The hairdryer game hasn’t changed much in decades. That is, until this September, when Dyson’s new Supersonic hairdryer will be released stateside in Sephora stores. British engineer and designer, Sir James Dyson, who is known for bringing the world highly engineered luxury through unglamorous household appliances, has just announced the release of the Supersonic, marking Dyson’s first foray into the beauty industry.
Back to Nature this Fall at Barron’s London Salon
Did you try a new hair color trend this summer? Swim in a pool or the ocean? How about garden, go to a Braves game or have a mimosa on an outdoor patio? If you answered yes to these wonderful summer activities, or anything else that exposed your hair to the brutal sun, humidity and elements, it’s time to get back to nature with your hair care!
The hot hair ingredient everyone is talking about now is roucou oil. Never heard of it? Well here’s your chance to learn about this fantastic ingredient that does wonders for getting your hair back into shape for fall.
Pronounced ru ˈku, it’s the powerhouse behind the Davines’ Oi products that make your hair insanely vibrant and glossy. Found in the Amazon rainforest, it is derived from the fruit of the achiote, an evergreen shrub sometimes called the lipstick tree because of its pink flowers and spiny red fruit. Roucou oil is harvested from the seeds of the heart-shaped fruit.
Roucou oil stimulates the production of melanin, which is responsible for your hair’s color. Melanin can keep gray hair and frizz at bay. Permanent fix? No, but definitely great for preventative measures!
Roucou oil also contains ellagic acid and 100 times more beta carotene than carrots! This combination helps to neutralizes free radicals and have antioxidant properties that protect against UV radiation. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can directly damage cellular structural membranes, lipids, proteins, and DNA. While our bodies have a natural defense against free radicals, as we age, free radical production increases while our defenses decrease. This can result in graying and/or thinning hair. So…fighting free radicals is of utmost importance to your haircare!
Roucou oil is the key ingredient in Davines’ OI All in One Milk, a multi-tasking leave-in-conditioner that can be used to comb through stubborn tangles, combat frizz, add body, and facilitate styling while protecting against heat and other stressors. It gives your hair a glossy sheen and smells gorgeous, thanks to tea and amber infusions. Roucou oil is also a major player in Davines’ OI Oil, a lightweight tonic that conditions without weighing strands down. In OI Shampoo, the ingredient teams up with rose oil for clean, super-shiny hair, while apricot butter builds on the oil’s moisturizing powers in the OI conditioner.
By popular demand, the signature scent and ingredients have been captured in a new Oi Lotion and Body Balm, yours with a purchase of three hair care products from this amazing line from Davines!

Back To Basics Hair At Barron’s London Salon
Every August we see the beginning of the end of summer. Kids go back to school and routine sets in. That’s why we celebrate August with a Back to Basics approach to hair! Here you will find a refresher course on the basics of hair, and a few specials to help!
How to Shampoo & Condition Your Hair: Has anyone ever told you the proper way to shampoo and condition your hair? The rule of thumb is that you shampoo your scalp and condition your ends. Use only enough shampoo to cover your scalp all over. No extra is needed for the ends! As you rinse your scalp, the shampoo glides through the rest of your hair and cleanses it. Conditioner is the opposite. Apply conditioner from your mid shaft to the ends. Any remaining on your hands can be run through the top. Do not apply extra conditioner to your scalp. This can make hair feel greasy, weighed down or oily. The natural oils from your scalp will take care of the rest.
How to Pick a Brush: Yes, there are a gazillion kinds of brushes in your stylist’s arsenal. Have you ever thought to ask why? Each brush serves a purpose for each clients’ hair. Here is a short breakdown: Round brushes give “round” volume, usually the shorter the hair, the smaller the brush needed. However, smaller brush heads also give more curl and more tension, so check in to see which size your stylist recommends based on how you style your hair. Vent brushes can also add volume, but allow air to pass through when blow drying, so this brush is best suited for a rough air dry effect with a little definition. Same rule applies, the longer the hair, the larger the brush needed. Paddle brushes are great for straight styles and are usually better for hair past the shoulders. Finally, the 7 or 9 row Denman brush. This is great for smooth straight styles as well as styling bangs without getting that 80’s pouf.
How to Pick a Hairspray: While some of you never touch the stuff, for many, hairspray is as basic a hair need as shampoo. We love hairspray and feel a final spritz before you go anywhere is a plus for any hairstyle. How do you choose which one is right for you? The question to ask yourself is how much movement do you like to have in your hair throughout the day? If you want to run your hands through it constantly and feel nothing, then a soft hold spray will control fly away and still feel like air. Most people feel like they want some hold, but still touchable, that is the medium hairspray. If your hair is unruly, stubborn and tends to frizz, then a strong hold is best. Strong hold is also best for special occasion styles when you want a specific style to stay put all night. Still unsure? Let the hair experts at Barron’s London Salon help you decide!

Prep Your Hair for Summer this May at Barron’s London Salon!
This month we are focused on getting your hair ready for summer and all of the things that can wreak havoc on your hair. By adding moisture, strength and smoothness, your hair can make it through the damage caused by heat, sun, chlorine, salt water, etc. relatively unscathed!
Add Moisture: If your hair is dehydrated now, just imagine what it will feel like at the end of those hot summer months! May is the perfect time to rehydrate hair and get it prepped for the sun. We recommend adding an in-salon moisture treatment with a follow up at home with a hydrating mask to help hydrate and retain moisture.
Add Strength: Is your hair weak or already breaking? Add strength now to keep from having super damaged hair at the end of summer. An in-salon strengthening treatment is exactly what your stylist ordered! Adding elasticity and strength to your hair now will help protect it from the elements that weaken hair during the summer months.
Add Smoothness: Already fighting frizz? You know the uphill battle that will become as the weather gets hotter and more humid. Adding keratin will help significantly decrease frizz for the summer! Start with a Vitalshot in May and consider a treatment for longer lasting results.

Spring is all about fresh starts and trying something new! At Barron’s London Salon we encourage you to branch out, spread your wings and dive into something new with your hair! Below are a few suggestions to “spring” you into something new!
• Try a new trend: What is new this spring in the hair world? How about going grey? Yes, women everywhere have been coloring their natural gray to hide it, but today’s trend is to let it shine! But not in the natural sort of let-it-grow-out way, but the dye- me-platinum-with-a-violet-undertone way. Not your cup of tea? No problem…we have a few other options to help you “spring” into something new.
• Try a new product: Whether you switch up your shampoo and conditioner, or add a new root boost or smoothing serum to your hair routine, changing products can be a great thing for spring! At Barron’s London Salon we are launching a new product line, Davines, to help you spring into something new! Our hair professionals can guide you to the best fit for your hair type. Like what you’ve been using? So do we! The other lines we carry still stand strong, but may have some new offerings to try, like Moroccanoil’s Dry Shampoo or Kevin Murphy’s Un.tangled
• Try a new philosophy: Recycle, sustainability, low emissions…whatever you like a little, embrace a lot for a new way to spring into something new. Read more for ways we can help you with this through new biodegradable packaging from Kevin Murphy to the farm to table concept in hair care with Davines.
