Glamour Hair - - Hair Goddess - GH

Who are your favourite beauty icons?

I adore Patti Smith, Bianca Jag­ger, Nina Si­mone, Bette Davis and Sade.

Your skin is gor­geous. What is your reg­u­lar skin­care rou­tine?

Drink­ing as much wa­ter as I can, a sim­ple cleanser (I like eucerin prod­ucts), toner spray, face cream, blem­ish cream (as needed), un­der­eye cream and the oc­ca­sional face mask.

What hair and makeup lessons did you learn from your mother?

That beauty is from the in­side out. My mother al­ways said, “Beauty is as beauty does.” I never un­der­stood that then, but I do now.

What’s your favourite fit­ness rou­tine?

A mix­ture of car­dio and strength train­ing. Does any­one re­ally like to work out? ex­cept that it does make you feel good and stronger, men­tally clearer and ready to take on the world.

When you choose to wear lip­stick, what’s your go-to colour?

cur­rently none, but for lips I do love bright colours – red, deep pinks, even the right kind of orange is beau­ti­ful.

A les­son your cur­rent self could have taught your teenage self?

All girls don’t have to look the same. Do what feels good for you!

What hair stuff can you not live with­out?

Scarves and large, black cloth elas­tics.

Guilty-plea­sure food?

Bread! Damn it! Soft, yummy, crois­sant-like bread.

Things you need in your dress­ing room be­fore a per­for­mance?

My pi­ano, fruit, tea and some space.

What most re­laxes you?

A book, a nap, the breeze and the sound of the ocean.
