Carl Campbell_From A Boy To A Man

Carl Campbell

Carl Campbell grew up in a small town in Norfolk with his mum and older brother, after finishing school and two years of college studying psychology, law, English literature and business, he decided to spread his wings and move to London, The early days in the capital were far from glamorous, “I moved from  Thetford to London in 2004,  with no real main focus in life, I was living on a friends floor in a hostel for about 6 months”. he says.  “I knew i had to try to look for a place of my own, I’d spent all my savings and it was time to get focused”.  Carl spend a lot of time living in different hostels, trying to get himself on his feet, working in various places, including an Estate agents,  “After 3 months I realised I hated my job, and knew that a corporate position, suited and booted wasnt for me at all. I  found myself in between jobs once again, untill I began working in a United Colors of Benneton store”  he remembers.   “The way i broke into the hair industry was quite random, a stranger approached me in a club one night, and asked me if I’d be interested in doing any hair modelling for the salon he worked with”.

Deciding to go to the salon would turn out to be one of the best decisions, Carl would make in his life, no one could have predicted how sitting in that salon chair, would be the beginning of an amazing journey.  Admiring the creativity of the stylists around him, whilst he sat in that chair having his hair styled,  carl says he realised that this was something he wished he could do.   ” I’d always had a general interest in hair, I always loved playing around, styling my mothers  hair as a youngster”  Carl’s confidence to speak to the manager of that salon, changed his life forever, “I explained to the manager of the salon that I loved what the team were doing, and asked if they had any assistants positions available”.   Carl started working in the salon, and seeing his enthusiasm they gave him the opportunity to train as an apprentice, studying at Croydon college.

It seemed that Carl had found his calling in life. Then things went from good to great,   “My big break in hairdressing came in 2007,”…. I began assisting a lady called Michelle Sultan, who worked in the salon, she started to take me out on a lot of her own private jobs,  I assisted under her, working on photo shoots and music videos with celebrities. we were working with people like Alesha Dixon, & Booty Luv, and I helped Michelle out on the X-factor show”   The amazing thing about Carl is that his success, is down to his hard work , determination, and his confidence to network himself with all the right people.  Over that year,

Misa Nail Polish -London - Tokyo - Japan

So what are the trends for this spring and summer when it comes to a coat of polish on your fingernails??

The cosmetics designers for the big fashion houses, have gona all out ths season, bringing us a fresh range of colours.   The main influence for these colours, seems to be, the season of spring itself, Chanel and Dior, developed their nail colours in leafy greens, lilacs, soft pinks and even softer oranges, a perfect solution to having amazing colours on your fingers and toes, but not overdoing it during the day.

Dior and Givenchy, have not forgotten the night owls amongst us, wanting to make an impact, to pair with that fabulous dress or pair of heels on your nights out,. Dior’s, dawn inspired Trio, perfect for just an ocassion, and Givenchy staying true to their classic style and trend, by bringing us the classic poppy red, that is a constant must, always.

Solid block colour is how we are being shown to wear our nail polish this season, so keep the fancy patterns for those special occasions, but the use of two-tone polishes, using colours like dark pink and black together, or leafy green with a darker racing green, creating a modern tiwst on the tidy french polish is a definite yes, for those of you wanting to stand out from the crowd .

Big Brother UK saw its first round of nominations this week, and it has been revealed that there are two house mates up for eviction, west end star Andrew Stone, and Lengerie model Georgia Salpa.

We all got to know Andrew stone during his stint on the Sky1 tv show Pineapple Studios, but what do we know about the Greek Irish beauty that is Georgia Salpa?

 Georgia was born in the greek capital Athens, in 1985, but moved to Ireland with her parents in 1989 aged just four years old, and was raised in Killiney near Dublin.  in her teenage years, she worked hard to become a model, and did some rather unglamorous promotional work, a far cry from the magazine shoots she is known for today.  After various modelling assignments in many publications including FHM, she became one of the first FHM HOT 100. She then went on to do many TV appearances on Irish programmes The Podge and The Rodge show, Republic of Telly, Celebrity Salon and Catwalk to Kilimanjaro.  Salpa has now moved to the UK,   she dated Football legend George Best’s son, Calum Best for a while, but the pair split in 2011.  Georgia is famed for her stunning looks, bearing similarities to american-Armenian reality tv star Kim Kardashian, and her natural 32E boobs, which she claims are a family heirloom.

Georgia, Andrew and the rest of the house mates,  will find out who will be the first celebrity to be evicted from the Big Brother house on Friday, the public will be voting all week.
