Millennial brothers’ hair and beauty store surges through COVID-19

“COVID-19 has really shifted the way consumers shop and view online shopping. Now they’ve got a taste for it, our goal was to really impress new customers and cement them as online shoppers,” he said.

“We’ve hit $3 million [in monthly sales] a year or two ahead of schedule. So it’s accelerated our growth in the space.”

Prior to starting Oz Hair & Beauty, Mr Nappa worked casually as a labourer and restaurant waiter to support himself while in university, but in 2012 when his labourer boss went on holidays, he realised he could not make enough income to support himself from just his restaurant job.

This sparked his decision to leverage his parents’ connections running hair salons and start an eBay store selling hair and beauty products.

For a few years, Mr Nappa ran this business out of his father’s warehouse, taking over the entire space by its third

‘The Crown’ shares image of Emma Corrin in replica of Princess Diana’s wedding dress

Fans of Netflix’s “The Crown” will soon be able to watch Princess Diana get married again.

The streaming giant’s official Twitter account for the show shared a snapshot of Emma Corrin on the set of the original series, which shows the actress in character as the late British royal.

‘THE CROWN’ INTRODUCES PRINCESS DIANA, ANNOUNCES SEASON 4 PREMIERE DATE IN NEW TEASER

Corrin, 24, stands demurely with her hands clasped while she looks off into the distance in a gown that looks almost like an exact replica of what Princess Diana wore at her July 29, 1981, wedding.

“A first glimpse of Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Emmy award-winning costume designer Amy Roberts wanted to capture the same spirit and style of David & Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, without creating a replica for Emma Corrin.”

Delta Goodrem reflects on biggest beauty blunder as a teenager

Delta Goodrem admits she cringes over photos of herself from the early 2000s because of one regrettable beauty trend

Delta Goodrem grew up in the spotlight, having signed her first record deal with Sony at the age of 15, before joining the cast of Neighbours two years later.

But the Born to Try singer, 35, finds herself cringing these days when she looks back on her rise to fame – and it’s all because of one rather outdated beauty trend.

Delta revealed on Channel Seven’s Sunrise on Monday that she would over-pluck her eyebrows in her teens and early twenties because pencil-thin brows were fashionable at the time.

‘Shopping around is impossible when you don’t have a computer’

Christine Chapman was helped by her brother-in-law Stephen Harris

With little more income than the state pension, Christine Chapman is careful with her money.

The 70-year-old keeps paperwork meticulously in a filing cabinet and knows what is coming in and going out.

Her bills were cut by hundreds of pounds a year, simply by switching insurance, phone and mobile suppliers.

It all sounds like an advert for competition and the benefits of shopping around.

But Mrs Chapman was lucky.

Misplaced trust?

The widow, from County Durham, does not have a computer and does not know how to operate one. Her smartphone is only used for calls and messages to family and friends. She had no way of shopping around for better deals.

What she does have is a caring brother-in-law who taught IT and, after a conversation at a family gathering, realised Mrs Chapman

From ELLE

On July 29, 1981, the world met one of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time: the dress that Lady Diana Spencer wore to marry Prince Charles at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. That dress, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, became legendary for several reasons, one of which being its seemingly endless, dramatic train (it was 25 feet long).

This sartorial feat will make another appearance in The Crown season 4, and fans of the show finally get a first look at the recreation. Netflix released an image of the gown being worn by actress Emma Corrin, and every last detail, down to the ruffles, appears to be there:

Wedding bells!

A Legacy of Style: Chelsea Chau-Kuok On Her Mother-Daughter Fashion Bond

Shopping adventures

The mother-daughter duo are frequently seen together at exclusive events, including runway shows and cocktail parties. But Chau-Kuok’s most memorable fashion moments with her mother are their shopping trips to destinations like Tokyo, New York and Marrakech, the latter being where Chau-Kuok celebrated her marriage to Kuok. The couple hosted a lavish event for 100 guests in May 2017 where ChauKuok wore no less than six fabulous gowns.

Shopping for her wedding looks was an event in itself for her and her mother, who travelled around the world to the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and, finally, to couturier Ashi Studio in Beirut, Lebanon, where she found an embroidered coat and gown that she wore for both her Hong Kong wedding, a lavish ceremony for 700 guests at Sevva, and her Marrakech nuptials.

“As soon as I saw the dress, I knew,” says Chau-Kuok. “I’m a very
