Olaplex!!! Have you had yours??

The New wonder product that has hit our industry to help you have FABULOUS hair again!!

My salon in the UK started with Olaplex and I was hearing so many good things about this product I was intrigued and excited to go back to work with my team and see what this product was and is all about!

It never disappointed me this product can be used within colour so the colour doesn’t damage or as a stand alone treatment. When using¬†colour in your hair this product gives the Tint like a silk lining so no damage is caused to the hair! Even with bleach! What is actually does is…. The products repairs broken hair bonds, these of course are broken down by chemical and heat damage.. Repairing your bonds improves the condition and the texture of your hair!!! Many people ask what’s the difference between a conditioning treatment and Olaplex well a conditioning treatment works on the surface of the hair and doesn’t last where as Olaplex works from inside the hair and repairs the hairs damage!

So Sold and I brought it out to IBIZA!! Hair can be even more damaged here due to of course the sun, pool sea and the water isn’t the best! So I introduced it to the people of Ibiza….

I recently did a stand alone treatment of my gorgeous Ibiza resident client Heather as you can see from the results how amazing does her hair look! This is what heather said…’ Colour is epic and hair feels tonns thicker and super smooth’ That will do for me ūüôā

Everyone should try this product its especially good for your hair¬†after a baby , which I have personally found.¬†I am hearing so much good feedback from clients here and in the UK … One client even said her hair never grows past a certain length but with this product is has started growing and exceeding her expectations¬†… So is this the holy grail of hair!!!

Book yours where ever that may be as remember ladies there is only one of you & Your worth it!

A beautiful bride in a custom made dress!

Rebecca got married in the beautiful Cas Mila a favourite of mine as that was of course my wedding too!

I first met Becki as she let me call her the week before her wedding for her bridal hair trial, she is a gorgeous girl inside and out¬†and has the most fabulous long hair , perfect to work with. Me and Becki sat and discussed her look she was wanting or her big day and what she was wearing in her hair. She also showed me her dress I just said WOW. Becki works for Kevin Jon who is a ladies clothes designer am sure you have heard of¬†him, if ¬†not check¬†it out.. his dresses are beautiful and so feminine. Him and Becki and their team had designed and made her wedding dress so it was unique for her. As you can see on the pictures coming it really was breathtaking and suited Becki’s slim figure.The hair trial went well and the bride was happy with her hair. She was going to Ibiza rocks that night to swish it about.

Arriving on the¬†wedding day, what a gorgeous summers Ibiza¬†day it was. Arriving the bride seemed content and excited and was a pleasure working for. The look¬†for the brides hair¬†was a soft romantic curl, we pre pin-curled the hair and left it to set as¬†Becki’s¬†had her make up done by the fabulous Hannah. I¬†work a lot with Hannah¬†she is very¬†talented make up artist and in the winter time works in Manchester in Bobby Brown so she is¬†always keeping her skills up to date.¬†When I took¬†her hair out of the¬†pins unravelling the curls and individualising them all, ¬†I then¬†dressed it out¬†giving Becki some height above her crown¬†for her veil to sit underneath. Bit of back combing ladies is a must!

Once the veil was fitted me and Hannah left for the bride to get ready in peace. ¬†Becki sent me the pictures just recently and they took my breath away. Which were took by Ana Lui Studio by Iva.¬†She just looked stunning like I knew she would her hubby scrubs up well too ūüôā

All the best to you both for the future and maybe see you again in Ibiza!

The Salon & One of my Gorgeous Summer brides!

Bridal season is definitely here and so are the Hot temperatures. The last Blog I wrote I was returning to the UK for my last visit at my salon along with two baby showers and my gorgeous Nephews christening ūüôā My last visit to salon was a very busy one I was fully booked with all my long standing clients plus lots of little bits to do, but I really enjoyed it , I am so lucky with clientele and the staff at The Salon each of them with their own personalities and characters make the salon what it is.

Back to the island it was all about weddings and of course the HEAT! I did love being cosy in UK snuggling into a duvet in bed and being able to walk round the shops without sweating, granted though I was still wet with the rain! Good old blighty! Here in Ibiza when I returned it seemed to be even hotter than before with my father in law here telling me its defiantly the hottest summer we have had in the past few years so it’s not just me and my pregnancy sweats!! Not that I am moaning honest am still smiling!

Each year I am here I work at new venues across the island this year I had the pleasure of working on Katie’s wedding in the stunning¬† Can Gall and what wedding venue that is!¬†A typical Ibizan country house which is over 200 years old in the north of the island. As you can see from the pictures below Katie was a stunning bride and her bridal party and so lovely to work for, the morning getting ready was filled with lots of smiles and laughter and you could feel the excitement in the air! Most organised mornings run smoother with¬†room for all the bridal party to have their hair and make up done and this venue certainly had this.

