Custom, unique & Complementary
An inside look at our most popular services
Balayage originiated in Paris, France in the 1970’s and is translated as ‘to sweep’ the hair. Traditionally this technique of highlighting is hand painted directly onto the hair without the use of foils. In North America the interest in this technique began in the late 1990’s and has now completely transformed the world of colouring!
Balayage can now be mimmicked using all kinds of different techniques some using foil, others meche sheets, by a backcombing technique…..the options are endless!
Regardless of the method, clients love the natual blend and grow out of a balayage. It can provide a natural ‘sun-kissed’ or softely blended look and requires far less maintenance than traditional foils. As professionals, this technique offers us a far greater accuracy in placing hair colour according to a client’s face shape to create the most complimentary look as well as lets us work with a clients natural hair texture to accent their curls or waves.
Our stylists were originally trained in the Balayage Hair Colour Technique by Maurice Fiorio (commonly seen on Cityline) at the Fiorio Beauty Acadamey as well as an Advanced Hair Painting Class in with Frances Canola from Whittier, California. We have been providing Balayage since 2011, and will continue to learn and perfect the new methods available to achieve the look you are wanting.
Blonding is one of the most requested services we offer and one of the most difficult to execute. We know you look at a picture and see the colour of blonde you want, while we look at the same picture and envision the process it will take to get your hair there safely!
There are so many shades of blonde so regardless of whether the application is balayage, foiling or global (full head), consultation is key.
Once we have taken your hair history to learn where we are starting from, it is imperative to assess your skin tone!
Ever had a blonding service done and just felt ‘washed out’ right afterwards? Despite the reemergence of warm blondes in recent trends (think bright, California beachy blondes!), cool ash blondes are always highly requested. The issue is cool, ashy tones aren’t for everyone!
After a good consultation we’ll be able to take the tone you are looking for and tweak it ever so slightly to create a stunning custom blonde created to look absolutely stunning with your unique skin tone.
Natural or Vibrant Fashion tones, you can really wear them all!
After a year long period of testing using both popular and newly emerging colour lines, we are proud to be partnered with the stand out winner, Keune Hair Cosmetics!
So what does this mean for you? We chose Keune specifically for the benefit you will receive from having Keune used at your service. Check them out below!
Key Ingredients and Technologies:
- Solamer – gives full spectrum UV coverage to protect from fading and is the only line to offer both UVA and UVB protection.
- Silk Proteins to condition, nourish and add shine
- Cocomide, sourced from Coconut Oil gives iridescence to your colour and adds incredible shine
- LP 300 – a hair colour stabilizer which dramatically increases the longevity of your colour! Keune adapted this technology from the textile industry because really, why should our hair colour fade when fabic holds colour for much longer?!

We are also proud to use Pulp Riot for our vivid haircolour. For us this means an amazing colour palette and most importantly for you, the longest lasting fashion colour we’ve ever had our hands on!
Do you want more than ‘just a haircut’? We want more for you too.
A haircut may sometimes take a backseat visually to a stunning haircolour, but the haircut is actually what you have to work with day in and day out when you do your hair! That’s so important!
Your haircut needs to allow for ease of styling, be complementary for your face shape and work in hand with your haircolour.
One service to do all those things? It’ll never be ‘just’ a haircut!
Is it important to you to keep your hair healthy?
It’s very important to us! It’s of course our responsibility to care for your hair during service, but even more importantly its our job to honestly convey any risks prior to service and to educate you on how we can avoid taking them.
During consultation the health of your hair is assessed and our recommendations for services will be dependant on it. For severe cases of damage and dryness we may present a custom treatment plan and work together to regain the health of your hair. Rest assured that treatment plans don’t just involve getting in salon treatments! Your custom plan will include instruction on how often you should be using heat, shampooing, putting your hair up when wet, etc. There are a lot of things that you can do that don’t cost a single thing!
We can work together to get your hair back to exactly where you want it to be.
