OCTOBER JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT ROSIER

OCTOBER JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT ROSIER

This is our latest blooming campaign that is featured in this month’s Australian Vogue magazine.

I guess you could say that our inspiration derives from those plump velvety rich roses that you see in an established garden.

These roses are old worldly and rich in pastel pigments and far cry from today’s bright coloured manufactured roses.

Think here pink parfait, peach, sugar baby, bourbon, mint, blue silk, antique lavender, and whipped cream just to name the very few hues we’re channeling.

Are you smelling the same rose garden we are now?

Our aim for this campaign and salon clients was playing with our colour palates, and really watering down the strength the colour pigments.

The word “diluted” is definitely our holly grail here and not thinking like your wanting to join the loud bright circus when it rolls into town.

Our mind set when a client is sitting at the colour bar and wants some kind of “difference” but, still something that is fashion forward and soft which is always our goal set and also working with each clients skin complexion to match.

We’ve had fun introducing these ultra-soft velvety pastels tones that, work beautifully from brunettes to blondes and coppers are just another scale of so much fun that can be had.

There really are no limits of how little or how much you want your new hues to highlight, as it all comes down to the placement of the application when the colour is painted on by the hair colourist.

The end result is if you restrict your hair into a sleek braid or clean ponytail your colour will look tame and quiet.

When you have your hair out and showcasing the length and thickness, your velvety rose shades will be at full maximum impact of what lays beneath.

Have a great month RAW fans and feel free to ask us any questions about your next rose shade.

SEPTEMBER’S RAW TEXTURE IS AIRY

SEPTEMBER’S RAW TEXTURE IS AIRY

Spring is finally in the air so it’s time to shed that Winter hair don’t you think?

This is our latest fresh campaign that is featured in this month’s Australian Vogue magazine.

What we wanted to capture with beautiful Lily’s hair is the feeling and essence of an “airiness” if you will which promotes texture.

I think consumers can be a little put off by layering one length hair as, its kind of like a security blanket but what’s not happening here is that lightness and texture at the same time.

The beauty about long hair like Lily’s is that you can still rejoice your long prized mane and from now you can introduce some light texture (layers) throughout the interior only.

What we really love about this haircut also is Lily’s airy soft textured bangs.

The secret to cutting these bangs is by using a razor and a sharp one at that and on this note RAW fans, please don’t try this at home cause you might end up accidentally nicking your face…..  #HaircutGoneWrong.

Here are some key points to recreating our Spring hair and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

  1. First things first and make sure you ask your hairstylist for some “airy” texture.
  2. On damp hair maximize your new found texture with a medium hold foam and scrunch this in.

 

Yes scrunch.

Don’t comb the foam through evenly from roots to ends like the regular predicable times as we want a more haphazard lived in texture.

 

  1. Attach the diffuser to the end of the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer and using a circular motion all over till 90% dry.

The diffuser encourages the natural texture which is vital as there’s no powerful air blowing your strands everywhere.

OUR TOP TIP – Give your brushes a well-earned rest here and dry only with your fingers lifting your strands for volume and movement.

WHEN YOU’RE CRAVING THE BEST HAIR SALON SYDNEY FOR TEXTURE

HAIR – Anthony Nader

Hello RAW fans & hope you’re all keeping dry and warm today.

We just wanted to show you our latest shoot which came out in July issue Vogue.

It’s masses of waves topped up with volume & cool texture for good measure.

It’s important when you want to achieve & enhance your natural texture, is by using a diffuser which we absolutely love.

The beauty about the diffuser is that you only get the heat distribution & not all that air, blowing your hair strands around like you’re in a wind tunnel.

Here’s how we got the look for our latest campaign for our best hair salon Sydney.

  1. On damp hair apply your volumizing product from roots to ends.
  2.  Shake out the excess moisture up to 80% with your hairdryer so your arms don’t get tired.
  3. Rake your strands through from roots to ends with a wide tooth comb.
  4. Attach your 385 Parlux Diffuser on the end of your Parlux hairdryer
  5. Now use circular movements all over your head & making sure your scrunching up your hair into your palms to give that extra oomph.
  6. Then always finish with 30 seconds of the cool shoot button on the hairdryer, as this sets the hair shape into place which gives more longevity……you have to give this trick a whirl Best Hair Salon Sydney readers.

THE BEST HAIR FROM THE MET GALA 2014

Anthony Nader splashes out on who are the Met Gala 2014 Ball Red Carpet Hair Winners in vogue.com.au

The hair looks that turned up on the red carpet for the Met Ball’s 2014 gala, in celebration of couturier Charles James, were in styles as varied as the gowns being celebrated. Here we profile our favourites and tell you how to re-create key looks.

Hair down

Red carpet waves are a consistently elegant look and were embraced by Dree Hemingway, Georgia May Jagger and Riley Keough. If you’re recreating the look for a special occasion be prepared to touch up throughout the night, as you would your makeup. Hair authority Anthony Nader says he advices clients to take a travel size hair spray in their clutch for the night. “When needed they can give any nasty flyaways a once over in the powder room.”

For Dree Hemingway’s Hollywood ringlets Nader says:

1. On damp hair squeeze a good size tennis ball size of firm hold foam into your palms and work through your hair from roots to ends, rake through and shake dry 80% with your hairdryer.

2. Create a deep side part then take four equal sections. Take three-inch sections starting from the nape area with your large round bristle brush and stretch sections upwards all the way up to the crown area. Do the same with the front sections.

3. Using velvet hot rollers, take horizontal sections parallel to your part line and wind the rollers under from top to nape area. Let them set and cool for longevity.

4. Once cool, unravel the rollers and brush the curls to create volume. Give hair a once over with hairspray.

Soft wave

A romantic take on glamour in the form of soft waves was favoured by Kim Kardashian, Gisele Bünchden and Victoria Beckham.

Short hair

A swathe of celebrities have gotten the chop of late and worked their shorter strands into elegant styles for the Met red carpet. Oscar Oscar master stylist Jacky Chan says the important thing to remember is to choose a complementary style. “Hair always needs to complement the dress and styling. If the dress is romantic and feminine, waves and pincurls always look beautiful and elegant, or if the dress is modern and structured sleek styling is best,” says Chan. His top tip? “Less is more with shorter styles.”

Deep side part

Lily Cole, Cara Delevingne and Emily Cole chose the flattering effect of a deep side part and waves.

Plaited

Kristin Stewart and Joan Smalls chose to plait their tresses for a fresh take on red carpet dressing.
