Gorgeous glamour and festive style
Christmas time is all about adding an extra bit of glamour to your style, whether it’s a stylish party dress or festive accessories. To make sure every day has an extra burst of sparkle this season, opt for high shine hair.
Tracey Littlewood, Salon Manager, Regis Salon on the first floor in Fenwick Windsor provides some hints and tips on how to achieve ultimate shine for the party season: “Winter weather can often leave hair feeling dull and lacklustre, but with Christmas and New Year approaching it is essential to keep your locks looking healthy to really make an entrance at every party.”
“Maximise the shine potential of your hair with an intense moisturising shampoo and conditioner followed by a leave-in conditioner to combat the winter chill. My secret tip for added shine is to rinse your hair with cold water after every wash to make the hair cuticles lie flat, which will help to reflect the light.”
“For an extra shine boost, try the brand new ‘colour gloss’ service at Regis Salons. Perfect for any hair type, whether it is coloured or not, the colour gloss service creates the most incredible shine through superior hair protection and brings your colour to life.”
“Work with your stylist to choose the best colour gloss shade for you, from beautiful natural hues to vibrant fashion-forward colours. Results last for between 3-4 weeks taking you right through the long stretch of parties.”
If you do have coloured hair, the colour gloss service can be a good alternative to a full head of colour to refresh your existing colour. Helping guests to prepare for the party season, the Regis Salon in Fenwick Windsor is offering a colour gloss and blowdry package for just £35.
Regis Salon stylists are experts in providing the latest haircuts and colour, all tailored to fit your life, style and personality.

Fragrances to enchant
There’s lots of excitement at Camp Hopson of Newbury in the build-up to Christmas and one reason is the launch of two new fragances there by Rachel Lowe MBE, creator of fashion brand ‘She Who Dares’.
Her Eminence and Dalliance fragrances are a perfect choice for stylish, intelligent and determined women.
Eminence has a fresh floral scent, opening with top notes of bergamot and pink peppercorn, with a bouquet with rose, peony, forget me not and lily of the valley at its heart, plus a base of sandalwood, soft musk and sensuous patchouli. Dalliance has a flirtatious mix of fruity and floral layers, with tropical white flower notes of jasmine, tuberose and magnolia entwined with ripe pears on a sensual musky base. From £45 for 50ml.
Visitors to the Camp Hopson cosmetics department will also find a new brand, Harley Street Skin Care. It’s been created by Dr Aamer Khan, a UK expert in cosmetic and non-surgical procedures, and Lesley Reynolds, a skincare professional beauty expert and author. Harley Street Skin Care offers a three step programme: high performance skincare, results driven treatments and 100% natural mineral make up.

There’s no stopping Newbury
Newbury is continuing to buck the trends as the town’s transformation continues, with the opening of new eating spots indicating how shoppers are making the most of the new look.
Chef Sam Mansfield has opened ‘casual fine-dining’ eatery Brebis in Batholemew Street, explaining: “It was pretty obvious from the start that we wanted to be here. You only have to walk down the high street to know it’s a great place.”
Pret a Manger has also arrived, and Russell Downing, managing director of Newbury’s Business Improvement District, says: “It is another indication of how Newbury is moving forward. Confidence in the town is increasing and the vibrancy of the town is increasing.
It is not just new businesses moving into the town that is creating a buzz. A number of established stores have been moving to bigger, brighter premises. Mission Hair and Beauty has moved to a larger site to combine both the hairdressing and the beauty salons under one roof, while Roderick Anthony hairdressers has also moved, taking up its new residence on the Broadway.
