A SECRET FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, MARULAOIL HAS BEEN REVEALED, REFINED AND IS READY TO WORK WONDERS FOR YOUR CLIENTS
THERE'S OIL, and then there’s MarulaOil. It has long been used in skin care and is now set to work its wonders on hair, promising to hydrate, replenish, add shine and reduce split ends. MarulaOil can: • REDUCE SPLIT ENDS BY 80 PER CENT* • IMPROVE HAIR CONDITION BY 80 PER CENT* • ADD 80 PER CENT** MORE SHINE
It renders all other oils obsolete…

NOT ALL OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL MARULAOIL HAS 50 PER CENT MORE PROTECTIVE ANTIOXIDANTS THAN ARGAN OIL – AND THAT'S NOT THE ONLY FACT THAT MAKES IT A WONDER PRODUCT
MARULAOIL is so precious, the brand only uses the first extraction after a cold-press process, so it retains the largest amount of nutrients and oleic acids – the ingredients that hydrate, replenish and protect hair and skin. MarulaOil manages every step of the process – from harvest to production – and doesn’t use any solvents, ensuring that the oil in its products is at its purest and highest quality possible.
ANCIENT INGREDIENTS, MODERN SCIENCE
SUPPORTING A GOOD CAUSE
It’s not just the high purity of oil that makes MarulaOil so good, it’s the time-release technology it uses, which nourishes and hydrates for a prolonged period. The oil contains positively charged MarulaSpheres, which adhere to negatively charged damage sites of the hair and bond like a magnet, delivering fresh bursts of MarulaOil every time someone touches, styles or brushes their hair. Whereas other oils would simply rinse away, washing most of their benefits down the drain, MarulaSpheres continue to provide maximum nutrients and hydration for noticeably healthy, shiny hair.
MarulaOil is not only good for the hair, it helps create a sustainable economy for more than 7,000 women and their families in Africa. It comes from the fruit of the marula tree, a vital resource for the people of southern and eastern Africa. Brimming with powerful antioxidants, oleic acids and a high concentration of nutrients, marula oil is a prized possession and is fast becoming a sustainable source of income as well. The fruit is harvested by African women’s collectives, who are educated in safe practices, provided traceability training and who are paid fair trade wages.

Matthew, a senior hairstylist at Renegade Studio in Leeds, collaborated with Creative HEAD to run a competition to give two aspiring stylists the opportunity to work alongside his team.

I was so glad I won because the experience was incredible!” The Leeds RAG Fashion show – rebranded in 2015 as LRFS – is one of the university’s biggest events of the year. Featuring cutting-edge fashion, it draws an audience of nearly 1,000 people and last year raised more than £15,000 for charity. This year’s show paid attention to punk, androgyny, flower power and women’s rights.

What March has in store for... PHIL JACKSON BRAVO HAIRDRESSING
This month I feel we need to help our clients out of hibernation! We have a nice early Easter this year, which is always a busy time at Bravo, so I’ll be refreshing the window display and in-salon graphics with lighter and brighter images. I’m also attending Salon Smart this month for a dose of inspiration and finally, I’ll be taking a not-so-restful break with my boys at EuroDisney.
BRIAN GALLAGHER GALLAGHER & HORNER HAIR
It’s a busy time for us. The salon is packed and we’re in the process of recruiting more stylists. I’m also looking at design ideas for a salon refit – it’s top secret at the moment, but I’m excited about a fresh new look. I’m also doing some castings for a big photoshoot coming up, as well as preparing mood boards for L’Oréal Professionnel seminars in Glasgow, London and Leeds.
ELENA LAVAGNI NEVILLE HAIR & BEAUTY
I am now in the process of planning a new salon in Monaco. We also have a secret summer project that I can’t reveal too much about at this stage, aside from that it will be a pop-up salon in a popular beach resort, so watch this space. And in our London flagship salon we’re creating a new TLC treatment – to strengthen and restore hair.
LOUIS BYRNE REVEALS ALL THE BACKSTAGE DETAILS FROM ELLIE GOULDING’S LATEST TOUR

