We received a lovely review and write-up from beauty blogger Gin Fuelled Bluestocking recently.

Blogger Charlie visited our Selfridges salon for a cut and blow dry and was very complimentary about her experience in the salon, and the finished results.

As Charlie herself admits in the piece, her hair was a little dry at the ends and had been exposed to lots of harsh home-colour products in the past.  At the backwash we gave her hair a good shampoo and used a conditioning mask.  We then treated her to the wonderful Kérastase Fusio-Dose – a intensive treatment perfectly customised to each client.  The clever product allows you to freshly mix ingredients to suit the specific needs of the hair. For Charlie we mixed ingredients for coloured hair with those for dry hair.

After a good cut, Charlie left with shiny, well conditioned hair and a vibrant colour which she says still looks fabulous and healthy weeks after her visit!

As we have mentioned previously we have started to work with the Little Princess Trust who are an amazing charity that provide children, who have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment, with real-hair wigs. As the wigs cost the charity up to £2,000 any donations that can be made make an incredible difference. Celebrity supporters of the charity include Jessie J and actress Sai Bennett.

As we are one of their listed salons, the charity contact us if they have someone wishing to make a hair donation in the area. Recently the Little Princess Trust put us in touch with Gemma Bentley after she contacted them wishing to donate her hair to the charity.

There are a range of criteria that your hair must fit into for it to be suitable for donation. These include clean hair in good condition, straight or curly, less than 10% grey hair, coloured/bleached/highlighted or layered. The minimum hair donation length is 17cm.

Fortunately Gemma’s hair fitted into these categories so she was able to donate. We gave her a stylish cut after loosing all that lovely hair (to a worthy cause, of course!). The before and after pictures below show just how much hair has been donated – fantastic!

If you want to follow in Gemma’s footsteps but have a few more questions first contact us on 0161 834 1422 or for more information visit thelittleprincesstrust.org.uk.

Our time so far at Selfridges Exchange Square has been full of glitz, glamour and more than one or two famous faces!

This week the Peter Marcus Selfridges team styled the hair of not one but two celebrities.  Make-up artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury was in-store to perform a live demonstration of her special edition The Supermodel make-up range.  We were asked to style Charlotte’s hair ahead of the event, along with her model for the afternoon…. the gorgeous Abbey Clancy!

Our stylist James was the lucky boy who got to style the pair.  Ms. Tilbury opted for soft waves for her stunning red locks.  The finished result for Ms. Clancy was soft, bouncy curls that were full of volume – the perfect look, befitting to The Supermodel make-up collection she would be modelling.

The event proved extremely popular with hundreds of fashionistas, beauty bloggers and fans flocking to see the demo.

Get your slice of the glamourous Peter Marcus Selfridges pie and book an appointment with us on 0161 838 0513.

Peter Marcus Selfridges salon styles the hair for Victoria Beckham

Models ready for the Victoria Beckham fashion event at Selfridges Exchange Square. Hair by Peter Marcus.

Style Queen Victoria Beckham was in town last week to showcase her SS15 collections at Selfridges Exchange Square.

Due to our new salon location at the city centre store, we were asked to style the hair for the exclusive fashion event!

A team of models, specifically selected for the event, were given the Peter Marcus Selfridges salon treatment by our stylist James. He was charged with styling the girls according to the brief from the VB style team. The hair needed to compliment the outfits perfectly, however a common theme of loose hair worn down was selected for most of the models.

The coveted fashion event on Wednesday 19th November saw Mrs Beckham host a private viewing for around 70 guests, including top fashion journalists, to discuss her new designs for SS15.

Victoria Beckham RTW and Accessories, Victoria Victoria Beckham and Victoria Beckham Denim are available at Selfridges Exchange Square and online at Selfridges.com.

To book an appointment at the Peter Marcus Sefridges salon please call 0161 838 0513 or complete our online booking form.

Four of our favourite hair styles for Christmas 2014

With so many events over the festive period there are a huge amount of outfits to plan and hairstyles to co-ordinate. Family parties, work events and of course, New Years Eve, your hair will have to be looking its best.

At Peter Marcus Christmas is one of our favourite times of the year, mainly because we get to experiment with different party looks for our clients, from plaits to waves, every customer wants a look tailored to their needs.

centre parted waves 2We have chosen 4 of our favourite styles for the 2014 party season:

Centre parted waves

A classic all year round, a statement centre parting paired with relaxed natural looking waves would be perfect for any occasion this Christmas. Popular amongst a range of different celebrities this style gives an effortless ‘I woke up like this’ look leaving people wondering if you have naturally tousled locks.

sleek pony tail

Sleek ponytail

Structured, sleek and stylish -perfect for the festive season. A tightly pulled back pony, parted however you like with the hair smoothed down and fastened high or low. Getting this look right isn’t easy.  To achieve this look in the salon we use products to create a high shine, a dedicated grooming hair brush and an eye for detail. Paired with a cocktail dress and a bold lip colour, this is a sophisicated look.

volume (1)

High volume blowdry

You can never go wrong with a traditional blow dry however, give it that Christmas sparkle and ask for a little more volume than usual. We think that any length, cut or colour would suit this style plus this versatile look can be styled into a messy or poker straight fashion depending on what you would like.

messy updo

Undone updo

All up, half down, high, low, plaits, curls, waves there are a lot of variations on an undone updo. A messy updo is perfect for events when you want to feel glamorous but not too dressed up. Even if you’re not sure exactly what style you would like one of our trained stylists will be able to create the perfect updo for you.

