10 Hairstyles for 2010

The Edgy Bob

Getting a highly styled but classic cut is a great confidence boost and can make you look younger. Add height and volume to this look by adding a little mousse and drying over a round brush.

The Side Parting

A centre parting can really drag the face down, especially when you are over 40. Soften your look with a side-swept parting. Make sure you look after your hair and blow-dry it with care to get that really luxe look.

Long Curls

If your hair is naturally curly, it's most probably frizzy too. Beat the frizz by spending a few minutes on your style every day - and you'll notice the difference. Keep hair well-conditioned with weekly intensive at-home treatments and make sure to use products that relax stressed out hair, like serums and creams. And our last curly hair rule? Never blow-dry - always let your hair dry naturally.

The Bold Redhead

Need a big style change? Then start with your hair. If you're feeling bold, go for a striking red. A deep scarlet colour will have an energising effect on skin that looks jaded. Wear it bright, vibrant and with confidence.

The Heavy Fringe

Forget drastic measures like botox to hide those wrinkles and opt for a fringe instead. A blunt cut is still big news this season and is best worn just below the eyebrows to draw attention to your eyes. Keep it heavy for a more youthful look.

The New Warm Colour

As we age, we need to adjust our hair colour to flatter our changing looks. Add warmer tones, such as reds, coppers and golds, through your hair to add a flush of colour to your cheeks. Red tones are a great way to break up a solid brown shade, or to conceal grey hairs appearing on darker locks.

The Romantic Curl

Romantic styles are back in vogue and were all over the spring/summer catwalks. adapt the style to your hair with some soft, pretty waves. This style will work best on medium to long hair, so the weight will keep the curls loose for a more relaxed, boho vibe. To achieve these girls, wind hair around one inch curling barrels and hold. Let go, and spritz with hairspray to help keep the curl in shape.

The 60s Bob

This kind of short layered hairstyle is a great way of adding volume to fine hair. The angled fringe is also flattering to most face shapes and will act as a frame for delicate features. Short crops are best suited to very straight hair, unless you're willing to spend lots of time on it each morning!

The Red Pixie Crop

Be brave and go for the chop the next time you visit the hairdressers - but only if you have the right face shape. A pixie crop works best on an oval face and if it's too severe, can be quite unforgiving. So, remember to request soft with layers around the face and choosing a red colour tint will give the look warmth.

The Asymmetric Bob

A bob is always a savvy option for summer, keeping you cool when the temperatures rise. And, of course, shorter hairstyles are often a great way of rolling back the years too. This classic style is given a modern twist with a side sweep and choppy layers.
