From the more modest subtle hues (Nicole Kidman – 2000-2014), Deep Earthy tones (Marcia Cross, Emma Stone) or more daring brighter shades (Nicole Kidman Pre 2000, Cynthia Nixon and Lucille Ball). If copper is the colour for you there are many different shades to choose from, and can suit many styles, skin and eye tones.

The Balayage Look

balayageimage1Balayage is the technique used to create the Umbre look. To get the perfect sun-kissed highlights, you basically have two

options: traditional foil highlights and the newer, edgier “Balayage.” This technique creates very natural- looking highlights without developing a noticeable and obvious regrowth. A style that’s a bit edgy but still looks elegant and classy, balayage has been and always will be extremely popular with all the stars and for good reason!

Can’t decide on one colour? Why not have two!

Behind the Balayage

Balayage is a method of coloring which originated in Paris in the 1970’s. The word Balayage is French for ‘To Sweep” which is a reference to how the color is applied. In the 1990’s Balayage became extremely popular in the United States. Many Stars and Models (Sarah Jessica Parker, Helena Christianson, Drew Barrybalayageimage2more) use this process on their hair.

This process varies depending on the length of the hair and the desired result. You can expect to have individual strands coloured with a brush and a backing board. Some colourists like to separate their sections with cotton wool or foil, others tease the hair in sections first then freehand colour the ends.

Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders. It is extremely effective in curly hair which you can also use different colours to enhance a ‘Sparkle’ in the hair.

Inner beauty is fantastic … but a little Balayage can’t hurt!

So if you’re sold on the balayage then come in and visit any of our excellent staff. You can pop in to any of our 8 locations across Brisbane or make a booking online.

How Hair Extensions Can Be Used

Hair extensions can be used in a variety of ways to give you the perfect look. You may be surprised by the versatility hair extensions can provide. Take a look at some ideas below for some inspiration on how hair extensions can improve the look of your hair.

Thicker Hair

If you already have the length you desire but your hair is thinner than you would like, increase the volume of your hair by adding extensions. A half head of hair extensions is perfect to bring thickness and life back to your hair.

Add Colour without Colouring Your Hair

Like the idea of adding colour to your hair but you don’t want anything permanent? Rather than lightening or colouring your own hair, choose hair extensions instead. When coloured hair extensions are placed, they mimic foils without permanently changing the colour of your hair and the colour will blend with your natural hair effortlessly.

Longer Hair

Hair extensions are ideal and commonly used for adding much-needed length to your hair. Why bother waiting for your hair to grow out when you can get long hair instantly!

Add Volume to an Up style

Many beautiful and stylish up styles require thick hair to pull off the perfect look. If your hair does not have enough volume for the up-do you desire, hair extensions can be incorporated to add the wow factor you need.

Traditional Tape Hair Extensions

The traditional tape hair extensions method is a popular choice. The tape weft method of applying hair extensions involves sandwiching a small fine slice of your hair between two 4 inch weftsof extension. This method is ideal for many hair types and is especially suited to fine hair because the tape is almost see-through and lays extremely flat against the scalp. We use the traditional tape form of extensions above beads as they are less visible, much more comfortable and are less likely to fall out. Find out below why our customers keep coming back to achieve stellar hair results with traditional tape extensions.

The Benefits of Traditional Tape Hair Extensionsextensiont

Long Lasting

Traditional tape hair extensions typically last between 6 to 12 weeks, making them perfect for anyone looking for an extension method that lasts.


Hair extensions are something you have to live with all day every day, so they have to be comfortable. Tape hair extensions feel comfortable in your hair because they lay flat against your head.

Natural Look

Thanks to the transparent tape applying flat to the head, it makes it very difficult to see where the hair extensions are applied, providing a natural and seamless look.

Tape Extensions Can Be Reusable

Tape hair extensions are usually reusable. However, this is dependent on the hair quality. Usually, it is possible to re-tape them up to three times, but we recommend that you re-visit our salon for a maintenance appointment for a professional and great looking result.

Ease of Style

Generally traditional tape hair exertions are easier to style than many other methods, even when straightening or curling is involved. This is because these extensions are applied to the head so naturally.

High Quality

When you choose tape hair extensions from Showpony, you know they are of the highest quality. The tape form of hair extensions will also not damage your hair, unlike some other hair extension options. Keep your natural hair intact and undamaged. As long as your properly care for and groom your hair, the Showpony tape extensions will leave your hair in perfect condition while they are in place and during their removal.

New Skin Weft Hair Extensions

Looking for the latest and most effective form of hair extensions available? Consider the newest method of hair extensions for your next trip to the salon. Skin weft hair salons. Skin weft extensions are the newest way to apply extensions to your hair. This method is similar to traditional tape extensions, however, the hair goes to the top of the tape and comes out evenly down the width of the tape. The skin weft method creates a final result that is superior to current hair extension methods.

extensionwThe Benefits of Skin Weft Extensions

Discreet & Natural

Skin weft is currently the most invisible hair extension method available. It even rivals tape extensions for its discreetness. Because it is flat to the scalp and can be applied close to hairlines, these extensions are virtually undetectable. These extensions are well suited to fine hair because the extensions are much less visible.


