– Start by prepping the hair with light spritz of Sebastian Trilliant, then in large even sections take a big barrelled tong and wrap hair loosely around it.
– When creating this look around the face aim to start the wave at eye level and wrap away from the face.
– Run some Sebastian Texturizer through the ends and then finish with a light hairspray.

Messy Bun

The DIY top knot is forever being reinvented from sleek and smooth to this seasons messy bun. Here our are top salon tips to creating that chic party ready messy bun.

– Start with hair loosely curled.
– Section front half of hair out of the way.
– Backcomb crown area and then secure the back half of the hair in a low ponytail using a hair elastic. Gently tease the crown area to create a more messy look. Lightly back brush the ponytail and pin the ends in a random order to create the messy bun.
– loosely twist back the front in sections to add to the messy bun keeping some tendrils around the face out, top up wavy bits as required.
– Secure with hairspray.


The fast track to pretty hair? A sparkling accessory of course! From top knots with a sparkling dangly chain tied round the bun, to a stunning side clip amongst gorgeous smooth and sleek softness. This seasons hair accessory is the perfect way to glam up.


Caring for Winter Hair

The winter months can put your hair and scalp under a lot of stress. Here are some key tips and tricks to help keep your hair and scalp healthy during the winter.

1. Wear a hat or scarf over your hair to protect from the elements
2. Drink plenty of water to keep your hair and scalp hydrated. No mulled wine doesn’t count!
3. Use a heat protection spray such as Sebastian Trilliant when using irons, tongs to create party looks.
4. Treat your hair to a rehydrating or repairing treatment. Colour it using the Olaplex system to repair any bond breakage.

Tristan at the Sassoon Academy London

Tristan has been a Garbo’s Stylist for over 7 years now and his hard work has always shone through.  Having always been inspired by Vidal Sassoon, Tristan was rewarded with a chance to go to the Sassoon Academy in London to attend two courses.

Sassoon Course cuts

For over 60 years, the reputation of Sassoon Academy has been built on developing and providing world-class education at their academies and education centers around the globe, inspiring generations of hair professionals of all levels of experience.

Tristan has become part of the extended Sassoon Family and has taken away with him a piece of the culture that created Sassoon.

The abc Cut course provides one week devoted to the touchstone techniques used by Sassoon trained stylists, allowing Tristan time and space to truly perfect his lines, graduation, layering and combinations.

Staying motivated can be a constant challenge, so this course is tailor-made to assist Tristan in achieving his goals.  The Salon Creative Cut course will elevate Tristan’s day-to-day salon work to a new level.

The course  focused on creating salon looks to take back to the Garbo’s Salon.  Inspired by the proprietary methods of abc cutting hair the Sassoon way.  Tristan learnt how Sassoon’s innovative cutting techniques can be tailored to suit the Garbo’s clientele whilst giving Tristan the tools to inspire members of the Garbo’s Team.


“So very pleased to have been a part of the Heritage of my craft, and also very excited, to bring my refined skills and new techniques to the streets  of Southsea with more precision & contemporary shapes”
