Whatever your existing hair length, or the length you want it to be, hairdresser to the stars Richard Ward has all the spring summer trend info you'll ever need.
He says you should look to Marilyn Monroe, The Artist and 1950s pin-up girls for a dose of retro sophistication with a modern twist.
If your hair is long it should be super glossy for a confident look. Choose long, soft layers to elongate the face and encourage natural movement. Wear hair in a centre parting but try to incorporate a strong focal point, such as a long, choppy fringe, to keep it up to date.
Style tip: For a gorgeous 1920s-inspired evening look set hair on hot rollers in vertical sections across the sides of the head. Leave to cool for 20 minutes before removing the rollers and shaking your fingers through the ends.
Take inspiration from Scarlett Johansson for a sexy mid-length look. Effortless waves and curls are a must-have for this length. Tongs and rollers should become your new best friends!
Mid-length hair is slightly shorter this season, for a strong, flirty look. if you're opting for a jaw-length bob ask your stylist to incorporate layers that can be flicked out or scrunched up for added texture. No more graduated bobs!
Style tip: Try using a volumising spray at the roots before blowdrying and then set in Velcro rollers for 10 minutes for movement. Then tong random sections for extra curls.
Wearing your hair short is all about texture and versatility - think Michelle Williams. Cuts should be kept strong and and bold but left with some styling flexibility, incorporating longer layers that can be tonged, curled or formed into finger waves. Short hair looks amazing with a long sweeping fringe.
Style tip: Use a small pure bristle brush for blowdrying. Once dry, comb hair into a deep side parting and tong random sections to create body and movement. Style hair off your face and sweep your fringe to the opposite side of your parting to finish.
