When it comes to achieving your perfect hairstyle, knowing what to ask for at the hairdressers can ensure you leave the salon looking and feeling your best. At Joshua Tree Salon in West Bridgford, we specialise in high quality hair dressing services from balayage to hair extensions to hair colour and aftercare. In this blog, we will explore our most requested services to help you take your hair salon experience to the next level.



If you’re looking for a natural, sun-kissed look, balayage is the perfect choice. This freehand, colouring technique allows for a blend of highlights with your base colour.

When you visit us, you can ask for soft, natural highlights that will blend and create a subtle, yet striking effect. For a more defined look, request face-framing colour, which involves lighter strands around your face to enhance your features and brighten your complexion. Discuss your lifestyle and maintenance preferences with your stylist, as balayage can be customised to require less frequent touch-ups. This makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a low-maintenance and versatile look.

Hair Extensions:

Hair extensions can transform your look by adding volume and length. Here at Joshua Tree Salon, our hair extension experts offer advice on various methods of application. When considering hair extensions always take advantage of the free consultation we offer to talk through your ideas with your stylist, have images of your desired length and thickness and don’t forget to ask about how best to maintain your extensions.

It’s important to discuss the type of extensions that will work best for your hair type and lifestyle. Ensure the extensions match your natural hair colour or any new colour you plan to get, as a faultless blend is crucial for a natural look. Hair extensions are perfect for special occasions or for those who desire a more glamorous, every day, appearance. With proper care, they can be a fantastic addition to your hair care routine, offering versatility and a boost to your confidence.

Hair Colour:

Changing your hair colour can dramatically alter your look and our expert team at Joshua Tree Salon are here to help you achieve the perfect shade. During your consultation, ask your stylist “what colour shade will best compliment my skin tone?” Take along images of the shades you like and explore the suggestions your stylist will make. It’s important to ask, “how often will my colour need touch ups?” The level of maintenance required for your chosen colour will depend on a number of factors, some shades need more frequent touch-ups than others. This question is particularly important if you have a busy schedule and prefer a low-maintenance option.

Professional hair colour offers numerous benefits, including the ability to create a bespoke colour that brings out your best features. From vibrant bold hues to stunning natural tones, our team have the expertise to deliver gorgeous results that will leave you feeling confident and refreshed.

Hair Treatments:

Maintaining healthy hair requires regular treatments and at Joshua Tree Salon, we offer a range of options to address various hair concerns. During your visit, ask us “are there treatments for my hair’s health?” we can assess your hair’s condition and recommend the best, professional treatment for your specific needs.

Whether you require hydration, repair, or scalp health, we have specific treatments to address these issues. For instance, hydration treatments can restore moisture to dry, brittle hair, while repair treatments can strengthen damaged strands. Scalp treatments focus on improving scalp health, which is crucial for promoting hair growth and preventing common issues such as dandruff.

Regular hair treatments are essential for maintaining the results of other services like colouring and extensions, ensuring your hair remains healthy, shiny and manageable.

Making the Most of Your Hairdresser Visit:

Finally, a successful salon visit hinges on clear communication between you and your stylist. By asking the right questions and being upfront about past experiences, your stylist will be able to understand your needs better. Don’t hesitate to ask questions about the process, products used and aftercare tips. Being open with your stylist’s suggestions can also enhance your final look, as they have the expertise to recommend the best options for your hair type and lifestyle.

At Joshua Tree Salon, we love to make every visit a delightful experience. Whichever one of our excellent services you’re coming in for, we want you to leave a happy client, feeling satisfied and confident.
