Last week I attended the #BigHairDo event at the Trevor Sorbie salon in Covent Garden. It was an evening of every girls dream- hair, makeup, eyebrow threading, chocolate, champagne and more!

Upon arrival, I was swiftly handed a glass of fizz and whisked over to the Urban Decay makeup station. A makeup artist used the newly launched UB basics palette to create a natural smoky eye on me. I had a few nibbles of Hotel Chocolat chocolate, crisps and little sushi bites before lining up for the most coveted station of the evening- the braid bar.

The braid choices were overwhelming, styles were sophisticated and catwalk ready. I picked an up do 'S' braid (for lack of a better way to describe it), starting at the top of my head and 'snaking' it's way down. Incredibly, it only took the stylist 15 minutes, and the results were flawless.


Strutting around with my makeup and new braid in, I explored the Cloud Nine products, the Malika brow threading area, the colour consultation station and had my photo taken. I chatted to a few other girls from a variety of media publications who were equally as chuffed with their new do's.


Leaving with a goodie bag full of products and salon/brand discounts, I couldn't help but feel like I had to go out. I was too tired to hit the clubs, but I definitely held my head high as I walked home feeling glam!
