Red Carpet Hair 2017

Last week Louise, Samantha, Sarah and Lemai from our Parramatta salon were asked to style the hair for all the WAGS from the A-League for the FFA awards night. The girls did an amazing job on all the hair, as you will see in the images posted below. It got us talking about how much the red carpet hairdo’s and celebrities do have an effect on fashion.

Autumn is a great time for a Hair Change!

After a long hot summer it’s been a nice change to get some cooler weather. I drove down to Thredbo over the Easter break and for those of you who have never been to the snowy’s in winter or any other time of the year it is a must do.

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.

My 5 tips on how to care for your Child’s hair!

 

screen-shot-2017-02-10-at-2-38-06-pm screen-shot-2017-02-10-at-2-36-25-pm

 

Holidays are over and we are now well into February. Scary how time goes by so quickly. Three weeks ago I was in the USA skiing in sub zero temperatures, hard to imagine being in that cold now with the heat wave we have been having. Summer can really take its toll on our hair – let alone our children’s hair. We tend to make sure we are looking after our hair by using good products to maintain our luscious locks, but are we doing the same for our children?

Dyson Hair Dryer vs Parlux 3200

It took many years of convincing by my wife to buy a Dyson Vacuum cleaner and was it worth it? Not really. Yes they look impressive they work just as well as any other cleaner but generally they are double the price. Value for money? I think not. Good marketing? Yes.

Will she convince me to spend $699 on the Dyson Hairdryer? Well now we are in my territory and I have this little comparison to put forward my case.

Great Hairdresser in Carlingford

Since the launch of our Carlingford salon in November 2014, the salon has gone from strength to strength, bringing in new apprentices, a host of new clients and a range of customers from all across the north western region, including areas like West Pennant Hills, North Rocks, Telopea, Ryde and Castle Hill. This shows that the work being produced by our team at Carlingford is absolutely top of their game, and today we want to showcase some of those amazing looks.

Above we have a blue under-colour, designed to give a real pop to this beautiful brunette hair. An edgier style that shows real individuality and creativity, the evenness of the blue colour here is a real highlight. Typically, blue tones are harder to hold in the hair, as they are from the complete opposite colour spectrum to natural hair colours, which are normally in the range of warm tones. carlingford-hairdresser2

This soft pastel, rose-gold balayage was achieved with our Schwarzkopf colours and really shows off our clients ivory skintone. This is a soft look for those not wanting to go as overly dramatic with their colour but still wanting to move away from natural tone.

This beautiful bruntte-to-red colour melt is one of the most popular looks from our Carlingford salon on Instagram. Beautiful Autumn colour tones, perfect for trans-seasonal dressing, and a soft blend between the two colours. This colour will age on the hair really nicely, so don’t be afraid to go Ombre.

And finally, our piece de resistance! From a very average and uneven blonde, to a metallic blue grey, this colour is going to be huge this winter, as an extension of the grey-hair trend we saw happening last year. Using Olaplex with this colour allowed us to achieve our clients desired look whilst maintaining the hairs condition. I’m sure you would agree the beautiful tones of this blue grey are just to die for!

So which is YOUR favourite look out of our Carlingford salon? Do you know anyone in the area that could really use a great hairdresser that understands what they are looking for? If so, please SHARE this post, we want to make as much beautiful hair as we can!

If  you haven’t done so already check out our Facebook page and like us to follow all that is happening at Hair by Phd. You can also follow us on InstagramPinterest and Google+.

Sarkis will be back from hist surgery in a few weeks, and we will be talking about the change in hair trends as we move into winter!

Sincerely,

Bec

Super Mums! Mother’s Day 2016

Mother’s Day is nearly upon us and it feels like a minute ago I wrote about Champion mums of today last Mother’s Day and Briony my wife winning the U19’s National Championships with her NSW netball team. What I didn’t mention is at the time she was pregnant with our fourth son. The little fella is now 5 months old sitting on my lap trying to grab my keyboard while I’m typing. Wow how life can change in twelve months.

I was in London in 2011 doing a hair cutting course at the famous Vidal Sassoon Academy when out came a male model dressed in a 3 piece suit with his hair cut into a tailored short, back, and sides and sporting a pretty awesome beard. The hairdressers from the Academy proceeded to let us know that this is where men’s fashion is heading. I at that stage was never a real fan of beards, liking them to 70’s sport personalities and porn stars.
