Top Ten Hair Tips From The Industry Pro's - Charles Worthington, Josh Wood & Adam Reed

We love an insider tip, be it the best hidden gem cleanser, how to apply a cream blusher or the easiest way to stop hair looking dull. We’re always on the lookout for new things and love sharing them with you lot. This week we’ve been speaking to ten of the industry’s best hair stylist and hairdressers to ask them what their No.1 hair tip is. We’re loving the answers we got…

"If you have blonde hair and it turns green after excessive swimming, crush 12 aspirin into a jug of warm water then rinse your hair with it, soaking the ends thoroughly. This will remove the green and return your hair to blonde."

-Jo Hansford, Jo Hansford

"I like to use dry shampoo as a styling product as well as to take away grease – it gives a great matte texture to hair and can create that undone bed-head look within seconds. I always do this to Sienna Miller’s hair on shoots and it works a treat."

-Luke Hersheson, Hersheson’s

"If planning an all-over hair colour try not to wash your hair on the day you plan to colour it. This allows the natural oils on the scalp to help protect against sensitivity to the chemicals in the tint."

-Maleeka Taher, Four London

"When I'm creating Elle Macpherson's surfer blonde locks I always use a combination of foil and balayage to de-regulate the way the colour falls and make it look more natural. Keeping colour at its freshest is one of the most important factors to me and I always recommend using Wella Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner."

-Josh Wood, Josh Wood Atelier 

"Make sure your hair is soaked with fresh water before going into the sea or a swimming pool.  The fresh water limits how much salt water and chlorine can be absorbed and therefore creates an invisible barrier, preventing large amounts being absorbed into the hair."

-Chelm Rox, Hari’s Salon

"If you suffer from a sensitive scalp when colouring your hair, my father Daniel Galvin discovered years ago that adding a couple of sachets of Sweet ‘n’ Low (in the powder form) to your colour mix helps to stop sensitivity."

-Louise Galvin, Louise Galvin

"I did a great technique on Gwyneth Paltrow recently for a shoot which is perfect for those who don’t want to have hair extensions, nor have the time to put them in but want to add some instant extra length or volume. This comes in the form of a half wig which is easy to fit and makes such a difference. All you have to do is match the colour to your hair and then fit along the back of the head, covering the crown down to the nape. Then you blend into your hair and you’re good to go. Try Hairaisers or American Dream or check out the WAM Speed Wefts."

-Neil Moodie, Windle & Moodie 

"Tousled hair looks great in the evening, and you don’t necessarily have to use styling appliances (especially if you are in a warm, humid climate).  Twist chunks of hair around your finger and hold with grips near the scalp, leaving them in while you get ready.  The head in the air will be enough to dry your hair and give it some texture, so when you take out the grips you will end up with a relaxed evening look."

-Charles Worthington, The House of Charles Worthington

"For blond hair that has gone green from chlorine or salt water, shampoo your hair as normal, then rinse Tomato Ketchup through your hair and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Then give your hair a really good shampoo and treat the hair with a rehydrating mask such as Percy & Reed Totally TLC Masque. The red tones and the acid from the vinegar helps to neutralise the green!"

 -Adam Reed, Percy & Reed

"A great tip I often tell clients which I did on Anne Hathaway's hair for the premiere of One Day is to use Shu Uemura Liquid Fabric to create a soft modern 1940's wave. It’s so easy to use and works on most hair types – it’s my failsafe hair hero!"

-Stephen Low, Neville Hair & Beauty

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    Waste oil collector struggles after STOMP posts, receives help from kind souls

    After being photographed at work in Jurong pooling used oil near coffee shops, 50-year-old Valerie Sim has been struggling to keep her family afloat. Web portals STOMP and The Real Singapore published pictures of her in February, triggering a witch hunt for others like her and comments from readers like “Who knows if they’ll use it as cooking oil?” Some readers also said they filed police reports against her and other people they believed were doing the same thing she was.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
