However, there are certain shampoos and conditioners that when used properly, can help bring your hair back to life. The Insight Damaged Hair Restructurizing Shampoo and Conditioner can restore the shine and vitality through its specific formula creating with nourishing active ingredients with smooth the hair fibre that intensifies its brightness, whilst the conditioner is rich in vitamins and fatty acids that envelope the hair fibres and protect the hair. 

Add a Mask to Your Routine 

Although protective shampoo and conditioners are a must, adding a mask to your hair routine can really help with the battle to correct damaged hair.

We recommend the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which help to restore moisture and can bring your damaged hair back to life.

Use Protective Styling Tools 

We all know that the overuse of heating tools like tongs, blow dryers, and straighteners can damage your hair, but you don’t have to ditch the dryer in pursuit of a healthier hair. The Babyliss Keratin Lustre Dryer is designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of dryer heat – the key being its keratin-infused ceramic, which fills in the gaps in each hair shaft, making your hair smoother, sleeker, and easier to style.

The Best Products to Help Style Shorter Hair 


The Best Products to Help Style Shorter Hair 

The common misconception is that shorter hair is low maintenance and whilst that may be true to some extent, you shouldn’t go abandoning your barnet and cleaning out your beauty cabinets just yet if you’ve decided to get ‘the chop’. Although cutting your hair can make if feel healthier and thicker, it still needs TLC, even more so as the length between root and tip is greatly reduced, making split ends a big concern with many find that their hair seemingly ‘stops’ growing. But don’t worry, you can still make that drastic cut and keep your hair in tip-top condition even when it’s short. In our latest blog, we breakdown the best products to help style shorter hair. 

Get to Know Your Hair Type 

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. It’s so important that you get a product that suited to your hair type. Drug store shampoo and conditioners are a one size fits all – but that’s not you! Whether you have straight, curly, wavy, or kinky hair – there’s a product out there made to give your hair nourishment and strengthening it deserves. Our favourite pick is the Insight range of shampoos and conditioners as they have a product for everything, from the Insight Dry Hair- Nourishing Shampoo for those with dry frizzy hair, to the Insight Sensitive- Sensitive Skin Shampoo – they’ve got you covered!  

Don’t Over Wash Your Hair 

It doesn’t matter if you have long or short hair, over washing your hair can more often than not do more harm than good. However, this is especially true for short hair as you can seriously dry out your scalp and the tips of your hair causing it to become dry, brittle, and damaged. The best way to avoid this is to wash your hair every other day or if you can, every few days. Worried about greasy roots? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo not only helps to absorb oil, it refreshes your hair and gives it volume, perfect for those days when you just need to get going!  

Short Hair, Do Care! 

It can be really easy to just let your hair air dry, however, research has shown that brushing your hair stimulates the small blood vessels called capillaries in your scalp, increasing blood circulation and the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. This could encourage hair growth, even strengthening the roots as the sebaceous glands in the scalp produce sebum, so by brushing your hair, the oil moves from root to tip creating a natural protective oil and conditioner. But be warned, not all hairbrushes are created equal. The Tangle Teezers range is not only made for keeping your hair tangle-free, but it offers a range of brushes for different hair types all designed to leave your hair soft and knot-free. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer means it fits in your hand perfectly and glides through the hair without pulling, yanking or snagging. 

Heat Protect Your Hair 

Just because you’ve shorter hair, doesn’t mean you don’t have to protect it from the effects of heat. In fact, adding a heat protectant before blow drying, straightening, or curling short hair can help reduce the risk of breakage and split ends. We recommend the  Leyton House Heat Protect Spray – this little beauty has a formula that not only keeps unwanted frizz at bay, but it prevents breakage and is perfect for any hair type.  

