Social Spy** The other side of the fence…

The other side of the fence… My client Schwarzkopf unveiled its collaboration with international supermodel Claudia Schiffer at Water Bar in Sydney last night!

As you know I get to attend some amazing events through Sydney Social 101, but you might not know that I also work in PR by day! Last night was my turn to work on the event behind the scenes for one of my lovely clients. It was a great event and fantastic to catch up with everyone – it also brought home all the hard work that does go on pre and post event to make it a success!

Take the guesswork out of styling

Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 3.48.37 pm

I don’t know if you’re anything like me and you’ve stared at the pages of fashion magazines wondering how to emulate celebrity curls and effortless waves… no?! Don’t lie 😉

 

If you are like me, don’t worry as the Remington Perfect Waves, ergonomically designed to bring Hollywood results to you is an actual life saver – no stylist required.

 

Minimum effort and maximum result – words we love when put together!

 

A detachable heat-resistant cover cleverly guides hair around the heated barrel to instantly transform locks into loose, cascading curls for a night on the town. Or, perfect relaxed beach-inspired waves by unclipping and removing the protective cover to reveal a deep-waver. To style, simply clamp hair between plates for five to ten seconds and reveal effortlessly formed waves at your fingertips. For something different, try a combination of the two for a head turning style.

This two-in-one multi-styler will not only get hair gorgeously groomed, but the addition of Advance Ceramic Technology will ensure hair is protected.

 

With 10 variable heat settings and a fast 90-second heat up time, achieving ‘it-girl’ hair has never been easier. So embrace your inner celebrity with Remington Perfect Waves and enjoy curls, waves and everything in-between all year round.

NOTE: This competition has now closed, the winners have been notified and they are Charlotte S Cotton and Nicole Kent. 

Thank you so much for all your entries – stay tuned for more competitions coming on Sydney Social 101.

Every so often I get asked to review a product, new technologies, beauty essentials for Sydney Social 101. I am usually reluctant unless it has a great fit with the site, and my readers! This is one of those occasions where I just can’t keep this little beauty secret to myself!

Oral-B and Braun have partnered up and designed the new Black 7000 electronic toothbrush model, creating one of the most high performing, multi functional electric toothbrushes ever.

After trying the Black 7000 for four weeks I can honestly say I will never go back to using a regular toothbrush again! A bold claim I know, but a true one!

The impressive gadget has a huge variety of modes including deep clean, sensitive, whitening, massage and tongue cleaning as well as five different brush heads for precision cleaning.  It evens lets you know when you are brushing too hard.  There is literally nothing this brush cannot do.

“With 48,800 movements per minute, the Oral-B 7000 Black features unique oscillating, rotating and pulsating bristles that provide a tooth-by-tooth clean – a technology heralded by independent reviews for removing up to twice as much plaque as a regular manual toothbrush” (Oral-B spokesperson).

The toothbrush comes complete with a slick travel case and a digital timer which signals dentist recommended brushing times.  Finished in a stylish black matt the Black 7000 ticks all the boxes and is definitely worth its price tag (RRP $299).  You will not be disappointed, I wasn’t and my teeth have never felt cleaner.

Don’t forget to pack this bad boy for your summer vacations, it is a must-have – bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Don’t forget your toothbrush!”

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of  2 x Oral-B BLACKs (worth approx. $300 each) simply like Sydney Social 101 on Facebook and tell us in 25 words or less why you should be picked!

Competition closes 5th February 2014 at 17:00.

AUSSIE CELEBS TEAM UP IN FIGHT AGAINST BAD SPOTS THIS SUMMER, PROVIDING AUSTRALIANS WITH $150,000 IN FREE SKIN CANCER CHECKS AND RAISING MONEY FOR SKIN CANCER RESEARCH

20140110-144105.jpg

Aussie media personalities, Fifi Box, Emma Freedman, Hayden Quinn and Bondi Rescue lifeguards Greg Bishop, Tom Bunting and Brad Malyon, have teamed up for Invisible Zinc Spot Check Month – encouraging Australians to check their skin for bad spots this January. Launching with a nationwide competition today, Friday January 10, 2014, Invisible Zinc Spot Check Month sees $150,000 worth of free skin cancer checks being offered at clinics around the country.

