Dry Shampoo. One of the quickest and easiest fixes for dark roots is to apply dry shampoo close to the scalp as this will help lighten the top of your hair.
Change your parting. always thought about parting your hair in the centre or zig zagged? When you wear your hair in the same way every day, your hair actually becomes flatter and your roots look darker. Switch the parting and it’s like a fresh colour injection.

The concept behind synthetics was inspired by science fiction with the idea to create a futuristic series of avant garde images for the Garbo’s Hair Art team Autumn/Winter Hair Cut Collection.
Inspired by Modern Day Robotics
The aim of the shoot was to create glossy, high precision styles for synthetic beings, with inspiration taken from modern day robotics, the development of artificial intelligence, abstract geometry, precision cutting and styling with colour used in contrasting palettes for sleek hair texture, Light thread and plastic materials were used with high impact make up to make each of the models appear Synthetic, All looks were created using Wella Professional colour system, Olaplex & Sebastian Professional products.

Christmas is the time to pull out all the stops. With parties around every corner, trying to find a hairstyle to match your overall look can feel like an impossible task. Take the hassle out and let us style your tresses before your big night.
We’ve put together a collection of some of our all-time favourite party hairstyles to get you through the festive season in style. Medium, short, shoulder length or long, whatever your hair length, we’ve got you sorted.
The classic half up half down is a go-to hairdo, versatile enough to work with the vast majority of hair lengths while also vamping up any party look.
A double Dutch braid is a grade up from the infamous French braid. This Christmas party hairstyle is a real winner as it can be easily adjusted for every hair length – long hair works really well with this look, but it can also be achieved with short and medium hair.
For shoulder or medium length hair, swap the large bun for two smaller buns, while for shorter hair simply adjust the style to finish with two pigtails at the base of your head.
Try out different styles like twisting or braiding the accent hair strand to achieve different looks. You can choose to loosely curl the rest of your hair (as pictured) or try something more suited to you – like keeping it straight or opting for voluminous tight curls. Add a pretty hairband for some festive glamour.
This is a fantastic hairstyle for medium and long hair, adding a little more detail to your updo. A criss cross ponytail will look simple and stylish. You can jazz up this fancy ponytail even more by curling the ends of your ponytail or backcombing the hair to make it more dramatic.
Make sure that you spray your hair with hairspray before making the criss-cross section of this look. Hairspray gives your hair more texture and helps it keep its hold, which is vital when you are constructing different looks. By using hairspray before you make the criss-cross ponytail, the chance of the ponytail unravelling over time is reduced. Get on that dance floor!
When leaves begin to fall, temperatures drop and days become shorter, it can only mean autumn is on its way. No matter how hot the summer has been, the next season of the year is now upon us with home comforts, bronzed woodland hues and a pumpkin or two.
Autumn Colour Trend
If you’re eager to stay ahead of the curve, following the runways from New York, London, Milan, and Paris, you can expect to see some surprising colors in the mix. Aside from the usual autumn suspects we can never get enough of (think camel and merlot), colour pops like vibrant orange and hot pink (even popular worn together!) and every shade of purple and pistachio have been seen.
Autumn hair embodies chic, clean sophistication and people give it a little more attention. Your vibe can be playful, edgy, or even ruffled by a hat and scarf, but ultimately your hair this season will require and deserve a little more effort. This season sees shorter lengths and sleek side swept bangs…

This month’s interview is with Wade… he has recently featured in latesthairstyles.com, you can read his full interview here:
Tell us a little bit about your hairdressing journey? I started at Garbos as an apprentice when I was 17. I have worked and trained alongside many amazing educators, stylists and colourists, all of whom have provided me with a life time of creative influence, knowledge and skills for my own artistic expression. For this I am eternally thankful.
What do you think makes Garbo’s unique? Having worked with Garbos for 18 years. I have been privileged to have seen the journey of the salons and its services evolve along side the brands Sebastian, Sassoon, Wella & Olaplex. What makes the salon unique is the team of creative talent, each having an individual style and repertoire of skills to bring to the table. Garbo’s provides a pool of highly trained staff, each striving for the highest degrees of creativity, perfection and self development in a contemporary salon environment.
How do you feel; about the hairdressing industry today? I feel the industry is at a point of daily change where there is no such thing really a “trend” anymore. The internet allows people access to a broad variety of styles and hair dressing techniques from many walks of life, Providing new inspiration, influences and ways of thinking. This gives people more freedom in how they wish to express themselves. Clients lead the way these days with high expectations, and are way more open minded to push their own boundaries.
What inspires you? I am influenced by so many things such as music, architecture, science, nature and modern art. I see things from a futurists standpoint. I am captivated by visions of our future and where things will lead. I love to help people push their own creative side of freedom and expression, I like to transform people and create looks that evolve with the clients daily lifestyle. I see the role as a collaboration of ideas between the stylist and the client to create a piece of living modern art.
