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 ..
Suki is the Brigitte Bardot-esque beauty of our time.
Wet & sleek can be very cool if done well this season. At Donna Karan featured in Harpers Bazaar a single slicked section gave a sleek, headband-like effect.
Pins, gold clips and luxe leather Fendi & Honor took the Headband route.
Derek Lam Leather Clip
Making waves , my fave hairstyle at the moment . At Anna Sui the focus is on thick texture and kinky movement.
Whatever you are channeling this season, it is not just for the catwalk.
Shoes are not the only thing that can be made for Strutting
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.
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.
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..
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.
Sian Costelloe has been growing her hair forever and decided to donate her hair to the Rapunzel Foundation.
The brave process of giving for a great cause:
Taa daa 🙂
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.
We love the hair kelly and we have a smile with her new do.
