The essential elements of a good hair cut

Our experienced stylists will take into account your face shape and the balance between your facial features, and then advise on styles of hair cuts and styling that would compliment you.

We use Clippers, razors and scissors to cut, texture and add volume – not only changing the shape of your hair, but also creating –

  • More volume – hair density and body
  • More Texture – feathered, chopped, smooth or blunt
  • And movement – smooth, curly, jagged or wavy

Smith & Smith stylists use some or all of these techniques for your hair cut on different parts of your head because the hair’s texture, direction of growth and volume will vary between your crown, nape, fringe and sides.

 Short cropped hair cut – very chic & sexy

From pixi cuts to dramatic crops and chops – the short hair cut is a big trend this year. If you have the right face-shape this can be one of the most flattering looks – but it needs precision cutting and the advice of an expert stylist!

Choose a hair cut and style that suits you

Thankfully, the days are gone when everyone wore the latest hair cut and style. The problem with ‘hair fashions’ is that they take no account of your individual style.

Fashion individuality now allows all of us to choose a hair cut and hairstyle that is both up-to-date and suitable for you.

Our experienced stylists will take into account the shape of your face, your features and advise on hairstyles and hair cuts that would compliment and improve – not just ‘fit in’ to a passing fashion.

Some body and facial features that require a more careful choice of hair cut and hairstyle –

  • a prominent nose can disguised with hair onto the face with graduated sides.
  • shorter necks need styling that adds width and extends the neck.
  • longer faces suit both soft waves or short textured cuts with extra width

Medium length hair – for the girl that likes variety

The beauty of mid-length hair is it’s versatility. With the right styling tools it can be worn completely straight or with a little work transformed into  sexy waves. Perfect for both a serious work-life and an even more serious party time.

The latest trends in hair styles

Below are a few of the current fashions in hairstyles, but the last few years has seen a change  from the one-size-fits-all look. Hair trends are now a lot more varied, meaning there is always a hair style to suit your face and lifestyle.

Blunt fringes have been a recent hair trend but we are now seeing a move towards softer side-swipe fringes that work well with the hair-ups and party dresses we all love to wear.

Film-star glamour is a very strong trend for the coming months classic hair styles appearing on lots of  fashion photo-shoots. Every kind of hair-up and ‘dressed’ hair is being promoted as being both flattering and very sexy.

Long hair – for classic formality or boho chic

One of the most popular hair fashion trends this year has been the relaxed hippy-meets-grunge of bohemian styling. With loose braids and unkempt weaves for a slightly disheveled and dreamy look. The long hair cut trend is here to stay.  Over the past few months this has been developing into more formal styling (perfect for parties) of buns, up-dos, beehives and more complex braids.
