Student Living: The Freshers Hair Survival Kit

Student Living: The Freshers Hair Survival Kit

Are you heading off to Uni and want to look and feel your best for freshers? Then we've got the must-have hair products you'll need to keep your hair looking FRESH in our ultimate Freshers Hair Survival Guide.

First things first though, if you're actually physically moving out to live nearer to campus, you'll first need to figure out how much space you’ll have. There’s no point packing your whole beauty stash if you’ve not got the storage space. So, the key to packing for university is ‘essentials-only’ which is why we’ve included the only hair products you’ll need to get you through.

Dry Shampoo

All of the nights out, 9am lectures and study sessions will throw your hair wash routine out of sync.The EIMI's Volume Dry Me absorbs any excess oil giving you the feeling and appearance of healthy, clean hair. Not only is this a dry shampoo but it’s also a volume styling spray - we LOVE a 2-in-1! No excess oil and hair with body and bounce? Yes please! You’ll be ready to run out of the door in no time.

Shampoo & Conditioner Duos 

Relying on Mum and Dad to pick you up your trusty shampoo and conditioner is a thing of the past now as you're a campus goer. Just make sure you're buying the right type for your hair. Here at Supercuts HQ, we swear by the TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Re-Energize Tween Duo as it works wonders to inject shine, re-hydrate and nourish strands from root to tip. Hair will look glossy and feel revitalised too. They’re also available in other ranges: Colour Goddess, Recovery, Re-Energise, Resurrection and Dumb Blonde - so there really is a range for everyone.

Hairspray

Running from lectures straight to a student union get together is most likely going to be a common occurrence, so you’re going to want to lock your hairstyle in place, all day long. Our stylists recommend TIGI Bed Head Maxxed Out Massive Hold Hairspray as it secures any style with a long-lasting hold. Whether you’re creating a super sleek look or a big, bouncy blow dry - always finish it with this signature hairspray, and it’ll last you all day and night.

Hair Mask

The Elements Renewing Mask from Wella Professionals is a multi-tasking wonder product that is literally the perfect treatment for those with dry, frizzy and colour treated hair. It’s a deeply moisturising treatment, that helps to add softness and shine while helping to detangle and improve manageability of hair. It’s also packed with UV protector qualities to help shield your strands from sun damage, so it’s a win, win!

And there you have it! Our top essentials for Freshers, courtesy of your expert stylists. Don't forget, pop in to see un in salon with your Student ID and we'll give you 10% off hair services! Wednesday's are extra special however, as we give you 15% off instead!
