If you follow us, you must know by now how excited we get about Halloween or any festivity really. Whatever the holiday, it gives you an excuse to dress up, buy all sorts of unnecessary items and potentially if you’re feeling brave enough, colour your hair crazy! Crazy coloured hair can look even better if styled properly, so in this week’s post we’ve put together a series of looks which really inspire us. At our Chelsea blow dry bar, we are able to recreate all these looks for you… Keep on reading!

1 – Braids, come at me. With all the different shades of colour, braids often look amazing. The lighter and darker tones blend. These hair styles are totally making us want to colour our hair… You feel me?!


2- Total updo. Is it just us, or does coloured hair look so much better in an updo?! We love the striking and edgy effect it creates. Mix it up by adding subtle braids and backcombing it slightly to create a ‘messy’ look.


3 – Halfway there. If you ask us, we find half updos so chic. Whether you’re just after the hair grips or a messy top knot bun, it can instantly elevate your look. How much more fun are all these hairstyles with coloured hair?!


Halloween is the perfect time to experiment with your hair, so why not do it with us at our London blow dry bar? Recreating all these looks can be fun, especially during our Halloween special event where there will be lots of make-up artists to complete the full Halloween look for you! And if you’re not into any of this dressing up shindig… why not just pop in for a good old blow dry and manicure?! We would love to see you at aer! Please email for more information on time and availability. Alternatively, you can book online or call us on 02072449499.

Autumn Favourites

As the leaves start to fall and our warm coats are dug out, we can start to look forward to chilly days out and cosy nights in with our Autumn favourites. We’re sharing five of our luxury fashion and beauty Autumn staples that will help us embrace the colder months ahead!

  1. Over-the-Knee Boots

No one does elegant over the knee boots quite like Stuart Weitzman. The ‘Highland’ style boot, extremely popular with those in the fashion industry is a key footwear addition to your wardrobe – and here’s why.  Made from sumptuous suede in an array of colours (we particularly love the dove grey) the boots are beautifully made with a tighter fit around the leg for maximum flattery!  Despite the hefty price tag we can guarantee it’ll be worth it with this versatile style suiting a jeans and jumper combo just as much as with skirts or dresses. Dress up or down we guarantee you’ll get plenty of wear out of these statement boots this season! Check them out here as well as the matching ‘Lowland’ style and newly introduced ‘Tieland’ style.

2. The Chunky Knit

No Autumnal wardrobe is complete without the ultimate chunky knit. We admit, it can take a while to find “the one” but aim for neutral colours in creams, camel or black for maximum wearing potential! Having said this, also consider pink which has been a growing colour trend this season for knitwear.

Milan & Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer ’17 Hair & Beauty Roundup

We’ve been spoilt for choice over the last month with the Spring Summer ’17 fashion week trends and street style inspiration. The hair and beauty looks have been on fire and we can’t wait to share our favourites from Milan & Paris in our roundup. If you want to catch up on the London and New York shows, check out our posts here.



Bright eyes, sunshine yellow and hair tied back to accentuate accessories such as these beautiful earrings.

It was all about thick brows at the Prada show and a very natural makeup look by Pat McGrath.




Jeremy Scott channelled Barbie girls from the 90s as the vibe for his show. We’re talking contouring, false lashes, big lips, blonde wigs!

Inspired by Marie Antoinette, the Fendi show was all about opulence and glamour.  Models sported sparkly lips and cat eye eyeliner.

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

Light makeup with speckles across the nose and cheeks enhanced the bohemian theme of the show.

We can expect a chic sophistication from the Paris shows, think understated glamour and effortless hair and makeup. Even Kim Kardashian West, barely seen without full make up from her trusted ‘glam squad’ went bare faced at the Balenciaga show!


The soft plaited pigtails at Etam portrayed an effortless style with a gentle blush on the cheeks offering a cute rosy glow.

Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten presented a more angular, sharp aesthetic with side parts by Sam McKnight and M.A.C Taupe shadow on the eyes. Veiling and sunglasses were also worn as key accessories, with the set design consisting of iced flowers by floral artist Azuma Makoto, models walking past blocks of large ice containing flowers. Only a spritz of Evain was used on the hair to keep the look natural.

Acne went for a moodier tone.  Make up artist Aaron de Mey opted for MAC Deep Rooted lipstick with a lavendar colour palette.  Poker straight hair added to the moody theme of the show.

Here we see another “no make up” makeup look – definitely a trend emerging here!  Peter Phillips used Dior Forever Foundation and a balm to the eyelids.  Hair stylist Guido Palau French braided buns and top knots.


Vionnet Paris

Hair by Stephane Lancien for L’Oreal hair.  Here we see a poetic look with bejewelled twisted jewellery on the face.  Makeup by Tom Cheux using M.A.C cosmetics.
