WHICH HAIRSTYLE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
This list of high-profile celebs who have transformed their careers simply by changing their hairstyle is pretty impressive. Twiggy's impish haircut, Victoria Beckham's 'posh bob', Khloe Kardashian's blonde blunt cut, Miley Cyrus's short edgy hairstyle... to name but a few.
The reasons for wanting a dramatic hair transformation vary from being bored and stuck in a hair rut to wanting to shake off your old image because it reminds you of an old boyfriend or dead-end job you've left behind.
Whatever your reason for a metamorphosis, the Gusto team will give you honest advice about which hairstyles, styles and hair colours will suit you. We'll even offer a cuppa and some uplifting chat as we work our magic.
Of course, you do not need to have a complete restyle at Gusto. We also offer trims, tidy-ups and can add in some well-placed layers to maintain your hairstyle.
WILL A SHORT HAIRSTYLE SUIT ME?
Are you thinking of going for the chop? Short hairstyles are a big hair trend in London so it's important to find a great hairdresser with precision cutting skills to ensure you end up with a cool short hairstyle you adore.
Our Gusto stylists are highly trained and up-to-date with the latest cutting & styling techniques and hair trends. We will help you find a short hairstyle that suits your face shape, facial features and individual style. The right short hairstyle can truly transform how you look and feel, and it's amazing how much you can adapt your hairstyle using the right hair products.
So, what other benefits are there to having short hair?
It'll be quick and easy to wash and dry; healthier without those split ends, and you'll look smoking hot during summer as your short hairstyle will be much cooler than long locks that need tying up and out of the way.
HOW DO I GROW OUT MY OLD HAIRSTYLE?
We often hear guests complaining that their hair is at that 'in-between' stage - somewhere between short and long - and that it simply will not behave! Never fear, your Gusto Hairdressers are here!
If you are growing your hair and it's reached that mid-length stage, your best option is to have it cut. Hang on a sec? Have it cut... but I'm trying to grow it, we hear you cry. What we mean is you should have your hairstyle shaped into a hairstyle for medium-length hair.
This might mean adding in some layers to thin out the bulky hair mass, or tidying up the lengths to get rid of split ends that are actually stopping your hair from growing.
There are plenty of lovely hairstyles for mid-length hair including layered shaggy hairstyles, bobs and lobs, and one-length blunt hairstyles. Who knows, you might even decide to keep your new hairstyle!
Top Hairdressers In London For Haircuts & Styling
London West End
LOOKBOOK #1: BOBS & LOBS
The bob is one of those hairstyles that will never go out of fashion - it is a classic that is loved by women the world over, and it's easy to understand why.
This chic hairstyle suits most face shapes and is surprisingly versatile with options for jaw-length bobs, cheek-bone skimming bobs and longer bobs AKA the lob.
Heck, we've even got the pob thanks to Victoria Beckham hairstyle from a few years ago which the press branded the 'posh bob'!
The versatility of the bob does not stop there either. Bobs and lobs can be graduated and angled so they are shorter at the back; asymmetrical with one short side and one long side; subtly layered, or cut into one length and blunt. We can add fringes, waves and curls for a new look, or add product for a slicked back or more textured hairstyle.
LOOKBOOK #2: THE SHAG
Taking inspiration from the 1970s, The Shag is a top hair trend for the fashion-forward woman.
This low-maintenance hairstyle looks effortlessly cool with a bit of a rock star vibe. To achieve this look, your Gusto stylist will add long layers throughout your hair before adding some hair product and giving you a messy blow dry. The end result is a choppy, layered look that has texture and volume.
The Shag works well on mid-length and slightly longer hair and it's amazing how the addition of a short fringe or choppy eye-skimming fringe can really add to the overall look.
For a more sophisticated 'take' on The Shag, get out your curling irons and add in some structured or beachy waves. Gorgeous!
LOOKBOOK #3: HAIR UPS
When we are allowed to go 'out-out', remember that your favourite London hairdressers would love to create a gorgeous party hairstyle for you.
Whether you are looking for a bridal hairstyle, hair ideas for prom, or are attending a special party or event, Gusto Hairdressing has a team of talented stylists who are experienced in creating special occasion hairstyles.
Popular bridal and prom hairstyles include updo's, wavy hairstyles, vintage hair looks and intricate plaited hairstyles. We love getting creative and will work with you to find a hairstyle that suits you and complements your outfit and any bridal or party themes.
We highly recommend you book in for a hair trial a few months before your event, so we can ensure your special occasion hairstyle is perfect in time for your big event.
