Thinking of changing things up a little this year? We talk to master colourist Stevie Corthine, owner of Stevie English Hair, about his hair predictions for 2014.

What styles will be trending in 2014?
I think we are going to see a return of the seventies – big, sexy and carefree. These hairstyles are easy to dress up for a night out or look casually laid back for everyday.

What colours will be trending in 2014?
I love all colours and at Stevie English Hair we want to make people look the best so we make sure to chose colours that suit them. On trend colours this year will be golds and oranges to keep with the pastel theme as of late the pastels becoming far softer and muted.

What cuts will be trending this year?
We’ll be seeing more of the long bob this year, or ‘lob’ as they’re more affectionately known.

5 minutes with Eugene Ong from Urbanhair.


How long have you been in the hairdressing industry and where did you start your career?
I’ve been working in the hairdressing industry since 1978 and trained at the Alan International School and Jingled Hairdressing School in London. After working at various salons in London I moved to Australia for a while before returning to Singapore in 1989.

Tell us about your salon.
Since 1989, Urbanhair has been positioned as a trendy, upmarket and lifestyle orientated unconventional salon that focuses on quality services using premium products for people who appreciate a quality lifestyle.

What’s the best thing about your job?
Being able to do what I love.

What is your favourite O&M product from the range?
Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray and Know Knott Conditioning Detangler because they give a matt finish and a tangle free result.

James Davis’s luxury Oxshott salon becomes O&M’s UK flagship salon.


Tell us about your salon.
I opened Clay Hair Salon, a multi award winning hair salon and specialist in luxury personal treatment, in December 2009. Clay is based in one of the UK’s most desirable locations and attracts a cosmopolitan clientele. Many of our clients actually visit from all over the UK, not just within our area which is a testament to our unrivalled quality. They say they couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.

How did you come across O&M?
Throughout my time in hairdressing I have used numerous product lines but have always found that each range had something missing or uses ingredients undesirable to consumers. We live in an era where people are incredibly conscientious about what chemicals they are using on their bodies and hair. For me, it was important to try and find a product brand which reflected the natural properties people demanded. I came across O&M and was instantly drawn to its low chemical qualities. A synergy in values between the product and our salon led me to make the decision that we needed it in Clay.

What’s your favourite O&M product from the range?
I love Frizzy Logic. It’s really light compared to other similar products on the market and doesn’t make your hair greasy. Clients love it.

What’s the best thing about your job?
For me it has always been making people feel good about themselves and knowing they’ll leave the salon and love what I have created for them. The second best thing is watching my team grow and develop as hairdressers – there is nothing more satisfying than watching an individual grow and develop their ability, watching them create the same happiness in other clients.
