DressCode: Hello Summer

I attempted to be the hostess with the mostest at a party held recently at Captain Baxter to launch the Summer social season in Melbourne. We decided upon the tongue in cheek (or should that be tongue in chic) dresscode of ‘Yacht Club Luxe’ which saw guests break out sailor-detailing, floaty pirate-wench blouses, kaftans and a plenty of nautical stripes. Interpreting the dresscode; I personally went with a Yeojin Bae dress that looks like scuba material but is actually crepe, a hint of turquoise and marine colour on the lashline. Plus mermaid hair!

L’Oreal Professionnel kindly invited me to try a new shade so I visited the sophisticated Paris-meets-Japan salon Maison Tsumiki and let stylist Mai work her magic. The chosen look comes from L’Oreal’s new Spring/Summer hair colour collection they have titled ‘Ombres Natures’. It plays on the two-tone or graduated hair trend, a sister to balyage, using INOA shades in mocha which are intended to match seasonal fashion especially florals. The trend is quite subtle as the colour is deftly hand-painted in two distinct layers and then fused where they meet. My tresses are now a richer shade of mahogony than my raw hair on top with a hint of the darkest chocolate peeking out from underneath. “It’s a very natural look” explained Mai.
