The perils of over-processing - the celebrity way!

This Winter it would seem that all of Hollywood have headed for the chop and crop...with Hunger Games beauty Jennifer Lawrence leading the pack with a super stylish and low maintenance crop - far removed from the long tresses that she has sported since coming to our attention a couple of years ago. With a sweeping side fringe this cut frames her face, enhancing her delicate features.

Another Jennifer has taken the plunge this week with Friends star Jen Aniston lopping off her length to reveal a jaw length dishevelled bob, perfect for the working woman on the go..

And what do both Jen's have in common apart from the same first name?? A hair disaster! Even celebrities fall victim to hair catastrophes despite being tended to by some of the most expensive and exclusive salons in the Hollywood Hills!

Both women claim to have gone for the chop because their hair was suffering from over-processing, highlighting (ahem) how important it is to ensure that you use the correct products to protect your hair.

It is vital in-salon to assess client hair prior to undertaking a colour procedure - to check its strength, the colour history of the client and also any lifestyle or health changes that may have recently taken place which can affect the condition of the hair. Its also salon policy to now carry out a patch test at least 24 hours prior to any new colour appointment to avoid any nasty allergic reactions to colour products used.

Wella are constantly developing their colour products to ensure that they deposit colour effectively whilst maintaining the condition of the hair and we find that Wella Sebastian Cellophanes ( a true semi-permanent) provide superb coverage whilst maintaining hair health..

As a Stylist it is vitally important to recommend to clients the correct products for use outside the salon environment in order to keep their hair in tip top condition between visits. We always recommend a Heat Protection Spray and a suitable combination Shampoo & Conditioner (including at-home Treatments for colour clients) for them to use at home to maintain their style, condition and hair health.

With the onset of Winter, Central Heating, Air Conditioning and inclement weather conditions, protecting hair becomes more important than ever. Remember, your hair is constantly on show so invest to impress - its the wisest thing to do!
