Razor sharp cut worn to the side this is a great cut if you are looking to take the bulk out of thick hair.
If your hair is naturally curly then this S/S embrace it.. If you have not worn it natural in years then take insp from TOWIE beauty Chloe Lewis.
Tip: invest in a diffuser

I smell a colour update so, Christmas is way behind us we can now embrace lighter shade steps on our future visits to the salon. Especially as the weather warms up.
Brunettes can go richer from darker hues to lighter hues. Brunettes can be smooched by the sun as well.
Platinum – still a firm favourite but you have got to protect your hair to maintain shine instead of dull hair with this colour.
Sun smooched blonde- The colour thats like your back from a tropical beach and not behind a desk.
Natural- Let there be roots , even the colour you were born with . I myself have been going this route thanks to Michelle and I am loving the results as Balayage gives you the best of both worlds.
Just some visual inspo should you girls need any
Woke up with no time or patience to do your hair we have all had those days! Meh!!
By using your fingers to place back into a low bun this adds a soft look , love how the lights pop here.
A low and loose ponytail during the week, even air dry the hair to give it a break from heat styling as in the winter our tresses are exposed more to elements and the aircon in shops and at work.
Love this midi Bun with texture on add some styling product to the hair and backcomb the pony part before pinning up around the head will add volume.
Ponytails may the easiest style around, here is some inspo for switching it up.. The trend seen on the catwalk and on the streets may not be for everyone mind you ‘but’ I adore it and adding the ribbon tre pretty. Again using your fingers instead of a brush to pin back and bonus it is off your face.
if you have longer length hair this braided ponytail and twisted under is another easy style on the go.
Adore the twisted bun with a headscarf all wrapped up in a bow.
I love a messy bun, you know casual, took me a second kind of bun. If you have finer hair use some texture spray to add some grit to the hair.
Keep it modern go for a style that is simple for you give it a try they are surprisingly super-chic.
What it is about a fringe? and what is it about a Micro-fringe?
From the hairstyles rocking on the red carpet I smell a trend for 2018 coming back our way.. Adds eternally cool to your hair look, it may be something to look out for.
Emma Watson has just debuted her micro fringe on her IG and it is nothing short of Dotey.
Feathery,choppy, this is bang on trend and only for the brave. That being said there is always a fringe that suits every face shape.
This look will take a bit of maintenance , bear this in mind that if your a get up and go person in the morning this may not be for you but there is a few styles you can opt for depending on face shape.
The micro fringe is a bold of the fringe fam ! So always start longer if you go straight to the short cut there is no going back! You can always go shorter once your stylist has finished styling your hair.
The short, lob, bob hairstyle is still trending for this Autumn/Winter. The street style from New York fashion week are embracing this trend still, whether blunt, graduated, layered or soft shoulder length is still doing its thing:)
I love the glamour of this style and what it brings. I am a big fan of street style you see the chicest style from hair inspo, outfit inspo. Gone are the days of having to get the inside visuals from the catwalks you are seeing the style on the streets around these shows and its majorly refreshing.
You never know what a new fashion month will bring but we are 100% going to be seeing this shoulder grazing style for a while
We all see these amazing colours and styles on Pinterest and we pin them and say to ourselves I want this and have it stored to show our colourist, or we think maybe I could attempt this myself! “No” !! Please always for any extreme colours going darker or lighter a colourist is qualified and it is not simple to do hair colour..
We want to avoid you feeling like said picture above ^
But, there is no denying you can’t have the colour you are after or somewhere near it listen to your colourist they are qualified for a reason and taking you miles away from your natural hair colour is extreme!
Lets say your hair colour is naturally a light brown and your asking for an un-natural looking black hue or blue-black hue? It is going to be obvious not that you can not go darker but the colourist will know the right shade that works for you and only you.
The most important thing is to emulate your natural shade as much as possible. Maybe one shade darker or lighter at first.
Highlights you’ve seen and have it set in your head that you want sun kissed everywhere!
Highlights are meant to look like they were cause by the sun so over highlighting your hair too light, looks fake.. You need balance instead of super thick stripes or unblended uniform colour!
So’ you’ve chanced a box colour on your roots! The hair along your hairline are finer, so they absorb colour quicker and now you look darker! So a trip to the salon were you could have saved yourself a few bob by booking in for a top up or surround by your colourist.
Think about your complexion, You would never purchase a foundation two shades darker than your skin tone and go out in public! Why would you with you hair. Michelle and Carol always consider the complexion listen to your colourist and all the factors. Believe me you will feel more natural and see how your hair can compliment your skin tone, eye colour, even eyebrows..
