Summer/Autumn 2018

What a hectic few months it’s been over here at Dean Jones Hairdressing, from our refurbishment of downstairs, to The Edinburgh Festival and our team trip down to London for Salon International 2018. It has indeed been crazy but we’ve enjoyed every minute!

Refurbishment of Downstairs

Firstly thank you to all our clients for your patience throughout the renovation process, it was noisy, dusty and Dean was uncontrollable, but we are so pleased with our new downstairs salon space. With our Senior Assistant Neve coming up the ranks we look forward to making full use of this new salon space, and creating loads more gorgeous looks along the way. This can also be used for Private Bridal Parties or Birthday’s where we can organise a full glam squad to look after you in your own space. We hope you love our new area as much as we do!

Edinburgh Festival

It’s always our favorite time of the year. Edinburgh just blooms with entertainment and cool pop up bars / restaurants. We made sure to have a team outing to Assembly Room’s drag show ‘Yummy’ which was a real giggle and if you get the chance to next year definitely give them a visit.


Of course our most favorite part of this crazy month is meeting a whole bunch of people from all over the globe and making them feel beautiful or rescuing them from the rain.

Our New Manager!!


We had a very exciting promotion this quarter for our Senior Stylist from the very start – Linden! She is now salon manager, taking care of not only salon education, being a mum to all staff and now taking care of a whole bunch of serious stuff. Congrats to our salon OG.

Salon International 2018

The whole team took a trip down to London at the start of October. Apart from a disastrous journey down, with weather warnings and a 3 hour delay – We all had a blast! We spent the whole Sunday going around London’s Excel Center trying and testing new products and getting inspired from a whole bunch of famous stylist’s showcasing their work on stages scattered around the arena.


We were even lucky enough to get a tour and insiders glimpse of our favorite London salon “ Not Another Salon”, their wacky colours and creative styles inspires us daily, as does salon director Sophia Hilton’s hilarious Instagram posts. We got a whole salon tour and some of the guys managed to bump into Sophia after her seminar at the tradeshow and get some selfies. Head over to our social media outlets for all footage from our London trip.

Education, Education, Education


We’ve had a whole bunch of courses over this half of the year, with our Director Dean recently graduating with his Wella Master Colour Award. We also visited Sophia Hilton’s Balayage Bash (which we then had to bring back to the salon and do our own salon education evening),Stylists got inspired with Wella Educator Abby with the launch of new Koleston Perfect with Me+ whilst our Assistant’s got creative at the launch of the all new GHD Platinum+.

Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to keep up to date with all our latest news and trends.

Festival Inspiration

Festival season is upon us and there are some seriously enviable styles out there that you can recreate at home in a few simple steps with the help of the Dean Jones Hairdressing team. Think Coachella chic all summer long!

Space Buns


This intergalactic trend isn’t going anywhere and we love it. It is super easy to create. This looks amazing with half your hair left down or all of your hair tied into two buns at either side of your head. Start by gathering the amount of hair you would like in each bun and tie these into high ponytails at each side. Gently back comb your hair to create volume and texture before wrapping around the hair tie and securing with hair grips. Pull some pieces of hair loose to get that ‘undone’ finish perfect for festivals. We love hair glitter and jewels so if you are feeling creative add some of this to your hair parting and your festival style will be instantly elevated.

Hat Hair – Don’t Care


Hair feeling flat and a little bit hungover as you hit day 3 of festival fun? Hide it with an on trend hat and no one need know. Simply wave the ends of your hair softly and style with your favourite hat. We  recommend smoothing a little System Professional Luxe Oil through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair after styling with your curling iron to reduce frizz and add shine.

Pimp Your Pony


A super easy way to add an edge to your average ponytail and perfect for day two or three hair at your fave festival this summer. Tie your hair into a high textured pony then take sections down throughout the pony tail and tie into little bubbles before teasing the hair to add texture and movement. The beauty of this style is the relaxed feel, there is no need to keep each section of hair equal or perfect. Embrace that messy vibe this festival season.


Hair Trends this Summer

Caring for your hair throughout Summer is more important than ever and there are a number of heat free hair hacks and styles that can be gentle to your hair in hotter weather.

