Recycling @Esstudiogalleria

Recycling is becoming more and more important everyday, getting rid of toxic waste and reusing raw materials allows us to preserve the environment. Esstudio continues to work on ways to improve how we recycle and continue to find new ways we can help as a salon. Where Esstudio has begun recycling is through recycled furniture, foils, and working with Sustainable Salons.

RECYCLED FURNITURE 

Almost all the studio’s furniture is recycled from vintage and antique stores, Esstudio’s most unique piece is the famous chandelier in the centre of the salon, known as the heartbeat of the salon, Aleks found it at an antique shop in South America and believes it was the inspiration for the studio. Jax and Aleks used recycled furniture in the studio to not only build character, but by purchasing recycled furniture you are helping to preserve the rainforest where they take materials from to build new furniture. 

PAPER NOT FOILS
When working in a salon you realise the amount of waste and money that goes into using aluminum foil in every individuals hair. Which is why Esstudio looked into reusable paper foils, these foils aren’t just any foils, Paper foils are 100% reusable made from mineral paper created from recycled industrial waste, and can be used again and again as they are rinsed, dried, and ready to go.

SUSTAINABLE SALONS 
Sustainable Hair Salons is an organisation who rescues up to 95% of toxic resources within Salons, these resources include chemicals, hair, metals, paper, plastic, razors, tool. The company created separate bins which the salons use to separate these resources to then be collected on a fortnightly basis by Sustainable Salons, who find ways to use these for bettering the environment.

Some of the ways the recycling is transformed is plastic being recycled into outdoor furniture, or chemical which are normally tipped down the drain are collected and sent to recycling plants to then be transformed into recycled water. Director Aleks says“ At a salon almost everything goes to waste, even hair… if all it takes is for us to use different bins for what we are already throwing out, why not help where we can!”

Another huge part of their organisation is individuals  donating their hair to make wigs for those suffering from alopecia areata or cancer, taking 20cm ponytails contributes to making wigs for these brave people. Here at Esstudio we have a lot of individuals come in for the chop and love to  encourage people to donate their ponytails when coming in for a haircut as it goes to such a great cause!

A few weeks ago Luke came in and had this hair cut off to be donated, and the process was awesome!

4 COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS -PART 1

WILL THIS SUIT ME?

The question “ will this suit me? ” does not just revolve around the colour suiting your skin, but it can also revolve around suiting your lifestyle, and even finances. When deciding on a hair colour you want a great way to decide whether or not it will suit you is by looking at your veins.  Your veins or skin are usually either blue which means that you suit cooler toned colours, or you have green veins which means you suit warmer tones. Whether or not a colour will suit you also revolves around your lifestyle, do you have time to maintain bright pink hair, allowing time for regular salon appointments if you don’t want it to grow out, and spend the money on quality products that will look after your hair and keep it from becoming damaged.  

 

WHAT IS A TONER?

Toner is the icing on the cake, leaving your hair looking delicious. Essentially a toner is the colour applied to your hair, the second chapter of the colouring process, it alters the undertone and removes any brassy or unwanted colours in your hair, leaving it to look fabulous.     

 

                                                                   

CAN I GET A SIMILAR PRODUCT AT THE SUPERMARKET?

It is very hard to find the same quality products at the supermarket. Hair Salons hold brands and products they trust and believe in, working with these products they see positive results and know they are high quality. It is often that the brands and products which are used and sold at hair salons are only sold at salons. This is due to those brands being dedicated to helping and showing support to hair salons, it gives salons constant customers coming in for products,  and may also come in for a service while they are in, and therefore helping salons make money.

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PURPLE SHAMPOO MY HAIR?

The use of purple shampoo is up to the individual, it is used for blondes to remove any yellow undertones, here at Esstudio we recommend using it once a week if you notice that you have tones that you want to avoid seeing in your hair. If you find that you don’t notice or have these brassy tones you can use purple shampoo every second week or once a month… ideally it’s up to the individual on how they feel with the colour and look of their hair.

Is hair Smelting the new Balayage?? ELLE spoke to Aleks from Esstudio Galleria pioneering 2018’s latest colour technique, read up to get down-low. Find ELLE Aus  FB post here. The story also made it to ELLE Netherlands. “We discovered the smelting technique when experimenting with new ways to repair and restore bad colour jobs, fix banding issues and clean up home hair colours gone bad. Smelt is melting down the roots and smudging colours throughout the hair.

As the name suggests, smelting involves smudging and melting colours together to create a blended and seamless finish. Abadia explains, “smelting is all about blending the roots and ends into two colours. Read the full article at the Beauty Crew site here.

The new smelting colouring technique involves lifting the overall colour to the lightest levels of blonde from roots to the ends. This will give hair extra volume, body and create loads of texture with tones and depth of colour shades. This allows us to play with smelting colours from roots to the ends, creating amazing texture, dimension and movement to the hair,” said Aleks. Read full article at Beauty 101
