If you’re a bottle blonde like Alice, keeping your ends in check is important. Regular bleaching can wreak havoc on even the healthiest of hair types, so ridding yourself of frazzled ends early in the year can often ensure a healthier, more conditioned look come summer…
To kick things off, Ozzie gives Alice a full consultation to ensure she gets exactly what she’s looking for. Face shape and hair type are all taken into account before the session begins.
Before we start on the scissor action, a serious hose down is required. Ozzie’s pro tip? Once a week, shampoo your hair twice. The first time it removes dirt and oil, but the second time will allow ingredients to really penetrate the hair leaving it super soft and sleek.
For the next step, Ozzie then combs and separates the hair into sections to prepare for the cut.
Let the cutting begin – no turning back now! Ozzie first starts on the nape of the neck and works his way up the head.
Alice chose a clean, straight-edge style for her bob, meaning no fiddly layers. Ozzie removes a couple of inches from the entire head section by section, before ensuring the edges are perfect.
It wouldn’t be a trip to the salon without a professional blow dry to finish it all off. Ozzie applies a few spritzes of styling spray to Alice’s hair to give it added shine and bounce.
Ta da! It’s amazing what a little hair update can do. Alice’s new bob looks seriously swishy, and those dry unruly ends are all but gone. That’s what we call kicking off the New Year with style…
Scared to go short? This hair transformation might just change your mind…
If you’re looking for a change to kick off the new year but aren’t quite sure where to get started, treating yourself to a sleek new haircut is always a great first step. Whether you go for something totally transformative or just want a chop and tidy up, there’s something about a fresh new ‘do that beckons new beginnings and gives you a serious spring in your step while you’re at it. With that in mind, our friend Alice decided to take the plunge this January and go bold with a new bob haircut at the Ozzie Rizzo salon in Mayfair. Naturally, we came along for the ride…

So maybe Emily Ratajkowski didn’t quite take the pixie plunge (that pic was a wig, shucks), but, she’s given us some serious salon inspiration, and we’re ready for more. Cara Delevingne has been at it more recently, debuting a blunt-cut bob for the Puma campaign, so is this the cut to be testing out for the summer? I’d say so. Keeping hair shorter has endless perks – not just using less shampoo... If you’re a roll-out-of-bed-and-go kinda’ person, this cut was made for you. A spritz of dry shampoo on days where sleep matters more than shine, and a few slipped in hair slides…View the board
I think autumn gets a bad rap. Yes, it means summer is over - did it even begin? - and yes, it can be an absolute nightmare to dress for - freezing in the mornings, boiling by lunchtime - but it’s all my warm-toned dreams come true. So, you can imagine my joy at the copper hair trend. Bonfires, golden leaves, pumpkin spice: super-warm tones are inherently autumn (read: I'm already on board). Auburn is a failsafe - the brown undertone flatters all skin tones - but if you’re after added-drama, go for a rich copper. Just like rainbow brights,…View the board
So you've finally decided to quit 'growing out' your hair and snip it off. Props to you. Your turtle neck will look all the better with freshly chopped locks atop of it. But, which style to go for? When considering your cut, it's important to weigh up three factors – hair texture, face shape, and your commitment to styling. Real life example: static hair is infuriating, so I went for a boyfriend bob. Since there's a big bundle of do's to choose from, we've pulled together a collage of inspiration pictures. A catalogue for your hairstylist, so you can pluck your…View the board
