Tried & Tested

I’m the first to admit that I’m lazy when it comes to my hair. Before my appointment at Lily Jackson, it had been at least a year since I’d had a cut, and I’d resorted to home colouring because it’s inexpensive and fast. But when I realized that I hadn’t worn my locks down in more than three months, I decided that it was time to trust my hair care to a professional. Jules Peacocke founded the Darlinghurst salon Lily Jackson in 1998 – before that working in leading salons in New Zealand and London – and has built up an incredible knowledge of hair in her many years in the industry. Unlike most stylists I have come across, Peacocke hides her knowledge in an immense amount of modesty; she knows her stuff, but doesn’t feel the need to show it off with over-the-top and impractical suggestions. Instead, she listens to how I spend my days, how much time I have to spend on my hair, what I like and dislike, and then recommends a cut and colour that will fit all my needs. Given that I’m getting rid of a significant amount of hair, Peacocke suggests we donate it to Sustainable Salons, an initiative that unites participating salons in a common goal of minimising waste (my hair will be stuffed into massive nylon stockings then used to soak up oil to prevent environment contamination after a spill. The Sustainable Salon commitment also sees Peacocke monitor chemical waste; recycle all packaging, bottles, plastic, paper and cardboard; re-use all of our paper; and use energy efficient lighting. The salon’s environmental ethos aside, I love my new look, and am happy to say I now wear my hair down at least 50 per cent of the time.
