Please note that on 29th August 2011, there was a story published by the Sydney Morning Herald and syndicated by The Morning Show on Channel 9 regarding the original Brazilian Blowout solution, this has no connection to Brazilian Blowout Zero that we offer in all our salons.
Brazilian Blowout Zero is a different product to Brazilian Blowout. Brazilian Blowout Zero is NOT a Keratin Treatment it is a Smoothing Treatment based on Amino Acid technology.
I love this girl!!!!!! She has become a great friend and when she calls I try and be there for her. I’m so happy and proud of my Megan ..this night she looked incredible, that hair and that red dress wow! …She is the new face of l’Oreal in Australian and Europe and they couldn’t have picked a better girl! Christine Rowe loves doing her hair colour and I just love being around her, always happy & extremely professional and totally respectful.
After a truly inspiring and courageous last twelve months battling cancer for OUR BEAUTIFUL Stav and his gorgeous wife Pia, they took a well deserved break! Off to Europe!
So glad to have our Stav happy and healthy! It’s the BEST feeling having him back working between the two salons!
I have always wanted to cut hair outdoors but never thought it would be possible- here on Brick Lane in London a salon has been set up against trees on a beautiful rare sunny day. Only 10 pounds for a mens cut too!! I didn’t feel brave that day…
Salon Manager Che -Daniel Macdonald and 2IC Faye Hatzimanolis

How do you find the right Stylist/Colourist for New Clients? I find what style/colour/technique & inspiration the client is looking for and pair up according to who I think would best deliver what the client has requested.

Senior Stylist - George Vasilaris
George you have been in the industry for a while and been with the company for over 13 years, how do you inject some excitement into your daily hairdressing ? By adding something different to every client that comes in. Giving a client a different blowdry, colour or treatment keeps you and the client more interested. I believe that if you don’t tweak your loyal and long standing clients they will go somewhere else for change - never play it safe - it’s hair!
What’s the biggest highlight in your career? I found my creative skill early on in my career and to this day I enjoy seeing the new generation of hairdressers come to learn their creativity. I enjoy being a mentor to the team at Salon X. There are good hairdressers and their are great hairdressers, we all work here at being great hairdressers.

Ultimately maintaining the hair condition is my priority, the balance of what clients want and what their hair can do is my job.

How should clients prepare before coming into the salon for a completely new look? The clients should bring along some pictures to show the feeling of what they want and ideas.

The internationally famous mens magazine Maxim has now opened their pages to the Australian men! Who better to feature on their first issue other than the sexy Jennifer Hawkins! I love working with her she is so sweet and so naturally sexy. Salon X’s colourist Sheree Knobel does her colour and it looks amazing all the time. I am sure this issue will walk off the shelves….
This week I was up in Cairns doing a seminar for GHD. I took my trusty assistant senior stylist Ash - Leigh with me to create editorial looks from the shows in London for Sass & Bide and some editorial looks. On a 7am flight we arrived at The Sebel in Cairns and we were loving! It was like we were on a movie set in Africa!. Straight to work at 1pm and we were greeted by an amazing GHD team of hairdressers to help back stage (Thanks guys!). I presented to a really receptive group of hairdressers and had a great mate of mine Lee Cohen from Reds Salon MC the event which was fun.
Throughout the year Valonz ‘s Elly Armitage and Chris Hunter and Renya Xydis City’s Nicole Sudjana travel around the country to educate stylists on achieving inspiration from GHD runway shows. Their last stop was Darwin where they created textural hair and strong lines. Love it!
It’s not all about editorial work for the team, we do an incredible amount of education for some of the leading haircare brands in Australia. Renya Xydis City’s editorial stylist Travis Balcke recently spoke in New Zealand for the Wella Trend Vision night and he introduced their new Care & Styling Range - along with Salon X’s Danielle Pusztay who assisted, they did a great job. The models he did looked fantastic - well done!
