We know...Same old story, different year. "New Year, New You!" It is possible to have a New Year, and be the same you, but with better hair!
It's a great opportunity to think about changing your style. Believe us, we know how difficult it can be to change your style up. But a professional stylist will help you through that process. You may feel you know what suits you, but you don't see yourself through other people's eyes, and that's important to keep in mind. So, here's five simple ways to update yourself ready for the New Year (but it's the same you...right?)
Switch up your Style
What could possibly be easier than getting a new Style? NOTHING says New Year like a style change. Especially if you are determined to make this the year for you! Work with our Stylists with our 'Make-Up for Hair' principle to make sure that you get the most from your style dependant on your face shape! Even simply putting in some longer layers into curly hair can help lift those curls up and give them great bounce! Same goes with longer hair if you don't want to lose the length. The longer layers will really help add movement give a statement.
Colour My World
Yes...A colour! When it comes to colour, the world is literally your oyster now! No longer do you have to go with what the latest Celeb has. You can speak to our Stylists and use Make-Up for Hair about the colours that work well with your skin tone, your hairstyle and your face shape. We can add lighter balayage to frame your cheeks to make your face appear wider, or root stretch to help darken and shrink features you don't want to accentuate. Want to be gentle on your hair? Our SMART Colours mean that they protect the hair whilst colouring. All our lifting services include SMARTBOND and our INOA colouring system is ammonia free, using an oil/water technology to deposit colour into your hair. Almost the only thing limiting your choices, is your imagination!
No it's not a suggestion to get away to the Maldives for the winter months (good call though!). Often January and February days are cold but bright. Don't forget that UV damage doesn't just happen when it's hot! Our Kerastase Soleil range has built in UV protection to help limit colour fading, dryness and damage. You pay for an amazing colour, you should use the products that help keep it in the best condition!
The Cold Shoulder
This is what your hair will undoubtedly give you as it changes from hot air conditioned shops and offices out to cold dry air! Making your hair lose moisture and appear dull and lacklustre. Use a deep conditioning treatment such as Shu Uemura or Kerastase to help build up your hairs resistance. Dependant on your hair type they can put in moisture, replace proteins, or de-frizz! As little as once a week for five minutes can help you to continue to look like you've just stepped out of the Salon.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness...
Well...Maybe, but shampooing your hair every day can cause some serious issues. Shampooing removes the oils from your hair which can make it feel dry, brittle or fragile. Now is the time for a New Hair Resolution!
It's hard trying to break the daily shampoo routine. But it takes a bit of guts, and possibly a stretch of time where you can wear a hat...Like winter! If you have really fine hair, or if you go to the gym every day (well it is new year!) or if you put a lot of styling products in your hair then this may be harder to do for you, however that doesn't mean you can't help your hair! Pick a sulphate free shampoo. Sulphates can potentially strip the hair more than needed, and in some cases may cause irritation. If you have to wash every day then make sure that you use one with no sulphates. Your hair will thank you later.
Now... If you have thick hair, or curly hair, washing your hair every 2 - 3 days is absolutely fine. Our tip, if you absolutely can not go without washing your hair....Don't use a shampoo. Jump in the shower in the morning and massage that scalp and rub through, as if there was shampoo in there. This will give you the feeling you have had a shampoo but without the product. Natural oils can act as a moisturiser, and if you have curly or thick hair then these can appear to add shine to your hair, and even moisturise dry ends if you comb through from the root.
This is not to say that if you have exceptionally oily hair to just leave it and it will sort itself out. You have to do what is right for you. Ultimately, the products you use play a MASSIVE part in the feel and health of your hair. Both when you leave the Salon and in between visits! So invest in shampoo that will keep your hair healthy. You use less of it, so in the long run it costs no more than your special offer £2 bottle on the shelf. Set yourself up for a year of great hair, and join Tommy's to make a NEW HAIR RESOLUTION for 2018!
