Get Serious Brow-Power with the Laura Leigh Definition Brow

EYEBROWS 1Do you dream of envy-inducing eyebrows from noon til’ night? Look no further than the Laura Leigh Definition Brow – our unique brow shaping system, available right here at the dedicated Brow Bar of our Cheltenham-based salon.

Based around an innovate 4-step system, the Laura Leigh Definition Brow looks at your face shape, skin tone and brow health to establish the best brow shape for you. Firstly, we’ll tint the brow in a colour best-suited to your skin tone and natural hair colour, working to add thickness and dimension to your brows by highlighting all of the hair in your brow area- including any wispy blondes. Then, we’ll wax beneath and above the brow to create your brow shape using our precision Lycon wax; a virtually pain-free waxing system that works excellently on short hair, leaving your skin feeling preened, pampered and painless. Next, we’ll tweezer and trim any strays, ensuring your perfect brow is achieved.

The Laura Leigh Definition Brow is perfect for brows of all shapes and sizes – simply pop in to our Brow Bar at the Laura Leigh Hair & Beauty Cheltenham salon to find out more!

All You Need to Know About Protecting Your Hair This Summer

Kerastase SoleilThanks to the glorious heatwave we’re currently experiencing on UK shores, we can be pretty sure that summer is well and truly here! Whilst most of us are pretty good at remembering to look after our skin when the summer sun sets in by regularly topping up our sun tan lotion, but it can be all to easy to neglect our locks with the same level of protection; something that’s vital to maintain hair health and vibrancy during the hotter summer months.

To explain why, Kérastase National Education Manager, Donna Paterson, here talks about why hair protection is so important in the sun, and why their Soleil collection – available here at Laura Leigh Hair & Beauty- is the perfect remedy:

“During the summer months we spend more time outdoors, whether on holiday at the beach or at home. During this time our hair is exposed to even more salt, chlorine, pollutants, and sun damage. We often forget about protecting our hair but just like our skin, we should be protecting our hair from the damaging sun rays. The Kérastase Soleil range is the perfect hair care range to allow you to enjoy your summer months whilst protecting your hair from the damaging effects of the sun. This hair care range also offers an anti-frizz effect with shine and detangling for beautiful summer hair.”

We love the Kérastase Soleil collection here at the salon and see it as a must-pack for any summer holiday you have planned. Containing state-of-art technologies developed by the expertise of the advanced L’Oréal Laboratories, the Soleil collection works to protect your hair’s health and sheen before, during and after sun exposure – no matter what your hair type.

In addition to the post sun repairing shampoo Bain Après Soleil and hair mask Masque UV Defense Active, the Soleil range also features two leave in, day protection products; the Micro-Voile Protecteur and Aqua-Seal that fit perfectly in your handbag or beach bag, as well as a CC Crème. So, no matter where you’re headed this summer, whether it be the beaches of Ibiza or the hot, humid streets of New York, you can be sure that your hair won’t feel the heat; leaving your locks picture-perfect all day.

The full Kérastase Soleil collection is available to purchase here in the salon – simply pop in to find out more, or talk to your stylist during your next appointment.

Nadine Celebrates 10 Years at Laura Leigh Hair & Beauty!


Nadine-cropped-B&W_0070Last week was a very special week, as we celebrated a huge milestone with our Senior Colour Specialist Nadine who’s now been with us a whopping 10 years!

An incredibly valued member of our senior team, Nadine has grown from strength to strength during her decade with us here in the salon, developing into the talented Colour Specialist that she is today. Starting work with us as an apprentice at the tender age of 16, Nadine learned the skilled arts of cutting and colouring before deciding that colour was where her passion lay. Specialising in colouring, her talents have led to her developing a large and loyal client base who see her regularly to create the colour of their dreams and she has since diversified into the world of hair extensions to become our resident hair extension and filler specialist.

Her time with us has been filled with awards and accolades and we’re very proud to say that Nadine is currently completing her L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Degree; the highest accolade awarded to a colour specialist in the industry. She also works tirelessly with other members of the team to help each and every member develop their own hairdressing skills; an invaluable asset that we’re very grateful for.

