Giveaway: The Ultimate Hair Makeover with Josh Wood Atelier

As I’ve already mentioned, possibly more times than necessary, I’ve had a bit of a hair makeover. I’m loathe to bang on about it too much, but I can’t seem to help myself: I think that I was probably pretty low about my appearance after having Ted, and my new, shorter, blonder hair has really given my self-esteem a lift.

I didn’t really intend to go shorter and blonder, but I think that Kat (hair stylist) and Melanie (hair colourist) at Josh Wood Atelier sensed that I needed something new. Nothing too drastic but just enough of a change to make me feel perky about myself again.

Hair overhauls can go one of many ways – you need only read my post on my modelling hair disasters to know that – and so it takes some really special teamwork to create something that not only boosts your self-esteem but makes your life easier. Less time spent styling, more of a dramatic effect when you do spend time styling, and a colour that really flatters your complexion.

Here I am before my hair makeover:

And here I am afterwards. (Spot the babysitting going on in the background!)

Just taking a couple of inches from the length and making things choppier really freshened everything up, and the lighter tones around my face somehow made me look less tired. A feat bordering on miraculous…

I think that it’s actually quite rare to come away with new hair and be completely happy – there’s usually some element of self-doubt or worry about how it’ll look once you’ve washed it! – and so it is with great excitement that I announce my latest giveaway. It’s simply amazing. The top prize is worth a whopping £500: the winner will have the ultimate hair makeover at Josh Wood Atelier in London, with a hair cut by Kat de Rozario and colour with Melanie Smith!

Whether you fancy a style refresh or something completely new, this is the hair prize of dreams. And for ten runners up, I have a Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry haircare collection, each worth £50. The “Glow Dry” range includes a shampoo, conditioner, gloss scrub and style-enhancing oil and has been created to give hair a brilliant shine – an excellent fix if you find that your hair looks dull when you blow-dry it, it really adds a glossy sheen.

    I love your new hair – I really think a new look can give you such a boost in a way that a lot of other things such as clothes and makeup cant. Sounds like a totally amazing prize, good luck to everyone! Fingers crossed

      I got my first straight cut about 6 months ago, like yourself my hair blond and fine, on oh my! I feel like I have been lied to all my life, being told layers are the way to go. Straight cut can gives more volume and that youthful flare. I love it.

      You’ve inspired me to take the plunge and get rid of my rats tail(slash) mullet which never fails to return. Its there when i catch a glimpse of my back hair in mirrors and shop windows- temporarily transported to the 1980s and Hall&Oates playing in my head- not such a bad thing but still i need a kick to get myself back in THAT chair with that mirror and those bright lights .. Thankful for your fun and smart musings

    That would be amazing! I’ve never been to he hairdresser’s and my mum’s only trimed my hair a few times through the years. Never had it coloured either so maybe I should try going a little lighter? It’s not growing much, which I find fustrating, and is only a little longer than yours, so could definitely do with an expert eye and cut! Please, please pick me! ;)

    Hi Ruth, I haven’t commented on any of your posts before but I have been a fan for a long time. I came across you through following me sisters school friend Fiona Brattle on social media. I am a 31 year old farmers wife and mum of two and I would love a hair re vamp. I usually have my hair cut twice a year and it normally costs less than £20. I just don’t have the time or the childcare needed for anything more. Before I married my wonderful husband I used to love my hair and do all sorts of creative things with it. I love my life ( I make jam from my own fruit, collect eggs with the kids, etc etc) but is a bit depressing that it is at the cost of my appearance and my hair has become such a low priority.

  53. Emily
    August 4, 2017 / 11:34 am

    Your new hair looks lovely! Mine definitely needs switching up but i’m too worried it’ll look awful to make a big change, so this would be great to make the jump!

  54. August 4, 2017 / 11:35 am

    In desperate need of someone sort my hair out! Would love this! Good luck everyone and Ruth you look amazing as always, with and without the new’do x

Actually, I just had a look at his price list this morning after I read your post about the new hair style again and was SO sad I can’t afford to go there as you look so stunningly beautiful with that new cut & colour. Looks exactly the way I want my hair to look, love it!

