French Styling Photoshoot by Hair by Phd + Oh It’s Perfect!

The team from Hair by Phd were invited to collaborate on a stunning French-Inspired photoshoot recently, working with some of the best in the business in Sydney.

The photoshoot touches on a French revival style that is totally on trend as the seasons shift. From fashion to food to beautiful hair, we are all being inspired to be a little more French in our day to day lives. Oui Oui!

Paritcularly on the hair side, we are seeing a rise in requests for big, beautiful bangs as this trend circles round again to be back in fashion.

Soft curls like these are infinitely wearable, from the office to a night out. Beautiful highlights and balayage colour keep the hair looking lush even with a simple style like this.

The ponytail is getting a makeover to be anything but basic. Big and full, styled with strong bangs and add a touch of personality with a ribbon, a la Parisian style.

We are seeing a rise in center parts again as bangs become popular and we move away from the side part that has dominated hair for the past decade. A few face framing pieces soften the look and refresh it.

Keep your accessories unique and interesting to compliment this French style. Simple hair and classic fashions often need a lift, and accessories are the quickest way to do that.

If you’re looking for a French Makeover in your hair, whether its in your cut, colour or style, the team from Hair by Phd would love to help you live out your Parisian dream! Speak to any of our stylists in salon today to refresh your look and give you that effortless glamour that is so typical of French women. Book your appointment online at www.hairbyphd.com.au and we look forward to welcoming you into our salons.

How do I maintain my Hair Colour after leaving the salon?

Having your hair coloured in the salon is in most cases a great experience. Walking out with a great new look, feeling like you are ready to take on the world. As hairdressers, we love making our clients feel like this. After investing the time and money into your beautiful hair, you want to make sure you look after your investment over the next few weeks. In this post, I will go over some suggestions on how to do this successfully.

 

Whether you have had just had your hair highlighted or have had an amazing new colour put through, you want this to last. The best way to maintain your colour is through a structured regime with quality products.

The first thing to consider is the condition of your hair. Simply put, the better the condition of your hair the longer your hair colour will last. The best way to make sure your hair is in the optimum condition is through in-salon treatments. You would have read my posts on the Olaplex treatment in the past and this product has really revolutionised the in-salon treatment. The ability for this treatment to repair pretty much any damaged hair is amazing. Olaplex can be used as a treatment prior, during and after your colour service. I would also recommend a visit to your stylist in between colour services for a stand-alone Olaplex treatment, especially if you have your hair highlighted. With all our Olaplex services you will receive a take-home Olaplex No 3 treatment valued at $49.95.

 

We also have a great range of Kerastase and Schwarzkopf treatments, which are personalised for your hair type. This is a great way to leave your hair looking and feeling amazing and to have that post-salon feeling all the time.

 

When it comes to using home hair-care products, your stylist is the best person to speak to. Choosing the correct product for your hair type is essential to get the best results. Below is a list of products that can help you maintain the best tone in your colour.

Schwarzkopf Igora Expert Mousse

This is an easy-to-use colour mousse, which not only tones your hair but also leaves it feeling moisturised. It has built-in conditioning agents that allow you to use it once a week as a colour refresher, toner and treatment. Schwarzkopf Igora Expert Mousse comes in a range of shades for toning and colour refreshing so that your home hair-care is suited specifically to your colour and style.

 

 

Schwarzkopf BC Silver Shampoo

This is a sulphate-free silver shampoo that is very gentle on the hair and with regular use keeps your highlighted hair looking true to tone. With all the elements our hair is exposed to, like the sun, chlorinated water and other hair products, your hair can change tone very easily. Using Schwarzkopf BC Silver Shampoo keeps highlighted hair looking fantastic and keeps those pesky yellow or brassy tones from coming back into your beautiful blonde. It is also great for naturally white or light hair that can have a tendency to throw that unwanted yellow tone.

 

 

Schwarzkopf Blonde Me Range

The Schwarzkopf Blonde Me Range is formulated purely for blondes. It includes a comprehensive range of products that care for your blonde hair at home, including a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in moisturiser spray and treatment, all with cool or warm tonal additives in them. Bonus, the entire range is sulphate free, which is good for your health and good for your hair. If you have highlighted hair or are naturally blonde, this is range is a must for you.

 

 

Kerastase Reflection Chromatique Range

The Kerastase Chromatique Range is specifically for coloured hair. The formulation protects the hair from the sun with its UV protectant and other external elements like copper, calcium and chlorine that are found in our water. It leaves coloured hair with amazing shine and really protects the hair from colour fade. The Kerastase Reflection Chomatique Range includes products to suit both thick and thin hair also with colour additives to keep your colour looking fresh and bright, with that salon-fresh tone we know you love.

