Review: Nicky Clarke professional flexi-stylers

(Hello! Long time no see! Mr Dollface is currently in the middle of a re-design of the site, after which the plan is to get back to some kind of semi-regular posting schedule. That’s taking slightly longer than we’d expected,…

How to Enhance Red Hair

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about my hair colour: specifically, is it real, and if not, what the hell is it? (My favourite of these questions so far: “Is that REAL hair on her head?” uttered…

Amber of Orange

Yes, I am still talking about it

This morning I got up not-so-bright and early, and headed to the supermarket, where I purchased the bottle of Head & Shoulders Citrus which I should have just bought the second this whole “orange hair” saga started.  Well, you know…

Orange Crush

It’s… still kind of orange. I’ve been washing it faithfully with Head & Shoulders, and it’s faded quite a bit, but I still have my orange temples (That’s totally going to be the name of my band, by the way: Amber…

Messy Beehivehead

Review: Neal & Wolf Harmony Intensive Care Treatment

As I mentioned last week, one of the products inside my surprise Glossybox was a full-sized tube of Neal & Wolf’s Harmony Intensive Care Treatment for hair. One of the great things about Glossybox, of course, is that it gives…

The One Where I Dye My Hair Orange

The night before we left for California, I dyed my hair orange. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re all, “But her hair already IS orange? Should I say her hair is orange? Has she not noticed?” People, I mean…

The Hair: A Horror Story

“There Is the Temptation of Women Pictures”

Since we last talked: 1. This happened: The wind, it was frightening. It still is, actually. Just to make things even more interesting, the more the wind roared and howled, the more Rubin did likewise. Imagine the wind roaring, the…

Review: Remington Spin Curl hairdryer

Greetings, Dollfaces! Today I come to kill you, mwahaha! OK, OK, I jest. It’s not a strangely-shaped weapon, it’s a hairdryer. To be specific, it’s the Remington Spin Curl hairdryer, and it’s responsible for the huge pile o’frizz you see…

Dreaming of December…

… because in December I’m going to be back here: Tenerife, Canary Islands. I’m up in the mountains at the time, which is why I look so omgfreezing. I’d also just had the flu, thus ruining most of the first…

Review: Goody Volume Boost Hair Comb

A few weeks ago, like the absolute sucker I am, I raced out and bought one of Goody’s Volume Boost Combs, which is designed to, er, boost the volume of your hair. That’s it  in the image above, looking a…

Review: Wella Lifetex Color Reflex Mask in Red

Review: Liz Earle Naturally Active Haircare

I’ve been using Liz Earle’s skincare products for a few months now, so when they contacted me to ask if I’d like to try out their new haircare range, I obviously wasn’t going to say no! Using the same principles…

Hair Products: Why are redheads always overlooked?

Well, Dollfaces, I’m pleased to report that last week’s haircut was far less traumatic than I’d anticipated and so, to celebrate, I headed to Boots to buy myself some new hair products. (Is it just me who always wants to…

Mini hair straighteners from Topshop

The launch of their new makeup line last month made the Topshop website even more dangerous to my bank balance than it was previously, and hey, look: now they’re even selling mini hair straighteners, too! Teeny-weeny straighteners are something I’ve…

Review: Babyliss Pro 30 Piece Ceramic Roller Set

  Before I start this review, I have to explain a couple of things about my hair. You see, my hair is fine. Super-fine, in fact. It’s poker straight.  It’s long. It does not hold a curl AT ALL. Ever….

Found! The Hair Scroo!

Remember the Hair Scroo? They’re the hair grips from the 90s which I was obsessed with finding a couple of years ago, because they’re basically the ONLY thing that actually holds my hair up, and which I’m able to use…

Review: The Bumpit!

Review: Sunsilk Care & Repair Shampoo

I have to be honest here: I chose this shampoo purely because it was part of a “four products for £3″ deal at Asda last week. And I’m actually really pleased I did. As I mentioned last week, my hair has…

Hair today, possibly gone tomorrow…

Say you’d had a really bad haircut. A haircut so bad, in fact, that even now, months later, you’re still growing it out, and while it may not look too bad to the naked eye, only you (and now the…

The Afterbath

Radiant Red

A few weeks ago, I started using a new hair conditioner. It’s called ‘Radiant Red’ and as the name suggests, it’s made especially for us redheads. (And very good it is too, by the way: you should totally buy it….

Review: Botanics Hair Radiant Red Conditioner

After my experiments with John Frieda’s Colour Glaze, I decided to try something a little less dramatic in my bid to give my red hair a bit of a colour boots. Botanics ‘Radiant Red’ conditioner seemed to be just what…

Review: Remington Shine Therapy Hair Straighteners

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but thanks to a bad haircut or three (or, OK, four…) this year, my hair straighteners are my BFFs right now. This has left me between a rock and hard place, though, because as…

Hairdressing Curse: broken!

So, yesterday I went to the hairdresser and had a big ol’ chunk cut off my hair. Now, I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those entries, where I end up screaming…

Bow headbands: the cure for bad hair days

Alberto Balsam Strawberries and Cream Conditioner

As recommended by one of my readers, Mari, this is the UK companion conditioner to the VO5 Strawberries and Cream Shampoo I reviewed last week and another sweet smelling, bargain priced hair product. While the smell is delicious, though, the…

Dollface Reviews: TRESemme Thermal Recovery Conditioner

I’ve been using Tresemme’s shampoos and conditioners on and off for a while now, but this was the first time I’d tried the Thermal Recovery Conditioner, so I thought it was worth a quick review… The first thing I have…

Dollface Reviews: Redken ‘All Soft’ shampoo

As always, I was skeptical about reviewing a new shampoo, because, as I’ve mentioned here before, I rarely notice much of a difference between them. I swear I have some kind of shampoo dyslexia or something. Not this time, though….

Dollface Reviews: ‘Rehab’ shampoo by Lush

Conditioner Only Washing Day 2

Well, I have to admit I wasn’t quite as impressed with Day 2 of my conditioner only hair washing experiment as I was with Day 1. By the time I went to bed last night my hair had started to…

Conditioner Only Washing Day 1 – It works!

I have to confess I was really, really sceptical about this. You see, my hair needs to be washed every day. If I don’t wash it every day? Oil slick city. I was pretty sure that conditioner-only washing just wouldn’t…

Beauty Mistakes to Avoid: Cutting your own hair

As you go through life, you start to realise that there are some things only stupid people do. Pouring bleach in their coffee. Almost choking to death on their own dinner. Wearing crocs.  To this short list, however, I would…
