Hairdos and Hairdonts from the Experts at Prema

First established in Sydney in 2004, Prema opened a New York City salon in 2015 on Stanton Street.

On May 21, a group of lucky Aussie women joined salon owner Francesco Ruggerino and his talented team for a glass of wine and a fun session of hair styling advice for the busy New Yorker.


It’s no secret that this city’s climate (hello humidity) and pollution can play havoc on your hair. So stylists Dale and Linda ran through a number of creative ways to keep your hair looking fabulous without any hassle.

With the help of hair models Kylie and Dolores, we were shown ways to maintain a blow out for the next day (loose Princess Leia buns and a shower cap, of course), breathe life into limp hair with a few braids and some heat, tame unruly curls with the help of a hair scarf, as well as how to apply product. Did you know there is a right and wrong way to spray? There is.

After the tutorials we were each treated to a one-on-one styling session focusing on our own needs. As always, it was a great opportunity to meet some wonderful fellow Aussie women, in the gorgeous setting of this Soho salon.
