Oh hey, bae


Well it’s a (ahem, tres belated) happy new year from us, and what better way to greet 2019 than with a brand new blog talking all things gorgeous hair.

2018 was amazing.

We had two marriages (yay for love!)

And even though it’s January, and it’s going to feel like 2021 before winter is over…

There’s still plenty to feel pretty about. Isn’t there, Daniel?

No more ‘going out out’ trauma. No more pretending mince pies are one of your 5-a-day. You can offish tell everyone you’re only eating actual food every 2nd Tuesday. And really? Let 2019 be the year that’s all about you.

We are well on board with that, because the blow dry is back. It’s the simplest way to give yourself a bit of love and it doesn’t break the bank. And, having been road-testing the latest quiet tech hairdryers from Dyson in the salon, and the latest straightening goodness from GHD, we say amen to making those locks as perfect as possible.

What’s more, our blow outs start at only 27.50, so with that in mind, here are our Top 5 favourite hair trends that should definitely be on your radar this 2019.

1. Blunt that bob, bitch

Sharper edges are where it’s at with fringes and blunt ends. We don’t have any in the dressing up box here at L&W HQ, but rainbow wigs are definitely a ‘thing’ if you want to channel your inner Minaj. And frankly, who doesn’t.

2. Refresh the ombré

If you’re brunette and still loving those ombré ends, go a bit bolder with your colour and pop multi-coloured tips on for a proper colour refresh. Daniel, as resident major L’Oreal Colour Expert, is your homme for that.

3. Braids are back

Oh darling, no that’s not you with your ironic pigtails at the back. Think cute micro braiding in the hands of the professionals, Jacqui and Amy with their immaculate magic hands.

4. Stick a pin in it

Brooches in hair are all over les catwalks, emblazoned with Gucci sparkle. If your budget isn’t on the Kardashian side, fear not, you can still rock this look. Just don’t go too Nan brooch-y on us, k?

5. Embrace the grey

Amp your greys up – seriously it adds a filter-like effect to your face. Finally, something on the ‘gram we can get on board with.

Until next time, call in or call up and treat yourself to some hair love with Stephen, Daniel, Jacqui and Amy.
