    If your diary looks anything like ours at the moment it’s probably packed from now until January with work drinks, Christmas parties and various excuses for meeting up with your friends and drinking and eating far too much. Bliss.

    We can’t help you organise your diary, or get you out of an awkward double-booking situation, but we help out when it comes to your hair. More importantly blow drying your hair.

    Style Director James Galvin – of the rather special Daniel Galvin salon in London – popped by Marie Claire HQ armed with a stash of Shu Uemura Art of Hair goodies to show us how to create a bouncy and voluminous blow dry – as demonstrated on our very own Eva Pineda.

    Daunted by the DIY blow-dry? Well you’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to do once you’ve got the knack. So, sit back and enjoy!
