Feeling a little Flamboyage this month?

We had a big success with our MacMillan Coffee Morning last Friday. We raised over £100 which is fantastic!


Thank you to everyone who popped in and contributed to the morning, it was lovely to see so many of you.

The little refresh we had in the salon last week went smoothly – minus a little mishap with a diagram of some Swedish furniture! Have a look at the pics below to see how we’ve smartened the place up a little, we’re very chuffed!

New patch tests needed for our new Davines colour range

A quick notice to our fabulous colour clients: when you book your next colour appointment you will need to have a new patch test. We’ve brought in our beautiful range of Davines colours so be sure to have a patch test at least 24hrs before your appointment.

Bring a little Flamboyage to your colour!

Ooh-la-la! Flamboyage is a colour technique that is unique to Davines, and now that we’re an official Davines salon we’re able to use it!

Flamboyage is a new alternative to traditional highlights. The process incorporates elements of both balayage and ombré techniques to give the hair more depth and a natural-yet-polished result.

Developed in conjunction with Angelo Seminara, twice British Hairdresser of the Year, “Flamboyage” makes use of adhesive transparent “meches” rather than foils. The hair sticks to the meche in random patterns before the colour is applied, producing a wonderfully natural colour effect, with no regrowth. Want to give it a try? Book your appointment with us now.

The colours of the season

Autumn is definitely upon us and the colours of this season are Rose Gold, Metallics, Midnight Ink, Silver Steel and Luminous Lilac. Rising with the popularity of rose gold jewellery, the beautiful colour Rose Gold has become an immensely popular trend with hair on the high street.

It’s such a versatile colour which can be worn by itself or with brunette or blonde hair with highlights or lowlights. We absolutely love it and have been wearing it ourselves! With so many ways to wear and style it, we believe it’s a trend that’s going to stick around.

Other popular colours this season are Metallics, Midnight Ink, Silver Steel and Luminous Lilac. Metallics have been a big trend lately and we can only see them getting more popular as they add a beautiful shine to coloured hair.

Want to discuss changing your hair colour for the new season? Pop on by and discuss it with us – or just go straight ahead and book yourself an appointment.

BIGGER BOOBS is back – and it’s definitely bigger!

On 28th October we’re back in action with our biggest BooBs event yet!

Working closely with our favourite local Charity BooB’s, we’re hosting another fundraising night on 28th October from 7pm til late at Shaftesbury Youth Club. This year is already looking much bigger as we have been donated a marquee! The Kalypsos team are doing 50’s styled hair and make-up for you to then have a mini photo-shoot at our stand.

Last year we raised over £3,015 and all money went to local charities including Stars Breast Cancer Unit, Weldmar Hospice, Inflammatory Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness. This year we plan to beat that amount! We hope we’ll see you there – let us know you’re coming by RSVPing to the Facebook event here.

A little bit about BooBs

BooBs is about raising awareness and educating ladies (and men) how to check their breasts. Their ethos is that if symptoms can be caught early enough it could save a life.

BooBs help local people who have had a diagnosis with the cost of treatment, support, mastectomy bras and wigs. Also if the worst possible news is received BooBs are here to help families in some way to create an everlasting memory.

Boobs can put ladies with a diagnosis in touch with others locally who have fought or are fighting the battle to provide emotional support.

Although Boobs is primarily aimed at Breast cancer awareness it is not exclusive to this cancer and every opportunity will be taken to enhance the general public’s knowledge of early signs of other cancers.
