To re-create Lois’s look apply L’Oreal Tec Ni Art Liss Control in pea sized amounts to damp hair and blow dry with a paddle brush. Once dry take each section and apply a small amount of Iron Finish to each section (a hazel nut size amount should be enough for the whole head) then continue with straightening irons. Blow Dry fringe with Large round brush. Next take a centre parting and pull hair up high to form 2 pony tails on either side. Take ends of each pony tail at the tips and roll up and pin into place to form two small buns on either side. Then finish off with 2 red bows.

Eve And Cameron with their winning tickets …..
Last Sunday evening’s plans were limited to family dinner and LoveFilm session; I was pretty content with this until I spotted YSalon’s contest to win two AlunaGeorge tickets for the Newcastle date of their Body Music worldwide tour. Luck was on my side, as Angela Lowery (company director) announced me as the winner.
Buzzing with excitement at the prospect of winning something, and welcoming new additions to the list of bands I’ve seen live in the last decade, I instantly hit Facebook to broadcast the news and invite music loving mate and AlunaGeorge fan, Cameron Allonby.
After facing and overcoming the quintessential female issue of what to wear? I opted for a paisley dress purchased from a little vintage shop, with turquoise tights for added quirk, staple black brogues and a bowler hat with loose hair and red lipstick. Due to dropping in at Digital’s neighbour pub for a quick drink and toilet stop, we missed half London born singer/rapper Leon T Pearl’s set. Iit was adequate time, however, to gauge the 20-something’s respectably Streets-like, solid vocals and lyrics (particularly on new single “Take You To The Market” ) The jury’s out on whether his performance met lukewarm reception from attendees, or the crowd was simply small; numbers increased slightly as the night went on.
Luckily for Danish electropop newcomer Mø any atmosphere previously lacking was soon compensated for upon her arrival to the stage. Accompanied by a full band set-up, sporting a neon blue leg wrap, dollar adorned top and abstract projected images, it was evident vocalist and only official band member Karen Marie was taking no prisoners! What followed was the most interactive, entertaining set of the night and my personal favourite, prompting crowds to indulge in trance-like swaying to mimic the singer’s gyrating hip moves. The Scandinavian artist’s infectious energy, catchy hooks and strong vocals undoubtedly captured attention and potentially earned her a good few new fans. The stand out track was “Waste of Time” which has gained substantial exposure from featuring on Kopparberg’s latest advertisement.
Following up such a performance would be nerve-inducing for the most experienced of musicians, yetAlunaGeorge delivered, confidently playing singles from their debut album Body Music “Attracting Flies”, the high charting collaboration with Disclosure “White Noise”, along with fan favourites; “You Know You Like It” and “Best Be Believing” front-woman Aluna Francis strutted around exuding stage presence, while producer George Reid silently and understatedly did his thing. The duo’s contrasting personality’s complement each other plenty, but a good performance could have transformed into a great performance, had the crowd been invited to the party. Unlike their predecessors there was very little in the way of connection with the audience, which was unexpected and disappointing. I’m reminded of a gig I attended a week or so before at Newcastle Student’s Union, with post-hardcore band Heights headlining – despite the soul crushingly sparse crowd, thefoursome presented a united front and gave it their all, the atmosphere electric and equal to that of a sold out arena show.
Mo were indisputably the act of the night for me. While I enjoyed discovering new music in the shape of Leon T Pearl, it’s a shame AlunaGeorge fell short this time and choose style over substance - hopefully thetwosome will take heed of fan response/reviews and follow in the footsteps of their lesser known support artist to ensure they are not outshone for the remainder of the Body Music tour.

Known as the designer to have kick - started the body con trend this is one of my favourite shows to work on I just adore the skill and craftsmanship that goes into these beautiful constructed works of art. and this season was no exception.
Gliding along the catwalk like amazon warriors with raffia fringing giving a tribal touch to the outfits which adhered to the body as if by magic in a rich colour palette of burnt orange, fuchsia and deep blues with chains of Swarovski crystals one of my favourite being a figure hugging flesh toned gown embodied with deep blue crystals and ruby necklace.
Hair and make -up were equally something Cher would have been proud of with make up almost like a tribal mark drawing underneath the eye. Hair was super sleek and polished with a strong centre parting ears were on show this look was created by Session stylist Anthony Turner whom I was assisting backstage as part of the L’oreal Professional team.
To recreate this look use ghd ‘s to get hair super straight. We applied Loreal Tec ni Art liss ultimum cream prior to blow-dry. two sections were taken out at the front and two more were secured with elastic band in the nape, the rest of the hair was left to fall over top. Some hair extensions were used to create a super long length. We hope you like it
Hailed has the king of cool in the fashion industry with a celebrity A list of fans to die for when you attend a Mr Holland show you can expect to see Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof and Kelly Osbourne gracing the FROW.
In a crowed car park in London’s Soho the scene was set to showcase a exciting 90’s inspired collection featuring super luxe floral, Jacquard, patent , shiny leather with the garments taking on a relaxed form with beanie hats and paired up prints. Dishevelled hair played on the rebel image further.
Hair had an unkept feel about it being softly tousled has if effortlessly styled into a centre part and tucked behind the ear, make up was a bronze smokey eye and nude lip.
To recreate this look hair was loosely tonged using a large barrel tong then using L’Oreal fresh dust spray through the hair to give texture and separation a centre part is held in place with hair grips secured at the sides by the temples.
