Why Should I Have Hair Extensions?

hair-extensions-salonHair extensions have come a long way since the early days when we’d hear horror stories about hair falling out, extensions being glued to the hair and scalp and hair ending up in a tangled mess after a good night’s sleep!

At Gavin Ashley Hairdressing in Bury St Edmunds we can deliver instant beautiful long hair using the very best hair extensions around.  In this article we explore why men and women choose to have hair extensions…

Add volume to thin hair with hair extensions

Balmain-Hair-Extensions-BlondeMen and women can achieve great results by investing in hair extensions.  Hair extensions can add volume to thinning hair which can give you a much-needed confidence boost.

Depending on the look you want to achieve, we can match your hair extensions to your natural hair colour and texture or we can add a contrasting or fashion colour.

Boost your hair colour with hair extensions

Balmain-Hair-ExtensionsWhether you want subtle highlights, a match to your existing colour, or a completely new hair colour, we have a great range of hair extension colours to choose from.

Classic shades include a variety of blacks, browns, reds, coppers and blondes which can be applied to your hair without causing any damage to your natural hair or scalp.

Added length with hair extensions

hair-extensionsPerhaps the most obvious reason to have hair extensions is to give your hair instant length.  Some people simply struggle to grow their hair beyond a certain length so revel in having long hair down to their waist.

Others may be growing their hair and find their locks at that ‘in-between’ stage.

While we can always find a hairstyle to suit your mid-length hair, you might simply want to jump straight to long hair by using extensions.

Enjoy having hair like your favourite celebrity!

Some celebrities seem to have the most amazing hair…but very often they have a little helping hand in the form of hair extensions (and an on-hand hair stylist!).

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Jennifer Aniston, Amanda Bynes, Paula Abdul and Paris Hilton have all had hair extensions at some stage in their lives…



5 reasons to go blonde!

Go blonde this summer

Do you fancy going blonde this summer?  We check out five gorgeous blonde colours to give you inspiration.  At Gavin Ashley Hairdressing in Bury St Edmunds we can create the most gorgeous Goldwell hair colours. Give us a call on 01284 754066 to book in for your colour transformation.

Platinum Blonde

One of the top hair colours for 2015 is platinum blonde – it’s a real head-turning hair colour. If you choose this icy white shade of blonde be prepared because it needs constant attention to keep it looking great. Keep your hair well moisturised, invest in regular trims and keep your regrowth in check!

Beach Blonde

Another hot trend is to have some sun-kissed highlights to lighten your overall hair colour.  We can run highlights uniformly throughout your hair or paint on some ‘babylights’ for a more natural look, with pretty blonde strands framing your face.

Strawberry Blonde

There is something very sweet about the strawberry blonde hair colour.  With a reddish hue, this blonde looks stunning if you are naturally fair, blonde or have red tones to your natural hair colour.  Choose an edgy texturised hair style if you want to steer away from the innocence of this pretty colour.

Dark Caramel Blonde

Warm, rich caramel tones are perfect if you don’t want to go too light.  Ideal if you have dark, brown or fair hair, we can weave some gorgeous caramel or honey tones through your hair to give it a lift over the summer months.  The sun will ‘catch’ these highlights so your hair will look gorgeous in different lights.


Ombre hair shows no signs of diminishing in popularity.  By skillfully blending two or more colours together we can create a wide range of ombre looks.  Maybe you want your hair colour graduating from dark at the roots to lighter at the ends, or you’d prefer we added some fashion colours to the ends, or maybe opt for a reverse ombre where the colour is lighter at the roots.  Whatever your desire, let the team at Gavin Ashley hair salon in Bury St Edmunds transform your hair this Summer.
