Hey lovelies!!

Just a quick post to tell you what I'm up to at the moment!

I've just started off working full time as a junior for Wildilocks Hair Salon on Cuba St. It's amazing! Hard work but so rewarding. I am still doing styling but I wanted to get to know everything I can about hair and how it's done so that one day when I open my own salon (eeeek!) I know exactly how things work and can step in when I need to.

Check out their website! www.wildilocks.com

I've just dyed my hair red FINALLY and I love it! Because of my PPD allergies (chemical in permanent hair dye which also makes me allergic to almost any dye) I had never actually built up the courage to do it and see if it would work without me being in a lot of pain as the up keep for red hair is so intense I just wouldn't be able to keep up if I had a severe reaction each time. 

So I bit the bullet and tried Directions Hair Colour and it is FANTASTIC!! I can't praise it highly enough! I did not react to it AT ALL. No redness, swelling, sores, nothing! I am amazed and so happy! I used a mix of Flame and Vermillion. 

For some reason I can't upload a pic...will do it later!! Or go here to see pictures on my Belle's Bombshells facebook fan page :)

And so lastly the reason for my sudden decision to go red...it's my 21st Birthday Party this weekend! I cannot wait!! It's a Nautical themed party and I'm having live music and fabulous drinks and awesome decorations! And the BEST DRESS ever! The Sailor Swing Dress from Pinup Girl Clothing! Exciting!

So that's all my news for now :) 

Will update you again soon!! xx

My favourite products!

Hello fellow pin up geeks!

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite hair products that really do help to create those gorgeous pin up shapes that we all love!




Starting off with my favourite product of all time!

#1 - Fudge Skyscraper Hairspray


          This stuff is THE BEST hairspray I have EVER found! I've used it since I was 15 and cannot recommend it enough! It has a medium hold factor which I adore as it doesn't make the hair look hard and immobile. It holds everything in place for hours whilst still allowing movement and leaving the hair to look lush and not straw. It also smells amazing, apple and coconut scented! Yum!



#2 - Joico Joiwhip Mousse

          Again I have used this product since I was 15 and have never found a better mousse! My hair is naturally quite flat and this gives it a serious oomph of volume. You can either put it through towel-dried hair (only in the roots!) and blow dry upside down for great fresh volume (remember to turn the cool setting on the hair dryer and cool down your hair before turning upright! This will allow the hair to set and keep its height) or to save some time I like to wash my hair at night, towel dry, put the mousse through the roots and tie my hair on top of my head. This allows my hair to dry up overnight and the product to work its magic without heat.



#3 - Davines Hair Putty for Wizards

         I LOVE THIS STUFF! It gives an amazing amount of texture and tackiness to the hair without it looking greasy! Perfect for anyone having trouble with fine hair! I like to use it in the roots and tease to create a base for trickier styles.



#4 - Joice Pomade

Pomade is a totally overlooked and underestimated product. It gives amazing smooth and shine to curls, rolls and fingerwaves. It creates control and texture for the more elaborate styles and helps to keep the hair together, again with no greasy look or feel. Ladies, you NEED to try this!

My Debut Performance!

Wow!

The day I have been dreaming of for a long time is looming ever closer! My debut burlesque performance will be at the end of this month on the 27th at Carousel Cabaret! Two days after my 21st birthday :)


Come along and see the show!

Pin Up for Prems!

Hi ladies and gents!

So today was the last shoot for the Pin Up for Prems calendar! Pre order your calendar HERE . We have printed 2000 copies, 100% of the profit will be donated to either the Special Care Unit at Hutt Hospital for premature babies and since the earthquake they decided to print an extra 1000 to donate the profit from those to Christchurch. So on your order form please state which charity you would like to donate to :)
It was so much fun but thank god it's done, I can't imagine how tired Mandi and Georgia must be!

My shoot was after Good Morning last thursday and it was my first ever shoot. I didn't tell Mandi until afterwards and she couldn't believe it so I guess I did well :)
I had the amazing Eva there with me too to help and she was great helping me with angles, reminding me to smile, making me laugh and adjusting my costume to allow for more boobs!! Haha.

So this is the shot Mandi has chosen. If you know me you know that I am insanely critical of myself and find it really difficult to see what others can. I think I actually like this shot...which is amazing haha. Mandi Lynn of A La Mode Photography is such a talented photographer and it was an honour to be shot by her. If you're reading this Mandi, THANK YOU so much xx


What do you guys think??
