ppearance counts. There’s nothing new or ground-breaking about that, but what’s interesting is how it is translating to the salon floor, particularly in the current economic climate. There is a definite trend towards brunette, with many returning to their roots in a bid to be taken more seriously in the workplace – see p10–11 for some Katie Holmes style inspiration. Also, there has been a rise in regular salon blow-dries, as savvy women book in for their weekly blow-out to always look the part – see our seven pages (p14–22) of the most beautiful blow-dries on the high street. And don’t forget to enter our competition for a serious piece of arm candy!

MUSE OF THE SEASON
Jonathan Soons from the Headmasters Pro Session Team hails Lauren Hutton (pictured) as the muse of the season! Her mix of urban and western style made her a seventies icon who oozed effortless style. She also favoured nude toned and natural look make-up which just happens to be the perfect direction for this spring/summer. To channel her trademark hair, Jonathan advises to: “Keep hair onelength and add some seamless texture for volume. Sprinkle lighter highlights around the face with ultra-ﬁne ones at the sides, and keep the blow-dry minimal with just a little static (very now – see Gucci Spring/Summer). It looks hot on mid-length to long hair.” Team it with aviators, rolled up sleeves and some devil-may-care attitude. www.hmhair.co.uk
>> Quiffs, or as they are known in fashion circles, pompadours, are back, and with a nod to the eighties they are giving us some much needed glamour. They can be worn with hair up or down, big or small – they are versatile and sooo this season!
Fashion fell back in love with the updo for Spring/Summer ’09, with everything from ballerina buns and perfect chignons to French pleats and twin rolls. The key to making them oh-so-now is to give them a slightly rougher, modern edge. Headmasters has picked its favourite updos from the runways for its ’09 Blow-dry Collection.

Quiffs, updos, long and loose.... Glamour rules the runways
>> For those who like it long and loose, hair for spring/summer is subtly styled. It just has to be super-healthy and silky – for a little extra help here, book in for a hair restorative ritual at Headmasters salons. Mason Pearson brushes, Velcro rollers and ceramic tongs are all must-have tools to pull off the un-fussy, well-groomed look. Alternatively, book in for The Kiki blow-dry at Headmasters for runway-ready hair instantly. AQUASCUTUM
>> Looking forward, Headmasters own Herman Ho worked backstage at the Autumn/Winter shows 09/10 and he advises to: “Invest in some hair accessories, they will see you right though winter. I loved the scarves from Aquascutum A/W show.”

TREND WE LOVE Super-chic bevel bobs
atie Holmes has transformed herself from the mild, meek girl-nextdoor into the seriously stylish Mrs Cruise with the most adorable mini-me and an enviable acting career to boot. Please note that, to shed her Dawson’s Creek geek, she cut off her pretty but plain hair and adopted a chic, fashionable bob. Headmasters Jonathan Soons and Herman Ho give us the inside track to see if it could work for you…
IT’S RIGHT FOR YOU IF…
WHAT TO ASK FOR…
Jonathan says: “Firstly, bring a photo from this page to your appointment. Ask your stylist for a bevel bob. Keep the length an inch below your chin-line, because once the texture is cut in the bob will lift slightly and nicely frame your jaw-line. Texture around the base is essential to avoid your cut looking like last season’s A-line bob.”
“This modernised bob is a step up from the classic bob, and it suits most people, whether young or mature, classic or seriously fashionable – see the Mui Mui 09 campaign! This bob can be whatever you want it to be – young, fresh, sleek or soft. To make it work for you, adjust the length to flatter your face shape or add a fringe to make it less round. Make sure you discuss your options with your stylist.”
THE MAINTENANCE “A bob is super-easy to look after; always blow-dry your hair with a bit of movement at the ends for a softer look. To glam it up for evening, book in for the Coco blow-dry at Headmasters.”
THE COLOUR Herman says: “With a strong shape like a bob, always go for a softer colour. Book in for a seriously shiny glossing with some lighter slices, just a shade or two lighter than your base colour – keep them away from your parting for a pretty multi-tonal shade.”

L’Oréal Texture Expert Lumicontrôle £15.75
STYLING Herman says: “In the morning add a little L’Oréal Tecni. art Volume Architect for a little root lift and L’Oréal Tecni.art Fix blow-dry using a round bristle brush and Anti-Frizz £8.50 keep a bit of movement on the ends by just blow-drying them using your fingers instead of brush. Shake out your blow-dry whilst spraying L’Oréal Tecni.art Fix AntiFrizz into the hair for an undone finish. For a little evening glamour, blowdry using Kérastase Nectar Thermique for the smoothest, shiniest blow-out. Then use L’Oréal Texture Expert Lumicontrôle defining polish to finish.” www.hmhair.co.uk

THE BERGDORF BELLE This blow-out works at any age; wear it smoother for a more luxe edge, or with a little texture for a younger, fresher feel. Product: Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Daily Boost, ÂŁ11.50 16
THE ULTIMATE, CHIC, REDCARPET HAIR
THE COCO This is the ultimate, chic, red-carpet hair, with a slight forties feel but much looser than a set. Product: Paul Mitchell Heat Seal, ÂŁ10.25 www.hmhair.co.uk

Hair problems solved by our experts
Why does messy hair on celebs looks so cool but when I try it, I look more dishevelled mess than cool scene-girl?
Messy hair looks great on celebs but it actually takes a lot of styling to achieve. Apply L’Oréal Play Ball Texture Tonic to damp hair and blow-dry. Tip your hair upside down and spray again and tease into place. Add some eyeliner or a bright lip to ramp up the attitude so people know you are rocking this look. Contrast it with a chic ensemble to really pull it off (it’s a Miss Moss favourite).
MESSY HAIR + CHIC ENSEMBLE = FASHION ICON
L’Oréal Play Ball
I love Taylor Texture Tonic, £11 Momsen’s hair cut – what do I ask for in the salon?
The reason her cut looks super-cool is because of its rebel girl colour. Nothing says ‘look at me!’ more than platinum blonde; it adds extra cool to edgy cuts. Request a very light blonde all over, with highlights between to add texture, plus a pearlescent varnish to finish. This colour takes commitment, but a inch or two of re-growth can add to the rockchick look if worn with the right attitude. To get the cut right, ask your stylist to cut an eye-lash-skimming fringe, which arks around the face. The layers need to be really cut into, so the style is easy to play with. This cut is not about height or body, it’s about achieving day-after texture, so product is important. Try Redken Rough Paste 12 Working Material. www.hmhair.co.uk
