Yes, Canny Food is supposed to be all about food. But being vegan isn’t all about what we cram into our cakeholes. Nope, the vegan lifestyle also encompasses the stuff we slap on our faces and the clothes we wear. I spent a long time struggling with those conundrums more than I did working out which dairy-free choccie was my fave. Beauty can be more of a minefield than sneaky milk powder in a bag of crisps, let me tell you.
I’ve found a list of vegan-friendly hairdressers and beauticians here in Newcastle and the surrounding areas to help in this arena. I haven’t tried them all – I wish! – but many I have seen recommended on vegan walls, etc. I hope you find it useful. It will be updated if I discover more places as I go.
