Dame Judi Dench's hair secrets
Find out how one of our greatest actresses achieves her short, soft-edged style
Oscar-winning actress Dame Judi Dench's elegant hairstyle may be the easiest-to-handle hair in showbusiness. Stunning, sophisticated, feminine and soft - the styling is complete in a couple of steps. The key to this look is the cut. Joey Battisti, artistic director at Paul Labrecque East calls it a soft crop. It's actually cut with a razor to keep all the ends very 'soft' and not hard-edged. If the cut is right, the rest is easy. Check out the steps below to achieve this simple style.
STEP 1: Wash your hair using a volumising shampoo. Towel dry and apply a spray-on conditioner to add shine.
STEP 2: Separate the ends of the hair with your fingers. Emulsify a dab of hair wax in your palms and apply it to pieces all over your hair - but not at the roots. You can lightly blow dry if you like, or you can let hair dry naturally.
