We enlisted Sunsilk's Australian stylist Daren Borthwick — who has tended to the tresses of Katie Holmes, Delta Goodrem, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Rose Byrne; the list goes on — to show us how to create a runway-ready faux bob at home. Although the style works best on medium to long hair with layers in, as you'll see in the video, it is possible to create on mid-length hair so have fun experimenting with the look at home! Keep reading for the how-to.

Aussie stunner Delta Goodrem turns 27 today! The singersongwriter landed a record deal at the tender age of 15 and shot to worldwide recognition after playing Nina on Neighbours. But at 18 — at the same time as having a number one single and album in the charts — Delta was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. She handled the battle with steely grace that was way beyond her years and the entire world watched as Delta battled her way through. Now fit and healthy with a new love interest in singer Nick Jonas, we chart the singer's beauty looks through the years. Have a good one!
Sunsilk has called upon some of the best hairstylists and experts in the biz to help co-create its new range, aptly called Sunsilk Co-creations. Hailing from New York, London, Paris, Tokyo and LA, the seven experts have created ranges for pretty much anything: thin hair, straight hair, damaged hair, shiny hair, frizzy hair, men's hair, long hair, coloured hair. You name it, they've got a shampoo and conditioner for it. Maybe even a styling product, too. Between them they count Naomi Watts, Drew Barrymore, Agyness Deyn, Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively and J.Lo as clients so you're in good hands. What do you think about it all? Have a little scroll through the entire range and let me know if you like the fancy new packaging, too. I do.

The hair direction for Alice McCall's Spring/Summer 2010-11 show was "not overdone, natural and approachable." But she still has edge. She's chic and not to be underestimated, according to Jamal Hammadi who created the style using SunSilk Addictive Brilliant Shine Wax and SunSilk Hold Spray. He said to think of Peggy Guggenheim hanging out in Morocco. Here's how to re-create the gypsy look at home . . .
STEP 1: Part hair in the middle, wet it down and comb in a light shine product or leave-in conditioner.
So I told you about Jessica Alba's shorter style yesterday (though the jury's still out on whether it was the right move for her or not), and now it seems that other stars have taken a leap of faith and ditched their long locks. Chloë Sevigny debuted a collarbone-grazing cut in NY earlier this week and Sydney Confidential reports today that our very our Delta Goodrem has cut her hair in anticipation of a big move to the US. While I'm yet to see a snap of the singer, at least she'll always have Sunsilk's Longer & Stronger to fall back on if she doesn't like her new look.
Rooibos is a naturally-decaffeinated and full-bodied tea that comes from a bright-green needled shrub in South Africa. When the needles are processed they turn red, and in Afrikaans, rooibos actually means red bush.
Not only is rooibos low in tannins, but it has a strong aroma and is one of the most popular drinks in South Africa. In addition to tasting delicious and being an excellent source of antioxidants (it contains higher concentrations than other teas), it can also be used as a toner to reduce puffiness and redness, especially around your eyes.

Every girl about town wants good hair. And there’s no denying that most of us think long, thick and healthy hair is the ultimate.
The trouble is, what with the sun exposure and lengthy styling rituals that most of us put our locks through every day, it’s often hard for our strands to reach their full growth potential whilst still looking lovely.
Well not anymore with Sunsilk’s latest shampoo and conditioner: Longer & Stronger ($4.49 each) which hits stores in January. Delta, the brand’s ambassador, has been using it to build up the strength of her hair and vouches for its aceness.
The whole deal is that it doesn’t actually make your hair grow faster, but it coats each and every strand with a protective layer, helping to reduce breakage and leaving your hair free to grow up to 1.2cm per month. It’s fortified with roobibos to help stimulate growth and calcium to strengthen strands. And I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s the best-smelling Sunsilk product ever, and maybe, maybe just my favourite smelling shampoo of all time. Big call.
