Fashion Flashes

A great bold fashion statement
What is it?
A flash of colour randomly placed throughout the hair, usually bright colours such as neon pink, turquoise, flaming red, orange

The best advice I can give is get a really good colourist to create your look as this could go horribly wrong, I mean you could use a colour flash that doesn’t suit your hair colour or skin tone
But done right with a colourist who has a great eye for tone a truly beautiful colour and look can be created
On the flip side you could always try a clip in Hair Flash attached with discreet wire placed behind your hairline covered with your own hair, The flashes can then be positioned wherever you want.

We all love it here are some tips on the best way to create it , Velcro rollers are probably the easiest way to create big beautiful hair , use volumising mousse in damp towel dried hair, Blow dry the hair to 90 percent dry either with you fingers with a denmin brush , then taking large sections around the size of the Velcro roller , place the roller in the hair in the direction you want the hair to sit ,making sure the ends are wrapped neatly around the roller, when all the rollers are in the hair , give it a blast of hot air from the dryer and spray a dusting of hair spray over the hair , allow to cool for 10 minutes or so then take the rollers out and give it a shake , result beautifully finished big hair

FAQ’s Answered By Pamela Edwards-McKenzie

[faq]
[faq_question]My hair is naturally dry and unless I pay for a professional blowdry it looks really frizzy. I would really like it look healthy and shiney. Help![/faq_question]
[faq_answer]You are a perfect candidate for a brazilian keratin treatment, a revolutionary new service for anyone wanting to tame flyaway, damaged or frizzy hair. After trying out numerous different types in salon we have come to love JV Smoothing Treatment. It is an organic intensive conditioning service that smooths and nourishes the outside of the hair fibre with natural keratin protein and argan oil. The frizz is tamed, the hair is left sleeker with a beautiful shine. Its like having a professional blowdry that lasts up to 3 months![/faq_answer]

[faq_question]My long fine hair is so limp at the roots that I need to wash it everyday. I have used a lot of different shampoos and conditioners for both greasy and for fine hair and always I shampoo twice to make sure its extra clean but nothing seems to help. Is there anything I can do?[/faq_question]
[faq_answer]By the sounds of it your problem more lies with your routine rather than your choice of products. Number 1 rule, do not have your water too hot and after your last shampoo turn the water down to as cool as you can handle it. This will soothe and close down the pores of your scalp. Also if you are washing your hair everyday you don’t need to do two shampoos everytime. Too much stimulation of the scalp through over washing or vigourous rubbing will kick start your sebaceous glands and cause excess oil. Finally, change your conditioner to a spray on rather than a cream formulation and never put conditioner on the root area it is naturally looked after by the scalp.[/faq_answer]

[faq]
[faq_question]My hair has always been fine but lately I feel like its getting thinner and I worry that you can see my scalp. What can I do to thicken it up and give it more body?[/faq_question]
[faq_answer]There are some great products on the market these days for fine hair. Kerastase’s Volumative range helps to reinforce the hair fibre so it is stronger and has more vitality. Also twice a year you can do a 6 week intensive home programme for thinning hair. Kerastases Aminexil GL M is clinically proven to make hair thicker, reactrivate the short hairs and lift the hair follicle blockages to cease futher hair loss. Lastly if your hair is a lighter shade you could try colouring it darker as it will give the illusion of being denser and thicker and the colour itself will give the hair extra lift, especially at the root area.[/faq_answer]

[faq]
[faq_question]I have just found out i’m pregnant and have heard that alot of women suffer from hair loss. Is this true?[/faq_question]
[faq_answer]Yes it is but don’t be alarmed. Firstly the rise in estrogen when you are pregnant causes hair to remain in the growing phase and stimulates growth so while you are pregnant you can expect your hair to be full and luxurious! The most common period of hair loss occurs approximately three months after delivery. This is when the hormones return to normal levels, allowing the hair to fall out and return to the normal cycle. The normal hair loss that was delayed during pregnancy may fall out all at once. This is not uncommon, affecting somewhere between 40 to 50% of women. There is a number of steps you can take to help. Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables, which contain flavonoids and antioxidants that may provide protection for the hair follicles and encourage hair growth. Consult with your health care provider to ensure a proper balance of hormones and supplements such as vitamin C, E, B complex and Zinc. Use shampoos and conditioners that contain biotin and silica and generally take a gentle approach, no tight braids, cornrows or using fine tooth combs to help prevent breakage and lastly turn down your hairdryer to a cool heat.[/faq_answer]

[title]Madonna By Lindsay[/title]
From her backcombed Debut to scrunched Like a Virgin, she even went short and platinum True Blue to Who’s That Girl, she even went back to her dark roots for Like A Prayer, [quote_right]Madonna immaculately changed her look.[/quote_right] Madonna even went Erotica with the sleek style and had a Bedtime Story with platinum blonde, she’s done it all. Madonna had Something to Remember with classic 30’s 40’s look with Evita, and went all natural and wavy for Ray of Light. She had a cowgirl moment with wavy glossy curls with Music in mind, but then she remembered her American Life roots and went dark brown again with a choppy more edgy look. Then Madonna had some Confessions on a Dancefloor with red auburn glossy locks, then she went all Hard Candy back to her signature blonde and Back to natural MDNA blonde with natural shiny waves.
It can’t be easy re-inventing your look all the time

Do fringes suit everybody?

