QUENCH YOUR THIRST

Quench

Your Thirst There are many reasons for experiencing dry hair, for example your scalp may be dry and therefore not produce enough sebum or it could be part of your genetic make-up, but more often than not, dry hair is the result of our own doing – styling habits, hair colour and heat all result in the upset of our hairs natural balance. Dry hair is usually brittle, straw like, hard to comb and lacks lustre. As the sebum protecting layer is absent it makes hair thin and porous, this leaves the delicate dandruff layer underneath the hair rough and porous. These small imperfections in the layers allow water to escape from the hairs interior therefore drying it out. Using the correct shampoo, conditioner, treatment and styling products will help stop hair from drying out.

MONTHLY MAGAZINE 21


Here are our top tips for the treatment of dry hair: • Do not wash your hair every day. Shampooing the hair removes protective lipids so you should only wash when necessary.

• Use a treatment at least once

a week. Hair treatments will provide your hair with moisture and conditioning oils.

• Always use heat protection!

Straighteners and hairdryers are hard on the hair and remove its moisture. Try air-drying your hair as often as possible to minimise heat damage.

QUENCH SUMMER YOURCOLOUR THIRST

MONTHLY MAGAZINE 23


• Wash your hair using moderately warm

water and not excessively hot - hot water strips your hair of its natural substances.

• Alcohol found in many styling products can cause hair to dry out so check the ingredients and opt for alcohol free hairsprays, gels and foams.

• Always make sure your brushes and

combs are in good working order. Any damaged tools can cause breakage to the hair and its protective layers disturbing its natural smooth surface.

• After washing your hair comb

through gently using a large wide tooth comb. Damp hair is especially prone to damage.

LEEDS ACADEMY FOR HAIRDRESSING AND BARBERING LEEDS • WEST YORKSHIRE Leeds Academy for Hairdressing and Barbering (LAFHAB) was established in 2011 by husband and wife Beverley and Keith Boseley-Yemm. The academy was opened through a disappointment in the calibre of college trained job applicants. Since then the duo have put a package together that offers high quality training in both theory and practical, making sure students are job ready once the course is complete. LAFHAB’s mission is to be regarded as an outstanding training establishment within the community, offering a wide range of VTCT-accredited awards, certificates, apprenticeships and NVQ Diploma courses, as well as being a leading Habia Member School. Most recently LAFHAB recognised that some people want to achieve qualifications in both hairdressing and barbering, often because they want to work in, or run, a unisex salon. LAFHAB have therefore put together a tailored course that combines both NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing with specific units from NVQ Level 2 Barbering called, Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing with Barbering Units. LAFHAB are also pleased to announce that they have recently teamed up with John Peers, a multi awardwinning hairdresser with 45 years experience within the hairdressing industry. John is providing Masterclasses for the academy tutors, with the knowledge then being passed on to students. John brings a wealth of experience and creativity, picking up awards for British Hairdresser of the Year in 1990 and 1991. John has a number of high profile celebrity clients including Roberto Mancini, Anna Friel and Mary Portas, and is frequently seen at hairdressing shows with WAHL UK’s European Artistic Director, Simon Shaw. 76 Kirkgate, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS2 7DJ T: 01132457439 E: enquiries@lafhab.co.uk www.lafhab.co.uk

DOCTOR Nearly everyone at some point in their lives experiences some sort of hair problem they’d rather do without. This can include anything from dandruff, heat damage and bad colour to thinning hair, frizziness and bad hairstyles. Here are just a few of the latest hair dilemmas our experts have been helping with...

MONTHLY MAGAZINE 33


I want to dye my hair lighter to mask my greys. What do I ask for at a salon? Hi, I really need your advice. I have naturally very dark hair which I started to get greys in my early 20s, so I have been using shop bought hair dye to hide the greys for 15 years. I have only ever used the darkest brown hair dye as it is the closest to my natural colour. I want to dye my hair lighter to try to mask the greys for longer periods and I feel a lighter colour would be nice in the summer. I have never had my hair dyed at a salon and I want to be confident that I know what will work and what to ask for to get the best results. I think the colour I would like is a light brown with lighter highlights. When I last saw my hairdresser she said my hair was in good condition. I would really appreciate your help as it’s such a big change for me and I want to get it right. Thank you, Angie, East Sussex

