I DON’T know about you, but spring is my favourite time of the year; I just love the slow trans­for­ma­tion of ev­ery­thing be­com­ing pret­tier! Here in the salon we’re busy get­ting ready for the new styles of the sea­son, with all the in­di­ca­tions lead­ing in two dis­tinct di­rec­tions.

Two trends are emerg­ing; the first a fresh, nat­u­ral look­ing, al­most ‘wash and go’ slick look, achieved by a com­bi­na­tion of oils, creams, gels and mousse. This nat­u­ral-look­ing ‘glam’ hair trend is go­ing to be so­phis­ti­cated and very luxe!

The sec­ond style is for hair that is curled, waved or straight­ened, where tex­ture and shine is the key, as re­cently favoured on the red car­pet by celebri­ties such as Mila Ku­nis, El­lie Gould­ing and Rita Ora. Braids and hair ac­ces­sories such as rib­bons and bling are mak­ing a come­back too, with a va­ri­ety of styles avail­able to ex­press in­di­vid­u­al­ity.

Most women pre­fer a sub­tle and nat­u­ral-look­ing hair colour and it’s cru­cial to pick colours that feel nat­u­ral against your skin tone and eye colour. In the salon we’re in­creas­ingly us­ing a va­ri­ety of del­i­cate con­tour­ing tech­niques, be­spoke to each client, to cre­ate the de­cep­tion of light and shade. By us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of free­hand and high­light­ing meth­ods we can avoid harsh lines or ar­ti­fi­cial look­ing colour place­ments and cre­ate depths and tones around the face, en­hanc­ing the client’s best fea­tures.
