Going grey gracefully: Vicki from V for Hair on embracing a change to grey

Beautifully styled grey hair is turning more heads than ever before in a growing trend towards natural beauty – enhanced with a little salon magic.

V for Hair

Master Stylist Vicki Ogden-O’Fee, of V for Hair and Beauty upstairs in Merivale Mall, says women often start to grey by 35, or even earlier – and many are now loving the look and making the most of the change.
It’s important to choose a shade that suits your skin. The grey colour palette in clothes fashion has never dated, so sultry hues of silver, sand, dove, iris and lilac for hair can also be incredibly feminine and flattering.
Like any change in hair colour or style, it’s a transition, so planning ahead for special occasions is vital. V for Hair and Beauty’s stylists offer a complimentary consultation and may suggest going lighter with a base colour, highlights, age-blend colours to soften obvious lines, or weaving in lowlights for darker hair.

The vibe is chill, the feeling is restorative and the products are eco friendly at the two Soulstyle Organic Hair Salons owned and operated by Deanna and Greg Campbell.

Blending authenticity with style to bring you the uplifting but calming experience that every hair appointment should be. Locally roasted Switch Organic espresso is brewed for you by expert barista Greg, including Rangiora’s Claridges Herbal tea range that anyone passing by can come in and enjoy.
The South New Brighton salon came first, and Lyttelton is the latest lucky community to get a soul boost. Deanna and Greg love the feeling of being a part of the city coming back to life, growing and regenerating. They’re on a mission to help retain our heritage: both salons are located in older buildings stuffed with character, with the Lyttelton salon housed in an original 1880’s building. Greg and Deanna love the community feel of the port and are excited to be one of the many new businesses in Lyttelton.
All the products are organic/natural, ammonia free, mineral and plant based, and locally sourced where possible. With 100 percent grey coverage and stunning fashion colours, you are in safe hands with these talented stylists.

An autumnal shake up: transforming your hair with Carla and the team at Hair Art & Beauty

Planning a hair shake-up? Need some inspiration from professionals around the world? H&B has been taking notes on the colour trends for autumn 2018 and is ready to help you transform your locks!

With leaves changing and temperatures dropping, red and copper-based colours are making their comeback. The latest autumn trends point towards burgundy and purple-based reds being the must-have. With Pantone’s Colour of the Year being announced as Ultraviolet, many homages to this within the hair industry have been seen already. A dash of purple in a red or brown colour can give a striking result.
With moisture in the air, cold temperatures creeping in and heaters blasting in the office, you may feel a little lacklustre. The Keratin Blowout is an essential treatment for anyone struggling with frizz, fluff, or unmanageable hair. It leaves your hair significantly smoother for up to eight weeks, making blow-drying and flat-ironing a breeze. If done immediately following a colour service, Keratin Blowout will lock in your colour, helping it to look fresh for longer.
Along with its superstar stylists, H&B has beauticians armed with the best and brightest technology. The new Ultraceuticals Sonophoresis service is the perfect add-on to a facial. Using ultrasonic vibrations, it allows your skin to absorb the products used in your facial more efficiently. Pop into H&B now to get a glimpse of the day spa progress – opening this year!

Transitioning to grey hair: trying the grey trend with Salon E

Grey hair is on trend right now so there has never been a better time to transition from your permanent coloured hair.

Salon E

 

Going grey is a big decision and many, if not most, women freely admit they’re afraid of looking old or that people will treat them differently because of their salt-and-pepper tresses.
When going grey, you need to consider if you want to blend it subtly or fully embrace it.
The good news is, there are many ways Salon E can make the transition an easier one. With Schwarzkopf Professional’s new Absolutes range with Silver White Tonal Refiner, the talented team can eliminate the six-weekly regrowth problem and transition clients close to their natural grey hair.
Now there is no need to cut your hair to a very short length in order to make that change. Call Salon E now to arrange a consultation.

Pegasus Town fashionable favourite: TAD Design’s hidden treasures include a beautician called Suzie and a hairdresser by the name of Maddie

Located in Pegasus Town, TAD Design’s striking concept store is worthy to be snapped by any Instagram user as it brings together fashion and beauty services in an inviting, relaxing and serene environment.

So far in its mere two-year existence, owners Tracey and Daniel have also opened TAD fashion in Northlands Mall, along with an online store which has drawn a devoted clientele.
“The Pegasus store is a haven where people can come and leave their troubles at the door,” Tracey says.
“Come into a space full of unique pieces from around the world or pamper yourself in the hair salon and beauty room.”
If you can peel your eyes away from the luxurious array of fashion labels which include Mooi, Ministry of Style, One Teaspoon and Stella & Gemma, the store spans to a hidden hair salon and cosy beauty room where you will find hairdresser, Maddie and beautician, Suzie.
Suzie is the latest member of the TAD team and would like to offer clients a facial special – The Signature Facelift. “This facial, suitable for all skin types, has a beautiful blend of Vitamin C and fruit enzymes to energise and detox the face,” Suzie says.
“It helps with hydration, as in winter our skin becomes drier. Vitamin C also helps with collagen production, which helps slow down the signs of aging. This facial is a great way to maintain and replenish your skin, whilst taking some time out for yourself.”
TAD Design in Pegasus Town is offering this facial special for $70 (usually $120) until the end of April, 2018. To make a booking, phone 0800 823 337. Follow TADpegasus on Facebook

Earth Organic Hairdressing

Eco-styling: Earth Organic Hairdressing aims to keep hair AND the planet beautiful

Creating beautiful hair in a vibrant, welcoming oasis on High Street, Earth Organic Hairdressing is an eco-friendly salon with a focus on sustainability. “Our aim was to have as small a footprint as possible,” says owner, Traci Aylmer.

From the styling stations to the skirting boards, the salon furnishings were beautifully handcrafted by Traci’s husband Ollie, using recycled timber from earthquake-damaged buildings. The carefully selected organic product ranges and hair colours consist of Angel Du Provence, De Lorenzo and Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi collection. “We wanted to keep everything authentic to the image we are creating and really care what goes into the products we use.”

Traci hired talented Kiwi artist Flox to paint the walls with stunning botanicals – an array of beautiful natural properties used in the hair products, such as lavender, ginger, aloe vera and mint.

Originally from Brighton, England, Traci has been in the industry her entire life. She fell in love with New Zealand five years ago when travelling with her family and opened Earth Organic in December last year. Through word of mouth referrals, Traci’s clientele grew so quickly she now leads a team of three to keep up with demand – two experienced senior stylists, Caitlyn and Hannah, and a talented apprentice, Alice. “My staff are wonderful and we all have a strong commitment to keeping up with the latest trends and techniques.”
