Why You Should Visit Us Regularly

If you’re looking to maintain healthy hair, vibrant colour along with strength and growth – you need to see us regularly. We would recommend that you visit us for a hair appointment in Huntingdon at least once every four to six weeks. There are loads of benefits to having a regular haircut in Huntingdon for you and your hair. We have shared the top three benefits below so you can see why you should visit us regularly.

  1. Healthy Hair

Having regular hair appointments in Huntingdon will keep your hair in its healthiest possible condition. Adding a hair care treatment on too when you have your hair cut or coloured will keep your luscious locks as fresh, beautiful and healthy as possible. Dependent on your hair type, we would recommend a visit to our hairdressers in Huntingdon at least every 4 to 6 weeks.

  1. Vibrant Hair Colour

If you have chosen a hair colour that you love, it’s only normal that you want to keep it look vibrant and fresh. Why not come back every 4 to 6 weeks after your hair colour appointment in Huntingdon. Our hair colourists can help you keep your hair as stunning as ever with root touch ups, a toner refresh or a quick trim. We keep a record of the colour formula used to ensure your hair colour dazzles and shines with vibrancy and freshness.

  1. Strength And Growth Promotion

If you visit our hair salon in Huntingdon regularly then this will encourage strength and vitality in your hair. A regular trim every 4-6 weeks will also promote the growth of healthy, strong hair. Our hairdressers will trim off any week or damaged hair and broken tips. Split ends can quickly work their way up your hair strands if they are not managed, cared for and maintained correctly. Regular haircuts will help avoid this.

Put A Spring In Your Hairstyle

Spring is coming and the sun is shining – now is the perfect time to put a spring into your hairstyle. In this blog post we share three top tips for putting a spring into your hairstyle as well as your step. That’s right – when you have fabulous looking hair, you’ll have a great spring in your step.

  • Start With A Trim

The winter has been cold and wet with a dry air. This will have taken its toll on your hair. Now spring is coming, book yourself in for a haircut in Huntingdon. Snip of those dead ends for a fresh finish. There’s no need for a big cut, just a little trim to freshen the ends and make your hair look and feel healthier and shinier too. Our hairdressers will just trim off the dry or split ends to leave your hair spring fresh.

  • Consider Lightening Your Locks

The sunnier days are coming, fancy a sunnier hair colour too? Now could be the perfect time to change from highlights to balayage. The balayage technique is where colour is painted onto your hair in a random pattern. It’s less methodical than the traditional foil highlights and adds depth with a natural finish. By keeping the lighter pieces one or two shades lighter than your base colour, this hair colouring technique can work for all hair types. The result of the balayage technique is a subtle sun-kissed look which is perfect for putting a spring in your hairstyle.

  • Think Rainy Days

While spring brings the promise of sunshine and warm weather, there is also the risk of rain. Make sure you are prepared for April showers by having a raincoat, wellies, umbrella and rainy hair day go-to style to hand. A braided top knot can be a great rainy-day style and it’s effortless and chic. It will take seconds to put your hair in a ponytail, braid it and then twist it around itself before pinning into place. This will keep your hair out of your face and look great throughout the wetter weather too.

The retro curly fringe is back, and it looks incredible. The great thing about getting this fresh hairstyle is that it doesn’t need to be a full transformation. It’s an edgy and on-trend style that doesn’t lose any length from your hair. The retro fringe can be a short curly fringe, a full fringe or a side swept fringe. Our hair stylists will help you choose the right fringe for you and your face.

Rich, Creamy Blondes

Rich, creamy blondes will be huge this spring. The buttery and vanilla shades work with all skin tones. Our hair colourists in Huntingdon will help you choose a blonde shade that create a youthful look to your face and a fresh hair colour that suits you perfectly.

The bob is cut at the jaw level and oozes style and sophistication. The blunt cut fringe at eyebrow level finishes off this stunning hairstyle. We can also recommend any hair care products that you might need to keep your hairstyle looking ‘salon fresh’ at home.

Faded Pastel Colouring

Faded pastel hair colours are another great trend for the braver among us this. It gives you a hint of your favourite pastel shades with less commitment than bolder, stronger and more vibrant colours. Some of the more popular faded pastel colours include pretty pinks, minty greens and icy blue. These colours just add a little blush to your hair, and it will turn heads wherever you go.

