-- As a businesswoman and session stylist with 25 years experience styling celebrities' hair, brides' hair and working at shows and on TV, Vicki Lord has been writing for fashion, beauty and bridal magazines for a couple of years and has decided to dedicate some time inbetween her busy schedule to post regular tutorials and inspirational hair tips for website visitors and clients. Vicki says: "It is so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the schedule of a session stylist, and I do love it, but it is my clients that make it all happen and so I want to give them as many hair tips as possible, so I am putting more time in to my blog.”
