Your hair changes with time. So should your haircare programme


ith age, our hair can become weak, start to thin and look dull. The hair texture also tends to change leaving it feeling coarse and dry, while the scalp feels tighter.

MAXI At last! A way to keep long locks luscious and banish split ends

xclusive to Headmasters salons The Maxi is the ultimate maintenance treatment for long hair. It keeps tresses in super healthy condition whilst maintaining maximum length. First a full scalp and hair analysis is performed, followed by an intensive treatment and prescription hair masque. Then the hair is wrapped in a hot towel to really seal in the moisture. Next is the maxi cut which eliminates split ends without affecting style or length. Hair is trimmed taking the minimum off the ends then dried in

sections and any split hairs are removed along the entire length of the hair. This treatment takes 1hour & 30mins but you leave the salon with super-swingy, ultrahealthy seriously long locks. Jonathan Soons of the Headmasters Pro Session Team developed this treatment in response to client demand. “Many of my clients wanted to keep their hair long but hated stringy ends, which means lots of care and regular maintenance. The Maxi is the perfect answer for keeping super long hair luscious.” Prices from £150.



It’s always the quiet ones, and Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud is no exception to that rule. We’re loving her quirky British style and her hair just gets prettier and prettier. She’s definitely the new red head to channel! If you’re a natural red head ask your Headmasters colourist for ultra-fine highlights or delicate balliage to copy Nicola’s soft strawberry blonde hue.


25 October – 27 November. Call 08700 841 400 to book, or log on to to find your closest salon.



The most requested CELEB CUTS‌

Discover the celeb styles that are really causing a stir on the salon floor. Headmasters reveals how to get this season’s most coveted A-list styles. RACHEL BILSON This long layered cut is flattering on all face shapes, works on wavy or straight hair, plus it adds interest to long hair making it a instant salon success. Ask for long layers from chin to chest and a gentle U shape at the back.

KATE MOSS The Kate Moss midi cut has been copied by style seekers everywhere. It works really well on fine to medium hair with a slight wave. To get the signature Kate Moss slightly dishevelled edge ask your stylist for layers from the cheekbones, a little height at the crown and the ends all one length. 6


KIERA KNIGHTLEY Kiera Knightley chic has been a growing phenomena over the last few years and her latest blunt fringe has been copied by many a svelte Kiera wannabe. The long blunt fringe skims her lashes giving her a ‘come hither’ appeal. Ask your stylist for a fringe that reaches the bridge of your nose and style it with a round brush to get it to curl under. This fringe needs a bit of maintenance – a little trim every two weeks is essential to keep it in check. The good news is that fringe trims are complimentary between cuts at all Headmasters salons!

No one causes a salon sensation like Victoria Beckham. Whenever she changes her style salon chairs start buzzing with ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ comments. Her latest pixie style has been a resounding success, and it will suit you if you have a heart shaped or oval face and are happy showing off all your features. It’s amazing at highlighting sharp cheekbones and drawing attention to the eyes. Ask your stylist to softly taper the hair at the neck for a more feminine shape.

Paul Mitchell Super Clean Spray, £10.75


HOW TO ACHIEVE A BELIEVABLE BLONDE… Take inspiration from Gisele and ask your colourist to use a technique called balliage for a super natural result. Use a blonde a few tones lighter than your natural colour an inch or two below the hairline, and the colour should get lighter towards the ends of the hair, as if naturally lightened by the sun. Your Headmasters colourist can achieve this by cleverly blending professional colours along the hair shaft.

t’s the low maintenance colour that’s taking the celebrity world by storm. Long term devotees Gisele (blondette’s original poster girl) and Elle Macpherson show us how to work it, while newbies Lauren Conrad and Emma Watson prove it’s the most flattering colour choice out there. Herman Ho from the Headmasters Pro Session Team advises, “The key to achieving this colour is


to have a lot of your natural base colour showing through if you are dark blonde or light brown. If you’re darker ask your Headmasters colourist for a light brown base. Then ask for gradually toned highlights, which are blonder at the front and darker at the back. Golden blonde works really well at the back whilst baby-blonde highlights are perfect around the face and on the ends.”

Hair problems solved by our experts


My hair doesn’t fall in a natural parting, so how do I create a natural parting that suits me?




JAMES RECOMMENDS: 1. Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel, £8.50 Holds without making your hair greasy the next day!


2. L’Oréal Hairmix Supreme Smooth, £12.60 Gently smoothes and tames frizz into submission!

3. Paul Mitchell Super Strong Liquid Treatment, £13.50 This daily leave-in formula makes hair up to 60% stronger after just one use and leaves damaged hair silky smooth. 4. Kérastase Aqua Oleum, £15.00 This in-salon ritual really penetrates the hair shaft and makes an immediate difference.



James Busby from the Headmasters Pro Session Team advises, “If you have a long or oval face, part your hair at the side. This will add fullness to your face. If you have a square or round face, part in the middle to elongate your face. To get a parting to look natural you need to style it from wet. Part wet hair with a comb and apply a little styling cream (1&2) around the parting. Blowdry your hair in the direction you want the hair to fall. Once dry add a little hairspray to keep any strays in place!


My hair constantly has dry ends. I have thick hair but I rarely use heated tools and always condition it. Please don’t say cut them off – I have regular trims but they keep coming back!


James says, “Some hair is just naturally dryer than other hair, just like some skins are dryer than others. You need to take some simple steps to give your hair a little extra care everyday, and that will make a huge difference. Use an oil-based serum on the ends everyday to hydrate your hair and, once a month, have an in-salon hair ritual (3&4) to really nourish those ends.” 23
