Ah Braids… there are so many ways you can wear them. The choice is yours: Rock braids in a sleek ponytail, wrapped around a topknot, or even tucked behind beachy waves. Second to weddings, Braids are up there with the most pinned boards. Braids are so versatile and perfect for those days when your hair really does need a wash but you’re short on time.
Take inspiration from your favourite celebrities to create these simple but gorgeous looks.
Emily Blunt has given the classic French plait a chic updo. Sophisticated and super stylish.
Channelling the free spirit in you, Mandy Moore’s tight wrap-around braids are positioned close to her hairline, with a soft twist of intentional messiness.
A festival chic look that almost broke the internet. We love Kate Bosworth’s backwards centre parting plait.

Professional Products we love… you love
Annabel one of our gorgeous guests at Garbo’s loves Sebastian Dark Oil as she has quite unruly hair. This is a wonder product that actually tames her locks, and helps her look stylish and sophisticated day in day out.
We love it because it’s a lightweight hair oil with a luxurious feel, to soften hair and add body. Dark Oil contains extracts of precious natural oils sandalwood and argan, giving it an incredible fragrance. It smooths the cuticle, adds body and disappears into the hair using DiffusX technology, providing effortless styling and hair care.
Sarah, another one of our lovely guests can’t live without Sebastian Trillant Shine & Heat protection Spray as Sarah is always using straighteners. Trillant allows her to have straight, gorgeous, healthy, happy hair.
We love it because Sebastian Trillant Shine & Heat protection Spray
provides protection from heat styling, while adding sparkling shine and body to hair. Formulated with rock crystal extract, this lightweight hair spray gently conditions and gives extra shimmer.
Behind the Chair…. Getting to know the team
Our Flagship Salon is buzzing and full of creative inspiration. If you haven’t yet met all the team, let us tell you a bit more about them and what inspires and motivates them. This month’s interview is with the very talented Tristan…
Tell us a little bit about your hairdressing journey? I started having an interest in Hairdressing at the age of 14 so I joined a local salon in Portchester . When I was 16 we moved to New Zealand and I began an apprenticeship but at 17 I got a plane ticket to the UK. I joined Garbos shortly after my return and the rest is history.
What do you think makes Garbo’s unique? Garbo’s history is so unique, it is built on the foundation of family and love. The Garbo’s Team will always strive to give the client what they want which is quite unique in itself.
How do you feel; about the hairdressing industry today? The expectations of what people think they can achieve has changed so much due to the instagram and facebook generation. Us Hairdressers have a big job in educating our customers as to what is achievable for their hair.
What inspires you? Vidal Sassoon has always been an inspiration through out my career, but the thing that inspires me the most are my clients.
