We think there are plenty of reasons why now is the time to go for the chop!  Here are our top ones:

#1. Styling Short Hair Is Much Easier!

Short hair can be fun to style using styling products alone!  Speak to your Segais stylist for recommendations from our Joico range.

#2. Save Time On Washing and Drying!

Cut down your styling time with a short hair cut!  Great whether you're dashing to work or enjoying your summer holidays.

#3. Short Hair Frames Your Face

Don't hide under long locks!  Having short hair can enhance your natural features such as highlighting cheek bones, jaw line and neck. It is also a fabulous way to create a bold statement!

#4. Keep Cool For Summer

Embrace the summer heat with a cool and edgy short hair style!

#5. Short Hair Can Be Healthy Hair

Maintain your new short style with regular visits to your Segais stylist to keep your hair in shape and encourage healthy hair growth.  We can recommend the perfect products to keep your hair bouncy and shiny.

Absolutely!  More and more models and celebrities are rocking a variety of short hair looks.  Simply take a look at Instagram or TikTok for more inspiration!

Yes, with most short hairstyles there are multiple different looks you can try out.  A buzz cut or seriously short haircut offers fewer options, but slightly longer short hair can be straightened, curled, slicked back, texturised, or even given a cool quiff!

Don't worry, there’s a short hairstyle to suit everyone. We’ll take into account your face shape and hair colour to make sure you get the cropped look that suits you and enhances your features.

Yes, the good news is that 72 Hair Keratin Smoothing Gel can be applied to hair that has undergone any type of chemical treatment including straightening procedures .  Speak to your Segais stylist who will select the most appropriate 72 Hair product for your hair type.

We recommend applying the colour before your smoothing treatment, so it can help to lock the colour in.  The keratin treatment will enhance the vibrancy of your colour.

If you can't colour your hair before your treatment, we recommend waiting at least 7 days after treatment before your colour appointment.

The smoothing treatment is designed to work with your hair's natural texture so the result depends on your hair type. If you have unruly, frizzy hair, you will see a massive reduction in frizz and curls. If your hair is naturally straight, it will appear shinier and smoother. All hair types will gain strength and be more manageable.

We stock 72 Hair shampoos and conditioners which are designed to maximise the life of your smoothing treatment.  Speak to your Segais stylist who will be able to advise you on aftercare.

We recommend that you do not wash your hair for the first 72 hours after the treatment. However if you have curly hair and want to keep more of the curl then wash your hair after 24 hours, but this may reduce the longevity of the results.

For the first 72 hours after your smoothing treatment we recommend the following:

  • Do not get your hair wet (in the shower, pool or sea).  If your hair does get wet during this time, restraighten it using titanium coated straighteners.
  • Do not use any hair care products, including hair spray, gel and mousse.
  • Do not tie up your hair.

Absolutely!  The sunshine will show off the glossy shine on your perfect hair!   We do however recommend using a UV protector for your hair.  Speak to your Segais stylist about the best product to use.

We usually recommend a course of 8 treatments, but we will talk this through with you following your initial consultation and once we have assessed your particular skin concerns. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after each course has finished to help maintain the results achieved.

You will see results immediately and with each subsequent treatment your skin will continue to look progressively better.

Crystal microdermabrasion uses a sterile compound which has no risk of allergic reaction.  We will however carry out a patch test on the back of your forearm for added reassurance.

We usually recommend a course of treatments every 7 to 10 days but we will discuss this with you at your initial consultation.

No downtime is required as this is a gentle treatment.  You will however have to be careful to wear a SPF after treatment to protect your skin.

Our NEW Collagen Lift Treatment is a skin-tightening non-surgical procedure favoured by celebrities wanting to retain their youthful, glowing skin.  It uses radiofrequency to tighten and firm loose or sagging skin.

Collagen Lift can help to improve the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, sagging and loose skin, scars, wrinkles and fine lines.  It can be used on areas including your eye area, face, neck, décolleté, tummy, arms, knees, bottom and thighs.

Collagen Lift is a painless procedure that feels similar to a hot stone massage as your therapist passes the ceramic wand over your body.  There’s no recovery time needed and no scars.

Collagen Lift is a highly effective treatment.  The results can be seen instantly– your skin will be visibly tighter.  You’ll continue to see improvements for up to three months after your treatments end as your body’s natural processes continue to work to firm up your skin.  Even better, the results last for up to two years!

Yes, Collagen Lift is for anyone who wants tighter, smoother, more lifted skin on the face or body.  It’s the perfect choice for anyone who wants to learn to love their skin with a gentle but extremely effective treatment, rather than harsh, invasive medical procedures.

If you book the recommended course of six treatments you’ll get 10% off!

Your beauty therapist will use a specialised wand to direct a fine stream of crystal over the treatment area and mild suction will remove the resulting crystal & skin debris. This will reveal younger, healthier looking skin.

This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin.

No, microdermabrasion is not an aggressive treatment and during the procedure you will feel no discomfort.   Our aim is for you to feel relaxed and pampered.

The SkinBase Microdermabrasion Facial™ can target a wide range of skin problems.  Microdermabrasion can be used to treat issues ranging from stretch marks, fine lines, acne scarring and dull, tired skin to ageing skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

There are a wide range of benefits to choosing microdermabrasion, which explains why it is such a popular treatment. As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or injectables.

For anti-ageing treatments, all skin types and tones from ages 28 and up will benefit the most from a SkinBase™ Microdermabrasion Facial. For problematic skin including acne scarring all age groups can benefit.  Children under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent who will need to co-sign the treatment form.
