t’s been an incredible time in the industry over the past few months, with awards season taking centre stage. Fitting, considering this is our ‘Glamour’ issue, and we certainly saw a lot of glamour at these events – fashionistas galore. The INDUSTRY NZ Hairdressing Awards were followed by the newly-launched Fashion Hair Awards, and just as we went to print, the winners were announced at the Hair Expo Hairdressing Awards in Melbourne. We are excited to celebrate the stunning work of the winners this edition, along with the collections of all the deserving New Zealand finalists. I truly believe that our hair stylists are up there with the best in the world and the work showcased by these creative talents proves it. The Collective weekend, a fusion of hair, fashion, education and creativity, was held in May, and boasted 25 local and international artists of exceptional reputation and talent. We congratulate L’Oréal Professional for creating such an inspiring, positive event for the New Zealand hairdressing industry. Some interesting hair trends are emerging this season; everything from bowl and pageboy cuts, through to the return of the perm. Each making a glamour statement in their own unique way. Check out our trend features for more inspiration and what the experts have to say. Speaking of inspiration, we also talk to Aussie hair icon Joey Scandizzo, take a peek at some beautiful local and international spas and salons, and cover off our favourite new product picks for the season. I also loved reading about the covetable travel destinations and in-flight tips from some of our favourite hair, beauty and style influencers. You can read more in ‘Winter Escape’ on pages 46 and 116. For beauty buffs, we’ve got this season covered; from glitter face masks through to winter tips from our favourite wellness experts. Dr Catherine Stone reports back from the AMAC Conference in Sydney on the latest appearance medicine trends; we take a look at the benefits of vitamin A and marine-based ingredients in skincare; profile the passionate team behind the Katherine Daniels brand, and share wellness guru Lyndall Mitchell’s journey to a blissful Thai retreat. Finally, we pay tribute this issue to the legendary New Zealand hairdressing icon Derek Elvy, who sadly passed away in April. Buoy Salon & Spa Director, Michael Beel, and Managing Director, Phillippa Middleton, share their love of Derek in a very special feature on page 100.

clients are always shocked at the price point. The expectation I think is that if it’s organic, it’s expensive. What is your favourite Angel En Provence product and why? The new Iris range is beautiful; they have nailed it as far as getting a product that is great for compromised hair without the heaviness and protein overload. My absolute favourite though is the Rose Shampoo and Rose Cream. The moisture delivery is incredible. It’s amazing for curly hair and controlling frizz. How does the range differ from other brands you’ve used? The amount of volume we sell is a true testament to the product. We have also introduced clients to other brands for a change, but once an Angel user, always an Angel user!
A Touch Of France Zaibatsu Hair Art owner and award-winning Dunedin hairdresser, Jaimee Smith, shares her love for the Angel En Provence range of haircare and styling products @PHBNZ
When did you discover Angel En Provence Haircare and what made you decide you wanted the range in your salon? We took on the range a number of years ago now. At the time, we were just looking for a beautiful, natural range, so we trialled it and absolutely loved it. The price point was affordable and to be honest, I’ve never known a range that clients have just raved about and continued using for years. What do you and your clients love most about the product offering? Most definitely the fact that it is free from so many nasty chemicals and
How does the range fit with your salon ethos? Our salon is a beautiful space with complete natural light and plant walls, so the Angel range is like part of our furniture! Which Angel En Provence product do you think every hairdresser should try? Hands down the Lavender Violet toning range, which is incredible for blondes. It has actually cut down time on toning our blondes, as we really get results. How toned you want the hair depends on how long you leave it on, and the Lavender Violet Tone Correcting Shampoo feels so nice. I’ve found a lot of toning shampoos are extremely drying on the hair. 1 Lavender Violet Overtone Mask. 2 Rose Nourishing Treatment Cream. 3 Lavender Violet Tone Correcting Shampoo.

We love Angel En Provence’s Iris range, created using Iris Florentina extract, which is packed with anti-ageing properties and antioxidant benefits. With the addition of Ginko Biloba leaf, this natural selection of ingredients restore, reconstruct and hydrate hair. The range includes Iris Restorative Shampoo, a highly concentrated formula to resurrect brittle hair, adding strength, moisture and preventing damage; Restorative Conditioner for hydration and radiance; and Restorative Leave-In Treatment for intense nourishment and smoothing. phb.net.nz
On Trend La Biosthetique’s autumn/winter collection happens to encapsulate all the trends we’ve focused on in this edition: from the perm, through to the revival of the bowl cut, poker-straight locks, and our favourite, showcased in this image; the demand for glossy, shining, deep brunette waves (preferably in the form of a Meghan Markle-style perfection blow-dry). To achieve the La Biosthetique look, we recommend their Anti-Frizz Serum and Glossing Spray. labiosthetique.co.nz

Return Of The Perm Never say never: the resurgence of this 80s fave comes in a more subdued tone
TIPS FOR NAILING THE MODERN PERM Do get a haircut beforehand Cut your clients’ hair into a longer version of the shape you want. Curls bounce up so you need extra length to accommodate for the extra bounce. Don’t cut hair after a perm Cutting hair after a perm treatment can weaken the curl if you cut hair post-perm.
Do ensure hair is hydrated and in top condition Clients need to have their hair in the healthiest condition possible before a perm treatment. A perm is still a chemical service and will make the hair feel much more dry; The better condition the hair is in before you start, the better the end result will be.
Do use products suited for curly hair In terms of ongoing treatment, permed hair requires products similar to that of curly hair. Ensure your clients purchase shampoos, conditioners, styling creams, moisturising and hydration treatments, masks and humidity protectants to keep those curls in prime condition.

he ‘curly shag’ has been on the up of late, repeatedly featuring as a front-runner when it comes to 2018 hair trends. And it doesn’t look like the cool girl cut is going anywhere soon. Along with the return of this retro ‘do comes the reprise of a hair treatment we never thought would see the light of day again: the perm. The resurgence of this popular 80s and 90s hair trend has once again piqued our interest, after witnessing Emma Stone, Julianne Hough and Jaime King happily bringing the style back, cementing it as the latest celebrity hair trend to try. The voluminous look ran the 80s— the bigger, the better—and it was a win for celebrities like Olivia Newton John, Julia Roberts, and even the queen of pop, Madonna. Thankfully, it’s not really following the “higher the hair, closer to god” mantra anymore. The salon service has been gaining popularity in LA and New York for its ability to give clients a natural wave or bend in the hair. Celeb hair stylists say this is more than just a fly-by-night trend, as perms can now be so versatile. Just adding some slight movement to super-straight hair can make styling easier.

