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 […]

Too many old products? Help is on its way!

I blame Marie Kondo. After watching half an episode of her show on Netflix I got very excited by the idea of de-cluttering my home and ‘sparking joy’ with my belongings.

Is it time to say goodbye to your long hair?

My favourite line from a movie comes from the 1994 version of ‘Little Women’ when Jo sells her hair to buy a train ticket for her mother. Her young sister Amy (who may be a tiny bit vain and a touch bratty) is horrified and exclaims ‘ Jo how could you, your one beauty!’ When […]

Up until this point, only those women considered ‘fast’ succumbed to this terrible deed of colouring their hair! Screen sirens […]

Minimal effort Maximum Impact

It might come as a surprise but I’m not keen on doing my hair. Like many of you, the thought of standing around in the bathroom trying to get volume in dripping wet hair whilst slowly losing feeling in your arms fills me with dread. As someone who does hair for living there is an […]

Are salon products really worth it?

Before I was a hairdresser I had only ever used products from the supermarket. My boss was horrified when she found out a few months into my apprenticeship that I was still using my favourite brand from woolies! I can honestly say that changing to salon quality products was the best decision I’ve made for […]

Grey Hair? Don’t care!

Grey Hair. The end of the world for some, the hailing in of the new era for others and certainly the reason so many salons are still in business! When my first grey hair was somewhat tactlessly pointed out to me by a former colleague I was absolutely horrified, certain that 29 was definitely too […]
