6 Tips on Winter Haircare & Hairstyles For Lockdown 2.0

Who doesn’t want their hair to look amazing all-year round? Winter is one of the most damaging times for your hair. The cold weather outside can dry your hair out until it loses its shine that you’ve worked so hard for! However, by looking after it in the right ways, you can prevent that winter wear. With the salons closed again, we know many of you are worried about the condition of your hair, especially if you are accustomed to regular hair spa sessions at the salon. Which is why we have decided to give you a few tips to keep you going for the cold and wet months!

So what are the key steps to looking after your hair in winter?

1. Make sure you are keeping your hair moisturised! Using a hydrating mask once a week will help restore your locks' natural oils that are often stripped away during the winter months.  Check out the ‘treatments’ for healthy hair we’d highly recommend for this season on our website! Whether it’s the conditioning leave in spray or renewing mask, they all work like magic!

2. You must ensure you are always using some form of heat protectant; whether that's a spray or a cream, it can make a huge difference to the health of your hair! This would act as a barrier between your styling tool and your hair. It seals moisture and smooths out the cuticle, ensuring your hair is protected, smooth and soft!
3. Use Argan oil after you wash your hair! Argan Oil is a great product to use during the winter months as it moisturises your hair instantly. Make sure the oil is not too heavy for your hair type. Ask your hairstylist for a recommendation for your specific type or give us a call/email us and we’d be more than happy to help!

Keeping your hair in shape whilst working from home can be difficult, especially if you want to avoid using heat and stylers. So below are a few basic hairstyles that work wonders and are a must for your lockdown hair diary - be it from zoom calls to family catchup to even a cheeky virtual date! 

1. A sleek top knot is an elegant and simple way to style your hair in a rush. Whether you're on 3 day old hair or freshly washed hair, this style works no matter what. This slick back bun means your hair will be out of your way all day, and well looked after

2. Slicking your hair back into a low bun is a great way to keep your hair looking professional yet with minimal effort. You’ve seen this hair-do everywhere, from runways to red carpets and magazines. It's iconic. Whether it’s slicked into a ponytail or left cascading down the back of your head, when you slick back hair, it radiates sophistication. 

3 This half-up, half-down hairstyle is the ideal look for anyone hunting for a fuss-free ‘do. From day to night, this half-up pony is great for all hair lengths and textures.. Since only half of your hair is pulled into a bun, your loose hair will still frame your face flawlessly.

Whilst I’m sure many of you rushed to the salon to get your hair done one more time before the lockdown 2.0, we know many of our clients were unable to book in so last minute. But fret not, only a few more weeks left till we can go back to doing what we love - your hair! To ensure all our clients are Christmas ready, we have started taking bookings for once we open from Thursday 3rd December - so don’t forget to book your appointment early on to avoid disappointment.
