Balayage, verything you need to know about.

MY HAIR IS CHANGING COLOUR THIS FALL!

Your hair still has that summer colour after being exposed to sun, ocean, and pool. But it’s already fall, and those slightly damaged reddish blonde tips that went so well with your summer look now make you look a little unkempt. It is time to freshen up your hair colour, so why not make a [...]

Curls that will turn heads

Who ever imagined that curls would make a big comeback? And yet, of all the hairdos seen on the runways at this year’s top spring and summer fashion shows, they were all anyone could talk about!

Status report: Keratins, straighteners, relaxers

That’s why techniques and products for managing wavy hair are so popular. But with all the hair straighteners, relaxers and other [...]
