IMG 7115 Hairshop Salon trends for 2017Skin that’s fresh, no more contour! Let your skin breath, achieve radiant healthy glowing fresh skin that is top on the list for 2017.  Decleor aromatherapy and phototherapy natural skincare, beauty treatments and cosmetics based on essentials oils and plant extracts gives your skin exactly what it needs for face and body. Tip From the Hairshop beauty room “dramatic angry bird arches are finally dated, it’s now straight boyish brows that make you look younger so ditch the pencils and reach for tinted gel to hold fresh brows that are lightly filled in. last year was all about the Matt lip, so move over,  the fresh gloss lip shine is right on trend. Blush with the same gloss lip tone and adding the same tone to the eyes brings everything together for a healthy glow. To finish the look get skilled with your liquid liner, wing it out for a dramatic lift”. Clearly 2017 is your year to shine.



What’s hot on the salon floor! One-length hair ultra straight with a polished rich finish, chic and simple,  is making heads turn for 2017. Creat your look using Redken satin wear 02 lotion, ghd brush size 2 and the platinum styler.

Smart blondes have more fun!

Yes that’s right! you got to be smart to be blonde theses days. The trend to be blonde has taken on an edgier look, and often with all-over platinum. So before you take the plunge and go blonde, discover a new way to make a beautiful blonde and protect your hair while colouring. Smart bond is our new generation strengthening system that has been specifically formulated to work in synergy with our pre-lightener and colour products. I love it for many different reasons but most of all i love the results. It is a three-step process which allows the colourist to protect the hair & prevent damage during a technical service, leaving your hair soft and glossy.

Bonding SMARTBOND is added to the colour mix.
It works smartly during the chemical process to preserve the strong bonds and allow the reconstruction of the weak bonds.


Bonding SMARTBOND is applied to the hair once the colour or lightener is removed as a pre-shampoo. It continues to capture the ions to allow the weaker bonds to reform and provides condition & shine to the hair with a blend of ceramides & polymers.


Re-inforce the in salon service with Step 3, an at home conditioner that continuously strengthens the fibre week after week, allowing you to keep the outstanding salon result simply at home by using once a week for 1-3 minutes.


So when look in the mirror and find your hair is brassie, dry or damaged, if its not softer, shiny, healthy, if your not getting admired or turning heads, sadly ladies, I’m sorry to have to say your a dumb blonde!

So why not get smart and book your next appointment at,  try it out and see the results for yourself.

In addition to this as a first time smart blonde we are giving away one free in-salon treatment with your follow on appointment.
