After yesterday’s post on embracing the beauty in ageing, it seems an appropriate moment to mention the fabulous Nichollette Yardley Moore. I have the BIGGEST case of hair envy over the curly white-grey locks of Nichollette, Liberty department store’s accessory saleswoman and founder of Vintage Cushions.
Drifting through Liberty last week on the way to smell the new Dries Van Noten perfume, I was absolutely bowled over by Nichollette’s lovely hair and fabulous style. She had clipped her naturally curly locks up into an exotic top-knot with a fringe of constrained ringlets. I would trade a good deal of my wardrobe for hair like Nichollette’s. It was actually her last week as a jewellery assistant as she is leaving to work full time on her cushion empire, she won the Best of British Open Call day at Liberty so will be turning from sales staff to supplier.
Jane and I have been chatting about letting our hair go grey rather than having it constantly coloured and I’d do it tomorrow if I could go straight to grey, but we have this messy salt-and-pepper stage first. What did Nichollette do? ‘I grew it out and it took a long line time, but I persevered!” and now it looks amazing, also doesn’t her red lipstick look beautiful too? Her topknot is pinned up with many black hair clamps, with a black and silver clip across te front as decoration.
