  1. Getting on with the in-laws! Lulu offers her tips on becoming a mother-in-law

    1
    Article by Lulu. While every newly married couple is warned about nightmare mother-in-laws (we’ve all heard the jokes), something that is not mentioned is the sudden change in the balance of the family as a whole when one of your children gets married.  As well as gaining a daughter or son, you are gaining a whole other family who will become part of yours for ever.  Their advice will be just as important as yours and their role just as key.  You will all attend the same ‘big’ events.  You will love and care about the same people.  And if you are lucky enough, you will become co-grandparents – and both be quite sure no-one has loved this grandchild quite like you! Hoping my son’s...
  2. Lulu shares her hair tips – we can all have fabulous hair over 50!

    1
    Article by Lulu For better or worse I seem to be known for my hair!  I have always been fascinated by hair and when I was younger wanted to be a hairdresser – I would do my mother and sister’s hair for them on a Saturday night (whether they wanted me to or not!).  I remember my mother’s comment when I married John Frieda  . . .’FINALLY you have your very own hairdresser!’  I have to admit I am a little obsessed so I thought I would tackle some of the questions I get asked all the time . . How do you get hair to look full and bouncy? Well, it starts with a great cut.  That’s essential.  My hairdresser,...
  3. Lulu’s Golden Rules for Fitness and Getting Ready for Strictly and Brendan!

    Article by Lulu I am often told I don’t look my age – and I certainly don’t feel it, which helps!  It seems that 60 is the new 50 . . . however, I must admit it’s not something that just happens (unless you are very lucky).  I am not obsessed, but I do put a bit of time and effort into looking and feeling my best – I consider it part of my job.  I work in a youth obsessed industry – and I want to go on singing and rocking and rolling as long as is humanly possible – so that means looking after both my looks and my health and energy levels.  I am a great believer in ‘use it or lose it’ and I do...
  4. Lulu talks about her Reinvention and New Career in her 60s

    4
    Article by Lulu Life is full of surprises at every age.  I never would have thought I would have my own skincare range in my 60’s!  In my professional career, I’ve been many things – actor, singer, songwriter…And while I have always been very driven to find the best products and ingredients (because I’ve been in the spotlight since 15 and it’s been my job to look good), it never occurred to me that I would add beauty “entrepreneur” to my resume – especially at this stage in my life.  It’s easy to sit back and ‘put our feet up’ once we’ve reached a certain age.  We think we’ve accomplished all we can and seen all we’re meant to see.  Too many people believe life has passed them by and lose...
