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.

My question to Damien was “When is it going to go out of fashion?” He said he is starting to see some change now with a lot more people going with solid colours. Healthy looking hair with lots of shine, in muted browns, is the go for winter was his opinion. I’m yet to be convinced – with what’s happening in the salons I think Balayage is here for a little longer.


When having Balayage the first thing that comes to mind to care for your hair is Olaplex. Having colour treatments like Balayage and other forms of highlights can take its toll on your hair. This amazing treatment, which you can read about here, is another amazing innovation in hair. Nothing comes close to this product when it comes to caring for coloured hair or any type of hair for that matter. It can be applied with your colour or as a stand-alone treatment.



Don’t forget to ask your stylist about an Olaplex treatment next time you are in the salon. Your hair will love you for it. Olaplex is available at all our 3 salons Parramatta, Carlingford and Camden.


Speaking of our Camden Salon, it’s been 3 weeks since opening day and Lemai is doing an amazing job there. If you know anyone in that area please recommend him or her to our salon. Our awesome opening offer is still available! Check it out here.


Look out for shots of the team training with Damien soon and don’t forget to ask what’s happening in the world of hair colour when you are in next – because after all, a change can be as good as a holiday if you need a refresh!
