Maintaining Healthy, Blonde Hair

IMG_4081

So, you’ve got blonde hair. Or maybe you’re deciding to take the plunge and go lighter with your hair.
As we all know, bleach can be one of the most damaging things to do to your hair. It literally removes colour and can cause brittle, damaged and weak hair. But in saying that, your hair does not need to stay in this condition! There is hope!

Today, I am going to list what we recommend to maintain healthy, strong blonde hair.

1. I cannot stress this enough, please go to a professional. As we are all fully qualified hairdressers, we really know what we are talking about and can give you the best possible outcome when lightening your hair, without compromising the health of it. We will be able to assess the current condition of your hair, and give you personalised advice based on the desired colour that you are after.

2. When working with bleach, not only are you removing your hairs natural colouring, you can also remove the nutrients. Using a protein shampoo can help rebuild and repair the hair follicles. We recommend Evo’s Ritual Salvation Protein Shampoo (RRP $29.95)

3. Bleaching hair can cause it to be brittle and damaged, so moisture is needed to be put back into it once you have used a protein shampoo to maintain sleek, smooth and shiny hair – While keeping it light and non greasy. You can use this treatment once a week, or for thicker hair you can opt to use this instead of conditioner. We recommend Evo’s The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask (RRP $29.95)

4. In combination with a protein shampoo, you should be using a moisturising conditioner to calm and de-frizz your hair. With using the golden ingredient, Argan Oil – It is proven to make your hair softer, shinier and silkier, it can even help repair split ends – You really can’t go wrong. We recommend Evo’s The Therapist Calming Conditioner (RRP $29.95)

5. So your hair is washed and you need to dry it. Blow dryers can be more beneficial for your hair than air drying, if done correctly. It is always best if you can keep away from the hot setting and blow dry your hair on the cool or warm setting, while keeping the hair dryer a good distance away from your hair. Adding a heat protectant to your hair before drying it can really improve the quality of it. But why stop at just the one benefit? We have a miracle product that can help with 11 things that your hair will love! It adds shine, smoothness and softness. It controls your frizz & flyaways. It moisturises the ends. It strengthens fragile hair. It prevents split ends. It detangles. It protects against heat styling. It enhances the natural body of your hair. It repairs dry damaged hair. It protects hair colour. It also prevents chlorine and sun damage. It really earned its name. We recommend Eleven Australia’s Miracle Hair Treatment (RRP $24.95)

6. Last but not least, finish off your hair with a touch of love. This weightless spray adds incredible shine and prevents against humidity and frizz, without collapsing your style. It also smells like a watermelon haven! We recommend Evo’s Love Touch Shine Spray (RRP $29.95)

Blonde hair can be very time consuming work, but when treated and maintained properly with the help of professional hairdressers, it can be absolutely killer! We love taking pride in producing outstanding blonde colours on all of you beautiful people. So come in for a consultation and lets get you rocking that hair.

Happy 5th Birthday Blisque!

Back in February 5th, 2010 was the memorable day that the mother-daughter duo Rosemary & Jess Wintle opened the doors to the salon here at Blisque. Originally with the one hairdresser, Jess was working hard to deliver a brand new and spectacular service to the town of Mt Eliza, and it quickly grew into a booming business of demand. Shortly after and throughout the years, we welcomed the talents of Sarah Noisette, Tori Norton, Sarah Ryan, Alisha Howell, our super-star apprentice Jessie Taylor, and receptionist Jaymee Leyana.
Blisque Salon has always had the aim to provide not only the best hair care products and services to nourish your hair, but also a genuine warm and friendly service that will leave you feeling refreshed, confident and happy with the outcome every single time. We will always offer that satisfaction and promise to you.

Through the years, we have tried and tested many hair products, perfecting our crafts and have fallen in love with our #1 brand, Evo. (See more on why we love Evo, here!) We have been creating masterpieces with the help of their incredible styling products, powders, serums and sprays – and they have never let us down! Born from a desire to produce an exclusive salon range (and not sell it as the answer to life, love and other woes), Evo steps outside the normal realm of truth-stretching invention in a ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ crusade of twisted honesty – designed to make people think. And so comes the catch phrase – saving ordinary humans from themselves™

To keep up with our fresh image, the salon has undergone a dramatic makeover to match our insides to our outsides. We love the crisp, white and chic look of where we spend most of our days and feel that it matches the atmosphere that we aim to constantly provide.

We are always looking to further our education, as trends, styles and fashion are always changing. Thanks to Haircare Australia, we are constantly enrolling into courses at their South Melbourne location, keeping to keep us up to date with the freshest tips and tricks of the trade, and bring them into practice at the salon to deliver even better services to our most important clients, you! This year, Haircare plan to come out to our Salon and provide us with even more training and education to further our skills, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We have endured a lot through these incredibly fast-paced years and could not be any more blessed to have such a loving, loyal and supportive client-base in the Mornington Peninsula. We work hard at what we do, we take pride in our work and we have so much fun doing it every single day. We have become a family here at Blisque, and we are always looking to expand it. This year is going to bring so many new and exciting opportunities, and we are truly blessed to have each and every one of you supporting us along the way.

Thank you for believing in us, thank you for embracing us and thank you for trusting us.
We couldn’t have done all this this, without all of you.

Happy 5th Birthday Blisque Salon.
Love every one of us girls-
Jess, Rosemary, Noisey, Smokey, Tori, Alisha, Jessie & Jaymee
