Lifestyle & Fitness Habits for Healthy Hair

Ensuring your hair stays healthy is about far more than just the products you use.  Your lifestyle and fitness habits can have a significant impact on the condition and strength of your hair too.  Here are some fitness habits we should all take up in order to keep our hair in top condition.

Take Regular Exercise - Exercising regularly is the best way to maintain a healthy heart and good circulation, which can help improve the scalp’s blood flow.  This in turn aids in delivering essential nutrients to your hair follicles to keep hair strong and healthy, whilst promoting new growth.

Eat a Balanced Diet - Hair needs vitamins and minerals in order to grow strong and healthy.  Lack of essential minerals can cause conditions which lead to hair loss.  Ensure your diet includes plenty of natural sources of iron, such as red meat, eggs and leafy green vegetables, as well as plenty of protein and fresh fruit and vegetables.

Get Some Shut-eye – Lack of sleep can lead to elevated stress levels, which could cause thinning hair or hair loss.  Aim for between six to nine hours a night to ensure you feel your best.

Reduce your stress levels - Everyday stress is as much a factor as significant life events, and reducing your stress levels can help to protect you against hair loss conditions. Unwind with relaxation techniques or try gentle, regular exercise which is proven to help reduce stress levels.

Continuing to define hair trends season after season, the Harrison Hair Studio Team consistently raise the bar when it comes to industry standards, always creating fashion-forward hair, inspiring beauty buffs nationwide, earning the reputation as a leader in the hair industry. With several shows confirmed for July’s British Style Collective at St Georges Hall, this season is set to be one of Harrison Hair Studio’s busiest, supporting a vast array of talented and diverse designers, including Philip Armstrong, David Ferreira, Sorapol and Edeline Lee, leaving no doubt about Harrison Hair Studio’s commitment to fashion’s finest.

Always with their fingers on the fashion-pulse, the Harrison Hair Studio Team will be exclusively revealing backstage news and gossip as it happens, and giving insights about hair trends for Autumn/Winter 2017 via social media @HHSLiverpool and #HHSLiverpool.

The event, which was previously held in Birmingham, will be coming to Liverpool for the first time this year and is being spread across four of Liverpool’s iconic buildings.

Visitors can expect a immersive shopping experience as River Island, Oasis, Elemis, Monsoon and Accessorize will join a line-up of more than 300 high-street, online and boutique brands in Exhibition Centre Liverpool.

Additionally, the city’s hit music station Capital Liverpool will host two performances of the iconic Alcatel Fashion Arena each day at the Echo Arena.

If you’re a lover of all things designer, you are encouraged to head to St George’s Hall, where you can shop must-have designer collections, witness creative hair from Harrison Hair Studio in the designer catwalk shows from London based designer Sorapol and Liverpool’s very own Philip Armstrong, and enjoy intimate ‘audiences with’ some of the most recognised names of the fashion and beauty industry.

The arena will also showcase the hottest looks on the high-street this summer in a dedicated trends report brought to you by Liverpool ONE, where you can then shop the looks straight from the catwalk.

Furthermore, guests are also welcomed to celebrate the very best in vintage fashion at Albert Dock, featuring fiercely independent designer makers, street food vendors, vintage traders and performers.

Experts on hand include Hilary Alexander OBE, Antonia O’Brien and Glamour magazine’s editor Jo Elvin.

Lastly, guests also have the opportunity to attend a pop-up event taking over the Baltic Triangle on Friday July 7, to visit the Creative Hub to take part in interactive workshops for students, as well as unveil the next generation of ‘ones to watch’ in fashion design, photography, journalism, art and film.

Leanda's smartbond experiment

IMG_0378.JPG

We have been wanting to try this experiment ever since we were introduced this amazing new product to the salon a couple of month ago, we did this purely to show our clients the benefits and importance of keeping your hair in a peak condition through any colouring process.

