Want to grow your hair

Jason Outten - Monday, July 20, 2020
Want to grow your hair ? Not cutting it until it gets to the right length ?

Unless you have the worlds most super healthiest hair ever with not a single split......
not cutting is the long way to grow your hair

You need to cut it regularly so it can be long.
Dead hair doesn’t grow, that’s the desperate attempt of girls clinging onto 10cm’s of split ends because they don’t want short hair ...

Although split ends do grow, all the way up your hair shaft if you don’t get your hair cut often enough.
If you imagine hair grows an average of a 1cm a month (no don’t imagine, it does) Now if you have a
4mm split but at your regular haircut visit it is removed.You’ll gain half a c in growth. Healthy growth. If you don’t the split gets higher

Then what we see is the clients who have not had their hair cut all year saying “because i’m growing it”
Then needing 6” cut off because the ends are such a split mess What a waste of a years growth

Its happening again. Perth hairdressers

Jason Outten - Monday, July 13, 2020
Its happening again. Perth hairdressers

People booking disappointment appointments ....... basically booking a technique not a result. Inspired by the latest YouTube vid
or that stand out tutorial they just googled

This hair did not happen by guessing ;)

I want to be blonde. I’ll book foils

I don’t want maintenance. I’ll book a scalp bleach .... yep its been said.

Short hair love...and we picked the technique

More people are calling to book an appointment but booking the technique.
Especially booking foils. 30% on further questioning will not achieve what they want with what they have requested to book.
But get frustrated when we try and advise correctly

The main one being foils. People see regrowth and just want what they can see fixed.

You will not achieve this by booking just a half head foils

The part and hairline. But thats a technique for an in between your main appointment. Not your main.
This is when you start getting banding, unwanted tones and all of a sudden “why’s my hair so dark at
the back” & “why did this appointment cost more” ?
..... maybe the 6” regrowth at the back

The other category is wanting a change or something different without a consultation.
Like colouring your hair dark brown for years and now wanting a light blonde ash balayage look.
First question is for an appointment, next is “how much” ...... If anyone can answer that feel free as we have no idea from a phone call.
Thats why we are happy not to take a booking when expectations are not reality

This was not happening without enough time and a plan

Not sure what you need ? Think you know what you need ? Give us a call, we’re happy to help and guide wherever possible.
But please remember some questions we just cannot answer without all the information we need first.

7 hours. That's correct, this took 7 hours. Not achievable in a standard booking

Have more hair than you need ? Donate it

Jason Outten - Monday, July 13, 2020
Have more hair than you need ? Donate it

It can always grow back. Something most take for granted. Others are not so fortunate, but we can all help

Did you know we only need 20cm of hair to be able to donate for someone less fortunate. It is collected, sorted and then distributed to wig makers via Sustainable Salons Australia. It doesn’t even need to be natural, colours ok

Any hair that does not meet the 20cm length is used to fill hair booms. Whats a hair boom ? They are distributed into oil slicks as
hair is one of the best known fibres to soak up oil spills, and you can even drain the oil back out and still use

So we thank you all as each and every salon visit a green fee of $2 makes up part of your bill.
This goes to Sustainable Salons Australia to allow them to do what they do. As it doesn’t stop there.

They collect all our paper, plastic, chemicals and metals. Next time you get your hair foiled isn’t it nice to know that the funds raised from your hair foil recycling goes towards meals via OzHarvest

Next time you see your local council spraying down the dust with water as they build a new road. That water was our waste colour, recycled
The plastic furniture you’re sitting on or those sunglasses you’re wearing could of been our old shampoo bottles

....and the list goes on

So each and every time you’re getting your hair done by us. You’re doing a lot more than just looking amazing, you can feel it too..... and thank you

Short hair is not short hair

Jason Outten - Monday, June 15, 2020
Short hair is not short hair

Do you want a barber style haircut or a haircut? Whats the difference?
Well if there was no difference why is there short haircut workshops and barber haircut workshops.
Why are they two different modules at college ?

Haircut only today, softly layered and feathered into neck line. No harsh angles or lines

Because they are obviously different. Unfortunately in this world of people looking to get offended the
obvious tends to get blurred and no one wants to state the obvious. So here is the obvious.

