project / Competition

we had to do a mood board and design and create a Christmas up do, I decided on a halo braid around the head, and to dress it like a Christmas wreath, with greenery, Poinsettias and battery operated fairy lights

the most difficult part was hiding the battery pack for the fairy lights :\

well, anyway here is my mood board….


…..and here is the finished piece….


I only wish I could do this to my own hair!!

Merry Christmas !!!


Rochester Vintage Wedding Fair

Heya! Readers,
Well, I was asked recently to help out with the hair at The Rochester Vintage Wedding Fair last Saturday
 I spent some of my Friday night perfecting my Victory Rolls and wedding hair / updos, hoping this is what I would get a chance to do..
But……. some of the models pulled out at the last minute or just didn’t show up on the day
so friends and family were pulled into strut their stuff in a wedding dress
unfortunately for me, a lot of them had too shorter hair for victory rolls and up dos, or didn’t want their hair up (headache!)
Still, it all went smoothly and I have a couple of photos to share with you…..
They all looked beautiful



#RedHairDontCare / La Riche Directions Poppy Red hair colour / colour blow dry and finish / hairdressing training

Hey! how you all doing??quick post here to show you what I done in college last week

I had my first ‘client’ as such
The beautiful Ellie came in to have have her hair dyed using La Riche Directions shade: Poppy Red
then blown out smooth using a little serum and a large round brush
then just a little twisting of the ends with the flat irons
I think she looks stunning (even if I do say so myself )
What do you think?
So just a little update….. Ellie came in again when this red had washed out and we tried Crazy Color: Fire
and here is the outcome…
Before                   After
Before and After Crazy Color
I applied the colour to the roots first this time then went through and did mid length to ends, as the Directions colour we used last time, didn’t take as well on the roots. This time the colour was lovely and bright and even
I would recommend either of these colours
here’s the products themselves
