Men’s Hair: Summer’s Hottest Looks

When it comes to Men’s hair, generally one or two trends seem to dominate. This year, however, there appear to be no hard or fast rules as to what constitutes cool in the world of hair. Women are sporting everything from candy-coloured highlights, while anything from slicked-back 50s dos, to almost Jedward-like voluminous volume seems to be the in style for men. Of course, here at Yazz Hair we think you should only ever wear the style you feel most comfortable sporting; it’s not about following the trends, but embracing the looks that work for you. That said, if you’re looking for some inspiration, read on… The Retro ‘Swide Sweep’ – Here at Yazz No 1 Hair Studio, we style both men and women’s hair and we see a lot of cool hair dos from behind our hairdressing chair.

Beauty Tips for May 2015

I thought I’d write some tips for getting ready for summer…. Summer is a wonderful time of year, but the sun and heat can take a toll on your skin, hair, and body. That doesn’t mean you should stay indoors — with a little care and a few precautions, you can enjoy summer to its fullest. Tips for beautiful summer skin.. 1) Have a St Tropez spray tan Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are very damaging, especially UVA rays. They not only burn your skin and cause premature aging, but can also lead to skin cancer. So, instead of lying for hours in the sun, get that sun kissed glow with a St Tropez spray tan at £20…£10 for your first tan at Yazz beauty, 2) Slather on Sunscreen Many dermatologists recommend using a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. The Skin Cancer Foundation points out that tests demonstrated SPF 30 products block out only 4 percent more rays — 97 percent compared to 93 percent for SPF 15. So know that you’re getting more protection with SPF 30, but not double the amount of SPF 15.Here at Yazz beauty we recommend using Dermalogica … Continue reading
