My new hair cut by GMTV hairdresser


Hi there!

Thanks to all you generous viewers you've texted in to say how much you like my new hair do! I decided to have it coloured to near the shade it was when I was a teenager – much darker than of late – and it looks much glossier and healthy, so I'm happy.

My new hairdresser is Richard Ward, who is the resident GMTV hairdresser and has his salon just up the road from QVC. Mario did the colour and Richard cut it for me, but he refused to cut much off. I've always tended to keep it short – it's easier to do early morning when I'm rushing to get ready for the Morning Show, and I like it choppy and spikey. But Richard has persuaded me to try growing it, for a completely different look that will evolve over the next few months. I

'm not sure it will work for me, but I'm willing to try. I've given him till March, and he's agreed that if I don't like it then, he'll cut it all off for me!! Watch this space!

    Hi Kathy, saw you on t.v. yesterday and thought how great your hair looked. Do keep it longer, it makes you look 10 years younger and looks much more trendy.You looked lovely in your blue jacket. The combination of the new hair do and the smart clothes made you look very slim and elegant. Love Liz.

    Hi Kathy,
    Your new hair looks lovely. I think growing your alittle longer would look great….a chance to wear your hair up this summer with the lovely AB hair clips from QVC like kirks folly.
    I dye my hair with a home dye kit, I don’t like doing it. I had a nightmare last time I accidently dropped some dye in my dogs eye. I quickly washed it out with some luke warm water….thank goodness he is is ok now. I sooo wish QVC would sell hair dye especially a none chemical dye as they are so hard to find.
    Love reading your blogs
    Take care
    Love Susanna x

    Hi Liz
    Thanks so much. I’ve been sticking with the ‘grow-out’ situation for a while and think I’m just getting through it. And the jacket is new – I just loved the colour. Glad you do too!

    Hi Susanna. Your poor dog – I’m relieved he’s ok now. Were you trying to dye him as well?!! I’ll talk to our beauty buyers about whether we could consider bringing you natural hair dye. We used to do some colouring shampoos from Aveda but they’re not with us any more. Good idea though – thanks!

    Hi Kathy,
    Thanks for replying it has made my day!! It would be great if QVC did sell a none chemical hair dye. They sell so many lovely botanical skin products which are lovely but we end up putting harsh chemicals on our scalps like hydrogen peroxide.
    Love Susanna x

    I knew there was something different about you but I was not sure what. Yes the hair is much more youthful on you.You have such a pretty face and this style is much softer. Keep it up and dont go back to the old style you are stunning like this. Evelyn
