All that glitters
Glitter has become a massive craze to enhance hair or skin. Girls and boys are both sporting the look to take centre stage at events and festivals.
There are lots of different types of glitter however if you’re using it on your skin or scalp you must use cosmetic grade glitter. A sample area should ideally be tested out first to avoid any allergies. For a DIY job, you could try mixing glitter with a little skin oil and use a brush to apply to the areas you want.
For stronger glitter, for example, jewels, eyelash glue can be used as it is a strong adhesive and should be allergy tested already.
For a less sticky approach, hand sanitiser can be used. Apply when it is wet then allow to dry. This will still hold the glitter in place. Glitter and body jewellery can turn a mediocre look into a stunning statement for hardly any outlay or effort and we love it!
We would always suggest caution when trying out anything new and it’s best to try out on a small area first to see how it affects your skin or hair.
Focus on charity
We were delighted to take part in the world’s best coffee morning on the 29th Sept. We had cakes galore, made by our own fair hands (our girls are not only talented hairdressers- Great British Bake off – watch out) and coffee and tea. It was well attended and worth seeing the team wearing their special wigs for the day.
It reminded us how lucky we are to have our own hair and to think about the side effects of some cancer treatments. McMillan nurses offer the very best support and we all know, or will know, someone affected by cancer some time in their lives.
We had a raffle with one lucky winner getting a £50 voucher to spend in the salon. We believe it is important to share our good fortune and will be thinking about next year’s charity very soon.
A big thank you to everyone for donating and eating cakes! We raised £275.90 for McMillan nursing.
