Explosive hair styling: Say goodbye to bad hair days with Bang Bang Hair

BY LIANDE BARNARD - JUNE 4, 2015

They say change is as good as a holiday and since I desperately needed a new look; I decided to go for a change I wouldn’t normally do. I seldom trust anyone with my hair, hence it was somewhat of a leap of faith when I visited Bang Bang Hair in Richmond Hill after hearing lots of wonderful things about them.

Bang Bang Hair, which is a Wella Professionals Signature Salon, has been open for two months now. Owner and head stylist, Janus Snyman, who prides himself on delivering the best service - whether to a student or to a lawyer, went out of his way to make me feel welcome. We instantly connected!

After a complementary 360? consultation, to which everyone is entitled at Bang Bang Hair, and seeing what my tresses would look like, I could not wait for him to start. All the while, I also admired the salon’s open-plan layout and its mix of old and new-age décor, which combines into a completely relaxed setting.

To colour my hair, Janus used the Wella Professionals Colour ID. This product gets added into the colour formula that forms a web around the colour solution, allowing stylists to deliver perfectly blended and placed hair colour. There is no need for foils or separator.

He also used Wella Professionals Illumina Colour, which is designed to give a natural, three dimensional colour that allows your hair to interact differently to various forms of light.

Finally, I was introduced to something I have never heard of – Blonder Freelights, otherwise essentially known as lightening without the need for foils. Janus explained that upon my entrance, he observed movement in my hair that needed to be enhanced.

The end result was pure delight! My tresses exploded with colour, looked more natural and felt bouncy. While he exceeded my every expectation, Janus was not satisfied and still showed me the correct ways to shampoo it; how to take proper care of it and even the basic things such as making a ponytail! He is one stylist who is passionate about his craft.

I was so grateful for his advice because when you invest so much in your hair, you should be able to take care of it. I can highly recommend Bang Bang Hair to anyone looking to try a new salon experience.
