Colour Me In

Close your eyes for a moment and picture this- a perfect prism appears in the atmosphere. A single ray of light hits it, splitting it into a stunning array of colours. Yellow, orange, red,green, violet and blue, spilling through the sky in an arc of pure magnificence. A very fancy way to say ‘rainbow’, which […]

Self Care in Self Isolation

  At this moment in time, it seems that all we are talking about is COVID-19. It has been a terribly challenging and overwhelming time for so many people, and it has been no different in salons. With so many views on what the “right” way to act in a salon is, it has understandably […]

Fashion vs Style

Fashion. Otherwise known as the comedy for future generations. Or the envy, depending on the era. I can look back at any era and find a look I love and then a look I equally loathe. Hindsight has a lovely rose coloured filter and we tend to forget some of the more horrific fashion “fails” […]

Love your Curls

I adore curly hair. Adore it. The sense of wild abandon that accompanies those spirals doing whatever they please atop a head appeals to the secret anarchist lurking deep in my soul. Unfortunately for me, I am the only one in my family that did not inherit curly hair. Terribly unfair, as I am the […]

On the Fringe; your guide to beautiful bangs.

I love my fringe. Without it, I feel somewhat like Count Dracula with the receding hairline and extreme widow’s peak, and I have to say, thats not really the vibe I’m going for! Like most girls born in the 80’s, my mother gave me a fringe as a child. Around the time I was 8 […]

The Mysteriously Beautiful Art Of Red

I have always been obsessed with red hair, lamenting my very dull dishwater blonde/brown hair. As a young woman I looked to my screen idols for inspiration. The beautiful Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Poison Ivy and my personal favourite femme fatale, Jessica Rabbit. Some may be cartoon characters but those flowing locks of vibrant […]

The Bob. An evolution and revolution.

The year was 1989. Five year old Sarah (that’s me by the way) begs her parents to cut her hair into a Bob. Where I got the idea to get said haircut I have no recollection but I vividly remember the thrill of nervous excitement I had walking up to the Stefan’s salon in downtown […]