HAIR DOCTOR

“Hi Angie, “As you have been using a permanent darkest brown colour for 15 years I am guessing your hair is extremely dark. To go lighter will be quite a big job and I am doubtful that you will achieve the colour you want in one appointment. “What will need to happen is firstly the colour will need to be lifted and lightened and then the new base shade applied. Then if the hair will lighten further highlights can be applied. “The main worry I would have is that your hair is stained with the dyes you have been using (cuticle stain). This happens when colour is applied over and over. It is then unable to be removed or take on anymore colour. I would be inclined to have an in-depth consultation with a senior colourist who enjoys corrective work and make sure you have a couple of strand tests done to see if it’s possible.” John Clark, Head of Colour at Brooks+Brooks, London

“This is something we deal with in our Brighton salon all the time and there are some simple ways to disguise the grey whilst maintaining a lovely rich base. You can have a dark tint, close to your natural colour, and then run highlights through to disguise the greys, or change to a lighter shade, still with the highlights, to brighten it up for the summer. “If the colour you have now is darker than the one you want, I’d recommend gently stripping the hair with effasor and then choosing a nice chestnut brown for the all-over colour, with a toner to make the highlights really rich. With hair that’s had repeated colouring or been stripped, we usually recommend L’Oreal’s INOA as it’s an oil-based colour and kinder to the hair than traditional colours, as well as being really long-lasting.” “I do hope that these suggestions will help you.” Alice Gazagnes, Senior Stylist & Colourist, Simon Webster Hair, Brighton

MONTHLY MAGAZINE 35


After years of heat styling my hair is so dry and frizzy, how can I combat this? “Hello, Hi, Could you please help me! Basically I have very long hair which I straighten every day. I have recently noticed my hair has gone very dry so I decided to work with my natural texture which is wavy, but not a good wave. When I wash my hair I leave it in a loose plait and then the next morning it just looks frizzy, dry and horrible. So I have two questions: 1. How can I work with my natural texture to create beautiful beach waves and stop the horrid frizz? 2. If I stop using heat on my hair for a couple of months and work with my natural texture will this help with the overall condition of my hair? If I can get my natural wave to actually look ok then I will probably stop straightening my hair. It’s a vicious circle, I straighten it because I hate my horrid waves yet the more I straighten it the worse the condition! Please help, I’m so fed up with this and on the verge of shaving it all off! Thank you, Sam, London

36

“You will be doing your hair a great deal of good by not straightening it every day so please stick with the natural waves and you will reap the rewards. “To help with the styling of the hair you should be using products that will help enhance and condition your curl. For example, use a curl shampoo and conditioner and use a styling product like ‘Mixed Chicks Leave-in Conditioner’ or even a light nonsticky mousse. “Another great product you can use to help with the condition of your hair is ‘Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer’, a pre-shampoo treatment which you massage into the hair and leave for 10-20 minutes covered with a plastic cap - you then shampoo and condition as normal. “I would also strongly recommend a good haircut to get rid of all the dry broken ends as these will just get worse over time and it is very hard to fix once snapped or broken. The biggest thing you should be aiming for is prevention. Start a fresh and from this day forward enjoy your fabulous locks.” Joseph Koniak, Artistic Director of Joseph Koniak and Eleven Hair, London


HAIR DOCTOR

“Hi Sam,

“Hi Sam,

“There are a few things you can do to repair hair damaged by overuse of heat tools. If you’re going to continue using the heat tools, then you need to use a good preparation product to provide some heatprotection whilst styling. These are easy to find and most good salons will do a range suitable for your hair type and be able to advise you how to use them. When styling with heat, they give off a mist or ‘steam’ and this is the product burning off and protecting your hair from the drying effects. Obviously, the ideal scenario though is to avoid heat styling as much as possible, especially if you know you’ve damaged your hair already.

“Firstly you are not alone! Thousands of ladies are caught in the net of heat damage and are now having to use heat to get the finish they want. It’s no problem – it’s my area of expertise.

