Hair Director: Renya Xydis for Cloud Nine

Birthdays are always a tough time for me. I love the presents and cake, but everything else about clocking up another year is rather depressing. I argued with myself for weeks about what post I would put up today (my birthday) and it occurred to me that I am one of those people who some consider ‘impossible’ to buy a gift for.
