    HIGHLIGHTS

    A term used when a certain amount of texture or a variety of colours are applied to parts of your hair using foiling or streaking techniques to lighten natural or artificially coloured hair.

    LOW LIGHTS

    Lowlights are the opposite of highlights and are mainly used when we want to deepen or change reflects in light hair. Lowlights are an option if you want to disguise grey hair but not cover or commit to re-growth. We can decide on a colour that is the same as your natural colour and blend out some of your greys, or we can use lowlights as a subtle or very strong contrast in between lighter pieces of hair.

    FOILS

    Foils give total control to use various tones or shades thick or thin, natural or dynamic, dependant on your preference. Foils can be used on partial areas of the head to exaggerate or accentuate a haircut. The amount of foils applied will depend on your hair cut, the effect we want to achieve and how much existing colour you have in your hair.

    Full head: strands spaced throughout your whole head (what you usually have the first time you try this type of colouring)

    Half head: if your hair is long or to add texture and contrast between the nape area and the top of your hair. Half head is also more economical than full head foils as the labour and the colour mixed is less

    Crown and Parting: this is when you need a quick set of highlights or an emergency touch-up between a full head or half head service.

    STREAKS

    If you have existing artificially darkened hair and want to go lighter, this would generally be the safest technique. We are able to apply the highlight bleach to all the hair that has been pulled through the cap at the one time, which gives us a little more control on areas of application, an even level of lightness and allows no colour to touch the scalp

    If you are rushed for time or have a limited budget, then streaks could be used to obtain similar results to foils.

    SLICES, CHUNKS, SLASH BACKS AND CREATIVE BLOCK COLOURING

    Using Permanent or Demi colour, we can creatively section panels of hair and apply different shades, contrasts and section sizes to create subtle or dramatic effects that best complement you and your hair cut.

    ULTIMATE SHINE

    L’Oreal’s Diacolor Richesse and DiaLight demi-permanent colour ranges are ideal for caring and treating hair. They give you superb added shine and softness with the effects of a soft natural colour which fades gradually. Designed to either darken or highlight reflects within your hair to shades of red, copper, brown, ash etc.

    • Not time consuming, processing can take between 5 to 25min
    • Low maintenance, no re-growth
    • Can cover up to 30% grey hair
    • Great for freshening permanent colours in-between regular salon visits
    • Contain no ammonia, for little or no disturbance to the hairs natural pigment
    • Enhances foils, highlights etc
    • Safe enough to use during pregnancy
  • Crystallizing Straightening

    SHISEIDO CRYSTALLIZING STRAIGHTENING SYSTEM

    Escapadehfb gives you immediate results with PERMANENT benefits!

    A revolutionary service that permanently smoothes, straightens and adds shine to wavy, curly or frizzy hair.

    Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening is a precise but relatively simple 2 step process….straightening and then neutralizing. The procedure takes approximately 4 hours (dependent on the length and thickness of hair).

    A thorough consultation determines which of the 3 Crystallizing Straightening formulas we will use on your hair.

    Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening Systems not only straighten curly or wavy hair, but conditions the hair leaving it shiny, healthy and pin straight permanently.

    The price of the Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening can be determined after a thorough consultation. Pricing will differ subject to the length of the hair, the density, the amount of product used and the application time involved.

  • Cutting & Styling

    Finding the right Stylist is an important moment for anyone. Placing your trust in someone who will become responsible for how you look is huge. At Escapade we truly believe that we are blessed to be able to enhance your feeling of well-being.

    Our precision cutting skills are developed through rigorous training and our creative talent will help you achieve the exact look to make you feel “WOW”. Let us design a cut especially for you that will grow out evenly and not need high maintenance styling at home to keep it looking good.

    We thrive on a challenge; from the curliest to the straightest; from the shortest to the longest – every hair type is welcome at Escapade & that includes the kids too…we love pampering our “smallest” clientele as much as the adults.

    The same goes for our Styling. A night out? A formal? A wedding? For no reason at all? Blow-dry, GHD curls, finger waving, upstyling or flat-ironing. Styling is something we’re passionate about.

  • Extensions

    Nowadays the market is full of different systems or types of hair extensions and at Escapadehfb our highly trained team will be able to advise you on which system will work best for you.

    The reality of hair extensions is that they are all good when used on the right hair type to achieve the desired result, but wrong decisions on the attachment and hair type can result in some serious damage to your hair (and scalp).

    Our team of dedicated, qualified and highly trained staff will be able to advise you on which system and hair will be suitable for you.

    A quote for Hair Extensions will be provided to you following a thorough consultation with your stylist.

    Prices vary subject to the look you want to achieve; whether it’s to increase length, add body or volume or perhaps just a few strands for colour and texture.

    The amount of hair needed to achieve your desired result differs from person to person and this can affect both the cost of the hair and the amount of labour time allocated for application.

    Following your consultation, hair is specially ordered for you therefore a deposit is required because personalised colour matching means the hair ordered for you can’t be used on another client.

    Hair extensions are not suitable for everyone and even with the numerous techniques available; escapadehfb strives to keep up to date with all methods of application through thorough research and extensive training.

