New Season ‘Autumn’

Are you ready for Autumn?

With autumn just around the corner there are many reasons why we can’t wait. Wrapping up in warm clothes, wondering when to turn the heating on. Getting dressed up for Halloween, whether for a night out or trick or treating. Cosy nights in, wrapped up watching movies. Bonfire night & fireworks. So much to look forward to…

Why not try something new?

Always wanted to try waxing, but never had the patience to grow your hair? Autumn is the ideal time to start, with jumpers, long sleeves & trousers it’s the perfect growing season and we all know that waxing is far better than shaving. During the Summer, many times you may have wanted to try it and succumbed to the razor on a hot day… Well now there is no excuse!

How about a pedicure? Your feet that you have exposed to flip flops all Summer with your nails always painted, have taken a battering underneath. Get your feet ready for Autumn & Winter with a luxury pedicure to soothe & soften. Bliss…

Fancy a change with your hair? Colour or Style?
Why not start the new season with our Autumn reds or copper tones created using a Balayage or Ombre technique or even tone the bright summer hair down and go for a soft caramel/brown ready for autumn?
Perhaps a nice big bouncy blowout to compliment the new colour choice or even just for a night out over the party season?

Go on treat yourself… New Season New You!

Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend & How Dehydration isn’t! by Karen

Up to 60% of your body is made of water. From 10% content in body fat to 73% for the brain and 83% for the lungs. Water is needed for overall good health, every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to survive.

Your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste, and lubricate your joints.

A reasonable goal for most people to drink daily is 6 to 8 half pint glasses of water each day. If you are concerned that you are not drinking enough water, check your urine. If your urine is usually colourless or light yellow, you are well hydrated. If your urine is a dark yellow or amber colour, you are dehydrated. You lose water when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even breathe. You lose water even faster when the weather is really hot, when you are physically active, or if you have a fever.

What is the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin?

Dry skin lacks oil, dehydrated skin lacks moisture. When the face suffers with dehydration, it gets confused. It believes it is dry, proceeds to produce oil but the skin is thirsty & traps the oil under the skin. Blackheads become incredibly hard to remove. This can happen at any age so before you treat yourself or your child for spots & acne, DRINK MORE WATER!!

Just 2 weeks of drinking 6-8 glasses or more a day will improve your skin immensely, try hot water with half a lemon squeezed into it in the morning & maybe a cheeky half teaspoon of honey for the ultimate morning detox. Try making a large jug of filtered water with 3 lemons sliced, half a cucumber sliced & 10 leaves of fresh mint for a refreshing drink at any time of the day. Just leave in the fridge or decant to take to work. Or try herbal fruit teabags.

A common reason I hear as to why people can’t drink that much water in a day is that it makes them get up in the night too often!

Consider this… If you have a dried out plant that is wilting through lack of water & you pour water on it, most of it will just go straight through. BUT if you pour the same amount of water on a plant that is regularly watered hardly anything will run straight through. Just look at the plant I rescued from the salon the day I took it home and 3 weeks later!!! So once your body is hydrated, you will go to the toilet less!

After 2 weeks, treat your poor abused face to a microdermabrasion facial.

Diamond microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle procedure with no downtime, often referred to as the lunchtime facial. A diamond tipped wand is used on the skin for facial rejuvenation along with suction to exfoliate and sweep away the outer layer of debris & dead skin cells from the epidermis. Safe for use on all skin types from teenage to mature skin. Benefits include stimulating circulation & cell renewal, reducing fine lines & wrinkles, minimises appearance of large pores, refines skin texture & improves conditions such as clogged pores, acne, scarring & sun damage.

So drink lots of water & come and get a microdermabrasion facial with Karen our Holistic Beautician for £25 from the 1st August every Tuesday & Wednesday. That should give you time to drink that water!!! And we will show you what we get out of your skin 🙂 do.

