We are excited to bring on board Muk Haircare.

Muk is an exciting Australian owned professional haircare brand. Founded in Melbourne (Australia) in 2006, muk embarked on a journey to develop a brand that went against the trend of other haircare brands. Their vision was to create a range that not only outperformed market leaders but grabbed the imagination and attention of a saturated marketplace constantly bombarded with ‘scientific’ jargon and magical claims.

muk launched its first product ‘Hard muk’ in late 2006. With just one product, muk became an overnight success. With its brightly coloured aluminium packaging, cheeky product names and provocative advertising, the brand was on everyone’s lips. Ten years later, they have become a market leader in professional haircare in Australia, a favourite with consumers worldwide and international distribution in nineteen countries.

With 34 core range products, 5 specialised Argan Oil products and 6 best selling electrical tools, the brand caters to the hair needs of everyone.

muk is not just about great products. It’s a culture, a lifestyle and an attitude.
And more importantly they are a 100% independent, Australian owned brand.

All muk products are PETA approved.

Bob’s are back

Bob’s are back, but whatever you do, do not follow fashion as it’s a load of cobblers. Short blunt fringes with an edge will set the trend around the East. These haircuts are great and you will stand out from the crowd if it is cut right. They are sharp, sexy, can be worn by either a female or male and are certainly a statement about yourself. Watch out they don’t make your face rounder or longer. If you have a round face, whatever you do, make sure they don’t cut the length to your chin or cheekbones. Get the length going past your chin so that it flats out your face and certainly not a wild square fringe. Saying that though, who am I to say what is best!

Hot off the press for Mr. Bond’s latest wicked styling products for the one and only, YOU!  Get yourself De Lorenzo Sandstorm for that beached matted hair. It’s the perfect product without any build up and easy to reshape your hair.  There’s another cool product for those days when the end of your hair needs some tender love from either a haircut or by applying this amazing product called, ‘Murray’s Olive Oil…It’s my next big thing at present with hair play. Only apply a tiny amount on the tips of your fingers, rub it into your hands and apply from ends to ends.

I have been working on a film set lately, cannot share which one, but It’s been rather fun for me considering, I am the only one in my business, and now working with over 20 hair and makeup artist, being feed lots of interesting stuff through their knowledge working in the film and TV industry…I have now got my foot in the door, so to speak.

I cannot believe it’s Feb already and before we know it, March on our doorsteps. So let’s get cracking on with our hair and have a change of heart and find yourself a new hairdresser, Me. Put your car keys in the bowl, pick up your phone and call me. I might take a few hours to reply to the call – as I am most probably with a client for a few hours, but don’t stress if your the sort of person who likes things done straight away, you will be hearing from me by the time the day is up and guess what? You’ll love my business. So what are you waiting for??

Mum’s Postpartum Hair Loss

I get this question asked all the time with new mums, “My hair is falling out by the clumps of it after having the baby, is this normal”? Many new mums are surprised to find themselves shedding more hair than usual in the first few months after giving birth, but it’s perfectly normal. And there’s no need to panic: You won’t go bald. In fact, your hair should be back to normal by your baby’s first birthday. Yep, it could take a whole year, so do not stress. I haven’t even had kids and all my hair fell out! Here’s what’s going on. Normally, about 85 to 95 percent of the hair on your head is growing and the other 5 to 15 percent is in a resting stage. After the resting period, this hair falls out – often while you’re brushing or shampooing it and is replaced by new growth. An average woman sheds about 100 hairs a day. During pregnancy, increased levels of oestrogen prolong the growing stage. There are fewer hairs in the resting stage and fewer falling out each day, so you have thicker, more luxuriant tresses.

After you give birth, your oestrogen levels take a tumble and a lot more hair follicles enter the resting stage. Soon you’ll have more hair coming out in the shower or on the brush. This unusual shedding will taper off and your hair will be back to its pre-pregnancy thickness about six to 12 months after you give birth. By the way, not all women notice dramatic changes in their hair during pregnancy or the postpartum period. Among those who do, it tends to be more obvious among women with longer hair.

You won’t be able to stop the hair from falling out, but you can experiment with different hairstyles or products (such as hair thickeners or mousse) to give your hair a fuller look during this transition period.

Many mums, tired of scooping hair out of shower drains or sweeping strands off the bathroom floor, find that now is a good time to go for a shortcut. Plus, a short, wash-and-go hairstyle can be easier to take care of when you have a new baby in the house and you’re strapped for time.

A note to new mums with long hair: Strands of hair can end up tightly wrapped around your baby’s tiny appendages, including his fingers, toes, wrists, ankles, and penis. This is called a hair tourniquet, and it can be quite painful for your little one. If you find him crying for no apparent reason, check carefully for tight bands of hair.

Love Tho Hair

Welcome to the first important month of the year for your hair as it’s drying out wanting your love of hair moisturisers. Yep, believe it or not, the sun is an extreme hair burner and if you’ll applying skin lotion, then why not hair lotion too. Hats, scarfs and lots of hair moisturisers for this January. Be brave and wear the biggest hats as not only does it protect your hair, more importantly, face and neck too. Silk scarfs are great too. Now for the important part, hair. You don’t need to buy expensive products. Keep it simple and make sure you apply the moisturisers well into the hair shaft. Coconut oils are great summer hair. Best applied to the beach as it coats the hair shaft adding plenty of moisture and feeds the hair. Use the same one you cook with. Argen oils are good too. Check the tips out. If you’re in and out of the ocean, tie your hair up with a band and apply a gel over the rest of hair or a soft wax, just for that added protection or if you are game enough and want to stand out on Bondi Beach, check these cool swim-hats. Best book yourself a hair appointment at and get those ends trimmed and an Olaplex hair treatment so that you maintain healthy hair throughout the Summer months.
