cutting will help to soften an angular shaped face. Lots
of layers and finger drying with gel adds texture.
- A central
parting with hair sweeping gently away from the face will
soften a square face.
oval face allows freedom of choice. If you are lucky enough
to have this face shape experiment freely - most styles
shaped faces look beautiful framed with long, loose curls
around the jawline - a wispy fringe will disguise an overly
- A short
cut with width around the ears will even out a long face.
Best worn with a fringe to shorten the face.
off centre parting is always more flattering to a round
face - avoid round bobs which finish at jawline as these
will accentuate full cheeks.
YOUR HAIR PROPERLY
Curls Grab handfuls of hair and scrunch gently in your fingers
as you dry. Always use a diffuser attachment for best results.
and Sleek Dry small sections of hair at a time rolling the
brush from roots to ends. Always keep the nozzle of the dryer
pointing down the hair shaft to keep cuticle smooth.
Lift Move your fingertips in small circles at the roots
only as you dry. This encourages lift, especially for lank hair.
Over Volume Choose a round brush with a metal barrel to
mould your hair. Pull sections of hair away from your scalp
as you dry. Hold each section until cool and spritz with hairspray
to maintain body.
DID YOU KNOW - that a gentle
10 minute scalp massage improves the circulation to
the hair follicles and stimulates natural oils to
make hair shiny. Use all ten fingers in tiny circles
from crown to nape. Then pressing gently 'move' scalp
backwards and forwards towards then away from forehead.
Can be great to beat stress after a hard day to eliminate
that 'tight scalp' feeling.

- Warm wax with a hairdryer while still in the tub then
run your fingers around the top of the wax and rub onto
your hands. Apply just a fine film - too much will make
hair to heavy and it will appear lank.
- Apply a big ball of mousse to the palm of the hand,
then take small amounts with your fingertips and smear in
panels across the head and underneath towards the front
of the hair. Always comb through to the ends whatever the
desired style. Gently squeeze curl into the hair - the warmth
of your hand as well as the dryer will help you to put movement
into your hair as you dry it. Once hair is dry shake hair
at the roots with your fingers. Mousse is best used on wet
hair as it can make dry hair sticky and hard to the touch.
- Smear a little onto fingertips then massage into roots,
aim hairdryer at roots when drying. Gel can be used to tame
flyaway ends after drying - put gel on fingertips and 'pinch'
Re-Activator - Best sprayed onto hands first then place
hands where you want the curls to be and gently scrunch.
