Henna Brows vs. Tattoo Brows

Henna Brows vs. Tattoo Brows

Esstudio Galleria prides itself on top quality treatments this includes our Henna Brows;

The bespoke eyebrow treatment that is completely personalised to you!

Esstudio Galleria has introduced their new bespoke Henna Brow Treatment – an eyebrow solution completely personalised to you. The new treatment is now offered as a better, semi permanent option than eyebrow tattooing. Henna is the perfect alternative for those who want the bold look with little commitment.

Jacqui Arnold, Co-Founder and Beauty Director of Esstudio Galleria says, “Our bespoke henna eyebrow treatment is so much more than a standard eyebrow wax and tint. We custom-blend colour to suit your brow hair and skin tone and with the precise hair removal it creates brows that complement you and your style personally.”

Both henna and tattoo eyebrow treatments are most suited for those who want to restructure, define, cover or fill over-plucked brows. Both treatments being most popular for those who can no longer gain any natural hair growth, or to those who want to achieve a better bolder brow. The henna brow is the safest way with less commitment that will look just as good, if not better! 

Henna is currently trending for a reason! Many women want the look of full brows that microblading can offer, but don’t want the pricetag or commitment of a full cosmetic procedure. Henna is a beautiful compromise – it creates the illusion of fuller brows by staining the skin, much in the same way microblading creates the appearance of extra brow hair.

Henna Brows:

BEFORE 

AFTER


Henna lasts up to 5 weeks on the hair with 3 weeks wear on the skin giving you an overall look of a tattoo. There are so many options to have with the henna option.  With henna, eyebrows can be as dark or as subtle as requested. Colours are mixed to suit each individual.

Tattoo Brows:

Tattoo eyebrow treatment lasts generally 2 years, depending on your skin type.  Pigment is implanted into the skin, with a fine needle hand-held tool or tattoo machine that creates hair-like strokes to mimic the appearance of a natural looking brow.

“Tattoo brow treatment is not suited to everyone. Many people with oily or dewy skin types won’t have success maintaining the pigment. Once the pigment has been implemented, the colour is harder to reverse. Our new henna brow treatment is the perfect, natural looking brow and the best part is that it is suitable for everyone to try,” says Jacqui.

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

Hair colour Verses skin colour.

Changing up your hair colour is never as simple as pointing at a model on the front of a magazine and proclaiming, “I want that!”

Your skin tone plays a major part in choosing the right colour for you, In fact, it’s less about the hair colour you like and more about what hair colour will suit your skin tone. The perfect hair colour will not only complement your skin-tone and make your best facial features pop, it also help you look years younger if its done right!   Lets face it, none of us want to look tired, un-natural, old or washed out…REally!

Skin Undertones and Hair Colour.

Your skin tone contains underlying pigments and less or more melanin. Naturally black or brown haired peeps will likely have warmer, earthy undertones in your skin like orange, brown, gold or orange-based red. Blondies or redheads will probably have cooler skin undertones like blue, green, pink or blue-based red.

So peeps with warmer skin tones will look better with a warmer hair color, like golden blondes or honey browns and orange reds. Those with cooler undertones in their skin will look better with cooler hair colors, like ash blonde, black or auburn browns

So here is an inside of whats ahead in the world of colour, Cheer’s to rockin’ 2015.

HAIRCOLOUR FOR 2015

Dark Highlights

Highlights-for-Dark-Brown-Hair-0113-11

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All-over dark colour is a little solid but breaking it up with subtle tonal highlights softly brightens and adds gorgeous dimension. Upkeep is very minimal, since the highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Lily Aldridge is a perfect example of the trend. I don’t think Balyage will ever die out… Its such minimal upkeep!

Colour treatment: Free lights mid-legths to ends for a face framing effect, all over gloss injected with an colour-tone of colour to suit your skin.

Maintenance: Very low maintenance.  Only requires 4 visit a year to your salon, maybe gloss and a toner in-between

Cost:  from $150 – $300

 

Golden Brown

The soft spot between brown and red? Auburn, like Cara Delevingne’, she’s a chameleon we’ve seen her with every colour under the sun.. And Blake Lively here looks gorgeous as ever, always looks amazing!  Evan Rachael Wood rockin’ gorgeous auburn with golden highlights and pixie cut! Ask for subtle, thin chestnut highlights.

Colour treatment: Auburn all over & compliment with chestnut highlights to break it up.

Maintenance: Medium Every 6 – 8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.

