A night in with your best girlfriends (and boys too if you wish), filled with beauty and bubbly can be a fantastic alternative to a traditional hens night out, or just a special time in the lead up to the big day.
In this four-part feature every week we will focus on a different element to help you create the perfect pamper parlour at home.
In the second part of this beauty series, we focus on hair treatments. Beautiful, shiny and glossy hair can be achieved for your big day. Healthy strands not only look better in photographs, they are better up to the challenge of holding intricate bridal hairstyles from your ceremony to dancing the night away at your reception.
