Make sure you book in with your skilled Gavin Ashley hair stylist for regular hair cuts to keep your hair looking perfect over the summer and to keep those split ends at bay.  It’s especially important to book in for a trim when you get back from holiday, to remove those beach frazzled ends.

Protect Your Hair From Harmful UV Rays

During the summer, our hair is exposed more than usually to the UV light, consider wearing a hat or a scarf to protect your locks from the sun and invest in a hair serum or spray with UV protection.

We also highly recommend using Redken Color Extend shampoo and conditioner which contains much needed UVA protection for your hair.

We Are Reducing Our Carbon Footprint at Gavin Ashley

At our Bury St Edmunds hair salon, we are continually striving to improve our services and help the environment.

A while back we introduced disposable towels which save water, energy and time. We have now installed a new infrared heater which uses less energy and is a more effective way to produce comfortable warmth. Better still it produces zero carbon emissions.

We have made your shampoo service even better! We want to deliver the best possible hair results when you visit our Bury St Edmunds salon, that’s why we have introduced new shower heads to all our back washes.

The Salon shower pro heads reduce water consumption by up to 47%. While special crystals in the heads make the water softer, eliminate metallic elements, lime deposits and chlorine in the water. These results will prolong the life of your colour and help balance the pH of your scalp.
