Looking at how celebrities are wearing their hair during award season this year, (a lot of twisted and creative buns) which guarantees the style to stay that way throughout the night. I noticed how stunning the blonde tones were.

Rosamund Pikes Blonde highlights

Rosamund Pikesfinely weaved warm and ash blonde highlights adding dimension to the simple shoulder length bob – GORGEOUS!



Rosie Huntington Whiteley Blonde hair styles

Rosie Huntington Whiteleys rich gold balyage blending seamlessly from her light warm ash roots. Again two counteracted tones mixed together to create a soft light brown that compliments her skin tone beautifully.



Julianne-Hough twisted blonde bun

Julianne Houghs twisted blonde bun ticked all the boxes. Rose gold alternating with sandy blonde on top of a dark blonde base. The twist not only enhanced the colour but it gave her height.


Saoirse Ronan blonde golden globes

Saoirse Ronans light ash soft highlights blending into her golden ends.

Not a blonde but equally a stunning colour was :


Zendaya Golden Globes - beautiful blondes

Zendayas Mochal flashed highlights breaks up her rich and glossy chocolate base. The foils were woven thickly so that when her hair is being worn naturally wavy they create dimension amongst her curl.


These latest predictions are bold and fun. If you’re not game, I recommend introducing any of these tones in a subtle way. If you’re feeling for a change then these colours will certainly turn heads!

You will never see grey hair models in magazines that’s because the companies that advertise in these publications don’t want you to.

I am often asked “can I grow out my hair colour and go grey?”

Yes you can only if you’re 100% white (grey). You see white hair mixed with your natural colour looks ageing but a full head of grey can look very chic. Because grey hair has no pigment and keratin it will frizz and look dry. You need a good shaped haircut (consider a short hair style when going grey), good products and effort to keep it looking styled or it will never work.

Grey hair needs toning otherwise it will start to stain from pollution, smoke, chlorine, etc. A deep violet pigmented shampoo and conditioner will neutralise these unwanted tones or a toner from your hairdresser can do the trick instantly.

My final advice to look fabulously grey is styling. If it is not smoothed out and lacks product it will fuzz. There are a few grey headed clients who I have come across that won’t need to remember all of the above as it naturally looks silvery, white and smooth.

Jennifer Lopez Curly Hair


Embrace your bounce by defining and emphasising your kinks.


The trick to mastering manageable curls is to select a style that will complement your curls rather than fight against them. Ask your hairdresser to banish bulk with a low maintenance cut that takes weight out of length while encouraging natural movement and bounce. Avoid high maintenance styles that requires too much blowdrying, as it will only dehydrate your strands.


Short Curly Hair



Dark solid shades can make your kinks appear heavy, so add definition by lightening your lengths a little. Don’t be tempted to try all-over bleaching as your hair type is already naturally dry and it will increase dehydration, making it prone to breaking and frizz.


Using a wide tooth comb, evenly distribute a curl-enhancing product through damp hair and then twist to add shape. Invest in a diffuser attachment for your hairdryer – an essential tool for creating perfect curls – and gently place small sections of your hair inside the diffuser while you blast, leaving them to dry. Finish by running a few drops of serum or oil through your strands to keep them frizz free and shiny.


long curly hair



Nourish your strands without wearing them down, with a curl specific shampoo and moisture rich conditioner. A weekly hydrating mask and leave-in conditioner will also help keep your hair hydrated and fight fluffiness.

The New Bob Emma Stone


This seasons celebrity favourite (un) done BOB is the ultimate cool-length for Spring.

This style is worn well straight as it does with a loose wave.


The new bob Karlie Kloss


Ask your hairdresser for a BOB that sits above your shoulders.

The ends require to be softly frayed with some gentle texturising rather than the sharp blunt line we all identify BOBS with.


Naomi Watts - The New Bob Straight-Side


Long or disconnected layering helps with movement and the best thing about it is you don’t require a lot of time styling it neatly as those ends need to move.


The New Bob Katy Perry



You can create so many different hairstyles and shapes making this style super-flattering and versatile.

How to : Apply volumising spray on damp hair combing it through before blow-drying it smooth. For extra texture sprinkle hair powder on to the ends and ruffle it through – easy!

I shortened and blended the sides and back for a sharp finish and textured and trimmed the top leaving one side heavier and disconnected.


