How to Shampoo and Condition
Wellington Hairdresser Tips

February 23 2016

One of the most common statements I hear from my clients is "I just can't get my hair to look like this at home!"  While this is might be because you have just had a fresh colour, or new cut, or a really firm blow dry, it could also be due to the hair products you are using - what you are currently using, and how are you using it.  This week I'll let you in on a few tips of how to make the most of your foundations - shampoo and conditioner.

Save Money and have Great Hair - Trumpcard

Happy New Year All!

WOW - end of January already!  Often the new year starts with a couple of big promises to one’s self.  Things like budgeting . . .  but also the 'looking after the me' factor (we all know that one - weight, exercise, grooming blah blah blah).  But so important!  We think that our new Trumpcard can help with great looking hair and keeping to your budget.

Then and Now: Hairstyles through the decades

Hairstyles Through the Decades - Wellington HairsalonIt’s always interesting to look back on the hairstyles,  hair fashions and fads of the past.  So this week I looked into popular hairstyles which occurred in the decades of the 20th century from the 1940s through to the early 2000s. It’s fascinating to see how much has changed! I’ve put together a brief compilation of some of the most iconic of these hairstyles. Check them out, I hope you enjoy :)

Try something different this summer - Hair Colour

Wellington Hair Colour

Hi everyone, I'm Jamie, the salon assistant you will see making your coffees and booking your appointments. I have just, in the last week, finished my double degree of Criminology and Sociology at Victoria University, VERY different from salon work! I enjoy working at the salon as allows me to learn a lot about hair and products and play around with colours, ranging from the brightest copper to warm red tones and even the full head of blonde foils (sorry hair!).

Tips and tricks to grow our your grey hair

Hairstyle for Windy Wellington by Tiesha - Wellington Hairdresser

Hi everyone,

I'm Tiesha, I came from Canada in March and started here at Shine around May.

I came from Alberta, where the climate is VERY dry, so deep conditioners and hairsprays were everyone's best friend. I noticed more of natural softer styles were in here in New Zealand, with the wind as well it's harder to have sleek or perfectly curled hair. So I started doing more beachy looks.

Ombre, Sombre and Balayage.  What's the difference?

Hi all, 

I hope everyone is having a nice week so far and enjoying those few nice days we've been getting so far!  My name is Pierce, I am a senior hairstylist at Shine Hair, hairdressers Wellington.  Originally I am from France.  I will talk today about the difference between Ombre, Sombre and my favourite ...Balayage!

Balayage Sombre Ombre Wellington Hairdressers

Well, with summer on its way, lots of you (ladies) wants to become a natural blonde (Yeah right!)

Let me share the way we do in France. In the different salons I have worked in, we hardly used foils!  French ladies prefer the natural look than the 'close to the roots' one! This is why we mainly do Balayage.  Balayage is also way better for the environment! No foils, no waste! (Happy Planet)

Lets go back to the comparison of ombre, sombre, balayage as I feel like many of you has been asking "What is the difference?"

Good on you, cos those styles are all very similar and can be a bit . . . confusing! Even for us!

Road Trip in the USA

September 17 2016

Hi, it's April, and this blog has nothing to do with hair or hairdressing in Wellington!

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been around the Wellington hair salon recently.  It's because a group of friends, hubby and I have been on a holiday together - a road Trip in the USA.  I've had a few requests for pictures, and I thought I was doing well getting the picture count lower than 100.  But would you believe I've been able to get it down to my top 10!  A hard task considering all I did while I was in the USA was listen to audio books, and TAKE THOUSANDS OF PHOTOS!

3 Hairstyling Tips from Zhana - Wellington Hairdresser

Hi guys, I'm Zhana Coral - (very) long time stylist at Shine Hair, Wellington hairdressers.  

Over the years, many of you have watched me go from red to blonde to blonder to green to orange to blue and back again. Currently I'm on my way back to blonde.

Firstly, as hairstylists, we are NOT immune from frizzy, frazzled, unmanageable hair that looks like a haystack - I PROMISE. Naturally, my hair is dry, wavy, and very frizzy and, with my love of colour change, I am now dealing with totally frazzled ends as well. Here is the list of things that keep me from shaving my head, and keep my hair from walking off of it on it's own.  So here's my tops tips for taking care of your hair:

Kimmie & Cezanne Hair Straightener

June 14 2016

Hi all

Wellington Hairdresser KimmieMy name is Kimmie, one of the new hairdressers at Shine Hair - Wellington Hairdressers.  I'm from Cape Town, South Africa.  I've been in Wellington for just about a year now.  I joined the team at Shine Hair Consultants & Design end of March 2016.

Cape Town can be just as windy as Wellington and the air is just as damp - not good for our hair having sea air all around us all the time.  Many of us love our hair to be straight and everyone loves manageable hair with minimal effort to maintain.
