Covid Update

Thank you all for your patience and support. It is fantastic to see you all! Please keep reading here for further updates as regulation keeps changing.

Appointment times - All hair has to be washed. You can do this just before your appointment or we can wash your hair in the salon. We have vulnerable spaces for those who wish to get their hair completed, but are worried about coming into contact with others. The salon will only have a certain number of people in at one time, we are not over booking and the stylists are cleaning in between every client.

Appointments MUST be made - We will not accept walk ins. Anyone who attempts to walk in will unfortunately be turned away, you must contact us via phone 01243 583055 or email to book in your appointment. 

No Waiting Area - Once entering the salon you will be escorted to your station. There will be no availability for the next customer to be allowed to wait in the waiting area. Please be on time to ensure we can keep to our schedule. 

Disinfecting - Before and after exiting the salon the door handle will be wiped with disinfectant. The station you will be sat at will have been cleaned. We would politely ask that you use sanitizer on your hands.

Card Only - We will not accept cash payment. Contactless payment is appreciated.

Masks - From the 8th of August we will require you to wear a mask to enter the salon. If you do not have one, or forgot your own, we will provide you with one for the charge of £1. 

Thank you so much for your understanding. We know it is strange and for a little while, the atmosphere you know and love from Elite Design & Cut will be different. But we are doing this to ensure everyone who visits us will stay safe in our care. Please consider before your appointment if you have any symptoms, or if you have been in contact with someone showing signs. In this case, please contact us and inform us that you won't be visiting. Thank you so much for your loyalty. See you soon!

Heat Damage

If you like to style your hair with heated tools, you are likely causing damage. This can mean split ends, dry texture and generally lifeless hair. What do you do with lifeless hair, you try to tame it using hot tools. It is a catch - 22 situation, but it doesn't have to be. Investing in a spray on heat protector to line the hair before using straighteners or curlers, will reduce damage and allow you a break from having to style it constantly. We recommend one of the Sexy Hair heat protection products. Click the link to find out more about it.

Want Shine?

Add two tablespoons of honey to your conditioner bottle and shake well. Honey helps to seal moisture into the hair which makes it look shiny! 

Brush vs Comb

Just remember a brush is for dry hair and a comb is for wet hair. Why? A brush is too harsh for wet hair and can cause the hair to stretch and break. The great thing about a comb is you will likely have to battle your hair in sections, and this will not only reduce the amount of knots, but stop damage. 

Product of the month...

To be used once a week aftyer shampoo, this hair mask works wonders! If you have brittle or damaged hair this will improve your hair texture and work to rejuvenate. Massage into the head, wait and then wash. The smell is glorious.
