One of my favourite things about coming out of winter and entering early spring is the growing number of daylight hours and the promise of warmer weather. There’s something so much more optimistic about waking up after dawn has risen and knowing the partnership with your heavy winter coat is coming to an end. It’s that optimism that we celebrate in Style & Living this week, courtesy of bursts of colour in a bright dress or a sherbet-shade lingerie set, and the added spring in your step that a lighter men’s shoe provides. As for my own spring essential, that’s touching up my hair for the summer months ahead. Thank goodness for Josh Wood’s miracle Blending Wands, which just made my life a whole lot easier. I promise: try it and you’ll be hooked.
Touching up your roots in between visits to your hairdresser just got easier. M&S has teamed up with celebrated hair colourist Josh Wood to launch an exclusive range of Blending Wands. Available in four colours, they work in minutes: simply apply the product to wet or dry hair using the brush applicator, blow-dry to set and you’re good to go. The results last for up to three shampoos, and the best part is the £12.50 price tag.
