What’s Your Style?

‘A woman who changes her hair is about to change her life.’ We have to agree with Coco Chanel on this one: when we want to turn the page to a new chapter in our life, we start at the head. The most fashionable hairstyles are usually the ones that look effortless. Case in point the two trendy styles of the moment: a face-framing fringe (that can be one of the most unnerving style commitments you can make) and a slicked back style (which puts make-up at centre stage.) Which style would you choose?

Face Framing Fringe

Halle Berry, Kerry Washington And Nina Dobrev

WHAT makes bangs challenging is that there are so many variations. Blunt, wispy, side swept, lash grazing, finding your match can be tricky. Think of your face shape, how much time you’re willing to spend each morning and know that dry shampoo will become your new bestie .

Back Track

Paris Jackson, Rihanna And Gigi Hadid

EDGY and sleek, slicked back hair is the perfect accessory for a night out. What’s special about the style is that hair is not pulled into a pony. Instead, it’s slicked back, then left down. No major cuts here.

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
