Grazia Health & Beauty (March 28 2011) – “Digital perm anyone?”



hI-tECH new hair treatments to give your spring hair style some added oomph!

Words by Lauren Murdoch Smith








The All New Permanent Blow Dry – Do it if – Without a blow dry, your hair is hard to keep in check and demands a serious amount of styling product. Straight, shiny and kink free is your pleasure —–>










Dip-Dyeing into Summer – Do it if – You’re a colour trialler and love a change with the new season. Experiment with pink, purple and blue and keep your roots light. Check out hot new model Charlotte Free – and of course, Gaga – for inspiration —–>









The Digital Perm – Do it if – Tousled waves are top of your wish list but body building doesn’t come easily to your hair. You’ll be pleased to know the digital perm adds guts to any hair type —–>









The Cherry Wash – Do it if – You’re a red head looking for a boost or you’re stuck in a colour rut —–>





Which one are YOU going to try this spring?!