    We only use the highest grade of European (or Remy) human hair because we know, through experience, that the use of cheaper grade alternatives won’t give you the result you expect. Our hair wefts come in a maximum length of 22 inches and 20 colours.

    It is essential that you have a thorough consultation. We will need to know about your lifestyle, your hobbies, your usual hair care routine and your expectations. Why? Because at escapadehfb we believe in getting it right the first time!

    Hair extensions should not be an “impulse buy”. It is imperative that you understand what is needed to meet your realisation of 3 to 4 years growth in a couple of hours.

    There is “extra work” involved in caring for your new hair, but it’s worth it…results are amazing subject to your commitment.

    CLIP EXTENSIONS

    Locking clips are sewn onto human hair wefts. They snap closed into natural hair to add additional length or fullness. Apply and remove as often as you like.

    Advantages

    • Change length of your own hair instantly
    • Control when your want longer hair

    • You must wear them tied up at night to prevent tangling and to relieve tension on your scalp from pulling

    MICRO-CLIP TECHNIQUE

    Small pieces of 100% human hair are attached with a small plastic sheath that fits onto your existing hair using a clamp implement. This forms a semi-permanent bond (hair to hair). This technique can be used to create thickness or length.

    • You can easily add some contrast colour strands
    • Extensions can be coloured, styled and treated like your own hair

  • Hair Care Tips & Facts

    LONG HAIR

    How do you keep it in peak condition? Everyone wants the shine, lustre, manageability and look they see on TV and in magazines. Well, give us photoshop, fishing line and shine oil and we can do all that! But at the end of the day you need to be able to achieve great results at home without fuss.

    • The first step is a great brush – you need something to disperse the natural oil through your hair
    • The second step is great tools – whether you blowdry, tong or iron we can suggest the best equipment to do what you want with the minimal amount of damage
    • The next step – a great cut, one that doesn’t need 3 hours to blowdry and tons of product to keep it looking great
    • Then – shampoo and conditioner that will look after the shine, manageability, condition and tangles without you breaking into a sweat
    • And don’t forget the treatment (whether in-salon or at home) to make those long locks look great and feel great

    Come in and see one of our professional stylists and we can not only give you that great cut, we stock and recommend the best products and equipment to help you achieve exactly what you want…healthy, shiny and manageable hair.

    SHORT HAIR

    Women and men with short hair forget that they need to maintain that cut to keep hair manageable. Short hair really needs to be cut every 4 to 6 weeks (some of our male clients come every 2 weeks).

    Dependant on the season and what activities you do (sport, gym, swimming) short hair really needs to be looked after. Treatments are important and another thing that people do when they have short hair is wash it more than is necessary.

    You may only need to wash your hair twice a week; in fact the more you wash; the more oil your scalp produces. So come in and talk to an escapade expert for the right advice – and the right products.

    CURLY HAIR

    We are the curl kings! If you want to add curl, reduce curl, take it away, enhance your natural curl or straighten it permanently then make an appointment today. We have all the answers to your curly questions

    GREY HAIR

    At some stage in our lives, both men and women will experience the on-set of grey hair.

    Contrary to popular belief, greying hair is not always related to age. Some people start to grey in their early 20’s or 30’s; this is called premature greying.

    Everybody is different but the pigment of our hair is generated in the same way. Initially, hair is white. The cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes” generate pigments; the main one being Melanin. This gives our hair its colour. In general, the more melanin present, the darker the hair colour.

    When these Melanocytes stop producing the pigment the result is transparent hair. The transparent hair against your healthier, darker hair gives the appearance of Grey Hair. In reality, the hair is not grey but transparent.

    The main reason for our hair turning grey is heredity. Just another thing to blame on your parents! But this is not always the case.

    The pigment in the hair shaft is generated from cells at the base of the root of the hair and as we get older these cells start producing less pigment until there is no pigment at all in the hair and we end up with the transparent hair.

    There is no scientific evidence that any specific diet, herb, supplement or natural product can prevent or reverse grey hair.

    Some people believe that if they pluck out the grey hair “coloured” strands will grow back – this is not true. Grey hair stays grey!

    Grey hair can be harder to colour because it is more resistant to hair colour due to a decreased amount of melanin in the strand and it becomes translucent.

    Grey hair can increase if you are deficient in Vitamin B12 or if you suffer from a thyroid imbalance. Smokers are also more likely to have grey hair because it robs the oxygen levels from the blood.

    Hair cannot turn grey overnight. As you age, the production of your colour pigment slows down and grey hair begins to appear.

    You can get the early onset of grey hair from Alopecia Areata induced by trauma, bad health or similar conditions. This happens when thicker, darker hair falls out and the hair that grows back has been weakened and melanin production decreased.

  • Hair Loss

    HAIR CYCLE

    Each hair follicle produces a number of hairs throughout your life. The first hair grows from the follicle approximately 1cm per month for about two to six years. After this time the hair will die and no longer grow and it will then sit dormant in the follicle for a further three months. After this three month interval the new hair starts to grow out of the follicle pushing the old one out. This is a normal process that continues throughout your life. The average person loses about 50 hairs a day.

    GENETIC HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN & MEN

    Androgenetic alopecia is a medical term for common baldness and is caused by hormones in genetically susceptible people. Inheritance of androgenetic alopecia is uncertain but it can be inherited from either parent.

