Festival fashion is an entire style genre of it's own, hallmarked by clashing textures, bright braids, sequin accents, and lashings of glitter.

If you've even been to a festival on the Emerald Isle, you'll know that the style stakes are high, and there is nothing we love more at the SHEmazing HQ than seeing how real women style their covetable festival looks.

Proving that they know exactly what they're talking about, here's a hand picked selection of our favourite looks from Instagram from the Saturday of Forbidden Fruit.

Whether you're running out the door to work, or spending hours getting ready for a night out, it's safe to say that a lot of our beauty routine time is taken up by our gruaige.

In fact, 29 per cent of Irish women admit that styling their hair takes up most of their time when getting ready.

It's a total effort, and a new study conducted by Peter Mark found that a quarter of us completely ditch the styling process in the morning if we're late for work.

According to the survey, half of us spend an average of 4.3 days per year blow drying and straightening our locks, so you'd think we'd come up with a quicker way of doing by now, right?

Well, that quicker way has been invented and it goes by the name DAFNI.

Say hi to DAFNI, the new hair brush that quickly straightens your hair in a matter of mere minutes.


Created by engineering graduate, Sharon Rabi, all you have to do is give your hair a quick blast with the dryer, and then DAFNI does the work for you. A speedy brush through and you'll have super sleek, super straight hair.

What's more, if you're worried about the damage a straightener is doing to your hair (and you should be, 54 per cent of us straighten our hair up to four times a week), this tool won't damage your locks, and it's safe to use daily.

The DAFNI is available now from Peter Mark salons nationwide or online here.  The DAFNI Classic retails at €149 and the travel version, the DAFNI Go retails at €115.



If you've been on Instagram lately, one trend that keeps popping up is ruffled, well, everything. 

Ruffles are everywhere for spring, on absolutely every runway, and the high street has taken note.

Ruffles may seem like a tricky or unflattering trend, but it's actually really easy to pull off. 

Blue blouse €44.99, White blouse €44.99, Grey jumper €14.99

The delightful thing about the trend is that you can go as out-there or subtle as you'd like with the look, depending on how fond of a good frill you are. 

This blue H&M blouse is a dramatic way to do the trend, and would look equally good with a PVC skirt and fishnet tights as it would with dark jeans and loafers.

This white shirt is ideal for incorporating the look into your office ensembles, and this grey jumper is one way to rock soft, subtle and casual frills. 

Dress €18.00, Jeans €17.00, Pink dress €16.00

Dresses are another easy way to work frills, as all you have to do is throw it on and go, no styling necessary. 

These Penneys dresses are perfect with heels for a night out, or casual denim lovers can incorporate ruffles onto the hems of their jeans.

The frilled jeans look cute AF with a band T-shirt and converse, or with high mules and a slinky shirt. 

Jumper €10.00, Top €11.99, Dress €19.99

And for the casual frill-seeker, these pieces from New Look are the comfy, simple way to rock ruffles. 

This jumper is just the updated, spring version of your current staple knit, while this blue top is a chuck-on-and-go piece if we ever saw one.

This black dress for teens does subtle frills on the sleeves, so minimalists can get the look without the fuss. 

We're obsessed with ruffles this season, and keeping the look chic is easier than we thought. 


Kim Kardashian, bless her, has given us a lot over the years – not least endless (no, really – endless) talking points, topics of conversation, and issues of debate.

And today, we spotted this gem – another matter on which to pontificate. 

In the photograph, she can be seen in a nude body suit, over which she is wearing a gold-hued bra, along with black stockings and lace-up boots.

More bizarre is the location: a pile of earth that looks half construction site, half set of Room To Improve (albeit without Dermot Bannon lurking in the background in a hi-vis and hard-hat).

The shot was taken several weeks ago at the sprawlling Château d’Ambleville in northern France, and by famed photographer Juergen Teller.

Meanwhile, the entire shoot was styled by Kim's multi-talented 38-year-old husband, Kanye West. 

It's not all about Kim, though. Further images from the shoot show Kanye sporting his now trademark scowl.

Meanwhile, photographer Mr Teller features in short-shorts (emphasis on 'short') and the sort of red jacket your mammy would put on you before you walked to school on a chilly morning (no doubt his version is rather more expensive, however).

In February, and hinting at his artistic vision, Mr West declared: "I have millions of ideas and I represent a new generation just trying to express themselves in a broken world.

"I don’t call myself a designer as I was not allowed to go to Saint Martins because I was too famous by the time I realized I wanted to design.

"Fame is often looked down upon in the design world, so it’s actually been something I had to overcome."

With the resulting images from the French shoot making up a spread in an edition of System magazine, we're hoping to see yet more from the Kim-Kanye-Juergen collaboration as soon as possibe.

Frizzy hair is the bane of our lives and if you’re anything like us, yours will have just gotten so much worse over the past few days.

If you don’t want to end up looking like Monica from Friends when they went on THAT trip to Barbados, you would do well to have a read of these tips:

Be careful which products you go for
Avoid hair products that contain sulphates as it can make your hair pretty brittle and stiff.

Natural brush
When it comes to choosing a brush, make sure you go for one with a natural bristle as it grips at the hair a lot better when blow drying.

Hair oil
Apply a little oil into your hair after towel drying. Don’t do it when your hair is dry as it will just go greasy.

If you have thick hair, make sure you are pretty generous when it comes to conditioning and leave the conditioner in for at least three minutes.

Protect against the heat
Spritz on a heat-protective spray before you use a hairdryer or styling tool. It helps to avoid cuticle damage which can lead to frizzy hair.

Avoid alcohol
No we don’t mean put away the wine. Avoid using products that contain alcohol like hairspray as it can cause your hair to go puffy.
