As the new face of Clairol’s Nice’n’Easy home hair dye, Tess Daly isn’t easy to pin down as she rushes between her presenting and ambassador roles. However I was lucky enough to squeeze in a cup of coffee with the lovely lady last week at the Soho Hotel.

Having entered an absolutely sweltering suite (which mindlessly had an open fire installed rather than air-con in 30°C heat) I was humbly greeting by a beaming Tess as she invited me to join her for a drink.

We took a seat and began chatting about her brand new role as the ambassador for Clairol’s Nice’n’Easy range. The pairing is clearly an obvious fit. Tess – with her gorgeous, sun-kissed blonde locks and aspirational status – is a hair care brand’s dream! She seemed excited about the role though and even admitted using the dye herself between professional visits (she’s No. 103 by the way!). Although, I must admit I’m a bit dubious about the use of home hair dyes so I probed her about the benefits of using such products.

“It really depends on what suits your lifestyle. It’s a treat going to the salon, I enjoy getting my hair cut and going for treatments but because being blonde is such high maintenance (with regrowth and roots needing to be done every few months), it’s quite nice to have the option to do it yourself at home. Especially as a working mum as time’s at a premium!”

Tess clearly values the health of her hair too as we moved onto the heat outside. She’s always trying her best to keep it in good condition saying: “When my hair looks good I feel good, like a pair of shoes… It’s the icing on the cake!” So it’s no surprise her summer hair routine is rigorous.

“When I’m in the sun I make sure I use a lot of leave-in-treatments or I spray on conditioners such as Pantene’s amazing new Aqualight spritzer.”

She’s also a fan of the Clairol Colour Seal conditioner which was recommended to her by Clairol’s Creative Director, Duffy. Plus, let’s be honest, we’d all be a sucker to anything recommended by the man responsible for Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz’ luscious locks!
