Well well well, 10 years after the ‘Rachel’, Jennifer Aniston is still the hair pin up of our generation. In a recent survey of 3000 women it’s been revealed that women will change their hair as often as 100 times during their lifetime. With hairdresser Andrew Collinge, who commissioned the report, citing Jennifer Aniston’s little and often approach as the most popular. ‘My feeling is that women are changing their looks little and often rather than dramatic changes,’ points out Collinge. ‘For example, you can add modern texture without altering the length just by adding some layers or by drying and styling differently – think Jennifer Aniston.
Grazia insider and Alexa Chung’s hair stylist George Norwood agrees. He says that he changes his client’s hair subtly every visit, so they never feel like they’ve been restyled. ‘If you stick to a cut that suits you, it’s best to tweak it at every visit. That way you never get stuck in a rut and you’re gradually keeping up with the times.’ He adds, ’it takes as little as a fringe there, a few invisible layers there and before you know it you’ve transformed your style from long to mid-length without the shock of doing it in one go.’
The report, by hairdresser Andrew Collinge (funny that..) cements what we’ve known all along, that your hair is your biggest fashion accessory. ‘The impact of trends from the catwalk or celebrities inspiring women to change their hair in the same way they adopt a fashion trend.
