National Television Awards 2016

NTA's 2016

I love that the celebs didn't all go for the same style this year. There was a great mixture of high fashion high pony tails, low romantic chignons, delicate waves left loose and 1950's inspired curls.

Jorgie Porter sported a funky jewel with her super sleek high pony. 
You have to be brave to pull off this look, strong make up always helps!

Shona Mcgarty, better known as Whitney Dean from Eastenders  went for a gorgeous soft chignon. This low up-do is so flattering for her square face shape. Paired with some blingy earings and dark eye makeup- she nailed it. 

I love this look on Tess Daily, simply beautiful. This colour is perfect for her skin tone and soft waves are so on trend at the moment. 

Queen of the jungle Vicky Patterson and Corrie star Nikki Sanderson rocked up with 1950's inspired do's. This is my fav! I love the how glossy the girls hair look.

BIG TIP: Use a shine spray on your up do's for a healthier glow and all over shimmer!

Lazy Girls Curls!

Last year New York Fashion Week called it "Meh hair".. For girls that just 'can't even' when it comes to hair styling. 

This year it's more about the curls, we're calling it "Lazy Girls Curls." 

If you are like me and love your hair to look fab with minimum effort, here are a few ways you can create easy to do waves and curls.

1.Braid your hair when it is damp like Madonna, 
the more braids you do, the more waves you will get.

2. Wand your hair in big sections, leave half an inch from the root and the ends out, so you don't get a real curl.

3. Perm it! A perm is the easiest thing to style in the mornings, I love mine. Although a perm is not suitable for everyone so see your stylist for advice.

BIG TIP: Smooth over these styles with a shine serum. I like Avedas' Light Elements Smoothing Fluid.

The girl on fire..


Happy New Year!!


The hair up award for 2015 has got to go to J-Law! This is a lady that knows what suits her, (or at least her hairdresser does).

Although she always kept it simple, no one can deny she got it right.

Tweeking the low messy bun each time meant she never looked the same but each time, equally flawless.


So how can you achieve this at home?

Even if you have a fringe, sweeping or full, keep it simple.

 Loosely curl your hair, tie in a low side pony tail,  use your hand like a claw to hold your hair in the ‘bun’ shape and pin using kirby grips where your fingers are.

 If you are feeling really adventurous, why not add a braid?


BIG TIP: Don’t try too hard!
