PFF 2013 VIP Opening Night – backstage with L’Oréal and Lauren Wood

September 13, 2013 in events by the mannikin


Last night I drove to the city in a downpour of rain, leaving my baby girl behind for the first time for longer than a church service. But it was well worth it. Greeted by the lovely Bianca of L’Oréal Professionel – the official hair partner for PFF – at the WA Museum, I walked into the bustling backstage room where the hair was being styled by Brad Ngata and the L’Oréal I-D team.

I don’t often take time to give myself a manicure, mainly because, a) I’m a perfectionist so it takes forever and b) after all that it chips within a day. Especially now, being a mum with a little baby to take care of 24/7 I don’t get much time to myself, and when I do I don’t feel like wasting it by painting my nails!
