Headmasters salons are now offering Last-Minute appointments from just £18 for men and £25 for women. To get this purse-pleasing price, book quoting ‘stand-by’ on the day or the evening before for morning appointments – slightly more hassle, and you can’t chose your stylist, but what a saving!

Hot New Celebrity Cuts and Colours
Headmasters reveals how to achieve the most coveted celebrity styles…
The HM experts say: Colourist RobeRt CRyans, HeadmasteRs GuildfoRd
The key to achieving this stunning colour is depth and shine. Ask your colourist for a copper gold glossing or the new L’Oréal INOA colour specially formulated for sensitive scalps. It’s perfect for enhancing natural red heads and gorgeous on ivory complexions looking for a glamorous makeover.
Robert PAul MitCHell tHiCKeN uP £12.35
Cutter siobHan soles, HeadmasteRs GuildfoRd
Ask your stylist for long layers starting from the chin to the collarbone with a soft sweeping side-fringe. The key to this look is keeping hair in luxe red carpet condition, so regular trims are essential.
KÉrAstAse NeCtAr tHerMiQue £17.90
We have a new style crush: bringing Monroe-esque curves back to Hollywood, the star of cult series Mad Men, Christina, is feminine, fashion-conscious and smoking hot. This flame red beauty is one to watch.
stylist staCey bates, HeadmasteRs GuildfoRd
Prep damp hair with Kérastase Nectar Thermique, to smooth and protect whilst blow-drying. Apply Paul Mitchell Thicken Up from roots to ends to create volume and movement.
Use a medium round bristle brush and separate hair into sections, create volume and curls by wrapping the hair round the brush whilst
drying. You can ask your stylist to teach you how. Finally finish with a spritz of Redken Quick Dry Finishing Spray for hold. www.hmhair.co.uk
Star Style The HM experts say: Colourist simon asHtaRi, HeadmasteRs bRomley
Ginnifer has a cool, dark, nearly black shade to make the most of her skin tone and green eyes. I recommend L’Oréal’s INOA colour (available at all Headmasters) as it is much glossier than usual dark tints but still gives a sleek colour that covers 100% of greys. Discuss your colour options with your colourist first, as a full block black colour doesn’t work on every skin tone, but it can be tailored to you by using different deep shades and slices of lighter colour. Cutter ClaiRe mCCaRtHy, HeadmasteRs bRomley
Ginnifer has fine hair, which can have a tendency to be a little lacklustre but looks fantastic with some serious texture. Taper around the nape of the neck and hairline, with longer lengths through the crown to create an elegantly disheveled look. It’s a super-versatile cut, which means you can change your style on a daily basis. It looks gorgeous on heart-shaped faces with small features, and makes a real feature of Ginnifer’s almond-shaped eyes. www.hmhair.co.uk
PAul MitCHell sPrAy wAX £11.50
GinniFer GoodWin Ginnifer’s quirky glamour has made her a firm favourite on the red carpet, but her latest hair transformation has made her a style sensation. stylist fRan ClaRke, HeadmasteRs bRomley
This low maintenance style can look innocent, coquettish, sexy and elegant depending on how you style it. To get Ginnifer’s textured look, prep the hair using Kérastase Elixir Ultime. It’s a beautifying oil and my must-have miracle worker
KÉrAstAse eliXir ultiMe £32.75
– great for any hair type to add shine, suppleness and strength. Next, finger dry hair from side to side to achieve volume and root lift. Then simply blast with Paul Mitchell Spray Wax to achieve texture. Once you are happy with your look, add L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.art Fix Design for all day, all night hold.

The TINSELTOWN TEASE The fast-track Christmas style update for party perfect hair
he Tinsel-Town Tease is the hair update for the Christmas season, sitting perfectly between tumbling curls and easy undone chic, it’s perfect party hair. Inspired by Angelina’s hair half-up/half-down look, it’s a stylish combination of relaxed waves with a little exaggerated height at the crown to flatter the face. Only available at Headmasters salons, your stylist will create loose curls with a tong one section at a time, tease the hair from your forehead to crown with a pintail comb, and secure the front section of hair at the base of your head with pins. Available in all Headmasters salons from £24.
My hair is naturally thick, frizzy and generally unruly, causing my morning routine to involve wrestling with a dryer and straighteners for at least an hour. And as I colour my hair, permanent straightening was never an option for me. That was all before I booked in for The Headmasters Brazilian Blow-dry. My hair was cleansed and rough dried, then the super hair nourishing treatment was applied section by section and sealed with straightening irons to lock in all that keratin. I obediently didn’t wash my hair for three days but once I did, I had that easy, swishy, just washed but not fluffy hair I have always wanted. It costs from £150 to £250 (length of hair depending) and lasts three months, needless to say I will be back! The Brazilian Blow-dry is only available in selected Headmasters salons.

y colour is naturally a light brown, which I love in summer when my hair is sunkissed and I’ve got a tan but in winter it looks really drab and dull. What should I do?
Don’t go for a complete colour change because you love your hair in summer. Subtle enhancement is always flattering and easier to live with than a big change. Try adding a few light pieces around your face for a subtle change that looks gorgeous GISELE: SUNKISSED and natural – even when it’s growing out! Balayage would be perfect for you.