    Hi Ruth, your new hair looks amazing and really suits you! having said that, you
    could carry off any hairstyle and look great. I haven’t changed my hair for 3 years
    and mainly wear it up for ease, i would love a shorter ‘do’ and different colour, what an amazing giveaway!! xx

    Your hair looks gorgeous! As someone desperately trying to look semi-decent while trying to grow out a pixie cut and and bleach, I could really do with an overhaul to prevent me just cutting it all off again! xx

    I had a baby last year, ( number 2), and literally haven’t had the time ( or the energy), to do anything with my hair. I tie it into a ponytail most days which I feel looks good on a 12 year old, but I’m 38, and starting to feel like I need a more grown up look. Your post has really given me the inspiration to do something about it. I love you blog, I chuckle endlessly over your posts about your 2 lovely little kiddos, as I can relate to everything you are going through. Keep up the good work!!! Xx

  75. August 4, 2017 / 12:00 pm

    Fantastic prize! I do believe that hair is crown of our beauty as it frames the face.

  76. Sofie Andersen
    August 4, 2017 / 12:01 pm

    Your new haircut looks absolutely gorgeous! And what a magnificent prize – I’m feeling quite a bit less than my best as I’m due to have my first baby in October, so thank you for the chance to win such a perfect treat.

    Hi Ruth/ Madame Crilly!
    You are absolutly hilarious, I always have a laugh watching you!
    It’s awsome how you look so stunning, having two little ones and an amazing career! That’s what I look up to and hopefully achieve maybe one day too! Btw I wasn’t at a hairdresser in 4 years.
    Love what you do,

    Sophie

    What a generous prize!

    I love your new hair look, Ruth – I thought you had nice hair before, but the colour and cut really seem to brighten your face. It’s very “fresh”!

    I use the glow dry oil and love it! Lightweight and smells lovely (because let’s face it, it DOES matter) and adds shine. Would love to try the other products and may have to have a bit of a shop, love me a bit of Redken.

  79. Alanna
    August 4, 2017 / 12:02 pm

    Gosh, I could do with this. My dog gets her hair cut more often than me (she’s a cockapoo and she has very luscious locks)

  80. Nicki
    August 4, 2017 / 12:05 pm

    I have a gorgeous wonderful 10 month old but feel exactly the same as you – my little one is amazing but my hair is thin and dull and the blow drier is rotting away never getting used. Plus I’m an older mum so feel even more frumpy! I love your column and even if I don’t win I’m inspired to get a nice colour and sharper cut as you look fabulous. Thanks Ruth for giving me some hope I might one day look a bit glamorous again! Nicki x

  81. Elizabeth Ronayne
    August 4, 2017 / 12:11 pm

    Great Opportunity! I’d love to win this for my mum! She feels in such a rut with her hair and it’s really getting her down which makes me super sad. She has never disliked her hair so much. She just has no idea what to do with it and she would love some direction from someone who knows what they’re doing – her hairdresser at the moment just isn’t inspiring her and I feel like a new approach would be so so soooo amazing for her! Fingers crossed!!

    Oh my gosh this is the BEST GIVEAWAY EVER! I never feel as though I have my hair “quite right” for my face shape and complexion. Seeing the difference this haircut has made to you has shown me that I need to get my act together and sort my own barnet out! Thanks Ruth!

    Love your hair Ruth. I’m in desparate need of a hair cut, not had anything done since February! Spent the last 6 years looking for someone who understands my hair properly to cut it. It just hangs, can’t curl it into soft waves, doesn’t dye well. My permanent colour in February just washed straight out in 3 washes showing all my grey. You should have seen the white hotel towels I was staying at at the time. Sad times. :'(

  104. Heather Nelson
    August 4, 2017 / 1:09 pm

    Oh blimey, this is incredible! I too am in a hair rut post baby (he’s nearly two. It’s been a long rut…). Had to get rid of my fringe as couldn’t have trims often enough. I loved my fringe! It made me feel all cool and French. Anyway, your hair looks ace Ruth x

  115. Lucy Brenton

    Wow – what a generous prize.

    A few weeks ago I would’ve given anything for this prize but I have recently learnt the devastating news that I have breast cancer and will be needing chemotherapy to treat it. The reality of that is that I will (most probably) lose my hair so this prize would be wasted on me unfortunately.