Sharleen Singh shares the story behind the finest blow-drys and updos in London @DUCKANDDRY
ocated on the trendy King’s Road and in the heart of West End, just minutes from Oxford Circus, you’ll find Duck & Dry - known for their energy and buzz, and as a go-to place for great hair and a great time. This young and innovative brand truly has big ambitions, and having recently celebrated reaching 100,000 clients, there’s still exciting things to come. A VISION It all began with Yulia Rorstrom, the vision and energy behind Duck & Dry. Passionate about beauty and entrepreneurship, and with a desire to create an exciting new brand, she left her career in finance and set out to create a modern styling destination. Yulia set herself the goal of professionally styled hair becoming part of an everyday beauty regime: uncompromising on quality, yet affordable in a fun and vibrant environment. In 2014, Yulia opened the doors to Duck & Dry’s flagship store in Chelsea, where you can enjoy a glass of prosecco, browse through a menu of ontrend blow-drys and chic updos or get a trim by a skilfully-trained stylist. Then followed the Oxford Circus and SoHo locations, with the same brand ethos of keeping things beautiful and simple.

“I’m on constant standby, observing how the hair is falling, moving and the shapes it makes”
How do you prepare for a fashion shoot like this one? When I’m planning an editorial, I will be in close contact with the creative director of the shoot; sometimes that is the photographer, sometimes this is the magazine editor. Once I have a sense of the creative direction of the shoot, I’ll start developing a mood board of imagery and influences that will act as a guide for me when I’m creating a hair look. This is a really important part of the process for me as I build a look with silhouette, texture and cultural reference. For this shoot, I drew inspiration from early imagery of photographer Venetia Scott, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman and more recently, designer Margaret Howell campaigns. Talk us through your shoot day I get up bright and early, throw on a pair of jeans, do a quick check of my kit to make sure I have what I need and head out the door. I like to take my time prepping hair well and I’ll often finish a hairstyle literally moments before we start shooting. On a shoot I’m on constant standby, observing how the hair is falling, moving, and the shapes it makes. I like to let hair do its thing most of the time and a good shoot flows effortlessly without too much fiddling or interruption from me; this is one of the reasons why prep is so important. I have a set bag that I keep my essentials in that travels everywhere with me. On a shoot, we all try to have fun and make the best and most inspiring images we can.
Session StylingWorkshop Lauren is giving six lucky junior stylists the chance to take part in a session styling workshop with Cloud Nine at her salon Colleen in Auckland’s K’Road. Spend the day with Lauren and her team as they prepare the looks for their upcoming NZFW shows.
The workshop will take place Sunday 26 August, 10:30am - 4:30pm. Notebooks and refreshments provided. Bring your cutting tools. Level: Junior - less than 4 years’ experience.
Learn how to prep, shape hair and create Please enter by emailing your details to runway looks as Lauren breaks down all her techniques for you in this interactive workshop. email@example.com.
What are your must-have essentials for a shoot like this? Always a Cloud Nine Curling Wand, usually in both medium and large sizes. I don’t go anywhere without a cushioned bristle brush, my Cloud Nine Airshot Dryer, a bone tail comb, a toothbrush (for smoothing wayward fly-aways) and a leaf blower. If I’m shooting outside, a hat of course too. What is your favourite part of a shoot? When every aspect of a shoot comes together - makeup, hair, model, photographer, location, fashion…it’s a magical experience. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 35

Through the experimentation of colour, shape, form, abstraction, texture and asymmetry, the collection pushes the limits and explores the boundaries of what we can do, taking aesthetic influence from the bright hues, cascades of light and fragmented forms of our galaxy and the industrial elements of human exploration. This collection earned a finalist nod for the Artistic Team of the Year at the 2018 Australian Hair Fashion Awards and we love it.

Pioneering haircare range Moroccanoil celebrates 10 years of success
orn within the last decade, Moroccanoil products have rapidly become a worldwide sensation embraced by high-profile celebrities, runway, film and television stylists, top beauty editors, and women around the world. The Moroccanoil story first began when co-founder, Carmen Tal, experienced a colour service that left her hair badly damaged. A friend then brought Carmen to a salon where she underwent an astonishing oil treatment that instantly transformed her hair from damaged to shiny, smooth and manageable. Inspired by the remarkable results, Carmen set out to further refine this unique oil treatment and share its benefits with women around the world. At the time, oil treatments for hair were unconventional, but Carmen was undeterred. She and her husband teamed up with a group of visionaries to create an extraordinary oilinfused hair treatment formula. The result was the original Moroccanoil Treatment, which revolutionized the beauty industry by creating an all-new oil treatment haircare category. The award-winning Moroccanoil Treatment was instantly recognised across the globe as the essential foundation for hair styling.
The success of the award-winning Moroccanoil Treatment led to the development of Moroccanoil’s extended line of innovative, luxury hair products to address the needs of all hair types with easy-to-use, performancedriven formulas. Moroccanoil products have become world-renowned for their lightweight texture, naturallooking results and the unique way they instantly absorb into hair. The exclusive formulas leave hair smooth and shiny, but also improve its condition to help hair look and feel healthier and more beautiful with each use. Moroccanoil products are a backstage fixture at major fashion shows around the globe and are continuously used by top stylists for high-profile magazine covers, fashion editorial spreads, as well as world-renowned award shows, including The Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Grammys, Independent Spirit Awards and MTV Awards. In addition to Moroccanoil’s unwavering commitment to produce products of the highest quality, Moroccanoil is proud to provide safe and rewarding equal-opportunity jobs around the world. As a global company with multiple international offices, Moroccanoil remains wholeheartedly dedicated to investing in the communities it serves.
“The success of the awardwinning Moroccanoil Treatment led to the development of Moroccanoil’s line of luxury hair products”
FASHION WEEK FAVE Moroccanoil has been a staple at Fashion Weeks across the globe since 2008. Moroccanoil participates in Fashion Weeks worldwide, creating beautiful hair for the likes of Marchesa, Zac Posen, Badgley Mischka, Diane Von Furstenberg, Max Mara and Monique Lhuillier, to name just a few.
t Marc Jacobs Fall 2018 Ready-To-Wear show, models sauntered down the runway featuring architectural blunt chops and curvilinear bowl cuts, at the hands of hairstylist Guido Palau, who was inspired by Vidal Sassoon and his 60s-defining crops. “Back then, hair wasn’t supposed to look ‘I did it myself’. It was supposed to look done,” explains Palau. “These geometric shapes are like an accessory in and of themselves.” Daring, short cuts are back for those willing to show off their features, with a return to sturdy pageboy haircuts. Looking ‘gamine’ is now front and centre. The pageboy calls attention to one's eyes and jawline, as well as the curves of the neck. It's a revealing 'do, but in all the right ways. Shaun SureThing, co-owner and lead stylist at Seagull Hair Salon in NYC's West Village, says that 2018 will be the year of cutting it all off. “Bowl haircuts and strong geometry will dominate styles, as we trend out of the retro 90s looks that have been making the hair scene for the last few years." A geometric cut with an unusual shape is super-sexy but it can be high maintenance, since you can't simply toss it into a ponytail on lazy Sundays. These modern, geometric

