As a hairdresser, it can be hard to trust your hair in the hands of someone else! Coupled with the fact that a vintage cut is very specific and not something all modern stylists ‘get’, it has meant that for the last few months I’ve been trimming my own hair in the shower!
It was time for me to see someone else as my hair desperately needed a reshape and since Lucie Luella guest spots at Hula in London once a month (she’s got her own salon in Manchester called I love Lucie), I knew that this was the perfect opportunity!
Lucie not only has fantastic styling skills but she’s also a talented colourist and cutter. As someone who is into the vintage style herself, she knows how to best cut the hair for the ultimate vintage set.
A lot of you will have heard of the ‘Middy’ haircut which is a classic cut method from the 40s and 50s. In reality, this haircut is actually so super layered that there’s no way I (or most other ladies) would actually want a true middy. So, Lucie gave me her variation of it!
My ends were feeling pretty dry so she took about 1.5-2″ off the back but much more through the front to give me that classic horseshoe or ‘U’ shape. She added a long layer through the back which helps with enhancing the curls when set without becoming too choppy and then set my hair with curling tongs before brushing it out in a glorious pageboy style.
My hair feels so much better for having a decent cut and it was so fun to be a client in a salon for once and have a good old natter with Lucie!
I thought it would be fun to ask Lucie Luella 10 quick-fire questions because she’s such a fun, interesting lass!
Hot Sauce. I swear I have to bring my own to a restaurant just in case they are out!
If you’d like to have your hair done by Lucie Luella, you can visit her in Manchester at I Love Lucie or at Hula Nails in London once a month.