Ibiza really is the place to get married and seems to be getting more poplular each year I have been talking to brides for 2016 which will soon be here! I can definitely see why people choose to marry here I did! ha.

I only have a few more weddings now this season as I go on maternity leave end of August but the brides are beautiful so looking forward to working on them!

Summer is here with beautiful brides, a heat wave & a baby!

Well what can I say season has definitely begun! I have been busy making brides look fabulous! Wedding season has for sure began and I have met some lovely beautiful ladies and been part of their special days! All the brides have been blessed with gorgeous sunshine and stunning sun sets. I just love the way each bride brings her personality to her own wedding . Every dress is just stunning this it’s why it is so hard deciding on your dress as there are ¬†so many beautiful ones out there! And when each bride gets dressed into her dress the smile is just beaming as that feeling you feel is just over whelming I still remember it and always will! Brides are going for all different looks this year too with their hair which is just fabulous but I would say the main look is very romantic and boho! Which I love!

Here is my Bride Ciara getting ready and what a ¬†Irish beauty she was… Here I worked with Hannah at Eyeibiza.co.uk..

We are¬†having a sudden heat wave hitting Ibiza and all over Spain the last few days and I can say it is literally quite boiling!!! The wind is coming from the Sahara¬†desert and is also warm! The beaches are¬†full of people under parasols… The sea also is full! But Ibiza is ¬†looking so amazing right now and is buzzing.

I havent said as yet on my blog but I have a little Tulip growing I am 7 months pregnant and this heat is very testing! Luckily there are many pools around which I occasionally want to just dive in fully clothed ( very Bridget Jones sort of thing) but think people may think I am a but strange or mental so I wait till I get home for a nice cool shower or a swim in our communal pool! ;0 I am having the baby here in Ibiza and can say all my treatment here so far has been fantastic the hospital Can Misses is brand new after a renovation the last few years. The language for me can be quite difficult but luckily again my husband speaks the language so he is my translator coming too all my appointments with me bless him! So am having a little Ibiza baby!

I have more brides this week and I am looking forward to meeting them and have been chatting to brides for 2016! I also have my last trip in the UK 8th July for my last pre booked¬†worked till Christmas in my salon in UK, which I am looking forward too to see all my loyal clients who have been with me since opening my salon 8 years ago. Then I have to stay put in case baby tulip arrives early… but not a bad place to be is it in Ibiza! The place i now call home!

Blow Drying tips

blond-blow-drying-hair-590x372

Now we all want that salon look without having to go to The Salon, this often isn’t possibly and as a salon owner myself I am some what happy about this or I would havent a job! But here are a few tips and tricks on how to blow dry your hair the salon way!

Your first step for blow drying your hair should be when you have washed your hair leave it to air dry for about 15 minutes before adding heat to your hair this gives your hair time to self dry a little so it wont need as long to blow dry, also prep the hair with your products. Everyone should be using a leave in conditioning product if not or also a product for your desired look or shape.

Your Hairdryer is very important to this process of course and as hairdressers we spend alot on our equipment also the correct tools… Here is what you need….

  • Nozzle: Don‚Äôt discard this. It is key to a smooth look and keeps hair from getting too close to the heat.
  • Hairdryers : To be 1,800 watts and multiple heat and air settings
  • Round brush: Straighten strands, make ends flip, or create waves with this tool. Time-saving tip: The bigger the surface area of a brush, the faster the drying time.
  • New Brushes: When styling your hair the CORRECT brush is a must! Us ladies should be investing in good brushes, your brushes should also be clean of hair and product so they can grip onto the hair correctly! So if you have any brushes that you wouldn’t show off in public bin them today and go SHOPPING!!
  • Hair clip’s: It keeps layers separate and easy to manage and prevents damage caused by over drying sections.

Each section you take when blow drying your hair should be the width of the brush you are using, this controls the blow dry and also dries each strand of hair evenly. We should start from the nape of the neck when blow drying round to the sides then up to the crown and forward to the fringe area. I recommended you dry your fringe first so it doest have a part stuck in it from drying naturally.

Always point the dryer’s nozzle downwards to help smooth hair and create shine. Dry from roots to mid lengths to ends keeping the hairdryer at a distance from your brush , with your brush not touching it!

To curl ends, roll them under with a round brush, blast with heat, and set with cold air. For a straight finish, pull the brush through while drying ends with warm air; set with cold air.

