If there’s one thing guaranteed to make you look younger, it’s gorgeous hair, which Julia has in abundance. Her bombshell mane has taken on many guises over the years, but she never does anything too drastic, always ensuring her style is timeless and suits both her hair-type and face-shape. She gives the credit to Hollywood hair god Serge normant, saying, ‘I learnt how to do my hair, which just came from years of watching a master – I can’t do it as well as he does it, but I can try.’ 10 years younger tip: get yourself a hairdresser you trust, don’t get stuck in a rut (but don’t follow trends you know won’t suit you) and treat hair with care. Regular trims, good products and a break from the ghds once in a while will repay you with a shed-load of ‘You look amazing’ compliments.
