Musician Ben Howard's lyrics, "Keep your head up. Keep your heart strong", is a comforting mantra for me these days, as we all get on with the weeks of lockdown.

I've also been trying to re-frame things a little by telling myself I'm not stuck at home, I'm safe at home! If we're going to remember to keep our heads up, why not have our tresses looking as good as possible in the process?