“IT WAS STRANGE not having to prepare for the collections,” said Louis, who was touring Europe with singer Ellie Goulding for her Delirium tour instead of working at the fashion weeks. “But it is an honour to accompany Ellie, we have worked together for a while so we have a great relationship, and the whole experience has been really fun.” The tour takes in 15 countries and 25 cities for 31 performances, so Louis needs a kit-bag packed with versatile, high-performing products. “JOICO is a brand I always have in my kitbag,” said Louis. “The styling products are multi-purpose and high performance – they allow me a sense of selfexpression and creativity. Ellie’s hair is incredibly versatile so we can try out lots of looks and play around with texture. But as well as achieving the looks, we need to know the styles will survive the high-octane dance routines.” But his kit-bag must-have item? “I can’t get enough of JOICO Hair Shake. It creates gorgeous, mussed-up hair.”
INFRINGE THE NEXT TIME you’re stuck in a creative rut and need a little inspiration, head to infringe.com – a platform dedicated to the culture of hair. Site creator and TIGI founder Anthony Mascolo wants to present the ‘anthropology of hair’ as it looks at the use of hair through many mediums. There’s your usual – the hairdressers, barbers and wigmakers; and the not so usual – the writers, the activists and the photographers; a biannual magazine is also planned.
Bad Hair Days grabs money for GOSH BAD HAIR DAY pulled in a host of dodgy ’dos to help raise money for thousands of seriously ill children through Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity. Salons that signed up received a free fundraising kit featuring balloons, a collection box and a sweepstakes game. The event saw nearly 1,500 sign-ups from salons, schools and individuals. And clients can still help out by grabbing a Cloud Nine limited edition White Touch straightener. Priced at £99, £10 (+VAT) of each sale goes to the charity.

This is luxury that delivers. With high performance formulas and skincare-inspired ingredients, it’s a line-up that promises 50 per cent more protective antioxidants than argan oil. It also helps to seal split ends and offer the kind of repair and hydration that dull, damaged, thick, coarse and unruly hair will adore. The Rare Oil Treatment (including a light version) works on both hair and skin, and can be used before shampoo to enrich frazzled locks. A true game-changer.

WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE A HAIRDRESSER? I wanted to follow in my cooler big sister’s footsteps and I think growing up and watching her do hair encouraged me to do the same. I used to watch my family have their hair done by her and I was mesmerised. I have always been creative, and hairdressing offers so much variety – it’s not your standard 9 to 5 job. There are so many different opportunities available such as working backstage at London Fashion Week, opening up your own salon or even freelancing. It’s a great way to get your name out there, you can travel the world and it is one of the happiest jobs there is!
AGE: 24 SALON: RAINBOW ROOM INTERNATIONAL, BEARSDEN WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR HIGHLIGHTS SO FAR? Being in the Schwarzkopf Professional Young Artistic Team was an amazing opportunity for me, and something I’m extremely proud to be a part of. Working backstage at T in the Park, too, because it’s such an exciting experience and a great weekend with the Rainbow Room International team! We get to style the hair of a lot of celebrities, their bands and managers, we work the whole weekend which can be tiring but we get such a buzz from it, the days go so fast.
020_Rising Star.indd 1
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS? I would like to be producing my own collections and hopefully have some awards under my belt. It’s all about getting your name out into the industry. I have thought about opening my own RRI salon, too – you can never set your sights too high! You have to believe you can go out there and prove yourself.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM HAIRDRESSING GIG? It would definitely be New York Fashion Week. Lots of fast-paced styling and the chance to travel doing a job that you love, would be a dream come true for me. Getting to fly all over the world working on shoots, and meeting new people from different cultures and backgrounds – this is what inspires me.
Inside story BEYOND THE FRINGE ELTHAM THIS FRIENDLY SALON in south-east London has opted for a more relaxed and natural look after a makeover, enhanced by the combination of a slate floor, styling units in a wood finish and a smattering of plant life. For the right ambience, LED lighting has been used in key areas to get the correct tone. Choosing central island styling units meant walls can be used for low-level storage, thereby creating a more open feel, and the salon boasts custombuilt REM Oasis units to match. These look brilliant alongside the Pietranera styling chairs, with all furniture supplied by LSE. “We’re particularly pleased with the open-plan reception area, as this virtually creates a small salon within our large space,” says owner Bill McTurk. “This allows room for consultations, along with being a great point of sale zone.”