    Hair loss can begin at any age after puberty. Once it begins it progresses relentlessly leading to advanced baldness over a variable period of time - as short as 5 years and as long as 20 years and often occurring in fits and bursts.

    It is imperative that you don’t commence any hair loss treatment available at Escapade without first having a full consultation with our highly trained Creative Director, Charlie Rizk.

    NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY (DIET)

    Sudden weight loss can precipitate hair depreciation and chronic starvation may result in dry, lifeless, fine hair. Many medications and chronic disease treatments can also cause hair loss.

    Lack of minerals or vitamins play a huge role in the maintenance and strength of healthy hair:

    • lack of Zinc
    • Iron
    • Folic Acid
    • B1 and B6 (lack of these 2 vitamins increases hair loss)
    • B12 (feeds the roots)
    • Biotin
    • Omega 3
    • Vitamin C stimulates the hair growth and regulates the generation of pigments in the hair strand

    Many photo nutrient deficiencies have been known to increase hair loss or decrease the strength and condition of hair.

    Post operative hair loss is a non-scarring occipital alopecia that follows prolonged surgery. Caused by a combination of pressure during prolonged operations and exacerbated by hypothermia.

    The following are some causes for post operative hair loss:

    • General Anaesthetic can play an essential role in hair reduction
    • Menopause (changes to hormone levels in the body)
    • Severe chronic illness
    • Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments

    Quite a few medications have also been reported to cause severe hair loss, although hair loss will cease once the medication or treatment has ended (in most cases).

    Complete spontaneous recovery generally occurs quickly as most of the hairs have only fractured and are still in the anagen stage.

    PRE OR POST NATAL HAIR LOSS

    Numerous women experience excessive amounts of hair loss either during pregnancy, after the birth, or while breastfeeding.

    In many cases it has a lot to do with nutritional factors as well as the fact that towards the end of the pregnancy your hair will grow approximately 10% faster than normal. Therefore once shedding commences which could be from 3 to 12 months after giving birth, it will be more noticeable.

    Fear not, continue to brush, style and treat your hair as normal and book an appointment at Escapadehfb for a Kerastase Strengthening (Vita-Ciment®) Indulgence Ritual, in conjunction with a full hair analysis.

    Activance Spray or Kerastase Aminexil Ampoules will also help to revitalize your fragile hair.

    Many women may find that they are iron or zinc deficient either during pregnancy or after the baby. It is essential to have blood levels checked to make sure your body has the ability to rebuild itself.

    HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS

    Here are some handy treatment tips in order to prevent long term hair loss or re-activate short term hair loss:

    Firstly, book a consultation with Charlie Rizk, Creative Director at Escapadehfb. This consultation can help to determine the exact cause of your hair loss.

    Secondly, through our extensive research and previous experiences in dealing with hair loss, we will be able to properly advise you on which treatment would work best for you.

    • Activance blocks DHT’s negative effect on hair growth & promotes an anti-ageing effect by mopping up toxic molecules & free radicals. It revitalises hair follicles, increases cell multiplication & lengthens the growing phase of your hair cycle – naturally reducing hair loss.

    KERASTASE AMINEXIL HAIR TREATMENT to treat short term hair loss

    Collagen hardening interferes with the normal functioning of follicles. The thickened hair roots prevent the hair bulb from returning back to its place in the skin. So, although new hair is produced, it’s not able to settle and the growth phase is disrupted.

    We are making a distinction between hair loss of short and long duration depending on the type. If, for example, stress, seasonal influences, pregnancy or medical treatment (i.e. prescribed medication) are the reasons for hair loss, then normally one treatment is enough for your hair to recover. It is also sufficient for the hair root nourishment to reach and repair the damaged hair follicle.

    Each Kerastase Aminexil treatment system comprises 42 ampoules. Apply one full ampoule to your scalp every day for six consecutive weeks and massage in.

    KERASTASE DENSIFIQUE HAIR DENSITY PROGRAMME to regrow the hair.

    Containing Stemoxydine, this hair treatment programme contains 30 ampoules. You can apply to wet or dry hair.

    Simply apply to the scalp, rub in and leave it in. You do need to use this programme for 3 months so you gain the maximum benefit. It can successfully regrow up to 1,700 hairs after that 3 month period.

    KERASTASE BAIN STIMULISTE SHAMPOO

    Used in conjunction with Kerastase Aminexil Hair Treatment, Bain Stimuliste is a gentle bath to maintain hair density and promote healthier, thicker hair.

    With a combination of an anti-bacterial agent to reduce sensitivity, a soothing agent to reduce irritation and itching and a regulating agent to restore the scalp to its normal level it helps to restore a balanced scalp, essential for healthy hair growth.

    KERASTASE VITA-CIMENT® (STRENGTHENING) INDULGENCE RITUAL

    This treatment consists of the following:

    1 – Hair is cleansed with either Kerastase Bain Force Architecte or Bain Therapiste fortifying, cleansing shampoo for weakened hair.

    HAIR REPLACEMENT SYSTEM

    Charlie Rizk, Creative Director of Escapade Hair Face Body has spent many years researching Hair Replacement Systems and has found the most natural looking and undetectable system available on the market today. Charlie has undergone extensive training in the USA and his knowledge and expertise are only a phone call away.

