There are no Magic Products

That’s right – I just said it! 😱

Me.  A salon owner.  A Hairstylist.  A seller of all kinds of hair products.

And in spite of all of those reasons to say ‘This product will solve all your problems!’ I can’t do it.  I can’t do it because it would be a lie, and we all know how I feel about being honest and transparent with clients 😉

In fact, this blog has actually been inspired by a real life conversation between Team members over lunch, because they won’t say it either! Lol

Don’t get me wrong.  There are products on our shelves that I LOVE.  Products that I’ve never had as great a result with.  Products that do exactly what they say they will do and give clients amazing results.  Products that I confidently recommend to clients because I know with 100% certainty that it will help with their haircare and/or styling routine.

Products are a way for you (and us!) to help get you closer to the hair you want to have.

❌  They are not magic.

❌  They aren’t one size fits all.

❌  There is no magic product line (seriously though – if there was you wouldn’t see six million and one different lines out there!).

❌  They don’t work overnight.

❌  They don’t change your hair texture.

❌  They do not defy the laws of gravity until you choose to wash your hair next.

Ever gotten a product recommendation from a friend who raves about how this product instantly changed their hair and you just have to try it?  So you spend your money on this holy grail of a product and are SO disappointed because it literally does nothing for your hair?

We hear about it all the time.  ALL. THE. TIME. 💯

I completely understand though.  We all want things that make our lives easier.  We want whatever will work best to get us the look we want to create. Depending on the struggle you experience with your hair, you may have a strong bit of evidence under you bathroom sink to prove your continuing quest. 🙊

Here’s what I want you to know:

✅  Products can help you.

✅  Products can prevent heat styling damage.

✅   Products can improve the look and feel of your hair.

✅  Products can make styling your hair easier.

✅  Products can temporarily enhance or combat your natural texture.

The above benefits will not be provided by a single bottle and its super important to remember that what works for your hair will be entirely different from what works for someone else.

These reasons are why we carry different product ranges, and are continually testing new products before we add them to the shelves to be sold.  It is a continual process to seek out the best for you.

The truth is we need product to do your hair in order to give you the result you want.

We aren’t selling a product because of a kickback or a commission.  We’re recommending it based on the fact that it was necessary for us to use to get you the results you wanted, and we know for you to replicate those results at home, you are going to need it too.

It’s honeslty that simple.

Our goal is to build a longterm relationship with you and help you acheive the results you really want.

So I’ll say it again for the people in the back……

‘There are no magic products to solve your hair problems.  BUT – there are incredibley beneficial products that when used properly and in combination with one another can really help you get closer to your hair goals.”

We know this because we need them for you too 💗

Thanks for listening,

Carrie

The feeling we get from creating something truly beautiful is what drives us to continue, to find the next medium and create. Anyone who follows their passion in life or is an artistic person will understand this feeling. It’s this feeling that most young hair stylists are chasing in their journey to turn their passion of hair styling into a career.

Consultation Confessional – the truth is always best!

Consultation Confessional – the truth is always best!

As Hairstylists we use a consultation to learn your  ‘hair history’.  It’s the story of whats happened in the lifetime of your hair and ultimately is what we use to formulate your colour before we begin your service.  For clients who have been with a Hair stylist for a number of years this consultation is far less complicated. We know the history, the services and colours that your hair has endured.  Great stylists even have notes from the consultation and formulas on hand for reference! But what if you are a first time client going for a consultation?  OR what if you are a regular client that had a little ‘mishap’ since your last service? What happens then?
