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.
