The hair style

Celebrity and catwalk stylist Sam McKnight, who works with Pantene, thinks hair this year is going to be a futuristic affair.

"From interesting, innovative architectural styles, to upbeat, optimistic looks, it's classic and edgy with a feminine twist.

"Classic up-dos and chignons are given modernist makeovers, with asymmetric topknots and gravity-defying backcombing.

"But despite the focus on modernism, the summer has a relaxed vibe. In contrast to the ladylike trends, there's little that's too 'done' or 'finished'. Instead, there's a laid-back edge that manages to be cool yet romantic," says McKnight.

WHAT TO BUY..

Sebastian Matte Putty, pounds 14.75 (available at participating salons nationwide)

The must-have make-up look

According to Pat McGrath, Max Factor's creative director, bold make-up is back for spring 2009: "Spring is usually associated with light natural make-up, but this season we're going for lots of different strong looks.

"I wanted to complement the stunning collections seen on the catwalks," says McGrath.

The Body Shop's Chase Aston agrees: "The Shimmer cubes I designed are multifunctional and the ice cream shades can be worn softly. But if you add a little water you can get stronger washes of colour from these shades giving you a more dramatic catwalk look."

WHAT TO BUY..

M&S Essential Colours Liquid Eyeliner in Aqua, pounds 3, nail polish, pounds 2.50 in Flame and Shocking pink and lip glosses, pounds 2.50 in Candy and Geranium. The Body Shop Limited Edition Shimmer Cube No18, pounds 16.

The latest gadget

Red light has long been used in salon facials to rejuvenate skin and now you can get the same results at home with this Perricone MD Light Renewal Lamp.

It's the first of its kind in the UK and a groundbreaking beauty gadget that has been trialed to show it restores skin and helps tackle the signs of ageing.

It combines two light sources, red and infrared, which are clinically proven to target the cells that support the production of collagen and elastin, and make cells more efficient.

It's expensive at pounds 225 but it lasts for 18,000 treatments and is the closest thing to a clinical-based treatment.

The odourless fake tan

Smelling like stale biscuits may have put you off fake tan in the past, so you will love Vita Liberata's new range which smells of absolutely nothing!

The luxurious 24ct Silken Shimmer, pounds 17.50, is a sheer instant tan that washes off.

It contains chocolaty bronzing pearls and natural silk extracts to leave skin silky, shimmery, soft and, most of all, bronzed.
