why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! professional keeps the colour vibrancy and longevity! so you don't have to get it done as often as if you are using the right products! ( I'm not talking about root re- growth, just fading).
Your going to a salon spending a fair bit of money on your hair for you to then go home and wash it a few days later in high street brands....you are literally washing away what you have spent! and will then most likely come back to say that's is faded quickly?!.

Professional shampoos are a bit more pricey but they last twice as long, they cleanse your hair, keep your colour fresher for longer and keeps it nourished and looking beautiful! (that's want we want right?!)
You will probably use twice as much, therefore having to buy it on alot more of a regular basis if  you are using high street brands, where as stick to professional and it will last sooo much longer as you have to use very little!
Here's an example of a few well known brands but to avoid!
Pantene  - its like glue! full of silicone's, just coating and coating your hair and scalp!
Head and Shoulders - will definitely strip your hair colour
Tresemme' - dries your hair out and strips colour
Dove - full of silicone's to coat your hair.....you get the picture!

Remember we are not here to sell, we want you hair looking lovely, just as though you have walked out of the salon!
If you go to the salon and get your hair coloured, i definitely recommend a shampoo they use that's compatible for the colour brand they use!



Trust me you hair will thank you for it!

Happy hair day!

Is primark makeup worth the hype?

Ive heard soo many good things about primark make up..yes you heard it right primark make up! that i had to test it myself! to be honest its not a make up line that i ever really thought much about or even looked at before. But i heard that they upped there game and brought out new ranges which were dupes of high end brands!
my primark beauty section isn't the biggest but they had a fair selection there and it seems over the past few months they have been getting more and more things in! i wanted to try all of  the foundations, one of which was a long wear one (i cant remember the exact name? as that one i particular is meant to be a dupe for estee lauder! they unfortunately didn't have my shade which was a real shame as i really wanted to try i but i didn't fancy walking around with a face that totally doesn't match my neck what so ever!.
Admittedly i did forget to pick up a bronzer and a contour set and a primer but i can test these at a later date. i was more inter…

My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!
 I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them!
there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash.

I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones tend to be …

My drug store forever repurchases

Sometimes we try a product that we fall in love straight away and that's it, of we go skipping off into the sun! but in the beauty world its not quite the case as there are sooo many products to test and try, with different formula's etc. so i would say normally, its pretty difficult to find ones that are spot on for us straight away!
but with beauty being a huge thing in the market these days  there are constant new releases that we are drawn to and have to try! even though you have a thousand blushers....you always want to try them even though you may not need them! get me?!

Having said all of that We all have them holy grail//life saver products that we buy over and over again because we know that they work best for us! and no matter how many other products we buy, try and may really like...we always manage to go back to our roots and go back to our favourite's! 

i LOVE trying new products but i will never leave my little saviours behind. i like to mix up what i use b…