The Bob Is Here To Stay For 2022

The bob was the haircut of 2021. Looking at the trends for the year ahead, it doesn’t look like the bob is going anywhere very soon either. Here at our hairdressing salon in Sawtry we have never seen so many requests for the bob. While the traditional bob is still very popular, other styles are growing in popularity too. We have seen changes in length, shape volume and styling from the stars, and this is being requested by our customers too.

If you feel that 2022 is your time for change, then why not go a little shorter with your bob. Going for a shorter bob with a soft line at jaw length works really well. It gives you a nonchalant look with a contemporary edge.

The traditional bob from the 1970’s is a great source of inspiration for 2022 bobs too. This is where the bob is dropped in length, to the shoulder. If you’re looking to keep your bob hairstyle fresh and up to date, then shorter and longer lengths are a great way of doing this.

Celine Dion was recently seen sporting a bob that is shorter at the front and sides. This is a haircut and style that does wonders for the cheekbones. If you have thick hair, this is a really good style of bob to try out too as it creates a great shape.

Some of our clients that come for a hair cut in Sawtry prefer a more punky and contrary style, and the bob can work well for this too. All you need to do is opt for a bob that keeps the edges broken and finish it with a wave. It looks great and is an easy style to keep long after your hair appointment in Huntingdon too.

Why To Visit A Hair Salon For Hair Styling

It’s a great idea to visit a hair salon in Huntingdon for hair styling. The staff at our hair salon in Sawtry are hair experts and professionals. They know the sort of products that are best for your hair type. They know the right cut, style and colour too. When you first visit the salon, you will have a free hair consultation where the stylist will look closely at your hair to understand the texture, condition, roots, colour and general hair health.

When it comes to the right hair cut for you, the hairdresser will suggest a style that is best suited to your personality and your hair routine. They will also take any existing damage, split ends, length, condition and hair texture into consideration too. This will ensure that the new hair cut looks and feels great for weeks to come.

Your hair style and how it looks isn’t just down to your hair, it’s down to shape of your face and your personality too. Your hair stylist will take the time to get to know you and what you want. Do you want something classy and sophisticated, something trendy and modern or a style that stands out and turns heads? The hair stylist can then recommend styles based on your face shape and personality too.

When it comes to colouring your hair, it may seem like a cheaper option to buy a box dye from the shop, but that might not be the best option. Some cheap dyes off the shelf can cause serious damage to your hair. The dyes can also stain your scalp and skin or cause further irritation. While the box may show you the colour you can expect, very often this will not be the colour you will get. This is because the existing colour and condition of your hair can affect the final result.

However, if you choose to spend a little bit more and get your hair coloured in the salon, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’ll get the colour you want. Our hair colourists use branded and authentic products. These products won’t cause any damage to the hair. The colourists are also fully trained and experienced. This means that they know the proportions and combinations to ensure you get the hair colour you want, and a colour that lasts.

Like we said, it does cost more to go to a salon that dye your hair at home, but it is worth it. Not only will you get the colour you want, it will also last longer too. Salon quality colourings and professionally dyed hair does not fade. It will shine for weeks to come.

The Favourite Four Hair Colours Of 2022

Here at Rumours Hair Salon near Huntingdon we work with a lot of clients on their hair colour. From November, right through to early February a lot of our clients choose to change their hair colour. It’s that ‘new year new start’ feeling. So, we felt now was the perfect time to share with you our favourite four hair colours of 2022.

Hair trends wise there is a strong lean towards copper reds, colour mixed brunettes and deep browns. Based on this, we have put together the following four hair colours we know will be popular next year.

  • Copper Red

Coppers and reds were really popular this autumn and our clients loved the copper red shades that our hair colourists near Huntingdon were creating. Both colours blend beautifully together so a really strong and sassy hair colour that will turn heads.

  • Bronde

While bronde might look like a typo, and the thought of mixing blonde and brown together might sound weird – it actually works really well. It has been a really strong hair colour choice for our clients in the last few months and our hair stylists are creating incredible bronde results. Bronde offers a subtle lifting or darkening, dependent on the client’s preference. It’s also a really low-maintenance hair colour that looks great for weeks on end.

