Now salons have reopened, many of us are taking full advantage of getting our hair completely refreshed and showing off the results to our friends on social media.

When posting a snap to Instagram you’ll probably add a filter to enhance the image but what if you didn’t have to? With the new Filtered Finish service from London-based Brooks and Brooks salon you can get the look of an Instagram filter applied to your hair in real life.

  • This clever new non-surgical treatment promises 'facelift effects' for less money and downtime

  • Air drying could be damaging your hair – here’s what you should be doing instead

Just as a top up service this treatment costs £60, and as an add-on to your colour service it’s £65 (including your blow-dry). Think of it like a lip gloss but for the hair, as it adds a gloss-boosting and subtle glaze.

“It’s a great add-on service for your colour,” says Grace Dalgleish, Brooks and Brooks educational director.

Every hair colour and type can benefit from the service, even if your hair isn’t professionally coloured. “It works on everything from virgin hair that’s lacking shine and dimension to coloured hair that’s feeling faded and brassy,” says Grace.

After having the treatment, colour appears refreshed and insta-ready – and the glossy effects will last a lengthy 4-6 weeks.

If you aren’t local to London but want to try a similar service to this, a great option is Kérastase’s K-Water Treatment, from £10 at RUSH salons nationwide, which is also a booster and adds a mirror-like shine to hair. Though, it only lasts one or two washes.
