COMMONWEALTH GAMES ATHLETES AT THE OLD HALL

Last week we were delighted to welcome the young Derbyshire athletes who have been selected to compete at the Commonwealth Games next month on the Gold Coast.

The athletes, their mums and team members from the Derbyshire Institute of Sport all enjoyed hair and make up appointments in preparation of their celebratory dinner at Seven restaurant on Pride Park.

Our stylists were on hand for blow dries while Leanne (Spa Therapist at Ashbourne) used Airbase make up to give the athletes a flawless make up application.

Airbase is applied using a spray gun and offers a light application with a long lasting and full coverage. It’s ideal for special occasions and so we knew it would be ideal to use for the athletes who were being interviewed on TV that evening.

 

The Derbyshire Institute of Sport was inspired by the London Olympic Games and was launched in 2012 as Derbyshire’s legacy programme. Although Derbyshire had produced champions in the past, their aim is to create a systematic model, leaving less to chance, and giving athletes the best possible chance of achieving their Olympic dream. You can find out more about the Derbyshire Institute of Sport here.

OUR LATEST SHOOT

OUR LATEST PHOTOSHOOT

Members of Art Team and stylists from across the salon group took part in our latest shoot at The Old Hall which was photographed by Paul Gill. You may recognise our models who are all clients and friends of the salon and in Lydia’s case, have modelled in each of our photographic collections over the past five years! We always use models who we feel reflect our clients and produce looks which inspire you to try something new, from a peachy or pink tone to a shorter and more textured cut or bolder colour.

The make up for all models is by Chloe, Spa Therapist at our Ashbourne salon using High Definition.

This 70’s inspired copper is by Laura Robertson, Colour Specialist & Art Team member from the Belper salon. This shorter fringe looks fantastic on Rochelle and the styling compliments her colour perfectly.

This grunge-inspired look is modelled by Lydia who is currently on the cover of our Hair Guide in a much more polished looking image. Hair by Art Team Members Lizzie (Colour Specialist at Sadler Gate) and Deesh from the Duffield Salon.

Another look by Lizzie and Deesh. Ellie’s colour was transformed into a multi tonal but clean blonde and styled into a ‘faux bob’ for the shoot but it is actually shoulder length!

Alice and Imogen from Ashbourne enhanced Amy’s natural colour for maximum shine.

Katherine and Lorna from The Old Hall worked on this fantastic colour blend on Kirsty. They kept it smooth and straight on the final image so the colour technique can be clearly seen.

Last but not least is this fantastic work by Millie at Sadler Gate. We love the pink and peach tones which compliment Mabel’s skin tone and colouring.

Introducing PHD

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.
