This @tuclothing #allboobswelcome campaign launches next week across all social media channels and magazines

This @tuclothing campaign launches next week across all social media channels and magazines. This page is in @voguemagazine
.
The campaign has undoubtedly done what it set out to do in a positive way.
.
A grid of 26 women ( including myself) of all ages, shapes and sizes captured un-posed, laughing and confident in their own skin.
.
Message = Embrace the body shape and boobs you have as you are all unique. No airbrushing or filters. Candid unposed shots. 
Helping women understand that there is no such thing as a perfect body shape.
.
However in my professional life,  I have always tried to demonstrate to both my celebrity and non-celebrity clients in over 30 years of working together with top photographers that how you hold yourself, stand and the angle you are shot at can make a significant end difference to how your body shape and size appears on film. .
Straight on to camera will always be unflattering. Angled slightly away from camera will always be better. .
Next week I will demonstrate how a slight tweak of stance can make a significant difference (still natural with no filters or airbrushing).

Continuing from my last post on hair loss with some vox pops about how important hair is to womens’ self confidence and personal identity

Continuing from my last post on hair loss with some vox pops about how important hair is to womens’ self confidence and personal identity…

Hairloss and thinning hair can be devastating and demoralising to women of all ages

I’d forgotten that I’d been a Schwarzkopf brand ambassador a few years ago for their hair loss product myself so this is a short clip of me from their ad campaign back in the day.
.
I am posting about hairloss today as one of my young women clients was very concerned at the amount of hair she was losing.
I did a lot of research and consulted a trichologist with her. One in London I can highly recommend if you need one esp as she looked at the person holistically. She was reassuring and super-helpful.
.
Here are some suggestions to help prevent further hair loss.
.
Never brush or use a tangle teaser when hair is wet as it is more elastic when wet and can stretch and break off more easily.
.
Never pull hair back tightly with thin hair elastic bands, always softer thicker ties and loosely.
.
Use natural shampoos and conditioners, .
Use as little direct heat( dryers, tongs, straightening irons) as possible.
.
Don’t massage the scalp where there is hairloss, it will make it worse not better.
.
If colouring try to use natural hair colour products, if bleaching ask your colourist for the lowest possible peroxide % in the mix
And never let your colourist over colour or overlap the colour each time. Leave as long as possible between appts to allow for root regrowth.
.
Hair loss can happen at any age post pregnancy, menopause, at times of severe stress or trauma (and of course with chemo). Also from lack of iron (anaemia) lack of vit D, over- exercising, underactive thyroid, lack of vit B , autoimmune disease, dramatic weightloss, PCOS and hormonal inbalances.
.
Please have a full blood test to check if you do have vitamin or mineral deficiences and you can then supplement. If possible include a hormone check too.

Remember the mind is a powerful tool and positivity is key.
