- We recognise that every client is uniqueand therefore no two haircuts will ever be the same on two different people.
- Our team at our Durham hair salon is constantly developing new skills and techniques in hair cutting and styling.
The basis of great hair cuts
Our hair stylists will use a combination of techniques and tools when cutting your hair. However before they can do this they need to consider a number of factors that will help them to give you the perfect hair cut.
Factors such as your head shape, face shape and facial balance need to be considered before any cutting takes place. For example, bang fringes are used if the forehead is too large – the fringe gives the illusion of a smaller forehead.
Hairdressing tools such as scissors, razors and clippers may be used depending on what hair cut and style that you choose creating effects including:
Movement – swept sleek, wavy or structured
Texture – sharp, wispy, smooth or blunt
Volume – density and hair body
Choosing a hair style that suits you
The 21st century now allows you to be daring, adventurous and different. Fashions have greatly changed in the 2000’s. Prior to this, having a hair cut and style was about following the rules and wearing it because it was considered ‘in’.
Nowadays, you can have what you like and can even set your own hair style and fashions without having to follow the crowd!
Our hair experts will work with you to access your face shape, facial features and how long you have at home to style and look after your hair before deciding on hair cuts and styles suitable for you.
