In The Bag – Millie Bloy

As 2021 winner of Creative HEAD’s IT LIST Rising Star award, Millie Bloy is one to watch. Her Instagram feed is awash with beautiful commercial colour looks, but when Millie isn’t busy looking after clients at CODE Hair Consultants, you can find her lobbying her local MP in support of the industry that she’s so passionate about.

A self-confessed ‘girly girl’, Millie shares just what goes into a young award-winners kit bag…

The Kit Bag

My cutting tools are all stored in my baby pink Ted Baker bag and being a girly girl it always has to be pink! The size means I can see everything inside at a glance, with my matching comb and rainbow clips – perfect for long, thick hair and my homage to PRIDE. When I qualified I treated myself to a pair of OHKA scissors, they’re super affordable and a dream to work with. You’ll also never find me without my Victoria’s Secret Seduction body spray for a quick refresh between clients and my Starbucks tumbler for staying hydrated.”

Colour Kit

“My go to product for beautiful blondes is Wella Blondorplex with extra-wide foil for maximum lift. I keep my favourite blonde toner swatches close by, and am a big fan of Wella Illumina 9/60 and Colour Touch 10/0 and 9/16 for the perfect post-bleach tone. For multi-application colour services, Invigo Color Service is an absolute lifesaver. It seals the cuticle and preps the hair for toning and glossing. L’Oréal Professionnel Silver Shampoo and conditioner are my at home product recommendations for all my cool blonde clients.”

Stylers from IT LIST Rising Star winner Millie Bloy


Sebastian has to be my favourite product collection. My hero products are No.Breaker, Drynamic (it’s like texture in a bottle), Trilliant and Dark Oil; the smell of this is to die for!

Capes & Styling Tools

“The salon invested in Rude Capes last year as we love the way the pattern compliments our salon branding, it’s a real talking point for the clients! ghd are my go-to tools for styling. The hairdryer cuts drying time down by half which is amazing when running a busy column.”
