Care for your Hair this Winter

We are all aware the cold weather takes its toll on our locks, but do you know what products to use to help keep your hair hydrated and nourished during the winter?


Firstly, a good moisturising shampoo and conditioner is key. We love Phytojoba Shampoo, a rich and gentle product, with extreme moisturising properties reinforcing your hair’s natural protection system, preserving its integrity. Follow on with Phyto Phtobaume Hydration Express Conditioner which cares for weak and damaged hair. Its reconstructive formula works to restore hair fibre deep within to reveal hair that shines with renewed health and vitality.

The Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Mask is an indulgent yet lightweight cream formula that utilises botanical ingredients and essential oils to moisturise and invigorate hair. You can use this up to twice a week.


We’re fans of Phyto Subtil Elixir too- this pre-shampoo treatment is an intense, nutritious oil for dry and damaged hair, that will help to hydrate your tresses.


All products are available in Pierre & James salon to purchase.


Ariana Grande’s new look

It seems Ariana Grande likes change. She went from brunette to grey very recently – which we LOVE. She posted a photo on Instagram with pretty hearts round her head, clarifying that her new hair colour was, in fact, grey (and not a pink shade thanks to the Snapchat filter).




Then just before Halloween, she posted a picture on Instagram again, but this time with a fringe! Could it be a wig? Or has she had the chop? Either way, she looks fab. We can’t wait to see what’s next!

Cambridge scientist reveals the perfect way to dry your hair – with minimal damage

Cambridge academic Dr Tim Moore has dedicated his life studying what you should and shouldn’t do when washing and drying your hair. Here’s a round up of his tips and advice:


  • Don’t go to bed with your hair wet – it could cause split ends
  • Letting your hair dry naturally is more damaging than blow-drying
  • Never brush your hair when wet – use a comb
  • Towel dry your hair before drying – gently scrunch with a towel
  • Only use straighteners or curling tongs on completely dry hair

Wickford lady to donate blonde locks to children’s wig charity in support of other cancer victims

Amy Savill, from Wickford, was given the devastating news she has breast cancer at the age of 30, just three months ago, after finding a lump in her right breast and armpit crease.


Amy then had a Hickman line fitted in July in order for her to receive chemotherapy treatment, which starts on 12th September.


Gorgeous Amy has vowed to shave her hair, tomorrow, and donate to The Princess Trust, who provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to children across the UK and Ireland. Amy’s sister-in-law Haley said ‘We are so proud of Amy for thinking of others even when her world is being turned up side down.’


Courageous Amy popped into Pierre & James to speak to Sam, Director of The Essex Wig Centre, about what was on offer for her after her brave hair shave, which is tomorrow. After discussing in detail what Amy wanted, this is the beautiful result:




Haley has set up a JustGiving page where donations can be made to Breast Cancer Care, Amy’s choice of charity, so far a huge £2,400 has been raised. Click here to donate.


Well done Amy!

Bald man prank in Barbers

A group of pals in Staffordshire decided to pull a prank on a local barber after buying a wig at a boot sale for just £2.


Andrew Gee popped the toupee on and walked into one of his local barbers with friends Jack Bas and Scott Choppin in Rugeley, Staffordshire, and asked for a specific cut.


After two minutes of being in the chair, Andrew whipped off the wig much to 41-year-old barber Adam Mohammed’s surprise. And everyone is in fits of giggles, including Adam. What a sport!


Watch the hilarious video here.
