With balayage firmly a thing of the past, its cousin ombre is making a soft return, telling Cosmopolitan that "sand art inspired styles will be huge."

With one of her most famous clients Kim Kardashian previously revealing she only washes her hair every five days, it seems Atkin is keen to spread the word to more women about avoiding over-drying your hair's natural oils by washing it too frequently.
