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

Karen was feeling pretty desperate when she first visited Salon Ten back in September 2015. She had always had fine hair, but years of bleached blonde highlights and some unsuitable tape-in hair extensions had left her natural hair looking thin. 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.

Spring has finally sprung. The buds are appearing and it’s finally time for you to cast off your woolly hat and reveal your, once, luscious locks! However, if the winter months have wreaked havoc on your hair and your mane has lost its sheen and become a dull, frizzy and lifeless mop, now is the time for a style SOS! Christmas and New Year celebrations involved primping and preening into party styles that took straightening, curling and blow-drying to a whole new level and then, when that torture was finished, your ‘barnet’ was subjected to the effects of damp weather and dry central...

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 colour rethink. Autumn is the ideal time to bring some extra warmth and colour to your hair, whether with an...
