Lush, long, shiny locks re­sem­bling Kate Mid­dle­ton and Kim Sears (Google her, she’s mar­ried to ten­nis player Andy Mur­ray and has amaz­ingly bouncy hair) was the brief I gave my hair­dresser Bec to repli­cate for my own mane at the start of the year.

Months later, my ne­glected hair was look­ing ratty. Feel­ing slightly em­bar­rassed I’d let it go, I booked in for a cut and blow-dry at Verve.

Upon ar­riv­ing at the salon, I be­gan to re­lax the mo­ment the friendly trainee hair­dresser started wash­ing my hair and mas­sag­ing my head us­ing scrump­tious smelling L’Oreal prod­ucts.

By the time she’d fin­ished and of­fered me a com­pli­men­tary cof­fee, Bec was ready to start the trans­for­ma­tion.

With years of ex­pe­ri­ence, it was ob­vi­ous she knew what she was do­ing. She ef­fort­lessly snipped here and there and be­fore I knew it was ask­ing me how I’d like my hair to be styled.

In­stead of the usual blow-dry, Bec styled one side of my hair into soft curls by blow-dry­ing and then us­ing a GHD, while the other side was slicked back and pinned in place be­hind my ear. The end re­sult was pretty and fem­i­nine, an ideal do for a wed­ding, cock­tail party or en­gage­ment.

As I left, Bec in­formed me my hair was look­ing much health­ier. So, maybe with a bit of TLC, I re­ally will get those Kate Mid­dle­ton locks af­ter all. THE TREAT­MENT Cut and blow-dry $85 WHERE Verve Hair, 130 Be­lair Rd, Hawthorn, 8271 5299
