Microdermabrasion at Skye Norman

An amazing non-surgical treatment which doesn’t involve chemicals or lasers.
The aim is to improve the appearance of the skin by removing dead and damaged skin cells, cleansing the skin pores and stimulates collagen production, which leads to healthier and smoother looking skin.
Microdermabrasion can treat many skin conditions such as:
Flaky dry skin
Oily Skin
Age spots
Sun damaged skin
Scar tissue
Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne and acne scars
Hyperpigmentation of the skin
Blackheads and whitehead
Stretch marks
Treatments needed
Most certainly after one session you will notice a difference but I would recommend to have at least 6 treatment sessions to achieve the best results. These treatments can be carried out at 2 week intervals and then one treatment every 6-8 weeks for maintaining the achieved results.
Hope to see you soon

Today’s great debate
Is it ever ok to have roots?
Is it really trendy? or just trashy to have up to three or four inches of regrowth?
We have all done it at some point plus various other celebs and fashionista’s
My honest opinion, Try sort the roots out soon as possible! If you have a different tone band at the roots of your hair. Hair can easily look greasy dirty and unkempt!

The Secret Behind Frankie Bridge’s Glossy Lob

frankie-bridge-feature.jpg

The Saturday’s Frankie Bridge has some of the most sought after locks in the industry. Having been growing out her signature pixie cut, Frankie has recently been sporting a glossier lob style thanks to Gold Class hair extensions.

Ahead of her trip to Australia for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Frankie re-visited Gold Class’ flagship salon Inanch London for a second set of hair extensions.

Opting for a touch lighter this time, Inanch Emir applied a full head of 40cm Gold Class in two shades – Black Coffee and Hot Chocolate; before her personal hairdresser Nick Peters cut and styled her new locks.

Since her original set of extensions, Frankie has followed the Gold Class Healthy Hair Days Philosophy and her own natural hair has grown and looks as healthy as ever.

Fitting hair extensions in varying shades is a great way to add dimension and length to clients who crave longer locks whilst in that awkward in between stage.

 

Get the Look: Rita Ora’s Dishevelled Locks

 

 

At this time of year there’s nothing worse than watching your client leave the salon with your perfect blowdry only to see them step outside and get completely windswept…or is there?

Sexy and dishevelled is this season’s must have texture as seen here on Rita Ora and we caught up with celebrity and session stylist, Jason Collier to find out how to make this look work for your clients.

‘The new ‘windblown’ trend works best on any hair type as it is all down to the products used to achieve this look.

Always make sure hair is parted just off-centre to make this style look un-done and imperfect. This look is all about looking effortlessly chic.

I love to use L’Oreal ARTec Texture Line Control Gel or JOICO Shaping & Finishing Spray. Both give hold and texture but have a soft feel on the hair, and once the hair has been blown about in the wind a few times, these products make it bounce back into shape.

They allow you to work and define without heated styling tools while enhancing volume giving that ‘windswept’ look – just like Ms Rita Ora!’

 

 

The Year in Review: Best Celebrity Hair Trends of 2015

 

This year has certainly been a monumental one for all things hair. From bold colour choices to experimenting with wigs, we look back at some of the trends that shaped up 2015.

The Kylie Jenner Effect

If there was a prize for ‘most hair changes in a year’, it would have to go to Kylie Jenner. From her ever-changing colour to playing around with wigs, not a week passed when Ms Jenner didn’t make headlines with her head-turning hair choices.

Colour Block

2015 was the year for statement colour. We saw Kim Kardashian fill every hairdresser with dread as she drastically (and rather quickly) went from black to platinum blonde, and who didn’t love Georgia May Jagger’s daring unicorn look. Bold colours most definitely took centre stage this year.

A Blonde Moment

Blonde is always a popular choice and 2015 was no different. From the #grannyhair phenomenon to toning things down with the ‘bronde’ trend, there was a blonde to suit every client. Balayage took centre stage at this year’s Salon International and saw crowds in their hundreds flock to see ‘Balayage King’ Guy Tang bring his Hollywood style to London’s Excel.

Short’n’Sweet

When it came to cuts, shorter lengths were the favourite.  From the classic bob as seen on Jennifer Lawrence to the more wearable ‘lob’ favoured by Rose Byrne, shorter styles made their mark this year and are most definitely here to stay.

 

How to: Cheryl Fernandez Versini’s Plaited Bun

 

 

 

This season is all about that show stopping up-do and we love this one seen on the Queen of must have hair, Cheryl Fernandez Versini. We spoke to Gary Taylor from Edward and Co for his top tips on how to recreate the look for your clients.

‘This look is all about the prep! Hair needs to be soft and sleek to ensure a smooth blow dry.  

The Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Soft Glam Smooth Elixir Polish and Light Gloss Holdspray in particular would be perfect for this look. It will help when holding the hair in the nape of the neck before sectioning the hair to form a soft bun.

Form a strong plait with the other section of hair and start to mould it around the bun. Use the plait structure and texture to wrap around the bun and finish off at the parting of the hair. This will disguise any pins and cross over hair that might be on show.’

 

We Love: Lauren Pope’s Clip On Bun

 

 

 

Looking for styling ideas that are quick, easy and client friendly? Lauren Pope stepped out this week wearing her Hair Rehab London Clip On Bun, and we think this is look is fab for this time of year.