These extensions can last from 12 to 24 months as long as you are caring for your hair appropriately. This is one of the longest lasting hair extension options available. Make sure to arrange maintenance appointments with us to keep your hair extensions looking fabulous.


Much like the traditional tape method, as the extensions are laid flat to the scalp, it is very comfortable to have these extensions in your hair.

Easy to Wear

The Medium-Length Look

Medium length hairstyles are the cut of the season. Where longer, classically glamorous styles used to rule, now the more practical, low-maintenance looks are taking over. From Alexa Chung’s grown-out bob to Kate Moss’ mussed-up bed-head, Whether you’ve got longer hair and are looking to go a bit shorter, or you already have medium length hair and you’re looking for chic ways to style it, our edit of the top celebrity hairstyles is worth a look. From long bobs to tousled layered looks, there are plenty of top hair trends to try for mid-length hair.

Not too long… Not too Short… Goldi’s lock’s were juuussttt right…

If it’s sleek and straight you’re after, channel Rita Ora’s party look, or if it’s tousled and natural, Jessica Alba’s new hairdo is a must-try. Emma Stone has been wowing on the red carpet recently with curled styles, from voluminous waves to retro-look ringlets. For thinner hair types, adding choppy layers gives plenty of volume and body, while for thicker hair, longer lengths and blunt cuts give shape and movement without being too heavy. Whatever your hair type or texture, there’s a medium-length style to suit all occasions, from work to weddings. Not only is it an A-List favourite but it’s v versatile and easy to style.

The Best Mid-Length Cut for You

The Bob

The long bob is trending right now. We’re talking a blunt cut just above the shoulders that’s not too blunt. Your hairdresser can stack layers in the back to add dimension. Another option is the asymmetric bob, where you have one side longer than the other, and also have it longer in the front and shorter in the back. Combined with a low, straight fringe, you’ve really got an edge. And your neck will definitely appear to have more length. For a more edgy look, your Epic stylist can thin out the ends with scissors or a razor.

ali-larter-shoulder-length-hairThe Shag

Let’s rock’n roll baby! Whether your hair is thick or thin, medium shag hairstyles offer a ton of possibilities. You can go for the straight rock chick look in the typical shag by asking for thick piece-y ends. Or you get your Epic stylist to flick out the ends and feather some layers in. Make sure your fringe is not too short and just skims the brows and not too long that you  always have to push your hair out of your eyes. If your hair is gorgeously thick, go for disconnected layering to bring about some movement, but only minimal.

Speaking of Layering…

There are so many ways to layer medium-length hair. Try shorter in the back and longer in the front, with a long fringe swept to the side. Overall, this look is lovely, pushing hair towards the face and framing it.  The opposite is the windswept look where you have longer layers that are shorter in the back and longer in front. If you’ve got curly hair, short to medium layers will help you manage your hair and keep it looking light. Even better, parting it on the side will give you a real carefree look.alexa-chung-shag

Choppy Lob

Now the fancy name for this is ‘chin-length undercut’. Think Sienna Miller. It’s a longish bob that is cut blunt and uniform without any layering and is great for thick hair with a natural wave. The ends can be chopped, meaning they vary in length to give that jagged look. If you want to look statuesque, this is the cut to go for. You can have a part in the middle or on the side – or no part at all! But for a smooth look, you’ll need your hair serum.

Thinking of joining the ranks of these fashionistas with a mid-length cut? then head down to 1 of our 8 locations across Brisbane to visit any of our friendly staff. You can also simply book online.


Long Length Hair Styles

Long hairstyles are classic and Chic.   Long hair can be incredibly versatile, you can wear it loose, in a plait, with braids; you can wear it up or with accessories, and you can try out many different colours and styles. Some of our celebrity inspirations include Kim Kardashian with her poker-straight locks, Lea Michele with her curly umbre ‘do, Blake Lively and her gorgeous blonde mane, and Rihanna with her ever-changing long hairstyles are just a few examples. If you don’t want to wait for your locks to get long then there is always Showpony Hair Extensions! Used for the Melbourne fashion festival and by many celebrities Australia wide, Showpony Hair Extensions are perfect to add length, volume and body to your hair.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, where do you get your hair done?

How to Wear Your Long Hair

Fringe: You can make an immediate Epic change simply by having a fringe – also called a bang! To start off you can try a side fringe – not a huge commitment but still a nice change. Your bangs are basically cut to be swept to the side. You can try a wispy fringe or something heavier, depending on your face shape and features. Your Epic stylists can help you make a wise decision. For those that like to surprise their friends with some real wow factor, have a “full fringe” cut in to add a real statement piece.

Facial framing: This means a slight layering of only the hair that falls directly around your face. It can be cut in soft and subtle, or choppy and textured. This will add a level of interest to the hair without being a major home styling commitment. It’s basically a face framing technique that adds texture without removing length – whew!

