The haircut that works on everyone

Are you brave enough to go for the chop? I did it and it feels oh-so-good.

The lob was last year’s tour de force haircut – from January Jones’s side-swept waves to Beyoncé’s beachy ombré, everyone has been seen rocking this trend. The perfect haircut that you can get whether you have dark, blonde,  red or brunette hair, it will frame your face and make your cheekbones pop.

A shorter hairstyle can seem intimidating at first, but trust me, once you go for a lob, you may feel you never want to return to longer hair.

I went for a short layered lob last year in September (see the photos here) and I loved it. I look after my hair a lot and I cut a few inches every three months to keep it healthy.

I always try and stick to one stylist, but sometimes can be difficult, especially when travelling. I’ve recently discovered Brooks and Brooks, a chic multi-award-winning salon in Bloomsbury (three times London Hairdresser of the Year). I tried this salon based on a recommendation from a friend and I’m very pleased to say it was worth it!

The hairdresser did an incredible job cutting my hair and gave me some very helpful tips on how to style it day to day and what products would be best. The narrow salon is sleek and simple, and there’s not even a whiff of pretension among the talented hairdressers and colourists.

All in one I loved my Brooks and Brooks experience and will be returning for another lob cut.
