Elementary

New gowns arrived today! πŸ§₯
Hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray and wipes are stocked up 🧴
Protective masks are on order and our awesome supply partner @schwarzkopfprouk have confirmed that we can be fully stocked prior to opening..... now, all we need is a date... but until then, stay safe, stay at home, let's beat this! #lookingforwardtothenewnormal

Time to roll this bad boy out again.

We understand that some of you may be getting desperate with the glittering strands or those natural roots that give away you aren't a natural blonde 🀫 but waiting will be worth it, we promise.

Don't be tempted by the ever increasing volume of daytime tv hints and tips on how to colour and cut your hair.

🚨 Avoid 'lightening sprays' like the plague as they contain metallic salts that can have a disastrous effect when mixed with bleach🚨

We anticipate a massive workload when we finally reopen and want to get through you lovely lot, who have waited so patiently, as quickly and safely as we can, so unfortunately (in the politest way possible), we can't give priority to fixing home colour disasters.

Drop us a line if you need any guidance and we will help where we can. We aren't taking bookings just yet though, as it is still unclear if we will definitely be allowed to reopen in July but 🀞

We can't wait to be back at work either🧑🀎

Happy International Nurse's Day 2020. We have the privilege of knowing many clients who are, or have been in the nursing profession and we, never more than right now in this moment, thank you for the work you do looking after our health and wellbeing β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ #thankyounurses #internationalnursesday2020

So here we have it.
4th July at the earliest.
Which means we have almost as far to go, as we have already come.
We are not opening our appointment book yet, as there may still be another mountain to climb before we get there.
We renew our plea to avoid home dyes. The 7 minute slot Michael Douglas provides on This Morning is an insult to the hair industry and all we work hard to accomplish. Please get in touch if we can help or guide you with colour, or products but please please, don't ask if we can cut your hair as the answer remains a polite but firm NO!
We will all get where we need to be soon, a little greyer, a little rootier and a little longer, but we will get there, we will be healthy and that is the most important thing.
#stayhome #staysafe #protecttheNHS #itwontbeforever

πŸ™„
Stay Safe everyone 🧑🀎
And buckle up, lets hope it's not too much of a bumpy ride🀞

Thank you to all the heroes that made this possible πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Thank you @the_cottage_ormskirk for our delivery today! #lotsofimportantdatesthismonth #shoplocal #staysafe

The Edge

Hello lovely people and hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather. At The Edge we have been keeping ourselves busy baking cakes and scones for teams of NHS workers and delivering them on a twice weekly basis. To fund this we have been making and delivering afternoon teas for special occasions for those customers that have contacted us via messenger.
We would like to extend this out now so, If you would like to nominate a key worker team that deserves a treat box of cakes and other goodies then please send me a message and we will do our best to do as many as we can. If you would like to order our afternoon tea delivery then again send us a message on Facebook and we will be in touch as soon as we can to organise. The afternoon tea consists of our homemade soup, a selection of sandwiches, homemade cakes,freshly baked scone with jam and cream and macaroons /traybake and costs Β£10 per adult and Β£7 per child. We look forward to hearing from you. Take care and stay safe. Jill and team at The Edge ###

Throwback Thursday!
Torremolinos 1980, busman's holiday for Melissa before she even knew! πŸ˜‚ The eagle eyed amongst you will have seen that hairdyer somewhere before too πŸ˜‰ #tbt #retroclairol #80's

Way back Wednesday!
All the way back to 1983 in our amazing summer uniform from Kowloon Junior School πŸ€ŽπŸ€πŸ’› #kjs #kowloonjuniorschool #waybackwednesday

Hopefully we will all come out of this sparkling πŸ’Ž
The pressure feels very real though at the moment. Whether you are going out to work, working from home or dreaming of the day you can go back, we'll hopefully be back to normal soon, seeing family and friends, going out and enjoying ourselves. #keepgoing #staysafe #onedaywellmeetagain

