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.

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.

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.

HAIR BY PHD REAL BRIDES – Melissa

There really is nothing more beautiful than a bride on her wedding day. The glow of the moment, the hours of prep that go into the wedding day, it all comes together in a stunning package that is The Bride.

Melissa approached our team at Hair by Phd Bridal to create a very simple, clean look for her and her three beautiful bridesmaids for her wedding in September. With bold brunette locks on all the girls, she wanted to choose a series of styles that would suit them all and be elegant and easy to wear on the day. Something special and different to how the girls would normally do their hair, and we were more than happy to oblige.

A Mother’s Love is one that does not stop giving

My mum once told me that you don’t start growing old until you lose your mum. I am very blessed to still have my mum and could never imagine life without her.  I saw an interview with Kelly Rowland on 60 Minutes on the weekend, she spoke about losing her mum recently and the devastating effect it had on her. A bond between mother and child is definitely like no other.

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!

Kerastase Has Stood the Test of Time

It was way back in 1990 when I bought my first salon in Hurstville, that I was introduced to a product called Kerastase. Kerastase products have been around since 1964 and really are the pinnacle of all hair products. They stand for quality, luxury and beautiful hair.
