Hydro Rebond Straightening.. Smile says it all :)

This random question in comments indicates to us that people do not read and do not do their research. Which is a scary thought when looking at permanent straightening. Even smoothing. Its a lot of money to waste, not getting results or worse. Damaged hair.

Our permanent straightening is $797
Our keratin smoothing is OVER $400

Haircuts and products etc are in addition but we have packages to reduce those costs.

Rebond permanent straightening. More technical, more difficult. But thats what we are good at :)

To book a permanent straightening 1st time. It can only be done in person with 50% deposit. That does mean the deposit has to be paid in person at time of booking. So if you come in to chat but don’t book. You will need to come back again to book.

Keratin smoothing’s can be in person or over phone/email. Call or email us re how. 92288211

There are no exceptions to how we book. Its either thorough and professional or not at all. If you are looking for cheap. Sorry we’re not for you. But give us a call if something needs fixing. We’ll see what we can do

Colour Transformation

Jason Outten - Tuesday, December 17, 2019
Colour Transformations..... starting points and time frames. The real world

If you are one colour and want to be another, unless its to be darker. It will take time and $
If your current colour is not natural it will take more time and will cost more $’s
If your current colour is not natural and via a box next to where you get your cornflakes 
Its going to take waaaaay more time and waaaay more $’s IF its even possible

The best transformations are the ones where the client has a realistic understanding and expectation
of the process from where they are currently at.....and a stylist that explains it.

Imagine this
Black is 1 ....................... 10 is Very light blonde The bigger the distance you have to travel to go lighter
(towards 10 from lower number) the more time and cost.
BUT even that depends on hairs ability to handle the process.

Here we have one appointment going lighter from previous darker colour.
The plan here is not to go “blonde”, just lighter. Check it out

Want to maintain ? Less work at each appointment.
Want to go lighter ? More work, but we’re step closer.

Pink Balayage

Jason Outten - Tuesday, December 10, 2019
If this hair is not what you call READY for Christmas..... nothing is

Pink ColourSplash Balayage YES!!!

How would you achieve this ?
Consultation 1st

Why? Because you cannot just put any colour on and hey presto it’s done You need the right canvas first. Which this was not ....
...but 5+ hours later. No problem

It requires planning...... and before the “how much” ? Comments start. No idea ... really, we have NO idea...
But we can work out an idea at a consultation ......
We will know start point. We will have a rough guide/approach and work out some time frames. The professional approach.

But be prepared. Sometimes only your hair will dictate how long it will take and it becomes a journey

Want a quick how much and an in and out before lunch ? We’re probably not the salon for you .....
You’ll probably not get the result and/or your hair will be compromised .. Unless your Platinum blonde to start

Colour correction

Jason Outten - Monday, December 02, 2019
Colour correction

Stage 1. The trip to blonde

Whats going on ? Lets explain

In this before + after we have taken both pictures in the same natural light at front reception.

First the before picture
There is a lot of history in this hair. From blonde to brown to a few blonde attempts and some colour stripping. Hence the lighter from roots (as the most natural hair so will lighten easier) But darker colour will hold on longer through the mids & ends. As you can see here.

It will grab unevenly and patchy. All depending on what was put on both before and after. You can see all the different tones from just above ear height and below.
So the desired outcome request was not going to be possible and accepting a different tone of blonde was initial option. There was also going to be the situation where those darker unwanted tones are still not going to go away in one visit.

The plan
To start the process and work towards an end goal. Which is a lot lighter, cleaner and no requirement for toners.
This is why we only take appointments like this after a consultation in person. Realistic expectations explained and quoted as done here so clients fully aware before making a decision.

This after
We’re on our way but still a way to go. Another visit like this one and we can reassess at continuing later on with less work as appointments stop becoming colour corrections.
Eventually the darker tones will be gone, the orange undertones will disappear and we can focus on a cleaner lighter blonde. Foils without toning

But.... its a journey that most won’t stick too and look for quicker alternatives Unfortunately that commonly leads to compromised hair and results
Hair is a fibre it takes time to keep changing

Really want to change up your style ?

What about a PERM

Did you know they do not even teach this in college anymore Most salons have no one that can even perm.
We actually have other salons refer their clients to us for perms

A perm does not mean you’re collecting a pension and check your mailbox in rollers and a net ...
It is a technique designed to create curl + body that lasts.
It is something that would allow your curl or wave style to hold ALL night long.
It can also boost flat and fine hair into a whole new look

Everyone of our Senior Stylists perm and even our 1st year is learning how to.
So unless her classmates salons are teaching them. Louise will be the only one that knows how to.

Please note perms are only booked after a physical consultation.

A Perm can be any many forms, young, old, quirky. Perm is just a technique. Like a haircut or foiling.
