Hair Trends Autumn & Winter 2017

Thought about the latest hair trends?

I don’t know about you but I like to change my hair, a lot. There are so many amazing colours and styles that sometimes it can get a little overwhelming. Straight, wavy, long, short, hidden rainbows, galaxy hair (oh so many pretty colours!) But can your hair stand all this change?! Chances are that if you see a well educated colourist and stylist the answer is yes. If you DIY… then probably no.

I have scoured the internet to find out what is going to be hot in the hair stakes this coming autumn and winter and let me tell you, there are some stunning trends coming up next season!

Lets start with Futuristic Geek Sheek. No, I’m talking robots with glasses on, I’m talking blonds so platinum there sparkly silver or beautiful smoky brunettes. And how about styles, well you could go for a sleek icy bob with a full fringe or let it go au natural with some glossy beachy waves.

But if Geek Sheek isn’t your bag how about some Punky Streaks! You could go for what ever colour or colours you fancy! Put them all over or maybe place some round your face for some funky face framing. If you were wanting to try different colours but didn’t want to invest in the up keep of these amazing colour choices you could always spice things up with some rainbow inspired hair extensions. Gigi Hadid was rocking these neon yellow extensions in the Versace show at Milan Fashion week!

Face Framing is the new contouring! Forget make up its all about the correct placement of highlights and lowlights to shape and enhance your features! They can be as subtle or as bold as you like! So if you fancy a very soft change to your colour then face framing is probably a good choice for you. Choosing colours that are a couple of shades lighter or darker and placing them round your face can bring light and illumination to your cheek bones or really make your eye colour pop.

Wedding Preparation

Wedding Preparation Timeline

Preparing for your wedding day can be the most exciting and the most stressful time of your life! We have put together a selection of wedding beauty prep words to ensure you take some time out to relax and ensure that you look like a glowing vision of beauty gliding down the isle to the love of your life, which will (hopefully!) make him or her say WOW!

5-6 months before

This is the best time to set aside 1 day a week where the two of you are banned from mentioning the “W” word. Sit down to a film and a glass of wine and relax!

Thinking of a change of hairstyle? Discuss any changes with your stylist now but don’t go too drastic unless you have a set plan of how you are wanting your hair and make up to look on the big day.

A lot of Brides tend to leave skin care to the last minute. Book regular monthly facials to ensure your skin is fresh and glowing, you certainly don’t want a massive breakout appear the night before the wedding! Eeeek! (if you do get a spot on the day what ever you do DO NOT SQUEEZE IT! Its easier for your make up artist to cover a spot than a big angry weeping crater!)

3-4 months before

Unless your using your regular hairdresser you should really be looking into finding a stylist and make up artist for your wedding day beautifications, and booking trials in. Go on Pinterest and Instagram to look for hairspiration and get an idea of what you would like. Remember not all styles are suitable for all hair types so get a few ideas and run it by your hairdresser to get his/her input.

Fancy a sun kissed glow to compliment your wedding dress? Book a trial spray tan in for the next few weeks. SiennaX do a range of different strength tan solutions, there’s a tan to suit even the fairest of complexions.

1-2 months before

Have a trial run of your hair and make up. Wear something a similar colour to your wedding dress as this will give you an idea of how the light will affect the overall look.

If your wearing a veil don’t forget to take it along to your trial appointment!

If you don’t already have a professional beautician working on your brows book an appointment for a brow shape.

If you are doing your own make up make sure you have all the products you need and start practising now.

A tip for whiter teeth on your wedding day: Cut down on tea, coffee and red wine now. Start using a whitening toothpaste or book in with your dentist for a professional teeth whitening treatment.

2 weeks before

You should have your final hair cut and colour appointment this week! Remember, no drastic changes!

Exfoliate and moisturise, paying close attention to your hands, feet and elbows.

Drink plenty of water, this keeps the skin hydrated and fresh looking.

Confirm all your wedding day appointments!

1 week before

Avoid all those naughty snacks! Salty foods and alcohol can dehydrate your skin. Carrot sticks and cucumber, nuts and seeds are yummy healthy snacking alternatives.

You should have your final brow shape and all waxing done this week ready for the wedding night and honeymoon!

And why not treat yourself to a massage with your last pre-wedding facial. Absolute bliss!

1 day before

EEEEEK its nearly there!
Water, water, water, drink plenty for beautiful skin!
Pack your essential beauty kit and chuck in a mini sewing kit. (you can never be too organised)

Head to your manicure and pedicure appointment!

