Charley was dying to look like Marilyn Monroe!

A year of constant bleaching at a local salon left Charley Toulan with pieces of hair that were breaking off and with hair that was only 2cm long in some places. As a professional Marilyn Monroe impersonator, Charley’s crowning glory was not only vital for her self-confidence but also for her work. Now, thanks to discovering Salon Ten, the 27-year-old Marilyn Monroe look-a-like, who lives partly in Telford, is back as a confident blonde bombshell; recreating the iconic Marilyn look across...

A Skincare Routine and Journey by Guest Blogger Zoe Marcar

As some of you may or may not know, I have struggled with my skin for quite some time. If you have the same issue then you will know how much it can affect your confidence. When I was younger, I was always told 'It's just your hormones! As you get older it will go away'. Now that may be true, but I am now at the age of 18 and it is still a battle. I have been suffering...

Coping with hair loss from cancer treatment

A diagnosis of cancer brings with it a whole host of difficult emotions for a patient and their family. Losing your hair can be one of the distressing challenges faced by many on their already arduous journey through treatment.

I remember taking a shower one day...

Case Study: Boost self-esteem with Great Lengths hair extensions

Senior Stylist Jack Trafene was on hand to offer his reassurance and expertise. Between them they embarked on a long-term plan to make-over Karen’s lacklustre locks. Over time, the pair have transformed Karen’s crowning glory into a luscious wavy brunette...

Make time for a massage!

‘I’m just too busy; I can’t spare the time for a massage.’ It’s something we hear a lot, both in and outside of the salon. Many people are under the misapprehension that an hour of pampering is an hour that’s somehow ‘wasted’, an extra 60 minutes that could be spent staring at a computer screen or checking emails. Yet it’s often the busiest people who could benefit most from a massage. Taking one hour – or even just half an...

Your health and beauty is written all over your face!

The British weather spells doom and gloom for your skin. One minute you’re being lashed by gale force winds, the next it’s raining, hailing or sunny.

With little more than a SPF moisturiser for protection, your face deals with inclement conditions on the outside, followed by the drying effects of central heating...

Colours to dye for!

Just like your wardrobe or make-up, your hair colour can often benefit from a seasonal transformation to complement changing skin tone and complexion. Also, a new look cannot fail to lift your mood for winter. You only need to shift your colour by a couple of shades to give it that warmer feel. Sun-kissed bleach blonde streaks don’t have the same natural look against washed out skin in November as they do in August. So, it’s time for a hair...

Facing up to winter

The sun kissed glow of summer is fading, replaced instead by the rosy cheeks of winter. Facing the elements unprotected, our skin has to deal with both the drying affects of central heating and of the biting frosty winds. Cold weather and low humidity takes moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and vulnerable to cracking and bleeding. Add to that, the fact that we’re less likely to be exercising as much, may be eating less nutrient-rich salads, and are...
