Prep Your Hair For Summer This May At Barron’s London Salon


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” into March’s Monthly Specials!

Believe it or not, spring is almost here! With warmer weather ahead, now is a great time to think about prepping your hair for the humid conditions that lie ahead.

*Beat the heat: With the heat running all winter long, your hair and skin can become extremely dry. Adding moisture now will help to condition your hair to avoid frizz and fly aways in the coming months. Products like Kevin Murphy’s Young Again Treatment line help to repair hair from the inside and coat the hair with protective lipids on the outside. The result is healthy hair with a smooth finish. A great way to prep hair for spring!

2015 March Blog 2 Cropped*Be the “early bird”: For the overachievers out there, a Keratin Blowout Treatment is a perfect transition from winter to spring. A Keratin Blowout lasts around 8 weeks, so repairing damage and controlling frizz now preps hair for a full Keratin Treatment when the time is right. This regimen should get you through the spring and summer with hair you will love!

*Fake it: If winter has left your hair a lost cause (for now), we can add hair extensions for length or volume! Easy fixes like Double Hair and System Volume hair extensions by Balmain are great options for easy maintenance and a beautiful look while you work on repairing and growing your own hair. Getting hair extensions now gives you plenty of time to learn how to care for them before the season begins in full swing.
