Why we use Pravana colour...

Today we all attended an amazing colour course, and the following is the reason why we use pravana colour.....

The name Pravana is derived from an ancient Sanskrit phrase, which translates to The Source of All Things. Pravana does serve as the source of all things by providing a full and complete range of innovative hair care, hair color, styling, and texturizing products to address virtually every beauty need.

Pravana is dedicated to a caring and responsible approach to beauty.

Pravana products are free of parabens, sulfites, cocamide DEA, formaldehyde, phthalates, and many other ingredients commonly used in cosmetic products but known to be harmful to users or the environment.

Pravana is a company that believes in giving back. Each year Pravana is a participant in Breast Cancer Awareness month and is dedicated to working hand-in-hand with salons in a wide-range of charitable events and programs such as the Ronald McDonald house the Beauty Bus Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides at-home or in-hospital beauty services to cancer patients who cannot leave their homes or hospitals to receive personal care services

Loosen up!

A few weeks ago, our team did a workshop called
"Loosen up"
A course in textured haircutting.
Darren Jones from Canberra was the host, he was amazing!!
We learnt the foundations of a textured haircut.
 How to do a modern long layered haircut, and also short texturised cutting.
We all walked away so inspired and busting to get back into the salon, to test out our new techniques.
We cut hair everyday and sometimes we get in the pattern of doing similar cutting techniques on our clients, not anymore!!
 We have fresh ideas, and are looking forward to seeing you soon. Lisa x

Miss Ruby

A few of my clients have been asking how Ruby is?
She is wonderful, nearly 14 months old and is so much fun to be around.
I thought I'd share a cute photo with you.....

Our Salon has evolved!

We are pleased to announce that we now only use and recommend premium haircare free of questionable chemicals used in many mainstream cosmetics and haircare products.
Our move has been made to address health and safety concerns for our business, our staff and most importantly for the wellbeing of our valued customers.
All the products that we use, and recommend are free from......
PARABENS - cheap preservatives that mimic oestrogen, linked to endocrine disruption.
SULPHATES - harsh detergents that damage the cuticle and cause skin irritation.
SODIUM CHLORIDE - salt like bulking agents used to give a more luxurious texture to creams and lotions, and also known for their drying, corrosive properties.
Rest assured that our products are not only safer to use, but also provide superior performance and results over ordinary products.
If you would like us to recommend the right products for you, on your next visit please speak to one of our salon staff members.
Thank you Lisa
