What do you do?
I’m the editor of three websites; Hair Romance, Nail Romance and Mr and Mrs Romance. I’ve authored two hairstyle e-books and I’m currently working on a new book project. I also consult with brands and small businesses in the beauty industry on campaigns and social media.
Would beg, borrow or steal for… Emmanuelle Alt’s wardrobe.
Favourite hair accessory?
Bobby pins! The styling options are infinite.
How do you decide the best haircut/style for your face/look?
Hair should reflect your personality. I say rules are meant to be broken! If you’re comfortable and confident you can pull off any style.
When choosing a new look, I recommend taking some photos to your hairdresser and having a consultation to find out how they can customise it to your hair. If you’re not sure what you like, make sure you tell your stylist what you don’t like so that that you don’t end up with a style you can’t stand.
You met your husband in the same street as your hairdresser…tell us, what was it about your hair that caught your husband’s eye?
It was hard to miss my bright pink hair! I was growing out my hair from a super short pixie and had dyed it pink and white to disguise the fact it was that in-between stage. He says he’d never seen hair like it and loved my short hair.
You run the oh-so popular blog, Hair Romance what inspires you to keep creating such fabulous content for your readers?
I can turn any conversation into hair so I never run out of topics to write about! I could talk about hair for years and I love seeing readers try my hairstyles. When I read a message from a reader who has started to love their hair it makes me so happy and that’s what inspires me.
