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.
