Training and sun, sun, sun!

At 77 The Hill, it’s all about training!

All of us attend training courses, even Mel the salon owner, even though he has been hairdressing a very long time – 40 years to be precise!

Mel attended a 2-day precision cutting course this week where he was able to create 3 new looks using life-like hair blocks. He thoroughly enjoyed his creations and time spent getting back to basics.

Mel said afterwards:

“This was fantastic concentrated time, purely on hairdressing without interruption. In the salon environment, there can be many distractions and it was so refreshing to get the creative juices flowing freely – enabling a feeling of creating something different from someone else’s perspective which was incredibly satisfying, I enjoyed it immensely. You’re never too old to learn.”

Holiday hair

As we all know, damage from the sun is commonplace, we go on holiday once a year and expose our skin and hair to extremely high temperatures which can be damaging and in the case of damaged skin, can cause cancer. Therefore it is extremely important to take the right precautions to minimise any effects.

Our hair is no different and needs tender loving care whilst we are exposed to the sun, chlorine in the swimming pool and salt from the sea.

We have new sun products in this week. We know these will be very popular and advise you not to miss out. Milk shake have devised a haircare package for when you are in the sun.

The all over shampoo is for hair and body, moisturising your hair beautifully to minimise the after effects of the sun. It contains vitamin E and a UV filter for added protection.

The intensifying hair mask is pure luxury in a pot! It will fight the effects of sun, sea, and chlorine. It can be used after every shampoo and left on for 2-3 minutes for the full effect. Lastly, the leave-in treatment, should be sprayed on after shampooing and conditioning and left in the hair. This will protect against intense sun damage, help to prevent split ends, add body volume and shine and de-tangles in a flash. It will help in humid conditions, preventing frizz too.

All three products contain organic muru muru from a native palm plant in Brazil which adds a natural fat to the hair to enhance the condition further.

The packs retail at £40 each and you can choose from a lovely quality free gift such as a beach bag, clutch bag, silver cuff beach ball or kaftan.
