Suits you sure..


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 and 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 . 




Due to salon expansion as we at Foxandbow are growing, a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there. 

Are you a senior Stylist/Colourist and have worked in all aspects of the hairdressing industry then look no further! 

We are looking for an experienced, creative, positive and passionate Senior Colourist/Stylist to join our team. Experience with L’oreal an advantage but not essential.
