Beauty A-ha moments
I liked the feature on Beauty Aha! moments in October's Red Magazine, and it got me thinking about what revelatory beauty moments I've had. The biggest has to be Yuko hair straightening - I first had it done when it came to the UK five years ago. With trepidation, I went to the Yuko flagship salon for a consultation, and was put at ease by the fact that the staff were clearly so conscientious. It turned out to be ideal for my not-quite-curly, not-quite-straight, fine-but-lots-of-it hair. I didn't have noticeable regrowth and it lasted for ages. I had it done again a year or so later. Then I went wavy for a few years, but last year I was tempted by the Shiseido Senscience hair straightening at Billi Currie salon in Chiltern Street. It's like thermal hair straightening 2.o, giving a less poker-straight finish. Again it revolutionised my hair - drying time cut from 45 minutes to five minutes, and now I could have a fringe and choppy layers without them going bushy. It's grown out now, but I'd definately have it done again. What are your beauty aha moments?
