Ever wondered why you develop a lifelong bond with your hairdresser ?

If you spend an hour within a persons personal space it becomes intimate. If you spend that time sharing life stories it becomes personal. If you know more about them than their friends or family might know it becomes deep.

A client only sees you for an hour or so every 6 to 10 weeks so they naturally feel the need to catch up on their lives and ask about yours. They can say things they won’t say to their best friends because they feel you won’t judge them, they can also drop the mask of being mother,sister, wife, daughter or friend and just be themselves. That leads to an investment in emotion. Sometimes being in the chair is the very short time they get to be themselves.

Clients share very personal details and highly confidential information & get emotionally close to their hairdressers probably uniquely so because of the physical proximity and intimacy that we are in.

The pregnancies,engagements, marriages and career successes are all a privilege to share especially with long-term clients who have been working and hoping for a long time.

Sometimes a client can feel they’ve over shared and that makes them reflect and not return. That can be upsetting as a hairdresser and confident as you feel there was a relationship. The client disappears without an explanation leaving you wondering what was done or said or if they are ok.

I think a client is attracted to their hairdresser because of the similarities in personality, values and especially trends with hair.

It doesn’t matter whether a client is young, old, rich or poor, male or female, straight or gay. If you are outgoing have an opinion, enjoy life and share my values we become friends.

Some people that don’t meet those traits can still be more of a client. I have very trusted and comfortable relationships with clients that hardly speak and certainly don’t share and that’s fine too, it’s knowing when to listen and went to talk that takes years of experience.

Topknots have become a popular style amongst men, especially those who are into the hipster trend.

While there critics that deem the man bun as being emasculating, it has been proven time and time again that men can rock this style without having their macho card revoked.

The history of the top knot can be traced back to Japanese Samurais, Vikings and even ancient India, so it’s pretty safe to say that manly men rocking buns is nothing new. If you’re interested in giving the top knot a try, no matter if you’re rocking a tapered cut or a head full of locks.

Here are some of my favourite knots.

January is always a great time to review what your hair styles have been the last 12 months or what you want to achieve in the next 12 months. Keep growing? Take the plunge and get adventurous with going shorter or changing your colour. My predictions are dimensional colours, lobs with texturised ends, mens sharp high fades with facial hair taken into consideration. Slick up-dos and tousled ponytails.

 

Here are a few inspirational picks.

hair breakage 3

 

Too many times I often see hair breakage around the face, particularly on blondes.

This occurs with excessive blow-drying colouring and the use of straightening irons.

Naturally this hair is finer than the rest of the hair and susceptible to damage.

There’s a tendency to style the hair around the face more than the back for obvious reasons.

What to do :

  • Ask your colourist to use a gentle creme lightener around your hairline. A low-strength colour will achieve the desired results because the hair is finer.

  • Avoid pulling hair back tightly in a pony tail or bun as stretching the finer hair continuously will stress the hair to breakage. Spraying the hair down to achieve a sleek pulled back look is a great preventative.

  • Adding thermal heat protector to your blow drying regime will increasingly strengthen the hair and avoid breakage. These products really work!

Check out these pictures for inspiration that work well for the groom.

My advice is to keep the hair with a little bit of length.
The reason for this is that it will photograph better than short hair. Be comfortable and look like yourself. Either way just make sure everything is clean and groomed.

Plenty of male celebrity choose the messy look for the red carpet so it’s a proven formal hairstyle.

Slick hair is one of the most common formal hairstyles. It is preferable to use a matte product that won’t show up shiny in wedding photos. If this look is new to you get the right haircut and product to practice with a few week before the wedding or have a barber or stylist do it for you on the big day.

It’s no doubt that along with the new year we can expect to see a wide array of new and popular hair colours and styles. From the wild styles that celebrities rock on the red carpet,  to the most subtle effects you can wear to work, you can find a new look perfect for you.

Whether it’s eclipting, balayage, or ecaille, 2017 has some cool colours in store.

Eclipting - Think of eclipting as countering for your hair. With this technique, the hair around your face is coloured darker than the rest, which ultimately makes your cheeks look slimmer. In order for this technique to work, you need an experienced stylist. When done correctly, this technique can dramatically change the appearance of your face.

Tiger Eye Bronde – One of the hottest colours for 2017 will be Tigereye a blonde colour that incorporates honey, amber and soft brown highlights, painted on with the balayage technique. The popular hair colour started flooding Instagram in late 2016 and can be seen on celebrities like Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez. What’s great about this warm caramel colour for brunettes? It grows out seamlessly so you don’t have to worry about roots.

Pastel - Pastel hair colours, like a peach, lavender, baby blonde and soft rainbow colours continue to be popular for those looking to fit outside the box. These colours give you a soft, cute look with just a hint of whimsy. They’re also extremely versatile. For instance, pastels can be combined with complementary highlights to create a wide range of stunning looks. Brunettes who don’t want to bleach their hair first should look to another popular hair colour, chocolate mauve which incorporates lavender highlights into a chocolate base.

Jewel tones - As popular as light colours are shaping up to be, dark colours are making their way into the spotlight too. A dark midnight blue or dark teal gives off a cool bad girl vibe. Dark colours also look flattering on most skin tones, so anyone can rock this look.
