SERVICES

COLOUR

Part line

A part line consists of 3-5 foils placed along either side of the part.

1/4 head

A quarter head of foils is generally placed along your hairline and down your part line. Perfect for someone who wants a subtle shape around their face or to create lightness when they tie their hair back.

1/2 head

A half head of foils is placed around the crown area and both side panels. This service is one of the most commonly asked for services, perfect if you want a variation in colour whilst maintaining some of your natural hair growth.

3/4 head

A three-quarter head of foils is commonly applied in two ways. Either scattered foils throughout that back section of your head leading into heavier foiling in the crown and side panel areas, or the foils are placed on a diagonal section along the neck to ear hairline leading into the middle of the head, foils are then placed on the crown area and both side panels.

Full head of foils

A full head of foils creates an even amount of colour throughout the whole head.

Regrowth

Regrowth can either be applied with a semi/demi/permanent colour (tint) to the roots of the hair. Note, this is a block colour, not foils.

All over colour

An all-over colour, also known as a colour balance, is either the same or a variation of colours placed from roots to ends.

Ombre

A basic Ombre, also known as Balayage, is a transition of colour from roots to ends. The most commonly seen Ombre is darker roots blending into lightness on the ends. This service and price vary depending on what Ombre look you are after.

Toner

A toner is used to either counteract unwanted tones, e.g. removing the orange/yellow tones for a blonde or depositing a new temporary colour to the hair. Toners and prices vary depending on what you are after. Moreover, it is a quick and simple way to freshen up an existing colour without causing damage. 

CUT

Haircut and blow wave

This service includes a hair wash with a relaxing massage, a haircut, along with a blow-wave/hot tool style of your choice.

Male haircut

A male haircut along with a hair wash with a relaxing massage, dry and style into your desired look.

 *Adolescent females receive a wash, haircut and a basic style.

STYLING

Blow wave

This service includes a hair wash with a relaxing massage and a style of the hair using different techniques with either brushes or hot tools, e.g. straighteners, hot rollers, a wand, curling irons etc.

Hair ups

Hair ups are also known as an ‘up do’ or formal/wedding hair. This service is genuinely created on pre-washed hair as the natural oils help maintain a longer-lasting hairstyle of your choice. A hair wash and relaxing massage may occur depending on the chosen style.

GHD curls

This service is created on pre-washed and dried hair, creating a style using hot tools. Note product is not frequently used. 

WELLAPLEX

A WellaPlex treatment is a treatment designed to multiply and rebond bonds within the hair shaft, ultimately rebuilding it. When this was first released, it was nicknamed the ‘game changer’ as it allows hairdressers to push limits with colour as WellaPlex acts as our safety net.

A WellaPlex treatment consists of a Number 1, Number 2 and Number 3. Both Number 1 and 2 are in-salon treatments, with Number 3 being the ‘take home’ treatment.

This treatment can be used on any client; this is not specific to colour work. However, we highly recommend it to clients that receive bleaching services.

Tips Before Going to the Hair Salon

When it finally comes to getting a new hairstyle or changing your hair colour, many people often have a specific look or style in mind. Haircuts and hair colour, which are actually pretty temporary in nature, could have a powerful effect on you. It could turn a bad hair day into one of the best hair days you’ve ever seen; at the same time, it could bring you lots of empowerment and self-confidence too. However, if your haircut or hair colour does go wrong, then it could make you really upset.

Know your face shape and hair texture

Every face shape has different hairstyles that suit them. Once you know if you have an oval, circle, square, or heart-shaped face, you can figure out what suits you best—the best way to figure out your face shape by looking at your jawline. 

It is also helpful to know your hair texture as it plays a significant part in the hair look you want to achieve. Whether you have thin, fine hair or thick, curly hair, you can’t expect to achieve the opposite from a hair cut. If you have thick, curly hair, do not expect your stylist to recreate Jennifer Aniston’s glossy fine locks. Instead, have more realistic expectations and find hair inspiration from people who have the same hair texture as you do. 

Consider your lifestyle

This is a very important thing to take into consideration. Your hairstyle is another thing that represents who you are and what you do. If you live a very busy life and know you won’t have time to do your hair, then consider a look that’s low maintenance (aka, don’t get bangs). Consider a look that you can make you look good from just a hair wash and rinse. 

Go for a consultation

If you are still uncertain about what hair look will work for you, schedule a consultation with your hairstylist. When you’re having your consultation, your stylist will be looking at your hair when it’s dry. Therefore, be sure to wash your hair, so there’s not a lot of product in your hair and that it’s detangled. However, if you’re getting your colour done, stylists recommend coming in with your hair unwashed as it will help protect your scalp from the chemical products you’re putting in your hair. 

When you go to your appointment, bring some photos of the style you want to get. Make sure to bring photos from different angles of the style. That way, the stylist can determine if the cut or colour would work for your hair texture and face shape. Also, ask about the hairstyle’s care and upkeep to know if it would fit with your lifestyle. This is also the time to ask about the hair lingos if you don’t know what they are. For example styles like balayage, ombre, sombre, and babylights. Be sure to understand these terms before asking for the style. You don’t want to be disappointed with your finished look because you didn’t actually know what you were asking for in the beginning. 

Make sure you’re actually ready for a new hairstyle

If you’re going to the salon just for a trim or touch up, it’s not a huge commitment. However, if you’re chopping off 12 inches of your hair for the first time, there’s no going back. Make sure to think about your new hair change before you make a spontaneous decision. If you’re not sure, ask your loved ones about the hair change for a second opinion. 

Be truthful

When your hairstylist asks about your hair history, be truthful about what you have used and use regularly. For example, if you have used a boxed hair dye or have chemically straightened your hair. This will determine how strong of a dye product your hairstylist will be using for your colour. If you lie and say your hair is virgin hair, there’s a possibility of very unwanted results happening.  

Getting a new hairstyle doesn’t have to be a game of risk when you provide your hairstylist with various information to explain the look you want to achieve. Clear communication is imperative to a successful hair salon visit. This will make you and your hairstylist feel confident in the hair process. So for your next hair appointment, make sure to consider these basic tips before entering the salon. We’re sure that from here on out, you’ll never have a bad haircut or colour!