It feels like every 5 minutes!
Are They In? Are They Out?
Chunky Fringes, Solid Fringes, Sweeping fringes, Soft Fringes, Wispy Fringes

They are great as a fashion statement to complete a look
Great for hiding forehead wrinkles (cheaper than Botox) Ha!

However they don’t suit everybody and different growth patterns in the hair can mean the fringe maybe more work than anticipated.
My advice is consult your stylist they will be able to advise whether it will suit you face and hair type

A really good way to get Hollywood Glam Party Hair for this season is by using Velcro rollers, First apply a volumising mousse such as Schwarzkopf hold miracle mousse to damp towel dried hair then blow dry. Next pick up hair sections the same size as your roller and roll the Velcro into the hair ends to roots in the direction you want your hair to fall. When the Velcro’s are in, Heat with the hair dryer for a few minutes and leave to cool for 10 minutes then take the rollers out, Finally spray the hair with a Volumizing hair spray I like to use Schwarzkopf glamour queen…

The result is beautiful enchanting hair (as modeled by Katy)

Now that we are all feeling like drowned rats! Well in the UK any way ,I thought now might be a good time to recommend some Anti Frizz Products since the weather has made our hair flyaway and frizzy….
The Kerastase Elixir Range consists of four serums
1. Regular for all hair types
2. Damaged hair
3. Fine Sensitized hair
4. Colour Treated hair
These products are fragrance infused and contain argon oil and other essential oils, they absorb into the hair leaving it felling protected smooth silky and weightless, unlike a lot of serums they do not leave the hair feeling oily, I use this product on myself and my clients, there is a product in this range for every hair type.
Apply a few drops to washed towel dried hair before styling, an added tip is while you are blow drying always point the nozzle of the dryer towards the ends of the hair this smooth’s the outer cuticle of the hair and eliminates frizz. On a day you don’t wash your hair a few drops of serum throughout the mid lengths and ends will tame fly away hair.
Has anyone tried?

[title]What is it?[/title]
An ancient massage technique from Japan using tools that look like wooden drumsticks. They’re tapped on the back, and are apparently great for getting rid of tension and boosting circulation.
[title]What does it involve?[/title]
While my colour was processing I relaxed in the chair and the therapist gently tap-danced the sticks all around my upper back and shoulder area for about 15mins.
[title]Sounds like torture![/title]
It felt fantastic. It was different from other massages because I could feel the vibrations throughout my body as I was tapped.
[title]Could you relax?[/title]
I did. I didn’t fall asleep, when I opened my eyes I felt totally calm.
[title]Did it help?[/title]
My back felt amazing. It made me realise how much tension I’d been holding in. I felt really relaxed, invigorated and re-energised. I’ll definitely be going back for the treatment again.

As the title says, welcome! this is my very first blog about the wonderful world of style, which we all need, crave and more, so…enjoy.

To start i must say my ultimate motto is: that we are all individuals and it must celebrate so.

With that say, which i am sure i will reprise over and over, i would like to introduce myself:

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Ok,, you gather i love the drama. But yes! But let me tell you a little bit more about myself so you know who yo are talking to, and why i think i can help ou with my tips and i can even break some myths.

My name is Ariel, i am originally from the province of Barcelona, Spain (duh!). I came to the UK with a very big dream and i am doing pretty well. I have my dream job, my dream house and my dream cat. I only have to go a few years more to get my dream lottery ticket and it will be perfect! Now, jokes aside, i have been with the Skye Norman team since pretty much from the beginning. Run by an exceptional lady (which i hope is not reading this) called Skye Norman, who heard about yours truly through a common friend (let’s called her Sue), got in contact with me. I came to meet her and see what and WHERE the salon was, and as history has it, we got on like a house on fire.

Now, i highlighted the WHERE word, and the reason is that I work in two previous salons, for four and nine years previously, which were massive! About 15 stylists working, plus double the amount of clients, plus about 8 juniors.

After fifteen years i was ready to have a little smaller, cosier, cutier salon, so i don’t feel i am dealing with a hundred people a week. So the fact of having this little secluded little salon with everything i need (including Beautician), sounded just great and wonderful.

I cannot go on, without saying how amazingly we were embrace with the local people who embrace us part of the comunity (myself having lived for many years nearby, i was shellshock).

And that’s pretty much the story. I could not be happier with my lovely colleagues (all close friends), our wonderful clients ( not just mine, I know them all) and always super welcoming people which keeps us alive and fresh.

I am proud to say i am so privileged by wonderful clients not only from the area, but also from all over London, the UK and all over the world. WOW! I am so amazed about it all. Corny i know, but fact’s a fact. Thanks!

Getting down to the nitty/gritty, i would say i have in hairstyling hates and loves. I ‘ll say loves are classic Hollywood glamour ( which i found never goes out of the catwalks), and i love avant-gard (can bear boredom, especially for a bi night out). My hates are not many, but just those little fashions which last a season, and co not suit everybody.

So yes; my, i would say trademark is i like to fashioned a look for a person, because we are all individuals and unique, and taylor-made a look for someone base in their life and shape. And by all means we’ll go mad if need be.

Anyway, i shall elaborate in many different issues, some accompanied by pictures, videos, etc. It’s a large subject because there so many individuals and i’ll do my damnedest in tackling every one of them.

Oops! time’s run out, mow i have done the niceties, we shall get to the nitty-gritty about how to make the very best of ourselves. The only way is up! (Yeah, i love good ol’ Yazz).
