Have you heard about Ze Flamant Rose? It's an award winning French beauty salon & hairdresser in the heart of Surry Hills, which also prides itself of being eco friendly.
Why I Needed Professional Hair Help As part of my green journey to a healthier, cleaner, more sustainable yet luxurious life, I have decided to grow out my bleach blonde block hair colour. I have been colouring my own hair at home for about 15years using cheap and nasty supermarket hair colour. While the results have been fine, I was no longer comfortable with using these brands, filled with synthetic chemicals, testing on animals ruining my hair. My hair has started breaking in some areas, due to my home diy dyeing. So I said no more harsh fumes and colour drying my scalp. So far so good. I had been letting my roots grow out for a few months when I reached the point of really needing some professional help. Growing block colour out, does not look pretty. As my wedding is coming up in 6 months, I was a little worried to start experimenting with new colour, but my decision was made, I won't go back to toxic DIY colour. My goal is to blend the colour every few months and ultimately having my natural colour back.
VIP Treatment That's when I found Ze Flamant Rose! An eco luxe hair salon in the midst of Surry Hills. Run by a fantastic Team of owners and master stylists Emilie and Cyril, who are welcoming and truly give that VIP treatment. I was offered a range of Organic Tea along side with a french macaroon. Yay. All my doubts and worries about the new colour were blown away instantly when I realized how Emilie was paying close attention to everything I said. I felt that she understood what I was asking for, which really put me at easy. She is just a natural in her field. The salon is very well designed and spacious. My colour was done at a big table filled with books and magazines in a lovely quiet room with good music. Emilie created highlights and low lights with a eco friendly technique, without the use of foils or plastic waste. The colour did not touch my scalp and was also eco friendly. (unfortunately there is not such thing as synthetic chemical free hair colour yet, but at least there are crueltyfree options with eco friendly packaging and salons that use green techniques) We also had the most interesting conversations in the meantime, Emilie is very knowledgeable in natural health and holistic beauty. The highlight was the hair treatment with head massage. I highly recommend you book yourself in for this. Don't be fooled by the playful and simple website, these guys offer the real professional luxury treatment!
The result I left the salon super happy with shiny natural looking hair and that feeling that I wanted to go out and show off my new locks. The result of the colour was better than I could have ever hoped for. Emilie also discussed with me the colour plan up to my wedding day and I am already looking forward to my next appointment. I am also very curious about the facials. Emilie gave me some beautiful samples of the Organic Spa product range to try and I was impressed, so I might book in a facial next time as well. This is for sure an outstanding salon, I am so happy I discovered this treasure.
