I remember 8 years ago there were so many hair salons in York therefore I knew I had to be different to stand out. For years I have been building and developing a 5 star concept which even now is getting better and better all the time. I love looking at the fine detail of what makes someone impressed with a place to go. I recognise these points and try to add them to what we are doing. Im constantly improving every aspect of the business. so by looking back over the years I can see just how far we have come. And you all helped me make that happen. Ross X

 

The best hair salon to go to. The best hair salon. Good hair day. Bad hair day. How to style my hair. I hate my hair and I wish I loved it.

Absolutely Fashion : Inside British Vogue

For a Century, Vogue Magazine has had the world of high fashion all to itself. But in uncertain and changing times, what does the future hold for Britain’s style bible ?

Watch this on iplayer

Also a great clip of Patsy and Edina on their view of the future of Vouge.

Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue review – ridiculous, fascinating and fabulous, of course Documentary-maker Richard Macer spent nine months at the star-studded magazine, which still wasn’t long enough to get a good line out of Kate Moss … says the Guardian 

Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue (BBC Two) was the second half of director Richard Macer’s warts-and-all peek into the rarefied world of British Vogue – where the staff are well-bred blondes, the seats are front row and the skinny lattes are soy. says the Telegraph.

Fashion play such a big part in hair fashion. Its great to con-bind the two. Here at Ross Charles we love to not just follow fashion and treat but be part of its creation. Thus setting us in an other level to offer bespoke forward thinking fashionable hair styles. If you would like to see our collections of hair fashion click here . 

 

 

John Curzon International hair wizard

John Curzon International hair wizard

John Curzon International hair wizard Founder of Merlin Professional haircare will be visiting our salon this week. He will be giving an in-depth hair science lesson to all the staff. We believe it is so important to really understand the material that we are working with being the hair !. To have this knowledge this gives us the possibilities to really treat and repair damaged hair. John has being teaching Ross Charles for the last 23 years most of what he knows in hair science.

Merlin Professional Hair care

We are proud to be stockist of what we believe to be the best hair care product range in the world. The difference it makes to helping people with poor hair condition is unbelievable. Every day we are treating damage mainly made by poor hair care ranges that are on the market today. We are trained to advise our clients for which products to avoid which are on the mass market. We then prescribe the correct ones for the benefit of their hair needs. Targeting the actual damage is key and having the knowledge to fix it is sometimes more powerful than any other hairdressing service. We pride our selves in knowing that we have got much more to give than just a cut or colour. To be able to change the hair so it functions well for the individual clients hair desires.

Treating a models hair

John Curzon International hair wizard will demonstrate some fantastic treatment concoctions tomorrow. Thus giving extra added knowledge to the staff to perform extra special intense treatments for extremely damaged hair.

Ross Charles’s team always look forward to these hair science work shops to really set them selves apart from the rest. Most hairdressers in our industry are not interested in really knowing how to treat hair. They tend to go with the latests fancy packaging or nice smelling product and think that will do the trick, it won’t !. At Ross Charles not only do we love to treat your hair but we also love that our clients question us and let us talk about the science of what we do therefore showing that we actually care and take our clients hair seriously to achieve optimum results.

5 Top Hair-Washing Tips

Best salon York

Best hair salon in York Ross Charles is giving hair tips and advise. Well think that you’ve got your hair-washing technique down pat. After all, you’ve been doing it every other day or so for years and years. Can you really have been doing it wrong all this time? Well, unfortunately, the answer may well be yes. Here at the best salon in York, we often see hair that hasn’t been washed properly – so here are five top tips to help you get it right from the get-go.

Too much shampoo

Lots of you blob that shampoo out and add more until your head is completely covered in bubbles. In actual fact, you only really need a small amount (about the size of a 2p piece) and you can work this into your hair to really get it clean. Do it once, rinse and repeat for the perfect hair wash every time.

Over-conditioning

How much conditioner you use should depend on what kind of hair you have. If it’s really fine, you can get away without using any or just doing the ends, while if it’s thick, using a lot of conditioner will really help. Always make sure that you rinse your hair properly before you condition so the product can really do its job.

Low Ph Shampoo

It it vital that you use a low Ph Shampoo. Yes acidic Shampoo of around 4-5.5 PH is so important (and even lower ph for conditioners/sealers. A higher PH than this will swell and de-keritinise your hair. Infant any thing above 6.9 PH. Many shampoos claim to have a low PH but still function as an alkaline and create damage to your hair.

How can I tell which are bad and good ? its very difficult with out trial and error. Here at Ross Charles we have tried so many products and in our opinion nothing has beaten what we have available in salon and we can also supply to our clients so they can take all these great low PH products home too therefore eliminating the risk of damage to the hair. Click here to view the Merlin Low ph products in our shop.

Scalp yourself

Apply your shampoo to the scalp of your head and avoid piling your hair up to get it covered in product. You’ll end up with lots of knots this way. You can clean the ends by working the shampoo from the top of your head down the strands until it’s all done.

Cold water rinse

You don’t need to do this all the time (and you’ll probably skip it in winter), but rinsing your hair at the end in cold water will help to close the cuticles and keep your hair well moisturised.

Have You Tried Hair Jewellery Yet?

Have You Tried Hair Jewellery Yet?

A great way to give your new hair style a bit of added pizazz is to throw a bit of hair jewellery into the mix, one of the biggest trends we’ve spotted recently here at Ross Charles.

One of the key styles at the moment is big chunky braids (which couldn’t be easier to recreate at home with just a bit of practice) and people all over the place are now accessorising away to their heart’s content with spikes, cuffs, moons, feathers… the list goes on and on.

If you’ve got a boho wedding to go to this year, then beautiful braids adorned with pins, beads, twists and more is an easy way to make yourself stand out from the crowd (but not too much – you don’t want to detract from the bride, after all).

And if you need a bit of inspiration where your braids are concerned, it’s always a good idea to have a look to see what’s going on in celebrity La La Land. Sarah Michelle Gellar always looks great with a plait (start from the crown of your head and keep plaiting so you end up with a side braid), while Hilary Duff rocks a crown braid really well.

If you spend just a few hours over the weekend practising your plait techniques, it’ll be time well spent and the next time you come to do your hair all fancy like for an event or party, you’ll be able to get your braids done in record time.

And if you need any help whatsoever with your do, come and see the best hair salon in York – Ross Charles!

Upgrade Your Braids With Hair Piercing

Upgrade Your Braids With Hair Piercing

Hair is the perfect medium to express your own personality – and we know our clientele in search of the best hair stylist York has to offer often want a look that helps them stand out from the crowd. Of course, hair is only a semi-permanent transformation, meaning you can experiment with it time and time again, unlike body art or piercings.

However, if you love the look of body jewellery but want none of the commitment, this summer’s hair trend might be perfect for you. Hair piercing, as the trend has been dubbed, doesn’t require you to get anything pierced, but works metal jewellery into braids for a variety of looks.

From the pioneers of the trend, we see the look going one of two ways. Having had its roots on the runway for the Spring/Summer 2016 collections last year, it can undoubtedly channel a high fashion look – giving braided hairstyles details which elevate them to the next level. For this look, choose plainer loops and studs, weaving them into messy plaits as you go.

However, for something a bit more fun, the hair piercing trends has the ability to embrace the 90s trend that’s hit the festival circuit in a big way this year. Spearheaded by the beauty bloggers, these looks see cute, novelty hoops interwoven in more intricate braids, and could even be finished with a touch of spray glitter for the full 1990s teenager effect.
