Ten high street hair heroes that might be flying under your radar

Ten high street hair heroes that might be flying under your radar

Ahead of the IMAGE Beauty Festival High Street Beauty Loves session on May 25, with celebrity make-up artist Christine Lucignano, we look at high street heroes that’ll give us healthy, shiny hair

 


Spending a fortune on colour, cuts and in-salon treatments is great, let’s be honest – if you can handle the price tag. In between salon visits, though, there’s always room for budget hair care to step up and help out.