MARK CREED IDLEWILD
Each of our salons has different parking environments: Oxford is expensive and busy, so Park & Ride is best; Abingdon has widely available and inexpensive parking, although clients don’t like the inconvenience of buying a ticket; and Witney is free and has plenty of spaces. The town has grown because of this, implemented by the local authority. Both charges and inconvenience (difficulty in finding space, having the right change) negatively impact our business. Clients are more likely to be under pressure to return to their car by a certain time, creating more stress and lessening the chance of them extending their stay with a ‘spur of the moment’ treatment. All of my teams are fully briefed on local parking information to ensure that we can share knowledge with clients and offer a service to renew parking tickets for them.
THE BUSINESS EDIT
WOULD FREE PARKING BOOST HIGH STREET TAKINGS? SALONS IN SMALL TOWNS and villages could receive a boost in trade of between 30 per cent and 60 per cent if councils abolished high street car parking charges, according to car leasing company Flexed. It carried out a survey of parking and shopping habits that revealed towns and villages with free parking saw up to 60 per cent more cars parking in local facilities. The study claimed local shopkeepers saw takings up an average of 30 per cent, while 87 per cent of shoppers interviewed said they would be more likely to shop locally if parking was free. Ian Marshall, owner of Spargo Hairdressing in Essex, argues that fees have certainly had an impact on his community. “Parking charges have always been a gripe, in Brentwood they’re quite high,” he explains. “Six years ago the car parks were pay on exit so clients would come in, get their hair done, then take a walk up the high street and shop at their own pace. The car parks changed to pay and display, so now they buy enough time for their appointment and no more. “Our large client base now doesn’t use the high street. Sometimes we even have to send staff out to the car parks to put tickets on clients’ cars if they have misjudged their time. Clients do take into account the extra money it costs to get their hair cut, and a parking charge, which can be an additional £3 to £5, will make them think about their total outlay.
It’s not just about individual trades – it’s about saving the heart of a town.” However, Gary Taylor, owner of Edward & Co in West Yorkshire, believes that the fees charged in his small town make the salon more attractive than those in larger nearby cities. “The car parks in Brighouse are significantly cheaper than the multi-storey or on-street parking in city centres. Clients who live near us, but work or go out in Leeds or Manchester would prefer to come to our salon. It’s important that you’re providing top quality services to compete with the city salons to ensure logistics such as parking don’t become a factor when clients are choosing a salon.” Due to recent flooding in the area, the council dropped parking charges in the town centre. “This should boost our trade, however, we found that it meant the car parks and on-street spaces were full,” he argues. “People who work and live in the town were using these spaces rather than their usual bus journeys or walking. This meant clients were reluctant to come into the town centre as they were unable to find a space. Gary continues: “Our overheads are cheaper than those of a salon in a larger city, which means our services are also cheaper. This attracts the people of Brighouse; they’re willing to pay a small parking fee to see us here, rather than the added cost of an appointment in the city.”

Phil Jackson, Bravo @bravohair In the ’70s I had my first spread in Vogue when I was 19 years old. In the ’80s I was successfully dividing my time between editorial work and the salon, when that wasn’t the norm. The ’90s was opening up my own salon and in the 2000s I was most proud of getting my OBE! What advice would you give a teenage Nicky Clarke?
Jason Collier @jasoncollierjc I wouldn’t do anything differently; I had a really good work ethic, I just wanted my foot in the door... but I’d give my 30-year-old self some salon owner advice! You are an inspiration to many, but who in our industry inspires you?
Neil Barton, Neil Barton Hairdressing @neilbartonhair Having been a session hairdresser, it’s those kind of people – the Sam McKnights, Guidos, Eugene Souleimans of this world, their longevity. But there are so many geniuses. How reliant is your business on you as an individual?
A super-keen Phil Jackson, Bravo @bravohair I’d like to think that it isn’t – if you’re a figurehead of a salon, it’s very easy to hone in on that person, but we have a very busy team who are getting on with their own thing while keeping the company’s house style.
A cheeky James Kirton @jameskirton1971 The funny thing is, if you look at pictures of me from the past 30 years, it’s gone from halfway down my back to pretty short. But it’s amazing that no matter what, people still think it’s the same! Hey, if Anna Wintour can get away with a signature look, then why not?! Up next: Andrew Barton!

WITH THE GROWING use of disposable towels, salons are faced with the battle of actually disposing of them. Q Hair & Beauty goes through around 500 towels a week, and so recycles in the greenest way possible! “We use them as a membrane for flowerbeds, stacked in piles of 20, they naturally biodegrade and feed directly back into the earth,” says director Kain Lawrence. “It saves us almost £800 a year.”

