We Live and Breathe Hair colour! Best Hair Salon in Sydney.

MIRACLE PRODUCT’S ALERT





Here at Stevie English Hair, we do a LOT of colour services. Stevie is the current holder of the “ HairExpo Australian Colour Technician of the Year” title, and he doesn’t do anything else besides colour. Stevie Also spends a lot of the time travelling educating colour around the globe for Matrix.

Our senior team spend all day foiling, balayaging, lightening and toning hair, and our apprentice team learn colour theory and practical before any other hairdressing skills. We live and breathe colour.

Every head of hair is different, and every colour we do in the salon is tailored to our clients and is never the same as any other colour. The only common denominator when colouring hair is the desire to maintain the condition of our clients’ hair. Condition is important for a number of reasons, one being that our work looks better on healthy, shiny, strong hair! Colour also lasts longer on healthy hair. We have a motto at Stevie English Hair, we can do anything with your colour as long as your condition is there. And these two products seriously help!

There is a lot of chatter about ‘miracle’ products in the hair and beauty industries and for the most part, the claims are nonsense. But it is our job to sort through the rubbish to get to the true gold, then pass it on to our clients. We have been using Bond Ultim8 bond restorer in our colour for years, and the results have been amazing. The only relatively new product that we have tried that delivers the same level of results is KHairPep.

KHairPep is unlike any other treatment we use in the salon. It’s the only product of its kind that carries a patented 18-chain peptide and 23 amino acids into hair fibres to repair the damaged caused by colouring and heat styling hair. Basically it’s a scientifically formulated peptide treatment that does what it says it will. You apply KHairPep to damp shampooed hair (do not condition), wait 5 minutes then blow-dry or just leave. No rinsing. It’s very simple to use which probably increases it’s effectiveness because you ACTUALLY USE IT as it’s not a fussy multi-step time consuming affair.

We are devotees of KHairPep and so is pretty much anyone who uses it in the salon or at home. Even the most skeptical of product skeptics (Mel) is converted. Simple to use, not fussy, actually works. What more could you want?

Curly Hair Superstar team

With a combined 85 years oh hairdressing experience, there isn't much they don't know about curly hair: so I would like to introduce our curly hair stars.  

We spend time training because we know that curly hair is an art in itself. Even with such a large amount of experience - our team always are learning new skills, and there is always a new product to help with curly hair, from our amazing partner Matrix. 

Shaun  worked in London for over 10 years at one of London's top salons. His skills are amazing with afro hair and very difficult hair all lengths. If you think you are a challenge hair wise - Shaun is your go to guy!  He is also the salon's creative specialist, so your curls will be managed and you'll look better than ever before. 

Dave hails from Scotland, he was the head educator for Vidal Sasson in London and also was one of the first educators for Toni & Guy - back in the day when he used to cut hair by candlelight. Dave has great experience with all kinds of curls. Dave understand how the silhouette of your hair works with your head shape - so he'll make even the trickiest hair curls and lengths fabulous. 

Jyle has travelled all the way from Newcastle and has been with Stevie English Hair for over 7 years. He's is a huge fan of soft curls he knows when to cut and when not to, his style is gentle and approaches every clients hair individually.

Sadie originally from England, knows all about troublesome curly, frizzy hair, as she has lived with it all her life.  Sadie's  secret is all about hydrating curls. She has knack for creating beautiful shapes with soft curls, and also is not afraid to add a big bouncy blow dry. 

What products should I use with my curls ? 

From Matrix we have a few options

Curl Please - which is a curly hair regime - A Shampoo and a Conditioner,  and then use either the contouring lotion - to boost body bounce and shine,   or the super de-frizzer - a lightweight strong hold for definition and frizz control .

From our O&M range - Style Guru  and Frizzy Logic for styling , and Seven day Miracle to help hydrate your curls,

From R&Co. Twister is a great styling product.  

Our 3 biggest tips for curly hair are:

1. Only put in curl products in when the hair is soaking wet.

2. Air dry your curls 

3. Avoid razoring curly hair.

Trend Alert: Creative Undercuts

The Undercut is a term used for the shaven areas of a hairstyle. Whether it is at the nape of the neck or on the sides, it can be a fun way to add dimension and an element of surprise to your everyday style.


We believe that with changing trends more people are willing to be adventurous with their precious locks, and while the undercut can be a bit daring at times, it can also be used as a tool to help lighten the load for thick haired people.
As for the creative stuff, we love making the regular undercut more exciting - adding shapes, layers and sometimes colour. If this tickles your fancy, our cutting experts at Stevie English will be able to come up with something unique for you and your style!

HAPPINESS

One of our core ideals at Stevie English Hair - Is to have as much fun as possible and to be happy.

 

It definitely is my goal, I love my job and I get to work with so many creative people. This year I’ve been across the Globe for Matrix educating and playing at colouring hair. And here in Australia I have spent my time educating, hanging in my salons with my cool staff and working on The Voice as Hair Ambassador for Matrix and we are only half-way through the year! 

 

We believe that being happy is a great thing, and part of that feeling, is feeling good about yourself - and obviously we think a great hair can help.

 

I was reading an article the other day that was about the two things that go along with happiness; expectation and surprise. We like to think there’s some fun expectation of your booked appointment for Stevie English hair and the surprise - Well we don’t ever want to surprise any client. But we do like to help and assist with the look you want to achieve - I know our team (teamEnglish) have so much skill and creative genius that can help to add and suggest ways to make your look even more you!  So we hope that you have a style thats even better than you imagined - and thats always a happy surprise!

 

We like to think that when we are all happy we feel good about ourselves - so thats why this Saturday we would do something fun.  Just because ... 

 

You’ll be able to snap your new snip from stevie english hair on snapchat whilst in the salon - and add our exclusive filter to your image - its just for the day - its a first for a Hairsalon and we hope you’ll have fun adding your happiness surprise and perhaps a little expectation to it as well!

Happy hair right there! Happy hairdressers too! So tomorrow in our salons play on snapchat and use our exclusive filter.
