Making a change with hair extensions

Hair Extensions are a fantastic way to update your look for an immediate change,  and if they are cared for correctly can last for months with little damage or no damage to your natural hair. Hair extensions are not only used for length they can be use for thickness, to change the look of your cut or even to add colour when you know your natural hair is not up to the chemical process of the colouring you would like to achieve.

One example of this is the Balayage look, that has been particularly popular over the last eight or so brown-curly-hairyears. Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. The go-to for modern, chic hair, balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with1 a sun-kissed finish. This effect sounds deceptively simple. It can however, take hours in the hair salon to reproduce, and may leave you with left with dry, damaged ends or blotchy colour.

Recently Great length Hair Extensions have released colour blocking or balayage coloured extensions and these are an ideal way to achieve this hair colour without the associated risks. There are 10 colour combinations to choose from, varying from subtle to dramatic, in two different lengths.

We choose to use only Great Lengths 100% human hair extensions as we firmly believe they offer the best quality, ethics and training available. Read more about Great Lengths hair extensions here. Each Great Lengths certified salon has undergone a full training in order to become a stockist of the product. This ensures that there is at least one certified technician in the salon who is expertly trained in precise application techniques, colour blending and advanced cutting. All these skills result in very professional, natural looking results.

Kevin Murphy – bodybuilding options for fine hair.

Kevin Murphy has so many hero products - it's a range we absolutely love using in the salon, and at home as well.

Click here to purchase Kevin Murphy products.

The brand was created by Kevin Murphy, an editorial hairstylist, who found the performance of mainstream hair products unsatisfactory when he was working with them. Strongly promoting ties with nature and born from the same philosophy as skin care, the products use pure essential oils, plant extracts and and natural antioxidants.

For those of us that struggle with getting body and volume in fine hair, there are some must-haves. "The shampoo and conditioner are the first step to create the body that people with finer hair are looking for, and so it's important to use volumising products," Bobbi advises.

Layering the volume products helps build a final look. "Use a root-lifting mousse and thickening product like Kevin Murphy's Full Again through the mid lengths and ends of damp hair before you blow dry. It will give you loads of body and bounce. in the range. Bobbi, one of Liquid Hair's senior stylists, says the Angel Wash and Angel Rinse are an essential building block when it comes to putting the bounce in fine hair styling.

Another exciting product for fine hair is Powder Puff - great for creating voluminous, feminine blowdry looks. Click here for a podcast from Kevin Murphy using the Powder.
