We haven't adopted your standard one-brand-fits-all-approach, because one brand never can. Kathy and Mark have curated the full range of hair care products we use and recommend, so Crown clients can benefit from their depth and breadth of experience. Any chemical process has an impact, of course.
What we do for our clients’ hair is always about striking a healthy balance between gentleness, the stability of the colour and the health of your hair. Every product has been chosen because it works, and it's the best for the job. Pretty much everything we use in the salon, you can purchase to take home. To us, this just makes sense.

From my point of view, as Head Colourist, it's my hero product. I’ve always been impressed at the restorative effect Christophe Robin products have on the hair after colour and the longevity of that quality. They simply work like nothing else”. Kathy Gilbert, Head Colourist, Crown Hair

Oribe is all about luxury and quality from the ingredients to the packaging. Oribe’s Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray is a perfect example of that.

Olaplex is a real game changer, devised by Dr Craig Hawker and Dr Eric Pressly, two clever science geeks working on polymers at the University of California, Santa Barbara. These guys took up the challenge to take an organic chemistry approach to create a product that can prevent and repair damage to the structure of the hair.
Olaplex means we can colour more often, go lighter and double process the same day with no risk of breakage. It can go into colour or it can be applied as a stand alone treatment. It’s revolutionary, and we don’t say that lightly. We are proud to be an Olaplex registered stockist. Vive la révolution!
