SUMMER HAIR, DO CARE - THE NEST HAIR BOUTIQUE
From the minute you walk through the doors of Perth’s ‘The Nest Hair Boutique’, you’ll know you’re in a one-of-a-kind hair haven.
From the epic (and we mean, epic!) gift shop, to the signature charismatic salon décor, to the espresso martinis and candy buffet in the Velvet Lounge, to the consistently high-end quality hair with some of Perth’s best stylists, it’s no wonder The Nest continues to be the leading colour specialist salon in Perth.
With summer vibes in full swing, we chat with Owner and Creative Director, Charlie Crothers on her top tips for luscious locks all summer long.
Say hello to products with UV protection
By now, we all know that SPF is a non-negotiable for your skin, but what about SPF for your hair? You probably didn’t even know it’s a thing right?! Summer can cause havoc for your hair – the sun, salt and chlorine can break down the cuticle leaving your stands dry, damaged and frizzy. Summer hair starts with products with added UV protection – we love the Oribe and R+Co range!
Don’t forget about your scalp!
The change of season brings skin and scalp challenges, and if a dry, itchy or flaky scalp is one of your concerns, we’d like to introduce you to Philip Kingsley. A legend and innovator in the field, each product is rooted in trichology – the scientific study of the hair and scalp. In particular, the Flaky/Itchy Shampoo is a multi-award-winning product with exfoliating, stimulating, and soothing ingredients to leave your scalp calm and refreshed.
Add a splash of colour (we dare you!)
The pink hair trend is one of the hottest on the gram right now, but what if we told you that you could have your choice of colour, but only for a few washes. Evo Fab Pro is a super fun way for blondies to add some semi-permanent colour to your hair, without ruining your beautiful blonde. Go on, have some fun this summer – we’re all about the copper and pink vibes at The Nest!
Sleep on Silk
It aint called beauty sleep for nothing! Silk Pillowcases absorb less skincare and create significantly less friction than traditional pillowcases for the best anti-aging, anti-sleep-crease, anti-bed-head beauty hack. Trust us, once you go silk you won’t go back! We love the Slip range made from the highest grade (6A) long fibre, 22 momme mulberry silk.
Cheers to Collagen
At The Nest we love our daily dose of Vida Glow – made from 100% natural marine collagen, it works to encourage collagen production and promote younger-looking skin, thicker hair and stronger nails. Add to your morning coffee or choose one of the yummy flavours to have on its own.
Another favourite is Aede Hair Activist – a potent daily multivitamin packed with collagen and 14 other superfoods designed to support natural, healthy hair growth. Perfect for post-partum hair loss, fine/thinning/shedding hair, stress related hair loss, oily or itchy scalp or low immunity.
