Be smart with your hair colouring

Here are some tips to make the most ofkeeping your hair looking spot on with minimal regrowth.

  • For those with highlights have a toner at say 4 weeks to smudge out new growth and refresh your desired tone.
  • When having foils and global colour make every second and or third visit for just a retouch root colour and a treatment for the ends to get longevity out of your colour.
  • Ombre and balayage are still very on-trend and easily disguise new growth.
  • If the silver whites creeping in switch to our latest technology smooth blending colours, these have no /minimal regrowth lines.
  • When having a high lift blonde tint have this done every three weeks for best results as the lessor the new growth the better the lightening process.

Regular beauty maintenance

Get regular facials

A facial is a skin treatmentfor the face that can cleanse your pores, exfoliate, rejuvenate, nourish andleave your skin feeling smooth and healthier. Our therapists give you a fullskin analysis to make the decision of what the right facial is for yourindividual needs. The multi-step facial process varies depending on what typeof facial you or the therapist have requested. Gettinga facial every four to six weeks can make a big difference in your complexion.Think of it as a mini-retreat just for your face that helps erase all theanxiety, long days and longer nights from the past several weeks. Plus, you'llget some real insight into what's going on with your skin and what it needs tolook its best once you leave.


  • Threading can be used toeliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definitionto the brow.
  • Threading is much kinder to theskin and is considerably less painful than other methods of hair removal.
  • Threading lifts the hair fromthe follicle, therefore if it is done on a regular basis, it weakens the hairfollicle so hair growth becomes less dense over time, and new hair will growfiner and sparser.
  •  Re-growth is between 2-4 weeks, depending onhair growth. This makes threading the most effective method of hair removal onthe face for everyone. If you are looking for the best results, you need toconsider threading. It is known to be a wonderful option for formal events,such as weddings or simply as an addition to a regular beauty regime.
