Perming has become a specialist service in recent times. Many salons across the UK have shifted
their focus towards colouring techniques like highlights and balayage, causing perming to lose
popularity. As a result, some hairdressers may have limited experience or training in this chemical
process. At Combers-Inside Out Hairdressing, we pride ourselves on being perming experts, with
years of dedicated experience and a deep understanding of the technique. It's crucial to choose a
salon that specialises in perming to ensure you get the results you desire. Choose an expert and

Yes, thorough drying of your hair extensions is crucial. It's recommended to avoid letting your hair extensions air dry. Always use a blow dryer on a low heat setting to ensure they are completely dry. When using styling tools like straighteners or curling irons, apply a heat protectant to prevent damage.

Failure to follow styling guidelines may compromise the integrity of your hair extensions. Using high heat without protection or allowing extensions to air dry can lead to tangling, matting, and potential damage, voiding any warranty provided by the supplier.

Yes, it's important to note that if you choose to colour your hair extensions on your own, it may invalidate any warranty. Colouring should be done by our professional stylists during a salon appointment to ensure proper application and maintain the integrity of the extensions.

Colouring your hair extensions outside the salon may pose risks, potentially voiding any warranty. It's crucial to have a detailed discussion with your extension technician about your desired colour and to follow their recommendations to maintain the warranty and overall health of your extensions.

While we offer professional colouring services, it's important to discuss this with your extension technician. Colouring extensions after installation may carry risks, and your technician will provide guidance on whether it's advisable based on the specific type of extensions you have.

To ensure the best results, all hair extension appointments begin with a free consultation. You can only book your consultation by contacting us our front of house team on 01823 334331.

The tape method is preferred for its ability to provide a secure hold while being gentle on your natural hair. It minimises stress and ensures a comfortable experience throughout the wearing period.

With proper care, tape-in hair extensions can last up to 8 weeks. However, maintenance appointments are recommended for optimal results and to address any adjustments needed.

Absolutely! Our high-quality human hair extensions can be treated just like your natural hair. You can wash, blow-dry, and style them to achieve the look you desire.

Balayage is known for its low-maintenance appeal. To keep your balayage looking fresh, use sulfate-free shampoos, avoid excessive heat styling, and protect your hair from the sun. Regular trims can also help maintain the overall health and appearance of your balayage.

While there are DIY balayage kits available, achieving the desired results is challenging without professional expertise. Consult one of our skilled colourists at Combers who can tailor the technique to your hair type and preferences.

Balayage is most commonly associated with lighter tones such as blonde balayag.  However, it can be adapted for various hair colours, including brunettes, redheads and fashion shades.

Balayage and ombré are both hair coloring techniques, but they differ in their application. Balayage involves adding colour onto the hair for a softer, more natural look, while ombré features a more noticeable, graduated colour shift from dark to light, often with a distinct line between the two shades.

Prices start from £175 for a bespoke balayage.  Book a consultation by either completing this form or calling Combers in Taunton 01823 334 331. Our consultations are second to none because we will really listen to you, ask the right questions, and understand exactly what it is you want from your hair before recommending a plan to achieve your goals.

Balayage is a hair colouring technique that originated in France. It involves hand-painting or sweeping color onto sections of hair to create a natural, graduated effect. The word "balayage" itself means "sweeping" in French.

Unlike traditional foil highlighting, balayage creates a softer, more natural look with a seamless transition between dark and light tones. It allows for a sun-kissed, lived-in appearance, as the colour is often applied freehand without the use of foils.

Balayage is versatile and can be adapted to various hair types and lengths. It works best on mid-length and long hair, and it can be customised to complement different textures and styles.

One of the advantages of balayage is that it grows out more gracefully than traditional highlights, so touch-ups are less frequent. Many people find they can go several months between appointments, depending on their desired look and how fast their hair grows.

Yes, balayage can be applied to both natural and previously coloured hair. It is a versatile technique that can enhance existing colour or create a new, multi-dimensional look.

With proper care and maintenance, a well-fitted hair replacement system can last up to a year, depending on your lifestyle and endurance to our after care advice.

Regular check-ins and in salon treatment are recommended, typically every 4 weeks, to ensure the system stays in optimal condition. Your own hair around the sides will require a re-cut at the same time to ensure the blend remains perfect.

This will depend on whether we agree on glue or tapes to secure your system. With the former we recommend having it professionally removed to ensure it's done safely and without damage. However, many like the freedom of tapes which are very secure and we can show you how to remove and re-tape and we even give you the tapes.

It's important to clean your hair system regularly to keep it looking its best. Use a gentle, sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for human hair systems. Gently wash and rinse, avoiding harsh rubbing or wringing.

Opt for lightweight, water-based styling products. Avoid products containing alcohol, as they can cause damage to the hair. Gel, mousse, and light-hold pomades work well and can be applied sparingly for styling.

Use a wide-toothed comb or a soft-bristle brush to detangle and style your hair system. Start from the ends and work your way up, being gentle to prevent any unnecessary tension or pulling.

While it's possible to use heat styling tools like flat irons or curling irons on low heat settings, it's recommended to avoid excessive heat to prolong the lifespan of your hair system. Always use a heat protectant spray before styling.

Yes, avoid products containing harsh chemicals, sulphates, or alcohol. These can cause damage to the hair and the adhesive used to secure the system.

