The reader: Tamara Skelton, 37, from Lancashire

The problem: Mum of three Tamara has been cutting and colouring her own hair for the past year to save time but it has become dry, frizzy and in need of a makeover.

The solution: Our team created a blunt jaw-length cut that would flatter Tamara’s elfin features and snipped in a blunt fringe for an eye-enhancing effect.


Step 1. We put warmth back into Tamara’s hair with golden slices and an all-over espresso shade. Try Garnier Olia Hair Colour in 4.0 Dark Brown, £6.99.

Step 2. With her small features, Tamara could pull off this sleek, behind-the-ear look. Prep damp hair with Aussie Dual Personality for Straightening Heat Protection Spray, £4.69, then blow-dry smooth and straighten.

Step 3. Finish with a spritz of Lee Stafford Argan Oil from Morocco Shine Spray, £9.99, for extra youth-boosting gloss.
