Festival season is fast approaching, so I thought now would be a great time to showcase some of the top festival trends I have seen for 2018. If festivals are your thing… keep reading to find out my top festival hair and makeup looks for this summer.

Firstly, festival makeup is one of my favourite looks to do because I can get away with wearing so much glitter! Some of my top looks are shown below.

Smokey eyes and lower lash glitter: When it comes to smokey eyes for festival the more blown out the better. Don’t be afraid to use colour to go for a more dramatic and fun look.

Glitter Eyes: Glitter eyes are my festival go to option. Some of my favourite loose pigments is by Peaches Makeup. Loose pigments are a great way to achieve a subtle shimmer or a more opaque pay off.

In your Dreams chest piece: One Word- ideal. This is such an easy way to accessorise a festival outfit without making a huge effort. The in your dreams adhesive gem designs are eye catching and the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. These are available on Pretty Little Thing.

Braids: When it comes to hairstyles I feel like braids is always a easy option to achieve ‘the festival look’. Some of my favourite styles are below.

Instant Colour: What better way to make a statement and have fun then to play around with colour. Instant colour gel and powders are so versatile. Colourful braids using extensions are a more popular trend and definitely one to make you stand out in a crowd.

Festivals clothes are always a great to showcase your personality whether you want to go for an outfit that is completely out there and wild or a more chilled boho chic vibe.

Tassels and Fringe: Fringe jackets are the ultimate festival accessory. My favourite piece this summer is from River Island in this bright red colour.

Prints & Sequins: Festival-goers like to make a impact. It is the one time to go crazy from your day to day wardrobe. Clashing prints, vibrant colours and blinding sequins = festival attire.

Hats: Fedora hats have been a new trend to festival in recent years especially in hot climates such as the infamous Coachella festival.

I hope this short post gave you some inspiration for your next festival, the most important thing is to have FUN and showcase your personality.

Till next time,

What better way to start off a new week than to get yourself pampered. I’m always getting asked so many questions about my hair so I decided to write it in a post. I decided for this occasion I wanted to try out Zero One salon in their brand new location on Wicklow Street in Dublin’s City Centre. I’ve heard amazing reviews about this salon so I knew I was in good hands. I find it so hard to find a good hairdresser and to build up that trust.

After all, your hair is the crown you never take off!

Save to say all of the hype about Zero One salon is true. From the moment I walked in to this luxurious salon the experience was great. The staff were so friendly and made me felt straight at ease. The stand out feature has to be the starlight ceiling in the room were they wash your hair…. talk about relaxing.

I always get a lot of questions about my hair, I don’t wear extensions all of my hair is my own which took a lot of years to grow. I’ve started recently getting baby lights throughout my hair to add some dimension and shine to my hair. I love to curl my hair so the baby lights add that extra bit of glamour to my big waves. I typically get mid to long length layers to add volume and some texture to my long locks. I had two staff members look after me, one girl was the head colourist and a senior stylist. Both staff members were phenomenal at their job and extremely talent.

I always say that hair care is the most important aspect of your hair regardless of the style. I absolutely swear by Keraste products, I realise that they are a bit expensive and might not be in everyone’s price range. The have a wide range of shampoo’s & conditionors to suit every hair type. However, if you are looking to treat yourself try some of their hair masque’s out-their life changing. Usually around Christmas time salons have some Keraste hair pack gift sets for sale so keep an eye out for those.

Overall, I couldn’t recommend Zero One salon enough, there is two locations the main salon is in Greystones & their second and newest location on Wicklow Street in Dublin’s City Centre.

So there you have it, my thoughts on the brand new Zero One Salon on Wicklow Street.