“In that instance and in terms of styling, try a salt-spray for those beachy, wind-swept waves. Bumble & Bumble developed the original ‘Surf spray’ (now copied by numerous cosmetic companies) to create definition, texture and volume in natural wavy hair and it can be cocktailed with other products to add more polish if you want a more elegant, evening style. You can either spray it through the roots and lengths and leave to dry naturally or style it with a dryer if you prefer. They also do a range called ‘Straight’ which helps you achieve the straightened blow-dry without the straighteners and is much kinder to your hair and would allow you to keep the style without so much damage. “There are also products you can use to repair the damage to your hair caused by the straighteners and dryers. Bumble & Bumble also make a product range called ‘Quenching’ which is profoundly hydrating and was developed for exactly that purpose; restoring natural moisture, softness and strength. The complete range includes shampoo, conditioner, leave-in styling complex and deep conditioning masque, but you can mix and match depending on what you think you need most. They’re like antibiotics for your hair and as such should only be used for a limited amount of time to regain the moisture lost through heat-damage. Once you’re happy with the condition again, return to an everyday cleansing and conditioning product and just treat your hair with a Quenching masque every so often to maintain it. You can return to the products whenever you feel like the condition is suffering again.

“Your hair is dry because it lacks moisture, you need to condition it more or use a conditioning mask once a week. Also, there are lots of curl creams on the market which you apply to wet hair. Leave these in your hair whilst drying naturally or diffuse dry without touching it. “These creams are packed with love, moisture and hydration as well as weight to stop the curls from fluffing up. Apply three or four 50p sized amounts to your mid-lengths and ends and leave to dry – just watch the curls stay controlled and lush. “My favourite products for curls are the Bumble & Bumble Curl Conscious range - dedicated to curly hair the range never lets me down. The effects last a long time and give the hair the moisture it needs. There are others on the market but not as moisturising. Also regarding your beach curls, Bumble & Bumble have just launched their new surf shampoo and conditioner, the first of its kind. Team this with their surf spray and it gives the type of beach hair every girl wants – it’s amazing!” Nelson Brown of browns in Dumfries

“Hope this helps!” Sophie Webster, salon owner, Simon Webster Hair, Brighton

Every time I curl my hair with tongs or curlers it drops out! Hi, I want curls in my hair but every time I try tonging it or use curlers it just drops out! I have used mousse, volumising shampoos etc but nothing works. Can you help me with what I might need to do? Thanks, Claire, Sunderland

“Some people’s hair unfortunately will need lots of help in making it curl and keeping it there! If your hair is long heavy and poker straight then it really is down to products and the method in which it is curled that will decide on whether it will last. Try using strong volumising products when the hair is wet, drying them into the hair and then using a very strong hold hairspray on each section before you wind it around the curling tong. “I would also use smaller sections and consider using a smaller tong as this will give a tighter curl that should drop over time. If your hair is one length then maybe a few layers would be beneficial to remove some weight that pull down on the curls. I don’t recommend perming the hair to give a curl as this won’t give a stylish look, rather a more 80s shaggy image which I am sure you don’t want.” John Clark, Head of Colour at Brooks+Brooks, London

“Hi Claire, “May I suggest you find a good salon that can give your hair a soft volume permanent wave; this will not have to be a strong curly wave but a soft one so that when you set or curl your hair it will hold. Such permanent waves can last up to three months depending on the wear and tear and length of your hair. “If your hair is in good condition and there is no bleach on it then a soft perm should be fine. Just make sure the stylist uses large perm rods/rollers so that the perm is really soft. Do not use any small perm rods/rollers; these can make your hair frizzy which is definitely not what you want. “Alternatively, (you may not want to go down the chemical route) try to set your hair using medium or smaller setting rollers and a reasonably strong setting lotion, gel or mousse - use this product on the roots of your hair for extra hold and lift. Once set let the hair dry well, give it five minutes to cool off then brush out vigorously. If the curl is too strong keep brushing it until the hair falls smoother and the curls or waves are just what you want. If your hair is too curly that way, brush the hair out after it is still warm; this will take some of the stronger waves or curls out. “I do hope that these suggestions will help you.” Pierre Alexandre of Pierre Alexandre, Manchester

HAIR DOCTOR

I always have red/orange undertones showing through once I dye my hair. How do I get rid of these? Hi there, I had my hair bleach shampooed in order to achieve red hair. I am naturally a level 2, maybe 3, brown so I was told it was necessary. The red hair dye that was applied was a semi-permanent so after awhile the red started to fade and the brassy orange my hair was bleached too showed through, so I box dyed it red again. The brassy orange has returned and now I just want to get back to my normal hair colour. How would I do this? I have tried dying it ash brown but the red and orange always comes back. I am so tired of having four different colours in my hair, please help! Thank you, Merehuka, Portland