Outdoor photo shot after makeover


To achieve the look, blow dry the hair naturally with fingers and apply the smallest amount of Rockstar Wax, pushing upwards and to the side.

I wish Lawson all the luck using these photos in his portfolio with his modelling career.

Short Wavy Hairstyle



Cut : When you are considering a new style, you need to work with your texture and encourage natural movement. Shoulder length to long styles combined with a subtle layering will increase manageability. It’s also a good idea to avoid short, blunt cuts to prevent the “pyramid” effect – where your hair is flat on top and bulky at the ends. Unless you are prepared to blow dry or straighten your hair daily, stay away from fringes and sharp layers.

Colour : Exaggerate your movement with subtle shade shifts. Try to avoid significantA�colour changes as they can stress your strands, making them more prone to frizz and flyaways. Try to stay as close to your natural hue as possible or consider balayage – a technique focusing on lightening the mid-lengths and ends – to help enhance your natural movement.



Naomi Watts at oscars

  1. A technique using dark and light tones to accentuate shadow and depth on the face.
  2. If your face is round or square you can colour areas to specifically elongate or create a more oval shape. It can also work to shrink your forehead or define your cheekbones.
  3. A lot of consideration is taken into which tones work best for you and how much colour placed around the face to achieve the best results.

Heart Shape

Heart shaped face - Kate Moss

Light pieces are woven around the jawline and ears to soften the bottom half of the face. By mixing fine light tones with depth at the roots a more oval shape can be created.

Square shape

square shaped face - Sandra Bullock

Multi-tonal layers of light and dark are applied to all corners of the face shape, around the jawline and temples. This softens any hard lines and creates depth and texture.

Oblong shape

oblong shaped face - Sarah Jessica Parker

Deeper tones are applied to the root along the parting merging into lighter pieces weaved from above the ears to the ends of the hair. This will create an illusion of cutting off the face to create a slimmer and shorter shape.

Round shape

round shaped face - Kirsten Dunst

Ligher tones of colour are applied around the hairline from ear to ear to elongate the face and add brightness. Darker tones are applied to the underneath of the ears and the lower ends of the hair around the face to give the face shape more of a point.

Oval shape

Oval shaped face - Kylie Minogue

Not the only shape that suits most styles and colour but it is seen as the most desireable – all most the hourglass figure of face shapes. A completely bespoke colouring scheme can be created to add in depth thickening texture and shine.

Hair accessories

Hair combs and pins can be gorgeous with braids and chignons. Place them around the base of a bun or above one ear to hold shorter layers.

Hair Accessories


tortoise barrette

When you want to pull your hair back quickly use a barrette. It looks classier and more expensive than an elastic. To ensure a tight hold, thoroughly tease the underside of the hair before gathering it into a ponytail and snapping the barrette as close to the nape as possible.

Texturised Wisps

A little bottle of powder

What are texturising or matifying powders and how do they work?

How it works?

Achieving volume and texture from a little shaker bottle to create crazy volume is all about the fine white powder made from silica silylate. Silica is a rough particle which gives a matte look and will help “bulk up” the hair by increasing friction between hair fibres. The various ingredients in these powders all interact to absorb moisture, which means it will get rid of excess oil, contributing to the volumising effect.

How to use?

Use hair powder on dry hair, shaking the bottle gently achieving a fine dust on areas of your head where you require instant lift. The more you use the higher your head goes. Once you get the hang of the application technique, it is a versatile product, and you only need very small amounts. It definitely takes some practice to master as the delivery system can be weird and messy, so you have to make sure you blend it in well.

Which one to buy?

Some are stronger than others or some you need to use a bit more. Some have multiple holes and some only have one. The best one for overall volumising is OSIS-DUST IT TEXTURE MATIFYING POWDER. It not only hits the most surface area on your head and spreads the product evenly it’s more gentle with subtle volume.

Your hair will have a sortA�of cotton candy texture to it, especially if you use it all over, so if you’re a fan of natural feeling shining hair you might dislike this product.

Overall unlike hairsprays that is a wet product that can leave a residue and can weigh your hair down, this is a favourite styling product of mine. For it’s instant volume, to its actual size to fit in your bag and the endless creations of high hair!Short and Choppy
