Finding the Mane Piece

The search to find the jewel that will take my hair do from "it's ok" to "wow" your hair looks amazing. 

All that glitters truly is a beauty when done in moderation and tastefully. So for the past week I have been on a hunt to find my mane piece but it seems to elude me (for the time being anyway). I came close when I discovered this beauty, however it was too small to have the desired effect and doubling it would be err na! 


Looking at it now and aww my heart melts. Never mind, I press on knowing the mane piece is out there waiting to be discovered.

We've worked with a lot of brides over the years and here are some pieces we love.

A Single White Rose
MUA - Bolanle Makeuppro 

Combination of tiara and pearl pins
MUA - Pauline Briscoe

Pearl & Diamant√© comb

One of the keys to having the perfect hair do, is to chose your style first and then find a piece that will add that "umph" to it.

Thanks to our lovely brides who allow us to be a part of their special day!

That's all the mane talk until next time.... Love your mane.

"I Do"

These words are due to come out of my mouth in approximately 6 weeks, and the question I've been asked the most is "who is doing your hair"? well that will be revealed on the day...stay tuned.

I can however share my tips with you on the routines I've developed over the past few months. Nothing new really except sometimes we need to be told so as to put into practices! so am telling you to keep it simple :)

I started by washing my hair at least twice a week using Philip Kingsley moisture extreme shampoo followed by moisture balancing conditioner. This ensured that my hair was clean and moisturised (try washing your hair more often and you will notice the difference in your hair texture and condition). I know the myth but to be honest you would not go a day without taking a bath and the same skin on your body is the same on your head.

My hair is getting the right treatment, I had to ensure that I was maintaining a healthy balanced diet (avoiding as best possible to go on diets) and lifestyle. We'll come back to the effects of  poor diet later.

Once I had my routine on lock,  I also incorporated hair supplements to help give my hair the extra boost it needed on the days I may have forgotten to eat properly (opsie!) we all have those days. To ensure your hair does not suffer supplements can help provide your hair with targeted nutrients (I'll write a blog looking at supplements and dispel the myths).

Trimming your hair after a relax is very important to maintaining healthy hair, it prevents split ends. Remember it is better to be preventive than to cure!

Enjoy loving your mane and let us know your routine!

Our first post.... we hope you enjoyed.

your mane stop.

xoxo
