Need a change? Go to the hairdresser

13 February 2020

It was interesting reading a recent interview with daytime TV star – Lorraine Kelly.  A key tip from the many years presenting her popular morning show was this – if you need a change, go to the hairdresser.  Why consider a hair makeover?  Well here’s what Lorraine had to say…

When we do makeovers on the show, it’s the haircut that makes women look younger and have more confidence said Lorraine.

Why a hair makeover makes sense

Over the years we’ve helped so many people achieve the transformation they want.  The effect this has often goes way beyond their appearance.  In many cases, a hair makeover made them happier with themselves, more confident and gave their self-esteem a real boost.

And when you have all these wonderful, positive emotions flooding around your body, you sometimes take other positive steps and achieve things you previously thought were unreachable.

 Why our longer appointments are perfect for hair makeovers and transformations

Another example of happy hair makeoverAt the Melissa Timperley Salon we tend to have appointments that are longer than any other salon we know. We feel this is necessary to create a ‘wow’ experience for each of our clients, and to treat everyone who visits us with the same level of attention and individual courtesy.

One of the key things we do is to build in a consultation to each appointment. This gives the opportunity to really understand:

  • What you want
  • Your hair type and styling preferences
  • Your facial features, tone and wardrobe your new style needs to work with
  • Your daily routine, so you can easily create the style at home and it works with everything else you do in the day

Treat, don’t test yourself for a transformation

So instead of testing, restricting or forcing yourself to do something which requires perseverance or deprivation to bring you a new look, why not treat yourself instead?

The positive outcome you seek can be one that happens far more quickly,  is sustainable and even motivates you to do other great things in your life.
