Top tresses

It’s one of the most low-maintenance hair styles that you can do at home, and perhaps that’s why the topknot has become a favourite with celebrities. Everyone from Priyanka Chopra to Kate Hudson has been opting for fuss-free styles over the last few weeks and it looks surprisingly chic – yes, your go-to relaxed style is now worthy of being worn on the Met Gala red carpet. To try the look at home simply twist your pony tail into a messy bun and hold with hair grips. Easy!

Davines launches in the UAE

Davines haircare launched their products and treatments in the UAE this week and we could not be more excited. The brand, which is originally from Italy but is already huge in The US, UK and the rest of Europe, uses natural, sustainable products and is a favourite with professional hair stylists – proving their products should be as good as they say they are. Their most iconic product has to be its Sea Salt Spray, which will give you boho beach babe style waves, while their leave in conditioning Hair Mist will give you smooth hair all day. Available now at For in-salon treatments, visit Be Bar on Jumeirah Beach Road in Dubai.

Bassam in the UAE

Lebanese make-up artist Bassam Fattouh has just launched his make-up range in Debenhams stores. The range, which is here in the UAE for the first time, includes his eagerly anticipated Velours Liquid Matte lipstick range. Its silky consistency means it doesn’t fry your lips like other matte glosses, and of course the colour lasts all day. As well as this Bassam, is also debuting his Kajal Kingdom range of pencil eyeliners, which has intensely pigmented formula to give you the darkest, boldest colour possible. Available now at Debenhams stores nationwide.

It’s heating up out there and we need to be taking care of our hair, which is easily damaged by the sun’s rays. The new GK Miami Bombshell Hair Taming treatment is designed for blonde or highlighted hair (including those of us with ombre coloured hair) and will repair and protect your hair from obsessive sun exposure as well as putting the shine back into your tresses after colouring.

Glam goth

I love Kat Von D’s new Pastel Goth Eye Palette, which include eight bright and bold shades to give you on-trend make-up for summer. The shadows have high pigment so they’ll really show up on any skin tone and won’t wear off throughout the day. All Kat’s products are 100 per cent vegan, too!