    Hair pieces provide an affordable solution for men and women who have suffered hair loss and are actively seeking a solution. It’s true; hair loss is, in large part, an issue with genetic origins. However, through perfectly fitted hair pieces, we can restore what nature has taken away over time.

    Our custom-made hair pieces are 100% European hair and with more than 24 shades to choose from there is no problem matching your own hair colour exactly. We can add highlights and you can choose between different densities of hair coverage to make your hair piece even more natural looking.

    X-FUSION HAIR BUILDING FIBRES

    At last there is a safe, natural way to eliminate the appearance of baldness and thinning hair. It’s not a spray, cream or cover-up. In fact, it’s so scientifically advanced that it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

    XFusion Hair Building Fibres is an amazing new complex of tiny, microfibre “hairs” that blend perfectly with your hair. XFusion fibres are made of the same organic Keratin protein as your own hair. Through a unique process, these fibres are restructured to merge undetectably with your hair. You will instantly see a fuller, more natural looking head of hair that is undetectable to others.

    All information contained herein should be read at your own discretion. Escapadehfb will not be held liable for any person taking matters into their own hands. No treatments are guaranteed as all clients are individual and will have individual requirements.

  • Keratin Treatment

    A revolutionary process that repairs damaged hair to leave it soft, shiny and frizz free for up to 4 months. The Keratin Treatment is an amazing service that produces a semi-permanent way to smooth wave and banish frizz.

    It will last for up to 2 months on virgin hair and 3-4 months on chemically treated hair (subject to using a sulphate-free shampoo). The Keratin Treatment is not a relaxer or “straightener” – it is a treatment that naturally straightens your hair and can be used over existing permanent straighteners, relaxed or coloured and chemically treated hair.

    Children over the age of 12 will benefit from this treatment but we don’t recommend you have the treatment if you are pregnant or while you are nursing. We would also request that you don’t bring your children with you when you have the Keratin Treatment because the smell may irritate them.

    The Keratin Treatment is not a chemical process that breaks the bond of the hair and restructures it. Unlike chemical straighteners and relaxers that have a very high pH level, the Keratin Treatment has a lower pH scale than pure water. You don’t need to neutralize it with another chemical. The Keratin Treatment is a gentle, nourishing treatment that washes out over time.

    WHAT IS KERATIN?
    Keratin is a type of protein high in sulphur and the amino acid, cystine. This makes it tough, elastic and insoluble. Keratin is the main protective substance in our hair, skin and nails and is derived from pure wool harvested from sheep.

    HOW DOES IT WORK?
    Keratin has strong protective qualities that improve the hair both inside and out. The unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a “liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head. Smaller Keratin molecules penetrate the hair cortex improving and repairing the quality of the hair from the inside. Keratin fills in the gaps between the cuticle and the hair shaft and is then sealed with a high heat flat iron. This eliminates the frizz, adds strength and elasticity and at the same time achieves the straightening effect because the added weight of the Keratin smoothes and weighs down each strand of hair. The larger Keratin molecules coat the hair cuticle on the outside and protect it from environmental damage from things such as UV rays, smog and other pollutants.

    CAN I COLOUR MY HAIR?
    Absolutely! If you want colour or highlights it is best to do them before the Keratin Treatment because this will prolong your colour result. When the treatment is being applied, a high heat flat iron is used which crystallizes the product onto the hair, thus sealing the cuticle. If you want to colour afterwards you need to wait at least 3 weeks because the cuticle layer won’t be porous enough to absorb the colour. Cutting should be done after the Keratin Treatment so that dead ends can be trimmed.

    BASIC DO’S AND DON’TS
    DO (three days following treatment)
    1. Wear hair down at all times
    2. Use blow dryer or flat iron as needed (in case your hair gets wet during the first 3 days)
    3. Wear a silk scarf to pull your hair away from your face

    DON’T (three days following treatment)
    1. Don’t wash your hair
    2. Don’t tie hair into a pony tail
    3. Don’t use hair clips
    4. Don’t use hair bands
    5. Don’t sweat – avoid working out
    6. Don’t put hair behind your ears
    7. Don’t use bobby pins
    8. Don’t use glasses to hold your hair back

    Our colour pricing is also based on the amount of product used; not the length of your hair. Someone with long, fine hair might actually need less product than a client with thick, short hair. If unsure you are welcome to ask for a quote during your consultation process.

HIGHLIGHTS

A term used when a certain amount of texture or a variety of colours are applied to parts of your hair using foiling or streaking techniques to lighten natural or artificially coloured hair.

LOW LIGHTS

Lowlights are the opposite of highlights and are mainly used when we want to deepen or change reflects in light hair. Lowlights are an option if you want to disguise grey hair but not cover or commit to re-growth. We can decide on a colour that is the same as your natural colour and blend out some of your greys, or we can use lowlights as a subtle or very strong contrast in between lighter pieces of hair.

FOILS

Foils give total control to use various tones or shades thick or thin, natural or dynamic, dependant on your preference. Foils can be used on partial areas of the head to exaggerate or accentuate a haircut. The amount of foils applied will depend on your hair cut, the effect we want to achieve and how much existing colour you have in your hair.

