Summer Holiday Hair and all NEW SebMan

The Countdown is on to your holiday in the sun, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep your locks looking super chic this holiday. Whether you’re looking for a hairstyle to tame your frizzy mane or feel like experimenting with different looks whilst your away, perhaps these summer holiday hairstyles will fit the bill nicely..

  1. Thick Hairband

Give a nod to one of this season’s hair trends by sporting a thick headband on your holiday. There’s plenty of headbands to be inspired by. We particularly love a thick alice band to keep our hair out of the way when soaking up the sun. Who thought practical could ever look as chic, ey?

2. Mermaid Waves

Mermaid waves are this summer’s wave of choice. Not only are they extremely cool, they’re feminine and carefree, too. The key to these waves are to randomly curl the hair in different directions for a soft, effortless vibe. Also, remember to keep your mermaid waves looking fly by applying a wearable styling treatment like Sebastian Professional Potion 9 beforehand, to get glossy, whimsical waves that are frizz-free and protected against humidity.

3. The Ballerina Bun

This summer, we’re trading in our top knot for a ballerina bun. It’s much more fresh and fashionable, plus it’s super easy to do too. To create a ballerina bun, work a little bit of Sebastian Professional liquid gloss (link), into your fingers, flip your hair upside down and run the gloss through the lengths of your hair to de-frizz, polish and add a shine boosting finish. Then gather your hair into a bun and flip it back up again. Finish off by securing the bun with a hair elastic.

4. The Fishtail Braid

The fishtail braid is a classic braid that can be customized in so many ways for your tasting. It makes for a super quick and easy look for your summer days. Once you have mastered the fishtail braid, you can experiment with different variations such as the French fishtail braid, chunky fishtail braid, double fishtail braid, three-way fishtail braid, and so much more!

Top tips for lustrous Summer Hair

Many clients will be booking in their holidays and getting their hair summer ready! Have you booked in your hair appointment yet?
Did you know that sun and UV rays, sea and swimming pools conspire to turn glossy hair into tangled tendrils. Here at Garbo’s we have put together some top tips for caring for your hair in the summer sunshine!

It just takes a little TLC to have great hair days all summer long. Here are some hair care tips that can get your hair ready to beat the heat even on the hottest of days.

A few tips for lustrous summer hair

  • Cover it up
    Probably the easiest way to protect your hair from the glaring sun is to cover them using a scarf or hat. While protecting your hair from UV rays, a scarf or hat helps keep the scalp healthy by retaining the moisture. If you are on the beach, then a scarf will also shield hair from the wind that can cause tangles, which can further result in damages and breakages.

  • Want to keep hair loose? Protect them with sun filters
    There are many sun protection filters that can protect hair from UVA and UVB damage. Choosing hair care products that protect hair from sun damage and keep coloured hair from fading. We love the wella Invigo Summer range (link) They keep hair protected before, during and after sun exposure.
    Don’t want to use chemicals? Consider using all-natural UV protectants like sunflower. Massage sunflower oil into your hair before sun exposure. Oil of sunflower not only protects hair from UV rays but it also provides the much needed moisture to your tresses. You can also switch to shampoo and conditioner with added UV protection with sunflower.
invigo - wella - hair - care
  • Outwit damage and frizzes
    Let’s be honest. No matter how careful you are, summer is going to take its toll on your hair. So, it is wise to be prepared to fight problems like dryness, split-ends, frizzes and green pool hair. Consider adding deep conditioning treatments once a week into your hair care regime to add moisture. You can also try hot oil rinse to get back the shine in your tresses.
  • Got green pool hair?
  • Try rinsing out your wet hair with a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar and 2 cups water. This will help you eliminate discolouration and dullness. To prevent green crust from depositing on your tresses, get your hair wet before entering the pool to prevent the absorption of chlorine.

Our favourite sassy summer haircuts

Tis the season for switching up your haircut. From layered pixies to Lobs, to long hair with curtain bangs, there is an option for every hair length. Here are a few of our favourites..

Kate Mara- and her choppy bob

kate - mara - hair

To get Kate Mara’s look, ask for a true, shoulder-skimming bob. Switch it up depending on your mood by shifting your part and adding in undone waves with a flat iron.

Michelle Williams- and her stylish pixie

michelle - williams - hair

If losing length is the name of your summer hair game, then check out Michelle Williams’s short and sweet pixie.

