From Caroline Cummings -SYDNEY/CENTRAL COAST PEEPS -
I want to give a BIG shout out to anyone who would love to get a hair makeover or a top-notch colour that uses NATURAL products tested on people, not animals I just had the very good fortune to be gifted a set of foils on my hair from the brilliant, award-winning, Aveda hair-colourist Mr Peter Maloney at Luc Espace in Chatswood Chase centre. For almost four hours I was authentically pampered and attended to by Peter (and others who helped) and made to feel really special and cared about. I could see this going on with all the other clients too, which is really quite amazing. Plenty of variety of great magazines (let's face it, that's really important too, right?!) AND the in-house herbal teas were actually pretty divine too!
The salon was very plush but not "in your face" and I really liked the touch where anyone having foils or colour get to sit all together around a big long table in the salon, with NO mirrors right there....so you don't have to look at yourself at your most feral and image-conscious vulnerable moments! KEWL!l.
It was my first introduction to Aveda products and if you have never tried them, they are really beautiful. Peter's knowledge and confident consultation was second to none.
As well as foils, I had a couple of wonderful hair treatments - one of which had me left alone, sitting head back in comfy recliner at the sink for about fifteen minutes, to the point where I think I did actually manage to start hippy-trippy, floating on the ceiling I especially valued being asked beforehand, if I would like eye patches for that duration....in case my closed eyelids might be "bothered by the lighting above" - what a nice touch! It's also pretty special when your colourist comes over to the basin to carefully and thoroughly check in minute detail how the foils have taken, to the point where they see one LITTLE bit on your head that warrants a 'correction" right there and then....something that only a perfectionist who cares could see and find important to do!
In short - you gotta book in! Ask for Peter though - he's the spunky, funny, wise one....very talented and ONLY there one day a week starting next week. He WILL get booked out, so if this calls you, get in touch with him. Tell him I sent you - I don't get any kickbacks, I just really believe in his work after today. Thanks again Peter - you made my day really special and helped my hair HUGELY.
