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.

Hair by PHD Real Bride – Shadi

Introducing our beautiful bride, Shadi!

 

Shadi was truly a classic beauty on her wedding day! Hair by Phd Bridal were thrilled to be apart of Shadi’s big day and create these stunning looks for her and her bridal party.

 

Shadi was an existing client of Hair by Phd Carlingford and has been having her stunning balayage done by Selma (who is returning from Maternity Leave really soon!). We were of course thrilled to work with her on one of the most important days of her life.

 

Thanks to her stunning colour and naturally thick and luscious hair, Shadi decided on a simple, soft and natural curl to compliment her highly detailed dress. Selma achieved this look by using a ceramic curling iron and setting her curls in clips, by doing so Selma was able to ensure her curls would last all day and into the evening.

 

Shadi chose a strapless, highly detailed dress with both lace and beadwork. Because of the detail in the dress, this meant that simple hair was the order of the day. Selma created a beautifully simple style that complimented the total look and it was very important that the hair lasted the whole day and night. By setting the hair correctly Selma was able to achieve this so the hair remained bouncy and fresh as when it was first done.

Our Bride had 7 beautiful bridesmaids for which Sarah created a soft and textured ponytail with delicate pieces around their faces. Perfectly suited to accompany the bride’s style as well as each of the bridesmaids. With beautifully coordinated dresses on each of the bridesmaids and similar hair lengths, creating absolutely matching styles for these ladies was the obvious choice and in a group of 7 truly creates stunning repetition.

Huge congratulations to Shadi and her husband Alexander on their beautiful wedding and thank you so much for allowing the Hair by Phd Bridal team to help you achieve your dream wedding.

 

If you or someone you know is getting married and are looking for the perfect team to handle your hair on the day, trust the team from Hair by Phd Bridal. We love hair and we love weddings and we want to make sure that both are perfect for you on your special day.

Get in touch with us via our website at www.hairbyphd.com.au/bridal and let’s make some lovely hair.

HAIR BY PHD REAL BRIDES – Katie

The team from Hair by Phd Bridal worked with our Real Bride Katie to create a truly stunning style for her beautiful wedding in Camden. We love being able to share and showcase a range of different bridal looks from our team at Hair by Phd Bridal and this soft updo is the true definition of a modern classic.

Katie’s dress was a dramatic masterpiece with long train, lace detailing and a double layered veil. That meant that there were some serious considerations to include for our Hair by Phd Bridal team in ensuring that we created the right upstyle to anchor the veil and allow the beautiful structure of the dress to shine.

We created a beautiful loose bun at the back of Katie’s head, which allowed us to effectively hide the anchoring point for the veil and left her neck and shoulders free to really highlight the neckline of the dress and her stunning decollete. Some loosely curled locks were left around her face to give some softness and movement to the look.

Hair by Phd Bridal also created stunning upstyles for Katie’s three bridesmaids that were similar to her style, but distinctly different. The same soft bun as showcased on the bride was pulled around to the right hand side to give an asymmetrical look to the hair. The heavy hair on the right was balanced by a large braid on the left hand side and loose locks on the right hand side of their faces. With the addition of some small roses in the bun, these ladies looked every inch the beautiful bridesmaids.

With similar-but-not-the-same dresses continuing to be all the rage in weddings, its important to note that iif you’re going this route it’s a good idea to have similar hair styles for your bridesmaids. With the dresses being quite different, similar hairstyles adds a sense of cohesion to the bridal party. With these girls, they each had a different style top half of their dresses, and having the same hair meant that they still all looked like they were part of the same party.

Katie was an incredible bride on her wedding day and we were thrilled to help her achieve her dream hair for her wedding day. Wishing Katie and Shannon all the best for their marriage and future, and thank you for letting us be part of your special day.

The team from Hair by Phd Bridal have been creating stunning bridal hair for years, which means that no matter what your favourite trend is or what your look is for your wedding day, we can help you achieve it. We have experience in a range of hair styles, from modern classics to truly natural brides and more sculptural looks – we can create exactly the hair you want on your wedding day. From colour consultations and management plans in the lead up to your day, to advice on products to condition and care for your hair, the team at Hair by Phd Bridal are at your service in the lead up to your wedding. If you would love to a team of wedding hair experts in Parramatta, Carlingford, Camden and everywhere in between, we would love to work with you! Get in touch via the Hair by Phd Bridal page and one of our stylists will be in touch.

DOLAN WARREN AWARDS 2018 – Hair by Phd.

The team from Hair by Phd were thrilled to once again be invited to create beautiful hair for the winners and attendees of the Dolan Warren Awards. Sarah Merzi, Cassandra Kavalieros, Jessica Pierovic and Monique Kalefeh from Hair by Phd in  Parramatta were our representatives at the Schwarzkopf Pro hair styling suite, alongside the team from Kokum Hair Skin and Body from Newcastle.

As we head into celebrity awards season, having just sat through the drama that was the Met Gala, this is a great chance to take stock of what the top formal looks are going to be for the 2018 season. The Dolan Warren Awards are no different, albiet possibly a little more practical than the Met Gala.

“The ladies will show us what dress they are wearing and they’ll show the makeup artist and the artist will then decide what makeup they’re wearing and let us know if they’re wearing any dominant jewellery features,” said Cassandra Kavalieros to Style Icons about the process. “Then we see what they’re comfortable doing if they would like it up or down, or recommend what we think would look good on them, and then just go from there.”

 

“We’ve been doing a lot of curls and waves, in different forms,” she continued. “We’ve done a few softer  waves and some more textured waves at the moment. We’re doing up style, just very nice and soft in the front and pulled back into a low bun. We’ve done a textured pony tail as well with some soft waves in the back, which is one of our favourite looks from the day.”

We can take away from the event that soft waves and textured curls will continue to dominate the formal hair scene, with sleek ponytails being a popular second choice. More formal updo’s seem to be taking their time in the shade, although there will always be ladies who love this more formal style.

Whether it is for a wedding, formal occasion, prom or dance, Hair by Phd are experts in creating truly beautiful, wearable hair styles for formal occasions. We believe that it is about creating styles that move with you and will last through the night while still looking absolutely stunning and special for your big occasion. For formal or bridal style bookings, email the Hair by Phd Bridal team on bridal@hairbyphd.com.au and we can assist you in creating some truly stunning hair for your next formal occasion.

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.

2018 is a big year for Hair by Phd, in September we turn 50 years young. Watch out for the celebrations.

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!

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!
