Building a Superstar Team

Twisted has reached a turning point, again! This is one, I am very familiar with.  As I lean into the change, my team are a little excited (not nervous! Although the tummy butterflies are the same) for their new roles and responsibilities.  As our salon like takes this leap, two team members will feel it most:

  1. Docs is qualified, she has gathered the last of her evidence and theory to earn a Certificat in Hairdressing.  If you have ever been in her chair, you know how ready she is – I am so proud of the effort and attitude she has brought to the salon every day.
  2. Micaela has moved into a full-time position as our 1st-year apprentice.  You have probably met her already as she helped out around school commitments last year.  This gorgeous girl has committed to intensive training with me and has already started cutting hair, impressing me with her technique.

This is how I like to build my team, everyone moving along in their career, supported and encouraged to take the next steps.  I feel that hairdressing is often undervalued as a profession.  Both by the public and hairdressers themselves.  This is a profession like any other profession.  Both by the public and hairdressers themselves.  This is a profession like any other profession, hairdressers study for 4 years (sometimes more) to earn their qualification.  Just like an optometrist, mechanic or accountant.  They need a degree in psychology some days 🙂 and mix chemicals like scientists when correcting or personalising hair colour.  This is a qualification that is recognised globally and is completely recession-proof.  I believe a good hairdresser is important as a good doctor.  I know the difference between a good hairdresser or doctor, and an average one.  Education is the difference.  It builds confidence and it is never done.

I am confident that our team is empowered to deliver world-class hair.  Everyone is exactly where they should be and I am honoured to be mentoring them through their next level.

Winter Wowzers

Winter Wowzers

Well, the cooler weather will change your hairstyle – windswept, anyone?  A little drier?  Don’t start with me about static, everything I touch seems to zap me these days and those flyaway hairs are standing on end.

This is the time to add an extra deep conditioning hair mask to your routine or pop in for an indulgent treatment experience with us.  Our personalised hair masks will add shine and moisture.  We will dazzle you with a spine-tingling scalp massage, finished off with a hot towel wrap.  Your hair will be more manageable, touchable and super glossy.

Our apprentices are stopping traffic with their red carpet blow-dries that will continue through August at the reduced rate of $30.  So, if you need a recharge, treat yourself and say goodbye to bad hair days.

3 Easy Tips To Winter-Proof Your Hair

3 Easy Tips To Winter-Proof Your Hair

KYLIE AND KENDALL JENNER’S HAIRSTYLIST SHARES 3 EASY TIPS TO WINTER-PROOF YOUR HAIR

Love them or hate them, they always have great hair

With winter firmly upon us, our locks need a little extra TLC so they don’t turn dry, dull and withered thanks to all that time spent huddled over the heater. But what precisely should we do to winter-proof our hair? Vogue asked Colombini to share his best seasonal switch-ups, so the cool temps don’t rob us of our lustrous locks. Here, the celebrity stylist shares his three best weather-proofing tips.

Seasonal shampoo switch-up: “As the seasons change our beauty regimen should also change. During the winter our hair and skin tend to be the driest. Just as you would use a heavier face cream [in winter], our shampoo and conditioner should also be stepped up with extra moisture to keep or hair from getting dull.”

Stop seasonal breakage: “The number one reason we get hair breakage is colour processing and the number two is environmental. Depending on the degree of breakage I recommend any kind of protein building hair mask.”

Brighten up dull locks: “If you ain’t got shine it ain’t going to be shiny, so fake it until you make it. I love hair oil [to fake shiny tresses].”
