Miss Danika comes to Hair by Phd Camden

Before I met the lovely Miss Danika (pictured above), I must say I was a bit sceptical about cosmetic tattooing, mainly because I didn’t know a lot about it. Now after seeing how she has transformed Lemai’s eyebrows (our Salon Director at Camden), I am a true convert. Lemai pictured below far right.

When I left Lemai, as Miss Danika was about to start tattooing, Lemai was feeling a tad anxious. I called her later in the day and asked her to send me photos of the end result. Once I saw them I was a bit shocked at first because they were a bit darker than I anticipated. However after a few days they had settled and the result was amazing. She had beautiful eyebrows without having to paint them on every day.

 

“Did it hurt?” was my first question. Lemai mentioned that Miss Danika had used some numbing cream and it did not hurt at all. Bonus!

 

You can have your eyebrows, eyeliner and lips transformed with this amazing service. The tattooing is semi- permanent, which is great as it lasts. It’s also very natural looking and there are multiple colours to choose from. The images below are of Lemai two months after the treatment.

See below the list of services and prices. Enjoy the images above for Lemai’s before and after as well as some of Miss Danika’s other work.

Miss Danika is available by appointment at Hair by Phd Camden. She has also got an amazing offer for all our clients. Here it is…

A GREENER CHOICE FOR HAIRDRESSING

More than ever, we know that our clients are concerned with the amount of waste being produced by society. Programs like The War on Waste from the ABC and legislation changes have really brought concerns about the future of recycling and our planet into the spotlight – right where it should be.

We know that in hairdressing there is a lot of waste produced. From empty shampoo bottles, to hair and chemical waste after your colour is applied, to the 1,500 tons of recyclable aluminium back to landfill by the Australian Hairdressing industry alone each year. There are plenty of ways in which a relaxing afternoon at the salon could be causing serious harm to the earth. We decided a number of years ago that this couldn’t continue to be the case.

Hair by Phd have been members of the Sustainable Salons programs in all our salons for the past few years. We are proud to share that we now recycle up to 95% of our salon waste in our Parramatta, Carlingford and Camden Salons and it is all thanks to our clients. A $2.50 donation from you on your hair treatments in salon over the past 2 years has allowed us to change the way our business is run and allowed us to help do our bit to make the world a better place.

 

“The hairdressing industry needs to take action now, and take care of the environment as much as we take care of clients”, says Paul Frasca, co-founder of SSA.  Hairdressers today really care about making their salon as eco-friendly as possible”.

 

Watch our latest episode of Hair by Phd On The Wall where we interview Paul Fresca, co-founder of Sustainable Salons Australia, and take a tour through their depot as we look to what actually happens to our salon waste through their program.

 

Every time you visit one of our salons, your visit supports our ongoing commitment to reduce our ecological footprint, achieve zero waste, support charitable causes and implement environmentally sustainable practices in all that we do at Hair by Phd.

Through Sustainable Salons Australia, we are able to recycle our waste in ways that seriously support the community and reduce the impact of your monthly salon visit:

  • All the proceeds gained from recycling the salon’s metals will be donated to not-for-profit community-based organisations that do a killer job helping humanity
  • Plastic product bottles, packaging and bags are recycled into outdoor furniture and underground sheeting to protect the NBN
  • Any leftover chemicals will be recycled into water and used in construction and roadworks
  • Cut–off hair will support charitable causes such as oil spill clean-up projects, local community gardens and charitable wig making services
  • Once our tools reach their end of life, they will be broken down and all valuable parts will be repurposed

We want to thank our loyal clients for their support in our work with Sustainable Salons Australia, and to the team from SSA for their support of our team as we learn new, less impactful ways of hairdressing. The future of the hairdressing industry certainly looks greener for your efforts.

PLUS every time you buy a take-home hair care product, we will give you an extra entry in the draw for every product you buy. The pack includes products from Kerastase, Lancôme and Bvlgari, an incredible luxury prize pack to celebrate our beautiful salon.

Damien Rayner will be available for this particular service on every Friday if you or a friend would like to have your colour consultation with him.

The salon offers a range of hair services, specialising in Balayage, colour correction, tape hair extensions and specialist treatments like Olaplex and Keratin Smoothing. We have the best in hair products featuring Kerastase, Schwarzkopf, Cloud Nine and more.