    Good luck to everyone that enters – it is an amazing giveaway.

    Hi Ruth, thanks for the opportunity to win this giveaway – and for your blogs and videos which i really enjoy. Having become a single mum (with a lovely 5 year old boy) last year and renting in Zone 2 London (I didn’t want my son to experience split family and school move so soon) I can barely afford to go to the hairdresser -even though I’d love to spruce up my greying hair. The Josh Wood experience sounds amazing (and judging by your hair, gives great results) and would truly be a lift for me :)
    Thanks again for your ace company and advice in your vlogs x

    I don’t think you’re going on about your hair Ruth! Truth is it looks amazing. It has really inspired me to try something new with my own colour. I was thinking of going a bit lighter on the ends as well (I’m sorry, but imitation is the most sincere form of flattery?)
    And this prize is brilliant. I live in London it’d be just perfect for me!

    Yay!
    I could really do with colourist advice on how to deal with my rapidly greying brown hair…I’m flummoxed. What do other people do? I don’t want to be grey at 37!

  233. Laura
    August 4, 2017 / 8:54 pm

    Could certainly do with a bit of an overhaul myself; feel like my fine, flat and thinning hair makes me look so much older. Your new hair is just lovely Ruth; you look much brighter-eyed and bushier-tailed…

  249. Sarah S
    August 4, 2017 / 9:48 pm

    I definitely understand this feeling – sometimes something a little bit ‘superficial’ helps you remember a teeny bit of who you were pre-baby!

    Your post (and rocking hair) has reminded me to take some me-time – my hair has gotten so long and wild that when it was caught in the unfortunate baby-sick crosshairs recently I didn’t notice the patch of dried, um, baby styling agent, in it for TWO DAYS.

  250. Kitty C

    You’ve rekindled my love affair with hair and beauty since late 2011, when my dad passed away suddenly from pancreatic cancer. I felt the need to become creative and your blogs are so real and creatively inspiring. It’s going to be my big 40
    this year and always felt that I should do something with the limp, dry mop I have on my head…❤️

    Your hair is gorgeous. I’m feeling quite old and frumpy and really don’t know what to do with my hair. The casual look I loved in my teens and twenties just looks unkempt in my late 30’s. I would live a restyled with someone who had the confidence and skill to really help me find a great new style.

    Hi Ruth! I would love to win this prize – Kat and Melanie are clearly brilliant at knowing what’s best for the individual person, and that’s what I need – every time I go to the hairdresser hoping for a change, I end up chickening out and getting the same old safe cut and colour, so I need someone who knows what they are talking about to help me take the plunge!

I’ve had very fine hair all my life, even pregnancy blooming hasn’t improved it and it’s never bounced back from the dreaded four month hair loss (my baby is now two with another on the way!). I’m currently trying to perfect the Mum-bun but haven’t mastered that yet. Yours looks stunning Ruth!

    Amazing prize and one which will make any lucky Mummy feel more ‘ME’ and less like just ‘Mummy, Mama, Mother’. Too often we seem to allow ourselves to come last on a very long list of things to do. This will make you feel number one again……for a few hours. The new hair will make you smile every time to see yourself in the mirror. Even if it is a mad dash while doing bathtime, helping with homework or sorting the washing!

  377. Zoe
    August 5, 2017 / 10:18 am

    In the only person I know who was actually excited about postpartum hair loss – I have really thick hair and it came out by the handful. It made no difference though and my toddler now enjoys pulling it and wrapping it round my face. I can’t decide if I’m going to grow it or cut it off, so I’d love someone to take the decision out of my hands!

  378. Madalyn King
    August 5, 2017 / 10:19 am

    Great new hair there Ruth and what a fab prize! Although having days that I didn’t know you could actually spend a whole £500 on a hairdo! If I won though I’d give it my best shot ;-)

    Your new cut looks great- well done for taking the plunge.
    I understand the fear of getting a new hair cut completely – so much so that my last haircut at a hairdressers was when I was 18, I’m 46 now. I can still remember the tears as I walked home. Since then it’s been a trim with my head over the bath or persuading my husband to chop it off. I have spent the past 3 years growing out my dyed hair to go grey (which I am very pleased about) but am wondering what to do next so it doesn’t look neglected & old – any advice/help would be gratefully received.

