HeadHunters Hits Melbourne for Hair Expo 2016

They say all good things must come to an end and Hair Expo 2016 is definitely one of them, but we are still reminiscing about that inspiring weekend in Melbourne. Hair Expo 2016 was packed full of educational classes, stunning runway events and plenty of stores to purchase new tools of the trade. We definitely shopped up a storm!

A stand out moment for us, (especially for Jo) was meeting hair stylist celebrity, Guy Tang who wowed us all with this rainbow hair-based class for his Olaplex World Tour. Our girl Jo has been following Guy Tang on Instagram for a while now and was just a tad excited. We can’t forget the awesome night events, plenty of dancing and partying went on as we celebrated a successful, insightful weekend at Hair Expo.

The countdown is now on until Hair Expo 2017!

2. Slicked Back

This look definitely isn’t for the faint hearted or the wallflowers. It puts your face on full display showing off all the angles. This adds an instant edge to your gala look and we love this sleek style. The slicked back look is also great for those ladies who find their straight hair just doesn’t hold curls, so instead of fighting it, work with it and embrace your polished look.

3. Loose Ballerina Buns

This look proved very popular during the Cannes Film Festival and we can see why! Polished and refined without that tight slicked back look. The great thing about this look is that it really finishes off your look and really draws the attention to your face. We recommend this style for high-neck dresses and low backs for a dramatic finish.

4. Glamorous Curls

Big loose glamour curls. A look that really transcends time, nothing screams luxury and femininity more than this style. This look suits most face shapes making it a safe option for those wanting to wear their hair down, but not straight. We really love this soft look for this time of year.

5. Low Messy Bun 

The low messy bun is a favourite of ours at Headhunters, it looks great on everyone and really frames your face and draws the attention to your collar bones. A great tup is to pull your low messy bun into a tight twist, adding a touch of difference to your look. An added bonus of this style is the longer the night goes on, the better your hair will look, more wispy pieces falling over the night add to the overall appeal.

 

 

 

 

Loose braid

6. Loose Braid

Perfect for all of you low maintenance ladies wanting that structured look without having a bun. Braids are so on trend and this style allows for you to keep that loose swept look around the face, while also keeping things looking polished and elegant in the back. Just what you need to finish a perfect Gala dinner look.

Our secrets to achieving and maintaining healthy blonde hair

It’s no secret that here at HeadHunters Hair Studio, we love a good blonde, because after all blondes do have more fun (We still love you brunettes)! However, with all this fun to be had there needs to be a balance between letting loose and keeping those golden locks in tip top shape. So, we are giving away a few of our secrets to achieving and maintaining beautiful, healthy blonde locks!

1. Olaplex

If you haven’t heard about Olaplex, you are seriously missing out. Olaplex is some pretty impressive stuff! Here at the studio, it is often our go-to product for achieving healthy blonde hair. You may have heard of Olaplex from the Kardashians who swear by this product when they went from dark to light. How Olaplex works is it helps to lighten the hair without damaging it on the way and works to reconnect broken bonds in the hair shaft making hair less likely to be damaged during the lightening process.

So, if you’re looking to lighten your locks without the fear of damaging your hair, ask us about our olaplex treatments. You even get the added benefit of having a take home version to keep your blonde locks looking salon fresh.

2. Toners

A serious necessity for anyone not wanting brassy blonde hair! Not only will our hairstylists add a toner when they colour your hair, but we also have a range of fab products in the studio that you can take home to use in between your appointments to keep your blonde hair toned and beautiful.

3. Minimise Heat Styling

We always recommend this to our clients, no matter what hair colour, however especially for someone who has just gone blonde from previously having dark hair. Blonde hair can be more stressed than regular coloured hair due to bleaching processes. In turn it leads to the hair being more likely to suffer from breakages and damages.

In order to reduce this and to keep your hair strong, we recommend minimizing your use of hairdryers and straighteners. If you’ve been to us, your style shouldn’t need much attention. By reducing your heat styling to only 2-3 sessions per week, you’ll be saving your hair a whole lot of stress and helping maintain its lush condition. Another great way to protect your hair from the heat is investing in a really good heat production product. We recommend Damage Manager by Kevin.Murphy.

