Privé offers hair styling but not ‘hairdressing,’ which excludes cutting, colouring, and perms. We recommend ‘dry styling’ for better, longer-lasting results, achieved by using heat tools on dry hair. We also offer makeup looks from natural to full glam but do not provide partial services like ‘Just eye makeup.’ We do not offer manicures, facials, threading, or brow tinting.
Hair must be dry for the appointment and washed the day before unless clearly stated that you would like a blow-dry only.
Ultimate convenience. The Prive stylist can come to you at any time of day or early hours to ensure you are ready for their occasions.

Natural light is preferred, and power points are essential. The Privé stylist will have a thorough 1-on-1 consultation with you to discuss the desired look, ensuring we achieve the perfect result.

ABOUT ÉRIVE FAQS
Privé was founded in 2018 by Jade Crosland and began with humble beginnings. The small team offered mobile services with a mission to provide salon-quality results to clients in the comfort of their own homes. Crosland’s vision for Privé aimed to remove the stigma of mobile services. Typically viewed as a less professional option, Privé sought to establish a team of senior stylists to deliver salon-quality results while simultaneously elevating the status of mobile hairdressing.
