Fresh New Hair Style With Our Fresh New Team

The summer is a great time to try out a fresh new style. This is especially the case if you are someone who has the summer holidays off.  We’re talking to you parents, grandparents, child carers and those working or studying in schools, colleges and universities.

You can be brave and go for that hair colour, hair cut or hair style you have always liked the look of. You then have the summer holidays to get used to it. If you love it we can book you in for a hair appointment to touch it up again. If you still don’t feel brave enough we can change it before you go back to work.

We have the perfect fresh new team for your fresh new style in Sawtry.

While Ally and Bev have been with us for some time now and are much loved by our clients, we’ve added some fabulous fresh talent to our team. These come in the form of Lisa and Miranda, our new Style Directors. All of our team are still backed by the wonderful Emily who is our superb salon assistant.

Bringing in new talent to our hair salon in Sawtry brings new skills, experience and techniques for our clients. If you’re thinking of trying out a fresh new hair style this summer why not book in for a hair consultation?

During a hair consultation with our new team you’ll get input from all the experienced hair stylists who can recommend the best hair options for you. Think Tattoo Fixers when the tattooists all design their idea and the client chooses the best tattoo for them – it’s just like that, but with hair!

Ally has been with us for 5 years and has worked at other successful salons in Peterborough before joining us. Lisa has worked alongside Lee Stafford. Miranda is dedicated to ensuring her clients love their hair, so their hair loves them and Bev has been with us over 25 years. Not forgetting Emily who has been with us for a good few months now and adds great value to the customer experience.

You will get the input, experience, ideas and latest techniques from all this talent – ensuring you can have that fresh new hair style that you’ve dreamed of.

What Is Hair Colour Correction?

We’ve all been there at one time. We want to try out a new hair colour. While we usually go to the hairdressers, we have decided this time we will do it ourselves. After all, it can’t be that hard? Plus, it’ll save a few pennies too.

However, this can sometimes lead to a desperate or even urgent need for hair colour correction in Huntingdon. Perhaps the colour has come out too dark, too light or a massive spot has been missed. We have even seen some cases where the wrong hair colour was in the box and therefore our client had the wrong hair colour result.

What is Hair Colour Correction in Huntingdon?

Hair colour correction is needed when the hair colouring goes wrong. It will often happen when a boxed hair colour is used at home, or an inexperienced stylist tried something new. In some cases hair colour correction can be done in one or two steps. However, some hair colour corrections will take several visits to the salon.

This is because the hair needs to be protected. Rapidly lightening your hair colour can cause severe damage. We would always recommend that if your hair colour goes wrong that you call the experts. Here at Rumours Hair we have helped many clients with colour correction in Huntingdon. There is no need to be ashamed or embarrassed.

If you try and repair the hair colour yourself you could end up causing more damage to your hair. We will work with you to protect your hair, while helping you achieve the right colour. In many cases we will work to a middle shade to give you a colour you aren’t ashamed of. Then we will book a follow up appointment with you to take your hair to the right colour.

How Long With Hair Colour Correction Take?

It is almost impossible to put an exact length of time on a hair colour correction appointment. This is because it depends on the original colour and condition of your hair. We then need to look at the colour it is now and what colour you want it to be. In many colour corrections will take a few hours. However in other cases it will take one long appointment or a series of smaller hair appointments spread over a few weeks.


If you’re thinking of doing your hair yourself to save money, it might be worth waiting a while. If you can book in with a professional hair colourist then you may find you end up saving a lot more money! This is especially the case if you’re going for a big colour change.

Top Tips For Protecting Your Hair in the Summer

During the warmer and sunnier summer months our hair can be damaged in a variety of ways. These include the harmful rays of the sun, sweat, humidity, sand, chlorine, lack of hydration and so much more. In this blog post we have put together some top tips for protecting your hair in the summer months, whether you’re holidaying abroad or enjoying time in the UK.

  • Love Your Conditioner – This is the hair care product that will help restore some moisture in your hair. Make sure you choose a conditioner that matches your hair type and texture. If you’re going for a dip in the pool pop some leave in conditioner in your hair before you go for a swim, and wear a swim cap if possible. This will go a long way in protecting your hair in the summer.


  • Shampoo Carefully – Shampooing your hair every day will do more harm than good. While it might be tempting to wash your hair after a sandy day at the beach, or a sweaty picnic in the park, we recommend you don’t. When you do shampoo your hair, make sure you shampoo the scalp, not your hair.


  • Swimming – A dip in the pool will help cool you down in the warmer weather; however it could damage your hair. As we said before, put on leave in conditioner before you jump in. Do not shampoo your hair before swimming as this will take the protective oils out your hair. After a swim have a quick shower to get some of the chlorine out of your hair.


  • Avoid Heat – The sun is giving your hair enough heat. Anymore and you will definitely cause additional damage to your hair. Go low and slow on your blow dryer if it is absolutely required. Try and use as little heat products as possible and air or towel dry wherever possible. The less heat the better when it comes to protecting your hair in the summer.


  • Maximum Fluids – Drink lots of fluids. Not only is this good for you in the hotter weather, but it is good for your hair too. Your hair and skin will benefit from being hydrated so make sure you keep drinking those fluids for your health and the health of your hair.


  • Deep Conditioning – Your hair will become dry and brittle over the summer so a deep conditioning treatment on your hair every now and again will come in handy. Your hair will love you for it and you’ll quickly notice the difference.


  • Post Holiday Trim – Towards the end of the summer holidays make sure you book in for a trim. Your hair really does take a beating in the summer. A quick trim will get rid of the dry and split ends, and you’re hair will look and feel healthy again. You could also book in for a hair treatment top give your hair that added love it needs.


Have a great summer. We can’t wait to hear your summer plans at your next hair appointment in Sawtry.
