Mini '70s curtain bangs meets bronde balayage

I headed to my favourite salon,Wavi London, which is a local favourite of mine on Chatsworth Road, East London. Wavi London is a premier boutique hair salon, with international stylists and colour technicians – it's a salon all about empowering women and they truly understand the importance that hair holds. In the words of Fleabag, “Hair is everything, we wish it wasn't so we could actually think about something else occasionally. But it is. It's the difference between a good day and a bad day”

Cansu, the owner of Wavi, started with the all-important colour. I've been every variation of blonde, from ashy to white, and this season I wanted to try something new. Like Goldilocks, I've tried different shades ofporridgeblondeand have found a middle ground, not to hot not too cold – an easy to upkeep, warm bronde. Cansu tells me “Balayage is a very bespoke application so, the consultation is very important. Each client's needs from a balayage vary, some would prefer more roots and a thicker face frame and some would like it closer to roots with a thinner face frame to create a more worn-in natural highlight effect. Not to forget the shades of colours vary too. Starting with photos to see the client's expectations, is always a good idea!”

A fringe is a MASSIVE decision – and I mean that sincerely. If you, like me, had a bowl haircut as a child the word 'fringe' might make you shudder. But seeing endless influencers style theircurtain fringesthis season has made me change my mind. If you're not confident enough to go for a full fringe, a mini curtain is the best idea – it's long enough to wear unstyled but when blowdried correctly, can take a '70s flip.

Cansu says “the main focus is the front of the hair for this style, once agreed on the shortest length the client is ok with it all goes down from there, a smooth textured slide with scissors (yes, a scissor slide not razor) and I can always go back to adding more layers and texture until we achieve the perfect flick.” She has a word of warning: "This haircut will need a round brush blow drying to style at home to make it look like the way it does in the salon," so make sure you're willing to style your fringe ladies."
