We’re very excited to introduce Wella Professionals’ WELLAPLEX service to the salon.

The exclusive bond technology reconstructs hair bonds deep inside the hair for perfect blonde results and perfect colour.

Hair feels healthier, more manageable. Transform damaged hair into stronger hair.

WELLAPLEX is an exclusive technology that helps to reconstruct inner hair bonds for stronger hair during lightening and color services, whilst ensuring perfect lifting and color results.

  • It reconstructs hair bonds for stronger hair.
  • The Opti pH System enables optimal penetration of lifting and dye molecules for perfect color and lightening development.
  • It is the perfect match for Wella Professionals lighteners and colour.

Try Fusion for instant and long-lasting hair recovery

admin Blog, Hair
We just love Wella Professionals' Fusion, their first intensive hair recovery and repair system for truly overworked hair, featuring new SILKSTEEL FUSION PROGRAM.

'Fusion gives your hair such a silky smooth finish,' says salon owner Georgina. 'It's proving to be really popular in the salon and we have a range of products for clients to take home too. We love it!'

The new deep hair repair treatment provides instant and long lasting results allowing Grace Hair & Beauty clients to recapture optimum hair strength, protection and performance. And, the accompanying at home regimen extends the results of a salon-fresh hair between salon appointments.

Here's the technical bit…

SILKSTEEL FUSION PROGRAM with amino acids takes inspiration from nature’s own strongest fiber - spider silk - and penetrates hair down to the cortex. Deep within the hair it refills worn hair fibre to optimum condition, leaving hair up to 95% more resilient to breakage. Hair cuticles are protected and sealed against free radical damage and mechanical damage while instant conditioners leave it primed for hairbrushes and tools to glide through.

Wella Professionals NEW Fusion’s premium line up offers a unique care solution. It allows clients to fully combat the exertion they inflict on their hair as they experiment, play and reinvent their style. NEW Fusion works on fashionably longer, often stressed hair lengths, as well as shorter styles, countering heat fatigue, chemical fatigue and daily environmental challenges.

To evoke the elegance of a luxurious pampering setting, nine carefully selected scents form the NEW Fusion by Wella Professionals fragrance range exude the top notes of floriental wood punctuated by the warm, woody and nutty base notes of Cedarwood and Sandalwood for a sophisticated finish.

Time to take a hair MOT?

admin Blog

The changing of the seasons means changing conditions for our hair to deal with.

Time to take a hair MOT. Here’s some tips from the Grace team:

HYDRATE YOUR HAIR
Central heating can leave your hair feeling dry and unmanageable or even full of static energy.
Deep conditioning, moisture-based treatments will give your hair a new lease of life, making it more manageable and easy to style.

LOOK AFTER YOURSELF
Of course, drinking plenty of water is another way to keep your hair hydrated, so keep the H20 on the go. A healthy diet is also key to healthy looking hair, so eating lovely fruit and vegetables goes a long way too. ‘Common coughs and colds can actually be seen in your hair structure’ says Grace stylist Georgina. ‘So looking after yourself is just as important as using the right products.’

A range of WELLA products are available at Grace Hair & Beauty

PROTECT YOUR HAIR AT HOME
You don’t just need to wrap up with coats and scarves as autumn turns to winter, you also need to protect your hair against the elements. Wind and colder weather can be damaging, so protein-based products, complemented by moisturising products to keep your hair soft, help stop breakage and keep you looking lovely as the leaves begin to fall.

COLOUR PROTECT
With hair becoming a little more difficult to control in colder conditions, the WELLA Glamour Recharge colour enhancing spray improves the look of your colour and adds a welcome shine to your hair. Now available at Grace Hair & Beauty.

Pop in to Grace for a free hair check-up and we’ll recommend the products for your home-care regime. ‘We’re always on hand to give you advice on looking after your hair,’ says Georgina, ‘just pop in, give us a call or book an appointment online.’