MOTHER’S DAY 2018

I read in a newspaper article the other day that a certain Australian business was not allowing their staff to use the term Mum and Dad. Why? I hear you ask, I think it might have something to do with political correctness. “What a load of crap” I say. I find this very offensive, and would like to know how being a mum or dad can be offensive. As a dad I think it is one of the most amazing gifts I have ever been given. As for mums, well,  my experience with mums is one of absolute delight.

The mums in our lives make us all better people. How can one take offence to this institution just does not make sense to me. The relationship I have with my mother has given me an understanding of how to parent my children. It is totally unconditional. The relationship my children have with their mum and their grandmother’s is the making of them. To see the unconditional love that Briony has with our children is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced.

Briony as well as being an amazing mother to our four boys has had some great achievements in the past twelve months. She has been appointed the Head Coach of the NSW Swifts netball team. The Swifts are the team she played for 14 years ago. She is very excited about this new challenge and has inherited a great bunch of girls to coach. Her experience as a mum I believe is helping her manage the demands of the team from an emotional sense as well as from a technical or netball point of view.

Working with a team myself who are predominately female has its challenges emotionally, however it has many rewards as well. Mentoring a team is a great responsibility and is a great way to really influence people’s lives in a great way. This skill of nurturing is one that comes from being a mum and being loved by a mum.

I am truly blessed to have a great relationship with the mums in my life including my mother in-law. She will find that line amusing. I also understand that many people have not or have lost their mum. I can’t imagine what that would be like.

I asked my mum once after having my first child Sebastian, and not understanding how you could possibly love anyone else as much as my first born “ How do you share your love with multiple children?” Her answer to me was “the more you have the more you love them all.”

It is hard for me to comprehend how we can ban people from using the term Mum and Dad, and I think this Mother’s Day we should be loud and proud of celebrating all MUMS!

Hair by Phd will be celebrating Mother’s Day with the gift of beautiful hair. The bubbles will be flowing in all three locations to celebrate our mums the week leading up to Mother’s Day. Spoil mum with a Hair by Phd Gift voucher this Mother’s Day and we will give you up to a $100 gift voucher for FREE. Here’s how it works.

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.

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!

Should everyday be Mother’s Day?
My Mum and family.

My Mum and family.

Well I think everyone would agree that everyday should be Mother’s Day, however I don’t think we should reduce the significance of Mother’s Day. It is a day where we celebrate our mums. What would we do without them?

My mum is one of a kind. She totally lives for her family and a more selfless woman you would not meet. As much as my family and I really appreciate her I would dearly love to see her do more for herself. It’s just not how she operates.

My wife Briony and the boys

Then we have the new generation mum (my wife), I have to take my hat off to her. She works part time, coaches’ two netball teams and still finds time to be an amazing mum to our three boys. Wow, I get tired just thinking about it.

I am sure you all have stories you can tell about the mums in your life. They are truly special people and they shape and influence so many lives. This is why I think it should be Mother’s Day everyday. We can’t buy them gifts everyday but through our actions we need to really make them feel appreciated every day.

So what do we buy mum for Mother’s Day? Flowers is a given, I think it is the biggest day on the local florists calendar. Let’s face it every girl loves to get flowers mum or not. So many things on offer these days we are overwhelmed with choices and ideas which I think makes it even harder.

We love spoiling mums at Hair by Phd and next week we have a big week installed for them. We will be serving sparkling wine to all our mums and we  will be giving a complementary hand massage with every service. So if the gift of beautiful hair is something you would like to give your mum, we have a great gift voucher offer to pamper your mum with.

Here’s the offer!

  • Buy a $100 voucher and get a $50 voucher for FREE
  • Buy a $150 voucher and get a $75 voucher for FREE
  • Buy a $200 voucher and get a $100 voucher for FREE

The vouchers can be used on any full priced hairdressing service at Hair by Phd and the free vouchers are valid until 5 July 2014.

So if you want to really spoil mum this Mother’s Day or maybe just spoil yourself grab one of our gift vouchers. You can call into the salon, phone or email us to organise yours. Be quick as we will only have 37 vouchers available with this offer.

Email info@hairbyphd.com.au or phone on 96354721.

Can’t get to us in time we will post the vouchers out to you free of charge.

Also if you would like to win mum a bottle of Pommery French Champagne and a Turbo Ion Titanium XL Straightening Iron valued at over $200, click on to our Facebook page below and tell us why your mum is the best mum in the world. The best answer as judged by the Hair by Phd Team wins the prize. Prize winner will be announced on Friday 9 May 2014.

To all the mums out there we hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day and you get spoiled rotten.

Cheers
