Oh Yeah! Hair Accessories Galore!

Jennifer Lo

Myself and Kerri (Bridal Indulgence owner) recently held a bridal hair accessories day at the Bridal Indulgence Boutique in Crondall, Hampshire showcasing a huge range of the beautiful head pieces by designer Miranda Templeton. Read on to find out how it went…

It can be tricky for brides-to-be to know what kind of hair styles to go for and what hair accessories will suit them. So we thought it would be a good idea to offer free 20 minute sessions for brides (first come, first serve) to have a chat with me about hair, to help them figure out what style suits them, their dress and their personality. I did a really quick demo of styles after a little chat and we tried on a range of accessories to suit.

Doing it this way is useful because then you know that the hair style will suit the accessory. Whereas sometimes you may fall in love with a head piece or accessory and then find you are limited to the hair styles that it can be worn in.

We had an extensive range of head pieces and accessories that are a good size for a bride, as you want it to be noticeable. There are delicate pieces, vintage styles and gorgeous jewel and pearl adorned designs to suit every bride. Each design can also come in silver, gold or rose gold and made to your preference which is AMAZING as we all love to customise things these days.

Below are some of the head bands, which look great on a down style as well as up and the bands can be hidden, but if visible they have thin bands that tie in beautifully.

Kerri from Bridal Indulgence kindly offered 10% off any item bought as well on the day. If you would like to see more of what Kerri has then you can contact her on hello@bridalundulgence.co.uk

A couple of the stunning head bands, I love the big chunky jewels!

In each 20 minute session I was able to give the bride an idea of how their hair would work with the styles they liked, whether or not they might need hair extensions to bulk out the hair or not and see where a veil could go. They could also see my technique and feel confident that I would be able to achieve whatever they want on their big day. From looser styles to more formal classics. What do you think? I did not even use any hot tongs!

If you are interested in coming to one of these days with me, then comment below or drop me an email: info@loloandco.uk and I can let you know when the next one will be.

My style of strobing and contouring!

My views on what 'strobing' and 'contouring' REALLY is...

Remove your SLAP before you NAP! Here's why...

Jennifer Lo

You may be one of those wonderful people who religiously cleanses your skin before you sleep each night, or you may be like myself and occasionally (or frequently tsk tsk) uses the excuse of too tired, too much Prosecco, or no wipes to hand! We all know that we should take off our makeup before we sleep but not doing so on the regular is truly damaging. Here are some of the worrying things that could happen...

1. PREMATURE AGING, WRINKLES AND LINES

Makeup as we know can block the skin, and leaving it on for longer than needed can really suffocate it. Over time skin starts to lose it's elasticity and ability to repair properly so help it out a bit by gently removing makeup and the daily grim so that it can really regenerate itself overnight. Otherwise you will really leave it dull and speed up the appearance of wrinkles.

2. CONGESTION

No, I don't mean blocked sinuses, but blocked and clogged skin. Your skin is full of teeny tiny holes in very thin dermal layers, these can get clogged up with makeup, oil, dead skin, dirt and grime from the day. You really should double wash at night, once to remove dirt and makeup and the second to cleanse and treat the skin itself. Not sure about you but one cleanse definitely does not remove all my makeup. You do not want to put on that gorgeous serum or night cream mixed in with some left over scum that you have missed on your face.

3. INFLAMMATION + SPOTS

Most of us have a red tone to our skin, some people are affected by rosaccea too so, leaving makeup on overnight (as well as the rest of the daily grime from pollution and dust) can end up irritating the skin. You may not notice it visibly overnight but it will build up and become trickier to unclog those pores which in turn can lead to spots. White heads, black heads, larger cysts and bumps. If you are concerned about enlarged pores too, it is said that dirt, oil, grime in pores not only clogs them up but can in fact stretch them over time. So get cleansing!

4. MILIA 

What is Milia? These are little white spots under the skin's surface and sometimes called milk spots. Thisis caused by dead skin cells, and sometimes excess product and makeup getting trapped in your pores. They are very hard to get rid of naturally as you need to be consistent so you may eventually need professional removal methods, so it would be pretty devastating to get Milia from such a simple task as cleaning your face properly morning and night.

So hopefully these reasons will be enough of a wake up call to ensure that you get into a great habit of cleansing your skin at night, even if you do not wear much or any makeup, it is SO important to take away any nasties and dead skin that might accumulate over the day. Lastly, you don't want any of that grime to be transferred onto your clean pillows right?

What should I use?
If you wear a lot of makeup I recommend:
A alcohol free makeup remover (not wipes) on eyes and face, followed by a gentle cleansing face wash, second wash with the same or an anti-aging one, tone, serum and moisturise main areas (forehead, cheeks) a tiny amount as your preference.
If you wear minimal makeup:
Gentle eye makeup remover or Miellar water, followed by gentle cleanser, still double wash. You can use less product just wash twice still. Follow with your normal tone, serum, moisturising routine as you desire,

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions, Jen xx
