Is turning up with that picture of Jennifer Aniston actually helpful? What should you really be doing to protect your hair between cuts? Hairdressers confess all.
Knowing a few insider secrets will help you get the most out of every salon visit – we’ve asked hairdressers the hard questions so you don’t have to…
