Bank Holiday Monday Snip #24

Not as catchy, but you can understand my reasoning. Monday has reached me, slightly jaded and more than happy with the weekend of reggae, cider and some gorgeous food. Every weekend should be a bank holiday shouldn't it?!

Celeb Hair of the Week
This week I need you lot to help me out. Pixie Lott's new hair, is it a do or a don't? I can't help but look at it and see a hint of Sue Barker, no offense to Pixie, she's a gorgeous girl but I don't think this style suits her.
Handy Hint
Suffering from split ends? Have a rummage in the kitchen cupboard and pop some olive oil on the ends for a treat your hair will love. It won't cure the split ends but it will help fight the battle. Remember when removing the oil to use shampoo on dry hair first then add water. Adding water first will create a barrier meaning the oil won't be removed, and no one wants a chip pan on their head do they.

Product of the Week
I recently popped this pink tinned Vo5 hairspray into my shopping basket and will be sharing my thoughts once I've well and truly road tested it. With a promise of being "weather resistant" I have high hopes for it coping with the unpredictable weather we are having at the moment.
(am I being ungirly by thinking the hair world has gone Pink mad lately? Nothing seems safe, from hot rollers to shampoo bottles!)
Did you know?
Us hairdressers use something called the ICC (International Colour Chart) Generally all manufacturers follow this and the colour codes that appear on the boxes can be followed by the chart. The numbers represent how light or dark the colour is, this is known as the depth. The overall colour that is seen, is known as the tone. If you want to know more about the ICC and the colours you choose, make sure you keep reading as I'm working on a post for all your "artificial beauties" :)

Well, I have a cup of tea with my name on, well maybe a Dirty Dancing logo rather than my name but you get the picture. Happy Monday you lovely lot, see you during the week.


  1. Hmm, not so keen on Pixie's hair. Think she suited the long, wavy look better.
    I hope the hairspray manages to withstand the weather we've been having lately! x

  2. I can see what you mean, definitely a hint of Sue Barker. I really don't like it, or it could just be the hideous high-necked blouse she's wearing! xx
    Sirens and Bells

  3. Yuck, very granny-ish and not nice at all!
    Enjoy your cuppa. x

  4. Hmm, I'm undecided about the hair. I really don't think that blouse is helping matters.

    The overwhelming pinkness of things in the hair and beauty world really puts me off :( I like V05 stuff but I doubt I'd be buying that.

  5. I have to admit I quite like Pixie's new bob - although not in this photo - it looks nice in her new video. I loved it long too. She has such a pretty face she could carry off any hairstyle. *Suddenly hates Pixie Lott* xx
