One of Ruby Assembly’s favorite clients are The Laneway salon group, who have ultra-luxe locations in both Brighton East and Mordialloc. Headed up (pardon the pun!) by co-Directors Paula and Katie, The Laneway group provide exceptional customer service and show a true dedication to ongoing client communications – apres salon experience. Of late they’re  becoming darlings of the fashion blogger set – having been visited by star blogger Esme and The Laneway recently, and there’s more of your favorite bloggers on the wait list to have their tresses treated by Paula and Katie’s team. Watch this space!

Late last week I was lucky enough to visit The Laneway prior to an event, and as I hadn’t had a trim in quite some time was looking forward to having the silky-smooth locks care of Paula and Gabby (head colorist and Goldwell specialist). I didn’t want to have any color put through my hair, but I still wanted that freshly-dyed silky smoothness. Gabby (below, top left) suggested a clear coating to enhance my hair’s strength and natural chestnut shade.

The Laneway stock a range of exclusive products, including the eco-conscious mineral based brand Original and Mineral. Look at those beautifully bright colors all lined up in a row!

The Laneway also stock cult US brand KMS California. Top left, the whole Laneway team. Right, Gabby deftly applying a clear glossy color coat to my hair.

The finished result – a high, high and ultra polished ponytail that lasted TWO WHOLE DAYS!  Thankyou Paula and The Laneway ladies for making me feel very pampered. Apres cut and color, I bounced out of the salon ready for a beaut weekend.
