Karen Koster & Hermans Top 5 Tips for Christmas Hair Care

  • Tue, 26 Nov 2019

The Christmas party season means we love to look and feel our best, and thanks to Karen Koster & Hermans you can!

First established by Herman Koster in 1971, the salon celebrated their 5 millionth customer earlier this Autumn! Today, Hermans is owned and managed by the founder’s children, Greg, Zoe and Karen who have continued their father’s business and legacy. Karen Koster, TV personality and presenter, shares with us her Top 5 Hair Care Tips for the festive season.

Tip 1:
Kerastase K-Water will have your hair looking lustrous for the party season
Ask for the K-Water Treatment when you pop into Hermans this winter – it adds that glossy shine everyone craves.

Tip 2:
For the guys in your life head to Knights of the Green
Men are hard to buy for! Knights of the Green in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and Dundrum have a fantastic selection of top quality traditional shaving brushes, razors and gorgeous shaving creams and balms. From €10 stocking fillers to luxury shaving sets, Knights has something for the well-groomed man in your life. And if you’re really stuck, they’ve got vouchers as well.

Tip 3:
Split up with your split ends!
I always aim to pop into Hermans for a trim every 6 weeks. I used to put it off as I was mad to let my hair grow but split ends were just traveling up my hair, the condition suffered and it looked drier. So now, I like to have blunt healthy ends to my hair!

Tip 4:
Use Natulique Organic Colour
I often get asked if I wear hair extensions, and I don’t need to thanks to Naturalique colour. There’s no way I could have thick blonde hair if it wasn’t for this organic colour. I’m able to be a bright blonde without compromising the condition of my hair. I switched about 5 years ago when I was first pregnant, and despite having 3 kids in that time, my hair has stayed thick throughout all pregnancies and post-partum periods.

Tip 5:
Opt for Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner
If you spend on your skincare, it’s worth remembering to spend on your haircare too. You can hide problem skin with makeup, but hair is a different story. I love using the Olaplex system to keep my hair hydrated and conditioned. The products feel and smell luxurious and it feels like my hair has had a trip to the hair spa after I use these products.
