How do you straighten your hair?

Should you straighten your hair with straighteners or a blow-dryer?

By | Hair Styles, Hair Tips | No Comments

We all use heat to style our hair. It helps us achieve volume, shape and a silky-smooth finish. But we know that heat can cause damage, dryness and breakage, if not used correctly. So, if you have wavy or curly hair that you like to wear straight, or you sometimes need to tidy up your hair after sleeping on it or getting caught in the rain, then how can you keep it looking straight and glossy without the damage? You may be tempted to opt for straighteners as they are quick and easy to use, but, here at the House of Klamer, we prefer our clients to use a blow-dryer. Here are some tips to help you straighten your hair and keep it healthy. Read More

Adding volume to fine hair in Beaconsfield

Three quick ways to add volume to fine hair

By | Hair Styles, Hair Tips | No Comments

Do you look at people with bouncy, luscious locks and wish that yours looked the same? If you have fine hair, you’ll probably have experienced the hardship of trying to achieve any sort of volume. More often than not, the usual volumising tricks don’t work on us fine-haired folk – holding volume in place with hairspray just makes the strands go crispy and look greasy, while backcombing from the roots can result in the dreaded dragged-through-a-hedge-backwards look! We know that fine hair can be frustrating, but, with our three quick tips, you’ll be able to achieve gorgeous, volumised hair in seconds – perfect for a quick fix before a night out with the girls, or to add a spring to your step before an important day at work.

How often do you wash your hair?

How often should you wash your hair?

By | Hair Colouring, Hair Tips | No Comments

We all know someone who has perfectly glossy, clean hair that falls lusciously onto their shoulders, but who, when asked how often they wash their hair, says ‘Oh, about once a week’. ‘How can that be so?’ we ponder, as we think about how greasy our hair gets after just one day of not being washed. The truth is that there really is no golden rule about how often you should lather up: it fully depends on your own hair, and what products you use on it. So, with that in mind, here are a few tips on knowing how long to go between washes. Read More

Are you ready for the modern mullet?

Rocking the modern mullet

By | Hair Styles, Latest News | No Comments

The mullet’s history is one of highs and lows – from its heyday in the glam rock era of the 70s, with Ziggy Stardust’s fiery red locks, to its decline in the late 90s, when it became a widely mocked hairstyle. John Travolta, the Beastie Boys, Florence Henderson, Jean-Claude van Damme, Bono and Paul McCartney: they have all sported a mullet at some point in their careers, most of which are now looked back on as pretty bad hair choices. But all is not lost for the mullet. Far from it, in fact, as the much-criticised haircut is making a comeback! Yes, really. Here is everything you need to know about the so-called MoMu (modern mullet). Read More

Perfecting the lob hairstyle in Beaconsfield

Perfecting the ‘lob’ for an effortlessly cool look

By | Hair Styles, Hair Tips | No Comments

If you’ve not heard of a ‘lob’ before, it is essentially a long bob. In fact, it’s kind of the cooler older sister of the bob, as you can pretty much let it do its own thing. The beauty of a lob is that it loves being messed up with some styling mousse and pulled to the side for an effortless, tousled effect, or having definition added with gorgeous highlights or balayage.

It can also be parted in the middle and textured with gentle waves, or just worn straight. Basically, however you style your lob, it looks cool. In the past year or so, A-listers like Cate Blanchett, Rachel McAdams, Kate Mara and Cara Delevingne have all perfected the look. Read More
