With spring around the corner, we’ve seen a lot of interest in shorter hairstyles. Clients who are considering going ‘shorter’ often ask us whether they will achieve a look which is faster and easier to style in the mornings. So here are our team’s hair care tips to ensure your new short hair style remains looking fabulous, and with minimal fuss.
1 - You want a style which is easy to work with.
The more you have to manipulate it each morning, the more effort and time it will take.
2. Be gentle with your brush
Short hair doesn’t need as much brushing as long hair, so be gentle on it. If you do over brush, you’ll be adding extra stress to the hair follicles and you may find that your hair becomes greasier or brittle sooner. As an alternative, try using your fingers instead of a brush.
3. Turn down the heat
Short hair can be easily damaged by heated styling appliances like hairdryers, straighteners and curling tongs. As well as potentially damaging the hair shaft, they can affect how your hairstyle then holds onto any colour.
If you want use styling appliances, use heat protection sprays and give your hair a regular conditioning treatment on a regular basis. We recommend the Matrix or Milk Shake range.
4. Book in for regular trims
To make sure your hair remains healthy and gorgeous in your new style, keep it regularly trimmed. Bear in mind that hair tends to grow about 1cm per month. With short hair styles, choose a stylist who is a master in precision cutting. You really can’t afford for them to make any mistakes! Skill and experience are paramount here.
