1. It's all about the fringe
From short crops to sharp bobs, there's no better time to lop off your hair. However, we've uncovered something less radical but equally impressive. From above-the-brow to eye skimming, this season's fringe is a fresh, anti-ageing way to update your look without losing length, and we say it's a smart way to go. Blow-dry sleek or give your fringe some texture with Aussie Uplift Your Hair Hairspray RRP £3.99.
2. Mix up your hair texture
Welcome news for busy on-the-go types, the new thing in hair is to mix up your hair texture. So, here's what we mean; Take your hair dryer to one section of your hair, such as the area framing your face, smoothing it to glossy perfection. Then, leave the rest to dry naturally with a little texturizing spray. Going for a fringe? Leave it wavy, and blow-dry the lengths to a sleek finish. Whatever your style, leave something a little bit un-done. We recommend: Aussie Mega Detangler Spray RRP £4.99.
3. Embrace wearing lipstick
Investing in a proper old-school lipstick is the quickest way to upgrade your makeup spec. We say opt for a moisturising matte texture as this always looks more sophisticated than a shimmering finish. As for colour, we recommend trying a rich berry or a warm brick tone, as both appear to give the skin and teeth a boost.
4. Pamper your body
Glowing skin doesn't stop at your face; the most youthful among us take care of the skin on their limbs too. With central heating and colder temperatures looming, skin - on legs especially - can get dehydrated quickly so switch your body lotion for a rich body butter or an oil. For super smooth results, switch your razor for an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) system. We recommend Braun Silk-Expert IPL Special Beauty Edition RRP £399.99.
