Whether you’re headed to party it up in Ibiza or a chill out in the city of Barcelona, everyone loves a summer holiday. Getting away from the English rain and soaking up those long-awaited sun rays is what keeps us going through the rest of the year!   But everyone also likes to be looking their best on holiday, which is why we have no doubt you’ll be getting your Spectrum One hair extensions put in before you go. Because, as we all know, long hair, a bikini and a tan is the ultimate summer babe look. 

When our founder Katy Grimshaw first dreamt of opening her own salon, we don’t think even she could’ve imagined the success it would have. Yet, here we are! Spectrum One is a now an established hair salon in Haslingden gaining nationwide recognition (of course, we’re talking about our It List Awards nomination) and continuing to flourish and thrive beyond our wildest dreams!   Our Spectrum One hair extensions, too, have been noticed by those with a keen interest in all things hair. In fact, they’ve actually been spotted on some famous celebrity faces that you may be interested to hear about… 

Hair extensions can be a girls’ salvation. Got an awful chop that’s totally uneven? Hair extensions will help hide it. Gone for shoulder-length and realised you’re totally not about it? Hair extensions to the rescue. There’s no denying that they’re an incredible invention that we really couldn’t live without!   But, as with everything, there are downfalls. Well, not downfalls, but just things to be aware of. That main ‘thing’ is keeping your extensions looking natural. You want people to be totally seduced by that luscious length, not laughing at a bunch of badly hidden clips. 

When it comes to hard work, no one does it better than Spectrum One’s very own Katy Grimshaw! As the founder, owner and all-round hair-genius, she is an invaluable asset to our team of stylists. We don’t know what we’d do without her! Well, Spectrum One wouldn’t exist for starters. Can you imagine that? We can’t.   So, we’ve all been over the moon since her recent nomination for The It List awards! The It List, presented by Creative Head - a top industry publication - is one of the most coveted award ceremonies for young hairdressers in the UK. It’s the Bafta’s of hair, basically, and our Katy's only gone and been nominated for an award! 

If you know anything about Spectrum One hair extensions, you’ll know we don’t skimp on quality; in fact, it’s our number one priority. For far too many years we’ve seen girls walking around with terrible extensions that are so obvious it hurts, and we just couldn’t stand it any longer! We had to make an affordable, quality alternative.   We knew before we even had the name for our extensions that we would never, ever, use synthetic hair. With years of experience and knowledge, we could see that going fake wasn’t the solution to the ‘bad extensions’ problem sweeping the nation. We were going to have to keep things 100% real.   But why are we so into human hair extensions? Well, let us give you the low-down.
