Answers to some of our frequently asked questions as we emerge from lockdown and enter the holiday season – November 2021

Eden Hair Energy’s 2019 Trend Forecast

Well we’re officially in 2019… what happened to January, in fact what happened to February?!

The question we’re all asking is what trends is 2019 going to throw at us? I’m personally hoping to see the end of the plastic jeans, who thought that was a good idea?

In 2018 we saw the comeback of the scrunchie, super high pony tails and millennial pink; this year we will still see elements of all these but adding in some more wearable colour and some retro styling. Here are a few of the fun trends we’re predicting this year.

Colour Trends for 2019

Honey and Strawberry Blonde Tones

Millennial pink was all the rage last year but this year we’ll see those rosy tones mixed in with honey, pale red and copper shades, hinting toward an enhanced strawberry blonde.


Ash Brunette and Mushroom Brown

We’ve seen ash blonde, but why should blondes get to have all the fun?! Ash brunettes are taking over with this cooler modern tone that everyone is loving.


Living Coral

We are loving this exciting colour trend. Living coral is the Pantone Colour of the year for 2019 and is beautiful, vibrant and a great way to stand out from the crowd.

Antique and Creamy Blonde

Classy and timeless. Beautiful, buttery, beigey blonde. Gorgeous!

Iced Latte / Dirty Blonde

One for the ages, we’ve seen this before and no doubt we’ll see it for some time, it’s not going anywhere! Try balayage for a lived-in look that will grow out and wear beautifully.

Embracing Grey Hair

About time! Let’s embrace our aging, it’s inevitable anyway and super classy. Take your inspiration from the stunning Jamie Lee Curtis, Helen Mirin and Diane Keaton. Even Chrissy Tegan has embraced the grey, tweeting “I have a skunk like streak of grey hair and I’m actually very into it. My Cruella dreams are coming true!”

Styling Trends for 2019

Hair clips and fun accessories

We’re seeing lots of brooch like hair clips used as statement pieces and the scarf/head wrap headbands are an easy way to elevate a casual look. Just keep clear of the kids’ tiaras and butterfly clips.


Will volume ever go out of style? I think not but this year we’ll see more relaxed waves and curls for a more lived-in look. You will also notice a lot more natural drying so ask us on what products will get you the best results for your hair type.

Hair Cut Trends for 2019

Internal Layers

Want volume and movement created by layers but when you think about layers you remember that terrible mullet you had in the early 2000s? Internal layers are the solution! Removing weight through the inside sections of your hair, allowing much more movement and body without an obviously layered look.

The Lob

We will continue to see the rise and rise of different types of lobs (longer bob). From a solid look to something more layered, we will see this length in style for some time to come.

Mini Fringe

The mini fringe is making a real come back and can be worn with any style. Perfect for those who don’t like hair in their eyes but love the look of the mod fringe. The mini fringe removes a week or two from your maintenance schedule so makes a good option for those who are time poor.  Don’t forget we offer fringe trims in salon, so you don’t have to wait for your regular scheduled appointment.

Can I make an appointment?

As we emerge from lockdown we are catching up with the backlog of clients who missed appointments during our closure as well as moving into our busiest time of year. Bookings are quite limited for the remainder of 2021 however if you are after a hair colour, hair extension or smoothing treatment service we would LOVE to hear from you and see what we can do to help (please see point below for information about haircuts).

If you would like a booking or have an enquiry, please email us at and we will get in touch as soon as possible.

But I just want a haircut!?

We have made the difficult decision to accept that we cannot currently take on any new clients for haircuts as a stand-alone service for the remainder of 2021.

We sincerely apologise if you’ve been waiting to hear from us as a new client for a haircut however at this point in time our cutting stylists simply do not have capacity to take on new clients for haircuts.

We currently have more colourists than cutters and our senior cutting team are only just able to service their existing client base. We really hope that this will change in the future as our team rebuilds and the lockdown rush settles down. We can still provide haircuts with colour services but unfortunately not as stand alone. This does not impact our existing haircut clients.

We are not currently taking new clients for haircuts as standalone services however we welcome expressions of interest from hair colour and hair extension clients – we can offer haircuts to new colour clients with colour services if we are able to find a booking time for you. Please email us at

Why haven’t I been able to get through to you on the phone?

Due to the forced closure for over 9 weeks between August and October, we have just one person dedicated to our phones for both Eden and Canberra Hair Extensions. The phone has been ringing hot and we are often unable to take all phone calls. If our receptionist is away from the desk our stylists generally cannot take calls as they are booked back-to-back with clients – this is why email is best – please email all enquiries to

I’ve been trying to book online but it isn’t working?

Our online booking is currently disabled until we get through our lockdown appointments – please email us if you’d like an appointment at

What is the best way to know if there is a cancellation?

If you haven’t been able to get a booking at the time you’d like, the best thing to do is be on our cancellation list. If something pops up at a time you’ve requested we will be in touch as soon as possible – please note if we leave a voicemail or email we will not hold the appointment so if you can get back to us or even better take our call we will have a much better chance of getting you in.

When we have cancellations on the same day as the appointment we will both contact those on our cancellation list and advertise it on our Instagram stories – @edenhairenergy and @canberrahairextensions.

If you want an appointment short notice it is always worth checking in to see if we have had a cancellation – you just never know. Worst case we will find an alternative time for you or add you to our cancellation list 😊

Are you taking bookings for 2022?

Yes absolutely! Many of our regulars book 6 – 12 months of appointments in advance – hence our limited availability coming out of lockdown. If you would like to book in for 2022 please let us know and we can arrange a time for you.

As always, evening and weekend appointments are high in demand, so if you would like to secure your spot do get in touch.

Appointments booked far in advance may be subject to change as our team may wish to take holidays or their roster may change, however our highest priority is always to those guests who have committed to us long term so we will always find an alternative appointment at a suitable time if changes are required.

How are you managing COVID-19 in your salon?

At Eden Hair Energy and Canberra Hair Extensions we always have the interest of you, our team and the community at heart. We operate with strict hygiene measures in place as well as following all ACT and Commonwealth Government guidelines and recommendations.

While it is not mandatory in the ACT to be vaccinated to visit a business or return to the workplace, we are proud to say that our whole team are fully vaccinated.

If you have been a close contact to anyone who has COVID-19, are showing any symptoms or feel you may be unwell please let us know as soon as possible to rearrange your appointment – again the best way to reach us is by email.

If you have any questions or concerns about our response to COVID-19 or have any special requirements please let us know.

Hey, my question isn’t answered here!

Thank you for reading this far, if we haven’t covered your question – you guessed it, please email us 😊 We would love to hear from you and will get back to you as soon as possible.
