Stay Hydrated & Drink Plenty Of Water

Drinking the right amount of water is vital to your health because it flushes out nasty toxins, clears your skin and gives you energy.  The recommended daily water intake for adults is 8 glasses a day, so make sure that you keep a water bottle topped up and to hand throughout the day.

Tidy Out Your Dressing Table Drawers

facials and massages, suzanne's hair and beauty salon, coventryIt’s time to tidy out your dressing table drawers.  Get rid of those old mascaras, worn down lipsticks and ancient eyeshadow.  Your make-up has a shelf-life so throw away anything that has been sitting around for years!

While you are at it, why not wash your make up brushes?  Dirt and bacteria collect on your make up brushes so it’s important to keep them clean to avoid transferring ‘nasties’ to your face.

Messy Pixie Cuts

Get a short, sharp pixie haircut for 2020 and change up the style with some product to give you an on-trend messy short hairstyle. Imagine, even less styling time needed in the mornings! Simply tousle your hair and you're ready to face the day!

1960s-Inspired Hairstyles

Invoke the Swinging Sixties with deep side partings and lots of volume at the crown. You could even add in a micro-fringe for a fabulous new look for 2020.

The Trend For Fringes in 2020

Add a fringe to your hairstyle for a completely new look for 2020. Speak to the experts at Suzanne's Hair Salons where we can help you find the perfect fringe to suit you.

Soft Pastel Hair Colours

Pastel hair colour is a trend that continues in 2020 but we think your hair colour will be even paler and prettier.  We are talking chalk-like pastel shades such as soft lavenders, pale pinks and muted rose gold hair colours.  

Casual Bobbed Hairstyles

The bob haircut never truly goes out of style. In the 1920s, flapper girls had short blunt bob haircuts and in 2020 we reckon we will see a shift of focus away from short blunt bob hairstyles, to more messy long bobs.

To add interest & movement to your tousled bob, ask your stylist about a layered bob haircut. A layered bob is one of the more popular choices since it can make fine hair look voluminous and thick, heavy hair easy to care for.

Curly Hair for Parties

Loose wavy hair or a full head of big bouncy curls are great looks for a special party. The look you want may depend on the type of event you are attending. Structured waves may suit a form formal event or dinner party, while slightly messy waves and curls have a more ‘rock chick’ feel so fit well in a less formal setting.

Party Upstyles 

You can’t go wrong with an upstyle or updo for your party. We’ve seen a trend towards more casual upstyles with pretty tendrils falling around the face. Although they may appear to have a ‘loose’ structure, rest assured that your upstyle will remain firmly in place as you dance the night away.

Plaited Hair Ideas for Parties

Plaited hairstyles have a super cool vibe and can dress up any outfit or even give it a bit of ‘edge’.  A simple plaited hairstyle is something you can achieve at home, but if you’re looking for a more intricate look, perhaps some plaits incorporated into an upstyle, then make sure you book in to Suzanne’s for a gorgeous party hairstyle.

How To Get Glowing Skin

How To Get Great-Looking Skin – Advice From The Skin Specialists at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Salon in Coventry

How To Get Glowing Skin

What should you be doing to get gorgeous glowing skin?  Here we answer your questions about your skin, skin care routines and skin care to ensure you look and feel fabulous.  

Do I Need To Wear Sunscreen In Winter?

Yes!  You should wear a high SPF sunscreen all year through. Even when the sun does not appear to be shining brightly (or you are sitting in the shade), the sun is there and you are at risk of sun exposure which can result in fine lines and sagging skin.  

Will Chocolate Give Me Spots?

There is no evidence to suggest that eating chocolate will lead to spots but, as with everything we would suggest moderation! If you’re suffering from acne-prone skin, chat to one of our skin specialists.  We offer a wide range of treatments that can help with blemished skin so take some time to book in for a consultation.

Should I Use Expensive Skin Care?

While there’s something very luxurious about using premium skincare, doing so may not be the best course of action for your skin.  Do not over-load your skin with products. Instead, get some advice from our Coventry skin specialists who can help you find a skin care regime that is tailored to your skin type and needs. 

Can I Try ‘Professional’ Skin Treatments at Home

Please beware cheap alternatives to professional salon treatments.  They may save you money, but they may also harm your skin.  It simply is not worth the risk that you might permanently damage your skin.

The 10 Skin Care Sins

Are You Guilty of the 10 Cardinal Skin Care Sins? Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Salon in Coventry Reveals All!

How many of these skin care sins are you guilty of?  If your skin needs some tender loving care, book in for a luxurious facial or specialist skin treatment at your favourite beauty salon in Coventry soon!

1. Forgot To Take Your Make Up Off At Night?

facials and massages, suzanne's hair and beauty salon, coventryDid you climb into bed again without removing your make up?

