Here's our top of the tips rundown so far:
Adam Reed and Paul Percival have spent the last week buying wooden toothbrushes by the barrel load.

The Sausage Bob at Clements Ribeiro
Don't fancy going for the chop? Sam McKnight's faux bob at Clements will prove to be your saviour. Braiding a small underneath section to create an anchor, he pulled the rest of the hair back into a baggy pony, tied an elastic mid way down the tail and wrapped it around a styling sausage. A quick nip, tuck and pin at the base of the neck followed by a spritz of Pantene Classic Hairspray and you can cheat your way to short.