On the go holiday glam

buns and ties

To get that glam look on the go without having to blowdry your hair in the heat, try this super chic bun with a glamorous edge. Allow your hair to air dry naturally after applying some oil or nourishing hair cream like Sealing Cream from System Professional Solar Range to the mid lengths and ends. Gently twist your hair into a low bun, without being too cautious as you want that ‘undone’ look. Tie your hair with an invisibobble as this will not damage your hair. Once your hair is in place, pull some strands loose to create that cool girl vibe before wrapping your favorite silky scarf around the bun. Simply wrap this around your bun and tie at the top in a knot or bow – summer ready in no time with no damage to your tresses!

The Instaworthy wet look scrunching with Olaplex No3 + System Professional Curl Definer

wet look

There is no hotter low maintenance look to rock this summer than the wet look. Even better, you can create this look whilst treating your hair to lots of nourishment and repair with Olaplex No3. Apply your Olaplex treatment generously through damp hair before scrunching into shape. Leaving this on throughout the day/night will act as a super replenishing treatment for your hair and leave you with shiny healthy hair that is well protected. To get that really moisturised wet shine look, add some NEW System Professional Curl Definer and twist hair into place. This will enhance softness and manageability and give you that glossy finish.

Fake it till you make it with sun kissed lites

Sun lites

Having a stay-cation this summer? Time to fake it til’ you make it with some sun kissed lites. Balayage is still bang on trend and there are lots of colour techniques your stylist can use to give you a sunkissed feel. Adding a few light strands round your face can give the illusion of healthier, thicker hair and add a sunkissed finish. Pairing this with a stretched root will give you a low maintenance look that will grow out beautifully throughout the summer and will cause little damage to your hair too.

How to care for hair in Summer, using System Pro Energycode + Solar range.


You can now build texture, volume + shine whilst working on the condition of your hair with the new System Professional Redefined Product Line. Looking after not only your personalized hair condition but working to give you you’re desired shape and hold at the same time. Give you salon styled hair in the comfort of your own home.

Pop in salon and let your Stylist inspire you today! 

Hair Comes the Bride

Hottest Styles for SS18


Jeweled Accessories

Taking inspiration from recent catwalks at fashion week, embellished accessories are bang on trend for brides in 2018 – think crystals and diamonds perched perfectly above a loose chignon or delicately beside a romantic braid. The secret to this trend is to ensure the accessory compliments and enhances your hairstyle rather than overpowering it. Don’t be afraid to embrace colour either, pastel tones and soft shades look simply stunning when paired with sparkling hair accessories.boho

Romantic Updo’s

Flowing pieces of hair framing your face along with an ‘undone’ bun or understated half up half down style are all super popular styles for brides-to-be this year. Keeping the hair styled yet relaxed and tidy, and not overly pristine is a must for this trend. Boho chic meets bridal!


Tousled Tresses

Your favorite tousled waves can be part of your big day as tousled tresses have been seen all over the bridal catwalks for 2018! Longer hair tends to work best with this style and compliments simple, understated dresses beautifully. Keep it simple with this look and style your hair into soft tumbling waves before adding a veil or sparkling tiara for a sense of effortless glamour.


Preparation is Key

No matter what style you choose to walk down the aisle in, how you prepare for your big day is imperative to the finished look. Booking in with your chosen stylist for a trial appointment is standard but we recommend visiting your wedding stylist a while before this if you aren’t already a regular client. The stylist will be able to advise you on your colour and cut your hair in preparation for your wedding with your chosen bridal hairstyle in mind. We would also recommend a series of bespoke treatments in the run up to the big day to make sure your locks are in peak condition for your special day.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

What a whirl-wind year we’ve had, from multiple award ceremonys, to in salon party evenings. We’ve had a ball and here’s some of our highlights for you all..


We took a trip to the Scottish Business Awards to a jolly down to London for the entire team to attend the Salon Business Awards with Salon Business Magazine  which are just some of our top memories. Being nominated for Best Local Salon amongst only six from UK was a massive honour and we hope to bag a win next year! At the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards we were also blessed to win the Highly Commended Recognition Award which we were delighted with and so thankful for too.


