Power Hair Cut 2021

Strength and resilience is so often shown through hair. Power hairstyles have been created through the centuries, for example the Victory Roll post World War Two. Neville Salon predict the return of the Chanel power Cut. An investment cut that shouts 'we will not be thwarted post pandemic.’

Elena Lavagni, Director of Neville says, 'Coco Chanel once said post World War 1.‘ The first world war made me, I woke up in 1919 famous’. Already the phone is off the hook at Neville Salon since yesterday’s announcement. We all deserve to look and feel fabulous after this tricky year and at Neville that is what we are all about - spoiling our clients.’

Whether you're looking for something soft and short, a choppy Pixie crop or just lifting your bob a few inches to lobe-length, lopping the lot away can feel utterly liberating – like shaking off the weight of a heavy year (we're speaking about you, 2020). This cut is everything that represents a strong spirit in a woman. The jaw defined by the chin length hair with a very blunt fringe. Super sophisticated and classy.

Both long-term converts and new-comers can benefit from something more drastic, since short cuts are as versatile as they are easy to maintain. Plus, they're easier to pull off than you'd think, once you find the right shape for you... In fact, there's nothing like pruning back layers of hair to help open up your face and make the most of your features – hello there, cheekbones.

Ahead of the hairdressers reopening, it's well worth considering all your options and getting an idea of the type of crop that could work for you. You could dip your toe in with a slightly longer length chop – like a lob, or the short (but not too-short) collar bone bob.

If you want to take it up a notch, you could take the French bob we've been eyeing up all summer for a spin. It's short, it's flirty and oozes serious style and says ‘I've invested in my hair’. What is sure is that this power cut has resurrected itself post pandemic.

Neville scalp facial

Neville Scalp Facial

During this very stressful unprecedented time, people are seeing physical effects of their stress and angst. These physical effects can include irritable skin such as eczema and psoriasis and temporary hair loss also known astelogen effluvium. Unfortunately, there is no way to stop an episode of telogen effluvium, but we can help to prevent it by keeping a healthy clean and cared for scalp. Hair is made up of primarily protein (keratin), so it’s no surprise that sufficient protein is vital to maintain and grow hair. Also, be sure to avoid very tight hairstyles, excessive heat styling, or chemical-based treatments, as these can contribute to hair loss and irritable scalp.

It is very important to keep the scalp clean and purified from the pollution and build up from products - this could create scalp inflammation and scalp problems. We have just re-launched the scalp facial at Neville Hair & Beauty which can help cleanse the scalp like you would your skin in a facial. It is important to treat your scalp like you would any other part of your body - keep it clean and hydrated.

It is vital that you steer away from dry shampoo - it is the biggest enemy for your scalp unless you have regular scalp facials. Dry shampoo creates a build up on your scalp and can be difficult to remove with an at home shampoo. This in turn can create a film which could give you oily hair and blocked follicles.

The secret to a long lasting blowdry and style is a clean scalp. A clean scalp keeps the hair follicles cleaner for longer, and in good health.

What is Neville Hair & Beauty doing to help combat this?

The Scalp Facial is a newly revisited treatment that targets the health of the scalp.

The quest for healthy, full, shiny hair begins with a healthy scalp. If you think how dirty your body gets after a day, then imagine what your hair and scalp contend with… hands, sweat, the back of bus and Tube seats and environmental pollution. In the same way that using the right skin care can help our skin to look healthier and younger, using regular scalp masks to exfoliate and stimulate can help promote a healthy scalp and hair.

When it comes to this extra dose of TLC, it is Neville’s view that Londoners are the most in need. “One of the main factors that affect the condition of the scalp is stress, which is particularly common with Londoners who have highly pressurised jobs, as it can stimulate more androgens, the male hormones that can be responsible for hair thinning, and it can also exacerbate dandruff. As our hair is made of the protein keratin, a poor diet can also contribute to the cause of hair loss. With Londoners working longer hours, people are often tempted to eat takeaways or ready meals, which aren’t rich in the nutrients our bodies need.” comments Elena Lavagni, owner of Neville Hair and Beauty, which has tended to the attention-starved follicles of many celebrities and aristocrats in its 30 years.

