Take four lovely ladies, add a sprinkle of Fergal, our Wella Educator and watch the magic happen.
Let me introduce you to our models,
Elaine, has naturally grey textured hair, she loves bright colours and has a big event coming up. She wants a bleach-up but is open to suggestions. She is open-minded about the end result.
Mikaela, has grown out blonde highlights and wants to try blonde balayage. She loves the idea of a low maintenance colour that doesn't need to be done every 6 weeks.
Jenne, has home-bleached rooty hair and wants super bright hair, she loves orange and yellow.
Kirsty, is open to suggestions, she likes the natural depth of her hair, she definitely doesn't want to go darker but isn't sure how light she wants to go. She always goes for blonde highlights but they can often go warm, she wants cool ashy tones of blonde.
Let's get to work..
Senior Stylist Louise works on Elaine and lightens her hair with a full scalp bleach and WellaPlex, she develops the bleach for an hour without heat. Our rule is to use the lowest strength peroxide and develop it slowly, this protects the scalp and maintains the integrity of the hair. Above all else, condition is the only factor to consider when deciding how light you can go.
Fergal then suggested a light Mauve toner from using Wella Illumina. We love Illumina, click here to hear International Colour Artist Josh Wood talk about why Illumina is special.
A full bleach-up* £50 + Toner £15 + WellaPlex £10 = £75
*price varies and depends on how long your hair is, we advise a consultation to get a quote.
Salon Director Eloise worked on Mikaela's hair, Fergal showed Eloise a really quick and gorgeous technique for a really natural summery balayage, getting quicker with our balayage will be great for you as a guest of the salon as it will reduce the cost. This technique wouldn't be suitable for everyone but would work really well on hair that is already quite blonde on the ends or a natural blonde.
Balayage* £65 + WellaPlex £10 = £75
*Price varies and depends on hair length and density. To get a quote book in for a free consultation. Book Online or Download our app from the app store.
Jenne had the top section of her hair scalp bleached by our senior stylist Jade, this was lifted "low and slow" like with Elaine's bleach we use a very low strength peroxide and lots of time to give a super clean blonde with to minimise the damage to the scalp and hair. Then we custom mixed a beautiful soft coral colour for the back and a pure yellow for the front.
Bleach Roots £38 + Colour Fresh Create* £20 = £58
*Colour Fresh Create prices vary and depend entirely on how much colour you want and how long your hair is, book your free consultation to get a quote.
Our Senior stylist Freya worked on Kirsty, they decided with the guidance of Fergal to use Illumina colour to lift some lovely cool blonde baby lights all around the front hairline. Then they very slightly lifted Kirsty's natural root two shades to keep her lovely and dark with extreme shine but also to give her the lightness she wants.
Illumina Foils £40 +Illumina Root Stretch £48 + WellaPlex £10 = £98*
