Hot Right Now : January

Right now, the HQhair gals are getting stuck back into work life after a slightly overindulgent Christmas. Needless to say, we’re feeling pretty damn good this month. Our January campaign ‘You’re In Charge‘ has got us feeling seriously motivated and ready to take on the world, and these are the books, music, products and films keeping our spirits high!


All of the girls at HQ headquarters are plugged in and listening to Solange’sA Seat at the Table‘. The 21 track album has given us the perfect background music for getting back into work mode.


There is one book, and one book only that we can talk about right now, and that is Sophia Amoruso’s Nasty Galaxy. The dreamy linen covered coffee table hardback is filled with interviews with #GIRLBOSSES, candid snaps of Sophia’s home, and quotes and advice to boot! A definite must for 2017.

We’re desperate to go and see multi Golden Globe winning ‘La La Land‘, because who doesn’t love the idea of a romantic comedy musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling?! And if you didn’t already see Ryan Goslings speech at the Golden Globes, go and watch it right now, you will fall even more in love with him. That’s literally an order.

Beauty Products

We’re constantly getting new brands and products on HQhair, but the two that we’ve been seriously loving this month come from Illamasqua and Bliss

New Year, New… lipstick! The Illamasqua Anti-Matter Lipstick is top of our list this January. The semi-matte, long-wearing, non-drying formula will add intense colour to your lips, whilst staying smooth, creamy and conditioning. The shades we’re swooning over are purple shade ‘Btch‘, deep blue/purple ‘Energy‘, deep plum red ‘Spectra‘ and 90’s nude ‘Mars‘.

Our must have handbag essential this month is bliss’ Triple Oxygen Radiance Restoring Face Mist. With a spritz of the lightweight refreshing mist, your skin will feel moisturised, hydrated, smoother and plumper!


There’s nothing like a good ol’ Instagram stalk, and when you come across those accounts that are literally heavenly, life is somehow slightly better. This month, we’re obsessing over Heather (@sugarpea_). Her dreamy sky blue locks, plant filled home and winged liner always on fleek have kept our scrolling eyes satisfied throughout January.


What are you obsessing over this January? Let us know over on Twitter and Instagram!
