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!

Weddings!!

I am now knee deep in wedding season and would like to wish all the best to my brides this week. I have a few wedding tips and trends to share this week based on my recent wedding hair experiences.

Jewelry is becoming much more popular and I am increasingly pinning in necklaces (as something old or borrowed) and broaches. This weekend I worked with some fabulous headlaces designed to sit at the temples, they were very Kim Kardashian and looked beautiful and very original.

Also my top tip for hair accessories is to try your local haberdashery store to find buttons that can be easily looped onto grips and popped into wedding hair. They will have a selection and they are much cheaper than other shops that sell wedding hair accessories!!

I hope this gives prospective brides some inspiration. Happy wedding planning!!!

wedding tips!

If you are lucky enough to be tying the knot this year then your hair is at the forefront of your mind if its not then it should be. Here are a few suggestions to get your hair in optimum bridal condition!!!

Keep it well conditioned, use more than usual leave it on a fraction longer and maybe treat yourself to a new treatment to use weekly to fix and restore your hair. (for really chemically damaged in my view the best is Alterna protein repair masque RRP £42) A lighter option Bamboo moisture masque from Alterna. These are all sulphate free products and protect colours from fading also.

Get it trimmed!!!!! many prospective brides try to avoid haircuts but the honest answer is it will grow but the ends will be tatty and frizzy if they have not been attended to.

Practice your bridal style with your stylist so that you can relax knowing how it will all look on your big day!!

Good luck and enjoy your weddings!!
