Hair by Jamie Stevens
Jade's mum Norma
Jade's mum had been colouring her own hair at home using home dye so we stripped out a lot of the dark colour from the mid lengths and ends. We then put a really nice vibrant plum on to her hair to give her some warmth and shine. Her haircut was transformed from a one length bob to an inverted graduated bob, which emphasises her neck and jaw line. I blow-dried the hair and ran over with straightening irons, and finished with a wax to create texture and definition.
Jesy's mum Jan
We gave her the real Audrey Hepburn eat your heart out look, which was created by applying Matrix's Loosely Defined Texture Crème to wet hair. The hair was then blow dried with a medium round brush. I started off the look by scraping all the hair into a high ponytail on the crown and then backcombing all of the ponytail and using fake hair, which was the same as her real hair, as padding. I then pinned this around the ponytail to create
the bun and smoothed the back comb out over the padding, to give a big smooth Audrey Hepburn bun. To finish, I sprayed with a good quality hairspray and shine spray.
Leigh-Anne's mum Debbie
Again, we stripped out her old colour from the mid lengths and ends of her hair and added a deep ruby red colour, which added shine and thickness. The hair was then blow-dried with a medium round brush and styled with straightening irons to create curls and waves. To finish off the look, I used my new hero product, Matrix's Mega Dust Volume Texturiser, which is a microfibre dust that you tap on and instantly doubles the thickness and
texture of your hair.
Perrie's mum Deborah
I gave her a half head of blonde highlights and toned the whole lot with an ash toner, which eliminates any yellowy tones and made her hair look really clean and fresh. We styled her hair by using the Mini Micro Crimpers. We crimped an inch section at the root, which gives amazing body and a thick padding at the root. The rest of the hair was curled using medium sized tongs.
Jamie's top tips
Hair is the main accessory we all wear 24/7, which we can't take off so you have to continuously update your look. I have a three-strike policy. You should try something different every third visit to the salon. It doesn't have to be a drastic change, maybe a new colour, more layers, a shorter length or a new fringe.