You bleached your hair at home and now it is orange! Box colour is not fully able to lift dark pigment out of strands! In a salon the colourist will know the exact amount of peroxide needed (and how long) depending on the health of the hair.
If you’ve made is this far in life without any major colour disasters your luckier than most.
I cannot stress enough, listen to your colourist they have experience and colour knowledge they qualified in this field. Have a consultation when considering a colour change from there you can take the advice and digest it before you decide what to do. We all want it and want it now but in the long run you have to be happy and as long as your hair is done everything else follows.
We want good hair , we want our clients to have amazing hair, we want good hair days #everyday
Bronde- The Clue is in the name! Bronde is a colour technique that fuses brown and blonde to create a sun kissed rich hair effect.
By Blending Brown and Blonde lets you enjoy the best of both worlds. Balayage is always an amazing technique for when you want to go lighter of darker but not high maintenance so win, win and bronde will be a winner for those opting for a change but not drastic ..
So, if you favour rich, natural brunette tones , this is one to try.
Bronde is a technique done best in a salon by a colourist Mochas are perfect for the Bronde look as they are rich and glossy. L’Oreal Professional bleaches have advanced technologies.
How a colourist places bleach to strands is a technique and our girls are masters at colour placement to highlight specific facial areas, to lift and enhance I mean who does not want a hairlift?
Fancy channeling a bit of Parisian Style
If you are on Instagram then you know you will never be stuck for style inspiration. Parisian ladies and men have the most sexy style in the world and below are some IG Parisian ladies to follow.

The Parisian ladies are always minimal make-up, style, red lips and artfully rumbled hair that are the envy of us.. So Je ne sais quoi and give these ladies a follow.
We all with summer love to go lighter and brighter ‘but’ a new wave that has been popular is going back to your roots and not just balayage although this is a great way to ease you into going back to root colour or having a low maintenance colour. I have been colouring my hair so long like most ”Can you remember what your natural hair colour even is”
If you have been thinking about going a darker blonde or adding caramel , coral or tones to your hair always let your colourist know that although you want a dark blonde you are not looking to brighten it up as your colourist will interpret this as something completely different and we can’t have us having the meltdowns so visuals are great when thinking of that colour change.
This is a fab example of dark ashy blonde that is not washed out.
You could always ease your way and start Balayage , actually this would be recommended if you are scared to take the leap at once this way you are easing yourself in.
There are so many shades to suit different skin tones
I have been highlights , bleach, root colour for years and with the help of master of colour Michelle I am going to take the leap and go back to my natural tones saying that I adore the platinum Balayage so I am going to lean more that way. Visuals are great for any change of colour so the colourist can get a fell for what you mean visually.
This is such a fab colour she is ashy blonde and it suits a treat. Colourist have genius ways of adding light or tones to frame the face if you choose or add movement.
This colour has a wide spectrum of shades and we love it
Are you an expecting mom , few in the knows as you are experiencing so many major changes in your body your hair during pregnancy, with the influx of hormones your hair may feel thicker. Pregnancy changes the growing , resting and falling out phases your hair usually go through so you feel like your hair is thicker but this is in fact because you are not losing it.
Your hair grows a lot faster during pregnancy as your body experiences an influx of estrogen.
So a lot of questions we would get asked is it safe to colour my hair”? Our answer to that would be if you are cautious? Consider waiting until the second trimester.
Colouring hair semi, permanent and highlights are safe during pregnancy because this small amount is not considered harmful to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Highlights are not placed onto scalp they are placed onto individual strands of hair therefore not absorbed into the bloodstream. Always tell your hairdresser and they can chat with you regarding any concerns you may have.
So you now you’re a Mom and you are experiencing hair loss, some women more than others will lose a lot of hair but please don’t stress this is so common. This is because you Estrogen levels take a tumble usually happen around 2-3mths after having baby. Please know this is temporary and be gentle with your hair through this phase and take care of your hair until normal hair growth resumes which takes up to 12-mths.
Avoid tight hairstyles , pulling or styling the hair too tight. Be careful with heat try a heat protection product if blow-drying etc. sometimes these can not be avoided but when you are in salon with your stylist try a treatment regularly to help care for new hair.
Try some supplements , Vitamin B Complex – this is an important Vitamin to reduce hair fall post pregnancy for hair proteins like keratin.
Omega-3 – Fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids are essential for healthy hair.
So if your expecting or just welcomed your bundle of joy home I hope this was helpful.
Your hairdresser is always on hand to help ease any concerns you have.
