Brazilian Blow Out Zero

Description goes here...

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.

Brick Lane London

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

Che what makes for a great day in the salon? A great day in the salon is when all my staff are on, the salon is full, the music is pumping, there is interactive conversations across the floor, the work leaving the salon is HOT! People are walking past feeling the energy exploding out the door.

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.

How do you inspire your team Faye? I always try to be positive and give the best customer service that I can give. When I am doing my job to the best of my ability then I feel that my team will follow.

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.

Senior Stylist Nic Platsis

What do you most enjoy about being a hairdresser? Doing a beautiful haircut on a client and them loving it

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.
