How often should I visit the salon?

Clients often ask  us’ how often should I visit? or ‘how long should I leave it until my next cut/colour? The answer to this question can differ from person to person and obviously depend on the individuals hairdressing budget , however,  there are certain guidelines that should be followed to keep your hair looking its best at all times.  Here’s a guide to help you get the most out of your hair style and colour..

 

Root Retouch Colour Appointments

There’s so many colouring trends available now but as a rule if you have a full head colour then your roots will be growing back through around 4 to 5 weeks. If might differ slightly depending on how different your natural root colour is compared to the colour applied, but those pesky greys can be really visible on brunette and red/copper colours so 4 weekly visits in a must for you. For those of you that are coloured blonde then 4 weeks is an absolute must for you lovely ladies I’m afraid.  In fact, blonde hair is high maintenance so leaving it any longer than that and it will start to look dull and in need of brightening and freshening up.

Balyage Appointments

This colour technique is slightly more low maintenance due to the nature of the stretched root effect. You roots wont be too noticeable( depending on how close to your natural colour the root stretch is) but your ends might be in need of a toner. Generally you could  get away with 6-7 weeks visits

Foil Highlight Appointments

These are the lower maintenance colouring technique due to the highlighted strands blending with your natural colour especially if you have a couple of colours running through and can usually get away with 12 weekly appointments, you should however visit in between, around 6 weeks for a Cut & Finish. You could always have a toner to freshen through your blonde on this visit too.

Semi-Permanent Appointments

Again this is a low maintenance colouring choice because semi colours last around 25 washes and fade during this time leaving you with very little regrowth if any at all. If you go for a vibrant semi- colour then this will fade slightly quicker and be in need of freshening up slightly more often but you can get away with having one every time you visit for your Reshape & Finish appointment around 4-6 weeks.

Reshape & Finish

This one is easy……..short hair styles is a definite 4 to 5 weekly visit. short styles are structured and need to be kept on top off to stay looking sharp and tidy. The same goes for bob hairstyles, As for those of you with long hair, well you all know you leave it way too long to visit. We know your long locks are precious to you but those scary split ends will just split way up the hair shaft if you leave it too long and then we have to cut more off to get rid of them. Try not to leave it any longer than 6- 7 weeks and use split ens cream or oils in between to help keep the split ends at bay.

 

Taking all this into account then to keep on top of your style and colour you need to visit the salon every 4-6 weeks.  Any thing over 7 weeks is too long.  We always recommend making at least your next 2 or 3 appointments before leaving the salon this way you can pop them in your diary and get on enjoying life. We will send you your appointment reminder text the week before your visit.

 

If you haven’t already got your visit booked then please call us now on 01384 402890 or book on-line via the Book online link at the top of this page. Your Stylist can discuss a maintenance plan with you on your next visit.

 

We very much look forward to seeing you in the salon soon XX

We made the finals!

Caprio's Great Lengths extensionists and their models

Caprio’s Great Lengths extensionists and their models-(From left to right) Adele, Ellis, Courtney, Katie, Jo, Alyssia

I’m soooo excited to share the fabulous news……….WE MADE THE FINALS! Yep, our hard work and creative talent has once again been recognised by the judges of the Great Lengths Awards 2016/17. This year we’ve made it into the finals of two catagories, ‘Gold salon of the year’ and ‘Classic Volume’. We’ve been preparing our entries since the beginning of the year, organising a photo-shoot, selecting models and gowns and putting together our business entries. It’s been hard work but such good fun too. The winners will be announced during a red carpet event on Sunday 18th September.

 CLICK HERE to watch our photo-shoot video 

Directing our In-salon photo-shoot was very exciting and nerve racking at the same time. Its a long non stop day starting early and finishing worn out. Our professional photographer, David Peters,  helped us to produce some fabulous images, in fact we’ve got over 500 images so you can imagine the selection process wasn’t easy either. Now all that’s left to do is attend the Award Ceremony. It’s team Caprio’s turn to wear the posh frocks, perfect our make-up , let our hair down with dining, eating,drinking and of course celebrating getting this far by dancing into the early hours. Share the evening with us by following us on facebook, Instagram and twitter where we’ll keep posting throughout the evening. Fingers crossed for us X

With thanks to Dave Peters- DP Digital Photography LTD,  Make-up artists Katie wood and Lydia Dent, Vicki Lee for suppling the gowns and of course the Caprio’s Team of extentionists and the remainder of the team for putting up with us over the last few months X

Fingers crossed for us !

Creative Colouring at Caprio’s Hair Studio

20160312_204112
20160312_204420 20160312_204823 20160312_205555Spring is finally in the air, the daffodils are blooming, the sun is popping its hat on every now and again and its daylight when the alarm clock goes off in the morning….finally!

We advertised for colour models recently so the team at Caprio’s could unleash their creative colouring skills to bring pretty spring colours to life in hair. Stunning purples, lilacs, pretty pinks and blush tones, the very much saught after grey, vibrant magenta, oranges and indigo. Now these colours aren’t to every bodies taste and might sound a little too daring for some of you but as you’ll see from the images they work so well and even the most faint-hearted could get away with these beautiful colour pallets.

Matrix Colour lacquer is a true semi permanent colour so depending what shampoo & conditioner  you use and how porous the hair then they can last anything from 4 to 12 washes, which is great because the colours will fade to a paler tone without leaving a root regrowth. This enables you to be versatile and change the colour you choose each time its re-coloured. Our aim for these colours was  richer colour at the roots to paler softer tones towards the ends, or vice versa, pretty much similar to the current Ombre trend. The hair was left feeling silky soft and shiny.  We’re pleased with the results as were all our models and cant wait to unleash our creative colouring skills for this seasons jaw dropping head turning pastel hair colours.

 

All the colours you see have been created using Matrix colours, the expertise of the Caprio’s team and our Matrix Educator. Check out our creations, if you see something you fancy then call us on 01384402890 to book your colour consultation.

great lengths for post 2

 

Take a look at some more of our extension creations. Most of our creations are posted on our salon Facebook page for all to see. Being able to transform clients hair from short to long, fine to thick is so rewarding. Applying great,  natural, virtually undetectable extensions is a skill and one that takes time and attention to detail by a great Stylist with a passion for perfection. Having thicker, fuller hair can make some ladies feel more glamorous, more polished and simply just happier in their own skin.   Having a job that makes people feel happier is just great.
