If you’re due for a little self-care and indulgence, you’ve come to the right place.
Jessica James is The Barracks first-ever luxury hair salon and it’s turning heads for all the right reasons. With over 15 years of industry experience, Senior Store Manager, Kassy, understands the importance of consistently high standards for her services. She adopts a similar standard when selecting her team, with hairstylists Emogen and Amber.
Kassy gave us the inside scoop on Summer’s upcoming hair trends, which will include “big bouncy blow drys, big soft waves and lots of texture”. As they say, go big or go home. And we have all spent enough time at home, so join us in signing up to the Jessica James Blowdry Club. Whether the salon is close to home or your workplace, the program is perfect as the weekly subscription gives you unlimited blow-drys. As Kassy explains, “you can come in on a Monday for fresh hair to start the week and then again on Friday, enjoy a glass of bubbles and get ready for the weekend”. Follow them on Instagram to be the first to know about their Friday special blowdry promotions. Yes, that is code for $40 blow-drys!
As for the salon? Decked out like a five-star boutique with slick granite, plush fabric chairs, modern Art Deco glamour vibes and a fabulous product range showcasing Kevin Murphy haircare products that use the finest, sustainable ingredients nature has to offer. Kassy confirms these “salon treatments are amazing. They deliver deep conditioning, shine and long-lasting nourishment to help strengthen and repair everyday damage caused by heat styling and chemical treatments”. The pastel packaging is just an added bonus.
Or if you want to mix it up, the salon also has a new range, Original Mineral. “Their vision is to bring nature and luxury in a line of Australian born haircare and styling products that are safe, effective and beautiful to use”, says Kassy. These products are a big yes from us, replacing harsh chemicals with active natural extracts and minerals. Safe to say, at Jessica James, you can expect indulgence all the way.
We understand that hair comes in a range of textures and thicknesses, so when you’re not getting the ultimate hair care treatment at Jessica James, it’s important that you’re using a shampoo that’s right for you.
