One of the latest hairstyle trends to hit the headlines is the Ombre effect, sometimes also referred to as ‘dip dyeing’. Spotted on celebrities from Ashlee Simpson to Rachel Bilson, this look has really caught on quickly and I am wondering whether to try it out myself.
The ombre effect can be either subtle or strong, and works well on many different hair colours. It is a versatile trend with a natural and rustic appeal to it, and it is much easier to maintain than regular dyeing. You don’t need to worry about your roots growing out, and also it is less damaging to the hair in the long-term as it can easily be trimmed out. I am very tempted to give it a go…so what do you think? Would you try it yourselves too?
There is something about a braided hairstyle that I find so versatile and ladylike. It can easily go from elegant and classic, to modern and cutting-edge, and can be worn as an everyday or evening look. You will see everyone from celebrities to children sporting pretty plaits, and there are so many different types and styles you can experiment with. We even used braids in a number of the catwalk looks at our London Fashion Week show in September.
Here are some of my favourite beautiful braided hairstyles – why not try them out to change up your look!
