5 Netflix Hairstyles we NEED to Recreate

We’re firm believers in the power of hair. Our hair allows us to start new chapters, be creative, and express ourselves. At Sixth Sense Salon we find inspiration EVERYWHERE. 

These days we’re all spending more time streaming Netflix than anything else. So why not take inspiration from these familiar faces? Below we’ve rounded up our top 5 hair inspos from Netflix at the moment…

Queens Gambit (Beth Harmon)

       

Even global supermodel Gigi Hadid has ditched her signature blonde locks for a fiery recharge thanks to Queen’s Gambit’s chess champion (and strong willed red head) Beth Harmon, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. 

Vogue wrote an entire article about the planning and detail in the shows wardrobe choices, and the attention to Beth’s hair is no different. This final look is towards the end of the show, we don’t want to give away any spoilers, but in a strong scene for this character; this hairstyle shows elegance, yet strength. 

The soft copper shade and shoulder length is also great for welcoming the spring. 

Bridgerton (Marina Thompson)

If you haven’t seen Bridgerton yet, do you even HAVE Netflix? 

Marina Thompson’s voluminous up-do in this scene is more modern than a lot of the styles on the show and looks more like a 90s high ponytail. Whether you’re blessed with these curls or not, voluminous ponytails are something we’re keeping our eye on this spring.

Schitt’s Creek (Moira Rose)

Although the character had some questionable wigs in the hit series “Schitt’s  Creek”, Catherine O’Hara was incredible in this show; and at 67 Moira Rose is proof that amazing hair can be pulled of at ANY age. 

Good Girls – Annie Marks

Annie Marks’ hair has a few changes throughout the series Good Girls (yes, we’ve binged). From long blonde curls in the beginning, to a platinum bob later on in the series. We love that Annie has hair the everyday woman can achieve, and this drastic change showed us major character development; she looked AMAZING. 

Michelle Visage – Ru Paul’s Drag Race

Who says money pieces are only for teens? Michelle visage pulls off this silver streak and we’re obsessed. If you’ve seen Ru Paul’s Drag Race, chances are you’ve been as glued to Michelle’s hair this season as we have!

BYE BYE BASIC… What’s Your Next Colour?

With all these sporadic announcements and constant uncertainty it can be hard for us to prepare for returning to normal life. However, with Sixth Sense Salon’s unwavering optimism we don’t see the harm in planning your next glam sesh!

In case you missed our post earlier this month, we’re obsessed with the Pantone colours of the year this month, Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. The Pantone colours of the year have a huge impact on the fashion in many industries, so we’re keeping our eye out for trending silvers and pops of colour, here’s our best advice whilst you have *plenty* of time to assess whether you should take a walk on the wild side… and if you already have CONGRATS, we have some maintenance advice for you too. 🥳

 

  CONNA’S ADVICE FOR SILKY SILVER LOCKS

What’s your #1 advice for those thinking of taking the icey plunge? 

“Achieving silver hair will be a journey and can be a long one depending where your hair is at the moment, I would say be patient, trust your stylist and invest in the hairs integrity. Silver hair is a huge commitment in regards  to up keep, but with the right products regime and advice will give you the right tools to look after and love your new silver hair.”

What products would you recommend for silver hair?

“I would definitely advise silver shampoo to help keep colour tone and also wellaplex no3 as a bond builder to help keep the hairs strength but with that also comes adding moisture to the hair, especially when lightened, you can add moisture using leave in products such as System Professional’s luxe oil or weekly treatments with the Nioxin density mask.”

Any styling advice?

“Try and keep heat to a minimum, too much heat on the hair can cause the colour to fade quicker but applying a heat protector when using hot tools such as Cloud 9 magic potion would be a great defence.”

What’s the biggest mistake people make when it comes to going silver?

“The biggest mistake I have seen with silver hair is being sure the colour your aiming for will suit, this covers everything from skin tone to eye colour, we all love silver hair but it doesn’t love us all back 🤣😜”

GEORGE’S ADVICE FOR THE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

Q: What would you advise to anyone considering shaking things up a bit?

“I’d have to say don’t be scared by colour! Coloured hair can be as vibrant or as muted down as you want, so if you’re a bit hesitant you can always start with a more toned down colour.”

Q: Do you have any styling tips?

“Aftercare for coloured hair is very similar to silver hair maintenance as Conna mentioned, use cooler water for washing hair and use less heat and heat protection when styling.”

Q: How do I maintain coloured hair?

“When colouring hair I always consider that at least some colour fade will eventually occur, some of my clients like the faded out looks (like how a bright pink can fade to a soft baby pink) however you can maintain any desired vibrancy with toner sessions in between colouring, using a colour save shampoo and conditioner, or even treating yourself to a wella colour fresh mask*”
