Daniel Galvin Salon
Discussing Summer 2021's hottest salon trends with world renowned Daniel Galvin Jr, from the most popular cut and colours to salon equipment.
Q1. It’s been a tough year for our industry. Have 12 months of home dyes and lockdown cuts affected clients’ appreciation of your work?
Massively, they understand that our craft is like no other and that our intense, especially curated techniques are not ones that you can mirror yourself at home. Their appreciation towards us as colour technicians has maximized and turned them into more than ever loyal clients to our salon!
Q2. How does the Procare range help with your day-to-day life at Daniel Galvin Jr?
The Procare foil range is next to none, it allows us precision in our highlighting and balayage techniques, it’s strength, flexibility and quality gives us the trust that our clients will be walking out with 5* results.
Q3. What are the main cut and colour trends that clients are looking for in Summer 2021?
After the last 3 lockdowns, I believe it has made our clients desire lower maintainable hair which looks just as fabulous 3 months down the line as it does the day, they leave our salon. At Daniel Galvin Jr, we believe that introducing face contouring, sunkissed and natural enhancement will be a timeless look which will be here to stay. Undone, loose and beachy hair styles that don’t outgrow their shape will be chased after, this will massively compliment their hair colour, lifestyle and complexion.
Q4. As salons reopen, hygiene is the buzzword on everyone’s lips. How are you going the distance to ensure safety for your staff and clients alike?
We have all safety measures put in place, such as all the correct PPE, masks, visors, hand sanitisers at all stations, we have a temperature gauge for every person who enters the salon followed by an effective track and trace system. We have an external cleaning company who deep clean the salon and all the air conditioning units. In addition to this, between every section and backwash we have dividers to maximize our social distancing rules. We also like to ensure our clients and staff are running on time with appointments to make sure we do not exceed the maximum amount of people in our premises.
Q5. With our industry’s ever-important focus on sustainability, how does the ProCare 24*7 help Daniel Galvin London work towards minimising salon waste?
The Procare 24*7 is an extremely efficient tool saving huge amounts of time allowing my staff and my assistants to focus on maintaining and sustaining a clean healthy and safe salon in the most sustainable and effective way during our busy working week at the same time delivering Unparalleled levels of service to our customers.
There is always continuity and consistency is the cut of the foil and no wastage whatsoever we are truly delighted with this dynamic.
