*****
I recently purchased the Elchim 3900 and I am so impressed! I’ll start by saying how light it is, you barely notice it in your hand, because of this it’s a lot more comfortable. It’s very powerful and is fantastic for smoothing hair and the shine is incredible. The built in silencer is great too, great buy!

Beginner's Guide To Nail Art - Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Beginner's Guide To Nail Art

Nail art is bigger than ever before, the internet is awash with fresh designs, new looks and stunning ideas. Why not get involved? Read this post for some great tips on getting your nail art looking tip top.

1) Walk don’t run

Remember, everyone has to start somewhere. Keep things simple to start with. Use simple designs such as polka dots, tips and leopard prints, then, when you have mastered them move on to more complex designs.

2) Work towards a design

Before you start it’s a good idea to make a mock sketch of what you want your final design to look like. As well as clarifying your ideas, this sketch will allow you to work out what colours/polishes you need as well as being a good point of reference while you make your beautiful creations come to life.

3) Applying polish

Place polish on a piece of scrap paper, take your dotting tool (if you don’t have one use the end of a bobby pin) to dip into your polish before applying to the nail (see pictures below). Make sure you use more polish than you anticipate necessary as if you allow the polish to thicken it can often result in stringing.

4) Mistakes don’t matter

Messing up doesn’t mean you have to start again. Let’s face it, you will mess up at some point so make it work for you. Maybe the odd stripe won’t look right or you accidentally put a spot on your nails, rather than start again, just amend as you go. As the picture below shows, you are better turning a mess into a success than giving up.

5) Keep your designs looking the business

It’s important to get good quality black or white polish as these are two important colours in nail art. Also, make sure that when finishing your design you clean up the edges and cuticles. It is important to keep these areas polish free, after all, you want your designs to be the main focus, not the edges. Finally, it is essential you taking care when ‘locking in’ your work. To do this well, make sure you have your nails at least 60% dry before applying a top coat so you don’t ‘drag’ the polish. Normally, 35-45 minutes is enough to let your nails go completely dry.

So, now you have read this guide. What are you waiting for? Get out there and start making your own nail creations.

How to Choose the Right Straighteners! - Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Tips on choosing straighteners that will last!

 

 

Let’s face it; straighteners aren’t the cheapest part of your hair care artillery! That’s why it’s time to buy a new set of straighteners; you want to make sure you make the right decision. No fear though, we’re here to give you a professional guide to getting your new styler!

Get the right straightener for your hair!

When buying straighteners people often overlook that your hair type should dictate what sort of straighteners you should get. If you have hair that is either long, course or thick you should go for a straightener with larger and wider plates such as the Diva Feel the Heat Wide Argan Styler! Alternatively, if you have shorter hair you might be better suited to a thinner straightener such as Babyliss Ultra Thin Styler when perfecting your crop or fringe.

Product Functions!

If you are anything like us, things can slip your mind from time to time! That is why it can often be a good idea to buy a straightener such as the Corioliss C2 that has a sleep mode. This means the straighteners switch off themselves off if unused for 30 minutes making “Oh no! I’ve left my straighteners on” moment a thing of the past.

Fashion and Hair Trends!

You don’t want to be limited to the styles you can create, so, in order to have a wealth of styles at your fingertips we recommend choosing a styler with a rounder barrel so you can flick, curl and wave to achieve the perfect look!

2012's Autumn/Winter Hair Trends - Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Here at Salon Secrets we have been scouring the catwalks for the latest hair trends so you don't have to. Usually what is big in catwalk season sets the trend for Autumn/Winter. So with this in mind, what looks will be big for the rest of 2012?

BALLERINA BUNS

If you need a maintainable look for your busy lifestyle, luckily for you the ballerina bun is in. The simple, neat and pretty look was seen throughout the works of Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney and Diane von Furstenberg.

DIP-DYED HAIR 

Whereas pastel hair was the big thing in 2011, it seems this year designers are more interested in dip dye with pretty much every colour combination you could imagine featuring on the cat walks. Notable dip dye looks came from Prada, Pringle and Jean Paul Gaultier.

NATURAL

Want to look on trend and still have that extra 15 minutes in bed? Well, it will come as a relief that throughout the Balmain, Burberry and Isabel Marant collections, natural-looking, beautiful hair was in with its no-nonsense appeal..

PLAITS, BRAIDS AND TWISTS 

Plaits, braids and twists are everywhere right now and don’t look like they will be a flash in the pan. Marc Jacobs collection saw a heavy focus on buns, Pre-Raphaelite twists were the name of the game at Gucci whilst Fendi and Mark Fast went for a more urban take on the trend by having their plaits trail over the models shoulders.

FRINGES

Heavy fringes are back. At least that is if we trust the fashion sense of the likes of Versace and Antonio Beradi, which of course we do, so expect to see a lot of fringes throughout winter 2012.
