Five Minutes With Fleur Baker.
Our beautiful friend Fleur gives us her take on fashion, style and beauty.
I’ve been a client of M11 since it opened in February last year, but Mobeen has been looking after my hair for more than a decade. What I love about M11 is that the focus is always on helping me manage my hair at home. I know I’ll never be able to produce the perfect blow wave by myself, but I love that Mobeen and the team never give up trying to show me how. I also love that I feel a million dollars whenever I leave the studio.
Style and beauty are about personal expression. Do what feels right for you. I work at MUSE Boutique. What I love about beautiful clothes is the confidence they give to their new owner. So I suppose fashion inspires me in that sense, and that is what motivates me in my work.
Strangely, I’m currently obsessed with a language app called Duolingo. I’m using it to learn French. I’ve surprised myself with my level of diligence in using this app. I also really like Christian Dior’s Lip Glows. They’re a cross between a lip gloss and a lip balm and come in lots of pretty, subtle colours.
Beauty tips: for your hair, sleep on a silk pillow case at night (Mobeen taught me that). And for your face, use products with SPFs or wear sunscreen. I know that sounds like a cliché, but I really wish I’d paid more attention to this in my 20s and 30s, and 40s…
