“My biggest money-saving hack ever.
“I get my hair cut and dyed for £5, which is unheard of. Like I have friends who pay £200, £250 to get their hair dyed.
“What I do is I go to Sassoon Academy. It’s in Central London and they teach other hairdressers around the world how to cut hair like Sassoon.
“So for that teaching, they need hair models. So, when I first moved here six years ago, I joined a Facebook group where you just book on for an appointment.
“And I’ve had so many different haircuts because it’s so cheap and you can change it all the time.
“So today I’m going for a haircut, and I want you to come with me. So at the minute, I’ve got this sort of slicked-back, blonde bob and what I’m going for is a pixie cut.
“So it’s taken about four hours, but now I’m out of the hairdressers with a pixie cut. Can you believe it?
