THE BLONDE EDIT

Last month Lizzie and Millie headed to London to take part in the L’Oreal Professionnel Blonde Edit alongside a group of other L’Oreal Portfolio salon teams.  They were given a brief to create one of three blonde colour trends and the pair chose Bronzed Blonde.

TREND ALERT: BRONZED BLONDE

Bronzed blonde is ideal for those taking the first steps towards more natural blonder tones and is a glossy, post holiday look. This ultra soft freehand service uses honey caramel tones for a bronzed glow and is ideal for clients who want to add more definition and contrast to overprocessed hair.

‘The day was a fabulous experience and it was great to explore more ideas with Mabel’s hair. I can’t wait to start using the new bronzed blonde techniques at Sadler Gate!’ Millie King

‘We spent the day at L’Oréal headquarters for the blonde edit which was a great experience from start to finish. We wanted to create a natural bronzed look to shy away from the ombré look and inspire clients with a greater variety of tones.’ Lizzie Fox

We always tailor blonde tones to suit your colouring and taste, ask to your stylist about which blonde tones will work for you.To make an appointment with Lizzie (Salon Manager and Colour Specialist) or Millie (Stylist) please call the Sadler Gate salon on 01332 203 302 or book online via our website.

Below: The final Blonde Edit looks are blushed blonde, bronzed blonde and plati-nude.

SS17 IT LOOKS

L’OREAL PROFESSIONNEL TRENDS

Inspired by the runway, below are the two emerging trends for Spring/Summer 2017. Emmy Rappe (left) wears the first new service, Foilyage, although this technique is showcased on copper it is great for blondes and brunettes too.

The second trend, modelled by the stunning L’Oreal Professionnel ambassaor, Hailey Baldwin (right), is Nude Beige, inspired by the ‘barely-there’ nude make-up trend.

These looks are perfect for spring and so easy to wear.

 

COPPER FOILYAGE 

Copper is the colour of the season spotted on the latest runways of the likes of Alexander Wang. We are embracing this colour and paring it with a trending technique, Foilyage. Like balayage, which you might be familiar with, this is a technique where the hair colour technician would freehand paint lighter pieces into the hair. However, selected pieces are then wrapped in foils, creating defined lightness to blend seamlessly with the softer tones.

Although modelled on copper, this technique is perfect for blondes and brunettes alike.

DISCOVER FOILYAGE

The new adaptation of the Balayage technique, Foilyage, this technique gives the so desired ultimate natural-looking sun-kissed glow perfect for introducing that spring/summer vibe. The subtlety of this look brings beauty creating definition and dimensions in the hair throughout the front section, in particular the lengths and ends. The glossy perfection that comes with this technique avoids the need for a radical transformation involving heavy commitment. A palette of copper and golden shades are perfect for this technique to brighten up and warm any hair colour.

The increased popularity of the Foilyage trend across the runways, celebrity looks and the high street is contributed to by its low maintenance nature, like Balyage, this professional salon-only technique gives the chic look and feel good factor reducing the need to go to the salon every few weeks. What more could you want?

NUDE BEIGE

Inspired by the ‘barely there’ nude make-up look, this trend uses the beige hair colour palette playing with a blend of cool and warm tones making this look perfect for spring and easy to wear.

Your colourist will work with your face shape to really emphasise your natural features & highlight the face contour with the colour placement adding an effortless glow for a chic and natural-looking result.

Our team all took part in an education session on the new techniques with L’Oreal Professionnel, ask them about nude blonde and foliage on your next visit.

INTRODUCING PHD WAXING

belper-0018

We’re delighted to have introduced PHD Safewax to the Belper salon. The unique PHD Waxing System offers a treatment totally free of cross contamination. This is achieved through using the individually packaged applicator heads which are thrown away after your treatment, preventing cross contamination from one client to another. Its applicator head has a built in safety device to prevent the backflow of wax into the tube eliminating the risk of cross contamination.

