Some days just aren't worth getting the hair brush out for, let alone the tongs and irons. On days like this, what you really need is a quick fix that will have you out the door and looking presentable in no time at all. Here are my favourite hair drama fixes...
The Quick Slick Ponytail
Apply some gel, or straightening balm around the hairline to tame any flyaways, be sure to check all the way round and by your ears too. Tie the hair in as high a ponytail as you can without any hair escaping. Finish with a spritz of lasting hold hairspray. I recommend MOP.

H.Samuel, High Street Jeweller, is launching a range of gifts and jewellery during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to raise funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the UK’s leading breast cancer charity and a charity that I support myself.

I have recently had my own sight scare. After accidentally leaving my contact lenses in overnight I developed an ulcer which required emergency treatment. I can't stress enough, how important it is to take care of your eyes, I was very lucky but others are not.
Word Sight Day, October 9th 2008, is an annual day of awareness coordinated by the Vision 2020 Global Initiative and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).

You can get your hands on a tub at Selfridges but get there quick. It is currently their best selling premium beauty product so who knows how long stocks will last.
You can also buy online.
Ralph Lauren is getting ready to launch a premium fragrance that will set buyers back a whopping £2000. The perfume called 'Love' features a gold plated bottle and will be stocked by Harrods.
With the credit crunch affecting the majority of people, it seems there will always be those who can afford the luxuries in life.
You can also expect 'Notorious', a perfume that was recently launched in the US to hit UK stores soon. Marie Claire's pages will be scented with it and you should be able to order a sample direct from the red button on your TV. No doubt we will all be wearing it by Christmas.
If you have a few minutes to spare, get your web browser over to the Agent Provocateur website. Sample the tantalising new ranges and explore the bonus web features.
The latest ad campaign is titled 'Season of the Witch' and the dark images are even hotter than usual. If you ever needed some underwear inspiration then this is it! Check out Daisy Lowe and Peaches in some seriously saucy shots.
