Here are some of our favourite ideas for inspiration for your post-lockdown locks…

Fringes & Layers

A quick and easy way to freshen up your hairstyle is by adding a fringe.  We can create all sorts of different fringes and can recommend the best fringe for your face shape.   Taylor Swift looks great with this fringe  – adding some tousled waves for a change from her usual slick and straight hairstyle.

Her choppy layered style is a great way to add texture, volume and depth to your hair with echoes of a 70s shag haircut.  It’s a super-easy, low maintenance style that shouts of effortless chic.  It compliments most face shapes and works well on long hair, curly hair and even shorter cuts.

The French Girl Bob

The classic bob is a hairstyle that we never tire of.   The French Girl version takes inspiration from our chic neighbours across the channel.  It’s blunt cut at chin level and has a fringe sitting just at the brow line.  It’s a perfect look for anyone who wants low-maintenance styling coupled with a structured shape – it actually looks better air dried with a bit of scrunching!

Fun Hair Colours

It fair to say we could all do with a bit more fun after the last year or so!  One way to bring a little sunshine into your life – and turn a few heads – is to have a fun fashion hair colour! 

You can achieve this look in lockdown with one of our NEW Moroccanoil Colour Deposting Masks – available for home delivery if you live within 3 miles of the salon!

Short Edgy Hairstyles

We saw the trend for shorter hairstyles developing in 2020, with many clients fed up with their lockdown locks swapping them for a chic cropped style.  

This fashion looks set to continue into 2021 as we embrace shorter, more manageable hairstyles.   If you are looking for a style transformation, we can find a short look that’s flattering and easy to wear.  Your Blakes stylist will show you how to style your new shorter look and recommend products to keep it looking its best.

Side Swept Hair Styles

Seen on many Hollywood A-Listers recently, side-swept looks with long fringes look set to return in 2021.  They’re wavier this time round and can be styled to look sleek or relaxed, depending on your style.  

We know it’s tempting during lockdown, but we’d recommend that you don’t try cutting in a fringe for yourself!  Wait for your Blakes stylist who will make ensure your bangs are blended in with your overall cut and come up with the most flattering style for your particular face shape.
