Balayage Beauty

My husband has the most beautiful hair. It’s thick and luscious without being coarse, it naturally falls into effortless beachy waves and his hairline is full with no little receding patches. And the real kicker? His hair lightens perfectly in the sun, giving it that lovely sunkissed glow that so many of us spend hundreds […]

Layer Up

The ‘Rachel’ hairstyle was THE haircut to have back in 1995, allowing people the world over to experience the true “joy” of styling this heavily layered look.  Rumour has it she didn’t even really like the cut – unverified of course but I can imagine that the […]

Autumnal Aspirations

I’ve always thought that the beginning of Autumn wasn’t the start of March as the Gregorian calendar insists it is here down south. To me the arrival of the Easter long weekend truly heralds the start of the glorious jaunt into this most delightful season. The last vestiges of summer have finally vanished and there […]

Unlock your locks

Magic carpets, pumpkin coaches, curses that change people into teapots. Fairytales are full of these wonderful and completely inconceivable concepts, and as a child I was terribly disappointed to find out that there definitely wasn’t a pathway to another world at that back of my wardrobe. Despite checking multiple times. But there is one tale […]
