Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life? The music, the stage, the exquisite combination of femininity and strength; all pulled together with pretty French names, blush pinks and feathery layers of tulle. I first watched Swan Lake on Easter Sunday when I was five or six. High on […]

Get the Look – French Braids

Summer is upon us and that means: fields, beaches and hair issues. Whilst I love the idea of beachy waves, we all know that the heat soon takes over and you end up wrapping your,  promptly frizzy do up into a bun, wishing you’d done it in the first place. Let’s be honest, holiday hair […]

Get the Look – SS16 Festival-Ready Hair Accessories

The flower crown is officially dead. Let’s be honest, it’s been done to death. The only way to get away with it now, is with natural flowers and single buds placed insouciantly just so. With the start of Coachella last weekend, (which is back again this weekend for round 2,) festival season is officially upon us. […]

12 Reasons why we love Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell needs little introduction and you probably already have an opinion about her. Whether that’s a phone-throwing loony, the Super of all Supers, Queen of the Catwalk, Bad biatch repping London or just an amazing woman who looks even better at 45. Whatever your opinion, her greatness is undeniable. She’s a legend: for fashion […]

Get the Look – The Pun

Blush Loves… #Fringespo (Bangs are Back for Good, or at least until mine grow out!)

Sitting at home this Christmas, I found myself flicking through old Vogue magazines in the TV’s absence. Whilst I adore print and promised myself I’d never be lured in by the bright backlights of a tablet; every month I watch myself open the rather undesirable, but always enticing grey mail bag my monthly Vogue comes […]

Look of the Day – Rihanna’s Blue Bun

In a recent Daily Mail online binge (I’m the worst type of person I know) in which I was doing some detective work on Rihanna and Travis Scott (also very sad- yep I know), I thought I spotted what looked like a blue bun poking out of the back of her baseball cap. I’ve wanted […]

#BlushBoard – Bob Styling Inspiration

So you’ve been rocking your bob for some time now; and you’ve probably had to make the choice whether you will trim and continue – or face the awkward midi length as it grows. Either way styling a bob, (or lob) can be tricky; it looks great when it’s just been cut, but as the […]

Trending: Curly bobs

Maybe it’s because it’s that dodgy time of year when it’s not quite cold yet, but it’s definitely windy and rainy enough to undo the most resistant of blow-dries, but everyone from the A-list at New York Fashion Week, to the office girls still having to de-robe on the tube, seems to be working the […]

The Top 8 AW15 Beauty Trends

There’s nothing like a beauty roundup, to get you ready for the season ahead. Unlike seasons before, Autumn/Winter ’15 was neither minimal nor extreme, but somewhere safely in between. As always kohl liner featured heavily, as did fashion’s penchant for purity – with perfectly prepped faces and groomed and full brows, taking centre stage once […]

Get the Look – The High Pony – inspired by Prada AW15

Weddings, festivals, raves and beach days, summer calls for a host of hairstyles, but there’s one that’s seen a resurgence this season- the humble high pony. A schoolgirl favourite, the high ponytail is the perfect low maintenance look. For day or night, nothing is more nonchalant. So versatile is the easy up-do that Lily James […]

Blush Asks…Paulina Stepowska

Fashion Bloggers have long been a phenomenon- but I tend to find their style a bit samey. There is one blogger whose style I absolutely adore; edgy and laid-back, Paulina Stepowska manages to toe the line between tomboy and throwback like no other; and never seems like she’s trying too hard. For her bob alone […]

Blush Loves…Bangs

Researching for an upcoming shoot, I found myself repeatedly pinning pictures of brunette girls with blunt bobs and fringes. I’ve always been a fan of the fringe- mainly because I can’t have one. I did try to cut one when I was about six, but an afro fringe doesn’t really work, at all. There are […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there. This year was all about the bronze eye, teenage kohl and layering up on lashes. On the streets seemingly every star was spotted in their monogrammed Burberry blanket […]

Get the Look – Slicked-back Hair at Balmain

It’s Friday and you’ve got approximately twenty minutes to transform from exhausted desktop affixee, to decent looking member of society. Being eyed up in a bar when you have the morning’s make-up smeared somewhere along your temples, is never a nice feeling, so we’ve taken inspiration from the SS15 show of the new Tom Ford, […]

Get the Look – Retro Modern

Perhaps I’m being inspired by my new sixties bob, or the AW14 shows of Paris, Milan and London have sub-consciously infiltrated my brain, but either way, I’m feeling very retro. And it seems its not just me. The High-St is playing host to more polo necks than I’ve ever seen; and what better to pair […]

Look of the day- Kate Moss & Lindsey Wixson

It’s been a while, and for that I am sorry. The SAG awards proved unfruitful in the style stakes so the Blush’s first 2013 post has been saved by a couple of Supers.   One- an icon, a Brit, a veteran; the other- an all-American sweetheart with a killer pout and trademark gap.    Notorious […]
