Adding wow to winter: Kudos Hairdressers

Winter can be a challenging time with its shorter days, lower temperatures, dismal weather and somewhat drab scenery, but then there’s the great stuff about winter, like meeting your friends for coffee in a cosy café, or shopping for something snuggly yet fabulous at your favourite mall, or best of all, planning a totally new hairstyle and colour to make your winter go from woe to wow!



The team at Kudos Hairdressers in Merivale are just the ladies to take your somewhat dull and dated hairstyle and give you the makeover you deserve. With two new senior stylists and one apprentice recently welcomed onto the team, owner of Kudos, Michelle Farmer, says the salon is buzzing. “Corrin, Michelle and Yana are well-known faces in the area, so it feels pretty much like we’re one big family in here now!”

Michelle is equally excited to share with clientele news of two of the latest products to have hit the shelves. First up is Insta Recharge; this is the one product every girl should have in her bathroom and purse. So much more than a root concealer, this little game-changer disguises regrowth, extends the life of grown-out highlights, achieves fuller-looking hair, and, with a sweep of its powder over patchy eyebrows – voila! You’ve suddenly got brow definition that would make even Jennifer Lopez jealous!

The other great product is Wella colour Koleston Perfect ME+. This is the first and only professional hair colour brand to feature breakthrough technologies – Pure Balance Technology and ME+. Pure Balance Technology is designed to minimise the formation of free radicals during the colour formation, which results in an even pure colour with natural depth, shine and significantly less hair damage, while the ME+ component reduces the risk of developing allergies to hair colour, yet also delivers a more balanced true-to-tone from root to tip.

With vibrant shades spanning the naturals, brunettes, reds and blondes, you’re going to set winter alight – wherever you go – just you and your crowning glory!

Dress, shoes, hat and handbag; it all comes together nicely. So what about your hair? Relax lovely ladies and book yourself an appointment at Kudos Hairdressers and let the magic begin!  Sip a coffee and browse a magazine as your scalp and hair are treated to a spa-like indulgence, courtesy of its new Wella Invigo range, or marvel at the texture and volume of your luxurious locks, thanks to latest Sebastian products – Sebastian Effortless.

Because no head of hair is the same, System Professional offers a consultation that includes a hair profile and diagnosis, followed by advice on which correct products to use; it’s the ultimate personalised hair-care programme. Another new product is the GHD Platinum +, the world’s first smart straightener that predicts your hair’s needs. The GHD Platinum + recognises the thickness of your hair and speed at which you are styling and adjusts the heat accordingly.

“It’s so intelligent it protects your hair – it’s very exciting!” salon owner Michelle Farmer says.  Michelle and her dedicated, fully qualified team pride themselves on their customer service.  “That’s our point of difference; here you’re always greeted with a smile and made to feel you’re our top priority. And now, with the newly revamped Merivale Mall, we’re saying to our clients, come on in and get a fabulous new colour and style, then cross the road and rock that look! You’ll feel a million dollars!”
