December is very busy for us so this may be the last newsletter for the year.

Barry will be unavailable between Christmas and New Year. Debbie will be available one day only on Thursday 31st of December so if you want a do for New Year let us know!
We have added to the services now Lash Extensions! I love this new skill and find it exceptionally relaxing to do. They are great for special occasions and last up to 6 weeks depending on how well they are looked after. Mascara is not necessary when you have grafted lashes and use of mascara will affect how the duration of the lashes. Be aware that you will be laying down for at least an hour and a half so having coffee before hand is not recommended!! Initially the service takes 1 ½ hours but refills take ½ to ¾ of an hour. Refills must be done within 4 weeks of initial service to be classed as such.
Full lash extensions $90
Refill (3-4 weeks after) $45
Contraindications to this service are:
- People with allergies (latex specifically)
- Anyone suffering with claustrophobia
- Existing severely damaged natural lashes
- Any contagious condition of the eye eg. Conjunctivitis
- Anyone who is unable to maintain the lashes ie. Brushing them in place each morning
- Regular attendance at a hot sauna or swimming in hot water
- People who wear contact lenses as the lotion associated with the lenses breaks down the glue

Do you have split ends?? A new craze, which is an old one first made popular in South America in the 60’s involves using a candle flame to burn off split ends, it seems there are some problems which can occur when doing it and we have a more conventional method of taming those split ends which will not end in catastrophe!!!
New Trend for Spring
I know it’s early but surely we can start thinking about the warmer weather as the fruit trees are starting to bud 🙂 Bring on Spring!!!!
Tortoiseshell hair – Touted as ‘ombré’s moodier sister’ by London stylist and creator of the look Jack Howard, Tortoiseshell hair involves the freehand application of hues such as gold, chocolate, chestnut and honey. It’s been a hit this year, featuring on the A-list heads of Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Alba and Khloe Kardashian.
Our revolutionary NEW PRODUCT CUREPLEX for colour clients is a great success!!!
This system in other salons is normally an add on to colour client services and RRP is $55 but we have incorporated this into our lightening services for those that wish it and are offering it to clients for only $25 on top of your normal colour service!! This includes a FREE bottle of treatment to take home which normally retails at $29.95
Cureplex shields hair from chemical harm with no change in bleach, colour or treatment application.
Cureplex is your insurance with hair colouring, bleaching, highlighting, straightening, perming, balayage and ombre.
The Cureplex system consists of three stages and is made up of:
Bond Creator: Intermixed with the chemical service mixture, creates new bonds while protecting the existing internal structure. Improves the hairs strength and elasticity.
Bond Fortifier: Fortifying Rinse fuses newly formed bonds into the cortex while delivering added hydration and nourishment. Smooths the cuticle layer to create a uniform surface.
Bond Sustainer: A bi-weekly at home treatment that delivers emollients to enhance hair suppleness and impart shine.
Hello again and welcome to Winter and our late monthly email!
June Special: Mani $25 or Pedi $45 only
It has been a cold one so far but beautiful for the June racing in Swan Hill. It has been glorious weather for camping and generally getting outdoors into the garden. We are praying for rain though as things are dry!
I am still getting my head around the new email format and learning new skills but it is a slow process………
We hope the new calendar on the website is working well for everyone.
We are closed on Wed 17th of June but we can be flexible in our hours later that week so if anyone is inconvenienced please let us know. Check it out here on the website to see days we are operating.
Ballarat Festival was a hectic weekend again and the event was exceptionally well organized and attended. It seems the whole city gets into the spirit of these festivals. The models were great to work with and Charlotte Smith http://www.thedarnellcollection.com/ was a pleasure as usual. It is great experience doing makeup in an environment which is a great deal of pressure, period make up is fun and I love the research on different eyebrow shapes and shadow trends and combining that with lipstick trends.
Barry’s reunion in Melbourne was great. It was an evening of celebration and a few tears. A lovely bunch of people who made me feel very welcome. Have to admit though nightclubs are not that conducive to conversation so the next one is going to be a barbecue lunch. Much more civilized!! 🙂
