So that’s all the packets filmed for my new beauty show. Not sure why they call them packets but that is what they are called in T.V. land and mine consist of me visiting salons experiencing beauty treatments and getting the inside story from the professionals. Not your usual manicure or pedicure mind you but more unusual treatments. I have the rest of the show still left to film but I am so excited for it to be on the telly box soon.
Friday I visited a brand new clinic in Jesmond called 1 Benton Tce. Think of it as a one stop shop for all things beauty, from hair styling to lasers to botox to fillers. Here I experienced the ”iron man facial” which is hugely popular with celebrities and consists of wearing a light therapy mask which has many benefits, however I really don’t want to say too much as I want you to tune in to find out more but it was a canny impressive piece of kit!
Tuesday I visited Newcastle Hair and Beauty in central Newcastle for a Hydra facial which again is a celebrity favorite. It is a 7 step medical facial but again I really don’t want to say too much, however what I will say is that results are instant and my skin has never ever felt so clean and fresh…eeekkk right that’s too much, you will just have to tune in and find out about all of these amazing treatments.
Ill be sure to let you all know when Confessions of a Beauty Addict will air on Made in Tyne and Wear!
Ok, so when I was told I could have my own show on Made in Tyne and Wear called ”Confessions of a Beauty Addict”, I just knew that I had to visit a hair extension expert. So many ladies ask on Tried and Tested about hair extensions, ”what method is best?”, ”are they hard to maintain?”, ”where is best to go?”, ”what hair is best?” etc so I really wanted to cover this treatment on the show. I researched and found a salon that kept popping up as a firm favorite on my Group called Dreamgirlz Hair Extension Boutique in Jesmond.
I contacted the owner Vanessa and we arranged to meet. I instantly loved her, she was enthusiastic, full of knowledge and bubbly, great for the show!. Her salon is out of this world and every station has its own flat screen TV which is impressive, nearly as impressive as the huge crystal chandelier which is the centerpiece and the classy decor. Vanessa was keen to give me a hair make over for the show and who was I to argue he he. I wanted big hair, big, long, bad ass hair and Vanessa didn’t disappoint as you can see from the pictures. After a consultation Vanessa chose a weft for me as I wanted lots of volume and length and she thought this method was best. I was pleased as this was a method I had never tried and I love to try out NEW, on trend treatments and this is very much the method of choice at present. All the girls in the salon have this method of hair themselves. This is the kindest method to your natural hair. The weft is applied with tiny micro rings and sewn in so no braids needed. The hair is distributed evenly so no tension to the root of the natural hair either. This salon uses hair of the best quality and if looked after correctly can last 12 months + so is a long term investment. I will be going for regular maintenance every 8 to 10 weeks to have the weft removed and naturally shredded hair brushed away and the weft fitted again. My aim of the extensions is to give my own natural hair a rest and let it grow, hopefully having the length I desire in a year. I can, if I wanted dye this hair, cut this hair and treat it exactly like natural hair but you must make sure you use the correct products for hair extensions available also from the salon.
Vanessa was great on camera and very informative. I am absolutely over the moon with my new hair. She achieved exactly what I wanted and it is so comfortable, you literally don’t know its in. Vanessa does some amazing work with ladies who suffer from alopecia and other hair loss conditions. She says this is her most rewarding work and I can understand why. Hair is everything to a woman. You can step out with a full face of amazing makeup and dressed out of this world but if you have bad hair everyone will notice. Thanks so much girls, you have made Mrs T&T a very happy lady!
