Hair News: This month it's all about what's hot in the world of hair

Salon International 2019!

Oliver backstage with his amazing models at Salon International!

This weekend, Oliver featured on stage at Salon International which draws thousands of hairdressers from all around the Globe to see Hairdressers showcasing the latest looks in London at the famous Excel Centre.

Oliver created a collection of looks inspired by the big hair of the 80s. We posted some of the pictures on our instagram page this week, so you can check them out!

To create the volume in the hair, he used Great Lengths HairExtensions as recommended in Marie Claire and featured as the Winner of best Hair Extensions Brand 2019!

He also used Organic Colour to give the hair amazing shine and depth, without drying or damaging it.

To create more volume he used tecni art products by L’oreal. They give incredible results without clogging up the hair. We recommend nutrifier for heat protection and 6-Fix for hold without all the countless ingredients.
