Test Driving The New Dyson Hairdryer!

Posted on June 15, 2016 at 9:44 AM Comments comments (0)
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer
(RRP £300)








I've been waiting for months and I've finally got to test the new Dyson hairdryer!
I'm one of those people who love gadgets (I am already a proud owner of 2 Dyson vacuums and a Dyson room fan) if anything can make my life easier I'm all for it! 

I tested the Dyson against our salon ghd Air dryer (RRP £99).

First Impressions

The Dyson hairdryer was really nicely packed (reminded me of Apple packaging!) and came with 2 nozzles, a diffuser and a heat mat. The guarantee is 2 years.
The ghd air comes gift boxed with 2 nozzles and a 1 year guarantee.



Using


The Dyson felt really light in my hand, almost too light, but I soon got used to it. It is so quiet, it almost tricks you into thinking it's not as powerful as the others, but it is! The nozzles are magnetic and stay cool, so no burnt finger when you take them off! The small barrel means as a hairdresser you can't loop the hair as you're drying, which would be a downside for some. But a good point is that it's impossible for hair to be sucked up into filter- no more burning hair smell!

The Result

The side that was blowdried with the Dyson definitely dried quicker, and I couldn't really tell the difference between the two sides, possibly the ghd air side was slightly smoother.

The Verdict

I love the ingenuity of the Dyson. Everything down to the plug has been thought about and meticulously designed. The quiet motor meant me and my client could have a conversation with having to shout or turn the dryer off.
The size and weight is a massive plus, for hairdressers as well as customers and it's perfect for taking away on holiday.

I would love to say that my ghd Airs have got to find a new home, and that the salon will be a "Dyson" salon, but for now the pricing is just too high. Yes it is lighter, quieter and quicker (only just!) but does that warrant an extra £200? I'm undecided..... What do you think?

How to wash your hair the Tulip Hair way!!

Posted on August 12, 2015 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)
Does your hair go limp & flat? Do you have to wash your hair everyday?


Try the Tulip way to wash your hair for a couple of weeks and see the difference it makes!


1. Brush your hair before you jump in the shower (this stimulates the scalp and removes loose hairs).

2. Wet your hair and rub a 20p sized blob of shampoo between your fingers. Apply to your scalp (not your hair!) and massage using circular motions. Rinse.

3. Repeat step 2. (This is the most important step!) This second wash lifts and removes oils from the hair and scalp and leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean.

4. Next apply a 10p sized amount of conditioner through the ends (any hair below your ears) and comb through with a Tangle Teezer to detangle. Rinse well.

5. Squeeze the excess water from your hair and wrap or pat dry with a towel (microfibre is the best!) Any ruffling will cause the cuticle to raise and make your hair frizzy!

6. Have fabulous hair!

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!

It's all about the Modern Man!

Posted on April 17, 2013 at 5:58 PM Comments comments (0)
It's all about the Modern Man....
 
Men are becoming more and more interested in fashion, styling and grooming and WE LOVE IT!
 
So much so that we have redesigned a whole new price list especially for men! As well as haircuts and barbering we can offer discreet colour to blend away the first signs of aging, highlights or even a perm.
 
 
 
Last week Amy and Steph made their way down to London to spend the day shadowing Mens Hairdresser of the Year, Jamie Stevens while he showcased his latest mens trends.
 
As well as picking up a diploma in modern mens hairdressing they managed to pick his brains about all things hair and some behind the scenes X Factor gossip (Jamie is the resident hairdresser!)
 
 
The trends for this year are centred on sharp tailored back and sides leaving more length through the front. This makes it easy to mess up for a casual look or sweep to the side for a more classic, sophisticated feel.
 
 
So if you're a modern man (or an aspiring one!), come and see us!

ghd Eclipse Launch Party
 
Tulip Hair was thrilled to be personally invited to the ghd Eclipse launch in Birmingham this week.  We had a great night watching fab stylists taking to the stage to show off exactly what the new styler could do.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As shown in some of the pictures above the new Eclipse stylers can tackle even the toughest afro hair.  This is due to the revolutionary new technology:
We were lucky enough to get an Eclipse styler in our goodie bag after the event so pop into Tulip Hair to get yours hands on a pair and see the difference.  We promise you'll love them, we are hooked already!

New ghd Eclipse

New ghd Eclipse
 
The new innovation in hair straightening has arrived!
 
ghd Eclipse!
 
It's been 12 years since the launch of the very first Good Hair Day ('ghd' for short) straightening irons.  The company didn't advertise their product for the first two years after they were released, instead used the performance in salons to create a buzz and word of mouth quickly spread that these were the best straighteners out!
 
Although the slightly pricey £120 price tag (this was 12 years ago!) shocked a lot of people, once you tried your friends/sisters/hairdressers ghds you were hooked!
I, having started in the hairdressing industry 10 years ago, began to witness the most extraordinary scenes in December.  Men coming into salons that they would not even step into normally, gasping:
"Do you sell those straighteners? HDDs? HGDs? Those ones that are £120? My wife is desperate for them, thats all she wants for Christmas!"
We were constantly sold out, as soon as we had a delivery, they were gone.
 
Fast forward back to the present and every woman on the planet has heard of ghd. 99% of customers that walk through my salon door own a pair, some even two (different colours of course!) I have mothers coming into the salon that tell me their daughters are moving away to university and they are gutted...... Because they are taking their ghds!
 
So why am I telling you all of this?
 
Because ghd have done something even more extraordinary, they have completely redesigned their styler and its the most futuristic yet!
 
Here's a little tease....
 
ghd Eclipse
 
 
...... but check back for more info soon!
