Want to switch up your blonde or natural greys and try something new that’s only temporary? 🌺

Why not ask for a pop of colour with a creative toning service? Go bold for summer, ask your stylist for more information.

The day is young, the sun is shining and #SelfStyledSunday is back with another PACKED day of inspiration and education for freelance hair pros💪⠀

The morning got underway with @clairechellhair of @francesco_group for @lorealpro @lorealpro_education_uki, who showcased a beautiful copper-toned blend using Dia Richesse. Claire also utilised the smash-hit product line Metal Detox, and explained how to use it to get the cleanest results and most efficient colour uptake.

Combining tonnes of expert tips on sectioning; optimum development times; creating root depth; and placement of colour interchanges to build contrast, Claire demonstrated how to create an ethereal, fluid look working with the cut and using steep diagonal sections. The goal? To produce a finish that looks just as great up and off the face as down.

Show the versatility of the technique and proving its adaptability across a whole range of clients, Claire also created a soft, iridescent, cool blonde using Majirel Glow shades, a bold green to red graduation using four interchanges and L’Oréal Professionnel’s Colourful Hair direct dye range, and a beautiful depth-enhancing lift on a level one base on a live model 👏⠀

Stay tuned here on our feed and Stories for further glimpses of guests from today’s SUPER informative #SelfStyledSunday! ⠀

✨ Friendly Reminder ✨

Living through the Covid-19 Pandemic and lockdown has had an unimaginable impact on all of our lives and our salons have felt this impact keenly.

Sadly, our salons have been experiencing a number of Late Cancellations and ‘No Show’ Appointments. This is unfortunate as once that appointment space has gone, they don’t have another opportunity to give it to someone who is patiently waiting to get booked in, with such little notice.

We understand that sometimes unexpected events occur that mean you need to rearrange your appointment. As such, we wanted to share a kindly reminder to please let your salon know if you are unable to attend your appointment and to advise you of our Cancellation Policy.

We request that all clients give at least 48 hours notice for Cancellations, so that salons have the opportunity to fill that appointment space. Our salons reserve the right to charge for appointments that are cancelled or unattended without notice.

If you have any questions relating to our cancellation policy, please do not hesitate to contact your local FG Salon. 😊

We want to thank you for your co-operation and patience through these times ✨

Let’s work together to revive our high streets once again!
