SLEEK & SEXY UPDOs WE WANT THEIR HAIR
Sienna Miller, Sofía Vegara and Jessica Alba. BECAUSE Up-dos are the answer to all sorts of hair mares, from disguising greasy roots to hair-not-doingwhat-you-want-it-to situations. An up-do works better on second-day hair and is an easy way to add instant glamour for any occasion, in whatever guise, from braids and buns to slick ponytails – it’s why they’re an A-list fave! Try this simple ponytail update (below); after pulling your hair into a ponytail, wrap a strand of hair around the elastic and pin securely with a bobby pin – minimum effort, maximum impact.

INSIDER SECRET ‘What’s great about an up-do, as seen on Sienna and co., is how it accentuates the jawline and cheekbones, drawing the eye upwards. ‘This creates an effortlessly youthful look, which naturally has great anti-ageing perks,’ says hair stylist Peter Burkill.

‘It’s easy to go overboard with the hairspray so, if you’re worried your up-do will look too stiff, rather spray your bobby pins with hairspray for added grip
SHINE BRIGHT WE WANT THEIR HAIR
Tyra Banks, Kate Winslet and Gabrielle Union. BECAUSE No matter what your hair length or texture, a shared goal is healthy-looking, shiny locks. And this season it’s all about killer gloss shining brightly on poker straight hair (worn with a plum lip). Such a sleek surface your roots touched up and tame those sticky-up frizzes – your ghds should sort them out. INSIDER SECRET ‘Invest in a good masque and leave on for 15 minutes twice a week to keep the moisture levels up,’ says celeb hairdresser Aaron Carlo. POWER OF THREE Wella Instant Conditioner, R239.

ALL HAIL THE BOB WE WANT THEIR HAIR
Taraji P. Henson, Adele and Emma Stone. BECAUSE There was a time when shorter hair was considered a redcarpet no-no. But we’ve been raising the virtues of a bob (anti-ageing, versatile, low maintenance) and now it seems celebs have cottoned on, too. INSIDER SECRET ‘Long bobs that sit just above the shoulders are great for squarer face shapes as it softens experiment with your colour – freehand streaks scattered throughout the length help add extra movement and interest, making it look thicker,’ says hairdresser Rae Palmer.