Full head: strands spaced throughout your whole head (what you usually have the first time you try this type of colouring)

Half head: if your hair is long or to add texture and contrast between the nape area and the top of your hair. Half head is also more economical than full head foils as the labour and the colour mixed is less

Crown and Parting: this is when you need a quick set of highlights or an emergency touch-up between a full head or half head service.

STREAKS

If you have existing artificially darkened hair and want to go lighter, this would generally be the safest technique. We are able to apply the highlight bleach to all the hair that has been pulled through the cap at the one time, which gives us a little more control on areas of application, an even level of lightness and allows no colour to touch the scalp

If you are rushed for time or have a limited budget, then streaks could be used to obtain similar results to foils.

SLICES, CHUNKS, SLASH BACKS AND CREATIVE BLOCK COLOURING

Using Permanent or Demi colour, we can creatively section panels of hair and apply different shades, contrasts and section sizes to create subtle or dramatic effects that best complement you and your hair cut.

ULTIMATE SHINE

L’Oreal’s Diacolor Richesse and DiaLight demi-permanent colour ranges are ideal for caring and treating hair. They give you superb added shine and softness with the effects of a soft natural colour which fades gradually. Designed to either darken or highlight reflects within your hair to shades of red, copper, brown, ash etc.

  • Not time consuming, processing can take between 5 to 25min
  • Low maintenance, no re-growth
  • Can cover up to 30% grey hair
  • Great for freshening permanent colours in-between regular salon visits
  • Contain no ammonia, for little or no disturbance to the hairs natural pigment
  • Enhances foils, highlights etc
  • Safe enough to use during pregnancy

Crystallizing Straightening

SHISEIDO CRYSTALLIZING STRAIGHTENING SYSTEM

Escapadehfb gives you immediate results with PERMANENT benefits!

A revolutionary service that permanently smoothes, straightens and adds shine to wavy, curly or frizzy hair.

Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening is a precise but relatively simple 2 step process….straightening and then neutralizing. The procedure takes approximately 4 hours (dependent on the length and thickness of hair).

A thorough consultation determines which of the 3 Crystallizing Straightening formulas we will use on your hair.

Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening Systems not only straighten curly or wavy hair, but conditions the hair leaving it shiny, healthy and pin straight permanently.

The price of the Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening can be determined after a thorough consultation. Pricing will differ subject to the length of the hair, the density, the amount of product used and the application time involved.

Cutting & Styling

Finding the right Stylist is an important moment for anyone. Placing your trust in someone who will become responsible for how you look is huge. At Escapade we truly believe that we are blessed to be able to enhance your feeling of well-being.

Our precision cutting skills are developed through rigorous training and our creative talent will help you achieve the exact look to make you feel “WOW”. Let us design a cut especially for you that will grow out evenly and not need high maintenance styling at home to keep it looking good.

We thrive on a challenge; from the curliest to the straightest; from the shortest to the longest – every hair type is welcome at Escapade & that includes the kids too…we love pampering our “smallest” clientele as much as the adults.

The same goes for our Styling. A night out? A formal? A wedding? For no reason at all? Blow-dry, GHD curls, finger waving, upstyling or flat-ironing. Styling is something we’re passionate about.

Extensions

Nowadays the market is full of different systems or types of hair extensions and at Escapadehfb our highly trained team will be able to advise you on which system will work best for you.

The reality of hair extensions is that they are all good when used on the right hair type to achieve the desired result, but wrong decisions on the attachment and hair type can result in some serious damage to your hair (and scalp).

Our team of dedicated, qualified and highly trained staff will be able to advise you on which system and hair will be suitable for you.

A quote for Hair Extensions will be provided to you following a thorough consultation with your stylist.

Prices vary subject to the look you want to achieve; whether it’s to increase length, add body or volume or perhaps just a few strands for colour and texture.

The amount of hair needed to achieve your desired result differs from person to person and this can affect both the cost of the hair and the amount of labour time allocated for application.

Following your consultation, hair is specially ordered for you therefore a deposit is required because personalised colour matching means the hair ordered for you can’t be used on another client.

Hair extensions are not suitable for everyone and even with the numerous techniques available; escapadehfb strives to keep up to date with all methods of application through thorough research and extensive training.

We only use the highest grade of European (or Remy) human hair because we know, through experience, that the use of cheaper grade alternatives won’t give you the result you expect. Our hair wefts come in a maximum length of 22 inches and 20 colours.

It is essential that you have a thorough consultation. We will need to know about your lifestyle, your hobbies, your usual hair care routine and your expectations. Why? Because at escapadehfb we believe in getting it right the first time!

Hair extensions should not be an “impulse buy”. It is imperative that you understand what is needed to meet your realisation of 3 to 4 years growth in a couple of hours.

There is “extra work” involved in caring for your new hair, but it’s worth it…results are amazing subject to your commitment.

CLIP EXTENSIONS

Locking clips are sewn onto human hair wefts. They snap closed into natural hair to add additional length or fullness. Apply and remove as often as you like.

