What does toner do?

getting-my-hair-colored

Toners are an important step in the hair colouring process. Check out why it’s so important and how you can achieve your perfect colour.

Bleach is not a colour

Contrary to popular belief, bleach is not a colour. All bleach does is take the colour and pigment out of your hair. The professional term for bleach is “pre-lightener” which basically just strips away colour without adding any colour.

Final colour comes from the toning process

Your colour actually comes from the final step which is toning! For example, take blondes, the cooler the tone the more silvery it comes out and the warmer the tone the more coppery you get.

It’s not just for blondes! 

Toners aren’t just for blondes! It’s essential brunettes and red heads get toners for added gloss and shine as well as achieving a certain shade.

How long does it last?

Toner doesn’t last long which is why your colour fades. Depending on your hair type, toners can last from 2 weeks to 6 weeks. Usually, previously coloured hair which is more porous will hold colour for less time than natural or “virgin hair” which can hold colour for up to 6 weeks!

Great for shine

Acid based toners cann add shine to natural hair and won’t affect the colour. It gives a super glosssy, varnish like effect. This is known as glossing.

Come in to the Salon and ask our stylists what’s the right tone for you! Book here. 

Smartbond: Why you need it

xsmartbond.jpg.pagespeed.ic.gjJvEA4j1V

Smartbond is L’oreal’s new hair service that protects bonds for stronger hair fiber during lightening sessions. Thinking of going blonde? You’re going to want to read all about this!

From input from hairdressers, L’oreal’s Research and Innovation Department used its 100 years of scientific expertise and long-standing knowledge in high-performance hair care to create smart bond.

smartbond

Why do I need it?

Without using Smartbond in your colour service you risk:

  1. Damage by extensive colouring or lightening the hair.
  2. Bonds in the hair weakening from oxidation.
  3. Bonds in the hair can’t reform because the ions have been damaged.

Loreal_smartbond_17july16_6W5A2058

What does it do?

  1. Targets the weaker parts of the hair bond to strengthen and limit stress to keep the bond together.
  2. Colour will take more evenly as it will improve the overall finish of your hair.
  3. Reverse the feel of damaged hair by reconstructing the weak ion bonds.

Will it affect my colour?

No, Smartbond adapts to colour products without affecting the lift or tone at all.

How does it work?

Smartbond is added to your colour when mixed and applied as normal. The colour is processed for the usual time. When the colour is ready to come off the hair is rinsed without shampoo and towel dried. Smartbond is applied as a pre-shampoo all over and left on for 10 minutes. This is then rinsed and shampoo and conditioner is applied as normal.

How much does it cost?

It is an additional service which costs €30 on top of your colour service. In order to maintain healthy locks the conditioner to take home is €20 and should be used once a week to protect the bonds.

The Secret to Soft Hands..


This week we caught up with our fantastic nail technician, Leanne, to get all her top tips on looking after your hands at home and getting the perfect nail bar finish on your polish.

Nail Bar

Keep reading to find out all of Leanne’s secrets to baby soft hands all year round.

  1. The number one basic tip she gives to keep your hands at their best, long term – is to always use a moisturiser, especially containing an SPF. As the skin is thinnest on the hands (and neck) we need to take extra care that we protect these areas as they can be very quickly affected by UV rays and are exposed to multiple hard wearing conditions throughout your day.
  2. Leanne recommends adding a few drops of cuticle oil into your moisturiser for a more intense hydration. Her favourite pick is the Essie Apricot Oil (€15) as it nourishes, rejuvenates and hydrates the cuticle, while being quick absorbing and without leaving any greasy residue.Apricot Oil
  3. When applying your polish, Leanne always recommends to prep the nails with a base coat, such as the Essie First Base Coat (€15), which contains adhesive ingredients helping the polish to stick for longer, encouraging less chipping and lasting wear.Essie First Base Coat
  4. Choosing your desired colour of the rainbow, Leanne says it’s best to apply two coats of nail polish for intensity of colour and to ensure an even application all over the nail. All Essie Colours (€15). She recommends to “seal the edges” of the nail with the polish every time for maximum longevity.
    Essie Colour - Orange Essie Colour - PinkEssie Colour - Mint Essie Colour - Blue
  5. And finishing with the Essie Good To Go Top Coat (€15) which is fast drying, protects nails and provides the brilliant high shine finish you crave when you book in with Leanne herself!

Essie Good To Go Top Coat

Leanne’s star hand care tip for the blog:

If your hands are feeling particularly dry and cuticles are more dehydrated than you’ve seen them before. Leanne’s fail safe home treatment to include in your night routine will have no one looking back!

Warm some baby oil in the microwave for no more than 10 seconds, soak your fingers for 10-15 minutes and your hands will be left as supple as a babies..
