Hair is wonderful stuff! What looks so simple from the outside is created like ropes or cables woven together when looked at microscopically. These cables, made mainly of keratin are held together with bonds, or links between the cables. There are several different types of bond keeping the protofibril cables together, some are weaker like the hydrogen bonds, and some are stronger like ionic bonds and sulphur bridges. manipulating these bonds is how the hair can be shaped in chemical treatments like perming. So how important are these bonds? At the end of the day they are key in keeping the hair looking at its best. We are talking about that strong hair with healthy shin and vibrancy. Without good bonds you get limp lacklustre hair with split ends and other damage. This is why at Yazz Number one, we use the Bond Untim8 system from Matrix. Bond Ultim8 prevents bond breakage during chemical hair process and protects the bonds over time. Protect bonds with 8 benefits in 1. Helps protect bonds during lightening Maintains expected lift No reformulation needed No additional time needed Helps prevent hair breakage Helps preserve hair fibers Deeply nourishes Hair looks healthier So when you are … Continue reading

Gents: want to try something new this year? The good news is there isn’t a ‘one style fits all’ approach to hair this year; there are loads of new trends in cut and colour to choose from. And of course, here at Yazz Hair Leeds, our stylists can help you achieve them! From the traditional ‘short, back and sides’ to something that little bit different, we have the know-how to transform your look. We’ll always advise you on the best cut and colour for you, too. True, you might want to keep current trends in mind, but what works or one person’s face shape might not work for another. That said, let’s take have a look at some of the haircuts doing the rounds so far in 2017… The Short Back and Sides – We’ve mentioned it already and it’s with good reason: the short back and sides is here to say.