Practice makes perfect and also visit a Salon, salons are always putting on blow dry offers at the moment too so go and teat yourself!

Remember to watch your stylist while in your salon too to pick up tips and tricks!!! This is a lesson in itself!

Winter Hair tips

So winter is arriving here in Ibiza too granted it is a few degrees higher than in good old blighty but still less daylight more hours of darkness, it’s the time of year our bodies are changing to keep us warm rather than cooler, we have our heating on in our homes so now is as good as time as any than to take that extra care of our hair!

page-3-title

What we don’t realise is our indoor heating can be just as damaging as blow drying our hair regularly. So here is a few top tips to keep our hair in tip-top condition!

TIP 1. Don’t leave the house with wet hair as not only will you catch the death of cold like our mothers have always told us, but your hair can freeze and break easily!

TIP 2. Avoid taking hot showers , use warm to luke warm water this will not dry your hair out and keep moisture in your hair. You will also notice by doing this your hair will be smoother and glossier!

TIP 3. When going outside cover up your hair with a cool hat or scarf this will protect your hair from the elements!

TIP 4. Condition, condition, condition! Dry heat and cold weather sap hair of moisture. Because dry hair breaks easily, the most important thing you can do during the cold months use a more intensive daily conditioner and a once a week treatment.

TIP 5 . Wear¬†your hair in some funky updo hairstyles during winter. Not only will this limit your hair’s exposure to the elements and dry air, they are beautiful and wonderfully festive!

TIP 6. A little tip if you live here in IBIZA the water here isn’t the cleanest or purest especially worse in some areas than others. Every now and again give your hair a rinse in bottled water you will notice the different instantly!

TIP 7. Now our sleep in called beauty sleep for a reason to look after our hair while sleeping, sleep on a silk pillow case! This will reduce bed head and split ends!

TIP 8. Eat a well-balanced diet, I have got into juicing this year and I cant believe the difference in my skin , hair and nails! It a perfect way of getting all your vitamins in one glass!

TIP 9. Of course drink lots of water we forget how good this is for us in general!

TIP 10. Now this should go without saying get your hair trimmed every 6 Р10 weeks. Hair can self cut itself if not trimmed regular! Go on Book now with your stylist get your hair ready for Christmas! Tis the season to be FABULOUS!

Go on try a few of these tips if not all of them!

Bridal Hair

Ibiza Photography - Zoe & Lee (30)3a

 

On your wedding day you want to look and feel your best. Of course prior to any brides big day including myself the wedding dress diet begins, looking after ourselves much better, to have our skin hair & nails looking fresh, shiny & strong. I also recommend to brides to have their hair trimmed regular every 6-8 week, up to their big day as it will keep your hair in its best condition!

But of course the question is; How are you going to wear your hair? you can imagine being a hairdresser myself this is the question everyone is asking me. When I trained as a hairdresser all those years ago ,I found that I had such passion for up dos and especially bridal hair. I worked on my first bride at 18 and I just loved it being part of brides special day! With Bridal hair it is always quite classic but of course season hair trends & fashion venture into the trends of bridal hair! The best thing I believe that has helped brides have any style they would like, is hair pieces and hair extensions as I say ‘if you haven’t got it put some hair in’. I am loving all the vintage trends with bridal hair at the moment, the soft vintage waves, pin curls, plaits, Kipper plaits and lots of soft curls!

I believe a trial is very important to any bride as it gives the bride a chance to visual see their ideas. It always good to find ideas of what you like and sometimes what you don’t like to show to your hair stylist. This is also a good opportunity for you to build a relationship with your hair stylist for the day . For your trial it is ideal for you to take with you any hair ornament or accessorizes you are wearing in your hair and also your veil. This gives you chance to see how you will look and decide on the position you would like to wear your veil if you are wearing one that is.. . Another tip I give to my brides is to book your trial or an appointment with your hairdresser just before your wedding dress fitting then you can see how your hair works with your dress!! A good excuse for another trial or just getting your hair done!

A tip on choosing the right style for your wedding day!! What style is your dress, like any other big night out, we wear our hair to suit our outfit , so think your hair is showcasing you and your dress. Also where are you getting married, a church, a hotel, a stunning beach these all can help you make the decision on how to wear your hair. If you want your wedding to have a complete theme!

The morning of your wedding should be so enjoyable with your bridesmaids around you, having your hair & make up done and often sipping a nice glass of champagne! of course! After being part of many brides mornings I am just so excited to be the bride on my wedding morning!

Here are a few of my most recent brides from UK & Ibiza.

From soft stunning bridal waves to a Boho beautiful beach bride to a bridal shoot I did in Ibiza with a soft Glamourous vintage look.