“Hi Merehuka, “I suggest stripping the colour with L’Oreal’s effasor mixed with 6% oxydant so it’s gentler on the hair, then we could go for an oil-based colour which will help improve the condition. A shade like INOA 5.18 (an ashy brown) would be good and help restore the shine which must have suffered from the home colouring. Always use a sulfate-free shampoo afterwards to help maintain the colour for longer.” Alice Gazagnes, Senior Stylist & Colourist, Simon Webster Hair, Brighton

“After having hair bleach shampooed the hair is permanently lightened to reveal the warm undercoat, which in your case as your hair is naturally very dark is orange and red. The best plan of action to return the hair to its natural colour (as close as possible) is to use a semipermanent shade. Once this fades have it reapplied, over time the colour should build up and not return as dramatically to its orange state. “Remember that lightened hair is porous so colours will always fade from the hair like this. Regular trims and moisturising treatments should help you.” John Clark, Head of Colour at Brooks+Brooks, London

Emily Hart of Errol Douglas is Announced New Ambassador for Transformation Connections Hair Extensions Great4Hair Extensions will be working with Emily Hart, Senior Stylist at Errol Douglas, to launch the new Transformation Connections advertising campaign to the hairdressing industry.

“Hair extensions can be fantastic but only if they are both safe and natural looking, Transformation Connections completely fit the brief. And from a stylist’s perspective they’re also great because they are quick to apply.

Emily has worked at the renowned Errol Douglas salon in Mayfair, London for over nine years and has become one of the leading stylists for clients seeking beautiful and natural looking hair extensions. She also has expertise across European, Afro-Caribbean and mixed race textured hair.

Michael Quinn is Appointed Educator for JOICO Michael Quinn Hairdressing, located in the heart of Belfast, has been completely revamped to celebrate the success of Michael Quinn’s new role as an educator for the JOICO haircare brand – a particular honour as he is the first and only one to hold this title in Northern Ireland.

Transformation Connection hair extensions are innovative single strand hair extensions which are applied and removed without the use of glue, heat or weaving. Transformation Connections are reusable and can be reapplied for up to a year if clients attend regular appointments with their hairstylist. Unlike other hair extension systems, Transformation Connections can be applied in less than two hours and removed in under half an hour. Commenting on her new role Emily said, “Many women would love to have hair extensions but they don’t want to risk damaging their hair, whilst other women have been put off by hair extensions which look great but come with a long list of maintenance rules to follow - no one wants to work that hard to keep their hair looking good. “Transformation Connections are a real advancement in hair extensions, application and removal without glue, heat or weaving and they are reusable. There are genuinely no down sides to Transformation Connections, my clients love them. I am proud to be the new ambassador.” Errol Douglas MBE trained Emily as a sixteen year old apprentice and considers her one of his most successful protégés. Errol added,

“Emily has not looked back since introducing the service into our salon. Finally with Transformation Connections, hair extensions can be safe, beautiful and easy.”

This bright and spacious salon prides itself on its comfortable and relaxed atmosphere which has been redesigned and adapted to fit Michael’s new educator role. A colour and styling station has been introduced along with a dedicated area where Michael and his creative team can host various training seminars to hairdressing students. Who better to learn from then those who have undergone training at JOICO’s Artistic Institute in Helmond, Netherlands? The new salon design allows more space so clients can fully relax and enjoy their treatments; this includes the new wash basins which are complete with massage chairs, enhancing the pampering experience. At Michael Quinn Hairdressing they offer a fantastic range of services which includes cutting, colouring, styling and creative upstyles, as well as a wide range of JOICO haircare products that clients can use to maintain their new style at home.

Clipso St Albans Attend L’Oreal Professionnel’s Voices Simon Cox, Managing Director of Clipso St Albans, along with several of his team members attended L’Oreal Professionnel’s Voices featuring the Westrow Art Team. Voices is a unique opportunity to see some of the most inspirational, successful and talented hairdressers and colourists in the UK. It is a series of evening events held at L’Oréal Professionnel’s educational sites at which the latest collections are performed by some of the industry’s most inspiring names. Whether it’s a commercial cut and colour or an avantgarde look, this is a must-see for any stylist or technician. Simon Cox, Managing Director of Clipso commented, “The evening began with an opening video montage of images, shows and great colour work created by the Westrow Art Team. Steve Rowbottom who established Westrow was our host for the evening and did a Q&A to start the evening. Afterwards he presented the models who were wearing strong short cuts softened with soft loose finishes to keep the looks feminine. The colours were excellent and well explained. I will definitely be incorporating one of the techniques shown in my own cuts within the salon to create fun looks for my clients and something that is not fully permanent. All in all it was a really good evening of inspiration.” Gemma Burke, Master Hair Designer at Clipso commented, “I felt so inspired whilst watching the Westrow Art Team. I have learnt new techniques and colour mixes that I can now use on my own clients within the salon.” Leah Malski, Hair Designer at Clipso commented, “I found the presentation interesting and have learnt a lot from Westrow`s knowledge that I can take back into the salon, such as different colour placements and different colour mixing to achieve different shades and colour effects.” Veronika Stanova, Master Hair Designer at Clipso commented, “I enjoyed the evening with the Westrow Art Team; it’s always good to see stage work. The presentation was fantastic. The colour and cutting techniques were refreshing and inspiring. At the end of the event I had a closer look at the models colours to see first-hand the blended technique the colourist had used to prevent a block effect, I loved the looks.” MONTHLY MAGAZINE 49