  383. August 5, 2017 / 10:25 am

    The new hair look amazing on you and Redken products are innovative and actually perfect for my hair. Would love to go to the attelier and have a change wit the best. Thanks for this amazing giveaway. Xx

    What a fabulous opportunity to finally break the mold and ascend the rut. Endless unsuccessful IVF has catapulted me into an early menopause and the hair loss and breakage resonates with your post partum experiences that is screaming out for Kat and Melanie to work their magic!

    Oh my goodness, this sounds like a dream! I had my boy 9 weeks ago, and his new favourite thing is to run his fingers through my bird’s nest and get those little digits all tangled up. It’s a wonderful mix of endearing and embarrassing, especially when I have to play the ‘is that a split end or an eyelash on your face’ game when I’m feeding him!

    Anyway, your new hair is utterly gorgeous. Total hairspiration.

    Wow! That’s a generous giveaway! I’ll never forget the first time my mum let me go to the hair dressers (she used to insist on cutting it herself) and they gave me a horrible cut and these awful yellow highlights that were about 2cm wide each. I sat there trying not to cry while my mum told me to thank the ‘stylist’. Worst haircut ever.

  414. Victoria
    August 5, 2017 / 12:33 pm

    Can’t tell you how much I’d love (need) this – my self-esteem has taken a serious battering after recently having baby number 2, and at least if my hair looks fab people might ignore the fact that I’ve got the skin of a hormonal 14-year old boy and the post-pregnancy thighs of a sumo wrestler? Right? Right??

    Never really get my hair done anymore as can’t justify the cost when I’ve got two little ones who get through clothes/toys/musical bumps classes like they’re training for some sort of child olympics, but I currently have more grey hairs than brown, and more rats tails than a New York sewer system, so really got my fingers crossed for this one!

    Absolutely love your new look by the way, and honestly not kissing arse to further my chances, but you make being a mum to two-under-two look easy x

    I used to have a short bob, that I loved, but grew my hair for my wedding, so the hairdresser could style it. Now it’s passed my shoulders and I’ve no idea what to do with it. You hair looks effortless.

    What an awesome giveaway.
    I could really do with getting my haircut. I had an awful experience & didn’t cut my hair for 4 years. I booked a haircut in February but was too scared to have anything but a trim. My hair is in such bad condition but I’m always terrified that I’ll end up with something too short that doesn’t compliment my face shape!

    This sounds amazing – I have often come home from salons dismayed at what’s happened to my curly-frizzy locks… Chronic illness doesn’t help on the self esteem front, so a lift would be fab. Plus I am forever hopeful I might find a stylist who can help me ‘sort out’ my hair!

    You’re looking awesome in the before and after shots btw. X

    I love your new hair Ruth! I could really do with a nice new hair-do which is manageable and still looks good with a little less effort; if I don’t style my hair I look like i’ve been dragged through several miles of hedgerows backwards!! I don’t have time to spend hours of my life attempting to not burn my fingers off with a heat styler, whilst trying to stop a toddler destroying the house, before attempting the major task of convincing said toddler that now is precisely the right time to leave the house and yes, shoes are required and no, you can’t take half your toys with you.. It’s so daunting to trust a new hairdresser and actually find one that will do a good job!! Fabulous prize for the lucky winner! x

    You looked lovely before, however that has more to do with your outlook, than your locks. But if the hair cut makes you feel better about yourself then why not. Silly how external validation is so intrinsic to our self-esteem. I’m as guilty of it as anyone. X

I love your writing about motherhood and have really enjoyed hearing a little bit about Ted growing whilst watching my own.

  518. Lucy
    August 6, 2017 / 8:09 am

    After a pretty horrific year last year this would be a lovely prize for me. I’m not going to tell you the sob story but let’s just say after my last pregnancy, for the first time in my life my hair has turned to straw, even though I’ve never dyed it or treated it badly. I’ve got tufts of new hair sprouting everywhere and it’s just a right mess! I’m now pregnant again so it’s starting to feel a little better but I’m always at a loss about what to ask for at the hairdressers…I always say the same old thing and somehow end up with different cuts each time. Please make me over!!