haircuts wear like wigs, which also contributes to the commitment factor and having to maintain the cut regularly. Andrew Cobeldick, who recently won New Zealand Hairstylist of the Year at The Hair Fashion Awards 2018, did so with his stunning take on the bowl cut…and he’s a big fan of this comeback style. “The bowl cut and pageboy is totally back but with modern twist; it’s all about the colour to compliment the style,” says Andrew. “I adore the buttery tones, deeper, natural root fades, smoky tones and multiple pastels coming through with these looks. They create edge and dimension, which makes the hair move and create depth – this really compliments the face.” Andrew says the ideal face shape for those keen to bowl is the oval. “These looks create width, so anyone with a longer face shape. Ideally, anyone can rock these looks from young adults/teens right up to your bad-arse nana! There’s a lot of up-keep with these styles as they are generally quite heavy and rock fringes, so your client needs to see you each month to control the bangs, and anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks to keep the edge and style at its optimum.” In terms of product, Andrew recommends a beautiful heat protectant as a base and a soft, nourishing mousse to add volume and shape. “To finish, I’ll always use a texture spray to create wind-blown light movement throughout. You should use anywhere between 3 to 5 products to create this cut to perfection!”

Glossiness Equals Glamour Think of French women and you'll immediately picture insouciant, modelesque beauties with perfect, wavy, glossy-looking hair - a sort of impossibleto-achieve second-day-blow-dry look. It may not be new, but it still looks as cool as ever, and appeared in droves on the runways of Isabel Marant, Chloé and Altuzarra. Wanting hair to be as blinding as your highlighter is one of the key trends this year, with Amal Clooney, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle giving us serious glossy, blow-wave envy. In-salon, it’s important to teach clients how to create shine-worthy locks at home, once you’re no longer working your magic on them in the salon.

blow-dries and shine spray. This also provides the opportunity to showcase some of your more luxurious salon products to clients who are already in the zone of wanting A-list hair. "Remind clients that looking after the condition of their hair is the top priority. They need to invest in a good masque and leave on the hair for 15 minutes twice a week to keep the moisture levels up," Aaron says. “Their blow-drying technique really matters. Introduce them to one of your fantastic hair oils and advise them to apply to mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying hair (with a nozzle on) and always point down the hair to smooth the cuticle, which helps reflect light. On finishing, they need to gently mist a lightweight shine spray over the hair, making sure they hold it away from hair while applying; hair doesn’t want to be overloaded and have shine turn into grease.” 1 MarulaOil Rare Oil Treatment. 2 La Biosthetique Glossing Spray. 3 evo Love Perpetua Shine Drops. 4 Sebastian Professional Trilliance Conditioner. 5 Moroccanoil Weightless Mask. 6 Joico K-Pak Luster Lock. 7 KEVIN.

Creativity and innovation came together for one inspirational weekend in Auckland
n interactive twoday event packed with education and global hair fashion took place at Auckland’s The Cloud over the weekend of the 6th/7th May. Attendees were treated to education, creative workshops and inspirational showcases from some of the biggest names in hairdressing (25 in all), including the amazing Tabatha Coffey who used her unique style to teach the importance of business basics and the salon emotion journey. Redken Global Artist Justin Isaac (nicknamed the Colour Ninja) is one of the top colourists in the world and the audience lapped up his sessions. Colour technician and celebrity stylist Matthew Collins from Canada also won over the audience, as did some of our favourite Aussie names, including Uros Mikic, Damien Rinaldo, Kobi Bokshish, Stevie English, and the boys from Papas & Pace. Top New Zealand hair stylists also took part, including Richard Kavanagh, Rebecca Brent, Mana Dave and Adrian Barclay, imparting their skills and creative knowledge to the receptive crowd. “As the global leaders in hair styling and creative trends, L’Oréal has a responsibility to inspire, innovate and lead our salons, stylists and business owners to continually grow and expand their professional skill-sets,” said Mike Bruce, General Manager of L’Oréal Professional New Zealand.

A glittering fusion of fashion, international hair artists and outstanding New
A striking pageboy cut and colour saw Wellington hairdresser Andrew Cobeldick judged the big winner at the inaugural Fashion Hair Awards, held in Auckland on Sunday 6th May. The awards wound up a two-day event known as The Collective, which drew hairdressers from across the country to see 25 international and local hairdressing experts and superstars of the industry. Three international judges, including reality TV star and hair business educator, Tabitha Coffey, chose the Rodney Wayne stylist as L’Oréal Professional Stylist of the Year. Joining Coffey on the judging panel were two big names from North America: Canadian Matthew Collins and American Justin Isaac. Portfolio work was judged on cut, colour and commercial appeal. Coffey said she was blown away by the calibre of work the judges had to select from and also the growth generally since her last visit to Auckland 7 years ago. Runway shows from Stolen Girlfriends’ Club, Huffer, Wynn Hamlyn, Knuefermann and Zambesi kept the crowd entertained between announcements. The strong fashion focus emphasised the trendsetting connection between
backstage beauty and runway. As part of his prize, Cobeldick from Rodney Wayne, Manners Street in Wellington, will have the opportunity to work at New York Fashion Week. It was fantastic to see the number of new names emerging from around the country. The Pureology Young Talent Award went to Amy Jacobson from Three Hairdressing, Whangarei; the Redken Menâ€™s Image Award to Nicky Crombie from Vivo Bethlehem in Tauranga; and the KĂŠrastase Editorial Award winner was Alan Wang from Perfekt Hair Studios, Auckland. The Matrix Salon of the Year Award, which considers business performance and marketing strategy, went to Buoy Salon & Spa in Wellington - a well-deserved win and particularly special, following the death in April of salon founder Derek Elvy, an industry legend and seven-times New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year winner.

over, as I didn’t believe it was happening, but I am forever thankful it did.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WINNING LOOK? A lot of research and trial and error. I wanted to create something new and fresh but something everyone would desire. I looked at what was happening on-trend with the androgynous scene and what was super-cool back in the 60s and 70s. Then my vision came to light with a beautiful pageboy cut. I wanted to push the colour with strong buttery tones and touches of deep violet roots, with movement of hair to make it come alive. I was so lucky to have an amazing support team to help bring my vision alive!

