NEW YEAR, NEW YOU, NEW HAIR!

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU, NEW HAIR!

2018 is done. More or less anyway! So, Happiest New Year from the team at Lane Cove’s and North Sydney’s best hair salons! We are so excited to spend some quality time with our friends and family, but we are just as excited to welcome you all back in 2019.

With a fresh new year comes that age old question – is it time for a change? All the promise of a shiny new 365 days can inspire us to get creative and try something new, so here we run through two of the biggest options to consider with our award-winning best hairdressers.

LONG OR SHORT?

Is there anything more feminine than tumbling mermaid-esque curls? It’s the ultimate hair style status symbol, as immaculately kept long hair can’t help but look luxurious and expensive. For versatility long hair wins hands down. Sleek and straight. Soft waves. Elaborate up-dos. Intricate braids. Sure, there is a little more upkeep, but it’s not something that everyone gets the chance to experience, so if you are able to grow it, why wouldn’t you? Even growing it out doesn’t need to be essential thanks to the amazing extensions now available.

When it comes to convenience, short hair is in a world of its own. Who hasn’t chopped off their locks and felt the most incredible sense of freedom and empowerment? It’s like those extra lengths can weigh us down physically as well as emotionally. And let’s not forget that with a perfectly cut bob, shag or pixie, short hair is downright sexy. It’s just so much more relaxed. No battling knotted tendrils into submission, no desperate last-ditch ponytails or headwear to get out the door. Spritz some texturising spray, give a quick scrunch and you are pretty much good to go.

BLONDE OR BRUNETTE OR REDHEAD?

Do blondes really have more fun? Are redheads fiery and passionate? Do good girls have perfect brunette locks? Hair colour is so closely tied into people’s perceptions of us- both good and bad. When it comes to colour we think everyone should feel comfortable enough to play around with different hair colour at least once in their life.

For brunettes looking to go blonde, the rise of balayage and new hair colour formulas like Olaplex mean that the damaged and broken peroxide hair of the past is well and truly gone. In its place are the most natural sun kissed options to either ease into it, or metallic icy tones for those who want to jump straight in.

For blondes looking for a change, we love taking them a deep, rich chocolate shade to make blue and green eyes pop, but we especially love trying out a red. From vibrant gingers through to warming wine tones, there is so much fun to be had with becoming a redhead and it is surprisingly adaptable to different skin tones.

For any colour or cut change, we recommend coming in with some reference pics and having a full consultation. While playing around with colours and cuts should be fun and adventurous, there are still some things to keep in mind, namely face shape, skin tone, upkeep and hair condition. When you are ready to make the change, you can rest assured that we are the best hairdressers near you providing the best cuts and the best colours in Sydney.