Gorgeous hair is the best revenge

Medium/long layers: If your hair has that “hanging” or “lifeless” feeling then adding layers throughout your style may just be the change you’ve been seeking. Layers are great for giving bounce back to curls and enhancing the natural movement of your hair.

Colour, braids, buns and quiffs: If you don’t want to go the way of fringes, texturising or layering, there’s still so much you can do. Think colour change, braids, buns and quiffs – where the front of your hair is held up and curves backwards to be tied in a ponytail. Sometimes called the ‘cheer hairstyle’ the quiff was usually associated with dancers, gymnasts and cheerleaders. But it’s now a statement long hair style for that special occasion.

Come speak to our epic hairdressers to find out what style works best for you. You can book an appointment online or pop into any of our locations across Brisbane.


What is the best hairstyle for your face shape?

An important key to choosing the perfect haircut and style for is to know the shape of your face. A haircut that is perfect for your face shape will be flattering and bring out the best in your facial features. Don’t know your face shape? Well, get in front of that mirror and let’s sort this out!

Life isn’t perfect… But your hair can be

How to find out your face shape

Pull your hair back off your face and trace the outline of your face onto the mirror with an old lipstick or whiteboard marker. Now, is it long, oval, square, round, or heart/triangular shaped?

So now you know your face shape, what’s the best haircut and hair style for your face?


Blunt straight-across bangsBlunt Straight-across Bangs: If your oval face is a little long, straight bangs that just skim below or across the brow line can give an illusion of width, breaking up the length. The good ol’ flatiron will do a good job of keeping them blunt. Two longer pieces on either side can createBob with side bangs a softer look. (Just remember not to choose a style that’s going to cover up that lovely face.)

Bob with Side Bangs: A bob that grazes your collarbone and is set off with side-swept bangs will not only break up a long face but add softness. In fact, side-swept bangs can pretty much suit any face shape. These are a great option if you have those wonderfully annoying cowlicks or widow’s peaks.

Edgy ShoShort Cutrt Cut: If you want to be noticed, this is the cut. There’s nothing sexier and more feminine that showing off your neck and ears. Try layers through the front of your hair and bangs that finish at about the middle of your forehead. This is where a little styling wax or paste can help your style look piecey.


Straight and long: A square shape face is very strong and angular. It says, “I am a powerful woman!” If you want that message to keep strong then you can stay with very long and straight hair, which will emphasis your square strong jaw.

Wavy EndsWavy Ends: Most people with a square shape face would like to add some softness. If your hair is long you can achieve this with having waves from the ears down. How to get that look sported by Megan Fox? Use a large round brush to smooth your hair and then spritz on a wave spray.


Angled Bob: Try an angled cut with long pieces in front, which gradually get shorter toward the back. This cut has the effect of lengthening instead of widening the face. A mono-length would have the opposite effect and be too severe. The angled bob is also good for a round face.

Tousled ShagTousled Shag

A uneven cut with mixed lengths, a  shag, will give your hair body, emphasising layers and de-emphasising the squareness of your face.

 You’re only as good as your last haircut


If you have a round face, chances are you often receive remarks on how young you look! Or you may feel you look a little chubby. Never fear. If you want to look a little slimmer and more sophisticated, it’s amazing what a side part or a sleek, high ponytail or a chippy choppy pixie cut will do.

Sleek Ponytail:  If you have a round face, chances are your face might look a little chubby. Pulling your hair back into a sleek middle to high ponytail will prevent adding bulk around your face, slimming your face, and will add definition. Keep it nice and smooth, and not bouncy, and pull it back above the height of your ears.

Defined Pixie Uneven CutDefined Pixie: The popular pixie cut is certainly charming, with all the cute little pieces emphasising your cheekbones and eyes. It can balance out a stronger jawline too. Applying wax or a pomade will give definition and texture.

Uneven cut with mixed lengths: Parting you hair on the side, with long, side-swept bangs will certainly slim the appearance of your face. Combine that with an uneven cut with mixed lengths. If you prefer a centre part, grow your hair until it is just a few centimetres below your shoulders and make sure your layers end at the jawline.

Your hair is the ball gown you never take off


Bouncy BobBouncy Bob: Faces shaped like a triangle will be softened with hair that ends just below the jaw and has a little body to fill in that area around the chin and blur the chin line.

Deep Side Part: For long hair, it’s best to have a deep side part and then add some side-swept bangs. Boy, will your eyes pop! Go for long, layered waves with a few pieces of Long, Layered Waveshair falling between the ears and nose to fill in the chin area. Waves can be created, but only from the ears down.

Long, layered waves: Just as we mentioned above, allow a few pieces of hair to fall between the ears and nose. This will offset the width of your lovely ‘heart’. Longer layers again can fill in around your chin. Having your hair skimming your shoulders or just below will draw eyes away from your chinny chin chin and create balance! Keep waves, again, from the ears down. If you have full waves on top, that will only serve to emphasise the point at the bottom of your chin.
