This week in salon we have been flooded with balayage appointments. This is a trend which isn't going anywhere soon but we are seeing a change in the tones that clients are requesting. People are becoming braver and instead of the usual brunette to blonde transition, we are seeing people embrace their warmer tones and trying out rose golds, rich reds and warm blonde shades. We are hearing clients ask for a look that is more maintainable. The trend of grey hair (coloured grey not natural grey) is one that is high maintenance and requires visits almost fortnightly to the salon. Most people who have tried this now have decided to try out new tones because of this. Cool pastel shades generally rinse out and look "wishy washy" so if you want something that lasts and fades out well, then ask for warmer tones. Hair is naturally warm and inside a strand if hair you will find reds, oranges and yellows. I've certainly never seen a hair strand which has natural tones of blues or greens, hence why warmer tones last longer. 

In addition to loads of balayage, our phone has been constantly ringing asking for plaits and braids for school proms in South Woodford, Woodford Green and Buckhurst Hill and also festivals (Lovebox) in Victoria Park, London. We were so jealous at work on Saturday watching everyone go off to Lovebox with their glitter braids. The weekend is a short one for a hairdresser! 

This week in salon will see us attending an appointment at a clients house as we have the honour of doing her wedding hair. We love doing bridal hair and the team are fantastic at it!

With summer holidays about to begin its time to start thinking about getting your hair ship-shape for the months ahead. If it's your first visit to us we will give you 25% off your first colour, highlights or balayage appointment just to prove to you that we are the best hairdressers in South Woodford, perhaps even London! 

Oh yeah, we've just been nominated as finalists in the English Hair & Beauty Awards for the Best Salon in London so I'm not just being biased!!!
