Famous for a day..

On Thursday we had our team mentor Jamie come into the salon with his posse. His posse being three lovely people who donned a camera, microphone and other equipment. When we were told about them coming into film us, we were also given a few questions that would be asked. So I made sure I thought of a few answers before hand incase being in front of a camera freaked me out. So me and Nicole went through our answers first thing and decided we sounded so cheesy! I was under the impression we were being interviewed whilst with a client because I was fully booked all day. All I could think about was the cheese. I like being daft, but not in front of clients. Turn out I was worrying about nothing. The interview was really cool and didn’t make me feel silly. And it didn’t happen in front of clients, it was in one sole corner of the salon. Also, I was asked a few questions I hadn’t prepped for. And I surprised myself by answering them without a second thought. I guess deep down I know everything is up in my head. I was super proud of me and Nicole. And afterwards I realised I had a lot of fun and now I want to do it all the time.




This interview is part of our Protege team fun, and will be shown at The Profile Weekend in the middle June. We get to go to the weekend, which is held at Alton Towers (we also get tickets for the park. Woop!) It is the launch of the new Viton-S range and also an awards show. Were going to be getting on stage to be announced as the Clynol Protege Team 2013. How crazy!

This means..I need to get buying! I need a dress to wear in the evening. Its super super super smart, black tie, all that jazz. I have been browsing ASOS and the like but I think I need to see the clothes in person. Massive shopping trip on my day off to plan. Any suggestions on what I could wear? Im thinking peplum to hide my mid tyre..

Hope your enjoying this read ❤


Wanna see something creative?

I have been ultra lucky this past week. Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in the “I’ll have the same as last time” routine, but this week I have had a few clients who wanted a complete colour over-haul. I like nothing more than changing a clients over all look. My client, Helena, took inspiration from Karen O (Yeah yeah yeahs lead vocalist) by wanting half a head of bleach tint, with a deep brown section at the nape of the neck. The cut Karen has accentuates the colour, so we took vibes from that and created a style which also suited Helena’s needs.

On the flip to that, another client Simone always had a short crop with a bleach tint. This week, we went all out copper on her. When you darker over bleach, you need to pre-pig the hair. The pre-pig i had known has been discontinued, so i used a true semi permanent (7.6) from the Clynol range. This was let to process for 15 minutes and wash and dried ready for further application. I used a mixture of 6.0 and 6.6 (from the Clynol Viton S range). The colour was perfect!

I was lucky enough to catch-up with a good friend from school today. I have started my NVQ level 3 training recently, so have been screaming out for models! Kerry nominated herself, and I sure am glad! She had completely natural hair colour, which is like a blank canvas! I was also given free reign to do whatever I wanted (except bright purple). We decided to keep it natural, but to add a few different depths and learnt towards a few weaves of light ash blonde. I loved this colour, and quite fancy it for myself!

I love a good before and after 🙂
