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.

Seamless1 Hair Extensions at Hair by Phd

If you’re addicted to the car crash reality TV show they call Married at First Sight, you would have noticed the shocking hair extensions on one of the brides, Elizabeth. Poorly blended, noticeable hair extensions are enough to make you cringe. In fact, the reason people are reluctant towards hair extensions stems from the fear of an unblended result. Seamless1 Hair Extension prevent this issue with their AAA standard individually crafted hair extensions, their products provide clients with quality, affordable hair for a seamless result. As an official stockist of Seamless1 hair extensions, our Hair by Phd  salons – Parramatta,Carlingford and Camden and  – offer quality hair extension application and styling services.

 

We have been doing hair extensions for many years and we are always looking at how adding extensions to a style can elevate a client’s desired look. Hair extensions are an amazing way to give people of all ages longer and fuller hair, instantly. There are so many ways we can use hair extensions, including adding extensions to volumise hair on short styles or thin and damaged hair, adding colour to your style as well as providing instant length to your hair. You can even pop in clip-in extensions and you can have a totally different look for that special occasion in ten minutes!

 

I recently did a Q&A with our Hair by Phd Parramatta Director (and my sister) Louise about how hair extensions boosted her confidence. In the video, Louise explains how her hair-loss had a massive impact on her self-confidence until she discovered hair-extensions, which had a life-changing result on her appearance and self-esteem.

 

Hair by Phd recently had a Seamless1 training day for our team of stylists. We did a photoshoot with photographer extraordinaire, Justin Aveling to showcase our four stunning models whose hair was transformed by the power of Seamless1 Hair Extensions. Below are the stories of each model and how extensions done properly can have an uplifting effect on you.

Meet Eliana

Eliana is our gorgeous over 40’s model, she has thick wavy hair, and was after more length and colour in her hair without having to spend the time growing it long and potentially drying out her hair, by adding more colour.

We used three different colours in her hair to create this complex play on colour (Cappuccino, Espresso and Opal/Mocha). Eliana was so pleased with the result she was floating out of the salon after we did her hair, even her hubby thought he had a new bride that night! Eliana beams with a new-found confidence, her smile is this shot says it all.

 

 

Meet Brianna

Brianna is a professional model whose hair had taken a beating after having bonded hair extensions. She had taken them out and her hair was left in a mess, so she resorted to getting a short-style cut to mend the damage. When I first spoke to Brianna, she was a little reluctant to have extensions after her past experience. I reassured her that Seamless1 tape extensions, if done properly, will not damage the integrity of her hair and she will have her natural long locks back again in no time!

We used three different blonde tones to match Brianna’s highlighted hair (Vanilla, Opal and Milkshake). Brianna was thrilled with the end result. She had her beautiful long hair back which looked healthy and stunning. Colour matching is a real art, where professional application of hair extensions leaves client’s hair looking nourished and natural.

 

 

Meet Sophie

Sophie is part of the NSW Swifts netball squad. Her vigorous training schedule makes it very hard to manage her hair. Sophie is getting married later this year and wanted longer hair for her wedding without having a high maintenance regime as she is unable to dedicate time to her hair.

We used clip-in extensions for Sophie’s hair. This gave her extra length in a matter of minutes that totally changed her look. Sophie can conveniently take out her clip-ins for training and netball games and reapply the clip-ins herself any time she feels like a change of look. Clip-in extensions are a great tape extension alternative to fit in beautifully with a busy lifestyle like Sophie’s. As an added bonus, Sophie will also have the long hairstyle of her dreams for her wedding day! The colour we used for Sophie’s clip-in’s is Milkshake/Cinnamon.

 

Meet Ash

The stunning Ash does some part-time acting and modeling; she wanted to add some length and volume to her hair. Her hair was already reasonably long but Ash wanted it longer without the pain of waiting for it to happen naturally.

We used two colours on Ash to blend the extensions in with her highlighted hair. (Summer Days and Velvet/Vanilla). The results speak for themselves – longer, fuller gorgeous hair in an hour with the Seamless1 tape extensions. It’s like magic!

 

The power to really change someone’s look in a short period of time is something the team at Hair by Phd have at their disposal to give to you. If you are interested in having a complimentary consultation on how Seamless1 Hair Extensions can change your look, contact your Hair by Phd salon to book an appointment. Seamless1 Hair Extensions are available at our Parramatta, Carlingford and Camden salons. Check out more of our hair extension images on our social media, or get in touch here to organise a consultation time.

Christmas at Hair by Phd 2018

Yep! It’s that time of the year again; Briony and I were watching a program last night on Christmas in England. It was about some celebrities and their take on an English Christmas. They are a funny lot the English I tell you. We had a good laugh and then Briony said that Christmas is a very stressful time of year. It does seem crazy that we all go nuts for this one day.

For some it’s about the religious aspect, others about the presents and some just enjoy the parties. For me it’s catching up with family and friends and just taking time out, eating good food and sharing great wines.

Whatever Christmas means to you, looking and feeling great about you is where Hair by Phd comes in. We have some great Christmas packages and gift ideas this Christmas. Whether it’s about spoiling yourself or spoiling someone you love a Hair by Phd Christmas package is a great way to go. Giving the gift of beautiful hair is what we do best.

Wow! What a year? It has certainly flown by! Funny how you feel like you are just getting over last Christmas and before you know it the party season lead up is on your doorstep again. It’s been a very big year for Hair by Phd. At the start we introduced our amazing new Opulence Membership Program, Hair by Phd Bridal and in June we opened Hair by Phd three in Camden. Lemai is doing an amazing job establishing herself in Camden and we have been lucky enough to be joined by Damien Rayner, one of Australia’s top colourists.

AUSTRALIAN TOP HAIR COLOURIST COMES TO HAIR BY PHD CAMDEN

You have all heard me talk about him. Damien Rayner has been working with team Hair by Phd for over seven years now, educating the team on all things hair colour. I am very proud to announce that Damien will now be joining Lemai and her team at Hair by Phd Camden.

This is not only exciting for us but for the Camden community to have a Hair Colourist of Damien’s elk working in the area. Voted in the top 15 Australian hair colourists by Harpers Bazaar, Damien is one of the nicest guys I have met in the industry, and a magician when it comes to Balayage. He has worked at some of Australia’s top salons, not to mention done stints in New York and London.

  

Damien moved into the Camden/Narellan area a few years ago with his partner for a lifestyle change and continued to commute to the city for work. Through our long-term relationship, it was a natural fit when it came to securing his services at our Camden salon. What does that mean for you? Well if you live in the area or surrounding suburbs, you do not have to trek into the city anymore to find a quality Hair Colourist. The best has come to town.

Damien is not only the Balayage king; his skills are just as superior in all aspects of hair colour. From Balayage, Ombre, colour makeovers, foil highlighting and more, Damien is the colour expert.

And best of all, we have an amazing offer for anyone who would love to have his or her hair coloured by Damien.

You will receive a complimentary in-salon consultation, so Damien can assess your hair and create a plan for your desired look. This also allows Damien to determine the time needed for your colour appointment.

You will also receive a complimentary bottle of Schwarzkopf BC Shampoo and Conditioner valued at $53.90, which can be upgraded to a Kerastase Shampoo and Conditioner if desired.

For more information on the times Damien will be available in our Camden salon, call now on 02 4622 1260 or email us on camden@hairbyphd.com.au

Damien and Lemai look forward to seeing you in our salon located at Shop 2 Albert Baker Arcade 165-167 Argyle St, Camden.

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.

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!
