Often you read about all the top hair salons in Sydney being exclusively in the City and surrounding suburbs. A lot of the time this is true, however even if I do say so myself, our staff at Hair by Phd do our best to provide an excellent standard in hairdressing for all our clients. A standard that rivals the city salons.

I am going to use the word cure here very cautiously here. If there was a cure for hair loss, believe me we would all know about it.
There are a lot of scams out there when it comes to selling hair loss cures. I get asked a lot about thinning hair especially from male clients and the scammers out there prey on peoples vanity.
It is hard to believe that it is nearing the end of another HSC year. Most Year 12 students would have now graduated and are busily studying for the big exams. The next big thing on the calendar is the formal. It’s great to have something exciting like this to look forward to after finishing your schooling years.
So, is the dress organised? How about the car, the after party, hair and make up? Well that’s where Hair by Phd comes in! Read on to see our hair and makeup package we have organised just for you.
Are you wearing your hair up or down? Do you want something fairly standard or are you going to steal the show? Below are some styling ideas that could work for you.
Wearing your hair long and luscious
As seen on our Facebook and Pinterest pages, wearing formal hair down can look effective. The look has the ability to look hot, sexy and very feminine. Think about your dress and how your hair is going to suit you best. Your hair should compliment what you are wearing and visa versa.
Sweeping your hair up and elegant
For such a special occasion this would be my recommendation. Again, it depends on what you are wearing and suitability but there is something special about dressing up and having your hair styled in an elegant up do. Check out some of the styles above that our team have created.
At Hair by Phd we realise that is a very special time of your life and we would love to make you look and feel special on your formal day. We have a wonderfully talented make up artist in Leanne Baxter who has worked extensively with MAC cosmetics. Leanne has been doing makeup for Hair by Phd clients for many years now with beautiful results.
Our talented team of hairstylists are ready to show you how they can make you hair look spectacular on your special day. Louise heads the team with many years of experience including styling Andrea Bocelli’s lead vocalists Maria Aleida (pictured above) hair at his big Sydney show at All Phones Arena. Louise also used clip-in hair extensions to add volume and length. Clip-in extensions are available at Hair by Phd.
Excitedly, our team have also been asked by Schwarzkopf to style the WAGS ( wives and girlfriends) hair next week at the NRL Dally M Awards. Look out for some great styles!
We have created an exclusive Formal Hair and Makeup Package, just for this occasion. Our package includes a style and make-up consultation, Make-up with Leanne Baxter and hair styled by the team at Hair by Phd. We will also include a $25 voucher to use on your next visit to Hair by Phd for any full priced hair service. All for $249.00*
To make a booking you can give us a call on (02) 9635 4721 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Be quick as this is a very busy time and we would hate for you to miss out on a very special package. If you are not sure what you would like to have done, come in to the salon and have a chat to one of our stylists, I’m sure they can help you choose a look that will have everyone turning heads.
Look forward to seeing you in our salon soon.

We often relate pastel colours in hair as being “out there”. Pink has been wearing pastel pink in her hair for many years. Like all other fashions they start out being very dramatic and avant garde and as the look becomes more commercial it also becomes less dramatic. It’s funny when there is a new fashion or look in the pipeline people look at it and cringe. By the time the look has become mainstream, everyone is wearing it. Well guess what, pastels are going to be huge this spring and summer.
Have a look at who is already wearing pastels; Jennifer Hawkins is looking pretty in pink with some pastel pink through her locks. I think she would look great with any colour but that’s just my opinion. Also it’s great to see Jessica Rowe with a change of colour. Her pastel hair, I think, looks amazing.
At Hair by Phd we have been playing around with colours to produce some fantastic tones. Last week we had Damien Rayner one of Sydney’s if not Australia’s top colourist come in and do a training session with the team. We had a couple of girls have some pastel colours put through their hair and the results where amazing. Check out the two make-overs below.
Damien also worked with the team on some fantastic high-lighting techniques creating some amazing looks combining balayage and foiling together. We also transformed one of our models who had been colouring her hair black for about 3 years. We did some stunning highlights through her hair and we are going to work on getting her lighter whilst keep the integrity of her hair condition in tact.
The beauty of pastel colours there is such a wide variety of colours to choose from. You can have small subtle strands put in or be as bold as you would like to be. It also comes in hair chalk which you can apply to your hair for a special occasion and it just washes out.
So if you would like to have some fun this spring summer with pastel colours or have just feel like having a change of colour, what better time to do so than this spring. The team are ready and roaring to go, equipped with some really exciting ideas and techniques. Talk to your stylist next time you are in the salon. Call us on (02) 9635 4721 or email us on email@example.com to make an appointment.
If you haven’t been to Hair by Phd before go to our website and request a $25 new client gift voucher we would love to see you in our salon.
Look forward to seeing you in the salon soon.

This is the big question asked when our clients are wanting to purchase a styling iron. Many years ago when GHD came on the scene, they revolutionised the straightening iron. They introduced us to ceramic plates and we learnt to curl hair with the GHD. They are still known as GHD curls today, however the look can be achieved with other irons on the market.
As a stylist GHD was the go, above all else because of the result we were achieving for our clients. The hair was smooth and shiny and the irons just glided through the hair with ease, we as well as our clients were creating wearable and fashionable looks in the salon and at home.
Then GHD I believe got greedy. They used to be exclusively sold through salons and they hand picked and chose which salons they wanted to retail them, mainly targeting upmarket salons who used and promoted their irons. I am pleased to say Hair by Phd was one of those salons.
GHD was taken over by another company and they decided to go mass market. In order to do so they started manufacturing out of China instead of Korea. I don’t have a problem with that if the quality is still there. Guess what, it wasn’t. If you still have an older model GHD, and have tried the new model you will be able to tell the difference. All of a sudden we went from one returned iron in three years to multiple returns in a short space of time. The performance was just not the same anymore. You get what you pay for!
So in comes Cloud Nine, the rumour within the industry was that there was a new player in the styling iron market. Hairdressers were raving about this new iron that had just come out. It turns out that Cloud Nine are produced in the same factory in Korea where GHD used to be produced and with new technology and the introduction of temperature controls we were sold. Again it is about performance and being able to use and recommend only the best to our clients, not where the item is manufactured. In my professional opinion Cloud Nine are hands down the best styling iron on the market and that’s why we use them at Hair by Phd.
Not only do the styling irons come in three different sizes like the GHD they have amazing styling wands as well. The wands allow you to create amazing curls that look like a stylist has just done your hair.
How would you like to road test a Cloud Nine styling iron? In August Hair by Phd in conjunction with Cloud Nine are holding A Girls Night Out. Join us for a night where you will see the Cloud Nine Artist Director Teneile Robinson showing us her tricks of the trade as long as spending time with your favourite Hair by Phd Stylist, while sipping on sparkling wine. You will see all the Cloud Nine irons in action and you will be able to have a play. For all details and information on how to reserve a spot, click on the link below. We look forward to seeing you at our event.
