Spring is Sprung!

September is a beautiful time of year. The days are getting longer and nights are getting warmer. The thought that summer is near puts a smile on your face. It’s been a cool dry winter and I am looking forward to some warmer weather. Spring is a great time of the year for change, and what better way to get ready for party season, than getting a new hair do. In this post we are talking Blonde. We have some great blonde looks and will feature the Kerastase Blond Absolu range of products designed to vitalise Blonde hair. Read on to find out all things spring hair and we also have a great Blond Absolu in-salon offer as well.

Blonde Refresh

Our first look on the beautiful Natalie was a freshening up of some blonde highlights. We added some more highlights, toned and treated her to give her a revitalised colour. We used Olaplex to strengthen and protect her hair and recommended the Kerastase Blond Absolu products to maintain her cool tone and give condition and shine to the hair.

 

Cool Blonde

What a great look for Spring. From a grown out faded colour to a sheik, stylish cool blonde LOB. A classic look that can be worn textured or smooth. Casey’s hair was highlighted by our Carlingford team and toned with a cool overtone. The result is stunning and the smile on Casey’s face says it all.

Who Dares Wins

If you are really daring why not try short and platinum. Long wavy hair with Balayage has been a hit for a while now. Take a walk on the wild side and go for a dramatic change like our gorgeous client Monique.  If you would love a style that turns heads talk to your Hair by Phd stylist today.

Kerastase Blond Absolu

There have many hair-care companies that have come out with blonde specific products. They have come to realise that blonde hair really needs specific care. Having your hairlightened can take its toll on the condition ofyour hair and it is very important to take care for it after you leave the salon by using quality home hair care products.

I would like to introduce Kerastase Blond Absolu. This range consists of 5 products and in salon ritual.

  • There are two shampoos one for tone, condition and shine and one for condition and shine.
  • A fondant (conditioner/treatment), which strengthens your hair as well as adding shine.
  • A Masque that tones the hair as well as leaving the hair feeling nourished and amazing.
  • A leave in heat protectant that can be used on wet or dry hair. Protecting the hair from the elements and giving your blonde hair an extra boost of condition and shine.

The range allows your stylist to recommend a personalised regime to keep your blonde hair looking amazing.

Hair by Phd Spring Blond Absolu Offer

During the month of September and October if you purchase any two of the Blond Absolu products we will give a FREE in-salon Blond Absolu Ritual with any colour service.

Winter Hair

Autumn Winter is a great time for fashion. Even though we seem to have had an endless summer there are signs of the weather turning. The colours on the trees are changing and those beautiful autumn colours are out and about.

It is also a great time of year for a style change. In this post I will share a few looks to give you some ideas on a change of hair colour or style. Also we will give you some information on how to keep your hair feeling fantastic during the cold winter months
It can be dramatic or as subtle as you like. I have also featured quite a few styles with fringes/bangs, this is a great way to change your whole appearance if a change of colour is not what you desire.

If you are interested in a change chat to your Hair by Phd stylist next time you visit on of our salons.

Winter Blondes

We generally relate blonde hair with spring summer; however there really are no rules. Below is a stunning blonde that will look great this time of the year and compliment Autumn winter fashion.

This is beautiful subtle highlighted look created by Ainsley at our Carlingford salon. A neutral blonde that can worn all year round. We can also make this a multi tone and add some darker colours in the mix.

This winter makeover was created by Bec at our Carlingford salon. Katie went blonde over the summer and wanted a change for the cooler season. As you can see the makeover has created a beautiful autumn winter brown which has added shine to Katie’s hair. It has also given Katie’s skin a beautiful glow.

Before the winter make over (below):

Cool Violet

This look was created by Selma at our Carlingford salon. Adding the cool violet tones gives this look a real point of difference. Fringes/bangs are great way to change you whole style add that edge to your look.

Hair Extensions

Lemai at our Camden salon created this gorgeous look on our client Jemma, by adding Seamless1 hair extensions to create colour, length add fullness. Hair extensions are a great way to achieve your hair goals quickly. Lemai also added a beautiful winter brown to Jemma’s hair to make the most of her summer Balayage.

Mother’s Day at Hair by Phd 2019

Mothers come in all shapes and sizes, not a one size fits all. Mothers are unique, one of kind individuals that all share one thing, love. When we think of Mothers Day, we at Hair by Phd want to celebrate all that it is to be a mother. The bond between mother and child is unique. Yes they all aren’t perfect, but there is always a certain level of emotive connection when we talk about mother – whether its good, bad or indifferent.

In Australia, there are over 6 millions mums and countless more mother figures that we celebrate on this special day. Mums are amazing aren’t they? Who else would do your washing, cook you that favourite meal, be the shoulder that you can cry on, pick you up when you are down and still fuss over you long after you have left home, living on your own, or even having become a parent yourself. I can’t but think how much Mothers give up for that title – they give up their  figure, their waistline, their sleep, their space, their peace and quiet. Bottom line is they’d even give their lives.

In our Phd team, we have babies being born everywhere. I’m sure that I will need to get the water going to our salons tested! Sarah from our Parramatta salon recently became a mum, welcoming her beautiful baby boy in February (pictured below right), while Hope from Parramatta is due in May and our Director from the Carlingford salon, Rebecca, is due in September.

To celebrate all the Mums in our lives, here’s the Hair By Phd Mothers Day Offer.

Hair by Phd Colour Makeovers

Spring is generally a time when we will consider many changes. A reminder that summer is coming, we start to think about heading back to the gym, re-evaluating our wardrobe or maybe even a hair colour change. Changing your hair colour can be simple but it also can be very complex.

Hair by Phd Colour Training with Damien Rayner

As mentioned in my last post I recently caught up with the amazing colourist Damien Rayner. Damien was voted one of the top 15 colourists in 2012 by Harper’s Bazaar and we have been lucky enough to have Damien as an educator in our salon since 2010.

A CONVERSATION ABOUT BALAYAGE

 

I recently sat down and had a chat with colourist extraordinaire Damien Rayner. We are organising to have Damien in our salon very shortly to do some more colour training with the team and the subject of Balayage came up. I’ve been hairdressing for over 30 years now and Balayage would have to be the longest lasting colour look in that time.

Introducing Hair by Phd Camden

It’s coming up to three years since I opened Hair by Phd Carlingford with Rebecca. To date it’s been a great journey and Rebecca has really grown as a stylist and an amazing mentor to her team.

People say, “Why don’t you open more salons?” I wish it were that easy. Finding the locations is easy; but the secret is finding the right people to partner with – well I have found another good egg to partner with!

Red Carpet Hair 2017

Last week Louise, Samantha, Sarah and Lemai from our Parramatta salon were asked to style the hair for all the WAGS from the A-League for the FFA awards night. The girls did an amazing job on all the hair, as you will see in the images posted below. It got us talking about how much the red carpet hairdo’s and celebrities do have an effect on fashion.

A Mother’s Love is one that does not stop giving

My mum once told me that you don’t start growing old until you lose your mum. I am very blessed to still have my mum and could never imagine life without her.  I saw an interview with Kelly Rowland on 60 Minutes on the weekend, she spoke about losing her mum recently and the devastating effect it had on her. A bond between mother and child is definitely like no other.

Autumn is a great time for a Hair Change!

After a long hot summer it’s been a nice change to get some cooler weather. I drove down to Thredbo over the Easter break and for those of you who have never been to the snowy’s in winter or any other time of the year it is a must do.
