We are wishing our clients, stylists and their families a safe and happy Christmas and New Year! Thank you for your love and support in 2014. We are taking a break over Christmas and Boxing Day – both our King William Road and North Adelaide salons will re-open on the 27th of December and take another break on New Year’s Day.

We love nothing more than a product update so we’re excited to welcome the latest addition to the Kevin.Murphy range into our salons! Introducing Plumping.Line – a wash, rinse and treatment combo that promises to leave your hair thicker and fuller.
“The PLUMPING line became a reality because of all the successes I had seen with eyelash thickening and lengthening products. The results I saw were quite astonishing because it actually works. This technology was the inspiration for the line but I also looked at the successes that were being achieved with these types of men’s products as well. I then realised that there was nothing truly feminine on the market that helped women both on an emotional level and a therapeutic level” – Kevin Murphy
Plumping.Wash is a thickening shampoo for thinning hair. Ginger Root and Nettle Extracts densify fine strands, stimulating and nourishing the scalp. Plumping.Rinse thickens and strengthens hair, with added protective and hydrating benefits. Finish up with Body.Mass uses eyelash thickening technology, giving hair an instant boost and improving its condition over time. We’ve given the line a test-run – the products feel beautiful and work like a dream. We’re predicting that this line will fly off the shelves, so give them a try!

Braided faux undercuts have been all over the red carpets and runways of late, most notably worn by Cara Delevingne at last year’s Met Gala. We’re dubbing the style our pick for the upcoming 2014 formal season – equal parts edgy, wearable and understated.
To recreate this look at home, begin by parting your hair deeply to one side, using the end of your eyebrow as a guide. Pin the parted hair out of the way. Using the hair on the undercut side, create between one and three horizontal braids, as close to the scalp as possible – for a stand out look we love french braids and dutch braids. When you reach the back of your head, pin each braid using a bobby pin. Remove the pin holding your remaining hair on the parted side, which will move to hide the pins securing the braids. For an amped up look, lightly tease the hair at the top of your head, and use a texturising spray on your loose hair.
Bright copper colour took centre stage at our Summer photo shoot, paired with a blunt fringe and bold eyes. With Autumn nearing, bright red tones have become the latest colour obsession amongst our stylists. The bold hues have particularly been picked up by our junior stylists, who have sported shades ranging from red to copper ombre to bright magenta colours. Perfect for someone who wants to stand out from the crowd, this attention grabbing trend is not for the faint of heart.

There’s nothing sweeter than a gorgeous romantic up-style. Soft, embellished hair took centre stage at the Dolce & Gabbana, Honor and Zac Posen 2014 Spring/Summer shows, paving the way for a trend that is totally wearable off the runway.

Romantic up-styles make for perfect bridal hair, but can also be worn for formals, or dressed down for the weekend when paired with a casual outfit. To nail this trend, keep hair soft and tousled, then add braids, flowers or dainty gold accessories.
