Zeba Hair Salon Review

By | Hair Stylists, Uncatagorized | 6 Comments

Nice hair! Well I know thank you! Wish I could say I did this myself, but it is all the handywork of Salon Zeba. I was invited in recently to experience their services, and what a nice treat it was. I was told that my hair has a split personality so to speak. Oily roots and dry broken ends, just great! Well fear not because there is a solution..my stylist prescribed Kérastase Specifique balancing shampoo for oily roots and sensitised lengths. She also gave me a conditioning treatment on the ends.

You can see my before picture, I had my hair hidden in a bun!

I was pretty impressed with the salon set up. It is a nice bright airy space with lots of stations, they even have a second space upstairs for when it gets really busy that nearly doubles the capacity! Usually I dread the basin, but I was amazed when I sat down and next thing I knew the chair magically moved and I was lying flat out. Which made the experience more like lying in bed, I had to concentrate really hard while I was getting my treatment done that I wouldn’t fall asleep! I am sure that these mechanical beds have been around for a while now, but I normally get my hair done in my house these days by one of my hair dresser friends so haven’t seen the inside of a salon in a while…

I opted for a curly blow dry in the end, with not too much volume. I can’t believe how long my hair has gotten! It is very seldom you get to see your hair from the back like this, I should definitely get a cut. I have to say I really enjoyed my experience and I was kindly given some goodies to try at home. I will do a post on that at a later stage. I will definitely be heading back the next time I have a night out.

Fashion Shoot Makeup

I did a shoot the other day and it was an absolute fabulous day, so excuse the poor quality of the pictures, but my phone camera just couldn’t handle the sunshine! I will share the finished photos when they are released. Amber was the model and she is so gorgeous already, we wanted to keep the make-up really simple. As there was alot of skin on show I made sure to really hydrate the skin. I usually use Body Shop’s Strawberry Body Butter, but I recently picked up some in M&S when I was in there recently. I am a huge fan of their tights and salads, a weird combo I know! Well now I can add their body butters to that list too.

On Amber’s face I also really hydrated her skin, but this time with Clinique’s Moisture Surge for Normal/Combination Skin. I love how lightweight and readily absorbed this moisturiser is. Skin just drinks it up and it quenches any thirst meaning it is perfectly prepped for the foundation. She has such great skin with the most beautiful freckles. I lightly evened out her skin tone with MAC Face and Body which created a thin veil allowing her sunkissed skin to glow through.

For the eyes, I lightly buffed a light peach eyeshadow called Samoa Silk into the contour of the eye and slightly shimmery cream colour called Dazzlelight to soften the edges, both from MAC.

I then lined the eyes with Estee Lauder’s Double Wear stay in place eye pencil in Chocolate which was smudged out and softened. I used my much loved Eyelure 020 False Eyelashes and applied lashings of Lancôme’s Hypnôse Mascara, which is simply THE BEST mascara on the market.

I warmed up her cheeks and décolletage with the Terre Saharienne Collecter bronzer from YSL, the texture is soft and silky. It contains a polymer that works with the skin and helps maintain its moisture level. It also has this gorgeous snake skin print engraved which I nearly wanted to preserve!

To complete the look I used a little Hush Liptar from OCC Cosmetics dabbed on with my finger to keep it soft and subtle.

We had a great days shoot, we were absolutely blessed with the weather. It rained so hard all night that it actually kept me away all night. The day of the shoot wasn’t the best, but as soon as we got to the Farmleigh to shoot, the clouds parted and we were basked in sunshine! Happy days, no need for the wellies that I packed.
