McGill’s Hairdressing July Newsletter.
Product of the Month:
Davines SU Range
Summer is here! …well not quite in Scotland, but the holidays are upon us.
We all remember to protect our skin in the sun, why do we forget our hair? We damage our hair with straighteners, curlers, bleach and colour – all the more reason it needs extra protection in the sun.
The range features:
SU/hair&body wash (£14.40) delicately cleanses and hydrates hair and skin after sun exposure, helping prolong that hard-earned tan!
SU/hair milk (£22.55) is a protective spray that can be used on wet or dry hair. It has UVA & UVB filters to help keep hair smooth and colour shining bright.
SU/hair mask (£19.90) does exactly what aftersun cream does to your skin – it soothes sun-exposed hair with lots of moisture and nourishment.
Father’s Day Competition Winner:
Last month we ran a Father’s Day competition. Here’s Stan with his new ‘do after his daughter, Jenny, entered him into the draw on Instagram. #winner #fathersday #competition
Blowdry Junkie Continues…
Last month we offered 3 different blowdries, each with take-home products worth £39.85, for just £45. Because you lovely lot seemed to go mad for it, we are extending it until the end of July.
ONLY 10 SPACES LEFT so be quick ’cause they wont be there for long!

Emma is our ‘pirate of the ship’, steering us all in the right direction and keeping everything running smoothly – AKA our receptionist!
Her background is customer service based, working in retail and customer facing roles, which is why she’s a wonderful addition to the McGills team. She’s only been with us since May so what better way to introduce you to her than with a few Q&As?
Describe yourself in 3 words…
Clumsy, loyal, OCD!
What’s your favourite part of the job?
The free haircuts! Only joking… Definitely the people. The whole team and all the clients are so friendly and make work fun.
What’s your favourite movie?
Ocean’s 11. I love a good heist film.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Really cheesy property TV shows like Homes Under the Hammer. I can lose a whole Sunday on the couch!
Tell me your best joke…
Knock knock. Who’s there? Europe. Europe who? No, you’re a poo! (say it out loud)
Any future plans?
I’m applying to study Business Management part time around my work here at McGills. I’d also love to get a flat in the city so I don’t have to travel so far!
What’s your favourite Davines product and why?
So far I love the LOVE Curl shampoo and conditioner, they make my curls so bouncy and soft. I also like the Oil Non Oil because it helps my hair dry quicker and keeps it shiny but doesn’t weigh down my curls like some oils can.
Maintaining Your Mane This Summer
Who else likes to go a little lighter in summer? Most of us do. So with that in mind, here are our top tips for keeping your locks looking lush and feeling fine!
- Wash and tone using Davines Alchemy Silver Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help remove any unwanted yellow tones.
- A weekly NOUNOU hair mask. Being blonde comes with maintenance so be prepared to use a mask once a week. Apply to freshly shampoo’d hair, wrap in a towel to keep the heat in and leave for a minimum of 15 minutes.
- Avoid excessive heat and always use a heat protector – we recommend MINU hair shield. And if you use heat tools on your hair regularly get yourself a bottle of Olaplex No. 3 – you’re gonna need it!
- Monthly maintenance. Make sure you get your roots touched up every 4-6 weeks, Waiting longer will create ‘banding’ where there’s a noticeable difference in the tone of your newly dyed hair and the rest of your head.

Finally… The Best Bits from June:
June has been a busy month for the McGills team. Courses have been attended, dreamy cuts and colours achieved and work continues on the basement space.
The cherry on the cake came when Maya got her results from her HNC course – this brainbox only went and got an A!! Including the highest mark they’ve ever given anyone on the graded unit. #welldoneMaya
