Whether you’re heading back to school, college or uni, no doubt you’ll want to wow your mates with a fabulous new ‘do.

A Girly Bun

You can’t go wrong with a girly bun! Perfect if you’re very active as you can simply whip your hair into a quick bun and you are ready to go. For a more intricate upstyle – maybe for a prom, party or social – book in for a cool updo at our hair salon in Loughborough.

Barely-There Waves

There is something sexy as well as romantic about tousled barely-there waves. These can be achieved with the use of some styling mousse and a bit of scrunching – the messier the better! More structured waves also look great but can take longer to achieve (use your heated styling wand or straighteners to achieve a relaxed wavy hairstyle).


Sure, you might feel like you’re back in primary school again but, trust us, braided hairstyles are all the rage right now. Dutch braids, fishtail braids and halo braids are great looks and can be as messy or as prim and proper as you like! (LINK TO BRAIDS ARTICLE)

Rainbow Colours for Hair

Fancy reinventing you? Banish your mousy hair colour right now and opt for a sensational hair colour at Smith & Smith hair salon in Loughborough instead! We offer every hair colour under the rainbow and can talk you through the process, assess your hair, and come up with a colour that suits you. Bear in mind, of course, that hair colour does require some up-keep so if you cannot afford to keep your colour looking vibrant, talk to your friendly colour technician about some semi-permanent hair colour alternatives.
