My experience

After entering the salon I had a feeling I would be in good hands, the lovely professional friendly staff gave me a warm welcome. They immediately took my jacket and offered me something to drink. It's important to have a good consultation with your stylist and discuss all the options. Stephanie Boutard Kalin is head colorist at Toni Kalin and really knows everything about that! She listens to you and gives you suggestions on what style would look good with your face and color. The way she does her job is just amazing, you can see in her eyes that she loves what she's doing and takes the time to do it perfectly! 

Trends change quickly, that's the reason why it's very important to discuss all the options in advance with your colorist! Stephanie thinks that every haircolor should look natural, even if you choose for a big change or a pastel color. Grey is currently the big trend but requires heavy decoloration and a good maintenance. At Toni Kalin they always use Olaplex in their colorings to protect the hair and provide extra care during the coloration. Olaplex is an amazing series of 3 products that work to repair and prevent damage to your hair that occurs during the coloring process. It's not a conditioner that will just coat your hair. My hair felt really soft en looked so healthy! 

They're also using the best hair dryer ever! The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, it helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect the natural shine. The air temperature is measured 20 times every second, to keep the temperature under control. Read everything about the Dyson on my blog: "DYSON SUPERSONIC: The Tesla of hair dryers".

Toni Kalin is seriously the best team of hairdressers I know. From pixie cuts to long locks: they know hair. You can find Toni Kalin in Hoogstraat 7 in Antwerp. I highly recommend them.
