Colour changes

This week we’ve seen lots and lots of colour changes to a more autumnal/wintery hue.

My lovely model this week at the Loreal academy had a colour change from purple and blonde highlights to a dark blonde copper base. Still keeping her copper for the winter, I just added a brighter red/copper on top of a dark copper base. I had to do two gentle cleanses and one deep cleanse to remove the violet from the hair and here we have a clearer copper tone. All done with L’Oréal Smart bond.

Hair colour change

With my colour degree coming to an end, I can now take on new clients again. Also this week I got to get my hands on this lovely new lady’s hair. We went from blonde to a dark blonde ash undertones with a clear gloss to finish. A subtle change but a big difference.

And last, but not least for this week, the lovely Joanna switched her colour to darker, more wintery tones. I just love the red curls.

Thank you for reading and following our news, I’ll be back with more next week :)

Winter colours

I’ve noticed a change in colour requests this week in particular. It must be something to do with the weather getting colder. Brrr. On Tuesday I took my weekly trip to Manchester on a train for the Colour Specialist Training and here are the results on my beautiful model, I just love the red tones…

More L’oréal colour

Hey, here’s another week gone by and what a blast we’ve had. As you know by now, I just love playing with colours and this week’s mix of beige and clean blonde highlight with ash/gold base produced this stunning result.

Wedding hair

 

Last weekend was a busy one doing bridal hair for the beautiful Jodie and her bridal party. It was a fantastic day and it was great to be part of such a special occasion. Hair up for weddings is something I enjoy very much.

Goodbye September

Well, another busy week is behind us, as well as the salon work I celebrated my birthday too. The girls were lovely and decorated the salon on the day to surprise me.

Going into autumn we are seeing clients are choosing darker tones for their hair, even the blondes have an autumn hint to them.

And this week’s favourite is the hair up with the Simone who looked like a princess.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be back next week with more updates.

Hair-up and more colour

Lately it feels like the weeks are flying by, so many lovely clients and different hair transformations it’s a joy to come to the salon every day.

I loved this hair-up style we did for the gorgeous Becki, the two tone hair colour really makes this style come to life.

My L’Oréal training is continuing and I had great news that I have passed last week’s assignment with flying colours :) so you can rest assured I do know what I am doing when you trust me with your hair.

This week’s favourite colour of mine was this gorgeous red on the lovely Carol – just the right shade for her complexion and to welcome the autumn in.

We are still looking for a couple of hairdressers to join our team so if you hear of anyone, please send them my way.

Until next week,

Looking for Hairdressers

Another hectic week is behind us, time flies when you’re having fun  :-)

I had my first assignment at the L’Oréal Colour Specialist course I am enrolled on and can’t wait to get the results next week. We had further lessons and this week’s colour is L’Oréal 6.66 which is quite an intense but warm red.

We are now also a SMARTBOND salon. SMARTBOND is L’Oréal’s new protective and strengthening service, specifically designed for the hairdressers. It is a unique system that protects and strengthens the hair during technical services (such as bleach and haircolour).

I have more great news as we are looking for hairdressers to join our growing team at the Wirral salon. Anyone out there that would like to start their own business but wants to be part of a supportive and growing company, we would love to speak to them. Please help us spread the word and send them my way for a chat.

L’Oréal Academy

I attended my second day at the L’oreal academy today and we were let loose on some real life models which was very exciting.
This lady was my model, her name was Kath although I forgot her name a lot and called her various other names she didn’t seem to mind and was lovely.
She was 100% white natural with a build up of yellow and green discolouration through the ends from old hair dye and swimming. I did a gentle cleanse through the ends and then applied a 10.21 L’oreal mid-lengths 1st/fresh mix then roots/fresh mix and then ends but with 10 ml of water to mixture.

The end result was this beautiful vanilla blond shade.

Hair Extension

This week we had some fun with Beauty Works extensions.

The beautiful Hannah was bored with having just black hair forever and wanted a change. I didn’t want to cleanse her hair because she’s a true Pocahontas at heart😂 so instead, I ordered some Beauty Works hair for her and we custom dyed it smoky pink, weaved them in and there you go a new look.

As Hanna put it herself – we’ve turned her into a Power Puff Girl.

Autumn Is Here

How did the summer come to an end so quickly? Time flies when you are having fun, they say. Isn’t that true. Another week just whizzed past, another busy week at the salon and more training done.

Lisa has had a day at the Beauty Works Specialist Extensions Course and I have started the L’Oréal Colour Specialist course which is a 15-week intense training, the first day finished well  :-)

Our clients are starting to request a more autumn inspired colours so I will leave you with this beautiful copper blonde balayage.
