Happy Christmas Eve! We hope you’re having a great one wherever you are.

During the holidays we can all be guilty of eating/drinking/partying a bit too much. And all the cold weather, socialising and indulgence can take its toll on our hair and skin.

Here are our top hair and beauty tips for the festive season to keep you looking your best all the way into the new year…

Beauty is only skin deep
The first thing that the cold weather, lack of sleep and a few too many glasses of wine can attack is our skin. Make sure to exfoliate your lips and to keep your skin moisturised during the colder months.


The Hydra Floral collection from Decléor is one of our go-to products to keep skin moist and hydrated during the day.

Remember that you can always get a free face map at Millimetre Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green to find out more about your skin needs.

Put your best foot forward
Cosy socks and winter boots are perfect for the chilly weather but we sometimes neglect our toenails until we have to pop on our party shoes.

Get a SPA Pedicure at any of our Millimetre Beauty Salons to finish your Christmas party look. Book now at our Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green salons – and you can choose from normal or gel polish too.

Keep those locks glossy
Make sure you keep your hair shiny with a replenishing and nourishing hair mask.T

Apply a hair mask to freshly washed and towel-dried hair twice a week during extreme cold weather. Massage the mask to spread it evenly on the length of your hair all the way to the tips but remember, never on the roots. Rinse and style as desired!

The Pureology Hydrate mask is perfect for providing locks with the right amount of hydration, without weighing it down.


All the products mentioned above are available at selected Millimetre salons – contact your local salon now to check availability.

Iconic Vegas Divas

The festive party season is in full swing and we are enjoying getting dolled up and giving our clients beautiful makeovers.

So this week we’ve decided to get some bling inspiration from the iconic Las Vegas Divas – the queens of magic, music, glitz and glam…

Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is one of the most iconic divas in the world and her Vegas show was just as iconic as her.

Her hair and makeup are always on point and we can’t get enough of her beautiful gowns.

Isn’t Cher the most legendary human being?!

Her last Vegas show is filled with incredible costumes and flawless hair and makeup. Also – look at her skin! She’s 72 years old and still looks like a supermodel!

Britney Spears
If you grew up in the ’90s or early ’00s, you’ll know that Britney Spears is the queen of pop and a living legend.

She has recently announced a new Vegas residence, starting from February 2019. We can’t wait to see all her amazing looks but for now here are some of our favourite Britney moments…