Advantages

  • Change length of your own hair instantly
  • Control when your want longer hair
  • Easily applied and removed
  • Clip extensions cause no damage to your natural hair
  • Very reasonably priced compared to permanent extensions

  • They need some love and care to keep them in peak condition

FUSION TECHNIQUE

Advantages

  • They look natural and won’t fall out easily
  • You can easily add some contrast colour strands
  • Extensions can be coloured, styled and treated like your own hair
  • Have as many or as few as you like
  • They add body, volume and length

Disadvantages

  • They are heavy if you need a full head application
  • You must wear them tied up at night to prevent tangling and to relieve tension on your scalp from pulling

MICRO-CLIP TECHNIQUE

Small pieces of 100% human hair are attached with a small plastic sheath that fits onto your existing hair using a clamp implement. This forms a semi-permanent bond (hair to hair). This technique can be used to create thickness or length.

Advantages

  • They look natural
  • You can easily add some contrast colour strands
  • Extensions can be coloured, styled and treated like your own hair
  • Have as many or as few as you like
  • They add body, volume and length

Disadvantages

  • You must wear them tied up at night to prevent tangling and to relieve tension on your scalp from pulling

Fusion bonded and Micro-clip extensions need to be retightened every 8 weeks (depending how fast your hair grows)

Hair Care Tips & Facts

LONG HAIR

How do you keep it in peak condition? Everyone wants the shine, lustre, manageability and look they see on TV and in magazines. Well, give us photoshop, fishing line and shine oil and we can do all that! But at the end of the day you need to be able to achieve great results at home without fuss.

  • The first step is a great brush – you need something to disperse the natural oil through your hair
  • The second step is great tools – whether you blowdry, tong or iron we can suggest the best equipment to do what you want with the minimal amount of damage
  • The next step – a great cut, one that doesn’t need 3 hours to blowdry and tons of product to keep it looking great
  • Then – shampoo and conditioner that will look after the shine, manageability, condition and tangles without you breaking into a sweat
  • And don’t forget the treatment (whether in-salon or at home) to make those long locks look great and feel great

Come in and see one of our professional stylists and we can not only give you that great cut, we stock and recommend the best products and equipment to help you achieve exactly what you want…healthy, shiny and manageable hair.

SHORT HAIR

Women and men with short hair forget that they need to maintain that cut to keep hair manageable. Short hair really needs to be cut every 4 to 6 weeks (some of our male clients come every 2 weeks).

Dependant on the season and what activities you do (sport, gym, swimming) short hair really needs to be looked after. Treatments are important and another thing that people do when they have short hair is wash it more than is necessary.

You may only need to wash your hair twice a week; in fact the more you wash; the more oil your scalp produces. So come in and talk to an escapade expert for the right advice – and the right products.

CURLY HAIR

We are the curl kings! If you want to add curl, reduce curl, take it away, enhance your natural curl or straighten it permanently then make an appointment today. We have all the answers to your curly questions

GREY HAIR

At some stage in our lives, both men and women will experience the on-set of grey hair.

Contrary to popular belief, greying hair is not always related to age. Some people start to grey in their early 20’s or 30’s; this is called premature greying.

Everybody is different but the pigment of our hair is generated in the same way. Initially, hair is white. The cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes” generate pigments; the main one being Melanin. This gives our hair its colour. In general, the more melanin present, the darker the hair colour.

When these Melanocytes stop producing the pigment the result is transparent hair. The transparent hair against your healthier, darker hair gives the appearance of Grey Hair. In reality, the hair is not grey but transparent.

The main reason for our hair turning grey is heredity. Just another thing to blame on your parents! But this is not always the case.

The pigment in the hair shaft is generated from cells at the base of the root of the hair and as we get older these cells start producing less pigment until there is no pigment at all in the hair and we end up with the transparent hair.

There is no scientific evidence that any specific diet, herb, supplement or natural product can prevent or reverse grey hair.

Some people believe that if they pluck out the grey hair “coloured” strands will grow back – this is not true. Grey hair stays grey!

Grey hair can be harder to colour because it is more resistant to hair colour due to a decreased amount of melanin in the strand and it becomes translucent.

Grey hair can increase if you are deficient in Vitamin B12 or if you suffer from a thyroid imbalance. Smokers are also more likely to have grey hair because it robs the oxygen levels from the blood.

Hair cannot turn grey overnight. As you age, the production of your colour pigment slows down and grey hair begins to appear.

You can get the early onset of grey hair from Alopecia Areata induced by trauma, bad health or similar conditions. This happens when thicker, darker hair falls out and the hair that grows back has been weakened and melanin production decreased.

Hair Loss

HAIR CYCLE

Each hair follicle produces a number of hairs throughout your life. The first hair grows from the follicle approximately 1cm per month for about two to six years. After this time the hair will die and no longer grow and it will then sit dormant in the follicle for a further three months. After this three month interval the new hair starts to grow out of the follicle pushing the old one out. This is a normal process that continues throughout your life. The average person loses about 50 hairs a day.

GENETIC HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN & MEN

Androgenetic alopecia is a medical term for common baldness and is caused by hormones in genetically susceptible people. Inheritance of androgenetic alopecia is uncertain but it can be inherited from either parent.

Hair loss can begin at any age after puberty. Once it begins it progresses relentlessly leading to advanced baldness over a variable period of time - as short as 5 years and as long as 20 years and often occurring in fits and bursts.

