Pretty Pastel Eyes

Forget about the smoky eye this summer – the next big thing is a light wash of colour dusted across your lids. The trend made its debut at Burberry, Rochas and Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer ’14 runway shows. Our resident Makeup Artist and Director of Esstudio Galleria, Jacqui Arnold, loves using Lime Crime shadows to achieve the ultimate pastel eye.

I think that this will be my summer haircut

Okay, so everybody knows that with summer comes a new hair cut, right? And after watching countless beautiful ladies walk out the doors of Esstudio Galleria with a cute, easy-to-maintain bob atop their heads, I’ve decided to take the plunge. But it’s not that simple. With a short haircut comes a whole new world of possibilities. There’s long bobs, pixie cuts, choppy bobs, wavy bobs, sleek bobs, concave bobs – it’s all pretty overwhelming.

And so after hours of scouring the web in search of the ultimate bob I came across this picture of the beautiful Dianna Agron. I am officially in love with this hair. This is it. I’ve found the one.



Summer’s here – that means parties, trips away and a sneaky summer romance (or two). Sounds fun, no? Well slow down, Sandra-Dee. Don’t you remember how the movie goes? Summer loving happened so fast and then along came Rizzo (you know – the frizzy one?) to stuff it all up. Frizzy hair can be a massive pain when all you want to do is look cute and lounge around on some tropical island sipping on a mojito. Is that really too much to ask for? Unfortunately it’s unavoidable as the humidity in the air increases by the minute, taking your hair along for the ride too. But don’t despair! We have researched the three best ways to combat frizzy hair this summer and you can check them out below:

Here at Esstudio, we love the Brasil Cacau Keratin Treatment – it’s pretty much the bomb dot com. It works by reinforcing the internal structure of your hair (improving its condition, smoothing the cuticle and eliminating frizz – AND its chemical-free). The amazing thing about Keratin Treatments is that because it’s a long-term treatment it’s a million times quicker to get ready in the morning. No more blow dryer fiascos or hair-straightener burns – yes please!

Using a hydrating hair treatment before and after a day at the beach will do wonders for dry, frizzy hair! Sebastian Professional’s Potion9 is a wearable styling treatment that helps to restore lost moisture and rejuvenate your hair. Don’t be fooled because it may seem like your typical glossy, creamy, leave in hydrating treatment, but in reality, it’s so much more than that. It’s brilliant because it’s versatile – with a flexible hold and 9 botanical extracts designed to nourish and hydrate your hair, you really couldn’t ask for more this summer.

Sebastian Professional’s Liquid Gloss is a great little product that deserves a permanent place in your beach bag. Just a couple of drops of this miracle in a bottle will tame your mane and give it a glossy finish. See ya later, static!