  519. Sharron

    My roots are 4 months long at the moment so this would be amazing! My appearance is definitely getting me down just now and the sleepless nights aren’t helping. My son is 15 months old and going through a really rough patch with sleep. I’m losing hope he will ever sleep through the night as it hasn’t happened once. I can see ‘Mummy’s Enormous Roots and Even Bigger Eye Bags’ in a board book soon…although it might be better suited to the crime/thriller section than the children’s.

  521. Claire

  537. Terrehouse
    August 6, 2017 / 10:57 am

    £500?? For a hairdresser to cut and colour your hair?? Clearly, I’ve been living in SW France long enough to be completely out of touch with London prices because that seems like a crazy amount of money to spend. You’d be ruined for life because you’d never be able to afford to go back for a trim (that is, I’d be ruined for life). That said, Ruth, your hair does look AMAZING!

  538. Hannah Aspinall

    Your new hair cut and style is amazing. Sadly for me illness ment my long locks had to go. I am now left with a bad haircut as the hospital had to cut my hair in places to treat me. Tried to get ot rectified twice but still not great. You are so right a good haircut and style does lift your spirits. Am not confident with what I have currently.

    This prize would be absolutely priceless to me. I’ve had a home hair disaster and now have a pixie cut and when I look in the mirror all I see is my mother. Of course my mum is gorgeous, but she’s in her seventies and I’m in my forties. Please, please, please let this be my lucky day :) x

    Lovely ‘do’ lady! People always comment how lucky I am to have thick hair but I find it really hard work and feel forced to keep it long when I’d love a shorter style.
    Expense-wise, I prioritise covering the grey. I would give full permission for the professionals to tame my unruly mane!

    Ooooh really love what has been done to your hair. I certainly could do with a makeover!

  562. August 6, 2017 / 3:25 pm

    You look absolutely stunning!!!! I know that feeling… You feel your energy drained and just need something to lift your mood and confidence. For 2 years I couldn’t wear what I wanted (breastfeeding) and couldn’t shift the weight. Now things finally started getting there and I need a makeover like crazy to lift me! I have been following Katherine for years and your haircut makes me really want to do it! Fingers crossed!!!! Thanks so much for this giveaway and for sharing the makeover (and the need for it)! xxx

    Such an amazing prize! I haven’t paid for a hair cut or colour in years, I am a hair model for students to practise their skills on. Aside from a few surprises it almost always ends up looking alright. But this would be a great treat indeed!

    It is so very hard to find a hairdresser that you can trust and who you feel comfortable with but you have obviously found a gem of a salon there and it shows in your face as well as your hair – well done. Having your hair done is such a good pick me up and if you gave ever been in a situation where you gave not been able to get to the hairdresser regularly you will know what I mean, it can be so depressing and make things feel much worse. This us a lovely competition and who ever wins it will have a fantastic day and hopefully feel really buoyed up by the whole experience. Good luck to all.

  565. August 6, 2017 / 4:01 pm

    You’re new style looks fab. I would love the chance of having a new cut and colour as feeling really frumpy and need a style to flatter my fat face and thin hair – if anyone can do it, I think Kat de Rozario and Melanie Smith at Josh Wood Atelier can.

    August 6, 2017 / 4:43 pm

    I can’t believe that you used to let people cut your hair while you were on shoots Ruth! I’d be too terrified of getting my hair cut by anyone! I’ve never set foot in a hairdressers! The only person who’s ever touched my hair is my mother and she’s only ever cut a couple of inches off , she’s no hairdresser she just goes straight across with a pair of scissors! I love the length of my hair and the thickness of it too but it’s so high maintenance that I just put it in a bun pretty much everyday!

