Happy Christmas Eve! We hope you’re having a great one wherever you are.

During the holidays we can all be guilty of eating/drinking/partying a bit too much. And all the cold weather, socialising and indulgence can take its toll on our hair and skin.

Here are our top hair and beauty tips for the festive season to keep you looking your best all the way into the new year…


Beauty is only skin deep
The first thing that the cold weather, lack of sleep and a few too many glasses of wine can attack is our skin. Make sure to exfoliate your lips and to keep your skin moisturised during the colder months.

 

The Hydra Floral collection from Decléor is one of our go-to products to keep skin moist and hydrated during the day.

Remember that you can always get a free face map at Millimetre Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green to find out more about your skin needs.


Put your best foot forward
Cosy socks and winter boots are perfect for the chilly weather but we sometimes neglect our toenails until we have to pop on our party shoes.

Get a SPA Pedicure at any of our Millimetre Beauty Salons to finish your Christmas party look. Book now at our Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green salons – and you can choose from normal or gel polish too.


Keep those locks glossy
Make sure you keep your hair shiny with a replenishing and nourishing hair mask.T

Apply a hair mask to freshly washed and towel-dried hair twice a week during extreme cold weather. Massage the mask to spread it evenly on the length of your hair all the way to the tips but remember, never on the roots. Rinse and style as desired!

The Pureology Hydrate mask is perfect for providing locks with the right amount of hydration, without weighing it down.


 

All the products mentioned above are available at selected Millimetre salons – contact your local salon now to check availability.

Beautiful Hair

Your hair goes through a lot over the summer – heat, pollution, UV rays, sea salt and chlorine can all contribute to hair cuticle damage and promote split ends.

That’s why we’ve come up with our top tips to stop split ends in their tracks so that you can keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong…


System Professional Luxe Oil RangeLeave it in
Use plenty of conditioner when washing your hair – it’s essential to closing the cuticle after shampooing and keeping your hair sleek.

Invest in a decent leave-in hair oil or a nourishing hair mask to really boost that shine. We would recommend System Professional’s Luxe Oil which is also a heat protector and can be used every day. You could also try the System Professional Keratin Restore Mask once a week to keep split ends at bay.


Turn down the heat
We know it’s hard to put down that hairdryer when you’re rushing out to work in the morning but laying off the styling tools will really help your hair to repair and grow.

Try washing your hair the night before and putting them into loose braids to avoid damage and bypass the hairdryer and curling iron the following morning.


Tangle Teezer

Brush with care
Not dealing with tangles correctly and brushing your hair when it’s wet are two surefire ways to cause more damage to your hair.

When brushing our tangly hair make sure you brush down starting at the ends of your hair and making your way up to the roots. It will prevent hair breakage and also reduce damage to the scalp.

If you have to brush your hair while wet, make sure you use a Tangle Teezer to ensure that you are not snapping the hair cuticle. You can pick one up at your local Mm salon or ask your stylist for more info.


Hair CutGo for the chop
When getting your hair trimmed, ask your stylist to cut about one and a half inches above your split ends. This will remove any damage and allow your hair to grow in healthy and sleek.

If you follow the steps above you should find yourself having to take less and less off each time as your split ends reduce.
