Love hair and make-up? 1D stylist Lou Teasdale shares ‘The Craft’
It’s not every first-time author who can get celebs like Ed Sheeran, Caroline Flack and One Direction stars Harry Styles and Liam Payne to show up at their book launch – but then not every first-time author happens to be Lou Teasdale, hairstylist to the biggest boyband (and, in 1D’s Harry, some of the biggest hair) on the planet.
In ‘The Craft’, Lou shows all of us girls with a love of hair and make-up how to style up our look from home – starting with the basics and sharing essential advice on choosing moisturisers and foundations, how to shape the perfect brow and apply false eyelashes, and what she classes as ‘beauty bag essentials’.
‘The Craft’ also features step-by-step make-up and hair tutorials that are as edgy, stylish and fun as Faran Krentcil’s quirky and gorgeous illustrations throughout the book. So, if you want to learn how to perfect liquid eyeliner flicks, create a smoky eye, or apply lipstick that won’t budge, then Lou has all the answers that you need.
As you’d expect from one of Britain’s hottest rock-and-roll hair artists, the book’s also full of all the hair trends of the moment, whether you fancy dip-dying, clipping in extensions, or toning your tresses. And as if all that’s not enough, Lou also includes a smattering of nail art techniques that are easy to follow but will ensure that your talons look super cool.
At 96 pages, ‘The Craft’ isn’t a big book, but it looks and feels lovely (we like the quality hardback feel), and crams an awful lot of handy tricks into a small space. So, if you want to share in Lou’s beauty inspiration from the fashion-obsessed streets of London – and start having some fun with your own hair, nails and make-up – then ‘The Craft’ is a great place to start!
