'In order to build the brand I want to build, its scalability is limited if I connect to it,' she said. 

'So I always think: 'How can I grow the brand? How can I separate myself from the brand?' and I think its going to be more its own brand. 

'My dream is that one day no one will remember that I had anything to do with it," she added.

For example, when it comes to using electrical products A-list hairstylist Adir Abergel advises: 'Rather than curling your hair from roots to ends for a perfectly barreled curl, make just a slight wave, curling from mid-shaft, leaving the ends out. Tug on the hair while it's still hot to loosen the curl and stretch out/deconstruct the wave.'

Love Yourself

Authors of Conscious Loving: The Journey to Co-Commitment by Gay Hendricks and Kathryn Hendricks wrote a piece for the website in 2012 titled 'Taking Responsibility for our Relationships'.

'Something unloved lurks at the base of almost all relationship issues. The more each of us gives loving presence to all of ourselves, the more available we become to receive and enjoy the flow of love and harmony. 

'An unloved part of ourselves has a tendency to look like it lives over there in the other person and leads to control and power struggles. It's much easier, more efficient, and more productive to love yourself thoroughly than to try to get others to change.'

Gwyneth's advice – not so goopy after all.
