Three Brands I Love in the month of LOVE

I love these brands always… but here are the reasons I use Balmain, Wahl and Batiste…

  • Wahl are a great brand, with years of experience and a fabulous team of people ensuring that the services and products they offer are at a high standard. They fabulous for male grooming.
  • Balmain are a brand I have worked with for years, and so of course they make my love list… One of my fav pieces is the Complete extension 60cm, because it gives be so much hair to work with, and the mixture of colours available mean I literally can match any hair to it… #hairheaven #hairobsessed.
  • Batsiste is a fabulous dry shampoo… it is not the first time I’ve raved about this, but I can go through so much working with bridal up-dos, and red carpet clients… so that I can create added shine and volume.

Happy Valentine’s Day this month to these lovely, brilliant brands.

Loving Batiste Dry Shampoo!

I love working with dry shampoo! It helps create so much volume and thickness to the hair! Batiste is a fab brand, because it doesn’t just do dry shampoo, but it really does dry shampoo – and for different needs: brunette hair, blonde hair, dark hair, light hair, for refreshing hair and for extra volume – so you can go serious bouffant.

The bottles are funky, somehow a futuristic mixed with retro feel – and easy to hold and apply too!

Much of my work involves styling hair into up dos… and I do tend to spray dry shampoo at the root area to give the hair extra height and staying power! And as mentioned above, I so love the fact that the Batiste range is available in different colours, so I can really cater for all of my clients.

Recently, one of my clients was considering buying and regularly wearing a wig as her hair is so fine and limp, but now that I’ve introduced her to Batiste dry shampoo, the wig is just a distant memory!

Batiste is a permanent part of my hair kit ;o)
