Apples with Apples

How would you respond if we were to say a BMW is the same as a Hyundai ? There both cars ? Whats the difference ?

Everyone knows there is a lot of difference because the majority of people are educated with that knowledge.

But if we were to say a 1/2 head of foils is the same as a 1/2 head foils the majority of people are not educated with
that knowledge and would assume “yes”.... but its actually NO...

Recently at an interview for a new senior stylist an applicant made comment re not liking their current situation as only
has 30 minutes to put a 1/2 head of foils in. That's because that is that salons idea of a 1/2 head foils. NOT every salons idea.

Most people when ringing around salons for a service are not comparing apples with apples. They are just comparing prices.
Which is generally apples with oranges.

Technique, product, experience and service are NOT the same in every salon.

As a salon you either set a price and build your services around that OR set a service and standard and build your price around that.

Our clients come to us for results.

The picture below is just a simple comparison of a single foil placement. The results will be completely different. But both “foils”.

Just the one on the left will give a lot better result. 🤗

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Hero's

You can take your balayage, your big colour corrections, your staged insta model pics and do as you will.

But THIS is hairdressing. This is more rewarding than anything else in hair.

After battling Breast Cancer and fighting back. To finally see your hair grow back and get your first real colour and cut. It is such a milestone in the treatment process.

Its an absolute pleasure for Caroline to look after this amazing lady from way before diagnosis. To removing the hair as chemo started to shaping + styling the wigs. To today when the hair is back..... and we are ready for our 1st colour + haircut

As Caroline is a Breast Cancer surviving hairdresser THIS is hairdressing

Balayage.... Wanting to go lighter?
We're kinda happy with this one :)... and No there is no extensiosn used. Before + After ALL own hair

But lets talk Balayage > Lets get real

How long does it take ?
How longs the hair ?
How thicks the hair ?
Whats the last 5 year colour history ?
Have you had that “technique” done recently?
If you have are you needing the lighter tones lifted ? Because that requires breaking through the darker colour coming down.
Is your root colour natural or previously darker colour into light ?
Do you have colour on now ?
How many times have you had colour ?
What type of colour ?
What type of end result do you want as balayage is a technique ?

etc etc etc .....

How much does it cost ?
Refer to above questions...

Last week we did one that took 4 hours to do.
Today we did one that was 5 hours
This week we have another one that first session was 5 hours. Next session 5-6 hours and then we will assess where we are at then.
Some 2 hours.

It is not a one size fits all. It could only take an hour or two ? Actually when you see salons posting “Balayage $149”. Thats a little hand painted lightener brushed through to the ends. On virgin hair. A “balayage” technique most would not achieve THEIR results with.
Try getting that with dark brown hair and wanting a creamy baby light blonde flowing from your part.

Most Balayage results these days require corrective colour work during or prior the service. Either because of dark hair or worse dark colour. Most balayage applications are a progressive approach towards a goal that could take time.

If you would like a Balayage appointment with us we’d love to see you.....BUT only once we have had a physical pre consultation prior. Once that is done we are more than happy to look at booking a suitable time frame.  YOU will know what to expect both in results and cost, and we will have the right amount of time and technician to deliver that for YOU

The RED HAIR Journey

The above from top left was a little under 18 month journey

A little while ago we wrote a post about last minute calls for amazing hair that takes time.
About how people call same day for what requires a 4-5 hr or longer time frame.

The initial start (not caused by us) Another salons attempt
at taking platinum blonde

Calling for amazing hair that took planning and that much time,
but then wanting to be rushed or squeezed in. We don’t rush and
we do not squeeze. We either have the correct time or we don’t.

Initially to Brunette then finally to BLACK once got used to darker

We are aware there is a growing trend for some salons to just take every possible
booking and then try and work it out later. Generally they are heavily geared with
apprentices doing the work and senior stylists stretched between 3-4 clients at the same time.

We’re a little more professional than that and respect our clients time and investment.
So we invest back.

Then the first RED experience

Here we have a journey one of our clients went through, and is still on.
We’re waiting for the next episode.

But it did not initially start with us. The first blonde picture was another salon taking Bianca blonde.
Platinum blonde  .... or so they thought. They just lightened and lightened until the hair snapped off.

Every angle looks amazing.

So in we stepped. Very limited in what we could do but we had to start somewhere.
But check out where we are now in less than 18 months.

Initially we went brown. If you have a lot of damage darker is a good place to start.
... We focused on conditioning and have used La Biosthetique PCC at every stage
(5 x Stronger than any other Plex)

Later we decided blacks better and kept it there until the condition and length had
come back a bit. Then red .... deep to start as going too light requires more
work and we needed to keep an eye on integrity. Now after last appointment.
We could push brighter.

This weeks finale

This is what happens when you plan and trust your stylist and their advice.
Its not a last minute squeeze in appointment. You won’t wake up one morning,
pick the phone up and get these results.

We achieved the BRIGHTER RED

You can’t see this and think “i’ll get that today” Trust the process and maybe not
same day but soon ....ENJOY :)
