Baobab Seed Oil Posses a noteworthy array of vitamins including A, D and E, with Vitamin E being a superior antioxidant that helps fight ageing. Provides moisturising benefits to the hair while improving elasticity and tone. It also encourages regeneration of hair cells.

Hydrolysed Quinoa Binds to the hair shaft and penetrates the cortex, bringing moisture and repair deep into the hair while making it shiny. It is one of the best sources of protein and Amino Acids while being gluten free.

Immortelle Provides repairing and soothing properties.

Hydrating mask

Best for: Normal to dry hair that feels brittle and dull.

Key Ingredients

Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Very moisturising for the skin and the hair and is a powerful antioxidant.

Evening Primrose Oil Hydrates and softens the hair. It contains Phospholipids that are hydrophilic, meaning they are moisture loving and are attracted to water.

Shea Butter Delivers moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairing and protecting against weather damage, dryness and brittleness. It also absorbs quickly and completely into the hair and scalp to rehydrate without clogging the cuticle. It is particularly beneficial for processed and heat-treated hair. It restores lustre to damaged hair.

Kakadu Plum Native to the Australian Northern Territory, this fruit has the highest concentration of natural Vitamin C of any known plant. Smooths the surface of the hair to lock in moisture.

Bergamot Essential Oil Antioxidant rich and a natural source of vitamins.

STYLE IT SPRING

Photographs by Berkley Vopnfjord www.berkleyvop.com Written By: Miriam Putters

This island, its nectarine sunsets and agate shores, induces summertime vibes even in rain storms.
We’re dreamers, but so is Spring, and this season’s all about effortless transitions, easier outfits, and fresh routines. It's time to ditch that waxed jacket and cruise around in a loose-knit sweater instead.

Spring’s ultra-smooth essence was the inspiration behind our recent photo-shoot. Keep reading to find out how the owners and creative visionaries, Kerryn and Jen, created this delicate look. But before we get into things, here’s another professional secret...

Did you know that Heartwood & Co.’s official, and incredible, cosmetic collection is cruelty-free, non-comedogenic, made in Canada, and will soon be available online, in addition to the boutique? Yeah, it’s a big deal.


So, let’s chat makeup. Spring’s makeup trends feature softer palettes with a powdered finish and a subtle glint. Bolder brows are a must. Bolder brows take dewy eyes and bright skin to the next level. Here’s what Kerryn had to say:

“I applied three shades of Face Hilites Cream: “Fantasy”, “Breathe”, and “Flirty”,  on her eyes, lips, and cheeks. The cream to powder texture is lightweight and never oily. If you apply the cream with a foundation brush the shimmer really pops on any high points. 

I chose our “Voyer” blush  for a light and even glide. Available in an array of fine and highly pigmented powders, our blushes are triple milled and smooth.

I used  ‘Blondie’, our Brow Fix Tint & Shaper, to tame and fill her natural brows.  It’s a water resistant, tinted gel formula, with little fibers that perks brow density and is super easy to apply.

I love our creamy lipsticks because they're packed with antioxidants, Vitamin E, and natural Vanilla extract. This shade is “Film Buff” and a favourite neutral.”


Now, let’s talk hair. Spring hair trends are just as gentle and minimal. We recommend lightening those ends with a little balayage or booking our newest colour service, the “Quick Add On: Sun Kissed Balayage”. In just a few extra minutes at the sink, this quick service provides a super subtle highlight.


If you didn’t already know, all the colour and hair products at Heartwood & Co. are designed by Australian stylist, Kevin Murphy. The Kevin.Murphy collection is the perfect companion to our talented team, we both want clients to leave with fantastic feeling, and looking, hair. His collection is Sulphate, Paraben, and cruelty free. Most of the ingredients are natural fruit antioxidants and extracts which weightlessly moisturizes and strengthens all hair types. Here’s what Jen had to say:

Berkley

Berkley

“I began by prepping the model’s hair with Hair.Resort Spray, a honey and citrus spray that can be used wet or dry, and volumizes “beachy” texture. Then I set some loose waves with a curling wand.

To tame the volume I pinned a few strands back and used Kevin Murphy Super.Goo for a pieced and slick finish. Super.Goo is a no flake, water soluble gel that features Green Tea, Bamboo, and Nettle extracts.

I finished with Session.Spray to hold and finally threw in a quick topsy tail up-do to change it up. This hair spray is a firm hold that contains wheat proteins and natural fragrance oils. It’s also a UV shield for colour protection.”

Love this look? Well check back on the blog for a proper D.I.Y. guide to achieve this hairstyle at home.

In case you’re wondering, yes, all the hair and makeup products mentioned in this post are currently available at Heartwood & Co. and are totally worth it.

Innovative Nail Service: Overlay

Innovative Nail Service: Overlay

Have you ever wanted to grow your nails but weren’t able to because you had brittle, weak nails? Our nail expert Annie created the “Overlay” service which is the perfect solution to help you achieve the nail shape of your dreams!

Annie says that “the difference between an overlay and a full nail extension is primarily in its foundation. In a full extension, one would have their nails built or sculpted out by way of free forms. Making them longer, whatever length the client desires. For clients who want a more natural approach, overlay would be the way to go. There is no added length in an overlay, it is applied directly over your nail bed. Giving you the option of maintaining a shorter length if you so desire, or progressively growing out your length. The resin used for the overlay is non-toxic, breathable and is actually composed of the same materials as dental resin.”

The results are fantastic and are whole team here at Heartwood has never had such beautiful nails! Say goodbye to chipped nails and peeling off your gel polish. Overlay can keep your nails looking great and help them grow out if you want to have a longer length. Annie recommends to maintain your overlay every 2-4 weeks depending on how quickly your nails grow.

Annie is accepting new clients! You can book either online via http://www.heartwoodandco.com/onlinebooking-1/ or call 2503856277. See you soon
