Owner of Babu Hair and Beauty on Marchmont Crescent,Edinburgh 35-year-old Leanne took the plunge to open her own salon 10 years ago and has never looked back. From styling, cutting and colouring in salon to up dos on location at events, she knows the importance of good hair.

Signature style?
Changeable, I love soft bohemian style but can sometimes be into classic more tailored looks.

Favourite place to shop in Edinburgh?
I'm a sucker for a designer handbag so I love Harvey Nichols but I can also always rely on Zara to find something I like to wear.

Top hair styling tip?
Choosing the correct brush style and barrel size for your hair will make or break your blow dry. The smaller the brush the more curl and body, the larger the brush, the straighter the hair.

The hair trend you love most for AW16?
Knots are chic and effortless so play around with your lazy Sunday.
