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.

What is the difference between manual and chemical exfoliation?

Reversing the aging process and achieving luminous skin is priority number one for many of us when we think about skin care and the skin care products we purchase. Regular exfoliation is an important part of maintaining skin health. It also improves the benefits from skin care products such as moisturiser, which are able to better penetrate the skin after exfoliation clears away the dead skin cells.

Generally speaking, exfoliation refers to any technique that removes cells from the skin surface, not only immediately “refreshing” the skins appearance but also stimulating cell renewal. The benefits are dramatic, and, when used with professional guidance, exfoliation can treat a wide variety of skin problems. These include acne, hyper-pigmentation, premature aging and scarring to name a few. Exfoliation is also important for those with oily skin. In addition to smoothing, improving skin tone and enhancing skin’s receptiveness of oil-controlling ingredients, exfoliation helps rid oily skin of dulling skin cells to help keep skin clear. Learn more about the benefits of exfoliation from Dermalogica here.

There are two ways to exfoliate; manually and chemically.

Manual exfoliation involves using mildy abrasive tools like exfoliating wash gloves or sponges as well as exfoliating products like grainy scrubs.  Manual exfoliants loosens and reduces the outer skin cells. Scrubs and tools use mechanical frictions to help shed skin cells. One draw back of this method of exfoliation is the risk of irritation, and excessive abrasion of the skin can cause damage, especially if you have sensitive skin.

 Chemical exfoliation means using acid-rich or enzyme-based products to help gently exfoliate your skin. They work by dissolving the bonds between the skin cells to stimulate the shedding process. By making it easier for the cells to slough off, new skin is revealed, brighter and smoother than before.

Exfoliation delivers a tighter, firmer, smoother look and feel of skin. Because of this result, many fall into the trap of over-exfoliation: an over-zealous approach that can actually reduce skin’s vitality and make it more susceptible to damage from UV light. It is recommended that a skin specialist prescribe your exfoliation products and routine to best maximise the effects, and treat any skin problems.

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.

The Cloud Nine Wand: less heat and more styling options!

Since it's launch in 2009, Cloud Nine has become a favourite brand of styling tool with professional hairdressers and their clientele who want to recreate that 'just been to the salon' look in their own home.

Charlotte, senior stylist at Liquid Hair, loves The Wand which was launched by Cloud Nine in 2012. She uses it at home herself! Here she takes us through a few of the benefits of her favourite styling tool, and gives a few professional tips onhow to use it!

"I love using the wand - it gives me loads of volume and movement, and it's so easy tphotoo use. Being able to adjust the heat means you can use a cooler setting which is better for long-lasting waves and curls," Charlotte said.

"Every time you can make the style individual by taking different sizes sections, and I really like the natural look of the waves you get from using this tool."

"I find the wand a lot easier than using irons to create curl, and so much quicker. Make sure you use a heat-protecting spray to take care of the condition of the hair. TheO Spray is also great for when you want to get that volume and shine without weighing your hair down. And remember to use the glove provided so you don't burn your fingers!"

"I've always been a fan of naturally curly hair but many people blessed with this see it as a curse. They are always stretching it out straight or just wearing it up not being able to tame it. Then on the other hand some people love curly hair and wish they could achieve the look but don't realise with the correct cut and correct product selection they can encourage their hair to bounce right up." Emma's tips are outlined below:

Curl Defining Cream: Frizz free definition for fine medium or course hair. Great definition for wavy or curly hair while hair retains movement.

Curl Control Mousse: I like to use this product on finer hair, not only is it weightless it give support to curls that need some extra bounce.

Intense Curl Cream: A high gloss product great for extremely curly hair. Curls remain moisturised smooth and soft.

Moroccanoil range also includes some great treatment products. The Restorative Hair Mask is great for all hair types, and is rich in protein - perfect for chemically or thermally damaged locks. You can even add the Morocanoil treatment oil to the mix for extra benefits.
