Tagging in her hair guru Dominic, Pricey filmed her makeover on Instagram at home in front of a large portrait of herself.

Kate explained: “Need some weaves for a job and thank god Dominic was free today, so talented.”

She later posed with her new long, flowing hair writing: “Oh yes I’ve got my hair on. Thank you, Dominic!”

Beverley hair stylist Dominic has not been twiddling his thumbs during the coronavirus pandemic, instead using his creative talents to fashion wigs.

The hair stylist, who is from Hull, and runs his own salon also shared some before and after snaps.

And the loyal customer and hairdresser partnership has seen Dominic travel down south to cut and coloured Katie’s hair from the heart of her Surrey home.

Dominic said: “Katie found me via Instagram, contacted me and invited me to her house last week to film for her YouTube channel.

“She was doing a segment on hair and beauty, telling people they shouldn’t be afraid to wear wigs and how they can change your looks instantly – she’s a chameleon,” said Dominic.

“I handmade two wigs, both using natural hair and coloured, cut, styled and finished by me. One was blonde and quite natural, and there was a copper one as well.

“I also cut and coloured Katie’s own hair while I was there – her hair does get over-styled for magazine shoots and she needed a good cut and colour.”

He added: “I did a deep raven colour, as she’s quite dark naturally, and styled her hair straight. It’s really exciting to have celebrities seek you out for your work.

“I work really hard and I am quite humble. With us getting filmed for Katie’s YouTube channel, I got a real buzz from that, when you think she could have picked anyone.”

He has also styled Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison’s hair.

Dominic was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma a number of years ago and, after gruelling treatment and getting the all-clear, he decided to put his efforts into helping young people diagnosed with cancer by providing them with bespoke wigs.
