Having our hair coloured is always high on our beauty to-do list, right up with waxing and fixing our eyebrows, but it can be hard to find 3+ hours to devote to nixing greys and brassy highlights (because, life). Lately though, we’ve been acquainted with a professional hair service that gives us a whole new motive to clear our schedules for a little me time.
We recently visited Bahaus Hair in Waterloo, Sydney, to experience a full colour service using Parisian born La Biosthetique products. Aside from being the height of frenchy-chic luxury, the company has an initiative they call ‘Colour With Care’, an initiative that sees every tube of colour sold will raise funds for the global not for profit organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors without Borders. This initiative provides services such as medical care in areas struck with infectious disease, access to meals for malnourished children or safe childbirth delivery kits for those without access to medical facilities. Even just one in salon colour can provide 4 malaria kits.
Even with all the good-feels aside, we left the salon with perfect caramel highlights blended seamlessly throughout a glossy brunette hue. So if you’re looking to lessen the hair appointment guilt, this is such a beautiful way to go.
