Kaizo teaches dip-dye

Dip-dye has been big news for some time now.  The list of celebs to have sported the look is pretty much endless.  Alexa Chung, Drew Barrymore, Rachel Bilson, and runway goddess Gisele Bundchen to name just a few.

As you’d expect from the name, dip dying is all about using contrasting tones on the hair to give the impression that only the ends have been dipped in colour.

By and large most people work it with darker roots and lighter tips, but not everyone.  Gwyneth Paltrow’s flirtation with the trend showed how darker ends can work equally well, and a whole load of other celebs have taken it a step further with rainbow tips, including  Amber Le Bon, Kate Bosworth and Jamie King.


The beauty of the dip-dye trend is its versatility – whether you fancy natural grads to give a subtle lift or candy coloured tips that pack a punch, you can make it work.  And it’s pretty much flattering on anyone, whatever length of hair or colour you have.


At Kaizo we’re firm believers in the fact that sharing knowledge and educating others makes you a better hairdresser.  That’s why our talented stylist Paolo gave 20 final year Hairdressing Students a demonstration in the salon last week to show them how to achieve a flawless dip-dye.   The students had travelled all the way from Italy to hone their hairdressing skills and the session was part of an ongoing relationship we have with the School.

With many years of industry experience behind her, Kaizo co-founder Yuka was also on hand to share some of her knowledge on hair trends, salon skills and career possibilities.

Dip-dye has proved itself a firm favourite both on and off the runway and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon.  So if you haven’t already, it’s about time you got involved in the dip-dye action!

with her as a witness.

Can You Prevent Grey Hair?

Posted on 


Yes you can……According to L’Oreal, they are developing a pill that can prevent hair from going grey.

Not great news for hairdressers!

So how can this be good news for a hair colour developing company?

For the time being (While the pill is being developed) it is indeed a great form of PR/Marketing as L’Oreal will benefit from the attention of the media and the curiosity of the consumer. Once the pill has been fully tested and becomes available on the market, the product will surely come at a cost.

The pill will have to be taken once a day for a lifetime, which is raising concerns around the medical sector on its long term effects and side effects, not to mention that whoever does decide to use this pill to halt the greying process will need to start taking it before they turn grey as it cannot reverse the transaction.

Now we would like to ask you, would you be prepared to take a pill day after day for the rest of your life in order to prevent grey hair?

While waiting for the new technology to hit the market, we at Kaizo Hair Salon have decided to stick to our Schwarzkopf colour range.
