Last week I had the pleasure of having my hair done at a top London salon (for the second time!). We've all been given the opportunity to have our tresses trimmed by Richard Ward, whose salon is just up the road from the QVC studios.
Having my hair cut in luxury
You may know Richard – you'll have seen him on GMTV as he's their resident hairdresser and often appears on air. He's also been the subject of several celebrity features for magazines. (In fact, my photographer husband, Alan Olley, did the pictures for a Hello! shoot, which showed Richard and his wife in their stylish Fulham home.)
I usually go to a modern salon in my local village, which I've always been very happy with. But when you're treated to outrageously comfortable massaging chairs while your hair is washed, you begin to realise how the other half live!
My new longer length
I first went to Richard in November, and he felt it was time for a change. But my hair was fairly short so there wasn't much he could do by cutting, so he advised me to try growing it. He wants me to lose the short layers. I'm not convinced it will suit me – I've always had my hair short on top so that I can stick it up with a bit of gel to give it some height – but I'm willing to try.
It will also depend on how long it takes me to make myself look presentable in the morning. With time at a premium before The Morning Show, I've already been spotted in our production meeting modelling large curlers!
Anyway, I expect I'll have it all cut off before long, but in the meantime, you'll be seeing me with longer locks. I'd better check out the QVC website for our new GHD range of styling tools to help me look my best!