They begin by brushing hair from roots to tips to shift the natural oils from the scalp through to the ends, a manual exfoliation. They then slather the head with a chosen organic oil, be it bergamot, rosemary or eucalyptus to cleanse and rejuvenate. A head tingling shiatsu massage is carried out then your hair is popped in for a15-minute steam.

 The scalp is rinsed with a tonic and then hair receives the famous Neville Blow Dry.

This follicle refreshment takes an hour and will give lifeless hair, itchy scalp a whole new life.

£120 including a blowdry.

Redken X BTC Competition

Throughout the month of September Redken hosted a UK Instagram competition with the infamous Behind The Chair social account inviting colourists around the country to share the very best of their colour transformations using the #redkenxbtc.

Seniz Alkan – Colour Director, who began her career 18 years ago when she started working a Neville Hair & Beauty is a huge fan of the Redken products and jumped at the opportunity to enter the competition.

Having trained as a colourist at the salon and having since worked her way up to Colour Director at the salon, Seniz’s experience has enabled her to develop many colour techniques influenced by her work travels around the globe.

Seniz never stops learning and developing colour trends, and she regularly travels to Los Angeles where she has visited top salons including John Barrett, Tracy Cunningham and Ramirez Tran where she met top colourist to the stars Anja Burton 8 years ago.

Anja and Seniz have since worked together on creating a new variation to the classic Ombre/ Balyage, the Ombralayage, which is exclusive to Neville Hair & Beauty.

Ever the innovator, Seniz, who practices from her own ‘Colour Pod’ at the salon, has created trend after trend seen on the likes of London’s top press, including her new Silhouette Slicing technique she pioneered Spring 2020.

It was in her new Pod that Seniz bleached her client Bria's hair to platinum blonde. A winning look according to Redken and Behind The Chair who awarded Seniz with second place.

Alkan says; "Bria has very fine and brittle Afro Caribbean hair but she was keen to undergo a drastic colour transformation. After our initial consultation we agreed that a platinum blonde would be the ultimate colour for her. To achieve this colour, I used Flashlift with Bonder + 20 Vol to enable me to leave the bleach on as long as I could without compromising the condition of her hair. This mixture meant I was able to lift all the undertones and unwanted colour and achieve the brightness necessary for a platinum blonde. We then proceeded to tone with 9B + 9V + 9P in equal amounts leaving the toner on for 15 minutes on dry hair. It’s important the toner is applied on dry hair for maximum absorption."

Introducing Hair Growth Mesotherapy

Neville-mesotherapy-renee-lapino-clinic

The Renée Lapino Clinic present their latest post-lockdown treatment: Hair Growth Mesotherapy.

You're already stressed out of your mind due to what feels like the actual apocalypse, but Hair loss seems to be on the increase perhaps due to all these recent stresses and a knock-on effect if you have suffered from Covid. At Neville’s we have witnessed a surge with more and more clients complaining of clumps of hair falling out on a daily basis.

With our clients at the forefront of everything we do, Leading London skincare specialist Renee Lapino who now heads up the beauty floor within the salon has launched her Hair Growth Mesotherapy.

Renee Lapino has a regenerative hair treatment that is completely painless and uses a mesotherapy pen to inject hair growth serum into the scalp all without needles: just air pressure. The serum is an advanced formula containing amino acids, vitamins and minerals that “awaken” dormant hair follicles, stimulating a reaction that includes new baby hair growth as well as the thickening of the hair at the scalp.

After injection, the treatment concludes with a 10-minute Champissage, or better known as an Indian head massage, to increase blood flow and stimulation to the scalp, boosting the hair renewal rate.

There is no downtime, and this treatment takes 30 minutes. The recommendation is 3-6 treatments and results will develop over 8-16 weeks.

Before and after treatment

Introducing Silhouette Slicing

The Silhouette Slicing Technique by Top Colour Director Seniz.

Put down the make-up brushes now, there’s a new form of contouring in hand that’s gone to the head. The Silhouette Slicing Technique by Top Colour Director Seniz.

The technique comes down to total talent and an artistic eye – it’s about shadow placement and a clever use of light and dark tones that throw shadow and light onto her clients face in just the right places. The look isn’t just for models, there’s a colour contouring prescription for everyone, whether applied to highlight a specific area or blended to create a more uniform impression of lightness and depth.

