Damaged hair

Damaged hair ....what to do ?


This picture client had a bad chemical straightening done elsewhere. Solution, go darker and blend the broken layers using PCC
This would require several more visits about a month apart. Pics shown are one appt


It depends. We receive a lot of enquiries about fixing someones damaged hair. But first we need to clarify what is being referred to as “damaged”

Read on for more info re types and for solutions follow the link below

Three main types we hear
1. Bad condition due to lack of care and styling without protection
2. Split ends
3. Chemical damage from other hair services


This before and after was a journey to go from left to right. But with PCC all the way. Over a year later hair is back and lots of colour changes along the way
We have every step of this journey over last 18 months on file to view


No 1. is the most common. Using hot tools and hairdryers with no thermal protection. Thinking a $1.99 generic shampoo will do the trick.

No 2. Comes in next. Now you do not see this with people that regularly maintain their hair, and yes cut it. The longer a hair strand goes without cutting the more fragile the hairs fibres ends become. Then they split.
So avoiding that 6 weekly cut to add 6 inches does not actually work. By the time you get that 6 inches you need 8 cut off... splits travel.

No 3. The hair fibre has been pushed too far. The process has caused the disulfide bonds to seperate. Completely and its too far gone. Partially and there is hope.


This before and after same day and damage just because was not looked after in between visits. Here we did full head foils with PCC . Check out the result and condition

But all is NOT lost.
YOUR remedies

Depending in your hair condition and budget we have options. .... for more detailed information on our solutions just follow the link below

Firstly NOTHING will fix split ends. They have to be cut off and if not. You’ll never get rid of them.
But we do have solutions via services like Olaplex + LaBiosthetique PCC which can minimise splits by maintaining a healthier stronger hair strand.

These services will help with the other types of damage though. How long to fix and what ? All depends on what needs fixing.


Pictures show on left a bad perm, not by us. Our solution done at one appointment was a colour with PCC. The colour evens out the hair tones while PCC protects and repairs


Some things to remember.
These fixes are in salon services. NO Olaplex No 3 is not what we use in salon (refer to link for more info)

Most of the above problems can be avoided by using the right products in the first place when styling or colouring your hair. .... utilising services like Olaplex and PCC to enhance the hair is a great preventive to damaged hair

Re services at different price points.
Let us use this example.
Few years back a lady came to us with waist length hair she and a friend bleached at home. It was now a nice yellow tone (even though)
There was breakage all through the hair and some strands were like rubber bands.
She wanted us to now get it to white blonde. But we would ONLY cut the splits off and do a PCC repair service.
We know this would of stopped the breakage in its tracks. But the question was asked re PCC price and they did not want to pay that.
She left.
We know that within a week all that hair would of snapped off from the waist to the shoulder. BUT we also know we could of stopped that.


Picture shown is just bad condition hair. We literally just used a PCC and blow dry



Hair repair

Jason Outten - Monday, January 27, 2020
Hair repair
Olaplex 1+2 Professional and No 3
LaBiosthetique PCC ... Professional


BUT .. what does that all mean


Before and after performed in one appointment. Breakage stopped


Well for the long answer you can check out our blog link below

But lets keep it simple here

Your hair becomes, dry, frizzy (damage induced frizz) and breaks when your disulfide bonds weaken or break. How does that happen ? Again go to blog link for more info re types of damage.

So how does Olaplex come into help ?

Olaplex 1 is either mixed into your colour to work while colour processing. Or can be applied on your hair seperataly if not having a colour. It starts to cause your disulfide bonds to strengthen. Olaplex no 2 is then applied to help lock in that repair process and condition the strands.
You then shampoo and condition afterwards.
Olaplex no 3 ? That is what you take home to help maintain the repair work No 1 + 2 did in the salon. Again it is PRE SHAMPOO + CONDITION


Some things to remember. Olaplex physically repairs hair. When you comment with a “no thanks i have at home” re an offer for Olaplex in salon. NO you don’t. Olaplex 3 is not what we use in salon. For starters ours is a clear brown liquid. No 3 is a white cream.
It is pre shampoo and NO there is nothing that fixes split ends.

