    Fri, 28 September 2012 12:56PM

    You might not have heard of the fashion brand, Balmain. But you would have surely seen the French house’s designs. They’ve been all over the red carpet these past few years.

    Mon, 5 March 2012 2:16PM

    Oh, Sam McKnight, you are good. Whether it’s understated, I’m-not-trying texture or a super-polished blow-dry, you always manage to achieve the type of hairstyle we really want to copy (rather than those over-the-top ‘dos that look great on the runway but are way less achievabl- slash-flattering in real life).

    Tue, 5 October 2010 9:57AM

    Balmain is a favourite here at PRIMPED HQ. Sure, we don’t actually get to wear the clothes (unless we plan on spending $6000 of a jacket. We wish) but we sure can wear the hair. And makeup. That’s the beauty of beauty Primpers, it’s free. Well, virtually free, bar a few bucks on a hairspray… more

    I’m sorry, I know I should be the one geeing everyone up about all of the amazing trends exploding from the Spring shows, but after only one day at the shows over here in Paris, in my stripy top and beret, chomping on a bread stick, I have to say COME ON, HAIR AND MAKEUP… more