Invest in the Best Styling Tools 

Another thing you can invest in are the salon quality styling tools. The Babyliss Keratin Lustre Dryer is designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of dryer heat with its specially designed keratin-infused ceramic, which fills in the gaps in each hair shaft, making your hair smoother, sleeker, and easier to style. Or if you’re in pursuit of the perfect beachy waves, the Babyliss Tongs are one of the most raved about styling tools and are perfect for creating soft lustrous curls. With a built-in ceramic barrel and heat ready indicator system, you can create waves that are smooth and shiny every time. 

Pamper Hair with a Nourishing Mask 

Having short hair may take a lot of the hassle out of getting ready in the morning, but there’s nothing wrong with giving your hair a pamper once in a while to help prevent or stop damage. From colouring/bleaching hair, to using styling tools – your hair goes through it. One of the best ways to revitalise your hair is to invest some time into a hair mask once or every other week. Our top picks are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which help to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to life. There’s a pack for every situation, choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, Hydrasource  or Smoothproof to keep your hair strong and healthy.

Boost Your Hair Health in Time for World Health Day


Boost Your Hair Health in Time for World Health Day

Almost all of us battle with hair damage, breakage, and frizz – from overusing heat styling tools, the harsh chemicals from hair dye, or even just everyday life like the cold, heat, humidity and pollution. World Health Day (April 7th) is not only an important occasion to focus on the health of your body but your hair as well. In fact, there’s no better time to start sharpening up on your hair care routine and get the healthiest hair of your life with Salon Trusted. Keep reading as we break down our top tips for happy, healthy hair so you’re glowing inside and out in time for World Health Day.

Turn Down the Heat!

We’ve all been there. Running out of time to get ready and you run for the hair straighteners for your quick hair fix. But if a shiny mane is what you’re after, remembering to add a good heat protectant can be a life saver! The  Leyton House Heat Protect Spray is not only a saviour when protecting your hair before heat styling, but its breakthrough formula keeps unwanted frizz at bay, prevents hair fall and breakage, and is a wonder for all hair types.

Want to avoid the heat all together? You can even opt for a heat-free hairstyle using Invisibobble’s Hair Halo – a comfortable, durable headband that won’t crease your hair and is not only a perfect pop of colour but helps to keep hair kink-free, prevents breakage whilst your hair dries naturally.

Know Your Hair Type

Don’t just settle for the first shampoo you see. Whether its straight, curly, wavy or kinky –  there are products out there made for your particular hair type which can help give your hair the love and attention it deserves. The Insight range of shampoos have a product for everything, from the Insight Dry Hair- Nourishing Shampoo for those with dry frizzy hair, to the Insight Sensitive- Sensitive Skin Shampoo – you’re sure to find one for your hair needs!

Rethink the Way You Wash Your Hair

We all like to have clean, healthy hair but sometimes over washing can do more harm than good. Shampooing everyday can seriously dry out your scalp and cause hair damage. The best way to keep your hair clean is to wash your hair every few days and if you still need a refresh use dry shampoo to absorb extra oils and not weight down the hair with excessive washing. Our favourite for a fresh fix is Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo which helps to absorb oil, refresh hair and give your hair volume.

Say Hello to Hair Masks

Sometimes damage is inevitable no matter how hard you try to prevent it, but not to worry.

Hair Masks are number one when it comes to battling damage and promoting healthy hair. A moisturising hair mask can not only help to condition and help with shine, but it can reverse some of the damage done to the ends of your hair where the first signs of damage shows (you know, those dreaded split ends!). Our personal favourite for damage repair are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which helps to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to its healthy state. Choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, or Hydrasource  to get your tresses back to tip top condition.

Detangle, Don’t Rip!

Whenever you are brushing your hair be careful to not put strain on your hair strands and rip the hair from the scalp. Start in small sections, working from the ends of the hair to detangle and reduce breakage. The Tangle Teezers range are made for keeping your locks tangle free. They offer a range of brushes for different hair types all aimed at leaving your hair soft and knot free without the snagging which makes detangling easy and less painful. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer fits in your hand perfectly to help glide through the hair with no pulling or yanking – leaving your hair smooth and damage free.

