‘When asked what my best piece of advice is, I nearly always reply with: “if in doubt, wash your hair.” On the one hand it’s flippant, even trivial. It’s just a reminder that it is always worth taking the time to do the little things that lift your mood.’
Anya Hindmarch – mother of five and the entrepreneur behind one of Britain’s most creative brands — admits that it can be a struggle. Sometimes she has pulled it off, sometimes not. In If in Doubt, Wash Your Hair, she shares – openly, honestly, humbly: as a friend to a friend, as a mother to a daughter – what she has learnt, what she worries about, and the best pieces of advice she has gathered on the way. Wise, self-deprecating but above all kind, this thoughtful and uplifting book shows a vulnerable side to a woman who appears to be successfully juggling it all. It aims to make women feel better about themselves, and also to be deeply practical, rooted in an understanding of how women’s lives really work – and how we can work towards leading our most doubt-free lives.
