Every year, a few months before my birthday, I start noticing new features on my face – the lines under my eyes that didn’t used to be there, uneven skin tone on my forehead (how did that happen?), pores looking slightly enlarged.

I’ve been fascinated with how French women do their makeup even before I touched down in the City of Lights for the first time this spring.

Which is why I was delighted to know that the brand had opened it’s first ever store in Singapore at Tangs VivoCity.

The secret to the perfect blow dry lies in using the right brush and hair dryer. While some might debate the importance of one over the other, I believe they are both equally important. A dryer without ionic technology and a powerful motor can completely undo all the benefits of a good brush and vice versa. Today I want to focus on the brush. I’ve recently been using the Tangle Teezer Blow Styling Round Tool, and it has truly transformed my hair drying routine.
