Somehow, the pixie crop manages to be both rebellious and classic at the same time. The style has been gracing A-list heads since Audrey Hepburn wore it in the film Roman Holiday in the 1950s. Best of all, it's as low-maintenance as it gets – just add a bit of gel for texture.
Rock the effortless French glamour look with a blunt bob. All you'll need is a Breton top and red lipstick and you'll look as though you're headed to the hippest bars on the French Riviera… OK, we're daydreaming again. To shake up this look, add a spritz of salt spray for Biarritz-style beach waves. (Yep – in our heads, we're soaking up the rays in southern France). More bobs this way.
Not the snappiest name, but this cut makes up for it in style. Soft layers add body and frame the face, so you'll look polished and pristine with just a little blowdrying. Simpler styles like this tend to suit the majority of us. Plus, they're easy to jazz up if you fancy a radical change – did someone say unicorn hair?
Also known as the 'long bob'. The name for this style may be new(ish), but the style itself has been gracing the hair of the glitterati for decades. Whether you wear it curled with hot rollers or go for bleached waves, the shoulder-length version of the classic bob is as versatile as it is low-maintenance. Tick, tick.
Refresh your look instantly by adding a blunt fringe. If your hair's long, play around with glamorous up-dos, and it's even more striking when it's worn down. Throw in some loose curls to give the style a feminine twist, or straighten for the kind of businesslike sophistication that would make your mum's eyes water with pride.

Like a fine bottle of Pinot Grigio, some things just better with age – fellas, this includes you. First up, going grey is nothing to fear, it’s just a way of life. There’s science behind it. Our hair is naturally coloured by melanin pigment, and as we age, the production of this pigment slows down. That means going grey will happen to all of us (unless balding strikes first), but your genetics will decide when. Whether you’re keen to cover it, or ready to style it out, here’s what we’d suggest.Read more
So maybe you’ve just cracked your Bikini from your Brazilian (before the wax was applied, I hope), but there’s a new term in town, and it’s worth getting to know. Strandlighting is the trend you’ve no-doubt been double-tapping on your Instagram feed without even knowing it, and the *au naturel* way to colour hair. It’s the newbie technique for effortless, sun-kissed colour that you’ve been trying to achieve since slathering on the Sun In ten years ago (praise be). So, what’s the deal?

The fade. You’ve probably heard of it. You’ve no doubt spotted it. Hey, you might even be sporting it (and not even realise). In brief, it’s an ‘aggressively tight’ tapered cut, kept super short at the sides and back, and ‘fading’ to any length up top (and, yep, it’s pretty much the cut of 2018). The undercut fade is a good one (on-trend, low maintenance, a crowd-pleaser – read: your chums on Instagram will no-doubt double tap). The cut keep lots of length up top before tapering to a thin fade at the sides, and is super versatile when styling; pompadour, slicked…View the board