Incorporate some of these top tips into your daily hair care routine and say goodbye to dry frizzy hair and hello to softer and sleeker locks! For more information or more handy hips, get in touch with our friendly team today.

Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement


Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement

Clean beauty is a growing trend in the beauty industry that is predicted to be a major movement through 2022. However, the overall term is still somewhat murky because there is no industry standard for the category and so, there is room for interpretation. Here at Salon Trusted, we understand the main trait of clean beauty is that it is toxin-free; meaning there are no ingredients included that have been linked to harmful health effects.

With a growing interest in beauty that is natural and obtained from organic sources, more and more brands are producing beauty products which are cleaner for the skin, body and environment. Keep an eye out for labels that say ‘paraben, sulphate, and silicone’ free, as these are considered the three biggest toxins in beauty products today.


If you want to free yourself from toxins and chemical nasties, and introduce more eco-friendly beauty products into your life, take a look at our top 5 clean beauty products listed below.

He-Shi Rapid Edit Gift Box

This limited edition pack from He-Shi has everything you need to achieve a flawless tan in just 60 minutes. Thanks to the advanced time development accelerators, use the Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan to achieve a quick gorgeous glow, leave it on for 2-3 hours for a medium tan or even overnight for 8 hours to wake up with a deep bronzed look. This means you can tailor the colour of your tan depending on your personal preference, or the occasion! The pack also contains a travel size Face & Body Tanning Gel and Rapid 1 Hour Mousse, as well as a tanning mitt, all of which you can currently get your hands on for nearly half price at just £25.00. Every item in the gift box is paraben, alcohol, sulphate, palm oil and mineral oil free. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also vegan friendly, cruelty free and fully recyclable. What’re you waiting for?

Infuse My Colour Platinum Gift Bundle 2021

Your faded colour no longer has to rely on harsh chemicals as this vegan and cruelty-free range has zero nasty chemicals, with no parabens, no silicones and no sulphates!

It’s soap free, toxin free and is even pH optimised for an even gentler cleanse.

Biolage Keratindose Trio Pack

Many shampoos and conditioners contain sulphates that over-cleanse and dry out your scalp. By sticking to sulfate-free formulas, this will help to keep greasiness to a minimum and will cleanse your strands without stripping your scalp or hair of the oils that are needed for strong, healthy locks. All of the Biolage, by Matrix, shampoo and conditioners are sulfate-free to lock in hydration and moisture whilst leaving a refreshed and smooth finish. Our favourite? The Biolage Keratindose Pack, created with pro-keratin and silk to provide targeted reinforcement and moisture balance to over-processed hair.

Well, now hairstylists are saying that the mid-length 90s trend haircut is sticking around a little while longer, especially with celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian blazing the trail. It can also give thin hair a fuller, healthier appearance – result!

Our recommended product:

You’ll find all you need to tame your tresses in this perfect pack: Hair Do Shine Hold Spray – amplifies your hair by infusing it with extra texture and definition, Hair Do Surf Spray – give yourself perfect beachy waves and texture with this lightweight formula, Hairdo Heat Protection Spray – keep frizzing hair at bay with this breakthrough formula which magically nourishes your damaged hair, and finally Hairdo Dry Shampoo – when you have no time to wash your hair but you can’t afford a bad hair day, reach for this breakthrough dry shampoo and get instant fresh hair and a clean scalp.

The Centre Parting

Gone are the days of the centre parting being a ‘nerdy’ hairstyle. It’s been elevated to cult status, sported by celebrities and influencers alike.


Our recommended products:

Leyton House Powder Power A lot of people avoid the middle parting as it can highlight greys or greasy roots. Enter, Powder Power. Give your roots an instant boost with this volumizing dry powder. This amazing non-tacky powder can help to create a tousled effect, be used to absorb unwanted oil or even restyle day-old hair.

