Priya O'Shea's Hair

At Millimetre, we’re big fans of The Great British Bake Off, and this year is no exception. And this week there was one thing we couldn’t take our eyes off (and it’s not Micheal’s gross unusual black icing). We have a hair crush on Priya O’Shea’s beautiful glossy bob.

Priya’s a marketing consultant by day and a whizz in the kitchen by night. Although ep 5 saw the judges tear into her lemon and raspberry custard pies, she managed to save her spot on the show with a mocktail pina colada cake.

We’ve seen the bob all over the media and catwalks this year and Priya has clearly jumped on the bandwagon with her sleek, side-part bob. If you’re trying to match her dazzling shine, why not try one of our top five tips for shiny hair.

Join Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood on the Great British Bake Off on Channel 4, Tuesdays at 8pm. Or contact your local Mm salon to get a shine-enhancing treatment today.

Best Dressed Emmys 2019

Best dressed: Emmys 2019

Last Sunday night, we enjoyed watching the 71st Emmy Awards, especially all the style-inspiring red carpet looks.

Check out some of our favourite looks below…


Zendaya
The American actress and singer has been dominating the red carpets this awards season (she even somehow managed to upstage Michael B Jordan by wearing this amazing Berluti suit at the New York Fashion Week).

And she did not disappoint at the Emmys. Clad in a sheer green bodice dress with a stunning silk skirt and thigh-high slit, Zendaya once again slayed on the red carpet.


Sandra Oh
Sandra Oh, the Canadian American actress is well known for her roles as Cristina Yang on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and Eve Polastri in the BBC America spy thriller series Killing Eve.

And last night she looked like a goddam princess in a beautiful salmon pink, plunge neckline ballgown. Please can someone give her the crown she deserves?!


Natasha Lyonne
Natasha Lyonne, is an American actress, writer, producer and director well known her for her role in Orange is The New Black and Russian Doll.

At this year’s Emmys she gave us some real edge in her quirky and unique gold dress. The gold dress, the red hair, the pink lips, the chunky jewellery – just the perfect awards ceremony look.


Michelle Williams
This year, most of the winners gave us memorable speeches, from human rights to Hollywood diversity to politic topics, but one of them really touched us was from Michelle Williams.

She spoke about equal pay for women and about women’s rights all over the world. We also lovely her strapless sequin dress and sleek blonde bob.

Top trends at London Fashion Week 2019

At Millimetre we love new style inspiration so have spent the last week hunting down the top trends from London Fashion Week 2019. Here are some of our favourite seasonal trends…


Long Hair
Long hair is back in the game! Last year it was all about bobs but now it’s time to take a break from the restyle and grow your locks! Hair won’t grow? Remember regular trims will make your hair grow faster and healthier.


Autumn colours
Another trend we spotted this week was some luxurious warm reds, browns and oranges. The perfect colours to start the Fall season, we’ll be bringing the inspiration back into our salons.


’60s vibes
London Fasion Week took some inspiration from the ’60s this year! The catwalks were filled with bright colours, braids and flowers – bring on the hippy vibes!


Androgyny
Catwalks and collections are becoming more and more gender-fluid, and we loved some of the looks this year – especially the almost-no-makeup, cropped hair look and big collars.

Hair Secrets from the Experts

Welcome back to Millimetre’s Salon Secrets where you can get beauty and hair secrets from the experts – our very own hair and beauty professionals.

This week we had a chat with Kelly, one of our Area Managers. She has been working with Millimetre since 2012, with 13 years of hairdressing experience…

“When you apply a treatment like a hair mask at home, don’t skip the conditioner too. Most people think a mask is enough but these two products can actually work together for super smooth hair.”

“Shampoo and condition your hair as usual, combing through any knots while you’re applying conditioner. Next, towel dry your hair and apply your hair mask. You’ll avoid wasting product while combing your hair and you’ll only use what you need.

Some more great money-saving hair secrets from the experts!

Secret Beauty Tips

Welcome to Millimetre’s Salon Secrets where you can get hair and beauty secrets from the experts – our very own hair and beauty professionals.

This week we have sat down with Sarah, who has been with Millimetre since early 2019 and has shared her top three beauty secret tips. Sarah has and been working in the beauty industry for 10 years beauty salons and spas, including working a year in Dubai…

“Before applying any makeup, apply two layers of moisturiser. The first works into your skin, whilst the second provides a base for your foundation. If your skin is hydrated, the makeup will stay all day!”

“Another little secret for the perfect lashes is to use castor oil on your brow and eyelashes. This natural, conditioning oil will make the hairs grow thicker, faster.”

“Keep your eye cream in the fridge – using a colder cream will help to deflate puffy areas by cooling the skin, constricting blood vessels and reducing swelling.”

If you’d like to hear more beauty secrets from the expert – our Beauty Manager Sarah – you can book an appointment with her at our Palmers Green salon. And you can call us on 020 3612 1002 or get more info on the salon here.