Combers-Inside Out Hairdressing, we stay up-to-date with the latest trends in hair design.
However, we also understand the importance of tailoring these trends to fit your lifestyle. Our
stylists can adapt any trend to suit your preferences and daily routine.

Perceptive design at Combers-Inside Out Hairdressing delves into the intricate relationship
between hair, colour, and face shape. It involves recognising how these elements, when
strategically placed or altered, can enhance or minimise specific features. For instance, the length
of hair can even impact the perceived height or width of shoulders. Our skilled stylists understand
that getting these design lines right is crucial, as it directly influences the perception of your overall
look. Just as choosing to wear a black outfit can create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette,
perceptive design harnesses these principles to craft a hairstyle that complements your unique

Certainly! You can find us at The Courtyard, St James Street, Taunton Somerset. We're excited to
welcome you to our salon for an exceptional hair experience that's rooted in the art and science of

perceptive design. This allows us to create personalised styles that complement individual hair
textures, ensuring a tailored look that suits you.

At Combers-Inside Out Hairdressing, we believe in providing our clients with the tools they need to
maintain their style at home. Our stylists can recommend the best products for your specific hair
type and style, ensuring you can recreate that salon-fresh look every day.

Absolutely. Messages we receive during our formative years can leave a lasting impression. If
you were repeatedly told that your natural hair isn't beautiful, it can be hard to break free from that
mindset. Conversely, you may have had long hair that everyone repeatably expressed as beautiful
rather than how beautiful you were. A well intentioned compliment avoiding possible misconstrued
intimacy and embarrassment, no doubt, but of course you can see how easily a young mind could
conflate the expression of beauty with long hair with their personal beauty and self identity which
impacts on future decisions and mental trauma around a hairdresser suggesting you have a
shorter hair style …. A fresh, personalised style can help rewrite that narrative.

A well-crafted hairstyle that aligns with your personality can be a powerful confidence booster.
When you feel good about how you look, it radiates in your demeanour and interactions with

At Combers, we believe in creating looks that are as unique as our clients. We take the time to

transformative experiences tailored to each individual.

You can find us at The Courtyard, St James Street, Taunton Somerset. We look forward to
welcoming you to our salon for a personalised transformation that's all about you!

Changing your hairstyle or colour can be a powerful form of self-expression and a boost to your
confidence. It can help you align your outer appearance with your inner self, leading to a positive
impact on your overall well-being.

Going short can be liberating and empowering. It's a statement of self-assuredness and often
requires a level of confidence that can be incredibly rewarding. Plus, it can save you time and
make your morning routine a breeze!

Embracing a new hair colour can symbolise a willingness to step out of your comfort zone and
embrace change. It's a bold move that shows you're not afraid to take risks and try new things.

Yes, it's very common. Many of us tend to stick to what's familiar, even if it doesn't truly reflect
our personality or style. Sometimes, it takes a little nudge and professional guidance to break free
from the routine and discover a whole new look.

It's important to remember that what matters most is how you feel about your own appearance.
While it's natural to consider the opinions of loved ones, ultimately, the choice should be yours.
Trusting your own instincts can lead to a transformation that truly resonates with you.

A consultation helps us assess your hair type, condition, and specific needs. This ensures we
select the right treatment and customise it to achieve the best results for you.

We recommend waiting at least two weeks after colouring your hair before getting a Keratin
Smoothing Treatment. Applying the treatment on freshly coloured hair can potentially cause colour
fading, as when it is infused into the hair it will displace the colour molecules. We recommend
having your colour after the keratin smoothing treatment.

Yes, especially if your colour is applied to hair which has had a keratin treatment as the better the
condition of your hair, the longer the colour molecules will stay in the hair and the more reflective

The treatment eliminates frizz, reduces styling time, and leaves the hair looking smoother and
shinier. It also helps to make the hair more resistant to humidity, making it an excellent choice for
those with unruly or frizzy hair.

The treatment typically takes around 2 to 3 hours, depending on the length and thickness of your
hair. The results can last up to 3 to 5 months with proper care and maintenance.

The process begins with a thorough shampoo and conditioning. The keratin solution is then applied
and left on for a specific duration. Afterward, the hair is blow-dried and flat-ironed to seal in the

use formaldehyde-free formulas to ensure safety and comfort for our clients. This change aligns
with European standards for hair treatments.

Shampoos are far milder than they once were so a daily wash can prevent the build up of gels and waxes that are often used on shorter hair. We recommend you buy your hair care products from Combers so we can recommend the right product for your needs.

Yes, men can use hair oil daily, especially if they have dry or frizzy hair. Hair oil can help nourish the hair, reduce frizz, and add shine. However, it's important to use a small amount to avoid making the hair look greasy and to choose a non-comedogenic oil that won't clog pores.

You can get rid of dandruff by using an anti-dandruff shampoo regularly, maintaining a healthy scalp, and staying hydrated. We have a selection of hair and scalp solutions that will also be kind to your hair. Visit your hairdresser so we can assess your scalp – because not all flaking scalp is dandruff. It's also important to manage stress, as it can trigger dandruff. If dandruff persists after a prescribed plan from your hair professional, consider consulting a dermatologist for a suitable treatment plan.

Yes and no. Conditioning is essential as it helps to hydrate the hair, making it softer, more manageable, and less prone to breakage and split ends.
