My hair is important to me.

It changes the way I feel about myself, it illustrates a message about who I am to others (you can tell a looot about someone if they take some time out of their morning to style their hair, or not..) and I CANNOT stress how important it has been for me to find my perfect go-to salon. Let’s be honest.. the world is saturated with some pretty questionable ones – it’s absolutely vital to find the best one, with the best stylists, for the best price, with the most convenience.

So recently, I stumbled upon THE CUT.

With an insta-chic interior (hello plush velvet squabs and the marble benchtop!), basin massages and a tempting hair service menu, this no-appointment-necessary salon offers cuts, hair treatments and blow-waves to busy gals on the go, all at a reasonable price point. While we’re either hustling at uni or putting all of our time and energy into our first big girl job, there’s never been a salon more convenient for us fabulously busy millennials!

Opening their first doors within my locale at Sylvia Park mall, Co-Founder Frana Evans says that the philosophy behind THE CUT is for each customer to have a positive experience in a luxe setting, without the premium.

I was lucky enough to have a chat with Frana about her hair trend predications for the season ahead, here are her stylist words of wisdom:

“Textured, choppy layers will be a massive trend for those wanting to achieve a full-bodied, roughed-up, rocker look.  Bangs are back too, though in a way we haven’t seen for some time.  Skip your styling tools and let your fringe be free to create a cool, grungy look that is cutting edge.

The mid-length chop, the ‘lob’ (long bob) continues to be in-vogue this season.  It’s a collarbone length cut that suits almost all face shapes and hair types.  Fine hair will benefit from the no-layered look, as it helps the hair to appear thicker and elongates the neck.

From a styling perspective, the classic blow-wave is our go-to at THE CUT.  When done right, the blow-wave provides smooth, bouncy volume and a glossy finish that is forever chic, no matter your hair type.”

I’m yet to gather up the courage to point my wee forehead up to Frana and let her work her magic to create the bangs of my dreams, however, my secret to maintaining an impressive and consistent aura of self confidence with 10/10 personal presentation is to spend that little bit of extra cash each week on a beautiful blow wave!

Trust me guys, it’ll be the new highlight of your week.
