GET FACE ADDICT HAIR JUNKIED!
What would you like to be today? What would you like to feel or to express? Would you like to feel a little sexier?
That’s the thing about make up and hair, is that it can make you look like a million different characters, feel different emotions, embrace certain aspects as far as a making you look like a different sex. I’d say transvestites could do their make up far more glamorously than me but then you get specialists companies like FACE ADDICT HAIR JUNKIE who create their own looks and teach them to you with a life long guarantee.
Face Addict Hair Junkie was inspired in India by the festival of colours with the meaning behind it being a celebration of love, frolic, colours and music, which is as they say a little bit like them.
Serena Loos, Micky Kastly & Remy Morris founded Face Addict Hair Junkie a year ago in London and since have become renowned and visible within the Fashion, Media, Film and TV industry. Face Addict Hair Junkie pride themselves on being a creative and fun hair and make-up agency.
What is so unique and different about Face Addict Hair Junkie compared to similar agencies?

Face Addict Hair Junkie also feature in magazines such as GQ, Vogue Italia and Grazia. International DJ artists Mr C, Layo & Bushwacka to name but a few, you can be sure that your hair and make up will be nothing less than amazing after they are done with you.
If there is one show, or one party, or one client that has really stood out for you as a WOW moment or something unexpected what would it be?
It would have to be our first concept shoot we ever did as Face Addict Hair Junkie. We produced for Mr.C (The Shamen) and it made it’s way onto a three page spread in DJ Mag here and abroad celebrating his 25 years in the music industry.
Along with creating their 6 signature make-up looks and 6 hair looks, they also have a trendy infusion of 12 high fashion, commercial and cutting edge styles. These styles were created by the founders and are part of their exciting at-home or in-studio master classes. You are taught with a group of friends how to do a combination of The Smokey Eye, The Sex Blow Out, The Festival, The Disco, The Vintage, The Vintage Flick, The Runway, The Trend, The Rough Up, The Sunset, The Bun Up and The Deadly Straight. What a fantastic idea for a bachelorette or friends birthday party. I noticed a special Halloween edition, which is an absolute must. It’s amazing what they can do and make you look like.
Master classes are held at Trendy Juno, Shoreditch London. During a 4-hour Hair and Make-up master class, the professionals of Face Addict Hair Junkie teach you two of their looks to equip your to beautify yourself into that magazine cover look; The Smokey Eye and The Sex Blow Out. Along with the exquisite and clever make-up tips and ideas, you are treated to a glass of bubbly and a free retouched professional photo with the option to buy a few more if you please. A great memoir of your day or in my case a map of what you’ve learnt.
What makes you guys the professionals you are in this field?
We are constantly feeding and enriching our minds with art. We see life as art. Always asking questions, constantly learning and an absolute love of what we do.
Collectively we have 18 years experience working in the Fashion and Media industry.
According to the team at Face Addict Hair Junkie the best part of this job is that there is no consistency, you are able to push the boundaries to the absolute limit. Working with truly talented people who challenge your way of thinking all the time make chasing invoices a little easier to manage on a Monday morning.
At only £180 per master class and our little secret to you a discount offer of £55 per master class when quoting ‘FAHJ’, this is something I think every women needs to do once. www.faceaddicthairjunkie.com

It’s 1440 days – give or take a leap year – of making an effort, 4 years of aiming to both combine aspects of club culture and underground raving to create an ultimate musical experience which have found a way into the hearts and souls of many audiophiles residing in London and abroad.
Saturday the 25th of January is a date that should be marked in all - electronic music freaks - agenda’s. The Another Party crew will celebrate their 4th birthday in style and at the same time kick off 2014 with a bang. Secretly located somewhere in London, they’ve assembled a strong crop of DJ’s for their birthday bash. Topping the bill will be Steve Lawler, one of UK’s most distinctive DJs and producers. He has been dab hand at organizing warehouse raves since the early 90s and could be seen as a child of the acid house generation. Alongside Steve, Mathew Jonson will bring his own voice to the decks by doing a striking live set. Heating up the night with an uncommon sound, broadly influenced by harmonic and minimalistic piano and jazz synths.
Versatile and dynamic as any other is Another Party co-founder James Manero. Assuming there couldn’t be any better present than turn tabling on your own birthday bash, he will be turning it up a notch. Although Manero his focus has been more on the business side, he has been playing frequently in his native London and abroad, representing the Another Party brand around the world.
Join them on the 25th of January and keep posted about the whereabouts of the birthday bash.
