Jordan Haircare

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Curling TongsWell what can I say, is there any marketing pie Jordan doesn’t want to get her finger in to?? She’s done it all, jewellery, accessories and now hair care!

HairdryerI personally think the new range looks as tacky as I would expect anything sold by her too look like, but I haven’t tried and tested for quality purposes, so if you are a fan of hers – which I’m clearly not, then give her the benefit of the doubt and try these new products.

StraightnersThey might work well, I can’t imagine they’re going to the job that top salon products do, but it may be worth giving them ago for the price alone.

Superdrug is currently stocking the range and the have curling tongs for £12.99, a hairdryer with attachments for £19.99 and a sleek pair of straightners for £19.99. It appears from the Superdrug website that the hairdryer is currently out of stock so someone out there must be loving it!! You can check out each product in the range either on line or pop down to your nearest Superdrug to see for yourself.

Fringe Crazy

Friday, October 26th, 2007

Adding a fringe to your hairstyle is the most dramatic way to change your look other than going for a full on chop. You just need to look at the pictures of Kate Moss to see how a fringe can change your face shape and flatter your bone structure. Kate’s heavy fringe is not for everyone, her killer cheek bones are not swamped by such a style but there are plenty of variations on the theme so there is something to suit all face shapes.

If you feel brave enough to go for a full on blunt fringe you can take inspiration from the likes of Lilly Allen and Sarah Harding but sweeping fringes like Nicole Richie or light wispy fringes like Jennifer Aniston’s are great for those just wanting to soften the face a bit and are much better if you suffer from greasy skin on your forehead. Check out some pictures of celebs with different face shapes and different style fringes. You can see what works and go to your hairdresser with a good idea in mind of what you want.

Accessorize your Hair!

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

Miu Miu AlicebandAlice bands are a cool way to accessorize your hair this winter! I personally remember wearing them when I was about 5, which is a bit strange, but if you’re a real girly girl you will love this look!

I have taken the time to search for the best Alice bands a girl can buy and if you’re a bit of a designer chick you will love this coral patent leather Alice band by Miu Miu; the colour is sooo gorgeous and just to show everyone that it is Miu Miu, their name has been embellished on the side in gold! Cute! So if you fancy splashing out, this headband can be purchased from net a porter for £55 and also comes in black, perfect to match those patent black platforms that everyone has this season!

If your on a bit more of a budget why not try Accessorize?! They have a fab collection of Alice bands, here’s one of my favourites, for £8 you just can’t go wrong!

Curls Made Easy with Babyliss You Curl

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Babyliss You CurlYou may already have curling tongs, but trust me you’ll want a set of these Babyliss you Curl! For me, trying to use a normal straightening iron to curl my hair is an absolute nightmare, everyone says “its as easy as curling a ribbon with a pair of scissors” yeah right! I’ve only ever known hairdressers or people studying hair, to be able to do it that way.

For the likes of you and me that haven’t got the first clue, we need these. You just run them through your hair like a normal straightener, but the curved plates will leave you with loose, sexy waves. So much easier than going to the salon. This video demonstrates how it is done and we might even stand a chance of doing the back bits with these. Currently available at Amazon.co.uk for £39.99.

Hi Lights Hair Mascara

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Hair MascaraNow here is a genius product if ever I’ve seen one; instead of having to take a trip back to the hairdressers every six weeks you can now buy this amazing product. For those of you who have high lights, this is a must have. Now your salon visit can be put on hold and instead of paying out between £30 and £60 at a salon you can buy this Hi Lights Hair Mascara for just $20.

Simply sweep the brush through the strands of hair that you want to highlight, from the root to the tip, wait for it to dry and then brush it to blend it in for that salon worthy look. It just washes out too so you can try it if you have never had high lights to see what it would look like.

Available from Neiman Marcus.
