IT's time to experiment this summer with a fresh look and attitude.
We go back in time and take inspiration from iconic '70s and '80s looks to help you feel Fabulous.
70s — THAT’S A WRAP
Hair wraps were a trend in the ‘70s, but now there’s a more subtle take on the look.
If you don’t want to go bold, you can rock a hair scarf by wrapping it around your pony instead.
This look is not polished, so the more dishevelled your locks, the better – it’s great for second-day hair.
Use a waving tool, such as Beauty Works The Waver, £70 to create texture, then scrunch a texturising foam into dry locks – IGK Sunday Funday Texture Foam, £25, will hold the wave in place.
Pull into the centre of your head with a hair tie before wrapping and knotting a scarf around it.
Hair not long enough for a high pony? Leave the bottom section of your hair out of the scarf to create the illusion of a lengthier mane.

80s — PUT A RINGLET ON IT
Perms were a major thing back in the ‘80s, and this year we’ve seen the corkscrew curl make a comeback – and we reckon it’s here to stay.
The good news is that even if your tresses are flat, there’s always a way to get curl into them without having to commit to a perm.
Use a spray, such as GHD Heat Protect Spray, £12.95, on freshly washed hair before rough-drying.
Then, separating your hair into 1in sections, take a corkscrew curler, such as Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler, £19.99, and wrap each section around it for 10 seconds.
This should create tight curls. Once your whole head is done, spritz through a mega-hold spray, such as Boots Ultimate Hold Hairspray, £1.50, to keep your curls in place.
Finally, run your fingers through your locks to separate them for a natural finish.

90s — SLIDE SHOW
Hair clips are officially back and the trendy ‘90s way of teaming with a poker-straight mane is making an appearance once more.
For this look, you want the glossiest of locks, so after straightening your whole head of hair with a set of wide-plate straighteners, such as Remington Pro-Ceramic Extra Hair Straightener, £34.99, spritz on John Frieda Frizz Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist, £5.99, for a serious injection of shine.
After parting your hair in the centre, add a statement hair clip (£6 for two, ASOS) about 2in away from your parting on either side. Simple yet stylish!

00s — NOUGHTY BUT NICE
Anyone who was anyone in the early 2000s would have been all-too-familiar with a bit of hair crimping à la Christina Aguilera.
But now the look has an edgy twist. Rather than crimping all of your strands from root to tip, this style is all about making it a cool feature.
Start with straight hair, then take a tool such as Babyliss The Crimper, £22.99, and press it down at the top of one 10cm section of hair, starting at the front hairline.
Then, gently move it down a couple of inches and do the same all over. This will create a zigzag effect, which you can then spritz in place with a soft-touch, glossing fixing spray such as Aveda Air Control Hair Spray, £21.
