The architect team got together with the lovely people at Made in Leeds TV to make a film about the wonders of our amazing, in salon Olaplex treatments, take a look here….

The architect team (Claire, Abi, Shannon, Crystal and Louise) produced some fabulous work at the prestigious Leeds Fashion Initiative show at the City Museum. The show aimed to highlight Leeds’ position at the top of the UK fashion market and featured high end brands like Burberry, Aquascutum, Agi and Sam and Giles.

“It was an amazing experience, being asked to produce looks for the fabulous labels and VIP audience was a real thrill, our team came up with some amazing looks, it was a real pleasure to work alongside the guys from Westrow too” The night was an incredible success – let’s hope the initiative get more high end labels to show in Leeds”

We now have the incredible, groundbreaking, new hair repair process that actually rebuilds and mends the hair…
Vogue called it “The holy grail for coloured hair”

Grazia said “I was dumbfounded. Never has my bottle-blonde hair looked so shiny or felt so soft – without also feeling very, very greasy. It swooshed. It bounced”

At Architect we say Olaplex allows us to actually permanently improve the strength and condition of the hair, to take hair colouring to a new dimension,
call the salon for a consultation

OLAPLEX is a new revolutionary product developed by two leading researcher scientists in the US, Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker. This team has succeeded in developing an innovative new molecule, free from silicone, phthalate and DEA, which protects and restores the broken disulfide bonds of the hair structure before, during and after chemical treatments.

Disulfide bonds are the linkages that hold together the chains of the Keratin protein that form your hair. They are broken during thermal, mechanical and chemical services, resulting in damaged hair, split ends, colour fading and generally lack lustre unmanageable hair.

The unique thing about Olaplex is that it restores and strengthens the bonds permanently and your hair actually becomes stronger and as a result of this the quality of your hair gets better. This product is applied as a standalone treatment, mixed in colour, or in the case of badly damaged hair both, for a stylist this means we can push the boundaries of our colouring and styling without compromising the quality of your hair. Olaplex is not a conditioner, conditioners work on a microscopic level and patch up damage to the hair making it feel smooth and silky, Olpalex restores the linkages in the hair on a molecular level, it won’t make it silky – you’ll still need a conditioner for that – it rebuilds the hair. It is never tested on animals.

Quote from Louise… After using this product on clients and being really impressed, I’ve finally….. (too busy to ever get my hair done!) had time to actually use Olaplex on my own hair and I’ve got to say it is awesome! As they say its not a conditioner so my hair didn’t feel silkier, it just felt stronger, more substantial, it behaved really well, dried quickly, looked more volumous

From a personal point of view it’s fantastic, my hair feels fab, strong, and manageable. From a professional point of view this product is a game changer, it’s different to anything we’ve worked with before, it’s going to allow us to achieve amazing results on clients hair that we wouldn’t have touched previously, and our regular clients will have the hair they dreamed of …..AWESOME!!! Can’t wait to get it on my clients hair!!!!!

Vogue Says… One week and five washes down and my hair is just as soft, lustrous and strong as on the day. Total freedom of colour and elimination of damage – what’s not to love?