Minutes with Joey Scandizzo The multi-award winning hairdresser, salon owner and co-creator of the ELEVEN brand talks success, inspiration and shares some of his favourite things
Hair | PROFILE
How did the ELEVEN brand come to life and what do you credit its success to? The timing of the range was perfect. We saw a gap and jumped on it. ELEVEN Australia is a cool-looking, price-pointed range and we kept it simple, easy for stylists and consumers to understand, fresh, fun and the products deliver exactly what they say they do.
and feel amazing. Being the absolute best versions of themselves is what we should try and acheive: that is a trend that never goes out of fashion. What are the five tools/products you always have in your kit? ELEVEN Miracle Hair Treatment, my scissors, Dyson hairdryer, ELEVEN iron and an old soft brush I have had for nearly 15 years. I can create any style with those five things!
Where does the inspiration come from for new products? I have 7 salons and over 140 staff. I look at the work they’re doing and liking and also what consumers are asking for.

You were in New Zealand this month for an ELEVEN showcase with Crew Distributors. What do you love most about the NZ hairdressing industry? I think NZ has some of the best hairdressers in the world. They have a very cool, understated asethetic and like Australians, put in the effort with education and understanding how technical hairdressing is. They also have the same interest in fashion and design as we do, as well as the work ethic. How did you achieve your definition of success and what is that to you? Working wth people I love and can have fun with, that respect each other and work hard together to achieve the same goal. That’s what I think success is. To wake up every day loving what you do and who you do it with is special and rare. Which cuts are you most excited about for clients this season? Natural texture and movement and celebrating the individual – not just following trends but making people look
Congratulations on winning the AHFA’s Salon Business of the Year Award. What would be your top five tips for creating a successful salon business? • Build a great team culture. You need your staff to love coming to work each day. • We have procedures we ensure our team follow so our standards are always high and consistent. • Reward staff with what motivates them – cash, competition work, photo shoots, etc. • Move with the times so you are always attracting a new and exciting clientele. • Promote your team and salon to consumers - social media, PR, etc. What’s next for your salon and the ELEVEN brand? ELEVEN is in 16 European countries, the USA and Canada. We’ve just done a ‘train the trainer’ in Europe to develop our EU education team and will have the same thing happening in the USA soon. In-salon, I’ll continue to work with my team, mentor them through competition season and we are opening another two salons by the end of this year.

I N S PI R ATI O N â€œTom Ford became a massive inspiration for this shoot. I was familiar with his work, then I saw Nocturnal Animals, which he directed. It wasnâ€™t the narrative that spoke to me - it was the aesthetic sensibility. I loved it and decided to create a collection that honoured his aesthetic, but made it my own. I also saw an amazing glasses campaign he did a long time ago and always gravitated to it. He used ravens in his collection, which contrasted really well with the models in the shoot. In terms of hair, I wanted it to be simple, representing what I believe men should do with their styles these days: strong shapes mixed with soft. Different use of texture was also a fun part for me.â€? Hermiz Daniel

The Green Man
As the growth in male grooming sales continues to outperform the female segment, the male market has become a very competitive landscape. This issue Headway asks: does the male consumer consider the natural landscape when they make their purchase? Is the green man myth or reality? 3
ale grooming sales continue to outperform the female market with double digit growth, with the majority of the new sales coming from the Asia Pacific region. The male market has become a very competitive landscape.
Market update Despite haircare being the staple product across the globe, for the male consumer, skincare outsells hair care in most regions. When looking into this further (as we love skin as much as we love hair) the answer seems to be that higher sales for skincare are due largely to higher pricing. Retailers recognise the male market requires a different experience specifically targeted at men – a necessary distribution strategy in men’s grooming. Men remain commercially driven, so sales and free samples generate the higher responses. The male consumer is more technically-savvy and receptive to all marketing methods.
Why go green? In a 2017 study (statistica.com) researchers discovered
PHOTOGRAPHY: Shutterstock.com & supplied
that men request natural and organic hair and styling products more than women. The study also showed that 80% of men’s grooming product sales are generated not online but in-salon. It’s a no brainer that salons, spas and barbershops offer a natural/organic line to sit alongside other male grooming professional products on their shelves. They should take the opportunity to have it available to purchase at the time of visit as the male consumer buys in-store, not online.
Not ready yet? If the timing is not right for your business to expand into the naturality segment with products, then bridge that gap with healthy options (herbal teas or Kombucha as an alternative to a beer or a whiskey) and provide information relating to men’s health. Men’s Health Week in NZ has just been (11th–17th June 2018) but look at perhaps getting involved in Movember 2018. Unfortunately, Kiwi men have a shocking track record when it comes to health care, so making sure you have a salon or barbershop that supports healthy options is a very positive culture to adopt for your business and your staff. For you Review your pricing for your hair care and look at a possible skin care line to add to your collection. Why not have two bites of the cherry? Provide samples, sales and added value offers – the closing of a sale for your male customer is different than for your female.

June is officially men’s health month, but why restrict it to just one month right? We share some feeds of year-round wellness for the guys. Perhaps because we enjoyed the wedding so much or maybe because the English winter is so long they know how to make it work for them, we got a little obsessed with the UK. Enjoy some of our faves from this dirty old town…
Men’s Wellness Men’s Health magazine covers so many relevant topics, this has to be one of the better international feeds at the moment. Health, weight loss, nutrition, sex, depression & so much more. Worth a look, as is #menstarttalking

Hair | PROFILE
Racheal Rua, barber tutor and expert at Premier Institute of Education, shares her passion for the craft
What’s your hairdressing background? I completed my hairdressing training 23 years ago but found myself washing gloves and recycling perming papers. I was given an opportunity to work in a barbershop specialising in men’s cuts and loved it. Coming from a rugby-mad family helped win over those fussy, diehard Cantabrian supporters! They were shocked I knew everything there was to know about rugby. By 2016, I had years of experience but no official barbering qualification, so I completed my QBE (Qualification By Experience) with HITO where I finalised my Level 4 Barbering Certificate. I’ve always loved supporting and helping junior barbers settle into the job, so tutoring was a great next challenge for me. What are the most crucial aspects of barbering that need to be taught? • Initial barbering techniques. • Delivering great customer service. • Hire the attitude, teach the skill! What do you think is the most common misperception about the trade? That it’s easy. The reality is, it’s hard work: mentally, physically and technically challenging. Serving the public is what we do. Standing on your feet all day and repeating the same actions can be physically taxing, and delivering incredibly technical haircuts takes a lot of focus and practice. The upside is that you have great-looking arms in summer, become a great communicator, and multi-tasking becomes second nature.
What advice would you offer someone considering this career? It’s a great career choice as you will learn a trade that is applicable globally and that you can always fall back on. You have flexibility with barbering i.e. contracting, rent-a-chair, store owner, manager, trainer, master barber, social media superstar, competitions (Barbercraft) and so much more. It starts with certification and that’s where Premier can help because we offer a Level 3 barbering certificate and hairdressing courses. What’s the best part of your job? When students have that ‘light bulb’ moment and all their hard work and perseverance finally comes together. When they deliver a complete haircut unassisted, you would think they won the lottery. I have formed life-long friendships with other barbers, clients and business owners over the years but nothing beats that feeling you get when you have the skills to transform someone’s average day into the best day ever! How do you prepare your students for their future career? I need to ensure that the students are industry-ready through the course program at Premier. Students also need to experience first-hand how it rolls in a professional barbershop. I draw on my own experience and prepare students with barbershop visits, guest speakers, clients, product knowledge and application. A haircut isn’t just a haircut anymore. Men now want to look and feel great every day and that’s where we come in.

