Talei & Malia

Meet Talei and Malia!

Talei and her daughter Malia have been coming to Maurice Meade for years. So, we thought what better way to honour our stunning clients, than with a photoshoot and interview! 

Both these ladies have amazing natural curls. The Maurice Meade team gave Talei some beautiful barrel curls to give her hair that lush and bouncy feel. And Malia a timeless blowout so every wavy frame’s her amazing cheekbones! (I wonder where she got that beautiful bone structure from, Talei!)

Who knew this mother and daughter duo were amazing athletes! Malia represents WA on the state basketball team. And Talei loves training at the gym and the tennis courts. They say their life is ruled by sporting events and training. When these ladies aren’t at the courts playing basketball or tennis, they love to have a little pamper day.

Talei has been coming to Maurice Meade for many years, knowing that our experienced staff would take care of her daughter’s long locks, she then started booking Malia in when she became a teen wanting to start her fabulous hair journey. And they haven’t looked back.

In-salon these ladies like to get softening highlights to lift their natural brunette to the next level. Having those sun-kissed highlights makes their hair dimensional whether they choose to wear it natural or styled straight. 

Talei and Malia are regulars at the Me by Maurice Meade Claremont salon.

Malia loves a bit of glam on a special occasions. Our makeup artists make sure she’s walking out that salon door looking and feeling her best. Most recently Malia got her Ball Glam done with our team and she says ‘At my ball, I received compliments on my newly lightened and styled hair. It was an amazing feeling considering it was such a big change for me, MM had done a beautiful job.

Our hair experts prescribed Malia the Chronologist collection by Kérastase to revitalise and purify. This collection removes impurities from the scalp and hair fiber. All those hours on the court being fabulous on the basketball court put your hair through the wringer. The chronologist collection has hyaluronic acid and vital E to strengthen and nourish her hair fiber. – Perfect!

When Malia is glamming up, she wears her hair straight or with a soft wave. When heating her hair with styling tools she uses the Chronologist Thermique Heat Protectant to ensure her lengths after lightening are safe from damage.

Talei always gets an Innoluxe and Kérastase Fusio Treatment with her cut. The combination of the Innoluxe treatment and the Fusio dose gives your hair maximum shine and nourishment! These treatments come in so many personalised variations, so our experts always prescribe the right treatment suited to your unique hair type. Immediately targeting hair issues such as radiance, reconstruction, nutrition, density, and discipline. This treatment will last up to 20 washes. And that scape massage is always bringing her back for more!

Talei isn’t afraid to experiment. She loves to change it up with a L’Oréal Steam-pod straight style to shock her friends with a transformation. But has recently been looking to embrace her beautiful curls!
Talei’s natural hair texture is tight spiral curls. Trying to constantly tame her curls with leave-in conditioner, she needed to change up her routine. She says, ‘When the Curl Manifesto collection by ­­was launched, I was instantly obsessed.’ With Manuka honey enriched with minerals, Curl Manifesto by Kérastase collection is a curly-haired girl’s dream!

The curl collection has helped Talei tame her curls and gain hydration and moisture. Especially with the Curl Manifesto Refresh Absolu spray helping form beautiful second-day curls. Talei usually wears it up, but she has recently been embracing her new hair routine life and focusing on her hair health so she can wear it down more often. Her hair is now bouncy, and lush.

For 48 years Maurice Meade has celebrated all women and their individual beauty. These profiles are a homage to all our amazing clients that put their trust in our talented Hair artists to help them look and feel their best.
