Knotted plait


The first weekend in April saw our boss lady Rachel jetting off to Sydney for a couple of days of Mr Smith education. This saw her  spending Monday and Tuesday with 3 global session stylists who work in amazing cities including New York, Paris and Switzerland…heaven!

They work exclusively on Fashion Weeks all over the world doing the hair of gorgeous models.

Rachel recently took  some in salon training with the Chilli stylists on the new techniques that were taught so they are all up to date on these hot new hair styles!

If you need an on trend upstyle or blow dry, please to be sure to mention this blog on your next booking at organic hair salon Perth!

So most importantly, what’s trending for the next 6-12 months?

  • Heavily textured hair
  • Wind swept hair
  • Festival style upstyles
  • Peek a boo braids

Chilli Couture Commercial Shoot!

Short Blonde Hair with Full Bangs - Chilli Couture Hairstylist Perth

Natural Hair Dye in Red - Chilli CoutureWhat a huge but fun day the 20th of February was doing the Chilli Couture Commercial Shoot!!!

The Chilli family Rachel Walker, Tom Jarvis,
Nakia Stevens, Rachel Hall and our Chilli Babies
Grace and Charlie spent the day creating some beautiful hair for our Commercial Shoot.
We will use these shots for marketing and advertising purposes, so it was just a day of no pressure, no stress and loving what they do- creating stunning hair cut and styling with clean beautiful make up.

As always our models were prepped using only 100% vegan products and natural hair dyes that contain no PPD, Amonia or Resorcinol. Can’t have healthier hair than that!
Our amazing make up artist for the day was Tracey Kaye…seriously talented! A huge thanks to her for working non stop to make our models even more flawless and enhancing their natural beauty.

These hot styles are trending big time this winter so if you are are a new look anytime soon, give us a call to book a complimentary consultation with one of our hair stylists in Perth.

The Chilli Hair Challenge

The Chilli Hair Challenge Participants

So the gals of the Chilli Couture family (no boys allowed) decided to start the Chilli Hair Challenge or #chillihairchallenge. This experiment  involved seeing who can go the longest with out washing their hair. Ewwww I hear you say? Well it was either going to be innovative with lots of new hair styling techniques invented or just a plain hair disaster!


  • No washing of hair
  • Must look presentable
  • No hats
Tom and Charlie weren’t invited to partake simply because they have short hair and they could’ve either cheated or won. Hallsy denied the invitation all together because she “frequents the beach too much”.
Jordan, Grace and yours truly caved (9 days was my limit!)
Nakia lasted a little longer by going a whopping 12 days-but the final straw was when her little boy vomited in her hair (excuses!)
Going the strongest was boss lady Rachel Walker and our other receptionist Bex…the battle was on!
Rachel caved on day 17 as she was meeting the new boyfriend’s family. (eeeeeeeek!!!)
Soooo it could have been the dark horse Bex taking out the prize…oh wait there was no prize!?
Did you know the hair actually starts to self cleanse after 10 days?! Crazy right! The point of doing this whole challenge was to prove to our clients that its not necessary to wash your hair every day and by doing that it can actually make it oilier!
So keep the Chilli Hair Challenge in mind next time you reach for that hair shampoo bottle and remember: Your scalp and sebaceous glands can be trained!


Bex tricked Rachel and said she was going to wash her hair on the evening of Thursday the 30th, but did not!

So Bex has WON!!!


Mr Smith Mousse is on the shelves!



Yaaaay!!!! After a few delivery delays due to flooding (!?) we finally have our mitts on this luscious product. From the mouth of our Chilli Stylist Rachel Hall, who has been using it A LOT in the last week.

“The Mr Smith Mousse is a lightweight product that is perfect for 90% of hair types. I go to Mr Smith Mousse when I require volume, movement and slight texture in my blow dries.  The product spreads evenly and dries into hair perfectly without  leaving any signs of stiffness or residue. With slight fruity notes the mousse is refreshing and allows hair to keep its shape days after styling. A great product for in salon and for clients to use at home.”


Retailing at $37.00
Peta Certified Vegan
Sulfate & Paraben Free
Designed, Developed & Made in Australia by Mr Smith

AHFA Awards

Well sadly we missed out this year…I am seriously surprised as the collection the stylists put together for the AHFA (Australian Hair Fashion Awards) was AMAZING!!

This collection is called Club Kids Collection and inspired by the nightclub scene of New York City in the late 80’s and early 90’s and in particular “the club kids”

This collection reflects the outrageous colours, textures and costumes of the 80’s club scene, where hair was loud and proud. Colours were vibrant and everything had a sense of attitude.

Chilli Christmas Party!!



A Peek As to How Hairdressers in Perth Party

Sunday the 4th of December was party time! Meeting at the salon at 11am for a quick pre-party champers we got picked up by All Ways Perth Party bus hire (we can highly recommend Lionel from this company-he was awesome!)

First, heading off to Caversham House for a delicious lunch. Must say beautiful food, faultless service and a beautiful setting.

Then off to some wineries, Old Youngs vodka distillery and Feral Brewery. Not to mention the heap of fun & dancing we had on the bus!

As always it was then decided the best idea would be to head back to Chilli Couture Hair Salon owner house, at Rachel’s, to carry on (which involves playing dress ups from her wardrobe)…as per usual 🙂

And yes, most of us felt a little sorry for ourselves the following day.
