I am jammin’ to hip-hop’s original summer anthem and while we’ve got summer’s music classics on shuffle, it’s our summer beauty selection that is due for an update.
Summer is a great time to update your look, too! Experiment, try something funky and fresh and new. Just because you can’t get a Brazilian blow-dry at Rush Hair London or a sweet new chop at Toni & Guy every day doesn’t mean you can’t always look your best. The rising temperatures mean wonderful summer fashion, come rain or come shine. It also means that more skin is on display, so make sure to exfoliate and moisturise regularly. Invest in some great products so that you can look and feel fabulous all the time!
Here are my top picks in beauty from hair to skin care.