We have also had lots going on in the salon too with the Big Hair Do in association with CreativeHEAD Magazine in September. A big party in the salon with complimentary bubbles, braid and blowdry bars and lots more. The team loved this night and it was great to meet so many friends and family of our current clients. Our festive retail event was another chance for us to get together with some mulled wine and mince pies to help you get your hair ready for the party season with desk to dancefloor looks demonstrated by our team of experts. We also used these fabulous fun evenings to give something back and each time we raised money for charities that are close to our heart. With £300 going towards the Little Princess Trust and another £300 going towards less fortunate kids across Edinburgh’s Christmas presents with Salvation Army.

Our director Dean is also in the tide line of passing his Master Colour Course with Wella and we also introduced Couture Colour in the salon to give you guys more choice and confidence in our colour skills!


We have featured in lots of magazines, newspapers and had some great blogger reviews this year that we love to share with you.


We have also had the chance to meet lots more lovely clients and create some lovely new styles for all of you. We would like to say a massive thank you for your continued support and hope to see you all again in 2018!

Lots of Love, Dean Jones Hairdressing xox

Weather Proof Your Hair This Winter

749684e7fbe7d57f5e31e4afa1f1f850Summer is a distant memory and the winter wardrobe is unboxed.. It’s this change in season that could affect your hair. So here are our top tips on how to Weatherproof & Winterproof your hair.

With the colder weather and central heating on the go your hair could start to lack moisture, This is when you need to inject your hair with as much hydration as possible, try using System Professional Hydrate Shampoo.

Baring that in mind commit to weekly deep conditioning treatments to lock the moisture by using Olaplex No3 or System Professional Repair Mask.

Central heating can drive your hair static and mad so try using a  Leave-In Conditioner to combat this electric hair eg System Professional Colour Save Bi-Phase Conditioner

Have you got your winter woolly wardrobe out yet? Fight hat hair by priming your hair before drying, to give extra hold and style memory so you just need to brush your hair right back into shape, Eimi Velvet Amplifier will help you with this or try spritzing Dry Shampoo (Eimi Dry Me) to add instant volume when on the go.

Buy a stronghold hairspray like Eimi Stay Styled to tame any fly aways and frizz  Or embrace awesome updos and posh ponys to style your hair back on those windier days.

Make time for yourself this Christmas

Can you believe that it’s only 11 weeks till Christmas? That equates to only 81 days or even more scary 1,944 hours!

As you know, when it comes to that time of year, then there are times that you wish there were more than 24 hours in a day. In the salon we certainly do, as it’s always our busiest time of year.

And with that we want to make sure that all our clients look their best this festive season, so we’re giving you a gentle reminder not to let time run away with you this year –and make sure that you have your party season appointments booked in.

It only takes two minutes to pick up the phone and make that appointment. It could save you hours of trying to tame your unruly locks or years of misery having to look at your unkempt fringe in the photos over Christmas dinner.

So give us a call and book your December appointments now. After all, at a time when it’s all go, what could be better than taking an hour or two off and letting us pamper you so you look fabulous this year.

Call the salon today on 0131 558 7777.

Autumn / Winter Trends 2017

When the weather gets cold, nothing’s better than warming up your look with this seasons hot trends. We’ve selected our four favorite looks hot off the catwalks  to keep you sizzling this winter.


 Cool girl hair

Everyone want’s to be you – or at least have hair like yours.  This season’s look is all about your do looking undone with a soft, natural looking wave. So take inspiration from Fendi, Dries Van Norten and Vivienne Westwood and be part of the in-crowd this winter. It’s easy to recreate – we recommend adding texture with Sebastian’s Stylbrid 9 hairspray and your GHDs.

cool girl

Straight And Sleek


Forget summer’s big, beautiful blow out’s, this winter’s style is straight, sleek and stylish. As seen on the catwalk at Topshop, super straight, super shiny hair screams style with season.

The great news is that sleek has never been easier.  Use your GHD’s and banish firz and add shine with Sebastian Liquid gloss.


