Tis the season to… moisturise, hydrate and basically do anything necessary to keep winter from destroying your hair!
Whether it’s the central heating or the general stress of the busy festive season that’s leaving your hair feeling a bit frazzled, you’re sure to find a solution at West with Style.
The Westhill based salon and barbershop has built a reputation for quality thanks to its expert team of hair stylists, and it was even selected as a finalist for Hair Salon of the Year at the Society Awards 2019.
It offers a variety of products and services to help you look after yourself this winter. Here are just some of the ways you can treat yourself at West with Style…
1. Festive hair ups
Want to look and feel great for your Christmas night out? West with Style is offering a special festive hair service, where you’ll get to pick from one of three hair-ups for just £25.
The Festive Hair-Up Menu includes two full up-dos and one half-up-half-down style, with all looks taking just 30 minutes to complete.
It’s perfect for taking a bit of pressure off getting ready for your next party, without breaking the bank.
2. Freshen up your colour
Come winter time, it’s common to fancy a colour change – darker hair just seems to go well with autumnal palettes, right? Luckily, changing up your colour is now easier and healthier than ever.
“A lot of colours are quite conditioning, so they don’t really dry the hair out any more,” says Allan Dalgarno, director of West with Style.
“A lot more people are going for darker ombres, so toning down bright blonde with coppers or chestnuts.”
You can also try out a new darker shade for winter with a temporary Gloss Service colour from Wella Professional, available at West with Style. This semi-permanent colour also adds condition and shine.
3. Protect your hair
Winter is notorious for drying out your hair, leaving it frizzy, brittle and dull – and that can have a knock-on effect on confidence.
“Normally at this time of year hair tends to get a bit drier because of central heating, and it can also dry out your scalp,” says Allan.
The good news is, West with Style has plenty of products to protect your hair this winter and keep you looking – and feeling – great. This includes Fusion shampoos and conditioners, which protect your hair with protein, and the System Professional Purifying shampoo, which keeps your scalp clear and healthy.
Regular haircuts, which Allan recommends you get every 6-8 weeks, will also help to keep your hair healthy and strong
4. Take some time out
Feeling a little stressed with the busy festive season? Take a moment or two out of your schedule for a spot of pampering.
At Millenium Beauty, located within West with Style, you can treat yourself to a variety of rejuvenating treatments, from a cleansing facial to a relaxing full-body massage.
You could even get Christmas party ready with a gel nail manicure, lash lift or brow tint whilst you wait for your colour to develop during your next salon appointment.
5. Pamper yourself with expert products
Treat yourself – or someone special! – to a premium gift set from West with Style and you can continue to look after your hair at home.
Fight frizz with smoothing products from Kebelo, strengthen hair with a Wellaplex treatment or introduce luxe Sebastian professional products into your hair care routine.
At West Man, the barbershop from the West with Style team, you’ll also find some great gift sets to treat the men in your life this Christmas, including beard and shaving products from Captain Fawcett. They make ideal stocking fillers!
