THE SALON  

 

Where is MONPERE salon located and how do I get there?

The salon is in Rose Bay, directly opposite the beach. Type our address 5/686 New South Head Road into your Google Maps. When you get there, you will see 'Westpac Bank' and the gift store 'byKim'. Walk down the blue painted walkway between those two shops, towards Percival Park and the beach and you'll see us at the end of the lane! Free short stay parking is available in the Parisi's car park just 2 mins away from the salon, or for longer stays you can park a little further up Newcastle St, Wilberforce Av or Richmond Rd. The Rose Bay ferry wharf is a 5 minute stroll away, or the 324 bus stops right outside.

How do I book in for a  service?

Choose your stylist based upon their  expertise.  Either message or call the salon phone/email/Instagram, or contact your chosen stylist directly on their own Instagram (see Contact Us).

Do  you have a cancellation policy?

We generally charge a 50% deposit at the time of booking for most new clients. If you cancel your booking within 48 hours, you will forfeit your deposit, and if we are unable to fill your appointment time, the remaining 50% fee will be charged up to the value of your missed appointment should you wish to rebook. If you are a continued client, we may not charge a deposit at the time of booking, but if you cancel within 48 hours we will charge up to 100% of your missed appointment fee if you wish to rebook.

I'm a stylist or freelance artist and want to 'rent a chair' or hire the salon for an event. How do I do that?

We rent our chairs to freelance artists to come and work with their own guests in the salon; we are open to a range of experts including hairstylists, make up artists, beauty therapists and manicurists. We also lease the entire space to educators looking to hold workshops and training events, as well as bridal parties looking for a 'preparation' venue ahead of their big day and for companies hosting their product launches. 

 

 

HAIR EXTENSIONS 

 

Where do you source the hair extensions from?

Our hair comes a variety of sources, such as Russia, Mongolia, India and Brazil. We only use well known brands, who ethically source all the hair that we buy, as well as providing a  hair recycling scheme for all your old hair extensions!

 

How long will my hair extensions last?

With excellent aftercare  and maintenance your hair extensions can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. The better quality hair will last a little longer, and although it may be a little more expensive, it definitely stands the test of time. Extensions will need to be well protected from the sun, pool/ocean water, suncream and other tanning products as well as heat styling tools. A complete after guide will be given to each person after their initial fitting.

 

How often do I need to get my extensions lifted?

As your natural hair grows down, so will the hair extensions you have just had fitted. We therefore recommend having your extensions lifted every 6-8 weeks.

 

What extensions are best for me, how many grams do I need and how much will they be?

As every person and their head of hair is different, we can only give a complete and accurate quote after a thorough hair and  scalp assessment.
