>HAIR CARE John Frieda's senior stylist Jake Davies gives us some tips for two key trends for summer. "Unstructured curls are big news; loose and natural, random textures, an 'undone' look," he says. Get the look: Prepare washed hair with John Frieda Dream Curls Curl Perfector Spray (€5.99) then blast dry to get rid of the heavy wet, followed by tossing the head upside down to achieve the loose-curled look. Follow this by diffusing the hair in sections, adding hairspray to hold shape.
"Fringes are still big for Spring/Summer," says Davies, "side and sweeping fringes, nothing too blunt." Get the look: Wash hair and apply John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Formula Serum (€6.89) and John Frieda Frizz-Ease Straightening Potion Spray (€5.99) to wet hair. When the hair is nearly dry, blow-dry using a brush beginning with the front sections, treating the fringe as separate. Direct the nozzle of your hairdryer downwards to smooth the cuticle and always blow-dry your hair against the direction it will ultimately fall.
>DEEP CLEAN Garnier's new Pure Active Exfo-Brusher, €11.69 is a cleanser with an added bonus -- a Jedward haircut! Not really, it's actually a super-soft brush which provides a gentle exfoliation action to remove grime and dead skin cells, which can block pores and lead to breakouts.
>bright beauty Marks & Spencer has revamped its beauty and skincare ranges and the results are worth a look.
