Tracey's top product is prima as it helps the look to last longer and her top tip is to test lip colour on the tip of your middle finger as it is a close shade to your lips.

Danielle has shoulder length hair and after a consultation with stylist Lisa she decided to have the top half put up into barrel curls and her fringe blow-dried on to the side. For a finishing touch Lisa added soft curls to the back and some lilac paper flowers.

Jessica has slightly longer hair so stylist Melissa suggested a funky spiky look. She sectioned Jessica's hair and twisted each individual division to create an irregular fashionable look. Both girls really liked their new looks and agreed they each suited the individual styles. …
