What’s your new season coat style?

Everyone’s talking about... What’s your new season coat style?

Your new winter coat doesn’t just keep you cosy on chilly days: it sets the tone for your whole season’s look. So why not match it with the perfect hairstyle?

Our top 4 women’s coat picks and the hair styles to match.

The Black Luxe Parka, Wallis, RRP £90

How to wear it: Worn with your woolies or over a sparkly dress, the parka jacket is a seasonal classic that’s wonderfully versatile. Wallis Senior Designer Sital Mehta says: “The current direction in women’s coats is all about looking more relaxed. This parka is effortlessly easy to wear and ticks all the boxes from day to night!” Tall, statuesque types will carry off this glam parka with confidence.

Work it with this hair style: Sleek, glossy locks complement this relaxed vibe of this parka, creating a sophisticated contrast. Try a strong centre parting with straight glossy hair for a touch of definition. A spritz of Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Hairspray will add a glamorous, glossy finish to perfect the look.

Brown straight hair

The Khaki Asymmetric Zip Biker Coat, Wallis, RRP £69

How to wear it: This sleek, simple coat with an elegant long cut can handle any look from glam to grunge, so it’s perfect for just throwing on for the school run or adding an edgy touch to an evening ensemble. “Our khaki biker coat suits all body shapes with its contemporary ‘fit to flatter’ design,” says Mehta. The hip-skimming length helps to slim and sculpt your figure.

Work it with this hair style: Loose curls offset the clean lines of this coat perfectly, so whether your style is glam or grunge, aim for texture and volume in the hair. Use thin barrel tongs and work through the underside of your hair in small sections to create tight curls. Lightly mist with a hairspray such as Pantene Pro-V Perfect Volume Hairspray before brushing out, to soften the curls and bring out the volume. Finish with a strong spritz of hairspray to fix the style.

Brown curly hair

The Stone Funnel Coat, Wallis, RRP £65

How to wear it: This sleek tailored coat is the business: wear it to add polish to your office look or just enjoy how the nipped-in waist and high neckline helps every body type to look slender and elegant. “Inspired by the future, the architectural lines and minimalist shape will flatter and elongate the body,” says Mehta.

Work it with this hair style: Tucked-in hair was a big trend on the autumn/winter catwalks and perfectly showcases the funnel neckline of this coat. It’s a modern, nonchalant vibe that contrasts with the coat’s structured style, and it’s so easy to style. Just apply a touch of Pantene Pro-V Natural Curls Mousse to damp hair and blow dry for a gorgeous, bouncy look. Then tuck it into your coat and you’re good to go!

Medium ash blonde hair

The Short Black Shearling Coat, Wallis, RRP £75

How to wear it: This is all about warmth and luxury in a sophisticated modern style. The mid-length cut is perfect for flattering wider waistlines: it’s short enough to show off your curves and has enough length to slim your mid-section. “This shearling jacket provides an instant update to every woman’s wardrobe. The relaxed shape will skim the body and add a modern twist to your autumn/winter look,” Mehta says.

Work it with this hair style: This casual yet polished style perfectly suits the effortless elegance of a ponytail. Go for a sleek tied-back ponytail to bring a touch of glamour to this look. Mist your hair with Pantene Pro-V Protect & Style Hairspray before straightening it with tongs. Then tie it back into a high ponytail just above the nape of the neck before adding a final spritz of Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Hairspray to catch those flyaway hairs and complete your glossy, elegant look.

The Silk-expert is a delight


My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
