Make 2019 your clients’ best hair year yet with the hottest new products

Lauren The Blog

Every year we begin January with the very best of intentions, declaring to Marie Kondo the hell out of our homes, take off our prossecco pants (only until February, obvs) and save some money. Hats off to all those with will power of steal who make it through to the 31st! But, if like us, the Zara online sale was just too much to handle and a cosy Sunday in the pub just wasn’t the same without a large glass of Malbec, you’ve already caved.

Don’t beat yourself up, just like your clients, we’re only human, so this year we challenge you to make one resolution you can both actually stick too – taking better care of their hair. Whether it’s heat, bleach or styling woes, encourage consumers to show their strands some love, with our pick of the latest products to land on the market. In no particular order we introduce…
