How to Cut it in Isolation – with Rick Walters

We spoke to SALON64 founder, Ricky Walters, on how to cut it in self isolation

“First of all do not lose patience with your hair! In my years within the hairdressing industry I have only ever seen disasters when clients cut their own hair. Whether it be a little trim of the fringe or simply cutting out the split ends it never ends well! Wait for all this to blow over and return to your salon as usual. Your local salon will welcome your support. Better yet, purchase online or over social media a voucher to help your local salon business during this tricky time.”

Colour- for those worried about roots coming through while stuck inside and unable to visit their favourite colourist I recommend one miracle cure; Colour Wow! Applied like eye shadow, it disguises your greys and regrowth. No more roots!

I would stay away from box dyes and at home hair dyes you can purchase from the supermarket. These dyes stay in your hair for a very long time and make it impossible for a hairdresser to correct quickly.

Condition – self-isolation is the perfect excuse to actually look after your hairs health. For those staying inside anyway, wash your hair and leave a deep conditioning mask on your hair all day! You may look a little slick but who cares when working from home! Rinse out in the evening and you will be left with silky locks. I love all the deep conditioners from R&Co!

Disguise – There are a ton of ways to disguise long hair that needs a cut. A loose boho pony-tail or messy hair up is a fantastic cover up. Adding hair jewellery higher up the hair is a great way to distract the eyes looking at your split ends and add a sense of glam, care and being polished.”
