Celebrating Another Christmas at the Hairshop

Christmas at the Hairshop is by far my favorite time of the year in our salon, i feel it is the little things like the traditions about this season which keep us all excited. Small extras are perceived as little luxuries, a glass of jenny’s special recipe mulled wine, songs from our favorite Christmas playlist can set the tone for a more relaxing and mood enhancing experience, but most of all it is you, yes you, our clients that truly make it special for us.

In this time of Christmas cheer, we give thanks for you. We value your friendship and custom, but most of all we appreciate your confidence in us. Counting you among our customers is something for which we are especially grateful.
We look forward sharing more stories and making memories that last much longer than any hairstyle we could ever create. We are always happy to see you in the salon and hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with us here at the Hairshop.

Hair loss

The notion that thinning hair is only a mans problem is completely wrong, women actually make up a large percentage of hair loss sufferers. With forty percent of women having visible hair loss by the time they are age 40. Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for self image and emotional well-being, we also recognize that hair loss in women is a serious life altering condition that is no longer ignored. Abnormal hair loss can happen in several ways, some have hair thinning all over, while others see their hair parting spreading, some develop baldness at the crown of the head, or you may notice dramatic clumps falling out when you shampoo or brush, you may also just thin slowly over time. If your concerned about changes in your hair always consult with your doctor first.

Luckily for you L’oreal have paved the way with ground breaking research in this area, in salon we meet clients on a daily basis, both men and women, concerned about their hair loss. One of my favorites and by far the most successful product on the market has to be without a doubt Kerastase specifique this amazing product has set an unbeatable foundation when treating hair loss.

I would also like to recommend brushing your hair and scalp as often as possible through the day, this stimulates the scalp encouraging new growth, it also has therapeutic effects helping you to relax and feel good, especially when somebody else does it for you. A brush I would highly recommend for this the shine brush, a soft bristle brush, it smooths the hair giving it a soft silky finish helping you look revived and healthy.

If you are concerned about hair loss or would like to chat about it, why not come and see me in the salon, were we can have a chat about your options going forward.
