Each week we’re asking a different Scottish make-up artist or hair stylist to let us in on the one hero beauty product that’s always in their kit.
This week it’s the turn of Lauren from Lauren at the Loft. Here’s what she says:
HOW DID YOU BECOME A HAIR STYLIST?
“My journey as a hair stylist started off in the well-known chain salon Vidal Sassoon. I later moved to a local salon in my home town that was full of creative personalities and so much opportunity to learn.
“My passion is being creative in all aspects of life and making people feel great about themselves, so what better way to do this than to create hair for one of the most special days of someone’s life!
“I have been hairdressing for seven years now and have specialised in bridal hair for four of them.
“It is the area I put most of my energy into and it has definitely paid off getting the recognition I do from bridal parties.”
WHAT IS YOUR HERO BEAUTY PRODUCT?
“The hero product in my kit that I use almost every time would be the Bumble and Bumble thickening hairspray.
“I love this product because it is perfect for all hair types and can be used at different stages in the styling process.”
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR APPLYING?
“I mainly use this spray for creating texture and volume at the roots on dry hair and then drying it in further with a hairdryer before I go on to backcomb.
“This product gives me the foundation to hold the height of the backcombing and texture ALL day!
“To get the ultimate benefit out of this product you can use it on damp towel-dried hair after shampooing and then blow dry your hair upside down to plump the root even further and once dry you can spray again on the roots and dry it even further until bone dry and voila, you have a perfectly volumised style!”
