Fun and frolics at the Batiste Dry Shampoo launch

Last Wednesday me, Katie and our good friend Olivia (from tellusfashion.com) were lucky enough to attend a very plush affair hosted by Batiste Dry Shampoo.  To celebrate the launch of ‘Lace’, the latest edition to the ever-growing dry shampoo range, we were treated to a variety of girly treatments; think grown-up slumber party style, with mandatory champagne!

Already being a dry shampoo fanatic (I carry an emergency can of Batiste’s ‘a hint of colour’ at all times darling) this was an event I wasn’t going to pass up on.  With the venue being decked out with manicure stations, a photo shoot area, a make-up room AND a mini hair salon, it was every girl’s dream. Oh and did I mention the insane cakes on offer topped off with edible mini Batiste cans?!  Katie made a bee line to get her hair ‘did’ (and no, she didn’t choose this look for herself!) while myself and Olivia received incredible manicures.  And don’t you just love Olivia’s nail polish colour?  An unusual mix between grey and purple…grurple perhaps?

We were even lucky enough to receive amazing goodie bags, obviously with a courtesy can of ‘Lace’!  Being dubbed as the ‘grown-up’ of the range, ‘Lace’ takes inspiration from vintage embroidery and romantic elegance (two massive recurrent trends at the moment, for which we are still thanking Kate Middleton’s wedding dress a year on!).  Oh and yes before you ask, it smells DIVINE.  Lace, and the rest of the Batiste collection, is available from Superdrug and Boots stores nationwide for £2.99.  With a price tag that appealing, no wonder they have been going strong for the last 30 years.  So whether you need a refresh in-between washes, or do what I do and use it volume too, why not give ‘Lace’ a test run?
