Cure your winter hair blues: GM Hair Design

Is your hair feeling dehydrated? Unloved? With split ends, or lacks lustre and you are struggling to style it? You might just need a hair detox.


GM Hair Design is your place for addressing winter hair blues, with its Hair Detox Treatment offer to address 25 different hair issues.

For just $120, it lasts up to 32 shampoos and the paraben and sulphate free treatment uses 100 percent natural keratin, which penetrates the hair follicle to heal the hair from the inside out.

Salon co-owners Mike and Glynis Hamel say: “This miracle treatment leaves you with 80 percent less breakage, 97 percent improvement in shine, 83 percent boost in colour symmetry, and 78 percent better colour.

“It is a detangler, repairs dry damaged hair, smooths and softens, shines, is anti-humidity, colour protection, is anti-pollution, reduces split ends, strengthens fragile hair, gives volume, contains a UV filter, offers protection from thermal styling, controls moisture retention, and evens porous hair.

“It is anti-static, restores lustre, makes blow drying faster and easier, improves elasticity, seals the cuticle, is paraben free, sulphate free, cruelty free, and is altogether an advanced and light weight treatment.”

If you can’t make it to the salon, try GM’s own Christchurch-made environmentally friendly products, Mike’s Hair Care.

Wet hair and apply MHC Conditioner to mid lengths and ends of hair and leave in; rinse out with MHC Shampoo; apply MHC conditioner; rinse out and towel dry; apply MHC styling products.

Silver & Sexy: V For Hair and Beauty

Look beautiful and feel radiant, silver and sexy!



The V For Hair and Beauty team has all the latest techniques and products to make embracing your grey easy, Master Stylist Vicki Ogden-O’Fee says. “You don’t need or want flat, dull grey hair. We can give you a shimmering sexy blonde or cool iris sparkle, or many more to embrace the grey.”

You don’t want to live at your hairdressers, so rather than leaving a harsh regrowth line, their techniques will disguise new growth with a soft, flattering look. “We understand that as your grey hair comes in you still want to look great. A great cut also plays a big part in this; you want a cut that enhances your features.”

Head in for a complimentary consultation with one of their specialists in going grey gracefully. After all, V For Hair and Beauty ‘gets’ grey hair and takes great pride in making ladies feel beautiful.
