Work: Cruise Ship Styling

This weekend was spent aboard the Adventure of the Sea Carribean Voyager Class Ship styling Claire's hair for her big day. I know Claire through friends so whilst I working, it was also fun celebrating - and meeting Bobby Davro. Ask your mum and dad kids!
So the hair, the bride went for a side bun made of curls. The slides used were added to surround the bun and at the front there was a small delicate braid to keep the hair off of the brides face. I used hair pieces to create more volume and dimension to the bun and the tools of the trade were Catwalk by TIGI Shine Spray, Vo5 Heat Defence Spray, Batiste Conditioning Mist, Enrapture Totem Styler to create curls, along with my Babyliss Pro Conical Wand for the shorter hair on some of the bridesmaids. Cloud Nine C9 Touch Straighteners were used to add some shine to sections and smooth any flyaway hairs.
I love doing wedding hair, and have a few more weddings coming up I'm styling. So lovely to be part of a couples big day. You can take a look at my bridal styling on my website if you'd like to see more.

Mask Monday: Bed Head Colour Goddess Miracle Treatment

You colour, you style, you have dry damaged hair. Sound familiar? If you are wanting a little boost from your haircare routine then this mask could help you. Suitable for all hair colours, and I think particularly those who colour and bleach hair on a regular basis.
The Bed Head Colour Goddess Miracle Treatment Mask (RRP £10.95) combines keratin, Provitamin B5 and penetrating oils and moisturising and conditioning ingredients to help smooth the cuticle of the hair. Smoothing the cuticle means hair will shine, making colour look more vibrant and give healthy looking hair.
One thing I will say with this mask. If you like Butterscotch Angel Delight, get this. Get this now. It smells incredible, and the fragrance stays with your hair after being washed and dried. Seriously gorgeous. I'd be tempted to use even if I didn't colour my hair.
You can also pick up the shampoo and conditioner in the range for goddess like, coloured hair.

The packaging gives away that this brand is something a little special. SHOW is a complete styling designed to provide 'superior benefits' It promises to help volumise, thicken and condition hair leaving it with a high shine, glamorous finish.
I love a volumising product, and have tried a variety of mousses, sprays and cremes that promise to boost my barnet. One stand-out with the Volume Mousse (£30) is that it isn't sticky at all, it's a light mousse that I found did boost my hair when I blowdried. It didn't weigh my hair down, or even feel like I had any product in it. Infused with Wheat and Soy Proteins, along with Jojoba and Argan Oil it gives hair moisture and shine. Oh and I did I mention it also has UV Protection. Pretty good eh!
The Volume Mist (£35) will make your hair smell like you've just had a ultra swish-making blowdry. It smells gorgeous, and I've been using this for day-to-day use and then using the mousse when I'm wanting some extra oomph. The Mist is quite powerful so I've been spraying onto my hands then working through damp hair to avoid any overload in certain areas.
The range has eleven finishing and styling products and you can pick up the SHOW Beauty range from Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nics now. Whilst definitely not the cheapest of items, it's a special treat for your hair and would make a great gift for you or someone who loves to treat their hair. The packaging and scent gives an oppulent feel to the products and the Volume Mousse and Volume Mist deliver.