  • Espresso Brunette

Meghan Markle has definitely helped with the popularity of the espresso brunette hair colour. It offers a subtle seasonal shine, while adding depth and warmth. Our hair colourists have seen lots of brunette clients move away from balayage and lean towards the simple, but beautiful rich shades of deep espresso brown hair colour.

  • Chocolate Brown

While you may be choosing to cut out the chocolate for the whole ‘new year, new you’, you may want to consider a chocolate brown hair colour. It’s a low-key seasonal hair colouring but adds a little sparkle and shine to a brunette base colour, creating a stunning fresh finish.

Contrasting Colours And Warm Highlights This Autumn

While we can’t believe it either, autumn is upon us. The shops are already stocking up on autumn clothes such as large bags, hats, scarves, big woolly jumpers and thick coats. But is your hair colour ready for the autumn months?

Here at Rumours Hair Salon in Huntingdon our hair stylists are ready to give your hair the autumn colour trend you’re looking for. While contrasting colours and warm highlights may be the colour trend this autumn, our hair colourists will recommend the right autumn hair trend for you, your hair and your complexion.

Contrasting Colours

Dua Lipa and Ruby Rose started the trend of contrasting colours in the summer months, and this has followed on into the autumn and winter seasons too. If you like bold hair colours that really stand out, then this is a great autumn colour hair trend for you. The contrasting colour autumn trend works well for brunettes looking to add some lighter framing to their face too.

If you’re looking to add pops of colour to your hair, this is a trend that you will love. It works well for all hair colours, even with bold and bright shades. The only question you need to ask yourself is if you want hair that will turn heads and grab attention?

Warm Highlights

The second autumn colour hair trend this season is warm highlights. If you’re looking to add depth and dimension to your hair, warm highlights are a great way of doing this. It’s also a classic colour technique that our hair colourists in Huntingdon are very experienced at creating incredible results through.

When we say warm highlights, we want you to think champagne, caramel and honey tones. Move away from the icy silvers and platinum shades of the summer months. The great thing about warm highlights is that they will add softness to your hair too, while giving off a shiny and fuller hair look too.

Making Your Thin Hair Look Thicker

Thin hair is a common problem. Everyone with thinner hair looks at their friends with luscious manes and wishes their hair was thicker too. However, it might turn out that your friends and those thicker hair owners that you admire, also weren’t born with thick luscious locks. Perhaps they have been using some of our tricks below to create the look of thicker hair?

So, how can you go about making your thin hair look thicker too?

Thickening Hair Products

There are thickening shampoo and conditioners on the market that have been designed to temporarily ‘plump’ your hair. Pop into our salon in Huntingdon for a chat with our hairdressers for their recommendations on the best thickening shampoo and conditioners for your hair type. The hair products will give your hair volume and boost, if only on a temporary basis.

Shorter Hair

Book yourself in for a hair cut and opt for a shorter style. Long hairs are heavy, and they can pull your hair down. The extra weight of the longer hair can pull your hair against the scalp which makes it look thinner. A shorter hairstyle emphasises the fluffy and feathery textures of a good hair cut in Huntingdon. The heavy layers of shorter cuts will also add structure to your mane, as well as volume. Any cut above the shoulder will help give your hair volume, but a choppy hair cut is highly recommended too.

Highlights

Highlights create the optical illusion of thicker hair due to the depth that the highlights bring to your hair. Professional highlights create contrast and the illusion of depth. The highlights will emphasise the layers in your hair. They also break up any areas of flat hair colour which in turn helps prevent the limp and lacklustre look that thin hair can sometimes give off. Our professional hair colour experts in Huntingdon can use highlights delicately and well-placed, to achieve the appearance of depth and drama.

These are just three ways of making your thin hair look thicker, but if you’d like some hands-on advice, book yourself in for a hair consultation. Our professional hair stylists will take the time to talk to you about your hair routine, look at your hair and recommend some top tips for making your thin hair look thicker. They’ll share some great tips with you that are individual to you and the quirks of your hair.

