In case you haven’t seen our posts on social media, our reminder in every newsletter and just everything we’ve been talking about - or basically if you’ve been living under a rock… We’ve been running our biggest competition ever!
We’re giving a holiday for two. Yeah, you heard us. If you win this competition, you’ll get return plane tickets and five nights (five star) accommodation to one of five locations. We’ve compiled a list of cities that we love and if you win, you get to pick where you want to go!
Paris, New York City, Honolulu, Tokyo or London… how are you meant to pick? So we thought we’d round up some of the highlights below to get you thinking about your dream holiday - plus some important hair care and skin care to pack!
New York City
The Big Apple, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, whatever you want to call it - it’s the ultimate destination. You can shop your little heart out at all the big brands and famous department stores, ride a bike through SoHo or even have breakfast at Tiffany’s (you really can) - there’s something for everyone. Some of the best restaurants in the world call New York home so book yourself in for a luxurious dinner or if you’re not too fussed, try all the classic NYC eats like a sandwich from Katz Deli or a hot dog from Papaya King.
For New York City, we can’t go past Redken, whose home is on 5th Avenue. Pack the Extreme Shampoo and Extreme Conditioner to make sure your hair is properly cleansed, protected and has some added shine. Then throw in the Extreme Play Safe 3-in-1 Treatment to the mix to make sure your hair stays protected from heat - plus it repairs it from within!
People call it the City of Love for a reason - so maybe this is the perfect trip to take your partner if you win. If you’re going for the first time, see all the famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomph and visit the Mona Lisa at Lourve. If you have some time, sit at a dream Parisian cafe and people watch - they’re really the most stylish people on Earth. Of course, you can take a day trip out of the city to visit Versailles or taste some real champagne… in Champagne.
How can you not use Kerastase in Paris?! If you’re blonde, we’d recommend packing the Blond Absolu Bain Ultra-Violet to make sure your colour stays fresh and add the Blond Absolu Cicaflash for extra hydration. Or if you’re after something more nourishing for general hair types, try the Nutritive Bain Satin 1 Irisom and add a pump of the Elixir Ultime L’Huile Originale to keep your hair sleek and shiny in the City of Lights.
This destination is for all the beach babies. Tropical weather, surfing lessons and just the ultimate laid back and relaxed vibe - what more could you ask for? This is the destination if you just want to go with the flow - stand up paddle board lesson, why not? Snorkelling with the turtles in Hanauma Bay? Count us in! You can even step it up a notch and go for a hike to Diamond Head to see the incredible coastline and the volcano. Immerse yourself in the rich culture of Hawaii and book yourself in to see a luau and just enjoy yourself.
For Honolulu, you want to keep your skin hydrated and soft for all your summer wardrobe items. So remember to pack body and bath care like the Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion and the Coconut Sugar Rub - Coconut Milk and Honey Infusion to make sure your skin stays polished. And don’t forget the most important part: sunscreen. Bondi Sands Suncare SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion is lightweight and water resistant then switch it over to their GLO Shimmer One Day Tan to get your skin looking perfect for dinner.
What isn’t there to love about Tokyo? The food is by far the main reason to head to Tokyo where you can get Michelin star experiences or duck into a hole in the wall ramen joint for more delicious eats. Stop into a 7/11 (seriously) and try the fun snack in there too. You can shop in Shibuya, head to the top of the Tokyo Skytree and see the city below. Or head to the beautiful shrines and Imperial Palace - places steeped in Japanese history and culture. You can even dress up as Mario Bros. characters and ride around Tokyo in go karts.
As for what to pack for Japan, you can’t say no to Shu Uemura Art of Hair. Created in Japan, this hair care range is super luxurious and could only be bought in Japan. However, now you can get your hands on the popular Cleansing Oil Shampoo and Cleansing Oil Conditioner before you head over there.
If you love big cities, then London should be your pick of the lot. See all the sights like Big Ben, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Then duck into a classic English pub for a hearty meal and a pint. If you’re after something a little more cosmopolitan, head to the British Museum and go to Harrods for an incredible shopping experience. Experience Picadilly Circus in all its glory and just head along Oxford to see everything on offer. Or head to Notting Hill to see all the charming houses and the Portobello Market.
One thing to note about London is there water can be quite harsh on hair so you definitely have to pack a clarifying shampoo to use at least once to make sure your hair stays soft and shiny. Pack the Nak Ultimate Cleanse Shampoo which removes impurities and build ups but is also gentle enough to use often. Pair it with the Nourish Conditioner to add hydration and nutrition back into your hair.
