Whether you’re a deft-fingered DIY stylist or your hairdresser’s most regular regular, achieving the perfect coiffure is a tricky business requiring research and preparation as much as creativity and skill. And where better to look than in the pages of your favourite magazine. Here's our pick of the crop (sorry!)
