Hi guys! Can you believe it’s almost March already! The year is in full swing with busy schedules and manic routines (wishing I could have some more ‘chill time’)! However, something that’s not so chilled lately is the amount of grays I’ve been getting, especially after having kids and hormones raging, and it has definitely been a hassle but I’ve fully embraced having to colour my hair for quite a few years now…
As women, we could all agree that we spend our life’s allowances on enhancing our appearance – whether it’s keeping fit to stay in shape or investing vast amounts on beauty products and treatments, to prevent all those dreaded lines appearing; getting rid of unwanted spots and endless, expensive make-up, and regimes to look fabulous. What’s really important is taking good care of our hair and maintaining that healthy shine from our youthful days. I have asked Sean Cox from SWEPT, Morningside, JHB to share the latest trends and tips in the hair world with all of us, and here’s what he had to say:
Middle-parted draping bangs, like I gave you à la Alexa Chung; strong- boldly cut bobs. No more short-to-long (must fall around your chin). Clean strong lines. The shag is still here this season. So loose and effortless . Does need some maintenance on ends to keep it going. Your stylist should have enough experience to know can’t keep texturizing.

Big and bold is here to stay: statement pieces of silver and other bright colours are no longer the domain of teenagers and ‘fringe society’ ( a little hair humour). Hair colour has never been this exciting. Natural colour is also still very much on trend, with technique being key to expensive glamorous looks.

Treatments are any ‘girl-on-the-gos’ necessary secret: blow drying hair keeps it groomed and glam but it also takes moisture out the hair, hence moisture needs to be put back, for long-lasting elasticity and shine.
Glossy, healthy hair that moves catches anyone’s eye, so alternate at times between your favourite hair brand’s strengthening and moisturizing products that compliment each other, and help hair withstand what we expect of it today.
Curling wands have been around for a while now but they are really so versatile: long loose waves, fine hair bodifier or seriously set in place curls – a wand can give you so much more. Learn to place the curls in the right place and brush gently for different finishes. Remember to ALWAYS use heat a protector!
