Beauty Matters!

Every now and again you come across a little gem hiding in the woods and that is exactly what I did. In East Belfast where I live a lovely little beauty salon opened and as with all new places you always want to have a nosey and check them out. Well, boy am I glad I did. I walked into Angel Face Beauty and was greeted by a beautiful looking girl who even though she was dealing with a customer looked up to greet me and let me know she would be with me in a minute. While I was waiting I couldn't help notice how calm the place felt. Nice chilled out music and the decor was girlie and rich :) I loved it! The girl Stephanie works with her mum Sally and between them they are a duo that rock the beauty world. I took a leaflet and brought it home to have a look. I have always had problems getting a good bikini wax done and thought well, whats the worst that can happen haha, I'll try them out and see. Well I am so glad I did. Without a word of exaggeration BEST bikini wax I have ever had. Hardly hurt, made to feel so comfortable and best part? No ingrown hairs! - you know how they are girls! Eek! So happy. Then for my nails, Stephanie did the mani-q nails with added nail art of my choice. Well as you all may know by now, I'm a sucker for a bit of leopard print so with patience and a lot of skill and talent Stephanie hand drew my gel nails with a added leopard print on my ring fingers and thumbs. ABSOLUTELY love them! Great job and a week later they are still fab and I have been cutting, colouring and washing hair all week. I will enclose a photo of them so you can agree haha. While I was getting my nails done I was told about the fab HD Eyebrows and give them a go also. I was not disappointed, they are amazing! They were dyed, threaded, plucked and waxed to perfection and I will most definitely be a repeat customer. Please check out their website and have a nosey at everything they do.

Emilio Pucci Spring 2013 Ready-to-wear Collection

Here are some of my favourites from this collection. The dresses are gorgeous and I could see myself wearing them. The playsuit is fab and the pattern is just stunning! Plus, I'm a sucker for pockets in anything. :) The simplicity of the hair is perfect as it doesn't take away from the clothes. Love it! Xo

New York Fashion Week with our Irish Lads

I am very proud to say that I know and have met and worked with two of Northern Ireland's best home grown hairdressers. They are Leon Gorman and John Mullan who both started out their lives in Northern Ireland and have become global hairstyling icons.

John http://www.johnmullan.com is based in London and owns his own salon called Stone Hair http://www.stone-hair.com and Leon http://www.leongorman.com and
http://www.themagnetagency.com/?m=Hair&id=2 lives between Brooklyn, NY and Milan with his beautiful wife Benedetta Dell'orto http://www.benedettadellorto.com who works for Italian Elle Magazine as their Accessories Director and Senior Fashion Editor, such a dream team! 
This year they worked together for NY Fashion Week creating amazing hair styles for Vivienne Tam and Monika Chiang's new 2013 collections.


As always Leon and John knocked it out of the park. I wouldn't off expected anything else. They both inspire me to be a better hairdresser and for that I am always truly grateful. I love following their hairdressing careers and taking any tips I can from them.
 
Thank you guys <3
 
Leon and John working their magic <3
