Happy New Year clients, friends and readers. 2012 will be a very exciting time for me and I am very excited to be sharing it with you.
Firstly, the New Year marks the launch of my own private hairdressing brand, Michael Johnson Hair, something that I have been working on for over a year now and can’t wait to share with all of you. The last twelve months have seen me hard at work setting up a very relaxed and functional studio space in the heart of Sydney’s inner west. In the studio I have been kept busy product testing to ensure I am delivering the latest in haircare technology for my clients. On that note, I am so pleased to announce my new partnership with the ground-breaking colouring and haircare line Original&Mineral. Already the latest buzz word with beauty editors and supermodels alike, this Australian owned product company is the pioneer of Clean Colour Technology, something I believe is the way of the future. Make sure you check out my Philosophy page above to read more on my partnership with O&M and how you can enjoy all the benefits of going clean and ammonia free with your hair colour!
Furthermore, I am continuing my long-standing relationship with Label M using their Professional Styling Range both in studio and on all of my photo shoots. Developed by Toni&Guy Global Creative Director Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, and used by the Label M Artistic Team backstage at New York and London Fashion Weeks respectively it is a staple in my studio and session styling kit. Check out some of the latest Label M products here at their website. Below is a short video of their latest collection:
Another new development is the brand new blogging home of Michael Johnson Hair, powered by Blogger. As much as I loved the look and layout of tumblr, I wanted to deliver more to you guys in the way of multiple pages (as you can see in the links bar below my logo), something that was crucial in advertising the new studio set-up. Check out the blogger site and have a look around at the different pages, and feel free to shoot me through any suggestions or any haircare related questions using the contact form.
Alternatively, if you are after an appointment you can easily book this via the site’s appointment feature here (or use the link above). Otherwise you can shoot me through an SMS appointment request at +61 415 110 459. Please make sure to include your full name, appointment time/date required and what service you are after.
Hope you all enjoy the new site. You can still access your favourite older posts from here, but most new updates will be coming from blogger with all the latest in trends, the things I am loving right now and also more of my work and the work of others that inspires me.
Looking forward to hearing from you all soon. Wishing everyone a safe and happy start to 2012!

I am loving the idea of dark, velvety, goth revival locks in a very real way coming into the European winter and a very cool look for those of you who are daring enough (maybe a whole tie in with my firm belief in the 90s revival!!) . Most important thing to remember with any colour change, is that it MUST work with your complexion otherwise you can actually look ill. Here are some examples of runway inspired BLACK BLACK BLACK hair that I love.
My advice to you??…….if you are unsure: Go for it!!! you know you wanted something different and this beautifully rich colour will add unmatched shine to your locks, and make you stand out in the crowd!
this is an old image but I love the wigs they worked for this YSL show….

And of course the beautiful Dita Von Teese wearing jet black in a smoking hot way