Cinnamon Scholes from Auckland salon Toni&Guy, is a passionate colourist and award-winning artist. She shares her colour must-haves and what she loves about being part of the Wella family 88 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
What do you love most about working with Wella? Wella has a huge colour portfolio. Whatever service I choose, there is a colour range designed specifically for it. From the Koleston Perfect INNOSENSE range for sensitive scalps, to the latest bright and vibrant Color Fresh CREATE, there is something for everyone. In addition to this, I love the high standard of their technical support; whether it be training or education platform work, they are totally reliable. What are your top five Wella picks? • Top of the list is Wella Blondor. It is multi-purpose and always reaches my expectations. • Koleston Perfect is next - such an extensive permanent colour range that is rich, vibrant and consistent throughout all shades. • Illumina is also a strong favourite. It creates beautiful shine and soft colour results without compromising versatility. • Color Fresh CREATE, the latest addition to the Wella colour family, a spectrum of 11 bold shades that we are currently having a lot of fun with. • Wellaplex complements all the above. By repairing the protein bonds in the hair strands, it enables me to keep the condition and structure of the hair whilst I’m colouring. @CINNAMONSCHOLES
“I love that everyone speaks the same language and shares the same end goal…beautiful colour, with lasting results.” What does being part of the Wella Colour Club mean to you? The Wella Colour Club is a great platform to learn in-depth about the product ranges, learn from other colourists who are equally as passionate about their craft, and share experiences as a ‘community’ without competition. Most importantly, it gives me the expert knowledge that I can share with my team and clients. What have been some of your biggest challenges as a colourist to date? I think the biggest challenge for me when I first started my journey was trying to find others in the industry who felt the same passion towards colour as me. Luckily, I joined a company who celebrates both crafts equally. What does being part of the Wella family mean to you? I love that everyone speaks the same language and shares the same end goal… beautiful colour, with lasting results. What is your team ethos when you’re in the salon? To celebrate each other’s successes and compliment ‘work well done’. We are a team who work collaboratively and who each hold responsibility for our clients experiences, as well as our own. What motivates you personally and professionally each day? Every day is a day to make someone smile and feel beautiful. How blessed am I for this to be my job? How do you feel Wella supports you in your creative colour journey? Wella are constantly innovating, bringing out new colours and technology that enables me to keep learning,
growing and testing my creative boundaries. As a winner of numerous industry awards, what has been your proudest achievement and what does success mean to you? Success to me is waking up every day and doing something that I love. My proudest moment would be having my work featured in the Toni&Guy international lookbook last year. Which colours are you enjoying creating and playing with for the new season? We have become very colourful in our salon as of late trying out all the new Color Fresh CREATE shades. The range is a full spectrum of 11 intermixable shades, so the opportunities here are endless! What’s next for Cinnamon Scholes? I am focusing on pushing myself creatively through competitions and our education platform work (although secretly, my love of detail means I enjoy the learning too). It is never really ‘work’ when you’re having fun. @WELLAPRO_ANZ
K Kindred Human new studio encompasses + Earth This wellbeing, sustainability and luxury in an environment built for ultimate care and relaxation @KINDRED_HUMANEARTH
indred Human + Earth in Auckland is the new platform for Cat Frost, a New Zealand hair industry veteran, utilising 26 years of award-winning experience, which includes 17 years developing Vada Hair, and now Kindred Human + Earth Studio. As a hair stylist, freelance makeup artist and mother of three, Cat is dedicated to environmentally-conscious and natural choices. This salon space was about seeking out ideas and alternatives to reduce the chemical load on both hairstylists and the consumer. With an eye for good design, Kindred was developed exclusively by Cat, who has previously designed four salon fit-outs with the assistance of architects and designers. “I enjoy the creative process in many mediums… whether it be hair, furniture design or interior design,” says Cat. “I have always enjoyed the fusion of creative ideas and have worked with designers, artists and musicians to create collaborative works for hair. Designing the Kindred studio is another way of challenging myself creatively and giving life to ideas” The studio is filled with light, thanks to the high gabled ceiling. This quality takes your breath away when entering the studio and was the key reason Cat chose the space. The bones are like an old ship - a natural serenity and sense of calm radiate out and the design elements added by Cat are there for this reason also. The colour scheme was chosen to represent colours of earth, nature and humans, so there are muted blush tones, soft greens, natural wood, bamboo and plantings. “Kindred needed to have a feeling of a fresh planet, to be a living, breathing space,” says Cat. “We needed trees!” The large tropical trees and rooftop gardens installed are nurtured by the Kindred team and are all named. The ornamental gardens create a restful space and contribute to air quality.
THE BASIN AREA Cat wanted to eliminate as many discomforts as possible for her clients. A newly incorporated ‘No Speak Zone’ and a ‘Zero Black’ policy meant that all furniture chosen for Kindred’s 90 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
Hair | PROMOTION
space would include Comfortel’s tan-coloured vegan leather to match the aesthetic. Many design features were chosen by hand from Cat, including the caramel-flecked stone in the hair wash zone, to match the incredible custom-made tan three-seater from Comfortel. The client has full control of positioning their body with no intrusion from the stylist. “A rig pulley system brings antique lights to the rear of the client for us to view toners close up, but with no impact on client comfort,” comments Cat. “Clients are also offered eye pillows and comfort blankets.”
mindfully chosen sensory experiences is the key philosophy. For the cutting zone, Cat chose Comfortel’s Chloe Tan Styling Chairs because of their stunning aesthetic and deep bucket seats for client rest. The chairs sit beautifully against the blush walls, brass accents and walllength mirrors. “Comfortel made the fit-out process incredibly easy and very personalized,” Cat says. “They are true professionals and helped me tailor the look I was after. It’s a busy time for any salon owner during fit-out and build. Comfortel empathised with this and solved problems on a daily basis with Kindred during our build. Kindred is still taking shape and we have stage two to complete this year. I look forward to working with Comfortel to complete this next exciting step.” The interior, although new, holds many vintage finds. Cat scoured demolition and Trade Me for old doors, windows and brass fittings and installed them into Kindred’s space. It was important that Kindred provided a sense of coming home, as one would feel coming home to family. Feedback is proving to agree Kindred is a hidden Ponsonby gem.
Kindred = Associated by origin, nature and qualities Human + Earth = Holistic approach to human beauty care
THE STYLING AREA The main floor space has multiple resting zones so that Kindred clients always feel relaxed and welcome to move around the studio. Vast window seats look out over Douglas Street, where clients can sip quality organic coffee or tea. Cat feels that every part of the experience should be of sensory benefit to the client. The music is always chosen by Chris King, their lead Art Director of UK origins. The music is restful and nostalgic, taking away the bustle and providing a space to rest. Minimising noise, light, smell and stimuli and giving back

