ask Us anything Tamara Nicole is a professional image consultant. She specialises in personal styling and colour analysis. Q Dear Tamara, there are so many summer shoe styles to choose from. Can you suggest three go-to flats I should be buying this season? A There’s one shoe trend that we have seen over the past few seasons that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and it’s the sneaker trend. The best option for spring and summer is a pair in crisp white. Team them with a sport luxe ensemble or with your favourite dress. For those who like a little height without wearing a heel, the chunky low block heel sandals are for you. Opt for a tan or nude colour to give the illusion of extra-long legs. The most popular shoe trend by far is the lace up sandal in a metallic hue. If you don’t want to go with a shoe that laces all the way up the leg, there are plenty of options that tie at the ankle too.

She specialises in precision cutting, creative colouring, event make-up and has expert product knowledge. Q Dear Janelle, how can I stop my colour from fading in between salon visits? A To avoid colour fading in between appointments I suggest using recommended salon products – shampoo, conditioner and treatments. My favourite at the moment is Goldwell Kerasilk Control range to keep hair smooth and manageable. For heat protection when styling with hot tools, I use KMS 2+1 styling + finishing spray which protects the hair and also has a heat memory for that extra hold. Adopt a colour refreshing treatment, conditioner, or mousse. I recommend Goldwell soft colour mousses for clients to use at home. Apply either on its own in clean shampooed hair or dilute the strength by mixing with conditioner and leaving in for 5 to 20 minutes. The longer it’s left, the more refreshed it will be! Not washing your hair everyday will also avoid it fading too quickly. But do ensure you book regular appointments to keep it nice and fresh. hair orbe.com.au JaNelle cheso Hyperdance Director Christina Bennett has over 20 years experience as a qualified Dance Teacher, leading a fresh and versatile team of friendly and caring instructors. Q Dear Christina, I’m not a very good dancer but I want to get fit this summer and don’t really enjoy going to the gym. What classes would you suggest I take? A Dancing is a fabulous way to exercise if you’re not a gym person. It not only gives you a cardio workout, it also tones your entire body as well as working your core, flexibility and muscle strength. All our classes at Hyperdance are designed for adults and we specialise in adult beginners. I would highly recommend a dance class if you are looking for a new way to exercise. There are several different styles you can choose from. Our Combo class is a great place to start if you’re not sure what style you’re into. Combining hip hop and jazz as well as basic fundamentals and a cardio warm-up, this class offers everything. Contemporary combines basic ballet exercises with modern dance technique, free-flowing movement, floor work and stretching.

She freelances for high profile clients and is also the owner of Paint Makeup School where she is a lecturer. Q Dear Nat, I always struggle with what to do first. What is the proper order when applying makeup? A First step in the process of makeup application is to prep and prime the skin by using a foundation primer. From here apply your foundation, concealer and eye makeup paintmakeupschool.com NaTasha sToNe Emma Northey works at Norwood Garden Centre. She specialises in indoor plants, succulents, herbs, designs, gift plants, terrariums and potted gardens. Q Dear Emma, I’m looking into a backyard revamp. What are three garden design trends I should know about? A 1. Evergreen hedging or screening for privacy and aesthetics. Popular plant choices for this include Syzygium species – lilly pilly, cupressus sempervirens glauca, Italian pencil pines, murraya paniculata, orange jessamine, olive, citrus, buxus and photinia robusta. Also creating green walls with evergreen climbing plants, in particular ficus pumila and Chinese star Jasmin. Tip: Keep it simple – aim to achieve a neat, minimal look by mass planting one variety. 2. Eco-friendly gardens. Create a healthy garden eco system with a mixture of herbs, flowers, fruit and vegetables, attracting bees and beneficial insects and not using toxic pesticides or herbicides. Choose fruit trees rather than ornamentals and plant more flowering annuals and perennials. garden 299 Portrush Rd Norwood emma NorT hey primer and set the products with a translucent powder. Then I like to work on the brows – brush the brows to groom and then add brow colour. Next step is to curl those lashes, apply eyeshadow, eyeliner and finish off the eye makeup with mascara. Create definition to your canvas by applying powder products for contouring and highlighting and finish off your makeup routine with an application of lip colour. You’re ready to go! Tip: For flowers try zinnia, dahlia, aster, carnation, foxglove, cosmos, coreopsis and sunflower. 3. Vertical gardens and raised gardens beds. Growing fruit, vegetables and herbs in planter crates or pods keeps the plants organised, clean and easy to maintain. Vertical gardens are being utilised more for growing vegetables and herbs as well as succulents which remain very popular. Ta p is great fun too, making beats with your feet is awesome and anyone can learn. You don’t need to purchase tap shoes to do this class either. Tap tones your bottom and legs as well as working your core. It’s a killer cardio workout too. Heels is huge in the US and you can do it right here in Adelaide. Think Beyoncé crossed with burlesque. Dancing in heels requires a lot of core strength and you will also learn how to correctly walk, stand and dance in heels.
