Vicki exploring New Zealand south

With the circumstances we have all found ourselves in lately it seems a good idea to revisit some local attractions and places. That good old saying “Don’t leave home until you have seen the country”

Vicki in Twizel

Last weekend my husband and I had a couple of nights down inTwizel in our caravan, we were pleasantly surprised to see how many locals wereout and about. On Saturday we went for a drive into Mount Cook and again we weresurprised there were Kiwis out and about. In these times I feel it is soimportant to be supporting local New Zealand businesses where we can.

This can be with our food, fashion, retail, and servicesindustries. We have really appreciated the support our business has had fromour clients and local community since lockdown has been lifted to level 2.Sometimes it is the small things in life that give us pleasure. A lot of peoplehave been coming in for their post lock down haircuts and styles and sayingwhat a lift it has given them.

Now is the perfect time to have a think about having a newhair style or reinvent your entire look.

I thought I better practise what I preach, and my lovely staff gave me a new hair style a couple of weeks ago. It just feels refreshing and uplifting to give our selves a little pampering and grooming luxury.

Caravan stay
Good hair and good wine

Having very fine hair myself I either need it long enough to tie up or short to thicken it up. Fiko, one of our Stylist Directors cut my hair from shoulder length to a soft textured bob, its very easy to manage and getting that length off feels like it has given me a bit of a lift. Using the correct styling products really makes our hair more manageable and easier to style. A good consultation is important. You don’t need to be having  a hair appointment with us to come in for a free consultation and hair advice.

Here are a few pictures of some other ladies who have been in for post lock down makeovers.

Beautiful balayage

This lady had brassy faded out long hair and Executive Stylist Daniel worked his magic creating this beautiful soft warm beige balayage, just stunning.

messy lockdown hair
going grey gracefully

After lockdown and letting her hair grow this lady decided it was time for a change, freshen up and to have a soft going grey gracefully colour with textured haircut. Executive Stylist Daniel worked his magic with one of our going grey gracefully procedures creating this stunning result. This will be so manageable both when styling and when the new growth comes in there will not be a hard demarcation line, one very happy lady.

Shaggy hair
Sophisticated new look

Longer length in hair that is not in premium condition can look straggly. This lady had a full head of very fine back to back highlights and toned with one of our iridescent shine blonde toners the cut also makes this style, she is now sophisticated with a classy new hairdo!