4. Get Dirty

Did you know that over washing your hair could cause damage? Washing your hair too often strips hair of natural oils and moisturisers that are needed for naturally healthy hair. So, our advice – get dirty! Stop washing your hair so often and try to only give it a really good clean twice a week. For all those in-between washing, use some dry shampoo to freshen up your hair and keep it looking gorgeous.

5. Deep Moisturising Treatments

If you do one thing, do this! Invest in a deep moisturising product that you can use in between appointments. By applying a treatment to your blonde locks once a week you’ll be able to replenish the hair and leave it feeling silky smooth. Our go-to product at HeadHunters is the Kevin Murphy take home treatments to keep our hair looking healthy and soft, because who doesn’t want lush looking hair?

Of course, these aren’t all our secrets because after all, we can’t give away our best secret for achieving blonde hair. I can tell you that it does have something to do with our awesome team of stylists. So, call (08) 9380 6665 to book your appointment and achieve those gorgeous blonde locks that we all love.

Our Favourite 2016 Winter Hair Trends

Winter is slowly creeping up on us here in sunny Perth (where we never really get a proper winter). While it may seem like the world is ending with this cold seasonal change, we here at HeadHunters are always excited for a season change. Winter is such a fun time to play around with the cut and colour of your hair. Not only that, but the added bonus of hair accessories (hello, hats). Looking for some inspiration? We have compiled a list of our favourite 2016 winter hair trends, helping us look forward to winter.

 

Image1

 

1. The Lob

By far one of the major hair trends we are currently crushing on as we head into the winter months. It’s a super versatile look that make be worn messy or slickly styled. This look is very low maintenance too, so its perfect for those who are time poor. A sneaky trick for those who have long hair and don’t want to commit too the chop… come in and get some layers cut into your long hair for a shorter appearance without totally losing the length.

2. Messy Waves

This is perfect for those winter rainy days. Messy wave are an all year favourite, but especially in winter when the rain can cause havoc on straight hair. We particularly love this look on mid length locks in a variety of colours. We recommend achieving this look by sectioning the hair into pieces and lightly heat styling into position. Finish off with the ‘Hair Resort’ by Kevin Murphy to achieve a more textured look.

3. Tonal Blondes

Blondes of all colours are majorly in this winter. We love creamy blondes this winter to give a clean, fresh look. However, if creamy blonde isn’t your thing try for a warmer blonde, think sunny like Gigi Hadid. This colour is also low maintenance and retains shine keeping it looking healthy and super luscious.

4. Chocolate Locks

Brunette has a serious moment during the winter months. We see a lot of regular clients come in this time of year to go darker for winter to reflect the changing season. This winter, expect to see warm and cool chocolate brown shades of hair. Think when Gigi went brown for cooler colours and Miranda Kerr for those warmer tones. Finally, the best part about these colours? The ease of changing between the warmer and cooler shades just makes it impossible not to try both during winter for a little mid season change.

5. Accessories

Winter equals hats, beanies, scarfs and warming headbands. It’s an absolute playground of ideas and all of the options are pretty great on extra windy days. Firstly hats, they look great with messy waves or even some cute braids, instant cool factor for a weekend style. Beanies? Well when it’s extra cold outside we all like to loose braid our hair into two parts and pop something cosy on top. Looks effortless and keeps you warm.

From the office to the bar… Our effortlessly cool hair inspiration

So, it’s Friday afternoon in the office. Chances are, you’ve got plans for Friday night and if you’re already looking great, why go home and change? Here at HeadHunters, we love a good night out as a team and are dishing out some of our tips on how to get hair that will go from the office to evening drinks.

1.The Low Bun

A classic and such an easy option for an early start. We love this one, it’s super versatile and can be done loose and wispy for a care free look or alternatively slicked back for a more polished look.

2. The Sleek Ponytail

Ponytails are having a huge moment right now and we love it. This one is particularly great for ladies with longer hair. Think about a sleek, straight ponytail with height, slicked back without fly always. If that seems a little too straight edge for you, try adding some think curls through the length of the ponytail, like Queen B.

3. The Blow Dry

Sounds pretty boring, but its not. A good blow dry will not only carry it’s body into the night, but you’ll possibly get a second day out of it too. Think loose flicks and curls all over. If you are in Subiaco on a Friday, we have an ongoing promotion, Blow Dry Fridays, which includes a shampoo and blow dry for $49! Add extra shine to your hair with one of our express treatments for an extra $15. You will be ready for a night on the town in an instant.

