Hair app review- Modiface Hairstyles

25 November;  Author: admin

modifaceSmart phones! Haven’t they made a world of difference to almost every facet of our lives. It seems that every day I find another useful app on google play that makes my life a little bit easier.  I have already reviewed previously an app that can help show you different colours in your hair, so today i chose one of the more popular hairstyle choosing apps “Modiface”. Before I start my review i might just add a little disclaimer, although the App has some great hairstyles that you can try. Just because the app has a particular hairstyle that looks good different hair has different volume and textures and might not sit how the app shows. It is great for a general idea though.

Screenshot_2015-11-19-13-13-26How it works

So quite simply after downloading the app you simply open it up. You can choose to display the chosen styles on pre-loaded models or alternatively you can take a photo of yourself and display the haircuts on your own face. Once you take the picture it’s just a matter of setting up the parameters of your face so the app can detect the edges of your face and top of your head. Then simply select from the celebrity hair photo’s as listed and apply them to your face.

Screenshot_2015-11-19-13-13-03My thoughts

Some really great points of this app are that it is set up to be incredibly simple to use. I literally picked it up and without instructions was able to start using it with no hassles. The face parameter only needs to be set up as a guide. If it doesn’t look right when you apply the style you can also push the style to fit the unique shape of your face more suitably. The Modiface Celebrity  hair style database is reasonably sizable with about 100 styles to choose from of differing lengths. It’s enough anyway to give you a pretty good selection of basic styles and even has the flexibility to make changes to the hair colour as well to suit you more.

Ok some area’s it could of improved in my mind would be the ability to load your own celebrity style into the database, although the database was descent it did lack some particular styles that might not of been popular when the app was developed but are being asked for in the salon today. The colour palette was a little basic and was definitely not encompassing all the different styles and shades including fashion foil which make up the majority of styles we see today and can change the look of the style on your face as much as texture and volume.

In summation I think this app is better if you are going out and looking at ways to style your hair rather than to see how a haircut looks on your face. It is worth a download but it isn’t a must have for every customers. Click the google play icon to link to the app store and download.

Khloe changes again! Welcome the Lob

21 November;  Author: admin


I don’t think a month goes by when Khloe Kardashian isn’t in the spotlight sporting a new colour or hairstyle. Although she recently experimented with Crazy colour she is now a blonde bombshell and finally let her hair stylist cut her luscious long locks into a trendy Lob (long bob for those playing along at home).

It’s coming into summer now and a lot of our ladies always like to do something a little different. The Lob is a great choice as the texturising through the back will remove a lot of the weight making it a lot cooler for summer and there is still ample length to pony-up for training or work in an elegant way.

If your interested in a change come into the salon to talk to one of our talented stylists to see what would work best for you. Our hairdressing salons are at 3 convinenent locations at Toombul, Taigum and Strathpine.

Charlize Theron get’s a cute pixie

18 November;  Author: admin

charlize-theron-pixieIn September this year Charlize Theron had the biggest change in hair style for her Career so far. The Actress traded her signature long blonde hair for a stylish and Elegant pixie.

Charlize is very lucky that she has the bone structure to make almost any cut look good and as you may already be aware a good pixie looks great on the right person. If your considering a pixie the question you may be asking your self is “Am I the right person?”. Pixie cuts look great on smaller petite women and must have height (at the top of the stlye that is” to work . Typically longer oval or oblong face shape suit the style best, round face shapes tend to make the style look a little boy-ish.

If you would lie to discuss options for shorter cuts with one of our stylists come in for a obligation free consultation and quote at one of our hairdressign salons at Toombul, Taigum or Strathpine.

The next best thing to your own personal hairstylist!

This game changing concept will help manage the cost of Quality hairdressing services.



gallery-1441380886-hbz-hair-transformation-dakota-johnsonSo this is a bit of a follow up article to “stylists calls for return to 90’s style!” That I Published on the 22nd of September. Dekota Johnson who plays Anastasia Steele in fifty shades of gray has taken the plunge and added some highlights. The stylist used a rose gold and blonde two tone highlight effect to achieve this style. If done correctly this technique can look amazing and in her case can really add dimension to blunter hair styles.

You can see that the stylist has used casual placement of the two tones of foils to give a little “chunkiness” to the style, while the slight variation in colour really gives a sense of depth to the style. It’s especially effective with the blunt long bob with wispy fringe that Dekota has and gives the illusion of fullness and an almost swingy appearance.

Our hairdresser ‘s at Taigum, Toombul and Strathpine have some amazing value packages that could colour your hair to this effect from only $119. For an obligation free consultation and quote please call one of our hairdressing salons.


Katy Perry’s Gone Ombre’

13 October;  Author: admin

gallery-1441907927-hbz-hair-transformation-katy-perryblack ombre warmerAlthough she was a little behind the trend Katy Perry finally decided to take the plunge earlier in the year and Ombre’ her trade mark raven black hair. As you would expect the results where stunning as you can see in the before and afters we found here. This is a great example of how to do Ombre’ right! Instead of the typical black to lighter blonde that most people go for Katy and her stylist opted for a warm caramel. For darker skin tones and natural hair colour these warmer transitions usually look a lot more natural and in the “right place” than the popular light blondes. When making your choice of ombre’ colour ensure you and your stylist take this into account.

To the left you will see an example of adopting a warmer tone that Letitia did in our Taigum hairdressers. Ombre’ hair colouring in salon can start from anywhere as low as $180, so why not come into the salon today for an obligation free consultation and quote.

kate fringeSo Kate Middleton “The Dutchess of Cambridge” came out a couple of weeks ago sporting a new side fringe. What are your thoughts? I personally think it suits her. Her face shape definitely suits the style and really accentuate the slim features of her face.

Remember if you are contemplating a side fringe;

1. An Oval,  or heart-shaped face is most suitable for a fringe if you are more rounded or squared it will look very “squat”

2. Fringes are quite high maintenance requiring daily blowdrying or straightening to sit right.

3. Ensure that the hairdresser who cuts it is mindful of cowlicks as if they are not cut into the style correctly it can become a huge problem when styling.

If you like low maintainance styles then go for more shaping or layering around the face rather than a fringe. If you have any questions or would like to find out if this could be suitable for you come into our hair salons at Toombul, Taigum or Strathpine, for an obligation free consultation and quote.
