In with the New...

If you like our facebook page, follow our website, or indeed visit the salon, then you will know that there is a lot of hype in the Company over our newest arrival - Ashley Graham.

Ashley worked in Trevor Sorbie, and has done work on Vogue, ASOS, GQ and even contributed to shows with Victoria Beckham (did you hear the sound that name made as it dropped?!).  So as you can imagine we are extremely excited to have such a creative mind join the force at Tommy's in Llandudno.

After all the hype of Summer, we thought it would be nice to introduce Ashley to our online audience through  some hints and tips that he recommends for Winter.  So here he is Ladies & Gentlemen!

If you were lucky enough to have a summer, you may of had a lovely relaxing time, but guaranteed your hair will be more stressed than Tulisa's PR Company.  A combination of sun, sea, chlorine, and 'dip dye', is going to leave your hair dry, brittle, and resembling straw.

After a week with the team, and bashing the books doing my homework on the amazing product range the salons have, I have had the chance to put the study into practice and here are my top tips for combating summer stressed hair, and preparing your stress laden locks into winter prepared perfection!

TIP #1

Invest in Conditioning Treatments

They are not just an after thought- and believe me I know how pushed for time people can be, but lack of time is no excuse for poor hair condition.

Repair Rescue in particular is a great treat for hair, avoiding the sun is not enough to repair damaged hair strand, and you need to put protein directly into the hair, which will also nourish it making it feel moisturised, and bringing the life back into the hair.  Repair Rescue have salon exclusive shots that can be done at back wash when you are having your hair cut or blow dried, and you can take home the Repair Rescue Smooth Express which is a box of 'tear open' sachets, so they are easy to use in the bath or shower, and need to be in your hair for 30 seconds!  I spend more time than that trying to find the rubber ducky!

TIP #2

Ditch the Highlights

Consider a more global colour rather than highlights.  Blondes go for more warmer hues of golden blonde, whilst brunettes need glossy shiny hair.

Using our extremely popular Essensity Organic Colour range, you can colour and even keep the level of blonde in your hair, and give it an amazing shine and glossiness that only comes with healthy hair.    If you want to keep up your full head colour in between visits you can pop in to the salon for a colour gloss mousse.  These are very quickly applied at shampoo, and blow dried, all done in the time it takes for a cut and blow.  Refreshing your colour, and giving it a super glossy finish.  You can even take the product home to refresh yourself after your visit.  Great for when you want a colour boost in between your visits.

Blonde is not just a colour, and if you are not quite ready for the summer to leave your hair, we have the perfect answer.

BLONDME is a colour and care range in our salon that is specifically designed for people with blonde hair.  The colour is caring and can help create amazing variations of blonde, from warm caramel, to ice steel and even lilac (Which Camilla from our Ruthin Salon has a variation of, and it is stunning!).  What could be better?  Well the Salons currently have a 20% off BLONDME Services!  So you can get the colour and the care at an even lesser cost.

TIP # 3

Sharper Cuts!

Go for the chop!  Cut off those wispy sun stressed ends, and make your edges sharper and more defined, or boost your layers to add volume and hair strength.  Taking inspiration from the Catwalks for Autumn with fantastic fringes and thick healthy looking hair.   Teamed with a natural twist on your colour to accent the change in season, brunettes can go a shade deeper, and strawberry blondes can become more vibrant, with blondes steering away from dip dye, and paler shades to become more intentional, you will find that your summer hair can survive a change in style and season, whilst keeping
it looking healthy,and more importantly...
Super Super great!

I look forward to meeting you!