It’s important to fully cleanse your skin to remove your make up and the build-up of toxins.  Pollution, smoke and car fumes all create an invisible film on the surface of our skin. These chemicals lead to the generation of free radicals which damage our skin cell’s DNA.

This is a leading cause of premature skin ageing because it prevents skin cells dividing and repairing themselves, and damages collagen.

Overnight make up becomes impacted in the skin pores which clogs and stretches them. This causes inflammation in the skin follicles which can lead to infection and spot formation. The pores also become stretched and dilated, with time; they lose their ability to spring back, so the pores look bigger permanently.

2. Did You Remove Your Make Up With Face Wipes?

Although quick and easy to use, face wipes are not ideal for cleansing your skin. Nothing beats washing your face with a cleanser to fully remove make up, dirt and pollution from the skin surface. Wipes simply spread the grime around without effectively removing it.

They also leave a residue on the skin which can actually irritate the skin and prevent serums and moisturisers being absorbed properly.

3. Are You Using Too Much Moisturiser or Serum?

 It’s tempting to layer on more of your skin care product in an attempt to boost or speed up the desired effects. Not only is this wasteful but it can actually overload the skin; clogging pores and in some causes causing congestion, inflammation and triggering break outs. A “pea-sized” amount of product is usually sufficient.

4. Are You Wearing Sunscreen?

facials and massages, suzanne's hair and beauty salon, coventryEven if the sun isn’t shining, we still need a high Sun Protection Factor to protect our skin. The effects of UV rays on our skin is the number one cause of premature skin ageing. UV rays trigger a free radical cascade which leads to intracellular damage to skin cells. This stops them growing and repairing and also damages collagen.

A broad spectrum sunscreen is best as it protects against UVA and UVB rays.  SPF 50 is ideal. It is also really important to have a separate sunscreen rather than one combined with foundations or moisturisers.

5. Oily Skin?  Don’t Forget To Moisturise!

Just because your skin is oily doesn’t mean it does need moisture. All skin types need to be moisturised – just make sure you use the right moisturiser for your skin type. In fact, not moisturising oily skin can may it oilier, by triggering a surge in oil production when the skin is dry and dehydrated.

Invest in a moisturiser which will keep your oil levels in balance at the same time as giving your skin the moisture it needs. Remember moisturisers hydrate the skin by adding water, not oil.

6. When Did You Last Wash Your Make Up Brushes?

facials and massages, suzanne's hair and beauty salon, coventryYou wouldn’t wear the same clothes day in day out without washing them, so why apply make up every day with the same make up brushes without cleaning them?

Used make up brushes are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The bacteria multiply on your make brush ready to be applied to your skin the next time you use them.

The bacteria can then cause redness, congestion and trigger breakouts.

7. Over-Exfoliating Your Face?

Over exfoliating can actually cause more harm than good. Exfoliation is an essential part of your skin care routine, but overdoing it can cause skin irritation and moisture imbalances. So if you are exfoliating daily with a facial scrub, then applying a serum containing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids which chemically exfoliate the skin surface, followed by a regular microdermabrasion or skin peel – stop!  Seek professional advice from the skin experts at Suzanne’s Beauty Salon in Coventry. Be mindful of the frequency and time allowed between treatments.

8. Using The Wrong Products For Your Skin Type?

When it comes to choosing your skin care products the first step is understanding your skin type.

Typically people buy products based on recommendations from others. This may not be bad advice but it’s important to remember, what is perfect for your mum or your best friend may not be best suited to your skin.

Identify whether your skin is dry, oily or combination. It is also important to consider what your skin is sensitive to, what causes breakouts and which types of products have led to skin improvements in the past.

Take the time to book in for a skin analysis/consultation to fully understand your skin type and tailor your skin care regime based on this.

9. Are You Getting Enough Sleep?

Sleep is the time when your body repairs and regenerates. Skin cells are some of the most actively dividing cells in the body and the majority of their activity takes place while you’re asleep. Lack of quality sleep on a regular basis increases your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol causes inflammation throughout the body. It can trigger flare-ups in pre-existing, inflammatory skin conditions like acne and psoriasis.

Cortisol also increases the breakdown down of collagen. Collagen fibres are an essential part of the matrix found in the dermis of the skin which gives it volume and elasticity. Collagen breakdown occurs naturally as part of the ageing process and leads to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Therefore increased levels of cortisol can lead to premature ageing.

10. Too Many Take-Aways?

facials and massages, suzanne's hair and beauty salon, coventryNot getting your five a day deprives your skin of essential vitamins and minerals. Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables provides an excellent source of antioxidants, like vitamin C and vitamin E which are needed for skin health and have some great anti-ageing benefits.

Diets high in sugar also can cause premature ageing by increasing collagen breakdown… and refined sugar and dairy products may also cause flare-ups in skin conditions like acne.

