If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.

 

Our body and skin faces stress on a frequent basis, whether it’s from the environmental damage or the stress within our daily lives. The connection between the gut, our brain and our skin is undeniably linked and once one function is under stress, the other functions can face a similar strain – it’s often a domino effect.

Our skin, as the body's boundary continuously faces pathogens that develops a complex microbial ecosystem, this disturbance upsets the balance between the gut and skin microbiome and the result can accelerate the degeneration process and develop signs of premature ageing. When under stress, emotional strain or anxiety, it can modulate stress signals that in turn cause the gut and skin to flare up.

Alongside Probiotics, Prebiotics and Symbiotics, Supplements offer an enhanced solution. The Intensive Beauty Dose is formulated with Antioxidants to reduce the stress from free radical damage (combatting the external aggressors) and as a result the lipids and ceramides found within the barrier are strengthened resulting in a restored barrier function. A stronger defence system between the skin and gut ensures the decrease in wrinkle depth, fine lines and dullness.

Truly transformative, encouraging youth in all forms.
