Round the twist

The London Lassie gets ready to embrace twirled tresses…

Caught in a summer shower last weekend my straight, sleek hair was devilishly transformed into a mop of frizz. Nevertheless, despite thinking I looked like a novelty dish washing brush, I got loads of compliments (and a few free drinks).

Summer was all about sleek locks and the slicked back look, but with more rain to come our way this autumn it seems designers have prepared us for this twist of fate as kinky manes are set to cause a storm!

One of the best hair looks from the AW13 catwalks has to be that of the Just Cavalli show. Roberto Cavalli coveted deep, defined crimps and waves. To get this look, plait damp hair and leave to dry. Then unravel twisted tresses. Easy!

Cannes goes braid crazy!

The London Lassie is loving wonderful weaving on the red carpet…

The hair trend on the red carpet at Cannes this year was almost definitely plaits. Woven by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Nicole Kidman, Olivia Palermo and our Cheryl – it’s clear this style coveted by little girls has been grasped by the hands of the world’s top stylists.

To get the on-trend superstar look simply weave an effortless messy French plait, secure with a Cheryl and Nicole inspired black ribbon and wait for the compliments to stream in…
