Claire Pears Freelance Hairdresser

Claire offers a professional hairdressing service in your own home. All equipment is provided and only professional products are used.

I am a City & Guilds qualified hairdresser and cover the York area and its surrounding villages. My usual hours are between 10.00am-4.00pm weekdays but I can always bend the rules where possible! I bring all my own equipment and I only use professional products. I believe that having your hair done in your own home enables you to have the full attention of the hairdresser which brings great results and builds a good relationship between the hairdresser and the client. I am a member of the Freelance Hairdressers Association (FHA) which enables me to keep up to date with the latest trends and products and attend training courses. It means that I am in touch with other qualified hairdressers and we offer support to each other should any of us need advice. So although I am freelance I am not cut off from the ever changing hairdressing world and it feels good to be part of the hairdressing family.

2 Beautiful blondes. - 1 silver, 1 rose. Achieved using #Wellacolors and a little bit of knowledge πŸ˜‰

Cheeky little plaits for this young lady after having had 2 inches cut off, to keep her long hair in tip top shape!

'Don't try this at home' - unless it's done by a professional hairdresser!
This is a colour correction I did this morning after the client lightened her hair herself. Her result was yellow with leopard spots.
This is where my training comes in! Chemistry, Biology, product knowledge and techniques get the right result without compromising the condition of the hair.

Very dense hair sometimes 'sits' better because of a secret - underneath! πŸ˜‰ #hairdresserssecret

When you're a hairdresser sometimes even bank holidays are a working day for friends! ☺

A half head of highlights redone after a long overdue period. The product is applied to new hair growth only, taking care to leave the previously lightened ends out to avoid damage. As the foiling process takes time to achieve, I
work with a milder formula on sections where colour will be on the hair longer. The formula strength is increased on the last sections to be weaved and foiled for acceleration of development process with this particular product.

Beautiful strong hair from italian genes is restyled into it's timeless bob. Some long layers are created and lots of slicing technique used to take some weight out of the hair and add texture. A pleasure to work with!

On a journey to go lighter, I did a full head of foil highlights using a very gentle formula to keep the hair at peak strength. This was followed by toning the hair using Wella 'glossing service' to deliver results with optimum shine.

Really pleased with my new cut! ☺☺☺

Another worthwhile training day at Wella Studio's, Manchester. Product knowledge is imperitive to offer the best options to clients and to know the science behind it all. The morning comprised of education for the new Wella Koleston Perfect Me+ colours, the previous colour formula has changed with some chemicals removed which lowers your chance of an allergic reaction by 60%! (Skin test still required). The new Pure balance technology adds more shine and is cumulative, so the more you use it the more benefits it has! Also Wella have brought out a new range called Opal Essence, a fabulous array of Metallic colours. We learnt about the technology of these colours, how they have been formulated taking in to account the affect of atmospheric influences on the hair. During the afternoon we had live models to test out the products. It was fantastic to meet up with the other freelancers from my region yet again but also members I'd never met before from various parts of the country #unitedwestand

And .....I Bet you didn't know that over 60% of the hairdressing workforce in the Uk are now freelance!! Becoming more popular than ever and apparently also in America!

A blend of toned highlights & dark blonde ash lowlights, give utterly natural looking colour to this one length bob.

This chic little style is revived after 6 weeks with a root touch up and overall toner. Wella professional products have been used to help create this look.

TIGI Colour technique training day with Jean-Paul (originally from Tony & Guy) completed! Jean -Paul travels all over the world to educate in salons and more recently freelance hairdressers. Apparently freelancers are taking the market by stormπŸ‘.
We learnt different ways to create an ombre result and were shown a variety of sectioning patterns to use, according to the look we wish to achieve. Great day! We are always learning!

Looking forward to this one next Monday!

Hairdressing is about 'Real People'.... this lovely lady told me today that I had made her day. 😊😊😊

Proud to be part of it!

You may work on your own but you don’t have to be alone. You have the FHA, your professional trade body to support you and guide you through the ups and downs of running your own business.

I just love cutting this bob every time!
Such a classic! βœ”

Funky short crop .
Very thick hair was layered leaving a soft outline then lots of weight was removed from inside which also gives different hair lengths within the style, adding texture.
A super easy style to manage - finger dried and wax to finish! πŸ‘

A great catch up yesterday in Leeds (lots of hair talk of course!) with just a few of my fellow hairdressers from the Freelance Hairdressers' Association.
Fabulous support group

'Short' is 'Cool' βœ” πŸ‘
Hair was clippered using a 1.5mm grade then graduated/blended in to the top section leaving a much longer length towards the front.

Previously highlighted hair covered with a blanket of Wella Illumina, using a colour melt technique. As a result the hair looks glossy and healthier.

I have just a few spaces left for appointments before Christmas. If you haven't already booked in and would like to do so, please contact me asap on 07957566094 or through my page.

Here we see a growing out home colour transformed.
I broke up the obvious 'line' with lots of babylights. Afterwards, a Wella Illumina toner was applied all over to counteract previous warmth and add a fresh new tone . A good one length cut with shaping around the face created this gorgeous style!

I do peoples hair of all ages from the very young to the older client. This particular lady likes a more 'set' look which I achieve by blow drying using a firm hold product, followed by tonging tightly. I then finish off by combing out using the method for a traditional shampoo & set.

Just wanted to pop this on my fb page as just found it from 10 years ago.......

This client has naturally quite dark hair. Over a period of time we have gradually added more fine highlights (for a more natural looking blend) and toned afterwards to achieve this seamless light blonde.

Something a little different. Red and blonde combined is an eyecatching contrast!.....

Soft curls for a night out.........

Grown out style and colour brought back to life with a modern cut, regrowth application and toner. #wella

A subtle pink from the Wella Colour Touch range, applied over already lightened hair makes this short crop eyecatching!

Highlights I did today on naturally curly hair make it look so pretty 😘

Bob's never go out of fashion and one of my favourite cuts - and also the most precise!

Blue highlights with a twist!
Natural medium brown hair with grown out colour was densly highlighted and then covered with blue to create blue lights. An underneath section of bright pink lights are hidden underneath to add an element of surprise, especially when the hair is tied up!

A few drinks and some hair talk with some of my fellow freelancers in Leeds last weekend!
