Extensions by Jen Atkin

Extensions

I have been wearing hair extensions for the last 10 years – I love achieving big, bouncy and luscious hair, who doesn’t?! To me, it’s the perfect accessory to any outfit.

The key to good hair extensions is not being able to tell you have them at all, you want people to go “wow” for all the right reasons!

I know not everyone can afford to maintain extensions, as good hair can cost anywhere between $1500 to $3000 every three months! So I have found an alternative solution for people want to achieve the look on a budget, or as a once-off for that special occasion.

Jen Atkin has styled hair for some of the most glamorous and trendsetting stars in the world: Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Emma Stone, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, Katy Perry, Christina Hendricks – the list goes on!

Jen’s new line of clip-in hair extensions are seriously AMAZING! Firstly, the array of colours available are really, really natural and bled perfectly into my hair. Secondly, they are made from high quality remy hair so can be styled just like your own hair, and finally – they have the backing of an industry professional, so you know you’re in safe hands.

Life’s too short for bad hair, so shop the amazing range of Jen Atkin Extensions now at Beauty Works Online – they ship worldwide.

Summer Skin Year-Round

Summer skin in Winter

I love the way I feel when I’m bronzed from head to toe, I mean, who doesn’t?! What I don’t like is sitting in the sun all day, baking, knowing I’m damaging my skin.

Luckily, I have a few summer-skin essentials I rely on to get that beautiful bronzed look, 365 days a year.

No matter what the season, I know I can achieve a perfectly natural looking glow with the Model Co ‘Tan Airbrush in a Can’. It’ll make you look as though you’ve been holidaying in Bora Bora all summer!

I love how easy it is to apply and it blends in perfectly with my natural colour.

One of my other secrets for beautifully bronzed skin is the Tom Ford ‘Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil’. One word – GLOW!

I literally can’t live without this product, its just so sexy! When applied, you instantly radiate with that healthy summer glow we all love. You are guaranteed to receive a few compliments with this one!

Find it online or instore at David Jones.

Hair Saviours

Maintaining perfect hair can be difficult enough, but it’s even harder when you’re on vacation. After months of dealing with everyday stresses, you deserve a break.

That’s why it’s so important to have a small treasure trove of tools and products that’ll make life just that little bit easier. If you’re packing super light, these are my recommendations:

Nashi Argan Shampoo and Conditioner 

An absolute godsend…

The amazing range of eco-friendly products not only smell AMAZING, but include ingredients to nourish even the most damaged hair – like linseed and argan oil.

I used their purple shampoo and conditioner last year for three months while travelling (when my hair was platinum blonde). It kept my colour looking fresh and my hair feeling silky smooth.

Forget dragging around a suitcase of products and just keep it simple on your next vacay – I highly recommend this amazing range.

You can find it on Amazon.

CITRA&CO Hair Brush Straightener

I’m not kidding when I say every girl needs one of these in their life. It makes getting ready so much easier and saves you bringing two tools on your journey.

It’s super quick, easy to use and beats sitting under a blow-dryer for an hour.

I don’t know any girl who wouldn’t want to have perfect hair in just under five minutes! This product is a beauty must. You simply ‘brush’ your hair and at the same time, get beautiful, glossy and straight hair. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time at the beach club; win-win!

Find it online at CITRA&CO.

The Power Of Scent…

SCENT

In just one spritz, Chanel N°5 EAU PREMIÈRE instantly takes me to my happy place.

In Summer, this is my one and only scent. I absolutely love it! It’s like the LBD (little black dress) of my wardrobe!

PREMIÈRE is the modern take, and younger sister, of the timeless and classic Chanel N°5.

No matter what I’m wearing, I feel like a little spritz of this fragrance is what completes my outfit.

Scent is a very personal thing, so choosing the right one for you is so important. It can reveal a hint of your personality to passers by and has the ability to create such a powerful statement as you enter the room. It’s amazing how something as simple as a scent can reveal so much.

Find it online or in-store at Sephora.

Perfect Your Canvas

Beautiful makeup always starts with flawless skin. That’s why choosing the right skin care is such a crucial step in achieving a picture-perfect end result.

I have to say, honestly, Aspect Dr products are easily one of the most amazing skin care ranges I’ve ever used! These products have literally changed my complexion – for the better. I’ve been using Aspect Dr for almost one year and I’m officially in love!

The Aspect Dr Starter Kit is a travel must-have – the products are super cute and mini.

The starter kit is also the perfect way to trial some of the best products in the range – it includes a deep cleanser, two serums and moisturiser.

This range really is beautiful – it’s my insurance to smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.

Find it here.