4. Sleek and Straight

Straight hair is going to be very on trend over the winter months. It’s easy to achieve and it’s polished. This makes it perfect to take you from the office to the bar, just pop on some bright lipstick if you want to change up your look a little.

5. Messy Waves

Everyone loves well done messy waves. They can have a little more bounce in the morning when they are freshly done, but come 5pm they would have dropped to messy perfection, ready for the night ahead.

Five Reasons Why New Hair Will Transform Your Life

A changing of the seasons brings about a sense of restlessness. Whether it’s a change in temperature or the leaves turning a different shade of orange, it makes many of us think ‘I’m in need of a change’. This feeling is completely normal and as they say, a change is as good as a holiday. Even our team at HeadHunters Hair Studio get restless and that’s why we love to change our hairstyle.

New hair is one of the best and easiest options when it comes to making a change, you look and feel totally different, which really helps you shake things up. We know you don’t need much convincing, but these five reasons from our team why new hair will transform your life are so true…

  1. Embrace the changing seasons with new hair

Does winter make you miss the sun? Does it make you feel like summer escaped without any warning? Have you been feeling like you’ve made no progress during that time? A new style and colour could be the way to go. These choices whether subtle or dramatic allow for us to see ourselves in a new light and can get us back on the positive path.

  1. Its liberating

New hair has the ability to free us. By making the decision to change something so personal, yet so on display to everyone else it allows for a sense of liberation to occur. Feeling tired with your long heavy hair? Chop it. Get that lob you’ve always wanted and feel the weight lifted off your shoulders. Same goes for colour, have you been brunette since you were 12? Change it up and find out if blondes have more fun. Whatever option you choose you’ll be left with that liberating feeling.

  1. Creates positive change

New hair can create all kinds of changes in your life, but with the right attitude it will be all positives. We believe that by changing the colour or the style of your hair it allows for us to see ourselves in a new light. This new view can be the push one needs in order to make important decisions and create a better future for us. So why not? Go for it.

Another great part about changing your hair is that it often has a ripple effect on the rest of your life as you notice yourself changing other little things that have been bothering you.

  1. New hair can boost your confidence

New hair will most likely lead to compliments from your friends, colleagues and family. With these compliments come smiles and confidence that you may not have felt with your previous hairstyle. The extra confidence can take you to new exciting places you’d never pictured yourself in before.

  1. New hair, new you

As simple and basic as it sounds new hair equals a new you. So why wouldn’t you want to experience it? Get out of your comfort zone and let an experienced stylist do the rest. It might be the best decision you’ll make all year.

So, if you think it’s time for a change. Give us a call at HeadHunters Hair Studio on (08) 9380 6665 to book your appointment and look forward to gorgeous looking hair that is sure to turn heads.

How To Know If You’re Ready For The Chop!

The thought of dramatically changing your hairstyle can be unnerving for many people, but can also be a life changing decision that could give you a new lease on life. A new hairstyle can really transform the way you look and feel and at HeadHunters Hair Studio, we love nothing more than seeing our clients looking and feeling confident.

Along with any new change, there are questions you ask yourself and sometimes doubt if you’re making the right decision. Will the new style look good? Will it suit your facial features? What happens if you don’t like the new look?

Here’s how to determine if it is time for you to make an appointment with our team at HeadHunters.

You’ve been sporting the same hairstyle for a couple of decades now

Many of us are guilty of making this style mistake. We got our hair cut in the style that was trending a decade ago and because we like the way it looks, we stay loyal to the style through the years.

When it comes to style no-nos, this one is a biggie. Any hairstyle, no matter how good it looked when you first got it, begins to look outdated eventually. Take a good hard look in a mirror. If you’re bored by your own reflection, it may be time to shake things up a bit, step out of your comfort zone and get a trendier cut. If you’re unsure of what style to go for, speak to our experienced stylists about some suggestions and trending styles.

You are always ‘on the go’ and don’t have time to fuss over your hair

If you find yourself constantly throwing your hair in a ponytail or bun just to get through the day, a more liberating and low-maintenance style could be just what you need. Getting a short cut can truly simplify your getting-ready routine in the morning and it would look fantastic all day long without needing to be combed or sprayed or generally messed with.

