Happy New Year!

New Year can only mean one thing!

Time for a new start, a refresh and even a daring new image.

With so many exciting hair styles and colours, sometimes it is hard to know what will suit you and your lifestyle.

Here at Lucia Hair and Beauty we offer a free colour consultation where we are happy to discus and listen to your colour requirements and help choose which colours and colouring techniques will work best for you

We will also carry out any skin testing and hair strand testing to ensure that we can achieve the perfect colour for you

We use a wide range of loreal professionals hair colouring ranges and glazers and lighteners to ensure there is a colour fit for everyone

Need some inspiration here are some of our favourite colour changes from 2017.


Corrie pictured above had been debating her hair colour and style for some time, after visiting the salon and a full colour consultation carried out with Lucia, it was agreed that a bright bold colour was perfect for the new image corrie wanted

Skin testing and hair strand testing were carried out at the colour consultation appointment.

Corrie’s transformation was achieve using L’Oréal professionals Majirel and Majirouge colour range, these wonderful reformulated colours are designed to keep colour bright and long lasting, with the added benefit of L’Oréal professionals smart bond re bonding system Corrie’s hair felt hair strong, soft and shiny throughout the colouring process, L’Oréal smart bond is a proven re bonding system and was mentioned in the good housekeeping magazine in the February 2017 issue.

Corrie’s hair was then restyled in to a fashionable lob length, which removed previously damaged hair and gave Corrie a Sharp shape which suited and flattered her face shape.

We recommended to maintain the effects of smart bond re-bonding treatment at home that Corrie used the L’Oréal smart bond stage 3 conditioner, this protects and durably strengthens for stronger hair fibres.

This is applied to towel dried hair before shampooing and is massaged throughout the hair, this is left in the hair for 10-15 minutes. Hair can then be shampooed and conditioned as normal.

Purchase Smart Bond stage 3 conditioner for only £15 in salon.

Corrie left the salon delighted with her new bold hair style and colour.



Anna pictured above wanted to achieve a subtle colour effect with a minimal demarcation line, meaning the colour grows out without leave a harsh line and is less maintenance for Anna at home.

After a full colour consultation with Lucia, a Balayage technique with a few fine baby lights was agreed, Anna explained that she desired a warm blonde colour to keep the look natural

A lightening blonde colourant by L’Oréal professional was applied using the Balayage technique, a technique that has become very popular in 2017, Balayage is a subtle way of adding lightened strands throughout the hair. Lightening product is applied generously to the mid lengths and ends of the hair and blended up towards the root area, this provides a sun kissed effect and no harsh demarcation line when hair grows down.

Lucia hair and beauty’s True Blue shampoo was used on Anna’s hair, this is a toning shampoo which is rich purple in tone and helps to remove unwanted warm tones throughout the hair, leaving hair with a truer ash tone and a beautiful shine.

Anna was recommended to use Lucia True Blue shampoo once a week to maintain her new hair colour.

True blue shampoo is applied in the same manner in which a standard shampoo is, when the second application of true blue shampoo is applied it is left in the hair for 3-5 minutes before rinsing and applying your conditioner.

Anna’s hair was then styled to the required finished look, anna left the salon feeling refreshed for the New Year and very pleased with her new image.