Sleek And Swept Back


Wind and rain swept hair is never a great look!  This winter the answer is the evolution of last season’s sleek, swept-back look. On the catwalk Sportmax and Mulberry models sported naturally swept-back hair with added height.

So create your own soft, glossy sweep using Sebastian Shine Crafter and guard against the elements using Sebastian Shine Define


Super Short Bobs

 This season the bob is back. Bright, boyish and brand spanking new, forget middle aged mums, this season’s bob is youthful and edgy.

So stand out in style, and take the chop.


8 of the Hottest Trends this Festival Season

Festival season is in full swing, from Rewind to Creamfeilds we’ve got you covered.

Here’s the 8 hottest trends this Festival Season!


No matter what the colour glossy metallic eyes are a must this summer. NYX Roll on Eyeshadow Shimmer is the easiest way to recreate this and you can pick yours up from Boots from just £5.50.



Tousled hair that’s done but undone, from tiny braids to space buns with all those big textured beachy waves. Using Sebastian Texture Maker is the perfect base for this, giving you a matte salty feel.



A duey complexion with a holiday-worthy glow. Make sure you’ve got the perfect moisturiser and primer to give the best hydrated base.



Flower pins and hair rings are the new go-to and they won’t fall out whilst your dancing the day away. Topshop is amazing for all your hair accessories must haves.



Half up / half down or  super neat Dutch braids are the one. Our Stylist Claire’s personal fav.  This works especially well on second or third day festival hair with Nioxin Dry Cleanser.



From top knots to knotted ponytails this is a glam way to throw all your locks out your face on those warmer Summers days.



There’s no better time to experiment with colour than for a festival; keep make-up minimal and go for an all-over wash out temporary pastel colour a la Jourdan Dunn.



Yes, we mean of the haircut variety (!!).

70’s- style cuts have never been cooler, and a summer fest is a perfect place to debut one.

BangStyle is an online platform that inspires other women and hairdressers through the art of hair, it showcases real salon’s work so it was great for our very own ‘Allure’ Collection showcased worldwide and to be winners!




We’ve had a couple special guests in salon over the past month, Dean got to meet two lovely Edinburgh bloggers who both got pampered in salon. Joan Collins from ‘How Does Joan Do It’ was our first, Dean re-lightened all Joan’s hair back to blonde ways. She posted a great Instagram post with the final result.

Eye of the Tiger

Bring out your inner animal this season with the new tiger eye highlights. Flashes of multi tonal blondes and brunettes brighten up dull, dark hair for a natural, sun kissed look. So go wild like Jessica Alba and J Lo this spring –  it’s ggggrrrreeeeat!

t eye tiger eye

Seventies Style

It’s not just 70’s fashion that’s in vogue this spring. Updates on retro styles are hitting hairstyles too. This spring why not make like TSwift and rock the new shag. Wear it with or without a fringe, it’s maximum style with minimum effort.

1020 tdwift

Short Change

Celebrities are embracing short hair this season with Gemma Arterton, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johnansson going for the chop this spring. Whether it’s short curls or a pixie cut, it will frame your face and make your cheek bones pop. So if you’re after a new look, whatever colour you are, shorter is sweeter.


Bang on

Short fringes, (usually only sported by hip Spanish students) are going mainstream this season. It’s not a look for the faint hearted, big style statements, require confidence, so wear it with attitude like Bella Hadid

Autumn Colour Edit

As the weather changes the fashion magazine pages are filled with the new season’s fashion trends. They tempt us with long leather boots, winter coats and chic accessories to keep us warm and looking on trend this winter.

Autumn is also a great time to embrace a new colour trend. So here’s our guide to this season’s most stylish shades…




Bronde Ambition

Tom Ford’s two-tone red sequin floor length dresses sparkled at fashion week. Take a leaf out of his book by embracing the difference of bronde! It doesn’t matter if you’re blonde, red or brunette achieve this look by adding warm and rich tones.



Punk it up

Take a lead from Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent and be bad-ass. If you have dark brunette or black hair try adding some red accents to subtly brighten up your colour.



Pretty in Pink

This season Gucci models stalked runway in top to toe candy pink, so if you’re feeling sweet then why not try a dusky rose gold hue for your hair.

