Kirra is well known for producing gorgeous sun kissed almost Virgin hair like Balayages. “I love beautiful glossy natural colours, big bouncy blow dry’s, curls and waves & so do all of my clientele! Balayage is not a trend, it is here to stay! There is so many variations and they never look exactly the same. Natural goddess looking hair will NEVER go out of fashion!”
