Plaits with panache.

I'm glad that plaits are still popular for spring. I'm definitely going to try a side plait. I've only just had a fringe cut back in; without the fringe they made my face look really long. (I'm sure my chin has grown, recently. It's really pointy!)

Maegan (top left) gives instructions on her awesome blog on how to plait with panache. The Vogue blogs also give instructions on how to plait as per below. I love the fishtail style, bottom right.

Hair. A serious business.

Let me tell you, as a Seinfeld fan, if your hairdresser casually mentions that he once did Elaine's's a  moment. And then, as a Donald Draper obsessive admirer, when your hairdresser's doing your hair and he's all like, 'yeah, I'll do it your way but I'd like to do it like the girl Don Draper went to LA with in Mad Men', you're like, this is unbelievable.

So yeah. I found a really good hairdresser. I put a plea on my Facebook status, that a friend might be able to guide me towards someone who won't give me a Rachel cut. Because my usual hairdresser kept giving me them. I haven't been for eight months, such has become my fear. Anyway, three friends said they went to the same place. And two of them go to Andy. And I, reader, heartily recommend you do the same. Like, straight away.

I mean check out these lovelies. You'd want to go to their hairdresser too, right? Check out this fringe!

This is a total wimp-out on my behalf, because I'm not even going to post a picture of my new do. Haha! Bloggers' rights.

Go to Andrew or Laura at Viva (Andrew did Elaine's hair and that fringe) – 47 Lexington Street, London. 020 7287 8708. They're reasonably priced, too.

[Thanks for letting me post your pics, gorgeous ladies. Check out The Fringe's amazing mosaic work. I used to work with Lucy and she seriously has the best hair ever. Never ask her about what she saw an alsation do to a sheep, though. And Kerry: DJ and soon-to-be traveller – read her blog about her travels.]
