Brrr, is it cold enough for you? We think it’s safe to say that winter is well and truly here! On that note, we don’t know about you, but we always have an idyllic image of ourselves during winter – snuggled up in a cosy knitted jumper, standing by a snowy window with our hands wrapped round a cup of tea, with gorgeously shiny hair falling effortlessly around our shoulders. The winter weather always has something to say about that last part though!

Thankfully, we are experts in protecting hair from the winter weather, so you can still achieve those gloriously silky winter locks! Here’s how. Read More
Unless you’re channelling your inner Britney Spears circa 1998, you may have previously chosen to steer clear of hair ribbons, perhaps thinking you’ll look too much like a schoolgirl.

It’s daring, bold and takes a long time to grow back if you don’t like it. The buzz cut was probably one of the hottest looks on the red carpet this year. It’s not for everyone, but for those who attempt it the results can be truly stunning! As it removes all framing for your face, it can be beautifully complementary for people with strong jawlines and big eyes. With smoky eyes and a slick of lipstick, this is one sensational look for you to steal from the stars.
So, who’s caught our eye with their blonde buzz cut? Here are just a few of our favourites. Read More
When you walk down the haircare aisle in your local cosmetics shop, it can sometimes seem like there is an endless array of products available, each of which claims to be essential for beautifully styled and healthy hair. While a well-stocked bathroom with the latest haircare products is great, it is important to have the basics in place first. With this in mind, we have come up with the five items that are essential to strong, healthy and beautifully glossy hair.
Shampoo that suits your hair type
Many consumers see shampoo as one of the most basic items in a daily haircare routine. But if not used properly it can actually be a big cause of damage. That’s why it is important that you find a shampoo that’s suited to your hair type (fine, thick, greasy, dry, etc.) and that you follow advice on how often you should be washing it. Your hair will not necessarily need to be washed every day – sometimes a soap-free rinse or a touch of conditioner is enough. Read More
We’re not ready to leave the colours and sparkles of festival season behind us just yet, so, instead, we’re going to keep talking about cute, quirky festival hairstyles that continue to make us smile. We’ve already blogged about mermaid hair, and now we want to chat about a hairstyle that we think is truly magical and utterly inspired – hidden rainbow hair. Pics of the ‘plain on top but fairylike underneath’ style were all over our Instagram last year, and we’re still obsessed with it. Vibrant rainbow colours are applied to layers of hair that are usually hidden when the hair is worn down, so that, when you have work or need to keep the colours hidden, your hair looks its normal colour. Then you tie it up and it’s party time! Read More
