New Year’s Eve Styling Tips With Hooker & Young

Out with a bang...
Hooker & Young

Where has this year gone? I can’t quite believe that New Year is almost upon us.

We will all, most certainly look back at 2020, shaking our heads, feeling rather bruised, but as we have all stood still during lockdown, it definitely made us appreciate the simple things in life that we all take for granted – friends, family and the freedom to live life without restraints.

Many people definitely found a new love for their hairdresser, with most enduring four months with no cut or colour. Who’d have thought it?

Thankfully hairdressers up and down the country have worked their magic and have now restored everyone back to their former glory.

The festive period is the time when we all want to look our best and this year shouldn’t be any different. We may not be able to celebrate in the ’normal’ way with parties and work dos, but we can all still celebrate in style in our own way and part of that is looking our best (heaven knows we all need a little bit of happiness)!

The beautiful Nina is definitely ‘party ready’ rocking sparkly Christmas vibes and looking absolutely stunning. With waves for days and a little bit of hair flipping to your favourite party tunes, you can create your own magic and make New Year celebrations just as special with your family and loved ones.

Talking of happiness, our wonderful team at Hooker & Young are celebrating an incredible seven nominations at this year’s British Hairdressing Awards. It’s testament to how hard our team has worked this year; pulling together to ensure we continue working at our very best in bringing all you wonderful people amazing hair.

Flying the flag for the North East has always been a huge honour for us and something we take great pride in. MASSIVE congratulations to all of the H&Y finalists:

• North Eastern Hairdresser Of The Year Finalists – Jonathan Turner (Jesmond salon), Sophie Gibson (Gosforth salon) and Michelle Rooney (Wynyard salon)

• British Newcomer Of The Year – Molly Drummond (Ponteland salon)

• Artistic Team Of The Year

• British Colourist Of The Year

• And of course Gary Hooker & Michael Young for British Hairdresser Of The Year

It’s amazing to have so much to celebrate and be thankful for and we couldn’t be more proud of our incredible team. If you haven’t already booked your December/January Christmas hair appointment, then what are you waiting for? There’s nothing quite like a new do to make you feel fantastic.

So let’s see this year out with a bang, feeling our very best and looking forward to a happy and healthy 2021.
