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.

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.

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 love my mummy because she reads to me and lies down next to me. She is also a very good coach and is very kind.”

This is the answer I got from my six year old Sam when I asked him what he loves about mummy. Charlie his twin brother says that

“She is good at netball; she is kind to me and very loving.”

What does your Mum mean to you?

Every year at this time of the year we are reminded about what our mums mean to us. I would have to say that mums play a massive roll in all our lives. They should be rewarded everyday as I wrote in my post last year. Should everyday be Mother’s Day? You can read that post by clicking here.

Let’s celebrate our mums this Mother’s Day and make a real fuss over them. At Hair by Phd we are going to do exactly that. The sparkling wine will be flowing for the whole week leading up to Mother’s Day and thanks to the girls at Nailtech Training and Supplies we will be giving everyone in the salon a complimentary soothing hand massage and/or manicure.

P.S. I hope you enjoyed my ‘Champion Mums of Today” post last week. The feedback and comments are very much appreciated. I think I accumulated a few brownie points with that post. I saw Briony crying when she was reading it. If you missed out on it you can read it by clicking here.

Champion Mums of Today

This time last year approaching Mother’s Day I wrote about our wonderful mums over 50 and the wonderful influence they have over us. You can read that post again, just click here.


I would love to share with you the story of one of the most amazing mums in my life. That’s my wife Briony. Briony is definitely a new age mum. When I first met her she had just made the squad for the Sydney Swifts Netball team, now known as the NSW Swifts. She was an amazing netballer and very committed and passionate about the sport. She had a very successful career with the Swifts winning two National titles in the five years she played with them.
