Decide to shave, colour or wax
No.1 or No.2: If you’re going to shave, we prefer clipper length No1 or No2. Many women opt for No3 or No4. For health and liability reasons we don’t recommend blade shaves down to the skin.
Temporary colour: Spray your locks with a stunning non-permanent hair spray or wax which washes out. Cinta hair spray is ideal for this and it’s available from all good pharmacies. You can also try hair chalks - they wash out easily as well. You can buy a pack here
Other ideas: Try shaving off a beard or waxing your legs!
