    Big, backcombed hair

    Big, backcombed hair

    This glamorous style has been seen on Sarah Jessica Parker and Cheryl Cole, and works well with this season's seventies trend.

    Tip: Take the hair above the crown of your head and backcomb (always start about 3cm from the root). Make sure you hold you hair upwards as you work the comb downwards and use a styling product (we like Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle) to spray along the sections. For longer hair, finish the ends with curling tongs to add more bounce and volume.

    Retro blonde bob

    Retro blonde bob

    This modern take on a retro style is perfect for a glamorous holiday look.

    Tip: "Apply a volumising serum such as OSiS Body Me evenly through damp hair, divide the hair into sections and blow-dry with a medium to large round brush, ensuring the front sections are blow dried in the opposite direction to flick out. To complete the look, apply large heated rollers to add height and body then backcomb at the root for maximum volume."

    According to leading hairstylist Duffy, the grown-out bob is the hottest hair length this season. At Charles Anastase, models wore hair just grazing the shoulders, with a loose schoolgirl fringe adding to the relaxed look.
