Don’t brush….Glide! And eliminate the stress we put our tresses through on a daily basis when brushing.
The AirMotion is a revolutionary new British designed hairbrush, created to reduce the daily wear and tear on our hair. Using patent pending, built-in AirShock™ absorption technology the AirMotion provides an unsurpassed, contour sensitive and stress free hair detangling experience.
The semi-flexible bristles are 3 different lengths, which allows them to glide through dry or wet hair effortlessly for ultimate penetration.

AirMotion will not snap the hair nor will it damage the scalp as it is designed to glide along the contours of the head.

Frizzy! Curly! Unruly! Fly Away! Sound like words you would associate with your hair?
You’re not alone! These are some of the most common words that ladies (and some gents) use to describe their tresses, which is why hair straighteners play a huge role in a lot of people’s daily beauty routine. They help to tame and shape unmanageable locks to ensure a sleek style with minimal effort to create a more polished finish. They can however be extremely damaging due to the way they work with clamping the hair between the hot iron plates in order to achieve the desired straight effect.
So what if we told you there was an even simpler and less damaging way to straighten your hair - one that requires no more effort than brushing it through?
Enter the DAFNI Ceramic Hair Straightening Brush - the 'revolutionary' heated hairbrush!
Unlike straighteners, you do not have to clamp your hair in order to see results, you simply brush your locks through and the heated ceramic plate under the teeth of the brush gets to work on straightening and smoothing the hair in just a few minutes.
There is no need to section, clip or pin your hair, you can simply kill two birds with one stone by straightening your hair while you are brushing it – genius!
DAFNI STYLING TIPS
- Spritz damp hair with a heat-protect spray.
- Blow-dry and ensure the hair is completely dry before using the DAFINI brush - or any heat-styling tool.
- Divide hair into four sections if you wish – for a more thorough straighten, although it isn’t vital to do this as you will still see results by simply brushing your hair as you normally would.
- Finish with a shine-enhancing or volumising hairspray.
- And Voilà – go strut your beautiful stuff!

We all get into a routine of applying our make up in a certain way. We pick brands and products that we are comfortable with and apply them in a way that works for us. However, you may just be committing major make up errors without even realising it. Here are five of the most common make up mistakes, so if you’re guilty of any you can rectify them sharpish…
- Dirty brushes: As well as affecting the way in which your make-up looks, dirty brushes harbour bacteria, which love to live in warm, cosy environments. Once spread over your face spots and pimples are likely to breakout – not what you want! To avoid this, you should deep clean your brushes once a week and if used everyday it would also be advisable to spray them with a bacterial spray after every use. This will ensure that your make-up looks flawless every time!
- Matching Foundation on the back of your hand: We all do it! However this is actually the worst place to test your foundation colour as the skin on your hand can be up to 3 shades darker than that in your face. The neck isn’t ideal either as this lives in a shadow. The best place to test your foundation is in fact your chest area as it’s the first place the eye will see so its most obvious if its an poor match.
- Covering your face with bronzer: Many woman cover their whole face with bronzer as a way to give them a ‘golden glow’ this however ends up making you look like you have been tangoed. In stead, chose a shade that’s a few tones darker than your base colour and lightly dust over the areas in which the sun would naturally hit, so your cheeks, nose a forehead. This will result in a natural, sun-kissed looks rather than sun-drenched.
- Wearing waterproof mascara too often: Waterproof mascara is designed to help avoid smudging when in wet or moist environments not for everyday use. They can be incredibly drying and hard to remove, so if used everyday it could end up damaging your lashes.
- Not replenishing you make-up supply often enough: All cosmetics have a shelf life ranging from 6 months (for mascara’s) to 18 months (for powder foundations) and this should be adhered too to avoid infections of the skin and eyes. So if you’ve got a ‘special occasion’ eyeshadow palate hiding in the bottom of your make-up bag – throw it out!

Open your eyes to good brows…
However you like your eyebrows, straight & bold or arched & soft they are one of our most noticeable facial features and arguably the most important as they frame the eyes which instantly opens up the face. If you don’t like what natured blessed you with (or didn’t in many cases) then you can enhance their shape and appearance with a little help from a number of cosmetic products such as pencil and brow gel to more permanent procedures like tattooing. This can seem a little extreme though even if it does eliminate the rigmarole of having to apply your brows every day.
So what if we told you there was an alternative…There is! And it is called Microblading or Epibrow, which is an innovative new method of depositing pigments into the upper layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, using a very fine blade. This blade impacts colour closer to the surface in crisp, fine lines creating a natural looking 3D hairstrokes offering the perfect solution for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows.
The treatment is an extremely meticulous process that takes approximately 2 hours and will include a consultation to discuss the recommended shape and colour suitable for your face. Once completed, your new brows should last for 18 months (sometimes longer) but it is recommended to have a top up 4-6 weeks after the initial application followed by a yearly top up to maintain colour and shape.
If this still seems a bit too permanent for could opt for the celebrities favourite, Billion Dollar Brows, which provide you with a fantastic, natural looking finish. New brows are designed to frame the unique symmetry of your face shape. The treatment also includes a conditioning treatment that over time, can help restore eyebrows that are thin, sparse or over plucked. Available in 5 different shades of tint Billion Dollar Brows caters for all skin tones and hair colors.
Whatever your choice of eyebrow treatment, remember good brows can totally transform your face! Don’t neglect your face framer – be picture perfect always.
