JUNE 2019


We started Mavericks 20 years ago in March 1999. We wanted the salon to be different, to bring a city style salon into Alcester, we have experimented with many things, a coffee bar area, an piercing studio, we even had our own boutique in the salon.

We have had many challenges throughout the 20 years, 3 massive water leaks, a financial recession, a baby, Alcester flooding !. We even design our own hair brush, Dtach, used around the world.

India our daughter has now joined the team, she has grown up in the salon, and we are very proud that she runs the blowdry bar.  We have raised over £20000 for local charities including Shakespeare Hospice and the Greg fund.

We moved into our current location 5 years ago, and thanks to our wonderful team have gone from strength to strength.

Our strap line has always and will always be Doing things Differently, we strive to do everything to our best ability, we strive to ensure that our hairdressing is the best in the area and I believe that our team is the best.

We could not done anything without you our guests in the salon, I still remember my first guest that I did in the salon 20 years ago. We have always treated you as guests, not clients in the salon and that will always continue So I thankyou so much for your support over the 20 years ,

Our new Mavericks card is also now available so please speak to our team for more information.

Once again thankyou for your support in 2018

Best Wishes 

Sarah & Martyn

Spring /Summer hair trends

Colour trends

The seasonal hair colour trends normally tend to be the subtle changes,such as a move from dirty blondes to creamy blondes, or cool browns to warm. But for spring/summer 2019, we are seeing a spectrum of the prettiest pastels that have made it to the forefront of the latest fashion trends. We had Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes with her periwinkle blue hair up and matching princess style couture dress.

Models at Marc Jacobs s/s 2019 fashion shows had there hair coloured to match their outfits in shades of soft peach, baby blue , faded lilac and baby pink.

Pastels are here to stay for this summer and we will see more sophisticated pastels being created, with the likes off antique peaches and pale denim blues, fresh greens much than the more expected pinks and mauves as a natural progression of the trend.”

 The trend is about escapism and loving the idea of being fun and colourful,the colours used now are more technologically advanced than ever before to create a beautiful more modern tone.

Skin tone and eye colour needs to be assessed to get the right tone for each individual. It’s really hard to simplify which pastels suits which skin tones but, to generalise, the more unnatural colours like blues, greens and purples generally suit a darker skin tone, with the violets, corals, and pinks working well with a pale complexion.

Top hair trends for this season:

Here are a few of the key hair trends for spring / summer 2019, your stylist can always recommend if your looking for a new look or some inspiration.

Slicked back buns and ponytails and wet look finishes

Short crops with an androgynous look

Alice bands and head scarves

Pastel coloured hair

Wet look finished styling

Short fringes with a retro 60’s twist

Beachy waves

Mavericks Hair tip  -

Generally recognised as one of the year after year looks of summer, effortless, beachy waves is one hairstyle that we can't get enough of.

If your hair is lacking in volume, texture and shape, a salt spray is a great product to start with, especially when used with a diffuser.

Salt spray works best when applied to damp hair and then blow-dried or left to air-dry. This way it will help to define and set your natural waves as they appear, similar to when you actually go for a dip in the sea and then lay in the sun.

When applied to dry hair, more product is usually needed to achieve the same effect, which often results in accidental overload and that not-so-nice crunch.

How to:

Wash your hair, making sure you don't use too much conditioner.

To create the best waves, you want your hair to be as light as possible so it's not weighed down.

Once you've towel dried the hair, flip your head over and generously spritz your salt spray all over the ends. This will mean it's coated with texture but the roots have been avoided.

If you want a super natural, loose look - just let your hair dry naturally. However, if you want more of a statement, voluminous look, roughly blow dry your hair, using your fingertips to create volume in the direction of the air.

Turn on your tong until it's heated and section the hair.

For ultimate beach hair look, take sections of your hair, varying in size and wrap around the tong, holding for around 3-5 seconds.

Once the entire hair has been done, you can keep the curls tight, or for boho glamour, run your fingers through them, so they blend with each other.

Add some hairspray and you're good to go.                                                                                                                                                   


We are now using only the REF products which are all vegan, except for their waxes that do contain Bees wax. We feel that this move allows us to stop harming animals, plus vegan products help with the environment, which is important to all of us. We will also be offering soya milk with refreshments and also a selection of vegan chocolates etc with your refreshments. 

The permanent and semi permanent colour are now vegan, also so is our perm lotion.

MAVERICKS   THE ENVIROMENT  THE OCEAN                                                                                                                                                                                                The Mavericks team have become increasingly aware of the damage we are all doing to our oceans with single use plastics, so we have started to look at how we can help. We have already installed a water dispensing fountain and all the team have been given free water bottles, plus all the team have agreed not to bring into the salon any single use bottles. We are now looking at the rest of business to see how we can help.    




Those words might sound terrifying for anyone who survived the ‘80s, but stay calm – the new generation of perms could persuade you to join the curl world

The ’80s had some unfortunate moments when it came to perms – but Cher, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Beals and even Justin Timberlake proved that a perm can be cool and certainly no barrier to global megastar status. The word ‘perm’ brings up connotations of that super curly, old-style perm but technology and taste has moved on.

And now the perm is making a comeback – it’s one of the latest hair trends which have slowly been working its way back. The 2018 perm is much softer and gentler now.

The trick is to forget everything you already knew about perms. The new Maxi Perm (pictured above) – wound on long rubber rods rather than perm rollers and delivering full-on, unapologetically big and lively curls like Carrie Bradshaw in the first series of Sex and the City – looks great with a simple, longer shape and only needs a mousse to style it. Leave in treatments help the hair feel softer and look more believable.

And then there’s the softer Braid like Perm (pictured left). This is the perm for 2018 it is great for those with fine, lifeless, hard-to-manage hair. The result is super-soft, loose waves that alter the texture of the hair – making it look fuller and thicker and easier to style.
