From the haircuts to the hair colours, plus the celebrities that are doing them best – here is all your summer hair inspiration.


Low maintenance

While low maintenance hair is trending all year round, it’s particularly great for summer.  The best celebrities to look to for inspiration are Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Selena Gomez. Layered or blunt, the low maintenance isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. 

Go light 

For those who are keen to play it a little safer this summer when it comes to colour, Anthony Nader from assures that will always be a good go-to for a lighter colour that is a bit subtler. Hayden adds that “lived-in sun-kissed hair painted accents” are also a new season go-to. However, “less is more,” explains Nader, “as you don’t want to end up looking like Cadbury’s Top Deck chocolate”.

About Us



Chlorine, at least as far as your hair is concerned, is a chemical disinfectant added to the water in many swimming pools.

If pool owners didn't use chlorine, you likely wouldn't want to swim in the slime-infested water, to begin with. 

Short, occasional exposure to chlorinated water really won't damage your hair. 

It may make it feel dry for a day or so, however.

Regular exposure to chlorinated swimming pools can cause significant damage to your hair.

Disinfectants, in general, are used to break down and remove dirt, oil, and bacteria. 

Our scalps naturally produce oil to protect hair from damage and daily wear. 

Stripping the oil from your hair in a pool on a regular basis can cause over drying, increased porosity, and in some cases pretty significant damage if you don't take steps to prevent and treat your hair for chlorine exposure.

Can Chlorine Turn My Hair Green?

While it's true that chlorine gas is a greenish yellow colour, chlorine does not turn your hair green, having a Ph.D., let me explain in this article that it's actually oxidized metals (copper) in the water that bind to the protein in the hair shaft and deposit a green colour.

Now, before you go feeling bad for chlorine for getting a bad rap all these years, chlorine isn't completely innocent.

As explained above, regular exposure to chlorine can cause dry, porous hair.

Dry, porous hair (especially hair that has been chemically lightened or highlighted and is more likely to be damaged by chlorine exposure) is more likely to absorb chemicals and discoloration.

Who Is at Risk for Chlorine Damage?

Everyone that regularly exposes their hair to chlorinated water risks damage, but some hair types will damage faster or more severely.

If your hair meets the following criteria, you will want to take extra care to prevent and treat chlorine damage:

· Colour Treated Hair: especially if your hair is chemically lightened or highlighted.

· Chemically Treated Hair: permed or relaxed

· Dry Hair

· Thin or Fine Hair

· Previously Damaged Hair

How to Prevent Chlorine Damage

You can do a few things immediately before and after you hit the pool to prevent chlorine from damaging your beautiful locks.

· Saturate Your Hair with Water. Before you enter the pool, rinse your hair with clean tap water to saturate your hair. 

· Have you ever noticed that a sponge will only absorb so much water, and once it's full the water just runs off? 

· Your hair is similar to a sponge. If you saturate your hair with clean tap water, your hair will be less likely to absorb as much of the chlorinated water in the pool.

· Use a Swim Cap. If you're doing a lot of swimming or are concerned about damage, a swim cap can make a world of difference. 

· Try out a silicone swim cap as it is lightweight, breathable, and won’t snag your hair. Speedo makes a great one that comes in a variety of colours. Buy on

· Rinse, rinse, rinse. 

· After you exit the pool, a good clean rinse in the shower will start the process of removing the chlorine from your hair. 

· In fact, it's a good idea to rinse your hair often with clean water while swimming to keep flushing the chlorine and chemicals out.

· Shampoo. Shampooing your hair immediately after chlorine exposure is the best way to remove the bulk of the chlorine and stop the damage it may be causing to your hair. 

· Some shampoos are specially made to help remove chlorine and are a great idea for regular swimmers. 

· Johnson Baby shampoo Removal Shampoo is a great option for everyday use. 

· For kids, the same shampoo is recommended as it is gentle enough to use daily. It’s also a great option for adults with colour treated hair. 

· Moisture/Protein Balance. 

· Just as important as removing the chlorine, you have to replace the moisture and protein that the chlorine strips from your hair as soon as possible. 

· It's important to condition your hair well after shampooing, and I highly recommend a leave-in protein conditioner to soothe dry, frazzled hair and prevent split ends. 

· Mix cheap conditioner into a spray bottle ½ way the add water fill the rest shake and spray into your hair this is called Mist leave-in protein conditioners because it strengthens damaged hair and leaves it looking healthy and shiny. 

· How to Repair Chlorine Damage

If chlorine has damaged your hair, you'll know it. Chlorine damaged hair is very dry, frizzy (especially at the ends), bleached out, and often feels a little like straw

. It tangles and mats up easily. These tips can help you revive your chlorine damaged hair:

· Talk to your hairstylist. If you already have severe chlorine damage, go to a pro. Have her assess your hair's damage and recommend products or treatments to help and, at the very least, get a haircut to remove the ends that are likely suffering from the most damage. 

