Did you know that in the UK the 2nd biggest hair concern amongst clients is their hair being
damaged? We all know that when you are having your hair done, be it coloured, blow dried or styled, hair can get damaged or even broken.

First of all you need to know what Smartbond actually does.

By using Smartbond, created by L’Oreal Professional, this damage caused to your hair during technical services can be reduced. This new bonding solution is working wonders on clients hair.

Smartbond is an additive that you mix into the colour or bleach before adding it to the hair. It is used to strengthen the hair and protect it during and after the colour service, leaving you with stronger, healthier looking hair.

The way it works is simple…….we apply 2 of the products in the salon during the process and you use the conditioner at home as an aftercare. The first product we apply in the salon is the additive which will preserve the strong bonds and allow the weak ones to reconstruct.

The second product is applied when the colour or bleach has been removed, before the shampoo goes on. This conditions the hair leaving it shiny and smooth. Your hair is then styled as required.

Step three is in your hands and this is the home conditioner. Continue with the conditioner at home to keep the salon finished look and feel week after week.

Smartbond is suitable for all hair types. You don’t have to have your hair coloured to use it, you can use it on your normal hair to give it a boost and some extra shine and healthiness! We now include this in any of our hair colouring services.








Read below a review from one very happy client.


I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to colouring my hair.  I love it but my hair doesn’t….all too often when colour or a toner is added it fades or washes out within a few washes.  Believe me when I say I have pretty much tried every colour going…………..Silver grey, lilac, pink toners, forget about it, brunettes look flat and faded after a couple of washes, until…………Smartbond.

Having recently gone from bleach blonde to brunette, I was expecting the initial colouring to fade and look flat but whilst there was a little fading, nothing compared to previous times and my hair felt thicker and shinier, something that has never happened before.  

I have had a couple of appointments since and actually think for the first time in ages my hair is growing and stronger.

All in all for me Smartbond has been a game changer……..can’t wait to see how it copes when the urge to change takes me again.

Let’s have a One to One!

Hi from the One to One team. We thought it’d be a good idea to sit down and tell you a bit more about the salon and what we can do for you.


Obviously, we cut and colour hair! Lisa, Joanne and Trish are trained in the latest unisex styles, so can provide whatever you want and most importantly a personal hair styling experience. We’ve begun to lose count of the times we’ve been asked to recreate Alexa Chung’s style or Claudia Winkleman’s fringe… and as for colour! Well, there’s nothing we can’t do these days, whether you want to permanently brighten your hair to match your personality, or fancy using colourful, possibly even outrageous chalks to really make heads turn.

We’ve always said that with us, you get top salon treatment for ordinary prices. But we know that everyone loves a special offer, which is why we’ve usually got at least one on the go, whether it’s for money off styling or products, a little extra pampering such as “a glass of white wine for the lady” or a beer for the gents, or even a prize draw for a free cut’n’blow dry. Whatever the offer, we’ll always post it on Facebook and Twitter, so make sure you follow us and be the first to take advantage.  And don’t forget when you are in our salon why don’t you ‘check in’ on Facebook or tweet from here so your friends can join you too!

Here comes the bride… Having your hair look good every day is really important, but having stunning hair on your wedding day is absolutely vital. Luckily, we love creating wedding hair and are especially good at vintage, romantic styles. We’ll help make getting ready on your big day relaxing and with added Wow Factor – our job is to help you make your dreams come true!

But you don’t have to wait to get married to let your hair down, er, by putting it up! Out-glam your friends on Prom night or any other special occasion, whether it’s an awards night for work, a May Ball, a glamorous cocktail party, or even ‘just because’ – after all, why should you need a reason to look gorgeous?!

Talking of going out, remember that we’re open til 7pm every Friday night so you’ve got time to get your hair done after work and before the weekend officially begins.

With the sometimes hectic combination of work and play, we understand how busy life can get and you’re not always going to get the chance to call us when we’re open. No problem! Download the One to One app (search for ‘One to One Hair Studio’) so you can check availability and make an appointment from your phone. And if you need to see us in the next few days, click on the Late Availability tab which is on every page of our website – you’ll see when we’re free and have the chance to snap up that timeslot before anyone else does.

Feel free to have a look round our website. We’ve got all our prices listed so you know what to expect. And if you’ve got any questions, get in touch or pop into our Welwyn Garden City salon to say hello.
