As I write, (in our production meeting in the ELLE office), there is one member of staff sitting next to me with a freshly coloured fuchsia ombre 'do. I'm going to ask her - in a whisper, we're in a meeting, remember - if she'd do it.

Claire: *shrugs* 'Sure!'

Me: 'To work?'

*Splitting hairs. Get it?