This is a perfect add on to recommend to clients with shorter-mid length hair who want an easy up-do for the festive season that’s low maintenance but looks perfectly put together.

Lauren Pope took to Instagram to share her Christmas party top knot and said, ‘If I’m in a rush I’ll always create a quick top knot with my Hair Rehab London Clip On Bun. It takes no time and still looks like you’ve made an effort.’

 

Kate Middleton’s New ‘Do

 

This week Kate Middleton was seen sporting shorter length and choppy layers, we spoke to Celebrity Stylist, Jamie Stevens to get his take on this haircut fit for a princess.

‘I love Kate Middleton’s new look, I love how the layers are left long to give her hair that thicker, fuller look, while her sweepy fringe frames her face. But I think she should’ve been a bit braver and gone just a couple of inches shorter! It’s almost unnoticeable but if she’d taken it up just that extra bit to her collar bone then she would have looked a bit more trendy and age relevant! Then again I know that being a Princess she probably needs to keep some length so she can put it up for all the fabulous events she goes to!’

 

We Love: Adele’s New Bob

 

So much went on last weekend but the talk of the town had to be Adele’s new hair.

But is the shorter the better when it comes to the new short choppy bob that both J-LAW and Adele have been wearing?

We spoke to Marc Trinder, Art Team Director at Charles Worthington to discover how to get the perfect bob.

‘To achieve the perfect Lob to Bob the hair needs to layered in a subtle way which can be done by layering the hair underneath. The hair then falls naturally with movement, whilst still looking thick and lustrous. Regular trims are essential for keeping the textured ends in tip top condition.

Charles Worthington Salons have recently launched a new cutting technique called the ‘Cross-Shake’ which gives the ultimate in effortless style by slicing sections generously cross-ways from left to right, then top to bottom at specific points in the hair. It creates bespoke texture and the signature ‘shaken’ finish, at the same time giving fullness and relaxed movement. It suits all hair types as it is a beautifully bespoke way of layering and texturising hair without leaving it thin and wispy.’

 

How To: Rita Ora’s Pixie Crop

 

 

Rita Ora took the plunge and was spotted with a daring pixie crop last week. We spoke to Marc Trinder at Charles Worthington to find out how to make this work for your clients.

Marc Trinder, Charles Worthington’s Art Team Director says “Rita has gone for a real androgynous look with her new pixie crop. The long layers around the front give a modern take on the classic pixie.”

Who will this style suit?

“This short style suits an oval and heart face shape, but does not tend to work for a round face shape. This style also works well for those with a strong jaw line and cheekbones, enhancing and flattering these features in a feminine way.”

“I love it when stars cut in a short, chic hairstyle; it can make your face look slimmer, enhance your bone structure and update your look without having to buy a new season wardrobe!”

“A good way to test if the style will actually suit you is to try a wig. The attitude and perception of wigs has changed dramatically. Not only have the quality of wigs improved but they have become the latest fashion accessory for celebrities. Absolutely anyone wears wigs these days.

we have recently launched a new cutting technique called the ‘Cross-Shake’ which gives the ultimate in effortless style by slicing sections generously cross-ways from left to right, then top to bottom at specific points in the hair. It creates bespoke texture and the signature ‘shaken’ finish, at the same time giving fullness and relaxed movement.

Davines Artistic Director Angelo Seminara Reveals Trends for Spring/Summer 2016

 

As the new year kicks off it’s time to start prepping for upcoming trends. Davines Artistic Director predicts the must have styles for Spring/Summer 2016.

Sibling SS16: Hair by Syd Hayes

Bangs (Fringes)

Next season starts off with a bang! At Fashion Week S/S16, the runways were teaming with fringes, worn in a variety of ways, from baby bangs at Prada, eyelash skimming wisps at Rebecca Minkoff and blunt cuts at Vera Wang.

Keep the look edgy with a choppy shaggy finish as seen at Sibling or for a more wearable version, take inspiration from Giorgio Armani and go with a deep sweeping side fringe.

Altuzarra SS16: Hair By Guido Morrocanoil

Twists

At the S/S16 shows we saw various takes on the classic twist. A quirky alternative to the recent braid trend, Paul Smith, Lanvin, Alberta Ferretti and Altuzarra were just a handful of designers to put their stamp on this traditional style. 

The beauty of this trend lies in two things: how simple it is to recreate and how wearable this look is, dressed up or down. If you are adding a twist in to freshly washed squeaky-clean hair, it’s essential to apply a good prepping product like the Your Hair Assistant BlowDry Primer, which I developed with Davines, applied before blow-drying and styling, will give the final style more body and hold.

Natural Texture

Embracing the natural curve was the message acroos the catwalks this season. Chloé shocased natural kinks while Bottega Veneta created ‘real women hair,’ full of natural movement, windswept volume and irregular waves.

To recreate this ‘day after a blow-dry’ look, and boost natural texture, spray Your Hair Assistant Definition Mist to hair, before drying, to add separation and texture.  Once hair is dry, boost volume further with Your Hair Assistant Volume Creator, a styling powder that builds natural volume and stops hair from ‘dropping’.

The finished style should look full of volume, natural and artfully undone – as if created by a sea breeze.
