Fearne Cotton's chic new look

You’ve been growing your hair for so long that you eventually get so bored of it that the next time you go to the hairdressers you get it all cut off.

Sound familiar? And, as radio DJ and podcast presenter Fearne Cotton proves, once you chop, you can’t stop!

If you’re looking for a new style for summer book an appointment with us today.

Five reasons to go for the chop

Short hair is quite possibly one of the easiest looks to pull off and the great thing is, it doesn’t need hours of styling, either.

It also works with any texture and hair colour, and is the quickest way to transform your look and the way you feel about life. Not convinced? Here are our five reasons to go for the chop:

REASON 1: You’ll get rid of unhealthy hair

REASON 2: It’s a chance to start again (so says the Queen of Reinvention Rihanna)

REASON 3: Short hair never goes out of style. Just look at Audrey Hepburn

REASON 4: It’s truly liberating (Miley Cyrus certainly thought so)

REASON 5: It’s not permanent. That’s the great thing about hair - it grows back!

Three ways to repair chemically damaged hair

Too many chemical treatments, like hair dyes, professional straightening or perms, can leave your hair in serious need of some TLC.

While going for a drastic chop and starting again is one option, if you can't face a completely new look there are a few things you can do to repair your hair and stop it from getting worse...

Damaged hair

Unlike your skin, your hair doesn't regenerate itself once it is damaged. The good news is, increasing the moisture with a hydrating mask can help bond the hair cuticles back, both in the salon and at home. Talk to us today about the moisturising treatments we have on offer.

If you're doing a DIY hair mask, aim for once a week. You can even sleep in it overnight (with hair wrapped in a microfibre towel) for maximum hydration.

Another way to improve the appearance of frazzled hair by combing conditioner through your mid-lengths and ends before rinsing, which has the effect of smoothing the hair cuticles down.

A fortifying hair serum nourishes the scalp and hair follicles. We like L'Oreal's Absolute Repair Serum, which you can buy here.

A great haircut will also revitalise hair and make you look - and feel - better about your damaged hair. You don't have to do anything drastic. We can work with your hair to create a style that complements the way it moves.
