    Rainbow hair feature
    Can we do it? Please? (Picture: Instagram/allenthomaswood)

    If there’s anything we’ve learnt in 2017, it’s that everyone loves rainbows, and everyone loves hair.

    Especially a combination of the two.

    InterviewWe raise the pitch of our voices around more-dominant people

    So whether it’s hair under our arms or hair dyed to look like famous paintings, we can’t get enough of a good-old-fashioned rainbow hair trend.

    Therefore it’s only natural that the latest – spray-on rainbow headbands – exists.

    Bumble and Bumble stylist Allen Thomas Wood recently showed off his creation on Instagram which he dubbed a ‘rainbow prism headband’.

    And we can see… Read the full story

    Instagram is packed with photos of proats, groats and good old fashioned bowls of porridge.

    That’s because oats are delicious, filling and beautiful – particularly with a massive dollop of nut butter.

    But they may also have a far more impressive quality.

    According to the Donnelly family – officially the world’s oldest family with a combined age of 1,075 years – porridge is the secret to a long life.

    The 13 siblings from Country Armagh grew up on a farm eating local produce, from free-range eggs and bacon to their own home-grown vegetables.

    Maybe baby? (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    When I got back from my honeymoon a few weeks ago, there were three questions that everyone seemed to ask me. 

    ‘Did you have an amazing day?’

    metro illustrationsI really want a baby, even though I'm not ready

    ‘How was the honeymoon?’

    ‘Are you thinking about having a baby?’

    All three of those questions are asked in the same conversation, as if they naturally fit together. Because once you’re married, your womb becomes public property. People suddenly feel like it’s okay to ask you when you’ll be getting knocked up.

    I was warned that this would happen, and I… Read the full story

    It’s Lammas Day today and that means plenty of baked bread and corn dollies.

    The date, also known by the Old English and Gaelic names hlaefmass and lughnasadh, is all about celebrating the first harvest festival and the first grain crop of the season.

    Lammas, which marks the start of Autumn, can be traced all the way back to Anglo Saxon and Pagan times.

    ‘Lammas’ itself means ‘loaf mass’ because of the tradition of baking bread and taking to church to be blessed. The bless loaf would then be taken home and broken into four pieces and used as protection for the newly harvested crop.

    The maximum waiting times in England for non-urgent treatment (which most mental health conditions fall under) is 18 weeks.

    That’s a hell of a long time when you feel like you can barely get out of bed, and you can’t stop worrying.

    What we can learn from the little boy who drew a picture of his mum having her period

    I was recently told by my doctor that I’d have to wait 12 weeks for a second face-to-face assessment. Not even for the actual therapy.

    That’s on top of the eight weeks since I first went to get help, which… Read the full story

    I am a bearded lady and proud.

    My name is Harnaam Kaur, but most know me as The Bearded Dame or The Dame.

    How did I end up with a beard? I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

    One in five women have the same condition as me, and often have to deal with some excess hair because of it, but it’s less common to get a beard.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 12 or 13 – it means my hormones, estrogen and progesterone, are out of balance.

    I noticed that I was growing hair all over my body, my menstrual cycle was not regular and very painful and I was… Read the full story

    The pressure to look ‘perfect’ doesn’t just apply to women, it applies to men, too.

    If your partner doesn't make you come, you should dump them

    While we’ve seen many a side-by-side body transformation photo from female bloggers all over, we haven’t seen many come from guys – despite them also feeling a pressure to look physically perfect.

    However, one guy is stepping up the game by sharing his own body transformation photos in a recent Facebook post. Though his message is a little different to what most would expect.

    My first ever run was one of the hardest things I’ve done.

    Mentally, not physically.

    Wearing an old gig top, pyjama shorts and definitely-not-running shoes, I’d challenged myself to run my first ever mile around a park.

    It’s all about baking bread today – even if you don’t actually eat it.

    Lammas bread is traditionally made using the first harvested grain of the season.

    The idea is that this baked bread is then blessed before being eaten or, as the Pagan’s preferred, being ripped into four pieces and used to protect the crop for the rest of the season.

    Whether you believe in spells and charms or not – making Lammas bread is a bit of fun and fairly simple.

    Here are a couple of recipes for buttermilk bread or a Lammas plait or wreath to try.

    But you should.

    For a long time, Rebecca Heckard felt deeply insecure about the way she looked.

    Rebecca was born with piebaldism, a condition that causes her to have a white streak in her hair and vitiligo-like birthmarks that look like patches of white skin.

    This celebration is known as Yorkshire Day.

    13 pictures that prove Yorkshire is the most beautiful place in the UK
