Fringe Benefits


We knew it would take off as soon as Kate Moss was snapped with a full fringe last year. Fringes are set to stay popular this spring and moving into summer. Whether it is full one, short or cut to the side.

The real benefit of fringes is they can easily be pinned back with some trendy clips or a chunky hairbands, which is all hot this season.


A Curls Best Friend


Un-plug those straightners girls as curls as set to be huge this spring/summer. Inspired by Keely Hawes 80s perm in TV show Ashes to Ashes and other celebrities following suit. However summer is not the time to go experimenting with a perm unless you have very fine hair. The great thing about curls is there is so many ways to wear them! Loose, big, corkscrew or beach wavesall will ensure youre bang on trend.

Creative Up-dos


Spring/summer 08 is the season to get your creative head on.

Braid, plait, twist, and curl your hair, adding an exciting twist to standard ponytails and up-dos. To make it even more interesting get some contrasting highlights through your hair. Theyll really make a difference in styles with plaits and twists. Big hair, you are beautiful


Amy Winehouse started it, and since, big hairs had many followers, Natasha Bedingfield, Nicola from Girls aloud and its been all over the catwalks. Add volume with a beehive, rollers or simply by blow-drying your hair upside down.

Whatever style you choose; make it big, bold and beautiful.

Blonde Bombshell


This season, just like the clothes on our backs, hair color is all about being bright, bold and luxurious. Expensive looking colors are hot right nowsuch as honeys, golds and ice white blondes that are shiny and vibrant are set to be everywhere, this 2008.White blonde is a celebrity favorite (think pixie Geldof and Agyness Deyn) but its not for everyone, so ask your stylist for advice before you take the plunge.

Pixie Crop


Weather reports tell us the good news that the British summer is set to be warm, which makes the pixie crop perfect.

Celebrities have gradually been getting shorter and shorter the further into 2008 we go. Katie Homes and are great examples of how short, masculine hair can look effortlessly sexy.

Again be careful when going this short, it doesnt suit all face shapes, round faces be warned.