  571. kellyjo walters
    August 6, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    I’m loving your style, it’s something I’d love..
    I had a hair disaster last year where a ‘hairdresser’ mutilated my hair, she chopped off 21 inches on the left side of my head!!! yes it was still that long on the right!!.. she also thinned it so that it was literally see through, you could see my scalp and my neck!!! ..
    I’m still growing it all back out now and I’ve been too scared to go back to a hair dressers .. I’d love this tho to really sort out my hair once and for all :)

    What an amazing prize! And I love your new hair Ruth – it really suits you and you look so happy with it. I’ve just had to change my hairdresser (he moved to a men’s barbers and I couldn’t follow) and I had forgotten how hard it is find someone who “gets” your hair and what you’re trying to do with it – especially as I’m not very good at explaining what it is I need doing!

    Please let it be me. Me me me! Friday 11th is my birthday. I’ll be 44 which has neither the optimism of 40 nor the sass of 50. It’s just meh. Like my hair right now. I need sexy hair. Kids and life have absorbed me (quite happily obviously, I am no whingebag) and I can’t remember how I want to look. Or how I’m supposed to look. I go into shops and can’t work out whether stuff is too short or too sexy or to old and too fuddy duddy. So I just leave said shop and go and buy more lipgloss. Sorry for the essay. Fingers crossed.

    Hi Ruth, I LOVE the hair! That length and style is so modern and fresh and the colour really does lift you! I have been admiring @katcutsme’s work for a while, seeing what she did for @pixiwoos and now yourself! I am in a bit of a hair rut myself so would love a fresh take, not to mention I have not coloured my hair for about 15 years now, I used to be very adventurous but got more scared the older I got. Anyway, good on you for taking the plunge, it inspires all of us that a change now and then is a good thing! x

  642. Livia
    August 7, 2017 / 10:12 am

    I can’t help but to always feel envious when people speak about hair makeovers; I had shaved head for nearly theee years, grew it out for years and then made the mistake of using henna on my hair and now I am simply too scared to go to the hairdressers after reading all the horror stories of people who have attempted to cover the henna. You do look absolutely amazing though with your new hair !

    Yes a cut and colour can make a huge difference. I haven’t cut my hair in two years, and it’s down to my waist! I haven’t coloured my hair for 7 years now. Really wanted to have a more manageable length and minimal styling but my baby decided to come early before my hair appointment. My baby is now 2 months old so I feel more confident I can leave her for an hour or two to cut my hair. Desperately need a makeover! Yours looks amazing! X

    Ruth – I’m glad that your new hairstyle has perked you up and you’re right its so hard to have a cut and colour that you’re completely happy with! x

    What an absolutely fantastic makeover. It’s so pleasing to see a tired mum get a well-deserved uplift.

  680. August 7, 2017 / 11:18 am

    I would really love to win this! My hair has been the same for about 6 years now and I haven’t found a hairdresser to trust enough or can afford to take it to a new level and different style. My hair is looking really flat and yellow so after seeing how beautiful your hair is after the revamp, I would love the chance to make mine look just as great! Crossing all my fingers and thank you for doing such great giveaways Ruth! x

  689. Sophie
    August 7, 2017 / 11:43 am

    Would love this! Redken Heavy Cream has saved my hair after a heavy blonde balayage. Would love a new look as my last hair cut to give me a boost didn’t quite go to plan. Amazing prize! X

  690. Sophie Mcafee
    August 7, 2017 / 11:48 am

    Oh my goodness, I never enter competitions, but I’ve been promising myself that I’d visit a really good hairdresser for an overhaul for about 5 years… this might actually be the only way I’ll ever do it! x

    August 7, 2017 / 12:13 pm

    Having had baby number 2 a week before you had Ted, my hair is lucky if it gets brushed so in real need of some TLC!
    I’d love some good advice on what would suit my hair and face shape as after my last attempt at a drastic change didn’t go according to plan…I was hoping for the Rosie Huntington Whitely long bob but looked more like Dill the Dog from the herbs!

    August 7, 2017 / 12:15 pm

    Amazing prize and an amazing blog. I had twins a couple of days after you had Ted and watching/instal stalking you and Caroline Hirons has kept me sane during the endless feeding hours, a massive thank you for that!

  697. Kelly Wilkinson
    August 7, 2017 / 12:16 pm

    Yes please, I also need a boost as I lost loads of hair after having my baby a year ago and only just having it grow back in now!