Summer Lovin

If like Balenciaga’s bright floral colours you are still clinging on to a summer, then this season’s baby lights are for you. Small flashes of light add a sun kissed look for dull winter days.

Why not book a free colour consultation with one of our stylists today?


Edinburgh Festival Fringe

If like us you like to change it up, there will come a time where you consider the much-loved option of a fringe. But unlike Edinburgh’s annual festival, a fringe is a long-term commitment, something that will stay with you for a while – not a temporary month long moment of madness!

Before you get the snip here are our Do’s and Dont’s to a successful fringe.




  • Make sure you keep it up to date. It is not the sixties and the fringe has moved on so embrace a modern look.
  • Try a heavy fringe to hide problem eyebrows.
  • Consider your hair. What’s right for straight hair won’t work on curls.
  • Use fringe friendly products. Heavy, oily products will weight it down and make it greasy.
  • Don’t be afraid to pop in for regular fringe trims. Never cut it yourself EVER!
  • If it’s too much of a step, then start off with longer soft bangs to test the water.




  • Rush into a fringe. It takes time and effort to keep it looking good.
  • Just consider your face shape or the size of your forehead. For example if you have oily skin it means an oily fringe!
  • Be afraid to fake it like Kendal Jenner.
  • Go too short, unless you want to make a statement.
  • Worry if you don’t love your bangs, they grow back eventually!


Curl me, Flatten me, GHD me !!!

We recently had an exciting in salon seminar with Morena from GHD.

Was really interesting finding out the background of the company and how they came about creating the first ever classic GHD Straightener, which all women loved when it was first launched.


So from the styling products to the Flat Irons and the Curves we’ve learned the ins and outs and we’re super excited to pass on our new found knowledge on to you.

We got to work with some models to get that extra practice that we can’t get in busy salon time..




Our girls loved getting to try and test the whole range.

Our Senior Stylist Linden said she “Loved the Creative Curl wand with a new wrapping technique to give big glam Hollywood waves” and our Salon Assistant Ceilidh loved getting to try out the recently launched GHD Platinums..


We also got to try out the new GHD Advanced Split End Therapy, which is a quick and easy way to seel those unwanted split ends, gave such a beautiful shine and made Claire’s hair so much healthier. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on this amazing product!!




All in all great session all round and we look forward to teaching  all you guys how to get the most out of your stylers, but in the mean time here’s some step by steps you can try at home..




And with that we are offering £20 off selected GHD Stylers in salon for a limited time only!!



Your Passport To Perfect Hair Just Landed…

As I sit here on my sun lounger with my hair wrapped in a Joan Collins style turban (to stop my hair look like a frazzled poodle) I ponder whether I should have paid more attention to how to look after my hair on holiday. After all I have 20 pairs of shoes for the next 7 days, perhaps there was some room in my case for some essential products to keep my hair as pampered and relaxed as the rest of me during my holiday.

To make sure you don’t make that mistake here are Dean’s handy hints for happy holiday hair

Watching your weight – There’s no need to take your full size products with you with Energy-coded Wella Trio Travel Pack Minis (£15). These kits are the perfect amount for a week away and light and easy to pack.


Beach babe – We all want sexy beach waves. If you have straight hair use the Eimi Sugar Lift (Shiny Sugar Spray) or Eimi Ocean Spritz (Matte Salt Spray) for a tousled sea kissed effect. For those with a natural wave or curl in hair then Sebastian Whipped Crème is the ideal product. Apply the product, twist small sections of hair, leave to dry and then shake it all out. The bonus is it’s really moisturising too.


Got protection? – It’s not just your skin that you need to look after. Try the new System Professional Solar Range to fight humidity and chlorine.

Sun style – In the sun you want to keep you hair tied up but still stylish, this seasons braids and pleats are the on trend answer for high fashion hair by the pool. Stylist tip is to pull your hair back off your face but not tightly so you get a soft and pretty look.

 Post holiday blues – Once you are back from your trip, it’s time to book a hair appointment. Your hair dresser will refresh your sun lightened colour and trim any heat damage. After all you look like a bronze goddess and your hair needs to look amazing too.