It is imperative that you don’t commence any hair loss treatment available at Escapade without first having a full consultation with our highly trained Creative Director, Charlie Rizk.

NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY (DIET)

Sudden weight loss can precipitate hair depreciation and chronic starvation may result in dry, lifeless, fine hair. Many medications and chronic disease treatments can also cause hair loss.

Lack of minerals or vitamins play a huge role in the maintenance and strength of healthy hair:

  • lack of Zinc
  • Iron
  • Folic Acid
  • B1 and B6 (lack of these 2 vitamins increases hair loss)
  • B12 (feeds the roots)
  • Biotin
  • Omega 3
  • Vitamin C stimulates the hair growth and regulates the generation of pigments in the hair strand

Many photo nutrient deficiencies have been known to increase hair loss or decrease the strength and condition of hair.

Post operative hair loss is a non-scarring occipital alopecia that follows prolonged surgery. Caused by a combination of pressure during prolonged operations and exacerbated by hypothermia.

The following are some causes for post operative hair loss:

  • General Anaesthetic can play an essential role in hair reduction
  • Menopause (changes to hormone levels in the body)
  • Severe chronic illness
  • Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments

Quite a few medications have also been reported to cause severe hair loss, although hair loss will cease once the medication or treatment has ended (in most cases).

Complete spontaneous recovery generally occurs quickly as most of the hairs have only fractured and are still in the anagen stage.

PRE OR POST NATAL HAIR LOSS

Numerous women experience excessive amounts of hair loss either during pregnancy, after the birth, or while breastfeeding.

In many cases it has a lot to do with nutritional factors as well as the fact that towards the end of the pregnancy your hair will grow approximately 10% faster than normal. Therefore once shedding commences which could be from 3 to 12 months after giving birth, it will be more noticeable.

Fear not, continue to brush, style and treat your hair as normal and book an appointment at Escapadehfb for a Kerastase Strengthening (Vita-Ciment®) Indulgence Ritual, in conjunction with a full hair analysis.

Activance Spray or Kerastase Aminexil Ampoules will also help to revitalize your fragile hair.

Many women may find that they are iron or zinc deficient either during pregnancy or after the baby. It is essential to have blood levels checked to make sure your body has the ability to rebuild itself.

HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS

Here are some handy treatment tips in order to prevent long term hair loss or re-activate short term hair loss:

Firstly, book a consultation with Charlie Rizk, Creative Director at Escapadehfb. This consultation can help to determine the exact cause of your hair loss.

Secondly, through our extensive research and previous experiences in dealing with hair loss, we will be able to properly advise you on which treatment would work best for you.

Some of the treatments that we currently have available at Escapade are:

  • 30 minute Consultation & Analysis
  • Activance Hair Stimulant
  • Kerastase Aminexil Ampoules
  • Kerastase Densifique Hair Density Ampoules with Stemoxydine
  • Kerastase Bain Stimuliste Shampoo
  • Kerastase Bain Force Architecte or Bain Therapiste Shampoo
  • Kerastase Vita-Ciment® (Strengthening) Indulgence Ritual
  • L’Oreal Serioxyl Anti-Thinning Programme

ACTIVANCE HAIR STIMULANT
with Rhodanide

Revive your thinning, damaged & lifeless hair. Get thicker, shinier, stronger hair with the Activance Scientific Solution.

  • Thickens & Moisturises
  • Activance both swells the hair keratin & allows your hair to retain at least 50% more moisture than normal, increasing the thickness of each strand of hair & giving you greater volume

  • Strengthens & protects
  • By smoothing your hair cuticle & strengthening the keratin, Activance gives you greater hair elasticity, prevents deterioration, damage, breakage & adds natural shine

  • Stimulates hair growth
  • Activance blocks DHT’s negative effect on hair growth & promotes an anti-ageing effect by mopping up toxic molecules & free radicals. It revitalises hair follicles, increases cell multiplication & lengthens the growing phase of your hair cycle – naturally reducing hair loss.

KERASTASE AMINEXIL HAIR TREATMENT to treat short term hair loss

Collagen hardening interferes with the normal functioning of follicles. The thickened hair roots prevent the hair bulb from returning back to its place in the skin. So, although new hair is produced, it’s not able to settle and the growth phase is disrupted.

We are making a distinction between hair loss of short and long duration depending on the type. If, for example, stress, seasonal influences, pregnancy or medical treatment (i.e. prescribed medication) are the reasons for hair loss, then normally one treatment is enough for your hair to recover. It is also sufficient for the hair root nourishment to reach and repair the damaged hair follicle.

Each Kerastase Aminexil treatment system comprises 42 ampoules. Apply one full ampoule to your scalp every day for six consecutive weeks and massage in.

KERASTASE DENSIFIQUE HAIR DENSITY PROGRAMME to regrow the hair.

Containing Stemoxydine, this hair treatment programme contains 30 ampoules. You can apply to wet or dry hair.

Simply apply to the scalp, rub in and leave it in. You do need to use this programme for 3 months so you gain the maximum benefit. It can successfully regrow up to 1,700 hairs after that 3 month period.

KERASTASE BAIN STIMULISTE SHAMPOO

Used in conjunction with Kerastase Aminexil Hair Treatment, Bain Stimuliste is a gentle bath to maintain hair density and promote healthier, thicker hair.

