Anniversary Balayage blondes special offer

This September/October help us celebrate our 15 year Anniversary, Balayage including a cut and blow dry for an all in price of £139. Balayage is a freehand technique that works with the natural fall and movement of the hair. Balayage comes from the French word meaning to sweep. In this form we do a natural looking highlight which is free painted on to the hair. This gives a very natural look as if your hair had lightened in the sun; emphasis can be given to areas that you want to stand out, such as the hair around the face. There are many different techniques of Balayage and some involve a colour being applied to the root. You will need a skin test for this 48 hours before. If you are unsure we are very happy to give advice over the phone and will tell you how to proceed. Offer ends 6th October Cannot be combined with other offers or discounts Last appointment 4pm weekdays 2pm Saturdays

How to avoid making these mistakes when blow drying

A lot of my clients tell me they can't blow dry their own hair, the thing is most of them only tried once or twice then gave up. It takes practice and it took me a lot of practice to make it look easy. However there are some classic mistakes that can be avoided and make your blow dry look salon ready.

1, You started off too wet, this actually has a negative effect rough dry first, it will look better and you will not feel like your arms about to fall off.

2, The sections were too small, take big sections you will get more body.

3, You did not use a nozzle, this is a must or you will end up with frizzy looking hair.

4, Use a styling product, we do sometimes hair needs a little help.

5, Lastly a good stylist will show you how to dry it if they don't ask them to.
