Paul Mitchell Instant Spray-on Shine

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Paul Mitchell Spray-on ShineRecently I’ve been finding myself looking for articles in magazines, newspapers or even programmes on the television that are promoting hair products, so I can determine which ones to go out and buy. I much prefer to use a product that has been tried and tested, just like this one. It has been given a rating of 4/5 which is a great result.

It is an instant spray on shine by Paul Mitchell and will give your locks an instant healthy glow. It contains natural extracts to enhance shine without it looking too shiny that it then looks greasy. It is recommended to be used before straightening as it gives a silky texture. It is a pump spray that gives out a light mist which allows for light application. Use a small amount for ultimate results. Available from HQ Hair for £9.40.

Textured Chignon

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

Textured ChignonStraight off the catwalk for Matthew Williamson this style will never go out of fashion, the chignon is a great way to style the hair as it looks sophisticated without trying to hard. Models on and off the catwalk have been wearing their hair like this for years for a natural yet chic look. There are so many diffrerent types of chignons these days but they all give the same overall effect.

Bumble and Bumble have kindly given us directions on how to achieve the ‘Textured Chignon,’ which involves exaggerating the back bun whilst still having a sleek finish on top. They have also recommended some hair products to help us along the way! Unfortunatley this style will only work on long hair.
