Give Your Hair a Rest
As stylists we love to try different styles, colours and cuts. However, during this time we are mostly staying at home. We are slowly getting used to not worrying about appearances. This gives us a chance to allow our hair to grow naturally, especially since we usually subject it to daily styling and frequent processing. This is a good time to give your hair a break and start retreating it by doing some masks and maybe wearing it more natural.
Repair and Replenish Your Hair
Why not give your hair a treat at home? Hair masks can help to repair and add nutrients to your hair and there is no better time to do so than on these long days when you are at home.
On a sunny day after washing your hair, coat it in a replenishing mask and sit in a warm area for up to an hour or as long as possible. If you don’t want your hair to dry out, wrap it in cling film or put on a shower cap. Here are a few of the repairing products that we use in the salon that you can try at home.
Cutting Your Fringe at Home
We have been closed for a while now and your fringe will most certainly need cutting. Our top tip for cutting your own fringe is not to cut it wet. We think it is better to cut fringes and bangs when they are dry. When your hair is dry you can see your real length. If you cut your fringe wet, you might cut it too short because of "the shrink factor” - wet hair is heavier and will be longer than dry hair.
Not confident enough to cut your fringe or bangs? Why not grow them out? This will give you a new look and save you from having uneven hair. Our top tip for growing out your fringe is to style it right. After you wash and condition your hair, use a round brush or a roller to keep it in place. If you are staying home, allow your hair to dry naturally. If you are an essential worker we recommend that you use a low heat setting on your hair dryer to dry your hair. Using your roller and round brush will create volume and cause your fringe to shrink.
Colouring Your Hair at Home
Colouring your hair can be a messy job and if you are not used to doing it you might be tempted to do so yourself. We don’t recommend that you do this unless you are certain about the type, shade and colour your hairstylist uses. We use pure colours and natural shade colours that give you maximum coverage.
If you need to leave home and would like a solution for grey roots or temporary coverage, we suggest using a professional temporary hair make up or colour touch up like L'Oreal Magic Retouch. These types of hair colours come in various shades and tones. You can find them online and sometimes in the chemists.
We miss you all and hope you are keeping safe. See you soon.
