What type of salon are we

Jason Outten - Sunday, May 24, 2020
What type of salon are we ?


To some that maybe a strange question. To others its obvious

What do we mean ?
Well we love hair. We love seeing amazing results. But we also love being able to help you maintain those results and have
the time to achieve those results.



But we can only do so much. We can make the time, and we can achieve the results. If you make the time, plan and have
realistic goals

We’re not the best salon for the person that wakes up wanting a complete colour change that day. (Unless you want black)
We’re not the salon for that person that changes their mind last minute and leaves us with hours booked out and nothing to do



But if you’re the person that wants to be looked after. Have your Hair journey planned, your maintenance taken care of,
and know that no matter what you’re wearing its not looking great unless your hair is. Then you know we’re that salon




What brings most people to us is word of mouth and those amazing images all over Google + our Social Media.
They’re also our clients. Real people with real results. We don’t use influencers, and we don’t have a back up
of models to make our social media look pretty. That’s not us. Our social media is about what we achieve every day in our salon with real people. Real time frames, realistic expectations and booked appointments




So if you’ve been flip flopping around salons and now need us to fix your hair today. Or you just get too busy to sort out your
appointments and cancel or change on your hairdresser last minute all the time. Don’t call us, we’re not that type of salon

Keratin Smoothing. What do we mean

Jason Outten - Sunday, April 05, 2020
Keratin Smoothing. What do we mean by "up to 80% reduction in volume, frizz and curl" ? THIS!




See the before on left is the naturally dried before our smoothing service and the right is naturally dry after our smoothing service.

Not all keratin smoothing is the same. Its like any service. A haircut, A hair colour. Some places do them better than others.
We just do ours extremely well and have the reviews and feed back to support it.

If you think keratin does not work on your hair, or does not work. You just had the wrong person doing it.

We currently have a new Keratin client intro available valid with Louise. It is $352 including the shampoo + conditioner to take home.
That's saving most people over $200. Normal booking conditions apply. Contact salon for further information.

The ColorWOW Dream Regime

Jason Outten - Sunday, March 15, 2020
The ColorWOW Dream Regime
The range that will crystal clean your hair. Repair up to 50% of your hair damage while adding volume (only if needed) and moisture.
Leaving soft, de frizzed and shiny while lasting up to three shampoos .....WOW






DREAM FILTER

Metals and minerals found in tap water build up on the hair, leaving behind a film that dulls, darkens and stains colour.
Some products also build up on the hair affecting colour and hair condition.

Dream filters break through technology works like a magnet to remove these minerals in under 3 minutes. Effective on all hair and colour types.
Especially lighter colour and high lights which are more susceptible to discolouration.


COLOUR SECURITY SHAMPOO

Most shampoos are loaded with unnecessary additives that are nothing to do with cleansing and do not easily rinse off.
Colour security shampoo delivers the ultimate dream clean because it is uniquely formulated.

COLOUR SECURITY CONDITIONER



A lot of conditioners can make the hair look dark, distorted or brassy. They can weigh the hair down and look greasy.
Colour Security conditioners are formulated with 6 translucent conditioning agents that will not oxidize, corrupt colour and turn brassy.

Available for fine, normal to thick hair



DREAM COCKTAILS
Three different formulations for three different concerns. That can all be used on the same head of hair. Flat roots, dry mids and damaged ends. No problem just zone apply.
Don't have that many concerns, easy just use what you need where you need


Carb Infused for volume



Dream Cocktail for moisture

ColorWow DreamCoat

ColorWow DreamCoat


Virgin Hair with Dream Regime service, finished with DreamCoat by ColorWow


How to get Ultimate Results.
Dreamcoat is an amazing product but you need to use it correctly or you won’t achieve the results or even notice a difference.

First. What does it do ?
It seals the hair reducing the frizz and is humidity resistant. Plus it lasts three shampoos if done correctly.
It will not effect your colour either. You’ll experience increased shine, softness, better manageability and reduced frizz for up to three shampoos.

How to use correctly ?
You apply to damp hair (NOT Wet)
It is the last product you put in your hair before drying. Yes you can use with other products.
You HAVE TO blow dry it in with tension for it to work. Ironing afterwards ads to the effect but will NOT do without the correctly drying it in.

Now here is THE KEY element.
This was instructed and explained by ColorWow educators. It WILL NOT work correctly unless you use a “wooden bristle brush”
Why ?
Because regardless of what people say and think YOU CANNOT get the tension and smoothness a wooden bristle can achieve with a ceramic brush.


Real Brushes available in salon. This is style brush required. YOU WILL NOT GET CORRECT RESULTS WITH A METAL OR NON BRISTLE BRUSH


As all our stylists are trained and already use this type of brush we’re achieving amazing results

You are wasting your time and money if you just blast dry or leave to dry naturally.
But remember you only have to blow dry in correctly every 4th shampoo.

Curly hair ? No problem we stock Curly ColorWow too.

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

Permanent HydroRebond Hair

Jason Outten - Sunday, January 19, 2020
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

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

Jason Outten - Thursday, January 02, 2020
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
