Handbag Essentials for London Fashion Week

This weekend, the HQhair team are taking to the streets of London to gather inspiration for hair and make-up looks, so that we can ensure we’ve got the coolest brands and trends to inspire all of the sassy HQ gals out there to create their own incredible looks! We’ll be at London Fashion Week, and we want to make sure we’re prepared.  We’re busy packing our bags to make sure we have the essentials to get us through a busy day of hopping from show to show at the same time as looking good. Here’s our handbag essentials!

This spray keeps hair looking clean and enhances volume and texture, refreshing hair instantly. We’ll be carrying one of these to make sure we’re looking fresh all day and to add that extra volume ready for the evenings!

This isn’t just a handbag essential for Fashion Week, but a handbag essential for every week! Our Tangle Teezers won’t be leaving our sides through fashion week so that we can make sure the windy tube stations and unpredictable British weather don’t wreak havoc with our style!

On the go styling is something we can never say no to! The Diva Freestyler Pro is a cordless battery powered hair iron that lasts for up to 40 minutes – a serious handbag essential for us! It also comes with a travel lock and pouch so you can safely throw it into your bag after use, perfect!

We can’t go anywhere without a bold and bright lipstick option in our bags! Rimmel’s The Only 1 lipstick is our go-to for a highly pigmented, moisturising, long-lasting colour. Perfect for taking out look from day to night too!

The likelihood is that it will be pretty cold in London this weekend, but that doesn’t stop the oil from shining through out faces… damn that oil! We’re adding the Pixi Quick Fix Powder to our handbag essentials to make sure we can blot out any signs of unwanted shininess and keep that airbrushed finish! Bonus – it contains a mirror!

If we’re looking for a more toned down nude lip, we reach for Bourjois’ Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Peach Club. These bad boys are super long lasting and pretty darn smudgeproof, perfect for all the coffee we’ll be drinking to get us through the long days!

When we’re feeling a little tired and our skin is feeling tight from all of those pollutants, wind and London grime, we’ll be spritzing some First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist on our faces! It’s filled with First Aid Beauty’s antioxidant booster, helping to protect our skin from environmental aggressors, and is enriched with Vitamin B5 to add intense moisture!
