September’s here which means now is the perfect time to get a new look to wow your friends at the start of the new academic year!

Pop into your local Segais Hair & Beauty Salon in Didcot or Wantage and our friendly stylists will be delighted to talk you through some hair ideas to suit you and your lifestyle. 

We also offer a brilliant 20% Student Discount especially for you, so why wait?

In this article you’ll find some easy styling suggestions for school, college or university.  Just the inspiration you need freshen up your look this autumn!

Areas We Cover



Oxfordshire and surrounding areas

A Girly Bun

Perfect if you’re very active, it’s easy to whip your hair into a quick bun and you’re ready to go.  A loose bun is Meghan Markel’s signature look so if it’s good enough for a princess, it’s certainly a good look for school!  For the perfect “tidy” bun or a more intricate upstyle – maybe for a prom, party or social – book in for a cool updo at your local Segais salon in Wantage or Didcot.

Barely-There Waves

Shiny, subtle waves can be a gorgeous look to show off at school or at university. To rock this style, all you need is some texturising mousse and a bit of scrunching – the messier the better!  More structured waves also look great but can take longer to create (use your heated styling wand or straighteners to achieve a relaxed wavy hairstyle).  It’s a look worth getting up a bit earlier for before heading to school or uni!  


Braided hairstyles aren’t just for primary school these days!  With looks from classic Dutch braids, to edgy fishtail braids and halo braids, you can add your personality to your braided look and it can be as messy or as tidy as you like!  The perfect plaits can be difficult to achieve by yourself, but the friendly stylists at your local Segais hair salon will be happy to help and advise you achieving braided beauty!

Rainbow Colours for Your Hair

To really turn heads and create a whole new you, banish dull hair colour right now and opt for a stunning fashion hair colour at Segais instead!  We offer every hair colour you can think of and can talk you through the process, assess your hair, and create the ideal colour to suit you.   Find out more here.

Of course, it’s important to bear in mind that permanent hair colour does require some maintenance if you want to keep it looking vibrant,  so if your student budget won’t allow for this, talk to your Segais colour technician who’ll be happy to suggest some semi-permanent hair colour alternatives.
