When TNMA met Tan France (of course we talked about grey hair)
According to reports, better customer understanding, improved design, and Sienna Miller have helped revive M&S’ fortunes. But we’re here for Tan France (who appears in the latest campaign). Last year, my assistant Helen and I had the chance to sit down for dinner with the Queer Eye stylist, who was in London promoting a fashion collaboration. We chatted about growing up poor in the North of England, finding our way into the fashion industry and the significance of the French Tuck.
Of course, I had to ask Tan about his statement quiff and find out the specifics of his haircare regime. As we’ve been talking about ‘washing less’ recently on TNMA, I thought readers might be interested in Tan’s styling regime:
‘I wash my hair every day, which Jonathan (Van Ness) hates! I use Clairol purple shampoo to combat brassiness. Then apply Argan oil, which I buy from Boots, to add moisture and finish with Firsthand Pomade to keep the shape. The volume is all from the blow-dry!’
M&S is looking good right now. Here are some of our favourite autumn/ winter pieces:
