Hair Salon Review: Blackberries for Hair, East Perth.

I had been thinking about getting hair extensions for a little while now. As a lot had changed in my life recently, so I decided new hair was just what the doctor ordered!

I went into Blackberries for Hair in East Perth and had a free consultation with the owner, Evadney, who has been specialising in hair extensions for over 30 years. During the consultation she explained the various ways she can apply the hair and what she recommends based on your hair type. I decided to have the microlink technique with Russian hair.

My hair was looking rather unintentionally balayaged, so she gave me the option to go to my regular hairdresser with the sample of the hair to get my hair a more uniform colour so the hair extensions would blend better.

Evadney applied the microlink hair extensions by separating my hair into even triangle sections with the same amount of hair she clamps onto it. She explained if not enough of your hair is used and then a hair extension is attached which is too heavy, it can lead to your hair getting pulled out, the hair extension falling out or even bald spots!

Lucky for me Evadney is a perfectionist. Once all the hair extensions were expertly put in, she cut and blended my natural hair seamlessly into my new long hair. The whole process took about 4 hours. During this time I had a great chat with Evadney, watched a man get dreads, read some new magazines and learnt how to look after my new hair.

I’m so happy with my new long beautiful hair. I walked out of Blackberries feeling great, confident and a little bit like Rapunzel…

Blackberries is offering an October special, $550 for 120 strands of Russian hair instead of the usual price of $990 which I was very happy to take them up on!

    Your hair looks stunning! Great photo, you can’t tell they’re extensions at all 🙂

    I think it looks great too and I love the curls. Did you do them with GHD? One day I hope to learn the magical art of GHD curls!!! 🙂

    Thanks Megan! I was a bit hesitant to get extensions because I was worried you’d be able to see it wasn’t my real hair so I was really happy it turned out looking so natural.

    Annette: Yes I did it with a GHD, it took me about 6 months of perseverance to master the art of the GHD curl. Once you have worked it out it just seems so easy! I can teach you if you like?

    Hi Jana,

    Yes that sounds wonderful! Hahaha, I have often wanted a personal hair coach as I’m quite hopeless with mine 😉 xx
