The training cycle is tough on the body, and with successive workouts-and-showers, nothing takes a much of a gruelling battering as the hair. As such, and in direct response to several curious, hair-conscious reader enquiries over the years of scribing, this post is fully dedicated to hair health. I may be a highly qualified professional when it comes to training and the likes of sports massage, but I’m only an enthusiastic amateur on matters pertaining to the hair. As such, I’ve done the heavy lifting for you, and picked the brain of multi-award-winning superstar hair artist Siobhan ‘Shivvy’ Jones for all the choicest pro-tips. Shivvy is a L’Oréal Professionnel teacher & Guest Artist, hair stylist on X Factor, Next Top Model, and artist to the likes of Little Mix, as well as being the Owner and Creative Director of Rose & Wild Hair, her delightful new studio in Fulham where we shot these pics! Those are some of her professional credentials, but beyond that, she enjoys heavyweight repute for setting the tone on colour technique and trends in the fashion industry.

Just a super-quick post to draw attention to a fabulous cause. My friends over at Aussie are supporting not only Movember, but also the lesser-known, yet equally awesome concept of the Misstache – a solidarity cause, for fellow ‘Mo Sistas’. The aim is the same: to improve the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems, and to date, the community has raised £346m. Girls – why not get involved for this super-important cause and show your #Misstache for #Movember – just post & share a cheeky little selfie with an intricate and/or gorgeous locket of hair as your ‘tache & share on Facebook! You could even get a couple of friends misstached up, to help spread the awareness & get Mo Sistas everywhere involved! I went for a bit of a Bjorn Borg 70’s look for mine 😀 Click MORE to see the other pics from my fun misstache shoot, & to see Aussie’s super-cute video on the efforts…
