The past few years have seen short haircuts take the celebrity world by storm. From Carey Mulligan, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone to Bella Hadid, Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence, some of our favourite stars have rocked the bob. Whether it’s ruffled for an effortless just-out-of-bed look, or sleek, straight and sexy, we just keep coming back to this timeless classic. So, this got us thinking: why exactly do we love the bob haircut so much? Read More
It’s daring, bold and takes a long time to grow back if you don’t like it. The buzz cut was probably one of the hottest looks on the red carpet this year. It’s not for everyone, but for those who attempt it the results can be truly stunning! As it removes all framing for your face, it can be beautifully complementary for people with strong jawlines and big eyes. With smoky eyes and a slick of lipstick, this is one sensational look for you to steal from the stars.
So, who’s caught our eye with their blonde buzz cut? Here are just a few of our favourites. Read More
When you walk down the haircare aisle in your local cosmetics shop, it can sometimes seem like there is an endless array of products available, each of which claims to be essential for beautifully styled and healthy hair. While a well-stocked bathroom with the latest haircare products is great, it is important to have the basics in place first. With this in mind, we have come up with the five items that are essential to strong, healthy and beautifully glossy hair.
Shampoo that suits your hair type
Many consumers see shampoo as one of the most basic items in a daily haircare routine. But if not used properly it can actually be a big cause of damage. That’s why it is important that you find a shampoo that’s suited to your hair type (fine, thick, greasy, dry, etc.) and that you follow advice on how often you should be washing it. Your hair will not necessarily need to be washed every day – sometimes a soap-free rinse or a touch of conditioner is enough. Read More
We’re not ready to leave the colours and sparkles of festival season behind us just yet, so, instead, we’re going to keep talking about cute, quirky festival hairstyles that continue to make us smile. We’ve already blogged about mermaid hair, and now we want to chat about a hairstyle that we think is truly magical and utterly inspired – hidden rainbow hair. Pics of the ‘plain on top but fairylike underneath’ style were all over our Instagram last year, and we’re still obsessed with it. Vibrant rainbow colours are applied to layers of hair that are usually hidden when the hair is worn down, so that, when you have work or need to keep the colours hidden, your hair looks its normal colour. Then you tie it up and it’s party time! Read More
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
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.

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
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
