How to Combat Frizzy Hair


Although frizz is usually caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, humid weather conditions can also play a part. During the day, your hair loses moisture and by midday, your locks can be looking like a hot frizzy mess! Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to combat frizzy hair. Here are some of the tips your hairdresser will advise.

Choose a High Glycerine, Sulphate Free Shampoo


Shampoo that is packed with glycerine will help to protect your hair shafts by moisturising them fully. Glycerine also creates a protective coating on your hair, preventing it from breaking. When looking at bottles of shampoo, take a look at the ingredients. The ones that are highest on the list, are the ones that are included in higher quantities. Choose the hair products after discussing it with Hairdresser Manchester.

Don’t Skip the Conditioner


Conditioner is a vital part of the wash and shouldn’t be neglected. Again, look for a high glycerine conditioner as this will help to lock moisture into your hair. Avoid going for 2-in-1 products as these very rarely provide everything your hair needs. Ask your Hair stylist Manchester which brands they recommend if you are struggling.

Let Your Hair Air Dry


Using hot tools on your hair like hairdryers and straightening irons is the worst thing for frizzy hair. Instead, let your hair air dry, and ensure you use a protectant spray before using any other heat-based tools. If you need to dry your hair quickly, you should at least towel dry it as much as possible before using a hairdryer.

Brush Your Hair Regularly


Another top tip that Hair salon Manchester City Centre recommend is brushing your hair regularly. When you brush your hair, the oils in your scalp will move through your hair, ensuring it retains its moisture. You can buy a small travel brush and keep it in your handbag if you need to. It’ll be a lifesaver on really humid days!

Carry Hair Serum Everywhere


One final tip is to carry hair serum everywhere. If you’ve ever been caught out in the rain, you’ll know how poufy your hair can become once it starts to dry. Hair serum can be applied while your hair is still wet and will prevent any poufiness from happening. If you can’t carry hair serum everywhere with you, at least carry a hair band and some bobby pins so that you can tie your hair in a bun until you can sort it out.

If you regularly have problems with frizzy hair, make an appointment to speak to one of our hairdressers. We can provide even more advice in person – and help you with your frizz night


Top 5 Men’s Hairstyle Trends For 2018


We’ve had an interesting year in the world of male hair! In 2017, many men pursued diversity from their peers and, as a result, ended up looking exactly the same as their best mates! Every hairdresser and Hair stylist Manchester city Centre in the country tied a top knot at some point, or attempted to imitate the gentlemanly shave-on-the-sides cut, adorned by the actors of Peaky Blinders.

The much looked up to prized fighter Conor McGregor popularised the side parting and for some odd reason, perhaps down to an appreciation of the TV series Geordie Shore, young men began to request hairstyles emulating troll dolls and midget gems. Strange yet quirky!

It’s hard to guess where men will take their hair in 2018. One thing is for sure, if it’s anything like last year, we’re in for both a treat and a right laugh!

The Man Bun 2.0


Get ready 2018, because the man bun isn’t going anywhere! Men of all ages are growing their hair to new lengths, some for the first time in their lives, and they don’t know what to do with it. Enter, the man bun! An easy way to look like you care about the food you eat and the planet you live on – but most of all and most importantly, the reflection in the mirror. Visit Hairdresser Manchester for more!

The Return of Emo

Just not as you know it. Late 2017 brought ‘Soundcloud rappers’ and their Emo-Rap sound and style to the mainstream. For anyone over the age of 23, it’s an emerging sub-genre of Hip-Hop with angsty lyrics often with an indignant view on society. 2018 will undoubtedly see younger impressionable men copy the look. Think one or more primary colours dyed into short, long and layered braids or dreaded hair. Ask Hairdresser Manchester City Centre more about Emo!

The Pretty Boy


This layered cut isn’t quite shoulder length Jim Morrison but it’s long enough for you to run your hands through. The hairstyle is a good balance between rough rebel and organised gent, with moderate care and attention required. Picture Prince Charming from Shrek. All in all, it’s a bob so perfect you’d consider taking him home to meet Mum and Dad!

The Buzz Cut


Arguably a response to the man bun craze, the buzz cut is a classic style which helps define attractive features such as angular cheek bones and oval face shapes. Seen everywhere from the catwalks of London Fashion Week to the inner-city sets of Grime music videos. Fashion designers such as Gosha Rubchinskiy have popularised the style as the signature cut for their models, whilst many women have also opted for the buzz cut in favour of a freer lifestyle.

The Smartly Tapered


In 2018 more men than ever will have tapered cuts, with the hairstyle on top varying depending on length and the type of hair. More conservative men will likely ask for the top to be short and neatly trimmed. Whilst students and partygoers are expected to embrace a longer, messier style with added texture; which showcases the natural body of their hair. Please lads, just promise us you’ll apply some wax if you’re heading for an interview! You can discuss more with Hair stylist Manchester!

We hope this helps you in your search for a new-you in 2018. If it hasn’t, pop into the salon and we’ll be sure to help guide you to a more handsome style. The best way to start the year right!






Top Hairstyle Tips for the Party Season


The holidays are almost here, and we are only a few weeks away from the party season. Christmas parties with family, end of year functions at the office and don’t forget New Year’s Eve is just around the corner! So – onto the most important question of the season – what are you doing with your hair this year?

As a leading hairdresser in Manchester & Hairdresser Manchester we have put together some useful hairstyle tips for this party season. Below you’ll see some ideas you can use to ensure your hair looks fabulous, even when you are exhausted from rushing from one function to another!

Visit Your Hairdresser


We all know our hair looks and feels healthier and better after you have been to the hairdresser. Start the party season with a visit to your hairdresser or Hairdresser Northern Quarter for a trim, colour and style, depending on your needs. Starting off the season with great hair will make it easier to manage when you have limited time to get ready and head off to a party.

Try a Low Bun


If you’re heading off to a cocktail party or an elegant dinner for the party season, then consider a low bun to add that sophisticated and elegant finish to your design for the evening. A low bun is easy to do, and you can pull it slightly to one side, allowing your hair around your face to fall loose. This creates a spectacular hairstyle that you can wear with confidence and with any old dress!

Add a Few Curls


We are seeing a high demand for curls this year here in Manchester. You can get away with soft curls to add some volume to your hair and add that glamorous finish you are looking to achieve. Curls are so easy to do. All you need is some mousse, a barrel brush and a hair-dryer. Add the mousse to your hair and then curl your ends around the brush holding the brush upright and dry; when you release the brush the curls should fall on your shoulders. Or visit Hair stylist Manchester for it!

High Ponytails


If you’re off to an afternoon party then pulling your hair into a high ponytail keeps it off your neck and out of your face, while being able to be worn with all types of wardrobes for all functions. What’s great about the high ponytail is if you are going from a relaxed lunch to a formal function, you can simply nip into the bathroom and twirl your hair around itself to create a top knot. This gives you that elegant evening look in a jiffy!
