At our Cardiff salons we love to keep up with the latest trends, but we understand that you will be on a tight budget.  Book an appointment and we can help come up with a new look to match your personal fashion sense and student lifestyle.  For inspiration, take a look at these cool celebrity hairstyle ideas. 

The Best Hair Salon for Students Near Me








The Bay


Relaxed Beachy Waves

One of the most popular and practical hair trends for busy students is an easy beachy look.  This laid back style can be adapted to suit the time you have available to create it!  Achieving this beachy vibe is as easy as gently scrunching your hair and using the right product to add texture.

If your hair is naturally pretty straight, we recommend creating quite well-defined curls using a heated curler on days when you have time available to style.  After that, you can enjoy loose waves for the next couple of days.  Just add a spritz of dry shampoo.

Embrace Your Curls

If you’re lucky enough to have natural curls or coils, don’t fight them!  Speak to your Michelle Marshall stylist about the treatments and home care products to make the most of your curly locks.  For example, Redken Frizz Ease is designed to hydrate your curls, control frizz, and give your hair structure.  

Invest in a hair treatment at our Cardiff salons and it will not only make your curls look beautiful, but it will make your hair easier to manage throughout the busy student term. 

Low Maintenance Hair Colour

If you’re looking for  low maintenance hairstyle that will fit your student budget, don’t reach for the box dye! That will ruin your hair’s condition and cause more problems than it solves.  We recommend instead going for balayage.

This popular hair colour technique involves our colour technicians painting colour into your hair by hand.  We focus on the areas where the sun naturally adds highlights and can colour as much or as little of your hair as you’d like us to.  It’s a great way to add fashionable face frame highlights for example. The free-hand nature of the technique means that regrowth is far less obvious than with traditional highlights (or box dye!).  This means your hair colour keeps looking good with fewer visits to the salon are needed.

Blonde balayage is always popular, but we can paint in any colour you choose. Our range of colours includes soft pastels and vivid fashion shades –  if you really want to stand out from the crowd!

Cool Hairstyles Short Hairstyles

We offer hairstyles for everyone at Michelle Marshall.  If you want a sharp new short hairstyle, you could draw inspiration from model and footballer Romeo Beckham.  His love of  unusual hairstyles and colours is clearly inherited from his father!

Whatever your personal style and impression  you want to create this term, the expert hairdressers at Michelle Marshall Salons are here to help.
