How to keep your hair looking fabulous in those cold and rainy months…


A fabulous fedora

One of the easiest way to keep your hair looking flawless on these rainy winter days is to keep it safe under a stylish hat and these 70s style floppy hats are perfect for the job! Wide-brimmed enough to protect your hair and make-up whatever the weather, investing in one of these is like investing in your hair, make-up and wardrobe all at once!

Scalp protection

Just as it’s tough on your skin, the cold weather can be harsh on your scalp too causing it to dry and potentially flake. Look after your scalp with Aveda’s Invati exfoliating shampoo. Healthy scalp, healthy hair!



There is a reason that Moroccanoil’s signature Treatment has reached cult beauty status – its versatile Argan oil formula builds strength and adds shine, as well as protecting against environmental damage.


The Rainshader

Maybe not the most conventional looking umbrella, the rainshader provides full upper body coverage from the rain making it perfect for those of us who are precious about our long locks. Imagine having one of these on the morning of that important interview or before that hot date… Not so odd looking now are they?!

Intensive moisture mask

If your hair has been through a lot this winter, an intensive mask will offer instant and effective nourishment. Nicky Clarke’s rich Intensive Moisture Mask leaves hair manageable, shiny and significantly less frizz-prone.

Sarah McKenna is the founder of Vixen & Blush and The London Hair Lab. Sarah graduated as a research biochemist in 2005 and started a career within the pharmaceutical industry, before becoming a hair extensions expert. In 2010, Sarah gained insight into the hair extensions industry and could see that clients had a very poor value/quality proposition. At that time, poor-quality hair extensions were available, at prohibitively high prices. Sarah left her initial career and set out on a mission to improve the hair extensions industry in the UK, using her research and development skills.

Spending 3 years securing a high-quality and sustainable supply of human hair, Sarah then developed new products and fitting techniques to allow long-term refits of the same hair. In this way, Sarah was able to offer hair extensions services at a more affordable price to clients, while improving the quality of the service for her clients.

With Vixen & Blush starting in 2012 as a 1 chair salon in London, Sarah quickly grew the business to what it is today, a team of more than 20 hair professionals working together as London’s leading hair extensions specialists.
