Aussie Colour Mate party

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the Aussie Colour Mate party, and was literally counting down the weeks, days and minutes til it kicked off. Wondering what the heck a Colour Mate party is? Well, all of my fellow Aussie angels have been split into hair tribes and as someone who frequently abuses their hair with all sorts of dyes and colourants, the Colour Mate tribe seemed like a natural fit for me. The guys at Aussie have arranged parties for all the tribes to meet up and learn how to look after our hair. We were asked to dress up as our hair colour idol, I had so many! I was tempted to go as Leigh Lezark from The Misshapes, Rihanna and Katy Perry. I decided (on the day) that Katy would be the most fun to dress up as, even if she cheats and wears wigs rather than dying her hair blue and purple.

We had oodles of coloured cocktails to carry on the colour theme and super stylists Amber and Zara showed us how to make the most of our locks without heat styling. We even had the most amazing Lady Gaga and Beyonce impersonators ever! We also had a little mini hair makeovers which are always fab. I had a plait which went over one shoulder and some loose curls. It was lovely to catch up with fellow bloggers Tor from Fab Frocks, Kristabel from I Want You To Know, Maria from Mediacation, Christina from A Sense Sublime and Lucy from Snippets of Shiny Thoughts.
