I'm a hairdresser – here's how you can save serious money on your appointments | The Sun

A HAIR expert has explained why people need to start scheduling their appointments for the entire year.

Gemma Hill, who owns Luvely in Dalkeith, Midlothian, reckons organisation is key to getting the most out of your look.

The award-winning stylist, voted the top colourist in the country at the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards last year, also claims that it’ll save people money.

She says: “Think about what big events you have in your calendar and plan to get your full service done for these specific dates.

“And in the meantime, ask for a more low maintenance service.

“Ask your stylist if they have any promotions during the year or loyalty cards.

"Some salons will offer a percentage off your bill at certain times throughout the year or for your loyalty.

“And this is also an ideal time to book in for a full service when money off is applied.

“By booking in your future appointments, this gives you time to budget.

"With the cost of living, you can always ask your salon for a price quote before your appointment day.”

Gemma adds: “Booking in for a glossing service in between big appointments is a must and will keep your colour fresh and looking healthy too. 

“Ask your stylist on how you can cut down costs with your colour service, you don’t always have to get a full colour service every time. 

“There can be touch up services done and more lived in colours can be created to get more longevity out of your desired look.”
