8 on-trend hairstyles on REAL salon clients
We stalked the IG pages of some of our favourite hair salons and stylists who've shared their gorgeous client pictures
The Salon: @Moiso_london
The Look: Can we just take a moment to appreciate how fierce this taper cut is? Moiso in South London has gained a legion of followers for curating this signature style. Embrace the cut life and be rewarded with shorter wash days and an even shorter hair regime that will have you out of the house in no time.
How long it lasts: Although shorter hair requires less maintenance, it goes without saying that regular trips to the salon or barbershop will be crucial for upkeep. Book early to avoid disappointment.
The Salon: @juniorgreenhair
The Look: Lengthy natural hair is treated to a beautifully bone-straight silk press. The client's hair is also prepped with a deeply moisturising conditioning treatment to keep the curl bonds intact.
Price: From £60
How long it lasts: Extend the life of a silk press by wrapping the hair at night and adding a light oil to keep it tangle-free. Generally silk presses last until wash day and are not a permanent straightening solution. Also, remember to stay out of the rain or humid conditions to prevent curl reversion.
The Salon: @HypeCoiffureUK
The Look: If you had any fears about going bleach blonde, this pretty client picture should see your reservations melting away. Paired with a blade cut, this androgynous style comes over edgy and sexy. Just make sure you visit the salon to achieve this look to avoid unnecessary damage.
Price: Prices vary, call 0207 223 3800 for enquiries.
How long it lasts: Longevity depends on how fast your hair grows. You can visit a barber for a quick shape up but make sure you head back to the salon to top up your colour.
The Salon: @Becrochetcreation
The Look: Crochet locs are set to be one of the most in-demand protective styles of the summer so we suggest you get your appointment in early. This stunning ‘do with ruby highlights is super cute and great for holidays. Push the boundaries by experimenting with different lengths and colours.
Price: Starts from £80
How long it lasts: Crochet locs can last up to 12 weeks depending on how you maintain your hair and how fast it grows. You can revamp the style by having the hairline re-crocheted after six weeks.
The Salon: @Simplyg_hair
The Look: This satisfied customer looks sensational rocking her passion twists. Consider this the perfect protective style for transitioning to natural hair. Talk to your hairdresser to find out which installation method would suit you and your hair goals best.
Price: Braids start from £50
How long it lasts: Up to two to four weeks. Use an oil sheen to nourish the scalp and a braid spray maintain the quality of the hair. Also, try to resist the urge to leave your braids in for too long to avoid breakage and scalp issues.
The Salon: @Thinkprettysalon
The Look: Natural textured hair is cut into an exaggerated silhouette that oozes modernity and a high-fashion aesthetic. For more inspo head over to the multi awardwinning salon's feed.
How long it lasts: If you decide to cut your own natural hair, be mindful of the fact that you will need to trim it every four to six weeks to maintain the shape. Alternatively, you can use yaki textured extensions that will last four to eight weeks or a glueless lace wig will achieve the same desired result.

Price: Colour treatment £160-£190 excluding a blowdry/ cut and finish.
How long it lasts: The colour will need to be topped up every four to six weeks, and remember to deep condition your hair in-between treatments to prevent it from becoming dry and brittle.
