Olaplex: The Holy Grail Of Hair Colour

Imagine if I told you that I have a product that will revolutionise your hair colour. Bleaching it, really pushing its limits, giving you the chance to do something you’ve ever done before – And with no breakage or damage. Sounds too good to be true?
Well imagine no longer, because Olaplex is coming to Blisque!

Olaplex is a complete game changer, and we are so excited to be one of the only salons in the Mornington Peninsula to be exclusively offering this service to our wonderful clients.

So now I bet you are asking – What exactly is it? What IS Olaplex?
Olaplex is a 3 step process used exclusively in the salon to really get the best possible result for your hair.
When using standard colour on your hair, they have been designed to break bonds in the hair. By breaking the bonds, it lifts and deposits colour. With Olaplex, it multiplies and rebuilds those bonds stronger than they were before.

1. We add the ‘Bond Multiplier No. 1‘ directly to the lightener or colour. It is a single active ingredient that reconnects broken disulphide sulphur bonds in the hair. These bonds can break when exposed to chemicals in colour, from heat, and mechanical force such as combing wet hair. Additionally, it can also be used as a strengthening treatment for your hair without having to colour it.

2. To eliminate any breakage, we apply ‘Bond Perfector No. 2‘ after rinsing the colour from your hair, and prior to shampooing it. This step is necessary to link the remaining disulphide bonds before and after service restoring the strength, structure and integrity of the hair.

3. Hair Perfector No. 3‘ is a further treatment that you can do in the comfort of your own home. This treatment will maintain strength, structure, integrity, softness and shine of your hair, leading up to your next service at Blisque. You should use it once a week for full benefits.

So now you know what it is, what it does, and how we use it. This product is seriously going to change the way you look at hair. We will be able to push boundaries further than ever before. I am so excited to be able to offer this incredible service to you all. This is going to give you the confidence, the insurance, and most importantly – The ability to colour or lighten your hair at any level, without the risk of breakage.

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. All products listed in this blog can be purchased in store at Blisque Salon.

Xtense Hair Extensions – Hairswift

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

 

Like fashion, hair trends are always changing. We have seen many hairstyles come in and out over the years, such as the bob, lobs (long bobs), concaves, pixie cuts, and then even to experimenting with layers and fringes. Sometimes we love it, and sometimes we freak out and want to go back! Through all the colouring and changes, some damage can occur over time and you may lose the thickness or fullness of your hair. To support our ever changing and indecisive minds, we have the hair extension experts to have our back time and time again!

Introducing Hairswift Hair Extensions by Xtense.

The Xtense group have transformed the hair extension industry with its original patent innovation, HairSwift.
HairSwift have won the hearts of our clients who have always searched for a damage free solution to having long, thick and luscious hair.
We only use 100% pure Remy human hair, that has been personally inspected and approved.

What is Remy Hair you ask? Remy Hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-Remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance.

There are a lot of different techniques when it comes to Hair Extension installation, and Xtense has the worlds fastest application time – saving you time and money! It is pain free, there are no harsh chemicals being used, no hair damage, no 100s micro rings, no sewn in weaves and no sticky tapes. It is applied on a minimal area, feeling light and undetectable, while still achieving maximum body and density as desired. As we only use 100% real human hair, you can treat them as your own lovely hair. They can be cut, coloured, curled or straightened to blend more naturally or as desired.

We are passionate hair lovers, and I’m certain you will be too once experiencing the beautiful feeling and fullness of Hairswift Hair Extensions.

Please call Blisque Salon on (03) 9775 2949 to book in a consultation with one of our highly experienced Hair Extension Specialists.

Wedding Seasons & Choosing The Right Hairdresser

It has been so crazy here in the Salon these past few weeks! With Christmas coming and leaving, it is still Summer and we have been having many warm days which means wedding season is still kicking in full force!

Your wedding day is one of the most planned for and important days of your life. You want everything to run smoothly, you want to look your absolute best and you want a supportive and creative hairstylist there to help you shine through it. Introducing Team Blisque!

There are many crucial factors you should consider when choosing your hairstylist and I’m going to break it down for you today.

1. Your budget is clearly an important factor when making decisions for your wedding. Make sure that you include all members of your bridal party (if you have chosen to pay for them, of course!) so we can work out a total cost that will fit your budget. For a price estimation list, please see here.

2. We recommend booking in for a trial about a month prior to your set date to ensure we get communicating properly and finding the perfect hairstyle to suit you on your wedding day. At your trial, we will discuss a broad range of topics to get a proper idea of what magic we can create on your head!

3. Communication is the key! It is important to feel that you can effectively communicate with your hairdresser, and as we are visually creative people, we encourage you to bring or send in photos so we can get a feel of what look you are after. We love to see photos of your dress, the flowers, hair piece or veil, and anything else you have to show us. From there, we can make alterations, and discuss with you more in detail of what you are aiming for. Mood boards are also a great way to get your look across to us!

4. Knowing your hair is important, and it is very vital for us to get a feel of the texture, length and shape of your hair. Depending on what hairstyle you are looking for, volume and/or length may be an issue that we can help you solve! We stock the best quality hair extensions and can help you achieve that long and full look on the day if that is what you desire.

5. Timing is everything on your wedding day, and we want to ensure that everything runs smoothly for you. If it is convenient for you to come into the Salon, we will arrange a time that suits you best. If you would prefer to have our team travel out to your location, we can also arrange that with no hassle! Travel fees do apply.

We have look books available in the Salon at all times for you to come in and have a browse through to see the wonderful work we have created for previous weddings. We absolutely love it when the brides send us photos from their day, which we can add to our look book to help future brides make the right decision and choose our talented team here at Blisque Salon to be apart of their special day.

Now that you know about all the important factors into choosing the right hairdresser for you on your Wedding Day, we are certain that our team can give you the dream hairstyle you are after to be apart of the day that you will remember for the rest of your life.

Lots of love,
The Blisque Girls x
Happy Wedding Season!
