As promised ladies and gentlemen – how to tidy up your husband’s/partner’s hair, courtesy of Marshalls Hair in Newark

With the help of his lovely wife KarenMichael takes  you step by step through the process which, as you’ll see from the recap at the end, in their case included several quick breaks for a sip or two from the whiskey coke, fizz and glass of wine they had close at hand!

Of course if your experience of shaving someone’s hair is limited, you just might want to hold off on the drinks till you’ve finished the final stage…


Fringe benefits

Earlier today, June had a phone call out of the blue from a former business contact, asking for help promoting an initiative the local charity he’s involved with is currently running – watch this space, information on that coming soon…

During the conversation, they were chatting about different ways of keeping your spirits up during the current crisis and something he said really struck a chord.

Yes, everyone needs to safe safe, keep fit and eat healthily – remember that all-important five-a-day rule! – but how about this for another five-a-day you should be adding to your list?

Make sure you’re getting five giggles a day!

With that in mind, here’s one of your five for today from the Girls Around Town with a little help from Michael and Karen of Marshalls Hair in Newark.

Double benefits with this little demo – not only is it guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, it shows you how to tackle that out of control fringe, taking you through what not to do and, more importantly, how you should be doing it!

And for those ladies out there whose husbands’ hair needs a trim, watch this space for more help coming from Michael soon…

A super simple style idea

Thinking about fashion in these troublesome times may seem rather frivolous but what do you think are the chances of June changing the habits of a lifetime?

You’re right – somewhere pretty close to impossible!

And let’s face it, we all need something to take our minds off what’s happening in the world right now, not to mention something to look forward to when our lives finally get back to normal.

Which is why, while the show is sadly off air, the Girls Around Town will be doing their best to look on the bright side of life by sharing stories, ideas, hints and tips they’ve come across recently.

First up it’s a little fashion tip that popped up on the Facebook page of American stylist  Brenda Kinsel recently. It’s super simple but works a treat with t-shirts and tops – June’s totally sold on it so why not take a look and see what you think?

Then watch this space for a few more ideas that June, RosalynRachel and Claire hope might put a smile on your face and a spring in your step…
