One of my favourite products EVER has to be Kevin Murphy Hair Resort. To be fair I do love the whole of the Kevin Murphy range and I’m very proud to stock it in Hooka but Hair Resort probably has to be my all time favourite product!
I’ve used Hair Resort on my own hair for years now and it’s because of the benefits I have experienced since using it that I rave on about it to all my customers.
So what exactly does it do? I think Hair Resort was one of the first products that I got my hands on that I could see and feel the difference with as soon as I used it. It comes in a 150ml bottle and it lasts FOREVER. You literally need to use a pea sized amount and work it through your hair when it’s slightly damp or towel dried, when you dry the product into the hair it bulks up the hair, preventing it from looking too soft or fluffy. It helps make the hair more pliable and makes styling so much easier. I find the product works as well on shorter hair styles as it does on longer ones but I would use slightly less amount as the length increases to avoid the hair from looking too greasy. Once the hair is dry you can run your hands through and feel the difference.
As the product dries into the hair it creates a “beachy” textured slightly dry feeling to the hair which is perfect for when you want to enhance the texture of your haircut. I would recommend this product to guys with fine hair to help give the hair a bulkier thicker feel but it’s also great for guys with thick hair to control the volume and density.

The mens industry is the fastest growing market at the moment, even through difficult economical climates, the male market has continued to grow at a rapid pace. We are seeing men are spending a lot more on their appearance whether it’s on their hair, skin or clothes.
Tom Ford who has been at the forefront of fashion for decades has recently announced that he is launching a mens skincare and grooming range which I am really excited to see and try.
The range currently consists of 8 products, a purifying face cleanser, concealer, hydrating lip balm, bronzing gel, purifying mud mask, eye treatment, daily moisturiser and a skin revitalizing concentrate.
The Tom Ford brand has done exceptionally well in the grooming market up to now. I’m a huge fan of many of his fragrances especially the Private Blend range. My favourite is the “Vanille Tobacco” fragrance.
The cost of Tom Ford clothing and products are high but as a consumer I know that the products are made with the best quality ingredients and the design of his collections are all modern classics.
I can’t wait to try these products which are out this Autumn! I’m sure this range will grow just like his fragrance and clothing lines.
My third article is now on Fashionbeans.com.
I decided to write a feature on dealing with men’s thick, wavy or unruly hair after so many guys had written comments after my first two articles.
I was recently interviewed for the Liverpool Daily Post for their business section called “Step Into My Office”.

Here is my second article that I wrote for FashionBeans.com titled “What are we doing for you today”, it’s an article about how to choose a haircut.
My first article did really well, it’s the most viewed and shared column on FashionBeans this year which I’m over the moon about.

On February 17th I spent the afternoon filming in Barbara Daley hair salon for Channel 4 programme “Super Scrimpers”.
I was asked to go and test different shampoos which were of a different price range and give my views and opinions on each one. All three shampoos were in plain bottles and I had to guess which was the cheapest, mid-price and expensive shampoo.
As I recommend professional hair products in my salon I was concerned that I was going to get the whole test wrong! There was three stylists including myself testing the shampoos and had to mark them out of five. I have to say I was massively surprised at the difference in the quality, fragrance and lather with each shampoo. I luckily managed to figure out which one was which

Growing up I have always been massively into my pop music. I remember every Sunday religiously listening to The UK Top 40 on Radio 1 to see who was in Number 1 that week and watching Top of The Pops every Thursday night to watch my idols on stage.
Everything about the music industry has changed over time but we all still love a boyband or girlgroup.
Thanks to programmes like X Factor and Pop Idol everyone growing up wants to be and now possible has the chance to be a pop star, we all think it’s a glamorous lifestyle and you get to hang out with other celebrities and get to have your hair done and wear all new clothes, you also get to travel the world and see different countries.
The reality of what life is really like when you’re young, rich and famous has been shown on ITV2’s “The Big Reunion” every week. Seeing the pressure and the exhaustion each band went through is an eyeopener and I’m sure I’m not the only one who used to think that they were all just best mates having a laugh getting to do what they love…. So many of those band members have paid a price for the fame they once had. It has been so interesting watching the stories unfold each week with the different bands involved in the show, Five, 911, B’Witched and of course we have all seen over the years the ongoing story of Kerry Katona from the original Atomic Kitten line up.
I have to admit I couldn’t have been anymore excited though than for my trip to London to go and see The Big Reunion Live at The Hammersmith Apollo, the first gig for most of these bands for about ten years . I suppose for many of these bands they have seen the success of Take That reforming and see it as a great opportunity to do it all again.
I have been in my element over the last few years, Take That, Spice Girls, Boyzone and ….. have all gone back on the road. And so now it’s time for 911, Liberty X, Honeyz, B*witched, 5ive and Atomic Kitten. Seeing all of them on stage was unbelievable, I think watching them all on The Big Reunion and seeing what issues they have with each other and dealing with fame it was very clear to see how emotional it was for every band to be back on stage performing together again. I thought some of them would have looked uncomfortable or unfit on stage but all the bands looked pretty slick each performing 3 of their biggest hits. I can only hope we will see each and every one of them back in the charts once more!
