After the buzz of London Fashion Week, a new array of hairstyles has emerged. A particular favourite was the playful, wearable look seen at the A/W Topshop Unique show. Inspired by Walt Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, this show saw a cute new hair trend hit the catwalk.
Hair was created by Paul Hanlon, who stayed true to the Disney theme by using Minnie Mouse as his muse. We caught up with Paul who told us a bit more about his quirky look:

Kate Moss has never been one to shy away from headlines, and this week she has dominated the hair news with not just one show stopping ‘do but two! Kate has always been renowned for her bold sense of style and her willingness to play with different looks and, if the latest pictures of her are anything to go by, she takes the same approach to her hair.
The model was snapped in Brazil earlier this week, where she was doing a photo shoot, sporting a hair style which was reminiscent of the eighties. Kate’s generally straight hair had undergone somewhat of a transformation as it was backcombed, curled and teased into what can only be described as a style that an eighties rocker would wear.

Following the Golden Globes, and with the BAFTAs and the Oscars just around the corner, awards fever is sweeping the planet. People on both sides of the Atlantic are all raving about the King’s Speech and trying to guess who will sweep the board. So in keeping with all the goss, we thought we would give this week’s poll an awards theme!
If you are anything like us you’ll be dying to know not only what the lovely ladies in attendance will be wearing, but also what ‘do they will be sporting. So this week we asked you to tell us what would be your top hair style if you were lucky enough to attend an awards bash. And a staggering 50% of you said you would rock the red carpet with loose curls!
Clearly you are taking inspiration from the likes of Mila Kunis and Glee star Lea Michele who both looked absolutely stunning with curly hair at the recent SAG awards! We thought that more of you would have opted for an up-do but we can see why you chose curls, especially when Mila and Lea wear the style so well. What’s more, this style screams effortless chic and looks ultra natural.
Tell us what it is that you love about curls… is it their subtle appeal, or the fact they are easy to create?

Word has reached us that American chat show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, has decided to celebrate all things hair this week by launching the first ever Perm Week! That’s right you read correctly, Jimmy Fallon and his team are indeed celebrating that eighties classic, the perm!
As part of the festivities five lucky (or unlucky, depending on which way you look at it) audience members will be given a hair makeover. Now we would love a bit of a hair revamp, but unfortunately for the chosen audience members there will be no golden highlights or beautifully crafted pixie crops, all five will be treated to a perm!
Brooke Shields was a guest on Jimmy’s show this week and in keeping with the perm theme the actress brought along a picture of her sporting the look back in the eighties. Now we here at Goody are all about experimenting with our hair and trying out new styles but we’re yet to be convinced about the perm revival. Over the years it has become synonymous with poodles, so can this style really make a comeback?
Let us know what you think is Jimmy right to celebrate the perm? Or should this look stay in the eighties?

Calling all fashionistas! We have a new hair lust that we just know you are going to love! We here at Goody just can’t get enough of our Fashion Now range. This collection is jam packed full of glam clips, grips, slides (in fact pretty much every kind of hair accessory you can think of) and is perfect for the trendiest of ladies.
Boasting shapes, textures and patterns fresh from the catwalk, the range includes a number of bobby pins. Now we know what you are thinking – “there’s nothing exciting about bobby pins”- but ladies you couldn’t be more wrong as these aren’t your standard bobby pins! Instead they combine style with practicality to bring you a big helping of glitz.
Rather than using your usual bobby pins to hold flyaway hair in place, opt for the Fashion Now Skinny Bobby Slides. These slides come in a selection of colours, to brighten up your hair on even the dreariest of days, and the embellishment on these bobby slides mean they are bang on trend.
Meanwhile the Textured Ponytailer is ideal for those of you who love to wear your hair up, but feel it never makes much of an impact. This ponytailer transforms your look from everyday to sophisticated style, and if you ask us is absolutely perfect for creating a work to bar look!
Let us know what you think of the Fashion Now – what’s your favourite accessory in the range?

Well it seems that Jennifer Aniston is queen of the polls as she once again tops our weekly survey. Last week you voted her your number one celebrity blonde and this week she has continued to reign supreme as she was named the celebrity you would most like to receive a lock of hair from!
Following on from reports that chat show host Ellen DeGeneres asked for a lock of Justin Bieber’s hair as a birthday present, we had a little bit of fun with this week’s poll and asked you to tell us which celeb’s hair you would like as a gift. With a whopping 66% of the vote, Jennifer stormed to victory. It seems when it comes to hair there is no poll this woman can’t win!
We knew that Jen and her ‘do were liked but we had no idea they were this popular, especially given that she faced stiff competition from the likes of Cheryl Cole, who came in second place. However, unlike Ellen, it seems that none of you lovely ladies want a lock of Justin’s hair as the pint-sized celeb came joint last in the poll alongside Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt!
What is it that you love so much about Jennifer’s hair? Is it because she has sported some iconic styles? We’d love to hear from you, so let us know!

Vanity Fair has once again dazzled the world with the unveiling of the cover for its 17th annual Hollywood edition. In true Hollywood style the cover was revealed in the run up to the Oscars and features a number of beautiful A-list actors and actresses.
However, we have to admit we were a bit overcome with jealousy when we saw Anne Hathaway on the cover. Not only was she wearing a stunning couture dress and just happened to be surrounded by a group of gorgeous men, including Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, but she was also sporting a fabulous ‘do – some girls have all the luck!
In keeping with the Hollywood glamour theme, Anne opted to wear an ultra glam 1940s-inspired hair style. Her fabulous locks really created an impact and instantly caught our eye. However, what we really love about her look is how simple it is to achieve – all you need is a set of rollers, such as Goody’s Velcro rollers, and you will be looking as glam as Anne. What’s more, Ms Hathaway really rocks the style and looks like she should be sipping cocktails with forties’ stars Ginger Rogers and Rita Hayworth!
We love Anne’s retro look, she oozes old school glamour but let us know what you think. Will you be trying this style out for yourself?
