L’Oreal Pro Fiber Hair Treatment
Heat styling, colouring, bleaching, even excess sun exposure, all damages your hair. Thankfully after 15 years of research, L’Oreal launched their Pro Fiber treatment to combat this problem. The Pro Fiber range has three different treatments depending on how damaged your hair is, but all work fundamentally the same way by providing nourishment and protection for damaged hair. You can do this at home by using their products, but we prefer to go to our L’Oreal flagship salon, Amour to get the full treatment with a scalp consultation and a relaxing head massage.

Japanese Style Air/ Silk Lashes
We’ve all heard of the magic of mink lashes. They promise soft fuller longer and highly natural looking lash for three full months. But have you heard about Air and Silk Lashes? In M&A Eyelash Beauty, you could get a little glimpse into what might possibly become the next beauty craze. First, let’s start with Air Lash extensions. Basically, the idea behind it is simple – light and buoyant hairs that won’t burden your natural hair thus enabling the technicians to add more extensions without it looking unnatural. Since they are lighter, the risk of them falling off with your natural hair is significantly lower.
Silk lashes are made to look more glossy with very little maintenance. You can continue on your daily activities without any worries because these lashes are downright firm. In addition, unlike mink lashes who tends to loose their curl over time, silk lashes will stay curvaceous for as long as you want them to be.
