Sally Montague
Ive been fortunate enough to have recently completed a photo shoot for Vogue. It was an amazing experience and I learnt all about the trends for the up-and-coming season. This season attention is focused on the condition of your hair and the aim is for a more polished result. Hair colour for the next season is centred around dusty mink and powdery velvet tones. Hair is transforming from the Kate Moss years to Kate Middleton, but with a 40s and 70s influence showing through, as seen at Louis Vuitton and Chloe.

KH Hair Salon
The new seasons colour palette will be very glossy, so look out for disconnected haircuts with strong lines and vibrant bold colours including auburn, chocolate browns and deep fiery reds. A product that helps achieve these styles is a moulding mud, perfect for sleek, smooth, shiny bobs and for short textured styles to create movement and hold. These hairstyles fit with the fashion trends of the 60s/70s, with bold colours alongside mixed textures.

The Benefits of Brushing
We all know the benefits of daily brushing, but to protect hair from unnecessary damage caused by moulded seams on plastic combs, switch to a safer alternative, such as a wooden boar brushes. This style of brush stimulates hair roots, distributes natural oils and massages the muscles of the scalp a real treat! Alternatively, give your hair a nourishing experience with the unique detangling comb from the Macadamia Natural Oil boutique collection. Its infused with Macadamia Healing Oil and the specially formulated resin cleanses hair without leaving any residue behind soft and silky in seconds!


Condition and Care
Many people have the misconception that daily hair conditioning causes flatness or added weight, but a simple solution is to apply conditioner only from the mid-shaft of the hair to the ends. The HSuan Wen Hua hair masque, from Lush, is a nutritious and moisturising treatment that is great for use on tired hair after hot summer months. It is packed with hair-softening avocado, contains balsamic vinegar to give an amazing shine, and an infusion of vitamin-packed watercress to increase hair elasticity and tensile strength.
