Q. Which pink hair dye do you use?
A. Special Effects ‘Cupcake Pink’, heavily diluted to make it pale.
Q. How do you dilute your dye?
A. I dilute it either with conditioner or with water. To dilute with conditioner I mix maybe half a teaspoon of dye with roughly twenty of a regular hair conditioner, although it varies depending on how light a pink I want. More often than not I dilute the dye with water as it’s a lot less hassle. I’ll dissolve a tablespoon of dye in a cup of near-boiling water, then pour the water in to a sink of cooler water before rinsing my freshly bleached hair in the water.
Q. Do you bleach your hair before you dye it pink?
A. Yes, I use a box bleach on my roots every three weeks or so. I use Jerome Russell’s ‘Powder Bleach’.
Q. Which extensions do you use?
A. 200g (two packs) of human hair wefts by SHF Purple Desire in the lightest blonde (shade #613). I usually get the 22” ones and will then sew clips on and dye them using dye diluted in water.
Q. Do you have a hair care routine?
A. Not specifically. I try to use heat protection before styling and will use a deep conditioning mask like Aussie’s ‘Three Minute Miracle Intensive Conditioner’ every couple of weeks.
Q. How do you get your hair so big?
A. There’s really not much to it - just very thorough back-combing and a lot of hairspray.

Q. Do you have a skincare routine?
A. Again, I don’t stick to a strict regime or anything because my skin is pretty good to begin with but I do try to keep it moisturised and I like to exfoliate every now and then. I have quite dry skin so I use Clinique’s Moisture Surge daily and exfoliate with Clinique’s Seven Day Scrub every week or so. I’m a bit of a sucker for The Body Shop’s Body Butter’s - Shea Butter and Coconut smell amazing!
Q. Which perfume do you wear?
A. My favourite’s are Vivienne Westwood’s ‘Naughty Alice’ and Dior’s ‘Miss Dior Cherie’. Also, Boots’ Natural Collection have a Vanilla Body Spray which is really cheap and smells wonderful.

A. I’ll list online shops that I like, although please bear in mind I haven’t shopped at all of the shops I’m about to list. Other than these I mostly shop on Ebay and at ASOS. In no particular order:
