We asked reader Lola to tell us a little about her style… and about her amazing hair! 

Lola says:
Some people say that teenage girls are under a lot of pressure these days, but I don't think that's it - I think it's just that we like to look nice! I suppose I spend a fair bit of time and money on fashion, beauty and hair… I enjoy it, and I want to look good. Teens do get judged for the way they look, especially by people with different style choices, but that doesn't bother me - I dress to please myself and the way I look is just the way I am! I think that some teens who choose to look different from the crowd can get bullied, and that's not good - if I could change things, I would make it so that everyone could follow whatever style they want to.

My hair is completely natural… it's very curly and I suppose it is my trademark look, but it's easy to style. I just brush it through every morning and put some serum through it and that's it - done! I like my hair, but sometimes I like to have a change, and about every six months I will straighten it… it lasts for about four days. Other people love my hair and are always asking if they can touch it… I'm happy that people like it!

My hair is dip-dyed blonde at the moment - my mum did it for me and I am really happy with it. I once had loads of cane rolls put in my hair - little braids - and that was great. I haven't really had a disastrous hairstyle, although I did have a very short haircut when I was about eleven. I cut so much hair off - it could have ended up very badly, but it was actually loads easier to manage and I loved it for that reason! My hair does take ages to wash and dry, and I do spritz it a little every morning to make it easier to brush through… the ends get quite wet, though! I use Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner. You could say I have a love/ hate relationship with my hair, but all the hard work is worth it in the end!

Cathy says:
I am SOOOO envious of Lola's awesome hair… it's fabulous! Do YOU have a feature you really love - or hate - about yourself? Or one that is part of your signature look? COMMENT BELOW to have your say!


  1. Lola's hair is amazing! I wish I had hair like that!:) Hamdi:)xxx

  2. I was born with silky hair and I like it short but I wish it either had more volume or was MESSIER!!! Other girls complain of tangles but I like to be different so I like it when it looks windswept. I wouldn't mind having curls.
