This week (our final one, sob sob) the name of the game is grooming, with haircare, nails and tanning taking centre stage. Taking time to get it right is key, but with these handy insider tips, you’ll be fast-tracked straight to beauty pro status…

Adam Reed, Percy & Reed Founder

Q: What is the best piece of beauty advice you have ever received?

A: Rinsing your hair thoroughly is one of the best things that you can do, and the colder the water the better – the benefits of a good cold rinse are immense. It is great for both the hair and the scalp, encouraging blood flow to the scalp which in turn encourages healthy hair growth. It also helps to seal the hair, locking in the benefits of the products that you use and encouraging natural shine by shutting the cuticle.

Q: Have you ever made a beauty blunder you now regret?

A: Too many to mention! I once had a full head of dreadlocks which I loved at the time but am not too sure now that I look back on it!

Q: Tell us about the hero product/range you always recommend

A: Our Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Treatment Oil+ is fabulous for adding real strength and elasticity to your hair, giving it fabulous shine. As is the incredible Cleansing Conditioner that gives the most incredible finish to all hair types, smoothing, locking colour, soothing scalps, thickening and it smells beautiful. This is the product that I enjoyed developing the most. I have used cleansing conditioner for years and wanted to create a formulation that offers the most incredible results.

 

Daisie Smith, Blogger and OPI Guest

 

Q: What is the best piece of beauty advice you have ever received?

A: To show my nails love, like I do the rest of my body! I always deep condition my hair, treat my skin to face masks and exfoliate my body but it can be easy to neglect your nails. Taking the time out of my week to treat my nails to a cuticle exfoliation, file and massage really does pay off in the long run.

Q: Have you ever made a beauty blunder you now regret?

A: Having acrylic nails is definitely something I now regret! It took a whole lot of time, and an intense routine of OPI Nail Envy and Avoplex Oil to restore my nails back to their original state. It definitely wasn’t worth having them in the first place, and I now appreciate my nails while taking good care of them!

Q: Tell us about the hero product/range you always recommend

A: If you are recovering from acrylic nails or simply find that your nails do not grow, I cannot champion OPI Nail Envy enough. Its salon quality formula has wheat protein and calcium packed into it, to help strengthen your nails and put all the goodness back into them. It’s a real saviour! My favourite pick is the Hawaiian Orchid shade as it looks stunning on the nails, while still giving you the maximum strength treatment too.

 

Marc Elrick, Tan-Luxe Founder

Q: What is the best piece of beauty advice you have ever received?

A: Our very own Global Tanning Director at Tan-Luxe, Jules Von Hep, passed on a great tip to me… to speed up the self tanning process, blast your face and body with a cool shot of air from your hairdryer. This makes our products work even faster and I am out the door in a flash in the morning!

Q: Have you ever made a beauty blunder you now regret?

A: We’ve all been there, right?! I think my worst beauty faux pas was plucking my eyebrows around 13 years ago. I was easily convinced this would be a good look, but this was soooo not the case! Never again!!

Q: Tell us about the hero product/range you always recommend

A: I’m a self-confessed skin-care junkie and have literally tried every brand under the sun!! I try to mix up my regime on a regular basis as I get bored easily but I will always come back to Alpha-H.  I love the brand’s ethos and founder Michelle Doherty is so passionate about beauty solutions and creating products that deliver results… something we both have in common! From my Tan-Luxe range, the Illuminating Serum Self Tan Facial Drops have so many five-star reviews and are great for giving you a non-streaky, glowing complexion!