Vanessa Hudgens- the lob

vanessa - hudgens - hair

Vanessa Hudgen’s hairstyle isn’t your average lob. The hair was chopped at a slight angle for a chic take on a mid-length cut.

Behind the Chair…. Getting to know the team

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 Natalie, she has been with us for 22 years!

Tell us a little bit about your hairdressing journey?

I started my career in Hairdressing with Garbos at the age of 14 as a Saturday girl. I have worked for over 22 years now with the Garbos Team. I became a Master Colour Expert in 2011 and also I am a Teacher within Garbos.

What do you think makes Garbo’s unique?

Garbos is unique in that we are really a family run business and everyone who works in the Team feels like part of that family as well.

How do you feel; about the hairdressing industry today?

The Hairdressing industry is still an exciting place to work in. Constantly changing and evolving it’s never dull.

What inspires you?

Colour still inspires me, over the years colours have changed and the innovation behind the colour has allowed us to take ideas further. Educating the younger team also inspires me as they are the next generation.

Beautiful Braids and Professional Products

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.

Millie Bobby Brown channelled Dior at this year’s Golden Globes with a seriously slick bun that revealed a secret trio of braids at the back

Tousled, textured and totally beautiful, Elizabeth Olsen’s loose side plait is the perfect way to accessorise a summer-ready floral dress.

If your feeling braid inspired, but need a few tips and tricks, let us help you. Book in to see your stylist here at Garbos.

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.

Hair Colour and the wonders of Olaplex, Our Hair Hero

Blonde Roast, Chilli Chocolate and Periwinkle? Are we really talking hair colour here? Celeb stylists and Instagram influencers are always inspiring the latest hair color trends. This year the looks are bolder than ever. Here at Garbo’s, we are always on top of the trends and if you’re ready for a colour change your in safe hands.
Here are our favourite colour trends set for 2019.

“Living Coral” This peachy, metallic hair colour is bold and bright. Highlights woven between brights.

blonde - roast - garbos - hair

Are you a brunette hoping to add a splash of blonde to your locks? This gorgeous blonde roast is a new trend seamlessly combining shades of darker brown with shades of lighter blonde for the ideal hue. Will you be trying it this season?

chilli - chocolate - garbos

An indulgent and rich hue, we are loving “chilli chocolate”! A colour for those that love the auburn and reds but aren’t quite ready to go the full way. Deep chocolate brown, sun kissed.

A trend that you are bound to see on blondes, brunettes and redheads is the creation of a shadow root. Choosing a deeper tone to dye your roots, your stylist then adds warm highlights to blend down the lengths. We think this is warm and wonderful.

2018 saw the cool platinum blonde shades, and as more celebs opt for blonde we are due to see a colour change to warm tones for 2019. This “honey hue” is multi-dimensional with a buttery finish.

Olaplex, Our Hair Hero!

At Garbo’s we love to use the Olaplex system when colouring hair. This reduces damage and ensures the colour lasts longer. Olpalex works from inside the hair strands to strengthen and repair damaged locks where the structure has broken down. Hair bonds break when hair is coloured and subject to regular heat, chemical treatments and up against the elements. It allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of hair and it is compatible with all hair types. We also offer an Olaplex treatment to help leave you with healthy, shiny and happy hair!

Behind the Chair…. Getting to know the team

As we welcome all our fantastic artistic team into the Flagship Southsea salon, we thought you might like to know a bit more about them and what inspires them. Last month we interviewed the lovely Tara .Today we chat to Andrew and find out what inspires his creations.

Andrew Robertson a senior stylist at Garbos Hair

“My curiosity feeds my inspiration, shapes and fashion will always fuel this. “

My hairdressing journey started in 2006, when I wanted a career change from being a chef. I always admired my stylist where I got my haircut , and have always loved fashion and design. He kinda challenged me to give it a go, and 13 years later, a few awards and a portfolio I am fiercely proud of , i’m still here . Always learning and trying to do better. And now I am a focusing on passing my knowledge to others , but still striving to be my best.