· Once your hair is over damaged, repair is out of the question and a haircut is your only hope for soft, shiny hair again.

· Clarify your hair. If chlorine has damaged your hair, it's likely that it's also building up in your hair hair and causing it to feel worse than it is. Try a clarifying shampoo, or try super-clarifying your hair with this quick at-home baking soda trick. An apple cider vinegar rinse is also a great option for removing the chlorine buildup.

· Check your scalp. Chlorine is not only drying to your hair shaft but can also cause drying to your scalp. If your scalp is severely dry and your hair is damaged, I highly recommend giving Nioxin products a try to repair damage, replenish moisture, and to return your scalp to its healthiest condition (even if your hair isn't thinning).

· Use a regular protein treatment. Replenishing the protein in your hair that's been stripped by the chlorine will help repair and rebuild your hair's strength.

· Deep condition your hair. While a regular daily conditioner is a must, if your hair is damaged by chlorine you'll need a weekly or bi-weekly deep conditioning treatment to seal in moisture and smooth the frizzy split ends. Coconut oil is another godsend for repairing damaged hair caused by chlorine.

· Be very patient. While you're working to repair your damaged hair, be patient. It takes time for your damaged hair to bounce back to life. In the meantime, try these tricks for healthier looking hair, right now.


This is How to Repair Damaged, Broken Hair

The road to healthy hair is paved with products, potions, protein, and deep conditioners. If your hair is fried or suffers from split ends, sun damage, tangles, and broken brittle pieces, it's time to take charge of your hair's health. It's easy to forget that our hair can be very fragile. Exposure to the sun, hair dryers, flat irons, and even daily brushing can take its toll and leave you wishing for a time machine.

It's important to remember that repairing damaged hair won't happen overnight, but over time. Developing these habits will get you on the road to recovery.

  At Phillip Michael's Of Mayfair we understand Damage hair


The products we use, and even the water we use to remove the products we use, can cause your hair to have a less-than-healthy sheen. Build-up is a serious issue with hair and can cause it to be limp, lifeless, and even cause your ends to split and feel brittle.

Getting this built up gunk off your hair is the first step in repairing damage and having healthier hair. A good clarifying shampoo, a baking soda clarifying treatment, or an apple cider vinegar rinse are great options for removing product build-up, hard water deposits, and mineral build-up on your hair. How often you need to remove build up really depends on the products you use and the water coming out of your tap. Most people could use a clarifying treatment at least once a month.   �� We have a wonderful Machine, that can repair hair damage it cost $50.00 for 20 minutes.  

Get a Good Deep Conditioning Treatment


Protect Your Hair From Sun Exposure

One of the biggest culprits of hair damage, color fade, and brittle ends is sun damage. If you're not protecting your hair from the sun's UV rays, the time to start is now. And even though we are more exposed in the summer, don't forget that the sun shines all year long.

After a long day of sun exposure (trips to the beach, hiking, outdoor sporting activities) it's a good idea to give your hair a nice long hydrating treatment to keep damage at bay and help your hair stay in tip-top condition.   

Try a Hot Oil Treatment   

Hot oil treatments infuse hair with shine and moisture. They're also super simple to do right at home. Apply your favorite hair oil generously to clean, towel-dried hair. You can also raid the kitchen and try olive oil or lemongrass oil.

Cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap and apply heat using a hot towel (fresh from the dryer), your hair dryer, or sit in the sun on a warm day. After heating the oil, allow your hair to cool at room temperature, and rinse with cool water. Hot oil treatments can be done one to three times per month depending on the amount of damage and how dry your hair is. Too much oil can cause your hair to appear greasy, so be careful not to overdo it.   

A weekly deep conditioning treatment is a must for repairing your hair's damage and preventing future breakage. 

But not all deep conditioners are the same.

It's important to find a deep conditioner that works with your hair type, won't weigh your hair down, or cause your hair to feel greasy. 

A deep conditioner is especially important if you colour your hair because damaged hair will fade faster than healthy hair. 

If possible, work with us so we can  find the right deep conditioning treatment for your hair type.   

Get a Haircut

Let's face it, if your tresses are damaged, your ends are breaking, brittle and splitting, and you feel like you're losing at good hair days, a haircut (or just getting regular haircuts) will save the day.

You don't have to chop it all off (although bobs and pixie haircuts can undo all your damage without having to buy all the products). 

If you're not ready to go short, get a healthy trim, try layers, reinvent your face framing, or give a nod to some trendy bangs. 

This will remove some of the damage and make the repair process a little easier

   So step 1. Come in and meet us face to face, step 2 let look at the damage together and find a good cheap way to help you help your hair.







How to Dye Hair with Coffee

By Dr Phillip Michael’s

Yes, you can dye your hair with coffee, but why would you want to? 

