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?

PRICE INCREASE

It's been a while since one of these- 2 years to be precise. A fair bit has changed in that time, including the cost of just about everything involved in running a business. Effective immediately, we are implementing a 5% price increase across all salon services. Thankyou for your continued and loyal patronage and we look forward to servicing our wonderful clients for many years to come.

Sadie is also a Showpony Hair Extensions specialist and can colour match any head of hair to suit their amazing human hair extensions.

For blondes and people who lighten their hair, this is a saviour product that can keep your hair in tip-top healthy condition. Sadie is a big fan.

Hair expo 2016

Hair Expo 2016


Over the weekend we had the greatest pleasure in watching our lovely Louise up on stage for Hair Expo 2016 in Melbourne. She was one of four finalists for Apprentice of the Year across both Australia and New Zealand.


On stage she showed off her amazing hairdressing skills and spoke of her creative concepts. We are so proud of her and excited to see the incredible work she has in store for the future.


Stevie was there with Matrix, Evy Professional and Excellent Edges to show of some of the best industry tools, which we are fortunate enough to use in our salons.

Balayage experts in Sydney

BALAYAGE

Meaning ‘to sweep’ in french, the balayage colouring technique has become one of the most popular salon services around the world. Originating in the 60s and 70s in Europe, it has made its way to popular culture through A List celebs and celebrity stylists.  It has been around for a while and it is no longer a 'trend'- it's a staple salon colour technique. 

 The balayage technique requires high skill, training and a lot of focus and expertise. Stevie travels around the globe and is in the middle of an Australian tour teaching other hairdressers how to balayage. All Stevie English colourists and colour technicians are proficient in the technique and do a similar style of balayage.   It looks well put together, no matter if your hair is straight, curly or tied up in a bun. It is the best low maintenance colour, requiring touch ups only every 6 - 10 weeks.

Although only recently made popular, the style itself is timeless and is reminiscent of classic, youthful beauty. Centred around the technique of painting highlights on to the hair in a free form, “sweeping” motion, the balayage effect should reveal a natural and sun-kissed, “your hair, but better” look. Of course you can make it with bright, bold colours too!

Customisable to your style, your aesthetic and your hair preferences

Every balayage is tailor-made and personalised for every client. No two heads are the same. As you would for make-up contouring, the soft highlights and/or lowlights are designed to accentuate certain areas. Different levels of lift can be used to visually manipulate the hair, making it look longer, shorter, thicker and/or multi dimensional. Have fun with it!

 

Balayage goes beyond just natural colours as well. More and more people are moving towards creative colours such as greys, purples, blues and pinks. Remember, trust the process and understand that not all colour goals are achieveable on the first attempt. Colour, especially colour correction and big changes, takes time. Look after your hair, use treatments and enjoy the results on healthy hair!

Effortlessly low maintenance yet sophisticated and on trend. 

 

 

Best Hairdressers in Glebe, Best Apprentice in Australia!

Last weekend was Hair Expo, the biggest hairdressing event in the southern hemisphere. The Stevie English Team participated in many elements of the Expo, including the very prestigious Apprentice Competition. This contest is no easy task, the young stylists are up on stage with their model and they are given 45 mins to finish a haircut in front of  a packed auditorium. It's hard enough to do a haircut in 45 mins, let alone with the added pressure of being watched by all of your colleagues, peers and friends. To top it off, some of the best hairdressers in Australian scrutinise your worked and pass judgement on it!

This year we had two of our young superstars entering the Apprentice Comp- Joel Phillips and Stephen Grech. Joel was recently awarded Judges Recognition for his incredible photographic collection for Hair Expo, and both he and Stephen are prized salon assets. The fantastic news- Stephen was judged the winner on the day! His award is a credit to all his hard work and natural talent. We are all super proud of both our boys.

Stevie English Hair is proud of our team, we are proud of our culture too. We love hairdressing and we love to share our knowledge. We have a really strong team, who enjoy each others company and who enjoy sharing our talents and skills. We put a lot of emphasis on training. Our assistants are tomorrows superstars, and some of our young guys are really starting to shine. Georgie Won this award 2 years ago, and so for Stephen to win it this year was great and sets the standard for the students  coming though are academy . There is a slight bias but  the winner was going to be either Stephen or Joel, both haircuts were  both technically good. Jade is the head trainer in the salon with Kirsty and Verity helping out to

show slightly different approaches to cutting and Stevie runs all the colour education.

Here are two shots we took of Stephen's winning haircut back stage prepping for our #GenNext show.

Great colour, (someone has taught him well)and great haircut.  Not bad for someone who has only just started the third year of his apprenticeship. We are really proud of Stephen and Joel, not only for winning and getting attention but for trying so damn hard. They have great careers ahead of them and we can't wait to watch.

The Best Salon In Sydney Two Years Running!

We have done it again! The hangovers have subsided and we have another trophy on the mantle piece. We are always thrilled to be nominated or to win awards for our hairstyles but I think hairdressers often forget the business side of our industry, we are the left-brain creative types. So for us to win a business award for the second year running is a big deal. It shows that it is possible to be creative and to understand my business. It's a team effort, The creative team make our business successful, and the business team make sure we don't go bankrupt!

We have lots of great friends who help us, none more than the team who own Atlantis Hair . They were also nominated in this award category, and I dedicated the win to them. They taught us so much about starting up and being successful, as did our friends at Chumba Hair. And some other great friends who i would be nothing without. We are very proud of ourselves, and forever grateful to our fantastic team and our super amazing clients. Thanks for voting everyone, and thanks for the support. We love you all!
