The After-Party by Kayla Hadlington

Promotional Feature

It’s not just the party people care about, it’s the after-party. Fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger Kayla Hadlington talks about her own after-party and how it would inspire her hair and style

My Style

My style completely expresses who I am… I love colour and always add in cute pink accessories. During the day, I love denim, a touch of leather, distressed items and band tees. At night, I add more of an edgy chic vibe. With my hair, the more volume, the better. I tend to wave it with straighteners to show off my statement colour and once styled, I spray a lot of hairspray – the more, the better!

Hair Hack

“With a mixture of vibrant colour and heat styling, I’d recommend Kayla uses the VO5 Express Primer Spray to keep her hair protected and nourished during styling (also great for a quick blow-dry) and then finish with the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray to keep her hair in place all night.”

The Venue

I would love to hold an after-party at Sketch – it’s super-cool, pink and really matches my style. Or alternatively a really undiscovered, underground metal bar would be the ultimate all-night party venue. They’re my favourite kind of bars – the type where your shoes stick to the floor because of the amount of beer that’s been spilled on it over the years! You know there have been a lot of fun nights there!

The Performers

I would 100 per cent have to choose either Korn, Slipknot or even Marilyn Manson. Oh, and Limp Bizkit – they’re insane live and will make my after-party one to remember.

The DJ

For the DJ, it would have to be my babe, Zoe London. She’s a really good friend of mine, and her playlists always set the right vibe – her music is as colourful as her style too! I love going to her gigs as the crowd always goes wild and it makes me so proud to be her friend.

Dancefloor Song

You can’t really go wrong with ‘The Metal’ by Tenacious D. I love how it gets everyone dancing and singing along – especially me when I’m out with some of my closest friends, like [fashion blogger] Amy Valentine.

Guest of Honour

I would say Cristina Scabbia – an Italian singer best known for being in a heavy metal band – because I want to be just like her. She’s so inspirational and I love her style – it’s like sexy, gothic chic.
