Insider hair resolutions for 2013

Anna Bloomer, Senior Stylist

Look after your scalp: “Before styling, use a treatment to correct either a dry or an oily scalp – both are volume killers. A healthy scalp helps promote healthy roots which are the scaffolding to any high volume style.”

Jessica Speechly, Head of Colour

Give hair some air: “I always advise clients to allow freshly washed hair to air dry a while once a week. Half natural dry followed by a finish with a blow dry halves the heat styling impact without compromise on a finish - small change big difference over a year.”

Eve Owusu, Head Of Afro

Make frizz a friend not foe: “Sometimes frizz gets a bad rep; we don’t remember its advantages. Embrace it! It’s a great foundation for creating volume. Use a diffuser on a high heat/slow speed setting for some seriously big hair.”

Karis O’Brien, Creative Stylist

Eau plus one: “Water, the poster element for moisture, can actually dry the hair when not combined with a styling product. It’s the mix of both that produces the formula for daily definition and bounce in curls. Using a water spray alone may cause dryness on heat-styled hair and limits the curl quality on hair left to dry naturally. A few pumps of a styling cream through dry hair is a great style reviver.”

Gemma Humes, Senior Afro Stylist

Flip it to boost it: “A really simple technique for boosting volume in any hair type is to flip your head upside down and massage the scalp.”

Jade Blackley, Colour Master

Gloss, gloss and gloss some more: “Great colour is boosted by the condition, and I’m a big advocate of the colour gloss, applied clear to completely ‘lift’ a colour for up to six washes. It’s a great in between visits solution and a great value way of increasing the longevity of your colour.”

Jasmin Allen, Colour Master

48 hour lock in: “This time gap between a salon colour and washing at home is important. It allows the hair to settle in the hair strands so that the gloss achieved is locked in. It’s a simple rule that really protects the end result.”

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
