OLAPLEX

A REVOLUTIONARY NEW SERVICE

When a new ‘hair miracle’ appears we tend to be critical and wait to see results before introducing a new service. After hearing about the much hyped OLAPLEX earlier this year we tested the service on our stylists and have been exceedingly impressed with the results.

THE SCIENCE

OLAPLEX is a ‘bond perfecting solution’ which basically acts as scaffolding for your hair. The solution contains one active ingredient designed to reconnect the disulphide sulphur bonds which tend to be broken down by hair colouring and thermal styling. OLAPLEX is free from silicones, parabens, oils and aldehydes.

WHAT’S USED

For hair that has been compromised chemically or thermally, the OLAPLEX BOND MULTIPLIER is the first step used by your Stylist. The Bond Multiplying System rebuilds the strength, structure and integrity to the point where a colour or chemical service would be feasible once again. This may be done before and/or after a chemical service and is compatible with all hair types from virgin to extremely compromised chemically treated hair.

The next step used by your Stylist is OLAPLEX BOND PERFECTOR, this is used to link the remaining disulfide bonds before and after service restoring the strength, structure and integrity of the hair.

The OLAPLEX service will add approximately 15-30 minutes to your appointment time.

THE SALON SERVICE

OLAPLEX SINGLE WITH COLOUR £30

OLAPLEX DUO £50 (when Olaplex is used in more than once in an appointment, effectively a ‘double’ shot of Olaplex)

OLAPLEX can be used in conjunction with pretty much every salon service from highlights to Keratin Smoothing and hair extensions.

LAURA ROBERTSON GRADUATES IN PRESTIGIOUS CEREMONY AT CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS

We’re very proud to announce the graduation of a third L’Oreal Colour Specialist within the salon group. Laura Robertson, L’Oreal ID Artist and Manager of our Belper salon has recently graduated from the L’Oreal Professionnel Colour Specialist class of 2014, putting her in the top 1% of L’Oreal colourists in the UK.

Laura graduated in a prestigious ceremony at Central Saint Martins school of design in London and now joins graduates Lizzie Fox (Sadler Gate) and Alice Cronin (Ashbourne) as a certified Colour Specialist.  Ferne Baker (The Old Hall) and Zoe Stevenson (Duffield) have also just completed the course and will graduate in May 2016.

The technically-savvy group are well placed to offer expert advice on colour correction and the latest colouring techniques after each successfully completing the course, which sets the standard for colourists dedicated to technical excellence. The Colourists were chosen to complete the degree because of their existing level of expertise and gained more than 90% in their final examinations. They now share an understanding of creative and on-trend colouring techniques that is second to none.

Says Director Sally Montague, “We are delighted to have another L’Oreal Colour Specialist within the Sally Montague Hair Group. Gaining a distinction is a fantastic accolade for Laura and the group as a whole.”

DEVELOPMENT OFF THE HORSE AND JOCKEY YARD…

We have now submitted plans to Derbyshire Dales District Council to build a luxury salon and spa on the land off the Horse and Jockey yard in Ashbourne town centre.

The development has been designed by Sally’s brother, architect Matthew Montague, and will encompass the land off the Horse and Jockey yard which has been disused for a number of years. The salon and spa will create at least fourteen job opportunities, in addition to the existing employees of Sally Montague Hair Group.

We launched in Ashbourne on St John Street in November 2009, since then the Ashbourne premises have grown to cover three floors and two separate buildings, showing the need for a purpose built property to house the ever expanding business.

The proposed development will be set over two floors located around a courtyard, effectively linking the Horse and Jockey yard through to The Greenman development. Bringing back into use one of the last derelict areas in Ashbourne town centre, the project will create not only a new salon and spa but will grow the independent lifestyle activities and retail opportunities that Ashbourne has to offer.