This picture above shows a prime example of how smartbond works on your hair. On the left side shows a strand test, lifted with blue bleach with a 30 vol peroxide with smartbond added and on the right side, lifted exactly the same but without smartbond.  I think you will agree the results are amazing!  Smartbond can be added to colour or it can also be used on it's own as a treatment.

You can also see some more results on our before and after style page... CLICK HERE

At Harrison Hair Studio Liverpool we pride ourselves in creating timeless styles with a an aim to keep every clients hair in the best condition we possibly can.

PamperPad Awards 2017

best-hair-salon-liverpool

We dedicated this award to YOU, our clients!

BEST HAIR SALON IN MERSEYSIDE 2017

I hope this doesn't sound presumptuous but even before learning of this accolade we knew we where in with a great chance of winning this award.  Not because we think we our great or anything along those lines and far from it but because we had the pleasure of going home night after night and reading the reviews you guys where posting on the PamperPad website.  They where touching to say the least, some brought me to tears and made me feel so proud of all the work the HHS team and I do.

We have won some major awards in the past through our skill and technique, they are special but they are based on one style, one colour, one cut, one event and it's got to be what the judges are looking for on that one night.  This award is different, special in so many different ways.  The dynamics means so much more to us as this is an award that sums up our day, our month, our year, our life and our relationship with all of you 'our friends', this is your award just as much as ours!

We haven't been told how many votes we got or how many votes we won by but PamperPad sent us an email to inform us of the result on Wednesday evening and it read...

"Hi Harrison Hair Studio!  We are writing to tell you that you have won the award for the best Hair Salon in Merseyside!  A massive congratulations!  Thank you so much for taking part – your clients clearly love you!" Haylee Benton, PamperPad CEO & Founder

To me that last sentence speaks volumes and says all that we need to know.  Between me and you I think we won it by a country mile because I don't think there's a salon out there that has anywhere near the amount of amazing clients as we do, we are so lucky to have all of you and we are so appreciative of this!

Here are some of my favourite quotes from your reviews x

 "HHS work incredibly hard to put the client at the centre of everything they do." Peter Reynolds 
"It has changed my life and given me my confidence back." Steph Harris 
"Fabulous cut and finish, amazing staff and brilliant customer service as usual. A lovely cup of coffee thrown in too and I'm a happy lady" Jane McGregor
"Excellent personal service every time. I have used Harrison's Hair Studio for years and wouldn't trust any other stylist." Karen FitzGerald

There are too many to mention them all but i'm that proud of them i'm going to start popping the odd one on the website pages.

Thank you all once again x

Well it's final here, "the Oscars of hairdressing," the 2016 L'Oreal Colour Trophy grand final! #lct16

Australia's Gain

It really pains me to announce this but we are soon to loose Mia as she will be jetting off to Australia in a couple of weeks!


Mia is one of longest standing members of staff and has been here through the highs and lows of HHS.  She is loved by everyone, she's hard working, loyal, honest and she'll be really missed by both clients, staff and also truly missed by the Harrison's, as she is like part of the family!


Mia is 24years old on Monday and all of us from the salon are going to London to celebrate her birthday with her and give her a good send off before she leaves us, plus we might go to the L'Oreal Colour Trophy awards if we can fit it in!!


Our loss is most definitely Australia's gain!

Good luck Mia xxx

In it to win it!

9 days to go until the biggest hairdressing competition in the world!  The L'Oreal Colour Trophy is the equivalent to the Oscars in the hairdressing world!

Harrison Hair Studio is the 1st Liverpool Salon to get to national final in the main award for over 10 years!  We will be representing the northwest along with 3 other salons with a 1 in 4 chance being named the overall northwest champion.  The overall NW champion will then have a 1 in 9 chance of becoming the National Champion!

The standard this year is so high we feel overwhelmed just getting to the national final but we will be giving it our all and we want to repay all the support from our clients, friends & family with a win!
