SILKE London – Your new Best Friend

est. 2000 (1)

SILKE London

We are so excited to be stocking these life changing hair enhancers!

So, you ask yourself, “What is a SILKE Hair wrap?”

We decided to crack the code and the reasons why you need one in your life!

What is it?

Ever find split ends and broken hair on your pillow when you wake up? Well, fear not, this is for you. It’s a 100% silk hair wrap that protects hair at night to eliminate the nightly friction and moisture absorption of bed linen that causes breakages, frizz and split ends! While it’s doing all that it is also conditioning your hair which helps to promote growth, thickness and it extends the time between washes and blow-dries!

A bit of history?

London based hair stylist Maria has been in the industry for over 32 years and has a reputation of being able to tame unruly and difficult to manage hair. She had access to all the treatments, all the products but she couldn’t find anything to help her hair grow and prevent breakage. She realised that hair was receiving extreme damage while we sleep! So, she decided to wrap her hair in 100% silk, it has many benefits for your skin, so it must do the same for your hair! While there are many women who know the benefits of silk wraps, many didn’t – Maria seen the gap in the market and went for it!

Maria says, “I want women all around the world to experience that same confidence they feel when they step out of my salon chair, each and every morning.”

Each product created blends Maria’s industry knowledge and age old traditional beauty secrets to allow each woman, of every hair type to treat their hair with love and respect it deserves.

Why you need it

This year, The Dylan Bradshaw Academy were asked by the DCU Style Society to do the hair for the biggest event of the Clubs and Socs calendar – the DCU Style Fashion Show.

Our students and educators brought their tools to the Northside when we visited the DCU Campus.

Glitter and hairspray filled the room and we knew we were ready to make the gorgeous models ready for the catwalk!

The Look: Girls

unnamed (2)

The theme of the evening was Dystopia vs Utopia and wanted to reflect this in the hair!

The Academy were asked for a sleek middle parting with a textured pony. Check out how we achieved this look.

1. Gel the sides down using Super Fixer Gel from Matrix.

11112214-1924294600680627

2.  Tie the hair in a ponytail and wrap with hair from the bottom of the ponytail.

3. Using a barrel tong, curl the ponytail.

4. Create texture using Matrix Height Riser dust. This will create a messy contrast with the sleek top.

5. Finish the look with Matrix Volume Fixer hairspray.

The Look: Boys 

This was an easy look – the boys weren’t fussy and we just styled their hair that best suited them.
