Happy New Hair... A guest feature with Johnny from Seckingtons ...


Hair and personal style go hand in hand, when your personal style and your hair look good, you feel great. I am delighted to feature my guest Johnny the leading man, session stylist and founder at Seckingtons of Northampton and Milton Keynes. Seckingtons mission is to make sure that every guest feels listened to and enjoy the ultimate relaxing experience, which as a client and recommending my clients, I totally vouch for! Just as I do at Own Your Style with Janine, Seckingtons want their guests to leave feeling and looking fantastic .


Creative talent is something that runs through Johnny’s veins, with career highlights that rival even some of the biggest names. National finalist in three categories at the Aveda Pure Image Awards, Johnny spent two consecutive years representing hairdressing giants Schwarzkopf Professional as a member of their Young Artistic Team. He’s also a favourite at Hairdressers Journal’s grand exhibition Salon International, where he has presented for thousands of hairdressers and press from all over the world, got the stars ready for the BAFTAs and has even styled the runways of London Fashion Week and his team recently styled the models for my Own Your Style Christmas styling event in Milton Keynes . As a training champion in Northampton, Johnny is also an Aveda Styling Professional and is often found leading courses at Aveda’s training academy down in the capital.


Seckingtons guests love Johnny’s infectious passion for all things hair and I asked him for his New Year top 5 tips for healthy hair in 2020 ....



Tip 1

If you are feeling like your hair and your body is both a bit dehydrated from all the Xmas partying, this is a perfect time to recoup and invest in a hydrating treatment for your hair. The Pureology Super food treatment has everything you need to rehydrate and strengthen your hair from the inside.




Tip 2


Did you stay blonde for Winter? This winter we saw more clients than ever stay blonde after the summer. We loved this trend because you can really change your look for the winter without going dark. Warm up your colour by adding warm toffee hues and an ultra rich golden gloss. We found ourselves doing this over and over again in the salon and it looked gorgeous!!



Tip 3

Ventured into the dark side? After all of the events pre and post Christmas, your beautiful colour can wash out quickly. Try using the Kerastase Reflection range to protect your colour, lock it in and give shine like you have never seen. There is a reason this is one of our best selling ranges. Not quite ready to have your hair recoloured? Pop in for a semi? They are damage free and can really enhance your previous colour. Great way to get a bit more longevity out of your colour.

Tip 4

The Nano Keratin smoothing treatment really has revolutionised frizzy hair. Formaldehyde free and no need to keep it in your hair for 4 days like the first one which was launched a few years ago. Think easy to manage glossy hair, frizz free and 50%  less drying time. Whats not to love. This was one of our best selling services for 2019 and anticipating that we will be doing more and more in 2020!

Tip 5

Finding that you are struggling with wearing your hair long but don't want to let go of any length? Try putting a peek a boo fringe in. They sit normally on the cheekbone, but you can wear them longer or shorter.Because they a worn "open" you don't need to worry about getting back to us for a fringe trim all the time. They grow out beautifully and really enhance your facial features.




Brilliant tips there from Johnny, so if you'd like to Kick start your year to a stylish you - make a booking at Seckingtons Milton Keynes or Northampton visit the website for more details and to book.