If you’ve already decided on the style you want we will be happy to create it for you however, if you are unsure our highly trained stylists will be able to decide what would suit you best.

Our Christmas bookings are being taken up quickly so if you want one of our stylists to create your party hair you will need to book as soon as possible. To book an appointment please call the Peter Street salon 0161 834 1422 or the Selfridges Exchange Square salon on 0161 838 0513. You can also use our online booking form.

Selfridges hair salonWe are so excited to be setting up a second home in Selfridges Exchange Square from the start of October!

The new Selfridges hair salon follows our highly successful pop-up blow-dry bar at the retail giant earlier this year.  Throughout May and June the Peter Marcus team were housed on the top floor of the Manchester department store, offering customers blow-dry and curl styling.  The latest venture is building on this success, this time with a full range of salon services.

We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with Selfridges, having styled numerous in-house fashion shows for them, and we’re thrilled to be working with them once more.  It’s a really exciting opportunity for us to offer our expertise to Selfridges customers, who we know demand the very best.

Following the ethos of ‘the best’, we will be exclusively using the new Matrix COLORINSIDER™ technology at the Selfridges hair salon.  The no ammonia, permanent hair colour offers high-definition colour with a shade palette including vibrant reds and rich browns.  Cutting, styling and other hair treatments will also be available.

The 300 square foot salon will be nestled in the new Beauty & Fashion Jewellery Hall, located in the Selfridges basement, amongst many other luxury brands.  The interior design of the Peter Marcus salon will feature our own branding but will of course be in-keeping with the classic Selfridges theme, to ensure continuity across the store.  Three stylists and two assistants will be on hand at all times to offer top class styling to Selfridges customers.

The Peter Marcus Selfridges hair salon will have an initial five month tenancy from October 2014 to February 2015.

For bookings and enquiries please call 0161 838 0513.

Beauty Hall, Lower Ground Floor, Selfridges & Co, 1 Exchange Square Central, Manchester, M3 1BD.

Why we don’t recommend home hair colour http://www.petermarcus.co.uk/why-we-dont-recommend-home-hair-colour/ http://www.petermarcus.co.uk/why-we-dont-recommend-home-hair-colour/#comments Wed, 10 Sep 2014 11:57:06 +0000 http://www.petermarcus.co.uk/?p=2123 Do you use home hair colour out of a box? Do so at your own risk. Leave it to the professionals for perfect results everytime without any of the nasty side effects.

home hair colourDo you use home hair colour out of a box?  Do so at your own risk.

We’re not into scaremongering, but many home hair colour boxes just aren’t safe.  Many come with information that describe some common side effcts but often these can be just the tip of the iceberg.  We’ve come across the following advice via ModernSalon.com that details some of the lesser know side effects to home hair colour kits:

Blistering: The chemical cocktails in typical hair dyes can lead to blisters on various parts of the body. The scalp and hairline are most commonly affected, of course, because that’s where the dye rests on the skin. But it’s also possible to develop blisters on the face, neck and elsewhere. Chemicals easily penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream, producing effects in apparently unrelated areas of the body.

Rash: A severe rash is not only potentially scarring, but it can also indicate an allergic reaction. When the offending hair dye has worked through the system and the rash begins to heal, rubbing in some natural aloe vera gel can prevent or reduce the appearance of scars.

Swelling: Puffy face and eyes are a clear warning sign that the body is rejecting something foreign; chemical-based hair dye has been known to cause this reaction in many people. In a worst case scenario, the swelling of soft tissue could make it hard to breathe or swallow, a life-threatening situation.

Itchy, dry scalp: While not likely to land anyone in the hospital, achieving a particular hair colour doesn’t need to come at the cost of skin irritation.

Thinning hair: Chemical hair dyes are known to cause thinning hair and hair loss. Look for more hair than usual falling out in the shower or after brushing.

Liver enzymes: The most serious of all adverse reactions, elevated liver enzymes are a silent danger – they’re undetectable unless a doctor conducts a blood test. Elevated enzymes can result when the liver goes into overdrive trying to filter toxins like those found in most boxed hair dyes from the bloodstream.

Frighteningly, some of these side effects may take days or even weeks to develop causing many user not to suspect their home hair colour to be the problem.  Our advice?  If you experience any of the above symptoms, stop using chemical hair dye immediately.

For perfect results every time, without any of the nasty side effects, use a professional hair salon.  At Peter Marcus we have experienced colourists who will take the time to colour-match our vast range of colouring products to your skin tone.  Application is carried out to industry standards and we use only the best, fully approved products throughout the salon.  Don’t take the risk; book an appointment with the Peter Marcus team today.  Call us on 0161 834 1422 or use the booking form on our website.