Supreme Service Joanne Neville discusses how to create an exceptional client experience
esearch shows that up to 89% of consumers purchase from a competitor after a bad experience, so it’s important to ensure your client experience is as positive as possible. The good news is that when a client leaves your salon, spa or clinic feeling great, you’re on track to creating a positive and lasting relationship. Creating an exceptional client experience means looking at the whole package. Every detail adds up to determine a client's overall experience. Here are some key details to focus on…
ARRIVAL The perfect client experience starts the moment they open your door: how you greet your clients is crucial. Where possible, ensure you have a receptionist or the client’s stylist or therapist there to warmly greet each client and take them to their chair or treatment room. Create a rule for your staff to live by. For example, a client must be greeted as soon as they walk in the door. This helps keep standards high.
TIME Managing time can be challenging when it’s busy or clients are running late. While it’s best to minimise this occurrence, it’s not always avoidable. It’s important to have processes in place to rectify the situation so it doesn’t affect your clients’ experience. For example, if you’re running late, inform your client in advance and offer them a free treatment or head massage during their next visit. It shows you value them and genuinely want their experience to be a positive 96 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
one. It’s also important to look at time from the perspective of the appointment. Ensure you book in a sufficient amount of time for a service and do an exceptional job. Being in a hurry can leave the client feeling rushed and unappreciated.
for your staff to wear as they carry out their jobs. Create clear appearance rules and guidelines for your team so it’s easy for them to achieve your desired look and ensure they take ownership for how they present themselves.
Your salon not only needs to look good but it needs to add to your client experience. Think about how you want your clients to feel when they visit. For example, do your clients want to relax after a long day of work and stress? If so, your salon, spa or clinic could be painted with light colours, decorative touches should be simple and calming, soft music selected. Ensure you think about every aspect of your space furniture, equipment, flowers, magazines and drinks. Don’t forget about non-visual things too, like scent and sound.
Sometimes the smallest things can change how a client feels about their appointment. • Note down important conversations you’ve had during a previous appointment, then you’ll be well equipped to show your clients you really care. Having a genuine interest in a customer can result in a lifetime client. • Remember preferences. Knowing their favourite drink, partner’s name and job are simple yet effective ways of making your client feel well taken care of. When it comes to remembering the details, salon and spa software comes in handy. It keeps all your client details in one easy-to-access place. • Be thoughtful. You could ask when a client’s parking runs out as they arrive and offer to feed the meter. Or purchase some inexpensive umbrellas and keep them at reception to offer clients when it’s pouring with rain.
Appearance Your salon team not only add to the look and feel of the salon, but they’re selling your business, your brand, your culture and your reputation. Whether you have uniforms or a dress code, it’s important to think about how this reflects on your client experience. Think about if what your staff wear fits with the look of your salon, spa or clinic and if it’s practical
IMPROVING YOUR CLIENT EXPERIENCE If you’d like to use some of these ideas to make your client experience exceptional, there’s a simple framework to follow. You’ll need to think about three things: culture, accountability and systems. CULTURE: Ensure you create a culture where the importance of service is paramount and everyone knows they’re responsible for taking care of clients. Hiring the right people who fit into your culture will help achieve this. ACCOUNTABILITY: Ensure your entire team knows that they’re all responsible for ensuring every client experience is an exceptional one. Creating team accountability, rather than individual, helps ensure each team member will work just as hard as one another to meet your standards. SYSTEMS: These create the foundation and support needed to implement new initiatives consistently. We hope this has given you some inspiration to improve your client experience to be an exceptional one! Joanne Neville is the Chief Marketing Officer at Kitomba Salon & Spa Software.

Derek Elvy In Memoriam A tribute to legendary New Zealand hair icon and founder of Buoy Salon & Spa, Derek Elvy
Michael Beel DIRECTOR OF BUOY Derek Elvy - the man, hairdresser, enigma, mentor, leader and visionary that marched to the beat of his own fabulous drum. Derek has shaped, moulded, and affected so many lives with his thoughts, actions and humanity. I’ve worked alongside Derek for 20 years and not only was he my work colleague but my boss, business partner, mentor, friend, and in some ways, more of a dad than my own. I can’t begin to tell you the hole he has left in my heart. When I started at Buoy, I was a little upstart, thinking I knew it all: bright-eyed with the 100 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
most hideous haircut from the deep South. But clearly he saw something in me and offered me a job. Being the confident poof I was, I thought I would be cutting and colouring Wellington’s elite from day one - Derek had other ideas. I didn’t leave the laundry for the first month. Starting me from the bottom up, Derek shaped me into the best hairdresser and human I could be. He taught me not only to be a great hairdresser but view the world from a different perspective, to get outside my comfort zone and relish the creative journey...not just the end product. I had an opportunity when Derek was diagnosed with cancer
to spend an afternoon filming him in his home, talking about his top 10 images…a day that was magical for me. I asked what the one highlight of his career was, thinking he would say one of his countless awards, or even creating Buoy. But he said his clients: clients that have allowed him into their lives, the trust they had in him, their belief in him and Buoy, and everything he did that kept them coming back to him. Hairdressers have a very special role; we deal with people’s confidence. Derek understood that more than any other hairdresser I know and working alongside him, absorbing his kooky ways, his attention to detail and wicked sense of humour has made me the hairdresser I am today.....thanks D. Derek created a legacy with Buoy. Along with Phillippa, myself and the team, we will not only keep the legacy alive but strive to keep it the best salon in New Zealand and one of the best internationally. Derek’s muse, David Bowie, once said, “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise you it won’t be boring” and I believe wherever Derek is now, he will be marching to the beat of his own drum and continually inspiring others. I am honoured to have you come into my life Derek. I love you.
Phillippa Middleton MANAGING DIRECTOR OF BUOY Derek did nothing by halves. I learnt if he wanted or believed in something, there was nothing you could do to stop him. Stubborn is an understatement. Over the years, we had competing businesses which didn’t affect our friendship. Derek was 7 times NZ Hairdresser of the Year, he received multitudes of salon awards for Buoy, and helped many others that worked for him achieve great things and go on to have amazing international careers, while inspiring hundreds in the industry to achieve the heights and standards he set. It wasn’t until the global financial crisis that he reached out, as his brand was in trouble. Derek was many amazing things but he wasn’t a businessman. Luckily, I had sold my business
and was having a break. I came in to help. He was very proud, very kind. It was hard for him to see the brand he had spent years building about to die. I made a promise to do my best to save it and we did. At that stage, he only wanted to save the business to make sure his staff had jobs. He was so kind and forgiving. He would even allow people back into his life that had really wronged him. He would always find it in his heart to forgive. He wanted to see the good in everyone. He would give, give, give - that was his nature. After the salon was booming again, we became business husband and wife. Well, business husbands and wife, as Derek wanted Michael to be his successor and take over when he retired. Sadly, his health started to play up. The news wasn’t good
and D was told he had liver cancer. An intense journey continued: three years of operations and treatments and in the end, it went to the bones in his spine, which is a very unkind way to go. He fought the whole way, brave and strong. Derek came to me during the first stage of this journey and said, “I have done many things but I’ve never owned my own home. Can you help me?” I rolled my eyes and said yes, knowing this wouldn’t be just any housebuying journey - I was in for a ride! Finally, he found it… hell I thought, here we go! Four derelict buildings in Featherston. We had to climb through broken windows to view it! Knowing he was terminally ill, we tried to talk him out of it, but this made him more determined. With lots of help from many friends and family, he did it. He created an amazing masterpiece out of this property and a core group of us made it our mission to help him complete it and live in it before he flew away. We shared many laughs in the office, then again in Featherston. I would go for sleepovers to care for him. We would binge watch movies or sit around chatting and laughing. Sometimes Mike and I would go for a sleepover, so Derek could join in on our work meetings and catch up on the goss. He never stopped hoping or fighting until eventually he knew he couldn’t take it anymore, then he finally gave in to his long, painful battle. Derek you are a legend, artist, great friend, and a truly splendid person. I will miss you forever. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 101