La Biosthetique PCC
Now this little wonder ampule is amazing. It starts of doing a similar thing that Olaplex does re disulfide bond repair and is mixed and applied similar way. But it comes in glass ampules. Again it can be in colour or stand alone service.
BUT it causes another process that wraps a protective layer around the repair work so no take home required and up to 5x stronger.


So why both ?
They are different price points.
But where you could have Olaplex every week PCC is not recommended within a month of the last. Its too strong and would be a waste so soon.
On top of all this. Timing and personal choice. The more damage the stronger remedy. Plus some clients have a preference to the feel of the results at varying times of the year or hairs condition.

The pictures.
Most are the before and after using PCC during service. The pink hair has been a journey and this client will never have colour without.
We used PCC in these cases as the extreme. Check them out by following the link below

But remember regardless of hair condition. Utilising these services and products will cause the following

Less colour fade
Greater natural shine
Less breakage
Reduced split ends forming
Overall hair health and vitality

Short hair




The problem we find people have with THEIR short hair is getting it cut for them. A stylist may know a bob or a lob
or a pixie etc..... But they are looks created from a foundation of techniques.

Now take those techniques and adapt them to YOUR haircut. More techniques, more experience with creative ability
and and eye for style...... and magic happens

A personalised haircut for YOU... YOUR haircut

Permanent HydroRebond Hair

Permanent HydroRebond Hair Straightening.... activated by water

Before After




You can now get the most technically advanced technology in hair straightening applied by the most experienced + best hair straightening salon in the country
Straightening like you’ve never seen before. Results you’ll never get anywhere else

Permanent Straightening is no simple quick process. Every week we see people that have had straightening elsewhere.
Not straight, frizzy and unfortunately usually unfixable. But cheap ..... Too many people focused on price and then getting what they paid for

If YOU are looking for the BEST results and value YOUR hair. Then we’re YOUR only choice

If you are looking for a cheap deal and price is your focus ? We’re probably not your cup of tea, and we’re fine with that. We put too much time and focus in delivering results not to get paid for our work.

This before and after was actually a training session. Still perfect

Please note:
This service can only be booked in person on first visit and we always take a 50% deposit. For pricing follow the link and scroll down. Sorry we do not quote or consult on social media.

Wait times for permanent straightening bookings can commonly be

Weekdays 2 weeks
Late night Wednesday 8 weeks
Saturdays 4 weeks
Keratin smoothing’s available a lot sooner

Training model sessions are currently available over next few months at 1/2 price on available Tuesdays. Nothing until February at present and will finish around May or June

Keratin Smoothing

Jason Outten - Sunday, January 19, 2020
To answer a common question re our Keratin Smoothing..... and too show our clients don’t have
to worry about the high humidity today

>The picture on the LEFT is shampooed and naturally dried

>The picture on the RIGHT is also shampooed and naturally dried.

>SAME person. SAME hair



The difference?

The picture on right is after our Keratin smoothing service

Frizz, Curl, Volume .... GONE

So this is what we mean when we say reduces volume, frizz and curl by up to 80% and lasts up to 5 months. With some
(as we have here. Getting even better)

Remember this is not even styled. Which will take minute now

Don’t waste your money on cheap keratin services that are just wasting your money. Focus on the results and longevity like we do

Why do hundreds of clients

Jason Outten - Sunday, January 19, 2020
Why do hundreds of clients spend over $450 with us for their Keratin Smoothing.... when salons are quoting $200-$300 ?



