A week before going away I start pre-packing; pulling out things to take with me and putting them on top of my case. I then go back to it the day before I go away to look at colours and the looks that I’m going for. Colour tones are important when packing, I choose lots of bright colours and metallics that will go well together and mix and match them all.
I love wavy beach hair so I try to leave in the texture I get from swimming in the sea and just add ghd Smooth and Finish Serum (£14.95 ghdhair.com) to smooth over the ends and add definition.

Lastly, if I’m aiming for full-on glamour, I like going for a slicked back low bun with a centre parting.
Try to look relaxed, not awkward when standing in poses – I’m a big fan of arms in the air!
