Playing with proportions is key in fashion this season. Not content with puff sleeves or ra ra skirts, designers have taken it to the max this autumn—just think of the Bernard Chandran dress Estelle wore at the MTV Europe Awards last week. If you want an inexpensive route to fashionista status volume is also all the rage as far as hair is concerned. From the rock bouffant dos on the catwalk at Christian Dior to Cheryl Cole's recent foray into 70's glamour puss hair; big is back with a vengeance.

It's time to ditch the straightening irons and opt for gravity-defying creations. Would you work this trend?
