SPLIT ENDS? SINGE THEM AWAY!

 

SPLIT ENDS? SINGE THEM AWAY!

 

Lighting up my hair...

Lighting up my hair… Yes, that is a candle-flame being run along a twist of my hair.

 

So why on earth am I sitting there grinning while unseen hands take a candle to my hair? Well, in Brazil, it’s know as velaterapia and it is a favourite and time-honoured technique for getting rid of split ends in long hair. And now the Richard Ward MetroSpa in Chelsea is offering it, so I felt I had to try it — I thought that, with their high-grade clientele (Middletons, Chelsea-luxe, etc) I was surely in safe hands.

TOM FORD SPRING NAILS

 

TOM FORD SPRING NAILS   

 

Indigo Night: Tom Ford Beauty

Indigo Night: Tom Ford Beauty

IT IS NOT A VERY SPRING-LIKE COLOUR but isn’t it just beautiful? This is one of the new colours from Tom Ford Beauty, on counter at the start of February and it’s just gorgeous. In the bottle, in the right light, it has hints of iridescent royal blue but as you can see here – and when it’s on the nail – it is so dark and shiny that it is almost black. It’s called Indigo Night and it’s just as wintry as the weather is right now.

The silicone toothbrush – does it work?

 

FOREO ‘ISSA’ TOOTHBRUSH: so how well does it work? 

 

Tall and elegant: Issa

Tall and elegant: the Issa brush

I was really intrigued when the gorgeous Issa toothbrush launched last autumn. It’s expensive (£149) and impressively high-tech — it’s the world’s first electric toothbrush to be made completely from silicone and claims that using it for two minutes morning and night will leave your teeth looking whiter and brighter while a gentle gum-massage function will lead to healthier-looking gums.

10 things I’ve learned since going ginger

A month ago, I had my dark blonde hair dyed a vibrant shade of red  for a newspaper feature - because red is THE hair colour of 2015, I’m told. It’s also, as redheads everywhere will know already, not the easiest colour to live with — I’ve already toned that red down to a more manageable ginger. Here is what has struck me most over the past weeks.
