The Chilli Team

Happy 6th Birthday to Us!
We celebrated our 6th birthday in June but held an intimate party for close friends and family in July.
The weather was wild but that didn’t stop us or our hardcore fans from having a great night.
We glammed up and had beautiful models to showcase the latest hairstyles and hair colours and wearing stunning gowns from Zhivago was the icing on our birthday cake!
A massive thanks to DY.o Events aka Duo for their gorgeous salon make over, flower wall and turning Chilli Couture into a winter wonderland. You girls are superstars! If you are ever in need of a design team for an event, we can highly recommend these two ladies.
Make up was done by the beautiful Jessie Appleyard Artistry-this gal knows her stuff! Her sweet nature and bubbly personality just warms all our hearts!
Delicious vegan food supplied by Roark & Co was washed down with bubbles and more yummy beverages. And we were lucky enough to be

nibbling on the remainders the next day! We all know that food is the way to a hairdressers heart!
Roark & Co have the most relaxed boho cafe located on Blinco Street in Fremantle, if you are down that way, be sure to check it out.

I can promise you won’t be disappointed!

Our star photographer for the night was Tasha Faye. A massive thank you to her for taking beautiful shots of everyone on the night.

So again, a huge thanks to everyone who was involved and those that shared this wonderful fun celebration with us.

Chilli Couture Commercial Shoot!



What 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 with clean beautiful make up and styling.

As always our models were prepped using only 100% vegan products and colours 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 stylists.
Here is the link for Tracey Kaye Makeup Artist.







So the gals of the Chilli family (no boys allowed) decided to start the Chilli Hair Challenge. 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 styling techniques invented or just a plain hair disaster!

No washing hair
Must look presentable
No hats

Tom and Charlie weren’t invited to partake simply because they have short hair; they could’ve either cheated or won and 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 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.
