Win one of twenty Handirests – the ultimate in nail care accessories

The Buckinghamshire based company originally developed the Handirest for use throughout manicures, and the comfortable, latex-free cushion provides a stable base on which to place your hand. This clever tool holds the hand comfortably whilst supporting the wrist and fingers throughout the application of nail polish, gels, foils, acrylics and more intricate nail art, and has quickly become a home-manicure essential for many.

The popular manicure tool stabilizes the hand keeping fingers in the optimum position, whilst still allowing the user flexibility to move the Handirest to help them minimize wobbles and achieve the best results.

As most nail professionals will testify, it’s often difficult to keep still throughout the duration of a manicure, so the Handirest provides an effective solution, allowing more control, steadying those who may be a little shaky or those who simply have fidgety fingers! The front of the Handirest is slightly raised and fingers are separated to ensure a smudge-free mani, meanwhile the curved front edge, allows flexibility where you are able to bring the hand further forward when applying polish in a downward motion, or keep the fingers slightly flatter for other kinds of nail applications.

All Handirest’s are durable, hygienic and resistant to acetone, allowing them to be easily and quickly cleaned using nail polish remover, acetone or a sanitizing spray for use time and time again.

Available in a choice of colours from www.handirest.com

About Handirest Ltd 

Based in Buckinghamshire, Handirest Ltd was founded by inventor, Adrian Houlder in 2012. The Handirest manicure accessory has seen a number of versions before the product we know today came to market. Realising that there was nothing available to assist with manicures in this way, Adrian came up with an idea to separate the fingers and raises them on this tactile foam cushion in a way that is not only comfortable, but also allows for a more controlled manicure whether it be in a salon or the comfort of the users own home. Since its launch, Handirest has been embraced by salons and beauty wholesalers along with online and teleshopping retailers and department stores. Additional information about Handirest Ltd and their products can be found at www.handirest.com

Here is a video on how the Handirest was developed

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes… A professional makeup brand setting trends backstage at fashion weeks around the world. Today, M·A·C means so many things to its millions of fans in every corner of the planet, but a global beauty phenomenon has to begin somewhere.

Make-Up Art Cosmetics started life in Toronto, Canada. Makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo became frustrated by the lack of makeup that photographed well, so they decided to create their own. At first, they made the cosmetics in their kitchen and sold them straight from the salon to fellow makeup artists, as well as models and photographers. Soon, stylists and fashion editors got in on the action. As the magazine credits racked up and word-of-mouth popularity grew, the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store.

Their approach was chic utility, with the makeup coming in black pots rather than compacts. While other major makeup brands at the time were predominantly skincare companies, M·A·C chose instead to establish itself as the ultimate colour authority. Professional makeup artists manned the counter, an industry first. One of the most popular offerings was an intense matte red lipstick, which got a boost with an appearance in a photo-shoot of the fast-rising Madonna.

The company took the industry by storm, offering a wide range of products that blended street savvy with glamorous style and panache. Behind the counter, the M·A·C approach was notably different. Rather than driving sales through traditional promotional techniques, M·A·C relied on the integrity of its carefully formulated product line. Adding to the image was a touch of outrageousness. A company that honours individuality and self-expression above all else, it brought a brilliant sense of drag and theatre into the sleek M·A·C stores and department store counters.

M·A·C is sold today in over 105 countries around the world. It remains committed to developing new categories, products and over 50 collections each year, all of which continue to serve the demand of consumers and professional makeup artists alike.

Collaborations with adored names from popular culture, art and fashion have included such names as Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Brooke Shields. These continue to enhance M·A·C’s relevance and reach to existing fans as well as new ones, while our makeup Artists’ rock-steady presence backstage at over 200 fashion week shows around the world, working with names from Prabal Gurung to Vivienne Westwood, secures the envied status of M·A·C as the world’s leading beauty trendsetter.

ON FINDING THE ONE – AND LOOKING TEN YEARS YOUNGER

ON FINDING THE ONE – AND LOOKING TEN YEARS YOUNGER

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

How many times do you hear about ‘finding the one’ and ‘when you are least expecting it they will appear’.  It was certainly the case with me, and with the most important relationship of all, My Hairdresser.

At certain times in my life I have found a hairdresser who understands my hair, and it has lasted for several months or even years – until they leave or move away.  Then their successor who promises to deliver, lets you down, and you go on the search again.

After living in London for many years, and moving out to Buckinghamshire two years ago, I have been on a mission to find a suitable person to manage my rather tricky head of hair, and create a few miracles in the process.

From Toni & Guy to more ‘boutique’ hairdressers, I have tried them all, and it is actually six in total, and just when I had given up and decided it was me and not them, a miracle happened.

I walked into a hairdresser in Gerrards Cross called BROX as the owner Darren, was having an auction for his own Charity, Liberty’s Legacy, and I was donating a prize for the auction for him.

There was something about the way he said ‘Please come back I would like to do your hair’ that resonated with me, and although it took a few months, I did eventually go back and hey presto – I had found ‘the one’.

It was late afternoon, and once he had delivered THE HAIRCUT, the only people who remained were a few staff and Darren himself.  They all exclaimed how different I looked and how much younger I had become with this major transformation.

I naturally felt that they were being kind, or supporting their boss, but did see an amazing difference in the thickness and style of the hair as I flounced out of the Salon.

The following day I was visited by my family, and my daughter who takes no prisoners, commented on the youthfulness of the cut and that it really was the best hairdo she could remember me having.  Praise indeed, so it was not just a figment of my imagination.

The extraordinary difference with Darren is that he actually cares about each individual who walks into his salon, and each hair style is bespoke to the person standing in front of him, taking age, personality and lifestyle into consideration.

The added proof is actually in the type of clientele he attracts, from celebrities to film stars, especially as Pinewood is not far away and maybe because Gerrards Cross has been nicknamed The Mini Hollywood.  But I also did spot an elderly lady who he was kindly serving tea and biscuits to prior to her appointment, so he welcomes everyone equally.

BROX have only been in Gerrards Cross for three years, and his training was in London at one of the major Salons prior to that.

But if you are looking for ‘the one’, then why don’t you try Darren at BROX in Gerrards Cross. I know that some of our readers are scattered across the country, and so perhaps you are inspired and will start looking for your own ‘Brox’ or ‘Darren’ closer to home.  But for those of you not too far away, or even if you have a bit of a drive to get there, it would be time well spent, and unlike other relationships, I am willing to share.

Here is what Darren has to say

“Of course, quality is key and it is my intention to continue to grow the Brox business so that it is known for its attention to detail, personal client care, a warm and welcoming environment staffed by fully trained stylists offering a superb client experience that clients look forward to repeating many times.”

Set in the heart of Gerrards Cross, Brox is located on a bustling High Street with ample parking and the opportunity to shop from a variety of exclusive boutiques, plus the option to enjoy eating in the many cafes and restaurants nearby.