The six Aussie celebs got together to film an online video – which for every share on Facebook, $1 has been pledged to fund the Genome Project(1) – to highlight the importance of skin checks and further aid the detection and prevention of skin cancer. The Genome Project is an ambitious national research program into the diagnosis and treatment of some types of skin cancer.

With skin cancer Australia’s most common cancer and the country having one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world*, skin health has never been so important than at the height of the Aussie summer. Having grown up by the beach, it’s something that Bondi Rescue lifeguard, Greg Bishop, is very aware of.

“Being on the beach every day, you see people being pretty unsafe in the sun,” says Greg. “I’d say we’ve all underestimated the strength of the sun in Australia sometimes, so have almost certainly overexposed yourself at one time or another. That’s why I think it’s really important all Aussies have their skin checked regularly. Good spots can turn to bad spots without you noticing and the old adage is definitely true – prevention is better than a cure.”

“I’m not sure my generation has quite learnt what damage the sun can do to your skin,” Emma Freedman adds, “which really is appalling. We need to continue to push the point that sun protection is an ‘always’, not just a ‘sometimes’.”

Part of the key to helping ensure long-term skin health is via early skin cancer detection and prevention, which is why Invisible Zinc and MoleMap are providing 400 of the normally $375 full body skin cancer checks for free to Australians across the country this month. MoleMap is a leading skin cancer detection service with clinics throughout Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

Beauty 101 – CARE FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL LENGTHS AT THE PANTENE POP-UP SALON

20130918-121428.jpg

Salon located at World Square, Sydney CBD on Thursday 26th September 2013

Thursday 26th September will see the launch of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths pop-up salon in Sydney to mark the second year of the program and celebrate a massive 5,000 ponytail donations so far from generous women – and men – across Australia and New Zealand.

Women of Sydney are invited to make an appointment at the salon and experience the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Collection whilst learning more about the campaign. Women will be able to learn tips and tricks to grow their hair long and strong in order to donate during Pantene’s National Donate Your Hair Week, launching on Monday 11th November.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths is the first program of its kind in Australia and New Zealand to inspire women to grow, cut and donate their hair to be turned into real-hair wigs for women undergoing cancer treatment.

Appointments can be made for a wash & blow-dry or haircut when you donate with Pantene Beautiful Lengths ambassador, Barney Martin, and his team of expert hairdressers. If anyone wishes to donate their hair on the day, it must be a minimum of 20com and less than 5% grey with no permanent hair dye. Further details on requirements can be found on the website: http://www.pantenebeautifullengths.com.au.

Barney’s fellow Pantene ambassador, beauty expert, Zoë Foster Blake, will be on hand to offer advice to the women on growing their hair, styles and treatments.

Home & Away actress and Pantene Beautiful Lengths ambassador, Emily Symons, will be at the salon to cut the hair of one woman live on TV and talk to consumers about the program.
Emily comments: “I am so proud to be involved in Pantene Beautiful Lengths. It’s a cause close to my heart after losing my mother to cancer. Having witnessed first-hand the impact hair loss can have on women already suffering through cancer treatment, it’s so great that people across Australia and New Zealand can help by donating their ponytail to be turned into a real-hair wig.”
Appointments can be made by calling the Pantene Beautiful Lengths salon booking line on: 1300 651 905

A gift bag of P&G – the company behind many of Australia’s favourite brands from Olay to Oral-B to Ambi Pur – products will be presented to every woman who attends an appointment and experiences the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Collection.

The Pantene The Pro-V Keratin formula in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner helps weak, brittle, damage-prone hair gain strength against breakage for hair that is up to 10x stronger1, to leave you with soft, healthy, hydrated and beautiful hair.