Happy Holidays!

Say I Do To Easy Wedding Hair

Hair is one of a long list of stresses when it comes to planning a wedding.

We’ve put together a 10-step guide to easy wedding hair so it’s one less thing to worry about!

pretty messy up-do with pearl hair pins & veil via


  • First things first – give us a call to book your appointment for the day of the wedding.
  • Planning is always the secret to success. Start three months before the big day by chatting through your theme and the look your going for with your stylist.
  • It’s always to good to have a style that you love. You’ll find great inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram. Remember that the style of your dress will affect the overall look.
  • Much as we would all like red carpet  hair for our wedding, you’ll find that most celebrities have hair extensions. Your stylist will guide you to find a style that is fabulous – but realistic.
  • Don’t fall into the ‘I’m growing my hair for my wedding’ trap! Keep having regular haircuts. It will keep your hair strong and healthy and a trip to the salon is a great opportunity for a bit of me time away from wedding planning.


  • Your hair is your crowning glory so it needs to be in tip-top condition. We will recommend the best course of in-salon and at home treatments for you.
  • Don’t make any drastic colour changes close to your wedding. If you do want something different, make the change as soon as possible. Your final colour appointment should be to maintain your existing colour – after all we don’t want any shocks.
  • Book your hair rehearsal one month before your big day. Bring any headpieces, hairpieces or veils that you will be wearing. It’s also good to bring a bridesmaid to get their opinion and to take pictures from all angles. Remember to be honest with your stylist – this is your wedding so you need to be happy with your hair.
  • Your last appointment should be two weeks before your wedding. Treat yourself to a colour freshen, trim and a treatment.
  • On the big day all you need to do is feel relaxed and confident. You may be nervous but at least you know your hair looks amazing.

Christmas Party Hair

It’s Christmas party time of year again. The office is a flurry of excitement with talk of new dresses, shoes and bags. But more often than not your hair do is left to the last moment!

I have a couple of really simple rules to make sure that you hair is the crowning glory to your Christmas party outfit.

Firstly your hair is part of your look. If your dress has frills and fuss, then keep your hair sleek and simple, you don’t want to end up looking like the fairy on the top of the tree. A simple blow dry can make you look and feel fabulous.

Choose a style that will last the whole evening. There is nothing worse than starting the night out with a head of luxurious curls that end up limp and stuck to your face as you strut your funky stuff on the dance floor.

This year hair accessories are a key trend, with designers such as Dolce & Gabanna and Chanel using crystal clips and leather headbands. So why not finish your outfit with something that will make your hair look amazing.

So if you stick with these top tips you’re bound to be best dressed at this year’s night out.  And don’t forget to be good!

You’re welcome! 


As hairdressers we often hear from our client’s…“my hair looks great when I leave the salon, but I can never recreate properly at home!” So to get you started, here are a few of our top tips to helping you achieve Great hair every day…

1. Get yourself a really good hair dryer. There is nothing worse than a getting arm-ache trying to achieve a sleek style using a hair dryer that would struggle to blow out a birthday candle let alone transform you into a groomed goddess!  There are some really good dryers that don’t cost a lot and will make a real difference to your routine – invest in one – it will be worth every penny.

2. Use your Nozzle! So many people lose or get rid of the nozzles that come with their hair dryers, but keeping hold of them is the key to a smooth sleek blow dry. When you’re drying your hair, first blast your hair to partially dry it, then get your nozzle on and use the dryer to smooth the hair in the direction that you want it to lie.

3. Having the right brush to create your style is essential. Using the wrong type of brush is like trying to eat soup with a fork – messy and a waste of time! Pay attention to the brush that your stylist uses when they are drying your hair, or just ask them to recommend the best sort of brush to achieve your style.

4. Use good quality products as recommended by your salon.  From the shampoo and conditioner, right through to the styling and finishing products you use, using high quality or salon recommended products can make the difference between good hair and really great hair. So don’t be shy, make sure you know what your hairdresser is using on your hair.

So, there you have it, our top tips for perfect styling at home. We’ll expect to see you all looking sleek and stylish and feeling amazing – and I can rest easy knowing that you all have great hair every day.