Professional… hygenic… Disposable 

For the best result…

There are lots of things to take into consideration to get the best results from your waxing.

1. The hair should not be touched for at least 4-6 weeks. This is because your hair is on a cycle, you may feel after a couple of weeks of not shaving your hairs are all their and are long enough, this is simply not the case. If we were to wax, yes we would remove the visible hairs, but the hairs that are not visible will then start to appear after a couple of days, making you feel the waxing hasn’t worked, not true, it’s just that those hairs are on a different cycle. Allowing 4-6 weeks will give the hairs the best chance to all come through.

2. Dry skin is another thing that will prevent you from getting the best result from your waxing. This is due to the fact that if you have lots of dry flaky skin, when we apply the wax, we are unable to get to the route of the hair, causing the hair to break off. Also, your skin will be covered in lots of tiny red spots, giving the appearance of a plucked chicken, which would not happen if your skin is prepared correctly. Prevention, by exfoliating your skin with a scrub and using a good moisturiser, will ensure your legs are in the best possible condition to give a smoother wax.

3. Do not have a hot bath just before being waxed. A lot of people feel they are doing the right thing, hoping to open their pores so that the hairs come out easier. Not true, this can actually cause your skin to be damaged during waxing, the reason is, when you soak in a hot bath, you are softening the top layers of skin, you go to have your waxing and warm wax is applied to the area, when the wax is removed, it will remove more skin than we would like, giving the skin the appearance of it peeling, that may slightly scab over. It will heal and shouldn’t cause any long term problems, but its best to have a quick warm shower to prevent any damage to the skin.

LOOK #1 SHOW OF STRENGTH

A sleek, glossy blow-dry with dazzling, mirror-like shine, the secret to this look is that the healthier your hair is, the more light it can reflect. The gently curled-under ends keep things modern and not too poker-straight.

LOOK #2 LIGHT FANTASTIC

Gentle, luxe-looking waves combined with glossy, freshly rejuvenated colour are the key to ensuring natural movement stays sophisticated. Note the gleam in every undulating wave.

1620-1

Your stylist will personalise a modern updo especially for you. Choose a sleek, structural chignon, plait or a ponytail. The radiant elixir shine will make this style stand out.

1620-2

LOOK #4 SALON SECRET

The “no blow-dry” blow-dry: so subtle and understated, it just looks like you’ve woken up like that. Minimal root lift, sleek through the middle with naturally tumbling ends.

INTRODUCING SMARTBOND

20160717_LOREALSMARTBOND_SALLY MONTAGUE_4679

WHAT IS SMARTBOND?

SMARTBOND is L’Oréal Professionnel’s new smart ingredient added to your colour to minimise any potential damage & protect your hair.

BEFORE IMAGE

HOW DOES IT WORK?

SMARTBOND is a two-step process which allows the colourist to protect the hair & prevent damage during a technical service.

Loreal_smartbond_17july16_6W5A2058

  • SMARTBOND Step 1 contains maleic acid which works smartly during the chemical process, it limits the oxidative stress and preserves the strong bonds & captures the ions and allows the reconstruction of the weak bonds.
  • SMARTBOND Step 2 is applied to the hair once the colour or pre-lightener is removed as a pre-shampoo. It also contains maleic acid which continues to capture the ions to allow the weaker bonds to reform. It contains a blend of ceramides & polymers to provide condition & shine to the hair.
  • SMARTBOND customers can re-inforce the in salon service with Step 3, an at home conditioner (RRP £16.49) that continuously strengthens the fibre week after week, allowing you to keep the outstanding salon result simply at home by using once a week for 1-3 minutes.

Loreal_smartbond_17july16_6W5A3418 20160717_LOREALSMARTBOND_SALLY MONTAGUE_3918

WHY USE SMARTBOND?

  1. Rediscover the shine, evenness & softness of natural hair
  2. Hair fibre will have more bonds resulting in healthy and strong hair
  3. The smart formula leaves hair with a smooth luxurious ceramic feel with a texture that is less swollen & coarse
