Bringing Back The Nineties

What started as a Gen-Z trend on social media made its way to Paris Fashion Week and onto the High Street, the centre part is back in style - even for millennials! 

With a centre part, tousled beach waves look more polished, curls look bouncier, and sleek styles appear bolder. The centre part also frames your face, enhances your eyebrows and cheekbones and draws attention to your eyes. 

This style is easy to achieve, all you need is a comb and a steady hand. Simply find the centre of your scalp and slowly draw the comb backward, gently moving strands from one side to the other until a beautiful, straight centre part appears. It may feel unnatural to you at first, and you may need the assistance of hairspray or a pomade, but your hair will train itself into the centre part after a little while. 


Sleek and Slicked Ponies!

If a centre part is classic, then the slicked-back, sleek ponytail is simply timeless. The sleek pony is the equivalent of adding heels to a t-shirt & jeans combo, more dressed up than trainers but still comfortable and chic. 

You can experiment with your slicked back pony, have it poker straight throughout or add gentle waves to the ponytail. You could even try mixing our two hot hair trends with a centre part sleek ponytail, framing your face and looking fabulous!

Of course, with any hair trend, you must make sure your locks are their healthiest. Speak to your Makeover Palace stylist who can recommend the best salon treatments and home hair care products to ensure that your hair looks glossy, full of volume and vitality. 


Natural Looking Lashes

It may have taken two years of a pandemic to get to this point, but natural-looking beauty is firmly back in style! While you may find pops of colour or extreme makeup looks on the catwalk or a night out, the overall vibe of the beauty routine has changed to a more natural, relaxed finish. "I woke up like this" lashes are your best friend with this new beauty trend.

Natural looking lashes are the principal feature of this movement. Low mascara, natural looking lift and soft lash lines are in - in a big way. Embrace a more youthful, wide awake look with an eyelash lift and tint at our Kidlington beauty salon. This treatment gives greater definition to your face making your eyes appear larger, brighter and less tired. The effects last up to 6 weeks too!


Perfectly Polished Nails

Your manicure is where you can really let loose and have some fun this year! The nail polish trends for Spring include vibrant french manicures and a fun mixture of shades.

There are a wide range of trends for every season, but make sure your hands and nails always look great throughout the year by booking regular manicures at our Kidlington beauty salon. With our gel polish manicures you can be sure of glossy, chip-free nail colour for up to 3 weeks!

Looking for stronger nails but don't want to use acrylic? Ask about our new "builder gel" services for strengthened nails that look great and take less time!


Fluffy, Full Brows

Another more natural looking trend that you'll see this year is that of the fluffy, full eyebrows.  Fluffy brows are thicker, bold and always perfectly groomed. 

One basic rule to get thicker brows: stop plucking and shaping them! Let your brows grow in and reveal your natural shape. Of course, you can pluck unruly stray hairs, but stop attempting to create higher arches or thinner lines at home. If you were a victim of over-plucking in the 90s and early 00s, have lost brows to age, medical reasons or simply genetics, there are still ways to fake the fluff!

Book an appointment with our Precise Brows experts who can create your dream brows using a revolutionary 7 step brow shaping treatment to give you perfectly groomed, fuller looking, beautiful brows.
