It is with firm beauty con­vic­tion that we be­lieve a good hair­cut makes the dif­fer­ence be­tween look­ing like you’ve got your life sorted and look­ing like things are about to fall apart at any given mo­ment. Add the per­fect hair colour into the win­ning-at-life mix, and you should have just about ev­ery­thing you need to look – and feel – good just about all the time.

In a world where we spend days work­ing to­wards in­di­vid­ual ver­sions of our “dream job”, quickly get over the men who don’t quite meet the bench­mark we de­serve, and pick and choose our friends based on the very high­est stan­dard of qual­i­ties, it makes to­tal sense for us to aim high on the hair scale.

Be­fore your next ap­point­ment, con­sider the new sea­son colour trends, and get ready for a change. While blondes need to embrace the warmer hues of caramel and honey, brunettes should be play­ing with mul­ber­ries – leav­ing the nat­u­ral red­heads to ex­per­i­ment with bold shades of cop­per. If your colour woes are more about cov­er­ing some sil­ver, choose a per­ma­nent hair colour to master your­self at home.
