Welcome back!

Finally the time has come to get back to doing what we do best. This last year has been extremely stressful for everyone. 

We are excited to be back and are now taking online appointments. All the team are back and are ready to go. We have new product lines from our partners at Redken and GHD. Myself Jody, passed my exams making me a Redken certified colourist. All the team have attended so many online classes and even a global symposium with Redken. We had an Salon Business awards ceremony, all very strange online but great fun!

We have always been on the ball with skin testing as safety is of paramount importance to us. Skin testing is a legal requirement, and with recent changes to the regulations surrounding this,the criteria is quite complex. This means everyone will need to be skin tested again ahead of any forthcoming appointments. This will need to be done every 6 months.

If you have had any changes in medication, had Covid-19 or Covid vaccination, used Henna or any form of tatoo. Skin test , must be performed 48 hours prior to a colouring service. Please allow plenty of time for colour appointments. We have had to lengthen all appointment times due to government guidelines.

Finally I would like to wish everyone a Better, Brighter and Happier New Year.

 

Redken’s NEW Shades EQ Colour Gloss

Redken’s NEW Shades EQ Colour Gloss

Let’s start with the basics. A hair gloss is a professional haircolor service that is offered in a salon. These types of services are often executed by stylists as a way to tone, color-correct or add shine to the hair.  As these glosses are a form of demi-permanent haircolor, they are made up of a mix of both oxidative and direct dyes. Combined, this dynamic duo allows you to flirt with a new haircolor without fully committing to it.

Merry Christmas!!
