Long Hair Colour Ideas

Here are some of our favourite long hair colour ideas
Burnt copper is a great look if you have the right skin type
Reds mixed with Violets are definitely hot
Ash and Lilac blonde's are stunning if you are open minded
and of course the smudged though the ends look is great and your re-growth won't be obvious
as it grows out.....very low maintenance
Check out the texture of these models hair,  very natural and fluffy...the undone look
Fringes are back in again for 2012

Mission Weekend

Hello Kelly here
We had a fantastic day at the salon on Saturday
A beautiful young lady set up her sound system outside the salon
and when she started to sing....we were all blown away!
She has the most amazing opera voice and sang songs from Cats, Phantom of the Opera and
other musicals
within 5minutes of her starting to sing,  she had gathered a huge audience!
Very exciting to see,  I even had a moment in between clients to go watch.
Then straight after work I went to the mission concert and braved the rain to watch Rod Stewart
Awsome concert!!

We hope you all had a great weekend aswell

How are all you braidiacts!
Excuse the pun!!

But with ball season fast approaching.
And plans starting for all the brides to be come next summer!
Long gone are the tight braids, that look and feel like your hair is being tugged from your scalp!
Braids can still be tight, and back
But mostly worse lose and messy currently!
Drop plating and fish tail is super in!!
And surprising easy to achive!!

They are fun, and can step the look up, that extra notch!
Hairdressers have been having heaps of fun with these!!

So, start planing your ball or wedding hair, and why not look into some sort of braid
to stamp that big YOU on your look.

come in, and ask with your next style how to achive simple braids at home.
It will take about 5minutes to show you.
and about 20 minutes of practise in the mirror.
That casual BBQ never looked so good....

Any way,
time to make like a tree
and leaf..
(I am on fire with these puns!)

till next time!
bye bye.
