Salon Feature: C W Hair – Natural Hair, Natural Products & Natural Talent

With nearly 30 years of hairdressing experience and a style that is personalised and modern, no one encapsulates ‘Melbourne chic’ quite like Chris Welch of CW Hair. 

Reflecting on his experience working in some of Melbourne’s best salons, Chris has developed a simple philosophy; “Natural, wearable, low-fuss hair.” Chris’ approach to hairdressing reaches far beyond just hair, taking inspiration from fashion, music, street style and his time as a session stylist and makeup artist.

“ I use free-hand cutting techniques to enhance shape and movement, while carefully considering personality and lifestyle.”

Chris’ free-hand cutting technique offers a personalised service to his clients, working completely in harmony with each individual’s natural features and face shape to provide a textured result that doesn’t require hours of styling at home.

Chris used the Moisture Range on both clients pictured, the Sculpting Lotion on Gabriela (right) and the Universal Styling Cream on Julia (left).

CW Hair offers a relaxing and minimalist aesthetic which is further emphasised by the light-filled space overlooking a beautiful view of Collingwood. When Chris decided to find his own salon space, it was important to create a private, one-on-one, premium service for his clients and it’s clear that the atmosphere and his love for cutting is what keeps his clients returning

Chris is also passionate about the products that he chooses to use in his Salon opting for only vegan and cruelty-free products.

“I support Australian businesses and choose organic and natural hair products, drinks and cleaning products.”

One of the most wonderful parts of being a Salon professional brand is connecting with like-minded hairdressers who are not only passionate about the art of hair, but about the health of hair, our bodies and our planet. When we asked Chris about why he chose EverEscents, he detailed his journey to finding us:

“I researched and sampled quite a few “natural” brands before finding EverEscents. I wanted to support an Australian company whose values aligned with mine. Most others I tried were nowhere near natural or organic and loaded with potentially harmful chemicals! Everescents really do walk the talk.”

When it comes to Chris’ favourite EverEscents product, we loved learning that almost every one of his client’s last step is the Heat Protector & Finishing Cream.
“It’s great for adding a lived-in texture and subtle movement or to calm any frizzy ends. The natural fragrance is beautiful too.”

We also couldn’t help but notice that Chris offers a beautiful add-on service where clients can choose the “Treat Me” option at the basin, which includes the choice between the Organic Deep Treatment or the Organic Remedy Treatment.
