A witty, wise and truthful beauty handbook for real women on what works in real life from Sali Hughes, beloved journalist and broadcaster.
“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together” Elizabeth Taylor
Beauty books. Exquisite coffee-table affairs featuring improbably beautiful models with wholly-unachievable-to-most women looks, product review-heavy volumes which become almost instantly outdated, or tracts of holistic mumbo jumbo, like how to make an unproven face pack from organic molasses and rough-hewn porridge oats.
In Pretty Honest, Sali Hughes draws on over 20 years of wisdom, advice and expertise to show real women how to make the most of makeup’s physically and emotionally transformative powers. Covering everything from teenage skin to mature beauty, botox to bridal make-up, sickness to good health, it's a work that is part instruction manual, part love letter to makeup – in a writing style that combines beauty editor, feminist and painfully funny best friend.
Over 200 iconic products that are among the best and most influential in the beauty world – past, present and future.
‘Sali Hughes has created a universe filled with galaxies of beauty secrets’ Charlotte Tilbury
Packed full of beauty wisdom, Pretty Iconic takes us from the evocative smell of Johnson’s baby lotion through to Simple Face wipes, NARS Orgasm and beyond, looking at the formative role beauty plays in our lives.
Considering which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz, and who they might be best suited for, in Pretty Iconic Sali Hughes uses her witty, inclusive and discerning style to look at some of the most significant products in beauty – from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today.
Delving into the products that are simply the best at what they do, the inventions that changed our perception of beauty and the launches that completely broke the mould, Pretty Iconic is a treasure trove of knowledge from Britain’s most trusted beauty writer.
atriona Mangham, headteacher of Fairfield high school in Bristol , recounts the story of a recent visit to her school by a member of the shadow cabinet. “One of the staff said: ‘Can I introduce you to the head. ’ – and he shook the hand of the man standing next to me. ” It says something about Mangham that she was not going to let this go. “I told him: ‘You won’t get my vote’,” she says. “I said: ‘Isn’t it interesting, your assumption that the head of an inner-city secondary would be a man. In secondary schools 62% of qualified teachers are female and yet only 36% of headteachers are women. Nationally there has been no rise in the proportion of female heads for the past three years. And those who do make it to the top job face discrimination and a “motherhood penalty”: female heads who are mothers are 50% more likely to start off in the bottom third of the advertised pay range than male heads who are fathers, according to a... In this apparent pocket of equality and sanity, two-thirds of the 21 secondary heads in the city are women. Female heads here say Bristol’s more enlightened gender mix started when there was a rethink of education in the city in 2006, when the local authority needed to transform its then derided secondary provision. Jackie Turner, the council’s strategic lead for secondary education, says it resulted in fresh thinking on the types of leaders needed. The council, she explains adopted “the Labour version of academisation to transform broken schools”, pushing in resources and new heads into schools that were not doing well. This impetus for change meant that governors – desperate to try something different – were instantly more willing to look beyond men in their 50s as heads. Suddenly more women started walking into the headteacher’s office in schools across the city. And Turner says that despite the cuts, Bristol has retained its investment in governor training, where many local authorities have decided to let it go. It’s governors who appoint heads, so training matters. Last year Bristol was one of six local authorities to buck the national fall in attainment and improve its GCSE results. Many of the heads here can tell a tale or two about the problems they encountered on their journey to headship, and how it made them want to make a difference. At Bristol Metropolitan Academy, principal Sally Apps – who was appointed deputy at the school aged 29 – recalls that in one school where she taught, “My face didn’t fit. Source: www.theguardian.com
