Celebrity hairdresser Shane Jones (Olivia Newton John, Mariel
Hemmingway and Little Joe’s Gail Elliot are all clients) tells us what women want – at least when it comes to their hair – plus what the hottest colour and style trends will be this summer.
1. You’re internationally renowned for creating head-turning
hair – what’s your secret?
It comes down to finding the right colour for your complexion and a cut
that suits the shape of your face – each individual is different, so there
is no cookie-cutter solution. The right colour can ‘lift’ your complexion
and showing off voluminous, glossy hair instantly adds youthful glamour
to your overall look – hair extensions are the simplest way to get heads
turning for the right reasons!
2. What’s your personal colour advice to clients?
Don’t D.I.Y. dye if you’re bored with your look – small changes,
like a deep side part to frame the face, are an instant update without
the potentially disastrous results of at-home hair dye. Leave it to the
professionals to get creative with colour!
Use colour-fast shampoo and conditioner to help your hue last longer and
treat your locks to a nourishing mask every single week – the more you
look after your colour, the better the condition of your hair.
3. What’s the best way to create natural volume?
If you want a low-maintenance solution for limp or lifeless locks, hair
extensions are perfect – it creates instant volume without the need to reach
for hot rollers or to torture hair with tedious backcombing. Whether it’s
Great Lengths extensions or wefts, we make them look perfectly natural
– you’ll find the compliments come flooding in!
4. What’s the simplest way to transform hair from dull to dazzling?
Wella System Professional treatments transform lifeless locks instantly.
They infuse the cuticle on each strand of hair with keratin, a protein
found naturally in your hair, to give you radical shine and smoothness.
No more frizzy unmanageable locks – just shine, body and bounce that
5. What’s the hottest colour and style trends for hair this season?
Red has seen a revival in the last 12 months but we’re moving into a
season of angelic honey-toned hues for summer – along with the loose
double knot, roughed-up high-top knot and braids.
