BRITS Spa at O2 from DecleorDecléor

A favourite backstage at the BRITs Spa, ‘I f***ing love Decléor!!!’ Jessie Ware passionately shouted from the top of her lungs down the dressing room corridor!

Harry Styles from One Direction, dominated the Decléor Spa area in search of Fiona Brackenbury’s award-­winning touch. Word was out that Decleor’s Head of Training and Education, Fiona had eased the stresses, released the tension and revived jet-­lagged skin so much so that Harry called upon Decléor for a private dressing room treatment before the band’s show stopping performance.

“So many artists like Harry have such a crazy schedule that tension can easily build up in the neck and shoulders, due to a lack of down time. The BRITs Spa is perfect for those power booster treatments to revive in between rehearsals and performances.”

Fiona hot-footed it (not one of their treatments) across London to treat BRIT nominee Rita Ora’s skin needs. Rita and her make up artist team were given a preview of the NEW 5-in-1 Decléor BB Cream which delivers 24-hour hydration & protection while refining the skin’s texture with an adaptable shade that creates a luminous and even skin tone. Alongside the exclusive preview, at the heart of the brand’s product collection lay the 100% natural, 100% active award-winning Aromessence Super Serums.

Fudge was backstage working their hair magic by offering styling, dry cuts and blow-­‐dries. Already big fans of the brand, MUSE were eager to pop by and boost their collection of Fudge goodies. Plus, just before his Radio 1 recording, Huw Stephens got the full Fudge treatment with a cut and style by Fudge expert Natalia who made sure he was perfectly groomed and red carpet ready.

Creative Director John Vial said, “it was all about volume -­‐ we couldn’t use enough Skyscraper and Textures Creative Styling Dust, and the boys couldn’t get enough of our Matte Head Gas!”
