With the individualised placement of hair colour, Hair Contouring is able enhance and beautify your face. And Yes it is better than Make-up Contouring, as you wear it everyday.

With Hair Contouring we use the placement of highlights and darker segments of Hair Colour around your face to enhance your beauty. For many years hairdressers have been cutting hair as to enhance our facial features. L'Oreal Professional from Paris has developed this idea further by adding Colour Placement to change the appearance of our facial features. Lighter tones are used elongate and lengthen the appearance of your face. While darker tones will create shadows that shorten or narrow the appearance of your face.

While the back was blown out and texturised. Hot Chinese newcomer Langli brought his latest collection to Perth. He is quickly building a strong following around the globe. Hair was slicked back pulled into a topknot, with finely sculpted fringes. One of favourite shows of the festival was that of local Jamie Lee, with her demi couture label. Her amazing clothes were matched with an equally amazing set. Hair was playful. Blonde 50's lobobs featured in the show. 
Caroline remarked how, " I loved taking my hairdressing skills from the salon to the runway". Pushing boundaries Caroline loved, expanding on her skills in a fast pace environment. Working with a big team was a highlight, as was  the fact as the week proceed Caroline's role expanded from assisting to  a more hands on role.