With a combination of an anti-bacterial agent to reduce sensitivity, a soothing agent to reduce irritation and itching and a regulating agent to restore the scalp to its normal level it helps to restore a balanced scalp, essential for healthy hair growth.

HAIR REPLACEMENT SYSTEM

Charlie Rizk, Creative Director of Escapade Hair Face Body has spent many years researching Hair Replacement Systems and has found the most natural looking and undetectable system available on the market today. Charlie has undergone extensive training in the USA and his knowledge and expertise are only a phone call away.

Hair pieces provide an affordable solution for men and women who have suffered hair loss and are actively seeking a solution. It’s true; hair loss is, in large part, an issue with genetic origins. However, through perfectly fitted hair pieces, we can restore what nature has taken away over time.

Our custom-made hair pieces are 100% European hair and with more than 24 shades to choose from there is no problem matching your own hair colour exactly. We can add highlights and you can choose between different densities of hair coverage to make your hair piece even more natural looking. Being 100% human hair, they can be coloured, foiled, blow dried and treated just like your own hair.

X-FUSION HAIR BUILDING FIBRES

At last there is a safe, natural way to eliminate the appearance of baldness and thinning hair. It’s not a spray, cream or cover-up. In fact, it’s so scientifically advanced that it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

XFusion Hair Building Fibres is an amazing new complex of tiny, microfibre “hairs” that blend perfectly with your hair. XFusion fibres are made of the same organic Keratin protein as your own hair. Through a unique process, these fibres are restructured to merge undetectably with your hair. You will instantly see a fuller, more natural looking head of hair that is undetectable to others.

All information contained herein should be read at your own discretion. Escapadehfb will not be held liable for any person taking matters into their own hands. No treatments are guaranteed as all clients are individual and will have individual requirements.

Keratin Treatment

A revolutionary process that repairs damaged hair to leave it soft, shiny and frizz free for up to 4 months. The Keratin Treatment is an amazing service that produces a semi-permanent way to smooth wave and banish frizz.

It will last for up to 2 months on virgin hair and 3-4 months on chemically treated hair (subject to using a sulphate-free shampoo). The Keratin Treatment is not a relaxer or “straightener” – it is a treatment that naturally straightens your hair and can be used over existing permanent straighteners, relaxed or coloured and chemically treated hair.

Children over the age of 12 will benefit from this treatment but we don’t recommend you have the treatment if you are pregnant or while you are nursing. We would also request that you don’t bring your children with you when you have the Keratin Treatment because the smell may irritate them.

The Keratin Treatment is not a chemical process that breaks the bond of the hair and restructures it. Unlike chemical straighteners and relaxers that have a very high pH level, the Keratin Treatment has a lower pH scale than pure water. You don’t need to neutralize it with another chemical. The Keratin Treatment is a gentle, nourishing treatment that washes out over time.

WHAT IS KERATIN?
Keratin is a type of protein high in sulphur and the amino acid, cystine. This makes it tough, elastic and insoluble. Keratin is the main protective substance in our hair, skin and nails and is derived from pure wool harvested from sheep.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Keratin has strong protective qualities that improve the hair both inside and out. The unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a “liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head. Smaller Keratin molecules penetrate the hair cortex improving and repairing the quality of the hair from the inside. Keratin fills in the gaps between the cuticle and the hair shaft and is then sealed with a high heat flat iron. This eliminates the frizz, adds strength and elasticity and at the same time achieves the straightening effect because the added weight of the Keratin smoothes and weighs down each strand of hair. The larger Keratin molecules coat the hair cuticle on the outside and protect it from environmental damage from things such as UV rays, smog and other pollutants.

CAN I COLOUR MY HAIR?
Absolutely! If you want colour or highlights it is best to do them before the Keratin Treatment because this will prolong your colour result. When the treatment is being applied, a high heat flat iron is used which crystallizes the product onto the hair, thus sealing the cuticle. If you want to colour afterwards you need to wait at least 3 weeks because the cuticle layer won’t be porous enough to absorb the colour. Cutting should be done after the Keratin Treatment so that dead ends can be trimmed.

BASIC DO’S AND DON’TS
DO (three days following treatment)
1. Wear hair down at all times
2. Use blow dryer or flat iron as needed (in case your hair gets wet during the first 3 days)
3. Wear a silk scarf to pull your hair away from your face

DON’T (three days following treatment)
1. Don’t wash your hair
2. Don’t tie hair into a pony tail
3. Don’t use hair clips
4. Don’t use hair bands
5. Don’t sweat – avoid working out
6. Don’t put hair behind your ears
7. Don’t use bobby pins
8. Don’t use glasses to hold your hair back

Pricing Policy

At Escapade we work a bit differently to other salons.

We have a tiered pricing structure for our cutting and styling so you have the choice to pay the price you want dependant on the level of experience of your chosen stylist.

The levels are: Creative Director (Owner) 25+ years; Head Stylists 20+ years; Advanced Stylists 8-15 years; Stylists 3-6 years

Our colour pricing is also based on the amount of product used; not the length of your hair. Someone with long, fine hair might actually need less product than a client with thick, short hair. If unsure you are welcome to ask for a quote during your consultation process.
