Autumn Leaves from CanStockPhoto.com

In much the same way as we tend to update our wardrobe with the new season, many of us also overhaul our hair style. But whether you’ve gone for a brand new look or stuck with your trusted ‘do for a few months longer, there are a few fail-safe items you won’t want to neglect as we head into the cooler part of the year. To help you get through the back end of the year while maintaining smooth, glossy locks, we’ve put together a handy guide to some seasonal must-haves everyone will want to keep close by.

Long Hair Don’t Care? Looking After Lengthy Tresses the Easy Way

Long Hair Care from Yazz Number One, North Leeds.

The great thing about really long hair is it can require very little effort to look after – a quick wash and blow dry and you’re ready to go. But if you’ve recently had your style chopped into a bob or a mid-length ‘do, you’ll know that upkeep can be hard and maintaining your look takes time. That said, long hair does need regular trims, too. It’s easy to just let it keep growing and not notice the dry, drab ends. After all, if you’ve got longer hair you’re much more likely to tie it up out of the way to keep it looking tidy for work or school. So, how can you ensure long hair still looks at its best, even between trims? Here are some of Yazz Hair No 1 Studio Leeds’ top tips to keep your hair looking great. 1. Try Hair Oil – When you’ve got long hair, the tendency is to leave it a little longer between trims. What this means for you is that your ends may be a little drier than most people’s, which is where the trusty hair oil comes in. You can buy it relatively cheaply on the high street, but … Continue reading

Will You Suit a Bob? Ways to Wear the Look

Since the striking black bob Uma Thurman sported in Pulp Fiction some years ago, the style has taken centre stage in terms of fashion-forward hair looks. While the bob doesn’t always suit everyone, there’s certainly a way you can try the style without looking like you’ve endured the awful bowl cut of the 70s and 80s. Here’s some of our favourite looks of the last few years:   The Wob – The ‘wob’ (or wavy bob) has been all over the fashion magazines for some time now – and we reckon Jennifer Lawrence and her glamorous hairdo has something to do with it. Of course, this only works if your hair’s naturally curly. Otherwise, it’s going to take a lot of time with the curling tongs each morning before work. But in all, the wob offers a cool, effortless way to wear the look. After all, a sharp bob can often look too harsh against certain face shapes. The wob, however, is a style that works for most people. Fancy giving it a go yourself? Pick up the phone to us here at Yazz No 1 Hair Studio, Leeds and book in for a consultation. The Long Bob – If … Continue reading

Ombre Hair: How to Care for It

Care for your ombre hair with Yazz Number One Hair Salon, North Leeds

When you’re ready for a new hairstyle, there’s a tendency to book in for an appointment without thinking of the bigger picture. The fact is, you want a new look and you want it as soon as possible. You’ve no doubt spent hours scouring the newsagent’s fashion and hair magazines for inspiration – and you probably even spent longer in the salon chair. But did you consider the after care? Many styles – particularly those that have been coloured and chemically-treated – need quite a bit of attention, not just during your Yazz No 1 Hair, Leeds visit, but long after too. And if you’re one of the many fashion-forward ladies (or gents!) out there who’ve opted to go ombre, you’ll know it takes more than just a good conditioner to keep your locks looking great. With that in mind, here’s our top after care tips to ensure your ombre hair looks as glossy as it did the day you left the salon. 1. Wash Hair Less Frequently – Washing your hair too often – whether it’s been ombred or not – can strip it of its natural, moisturising oils. Try instead to get into the habit of washing it … Continue reading

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
