Carl Watkins - ‘up to the minute’ hair trends

Carl Watkins has 35 year's experience making women look and feel fabulous and by his calculation that equates to a mind blowing 177,000 haircuts, 88,000 hair colours and 140,000 blow-waves!

To keep up with the play, he subscribes to The English Hairdressers' Journal which provides information about ‘up to the minute’ global hair trends and latest colouring and cutting techniques.

Carl uses state-of-the-art specialised Ionic Hair Colour processor to ensure 100% grey coverage and limit any degrading of the hair condition. This process also ensures blonde colours are clean with no unwanted gold or brassy under-tones and the hair is kept in top condition. This new technology ensures colours are processed in 10 minutes instead of 35 minutes, saving the client time, with most cut and colours completed within two hours.

Carl also offers the Balayage technique, which continues to grow in popularity as it creates natural-looking highlights that look more modern than traditional colouring methods. “It’s a great option for newbies and it doesn’t require the insane upkeep of colouring all of your hair,” says Carl.

New clients who book in with Carl before 30 October 2017 will receive 50% off their haircut when booking a colour service.
