    EP 175: Cuts for Change: How Hair Aid Breaks the Poverty Cycle

    EP 175: Cuts for Change: How Hair Aid Breaks the Poverty Cycle

    Hair Aid is an extraordinary organization dedicated to providing livelihood skills training to women recused from the sex trade, drug lords and those who live in critical poverty, and hair cutting skills. Once trained, the ladies can earn money, and create a pathway out of poverty. In Australia Hair Aid conducts Community Cuts events, providing free haircuts to those who need a hand up. 
    Hair Aid now has seven international projects a year, and  20+ hairdressers at a time come on each project. Training can be under a tree or on a basketball court – wherever space and people are willing to learn. In five days, the locals learn five basic cuts. With their newfound skills and also the hair-cutting kits donated through Hair Aid, the locals can go on to open their own businesses – even on the side of a road – to start earning money to feed their children. To date, Hair Aid has trained over 6700+ people.
     
    Listen to Episode 175 of The Colour Kristina Talks Podcast to learn  all the amazing things the Australian-based charity Hair Aid is doing both internationally and within Australian communities, and why you need to get involved.

    EP 173: What is Cinnamon Haircolour? Deciphering trends the easy way…

    EP 173: What is Cinnamon Haircolour? Deciphering trends the easy way…

    Cinnamon Hair Colour draws inspiration from the warm, spicy tones of cinnamon. Imagine the rich, deep, warm hues of cinnamon sticks – a mix of red, brown, and subtle golden undertones. This colour trend is all about bringing a natural, warm, and inviting look that’s perfect for those looking to add a bit of spice to their hair without going too bold.
    I’m excited about this trend because it’s a fantastic option for brunettes and blondes who want to add warmth and richness to their hair. It's a perfect blend of subtlety and boldness that works beautifully with many skin tones, styles and hair lengths.
    Cinnamon is low-maintenance and highly suitable for budget-conscious salon clients during this cost-of-living crisis. 
    Get ready to learn about this versatile, rich hue and how you can create this stunning look for your clients. Listen to EP 173 of the Colour Kristina Talks Podcast for Hairdressers and Salon Owners.

    EP 171: Balayage & Toning Tips for Reds & Copper Hair Clients

    EP 171: Balayage & Toning Tips for Reds & Copper Hair Clients

    Balayage is a technique to is adaptable to blondes, brunettes, brondes and redheads. Anyone that wants natural sunkissed haircolour is the ideal client to try subtle freehand techniques. There are so many different applications for different end results. The term balayage is taken from the French word for ‘sweeping’. ‘It’s a freehand hair colouring technique that gives a blended, natural look with no harsh or obvious regrowth lines.
    Balayage differs from foil highlighting because the hairdresser paints colour directly onto the hair instead of wrapping it in foil. There are no stripes and it’s all about the seamless blends and future proof vibes for low-maintenance colour that looks gorgeous as it grows out without any harsh lines or obvious roots.  
    In this episode, we're talking about balayage and toning strategies for redheads and why they are so different to working with Blondes, Brondes and Brunettes.

FanJay7 ,

Valuable Talks!

Kia ora Kristina,
This is just so helpful as we are in lock down at the moment, and as a salon owner it's really great to spend time working on the business instead of in the business. Myself and my business partner really turning this time into a positive instead of negative down time.
Your podcast are a great tool to keep us thinking about the team the vibe and what we can offer and how to offer the best service we can with on going education.
I really love listening to your podcasts and your guest speakers with lots of tips and ideas.
Very valuable, thank you so much, keep talking.
