Our ‘Freedom’ themed photoshoot at Cobo Community Centre in Guernsey gave the salon’s team a chance to work with hair in a whole new way. No rules and no restrictions!

Stylists and apprentices in training were able to push the boundaries and discover exciting new techniques using different tools and products.

‘For the professional development of a hair stylist, it’s really important that you are given opportunities to get out of your comfort zone. Trying new things gives confidence when it comes to everyday hair styling.

As well as encouraging individual creativity, it was great to see our stylists working together. We’re a very collaborative team always looking to helping each other grow and develop.’ – Tammi Ozanne, Director.

Here’s a sneak peak into the some of the team’s favourite tools and products used to create the looks…

MOST POPULAR TOOL

ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand

This is one of the most versatile hair styling tools out there as it’s perfect for all hair types. Its tri-zone technology’s six sensors for even heat distribution seals cuticles and reduces damage. What else makes this wand so magical? Long lasting curls of all shapes and sizes - quickly and easily! From tight curls to loose waves, our stylists were able to create a wide range of styles.

MOST POPULAR PRODUCTS

Tigi Catwalk Root Boost Spray

‘This spray was incredibly popular as it allowed our stylists to transform flat hair and keep it firmly in place. It really does last so aside from the photoshoot, it’s also perfect for a night out. It smells great too!’ – Tammi Ozanne, Director.

How to use: Shake well. Section off dry hair, spray onto roots and blow dry for volume and lift.   

Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity Hairspray

‘A lot of people worry that sprays like this will make their hair look greasy and crunchy, but this one is the complete opposite. It’s extremely lightweight but don’t be fooled as it still works hard to keep unruly hair under control!’ – Lisa Williamson, Top Stylist.

How to use: Shake well. Spray onto dry hair and reapply during styling for maximum hold.

MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine

‘I think what’s so great about this product is that a little goes a very long way. It gives hair incredible gloss and shine, which you can really see in the photos.’ – Roxy Barry, Top Stylist.

How to use: After styling, spray onto dry hair from a distance of approximately 10 inches (25cm) and allow product to set for a few minutes. Can also be used before sun exposure to protect hair from UV damage.  

Wella LuxeOil

‘A lot of us used this product on wet hair before drying and heat styling as it gives moisture and protection. This is one of our most popular products in general at the salon as it leaves damaged hair looking healthy and soft.’ – Emma Mansfield, Senior Stylist.

How to use: Apply a few pumps to the mid lengths and ends of wet hair avoiding roots. Dry / style as normal.

Beyond the hair

Our photoshoot would not have been possible without our beautiful models and the help of local makeup artist Sophie Turvey. Thank you all!

We’d also like to thank filming & editing guru James Harrison and Nick Despres for his stunning photography.
