Alex Perry ghd Hair Prep Ready

Hair Director: Sophie Roberts for ghd

INSPIRATION

“The hair concept is minimal – we were inspired by the clean, simple and carefree look of how a model would tie her own hair up for a casting or a fitting. Without aspiring to, this look exudes stylish elegance in a modern, chic way. It is very much atoned to the Alex Perry collection.” – Sophie Roberts

“Sarah Murdoch inspired the hair look for me. I love how she effortlessly throws her hair back into a loose chignon and still looks so beautiful and elegant,”

“I love working with Sophie Roberts and ghd. She is such a fantastic stylist and so well respected. We have a long, ongoing working-relationship together and it’s been brilliant working with her again this year.” – Alex Perry Continue Reading

Hair Director: Sophie Roberts for ghd

INSPIRATION

“The collection this year is inspired from Karla’s Croatian roots and themes of traditional national dress. The hair pays tribute to this through the loose, long low slung plait which is styled into a centre part. The look exudes a youthful, feminine and romantic essence.” – Sophie Roberts Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