    August 7, 2017 / 12:25 pm

    You look stunning as always Ruth! Finding a hairdresser that knows exactly what will suit you and when to suggest something a bit more outside your comfort zone is so difficult, as you say it is so rare that you come away 100% happy! I would love to win a refresh safe in the knowledge that I wouldn’t end up with an orange mullet…!!

  702. Olivia
    August 7, 2017 / 12:28 pm

    Oh my god yes please!! I’m a London based actor, so good hair is a must, and I’ve been instastalking Kat and Melanie for AGES.

    August 7, 2017 / 12:36 pm

    Such a lovely unique prize! I’ve been thinking about getting the chop for a while but barely let anyone touch my hair so I’m never sure who to trust. I always find your reviews and recommendations to be honest and fair so I feel like I’d be in good hands!

  707. Joanna W
    August 7, 2017 / 12:42 pm

    I’ve more or less had the same hair for about a decade, give or take a fringe…. I desperately need to make a change!

  710. Tammy
    August 7, 2017 / 1:04 pm

  712. Jemima

    A deserving mother of two,
    Would love to win this prize.
    My hair doesn’t know what to do,
    And would kill for a new guise.
    Greying at the roots,
    Brassy to the tips,
    I don’t have enough loot,
    To make my hair all hip.
    If I could win this dream,
    It would save my hair from disgrace,
    And brighten up my day,
    My month, my year, my face.

  713. Lucie
    August 7, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    Wow, wow, wow!! I need this….lank lifeless hair and the white/silver hairs are starting to come in. Save me!! Thank you for the chance to win :) xx

  714. Madii Sieradzka
    August 7, 2017 / 1:35 pm

    I can’t stand looking at myself ever since I had my toddler 1.5 years ago… don’t have the time or money either to go to a proper hairdresser. Fingers crossed I win.

  715. Emma
    August 7, 2017 / 1:38 pm

    Wow. Amazing prize. As someone on a continuing health regime to try and feel better about myself this would be a wonderful prize. 6 stone/4 dress sizes down but still a journey. I’ve learned that how I feel about myself directly impacts on how I treat myself. The better I feel the better I take care of me. V hard at times – especially at the moment. Losing my mum suddenly a few weeks ago has impacted. But trying.
    Hair is the ultimate in making or breaking how we feel.

    Thanks for this competition. And your general advice on all things gorgeous!

  720. Kirsty
    August 7, 2017 / 2:05 pm

    You look wonderful Ruth – the cut really suits you and the colour has an amazing boosting effect! Just need to be brave enough to try something different myself! Fingers crossed!

  721. jb
    August 7, 2017 / 2:05 pm

    Ruth, your new hair is amazing, if only a cut would do that to me. I have recently been mistaken for being 14yrs older than i am. 14 YEARS!! i need a hair restyle obviously.

  722. Nicole Freeman
    August 7, 2017 / 2:06 pm

    August 7, 2017 / 2:33 pm

    Great prize! Good timing too as I’m about due my annual hair cut (only go once a year as I would rather go to the dentist than to a hair salon!!), plus it will almost be my birthday AND then I’m going on a big holiday! X

  726. Alex
    August 7, 2017 / 2:44 pm

    Such a fab giveaway Ruth!!

    I am 32 weeks pregnant and enjoying my thicker and shinier hair but well aware that this will change once the baby arrives!!

  727. Sarah
    August 7, 2017 / 2:47 pm

    This would an incredible treat for me. After long term relationship coming to an end and not being able to afford colouring my hair for over 10 years I could do with a new look!

  728. Nicola

    I’d love this – In 2 months I’m leaving the life I’ve built in Ireland to go back to the UK to start a new adventure and hopefully build a new life. So this would be an epic prize as I’ve had the same haircut/style for 17years if not longer.

  730. Lucinda W
    August 7, 2017 / 2:55 pm

    Loving the new chop! Would be great to have a refreshed style.x

    Would absolutely love to win this. Just became a mum for the second time to baby Annabelle which I’m loving but the sleep deprivation sometimes takes its toll. (I type this drinking my 4th coffee of the day so far!) I have medium brown curly hair which I always wear straight but blow drying with 2 is a challenge most days. A trip to London would also be amazing, would totally surprise my husband in his office with my new do!