Color Wow Root Cover Up There’s nothing worse than sporting a cute centre parting and noticing you need to hit the salon pronto, but you’re out of time. The Color Wow Root Cover Up is a magic powder that conceals grey roots and can even refresh highlights and thicken thinning hairlines. No more fussing with messy sprays – this powder and brush set allows for precise application. Unlike crayons and mascaras, the formula is not waxy or sticky making it easy to apply. Available in 8 shades from Platinum to Black.

90s Layers

Unless you were living under a rock, we all know what the ‘Rachel’ haircut was. Sported by Jennifer Anniston in the mid-90s by the eponymous Rachel from hit tv show ‘Friends’, this iconic hairstyle is great for adding volume, movement, and shape as it frames the face and can add texture to any tired style.

Our recommended product:

Color Wow EXTRA Mist-ical Shine Spray Turn heads with this shine spray to make your hair look sparkling and healthy. This ground-breaking product from Color Wow utilises the light-producing power of Mullein, a flower Phenom that traps invisible UV light and converts it into full-spectrum light – resulting in an intense glossy shine.

The Side Parting

There was heated debate among Millennials and Gen Z whether side partings were ‘out’ or worse, were branded ‘cheugy’. We can confirm that the side parting is back (if it ever really left) – especially with the aforementioned bob. Celebrity stylists predict that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the chic bob paired with a heavy side parting – perfect for anyone looking to emulate the classic Parisian style.


Our recommended products:

Insight Daily Use – Bodifying Dry Shampoo If you’re trying to cut down on washing your hair every day then Insight’s Daily Use dry shampoo may be the last dry shampoo you’ll ever need. This dry shampoo powder gets rid of oil and gives hair fullness and volume in seconds giving the appearance of thicker hair without the weight.

Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo Matrix’s dry shampoo works to absorb oil without weighing down the hair like traditional high street brands, making it the perfect dry shampoo spray for those with fine or thin hair.

Curls
On the opposite end of the trend spectrum is big hair. In 2022 we are going to see a lot more curls, from beach waves to soft tight curls and thanks to Adele, big, bouncy, blowouts. Those blessed with natural curls – rejoice and embrace them – your in-vogue style is about to be the envy of even more people.


Our recommended products:

Love Your Curl Shampoo Give your curly hair some TLC with this specially designed cruelty-free and vegan formula created to reduce frizz, increase shine, and define curls and softer waves. Take it to the next level and partner with the Love Your Curl Conditioner which strengthens and repairs.


Babyliss Spectrum 19mm Wand Purple Mist Not blessed with natural curls? We may have the answer. With a midsize ceramic barrel, this wand is made to create beautiful, long-lasting defined curls with a silky, smooth finish. The ceramic coated 19mm extra-long barrel is perfect for those with longer hair and allows you complete control to create the look you desire whilst the choice of 25 different temperature settings up to 200°C mean you can protect your hair whilst creating a look that expresses your individuality.

Going ‘au naturel’

There’s been a sharp trend in consumers choosing natural, cruelty-free, vegan products and it looks like this trend is here to stay. Not only do we know that harsh chemicals can strip the hair of essential oils, they can also be tough on the scalp and can even cause flaking or dandruff. We’ve also seen a sharp rise in people foregoing washing their hair every day, allowing their hair to return to its natural state. Especially after lockdown and not being able to get to salons, many people embraced their natural hair colour or texture. Stylists expect that although people are returning to the salon, they’ll still be staying true to themselves and their hair.


Our recommended products:

Foamie Aloe You Vera Much Shampoo Bar  There are many Foamie bars available for those with thin hair, dry hair, coloured hair – there’s a bar for everyone – but the Aloe You Vera Much bar is a great place to start, especially if you have dry hair as a result of colouring. Not only is then Foamie bar 100% vegan, animal testing free, and free from silicones, dyes, sulphates, and nanoparticles – it’s environmentally friendly and holds up to 25 washes. This shampoo moisturizes and prevents the hair from drying out – perfect if you’re going a couple of days between hair washes.