Well, traditional hair dyes usually harbor a long list of harsh chemicals like ammonia, coal-tar additives, and lead acetate. If you want to darken your locks with a natural alternative, a strong cup of brew can do the trick. It only lasts a few days and takes longer to build up in intensity, but it's totally worth it if you can avoid all the nasty stuff, don't you think? On darker locks, a regular coffee rinse produces a soft, nutty brown shade and helps to bring out amber highlights. Blond tresses typically darken a few shades to a gentle, light brown. Definitely choose organic coffee beans to avoid any unknown additives. The stronger the brew, the more effective this is. Opt for   

Finely ground espresso

For a bolder, darker colour. [things_needed_1] Brew 1 1/2 cups of ground coffee with 3 cups water in your coffeepot or French press as usual. This ratio is about three times stronger than a normal cup of coffee. Cool the brew completely to avoid burning yourself. Place the coffee in the sink with the drain closed, or in a large bowl. Mix in a couple tablespoons of conditioner if you want a little moisture boost for your hair.

Wash your hair with your regular shampoo

To remove any build-up or debris before beginning the dyeing process. 

Comb through you hair very gently to remove tangles for more even application. Dip your damp hair into the coffee and use a small cup to pour it over the back of your head and any hard-to-reach places. 

Take your time to ensure the colour coats every strand—keep pouring the coffee over your hair for a few minutes, and comb through any thick areas with your fingers. 

Remove your hair from the coffee and gently wring it out. 

Loosely pin your hair up on the top of your head to keep it out of the way, and

Let the coffee rinse sit in your hair for at least 20 minutes

Or up to one hour. Rinse your hair out completely in the shower. 

Shampoo with apple cider vinegar for a natural cleanser that helps seal in the colour. 

(Regular shampoo may strip the colour.) 

This process can be repeated for a few consecutive days to build up the colour and allow the coffee to penetrate the strands more effectively. 

The colour generally fades over a couple of weeks and can then be boosted at regular intervals in your hair care routine. How to Dye Dark Brown Hair Red Using Natural Products

Gather the ingredients. If you live in a tropical country you may be able to find fresh Jamaican sorrel. It's a bright red flower that can be used to add a ruby hue to your hair that sparkles in the sun. If you can't find fresh Jamaican sorrel, buy the dried version instead. You'll need two cups. In addition, get the following supplies:  

  • 2 cups water 1/4 cup honey Make the sorrel mixture. Place the two cups of water in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then add the sorrel, cover the pan with a lid, and turn off the heat. Let it soak for several hours so that the sorrel dye steeps into the water, then strain the water into a bowl and mix in the honey. Get your hair ready. Shampoo your hair as usual, but don't use conditioner. Conditioner stays in the hair and can prevent the dye from setting as well. Towel dry your hair and use a wide-toothed comb to remove Tangles. Apply the sorrel mixture. Put on latex or plastic gloves and use your fingers to spread the mixture through your hair from the roots to the tips. Make sure to distribute it well so that no strands of hair get left out.  If you want red highlights, choose just a few strands, separate them from the rest of the hair using strips of aluminum foil, and use an old paintbrush or pastry brush to apply the treatment. Cover your hair and let the dye sit. Use a plastic shower cap or plastic wrap to cover your hair so it doesn't dry out while the dye is soaking in. Let it sit for 4 hours or overnight. The longer the dye stays in your hair, the redder it will look. Rinse out the dye. Remove the cap or plastic wrap and rinse your hair with warm water. Shampoo and condition as usual, then dry your hair and style it.
  •  Juice two beets. The bright red juice will create a dark auburn hue when used with dark brown hair. You don't need the flesh of the beets, just the juice. If you don't have a juicers, run the beets through the blender and use a strainer to strain the juice from the pulp. Mix the beet juice with honey. Place the beet juice in a bowl and add 1/4 cup of honey. Stir it well until the mixture is completely combined. This simple concoction is ready to apply to your HAIR Wash your hair. Shampoo it as usual, but don't apply conditioner. The beet juice will work better on hair without the residue left by most moisturizing conditioners. Towel dry your hair and use a wide-toothed comb to work through any tangles. Apply the beet juice mixture. Put on latex or plastic gloves and use your fingers to smooth it over your hair, making sure every strand gets evenly covered. If you want auburn highlights, apply the mixture to individual strands separated from the rest of your hair with aluminum foil strips. Cover your hair and let the mixture sit. Put on a shower cap or a few sheets of plastic wrap and wait for the beet juice to turn your hair auburn. Let the mixture sit in your hair for 4 hours or overnight. Rinse out the beet juice. Run your hair under warm water to rinse out the juice and honey, then shampoo and condition as usual. When your hair is dry, you'll see the dark auburn tones shining through.