You’re in luck! Bobs are in this year and they are low maintenance too. With a straight or wavy bob, you will free up some time precious time in your daily schedule while still being en vogue. Isn’t that so much better than wearing your hair tied up in a bun simply because you do not have time to set your style before leaving home?

Your split ends are starting to give you an undesirably shaggy look

Split ends can make your hair look jaded, tired and shaggy and really doesn’t add length to your hair. Getting a chop will get rid of the split ends and make your hair look and feel healthier.

A great cut can have a truly dramatic effect and make you feel powerful. It brightens and highlights your face, lifts your spirits and frames your smile just right. If you read through this and thought, ‘yeah, I do that,’ to most of these then we think it’s time for the chop!

Call us on (08) 9380 6665 to book your appointment and look forward to gorgeous looking hair that’s far from boring.

Our 2016 Hair Trend Predictions

The New Year brings with it exciting new changes and new trends for the year and hairstyles are always a big part of that change. The outlook for 2016 hair trends is looking good with an exciting mix of styles; from edgy asymmetrical bobs to natural looking waves. Most styles are fun and easy to achieve and there is a style to suit everyone in 2016.

Asymmetrical bob

The Asymmetrical Bob

We saw a lot of shorter hairstyles towards the end of 2015 and it looks like 2016 is going to be a big year for the bob hairstyle, in particular the asymmetrical bob. Unlike the bob of the 90’s, 2016’s version has a softer, more styled feel. Instead of sharp and razor-cut, the edges are smoother and more natural. The asymmetrical bob is ideal for those of you who get bored easily; you can grow out one side and have the other short or just have a slight difference in length. How edgy you want to go is totally up to you!

 

 

 

 


beyonce-perfect-eyeliner-makeup-topshop-man-opening-mainThe ‘Wob’
 

Another bob hairstyle has made it into our hair predictions for 2016, the wob! We predict that this is going to be a big style this year. With it’s unusual name, the wob is a 21st century take on the bob, but with much more body and bounce, giving you a more fun and funky look. It’s a low maintenance hairstyle that is easy to achieve and easy to maintain, making it a great choice for those who have little time to spend on their hair in the mornings.

Beyoncé nailed the wob at the end of 2015 and we think a few other celebrities will follow in her footsteps for 2016.

 

 

Waves

Natural Waves for Long Hair

It’s time to embrace those natural waves that you’ve been killing with straighteners! Natural waves are in for 2016, the most popular style for long haired ladies. With bangs or without, this look is sexy and carefree and we are loving it! We recommend opting for a few layers to really emphasise and give bounce to your hair. The key is to keep your hair healthy with frequent trims to prevent any fly-aways and dead ends getting in the way of your good hair day.

 

 

 

 

Messy bunsMessy Buns & Pony Tails

For those professional ladies and mums on the go, you will be happy to know up-dos and braids are here to stay for 2016. We saw messy buns and messy pony tails for 2015 and these are trends that will continue through 2016. Incorporate braids into your hairstyles for a more boho look and use your hair to hide any hair ties that may be showing for a more natural look

 

 

 

 

braidsBraids

We saw a slight glimpse of braids in 2015, but braids are set to make a big comeback for 2016. By spring, everyone will be incorporating braids into their style. With so many options, braids are perfect for long or short hairstyles, whether you scatter a few small braids through your hair or opt for larger, messier braids. This is a trend we are loving for 2016!

 

 

 

 

 

balayageBalayage is here to stay

By far the most popular trend over the past few years, balayage is here to stay for 2016. Can’t decide between being a fun loving blonde or a sophisticated brunette? This is the hair trend that allows you to be both. Balayage is so versatile and customisable,

Our prediction for 2016 is that balayage will be used for more below-the-shoulder hair that will really emphasise the colour.

 

 

 

purple hairTrending Hair Colours – Purple & Silver

From Lady Gaga to Jessie J, all the style divas are experimenting with different shades of purple. A look at the catwalks and red carpets shows that a touch of purple to your hair is the in look for 2016. Back to the days of the blue and purple rinse from the older ladies, we think we are going to see an influx of purple and blue for the younger generations and we love it.
