NEW Bumble and Bumble Blow Dry Balms

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, In : Products 

Bumble and bumble are extending their blow dry portfolio with two new products that continue from their Straight Blow Dry product: All-Style and Repair balms.



Straight Blow Dry is something of a misleading name. It works alongside it's own Straight Shampoo and Conditioner, but all three are more about smoothing than straightening - the reason they carry the 'straight' title is because they make the job ten times easier for those who do straighten their curly, kinky or frizz-prone hair.

How To Revive a Tangled Hairpiece

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, August 28, 2013,

A few days ago a lovely lady Gemma came to me to get her hair put up for a black tie event. Now it's no secret that I love put-ups so I assured her she was in good hands. Gemma has a LOT of her own hair but brought in a clip-on hairpiece for an extra-polished finish, and these were the results:


However, a couple of days later Gemma revisited the salon while I was away because her hairpiece had become a bit tangled and frizzy and left it for me to revive, which I was more than happy to do. Hair...

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, In : Red Carpet 

Stars lined up a good variety of looks on the red carpet at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. Keep reading for the wearable, the wacky and the totally weird in my top 10 hair moments...


10. Holland Roden's super-simple perfection


I love this timeless look and it's so well-executed. Tucking the hair from the front hairline behind he ear and the rest down is extremely now. A great way to make what's seemingly nothing into a red carpet something.

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 Monday, March 25, 2013, In : Trends 

There's two things to consider when doing your hair to work with the season's fashion. One, what are designers telling you to wear? And two, what are the fashion week session stylists telling you to do with your hair? And make no mistake, following fashion and hair trends that fall in the same season will NOT be a guaranteed recipe for success. Make that your mantra.

Wire-wool Hair Sparks Racism Claims

Posted by Simon Pinder on Friday, March 22, 2013, In : News 

At Sao Paulo Fashion Week, a runway look has lit a fire beneath Facebook and Twitter users who have branded it 'racist and embarrassing'.



The look, created by designer Ronaldo Fraga for his SS13 collection, utilised wire wool to portray a faux-Afro effect. However, Brazilian social media users deemed it offensive and in poor taste in a country that has long suffered with racial imbalances.

One user who commented on an online news article recalled his past of his hair being compared to wire wool...
