Permanent Straightening

Jason Outten - Monday, August 19, 2019
Permanent Hyrdo Rebonded Straightening. Straightening hair with the power of water.
Think of your hair when it’s soaking wet ... its limp, flat, smooth, shiny and an increase
slip feel while maximising the moisture level.
Now imagine if we can pull the water into your hair shaft and give you a similar feeling
when its dry and make it permanent.
Permanently straight and moisturised at the same time.



WORLDS FIRST


Now take that technology and place it in the hands of the most experienced Hair Straightening
salon in Perth and you’ll never look back.


NATURAL SHINE


Hair Straightening is a very particular set of skills along with a very focused level of attention to detail.
Unfortunately the common level around is slap the product on and set a timer.
Approaching every head like a text book application. That will only deliver mediocre results at best.
Will you like ?
Yes as a comparison to not having.... but
A lot of our clients often say they would get “wherever” in the past.
But once we did there was no way they were going elsewhere again.
They cannot believe the difference. You can read their comments in our reviews.

HEALTHY STRAIGHT


We book one experienced stylist who has had specific permanent straightening training.
(Which can take a long time to train)
Booked with YOU the entire service.
Different stylists have different tensions and two different stylists on one head is not going to
offer optimal results.
That stylist will have no other clients booked in the entire time. Just YOU as their only focus.
Every step, every strand is meticulously attended to. It can make a big difference to longevity and results.

You see that haircut

Jason Outten - Sunday, August 04, 2019

You see that haircut you like.
Just like the other one you liked on the post last week?



You’re ready, you make the call. But you cannot get an appointment ...
but you’re calling at 5pm trying to get in same day and the salon closes at 5.30pm .....
You plead with things like “just a quick cut” “won’t take long” “you don’t have to wash or dry it”


Seriously. Do you think thats how that cut you saw was done ? Last minute ?
Squeeze in ? No pre plan ? ...... Nope it did not.



It was more than likely at a pre booked appointment. There was time for a professional consultation.
There was time to do it professionally. Including the shampoo + style at end.
So we can cross check the haircut in all its forms. So it’s done right



.... but this actually happens. The call or the walk in and the “NOW” request..
That is not how great hair works


Sure if we have the time last minute we will do. But the majority of our clients have booked their appointments long
before the actual day. If we are booked we will NOT double book and not squeeze in or rush anyone.



Want THAT cut. Take a journey with us and lets do it properly and maybe the next “that cut”
you see is actually YOURS


Hair requests

Jason Outten - Sunday, July 28, 2019
Requests that result in a NO + why


What happens if your car is not working and you need it fixed? Do you call a mechanic and ask “how much” to fix?
How long will it take? Can you fix it?
How are they going to know if they don’t know the problem ? If you were the mechanic would you take the customers word
on what the problem was or would you need to see for yourself before you could answer any questions?
The majority of time a salon wants to give you an answer but cannot answer an impossible question
Think about that and read on



Coloured hair that is dark. Wanting to go lighter but just by putting a lighter colour over. No foils. No lightener.
Colour does not lift colour. It will not work. The outcome will be the darker of the two colours, which is what you have.
Most people ask not to have the lightener or foils etc as it costs more.
But thats what it needs.


Wanting to book a hair colour appointment after a home or other salon disaster but do not want to come in for a consult first.
The fix could be an hour,it could be a day. It may not even be possible in a day or at all. So what do we book out for that appointment?
Are you happy to pay regardless? No of course not. Just as we are unable to guess


Dark coloured hair wanting lighter “specific” tones in one standard appointment.
Impossible to know outcome until its done. May take several appointments, or longer.
So as long as you do not care what the colour comes out at 1st appt. ok. If not. No


Hair colour in pic was over pre lightened balayge and would take several appointments
to prep hair before final colour was achieved


Home colour or dark colour and wanting to book foils without a consultation, strand test prior.
Last time that happened the foils literally started to burn via chemical reaction because of what was on the hair.
Home colour and no test. No appointment.
If wanting same colour or darker no problem


Blonde shown is a regular blonde foil client 6-8 weekly so maintenance a lot easier.
Plus no toner required

Excessively curly or frizzy hair wanting a short sleek haircut style. But does not want to spend any time on hair.
You’ll hate your hair. It will never sit right unless you style it that way




Wanting a perm because you think like hair straightening you will now have perfect curls all the time.
A perm gives your hair the support/body for your curls to last all day. Once you style it.

