SUMMER COLOUR TRENDS - Platinum, Split-Dye, Hair Contouring and Candy Hues

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, In : Trends 


With brighter days upon us once again, you're probably thinking of getting some ombré/balayage treatment to brighten up your locks and get you on trend.

If that is the case, stop what you're doing and install Instagram, because you seem to have missed the news somehow - that trend is now on its way out.

Here's what's kicking it off the table...



It all started a couple of months ago when platinum became an overnight must-have after Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto both revealed lightened locks at t...

"They Should Bottle That Stuff and Sell It"

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Friday, April 3, 2015, In : Products 

...and then they did.

I'm sure you've heard it. You've probably said it.

You buy an at-home hair dye, apply it, watch the TV for a bit as it develops, before staining your bath, applying the complimentary after-conditioner for a few minutes and then rinsing. You eagerly dry it off, run your irons over your locks and then stroke your hair in wonder at the silky smooth feeling it's left.


"Why don't they bottle this stuff and sell it?" you wonder.


I'd like to side step for a moment and venture a gue...

Coloured Hair Should Be Allowed In Schools

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Saturday, March 21, 2015, In : News 

Since I began blogging, the topics I've chosen to cover have a tendency to follow my somewhat liberal principles. It's still to do with hair, (this being the very nature of my blog), but I like to explore ideas like avant garde style and grassroots inspiration and if topical issues do arise, suffice to say I'm not afraid to show opinions and, (perhaps on occasion), bias. With that in mind, my blog turns two years old today, and although I do have a couple of pieces of research on the back bur...

Celebs Usher In a New Era

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Monday, March 9, 2015, In : Trends 

In the past week celebrities have decided to literally buck the trends we've all grown accustomed to achieving for the past decade. In short; long hair is out.

As a hairstylist, the number of times I've had a client or model whose hair needed to be coiffed into big, bouncy, shiny waves is practically uncountable. It got to a point in many a stylist's head that this was just accepted as the norm. Kim Kardashian and Cheryl Cole-Tweedy-Fernandez-Versini-Jones-Bloggs [sic] were die-hard reference...

Focused-Ion Beam Technology Could Be the Non-Dye Answer to Permanent Hair Colour

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Friday, August 1, 2014, In : News 

Ever wondered if you could permanently change your hair colour with just the sweep of a flat iron? Well, probably not, but new researched published this week by Prof. Zeyd Leseman et al. at the University of New Mexico suggests that one day you may be able to do just that.

The paper, entitled 'Nano-Patterning of Diffraction Gratings on Human Hair for Cosmetic Purposes', is the result of experimentation with Focused-Ion Beam (FIB) technology to etch the hair surface into a diffraction grating, ...

STYLIST Trend On Trial: Rainbow Hair

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, February 19, 2014, In : Trends 

TREND ON TRIAL


I'm already up to my neck in Fashion Week and awards season, and I already buy every fashion magazine every month, so blogging and reading takes up a lot of my spare time, (not forgetting I also manage a salon full time). And yet, every week without fail, I find myself dashing around Birmingham mid-commute looking for a Stylist distributor, wondering if Evie, Sam and Anita (their beauty department) have explored the world of hair this week. One of the regular beauty features of ...

The Wet-Look Redhead - A Stylist Special

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, September 26, 2013, In : Trends 

This post isn't really about a single topic, but every now and then an issue of Stylist will be very hair-focused and this week's is one of those. There's a fabulous feature on redheads (famous ones, no less) and a Trend On Trial using the wet look seen on Prada's AW13 runway, (look out for the Hair In The Campaigns blog on that later this week).



So I decided to fuse the two and kill a few birds with one stone, by trying out the wet look on my own (unintentionally*) copper locks, then I'll twe...

Hair In The Campaigns: Versace AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, September 19, 2013, In : Trends 

'Hair in the Campaigns' is a featurette I'll be doing in the absence of this season's runway reports. You might not get fully-studied trends but you do get some gorgeous imagery!

We start with Versace. Why? Kate Moss is why. She wasn't the only model in the shoot but her hair looks staggeringly good...




Yes, you're seeing it right. That is a gorgeous auburn-tinged brunette shade in place of the flowing golden waves we saw in her Kérastase campaign earlier in the year. Known mostly for her dishe...

Kim Kardashian Lets Ombré Live On

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, September 4, 2013, In : Celebrity 

Kim Kardashian stepped out last weekend with a new partner - a gorgeous high-contrast blonde ombré.



Ombré, balayage or dip-dye has been on trend - especially with celebrities - for a couple of years now. More and more of you are going into salons and asking for it in varying effects.

This particular look is incredibly executed, because her roots are very naturally dark and the ends very light, but despite the strong difference, the blend between the two is perfect and the hair is in immaculat...

The Return of Punk

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, In : Trends 

Punk is making another noisy comeback to the world of fashion.

The May editions of both Elle and Vogue feature editorials and accompanying retrospectives of the 70s movement and its influence on both fashion and social attitudes.

Punk, like "the new black" and 60s beehives and miniskirts, frequently re-enters the fashion domain every few years before being declared dead again. Underground, it lives on, with many DIY punk bands ...

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, In : Celebrity 

Not two weeks since Jessie J shave her hair off for Comic Relief, she has also bleached it.



Today is the singer's 25th birthday, and she uploaded these pictures along with the caption "it's my birthday and I'll be blonde if I want to".

If you missed Comic Relief, check out the video of the moment she revealed her buzz cut here.

I absolutely love this look on her! What do you think?

More Celebs Join The Bright Hair Brigade

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, March 25, 2013, In : Celebrity 

Rainbow hair hues seem to be an unstoppable force!



Dakota Fanning and Jenna Jameson are the latest to join the throng of celebrities sporting unconventional hair colours this year. They join Kerry Katona, Bella Cruise and a host of others rocking the trend.

Fanning was papped in New York City with freshly dip-dyed pick locks, a look she dabbled with back in January last year. Sheltered against the cold snap in layered casuals and knitwear, the Twilight star clearly enjoyed the look the first t...

Celebrity Colour Craze

Posted by Simon Pinder on Saturday, March 23, 2013, In : Celebrity 

I'm not sure what's happening in 2013 but I like it!




Kerry Katona tweeted this picture yesterday after dying her hair a pastel blue, asking her followers if they liked it, but before anybody could give much of a reply she was bouncing of the walls, saying she felt 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and that she wanted to bounce on a trampoline before peeing her pants.

But Kerry wasn't the only girl feeling a cool hue. On the same day, Isabella Cruise (daughter of Tom and Nicole), tweeted her ...
