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.

Making your Wedding Day Something to Remember

Weddings are one of the most intense experiences for any one person, let alone one couple. The question has been asked, the answer was a resounding YES! With that YES your life is about to change forever. There will be stresses, family politics, where are we going to live, shared bank accounts and we haven’t event gotten to organising the wedding yet!

Chatting to Bec the other day, Director at our Carlingford salon who recently got engaged, I shake my head when I hear from her all that has changed in her life since getting engaged. Is it worth all the hassle? Yes it is!

Kerastase Has Stood the Test of Time

It was way back in 1990 when I bought my first salon in Hurstville, that I was introduced to a product called Kerastase. Kerastase products have been around since 1964 and really are the pinnacle of all hair products. They stand for quality, luxury and beautiful hair.

Holidays are over and we are now well into February. Scary how time goes by so quickly. Three weeks ago I was in the USA skiing in sub zero temperatures, hard to imagine being in that cold now with the heat wave we have been having. Summer can really take its toll on our hair – let alone our children’s hair. We tend to make sure we are looking after our hair by using good products to maintain our luscious locks, but are we doing the same for our children?

My 5 Favourite Curly Hair Looks
picture5 picture6

When I started hairdressing back in the mid 80’s all we did all day every day was perm hair. Big curly hair was all the rage. Into the mid 90’s and 2000’s all we did was iron the hell out of hair to get it as straight as possible. Ceramic irons, Japanese Permanent Straightening and then a little later Keratin straightening became very popular.

GET A HAIRCUT AND HELP SAVE THE PLANET

SSA_FB_Post_04

You may be surprised to learn that the Australian hairdressing industry sends 1,500 tons of recyclable aluminium (that we use for foils, bleaching etc) back to landfill each year. That’s one and a half million kilos, about 715 cars, or 4 jumbo jets!

Unfortunately aluminium doesn’t degrade easily, it actually contaminates the soil for 500 years. Add to this the waste of plastics, colour tubes, cut hair and more, and you soon see that beauty at any price is no longer an option.

Dyson Hair Dryer vs Parlux 3200

It took many years of convincing by my wife to buy a Dyson Vacuum cleaner and was it worth it? Not really. Yes they look impressive they work just as well as any other cleaner but generally they are double the price. Value for money? I think not. Good marketing? Yes.

Will she convince me to spend $699 on the Dyson Hairdryer? Well now we are in my territory and I have this little comparison to put forward my case.
