As a nation of coffee lovers we drink more now than we ever did. Where would we be without our hit of caffeine in the morning to get us started, and in the middle of the day to boost our energy levels and although coffee gets its fair share of good and bad press here’s a great way of getting the all the benefits without getting the caffeine fix.
Did you know that it can be beneficial to your hair ? Especially the brunettes amongst us ? Coffee softens and adds shine to the hair. It also brings out natural tones and highlights, its not expensive and its probably sitting right their in your cupboard.
To make your coffee treatment infusion take 2 tablespoons of granulated/instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of your regular shampoo, 1/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda (this removes any product buildup) Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. apply to wet hair, leave on for 2 minutes then rinse. finish with your regular conditioner.
caution not to be used on blondes.
Earlier this year in the cold depths of winter one very early morning when the tubes decided to go on strike Angela made the what should have been a 20 minute trip ( which turn into a 90 minute trip ) across London to the Crea8 studios to meet up with the talented new band Arthur Beatrice to style their hair for a feature on the Topman next generation. After giving all the boys a trim in walks the stunningly beautiful Ella with a mane long rich chocolatey brown hair. Angela blow dried Ella’s with a range of products from L’oreal Tec ni Art (available in salon) then created mermaid waves using a large babyliss styler.

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.
