Emma Watson’s Best hair moments…

Emma Watson’s latest role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast out March 16th 2017 and from the trailer has us excited about her part as Belle in the remake of a disney classic. 


Actress and Campaigner Emma launched her #heforshe campaign for gender equality with an impassioned speech that went viral at the UN. Emma has come along way since she won hearts as Hermoine in Harry Potter and we took a step back at her best hair moments which was not hard I mean that face.


Emma rocking the pixie cut this style was fab on her and we all know what a risk it is to have our hair this short. 


Slicked back 


A Baby faced Emma with blonder hair


Faux Bob


Loose waves 


Soft Blow-dry her hair colour is stunning here warms up her beautiful skin tone.


Braided up-style


Gracing the cover of Vogue, Emma will be gracing a lot more covers in the future. 


A darker shade on Emma, this lady is inspiring and I can’t wait to see her as Belle in Beauty and the Beast. 

Playing it straight

Straight hair is back! 

After seasons of tousled, wavy, curly Blow-drys they are still here but we welcome to see the sleek straight hair making its way back.


Best way to have that glossy hair is prep, prepping the hair to have that glossy mirror shine hair. Condition, condition and treatments are a must. We at foxandbow always recommend between colour and cut services treat your hair to a in-salon treatment or at home regularly.

You are giving the hair that added protection when it is faced with heated styling tools. Battling frizz and flyways product when towel dried is a must some little gems are Redken extreme anti-snap to reinforce surface protection from damage or breakage

Some Winter Inspo

Be it wet, swept back styles into a glossy up-style. slick hair can be a saviour for a Christmas night out or even a last minute night out on second day hair.


Love the middle parting tied back into a low bun, some mousse and gloss and off you go.


Side parting slicked back into a bun or ponytail and the bold lip here makes this look wow. Berry lips for winter yes please.





This is a glamorous look and was seen a lot on the red carpet 

Want to accentuate those cheekbones girls this is a great way to style your hair. 

The Cold Never bothered me anyway..

Changing the Tone of your hair colour seasonally – I suppose in the same way we change our make-up and Wardrobe.

With hair colour even going one of two shades to something warmer we have to also switch up our hair products.


Winter is coming and even though we tend to dread it and only because of darker mornings and shorter days. But I do love the fact that cozy evenings in front of the fire and wrapping up to go out are ahead. So, I am sucking it up !!


I think the rose copper is here to stay for winter as it is a fab warm shade. 

We all should use less heat in our hair come Winter, having treatments at least once a week as there will be days when we pop on a hat and like our skin in Winter hair can dry out and lack moisture, so with our skin care our hair care should be seasonal as well. 


Try and wear hair out at least twice a week and monthly treatments containing protein will give your hair the boost it needs to stay replenished . 

Switching over to a more Hydrating family like Pureology’s Hydrate range, I am going to start using this now that my soleil is gone. 


It is literally bringing the spa to your home for hydrating hair. Indulge yourself in peppermint essential aromatherapy fragrances. 

Included in this family is Hydrate whip optimum moisture hair masque. This luxurious masque provides optimal hydration to parched strands without weighing hair down. 



So!!! As sweater weather is coming, it means its time to switch up our hair and hair care.

Innovative Hair Colour..


At Foxandbow our mantra is always hair care and most girls will tell you they have had some major dye-induced damage to their hair in their lifetime. 

Introducing INOA an immonia free in salon permanent hair colour system by L’oreal Professional- INOA is short for Innovation no ammonia. INOA is a hair colour line that replaces ammonia with a “minimal amount” of MEA & oil hence the term ODS which is an oil delivery system.


3 reasons we love INOA – ‘smell, hair reaction and range of colour’. 

Ammonia is used in hair colour to open up the hair fiber so it absorbs dye better, smell is awful so get rid of ammonia, get rid of smell. ODS- oil delivery system- that uses oil molecules to more gently open the hair shaft to absorb dye.


Range of colour, more range and more natural hair colour looks. The ingredients in INOA preserve lipids (natural condition of hair) much better than ammonia can. 

L’oreal is responding to a market that is demanding ”cleaner” hair products. Discover INOA at foxandbow, with the expertise of your hairdresser and an in-depth colour consultation to achieve the perfect shade for you.