BARBARA DALEY HAIR & BEAUTY, LIVERPOOL You are only as good as your last haircut. People quickly forget all the good experiences they have had with you if they have a bad one, so consistency is key. Offers don’t work. The salon I worked at before was always having special offers, colour sales and so on. I vowed not to go down this route as it doesn’t encourage loyalty or for people to book ahead; instead they hold out for the best deal and it cheapens what we do. Never undersell yourself, if you don’t believe you’re worth the price you’re charging why should the person in the chair? Share your knowledge. The more you share, the more you get back. If I had kept everything to myself I wouldn’t have a business, and the fact that I have and continue to share everything instils this philosophy in the rest of the staff and makes us a stronger team.
SALONS TOLD TO ‘GET READY’ FOR LIVING WAGE THE GOVERNMENT’S new compulsory £7.20-an-hour National Living Wage for employees aged 25 or over will come into force from 1 April, the NHF is reminding salons. The new wage will mean all older staff currently on the National Minimum Wage of £6.70 an hour will need to receive a 50p-an-hour pay rise. The government has indicated it expects this to rise to £9 an hour by 2020 but, for now, the NHF is advising salons, if they haven’t already, to use March to double check that their payroll systems and payment processes will be able to cope with this change. The government has advised employers they need to do four things: Know the rate Check which staff will be eligible Update payroll before 1 April Tell staff about any changes to their pay. For more information, head to livingwage.gov.uk
TOUGH NEW SAFETY FINES UNVEILED SALONS ARE BEING warned that a tough new regime of fines for health and safety offences has come into force. Businesses found guilty of health and safety offences will now have to pay fines based on the size of their turnover, according to the guidelines for courts drawn up by the Sentencing Council. Sentences will vary depending on culpability and the harm risked. Businesses will also now be split into four bands, starting from “micro” (turnover up to £2m) up to large (more than £50m). The NHF is as a result urging hairdressing salons and barbershops to review their health and safety practices.
SALONS URGED TO GET BEHIND NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK SALONS ARE BEING urged to get behind this month’s National Apprenticeship Week (14 to 18 March). NHF member Scott Bailye (pictured), who runs Leicester salon Scott Bailye Hairdressing, has become an apprentice “ambassador” for the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), which organises the week as well as the National Apprentice Show, which is taking place on 14 to 15 March at the Arena:MK in Milton Keynes. Scott is among a number of employers featured in a new video created by the service, and will be running interactive workshops for children thinking about apprenticeships during the show. He said: “I would like to see more salons getting actively involved in helping to promote apprenticeships. The NAS is looking for more ambassadors, so why not get in touch with it? “I’ve been running my salon for 20 years and this is something I believe in passionately. “I started out as an apprentice myself and the salon has always had apprentices. Apprentices are the future of our industry and they bring real benefits to salons; I strongly feel it is good for staff and for clients to be able to interact with apprentices.” The NAS has set up an online “pledge-o-meter” (naw. pledgeometer.net) where employers can share apprenticeship and traineeship pledges in the run-up to the week. There is also an online map (eventsmap.nas.apprenticeships. org.uk/) for businesses that want to get involved in their local area. Full details about National Apprenticeship Week will be available at apprenticeships.org.uk
Hairdressers ‘among most trusted’ HAIRDRESSERS ARE one of the most trusted professions in Britain, with more than two-thirds (69 per cent) of people saying they would trust their hairdresser to tell them the truth, a survey has said. This was almost the same level of trust as the public put in the police (68 per cent), the Ipsos Mori Social Research Institute revealed, and much higher than other professions, such as charity chief executives (47 per cent) and even TV newsreaders (65 per cent). In all, hairdressers were fifth, behind doctors, teachers, judges and scientists. Politicians, estate agents, bankers and journalists were bottom of the list.

THE LION & THE FOX IT’S A CREATIVE COLLABORATION that’s caused quite the roar around London’s Clerkenwell district since its launch a year ago. The Lion & The Fox salon and gallery is the brainchild of hair stylist Tim Pateman and photographer Leo Cackett. Having been friends and colleagues for the past 15 years, it wasn’t until they started sharing a studio in 2011 that the notion of a salon gallery began to percolate… “The idea of exhibiting artwork in a salon space came very naturally,” says Leo. “Tim’s clients often enquired about the artwork in our studio, and the wall space in the reception area seemed perfect.” The salon features architectural work by Treeslounge and original artwork by James Joyce and Will Broome. There’s wine from Dynamic Vines, and Square Mile Coffee from Prufrock on Leather Lane. Fancy a beer? Then choose between Meteor from the Alsace and Shepherd Neame from Leo’s hometown of Faversham. The spacious reception area houses a rotating collection of photography by Leo, while the separate gallery space downstairs showcases exhibitions by select artists. “We worked closely with our good friend and client, Rich Ryan. We wanted to it to be comfortable, to age well and avoid being stuffy,” says Leo. “The gallery doubles up as a waiting area for the clients – it’s a generous space for them to relax before and after their appointment.”

