A Review: Kelp Hairdressing at Bondi Beach (c/0 Kelp Hairdressing) with Royal Aquamarine
As many of my readers have noticed by now, I have moved on from a chocolate brunette with bangs to a light auburn brown hair, blonde highlights and a side fringe. I really like this change, the colour is fresh and I can see my forehead and eyebrows.
Growing out my bangs has been a little awkward and when I walked into Kelp Hairdressing, the owner Roz knew exactly how to prep my hair for the latter stages of growing out my bangs.
Kelp Hairdressing is a Bondi Beach locally owned business run by Roz and has been around for over 20 years facing the iconic calm waters we call Bondi Beach. Rose is really friendly and very talented in her line of work, she takes the time and care to understand your hair history and then styles the hair to grow out beneficially in the future.
Roz works with iconic hair lines - Evo, REF., Moroccano and American Crew.
Roz worked some wonderful REF. shampoo and conditioner into my hair and because my hair has been dyed (and fried) she also applied a one minute Repair treatment. My hair came out refreshed and silky.
As Roz cut my hair, it was really relaxed and we talked about our jobs, the salon, and the local areas. Dogs and their owners walked past and Roz was so excited for each and every furry creature, that was fun.
Roz cut my bangs out skilfully, and explained to me that cutting my bangs section by section will teach it to grow out naturally and more shapely. I've never been told this advice before and it gave me hope. Roz then reshaped my hair. When it came to drying my hair, Roz suggested I go with some messy yet relaxed beach waves:
To do this she twisted my hair in sections and ran a hot blow dryer up and down. She kept the hair in a twist as she did the rest, to encourage more curl. Then going over the twisted sections with a hair dryer diffuser to create soft volume. When she let the curls loose, my hair sat in messy tossled waves - something I found hard to achieve back at home. I really loved it.
Vinson, owner of Royal Aquamarine sunglasses felt peckish so he went out to visit Bondi's Best Seafood and grabbed the best fish and chips I've ever had - crunchy chips with four generous servings of fish with a special batter. I highly recommend all foodie bloggers to make their way down there.
Kelp Hairdressing collaborates with some great Australian companies as well, such as Royal Aquamarine. Royal Aquamarine makes some amazing sunglasses that come in classic designs in beautiful shapes and colours and Kelp stocks their latest range. I tried on their sunnies as I showed off my new hair. And as a in-store special, Royal Aquamarine are offering $40 discount off any pairs of sunglasses with any haircut & blow-dry at Kelp Hairdressing. That is an amazing deal.
Thanks so much to Roz from Kelp Hairdressing and Royal Aquamarine. Not only did I walk out with an amazing haircut, I also had some great hair-education and sunglasses to go with it. <3
