Welcome to 2016! I love this time of the year. It’s a time for relaxing and enjoying a slower pace. You may still be on holidays, I know school kids still are, or you may be back at work, but it’s a great time of the year for planning, getting organised and recharging. We are enjoying a slower pace at the salon also. It has actually been really busy, but its just a different vibe compared to Christmas. We are loving that every second appointment someone is wanting a big change with their hair. This excites us hairdressers no end. We love to see the pictures you have brought into show us a new cut, or colour, and it is our job to help you achieve this. January is most definitely all about embracing change, and starting 2016 with a different approach, and there is no better way than to start with a new hair style.


I would like to talk to you about these changes and what you can expect if you need a big one! Whether it is black to blonde or blonde to vibrant red, there are some things you need to keep in mind when you are wanting a drastic change.


  1. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Sometimes it will take a few visits to achieve your look. We will help you enjoy each visit and its important that you embrace the process rather than feel impatient. The health of your hair is a priority for us, and even with structure complex treatments, its important to go in gently to ensure you get the look you want, rather than end up with dry, broken frazzled tresses.
  2. Cost involved. Whenever we are embarking on a large change, there are many, many factors that we need to take into consideration. Its not a case of picking a colour, throwing it on your hair and hoping for the best. It may be a process of removing colour (a few times), gently applying tone or filling and correcting existing colour. Each process will come with a pricetag, and rest assured these higher than normal hairdressing costs wont last forever! Keep in mind that some hair styles will need to be toned or recoloured every 4 weeks.
  3. Home care. For the best possible results, it is really important that you are looking after your hair at home. Readdressing your home care and making sure you are using the best products for your desired look will help the process have the best possible outcome. There is no point in spending hundreds of dollars in the salon to use a terrible quality shampoo and wash it all down the drain. Keeping this in mind, Natural Chique does not guarantee any of our work with out suitably prescribed home care.
  4. Realistic expectations. There are many things we can do, and there are many things that are just not possible. In an age where most pictures floating around are photo shopped, its really difficult to know what is real and achievable and what is not. We will always be honest with you.


If you are dreaming of a new style and if you are concerned about the cost, then our Signature Always Chique package maybe a great option. $149 per month is all you will need to invest in. No surprises, and as many visit and applications as you like. You would then be entitled to 15% off all home care and structure complex (blondpro). Feel free to chat to us about this option when you at your appointment.


We look forward to embracing change with you and helping you achieve your vision in 2016.
