All you need to know about growing and maintaining healthy, shiny hair, plus celebrity photos for your hairstyle inspiration.


Anyone who was born with naturally curly hair knows that it can be both a blessing and a curse. Because it essentially grows in a zigzag formation, it takes longer to attain a certain length than it would if it were straight. It is also prone to dryness, and on humid days it seems like there's nothing you can do to keep it under control! But on the plus side, it's a look that is highly sought-after and can be absolutely stunning if you know how to style it properly.

Hint: She's usually a brunette, but has been dyeing her hair blonde of late.

The 'new balayage'

June 2nd 2014 09:20
GHST readers, allow me to introduce you to the hair colouring technique that's being dubbed the 'new balayage'. Known as 'smudging', it's pretty much as it sounds: it has a softer feel than ombre, while still providing that sexy, graduated colour fade-out that we all know and love.

It's been featured on the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks of Balenciaga, Max Mara, Gucci, Rag & Bone, and Salvatore Ferragamo, to name but a few. Harper's Bazaar has called it one of the 'Hottest Spring Hairstyles' for 2014. But as for me? I'm calling BS!

How often should I brush my hair?

May 13th 2014 20:30
Way back in the days of old, women were told that they should brush their hair 100 times daily in order to keep it in good condition. In fact, doing this will cause excess breakage to the hair shaft and is not at all recommended.

When it comes to frequency of hair brushing, less is more!

Remember back in 2010 when all the cool kids were dyeing their hair a silvery grey? (No? Then may this pretty pink link refresh your memory). Well, it seems that there's something of a silver resurgence going on in the fashion world, and I, for one, am loving it.