ocated in Savelletri di Fasano, where the hills of the Itria Valley gently fall away to the Adriatic Sea, lies the awardwinning Vair Spa, housed in Borgo Egnazia Hotel. Born in 2010, the visionary project of local designer Pino Brescia brought to life a tribute to traditional architecture which incorporates materials (local stone and hand-cut “tufo” stone) and features such as small windows and porches typical of the region.
REMARKABLE SETTING This magnificent hotel offers three accommodation options to choose from, including La Corte, the main building which boasts 63 luxury rooms, the spa and numerous pools. The famous Borgo traditional village is at the heart of the property, made up of 92 houses connected by cobbled pathways, and finally 29 villas with private gardens, pools and staff to take care of your needs. Guests also have access to renowned San Domenico, an 18-hole golf course deemed one of the best in Italy, as well as the hotel’s two private beaches, and six restaurants inspired by local tradition.
VAIR VISION The atmosphere of the spa itself is filled with the amber light of hundreds of candles, caressing walls of “tufo” and local stone flooring. The spaces are deliberately quiet and softly silent, with water featuring as the spa’s beating heart that comforts and heals. It’s a place where travellers can explore themselves and come out renewed, conscious and joyful. The talented Vair Spa therapists are experts in naturopathy, psychosomatics, aromatherapy, kneipp hydrotherapy and more. Vair programmes are fondly described as full of poetry and refined details, with their names originating from the dialect of Puglia. A touch of charm that is key to these uniquely personal spa journeys.
SERENE SIGNATURES At Borgo Egnazia everything is in balance, and it’s no wonder Vair Spa was awarded “most life-changing experience” by Condé Nast UK in 2017. From the dry stone walls to the intertwined secular olive tree, Vair Spa is completely driven by a philosophy of balance between body and mind. That is why their unrivalled Tarant retreat, dedicated to women and which can only be partaken in at certain times of the year, is so ground-breaking. This exquisitely feminine and liberating three-day journey is infused with the phenomenon of tarantism, an ancient community ritual in Puglia with an extraordinary blend of dances, spa treatments, traditional music and typical Puglian dishes, with the aim of profound psycho-physical rebirth. An unforgettable experience in a beautiful part of the world.
“Vair means “true” in Puglian dialect, and it is true wellbeing that can be found there”
Vair means “true” in Puglian dialect, and it is true wellbeing that can be found here. The beautiful spa occupies around 2000sqm within Borgo Egnazia, and is open all year round, featuring Roman baths with a tepidarium, caldarium and frigidarium, a saltwater floatation tank, sauna and Turkish baths. Nine massage rooms and two beauty booths are available, as well as a
manicure and pedicure area, hair and makeup, fitness and lyenger yoga studios, relaxation room, spa cinema, and a spa suite with private courtyard.
“It’s a place where travellers can explore themselves and come out renewed, conscious and joyful”

3 I really want to do a U.S. road trip this year, visiting some of the southern states. I’d love to also check out The Winchester Mystery House in San Jose and The Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo.
MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY?
We stayed in the Champagne region for my 30th birthday and had some of the best food, experiences (and of course champagne). We had the most fantastic meal at Les Crayeres - a Michelin star restaurant and hotel. Another night we were hosted for a degustation meal by Moet & Chandon at their country estate, along with w ith some of their

top winemakers. A once in a lifetime experience.
BEST IN-FLIGHT BEAUTY TIPS? I like to take my makeup off as soon as I board, apply a sheet mask when the lights dim and use La Mer The Revitalizing Serum, a rich moisturiser, and eye cream after. An eye mask is fantastic for sleeping and nice fluffy socks to keep my feet warm.
GO-TO MAKEUP LOOK ON HOLIDAY? If it’s a city holiday, I tend to wear what I usually do at home: red lips, mascara, liner and brows. If it’s a beach holiday, I wear a light-weight tinted moisturiser with sunscreen and a cheek and lip stain which I will swap out for a red lip at night.
WHERE ARE YOU TRAVELLING TO THIS YEAR? I have a trip to Bali booked in August and hopefully also New Orleans for a wedding.

