Since this is a trend column, I take statistics seriously. After reading Pantone's fashion colour report for spring, I realised that fashion's future is looking bright. This means we should be expecting bold colours such as lemon, green, blue and fuchsia dominating the racks for the next few months.

WHAT'S HOT

Short hair It's much easier to handle in the hot months and won't frizz.

If you really want to take the plunge, do a Natalie Portman (below) and shave it all off.
