Preparation

Bicarb Wash

At Bright Eyes Hairdressing & Day Spa we aim to give you the results you love from your colours, foils, perms and chemical straightens. Unfortunately, some products contain parabens, sulphates, silicons and other harsh chemicals. If you have not been using salon quality hair products, recommended to you by a hairdresser, you may have a build up on your hair. This can make your hair dull, knotty and difficult to manage and very difficult to colour. It can also affect the quality of results that you will get from your salon visits.

We recommend that you remove any residue that you may have on your hair with this easy remedy:

1 cup of bi-carb soda

2-3 tablespoons of salon quality shampoo

enough hot water from the kettle to make a thick paste

(double the mixture if you have very long and thick hair)

Method:

Shampoo your hair once with salon quality shampoo.

Towel dry and apply the mixture evenly through and work into your hair gently.

Wrap your hair in cling film and leave to process for 20 minutes.

Rinse your hair thoroughly.

Shampoo again and condition with salon quality conditioner

Special Occasion Hair

The night before your event shampoo your hair three times and condition only the mid lengths and ends.

Gently towel blot your hair without excessive rubbing.

Apply a light conditioning serum to the mid lengths and ends and comb through.

Apply 6 pumps of White sands firm hold from roots to ends and blow dry your hair smooth with a paddle brush. DO NOT curl or straighten your hair.

You’re welcome to make an appointment the day before your event and we can complete your hair preparation for you.

Special Occasion Make Up

In the weeks leading up to your event please keep your skin well exfoliated and moisturised. If you need help or advice, please let us know.

Drink at least 2 litres of water per day.

Arrive at the salon with clean skin with a light moisturiser applied.

Spray Tan

Your tan should be booked for 24 to 72 hours before your event.

On the day of your tan, exfoliate your whole body well. DO NOT apply any moisturiser, deodorant, perfume or other products to your skin. Wear loose fitting, dark clothing.

To maintain your tan, wash your skin with a gentle cleanser and moisturise every day with a good body lotion or a tan extender such as Sun Escape gradual tan extender.
