How to get salon hair at home? – we chat to Jazzi from KOVU

You know those fresh out of the salon hair feels? The ones that are so tricky to replicate out of salon? I did a bit of investigation to find out how to get it at home - keep reading to find out more! 

I chatted to Jazzi Bennett, my amazing hairdresser at KOVU. When I first started going to KOVU a few years ago, Jazzi had just recently moved to Canberra. Now fast forward a few years, Jazzi is now a senior stylist and manager at KOVU!

Evie: How did you get started as a hairdresser?
Jazzi: I started my hairdressing career when I was 16, I left school in year 11 to pursue my dream job and have never looked back!

Evie: What is your favourite part of being a hairdresser?
Jazzi: There is no better feeling than knowing you have boosted someone’s confidence and made them feel a million dollars! I love that we are constantly learning and educating others. Plus meeting all the amazing stylists and clients.

Evie: What hair advice would you give your younger self?
Jazzi: Don’t box colour your hair!! I had sooo many different haircuts and colours that looking back now are very questionable! When I started my apprenticeship my boss had to strip years’ worth of box colour build up! I thought it looked great at the time.

Evie: What's your tip to get salon washed hair feel at home?
Jazzi: Using professional products at home will give you guaranteed results. Always shampoo your hair twice to make sure it’s been cleaned properly. Washing your hair once isn’t enough to break down all the residue and product built up, especially if you haven’t washed your hair for a few days!

Evie: What do you recommend for regular gym-goers?
Jazzi: Dry shampoo is the Queen B of hair products (in my opinion). Spray on root area before heading to the gym as this helps absorb moisture and keeps your hair looking fresh. Hair perfumes are an option as well, along with a messy bun, sweat bands or embracing the dirty hair with a slicked back pony or bun.

Evie: What's the most common hair question you get?
Jazzi: This is a hard one! I get soo many different questions per day!
Q - How do I stop my hair going yellow?/stop colour fading?
A - Using professional products help with getting longevity from your colour. For blondes I always recommend a blonde shampoo paired with a high moisturising conditioner. For darker or brighter colours a shampoo and conditioner designed for colour care is recommended, my favourite brands are Evo, Theorie and Goldwell. For brighter colours a pigmented conditioner once a week.

Did you love this chat as much as I did? What was your fave tip from Jazzi?
