Say hello to Hello Kitty
Tangle Teezer has recently launched a brand new collaboration with the cutest cat in town, Hello Kitty. To mark the occasion, we hosted a tea party along with Hello Kitty at Cutter & Squidge in London. Between cakes we caught up with Hello Kitty and asked her a few questions.
Your Hello Kitty Secret Garden at Cutter & Squidge is amazing! What's your favourite part of the secret garden?
Oh, thank you! I like the love seat at the end under the skylight with all the cushions – the perfect spot for afternoon tea. And the map of London mural too.
What was the most delicious cake at the afternoon tea party?
I love the Hello Kitty’s Playtime Dream Cake…no one expects the chocolate chips! And that’s why I’m winking on the top of the cake. Yum yum!
You're actually pretty well known for your baking skills. Do you have a favourite thing to bake?
My Mama’s known for her apple pie baking and Mimmy’s great at baking cookies. I’m trying to perfect lemon meringue pie at the moment!
We hear that you love to collect cute things. What are the most treasured pieces in your collection?
My kitten Charmmy and pet hamster Sugar are both precious to me. Charmmy wears the key to my jewellery box around her neck and inside there, you’ll find little bits which have sentimental value for me, like little stars and charms.
You're famous for the signature red bow in your hair. What's your take on hair care and accessorising?
Always pick a bow to match your outfit and mood – not many people know, but there’s a secret meaning to some of my bows… The red bow is about friendship, for example. Hair care, I’m pretty low maintenance, but the Tangle Teezer helps to keep me sleek and neat.
What do you think of your Hello Kitty Tangle Tangle Teezer?
I love it! It fits perfectly in my hand and is super easy to use on my fur. Plus, the polka dots are chic!
As a London girl cat born and bred, what are the best bits of the capital?
I like the Kyoto Garden in Holland Park and Columbia Road flower market! But exploring on foot is always fun, there’s always something new to discover.
You've always managed to stay on trend throughout the years. What's your trick to staying cool?
I always say ‘you can never have too many friends’ – so I love to invite people, like designers and musicians, to style me and dress me up.
Sounds like a great idea to us! If you’re feeling inspired, try styling your hair with Hello Kitty style bows using our new Compact Styler designs.
