12 Valentine's Day gifts that will have you turning heads
Look – revenge hair has its place. After a bad breakup, there’s nothing quite like a fresh cut and colour to signify a clean slate, and if your ex-significant other ends up stalking your Instastories or sliding into your DMs with the heart-eye emojis (which of course, you leave on read), even better. But why is it that we splash out at the salon when we are low-key spiralling, and forget to treat ourselves when everything’s fine?
Translation: you shouldn’t need a special occasion to show your hair some love, but if it helps, embrace the excuse to do so this Valentine’s Day. Single?

If you’re the coupled-up one? Well, just make sure the above excursion is followed by a lengthy stop at your beauty mecca of choice. Stuck for inspiration? Here are a few of our favourite things, to start you off …
