The One to One Consultation
Each new client at Elements, Bishop’s Stortford goes through an initial informal one to one consultation which works two fold. Firstly this informal chat allows you to establish the relationship with your new hairdresser (after all there is a huge element of trust required when placing your hair into the hands of a new stylist!). Secondly it allows your stylist to get to know a little about your personality, your current home haircare routine and your wishes, desires and any styles you’ve got your eye on that you would like to recreate.
Over time as your relationship with your hairdresser evolves you will find that they will assist you in creating hair cuts, hair styles and hair colours that they feel would not only suit you and your features, but most importantly, your personality.
Short Hair Cuts
Short hair cuts really make a statement. From pixie crops to bob, chops and graduated bobs a short hairstyle is one which will require some extra TLC. Think carefully about this hair length if you’re a busy bee who won’t have time for regular maintenance appointments using precision cutting techniques. In order to keep short hair cuts and short hairstyles looking as fresh as the day you left the salon, regular trims every 6 weeks will ensure your new short hairstyle is in optimum condition.
Make a dramatic statement with a short hair cut and emphasise your natural features with this shorter hair length and hairstyle.
Mid Length Hair Cuts
Easily the most versatile hair length, these mid length cuts from nape to shoulders can be worn up or down and styled in a variety of ways to achieve a desired look. Layers, fringes and an abundance of hair colouring techniques including highlights work really well with this hair length. Mid length hair is perfect for girls on the go who want a fuss free hair length that allows them to morph easily from work to play without too much time and hassle styling hair.
For time efficient hair styling, the mid length hair cut could be the answer to those wanting a fuss free hairstyle.
Long Hair Cuts
A little more high maintenance, especially when it comes to styling time (especially if your hair is wavy or frizzy) the long hair cut oozes instant femininity. With a myriad of styling options available at your fingertips with long hair, you can curl, braid, blow dry, straighten and smooth for many different looks and hair styles. Long hair does often need TLC in the form of regular trims to keep split ends at bay every 6-8 weeks and some people with long hair benefit from deep conditioning treatments to nourish the hair, particularly the ends of the long hair.
Fringes are arguably the most striking, instant way to make a hair statement. Fringes however, don’t suit everyone. Depending on your face shape, fringes can provide ingenious ways to hide or balance certain features like a long fringe to hide a long forehead, or a fringe with graduated longer layers at the side to create balance and draw the eye upwards on a heart shaped face. Whether you choose a micro fringe, blunt fringe or side swept sweeping fringe, make sure you maintain the condition of the fringe with regular appointments to trim and tidy.
