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
Yummy Mummy, Alexandra gets the David treatment
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!
The fabulous Caroline from beautymouth.com gets the David treatment
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.
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.
A lot has been discussed in the HQhair headquarters this week, from the news of Wills and Kate to the Cheryl vs Danni style wars and of course we have been talking about the new and fabulous products we have been updating the site with this week, here’s a quick insight:
Blakegodbold‘s new collection is utterly stunning, the statement necklaces and headpieces are the perfect accessories for the festive party season.
They are all gorgeous but these are our favourites,
Dannii V.S Cheryl
The office was torn this week to whether we thought Dannii or Cheryl had the style factor. Although we must admit we ALL thought Cheryl’s mikey mouse hair was ridiculous! What do you think?
The NARS event!
Our amazing NARS competition closes on November 23rd so it’s your last weekend to enter the competition where you can win an amazing makeover from David Scheffen, friend of HQhair and an incredible make-up artist who has worked on HUGE fashion campaigns and on the likes of Sharon Stone, Nicky Hilton and Rosmund Pike. The event is at our lovely NARS salon in central London, for more information click here>>
Well we simply can’t do a blog without mentioning the Kate and Wills news! Now some of us in the office (the cynical ones) are slightly bored of the commotion already but it’s nice to see a young happy couple so we wish them the best of luck!
We have added so many new products to our ever-growing Christmas store, we even have a separate page for stocking filler suggestions. A couple of fab gifts added this week were from Bare Escentuals, and Moroccanoil .
We have a couple of big Adele fans in the office and we are delighted that her new album is released early next year, we saw her perform a new track on Later with Jools Holland and it’s been shared with the entire office this week. We LOVE it so much!
We hope you all have a lovely weekend! x

The HQgirls are absolutely loving the brand new Secret Hair Boostias products that we are now selling onsite. They are these fabulous hair inserts that create a gorgeous Beehive hair style so easily that even our most un-coordinated HQgal has managed to pull off the style! Each pack includes a set of five different sized hair boostias and you can buy them in a shade that best matches your own hair!
We first came across this product at the Top Model exhibition last month after trying and testing out the product ourselves we decided there and then that they are an absolute must-have for the site! We think they’ll especially be a great for the festive party season to create some fabulously volumised looks! They are super easy to insert and no back-combing is required so it’s a damage-free way of creating a great style!
Check out our Business Director, Jess having her first Secret Hair Boostia inserted!