As the tour went up to Edinburgh and Manchester, it was Neil Barton on the menu, the first ever UK winner of the Global Color Zoom trophy in 2010. He’s the perfect man on the inside, having spent time on the Goldwell Global Color Zoom Creative Team and the Global Artistic Team. Oh, and current Global Color Zoom winner, Natalie Cara Jones, popped up too!

#CelebPower SIX BIG NAMES. Six different perspectives on the influence of celebrity. A sell-out crowd gathered to hear a diverse line-up – spanning fashion, beauty, session, salon, celebrity and business worlds – discuss all things celebrity, including bloggers, the Kardashians, the minefield of social media, the effectiveness of endorsements, and career advancement versus exposure all explored. JOICO colour ambassador, Denis de Souza, who had flown in from Hollywood ahead of the event, joined Most Wanted Hair Icon, Percy & Reed co-founder and celebrity stylist, Adam Reed and Little Mix’s go-to hairdresser, Aaron Carlo. Denis said: “I do the celebrity’s hair, then I leave. It’s a job. I see stylists who are best friends with celebrities for a minute, then they move on to a hotter, fresher new stylist and they’re left crushed.” Alongside them were fashion stylist Nathalie Riddle; Sarah Curran MBE, founder of fashion shopping hubs MyWardrobe.com and Very Exclusive; and BeautyMART’s co-founder, Millie Kendall MBE, who saw sales of a lip balm skyrocket after a Miley Cyrus endorsement. Everyone left clutching a bag stocked with JOICO goodies to try, including new Lumishine colour – perfect for any celebinspired sun-kissed looks!

THE PHOENIX THEATRE in London’s West End was filled with staff from Rush’s 76 salons, eager to spend a glittering evening celebrating their success. International creative director Andy Heasman and international colour director Chris Williams took to the stage to welcome the Rush family, before getting the party mood in top gear with some fun and games – involving giant inflatable champagne bottles! Then it was down to business with the brightest of Rush’s stars collecting their welldeserved Rush ‘Oscars’ after a year full of hard work – having opened 14 new salons in 2015, the group announced plans for 20 more. The new Rush Colour Team was revealed, followed by a presentation inspired by the late, great David Bowie. Once done, the crowd skipped across the road to party into the small hours…

ROUND THE CLOCK CARE
CLIENTS CAN NOW WAKE UP TO FULLERLOOKING HAIR WITH NIOXIN’S FIRST OVERNIGHT TREATMENT, NIGHT DENSITY RESCUE THE BODY WORKS non-stop, and when we sleep its natural repair function is stronger as the body is resting and cells regenerate, providing a great opportunity for the body to be aided in repairing damage that has occurred during the day. One such aid is the Night Density Rescue leave-on treatment. NIOXIN’s first night time treatment is clinically proven to promote hair density by reducing hair fall through a powerful blend of antioxidants known to neutralise free radicals on the scalp surface. It’s these free radicals that lead to hair loss as they can trigger skin and scalp oxidation. On your skin, this oxidation is shown by wrinkles and dark spots, but on the scalp it’s hair loss. Antioxidants help fight oxidation and, while there are antioxidants in the body that fight free radicals, there’s not always enough. Products that contain additional ones can aid the body in neutralising free radicals and prevent more damage. This is why the revolutionary NIOXYDINE24 technology is key to NIOXIN Night Density Rescue’s success as it contains powerful antioxidants that target and neutralise oxidative damage at the scalp surface. The powerful mix of antioxidants, including vitamin E, acetate, ginger root extract, caffeine and biotin, are known to neutralise free radicals on the scalp surface to promote hair density.
NIOXIN’S NIGHT DENSITY RESCUE IS PROVEN TO PROMOTE HAIR DENSITY† BY REDUCING HAIR FALL*** NIOXIN Night Density Rescue leaves no residue on the pillow and is suitable for all hair types. During the day, the body is exposed to more toxins alongside a higher production of sebum versus at night. Also, hair is more susceptible to UV and styling damage. NIOXIN protects hair during the day and creates an optimal scalp environment while defending against any further damage. At night, when the body’s natural repair is at its strongest, the Night Density Rescue Treatment steps in to complete the regimen.

