Curly Hair 5pm Deals

Curly hair. It’s back. You heard it here first. You will be heading for a perm by the end of this year, mark my words! I touched on this in the Beauty Trends post the other week, but with the return of 80s-tastic Stranger Things this week, curly hair was at the forefront of my mind.

And on my head. I have straightened the life out of my curls for decades now, but in the last month or so decided to embrace them, as you can see on my Instagram below. This look was created with a diffuser – remember them?!


I’ve also been using Paul Mitchell’s Curl range Shampoo and Conditioner, and have been very impressed. The Spring Loaded Frizz-Fighting Shampoo (£17.95 200ml) washes away all the frizz and tangles that curly hair can have. It gently cleanses and conditions the curl without roughing up the cuticle. It uses sulfate-free surfactants to clean and is colour safe, paraben-free, vegan and gluten-free. I’ve really enjoyed using this, but Paul Mitchell is my favourite haircare brand, so I may be a bit biased.

The Spring Loaded Frizz-Fighting Conditioner (£18.50 200ml) is a rinse-out curl detangler, and it’s excellent. It really did detangle my curls in an instant. It’s a creamy, hydrating formula, that leaves your hair soft and frizz-free. It contains jojoba oil and hydrating natural extracts to help smooth the hair, but not interfere with the curl.

There are three styling products in this range as well. Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream-Gel (£15.75 200ml) will help give you more of a wave than a curl. It’s humidity resistant, in a cream-gel formula and it forms and separates, and adds lots of texture to create those tousled beachy waves. It has soothing and smoothing mushroom extract to fight frizz.

Full Circle Leave-In Treatment (£18.85 200ml) is for those that have heavy duty curls, and need to tame the frizz, detangle, and replenish each and every one of them. You leave this in, and the creamy formula does all of that without weighing hair down.

Finally, the Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer (£22.25 150ml) will help define, separate and tame unruly curls and waves into perfect ringlets. It’s a dual formula of hydrating cream and smoothing gel, which work together to give you soft, gorgeous, perfect curls – with no crunch! That is one 80s trend we do NOT need to revisit!

All products are available at Paul Mitchell salons. Visit paul-mitchell.co.uk for stockists.

If you really want curls and don’t have them, then I have found it – the one perm offer on 5pm at the moment! You can unleash your inner Deirdre Barlow at last!
Head to Shapers of Glasgow on the Dumbarton Road, and part with £50 for this offer and leave with a full head of curls!
If you fancy trying out some curls, before committing to the full head perm, then book in for a styling appointment.
At Flawless By Danielle in Glasgow’s East End, you can book in for GHD curls, for just £15, Tuesday to Friday. Created with GHD straighteners, these curls can be as tight or loose as your stylist can get them, and should last for a few hours, but be realistic, depending on the type of hair you have.
Have you tried Chopstick Curls? These are created using a styler that is square, like the end of chopsticks, and the tightness of the curl depends on the size of the chopstick tool. The smaller, the tighter the curl. The result is pretty amazing. Book into Be Beautiful in Glasgow’s Gallowgate for Chopstick Curls, priced £20 for hair above shoulder length, and £30 for hair that is longer, or extensions.
At Tease Hair & Makeup in the city’s west end, you can try Pin Curls – for the retro look, for £20. The salon does also have offers on wand curls and GHD curls, so you can decide which you think is best for you. Both of these options are £15.