We have seen a lot of scaremongering going on in the media and news outlets about hairdressers and beauty salons potentially not reopening for 6 months. Now we can not confirm or deny this, but, what we can say is that we find it sad that this kind of unsubstantiated rubbish is allowed to burrow into the minds of the already vulnerable general public. People are looking forward to the day they can feel 'normal' 'fabulous' or just plain old 'neat and tidy' again and articles like this are detrimental to people's mental health! Not to mention ours πŸ™ˆ
Our European neighbours who are seeing an improvement in their situation are starting to ease their lockdown and how successful that is, will be seen in the next few weeks.
Just know, we are here for you now if you need help and we will be there for you whenever the wonderful day is, that we can meet againβœ‚οΈ

Thank you to you all!

🚨DISASTER AVERTED🚨
So today one of our longest serving clients decided to call to check if the box dye (😱) she'd bought two of, was Ok to use. The conversation went as follows. "What colour is it you bought Mrs Anonymous?"
"Oh i picked a golden brown"
"Okaaaay, what numbers is it?" "Erm a 4.3"
*falls off chair*
*A WHAT?! THAT'S FAR TOO DARK"
"Well it says golden"
"Don't let that fool you, it's FOUR shades darker than you normally have"
"Oh I'm glad i checked now, thank god!" And so are we! This could have turned out so differently, like Morticia differently! πŸ–€ and undone 4 years hard work of a gradual lightening process. The circles on the chart show the colour she is against the colour she bought.
Please please don't let words fool you. There is a massive amount of colour out there which can be very confusing. If you have a question or if we can help with your colour please ask 😊

More like a little experiment for me. I take for granted the ability to colour my hair, do my roots, completely change my colour on a whim...perk of the job πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ
But this has got to be the longest i have gone for almost 20 years without colouring my hair and it's strangely liberating!

So for my next trick i enlisted the help of a willing assistant!

This gives a great perspective on how you can cover your roots with a little bit of ingenuity.

My fabulous friend @alexandra_r_johnson can manage her hair on a day to day basis but prefers to leave it to the pros. She can't abide her root and gets them done every 4 weeks. She has a brown root spray but being this fabulous colour, she was really worried about the roots as they grow through.
I explained i wanted her to do and with the help of her talented teenage daughter, voila! Perfect match, great coverage, happy Alex ❀

ROOT ADVICE
So another day in lockdown nearly done. We hope you are staying in if you are able to!
We were thinking about practical help for you and your strands of wisdom as they come through. A few well trusted methods that we like to use, we have demonstrated for you in these pictures.
Now obviously i have light coloured hair, but this can be modified for various colours as you will see in upcoming posts.
The first picture shows my natural regrowth
The second picture show the effect of the Schwarzkopf Osis Boho Rebel- Blond. A pigmented dry shampoo. This comes in three colours, dark, brunette and blond. The blonde can be a little yellow but a quick rub or brush and it calms it down and masks the root.
The third picture shows coverage using blusher/bronzer, just applies with a blusher brush. Works on your parting too. Depending on the colour of your hair you could match it up with any powder makeup or eyeshadow.
The fourth picture is good old fashioned mascara over the grey. Makes the hair a little stiff but if you lightly brush once dry then that softens it. Ideally I'd be using a brown mascara but i only have a black one πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
The next set of pictures shows my parting with an attempt to show you how to soften a root line. Again, i only had a black mascara but the effect wasn't too bad. I covered over the more obvious grey, then dragged the mascara brush down another couple of inches in some places. I then just rubbed over it with a tissue to smudge it a bit. It wasn't perfect but the root drag certainly made the roots less obvious.

Most importantly, all of this is only temporary. It should completely wash out so don't be scared to try different things.

One day soon, we will all be reunited, and it will be a truly BEAUTIFUL thing πŸ’–β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ€ŽπŸ–€πŸ€ #rootproblems #heretohelp #beathebox #bronzer #mascara #homeremedies

This was sent to us by a lovely client, hopefully it makes you smile as much as we did.

