Welcome to the first feature from our Deck Your Beauty Haul series – a dedicated series of holiday beauty tips and inspiration for your own personal beauty hauls.

Gift-giving at Christmas is super fun, but lets not deny that the enjoyment of receiving pretty presents is the icing on the cake. And as beauty is the greatest gift of all, it’s time to focus on the pampering gifts to add to your own Christmas beauty haul.

Meet Anabel of Philip Kingsley 

Kicking off our first series is Anabel Kingsley, Director of Communications, Trichologist, hair & scalp expert at Philip Kingsley. London based Anabel lives in the heart of the west end, just a stone’s throw away from the Philip Kingsley Clinic. Anabel is a qualified trichologist, starting her career at Philip Kingsley in 2006 after growing up amongst trichologists.

As well as overseeing all the communications for the Philip Kingsley brand, she has made multiple appearances on TV, and has written hundreds of articles for international magazines and websites ranging from Good Housekeeping and The Huffington Post to InStyle and Women’s Health. What she doesn’t know about hair probably isn’t worth knowing!

Take a read of Anabel’s expert Christmas beauty tips below, along with her 3 favorite beauty haul must-haves.

Anabel’s Ultimate Christmas Beauty Tip

Hair health and growth is highly reliant on what we eat – most importantly, the amount of protein intake. It is, after all, the substance our hair is made of. With so many protein-rich foods being served around Christmas, it’s the perfect time to give your hair a nutritional boost from within. So take advantage and tuck in! My favourites are turkey, devilled eggs and roasted almonds.

    Dandruff is most common in the colder months, and apart from being infuriating and uncomfortable, it can also cause hair loss if it isn’t addressed asap. This award-winning shampoo, originally formulated for Sir Laurence Olivier, clears flakes and itching quickly and effectively, without stripping or drying the hair. As an added bonus, it has a lovely apple fragrance.
