Posted by | Blog | No Comments

It’s now 1995 and I discovered that if I cut my hair the right length, then I can get a choppy messy texture!  We were right in the throws of Brit Pop in the UK, so I would occasionally sport a Fred Perry top and go a little bit mod looking!! 

Here’s some more pics of me from that time- quite tanned as well!! 

One of the pictures is with my friend, Make-up artist, Virginia Young when we were at a big fashion wedding.

MOODS COMEDY MONDAY – THE YOUNG ONES “IT’S MY ROOM!”

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

The Young Ones featured on BBC2 from 1982 to 1984, with it’s anarchic off beat humour, it helped bring alternative humour to the mainstream. 

This scene features violent punk Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson), pompous would-be anarchist Rick (Rik Mayall), depressed hippie Neil (Nigel Planer) choosing their new bedrooms in their new student house, which of course ends up with a broken window and a bed on fire!

THINGS WE LIKE – MAKE UP AND HAIR APPS: TIME FOR A MAKE OVER!!

Ever wondered what you might look like with long blonde curls? Or bright pink? Or even what that  red lippy might look like on you?! Well here you go, my selection of the best (well, funniest) hair and make-up apps out there at the moment! Underneath every app we suggest, I’ve added an image of me put through each app- just for fun of course!! 

Hair Style Make Over – This app is great for plonking a completely new haircut on a photo of yourself, as long as you have the photo straight on it works a treat, as you can see below! There’s hundred of different styles and colours on this one, and it’s all free!

So Check this one out!! With Hairstyle Makeover I gave myself a Britpop Cut and Colour makeover

Next is InstaHairColor – This one does what it says on the tin! You have to pay to get the complete range of colours, but you can get started for free with plenty of reds, greens, blues plus a range of pink highlights!

Below is me with half green and half purple hair courtesy of InstaHairColor

Next up is a great make-up app called Perfect 365. I have to say this is quite a sophisticated app, and it takes a little while to get used to navigating your way around it, but the results are pretty impressive. You can not only do makeup but add hair too. 

With my result from Perfect 365, I think I ended up looking like a cheap barmaid, but then hey, I am a guy putting make-up on so what do you want?? Hahaha..

Hair Colour’ by ModiFace – This one can change your hair colour the most realistic out all of the apps I’ve tried, you just have to make you sure you’re neat enough. Oh, also, you can try on a few sunglasses and headbands whilst you’re at it, then create your own magazine cover with your image – genius!

Next on my list is EC Stylist.  This was the first make-over app I ever discovered. Check out various hairstyles on yourself if you’re searching for a new look. They don’t have the biggest section of styles but you can have a lot of fun just playing with friends! 

And my result from EC Stylist is……..  Anna Wintour, eat your heart out! 

And finally the last app I want to tell you about is one where you can just wile away the time by painting a face. This one has the complete cute factor but its fun none the less. 

Its called Makeup Touch and this one is Makeup Touch 2

And after I had a play around, here’s my effort. 

Have fun creating guys- All these Apps are available at the Apple App Store on your smart phone, ipad, tablet or Computer.
