    Paired with embroidered-macramé mini dresses, fringed ponchos and gowns that swirled in a tie-dyed rainbow of colours, the Pucci beauty look was always going to play up to the 1970s style.

    Mon, 22 September 2014 2:05PM

  • How To: Wear your Hair off your Face (Without Resorting to a Top-Knot)

    Wed, 9 July 2014 8:30AM

    Disclaimer: I have nothing against top-knots.

  • Emma Stone Shows: Why a Great Fringe Can Take You Anywhere

    Wed, 17 October 2012 1:20PM

    It’s always the way. Just when I make the decision to grow out my fringe, along comes some celebrity on a red carpet somewhere looking ah-may-zing in her own set of bangs … and I can’t help myself: I reach for the phone and book in a fringe-trimming session ASAP with my hairstylist.
