BRIDE AND JOY
With wedding season on the horizon, take a tip from the bridal runways where sleek and chic was the order of the (big) day. One of the most requested styles from our Westrow Bridal Specialists is always a ponytail, it’s thoroughly modern, but the beauty of this style is that it can be as simple or as ‘look at me’ as you dare!
If it’s a low tousled ponytail you’re after, ask your stylist to create textured waves in varying sizes, before pulling back into a low pony. The roots can be smoothed down for a sleek finish (add some shine spray for added chic), or worn wavy for a more relaxed, beach-wedding vibe. Accessorise with a giant white bow (gorgeous against a simple dress, or for a city wedding) or adorn with a few tiny flowers through the style, as we did in this relaxed waterfall braid. Small flowers, like Gypsophilia, were all over the catwalk this year, and make a romantic, but oh-so-on-trend, finish to a bridal braid or pony.

Fix up, look sharp
At Westrow, we’re no stranger to men’s hairdressing. In fact when we opened our second Westrow salon in April 1994 (in the Victoria Quarter in Leeds) we launched a dedicated gent’s salon, employing uber experienced barbers for early morning shaves, quickly endorsed by the sporting fraternity and media alike. Fast forward to 2022 and effortless, understated styling has become a huge hit across the group since lockdown, as many clients are looking to embrace longer locks (and greys), preferring a low-maintenance approach to haircare and colour that requires minimum time. Visit your nearest Westrow salon to see how our team can help you perfect your new season style with ease.
If it’s temporary tones you’re looking for this season, we offer American Crew Precision Blend. It’s speedy (it only takes five minutes) and is perfect if you’re looking to achieve a naturally blended look that lasts up to 24 washes. It can also be used on beards to up your colour game, offering natural, tone-on-tone grey coverage for some new season va va voom!
