Created to help the hairdressing industry recoup and generate income ahead of potential re-opening on 12th April 2021, the new ‘Support Your Local Salon Scheme’ enables salons nationwide to partner with Luxurious Look and benefit from its commission and buyback scheme, whilst joining a network of like-minded peers from the hairdressing community.
SimplyHair, leading salon supplies wholesaler, launches a new range of hairdressing tools and accessories designed to make salons picture perfect.
The new collection offers everyday salon essentials, including brushes, tint bowls and foils, in a variety of colours and designs. It gives salon owners and mobile stylists the opportunity to match their styling tools to their salon interior design, enhancing client experience and strengthening their brand.
A hairdresser from the North East has launched the UK’s first social platform dedicated to stylists and salons: Stylebook Directory. This site allows professionals at all stages of their career to showcase their work and connect with ideal clients in their local area. Best of all, for a limited time, it’s free for hairdressers and salons to join.
For too long, women have felt that beyond a certain age, they are too old for long hair and decide to go short. Whether it is due to societal pressure, with long-haired older women portrayed as “witches”, or to balance natural thinning that can come with age, this is often a difficult decision. It can feel like part of our femininity and youth has been stripped away but this needn’t be the case.
The hair and beauty sector involves workplaces, salons and activities that bring people in very close proximity to one another, often in the head or face area (referred to as the ‘highest risk zone’ in the Government’s guidance). These activities present the most difficult challenges when it comes to minimising the spread of COVID-19 and operating safely. The sometimes unpredictable nature of clients’ behaviour adds to the challenge.
Summertime is more than just time for friends, family, and the beach. If you love your hair and you’re never shy of experimenting, summer is the time to get funky and fresh. Not by burning through your cash to get some Gucci belt – surely no harm in that, but rather by experimenting with natural hairstyles.
