Hairstyles to try in the New Year...
Inspired by the '70s revival and popular celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss, a new shorter length is set to be the standout hairstyle for 2019. “I think we will see a move away from shattered and layered hair towards a blunter, sharper finish", says influential stylist and Ghd ambassador Zoe Irwin. "I envisage it being a shift away from the mid-length boyfriend bob, which was so popular last season, to something more precise and above the shoulder, roughly halfway between your ears and the nape of the neck."
2. Grey hair
Age-inclusivity has finally blossomed in the beauty industry, which means individuals are not only dying their hair a fashion-forward silver but are embracing their natural grey hairs too.
If you cast your mind back to the early noughties, you might recall the army of woman who embraced polka-straight hair. Now, love it or loathe it, it's back!
4. Glossy hair
The impossibly smooth and super shiny 'glass hair' finish trended on Instagram towards the latter end of this year, and in 2019 it's set to make it mainstream.
Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton suggests blow-drying your hair with Color Wow's Dream Coat Spray to lock out frizz, before rubbing in a few drops of shine serum - like Keune's Satin Oil Treatment.

Winter Hair Care Tips
Winter is wrecking your perfect hair game. Here’s how to stop it.
1. Switch to an oil-based moisturizer to lock in extra moisture
Blasts of dry air are not good for any type of hair. The only way to combat it: extra moisture. “Natural, curly, wavy, relaxed, and coiled hair is sensitive to cold weather, when it’s prone to brittle texture, breakage, and split ends,” explains Ron Williams, national educator for Phytospecific, who suggests using a heavier-than-usual oil-based moisturizer that will evaporate more slowly to protect textured hair.
2. Use leave-in conditioner to combat static
Floating, fine strands are a common occurrence during winter, which is a key sign of dryness. We advise that, instead of the static guard/dryer sheet route, be sure hair is hydrated with regular conditioning, then lock it in with a leave-in conditioner.
3. Never go outside with damp hair to bypass breakage
Although time is of the essence in the morning, it’s critical to dry hair thoroughly before dashing into the cold. Anything that’s cold expands, and that’s what can happen with your wet hair shaft in the cold weather, which puts you at risk for breakage and makes your color fade faster.
4. Use dry shampoo for limp hair
There's nothing worse than styling a fresh 'do in the morning, only to take your hat off to a crushed style and limp, sad winter hair. This is especially an issue for those with oilier hair. To revive your style, carry a small bottle of dry shampoo with you, apply a small amount at the roots, and zhuzh your hair. Dry shampoo opens up the hair shaft, keeping hair fuller, and bringing back life to your hairstyle.

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.