has become much more natural, with that signature ponytail barely containing her gorgeous, brunette locks. Clearly she’s made quite an impact as we’ve had customers asking us in the salons to replicate the Lara look, especially with the looseness of this ponytail being a perfect style for the festival season.” This attainable look provided the inspiration for HOB Salons to create the special cut, supported by a plethora of customer requests. HOB are now rolling out ‘The Lara’ to all 24 of their salons, complete with instructions to their stylists explaining how to create the hairstyle to service any clients inspired by Lara Croft. Claire added, “A lot of people draw inspiration from fictional characters, but we think this is definitely the first time we’ve ever produced a style based on a computer game character.” The Tomb Raider reboot is the fastest-selling game in the franchise to date, developed by Crystal Dynamics, written by Rhianna Pratchett and featuring True Blood’s Camilla Luddington as Lara Croft, the title’s reinvention of one of gaming’s most iconic characters has won widespread critical acclaim.

Arrocca Hairdressing Training Centre Launches in Berkhamsted What do local business leaders, a football legend and an MP all have in common? They are all in support of the newly opened Arrocca hairdressing training centre which was recently launched in Berkhamsted on the 13th May. Arrocca is the brainchild of experienced hairdresser, Trisha Buller, who also owns Ciente - one of Berkhamsted’s most successful salons. Having spent over 30 years in the industry, Trisha believes that now is the right time to share her knowledge with those at the start of their careers. The new purpose built training facility is based in a beautifully refurbished building in Dwights Yard (behind Villagio), and is supported by the leading Joshua Galvin Academy. Arrocca has the capacity to train up to 20 school leavers and apprentices to National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) in Hairdressing Levels Two and Three. Stateof-the-art theory rooms and a real salon environment allow learners to gain both skills and confidence. Run by an expert team of dedicated trainers and assessors, Arrocca is a new centre of excellence for hairdressing education and takes a different approach by returning to industry core values. The hand-picked team is led by director Trisha, who is an experienced hairdressing educator with an intimate knowledge of hairdressing skills, trichology and science and successful salon management. In launching Arrocca, Trisha is delighted to be able to share her passion for hairdressing, passing new skills and creative vision to the next generation of hairdressing professionals. Trisha explains, “The Arrocca team is incredibly dedicated and our training will focus on the traditional and fundamental skills of hairdressing and customer service.”

At the centre’s official launch Trisha was joined by MP David Morris, who is an exsalon owner, hairdresser and a champion of state registration for hairdressers in Parliament. David said, “Trisha and her team have a great vision to offer high-quality hairdressing training to people in their local area which I hope will provide quality education and employment opportunities.” Ex Watford and England Footballer, Luther Blissett, who helps young people in the area as part of his Team 48 motor racing business, was equally enthusiastic about the potential offered by the new facility. Luther commented, “I believe people like myself and Trisha who have had successful careers have a responsibility to do what we can to help young people living locally to enjoy similar opportunities.”

This is a view which is shared by BDCC Chairman David Steadman, “As one of my first functions as chairman, I am delighted to endorse a new training centre in the town for young people starting off their careers. I am sure this will be a successful venture and a welcome initiative to add to the town’s reputation.” With Arrocca well underway, Trisha is keen to ensure she and her team of expert trainers share their knowledge with as many people in the region as possible. Describing her vision Trisha says, “Hairdressing is an industry of which I am incredibly proud and I will do what I can to ensure it continues to enjoy a superb reputation.” Arrocca: Unit 2, Dwights Yard, Berkhamsted HP4 3HB www.arroccahairdressingschool.co.uk