Natural Looking Hair Colour

The Trend for Natural-Looking Hair Colours at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Clinic in Coventry

Not everyone is blessed with a gorgeous natural hair colour, but don’t worry, this new trend will have everyone fooled that your natural hair is stunningly perfect. The natural-looking hair colour trend can be achieved through balayage, warm brunette lowlights and golden blonde highlights, all of which are easy ways to freshen up your look!

If you’re new to hair colour then this trend is a great way to ease yourself into getting your hair coloured. But remember, those of you that are new to colouring or haven’t had your hair coloured at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Clinic in the past six months, it’s essential for you to book in for a quick patch test 48 hours before your colour appointment.

golden blondes, suzanne's hair salon, coventryWarm Blonde Hair Shades – Golden Highlights

Look like you’ve just come back from holiday all year long with some warm blonde highlights. To achieve this we use golden tones, honey hues, buttery blondes and caramel colours.

If you want this sun-kissed look, then ask your colourist to weave warm blonde highlights throughout your hair.

‘Bronde’ is what you get when you mix blonde and brunette together!
This shade puts warm brunette tones with golden blonde which is then applied as highlights or through the hand-painted balayage technique.

Balayage is where your colourist paints vertical strips of colour onto your hair to enhance your hairstyle and features. This creates a beautiful bespoke look!

natural ombre hair colours, best hair & beauty salon, coventryNatural Ombré Hair Shades

Ombré is big news this season, but especially if it’s soft and natural! 

To create an ombré look, we will gradually make your hair lighter from the mid-lengths to the ends. To make this look even better, ask for a mix of light and dark blonde shades.

Both balayage and ombré are great (especially if you’re new to hair colour) because they are low maintenance. This is because there isn’t any noticeable root growth, so you can leave longer between visits to the salon. But, to keep your blonde ends looking fresh, return every eight weeks for a toner.

Be a bronzed, brunette babe this year by adding some slightly red-toned highlights throughout your hair.
Talk to your colour specialist about what look you want to achieve, and if you’re not sure then they can give you some advice.

A general rule for highlights is the thicker they are, the more noticeable they will be. So, for a soft and subtle look, opt for fine highlights.

7 Tips For Healthier Skin

2. Protect Your Skin From The Sun

Exposure to the sun’s UV rays is the leading cause of premature skin ageing so it’s vital you wear a high SPF sun cream ever in the cooler autumn and winter months.

3. Eat A Well Balanced Diet 

If you want glossy hair and glowing skin, it’s time to start eating more healthily.  Skin-loving nutrients include:

Vitamin A – Helps maintain healthy, smooth skin and healthy hair. Add some carrots and sweet potatoes to your diet.

Riboflavin (B2) – Helps prevent skin disorders, especially around the nose, lips and mouth. Think spinach, mushrooms, milk products, liver and eggs.

Niacin (B3) – Helps prevent skin disorders such as sun spots and pigmentation). It also improves hydration and skin barrier function. We’re talking peanuts, white meats, fish, mushrooms and potatoes.

Vitamin B6 – Helps prevent skin disorders and cracks around the mouth.  Add fish, liver, potatoes and fruit (but not citrus fruit) to your shopping list.

Vitamin C – Helps to heal the skin and boost collagen production. Good sources include oranges and other citrus fruits, kiwi, mango, broccoli and green peas.

Vitamin D – Helps keep skin and bones healthy. Try tuna, mackerel, and salmon, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks.

4. Hydrate Your Skin 

If your skin is dry, this may prevent the skin cells from receiving the right amount of nutrients.  So keep your skin hydrated with a regular facial at Suzanne’s Beauty Salon in Coventry, and invest in a high quality day and night moisturiser.  Avoid soaps which are going to dry out your skin. 

5. Hydrate Your Body

Keep your body performing well – and your skin less dry – by drinking plenty of water.  There are no official recommendations for how much you should drink, but most nutritionists will suggest at least 8 glasses of water a day.

6. Stop Smoking

Smoking causes your skin to age.  It increase the breakdown of collagen in our skin and constricts blood vessels which can lead to unhealthy, wrinkled and sallow looking skin.  Smokers also tend to develop lines around their lips from the constant sucking on the cigarette.    We are sure you are already aware also of the increased risk of oral cancers, lung and other cancers, plus risk of respiratory diseases caused by smoking.  

7.  Cut Down On Alcohol

Cut back on the alcohol if you want to look younger for longer!  When you drink excessive amounts of alcohol, your blood vessels enlarge which can give your cheeks a flushed look, which may become permanent over time.  Alcohol also depletes the amount of Vitamin C in our bodies, which can lead to premature skin aging.  Heavy drinking can also increase your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels, both of which are major risk factors for heart attacks and strokes. Long-term alcohol misuse can weaken your immune system, making you more vulnerable to serious infections.
