Silver Linings: V for Hair

You’ve just come out of several weeks of isolation; you’re feeling recharged and relaxed, but let’s face it, your hair needs some love! You’ve got two inches of regrowth and the greys are showing through! But why not use it to your advantage? Now’s the time to embrace the grey and banish the harsh regrowth line for good!

At Merivale’s V For Hair and Beauty, you’ll find a team of hair care professionals who have mastered the art of growing grey gracefully.

Better yet, their techniques will disguise new growth with a soft, flattering look, so you can replace harsh regrowth lines with beautiful, low maintenance silver grey locks that look amazing.

At V For Hair and Beauty, grey isn’t drab! “We can give you a shimmering sexy blonde or cool iris sparkle, or many more,” Master Stylist Vicki Ogden-O’Fee says.

Head in for a complimentary consultation with a team of experts in going grey gracefully. It’s time to slay the grey!

New look for spring: Studio 295

The talented team at Studio 295 knows that with a great haircut, you can look good at any age. “A good stylish cut can make a huge difference, whether worn natural or coloured,” says owner Noeleen Bonner, who runs the business from her peaceful at-home studio.



Skilled senior stylists Noeleen and Clare offer the full range of services, including Olaplex treatments for damaged hair, and keratin treatments to reduce volume and create smoother, shinier, fuzz-free locks. A stockist of L’Oréal, Paul Mitchell and Fudge, as well as LiLash for beautiful, long lashes to match your stunning new hairstyle, Noeleen encourages clients to bring in a photo of a haircut they like.

Clare is the ‘thick hair’ expert, who understands exactly what it’s like to have hard-to-control hair that seems to have a mind of its own. Noeleen has many years of experience dealing with fine hair, and knows all the tips and tricks to creating more volume and fullness.

The salon provides a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere to read a magazine and enjoy a hot coffee or tea while being pampered. With spring just around the corner, it’s a great time for a freshen up – whether you just want a trim or a totally new look.
