LIVERPOOL FASHION WEEK: CLOSING NIGHT


Friday night saw Liverpool Fashion Week come to a close.
I apologise for this post being so late up, it was supposed to go live on Saturday however, due to a crazy storm on Friday evening when I got home - my internet shut off completely.

Closing night was the turn of the junior models and the pets. Now we all know what people say about working with children and animals but these little 'ens were pros on the catwalk.

HAIR: NICE 'N' EASY - SUNKISSED DYE IN ' GOLDEN BEACH BLONDE'


After knocking around 11 promotional packs of Nice 'n' Easy dye's off the shelf in Superdrug last week, I knew that I could at least be courteous and buy one.
I was actually enticed by the packaging before my little misdemeanour, I love the branding of the 'Sunkissed' range - it really sells to me the ultimate beach babe donning a mane of golden highlighted tresses.

 I have used Nice 'n' Easy dyes before mainly for the luxurious conditioner that comes in the box, you can actually now buy that separate in Boots and Superdrug. I have found previously that the dyes can be a little drying on the hair and all of the blondes packs that I have previously used have tended to turn my hair a vague shade of snot green. The 'Light Golden Beach Blonde' shade is my new favourite hair dye by far. The blend of 3 tones distributes honey blonde, beige blonde and warm blonde through the hair leaving you looking like you've spent the last two hours in foils.

THE MAKE-UP: USING MAC 'TEAL'PIGMENT


Some mornings I just feel like getting super creative with my eye make-up by delving into the realms of my creative make-up drawer.
I have recently been playing with loose pigments, in particular 'Teal' by MAC which was apart of their 'Tartan Tale' collection in 2010.
I create my usual, everyday smokey eye  and use a flat, synthetic brush to pat the aqua toned teal pigment onto my eyelid before blending with a fluffy brush.
I like how the grey shadows mix nicely with the flush of colour against lighter eyes making me look more awake and my make-up more creative.

THE EVENT: LIVERPOOL URBAN FASHION SHOW 2014








On Sunday night I popped on my fashion editor hat and headed to Palm Sugar Lounge in Liverpool One to be wowed by all kinds of hair-mazingness.


The Liverpool Urban Hair Show, created by KWATU Events to showcase hairdressing creativity to its fullest as six stylists battled it out to impress Hooka salon owner, Dion Padan and Carl Russell and Amie Brown of Russell and Brown Vintage Hair.


Amongst the styling showcase were live acts including Liverpool based Bollywood dancers RuShee and Norwegian acoustic singer Jonas.  After parking my bum on a seat and ordering a Cosmo the event began with an opening speech from Clare Seddon the organiser of the Urban Hair Show.

I caught up with Clare Seddon, Founder of the organiser KWATU Events after the show, she said:
 “I was extremely impressed by the turn out and the hairdressers went to extremes to showcase avant guard hairstyles and creativity, seeing the show come together and the guests enjoying all of the performances made me feel certain that the show has been well received in Liverpool.”


The hairdressing mavericks taking part in the show included, Glamor Hairdressers, Fabuluxe hairdressers, Twisted Plaits and Braids, Heavenly Holes Hairdressers, Electric Unicorn and Bella Mode Hairdressers. 

Backstage, Tawny Wright of Electric Unicorn felt the pre-show strains, she told me: “I only decided to do the show on Monday, so I made the head pieces last minute. I arrived an hour later than everyone else and had no access to plugs and at one point was without a second model so it was high pressure and I was sure I wouldn't finish in time. Thankfully it all came together,and we had a lot of fun.”

Judge, Dion Padan who announced the winning stylist, said: “I was amazed to see such creative work. What I loved about the winners look what the way she had created two very different models but they both complimented each other so well. I hope this competition goes from strength to strength as it’s a great opportunity for local hairdressers to get to showcase their work.”

The winning stylist was Lo Forster of Fabuluxe hair which is located on Liverpool's Smithdown Road, she said: " I couldn't believe it as soon as I heard my Salons name announced as the winner I was in shock. I overwhelmed by all the compliments and good things the judges were saying to me. I felt like all my hard work had paid off.”
