The Out -Takes of TGtS Summer Hair 2013

Friday, 12 July 2013

As you know, a few weeks back I spent a crazy hectic Saturday at the amazing John Samuel Hair Salon in Swindon doing a mini photo session for my article on Summer Hair in the Total Guide to Swindon's summer edit.

It was a fab afternoon. We had the lovely Sass and Holly at our disposal to help produce some top summer hair styles - check out the feature here if you haven't already.

The team at John Samuel's are amazing - Sass, who runs the salon, and stylist Holly did a fab job. A HUGE thank you to them for giving up a their Saturday afternoon. And of course my models! Unfortunately my stylist Chloe was away on holiday when we did the shoot - or else she'd of got her creative hands in the mix too.

I really can't rave enough about the salon. The design is sleek and stylish - the staff amazingly friendly, warm and welcoming. But, most importantly, I love what they do to my hair. They have years of expertise and use top of the range products and tools to help make the most of your locks. They also use the L'Oreal Colour range, which is great for me as I'm a fuss pot when it comes to my high lights!

You can keep updated on all the salon offers and what's new on the John Samuel Face Book Page.

We are having the Total Guide to Swindon Summer Party soon - and I can't wait! I have already booked my appointment with Chloe to make sure my hair looks fabulous! I'll let you know what look I went for when I actually decide.. which will more than likely be on the day..

Anyways, here are some of the out-takes from the afternoon, enjoy.

And finally, here is a picture of the ladies themselves, which I took from their website.
Sass, Holly and Chloe - thanks ladies! 


Summer Hair Trends '13

Thursday, 27 June 2013

I have been super busy as of late - so apologies for not blogging in a while. I am almost, in the last stage now, a very proud home owner with the lovely Kevin - so that has been taking up a lot of time - mainly reading and signing and more reading! 

I have also been super busy with Total Guide to Swindon helping write a few beauty articles for their Summer Edit.

Of the articles, one was a 'how-to guide' for Summer Hair Trends. I had a fab day producing this one as the lovely ladies Sass and Holly at John Samuel's Hair Salon Swindon styled all the pictures! What absolute stars?? They have a fab salon and always produce great results.

 I also dragged a few friends along - who kindly volunteered to model in exchange for cocktails. 

I have some fab out-take shots that I will put up in a day or tow (or when I have a moment!), but in the mean-time, why not check out my article and let me know what you think?

Here is a sneaky peek of one of the four styles we created:

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to review the Ken Picton Salon in Cardiff Bay for The Good Life Blog. Here are a few of the snaps Kevin took - whilst I was busy getting pampered.

The wonderful Sarah and Julie.

A few of their many awards.