Princess Diana, 20 years on

Many of us will be tuning in to ITV tonight to watch the 90 minute film to mar the 20th anniversary of her death.
Princess Diana born 1st July 1961 to John spencer and Frances Shand Kydd was born and raised in park house on the Sandringham estate. Her father gained the title of Earl Spencer in 1975 when Diana then became known as Lady Diana Spencer. 
In 1980 Ladi Di started working at London’s Young England Kindergarten where she worked as a nursery school assistant. She met her future husband in 1977 when he was dating her sister Lady Sarah. The couple announced their engagement to the world in february 1981 where Lady Diana was given the Sapphire ring by prince charles which has since been given to kate middleton by her now husband prince william. Just 5 months later on 29th June 1981 Lady Di and Prince charles married at St Paul’s Cathedral which was watched on screen by over 750 million people. During her marriage to Prince Charles Lady Di earned the title of Princess of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay ans Countess of Chester. They honeymooned on the Royal Yacht Britannia. On July 2nd Princess Diana gave birth to the couple’s 1st child William at St Mary’s hospital. Later on September 15th 1983 their second child was born, Another son, Prince Harry. Dianas marriage to her husband Prince Charles ended in divorce on 28th August 1997 after they announced their separation on 9th december 1992 due to alleged infidelity on both sides where Prince Charles admitted to his affair with his now wife Camilla Parker Bowles. 
After an almost 2 year relationship with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan in 1996 which ended in 1997 with both Diana and Hasnat claiming to have ended the relationship Diana then meet Dodi Fayed, son of Mohamed Al-Fayad, just one month after the break up. They holidayed together in Saint Tropez in july 1997.
As well has her busy private life Diana continued her work. She worked with AIDS victims and opened landmark Aids centre in london in the 1980s working alongside Nelson Mandela, She was also the patron of HALO trust an organisation that removes debris from landmines which had been left by the war. She also worked closely with the Royal Marsden Cancer trust and various other charities and welfares. 
On 31st August 1997 lady Diana was fatally injured in a car crash in the pont de l’alma alongside her current boyfriend Dodi Fayed and their driver Henri Paul. There was a huge debate of the cause of the crash with officials saying it was fault of their driver Henri as he was under the influence of alcohol but many believing that it was a set up by the MI16 and the Duke of Edinburgh.
Tonights program will see Dianas 2 sons Prince william and Prince Harry speak out about their mum along with other close friends and family included Sir Elton John. William and Harry tell their heartfelt story of the moment they learned about their mums death and spoke out about their life with their mum princess Diana.
 
Princess Diana was a huge style icon with her many hairstyles stealing the headlines especially that 1989 hair cut when Lady Di had her hair cut short leading many to follow in her footsteps!
Do you ever feel like you want a complete change? here at Guys N Dolls we can give you a complete haircut restyle for £35. Why not have a change of colour to complete the transformation. An all over tint with a restyle from just £70 or half a head of foils with a restyle from only £78!!! Be a style icon yourself with a new you!! 

The new £10 note has been unveiled!

The current paper £10 is the oldest bank of England design in circulation. The new polymer note began production last august and has already printed 275 million but and is set to hit our cash machine in September this year! the new ‘Jane Austen’ banknote is said to be smaller than the current £10 but larger than the new £5. It has been said that the new £20 will follow in 2020 but there is no plans to produce a new £50.
The reason we have seen the paper notes going out of circulation and being replaced with the new polymer notes is because they are said to be more durable, cleaner and more secure.
Here at Guys N Dolls we only use top of the range products but are constantly on the look for the new best thing on the market, but we will not scrimp on quality or performance. With products and treatments constantly improving we strive to offer you the best of the best!!
Even though the bank of England have decided to change everything about the £10 note, here at our salon we like to hold on to some good old trusted brands and favorites.
The hair colour we use here is multi award winning Wella. Wella was founded in 1880 by Franz Stroher, their head office is in Germany but they ship worldwide. They won total beauty awards in 2012 and in 2016 they won favorite lightener for foil highlights, favorite lightener for balayage and hand painted highlights!
Wella came from humble beginnings as did Carrie, owner of Guys N Doll. They both started off with a small business and have boomed over the years to become the successful striving business they are today!

Did you know…

The new polymer notes contain beef tallow which is a hardened fat from around the animal’s kidney, stomach and other organs!!