The hairdressing industry has changed massively. Instagram, facebook and Pinterest have exploded our craft to the masses , but has left us with very unrealistic, unachievable outcomes. Our craft can be demonstrated on-line or in picture format , but not necessary showing you the path, which is never as easy as they make it look. We will always be a core hairdressers of people that cover the bases correctly , and when needed , push the boundaries, but we will always tell you these boundaries of what is achievable and will never over promise. We believe in getting the basics right , and the rest will follow. The industry is thriving , but is hairdressing becoming more about social media? Have we lost our craft , lost in translation. All I know is , I will do my best and always try my hardest, the industry is about us stylists, but the hairdressing is about YOU.

What makes Garbo’s unique is quite simple. The Staff. We care, we care about you as a client, not always focusing on the on point trends or instagram pictures. We care about the health of your hair, your well being and how we can make you feel and leave different to when you came in. It’s not about trends or forward thinking fashion all the time, it’s about tailoring our skills to your needs, be it a good ear to listen to or a bit of advice on this funny planet we call earth. Don’t forget we have many titles and awards to back up our skills, but we don’t focus on those , we focus on you and your needs.

A big thank you from Billy

I would just like to thank you all for the lovely messages of good luck that I have received.  It has been a wonderful 26 years that I have spent living and working in Portsmouth.  I was so lucky when I arrived in Portsmouth, the chance meeting with Jimie and Peter and then the wonderful business relationship that grew from that meeting.

Garbos has been such an important part of my life and when I look back on those wonderful moments, especially the Hairdressers Business Awards in London, all the amazing photo shoots that we have done over the years, to all the young people that we have helped train to be great hairdressers and go on to open their own salons and make a career for them selves. What also stands out for me as memorable moments are the Charity Events that Garbos put on over the years, what fun we all had and also in the process raising thousands of pounds for worth while local causes.

As I go away to sunnier climates I know that I am leaving Garbos in safe hands and that you will all get looked after in the 5 Star Garbos way.

Lots of Love Billy.

Spring Hair Trends for 2019

The sleek bob is set to be the hottest haircut of 2019. Spring Hair Trends and the recent Oscars saw a styled sleek bob as the glamorous hair choice to hit the red carpet. Inspired by the ’70s revival and popular celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Charlize Theron, a new shorter length is set to be the standout hairstyle for 2019. Ready to book in your next appointment?







Because a new year brings with it a whole host of new hairstyles and hair trends just waiting to be experimented with. The cut being the top trend for the year, let us guide you in how to achieve the glossy glam garbo’s look.

1. Perfect Products.
We use Sebastian Professional Hair Care  to create the silky shiny look, we would apply Potion 9 (link) Potion 9 is a wearable styling treatment that makes a great base for blow drying your hair. Its conditioning formula contains active oil botanicals to restore your hair’s natural condition, while the protective agent cocktail enhances manageable styling leaving hair with renewed shine.
After blowdrying and styling, we would finish the look with a fine spritz of Shine Shaker wonderfully lightweight, this delicate spray enhances your hair with a mirror-like shine for a high-gloss, high-impact finish.

2. The Blow Dry.
After you have worked through Potion 9  use the nozzle attachment on your hair dryer and blow down the hair for a super shiny blowout.

3. Finishing touches.
Section the hair into three parts (left, right and back), brush a 1 to 1.5″ section of the hair from roots to ends, then follow the brush with your flat iron. After the hair is flat ironed, use your hands to press the hair against the scalp and use the cool shot of the blowdryer to set it. Spray a toothbrush with hairspray and gently brush the hair around the face and brush down any flyaway strands.

4. Olaplex Treatment.
At Garbo’s we love to use the Olaplex system when colouring hair. This reduces damage and ensures the colour lasts longer. Olpalex works from inside the hair strands to strengthen and repair damaged locks where the structure has broken down. Hair bonds break when hair is coloured and subject to regular heat, chemical treatments and up against the elements. It allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of hair and it is compatible with all hair types. We also offer an Olaplex treatment to help leave you with healthy, shiny and happy hair!

We have previously communicated all the exciting changes that are due to happen in the coming month. As we welcome all our fantastic artistic team into the Flagship Southsea salon, we thought you might like to know a bit more about them and what inspires them. Our first interview is with the lovely and very talented Tara…








Quote from the stylist “ The best hairdressers never stop learning” says bright young and smiley Tara.

Tell us a little bit about your hairdressing journey?

