So I’m a redhead! What do you think? My hair has been through a lot over the last month and I have some fun hair colour stories to share with you next week. Let’s just say my hair goes through a lot anyway! After some red hair encouragement on Instagram I decided to just do [...]


Hair Romance - the colour mullet - party colours underneath

I just got my hair done and I have a mullet. No, not a mullet haircut! That is never coming back. EVER. But the “business in the front, party at the back” hairstyle has been reinvented with colour. I had my hair done by the fabulous Stevie of Stevie English Hair and this time I [...]

Hair Romance - bright multi colour hair

I’ve been slowly stepping into ginger territory with my hair and my hair colour is now more of a strawberry blonde. After an amazing lunch at Lucio’s on Wednesday (which I’ll tell you more about soon) I went to see Stevie English Hair and I let Stevie do what he does best. Even better, the [...]


Best lipsticks for redheads

Changing your hair colour affects more than just your locks. You need to consider changing your wardrobe and makeup too.

Whether you were born a redhead, or have decided to take the plunge into [...]

Ok, I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I’m not going to chicken out (again). You see, I’ve been talking about changing my hair for a while now. I used to change it every appointment but now I’m blogging it has stayed almost the same for three years. The only difference is that it’s longer. [...]

I snapped Glynis Trail-Nash outside the Oroton show at MBFWA and I haven’t edited this photo at all. Her red locks are her signature. She was standing in the perfect patch of sunshine to make her hair glow like it was on fire. When you go for a colour this bright, make sure you use colour [...]



Hairstyle inspiration from the street from Hair Romance. Balayage and ombre hair colour is still popular but I rarely see red to blonde balayage. The focus is always on brunette to blonde but it’s so striking in red. To me it resembles flames going from a deep dark red to blonde tips. When I saw this [...]



Taylor Tomasi-Hill has kept her hair salon a secret for years. I met the street style star backstage at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia where she was hard at work as the stylist for the Oroton debut show. Of course the conversation turned to hair. I told Taylor it was a good idea to keep [...]

I’m constantly impressed with the standard of Australian hairdressing. I really believe that Australian hairdressers receive superior training as there is such a rigid apprenticeship and training programme that lasts three years (only recently reduced from four years).
