Long Locks

Hair & Beauty, The Dressing Room

Who at some point has said, “I can’t cut my hair, I’m growing it!”? We know we definitely have!! The reality is that the longer you leave your hair growing without grooming, the more length you will have to cut off when you do eventually give the hair salon a visit . . . and then you’re back at square one (wanting long hair)!

We’ve put together a list of hair care tips that we’ve learnt from some of the best

in the industry to help you with growing a long and healthy mane:

  • Maintain your locks with a trim every 6-8 weeks
  • Use cream treatments suitable for your hair type to help repair and maintain your lush locks846117-1_l
  • During the cooler months blondes should opt for a high lift tint to rest their hair from bleach products
  • Use a thermal iconic hairdryer to cut down drying time which means less split ends from your hair being exposed to scorching heat
  • 846103-1_lMaintain your colour and condition of your hair by using the right products to suit your hair.
  • Always use a heat protecting serum before applying heat to your hair, this will reduce the amount of split ends you get between visits to your hairdresser.
  • Cut back on split ends and work with what you’ve got – find the right products to work with your hair naturally to avoid constantly using flat irons, curling tongs etc to style it.

Builders Arms Hotel

Entertainment & Leisure, The Dressing Room

A recent visit to the Builders Arms Hotel on Gertrude Street Fitzroy had us running to our keyboard to share this place with you!

fvLE8lkhEjdMfAThink casual and homely, yet stylish. We LOVED the vibe we got as soon as we walked in, it was warm and welcoming.

The tricky part was deciding what to order, wanting to order everything!!! Over all everything we did try was satisfying,

I would easily order it all again! Portion sizes for individual and share plates were all reasonable (didn’t leave hungry).

What we recommend to try:

  • Crispy pork and school prawns
  • Chickpea salad, marinated carrot, green chilli and shanklish
  • Red duck curry
  • Peppered Fillet steak, potato puree
  • Roasted potatoes, garlic
  • House chips

Potatoes_LR Tulip-Shadow_LR1One of the master chefs behind the dishes at the Builders Arms Hotel is Andrew Mc Connell. He  has also managed to impress us on a visit to Golden Fields (another great place we recommend) where he also is to credit for the amazing dishes there. Other restaurants he is linked to that you may have heard of include Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co.  Everything he touches turns to gold 😉