Hair by Karine Jackson using Organic Colour Systems, assisted by Nicola Hand of OCS Australia. Styling by Leticia Dare. Make-up by Margaret Aston. Photography by Andrew O’Toole
This was created using clear plastic sheets. On the roots I applied dark brown for maximum shine. For the middle band, I took a two inchesdeep section around the head in a horseshoe section and placed the plastic sheets around. From here I took small sections, applying a generous amount of colour on each section. I used Organic Colour Systems High Lift Blonde Naturlite. I then continued with the dark brown OCS No Limits on the ends. Once the blonde was lifted up to a pale white blonde, I toned the white blonde with silver.
I used Thermal 2 Twenty from OCS and dried the hair as smoothly as possible before using a ghd styler to get that perfectly ﬂat ﬁnish.
I started by deciding on the looks I wanted to create and then went into casting for the appropriate model. I knew exactly what I wanted the image to look like and luckily we found the right model.
This was created with clippers. It’s all about positioning – I had to make sure the model was standing straight and didn’t move! I had to get her to hold the back of the chair with her arms spaced apart in line with her body to stop any swaying. Your own posture is just as important, too!
I’ve been working with Andrew O’Toole for 10 years and I think he’s amazing, so there was never any doubt in my mind I wanted to work with him on this shoot. CREATIVE HEAD

