Healthy hair comes first. At Freestyle, that’s our guiding philosophy.
At Freestyle we make sure your hair is healthy and fashionable. We will advise you on what cut, color, style will suit you best while making sure your hair stays healthy .
In keeping with this principle, we allow the cosmetic intervention in your hair and technical work, like highlights and permanents. But we do not allow ingredients and methods that destroy your hair, like ammonia or decoupage. That is why we recommend colouring your hair as a last resort solution, for women with a lot of white hair who want to cover it so that they look and feel better. To women with normal hair colour, we recommend semipermanent colours, a product with little ammonia, which gives shine without going deep in the hair.
In order to help our clients keep their hair healthy, we urge them to make use of special regimens with oils and hair masks. Especially during the summer, which lasts six months in Greece, the sea, the sun and the decoupages weaken and destroy hair. At Freestyle, we promise not only quality, but responsibility to our clients’ needs. We consider it our duty to recommend an appropriate hair regimen for stronger hair. We use the finest professional products, from the world’s best companies. That way, we can guarantee the best results.
Greek women, like most in the Mediterranean, usually have stronger and more resilient hair than northern Europeans. That’s why permanents give their hair a ‘tired’ look. We use products that are gentler on your hair, without letting them penetrate the hair deeply.
Vidal Sassoon recommends that you cannot give a second perm to hair that still has remnants of the first perm on it. That’s why we use cellophane so that the perm goes to roots only. This «perm-root» method was invented by Tac, and it gives hair the required body and curls the appropriate size, without stressing the ends. This method is particularly effective and helpful to thin hair.
At Freestyle we recommend clients to prefer highlights in shades, very close to their natural color, one or two tones lighter. Use silver paper between the tufts and embroider the thin, thread-like highlights only at the root of the hair. This process may take a little longer, but the result looks completely natural.
In a few cases we use decapage, because it bleaches the natural color and completely destroys the hair, especially in Greece. The power of the sun lightens the color by at least two tones.
Lastly, since fashion suggests it, we also do wide highlights on clients who do not hesitate to dare it.
Tac believes that women today are so busy, they don’t have time to visit their salon several times a week. However, the need for the ‘salon look’ remains. In another innovation, he invented a new technique, never used anywhere in the world. It is a new styling method that defies the laws of gravity. So, if your stylist asks if you want to ‘raise the root’, say ‘YES!’