Seniz explains, “ It’s my job to tailor every detail to your unique hair type and natural colour, facial features, skin tone, makeup, clothing and lifestyle."

Silhouette Slicing is a contouring colouring technique that takes into consideration your individual face shape (long, round or square) using a combination of foil highlights placed in an upside triangle with the positioning of different tones and depths to create shadows.

For example, Heart Shaped Faces - “Lighter pieces are woven around the jawline and ears to soften the bottom half of the face. By mixing fine, light tones with depth at the roots, the face takes on a slightly more oval shape.”

Once the contouring around the face is done, Seniz applies foils on the crown to connect the colour of the upside-down triangle with the ends. This creates a colour balance between roots and end. In this case less is always more. The service takes 45 minutes to apply.

The idea behind this service is to enable clients to go blonder without compromising the health of their hair. Bye bye backcombing.

The contour and connection service means that your hair looks blonder, the service is low maintenance and there will be no division of colour when you tie your hair up.

This service is suitable for women who wear their hair wavy. It is not suitable for straight limp hair.

As for achieving a harmonious colour match for your skin tone, put your faith in Seniz and her knowledge on the Redken Flashlift collection.

Seniz goes onto explain, "Everything can be divided into either a ‘cool’ or ‘warm’ spectrum. Cool indicates blue undertones and warm will have intrinsic yellow, so it’s important to identify the correct shade of blonde, red or brunette that will suit your colouring, both in terms of tone and depth. As hairdressers we can create the right colour shade and depth that will ultimately flatter and enhance a client’s beauty, making them look youthful and healthy whether they are wearing makeup or not.”

Silhouette Slicing not only gives you the hair colour that is made specifically for you it will instantly boost your complexion.

Introducing Holiday Hair

The new summer colours inspired by our favourite destinations

Top Colour Director, Seniz Aklan whose colour skills are called upon internationally and with the starlets of London, celebrates her new colour pod at Neville Salon. A safe sleek hub honouring her creative colour techniques that has her truly in demand.

Celebrating this, she launches Holiday Hair, by literally bringing the holiday to your hair. If you can’t or don’t feel like going abroad this summer, don’t worry. With the launch of her 4 top beach destination colours you can look like you’ve been on holiday with sun kissed, glowing and healthy locks.

You can choose to dip your hair into the following hues: Ibiza Golden Hour, Capri Cioccolato, Cote D’Azur Riviera Waves and Corsican Rosa. With Seniz’s artistic approach to colour and her creative colour placement your hair naturally dazzles in natural light. Her holistic technique means hair is nourished during your colour, so hair shimmers with hydration.

Lisa Snowden is a huge fan of the Capri Cioccolato whilst Jaqueline Jossa has dipped her locks recently into the Riviera Waves.

Capri Cioccolato picks up on the idyllic Italy. Rich in colours and texture with a fresh zesty feel a nod to the lemon groves scattered along the coast line. Seniz manages to mix chocolate browns with fresh lemon. This is a canny mix of 1/3 highlight and 2/3 lowlight – The placement depends on the haircut and style and how the hair is worn on a day to day basis.

Ibiza Golden Hour pays homage to the heavenly balmy golden rays towards the end of your beach day. Where the tunes begin to kick in but there is more relaxing to be done. Golden honey hair is what Seniz has created. Ibiza Golden waves is a beautiful blended ombré with a hairvenly honey base to achieve a new look. Ombré is achieved by backcombing the hair – Roots remain untouched – Low maintenance look

Cote D’Azur Riviera Waves creates a movement of waves in the hair with her clever colour placement. Seniz darkens the roots to give more body to flat limp hair and then the art is in her hand painting dimensions into the lengths of the hair using hair thumb and index.

Corsican Rosa - The softest pink with an undertow of butter yellow. Seniz goes to work on the lower base with bleach in foil mixed with hydrating Olaplex applied to mid lengths and ends depending on the quality of your roots. This is followed by root bleach and a deep hydrating olaplex treatment all over for added shine . The application on mid lengths and ends were applied in slices for even colour distribution.

If you can’t face the flying this year don’t worry you can still look hairvenly.