A ladies haircut is cut different to a mans haircut. They are two different looks and are taught two different ways.
Because they cannot be cut the same unless you want the same looking haircut

Again another softly blended haircut plus some eye popping colour

A short feminine haircut. Softer lines, feathered neckline. An all over softer look. Looks easy enough ?
Unfortunately some hairdressers apply “just a short haircut” to “every” short haircut. Too block like.
Harsh lines with square edges and finishes

On top of the haircut we have some clean blonde foils to make it pop. This cut a little longer in length, but still short

You need to be able visualise and feel the hair while starting to mould into the finished look. Not just cut the length off 

A stunning short bob haircut featuring a half head of foils....and no toner required. Ever

Real clients, real appointments for real people. We do hair
Every picture you see in this post is of our clients, regular people. We don't have a book of "house models" who's hair we do
just for SM pics.

Look how beautiful this haircut sits. Lets not forget the colour which is a combination of foils and base colour.
Something only a professional can achieve. Way more eye catching and healthier than a flat straight through box brown.

What type of salon are we

Jason Outten - Sunday, May 24, 2020
What type of salon are we ?

To some that maybe a strange question. To others its obvious

What do we mean ?
Well we love hair. We love seeing amazing results. But we also love being able to help you maintain those results and have
the time to achieve those results.

But we can only do so much. We can make the time, and we can achieve the results. If you make the time, plan and have
realistic goals

We’re not the best salon for the person that wakes up wanting a complete colour change that day. (Unless you want black)
We’re not the salon for that person that changes their mind last minute and leaves us with hours booked out and nothing to do

But if you’re the person that wants to be looked after. Have your Hair journey planned, your maintenance taken care of,
and know that no matter what you’re wearing its not looking great unless your hair is. Then you know we’re that salon

What brings most people to us is word of mouth and those amazing images all over Google + our Social Media.
They’re also our clients. Real people with real results. We don’t use influencers, and we don’t have a back up
of models to make our social media look pretty. That’s not us. Our social media is about what we achieve every day in our salon with real people. Real time frames, realistic expectations and booked appointments

So if you’ve been flip flopping around salons and now need us to fix your hair today. Or you just get too busy to sort out your
appointments and cancel or change on your hairdresser last minute all the time. Don’t call us, we’re not that type of salon

Keratin Smoothing. What do we mean

Jason Outten - Sunday, April 05, 2020
Keratin Smoothing. What do we mean by "up to 80% reduction in volume, frizz and curl" ? THIS!

See the before on left is the naturally dried before our smoothing service and the right is naturally dry after our smoothing service.

Not all keratin smoothing is the same. Its like any service. A haircut, A hair colour. Some places do them better than others.
We just do ours extremely well and have the reviews and feed back to support it.

If you think keratin does not work on your hair, or does not work. You just had the wrong person doing it.

We currently have a new Keratin client intro available valid with Louise. It is $352 including the shampoo + conditioner to take home.
That's saving most people over $200. Normal booking conditions apply. Contact salon for further information.

The ColorWOW Dream Regime

Jason Outten - Sunday, March 15, 2020
The ColorWOW Dream Regime
The range that will crystal clean your hair. Repair up to 50% of your hair damage while adding volume (only if needed) and moisture.
Leaving soft, de frizzed and shiny while lasting up to three shampoos .....WOW


Metals and minerals found in tap water build up on the hair, leaving behind a film that dulls, darkens and stains colour.
Some products also build up on the hair affecting colour and hair condition.

Dream filters break through technology works like a magnet to remove these minerals in under 3 minutes. Effective on all hair and colour types.
Especially lighter colour and high lights which are more susceptible to discolouration.


Most shampoos are loaded with unnecessary additives that are nothing to do with cleansing and do not easily rinse off.
Colour security shampoo delivers the ultimate dream clean because it is uniquely formulated.


A lot of conditioners can make the hair look dark, distorted or brassy. They can weigh the hair down and look greasy.
Colour Security conditioners are formulated with 6 translucent conditioning agents that will not oxidize, corrupt colour and turn brassy.

Available for fine, normal to thick hair

Three different formulations for three different concerns. That can all be used on the same head of hair. Flat roots, dry mids and damaged ends. No problem just zone apply.
Don't have that many concerns, easy just use what you need where you need

Carb Infused for volume

Dream Cocktail for moisture

Kale infused for strength

Dream Coat

Check out our Dream Coat blog Here > BLOG


That's right. Specially formulated just for curly hair

ColorWow DreamCoat

Jason Outten - Sunday, March 08, 2020
ColorWow DreamCoat

Virgin Hair with Dream Regime service, finished with DreamCoat by ColorWow

How to get Ultimate Results.
Dreamcoat is an amazing product but you need to use it correctly or you won’t achieve the results or even notice a difference.

