Cut and Finish

What is the definition of a good hair cut?

Surely any hairdresser can just cut hair but does that make you a happy customer?

Our stylist are educated to cut for the individual as and know how to create a personal haircut for each of their clients. Our stylist do not trend cut to the season unlike other salons.

Here we take time to find out what you as the individual need and want from your hair. From that we will use our cutting skills and techniques to achieve your perfect cut. We will even offer the correct advice on how to perfectly maintain this look.

The finish, we offer a high class finish at Hair Technique using products from top end brands such as: Redken, ghd and Orofluidio.

Whether you want a classic finish or want to try a ghd blow-dry with our advance techniques using the latest ghd stylers we will choose with you what is best for you and your hair type.

The best  part is there are no hidden charges for your finish all products and tools are included to create the perfect style.


75%  of women colour their hair are you 1 of these?, or are you considering colouring your hair for the 1st time?

Colour can be as dramatic or as subtle as you would like it to be.

We use Matrix colour at Hair Technique. They offer a wide range of shades from your natural reflect tones to your bright vibrant tones, they even offer an extra coverage for those unwanted stubborn grey hairs too.

We changed to using matrix colours in 2012 from another big leading brand. Although it was a nervous challenge we as a salon have never looked back. With an amazing choice of colour and 100% coverage and a change in the hair condition (colour contain cera-oil conditioning complex/ jojaba oil and soy bean), we also have noticed colour fade was very little in between each hair service. We did not experience this with the brand that we previously used.

Its all about the technique…… So what technique is best for you? We offer a wide range of colouring techniques: 

  • Full head
  • Highlights
  • Balayage
  • Colour melting
  • Ombre

Any new customer must have a colour skin test which has to be done at least 48 hours before any colour service.

Hair extensions

Do you want long luxurious hair, or to add some thickness to your fine hair, or maybe just to add some colour without the use of chemicals. At Hair Technique we offer the leading no.1 brand in hair extensions Racoon. 

Are hair extensions expensive?

They can be as expensive as you would like them to be, BUT ask yourself a question, why would you choose another cheaper brand that could leave your natural hair damaged and with bald patches on your scalp, where training and application methods are incorrect. Can other brands guarantee that the stylist has been fully trained and hold certificates to carry this work out. Is the hair ethically sourced and will they guarantee the quality of the hair that they are using?    

All Racoon stylist go through an intense training program where they are awarded with a certificate when completed. All hair is 100% ethically sourced and the quality of the hair is guaranteed for 1 year if you follow the correct aftercare advice. We offer 2 different hair extension systems:

Luxe Bond. This is scientifically proven not to damage the hair thanks to the unique polymer bond- non allergy synthetic, which leaves no trace or residue in the hair. The bonding material is made from natural products such as pine kernel and orange peel extract.

Luxe Links. This is the smallest link available in the hair extension industry in 2017, it is made from aluminum so it just bends and does not crack therefore not breaking or damaging the natural hair. The size of the link is as small as 2.5mm .
