The hot start to October brought in an unexpected stampede of short haircuts! We were using tea tree and mint shampoo to cool off and invigorate hot scalps and hot collars. Tea tree and mint conditioner works very well as a foot soak too at the end of a long day.
With the children safely back at school, the last of the summer holiday makers came in for pre holiday cuts and colours. Blonde highlights, white hair coverage and short easy to manage holiday hair were still in demand in the first half of October.
This was mixed with other ladies continuing with the autumn look of deep jewel tone colours for their hair. Ruby pinks to blood reds, Amber honey browns, Tigers eye mixes of gold’s and browns and Amethyst violets catch the light beautifully on electric and fire light evenings.
Brides that have opted for autumn or winter weddings have been coming in for their rehearsals that were booked in the spring. Classic nape chignons and high glossy buns -simple elegance, weatherproofed with creamy polish and/or hairspray.
October and November are popular times for PERMS. Yes, they're alive and very well thank you. We're perming short, medium and very long hair on twentysomethings, middle aged and retired ladies. I'm tempted to have one myself maybe in January when there's more time! I predict the "flake advert" girls' hair is making a comeback - like Janet on X Factor- so feminine and so easy once you've survived the torture of the perm itself! The method is pretty much the same as it always been - but we do try and keep everyone as comfy and dry as possible. I recommend you take a snack or two for the process, we’ll provide the latest mags and non stop beverages. A perm followed by our Global Keratin conditioning treatment makes the hair deterioration the most minimal since perming began.
Gents quiffs are adding real style to haircuts. Leaving length on the top front allows us to play and find the quiff that your hair wants to do. Could be to the left or right or straight back whatever way it wants to go -go with it! Shaping cream or wax will hold the look. They look great for nights out. And gents, why not patch test for colour next time you have a cut. No obligation, but it opens up a whole new world. We have natural, subtle and impact colours for you with comfortable, quick techniques. Camouflaging those pesky, fuzzier white temples is very popular, easy and effective. Or, why not try some darker or lighter strands of colour just because you can?
Christmas hair appointments are building up now with Gel nails added on. The high gloss, long lasting, hard as nails before you leave the salon nail colours are such a welcome breakthrough. No more smudges before you get home. One appointment for nails and they're perfect for 2 weeks at least. Great for over the busy Christmas period. If you're thinking of 3D lash extensions, lash tinting or lash perming for Christmas, now’s the time to have your PATCH TEST.