Cost: from $250 – $300

Dirty Blonde

Going from brunette to blonde? Easing into a lighter colour  will be much better on your hair. Keep the roots darker and blended in with warm caramel and caramel highlights through the length. Love this look!

Colour Treatment: Tint or semi on the roots with Wella Freelights on the ends and possibly a toner.

Maintenance: Medium 8 – 10 weeks visits

Cost: $250 – $300

Bright Blonde

Bright, buttery blonde color, like sexy Gigi here, tends to be more flattering (and less maintenance) than platinum and much nicer on the skin. Look how her skin is glowing!

Colour Treatment: Lots of fine highlights with a few colour’s with soft tonal differences.

Maintenance: High maintenance visits to the salon every 6 weeks.

Cost: $200 – $300

Rose Gold

“This season is all about rose-golden locks,” .  It flatters all skin tones but looks best on pale skin.  Well I think so anyway.. You all know I’m a fan of the pale

Colour Treatment: Beautiful copper tint with some wella free lights to create texture.

Maintenance: High maintenance salon visits every 4 – 6 weeks.

Cost: First initial visit $250 then $150 – $200

Fashion colours

Guys these sorts of colours are very high maintenance. But if you have the patience you could be walking around with a very cool lookin colour!

Pastel colour. Grey – Blue – Purple are the most popular a Esstudio.   The hair needs to be lifted to a very light blonde before applying the fashion colour. A favorite of ours right now is a beautiful clean Grey!! Believe it or not!  This one looks best on pretty young things haha.

Love this ombre grey with a darker root and the Denim blue.

Why not try this colour at Esstudio
We were voted one of the top salons by Urbanlist!

Maintenance: Extremely high maintenance 4 weekly salon visits

Cost: Initial cost $300 – $500 and maintenance $200

Hairs Styles Verses Face Shapes

Coming into autumn soon, we think it’s the perfect time to heat things up with a new look. This season is all about texture, from fuzzy sweaters to fresh bouncy layers in our hair.

The secret to wearing a hairstyle trend lies in the cut and your hair texture and your face shape. e.g. a long bob works much better on a rounder face than the classic, chin-length bob. And when it comes to bangs, side-swept is your best bet if you have a long face.

Here are examples of a few face shapes.

Round face shape

If you have a round face, You should have your hair cut that hits below the chin or longer. You want to add a little length to your face.

Hairstyles with height and fullness at the crown will give the illusion of a narrower face shape, particularly those short in length.
Longer hairstyles or ones that are kept close to the cheeks with no width will look better.
Middle parts are great for creating the illusion of narrow length.

Oval face shape

Oval faces tend to look good in everything, but their faces can appear long with the wrong haircut.

Any shape and style can be worn, whether it’s short, long, layered or bobbed.
The thing to consider with an oval face shape is what part of your face you want to accentuate. This is where you can get creative with bangs and layers or how you style your hair everyday.

Long/Oblong face

Hairstyle that are short to medium in length with longer top layers without height are best suited.

Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under or kick out also work very well to add width.  Straight across bangs with side parts work best.
Layered styles in medium and long lengths that add body in with wavy and curly textures are great for softening the straight long lines of oblong face shapes.

HAIRCUTS FOR 2015

Pixie Rock

Chic-Messy-Short-Hairdos-2015

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This season the usually sweet pixie cut gets a bad-arse makeover with shaved sides, spikes which really accentuate the sexiness of your cheekbones, neck, and jawline.

A little Ruffled up

Say goodbye to those stick straight angled bobs! This season is all about short, defined waves (like Sienna Miller’s) that effortlessly frame your face, or peek out from underneath your favourite Hat.

The Modern 70’s

2711084-taylor+swift

 

 

 

 

 

 

This popular cut takes inspiration from the 1970s beauty icon, but is still running strong and looks fab. The shoulder-length feathery layers will work with or without bangs like Taylor Swift’s and complement all face shapes.

The Blunt Cut

a262c08f59059aced8f28b8acda07bf5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though texture is trending, this blunt mid-length style is having a major moment, too. It has absolutely no layers, just a straight across cut with a bit of feathering at the ends, and works best on those with an oval face shape like Kendall Jenner.

Modern Beach waves

Instead of the been there, done that, mermaid waves that we usually see on the red carpet are in this season.

Expect to see choppy front pieces or bangs with some long layers adding lots of fabulous texture. This look has natural volume and an effortlessly easy, yet sexy vibe.
