It is always a joy to create a wonderful new look for someone and see them leave feeling more confident, and self assured. We never underestimate the power a new hair style and/or a new colour has. A new look does wonders for confidence, positivity and perhaps even a new found get up and go attitude. That is why we spend time with everyone, making sure we understand what they are looking to achieve, suggesting styles and colours that may suit them, and giving them general hair care advice once we have achieved the desired look. You are welcome to pop in and discuss your requirements over a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit, completely free and you are under no obligation to book.

Warmer months see an increase in those who suffer with Hayfever. This can be a really frustrating time for many. Here we have compiled some top tips to help you through the Hayfever season. Always keep an eye on our facebook page for latest articles and information.
Yes January can certainly be an odd month. For many it is a time for new ideas, changes and resolutions but with it comes the aftermath of the Christmas celebrations and the "what have I got to look forward to." Well here are my handty tips to get you through this long cold month.
1/. Plan a girls or lads night in where everyone brings left overs - cheap and lots of fun.
2/. Take up a hobby, or new exercise. These don't have to cost a fortune, joining a local book club at the library, or walking cost no money at all and keep your mind active and increase seratonin levels (the happy hormone).
3/. Lack of sunshine can cause you to get depressed - taking a Vitamin D supplement can improve mood and prevent S.A.D disorder.
4/. Plan your year. Having things to look forward to helps to beat those January Blues. It also helps you budget.
5/. Put time aside for yourself. Relaxing with a book, having a hot bath and eating nutritiously all help with boosting your mood.
The winter weather is rapidly heading our way. The change in climate means we feel a quick change in temperature, the heating goes on and the wind dries out our skin. Check out our top tips to help your skin this winter.
1/. Check your moisturiser, the products you use in Spring and Summer, may not be the best choice during the winter months, choose a moisturiser with added Hydration, we love Frankincense Hydrating Cream (rrp £27.50) which is clinically proven to moisturise for 24hrs.
2/. Use a face mask that does not dry out the skin, many clay based masks work to remove moisture from the skin. We love Wild Rose Beauty Balm (rrp £38) for its wonderful organic ingredients which work to hydrate and nourish dry and dehydrated skin.
3/. Don't underestimate the power of the sun in the winter months, make sure you use a sunscreen if you are going to be outdoors. Neal's yard Wild Rose facial sunscreen SPF 30 (rrp £25) combines protection, moisture balancing and a wonderful fragrance to ensure your skin stays supple and nurtured.
4/. Invest in a facial once a month. Not only does this give your skin the additional nourishment it needs, it also brings about a sense of calm and well being. Reducing stress, and reducing the appearance of fine lines is always a bonus ahead of the party season.
5/. Using a Humidifier in your home can negate the drying effect of central heating. We particularly love the range from Neal's Yard,
