You always want to keep that fresh from the salon hair colour but if someone could tell you how to maintain it and have it for that little bit longer.. Girl yes please 🙂
Colour does fade this is true but colour can be maintained and we want our hair to grow that is without a doubt, healthy hair grows!
I always feel my colour has changed over time from shampooing but I have also noticed since I started using salon products recommended to me I have gotten longer and this is a hallelujah in between colour service.
Highlights, balayage or any bleached hair do not really change extremely but you are stripping the hair of its natural pigment to achieve certain colour. your colourist will always tell you the right shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask to use , they are not making a sale believe me they are salon made products for a reason. They will be your saviour , like skin products I certainly would never go without my moisturizer for my skin why would your hair go without it!
Highlights will fade slightly over time ‘but’ having the right products and having a toner service in between colour service. We offer a service called foxytone in salon and any bleached, highlighted, balayage hair girls should avail of your colour will be fresh and pop to see you through until your next appointment. Toners do not last forever so every couple of weeks will I promise be your saviour.
Colour does not rinse out it oxidises that is why you are seeing colour fade, precaution to prevent this to shield hair from fade avail of these services in salon of tone , having the products you need out of salon to hand these will save your hair.

Looking for shiny and rich brunette hair this summer heres some of our faves I hope it gives you some inspo..
Styling your own hair to suit you, whether you have always had it long , short, a fringe, tried all the shades of colour on a whim because lets be honest we have all wanted to be blonde one day, brown, highlighted , dip-dyed and we were gonna attempt it ourselves.
I will just pop into the chemist and put a box colour in, feck it sure isn’t the girl on the box fab and look you get a free conditioner #winning
I was 16 and after a summer of sun In does anyone remember the sun in? well ‘ this product you spray in your hair and it develops with a blast of heat (hairdryer stuck to the head) going out feeling like Buffy the vampire slayer! Swearing to your mom the sun was giving your burnt sun kissed hair.. I have memories of going home with my first box colour and swearing to my mom there was no peroxide in it! so me and my friend headed up to the bathroom and after two hours admiring my yellow, orange hair in the mirror and my mom comes in and reads the ingredients and starts screaming ”your hair is going to fall out” ah jesus your father ‘lets hope he does not notice’!! To be honest my father followed the rule of ”Ask your mom” so I knew I was grand! So at 16 and looking back now I was mad but we all have the colour disasters. Right?
Having the right colour and style for you makes such a big difference I mean we all wanted to look like Jennifer Aniston and have her famous haircut she deputed on Friends.
But, to my horror now ! and it does not suit everyone so you leave the hairdressers after insisting you wanted the Jennifer cut with 5 million layers and not a clue what you were going to do when you washed it yourself!
Any who! getting the perfect hair consultation is essential when you want a change. The colourist and stylist both take into account many factors , face, natural hair colour, face shape, hair texture, how you can manage it. So, you leave the salon confident and happy.
Do not use a box colour , it is not worth it!
Get advice on products , salon products are not sold in a supermarket for a reason many reasons. To be clear, this is in no way to suggest that supermarket products do not say what they say they do. But! Typically contain chemicals that which can strip your hair that you have spent money in the salon perfecting. Salon products are years of research and development by hairdressers themselves that know about what hair needs.
The key is to choose those with more high-grade ingredients and fewer chemicals like www.kerastase.com and pureology.com and many more salon products that are tailor made for different hair requirements and colour treated hair created for professional colourists and stylists and their clients .
We have all heard of highlighting, contouring and strobing. We have all tried to master it with our make-up so the terminology has now passed over to hair.
Hair Strobing- Individualized highlighting that is specific to ones hair, colour, face shape and skin tone.
Lighter skin/ fair skin have pink undertones and darker your skin, the easier you can pull off intense colours.
Hair strobing highlights where light would naturally hit the face.
So using lighter colours to emphasise specific areas of the face. As spring is here before summer hits think of this for your next colour appointment.
Always use a recommended shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair specific to you to condition and conserve coloured hair.
The girl that we all wanted to see on the night was our own Ruth Negga, nominated for best actress in her role in Loving.
If theres an evening that has Hollywood glam, its the Oscars and Ruth in the bold red Valentino Gown looked glowing with a victorian twist to her dress it worked.
Before they hit the red carpet they spend weeks if not days getting Oscar ready and even hrs on the day off the finishing touches just like us gals heading out on a Saturday night. 🙂
Some gave us a look inside their day on they’re social media which is a bonus = tips and tricks please

As four weeks of fashion week kicks of in NY there is plenty of inspo away from the catwalks. We get to see first hand what the lovely ladies in fashion and blogging are wearing to the shows.
So as the shows heat up so does the style on the streets rushing back and forth between shows. Day 3 has shown some great hair and fashion.
Our colourists quite frequently come across a client that is having trouble with dry, damaged, frizzy hair that has a green tinge and they do not know why this is happening.
Do you live in a hard water area? if so, then the problem lays in your water. Although it is tested not to be bad for your health it is bad for your hair and sometimes skin.

Hard water is water that has a high mineral content, hard water over time creates a scaly film on the hair. This in tail prevents moisture from entering the hair resulting in dry, dull, tangly and a strange colour in the hair.
So we need a solution? This is the advice from Michelle & Carol, they recommend a water softener it is a great but expensive way to solve hard water worries. While installing a water softener is expensive believe me it is extremely useful.
A less expensive solution is a shower filter a cheaper alternative which can reduce lime scale. There are many different types of shower filters that can attach to your shower unit.
The last option would be to use bottled water for the final rinse when washing hair.
These options will save you having the worry of discoloured hair that is unruly and adding a mask to your routine we recommend the Kerastase Soleil range it works very well for preventing elements in our environment damaging hair.
Organ Oil added before styling will leave hair super shiny and will moisturise hair.
You need water to shampoo your hair and hard water makes it harder life is hard enough.
