L’Oreal Paris Summer Styling Event


A couple of weeks ago I popped down to London to go to the L’Oreal Paris Summer Styling Event, I was so excited when my invite popped up in my inbox – it’s not every day you get invited to go see the latest products of a top haircare supplier! The day arrived and I hopped on the train straight from work and found myself in a little park just off Oxford Street, it was chucking it down, I had no coat and my shoe had just broken. Glam, eh? I’d arrived far too early for the event so was just sat on a bench trying to hide from the rain and trying to decide what the big building to my right was, the men with machine guns and the giant golden eagle on the roof led me to believe it was the American Embassy? I phoned my nan, I always do this before events as I often go alone and I need someone to tell me to be brave enough to go inside, and we discussed my situation and I tried to fix my shoe – it didn’t work.

Anyway enough of that, the venue for the event was swish it was in one of those fancy town house type set-ups and the hairdressing room had these amazing gilt mirrors. I had my hair done by a lovely lady called Tina (i think) and we went for big bouncy curls that she created with a wide curling tong, as I was the first person to arrive I was chatting to all the stylists and they all loved my hair colour (so proud!), they were encouraging me to move to London so I don’t have to commute to events after work all the time and I also educated them about the usefulness of Twitter in the blogging world! My stylist used some of the new products in my hair and finished it off with a mist of the new illuminating Elnette hairspray that has light micro-reflectors in it. I forgot to take a picture of my finished ‘do but I will have a go at recreating it at some point.

I then went and had a nosy at the new products and had a chat with some other bloggers and YouTubers which was lovely, I really love meeting new people at events.

There are a few new products being launched, the new Elnette hairspray, some Elvive 60 Second Saviours (deep conditioning treatments), Elvive Extraordinary Hair Oils, Paraben-free Serums and a whole range of Matt & Messy texturising products.

Thanks to L’Oreal for inviting me! I had a lovely time and I can’t wait to get using all these new products. I will be doing full reviews of each of them as I use them so I can let you know of any must-haves.

Are you a fan of L’Oreal products?

Have you tried any of these new products yet?
