WELCOME TO OFF THE FRINGE

So, you’re looking for a new hair salon… a place that is conscious about what they’re putting on your hair, that’s invested in the care of our environment, with people who will go on a hair journey with you, and who are invested in your overall holistic health of your hair and you as a person.

You’ve come to the right place!

Welcome to Off The Fringe, we do things a little differently here and we guarantee that you will feel the Off The Fringe difference.

THE PROCESS

Our team of stylists are trained and experienced colourists and can help with whatever your choice of colour is:

    1. Consultation
    2. Skin Patch Test
    3. Wet Stretch Test

  1. Your First Appointment
  2. Personal Prescription Card

WHY CONSULT FIRST?

We are about to embark on a hair journey together. We are just as invested in you having fabulous, healthy hair as you are. So before we go ahead and start, we’d like to get to know you first. This consult is free of charge and obligation free. In our consult we cover a few key things:

  • Why you’d like to go organic
  • Your hair goals and aspirations
  • We wet stretch test your hair
  • We do a skin patch test 
  • If everyone is happy, we book your first appointment

WHAT'S A WET STRETCH TEST?

A wet stretch test is a simple check of your moisture and protein levels of your hair. This helps us understand the condition of your hair so we can use the right products to help get or keep your hair healthy, and prolong the life of the colour we use. It’s simple and painless and this is what happens:

  • We wet your hair
  • We take about 10 strands of hair
  • We test the stretch and bounce back of your hair in 3 locations – at the roots, mid-length and at the end

WHY DO A SKIN PATCH TEST?

The industry is evolving and we need to be responsible for our clients. New regulations and manufacturer’s instructions recommend a patch test before every colour service in the salon.  We require every new client to have a skin patch test performed 48 hours prior to any colour appointment. These tests are recorded on your client record card and any reactions are reported to the manufacturer immediately.

We do this for you. We don’t want you to have any adverse reactions* to our colours. What we are testing for is any reaction to ingredients in our colour range. This can be from the base of the of the colour (soy) or the actual Pigment in the colour (PPD or Para-phenylenediamine. We use the lowest levels of PPD possible in colour, averageing 0.29%) as well as any other listed ingredient in the colour. (This list is available for clients). This test can be done by your stylist or if you prefer you can take it home and apply it yourself.

  • Your stylist will supply the colour 2 shades darker than your intended colour
  • Apply a small amount of colour to a clean dry area of skin, either behind the ear, between the shoulder blades or on the inside of your arm
  • The colour is to remain on the area of skin for a minimum of two hours – it can be covered with a plaster
  • After two hours, remove the plaster and any residue of colour that may remain on the skin
  • If there is any reaction, during the two hours please remove immediately and wash with warm water
  • Take note of any reaction during the next 48hours

 

*NOTE: A reaction is defined as; redness, soreness, irritation, or itching, any time from the colour is applied on the skin to 48 hours after the colour is applied on the skin.  If a sensitivity occurs, rinse immediately. If irritation persists we suggest you seek medical advice.

WHAT'S SUSTAINABLE SALONS?

Off the Fringe Organic Hair Studio is proud to be part of  Sustainable Salons. This revolutionary resource recovery program is designed for the salon to achieve zero waste,
reduce our carbon footprint, and implement sustainable work practices that benefit the local community, which means:

    • 95% of the resources used during your service will be diverted from landfill and sent to recycling
    • All the proceeds gained from recycling the salon’s metals will be donated to not-for-profit community-based organisations helping humanity
    • Plastic product bottles, packaging, and bags are recycled into new products and kept out of our oceans
  • Any leftover chemicals will be recycled into water and used in construction/roadworks
  • Cut off hair will support charitable causes such as oil spill clean-up projects, local community gardens, and charitable wig making services
  • Once our tools reach their end of life, they will be broken down and all valuable parts will be repurposed.
     

So each time you visit our sustainable salon, you can feel good about doing good!
