HAIR WATCH TOP OF THE CROPS
Jennifer Aniston apparently hates her bob and is gulping down vitamins to try and make her hair grow faster. Silly girl! Short is chic this summer with some of the hottest babes around - including Kate Moss, Cate Blanchett and Charlize Theron - sporting neat crops. We asked stylist Terence Renati, whose celeb clients include Dannii Minogue, for tips:
If your hair's straight you can go as short as you like - straight hair tends to sit well. After cutting, your stylist should dry your hair, then lightly texturise it to avoid scissor marks. Fine highlights add movement.
If your hair's fine and limp short hair is perfect for you. If you have a square jaw, make sure you have a fringe to soften the look. If it tends to fall flat, go for all-over colour - it boosts thickness by up to 22 per cent.
If your hair's thick and wavy short hair can still look great, but it should be texturised to avoid bulkiness. Keep it manageable by using a shining and shaping product while it's still wet. Rub a small blob of Messy Me, pounds 6 for 100ml (020 7351 3338) through from roots to tips.
SALON ROAD TEST
What is it? Susan Molyneux Ultimate De-Stress Treatment, either in a salon or, if you're lucky, at your home.
Who has it? Anyone who needs a real pampering treat. The celeb list is hush-hush.
Why bother? If you're feeling even remotely tense, 10 minutes sniffing up the aromatherapy oils will chill you out. The top-to-toe element - incorporating a facial, massage and body scrub - means no bits of your body get left out.
End result? Softer skin and a whole new perspective on life. But you'll need to set aside two hours to indulge.
How much will it cost? Around pounds 44. Call 01242 572 444 for details of your nearest therapist.
Lashes should look a whole lot lusher coated in Guerlain's Divinora Enticing Eyes Mascara, pounds 14.50. The specially-shaped brush is designed to give them extra curl - and the gold case is to-die-for.
Cherie Blair beat the heat in a pair of beaded sandals recently. Here's how you can keep your feet fresh this summer.
Soak them in warm water with 5-10 drops of peppermint oil, then buff away hard skin with Christy's Skin Smoothing Pads, pounds 2.25 for 10.
Refresh tired, sore skin with Origin's Step Lively Energising Foot Cream, pounds 12.50 for 150ml. Wintergreen and menthol extracts help to stimulate the reflex points on the foot's surface, easing away tension.
Keep them sweet using Get Fresh Sole Survivors Knock Your Socks Off Deodorising Foot Spray, pounds 4 for 4oz.
THREE OF THE BEST FACE HIGHLIGHTERS
Ditch the foundation - the easiest way to get summer's essential face shine is with a highlighter (think Geri Halliwell and glowing, not an extra from Star Trek). And, according to top session and catwalk make- up artist Aimee Adams, if you can apply moisturiser, you can use one. Here's my pick of the bunch...
Revlon's Skinlights Face Illuminator
Uses the light reflection factor to give skin a glow. The peach light shade
Ultima II's Glowtion Highlighting Souffle pounds 13
Melts on your skin, making it look brighter and fresher. You can layer it using your fingertips for a more intense highlighting effect.
A blushing and bronzing stick in one. Sweep this shimmery colour over your cheek