GREAT-LOOKING BARBERSHOP? CHECK. AMAZING SERVICE? CHECK. MOTIVATED STAFF? WELL, THERE’S A REASON RUFFIANS IS A MOST WANTED WINNER
EVER SINCE RUFFIANS burst onto the scene a few years ago, it has been a shining example of the resurgence in men’s grooming. The barbershop is a case study of excellent customer service and canny branding – that’s why its 2015 Most Wanted Best Salon Team award sits alongside the 2013 Best New Salon and 2014 Best Customer Experience trophies. It is laser-focused on delivering more to a target audience searching for something more than a £10 clipper session at the local barber, with dog-eared copies of The Sun the only reading material on offer… Based in London’s Covent Garden (there’s also a site in Edinburgh and a new shop in Marylebone) Ruffians has a diverse team – some have decades of hairdressing experience under their belt and others have been trained on-site after finishing their NVQ2 in barbering. “We believe it’s important to take advantage of the qualities of both parties, so we pair every younger barber with a more experienced one,” explains co-founder Andrew Cannon, and so the Ruffians mentoring scheme was born! During fortnightly Art Team meetings, senior barbers have the opportunity to lead their younger counterparts and oversee their creative ideas, offering a little logic and practicality where needed. In turn, younger barbers
TALENT are able to inspire the senior stylists with their more youthful insight into trends, popular culture and new ideas. “By bringing the teams together, a previously imbalanced relationship on the shop floor becomes teamwork personified,” says Andrew. “The barbers get to know each other’s personalities and thought processes through the ideas they share. In turn, everyone can understand the value they bring to Ruffians.” The meetings bring everyone together in a more relaxed environment, outside of opening hours over a few drinks – and they can speak freely without clients present, too. This all occurs at another teambuilding essential – the Ruffians bar! Subsidised on-site, the team is encouraged to hang out after work, and it offers a great alternative to pricey central London bars. “We know well that spending upwards of 40 hours a week working together can sometimes take its toll, so by facilitating a social hangout, the staff can reacquaint themselves with each other’s personalities, promoting a great environment and a positive team spirit,” says Andrew, who has even commissioned a Ruffians beer. The results are clear – the team has collaborated to create shoots for consumer and industry press, as well as creating imagery for the brand. “By having magazines like
GQ, Esquire and Men’s Health publish Ruffians’ work, we’ve become known outside of the industry as a team of creative barbers who are able to perform top quality haircuts to a discerning set of individuals,” explains Andrew. ASOS, Duchamp London, Wild Game Company… the brand’s reputation has led to incredible partnerships on events in stores, with the team and front of house staff ensuring plenty of Ruffians personality. “Our events are as much for the enjoyment of the team as they are for the customers,” admits Andrew. The staff work together to tap into what is going to appeal to clients – the music, the entertainment, the food – everyone helps, from lugging furniture around and stocking the sinks with drinks to whipping around with the vacuum. It’s true teamwork – and it’s why Ruffians keeps taking home those Most Wanted trophies!
“I HAVEN’T USED MY 27 YEARS WISELY. BUT ONE DAY THAT CHANGED!”
TOMMY CUNLIFFE, ONE-TIME ASSISTANT BARBER AT RUFFIANS AND THE IT LIST RISING STAR 2015, ON WHY HE PICKED UP THE SCISSORS
UNLIKE MANY YOUNG hairdressers, Tommy Cunliffe didn’t head to college or seek out an apprenticeship in his teens. He attended university in Nottingham, then stayed in the city to work in music events, booking gigs for the likes of Olly Murs and Zane Lowe. It was exciting, but he lacked direction, motivation and was unhappy. One thing he did enjoy was his monthly trip to the hairdresser… “It was a time for me to enjoy myself, to kind of cleanse my soul and relax without the pressures of the outside world,” recalls Tommy. “That feeling you get when your hair looks on point, that confidence as you leave it’s difficult to describe – you feel new and refreshed. It’s how I had my ‘eureka!’ moment.” He quit his job and booked onto a hairdressing course, packed his stuff and moved to London to start again. But this isn’t a fairy tale of easy opportunities – Tommy has had to work. He didn’t just fall into a job at Ruffians – armed with his NVQ2 from the London School of Barbering, he
went for an interview, where boss Andrew Cannon recalls immediately noting “the passion in his eyes, the spring in his step”. But Ruffians wasn’t ready to take on its first trainee at its Covent Garden branch, and Andrew advised him to go elsewhere to get some experience. Tommy made it clear Ruffians was for him, and he’d do whatever necessary to become one of the gang. “We offered him some work experience and before we knew it he was sweeping the floor, entertaining our customers, stocking our shelves,” recalls Andrew, “and whenever he had a spare second, he was watching and learning from the team.” Tommy had a mission: to be the best assistant, and his drive and determination were evident. Customer satisfaction is paramount, even if it means giving up his lunch hour to trek across London to return lost keys to a client or running out for a pint of milk. But what he prides himself on most is making sure barbers don’t have to ask for anything because
PROBLem HANDS FAST
he’s already got it in place. Towels are stacked, combs are ready in Barbercide, tools are safely in their places... He even sacrificed his day off to organise the inventory and stock room. “He puts himself forward for all our events, but what struck me was that he volunteered for something that ultimately didn’t help improve his hairdressing skills or anything that he could carry forward in his career – it was a truly selfless act,” says Andrew. “It might not sound like a difficult task, but it was a mess, and he fully embraced the task at hand. He would have been perfectly entitled to do it during work hours, but he chose to do it on his own time so that he didn’t miss time on the shop floor or any training and observing time. The trust that was gained, by Tommy from me, was huge. If he’s willing to take so much care over shelves of shampoo, imagine the care he’s taking in his relationships with clients.” “Six months since his It List win, Tommy is now a graduate barber (he only needs to complete his cutthroat shave training to be fully fledged) and working on the Ruffians Art Team, with ambitions to one day manage his own shop (while still running a column, too!). But that’s not all: “I know it’s a bit cheesy, but my dream is to be the guy who cuts James Bond’s hair,” he grins. “He’s iconic, and I’d love to influence his style.” We wouldn’t put it past you Tommy!

By Gary Hooker and Michael Young “When it comes to creativity, it’s about walking around with your eyes open and realising that sometimes the least obvious things can inspire you. A piece of fabric, a flower or even an electricity pylon… everything has shape, form and texture. What’s important is to understand that it’s not about recreating that kind of inspiration in hair, it’s about taking direction from it and allowing it to influence your work in a whole new way. When you start to think like this, it unlocks creativity that you didn’t know was there. As hairdressers we have creativity in our blood, but it can sometimes get lost, and this is a great way of reawakening the spark and thinking differently. It’s a game-changer.”

