Trend Alert: Turbans!

There is no other hat style that oozes old Hollywood glamour quite like the Turban. Made famous by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Greta Garbo and Joan Collins this layered iconic hat style is certainly a statement accessory and we’re delighted that modern day celebrities are championing the look.

Joan Collins also is a huge fan of the Turban hat.

Greta Garbo, a classic Hollywood icon

Today’s style has been updated and is mainly worn with long, flowing locks.

Beyonce is wearing a Turban extremely similar to the South Beach Rocks version.

From the catwalk to HQhair, South Beach Rocks has just launched their version of the classic Turban hat. Now we know this hat style isn’t for everyone but we adore the look in the office, what do you think?

What a FABULOUS day!

Last week we opened our salon doors to three lucky winners of our NARS competition. We treated the three lovely ladies to a fabulous pampering session and NARS makeover in our New Burlington Street hair and beauty salon. Our dear friend and NARS make-up artist genius David Scheffen worked his magic on the ladies makeup while our top salon stylists whipped up some fabulous hairstyles. Here’s a quick sneak peak into the day:

Stunning winner, Rachel opted for a dramatic eye

A full report will be featured on HQhair shortly so keep checking back to see the lovely ladies finished look!

In the evening we poured the fizzy wine and welcomed some lovely beauty bloggers into the salon to let them quiz David on everything from application techniques to chat about working at the Marc Jacobs fashion shows to hot makeup products & tips. By the end of the night we had to handcuff David to the furniture for the fear the bloggers were going to take him from us!

Charlotte from Lipglossiping is clearly delighted with her new look!

Sarah from Pure PR and Priya from BeautyWowza who loved her new eye makeup so much she walked around with her eyes closed!

We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who came and to Elida and the lovely salon girls plus a HUGE thank you to David who was, as usual and absolute star!

Super sweet Charlotte from Lipglossiping has already posted her report of the event, check it out here.

 

We Love Big Buns!

Have you ever wondered how to achieve a stylish big bun look? No it’s not down to the length of your hair but simply with some bun shapers! Exclusive to HQhair.com these nifty bun shapers come in black or blonde and are only £2.85

They are super easy to use. Just tie your hair into a pony tail, pull your pony tail through the hole to the top and then wrap your hair back around the shaper so the bun resembles a doughnut. Secure the shape with a hair band, you may want to tuck or wrap the extra hair around with kirby grips.
