So what are our findings for hair trends 2019?
Whether you chose big and bold, or micro braids, Braiding is being asked for more and more. Positioned intricately,braiding can make a hairstyle change to a 'Floaty, Ethereal,Summer meadow' look. Alternatively,feeling fierce? Braiding could be the envy of the 'would be '21st century Vikings' amongst us!! Whatever you chose,adding a braid or two can bring you totally 'on trend ' this season.
2. Grey hair
Well, we wrote about this in winter 2018/2019 and the trend for grey hair doesn't look like it's going anywhere any time soon. Silver grey,Charcoal grey ,''50 shades of grey'' (Well we had to put that one in!). Seriously, If you fancy a 'change to grey' ( Some us 80's chicks will know that one!) ,why not book a consultation? Toners (non permanent) over blonde may be just the job to give you a totally new look for the summer.
It seems that you're loving your hair accessories .And it doesn't matter about our age. Those annoying clips our mother's would put into our hair before we went to school .Only for us, as soon as their back was turned, would take out and leave in the bottom of our school bags ,seem now to be in vogue for all of us. Pink, blue ,tortoise shell, you name it . Using clips will give your hair a splash of colour and a real playful 'summer' cuteness.
4. Smokey Pink and Multi colour
Pink is taking on a whole new 'wow' with Smokey Pink. We like to think of it as Pink gone a little more 'grown up'
Balayage .Brunette to chocolate plum, Mid tone to peach. Balayage is proving mega popular!. Balayage uses a specialist technique to create the look and it seems lots of you are loving the look.
Summer Hair Care Tips
Start summer with a trim to get rid of any split ends.
1. Shield your hair from the sun.
We all love the look of sun kissed, tousled hair. So if you are loathed to wear a hat ,the next best thing would be to treat yourself to a shampoo and conditioner with a UV Filter. Keune have created a product especially for 'sun stressed' hair .Helping to keep your hair looking it's best .It has Shea butter and a UV filter included,so you can be sure that your hair is protected.
2. Treat yourself to a 'high quality' conditioning treatment
None of us want to start the summer with 'central heating' dry damaged locks. Having a 15 minute, in house, Salon treatment such as Smart bond,or ,one of the professional quality conditioning masks we offer, will leave you astounded by just how good your hair 'really' can look! Best of all -They are highly affordable and a great addition to your pre holiday hair!
3. Eat Healthy
Believe it or not ,eating healthy is one of the most important things we can do to keep our hair is 'tip -top' condition. And with Summer salads, juicy strawberries, and all the luscious 'al fresco' food the season brings, It's so easy to treat our hair from the inside out.
So go on, pack your shopping trolley full of the fabulous fruit and veg. So delicious especially at this time of year!
Oh, and don't forget your nuts and seeds, which can be high in Omega 3 fatty acids- A great feed for your hair!
4. Visit the Salon
We don't know about you but,most of us here were brought up with our parents,especially the ladies of the house, looking forward to their next appointment to ''get their hair done''. Knowing what an uplifting, 'feel good' experience it is .It isn't only about the finished product but it's that very special time ''just for you''.
We know that our clients,every single one of them are 'EXTREMELY 'SPECIAL. So the weather may not always be 100% this Summer, but treating yourself to an extra visit to the Salon will pep you up and bring on the 'sunny weather' inside of us all. Visiting the Salon can be a real 'tonic'! You leave feeling like a 'Superstar' .
And of course we mustn't forget the men in our lives. Our in house barbering service has proven that once a gentleman has visited us ,they prefer and appreciate the salon experience, just like us ladies!!
Well I never!!

Brighten, tighten and rejuvenate your skin with one of our specialist facials.
Using only the best Decleor products, we offer a wide variety of facials to ensure the best treatment for your skin type.
Wash in Lukewarm Water Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter, but when you can, particularly when just washing your face or hands, choose lukewarm water to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin.
Moisturize Immediately Afterwards Your skin not only needs more moisture, but moisture right after you wash. Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin. Keep a bottle near the bathtub, shower stall, and at every sink and use liberally every time you wash.
Protect Get used to wearing gloves and scarves to protect skin from cold winds, rain, and snow. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen. Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer sun, so apply a safe option like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to any exposed areas.
Drink We tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.
Exfoliate We often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter, particularly on our hands. Yet moisture can’t get in if the dead cells are too plentiful. Find an exfoliating mask and use it on your face and your hands, as well as gently on your lips, then follow immediately with moisture to truly see a smoother difference. Exfoliating body washes are also helpful in the winter months.
