We all might be feeling the effects of the credit crunch but your hair doesn’t have to suffer! Headmasters is offering standby appointments from just £15 for men and £20 for women. Available to book on the day, or the evening before for morning appointments, it’s a little more hassle – but the saving is definitely worth the call! However, for this great price you can’t choose your stylist.
Innovation Nanomax is a revolutionary new hair treatment that uses nanomolecular technology to reverse hair damage. Tiny particles penetrate the hair shaft and replace lost proteins, which means you get back that shiny swingy gorgeous hair you had pre-straighteners, beach holidays and colour! It’s available in three formulations: repair, intensive and hydrate.
It is available in Headmasters Mayfair, Putney, Weybridge, Wimbledon Village, Fulham Broadway, Richmond and Bromley. A course of three is recommended for the best results and costs £150, or separate treatments are £60.

air has definitely moved on for autumn 08. Gone is summer’s matt look hair texture and we say a very welcome hello to swingy, shiny autumn hair. So ditch the dry shampoo and reach for the shine spray! The key to hair in the coming season is unfussy and soft. At Burberry Prorsum and Oscar de la Renta, we saw pin-straight, shiny hair teamed with a 70s’ nude lip. Versace, usually famed for its überglam hair, sent girls down the runway in the prettiest buns with natural, wispy pieces falling across the face.

The key to hair this season is unfussy and soft
glossing at Headmasters. This gentle hair colour washes out after a few weeks but gives hair a super-shine injection. There is still some hair drama out there for those who want to push hair boundaries a little further. It is the season of the film star muse – Baby Jane-inspired teased dos were seen at Christian Dior and Marlene Dietrich-big rollered hair at Diane Von Furstenburg. So, grab your hair volumiser and go!

Fearne Cotton is the cool girl we all want to be. She wears the hottest trends and gives them her own cute rock-chick edge. Here’s how to copy her unique style…
STEP ONE Blow-dry hair with a thickening lotion to add texture, and part to the side.
Tie hair to the side in a low pony. Pro Tip: “Use haberdashery elastic for a firm hold instead of a hairband,” says Herman Ho from the Headmasters Artistic Team.
STEP THREE Split hair into three sections and wrap around the band in alternate directions, using French pins to secure. Pro Tip: “Weave the pins in and out of the hair, as if sewing, for an up-do with staying power,” says James Busby from the Headmasters Artistic Team.
Darren Hau from the Headmasters Artistic Team did Fea rne’s hair for a new top secret TV series this month and he used Kérasta se Bain De Force and L’Oréal Techni Art Liss Control.
E W RECOMMEND: L’Oréal Techni Art Aero Volume gives soft, long-lasting volume £8.95
STEP FOUR Pull out some pieces from the bun and straighten using hair straighteners. Then, take a thin section from the fringe and crimp it.
STEP FIVE Rub the palms of your hands across the head to roughen up the texture and give it a little undone rock-chick edge. 10

Long faces are longer than they are broad and have good bone structures
Celeb Longs: Hilary Swank, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker
. . . .
Short cuts look gorgeous; jaw to shoulder length can also look really good. If you have fine hair, try shorter cuts that make your hair look thicker and your face wider. If you have a long forehead, a blunt fringe will look really feminine. Paul Mitchell
Thicken Up £11.50
Go for ultra long locks or centre partings.
SQUARE . . . . .
HILARY SWANK: SHORT WORKS WELL WITH A LONG FACE
Square faces have a strong, angular jaw and often a dominating forehead
Go for a cut that softens the jawline, is feathered at the top and has layers around the ears. If you have fine hair a long, straight, blunt cut is super flattering. Do fringes that skim the eyebrows and are longer at the sides – try Headmasters’ fringe menu to find the best one for you. Some fine highlights around the face can be really flattering.
Cut above the jawline, avoid bobs that finish at the jaw and sharp cuts.
Celeb Squares: Katie Holmes, Rosario Dawson, Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Victoria Beckham

. DO: . .
Choose a style that gives you volume around your chin. Soft layers work really well. Try to emphasise your amazing cheekbones! Short bobs look cute and sexy – they work especially well on curly or wavy hair. Fringes can work – blunt or short and wispy are best.
A round face is as long as it is wide Celeb Rounds: Kirsten Dunst, Kate Winslet, Charlotte Church, Renée Zellweger
. . . . 16
Graduated bobs and choppy cuts where pieces fall onto the face. Long side fringes will work to elongate the face and highlight the cheekbones. An off-centre parting works well to break up the roundness.
Avoid rounded cuts and volume at the sides, especially with curly hair.

ANNE HATHAWAY AND LIV TYLER WORK IT FOR BRUNETTES
LOVE THIS LOOK
he latest celeb hair craze is the midi. It’s the perfect length, slightly longer than a bob and a refreshing change to long hair. The midi is ideal for those who want to ease themselves into a shorter cut from long lengths. It’s the look that helped to highlight Gwyneth Paltrow’s comeback and enabled Emma Bunton to shed her Baby Spice image for grown-up chic. The good news for the rest of us is that it’s really flattering on most people. It’s right for you if… You are bored with your long hair but are scared of a severe cut. Jonathan Soons from the Headmasters Artistic Team says: “It’s the perfect transition cut from long hair because it is still versatile. It’s long enough to wear straight, wavy and www.hmhair.co.uk
up – so those used to longer lengths won’t find it too restrictive.” It’s also great for those growing out last season’s bob. But, avoid this cut if you have really thick hair that needs lots of layers. The Perfect Finish... Blow-dry hair smooth and curl the ends under for everyday chic. Tong it for evenings and texturise for a 70s’ rock-chick vibe. Plus it still has enough length for ponies and buns.

YOU ASKED Hair problems solved by our experts
I have suffered with dandruff since I can remember. I have tried all the high street brands and even some from the pharmacy – what can I do? Victoria, Primrose Hill The first thing I would do is check if you actually do have dandruff, which is a type of yeast-like fungus or a dry, irritated scalp. Lots of clients think they have dandruff when in fact their scalp is dry and itchy, which is causing the tell-tell white flakes. At our flagship salon in Mayfair we have a specialist Kérastase Scalp and Hair Scanner. Specialist analysis could help identify your problem and prescribe the correct treatment. Kérastase Bain Alish Gourley, Headmasters Baio-Recharge £24.00 Mayfair
I love Renée Zellweger’s cut and colour – what do I ask for in the salon? Katy, Maida Vale Bring a picture of the cut you like to make sure your stylist has a visual image of the look you want to achieve, so there is no confusion. Then ask for a short blunt bob, which is just long enough to be tucked behind the ears and is slightly tapered at the back. To get her clean blonde colour, opt for Completely Gorgeous, a colour treat exclusive to Headmasters, which blends highlights and a gloss for a gorgeous red carpet-worthy colour. Rogerio Sartini, Headmasters Paddington
I have long curly hair, which doesn’t really have a shape or style. I always just end up having a trim, but I would really like to have a smart, sexy style. What do you advise? Suzie, Manchester Ask your stylist for a bell-shaped shoulder length cut where the layers are long and starting midway down the neck (similar to Naomi Watts’ style above). This will give you a smooth look at the top with bounce and movement through the ends. Michelle Child, Headmasters Manchester
