Lockdown Hair Transformation

Welcome back to the salon everyone! I was certainly happy to be back when Steven & Laurent Hairdressers opened up again last month. However, I think my roots were just bad as after the first lockdown, if not a little worse, so Ellie had her work cut out!

Of course, as always, I was in good hands, and I couldn’t wait to refresh the cut and colour. Again, I opted for my usual scalp bleach and bespoke toner, but this time, I wanted a few more inches off!

In the picture below, you can see how much my hair had grown out.

After a few hours in the chair and one of the salon’s signature cocktails later (and I can confirm it was delicious!), check out the result.

The stylists have been super busy since the opening in April and recently welcomed a new stylist to the team. Check out the recent haircuts and colours on the Steven & Laurent Hairdressers Facebook page for tons of inspo.

Kevin Murphy Nudes colour range

This month I spotted a new colour range in the salon that I’m really tempted to try on my next appointment. The Nudes range has four multi-tonal shades, and I absolutely love the vibe of the 11.28 colour. I’ll update you next month on whether I was brave enough to try it!

My product of the month

I’m a big fan of Kevin Murphy products and use them on every wash. You can see the products I use to wash and condition my hair here.

However, this month, I thought I’d share one of my favourite finishing products, the Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine spritz.

You might be able to tell from its name this product gives your hair a beautiful shine after application. It’s packed with goodies including vitamin C and E plus bamboo and baobab extracts that nourish from scalp to tip. This product also shares light-reflecting technology that you find in many high-end skincare ranges.

The thing I love most about this finishing spray – it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave an oily residue like others I’ve tried. So if you have fine hair like mine, I’d definitely recommend this spray if you are struggling to find the perfect product.

Saying Goodbye To Lockdown Hair

One of the things I was most looking forward to when lockdown started to ease was getting back into the salon. If like me, your roots were a good few inches long, but you resisted the temptation to get the box dye out – congrats we made it!

The new normal

It’s no surprise that the phones were off the hook trying to get an appointment at Steven & Laurent Hairdressers as soon as they announced the re-opening. Getting my hair done is certainly something I’ve missed during lockdown, and I’m sure many people felt the same way.

After booking my appointment, they went through all the things that were in place and what to expect in the salon. I didn’t have any reservations about going, and once I arrived, as normal, I felt totally at ease. I still haven’t got used to wearing a face-covering though, but it’s the new normal until the situation changes.

If you’re booked in over the next few weeks, you can expect the same fantastic service as always. There are just a few more safety elements in place so that everyone feels comfortable and safe during their appointment. For more details, check out this Facebook post.

Hello refreshed locks

From my previous posts, you’ll know that I have bleach on my regrowth and toner to make it icy white. Of course, with around four months of no touch-ups, you can imagine my roots were pretty noticeable. If you follow my Instagram (@tashaahenson), you’ll see that I made good use of hats during the lockdown period. Plus, I also kept up a ritual of leaving it a few days between washes and using Kevin Murphy products.

My stylist Cameron said my hair was in great condition, and while I usually have a good few inches chopped off - this time, we decided to leave it slightly longer as the condition was fab.

Check out the result below:

With lockdown easing, all the new safety precautions and wearing a face covering can feel quite daunting. However, the team are on-hand to answer any questions you have to help make the process super easy. You can also check out the Steven & Laurent Hairdressers Facebook and Instagram pages, where you’ll find regular updates and information on salon appointments.

Invest in your hair - it’s the crown you never take off.