How To Protect Your Hair From Chlorine

With gyms and swimming pools reopening and holidays in the UK very much on the cards for a lot of people, the worry of chlorine arises too. In this blog post we wanted to share some top tips with you to help protect your hair from the damage chlorine can do to it.

  • Soak Your Hair

Before you hop in the pool soak your hair with freshwater. This will swell your hair with non-chlorinated water, and it means that the chlorinated water of the pool will be less likely to penetrate it and cause damage to your hair.

  • Swimming Cap

Swimming caps may not ever be the fashion accessory of the season, but if you are keen to protect your hair then they need to be worn.  A latex swimming hat is your best bet as it will keep your hair dry. However, it is important to note that some swimming pool water will seep in under your hat.

  • Hydrating Cream

If you really don’t want to wear a swimming hat, then you need to make sure you hydrate your hair. There are some really good water-resistant hydrating creams out there which you will need to smooth liberally onto your hair after dampening it. One of the best on the market is the Philip Kingsley Swimcap Cream which was originally made for the American Olympic Synchronised Swimming Team.

  • Get Rinsing

Chlorine will linger in your locks. This means you will need to pay extra time, care and attention when washing your hair. It’s a good idea to shampoo twice to ensure all the chlorine is definitely out of your hair. We would also recommend a conditioner that offers slightly more moisture than usual to give your hair that extra bit of care.

  • Detangling Spray

Many of us with longer hair will have a battle against tangles after a dip in the pool. Detangling spray is a great hair care tool for this. Spray the detangling spray or serum onto your hair and then use a wide-toothed comb to gently work out the tangles in your hair.

  • Hair Masks

Swimming pool water that is full of chlorine can weaken the protein structure of your hair. The chlorine in the water make your hair strands drier, less elastic, easily broken and less manageable too. A weekly hair mask can help increase the moisture in your hair to make it more manageable, while smoothing your hair cuticles and restoring your natural hairs shine.

  • Regular Trims

Make sure you keep up with your hair appointments and regular trims. Chlorine will damage your hair so maybe book in for a trim a week sooner than you would normally. This will help keep your hair in great condition. Your hair colour could also be affected by the chlorine, so make sure you speak to your hair colourist in Huntingdon to keep your hair colour looking fresh.

You Deserve Shiny Hair

You Deserve Shiny Hair And Here’s How To Get It

The desire for shiny hair transcends all hair types, textures and styles. We all dream of gloriously glossy locks that shimmer in the natural sunlight and shine throughout the day. The fight against dry and dull hair is real.

Shiny hair is a sign of healthy hair. In this blog post we share our top tips for getting the shiny hair you deserve.

Leave In Conditioner

Hair masks and leave in conditioner are designed to nurture your hair. They do this by locking the moisture into your locks. Purchasing a good quality leave-in conditioner from our hair salon in Huntingdon will achieve incredible results for you, such as stronger, smoother and hydrated hair that’s isn’t tangly. Add the regular use of a hair mask into your routine and you’ll be well on the way to getting your shiny hair you dream of.

Hair Toner

Hair toner is a like a ‘top-coat’ for your hair. However, it has a lot of forms and can offer huge benefits to your hair. Toners are basically semi-permanent colouring products. They are used to enhance the natural toe of your hair. This is why toning your hair adds extra shine and body to your hair. It’s important to note that toning can be a complex process so please speak to our hair colour experts in Huntingdon before attempting it at home.

Heat Protection

The biggest enemy of healthy and shiny hair is heat! While it may seem annoying and time consuming to use heat protecting products before grabbing your heated tools, your hair will thank you for it. The extra effort is really worth it. Good quality heat protection products will create a protective barrier between your fragile proteins that make up your hair and searing heat of your tools. They will also give your hair that extra gloss and shine you’re looking for.

Regular Brushing

Brushing your hair regularly throughout the day with a natural bristle brush will help add shine to your hair. The natural bristles of the brush will help to distribute your natural oils through your hair, which results in healthier and glossier looking hair. Nylon bristle brushes can actually do your hair more harm than good. If you are looking at investing in a new natural bristle brush, we would recommend a boar bristle brush.

Book your next hair appointment in Huntingdon now and we can offer more recommendation for shiny hair, based on your hair type and hair routine.
