new year, new you!

Happy New Year to all our clients. I usually begin the year with an overview of what the many fashionistas in the hair world are predicting for hair trends in 2018. However I have decided to concentrate on what the demand of our clients has been so far this year!

Now this may differ greatly from the world of Vogue and Tatler but is probably, for most of us, a far more realistic notion of what we will see on the high streets in northern Britain and not what is on the catwalks of Paris and Milan. I don’t know about anyone else but quite often I look at these images and shows and think “who really wears their hair like that?!”

I do anticipate a move towards shorter ladies styles this year. This is compounded by the many clients already climbing into the stylists chairs at Greg Malloy Hairdressing and proclaiming to want “it all off, very short and out of my way!!!” This is quite unusual during the colder months. Quite expectedly the fades/ ombre looks are still popular and although the pastel colours are still prevalent customers are tending to be a little bolder so baby pink is becoming dusky or dirty pink!! This is a positive move as the more intense pastels are much easier to achieve and often to maintain.

In complete contrast to the ladies, the men are opting for leaving it a little longer. Dishevelled curtains topped with facial hair seem to be popular and almost a greasy look is the order of the day. Of course only for those who have the patience and perseverance to bother growing it!

Wedding Time!

It is that time of year again when brides are scouring pinterest to find the dream bridal style and mothers are traipsing around spending hours in bridal shops trying to find the perfect dress!

I feel the first rule with the hairstyle is make sure you have the dress first and have a good think about the bridesmaids style and image you want to portray then and only then can you seriously consider what you should try for your hair. Wedding fayres are a great way of finding all the ideas under one roof and can save hours of time! They are a great choice for uninterested grooms who may not enjoy endless wedding talk and having to make lots of decisions. At these events its easy to get it all organised under one roof especially if you target the fayre in the area in which you are getting married. It is often advisable to speak to the individual businesses and ask them who they would recommend for other services as they all work the same patch and will know the best businesses to use! Even though I provide hairdressing, I know exactly who i would use for flowers, photography and cakes etc!

On the subject of wedding events I would like to apologise to all my brides who are attending the wedding fayre at the Inn on the Lake this sunday (22nd). I am unable to attend but feel free to phone me with any queries.
