A SMALL, suburban salon has scooped a prestigious award, thanks to some unique hairevaluating technology.
Tyler Reid Hair, in Canning Vale, was named WA/NT Salon of the Year at the Australian Hair Industry Awards and is a finalist for Australian Salon Business of the Year at Hair Expo Australia.
The salon’s secret weapon is augmented trichoscopic imaging, a diagnostic program that depicts hair cuticle structure, fragility diameter and other unique hair patterns.
Salon owner Simone Lee said the process allowed them to specifically tailor haircuts to suit each customer, right down to which scissors and styling tools would best suit the hairstyle.
“We are the first salon in the nation and possibly the world to use augmented trichoscopic imaging for personalised hair cuts,” she said.
“I’m surprised no one thought to do this before; after all, you don’t cut bread
