I’ve been very busy doing celebrity photoshoots in London, which is always great fun.
After working with EastEnders actress Charlie Brooks – who is set to make a dramatic return as Janine Butcher – I then went on to style the hair of the bubbly Strictly Come Dancing professional Diane Buswell.
Diane’s hair has gone from a striking cherry red to a beautiful flaming orange, and it was great fun to work with her to create a super stylish front cover look . She’s a great person to be around, and it was much more like fun than work!
I’m still not able to visit my home in France, so I’ve got out my watercolour paints and am trying to capture how beautiful it looks on top of the hill in the ancient village of Cordes-sur-Ceil.
It’s good to keep busy outside of the salon, so I’ve been out for lots of lovely summer lunches and suppers with friends, sitting with them in their gardens and also rediscovering all my favourite places – The Ivy in Winchester, Lime Wood in the New Forest, and The Greyhound in Stockbridge to name just a few! In my new townhouse, the inside is just as I like it so now l am working on restoring the garden, which is starting to take shape just in time for summer.
I’m having a meeting next, week to discuss our new salon collection for the season. We’ll be putting together ideas and mood boards, and I’m very excited to see what comes out of it. Watch this space!
