Laura, 24, from Sydney, has been living in London for over two years and has clearly adjusted well to the weather. ‘I’ve recently changed my look again,’ she says. ‘It used to be florescent pink and purple. It’s a lot of maintenance and hard work, but it’s worth it.’ She bleaches and recolours her hair every week with La Riche Directions hair colour to keep the look vibrant.

Nothing wrong with using imagery to get the image you’re after; good on ya, Naomi!
Twenty-three-year-old David has been inspired by the quiff of 1950s when it comes to his new style, after recently making the decision to dress his bonce in something different than his former ‘frizzy and relaxed’ – as he calls it – hairdo. To achieve this more defined and simply gorgeous look, a world away from his former do, David says he uses hair wax and straighteners, although ‘I don’t use a particular brand, just which ever is cheap at the time.’ If it works…
