A visit to the local hairdressing salon or barber shop used to mean coffee or tea and a magazine, getting your hair done was seen as just another thing on the To Do list. Today however, getting your hair cut, coloured, or styled is seen as an essential self-care ritual, a chance to escape the stresses of day-to-day life and be pampered for an hour or two.


In response to this hair salons have had to reposition themselves as a place to go to be spoiled and pampered so that you look and feel amazing. Successful salons now offer an all-round service experience to their clients, young and old.


We’ve put together some examples of the additional services offered by salons that are keeping their customers happy and coming back for more. Competition can be fierce so standing out from the crowd is crucial.

We're all familiar with the famous ‘Twiggy eye’ (see our post on Paris Fashion Week if you're not). We're also all familiar with what a ‘smokey eye’ is. But have you ever considered putting the two together to create your very own Twiggy eye with a twist? Well, now’s your chance!


We've put together a make-up tutorial for those nights when you just really want to stand out from the crowd. The look resembles a 60s Twiggy-esque design with a modern edge. But be warned, to get the look you'll need two things: patience and a steady hand.  So if you have neither, grab yourself a friend that does and ask them kindly to practise their impressive beauty skills on you.

Ordered the full set of 4 as my hair is layered with a fringe and like to use different size brushes for a good finish. I had just bought the Moroccan oil boar bristle brush at £45 for one and it is good but these are much better for my hair as they straighten and smooth really well,also cut my drying time down as a couple of passes and my hair is glossy and straight. Excellent value as only cost £24.00 plus P&P for all 4. Oh! And my hairdresser used them on me and she said she loves these brushes and she works for Trevor Sorbie so has access to the best brushes. I will order another set soon to keep in store in case they stop selling these. I am so glad I have found Coolblades website. Your prices are great and you offer a good range of hair tools.
