Anti-ageing skincare: 3 steps to prevent and get rid of wrinkles

Short bob hairstyles have been a last-minute takeover trend of 2019, likely to continue into 2020 — and they’re really messing up my plan to grow my hair.

To help me decide whether to go for the chop or keep growing I thought I’d try out some clip-in extensions* to see if long hair would look as good as I pictured it to in my head. (SPOILER: It does).
