The middle part, is the best part..

Being a girl that always had my hair to the side even with a fringe I even rocked a comb over at one stage:) I have a new found love for parting my hair in the middle thanks to the stylists here at foxandbow they have wicked hair ideas and I have transitioned to parting my hair in the middle and they have made it so easy.

Some of my fave hairstyles at the moment are middle parting with ponytail. This is an instant update to your hair you can tease out some hair for that “oh this”? I just threw this up.

Long hair this style is so feminine. 

Sleek simple Ponytail is a great way to spice up your ponytail  and when you have secured with elastic or hair tie ”we recommend invisi-bobble to avoid breakage” wrap a section of hair around the ponytail and secure with a hair grip. day to night look if you are looking to keep hair off your face. 

I have a middle part now with a fringe and I really do love it Megan has been styling it for me and there are so many different styles you can do with it yourself at home, ask your hairdresser for advice even the smallest change makes a huge difference if you feel stuck in a hair rut.

This is a great way to wear hair if you are outgrowing a fringe. 

The middle part is my fave part at the moment xx

Here Olivia has gone brighter and the beach wave sets off her outfit, she is the epitome of a classic girl that hits all the bases.

This style works great when you have greasy roots and sleeked middle parting. From head to toe Olivia always hits the nail on the head from the awards, FW, or just hitting the streets of New York.

My biggest search on Pinterest is Street style, I always get my hair and fashion Inspo. Walk around your city any given day and I bet you will admire someone you see. The best time for fashion and hair Inspo is fashion week and you will find it on the streets of Paris, London, New York and Milan.

Loving how she is working this outfit and hair, just hanging out on the phone looking cool as you do.

How cool is this look, full fringe just really sets this off. You could be halfway between thinking ok I could look like I was helping my friend paint her gaff and running straight to your nearest salon to get a fringe in..

Suki Waterhouse: Hair Check!

05-beauty-instagrams-sukiwaterhouse

I am a tad obsessed lately, (no thats a lie) I am obsessed with Suki Waterhouse, she rocks that signature sixties mod girl style. Suki prefers a blow-out to a drink, she is not wrong in that you feel like a whole new person when you get your hair done professionally. 

Suki was discovered at the age of 16 in a pub in London, ”obviously having a lemonade”. Her career has taken off since then but she is endearing and works everything she wears like the perfect hanger. She has featured in Vogue Magazine and is the face of Burberry and launched their new fragrance. 

Some of her Hair Check! moments I love ..

A women who cuts her hair is about to change her life

In the words of ”Coco chanel” getting your hair cut or opting for a change is life changing for us girls.

Gail made the brave decision to go short, pixie short and we love the end result.

BEFORE:

IMG_1601IMG_1599

Thinking about cutting your hair up when put into action can be very daunting but exciting, Gail was in the best of hands with Carol and Caren to put her at ease.

Carol brought Gail’s hair up to three and a half shades lighter, this will suit Gail’s skin tone better and it has light reflectors and shades of warmth pulled through to give it that shine, the ending pro’s to this for Gail is getting longer now out of her hair colour and this is a win,win. To get the best possible condition and time out of any hair girls is treatments,:)  I cannot express how important it is to maintaining condition and shine and for Gail we recommend Kerastase Chroma Captive, this is specially formulated for semi & permanent colour to prolong the colour shade, because colour treated hair is more sensitive this is a wonder product.

The mask in this range treats the fibre intensively to prolong the colour in it’s most perfect state whilst intensifying shine.

Caren then began the process of cutting Gail’s hair and we love, love the end results. With colour brightening up Gail’s skin tone and the cut has completely transformed into a fresher look and with a bit of Short Mania by Kerastase styled through at the ends, she was ready to rock this look.

Thinking of going for a change you do not have to see the whole staircase  just take the first step and we at foxandbow would love to be part of it.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF SALON CONSULTATIONS.

To get the very most out of your consultation with a stylist and your salon experience be open and honest, communication is key. You often hear a friend or someone you know say ” I do not like my haircut” ”I can not manage it” We at foxandbow do not want any client to feel like this, so we will be honest about what is manageable for you.

Some Tips when you are thinking of having a new cut/colour now or in the future. Requesting a cut that you simply wont have the time to properly style at home, whether it be too time consuming or does not suit your life-style. Same goes for colour, if you think you will more likely come in every six months ( instead of typical 4-6 weeks) then we suggest a colour that is best to what you want but requires less up keep.  Be honest, if you like a particular celebrity’s style, what is it about him/her can you identify with? Hair type? appearance? Style? Try not to overwhelm yourself with pictures pick your 3 pictures and the stylist can determine the common denominator to narrow it down to figure out what it is you like and can suggest a variation that is best for you.

 

TRUST your stylist, remember that they are  a professional whose job it is to make you look good and can fit in with your lifestyle.  Do not be afraid, we want to get to know you and all about you not just you’r hair..

Rapunzel Foundation

We are honoured to be registered as one of the 200 salons across Ireland with the Rapunzel foundation. This amazing foundation started in 2009 when a mother was growing her hair to send to New Zealand towards her daughters wig. Here an idea was born and now it has grown and is a foundation that not only gives wigs for children and adults but gives confidence, confidence to live life uninhibited  without fear of dancing, swimming and playing sports.

It takes between 15 and 25 ponytails to make one of these special wigs, some people organise to be sponsored when they are having their hair cut, which helps fund the wigs for people. The salon cuts the hair free of charge and we had the lovely, sweet Eva Mc Cormack yesterday who has been growing her hair for this Foundation and smiled the whole way through and we think she is a superstar.

The Rapunzel Foundation is supported by Wella and The Irish Hairdressers magazine and Salons Nationwide, if you are interested in fundraising and growing your hair for such a worthy cause check out this link.

We had another very brave young girl yesterday in the salon who after seeing the Rapunzel foundation on tv decided ”I could do that” and donated her ponytail for this amazing cause, for these young girls to make such a grown up decision still amazes me. Meet Kelly, fearless and brave.

You got this Sis 🙂

15” of hair Kelly has donated to give towards a wig , it takes 6-10 ponytails to make just one wig.
