AW15 Hair Trends
It’s time to think ahead and turn our attention to the Autumn/Winter hair trends and start thinking makeover time! Vogue’s review has Gold Class written all over it with a “move towards a more luxurious, expensive look.”
Healthy well-kept hair is the order of the day and this fits perfectly with our Healthy Hair Days philosophy to keep your mane lustrous and strong. Bouncy blowdries, think Kate Middleton, are in!
Colour wise we always tend to move down the spectrum away from summer blondes and into the warm chocolate hue brunettes. But before you head straight there maybe opt for the on point Bronde look of the likes of Cara Delevingne and Blake Lively. It’s in between blonde and brown – flick through these celeb blondes. If you fancy something a little different red heads are also popular – a rusted red shade is perfect.
Now how to Style your tresses? Don’t be afraid to show off your healthy locks and bouncy blowdry with a few hair swooshes, but if you after a more casual look maybe opt for the ‘hun’ it’s a half bun. For your night out and red carpet looks, sweep your tresses to the side and either pin in place or create a low side pony. You can then have fun with accessories and different takes on your pony. More accessorized updo’s were seen on the catwalks with Oscar de la Renta jewelled topknots and Chanel ribboned-french twists.
Our Gold Class salons are taking bookings from September, so give them a bell to book your consultation now and get your new look sorted ahead of the change of season.
TESTING THE LATEST MIRACLE HAIR PRODUCT: Olaplex our Verdict
There’s much hype about a new product on the market called Olaplex and here at Gold Class we have heard amazing things about it. So when new devotee Karis from Stooshe called in at Inanch London for her new set of Gold Class hair extensions; the team used Olaplex on her own hair before the application.
If you don’t know about this miracle new product, professional stylists mix it in with the colour before application and it helps maintain the integrity of the hair during the colouring process to give improved results. Perfect for those who are dark and want to go light like our Karis, as the molecules speed up the bleaching process and actively repair the hair. The real benefit is that after lightening the hair is strong and healthy. This is music to our ears and sites nicely with our Healthy Hair Days philosophy.
It can be used as a stand alone treatment too for those of us who want to improve your hair condition and even claims to repair your hair. Read this recent article in Cosmo with for more info and a great example of how the hair is repaired.
Back to our girl Karis. Gold Class’ senior extensionist at Inanch London, Roberto, used Olaplex with her colour to help lift and lighten her own hair a few shades. Then adding 300 strands of honey blonde as an ombre created a dramatic new look for Karis who is over the moon with her new look – and just in time for filming Stooshe’s latest music video tweeting: “Our @GoldClassHair made it easy to do versatile looks today on set thank you @InanchLondon @Robert_Ext K x”
The team at Inanch have been using Olaplex for several months now and report amazing results and over-the-moon clients. See more great examples over on our Instagram feed. We can also report there is no issue with using Olaplex with Gold Class extensions.