We want to thank Nadine for her amazing level of service, fantastic hairdressing skills and wonderful personality over these past 10 years; the salon simply wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Get the Volume of Your Dreams With Our Hair Filler Service

Hair Fillers 1LowResFavoured by A-listers the world over, Hair Fillers are the new must-have method of adding lasting volume to your locks, and we’re so excited to announce that the service is now available right here in our Cheltenham hair salon.

Perfect for adding natural looking body and bounce, hair fillers suit a range of styles and lengths; ideal for adding volume in areas where your hair may not be quite as thick as you like. Whilst their chief purpose is to add bounce to your locks, they can also be used to add length (like classic hair extensions) or an entirely new style; helping you achieve the hair of your dreams.

Hair fillers are strands of natural hair that are expertly colour-matched and bonded to your own. Unlike classic hair extensions, hair fillers are applied in a finer amount in the areas you need it the most; meaning no extra tension is placed on the shaft of your hair. No thick, heavy hair pulling and damaging your own- just delicate strands expertly applied with keratin glue to give you an impressive volume boost that lasts for up to four months.

At Laura Leigh, our Hair Filler specialists Laura, Nadine and Jack are on hand to talk you through exactly what these volume-boosters can do for you. Our appointments start with a hair and scalp consultation, where we’ll assess the health and strength of your hair and exactly how hair fillers could benefit you, advising on the best style to go for. Then, we’ll source high-quality natural hair expertly matched to your colour and strand texture, and get to work bonding them to your hair to achieve the perfect look for you. Rest assured, you needn’t be stuck to the salon chair all day… our hair filler appointments can take as little as 1-2 hours, leaving you with plenty of time in the day to show off your big, bouncy new locks!

This Season’s Hottest Nail Trends

NailShot2Perfectly pampered nails are one of the greatest accessories to any outfit and our Nail Bar in Cheltenham is here to ensure you can achieve just that; beautifully manicured nails that will last and last, no matter what the occasion. We’ve got a fantastic range of Essie gel and fashion polishes to suit whatever your style, including a variety of beautiful new shades for Spring/Summer 17.

To ensure your talons are on-trend at all times, we’ve revealed which nail shades are the hottest in town this season – best of all, they’re all available right here in the Laura Leigh Hair & Beauty Nail Bar, in our luxurious Cheltenham salon.

Modern Metallics - Just like this year’s hottest hair colours, beautiful bronzes and shimmering metallics are all the rage when it comes to nails. The perfect way to add a touch of glamour to your everyday look, golds and bronzes work beautifully with warmer skin tones; whilst sleek silvers look great on those with fairer skin.

Nearly Nudes- Barely-there nails are once again hugely popular this year, going well with the ‘Nude Blonde’ hair colours we’ve seen on Fashion Week catwalks around the world. Designed to offer a subtle yet perfect sheen to your nails, these subtle colours are designed to complement your skin tone and offer a polished look without it being too bold. Try a warm nude-pink for lighter skin tones, or a more daring nude-beige if you have a darker or more olive complexion.

It’s All White- For a modern look that goes with any outfit, try a statement white; perfect for achieving on-trend nails without the worry of colour-clashing. Great for all skin tones, solid white nails offer an understated-cool look, best applied as a gel to keep them looking perfectly preened.

Cool Coral- Nothing says summer better than bright, bold tropicals and coral is this season’s must-have shade. Great for all skin tones, the warmth of coral offers a great accessory to any outfit; it works great on your toes, too.

Deep Blue Hues- For a statement nail that’s bang on trend this summer, head for the blues- specifically deep navies and regal royals. Guaranteed to get your nails noticed, these holiday-ready shades will give you a memorable look that pairs brilliant with lighter summer shades of clothing.

Want to get your nails bang on trend? Our Nail Bar in the Clarence Street salon offers a wide range of services, from pampering manicures and pedicures, to long-lasting gels. To book an appointment, visit our Online Booking page or give the Front of House team a call on 01242 530598.
