Tiff J


Upon meeting Tiff J, salon owner and Creative Director of 3thirty hair & beauty salon, you’re immediately struck by her quiet, enigmatic nature. For someone who at the tender age of 26 has just launched their own hair and beauty salon, her humble demeanour is one to be admired. Tiff’s passion for hair materialised at the age of 12 w...



Sue asks:
I have very long (almost down to my hips when straight) hair and it is naturally extremely frizzy despite the fact I condition it constantly. I have found the only way to control my hair is to put it into two French plates when wet and take them out once dry then hairspray the hell out of this which works great!... for about two hours if I am lucky! When I had shoulder length hair when I was younger it was completely untameable! Is there anything I can try to keep my hair from frizzing? I have tried basically every serum, conditioner, leave in conditioner etc that you can buy!

Depending on the thickness of your hair or if you like to leave it natural looking, a good crème would be if you haven’t tried it already is Mazani moisture stretch curl crème, this product contains shea butter which moisturises and tames hair as well as working as a anti humiditant agent. When using your conditioning treatments always towel dry your hair before applying the conditioner as the water can dilute the conditioner and stop it from working, best to leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. I also highly recommend you get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks even if it’s the smallest amount, this keeps hair tamed and frizz controlled as dead ends tend to frizz easier working its way up to the healthy hair.

Fuchsia asks:
I have long thick curly hair that I want to put in a vintage style. I’ve tried pin curls and velcro rollers but whenever it gets to the part where I have to brush the curls it just turns into a massive frizz ball. I’m going for a Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall look. Can you help?

First of all do not brush the curls out, especially with a bristle brush as all this will do is drag all your hard efforts into a frizzy mess! 40’s styled waved curls appear hard to recreate due to its precision but with practice, you’ll be able to recreate the vintage wave in no time! The secret to capturing the era of the glam 40’s is to make sure the hair is curled in the same direction. We’re looking for a softly structured wave pattern, not loose curls. You can use heated rollers or tongs but you can also part the hair in medium sections, mist all over with holding spray then begin rolling the ends of the hair inwards until you’ve reached the base of the head so you’ve formed a nice smooth roll. Set in place with bobby pins then repeat all over. Repeat all over and wait for the hair to set. After a few minutes, gently remove the pins and mould the hair with fingers to form a wave pattern then sparingly mist all over again with holding spray.
