Matchy magic

We love a nail trend and look for any excuse to switch up our mani. First off, it was matching your tips to your pout. But seeing as we’ll be wearing masks for the foreseeable future, the next big thing is to co-ordinate your mani and your mask. Yep, at the Rebecca Minkoff SS21 show, the designer’s black and white star print was copied onto filed-down, stiletto shaped nails. Want in on the matchy-matchy trend? Get creative by decorating fake Elegant Touch Totally Bare Stiletto Nails with a design that complements your fave face covering. Count. Us. In.

If you embraced the mega tie-dye trend in lockdown 1.0, then why not now include your nails? It’s the perfect look for your mani guru to create, because not only does it have all the positive springtime vibes, but it grows out a treat, ready for when you book yourself in again. Nail supremo Michelle Class designed these beauties for us.

Chop chop

You really can’t go wrong with a chic bob, and Kaia Gerber’s short new ’do only proves that. Seeing as we’ve been stuck indoors and without a hairdresser for way too long (sob), this style is ideal for waving goodbye to those dead ends (literally and metaphorically) and making your first hair appointment of the year count. And what’s not to love? It’s super-flattering, frames your face, gives off cool, French-girl vibes and will make hair-wash day a whole lot quicker. We’re feeling inspired to try something new – plus, with (hopefully) some form of socialising on the horizon, it’s just the thing for giving you a fresh look for spring. Let the compliments roll in…

We are all about looking to make-up to help us feel all the emotions here at Health & Beauty HQ. So why not use your nails as your walking moodboard and ask your technician to design an empowering motif or statement? Or feel free to copy our ‘LOVE’ mani, created by nail artist Jessica Thompson.

#WFH top knot

Whether you opt for the aforementioned bob or just a subtle trim from your beloved hairdresser, you’ll also need the perfect ’do for continuing Zoom calls or meeting friends (in a socially distant manner, of course). But that shouldn’t mean you suddenly need to present a super-groomed version of yourself. We need to come out of lockdown life slowly. So take inspo from the SS21 Pucci show, where models rocked a messy ‘#WFH’ top knot. It’s perfect for showing off your post-lockdown colour and for those days when you simply can’t be bothered! To take your top knot to the next level, accessorise with the chic Ribbon & Asher Satin Scrunchie in Black.
