Winter Hair

Autumn Winter is a great time for fashion. Even though we seem to have had an endless summer there are signs of the weather turning. The colours on the trees are changing and those beautiful autumn colours are out and about.

It is also a great time of year for a style change. In this post I will share a few looks to give you some ideas on a change of hair colour or style. Also we will give you some information on how to keep your hair feeling fantastic during the cold winter months
It can be dramatic or as subtle as you like. I have also featured quite a few styles with fringes/bangs, this is a great way to change your whole appearance if a change of colour is not what you desire.

If you are interested in a change chat to your Hair by Phd stylist next time you visit on of our salons.

Winter Blondes

We generally relate blonde hair with spring summer; however there really are no rules. Below is a stunning blonde that will look great this time of the year and compliment Autumn winter fashion.

This is beautiful subtle highlighted look created by Ainsley at our Carlingford salon. A neutral blonde that can worn all year round. We can also make this a multi tone and add some darker colours in the mix.

This winter makeover was created by Bec at our Carlingford salon. Katie went blonde over the summer and wanted a change for the cooler season. As you can see the makeover has created a beautiful autumn winter brown which has added shine to Katie’s hair. It has also given Katie’s skin a beautiful glow.

Before the winter make over (below):

Cool Violet

This look was created by Selma at our Carlingford salon. Adding the cool violet tones gives this look a real point of difference. Fringes/bangs are great way to change you whole style add that edge to your look.

Hair Extensions

Lemai at our Camden salon created this gorgeous look on our client Jemma, by adding Seamless1 hair extensions to create colour, length add fullness. Hair extensions are a great way to achieve your hair goals quickly. Lemai also added a beautiful winter brown to Jemma’s hair to make the most of her summer Balayage.

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.

5 Tips for Beautiful Hair this Summer

A very hot summer like the one we are having can be disastrous on your hair. The sun’s rays are not only dangerous for your skin but can tear your hair to shreds. Combine this with other all the other elements we expose our hair to in summer time like chlorine, salt water and sunscreen amongst others, and your hair can really get fried. Below are my five tips on how to care for your hair this summer.

 

1. Prevention is better than the cure.

How many times have we heard this, but it is true. Cover your hair where possible. Hat’s, scarf’s, bandanna’s, whatever your look is – use it. Like sunscreen for your skin, this is by far the best option. For the men like myself who has a receding hairline or thinning hair up top, pack on the sunscreen. Nothing worse than a sunburnt head.

 

2. Sunscreens for your hair.

The key is using the right products to help protect your hair. Kerastase has a great range of sun care products called Soleil. There is a shampoo to cleanse your hair after being in a pool or the surf, a masque that re-hydrates your hair after being exposed to the elements, a CC Crème to moisturise and act as a sunscreen and a product called Aqua-Seal. This product is amazing to help really protect your hair leaving a UV coating on your for maximum protection. Aqua-Seal has to be shampooed out of the hair after use. Keep reading to see our special offer on the Soleil range below.

 

3. Brushing your hair.

Using a good quality brush, it is recommended that you brush your hair on a regular basis. Your scalp produces natural oils and brushing your hair distributes the oils through to the mid-lengths and ends. This also hydrates your hair and can act as a protective barrier from the elements.
 

4. Styling products.

Using styling tools can take its toll on your hair. Combine that with all that’s going on in summer, and you can potentially do serious damage to the condition of your hair. One of our favourite products at the moment to use before and after styling is Serum Therapiste by Kerastase. It is a dual action serum, which can be used on both wet and dry hair. It is designed to repair and seal any split ends and has up to 230°c heat protection against all your styling tools. It will instantly leave the hair with an amazingly smooth and shiny finish.
 

5. Visit your stylist.

Having your hair trimmed regularly is a must to keep your hair in shape and to stop it from splitting. We also have amazing in-salon treatments like Olaplex and Kerastase Rituals, which can really strengthen the condition and restore the integrity of your hair. We can also touch up your colour or tone any discolouration you might have had over the holidays. Your Hair by Phd stylist is the best person to talk to about any concerns you might have with your hair.

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.

One of the best things about living in Australia is our summer. We are blessed with beautiful beaches, parks and bushlands to explore. We are known for our outdoor lifestyle and envied by a lot of people around the world.

Yesterday I spent the day with my family and friends at the beautiful Clovelly Beach. People watching is a very interesting past time and in my case I always find myself looking at hair styles and all the interesting looks people wear, even at the beach. We truly live in an eclectic society, which makes for very interesting people watching and I believe makes Sydney a fantastic place to live in.

Summer does have its drawbacks, mainly on our skin and hair. We all have heard the continuous message of slip, slop, slap for protecting your skin. Although not life threatening, your hair needs to be protected as well. To maintain your beautiful locks you should think about what you do to protect it from the harsh rays of the sun and the elements like salt water, chlorine and wind.

These days there are lots of products on the market to help you do this. Below are my tips on how you can look after your hair in the summer.

  1. Cover up. Like your skin prevention is the best cure. Hats, hats, and more hats.
  2. Hair again is like your skin and tends to dry out when there is a lack of moisture. In-salon conditioning treatments are the best way to replace moisture for dehydrated hair. We have a range of these treatments at Hair by Phd to suit all hair types. We also give you a soothing head massage just for good measure.Screen Shot 2015-01-19 at 4.01.18 pm
  3. Sunscreen for your hair. By far in my opinion the best hair care range when it comes to UV protection for your hair is Soleil by Kerastase. Aqua Seal is the signature product in the range. This works exactly like a sunscreen and also protects your hair from chlorine and other elements, which may damage your hair. It also protects your colour from fading. Used in conjunction with the shampoo and masque you have your total summer hair care solution. All these products have built in UV filters for your ultimate protection. Ask your stylist next time you are at Hair by Phd to show you this fab range of sun care products.
  4. Regular Salon Visits. Having your hair trimmed regularly is one of the best ways to keep your hair in good shape. This stops your hair from splitting, keeping your hair looking fab. It also allows your stylist to monitor the condition of your hair and recommend the right care.

Enjoy the great Aussie summer and I hope these tips will be helpful in caring for your hair. If you have any questions regarding the above or any other issue you might have with your hair, call into Hair by Phd and let one of our highly trained experts look after you.
