  • The mousse, hairdryer and trio of brushes every woman must own.

    Wed, 9 November 2011 10:06AM

    As a beauty editor, I’m constantly fielding grooming-related questions and hair woes seem to always be high on everyone’s agenda. Most of the time, it’s questions like: what’s this dry shampoo stuff? How can I stop my hair from looking flat before the morning is out? How did you curl your ends like that? I… more

    For all your Primpers with fine, slightly limp hair, I have some brilliant news for you. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, SISTER. I too have fine, slightly limp hair, and when I’m not tossing it into a top knot I do, believe it or not, actually spend 1 -2 minutes fluffing it up to fool the… more

    Thu, 25 August 2011 10:29AM

    This is a first world issue I know, but I really struggle to find practical hair ‘dos for work. I have this issue where I really don’t like my hair dangling in my face as I type so as soon as I get to my desk, I pull my hair back into a ponytail. Boring,… more

  • Drew Barrymore’s Rather Good interpretation of the beehive / backcombed hair trend.

    Thu, 12 August 2010 4:34PM

    It’s a triumph! All sexy and middle-parted with some volume at the top and long and sunkissed and toffee and honey on the tips and dark at the base… she’s clearly gone for the ’70s end of the ’60s scale, as opposed to more ’50s end that we see on Mad Men and that were… more



  • The Massive New Beauty Trend I Haven’t Really Raved on About Yet.