Perm shown was styled to look this way. Perm gives structure to look

Asking for $500 results with a $200 budget.
Price is a consequence of the results.
That's why we ask so many questions.


Hair Straightening Done Right

Jason Outten - Sunday, June 23, 2019
If YOU got a great haircut would YOU find out what brand of scissors the hairdresser used
then call around to find someone using the same ones ? Then expect the same result.. No

We do a lot of chemical straightening and quiet often people think they can get same result
elsewhere if they use the same product.

You won’t. Just like the same scissors won’t give you the same haircut. Its just a tool.

Picture below is a classic example. It is an existing Permanent Hair Straightening client
you can see the regrowth. But more importantly you can see the straight hair past the re growth.
The hair we straightened last year.

We see people almost every week come in saying they have had permanent straightening
But they have not, yet they believe they have because the salon said they did.
If YOUR hair is still not straight. You DID NOT.

The product is 50% of the result. About 2-3 times a month we will hear these words
 “But they used the same product”

This is when they come back to see us and see if we can fix it after going somewhere else.

If YOU want the BEST results then call us.

Do YOU believe that just with a good product anyone can get the result below in this picture ?


NO they cannot. Sorry but that is the way it is

Just using the products the best hair straightening salon in Perth uses.
Will not give YOU the best results

WE DO........

So YOU want THAT Haircut

Jason Outten - Sunday, April 14, 2019
So YOU want THAT haircut.... You know. The one that sits right and was made for you. Here’s some info to help you achieve and maintain


Pick YOUR salon wisely. Check them out prior. Their web page, their social media. You’ll get a feel for what they are about and the type of work they do.... If every pic is a long blonde balayage and you’re rocking a pixie cut ...hmmm. .....and remember price is a consequence.
Most salons work on a similar rate of return. Whether that be $25 for 4 haircuts in an hour or $100 for 1 haircut in an hour. How much attention to your haircut do you want ? Or need ?


We only do “correct” haircuts. Consult, shampoo, cut, style, cross check haircut. You cannot cut hair correctly if you cannot see it in all its form and cross check it styled in the way it was cut for...... There are an average of 100,000 hairs on the human head and yes 2mm or 2cm is a haircut. Either way all 100,000 are cut.


CONSULT, CONSULT, CONSULT. 99% of hair problems are nothing technically wrong with whats been done to the hair. Its more what you wanted and what your hairdresser THOUGHT you wanted


Be specific, show pictures. We use pictures a lot. Its the clearest way to ensure everyone is on the same page, or in today's world screen.
We have an iPad and a Pinterest account full of looks. ... But remember pictures are ideas, looks, inspiration. This needs to be converted into YOUR look for YOUR hair.


YOUR best haircut will always be one that suites YOUR lifestyle and image. Be realistic about your hair type and look. Do you really want that flattened out asymmetrical cut that takes 30mins to style each morning when you said you have 5min max ??


Develop a trust with your salon, let them get to know YOUR hair. It’ll only make it look and feel better. The amount of times we hear a stylist say things like “oh look who is in today, remember her nape area needs extra attention to allow it to sit right” History like that makes a huge difference to YOUR results.


PLAN PLAN PLAN REBOOK REBOOK REBOOK.... do YOU get to that point where your hair is just not playing ball today.
You call your salon and they are full so its another week. But you have a haircut that needs cutting every 5 weeks and you call your salon at 8 weeks (that's why its not playing ball) and you cannot get in until the 9th week......
But that's only because all their other clients pre booked when their hair was due so their hair always plays ball.
We have clients that pre book the year or at least book their next at their last.
We have clients that call exactly 6 weeks every single time yet say “i won’t book ahead, i’ll see how i go” every single visit. Their 6 weekly is therefore hit and miss.


This is just a small part in the big picture of how some people always get their hair just right.
