Let’s take a look how we can look after our hair that little bit better, take it away Tina…..

To look after your hair between salon visits, use a good professional shampoo and conditioner. Quality products mean you can use less product as they are concentrated within the bottle so adding a little water to your shampoo will go a long way. Look out for products with up filters giving you that added bit of protection whatever the weather.

Give your hair an extra treat once a week by investing in a moisturising Masque. This will work deeper in to your cuticle giving your hair moisture and shine, just what your hair deserves. Wrap in a towel and leave for 5-10 minutes whilst soaking in the bath, a good excuse for a little me time!

Detangling hair! This is usually when we mistreat our hair using a brush or, pulling and over and stretching the hair. SLOW down, use either a wide tooth comb or a tangle teaser, these won’t stretch and pull your locks. Section hair into 3, start combing mid length to ends first then work your way from the root to ends. This will keep tangles to a minimum, if needed use a leave in detangle spray to give you a faster tangle free hair.

Eve Lily Charity Wedding Catwalk Show

I’m really excited to write this blog post for you as it’s about a recent and very successful charity event that we held earlier this month at the gorgeous City Rooms. It seems like a life time ago now, after a number of sleeps to recover I have some lovely coverage for you to cast your eyes over. I hope you can see what a great event it was. Thank you to all our guests who came and supported us and helped achieve a wonderful atmosphere for everyone involved.

So to the event, this was in aid of a very special girl and an amazing charity, which we raised a wonderful amount of money for.

Isla, as some of you will know, is currently suffering from Leukemia and undergoing treatment with the support of her family. Isla is only little, a gorgeous character with a beautiful cheeky smile and strong personality, I can only imagine this is how she and her family get through this tough time.

Now everyone loves the idea of a magician right? Well I have seen The Trixta in action (although not on this night, which was a real shame) and he is fantastic, a real showman and certainly entertained our guests brilliantly, thank you Ash.

The Vernon Sisters provided us with wonderful entertainment for the opening of the event and were fabulous!

Our event started with a bang with the fantastic Vernon Sisters who offered their services to help us achieve such a wonderful entertaining evening for everyone who came, I can’t tell you how brilliant they were, I wanted to watch them all night but had to work so only caught moments of their performance.

I do love what I do and the reason I do it, so thought it was about time that I shared something very special (well it is for me anyway!) I have a lot of friends in this industry and we all know how hard it can be at times, there is someone very special to me that keeps me going and makes me smile even more when they tell me how much they love something I have made, or styled, that would be Eve, well actually Eve Lily.

At the start of the year I decided to do a photo shoot of me and my daughter in a little tongue in cheek Audrey style. This was supposed to be a 30 minute mini shoot, so I could involve Eve in what I do and show what Eve Lily is all about at the same time. This didn’t quite pan out as Eve as always just got into the spirit of things and took over, with a little encouragement from Sarah and so the timings went to pot. It was such a fun shoot and we really did get in the spirit of it all.
