Whilst you wait for the salon to reopen on 12th April, use this time as an opportunity to gain inspiration for a fresh new look on your next visit to Martin And Phelps Hair & Beauty Salon In Cheltenham.

The Martin and Phelps stylists and colour specialists are highly trained and up-to-date with the very latest hair trends and techniques. We would be happy to advise you on a flattering and fashionable new look when we reopen. 

Here are some of our team’s favourite ideas for inspiration for your post-lockdown hair transformation…

Sleek Bobs and Long Bobs

After the last year and various lockdowns, it’s no wonder that low maintenance hair is a popular trend for 2021. The bob is set to be one of the favourite trends for this year, but did you know it’s actually quite a versatile hairstyle?

A sleek bob is a perennial favourite, although to keep it looking sharp and sleek takes a little maintenance. A long bob, or lob, is a great way to flatter all face shapes, and can still be tied up for exercising or styling into an updo.

A low maintenance alternative to the sleek bob is to create texture in your hair by adding layers. Adding texture to your look is a fabulous way to add volume to fine hair, and can be styled simply by scrunching or using tongs to create waves.


Chic Pixie Cuts

Following the low maintenance trend, many of our clients embraced a shorter look following the last lockdown. Pixie cuts are the most popular short hair trend at the moment.

A pixie cut can be incredibly versatile. You can style it in many ways, whether you choose a slicked back or tousled look, a curly pixie hairstyle, asymmetrical chops or “fauxhawk” styles. Pixie haircuts with a fringe are going to be big this year, being seen on magazine covers and social media alike. 

Natural Curls

If you’ve been blessed with naturally curly hair, multi textured or afro tresses, it’s time to make the most of your hair’s texture this year and wear a more natural, easy to style look. 

To nourish your curls, tame frizz and create structure in your spirals, your Martin and Phelps stylist can recommend treatments and professional home hair care products that will infuse moisture into your hair and give you swoon worthy curly hair that is easy to maintain at home. 

Contrasting Hair Colours

We have such a wide range of shades available that it can be difficult to choose an all over colour, so why limit yourself to just one colour? This trendy look means you can go for a hair colour combination that is bespoke to you – simply speak to your Martin and Phelps colour expert about the hair colours that we can provide for you.  

A popular way to wear the two tone hair colour trend is by adding a beautiful balayage or contrasting ombre hair colours. You can add a new hair colour that compliments your existing hair colour or make a statement with dramatic fashion hair colours!

Rose Brown Hair Colours

Are you a brunette who is bored of trend articles telling you to “go blonde” or “add pastel hair colours”? Ladies with beautiful brunette hair should not accept limitations on their hair colour! This year the brunette colour trends are all about enhancing those warms tones and creating fantastic multi-dimensional hair colour!

Warm rosy shades have become a popular way to enhance brunette hair colours and are a great alternative to the popular rose gold colours which usually reserved for blondes.
