Scarves plus hairstyle update

Scarves plus hairstyle update

Scarves, scarves glorious scarves. I never seem to have enough of them. In my opinion they are the best way to jazz up an outfit. They are ideal for travelling as they fold and roll superbly and can be tucked into shoes and small crevices in your case. All you need is a couple of neutral outfits and plenty of scarves and you can ring the changes and create a variety of different looks to take you through the day and evening.

If you can’t get to a french market Etsy have some good cotton scarves. I like this one

St. Tropez market is definitely the place to come for scarves, especially the summer cotton ones. Every time I visit I feel like a kid in a sweet shop. I have a favourite stall which I check out first. They have a good selecton and the quality is excellent.

Now for my updated hairstyle. You can see from the first photo that my hair was beginning to look flat and lifeless. The wonderful Sandra from Jean Louis David in St.Tropez came to the rescue and zizzed it up. She also added a rinse this time which gave extra shine to my grey/blond hair.

No I definitely do not own the yatch!

I still use the same products to keep my hair controlled and shiny. I wash my hair approximately twice a week with L’Oreal silver shampoo (US link) (UK link).  It helps to keep my hair a silvery tone and prevents it going that horrid brassy colour. I then add Kerastase discipline fluidealiste (US link) (UK link). This helps to tame my hair and stop it going frizzy, which it tends to do when the weather is damp or humid.

Sandra uses loads of L’Oreal tecni Art fix design (US link)(UK link) while she is drying my hair in order to give it lots of body and to hold the waves in place. See how she does it in a video here.

I have just finished reading  “Thirty five steps from St.Tropez”. It is a charming novel set in the Var region of France. It is written by Jane Dunning who used to live in this area.  Check out her facebook page to learn more.

    I love scaves too – like the blue one you are wearing in the first pic. As the neck gets more wrinkly they will be essential but I do like to wear my necklaces too.

    I’m interested in your new haircut, looks great. I have fine grey/white hair which I wash most days because I’m a restless sleeper. Sometimes I just do the front bit. I like the shampoo you mention but the other products (other than the l’oreal one) seem very expensive and I would need convincing that they are worth the money!

    Hi Josephine, your new hair style looks fresh and carefree. I am trying to use more pastel colours this Spring, less boring than the usual black, white and striped for me….

    How long does it take from ENGLAND to FRANCE?

      Hi La Contessa

      We have various ways of getting to the South of France. The quickest way is if we take an early flight from Heathrow to Nice and hire a car we can sometimes be in Grimaud by about 2.00pm. Once a year we drive down (about 12-14 hours door to door) We usually find a nice place half way down to stay, have a nice meal and see a bit of central France. The third option is about 7hrs on the train to Marseille and then 1 1/2 hrs drive to our apartment.

      Trust this answers your question.

    Your hair looks fabulous, Josepine! I also love to shop for scarves, and rely on them for variety when traveling. That pink one is really pretty!