(Ps this talented lady is not our client, the video was forwarded to us, however we are positive our clients are as talented and funny πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)

Hopefully once this storm has calmed, we will all be able to take stock and realise we are stronger than we ever thought. Whether that be managing on our own, homeschooling (or just tolerating) our children, or not committing a spouse related crime.

But honestly, it doesn't feel that way right now. Everyone i have spoken to is finding it hard this week. The novelty of last week has dwindled, as has the 'to do' list and reality has set in that we are in it for the long haul.

With several family members and friends aswell as clients working in the NHS and other key roles keeping our nation running, i struggle with feelings of guilt that i am at home doing nothing. But then, that is what i should be doing. Staying at home.

What has given me immense feelings of pride this week is reports of local essential businesses flourishing, innovation creating breathing aids and getting them into production, over 1 million people volunteering for the nhs, emergency hospitals being created and people printing 3D masks up and down the country to help with the PPE situation to keep our heros safe. β€πŸ’›πŸ’•πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’œπŸ’™

We have been racking our brains to think if there is anyway we can help you all, and whilst we can't be there to help you in person, if you have any hair related questions, need any advice on what to do, what to use or how to manage, just drop us a message and we will do our best to help #stayhome #staysafe #protecttheNHS #thankyouworkers

Hello, hope you are all holding up ok!!

If like me you are giving you hair a break and trying not to wash it as much πŸ€”It occured to me the other day (when i finally washed my hair) that quite a lot of my hair came out. This is perfectly normal and not something you should worry about.
In my case, I don't usually put a brush through my hair from one wash to the next πŸ™ˆ, add in taking it in and out of a bobble, then none of the naturally lost hair can fall away. When i come to wash it, i normally lose a lot. On average, we shed about 50-100 hairs a day, so factor in a few days worth of build up and there can seem like a lot (think of your hoover πŸ™„) Please do not add this to your list of current worries β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ€ŽπŸ–€πŸ€

This is just wonderful!

β€œSocially distant dancing happens every day on our road at 11am during #lockdown. This was day seven. #Covid19 #StayHomeSaveLives https://t.co/yBw2Q230CA”

Good morning! What a beautiful few days we have had so far, long may the sunshine continue!
How are you doing? We hope you are ok.
This week has seen changes that no one past a sci-fi writer could have imagined and it has played merry hell with our state of mind. Usually when you are not in work, you have plans with the family, going places, doing things, catching up with friends. However this is totally different. We aren't on holiday. We have been rushed into self confinement which even the most prepared individual won't have been prepared for. So in these difficult times please don't be hard on yourself.
Don't feel guilty that your lockdown experience isn't facebook friendly
Don't feel guilty that the kids are annoying you
Don't feel guilty they are not doing schoolwork
Don't feel guilty you can't be bothered to clean your windows.
Don't feel guilty that every little thing your other half does annoys you πŸ˜‚
Be kind to yourself.

It doesn't matter if your roots are starting to show. Be creative with how to cover them. If you haven't got a root spray try using mascara, eyeshadow or blusher.

Try not to wash your hair every day. Leave a conditioning mask on your hair if you have one, or just conditioner would do. Then leave your hair to dry naturally. Try putting it in a plait whilst it is still damp for loose waves. Leave off the heated applicances for a while, let your hair recover. Most of all remember, we are all in the same boat! We all have roots (and i can't actually remember when i last washed my hair 😱)

If you are worried about money, take a deep breath and have a think about what you buy. We are all on tight budgets these days but we have realised that a lot of things we spend money on in the average month won't be available to us. So hopefully this might help out in the longer term.

Smile, take a deep breath, enjoy the sunshine and stay inside πŸ˜€πŸŒˆ

We will be clapping for everyone that is still working whilst we are not. Family, friends, clients, their families and all our friends we haven't met yet, we thank you.
We appreciate the sacrifices you are all making for the rest of us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts πŸŒˆβ€πŸ’›πŸ’–πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’œπŸ’™
