It won’t be long before the gusty winds of autumn kick in and fly away hair needs to be tidied up!

Just as well Laura Prickett and Charlotte Harris from Off the Fringe Organic Hair Studio are offering a <bold> 10% discount to all clients who book with them.

The lovely duo who joined the increasingly popular Howick salon late last year are making a name for themselves with their individual talents.

Formerly based in the UK, Laura has worked for many years with the Organic Colour Systems (OCS) range for which Off the Fringe is known for.

A stylist who has completed numerous hair styling workshops, she also has an interest in stage hair and makeup. And lately, she has become a dab hand at creating unique and bespoke colours for her clients.

Charlotte is passionate about communicating with her clients and working together with them to create the perfect style. She is constantly keeping up to date with the latest trends and regularly attends seminars to keep her inspirations current. She loves working with the OCS range and never ceases to be amazed by the results.

Laura and Charlotte are extremely excited to be attending an advanced cutting and colouring course next month with an International artist based in Australia.

Both Laura and Charlotte are thrilled to be a part of the dynamic team at Off the Fringe which includes owner, Bridgette Young and stylist Megan Shepherd and apprentice, Alex Roberts.

In fact, the salon is still fresh from its second birthday celebrations last month which coincided with the launch of its successful referrals programme.

“We’re so pleased with the way things are heading at the moment and in a relatively short time, we’ve managed to introduce the wonders of OCS to so many satisfied clients,” says Bridgette.

With every new client, the salon performs an in-depth consultation and a wet stretch test (to analyse individual hair conditions) and prescribes a tailored treatment plan accordingly.

“It’s a whole system,” says Bridgette. “If you’re going to invest in hair colour, we recommend committing to a complete range of OCS products because it will help the colour last longer.”

The busy salon is always on the lookout for hair models especially for full-head foils and scalp lightening, as well as cutting for both men and women.
