Start your New Year with a FREE Olaplex Treatment

Hair by Phd is starting the New Year off with a great Olaplex offer.  You can get an Olaplex in-salon treatment for FREE, valued at $80.

Olaplex  has become a real game-changer in the hairdressing industry. It’s allowed hairdressers to do things to hair never thought possible, like amazing colour makeovers, including creating stunning blonde shades from dark hair colours, without the damage. We wrote about it here.

 

The treatment’s abilities are incredible. If used correctly, Olaplex repairs hair to its original condition, before, during and after chemical hair services by restoring the hair internally to its original state. This is the perfect solution for clients who want complete colour transformations, but also really makes a huge difference to your hair if you’re simply adding highlights. It can be an incredible stand-alone treatment that really changes the condition of your hair.

 

At Hair by Phd we are an approved stockist of Olaplex and our team has been trained by the experts to ensure the correct use of the treatment. Many hair care companies have tried to imitate the product but let me tell you there is only one Olaplex. Be very careful about false claims, I have heard stories where people are claiming to use Olaplex yet using a product imitation.

 

If you haven’t tried Olaplex and you are thinking of having a colour done over the summer, an Olaplex treatment with your colour is a must. Summer can take its toll on your hair –  but add in a colour service as well, and it can jeopardise your hair’s condition. Using Olaplex will leave your hair feeling like it has never felt before.

 

Olaplex has other products to compliment your in-salon treatment. Olaplex No. 3, is a treatment with a small dose of the Olaplex ingredient in it to maintain your condition at home. Olaplex also recently released the Shampoo Olaplex No. 4 and Conditioner Olaplex No. 5. Using all the three products after your in-salon colour treatment will guarantee you hair will be in optimum condition between your salon visits.

 

Hair by Phd introduces our Olaplex January Offer. This is available at our three locations, Camden, Carlingford and Parramatta.

Purchase Olaplex No. 3 Treatment, Olaplex No. 4 Shampoo and Olaplex No. 5 Conditioner through our Hair by Phd online shop and you will receive an in-salon Olaplex treatment FREE*, valued at $80, with any colour service.

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.

Spring is generally a time when we will consider many changes. A reminder that summer is coming, we start to think about heading back to the gym, re-evaluating our wardrobe or maybe even a hair colour change. Changing your hair colour can be simple but it also can be very complex.

A CONVERSATION ABOUT BALAYAGE

 

I recently sat down and had a chat with colourist extraordinaire Damien Rayner. We are organising to have Damien in our salon very shortly to do some more colour training with the team and the subject of Balayage came up. I’ve been hairdressing for over 30 years now and Balayage would have to be the longest lasting colour look in that time.

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.

carlingford-hairdresser

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.
carlingford-hairdresser3

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.

carlingford-hairdresser4
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

Director Hair by Phd Carlingford

Have You Tried Olaplex Yet?

I was going to do a post on the hair at the Oscars but the hair, like last year, was so un-inspirational I thought I would give it a miss. The majority of the celebrities looked like they were just going out to dinner on a Saturday night with friends. For such a massive Hollywood function the hair generally was very disappointing.

Instead I would like to do a post on the hottest hair product on the market at the moment, this would have to be Olaplex. I did a couple of posts on this product last year (which you can read here and here), and just had to do another one to share with you what an awesome product this is.

Olaplex – Beware of Imitations
Screen shot 2015-09-30 at 7.49.25 PM

A beautiful soft peachy pink, possible thanks to Olaplex.

As I mentioned in my August post What is Olaplex? Every now and then a product comes on the market that has a massive impact on the Hair industry. When this happens everyone wants to get on the bandwagon and get a piece of the action.

This is where imitations come into the game. Now I’m not saying that any of these imitations are no good, they can actually be just as good if not better. There are however the ones that say their product can do what the original can do but doesn’t live up to that promise.

WHAT IS OLAPLEX?
olaplex-3 olaplex-5 olaplex-9

Every now and then there comes a product in the hairdressing industry that really changes the industry and the way we do things as hairdressers dramatically. Some that come to mind are GHD irons, and Keratin Smoothing Treatments.

The next big thing in the hairdressing industry I think is going to be Olaplex. What is Olaplex I hear you ask? Olaplex is an additive we can put into our colour formulations or treat your hair with that allow us as hairdressers to stretch the boundaries in colouring hair. It basically allows us to colour hair as an example from very dark to very light without damaging the hair.
