Hair Care During Coronavirus

As we entered 2020, nobody could have predicted that the UK was going to go into lock down just a few months later. The latest regulations and government advice have left hair salons, like ours, having to close their doors. This has meant our clients have been left with cancelled appointments. We have had lots of calls and emails from our clients wondering just what to do and how to care for their hair during coronavirus.

In this blog post we share some top tips for hair care during coronavirus. There are some things we will recommend that you start doing, and some things that we would definitely recommend against.

For example, if you have coloured hair and will be missing your next hair colour appointment, then do not reach for the box dye. Remember when you first had your hair coloured with us? We did a 48 hour colour test with you. This is because people can have allergies against hair colour. It is essential these test take place. Yet, with a box dye this is not always possible.

Our hair colourists are also qualified and fully trained. They have had hair colour training. This means they can select the right colour for you based on your current hair colour. An image of your hair colour on the side of the box won’t tell you the condition of your hair, the thickness of your hair or how the colour will turn out.

Box dyes can also damage the condition of your hair. We use the best quality hair colours at our salon. We also have other hair care treatments that ensure your hair is protected during the colouring. Colouring your hair can damage the condition of your hair. This is even more likely when you dye your hair at home.

If you are worried about roots, we would recommend you reach for a touch-up root spray. These can be the perfect saviour for your hair and roots. The spray will instantly cover any roots, but it will also rinse straight off when your hair is washed.

Without a regular trim you may find you get spilt ends or your hair becomes frizzy. We would highly recommend that you use this time to nourish your hair with hair masks. Ideally once or twice a week, a hair mask will give your hair the nourishment it really needs.

Less people are seeing you while you are on lock down, so try and avoid the heated tools. Give your hair a break from heated tools and allow your hair to dry naturally for a while. If you want to keep longer hair out of your face reach for a soft scrunchie instead of elastic hair bands as these can cause damage to your hair.

Please contact us by email if you would like some more top tips for hair care during coronavirus. Our dedicated hair stylists are currently based at home, but happy to answer any queries you may have.

Spring 2020 Hair Trends

Believe it or not, spring is upon us! It’s understandable that you may have missed the arrival of spring, what with all the awful weather we have been experiencing recently. If you haven’t had the urge to jump into spring with a new wardrobe, then maybe start by switching up your new hairstyle?

In this blog post we share five of our favourite spring 2020 hair trends that we know you’ll want to try yourself.

  1. The High Ponytail

We love the high ponytail and don’t think it will ever not be in style. However, spring 2020 is showing the look is still here to stay. Rihanna has been rocking a blown out high ponytail that looks great. Meanwhile, Laura Harrier has been spotted with a high ponytail of knotless braids that may take a little more effort, but look great.

  1. The Deep Side Parting

The shoulder-length bob is huge this season. It was been spotted all over the red carpet during the award season of 2020. Swap from the standard parting to a deep side parting to really spice up your shoulder-length bob this spring.

  1. The Pearls

While many of us dream of pearl jewellery, the current spring 2020 trend is pearls in your hard. These glossy white beads look fabulous on hair accessories such as hair clips or pins. Yet, they look even better when attached directly to your hair. Lucy Boynton worked this look really well with a string-like line of pearls. Or you could scatter pearls across your braids like Tessa Thompson did recently.

  1. The Flip

We know that the flicking out of the ends of your blow out was very 1960’s. However have you considered flipping the ends of your blow out in? Sophie Turner and Jennifer Lopez are very much running with this latest 2020 spring hair trend to bring this retro style back in. Why not try flipping your ends out, instead of in next time you have a blow out?

  1. Beachy Waves

While it doesn’t feel like spring has sprung, it certainly doesn’t feel like beach days in summer are coming either. However, beachy waves are a big 2020 spring hair trend. The best part of this style is that it’s supposed to look undone. Don’t be fussy when you’re doing it, just use a flat iron for gentle waves in your hair.
