Hi Everyone.

I want to announce that today on the Windle and Moodie Salon Blog we’re starting a 3 day, 3 part ‘How To” series from my dear friend Earl Simms, who styled Sienna Miller’s hair though out the Cannes 2015 Film Festival. Earl created 6 looks in total on Sienna and over the next 3 days we’ll be giving you 2 of the looks per day and which Windle And Moodie products Earl used to create each of the looks.

I’m super excited to be able to give you the exclusive from Earl, because Sienna’s looks became the talk of the whole festival as she shone and shone through the whole of the 2 weeks there. Here at Moodie HQ we’re calling it the Siennaissance.

To read the How To’s go to WindleandMoodie.com

Happy Monday People, and for the last Comedy Monday of May, I’m giving you Julie Walters as Dotty again.

For Dotty’s Slot, she only played this character 3 times in total before she stepped down for Patricia Routlidge to take over as a re-named similar character Kitty……

BTW, later today ( 4pm to be precise)  there’s going to be a post going live as a Bank Holiday Comedy Monday Special. So be sure to pop back for more fun and laughter ( starring “Me” no less)

MOODS COMEDY MONDAY – GEORDIE GEORGIE BY CATHERINE TATE.

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

hqdefault

Catherine Tate is one my favourite British comediennes/actresses. In her 3rd and final series of the Catherine Tate Show, she introduced a new character called Geordie Georgie.

Georgie is a passive aggressive Northern English office worker who is always doing some ridiculous fund raiser and trying to get her work colleague Martin to sponsor her.

A fun bit of comedy for anyone who knows somebody who’s passive aggressive. I think that’s everyone LOL

MY STORY SO FAR (and the HAIRCUTS)- SHAVED HEAD- MID 90’S

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

 

34 8 1 Mushrooms with Carter-

Up until the mid 90’s I’d always had hair of some description or shape. However in about 94/95 I decided to go for the plunge and shave all my hair off.

I’ve always had a receding hairline. Like a kind of M shape hairline. My father has it, my sister has it ( a little) and so does my nephew.

I was always bothered that I couldn’t have some haircuts because of this ( you know the theory of, “we always want what we don’t have”) A shaved head being one of them, but my friends persuaded me that it would be fine. And you know what, it was. My hairline just made my head seem a little bigger, but heh, there’s worse things that could happen.

And so here are a selection of some of my favourite pics of me with a shaved head- Hairline and all.

MOODS COMEDY MONDAY – FRENCH AND SAUNDERS ‘THE FELLINI MOVIE’

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French

As British Comedy duo FRENCH AND SAUNDERS  became more and more well known around the World as well as in Britain back in the 90’s, their parodies of films were becoming almost as well known as themselves, so much so that the parodies began to lead each show. . In 1996 they released their 5th series of French And Saunders on BBC1 and covered Batman, Brave Heart as well as Pulp Fiction, but one that stood out for me was the one I’m showing today – THE FELLINI MOVIE

They called it Franco E Sandro, which wasn’t an actual Fellini film, but their names, sort of in Italian ( but not really…….hahaha)

So here it is in 3 parts. Enjoy, have fun and hope you love it as much as I do.

 

MODELS N’ STUFF SPECIAL – LINDA EVANGELISTA 50TH BIRTHDAY!!!!

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!!

So Linda Evangelista is 50 years old today. Born in Canada in 1965 in Ontario near Niagara Falls, Linda began modelling in her early teens. Entering a Miss Teen Niagara contest she was spotted by a talent scout from the Elite Model Agency.  Taking a move to Japan she was asked to pose nude for a photographer and promptley called the Canadian Embassy to fly her out of there and went back to school.  After graduating, her family persuaded her to give modelling another try and in 1984 she finally moved to New York City.  Only getting mediocre work, in 1988 she met photographer Peter Lindbergh who advised her to cut her hair shorter into a light brown bob.  Consequently 16 of her booked shows cancelled her as they didn’t quite get her new look. Eventually everyone started talking about the new transformation and with that came work. Soon Linda had every Vogue cover around the world.  She has since graced the covers of 700 magazines and holds the record for multiple appearances on the cover of Vogue Italia all of which were photographed by Steven Meisel.

Linda became known for being the chameleon of the supermodels in the 80’s , forever changing her hairstyle and colour. Hairstylist Garren was responsible for most of her amazing hair changes

After briefly retiring from the catwalk in 1998, Linda returned to modelling in 2001. She’s continued to work well into her forties. In 2012 she once again appeared on the cover of the Italian edition of Vogue. I’ve gathered some iconic pictures of Linda to celebrate her 50th Birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!

Q&A WITH TOP MODEL ANAIS MALI AND AND #BTS FILM WITH HER CURLS

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

tumblr_n0apuqFO0g1ryq2zfo1_500

A couple of weeks ago I was in LA working with the divine Anais Mali. I’ve worked with this Tchad- Polish model, who was born in Toulon,  France 🇫🇷, a few times, and when we finished the shoot, we went onto the roof of the building and had some fun filming Anais throwing her hair around in Slo-Mo video. 

Meanwhile Anais recently answered a Q&A for me so here it is together with the little video we made.. This entrepreneurial young woman will blow your mind with all the things she’s working on. She’s just played a part in a film, to be released next year I believe, she’s currently also writing a script for her own film that she will star in, and just to keep herself super busy, she’s working on her own collection of amazing body suits who she’s been working on with former Blumarine designer and photographer Urivaldo Lopes.

Once Anais releases her first designs of her body suits I will be featuring them on here, but meanwhile have a read of her Q&A where she shares some of her life with us.
