Kenneth Soh Loves Alpha H

Kenneth Soh, aka Über amazing make-up artist to the worlds top fashion mags, celebs and super-models has declared his love for Alpha H, loud and proud to HQhair!

“Alpha-H gives immediate dramatic results to ensure beautiful skin, it means I can have the perfect canvas every time I do someone’s make-up.”

And could their possibly be anything more important to a make-up artist than a flawless face to work with? Having worked with the likes of Daisy Lowe, Leona Lewis and Linda Evangelista and on blockbuster campaigns for Vivienne Westwood and LO’real Kenneth is certainly no amateur, and with such high-profile clients Kenneth certainly needs to be able to rely on his tools:

“The difference with Alpha-H is that it just works, instantly and consistently.”

Pay day! Well what weirdo doesn’t love pay day?! It meant we could splurge on all our favourite beauty goodies! Check out what I (Roz: Online Content Extradinaire) bought!

This month I’m off to Bestival so I stocked up on some festival essentials such has this gorgeous Blakegodbold headband and the Outdoor All In One Wash from Burt’s Bees. Plus I’m desperate to hold on to my tan just that little bit longer so I’m indulging my legs in Scott Barnes Body Bling (it’s AMAZING!) False eyelashes for some full on boy winking action and this smokin’ hot nail varnish from OPI (shade: Just A Little Rosti At This).

Fat Friday! The boys in the HQhair office indulged in a little something we like to call… FAT FRIDAY today…

Mr designer himself opted for a Calzone pizza from the Italian next door!

Our chief web geek, Lucas AKA Mr Tea opted for a full on Fat Friday Burger and Chips combo.