Foamie Aloe You Vera Much Conditioner Bar With aloe vera and hydrolyzed oat proteins, this conditioner is the perfect companion to your shampoo bar. This Foamie conditioner bar prevents hair breakage and intensely moisturises, while the pH of 4.5 helps seal your hair. Like its companion, the Foamie conditioner bar contains 0% mineral oils, PEG, soap, parabens, silicones and liliale.

One-Dimensional Colour

Say goodbye to soft highlights, lowlights, and balayage in 2022. It looks like one-dimensional colour will be knocking those trends off the top shelf. Think soft and subtle chocolate browns, gingers, and warm honey colours. And good news for maintenance, as having one overall colour means upkeep is kept at a minimum.


Our recommended products:

 Total Results 2021 Color Obsessed Trio With revolutionary Fade Guard technology, the Colour Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner work together to inject moisture and hydration into your colour treated hair, whilst creating definition and boosting shine. Buy now and get a FREE Mini Miracle Creator 20; a multi-tasking treatment with 20 beautifying benefits for your hair!


Biolage 2021 Keratindose Duo Colouring your hair can mean it needs a little more TLC than usual. The Keratindose Shampoo and Conditioner is designed specially to treat dull, weak and damaged locks. Infused with pro-keratin, the formula restores your hair from roots to tip, sealing in the moisture and leaving your hair healthier, frizz-free and up to 90% more nourished after just one application!

Side Bangs

This is not a drill! 2022 will see the resurrection of the side bang, a staple in the 00s. Stylists predict that a slightly longer side-swept bang will be requested from the salon chair. It may be a throwback, but this style is perfect for those looking to test the water with bangs, without going under a full chop. The side bang offers a lot of versatility with the middle parting, being pinned, or simply being tucked behind the ear.

Our recommended product:

Loreal SteamPod 3.0 Straightening Tool – White Having a kink in our bangs is not what we’re looking for in the new year, but have no fear, Loreal is transforming the way we style our hair with these steam-powered straighteners. Using a continuous flow of high-pressure steam to hydrate each strand from the inside out without causing heat damage, the SteamPod also features a new rotative cord for hassle-free waves meaning no matter the style you choose, you’ll be left with smooth, soft, and natural-looking shiny hair.

Hair Contouring

And just like that… Sarah Jessica Parker is back on our screens and with that so is the classic ‘money piece’ hairstyle. Think, face-framing balayage strategically placed near the front giving an expensive, glamourous highlighted look. Well in 2022, we’re going to be going one step further with the ‘hair contour’. Instead of bold highlights framing the face, hair contouring sees clusters of highlights, using softer-contrast lighter shade around the face in a soft colour block. Sounds like a lot? Surprisingly this hair trend has relatively low maintenance and is perfect for those who are looking to brighten up their look and skin tone.


Our recommended product:

Color Wow Dream Coat 200ml Expensive looking hair needs the best aftercare, especially in the winter months. Color Wow’s Dream Coat is a lightweight, anti-humidity, anti-static hair care spray that can transform even the frizziest, unmanageable hair into smooth, hydrated and bouncy locks. This easy-to-use spray coats each strand of hair with an invisible, waterproofing layer that helps to control moisture levels for up to 3 washes.

Blondes (and Coppers) Have More Fun

We’ve seen a rise in the ‘expensive brunette’ trend which saw rich chocolate brown colours woven together with luscious blacks being adopted. Next year, however, this trend will evolve to include blondes and copper tones too. This means we’ll be seeing a lot of blondes including sumptuous strawberry and copper tones to add a three-dimensional aspect to their hair. This is also good news for traditional brunettes or darker as it will see lighter, warmer tones like toffee, amber and light brown sugar shades being included.


Our recommended products:

Infuse My Colour Copper Shampoo Gift Bundle This shampoo and conditioner bundle from infuse my. The Colour is designed to maintain the brightness of deep strawberry blonde, copper, auburn, and warm brown hair and is vegan and cruelty-free with no parabens, silicones or sulphates make it gentle on your hair.