For YOU to experience why you could just book a $200 one then next time have one with us. Once you have had us you won’t go back and spend $200

BUT we are here to help stop you wasting that $200-$300 in the first place

Just because two places are quoting something called the same thing does NOT mean you’re going to get the same thing. If that was the case we would not be the biggest hair smoothing salon in Australia, and the majority of our clients having this service would not be coming back to us for years

Technique. That's your answer. The simple explanation is that keratin smoothing in the hairdressing industry is one of the most poorly executed techniques. Some salons don’t mean too. Some have no idea and others are too $ focused.

We’re about results. We have perfected our technique over 15+ years. Yes we use good products (our product cost more per client application than some salons whole service) But we know a salon could use the same product and NOT get the same result.



Yes its dried into the hair, yes its ironed into the hair. But EXACTLY how, at what pace, at what temp, at what tension, at what angle. That's our trade secret. That’s what delivers our results and why we have clients which say they’d never waste their time or money on cheap $200-$300 keratin services again. The results don’t compare.

So if you have had results last 3-6 weeks like a few of our newer clients said they got elsewhere. If your hair is frizzy again in a month after your $199 Keratin deal. We can save you money over time while delivering better results

Blondes

Jason Outten - Sunday, January 12, 2020
Blondes



With all the hoo ha and all the “techniques” flooding salons it’s understanding why clients sometimes think they need to book
a “technique” rather than explain what they actually want to achieve

The reality is a lot of techniques not used by some stylists are simply not used because they are harder to master and
technical application has to be Perfect. They just cannot do them

So many techniques these days are causing clients to go through longer processes. Costing more.
When a more experienced stylist could achieve desired result via a shorter path

One thing to note. Experience does not necessarily refer to years hairdressing but more exposure to techniques and ability.
Years can give that but only if mind wide open and absorbing along the way





We have seen younger stylists create amazing work while older still grasping at techniques and vice verse

THIS result is created literally via foils with a base colour at roots using Olaplex. In one application.
Foils go on, root colour goes on and timer set. That’s it

Never taken colour through ends
Never had or needed a toner
Never have to go back over and reapply
6 weekly visits
3-3.5 hours including haircut + finish
Zero lines
Not a single bleed

Its simple. Its clean and the client is getting what THEY want. Not what a stylist wanted to try at their last workshop

Sorry but going to say it...too many educators creating techniques to stay relevant when
most results can be achieved quicker with shorter processes that already in play...

YOUR visit is about YOU and our job is to aim at achieving YOUR desired results (as long as you’re realistic )
in the most efficient way and time frame.

Look we’re not claiming to be “blonde experts” or “specialist” ..... we’re just good at it

Heres our top 9

Jason Outten - Thursday, January 02, 2020
Here's our top 9 that we made a top 12 (why not) for 2019 ....



Every colour, every style, every length. Real people, real clients ..... real appointments. We specialise in Hair.

One style does not fit every person in the real world so we’re here to create YOURS.

We don't specialise in just one style, we're not that limiting. We don't do "just long" or "just blonde"
When as a hairdresser did we just do one type of hair. We do hair, simple

Real people in real time frames at real appointments. How hard would it be asking for your hair to be like the last post you put up
and it was a 10 hour job with an insta model that was happy to sit there all day because she's not paying and she has
50,000 followers the salon thinks she will "influence" to use their salon.
Would you be happy paying for 10 hours ?

We specialise in HAIR..Thats what we do

Permanent Hair Straightening

Permanent Hair Straightening
TECHNICAL ABILITY



The single thing most people looking at getting their hair straightened MISS...
too focused on price to think about their results...

All permanent straightening’s
ARE NOT THE SAME

Example shown. Very thick hair so we had to work in zones. Technician has 10 years experience
but impossible to apply as precise as our standards dictate before process time is up in first zone

So we split the zones and do in rolling stages. This ensures whole head processes evenly.
Note: this pic is just showing the very first stage. Not even half way.

Most salons would try and rush or use multiple stylists/apprentices to apply.
That’s when mistakes happen and results are compromised

We allow enough time to perform to the best possible standards. Then price accordingly.
Fitting a service like this to a budget is never going to end well
