Hair and Makeup at Darren Scott Salon, Maida Vale

Hair and makeup by Darren Scott Salon, London

When I got an appointment booked in with Darren Scott at his salon in Maida Vale, London, I was fangirling like crazy. Darren has worked with Katy Perry, AlunaGeorge and Jourdan Dunn, so of course I knew that I would be in more than good hands.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I had this booked in specially for my birthday last month - and I wholeheartedly recommend booking with Darren if you have a special event coming up.

I already had some ideas in mind of how I wanted my hair and makeup to look when I showed up at the salon. I had seen a hairstyle on their Instagram profile which I though was really fun and different, so I asked Darren if he could recreate this on my hair and he was more than happy to! He started by washing my hair using gorgeous Shu Uemura products, then curled it and set the curls using (lots and lots of) clips. He left some hair out to create the braids and buns on top of my head, which were the fun, finishing touches to this style.

We then moved onto makeup. Now, I don't usually get my makeup done professionally (I generally prefer to do it myself, even for photo shoots), but I was so floored by how perfect my makeup was when Darren did it. I genuinely don't think my skin has ever looked better. I asked for a dewy base with a black smokey eye and eyeliner flick, and that's exactly what I was given - I couldn't have been happier.

I noticed that Darren used the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer - the product which made my skin look super glowy - and also Stila's Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Molten Midnight for my eyes. I've now bought both of these myself and they've definitely become makeup bag staples (although I'll probably never be able to recreate my makeup to Darren's amazing standards!).

Throughout my appointment with Darren I was made to feel welcome and comfortable. We chatted about hair, work and my birthday weekend plans, and he made sure that I was happy with the final look. Of course, we took some selfies at the end of my appointment to show off my new style! To see the process of how this look was created, watch the video below:
