They say everybody deserves a second chance in life, well why should your hair be any different?



Discover the Kérastase Résistance collection, a range of hair care products that fight the symptoms of damaged hair. From fine, weak hair to thick, brittle hair with split ends, hair appears stronger and more resilient with the Résistance range.



" A major Scientific discovery: the KAP's"


Constantly putting into question the very structure of hair is an obesession for Kérastase. L’Oréal Advanced Reasearch has shown the fundamental role played by the KAPs (Keratin Associated Proteins), major partners in ensuring the structure of hair. These tiny proteins link keratins to each other and attach them together. An uncommonly strong cohesive power without which the fiber’s structure would collapse.




When hair becomes damaged, these proteins disappear, which consequently destructures the internal architecture of the fiber and leads to its gradual collpase.


The Myrothamnus Flabellifolia is an incredible plant able to come back to like even after ten years of near death. When once again in contact with water, it regains its original casing and begins a new cycle of life. L’Oreal Advanced Research has aspired to take full advantage of this plant’s vital essence. The precious sap taken from the leaves was especially selected by Kérastase to enrich its Résistance-Thérapiste formulas.

We all spend time and money to ensure we look fabulous for our favorite long haul destination, but the flight can wreak havoc with your skin!




Fear not! We have some great advice from our skin experts to minimise the effects of flying on route to paradise. Arriving Glitterati gorgeous and raring to go.



Exfoliate your skin before the flight


The morning of your flight gently exfoliate your face, this will remove the top layer of dead skin cells and in turn allow your moisturiser to absorb better into the skin.


We recommend ESPA Refining Skin Polish - A brightening exfoliate to deeply cleanse, smooth and perfectly revitalise.


£26


Remove Make Up before you sleep


It is essential to remove your make up before sleeping on the plane, Jane Iredale's Magic Mitt - £17 is

your pefect plane partner as it cleverly removes all makeup (even mascara) using warm water only. Leaving the skin completely clean without the irritating leftovers of face wipes. No cleanser necessary.




"Remaining at a high altitude for a long duration means the body obtains less oxygen leaving your skin tired, dry and in need of some TLC. Apply a light skin hydration spray or a moisturiser once or twice during the flight. Your skin will remain silky and soft for when you touch down."



Refresh the skin with ESPA Hydrating Floral Spritzer - £23 refresh and tone your skin with this pure, naturally comforting and replenishing the skin.


Prevent swollen feet and thread veins


Long haul flights can often cause the ankles to swell, this can increase the risk of varicose veins as well as thrombosis.


Doing regular ankle exercises throughout the flight will help, to lower the risk of thrombosis to top up your omega 3 fatty acid, which thins the blood. Start taking the Advanced Nutrition Programme Omega 3 and 6- £28 a couple of weeks prior to the flight.



Banish Puffy Eyes


"A handy little tip I have learnt to help banish puffiness and water retention in the face is to ask your flight crew for a napkin and an ice cube. Wrap the ice cube in the napkin and very carefully smooth over the face keeping it moving at all times. Be very gently around the delicate eye area. This can really help combat puffiness associated with long haul flights"


For a gentle soothing infusion try ESPA soothing eye lotion - £23 a restorative miracle worker with cornflower to calm and reduce puffiness. Apply lotion to dampened cotton pads after flight; rest gently on lids for 10 minutes.



Follow these steps for naturally beautiful beach ready skin, all products available in salon now.

2015 HAIR TRENDS FOR MEN AT GLITTERATI4MEN


Based on the latest runways and street style from the world’s most fashionable cities, take inspiration from our Surrey Hair Salon with our predictions for the top new hairstyles for men 2015. Remember that trends for men evolve at a pace that you can keep up with. The barbering trend of 2014 will continue and new looks will be variations of current styles. At Glitterati4men we’re feeling motivated, are you looking for a new style sir? Take inspiration from glitterati as we give you an insight into what designers think you will be wearing this year.


TEXTURED HAIRSTYLES FOR MEN

If you have a thick or thin head of hair, both can benefit from a short textured hairstyle. Add some product and tousle your hair with your fingers until you achieve the look you want for a bang on trend style. This works well for every hair type and is a good way to add volume to fine or thin hair. For thick and unruly hair, texturizing will help to eliminate bulk. Speak to your stylist at Glitterati about creating dimension and texture to your hair.


Messy textured styles are growing in popularity. Keeping plenty of length through the top, while styling the hair forward onto the face, just let the finished product have some texture and wildness for a bang on trend style.





LONG HAIR FOR MEN

Long healthy hair is an attractive asset to any man, but not every man has what it takes to pull off wearing their hair long. For a casual look long hair for men should not look freshly blow dried, aim for a relaxed look rather than overly preened. The man bun has a lot to do with this, replacing the questionable ponytails of the past. Long hair doesn’t have to be really long, but whatever style you prefer, hair needs proper care so be sure to keep up with regular trims to keep your hair in tip top condition, though you won’t need them as frequently as with short hair. Long haired men will stand out in any crowd, there is no doubt about it.





TOP KNOT FOR MEN

Following on from long hairstyles, brings in the option to wear your hair tied back. Also known as a top knot this hairstyle is a variation of the man bun in that the hair is grown long enough to allow tying it up. An attractive man is at least seven times more attractive when he’s rocking a man bun! Brush your long hair back with your fingers into a ponytail or top knot, if your hair is in great condition this style will suit almost anyone. Top knots can work really well combined with a scruffy shaggy beard. A true pioneer of the top knot hair raising trend is David Beckham, what more can I say? Hair trends for 2015 are dynamic and versatile, an important point these days when you may need to look professionally groomed at work, but prefer a high fashion look for your leisure time. Sleek, shiny, slicked back, looking cool and we’re loving it. The current trend is for shorter on the sides, longer on the top cuts, that are classic and dapper while still being modern and edgy. Add product for some hold and shine, and you’ve got a clean, masculine, sexy, versatile look. Take a look at our slick and shiny hairstyle ideas at Glitterati that stand head and shoulders above the rest.







We specialize in men’s hair at our hairdressing salon in Surrey and are aware of the latest trends for gent’s haircuts and styles to create your new look. To book in for your hair appointment at our traditional hair salon give us a call on 01932 842753

ecaille hair colour trend 2015
ecaille hair colour trend 2015

A beautiful new sun-kissed hair colour is gaining favour with celebrities so if you’re looking for an on-trend look for 2015 ask us about the latest ‘ombre’ colour technique called ecaille (or tortoiseshell in French).


As with ombre and balayage, the ecaille look is darker at the roots and grows lighter at the ends but it offers a more subtle graduation of colour and face-framing highlights.


We can add rich chocolate shades for brunettes who want a ‘warmer’ look, or ash tones for a cooler hair colour. Blondes can be updated with golden hues, vanilla shades or more dramatic platinum tones.


If you want this look, we will slightly darken your base colour before adding signature flashes of lighter colour to the ends. We will also frame your face by adding lighter colours around your fringe area.


If you are interested in the ecaille or any other hair colour technique, you can trust in the hair colour technicians at Glitterati Weybridge to deliver a hair colour you will love.

Glitterati Hair in Weybridge are calling for people to have hair cut off for use in wigs by the Little Princess Charity.


The Little Princess Trust is a charity that which supplies free of charge, real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment. The charity, which was founded in 2006, has recently reached a huge milestone when it gave away its 2,000th wig to a sick child.

The Trust relies solely on the generosity of individual donors and community fundraisers organising all sorts of events to raise money to enable the charity to purchase more real-hair wigs for children.


Glitterati are asking supporters to donate their own hair for it to be made into a wig for a child by organising sponsored haircut. Glitterati will also donate 100% of its profits of your hair cut bill to the charity, Their Goal is to raise £10,000, all you have to do is donate a minimum of 7 inches of your hair and ask as many freinds and family members to sponser you. Go to the Glitterati Just Giving Page to donate now.

A large number of wigs are manufactured and given to the charity free of charge. In addition to these free wigs, the charity has to purchase further wigs in order to keep up with demand. The purchased wigs cost on average £350 each. Therefore if you choose to donate your hair, please consider raising money for the charity at the same time. Any amount of fundraising will help towards this cost. Details of how to donate hair (minimum length 7”/17cm) can be found on the Little Princess Trust website.


Jessie J kindly donated her hair in March to the charity when she had it cut in aid of Comic Relief.

One brave teenager recently decided to donate her hair. Unfortunately before she had time to post it to the charity, she herself was sadly diagnosed with cancer. In this very unusual situation, the charity arranged for the girl to have a wig made using her own hair.


Here are some of the generous adults and children that are in the process of raising money or have donated their hair to children all around the country who need their help:


Emma Walker

10-year-old Emma Walker had been growing her hair for five years without a trim before she heard of the Little Princess Trust and decided she wanted to help. Emma donated 10 inches of her waist-length hair for use in making wigs and raised £160 in sponsorship in the process.


Marie Strickland and Pam Cox
Marie Strickland and Pam Cox

This mother and daughter team from Ilkeston both decided to donate some of their hair for the trust. Hairdressers managed to cut 13 inches from mum Pam, and a further 16 inches from Marie, along with £800 in sponsorship. Speaking to her local newspaper Marie said, “I didn’t dare have my head shaved but they will make wigs out of the hair we send which is what we wanted.”


Izaak Ellis

12-year-old Izaak has been under pressure from friends, family and his teachers to have a haircut for a few years now, and this month he finally had a trim. Izaak decided he wanted to raise money for a cancer charity in honour of his grandmother who died from the disease, and that the hair collected should be used by the Little Princess Trust for use in a wig.


Freya Norton


As well as donating her prized ponytail, 8-year-old Freya raised over £500 in donations – more than enough to cover the £350 needed to make a hairpiece for a child. Despite the initial concerns of her mother, Freya was determined to cut her hair off and donate it to a child who didn’t have any. She is said to be thrilled with her new, much shorter hairstyle.


Charlotte Clark

Charlotte Clark underwent a full head shave in front of classmates at her school. The 13-year-old from Coningsby decided to undergo the dramatic hair cut to raise money for cancer research after her mother was suspected to have some form of the disease. As well as donating her hair for wig-making by the Little Princess Trust, Charlotte also raised more than £100 in cash.

Visiting a salon for the first time may be a daunting experience, especially when it comes to colour. With over 28% of women having their hair coloured more than they have it cut and 1 in 6 unable to identify their natural hair colour as they have been dying it for so long, technical has a huge part to play in your Glitterati salon experience.





"Is colouring my hair going to cause it more harm than good?"


"Is it possible to achieve the colour I love and keep my length?"


"How long will it take me to go back to blonde, do i have to use bleach?"


"Help I have grey but don’t want to have dry frizzy hair?"



Are just a few of the questions the technical team are faced with on a daily basis? Hair Colour has held a bad reputation for causing damage to your hair over the years, there is no denying that colour when used incorrectly can put your hair through it's paces and even leave it a little worse for wear the other side.


Things have moved on! New technology has been discovered and like any phone, laptop or television hair colour is constantly improving, as are our skills and knowledge in our innovative technical department.






Here at Glitterati we pride ourselves on offering all our clients a complete ammonia free colour service!


What does that actually mean "ammonia free" and dose it actually benefit me?


The main purpose of ammonia in hair colour was its ability to raise the ph level of the hair and so sufficiently open the cuticle allowing the colour to enter the cortex of the hair. When mixed with pro oxide the ammonia neutralises the pigments to a greater degree, which in turn has negative side effects on the hair.


1) When the hair is swelling quickly to enable the colour to reach the cortex, a large amount of protein and moisture are lost. This is how the damage is caused when using ammonia in colour.


2) The PH of the hair is raised to such a high level by the ammonia, it is impossible for it to return to its previous state. Therefore the cuticle remains open, resulting in continued moisture and protein loss and rapid colour fade.


3) As the cuticle will remain open, the colour pigment must remain as high as possible in the product, resulting in dense, lifeless and flat hair colour.






Fear not! The next generation of hair colour is here! Colour that not only eliminates the usage of ammonia and its damaging effect to the hair but actually offers an incredible range of benefits, fortifying every strand with amazing colour results!

We fell in love with Redken hair colour immediately after using it and have never looked back since, we urge all of you who are feeling a little dull and lifeless to come for a complimentary consultation with any of our colour technicians and begin your journey to beautiful hair colour today...



Here are a few little tips from Redken to understanding the hair lingo at your consultation...


Basecolor: Color applied at the root area or all-over before a dimensional/creative color technique is done.


Contrast: Contrast is a value applied to highlights. High-contrast highlights are much lighter than the surrounding hair and provide a dramatic look. Lower contrast highlights result in a more natural look.

Cool: Cool is a tonal value that can apply to blonde, brunette, and red shades. A color is said to have “cool tones” if it tends toward blue, violet or green. Cool colors include platinum blondes, ash browns, and plum reds.


Coverage: Coverage is a measure of a haircolor’s ability to cover gray. Some haircolor formulations are too transparent to effectively cover gray hair. Redken Color Gels Permanent Conditioning Haircolor provides exceptional gray coverage with resistance to fading.

Dimension: Dimension is a function of the range of tones in your hair. A head of hair that is all one color is said to be “flat” or lacking dimension. Your stylist can add dimension to your hair with highlights or lowlights.


Double-process: A double-process color refers to anytime two color services are done in one visit. Generally this is done by doing the first color service, washing and drying the hair, then doing the second color. This can include lightening the hair then applying a toner, or doing a permanent color followed by a glaze.


Express Highlights: Express Highlights are done by applying a small amount of foils or painted-on pieces, usually focused on framing the face.


Glaze: Glazes involve using a demi-permanent color to enhance, enrich, change, match, tone down or intensify natural or color-treated hair while harmonizing contrast.


Hair Painting: Hair Painting, also known as balayage, is the process of free-handing or sweeping hair color, lightener or toner downwards in soft strokes directly on the surface of the desired section. This method is used to create dimension with a natural, softer look.


Highlights: Highlighting hair means isolating select strands in the hair and treating them with a haircolor or lightener to make them lighter than their base/natural color. Highlights can add dimension by contrasting with the rest of the hair and are created with foils, a cap or special combs or brushes used for “painting on” the color.


Lift: Lift is the chemical process of lightening the color of the hair. Different haircolor formulations have different lifting abilities.


Lowlights: Lowlights are created by using color with foils, caps, or painted on to darken specific pieces and create dimension. Generally low lights will be 2-3 levels darker than your basecolor and slightly warmer. This can be used for a more natural look or create accents within the hair.

Rebalancing; Rebalancing is the process of bringing the hair back into balance, and can be created with the combination of highlights and lowlights, and/or glazes.


Single-process: A single process refers to any color service that is done in one step. This can be using a permanent color that lifts and deposits, a glaze, highlights/lowlights without toning, or a creative color service with only one process.


Texture: Texture, as defined by the diameter of an individual hair strand, is generally described as fine, medium, or coarse. Your stylist will factor in your hair’s texture when determining your best color formulation.


Trend Pastel: Trend Pastel refers to the softened, lightened hues of colors such as red, purple, green, orange, yellow, or blue. Pastel tones of color are meant as colorants and toning shades, and are best achieved when applied to very pale blonde hair to create for example pink, lavender, mint green tones.

Tone: Tone, in haircoloring, is the term used to describe a specific color—”golden” blonde, “coppery” red, “ash” brown. Colors are divided into warm tones and cool tones.


Warm: Warm is a tonal value that can apply to blonde, brunette, and red shades. A color is said to have “warm tones” if it tends toward yellow, orange or red. Warm colors include golden blondes, auburn brunettes, and coppery

A dry scalp is a common nuisance more so in winter. Even more of a plague is dandruff, the frequent companion of the dry scalp. Find out what causes the itchy problem and what you can do to get the upper hand against the itch.






Many of us see the slightest flake or feel the faintest itch and reach for the head and shoulders. Stop! Although a dry scalp is prone to dandruff, it is not dandruff and in fact just a dry scalp. Many factors can cause dry scalp conditions, heat from the hair dryer, over washing the hair and the main culprit dry heated indoor air. This is why we tend to see a few more flakes as we head into winter.





Dandruff only occurs when the dry scalp is irritated so much that more and more cells are produced, the large cells then accumulate on the scalp and clump together to become visible as dandruff.



Using mild, gentle hair products will restore a dry scalp and suppress the dandruff formation. We would like to introduce our HAIR AND SCALP HERO...


ESPA Pink Hair and Scalp Mud




The great thing about this product is that whilst common wisdom dictates you must only apply conditioner from mid-length downwards Pink Hair & Scalp Mud is actually designed to be used from the scalp to the ends. Vitamin C-rich watercress and Apricot kernel oil soothe and nourish the scalp, while the red clay stimulates circulation to the follicles to help boost growth and promote healthy, glossy, strong hair. So while you’re giving your hair some love and attention you can rest assured that your scalp is also benefitting from a good old moisturise! And the goods news doesn’t stop there… A healthy scalp means you’ll benefit from healthier hair in the long-term.



Pink Hair & Scalp Mud is completely natural and silicone-free. Using mineral rich red clays, this unique conditioning treatment mud mask leaves your hair soft, smooth and most importantly your scalp moisturised and irritation free.


This product is also amazing on sun-damaged or chemically treated hair. It’s great if you’ve been on holiday and the chlorine in the pool has taken its toll. For a more intensely nourishing treatment you can leave the mud on overnight with barely any residue escaping onto your pillow – the scent is so beautiful you’ll be reluctant to wash it off the next day…





If you’re after a dry scalp saviour or just a luxurious treat for your hair, look no further. The intensely nourishing Pink Hair & Scalp Mud is available at Glitterati now.