 

With any of the products or product ranges mentioned above, please make sure you consult your expertly trained stylist at Hair by Phd when choosing which to purchase. It is very important that we prescribe the right product for you and your hair specifically, so you can continue to have amazing hair after leaving the salon.

My Five Tips For Healthy Hair This Summer

The holidays are over! How many of you feel like you haven’t even been on one. Back to routine like the holidays never even happened. I remember prior to having children and before our kids went to school, we always took our holidays in February. No crowds, great weather and half the price. They were good times and maybe some of you are in a position to be on holidays now. It’s a great position to be in. I loved being in Sydney in January, good weather, no traffic and lots to do. Sydney is a great place when it’s not packed to the rafters.

Summer holidays can take its toll on the condition of your hair. The sun, salt or chlorinated water can have very harsh effects on your hair. Your hair can become de-hydrated; the effects of the sun can strip your colour away and make it very brittle. It is very important to take good care of your hair during summer and below is my five tips to keeping your hair looking and feeling great.

  1. Visit your stylist!

    After being away in the sun and the surf the best thing you can do is get your hair trimmed. A good trim will help seal those split ends and bring some life back to hair. While you are there ask your stylist about an intensive moisture treatment to really rehydrate your hair. At Hair by Phd we have some great options when it comes to rehydration with either our Schwarzkopf and Kerastase ranges.

  2. Cover Up!

    Like your skin your hair will benefit from less exposure to the sun and the elements. A hat, scarf or if you do a lot of swimming in a pool a swim cap are the way to go.

  3. Home Hair Care Products!

    A quality Shampoo, Conditioner, Treatment and leave-in moisturiser is a must. Ask your stylist about what they can recommend for your hair type. At Hair by Phd we can even literally put your hair and scalp under a microscope and give you the best products from our Kerastase range that will re-vitalise your hair personalised just for you.

  4. Keep using hot tools to a minimum!

    I know this is hard to go without your styling tools, but it a great time of year to let your hair hang free. Apply a good moisturiser by softly scrunching it into your hair to give that loose beachy look. You can also tie it up into a loose updo. In summer your hair takes a lot less time to dry and you can use this to your advantage.

  5. Wash your hair straight after being in the surf!

    Using your quality products the regime should be shampoo, condition and treat. Do this as soon as you can after exposing your hair to the elements. If you can’t do a treatment straight away, your leave-in moisturiser is a must.

 

So whether you’re on holidays enjoying the sun and the surf up or down our beautiful coastline or in Sydney enjoying the pool and our wonderful beaches care for your hair. I hope the tips above are helpful. If you have any questions ask your Hair by Phd stylist for advice.

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.

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.

Hair Expo 2016

Hair Expo was held in Melbourne this year for the first time. What a weekend we had. Melbourne is a great town always so much to do down there. The city just seems to be so well planned with all it’s great entertainment venues.

Louise, Bec and myself went down for most of the weekend and as a hairdresser it is a great environment to be in to get the creative juices flowing. The girls did some seminars and got see and meet the celebrity hairstylist Guy Tang. Bec even waited in line to get a selfie with him. Selfie attached.

guy-tang

For those who are not aware I am currently the Vice-President of Hair and Beauty Australia also known as HABA. HABA is an industry association and we had a stand at Hair Expo. I spent two days on the stand chatting to other salon owners. Like other trades salon owners are struggling to find good people to employ. Apprentices are rare as hen’s teeth these days and it is sad to see so many former salon owners closing their doors and just operating from a home salon.

haba

This works well for the individual, but is very bad for the industry as in the not too distant future the trade will collapse. So please support salon owners who do support the industry, as we need more young people being taught these skills not only with hairdressers but other trades as well? It makes me sad to see great trades people not sharing their skills. Their skill will die with them.

Also over the weekend we had two of our younger team members Hope and Tiana, join us for a day at Expo. It was also great to catch up with five other former Hair by Phd stylists. Isabelle who was my senior when I started in 1985 is back in the salon re-skilling. After moving away from the industry to have a family of 5 kids she has found a new found enthusiasm for hairdressing and is spending a few hours a week in the salon. It’s very inspiring to see her so excited about learning after so many years.

Julie, Mary, Michelle and Suzie all came down and had a girly weekend it was great to catch up with all the girls. I worked with most of these girls back in the late eighties and early nineties’.

I have attached some of the photos from over the weekend. Hairdressing is truly a great industry to be involved in and it is really the people that make it, from our wonderful clients to all our teammates and generally all the people involved in the industry.
