Preparations for the Cannes Red Carpet…

Posted · 27 Comments

If you follow my Instagram and Twitter feeds, you’ll already know that last week I got to do something quite amazing and magical. After thirteen years in “the business” I’m not that easily impressed by fashion or beauty stuff (I’ve worn a lot of fine dresses and had a lot of makeup put on my face!) but Dior [...]

The Four Month Hair Colour

Posted · 16 Comments

It has suddenly occurred to me that I haven’t had my hair colour done in nearly four months. Four months! I have hardly any noticeable regrowth and the colour on the lengths of my hair still looks as nice and rich as it did on the day it was tinted. (Actually, I lie: I think it [...]

Posted · 17 Comments

Above: Dexter the Cockapoo. He of ridiculous hair and a penchant for rolling in the faeces of various species. (Poet and didn’t know it.) Below: Yeah! Richard Branson!

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment

Posted · 8 Comments

When Liz Earle launched their Botanical Shine range of hair products last year I was instantly a fan. The shampoo left my scalp and hair really clean without stripping it with harsh chemicals, so it swiftly became one of my most-used shampoos. The conditioner, on the other hand, didn’t completely rock my boat. There was [...]

TIGI Sugar Dust

TIGI Sugar Dust

Posted · 21 Comments

 I have been looking for something to ‘phlumph’ up my flat hair, and the latest fun thing to land upon my testing table is TIGI’s ‘Sugar Dust’. You just sprinkle it onto your roots and then rub your fingertips in your hair, and hey presto! Massively volumised roots! It works far better than dry shampoo, [...]
