POODLE IT This Summer 2014 Inspirations!
We have a special way of putting in the bobby pins so it lasts longer,http://www.thepoodle.com.au helps you get through the day without it falling out.
Why are we different from normal blow dry bars Because we do it with love!
Blow-dry bars are internationally one of the latest trends in hairstyling. They offer quick, professional styling to women who are short on time, but want to look chic. Efficiency is the key, with a wash and blow dry turned around in 45 minutes. I want the Poodle to be more than just a blow dry bar. I want it to be a complete experience - one which a client will want to experience again and again. I want to bring out the best in my clients. i want them to feel great about who they are. My personal goal is to inspire people to reach their full potential in life through commitment to beautiful hair. It starts with our promise to deliver excellent service every time a client walks into The Poodle. Why hair matters? 'Hair is perhaps our most powerful symbol of individual and group identity. Powerful first because it is physical and therefore extremely personal, and second because, although personal, it is also public rather than private.' Realising the importance of hair for our very human identity and it's relevance in modern life, i want to marry a service where everything runs like clockwork but maintains authenticity; from the booking to the completion of a client’s hair. I will deliver perfect blow waves, fair pricing and most importantly, making each client feel that they are special - and they are. My online booking system is revolutionary; the client makes the booking, not the salon. It has taken a lot of thought and may I say money, but it is something which I believe will be used in other industries and loved by our clients. Wishing you all the Happiest of Hair Days, Deb Xo

The Biggest Hair Mistakes & How To Fix Them

The Biggest Hair Mistakes & How To Fix Them

When I was growing up, my mother was forever reminding me how important it was to look after your skin, your nails, and most importantly (well, to her) your hair. “Forget buying clothes,” she said.“Spend your money looking after your hair instead!”
 
Do you think I listened? Oh, hell no. And so began my many, many years of hair mistakes… bad cuts, horrible colours, frizzy hair…the list goes on.
 
If only I knew the things I know now! After all these years, I have finally learnt some hair do’s and don’t’s. However, not everyone is so lucky.
 
So what are the biggest hair mistakes you can make? And how on earth do you go about fixing them? We spoke with some of the best hairdressers in Melbourne to find out their top tips.
