How to Buy Less Stuff and Why You Might Like to Try

I was researching something for a KITSCH.inc client about popular past times and hobbies for people in the UK. As with much of marketing, the focus is increasingly driven by statistics so I had to base my research on data. I couldn’t just pop up a Twitter poll or ask my mates. In comes Statista, […]

How to Go Shampoo-Free and the Benefits of a Low Product Hair Routine

I’ve been shampoo-free since October 2018, sounds gross at first read. Actually it’s not, have a read on if you’re curious. Conventional shampoos, conditioners and styling products (as we know them now) are a relatively modern phenomenon. Sure, civilisations have been concerned with hygiene and beauty products since 4000 BC when the Egyptians and Babylonians […]

Interview with Vanessa Koeb: Hairdresser & Colour Expert from Cuttlefish Eco Salons, Brighton

If you’ve been reading my site for a while or know me personally, you know I’m a nerd when it comes to hair and DIY colouring. Part of me thinks I should have become a hairdresser or a make-up artist, but chances of that happening as I’m turning 30 are looking unlikely. You can’t do […]

5 Colourful Vegan & Cruelty Free Make-Up Brands to Try

It’s been a little while since I wrote a beauty post and I’d forgotten how much of a minefield shopping for genuinely cruelty free & vegan cosmetics can be.

DIY Hair Cut & Colour Using Directions Apple Green, Daffodil & L’Oreal Colorista Bleach

You know me, I like to mess around with my hair and give hairdresser’s mild anxiety. However I’ve worked with beauty and hair brands for over 6 years, whilst being interested in the field since forever. I’m also a bit of a nerd when it comes to the science and the ingredients, so I like to think that I go into DIY hair colouring and cutting with some decent knowledge and a little bravery. I’m not professional, although I would have loved to have seen where that career choice may have taken me, I enjoy being in charge of my hair, whilst also being able to save time and money that I don’t always have to pay a professional. If I could pay a professional every time I feel like changing my hair, I would.
