Hairstyling and Colouring

At Hairess we assess eye colour, skin tone and face shape to create personalised cut and colour to bring out the best in your features.

Our Cutting and Colouring Services include a sit down consultation with your chosen stylist which you will be with throughout your experience. Our fully qualified hair stylists, who have extensive knowledge in the colouring world will work with you to acheive your desired look.

We use the latest techniques and nothing but the best products to achieve top of the range hair requirements to suit you.

Consultations are free and all clients must have an up to date skin test 48hours prior to any colouring services.

Colour Correction

The information that follows is quite important for any clients considering colour correction, going from light to dark or dark to light on previously coloured hair and the removal of unwanted tones. Colour correction can be a long process and may not give the exact colour desired at the first attempt, this is due to a significant reason. And it is because of this that often 2-3 applications maybe needed to achieve a specific result.We recommend that you have a colouring plan made that will get you to the colour you desire and in the quickest time. We will always advise a home care regime to make sure the strength of the hair rebuilds and that the hair is cut to remove very dry areas after the colour removal.

Wedding/Occasional Hair

Whether it’s yourself getting married, being a bridesmaid, attending your best friends wedding or simply have a special occasion you want to look brilliant for, we’ve got the perfect hairstyles for you – from classic up-dos to Boho down-dos.

We recommend that you have a trial prior to the big day.  This ensures that you can relax knowing that on the day your look will be exactly how you want it to be.  It is important your chosen hair will suit your face shape and allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable on your special day – all these points are fully discussed at the consultation with your Stylist which takes place at your trial appointment.  We encourage you to bring along photos of styles and looks that you like so we can create an individual look for you to ensure that the memories of your special day will last a lifetime!

Wedding/Occasional Makeup

At Hairess we listen to your requirements, discuss your colour scheme and achieve the vision you have for your wedding day/ Special Occasion. Our makeup style is to enhance your natural beauty, making you feel and look radiant for your special day.

Makeup should last all day, through all the crying, hugging, kissing, eating and dancing.  You’ll probably want to get your mascara waterproof, lips to be kiss proof, and your skin makeup to be bombproof.

The wedding day is also special for family and friends, so consider booking make-up appointments for the whole bridal party too, i.e, Bridesmaids, Mother-of-the-Bride, Grooms’ Mum, Grandmothers, or any other female guests requiring make-up, quotations available upon request. Trials also available

We recommend that you have a trial for make-up prior to the big day.  This ensures that you can relax knowing that on the day your look will be exactly how you want it to be.  It is important your chosen make-up will suit your skin colour, face shape and allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable on your special day – all these points are fully discussed at the consultation with your Make-up Artist which takes place at your trial appointment.  We encourage you to bring along photos of styles and looks that you like so we can create an individual look for you to ensure that the memories of your special day will last a lifetime!

Client Testimonials

Our clients recommend use time and time again. Here are a select few.

Kirsty Riding

Absolutely love this place. It’s stunning. Katie’s done a fantastic job. I’ve had Katie as my hair stylist for years, and despite a couple of salon moves, I’ve always gone to where Katie is. So much so. I now drive 16 miles to Hairess. I’ve had my hair styled, restyled, done for events, coloured, bleached, been red, blonde, brown and back again. Katie does a fantastic job and I always get exactly what I went in for, or even better. I can’t recommend Katie or her salon highly enough. If you’re looking for a change, fantastic service, and lots of care and attention. It’s definitely what you’ll get with Katie and her soon to be team at Hairess.

Katie is a brilliant hairdresser – she’s extremely talented and her colouring technique is fantastic. I’ve been having my hair done by Katie for years and love her new salon it’s so glam and welcoming. I’ve had highlights, cuts, re-styles, corrective colour work and all kinds of blow dries and can honestly say I’ve loved every one and always feel brilliant afterwards and gets lots of compliments. I can’t recommend her more highly – thanks Katie you’re fabulous xxx

I have had the pleasure of Katie’s acquaintance for 5 years. My first realisation of her remarkable talent was during the styling of my wedding hair. What an astounding job she did! She made me feel relaxed, calm and at ease and I trusted her judgement entirely (which and I think you’ll agree, is extremely important on such a special day). I couldn’t have asked for a better stylist and for this reason I HIGHLY recommend Katie.
Not only has she helped me overcome my initial fear of hairdressing salons, but I have also gained a beautiful friend in this truly inspiring young business woman.
Congratulations Katie. x x x 5 Star!

Cancellations

If you really can’t make your appointment please try to give us at least 24 hours notice.

Plan

If you’re thinking of going for a new style or colour, feel free to bring photos or references with you. And if you have a preferred stylist and time slot, it’s also a good idea to book your next appointment before you leave the salon.

Skin Test

Being colour experts, we never (ever) colour hair without a skin test at least 48 hours in advance. You’ll need to pop in, but it only takes 2 minutes. We really can’t put colour on your hair without it. If you’re not sure if you’ve had one before, check with your salon.

Consultation

At every appointment, you can expect an in-depth consultation – to ensure your stylist fully understands the look you want, and how to work with your type of hair. From there, you can relax in safe hands.
