Colour Gels Laquers!!

Excellent training day with Jimmy and Thamina from Redken Education showing us new Colour Gels Laquers liquid permanent colour.

This new colour range is all about give high shine and gloss to the hair but with up to 100% grey coverage! It is a liquid permanent colour that delivers intense saturation with a fast application time and quick processing.

It also aligns perfectly with Redkens Shades EQ liquid semi permanent colour, so matching shades for a refresh on your mid lengths and ends has never been easier! Also new red dye technology gives the most vibrant and long lasting reds yet!

While using we found that clients didn’t have an itchy scalp and it’s felt weightless in the hair.

Here are the results ….

This amazing new range will be in the salon week!!!!

Show us your shades!

On Monday morning we welcomed Jimmy and Antony from the RedKen education team for a colour refresh session on the world famous demi permant Shades EQ Gloss.

Shades EQ Gloss is designed to enhance, revitalise and correct tones in your hair, giving a natural shine without compromising the integrity of your hair, it’s the hair colour that thinks it’s a conditioner!

We had a group discussion and talked through the endless possibilities where we can apply this fantastic colour and picked up some really useful hints and tips to keep us up to date with the latest fashions and trends!

We had two lovely models, we gave Millie some lovely shades of pink and Aislinn had some warm coppery tones added all over.

New year, New hair!

On Wednesday 3rd January 2018, we welcomed Helen, Frankie and Nathaniel into Gemini Hair Studio! All three family members had been growing their hair to donate to The Little Princess Trust. Ten plaits later and approximately 110 inches our mission was complete. The Little Princess Trust is a charity that makes wig for children and young adults up to the age of 24 who have suffered hair loss from medical treatment. They rely on donations of human hair and often need several donations to complete one piece. To make your donation, check out their website for all the guidelines. Thank you to Helen, Frankie and Nathaniel for letting us be a part of the experience, we had a blast!

Balayage….. The French word for sweeping

Having proved to be to be more than a fad, balayage has fast become a staple part of our everyday hairdressing service. Providing amazing colour opportunities with minimal upkeep there really isn’t anyone that can’t benefit from this .

With that in mind we have recently sent our Artistic Director Laura up to the Redken training academy in Hammersmith where she worked closely with the incredible Michelle Marshall Redken artist. The day was spent perfecting her known abilities and learning the new techniques that have been developed by the Redken Artists, from going back to the start in a tiny salon in the heart of Paris where the journey for balayage started!
