Show off luscious locks like frequent festival-goer Fearne Cotton. Jonathan Long says: “Plaiting wet hair is a great cheat. Once it’s dry un-ravel the plait to reveal lovely loose waves.
The Messy Bun
Ben Cooke says: “Give a sexy spin to this old classic. Wind your hair round and tie a loose bun with some clear elastics, then ruffle it up, pulling out strands from the top and front of your head for a softer finish.”
The Messy Plait
Ben Cooke says: “Braids, French plaits and fishtails are a big look at the moment. Leona Lewis looks great in them and they are so easy to achieve. Plait hair and then give it a good massage with both hands, to make it look less school-mistress and more wind-swept and relaxed.” Mistress.
Ponytail with Quiff
Jonathan Long says: “You love the Lady Gaga coke-cans-in-the-hair classic, but you can get a festival-friendly version quite simply. Sleep with a big roller holding the front portion of your hair, away from the hairline. In the morning, release your roller and pin a quiff in place with a neat clip or a hair pin. Tie the rest of your hair into a ponytail, and your good to go.”

Have you seen this skincare by Andrea Garland?
Amazing range of handmade natural skincare products in lovely illustrated glass jars. If you prefer you can have the products dispensed into vintage tins- what an excellent idea, looks brilliant and is great recycling.
I've been using the Rose and Benzoin Face Cream - £18 - 60ml - and I love it!
Luxurious and hydrating Rose Maroc, skin rejuvenating Frankincense topped off with a double helping of sweet scented and softening oils Benzoin and Vanilla make this a wonderful regenerative face cream. The trio of Spilanthes acmella, an active ingredient which has been proven to restructure, firm and smooth skin, rebalancing hazelnut oil and anti oxidant rich Vitamin E add to this cream's anti-ageing ability to restore natural radiance. This all topped off with extracts of soya beans and asparagus, which help to bind moisture deeper into the skin.
I've had no break outs, no flare ups and no irritations.
It's made my skin super soft, more even and defiantly hydrated. The cream it's self leaves a slightly matte finish, which is great for me as I'm oily through my t-zone and it only smells of it's natural ingredients.
I've been wearing it daily and as a night cream all over my face neck and chest - it's beautiful.
They also have body products, bath products and obviously other skincare products -
You have to have a look at their website, it's fun - www.andreagarland.co.uk
