What is a toner? And why do I need one?
We come across this question a lot in the salon, as sometimes it can feel like your paying extra for something that you don't see.
A toner is the difference between brassy tiger stripes and beautifully blended highlights, find out more here….
What is a toner?
A toner is a type of colour that’s applied to neutralise brassy/yellow tones after lightening. We need to see the colour that we'll be neutralising first, so that's why you'll find us running off into the back room to mix your toner after rinsing off your foils! A toner can be applied on towel dried hair or dry hair.
Why do I need one?
Whenever a lightener or bleach is applied it starts to lift out natural or artificial colour, but at the same time brings out any underlying warmth. Everyone has some degree of natural warmth in their hair, but as a quick rule of thumb, people with amber flecks around their pupils have more warmth than a person with flat brown/blue eyes. Dark artificial dyes contain extra warmth, which is why going from box colour black to blonde is impossible in one sitting!
Is a toner bad for my hair?
A toner is another chemical treatment yes, but the toners we use are full of ceramides (which smooth the cuticle and makes your hair look silky and shiny). Our toners do not contain any ammonia, as we aren't lightening the hair, just depositing colour. Your hair will actually feel healthier after a toner compared to just a lightening service. If you decided to opt for our VIP Bond Ultim8 colour upgrade, the treatment will be added to your toner too, meaning you get double VIP treatment!
Is there one toner for everyone?
No! We have a dispensary of over 25 different toners, all of which are intermixable to specifically neutralise the underlying warmth and give you a personalised colour suited to your skin tone. Whether it be platinum, ashy, pearl, dusky pink, caramel or honey blonde, there's a toner for everyone.
How long does a toner last?
A toner can last from 2-6 weeks, dependant on the colour and the integrity of the hair. The more porous or damaged the hair, the quicker the toner will fade, although having a colour lock treatment will help. The lighter and cooler the toner, the quicker it will fade, so those platinum white blondes and steely greys turn out to be high maintenance and may need toning every couples of weeks. During your consultation we will discuss these issues with you, so no nasty surprises!
How do I prolong my toner?
The best way to prolong your toner is to not wash your hair so often! Once your hair has been lightened, it's in a fragile state, so by washing everyday not only is going to fade your colour quicker, it's also going to dry out your hair and remove all of your natural oils. Another great tip is to use a toning shampoo and conditioner. We stock a variety of different strength toning shampoos, conditioners and masks and we can prescribe the perfect one for you.

Wow!! Look at all this hair!
These are a small selection of haircuts we've done in the last 6 months, where our generous customers have donated their hair to The Little Princess Trust.
The Little Princess Trust (click here for more info) are a charity that turn your donated locks into wigs for young children that have lost their hair through cancer or other diseases. It can take 7-10 donations to make a single wig, so every little bit of hair helps!
This year ghd have got involved and have helped spread the word with the hashtag #choptoyourchin. We are so proud of all our clients that have braved to chop their hair to help children have hair!
36 new wigs that have been made possible by peoples donations.
Also its just been reported that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge has anonymously donated some of her hair. From one Princess to another!
If you fancy a change, and also making a difference, give us a call and get booked in for a restyle!

Good Luck to Steph who has entered Matrix Destination Fame!
This is Stephs entry to this years Destination Fame, the hottest hair colour competition of the year!
Steph says, "I got my inspiration for this style from catwalks and functions like Pro Hair Live 2013 and Matrix Live. Reds and coppers have been on trend for autumn/winter carrying through into spring/summer. This a classic cut with a modern twist, with careful colour placement for a softening effect.
We love it!
