    Style advice

    I didn’t cut it because she was never 100% certain, so I didn’t want her to regret it if she wasn’t ready. But now she is definitely sure that she wants it short. Her hair definitely is not like the short bob you suggested, it is far too thin for it to look like that. Thank you I will look at...

    Style advice

    Hi all, I have a client who currently has a bob, the last couple of times I’ve done her hair she’s said she thinks she wants it short, I never cut it short, I kept it the same. Now she has said at her next appointment it’s definitely being cut off and brightened up. Her hair is thin and fine...

    Pre pig Goldwell help

    Thanks all [emoji4] She's had a 6 before to break it up and she liked it so I shouldn't have a problem with the depth of colour, I just won't do too many. Ive never used goldwell lolites, but I'll take a look for the future, thanks :) I chose 6n@gb because it's something I already have so saves...

    I got a dyson for Christmas and I really can't rate it at all. I have a parlux and its sooo much better. My parlux is hotter and feels a lot more powerful and i can't get use to the position of the buttons on the dyson. I'll definitely be returning it. Anyone else got one?

    Quick and simple prepig options?

    Colour mousse is great for quickness but if it's going over hair that is bleached so light and you want to achieve a 6 or darker then don't expect it to last, it will fade real quick!

    Patchy bleach highlights

    Well if it's lifted to 9 and 10 then I'll need to choose something with violet. But how do I know whether to use a 10. Or 9. ? If i use a 10. then it won't tone anything that's not lifted to a 10, if I choose a 9. will that even it out? The hair is definitely patchy, you can see from previous...

    Patchy bleach highlights

    Hi all, I have a new client who has bleach foil highlights. I highlighted her hair today and really noticed how uneven her colour is. She says she's only ever had bleach but would also like a toner - she says her hair goes brassy the last couple of weeks before it needs doing. She is a base 7...

    Theory of developers regarding low and slow

    I have tried to explain low and slow to the women I work with, they tell me why would I want to waste time using bleach & 6% when I can use 12% and will get results quicker - bleach high lights still turn out a nice colour with 12% - if we have a base 5 client then my boss will even use 18%...

    Hair BBC3

    I thought the program was just about people who do their every day jobs but just have a passion for doing hair - like a hobby they enjoy. They're not suppose to be great hair cutters or produce amazing colour. They experiment with family and friends hair cause they just like to have a go and...