First. What does it do ?
It seals the hair reducing the frizz and is humidity resistant. Plus it lasts three shampoos if done correctly.
It will not effect your colour either. You’ll experience increased shine, softness, better manageability and reduced frizz for up to three shampoos.

How to use correctly ?
You apply to damp hair (NOT Wet)
It is the last product you put in your hair before drying. Yes you can use with other products.
You HAVE TO blow dry it in with tension for it to work. Ironing afterwards ads to the effect but will NOT do without the correctly drying it in.

Now here is THE KEY element.
This was instructed and explained by ColorWow educators. It WILL NOT work correctly unless you use a “wooden bristle brush”
Why ?
Because regardless of what people say and think YOU CANNOT get the tension and smoothness a wooden bristle can achieve with a ceramic brush.

Real Brushes available in salon. This is style brush required. YOU WILL NOT GET CORRECT RESULTS WITH A METAL OR NON BRISTLE BRUSH

As all our stylists are trained and already use this type of brush we’re achieving amazing results

You are wasting your time and money if you just blast dry or leave to dry naturally.
But remember you only have to blow dry in correctly every 4th shampoo.

Curly hair ? No problem we stock Curly ColorWow too.

Coloured Kaaral Copper hair finished with ColowWow Dreamcoat

We also have take home
DreamCoat + Wooden Bristle brush packages

The whole Dream Regime take home range will also be available as a package.
Contact salon for details

Oh WOW Colour Correction. PINK HAIR

Jason Outten - Monday, March 02, 2020
Oh WOW  Colour Correction. PINK HAIR

....and only 5 hours

This colour always generates a lot of interest. Its fun, its bright and looks AMAZING ... want to know how to achieve ? Keep reading. Right to the end

So then the enquirIes roll in “how much”
So here’s an honest response “how are we meant to know how much “ ?

We cannot see your hair
We do not know its history
We do not know its condition
We do not know what has been on it
We don’t even know how thick or long it is

But do you know that if we said that over the phone we would get a response something like “oh its past my shoulders, only had brown in it and not very thick.
So how much” ?

That’s basically describing a large % of most peoples hair yet they would all require different approaches once we had physically seen the hair.

Would you like to know that this client has been coming to us for two years. Changes her colour at every appointment.
Does not know if we will be able to do at one appointment or if it needs more and understands that we cannot give an exact price as
it all depends on how long it will take. Which we don’t know until its finished.

These results always work best with realistic clients

This time took 5 hours. Some 4, some 6. Once we had to make a choice, change to something else or come in another time as already
5 hours and it will take a lot more to achieve as only half way.

So this type of look/fashion colour requires a physical in salon consultation. You’ll be given an idea of what is required and realistic expectations.
Often we will base an appointment on a guesstimated appointment time frame

This is because of the unknown factor of how well your hair lightens, and unless you’re already Platinium blonde it has to be lightened.
Virgin hair lightening is easier than if coloured but still takes a while

The biggest thing we hear a lot of is “my hair lightens easy so shouldn’t take long”
Lightening “easy” and lightening to level for a fashion colour like this are two different things.

Best advice

Organise a consultation. Get a clearer picture of what maybe required for YOUR hair and you’ll be a lot better informed.
Because we haven’t even touched on maintenance yet

Color WOW Dream Coat

Jason Outten - Monday, February 24, 2020
Color WOW Dream Coat

Think we kind of nailed the finish here.... or maybe the whole colour and cut too

Yes we used Kaaral colour all the way from Italy with that coconut infused moisture.. and Olaplex
Then we used ExhairCare No Knots to detangle and treat followed by straightening cream + Diamond Drops™️

.....Finally we added the new Color WOW Dream coat....and OMG ... But this stuff walks off the shelf ....But it’s back in stock this week
We suggest you pre order. Just in case We feel its that popular it will be a while before supplier can keep up with demand

....and sorry to disappoint some but there is no filters used. Ever. We can literally see why they called it WOW

Please note the spelling of the word "colour" is shown as "color" as that is the actual name and an American product