ALL THINGS ECO
GOING GREEN IS NOW MAINSTREAM, AND RIGHTLY SO – A MORE ECO-FRIENDLY BUSINESSES IS NOT ONLY KINDER TO THE EARTH, BUT CAN MEAN BIGGER PROFITS And there’s no need for large investments in order to start reaping the rewards of a greener salon. Research by the University of Southampton estimates that a one per cent change in salon behaviour can see a 10 per cent saving in costs – not to mention a reduction in carbon emissions and water pollution. Making simple adjustments such as swapping to eco-friendly shower heads and recyclable towels not only saves resources and time, it also enhances the client experience.
Vogetti disposable towels are ideal for saving on water and energy, and they are full biodegradable, too.
SALON PRICE: £75 PER BOX OF 500
Colour range Essensity from Schwarzkopf Professional is free from ammonia and silicone and provides brilliant coverage.
Natural product and treatment options are more popular than ever – The Soil Association’s Organic Market Report discovered that sales of certified organic health and beauty products in the UK increased by 20 per cent in 2014 as clients become more aware of what they’re using on their hair and skin. Gentler botanic ingredients can provide stunning results while minimising pollution and irritation. Clients are keen to take natural products home with them, so well-stocked green shelves can offer a healthy retail boost...
Pureology shampoos are packed with antioxidants and plant extracts to perk up colour and are concentrated, so you get more washes per bottle.
RRP FROM £24
Swedish favourite Maria Nila has added three new products to the all-vegan Style and Care range, ideal for over-processed hair that craves a boost of hydration and shine.
Strengthening Serum from Wella Professionals Elements uses a tree extract to form a protective shield around the hair that doesn’t compromise movement.
One minute is all it takes for the all-organic Goldwell Dualsenses Green Pure Repair 60 sec Treatment to get to work, revitalising split-ends and dry strands.
Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Bonus Bag duos are available in three formulas and for every one sold Reforest’Action will plant a tree in Peru or Haiti.

A T T H E B A C K WA S H Making eco-conscious changes in your salon doesn’t require lots of effort. Ecoheads can cut your water usage while doubling the pressure – all you need to do is swap from your traditional shower head and start saving. Add to the experience with HeadBed from Salon Eco, a headrest cushion that minimises water leakage and speeds up the colour removal process. Clients will appreciate the comfort safe in the knowledge that small details reduce wastage.

Hair by Antoinette Beenders for Aveda
AVEDA IS DEDICATED to sustainability and is a trailblazer when it comes to being kind to the planet – it’s the first beauty company to use 100 per cent wind power in its manufacturing process, and has pioneered Earth Month (this April, mark it in your diary!) to raise funds for sustainable projects all over the world. And the brand is always finding new ways to get greener, however big or small – the innovative Shampure Dry Shampoo is aerosol-free and delivers an invisible mist of natural powders and a calming aroma distilled from 25 flowers and plants. “I’d like to think we’ve proven all the doubters wrong,” says international creative director Antoinette Beenders about those who still question the performance of greener products. “I’m personally involved in making sure they work. Our hairspray, Control Force, took five years to perfect. I’m so demanding,” she laughs. “I’m sure the lab dreads me coming in!”

(GREEN) FLOWERS OF SCOTLAND THESE SCOTTISH SALONS HAVE ECO-FRIENDLY BUSINESS MODELS SUSSED – WE FIND OUT WHY THEY BELIEVE GREEN IS GREAT
ÉLAN HAIR DESIGN IF YOU’VE WON 21 awards for your eco-friendly hair salon, you must be doing something right. Based in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Élan Hair Design’s green journey to success began with a £250,000 refurbishment of its premises four years ago, aimed at reducing its carbon footprint. The salon has developed innovative methods to do just that, including designing a system to send hair clippings and other biodegradable waste to be spread as compost on local farmers’ fields. Unique measures such as these have allowed the salon to divert an incredible 95 per cent of its waste from landfill. The salon has also introduced a carbon management plan, which has led to the salon cutting its emissions by a whopping 94 per cent. “Many local business owners have come into the salon to find out how they could adapt their firms to become more eco-friendly,” says Lorna Milton, director of the salon.
ANDERSON’S HAIR GLASGOW-BASED Anderson’s Hair, the Most Wanted Best New Salon of 2015, has made concerted efforts to keep the use of energy and water low – recycling; motion-activated LED lights; upcycled furniture; and colour and products from green favourite, Davines. There’s a living wall at the backwash and the hairdressing sections have been hand made from reclaimed wooden floorboards, while the retail area features upcycled wooden cable drums. The reception desk and the coffee bar waiting area are both made from recycled wooden pallets. “It was very important that we didn’t go and use new materials when we could reuse existing ones,” says owner Keith Anderson. The salon has partnered with PlanBee to help boost numbers of honeybees and safeguard their natural environment, with fundraising measures reaping donations towards a real beehive.