In the evening have a nice glass of wine, and long soak in the bath. RELAX!

Wedding day!!

You made it! After months of preparation the day has arrived to get MARRIED!

Make sure you wear a top you can easily take off so you don’t ruin your beautiful wedding do.

And HAVE FUN!

Christmas Party Sparkle!

The season of festive fun is upon us and work do’s are in full swing. Make sure your party ready with our 5 top tips for ensuring you look fabulous from dusk till dawn!

1. If you are curling your hair for the night, ensure you use a product that won’t let you down. Tecni.ART Pli. This thermo-modelling spray adds shape fix, grip and hold. This product is perfect for giving you volume, bouncy curls and long lasting wavy blow-dry’s.

How to use: – Spray liberally onto towel-dried hair. For a more volumised look, lift sections of your hair and blow-dry upwards, or use heated rollers once dried. For more creative looks and tighter curls use a heat styler.

Always use a heat protector before applying heat to the hair we recommend L’Oreal 10 in 1

2. Nothing looks better in a little black dress than beautifully tanned legs! Our Sienna X spray tans are divine! Choose from a full or half body spray. With the 8-10 hour developing tan or the quick 4 hour Tonight’s the Night tan you can be as organised or unorganised as you like!

Glitz up your tan with a spritz of L’Oreal Mythic Oil Shimmer Spray! It smells lush too!

3. Another top tip this time for chip free nails. Now I don’t know about you but as soon as a have normal polish on my fingers I know I have a day or maybe even a few minutes before I have ruined them.
Gelish polish however is dry as soon as the treatment is finished meaning you can get on with the rest of your pre party beautifications. And the huge choice of colours means that there will be a colour perfect for your evening!

Good Gossip is my festive go to colour! Red and sparkly!

4. Who wants to faff around with sticking on lashes that will be half hanging off by the end of the night! Book in for a full set of Standard or Russian volume lashes for dramatic volume or subtle enhancement of your eyes that will last week’s not hours. Please note a patch test is required 48 hours before application of lashes.

5. Finally… Smile, laugh and have fun, feeling confident that you look blooming amazing!

We are getting very booked up in the salon so if you want us to get you party ready this festive season then give us a call ASAP! Merry Christmas everyone! 01444 410576

What are Nano rings?

Nano rings are 90% smaller than standard micro rings, the Nano ring hair extensions are secured in the hair using a TINY undetectable 2.5mm Nano ring meaning you get a more natural result! This type of hair extensions is a no heat, no glue, no sewing method. They are kind to your hair and quick to fit!

The hair that we use is 100% Indian Remy human hair, the hair can last up to 6 months or more if cared for correctly. Remy hair means that each strand of hair is laid in the same direction as the natural hair growth. So when the hair is taken from the donor it is carefully laid in the correct direction from root to tip. Indian Remy hair has its cuticle layer still intact. This is important for hair extensions as it helps to protect the hair strands from the elements and environmental damage, meaning that your hair extensions will look amazing for the lifetime of the wear.

Our double drawn hair undergoes a very slow and gentle colouring process that takes a full 3 weeks, this process is normally reserved for very expensive ‘top end’ hair and means that our hair quality is unrivalled at this price point – typical hair at this price point is coloured in 1-2 days. This is a very harsh process for the hair and affects the quality & longevity considerably.

Our hair extension specialist Yasemin is qualified in many methods of hair extensions but now wants to focus on the Nano ring extensions, as the quality and look is the best she has ever found.

She can offer hair extensions from 18” all the way up to 24” so you can have the long thick flowing locks you have always dreamed of. To book your colour match consultation please call us on 01444 410576

Flutter those lashes

Lash lifting is possibly one of my favourite treatments! A more updated version of lash perming, lash lifting actually lifts the lashes rather than the traditional curling method. This means that the length of your lashes is retained and can actually make them appear longer!

 

This treatment is perfect for clients that love longer looking lashes but don’t have the time for lash extensions; it can be done in your lunch hour! This treatment also includes a lash tint so even with no mascara on; your eyes will look beautiful.

Our L’Oreal DiaLight semi permanent colours can turn your brassy locks into a soft golden or funky ash tone. Meaning you can have a change, without getting rid of the blonde, the colours are nourishing for the hair too.

 

A patch test is required at least 48 hours before any colour can be applied to your scalp. Book in for a consultation with a stylist and take a look at the colours on offer!
