Melbourne Hair Expo was great. I really believe that when you're in the hair and beauty industry you never stop learning. I'm always attending seminars. Sometimes I might spend a whole day at a seminar and not learn much, but there's always something I pick up, even if it's only small. That's how I evolve as a hairdresser, by picking up the seemingly insignificant ideas, appreciating the "ah-ha" learning moments, mixing it all together, gaining from years of experience, knowing that there is always so much more to learn from others. Hair Expo is where you can learn so much, from so many, in a short time!
I spent two days at Hair Expo. For me it was attending back to back seminars, with virtually no time to eat or drink. There was plenty to purchase - I had to keep myself in check there. It would have been very easy to just keep buying and buying. Unfortunately I didn't attend the Salon Summit or the Gala night. Next time I'll try and attend everything.

Everyone's asking for spiral perms!
Perm on long hair
More and more clients are asking for spiral perms. I do have to knock a lot of people back because their hair isn't in good enough condition to perm.
This perm on Maria's hair took a number of hours to do. I had to wind very small sections of hair so that I could fit it on the normal perm rods that I used. I used ninety perm rods. Lucky her her wasn't any thicker - we would have needed a nap in between!. It was a great result.
Maria used to braid her hair regularly to get a curly look. No need for the braids any more.
When you're ready to have your hair permed give me a call.

Longest hair I've trimmed - and Grace is still growing it!
Longest hair I've ever trimmed
Grace has the longest hair I've ever had the pleasure to cut. Mind you I only have to cut less than one centimetre off her hair every few months, as that is all that is needed. Grace had her hair cut from waist to chest length around mid to late 2009 and has been growing it ever since. Grace is of mixed Asian and European ethnicity, but is overwhelmingly Asian. Her mother is Chinese and her father is Indian with a little bit of European. Here is how Grace told me she looks after her hair:
" I wash my hair weekly only. My weekly routine is to whisk 1 or 2 whole eggs with olive or macadamia oil, like a mask, have it sit in my hair for 30 minutes or more, then shampoo it out (with lukewarm water, of course, because the egg will cook in hot water), and condition. I lightly oil my hair during the week too, with argan or olive oil, which also helps me to arrange it in braids or a bun. I rarely wear it loose. I don't use blowdryers, curling irons, or anything like that. I think my hair is too fragile. I can't dye my hair because of severe allergies."
Thanks for sharing your story Grace. - Bev Ryrie - mobile hairdresser - Melbourne - 8-5-2017

More clients are asking for perms now. Most are asking for soft perms. Bec was after a soft hair perm but with a bit more curl than a beach wave perm. Bec had never had a perm before, had quite a bit cut off her hair and changed her look significantly.
This photo was taken straight after the perm. Bec wanted something that was soft enough to leave to dry naturally. She can also blow dry her hair and tong it for bigger curls.

New look for the Bev Ryrie Mobile Hairdresser PRICES Page
New Price List
Mobile Hairdresser Price List
I've changed the format of the hairdressing price list on my website for everyone's convenience.
At first glance it's a shorter page making it easy for you to find what you're looking for quite quickly. Hairstyle categories on the page expand and contract, so that you don't have to scroll too much.
To make your favourite hairstyle pictures easier to find I've changed the names of the hairstyle pages and changed where you'll find the different hairstyles. Hairstyles now come under categories such as wedding hairstyles. hair buns, curls, beehives, French rolls, braids etc.
For those interested in following me on Pinterest I have added a Pinterest 'Follow Me' link at the top of each page on this website. There are also 'save me' links on the gallery pages. View the Hairstyle Gallery 29-8-16
