The Hair Dress by Balmain

We love our new hair dress collection SO much. For anyone who likes to create longer or bigger hair on a regular basis this is perfect and requires very little skill at all. If you can put a hairband on and flip some hair over the top, you are good to go!

These hair dresses come in their very own bag carrier to keep them tidy and can be washed, straightened and treated as your own hair! A huge range of hair colour and variation available.

£94 but available at 10% off throughout December ready for those Christmas and New Year parties.
Call 01245 257137 for more information.

The 5 minute hair piece demonstration.

We have these amazing new hairpieces in store from our B Loved collection at Balmain.
 We know so many people are often shy about using hairpieces because of how difficult you feel it may be to achieve the look, so here is a quick demonstration by Zoe of how easy it is to clip it in and style yourself in only a couple of minutes!


 So the first step is to separate the back of your hair from the front. This is best done with a comb.

 Then simply clip the hair piece over the back section of hair.

 Then style the rest of your hair in place as desired.

 With this hair piece I am showing you a small subtle volume suitable for everyday as below.

 And a slightly larger effect for that 'big hair 'look. Just style some of your front section of hair over the hairpiece, backcombing if necessary.

 Gorgeous in minutes!

Prices range from 39.95 and have so many shades that can blend in with your natural hair. For a five minute tutorial, just ask in the Salon or call us for more information.

And did we mention the smell? It's divine!