I have been hairdressing now for 13 years. I started my career at age 17 and have never looked back. I think I first decided I would like to be a hairdresser at 11 years old, and I can honestly say it’s the best job in the world. In the hair industry things are constantly changing with fashion and trends, and it gives you the opportunity to constantly learn new things. Education is something I really enjoy, and I am always looking at ways in which I can improve my skills, and learn more. Colour is something I particularly enjoy doing – balayage especially.

What do you think makes Garbo’s unique?
Working at Garbo’s you feel like you are part of a family. Everyone works really hard to make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. As a team I feel like we are very supportive of each other and will always help each other out.

How do you feel; about the hairdressing industry today?
The hairdressing industry has become more and more increasingly trend led – especially with the likes of Instagram and Pinterest. Personally I love how things are always changing, as it gives us the chance to learn and grow.

What inspires you?
I always find social media very inspiring, and am always picking things up on there that I want to try. My favourite service to perform is a balayage – it is a very bespoke service and almost always completely tailored to the individual.

Winter Hair Care Tricks and Tips

We want our locks to look amazing all-year round, but the colder winter months can take its toll on our hair and it needs a bit more tender loving care. You may wonder why hair is dry and incredibly unruly at cooler temperatures. In the winter months hair tends to lose its silky nature and is difficult, and often not willing to submit to our styling efforts. Dry central heating indoors can also play havoc with our hair as the scalp is more prone to dehydration, resulting in dryness.

The team at Garbo’s are here to help and have put together some top tips to avoid dull looking hair in the cold season. Here are our winter hair care tricks and tips.


Olaplex: Our hair hero!

The Olaplex hair treatment is one of the biggest advances in hair technology for years, It really is a hair hero when dealing with damaged and brittle hair. Loved by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Olpalex works from inside the hair strands to strengthen and repair damaged locks where the structure has broken down. Hair bonds break when hair is coloured and subject to regular heat, chemical treatments and up against the elements. It allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of hair and it is compatible with all hair types. At Garbo’s we love to use the Olaplex system when colouring hair. This reduces damage and ensures the colour lasts longer. We also offer an Olaplex treatment perfect for winter hair care.
Thinking of a colour change to start the New Year off? Book a complimentary colour consultation and receive a free Olaplex with your colour service.

Treating the hair with professional products

At Garbo’s hair, we use Sebastian Professional Hair Care which offer a vast and innovative selection of styling products, there to help you create superior styles and transform hair from day to night-professional to provocative, whenever you want. Determined to revolutionise the hair industry to “fearless hair fashion”, Sebastian paved the way in product innovation with their hero products such as Sebastian Professional Reconstructor, and Shaper Hairspray taking hair styling to the next level with gravity-defying or wet-look finishes. Sebastian Professional Hair Care helps you to create your ideal style from start to finish.
One of our favourites is Sebastian Professional Potion 9 as it keeps hairstyles looking perfect for longer, including curls, up-do’s and blow dry’s using a concoction of active oil botanicals which will also help to keep hair looking super-healthy and shiny.
Get rid of winter hat hair by using Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray it helps create hair-raising root volume, leaving you with bigger hair and a defined style over your hair. Volupt Spray keeps hair soft, sumptuous and better to touch.

Regular trims are essential

The most effective way to winter hair care and looking after your locks is to get rid of the dead ends. Hair that has been over styled, over washed and put through the weather extremes needs some extra care so book in for a trim today.

Keep washing to a minimum

Prevent hair from further drying out in the cold and limit hair washing to two-three times weekly. This minimises the amount of heat styling in your routine, which can be extremely harsh on the hair, especially in the winter. Keep the water Luke warm to protect the hair from losing moisture.

Nutrition for Healthy Hair

A balanced diet is necessary for a healthy scalp and hair. The living part of hair is under the scalp skin where its root is housed within its follicle. It derives its nutrients from the blood. Health concerns e.g. stress, trauma, medications, medical conditions and smoking can affect the hair.
The essential omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin B12, and iron, found in fish sources, prevent a dry scalp and dull hair colour. Dark green vegetables contain high amounts of vitamins A and C, which help with production of sebum and provide a natural hair conditioner. Legumes provide protein to promote hair growth and also contain iron, zinc, and biotin.. A deficiency in biotin intake can cause brittle hair and can lead to hair loss. Nuts contain high sources of selenium and therefore are important for a healthy scalp. Eating a colourful, balanced diet will help you to have happy healthy hair all year round.
