BEFORE YOU RE-DESIGN … ask the BIG question…The first big question is always – Do I need to restyle? The easy answer is that re-styling is a choice. Whether its a good choice depends on these 3 things.
- Have you out grown your style? A lot of consideration goes into our style and when we find a perfect match it’s usually one that works with us in all areas of our lifestyle. Its the one… yay!
The thing is that life moves on and so do we. Before we know it. Our hair isn’t as complementing as it used to be. You’re suddenly gooey eyed over someone else’s confidently worn, beautifully accenting tresses. Make a note. You’re ready to re-style.
- Do you re-evalute style regularly? Do you update your wardrobe each season? Either with a ruthlessly confident all change, or a subtle addition of key pieces?
Hair re-designs work in the same way you work your wardrobe. Hair being the consistent accessory to any look. Keeping your hair design in line with your wardrobe makes style transitions easier, more aligned and with choices readily accessible for any occassion. Discussing what you want from your hair with your stylist helps ensure you’re always enjoying what you wear from head to toe.
- Need a confidence boost? – Most of the time we take everyday challenges and trials-of-life in our stride. But after a while we can be left feeling drained and flat. Even the most confidence of us needs a little boost every now and then. And it’s almost impossible to walk out of a salon without a little added spring in your step.Not only is your hair softer, silkier and bouncier than ever, but you’ll also spend the next week graciously accepting compliments from your friends, family and co-workers.
- Image transformation time? – One of the top five reasons women change their hair is because they want to reinvent themselves. Fair call, really.
But there is a really useful notion here. The confidence boost together with expressing a different side of our personality has real impact on those around us and also how we feel about the person looking back at us in the mirror. The brain and eyes are still at core a very advanced self developing computer. And when you show someone a confident, beautiful person, the brain has no option but to accept what it sees. Now about that new job, or promotion or landing a fantastic new client that can transform your business. Maybe its a first date or new twist with a long term flame. Transforming style can be incredibly eye opening when expertly crafted.
For clarity…What is a Re-Design?Re-design hair services are about the SHAPE of your hair. Our r-e-design service looks at the hair cut and its complementary role with your colour, style and tone. We can pair the Re-design cutting service with a colour service to add real transformation to your total look. Ask for a colour consultation. These are free and can give you great ideas and some awesome do’s and font’s for your particular hair canvas.
The best RE-DESIGN’s accent your features differently, creating new expressions of personal style that really wow’s.
Natural looking style is easy to wear because it looks like its always been there….and the truth is, it has!
ABOUT RE-DESIGN SERVICE
The ConsultationDiscovering more about your style palette begins with a complimentary consultation. Here we discuss your ideas and experiences. Find out where you winning and where your challenges reside and from this create some ideas and options for you to consider. Alternatively you may already have some great ideas which we can help turn into reality for you. Here its best to bring images so we can see what you see and know we’re on the same page
The AnalysisWe also carry out hair analysis to understand the physical properties of your hair as well as style analysis to understand face shape, style preferences and lifestyle demands for your hair. At this point we can also perform colour analysis if required.
The ChoiceThe final choice is always yours. We are happy to recommend and many of our guests trust us implicitly to manage all their hair design aspects. We have a range of tools to show different features of hair design and each redesign is bespoke.
The secret that you and professional stylists know is that you have quite a few style options that work perfectly with your features and lifestyle. These provide the perfect starting point to update, refresh and re-imagine our look.
The Cleanse & PreparationMost of our cutting redesign services require wet hair. So when you are happy to proceed we first take the opportunity to refresh the hair with cleansing and also conditioning if required.
Eco FriendlyYou can relax in our comfortable fully upholstered reclining chairs where the shower-head has an environmentally friendly design that doubles water pressure while reducing the amount of water used. Powerful water stream combined with a small holes shower-plate act together as skin massage, offering a relaxing experience from start to finish. Thanks to the purifying qualities of the filter screens, the unique filtration-system helps to reduce chlorine and generates negative ions as water goes through, which softens the hair for a smoother end result.
RefreshmentsQuality continues even here. Choose from fresh ground coffee or a selection of teas and cool drinks. All served with our care and attention.
The Design & StyleWorking to the ideas and brief from your consultation your stylist creates the technical style elements onto wet hair while you relax. We always like to dry & style the hair to check the final look and refine. Its also a great opportunity for you to see and highlight any adjustments you would like to personalise the design further.
Complimentary After Care
- Style @ Home Plan
We know that you will be styling your hair more often than we do, so we will aim to provide a style that you can enjoy and get the best from. We can provide a home care plan that includes information on products, tools and advice when styling your own hair. We can also show you how to use styling tools and products more effectively with tips from salon professionals.
- Tweak – In – A – Week
Re visit the salon in a week for a style tweak. Hair is organic and and individual and may “settle” in a few days. This “settling” shows how the hair naturally holds the new styling. For most this creates a natural looking style. But sometimes a quick salon visit can make all the difference to enjoying your new style. Tweek-in-a-week is completely complementary.
- Fringe Trim
All our Cut & Style or Re-Design guests are welcome to pop in for complimentary fringe trims. If a fringe is part of your your styling these are easily maintained with quick complientary salon visit. Book in advance for convenience or you can try just popping in.
