Fashion: Super- Strappy Shoe Hero! May 2015
Raeann Haydon, Celebrity Fashion Blogger/Stylist
Nobody knows the power of a sassy shoe like the superstar Rihanna,and her latest footwear obsession is no exception. Rih has been spotted out and about on numerous occasions this month in her python wrap sandals from the provocative fashion Dsquared2. In fact she has become so infatuated by them that she has had to get them in both black and baby blue.
Unfortunately the Dsquared2 super strappy sandal is from their pre fall 15 collection (i know Rihanna is always one step ahead!) However you can get some quality sassy variations from your usual high street stop offs. Head to Zara or ASOS if your looking for a pair that will infuse your casual denim look with sexiness. And make a beeline for Office if you're in search of a pair that will inject the right amount of edge to an evening dress.

Fashion: That 70's show Feb 2015
Rae/ Celebrity Fashion blogger /Stylist
So we’ve braved the worst of the ice-cold temperatures, we wrapped up warm and we layered up, but as February draws to a close (yes already) we can wave goodbye to winter and say ‘Heelloo’ spring. And this season we’re going back to the 70’s. Block heels, silky pussy bow blouses, wide-legged high-waisted flares, hang on to your floppy hats ladies, as Spring 2015 is awash with seventies fashion throwbacks.
From beaded macramé dresses and pink suede at Emilio Pucci to platforms and turbans at Saint Laurent, the Spring Summer 15’ catwalks were a retro 70’s fashion revival.
The decade produced elegant looks with an effortless sense of cool; and this is how you should approach the trend today. Team flares with luxe peasant blouses, in order to create a refreshing alternative to daytime pencil skirts and jumpers.
Add suede to create a soft, delicate and luxurious touch to the look, pair a suede A-line skirt with a silk pussy-cat bow blouse, or add a suede bag to give your ensemble a 70’s update.
Fringing and tassels are also a must, but note, a little goes a long way, a fringed bag or waist-coat will be just right but if its threatening trip you up with every step then you've gone too far.
You can grab all these 70’s accents from the high street usual’s, Topshop have some great denim flares and if your looking for suede and fringing make a beeline for ASOS.
Flares, pussy bow blouse, platforms; check! Then lets get ready for that 70’s show!

Hair: Our girls feature in Professional Hairdresser magazine! Dec 2,2014
Hype Coiffure recently celebrated two of its stylists picking up awards at the Black Beauty/Sensationnel Hair Awards.
Natalie Joseph and Schola Rose were both honoured at the ceremony in the Hilton Metropole Hotel London,
It is safe to say that winter is well and truly upon us; we’ve pulled out all our knitted jumpers so that we can layer up, we’ve safely converted our summer wardrobes into more suitable winter attire, with the addition of a few pairs of tights, and we’ve made a beeline for H&M to grab that well needed scarf hat combo in the usual winter shades. Sigh!
Yes it all seems very bleak, however the autumn/winter 2014 catwalks have seemed to offer up a new solution to all our winter wardrobe woes; courtesy of designer brands such as Sonia Rykiel, Celine, The Row and Marc Jacobs a new style star and ‘must-have’ this season has been born, fashionista’s let us welcome ‘the woolly trouser’.
Warm, cozy and so perfect for braving those freezing cold temperatures. ‘The woolly trouser’ is slouchy, comfortable in appeal and is swiftly carving a distinctly casual approach to tailoring this season.
To complete the look, you must team your ‘woolly trousers’ with an equally slouchy woolen or fine ribbed style jumper; extra long sleeves will work nicely. Remember that keeping the profile streamlined is key. And finish with a pair of chunky white trainers by day, and by night a pair of stilettos; as style icon Rihanna demonstrates so excellently.
A woman who can pull of this look oozes confidence and has her life under control whilst still managing to seem effortlessly stylish and chic. Convinced? You can find some fantastic woolly trouser styles at Topshop, Zara and Whistles this season.
