Number two in our countdown of 10 gorgeous date night looks is this beautiful updo, that's all about giving classic glamour a modern twist. HOW chic is this look? Bring on the backcombing and pins because we LOVE making big, beautiful shapes!
#TBT to a retro glam look created by Ken for the Fellowship for British Hairdressing's President's Night in 2011 – how gorgeous is this colour with the vintage styling? We're in love!
We are SO excited to see you all again soon and are so touched by the responses to our reopening update 🤞 Thank you all for getting in contact Please note that we are not in a position to take any bookings until we receive more guidance from the government on a definite date for reopening.

Tied up with a bow, this gorgeous updo is one of our faves and makes it to number seven in our countdown of ten gorgeous date night looks! This is from a previous shoot but we love working with our clients to create beautiful updos for special occasions (remember them?!).
Finally… some good news! 🤞 The Welsh government has announced today that we will remain in lockdown for the next three weeks, with a review on 12th March. If, at this point, the figures are looking more promising, we will provisionally be able to reopen on Monday 15th March 🥳 We are delighted to have a provisional date, and will be keeping everything crossed that we are on track for a safe reopening 🤞 As we work towards this date, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our online booking as we await guidance from the government on any further restrictions that may be necessary to keep people safe. We will provide an update as soon as our booking system and phone lines are open and available. APPOINTMENT UPDATES 👉 If you had a booking for 15th March onwards, this will remain in place providing we are able to reopen as planned. 👉 If you had an appointment during the lockdown period, you will be automatically added to our priority waiting list and contacted in due course. 👉 If you did not have an appointment booked, and would like to be added to the waiting list, please email email@example.com with your desired service and the member of the team you’d like to see, as well as your preferred dates. We will work through these in order, and be in touch as soon as we can. We’d like to thank you once again for your ongoing support and patience, and can’t wait to get our hands on your hair VERY SOON! 🤞
Just in case you didn't get any flowers this Valentine's... here's a little look at some of our beautiful blooms to brighten your day 🌹
We hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday ❤️ The big day might be over, but we're still counting down our top 10 romantic looks, perfect for any date night – because why should all the romance be restricted to one evening...? We're in LOVE with these juicy red curls, in the perfect blushing rouge shade!
Here's your last warning - it's Valentine's Day TOMORROW! If you've forgotten 🙈 or you're struggling to get out with lockdown, you can still order a digital voucher from the salon – easy! Head to the link to order one quickly and easily now. Don't worry, we won't tell anyone... https://kenpicton.com/mobile/vouchers
We couldn't talk hair we LOVE without sharing this head of curls! There's something so romantic about big, touchable curls – use a diffuser to define and enhance your natural texture and create a fuller shape.
Anyone else missing that backwash magic moment? We can't wait for more R&R very soon!
Another super-glam retro look in our top 10 date night looks – these curls have more than a hint of Marilyn! The key to this finish is all in the prep and set, for a good old-fashioned head of curls that are guaranteed to turn heads. Do blondes have more fun? This look might just suggest they do...
Next up in our lineup of #datenight hair looks, it's this classic Hollywood wave. Oozing old-school glamour, this style works on most hair lengths and adds a hint of va-va-voom vintage style to your Valentine's look.
This February, we're counting down ten of our top date-night looks – because even if Valentine's Day looks a bit different this year, we still reckon it's a great excuse for good hair 💘 We're starting our gorgeous countdown with this short and sweet crop – styling short hair with high-shine products adds instant glam, while the side parting adds a soft, sweeping finish.

Well, it’s not the news we were hoping for… but as you will have no doubt heard, we’re staying in lockdown for another three weeks – which means the salon will remain closed. While we’re incredibly disappointed, as ever it is paramount that we all do what we can to combat the spread of the pandemic. The health and wellbeing of our entire team, and our clients, will always be our priority. We miss you all very much and can’t wait to be back in the salon soon making you all look and feel fabulous. We will be back as soon as it’s safe to do so, and will continue to keep you updated as and when we receive updates. Thank you, as always, for your support and loyalty – it means the world to us. Stay safe, Lots of love, Ken and Team KP x #cardifflockdown #welshlockdown #cardiff #salonclosure #cardiffsalon
