Step by Step – The ‘Hayden’ Updo…

Here are my step by step tips on how to achieve the ultimate 40’s ‘Lock’ look! A great style for date night, classy work up-do or a wedding!


Step #ONE

Begin with clean, dry, tangle-free hair. If you have wavy or curly hair, run some straightening irons through it for a smoother sleeker look. Work a little mousse through your hair and tame any flyaway hair with a drop of anti-frizz serum before starting your chignon/bun.


Step #TWO

Take out a triangular section at the front to create the long sweeping fringe. Brush your hair back into a low side ponytail. It is best to have the fringe, on the same side as the ponytail like Hayden’s done.



Hold the base of the ponytail with one hand, and then split the tail into 2 pieces.  If your hair is quite thin then gently backcomb underneath the tails to add some volume. Starting with one half of the tail, roll it up towards the nape of the neck and secure with pins.  Repeat the action with the remaining tail of hair, until you have two identical rounded buns of hair.


Step #FOUR

To create the sweeping side fringe, dampen first with some mousse and then blow dry to the side. For the super shiny look like Hayden’s, be sure to add a few drops of serum over your hair and secure with a generous amount of a firm hold hairspray.


Step #FIVE

Finish off with glossy red lips and heavy black eyeliner for the ultimate 40’s look!

Do you have a question for our multi-award winning hair doctor?


Due to recent changes with health & safety guidance, we will now require a skin allergy test on every client who has:

  • Used Home Dye kits
  • Had COVID-19 since their last colour appointment
  • Never had a colour service with us before
  • Have a colour appointment coming up

Since the COVID-19 outbreak and further immunisations, there is potential that you could be more sensitive to certain ingredients and processes involved in professional salon colouring. These skin allergy tests are required 48hours before your appointment but no more than 5 days before. 

Failure to do this will unfortunately result in your appointment being rescheduled, which we of course don’t want after this long wait! We will not be able to perform a colour service if you have not had your allergy skin test recorded and checked by our team. 

We don't want to make this difficult, but our priority is your safety. To book in for your skin test when we are open, please book online.