PRIME TIME Anne O’Brien explains why it’s time to prime the skin
eason after season skin is always in. The winter elements however, can leave our clients (and our own) faces redcheeked, dry, itchy and uncomfortable - not so ‘in’. Rather than reaching for layer upon layer of foundation, concealers and powders, encourage your clients to let their skin breathe deeply and apply only skincare layers for a minimum of one day a week.
PREP Changing to a more nourishing cleanser is essential for winter skins – we know we go on about it but seasonal changes are a must. You all are aware of the results enjoyed by introducing AHA’s, regular peels and deep cleansing masks but we are also loving dry brushing for the body and face! This is the hottest new/old trend that Goop basically relaunched as a potent dry skin and cellulite banisher. This is something to relook at for the season as it has taken off in Europe and we’re loving it at Headway.
PRIME The layering of products is never more important than during the winter and for us, it seems to be as logical as layering our bed linen and our clothes to keep warm and cosy. You can easily introduce two new products to your client’s routine in the winter, as the layering is essential for curing dry winter skin. In fact 2 may not be enough, as we know the typical So-Ko fan has, on average, a 7-product application to maintain their luminous skin. Discuss with your client what she/he currently has as part of their daily ritual and think about what you have to complement this routine. Layering - for a rosy winter glow rather than a raw, dry and tight complexion.
The time part is the key to great winter skin, as layering does require a little more effort in the morning and evenings. Sometimes the routine can look overwhelming and, “I don’t have time for all this” is often an objection. An easy solution – time the prime. Your clients will be pleasantly surprised at just how little time the new winter routine takes, about the same as brushing her/his teeth. Think of it as 3-5 minutes of self-care every day for a great return. For some clients, this may be the only time of the day that is their own! 118 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

LEFT: Donna Tait RIGHT: Kirsti Shuba
What inspired the creation of the Katherine Daniels brand? Our inspiration came from the wish to create skincare that concentrated on treating the main skin conditions we see in salons and spas. We understand skin sensitivity is on the rise, with over 60% of people complaining of sensitive skin. We also appreciated most people want to look as young as possible for as long as possible, so anti-ageing came into everything we created. We wanted clients to say ‘wow’ when they looked in the mirror and offer clients ‘Better Skin for Life’. We aimed to demystify skin and make a good skincare routine at home that’s easy and effective. This is why we introduced our 4-step prescription process and colour coding. What is the Katherine Daniels approach to skin health and beauty? Our approach is to help skin work harder for itself. If skin is not functioning properly, lacking in water and under-producing oil, we’ll never be able to utilise antiageing ingredients efficiently to get the same results if skin is functioning well. We analyse skin by genetic skin type - conditions due to lifestyle, environment, and climate, and include the ageing process, dehydration and sensitivity. We can 122 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
The brand has won numerous awards in the four years since launching. What do you credit this success to? We do what most brands do but in a better way. We combine the finest active ingredients, with over 65 years of industry experience, and a team of skin scientists. We totally ‘get’ what people want from their treatments and products (we know because we ask them!). We deliver results quickly - it’s a winning combination! What are you most excited about product-wise right now? The launch of our Miracle Cleansing Jelly has been huge. Giving the very best cleanse, we want to deal with the problem, rather than just cover it up. The jelly is a multi-texture cleaning product. It starts as a jelly, turns to an oil thanks to the warmth and movement across the skin, then lifts into a beautiful milk when a few drops of water are added. It’s gentle, fragrance-free and lifts all types of long-wear and waterproof makeup quickly and efficiently. What can we look forward to from Katherine Daniels for 2018? We are launching our first SPF, Daily DNA Defence SPF30, which uses an ingredient to protect and repair cellular DNA to help with pigmentation and skin ageing. Our Rehydrating Cream is in development, using incredible Turbo Hydrating actives, and the latest generation of youth-boosting ingredients. Total Skin Repair Concentrate (launching December) is anti-ageing at its most powerful – a gel consistency to put back what nature takes away during the passing of time. Much more to come in 2019!

SEA THROUGH Sharleen Singh explores skincare secrets and active ingredients sourced from the ocean’s depths
COMMON INGREDIENTS There are many skin-transforming ingredients that can be found under the deep blue.
Pearl Many of us share a memory of wanting to play dress-up with our mother’s exquisite pearl jewellery (and an equal amount of memories trying them on in secret!). Especially in the Asian market, an ideal skin would be that of a pearl’s finish; smooth and radiant. This gem has been used as a skincare ingredient as far back as the Ming Dynasty in ancient China, and it’s as popular as ever today, popping up in sheet masks, moisturisers and even deodorants.
Seaweed This slimy green has been harvested by humans to be used as food for thousands of years. In skincare, seaweed has been found to be rich in antioxidants and amino acids, which can help unclog and purify pores. Seaweed possesses oilcontrolling properties and is deeply hydrating, as it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural moisture. This sea plant is featured prominently in your favourite lunch go-to, and as an ingredient in 126 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
cleansers, toners, and a number of skin treatments.
Red and Brown Algae There are more than 25,000 species of marine algae and 100,000 species of microalgae living in the ocean under extreme conditions. To survive, they have developed an amazing ability to “create ingenious molecules unparalleled in the terrestrial world”, according to Isabelle Guichon, Head of Communications at Thalgo. “Algae have an extraordinary concentration of minerals and trace elements contained in seawater, up to 10,000 times higher than terrestrial plants. Their tissues may, for example, contain 1,000 times more iodine, 100 times more calcium, 10 times more magnesium and copper and 20 times more vitamins than a terrestrial plant,” she says.
Caviar Not just a luxury canape, caviar extracts have been known to possess the ability to slow down skin ageing. Loaded with amino acids and vitamins that boost healthy skin regeneration, with continued use it can retexturise the skin, providing firmness, visible lift, and reduced pore size and appearance. Other notable mentions include: sea salt, used as an abrasive exfoliant; seawater, enabling minerals and trace elements to be bioavailable for the human body; and marine collagen, which combines deep antioxidant properties with amino acids for a powerful reparative and antiageing ingredient.

cientists have long studied the depths of the sea and explored its uses in skincare. With a multitude of oceaninspired goodies to choose from, here are the ingredients and benefits making serious waves around the world.
“Algae have an extraordinary concentration of minerals and trace elements contained in seawater”
WHY DOES IT WORK SO WELL?
FROM OCEAN TO SPA
There’s a reason our favourite mermaid Ariel had such flawless skin. Scientists believe the first cell life to form on earth was a marine bacteria, or a very simple single-cell algae. The ocean provided a very simple filtration system for the harsh UV rays that blazed down on the planet that, at the time, was devoid of an ozone layer. Thanks to the water’s protection from the harsh rays and the nutrients in seawater, species of microalgae could form and flourish. Most reports also unanimously note there’s no coincidence that seawater and blood plasma have a nearly identical chemical composition. They both contain naturally occurring trace elements and minerals, and the concentration of each mineral present is very similar. This means that our skin naturally recognises sea water, allowing our cells to absorb and assimilate it, offering a true source of balance.
As well as a number of quality skincare ranges that utilise marine ingredients, there are also plenty of options to introduce the ocean into your spa or salon, especially with the change in season. • Introduce a high quality salt scrub before your body treatments, to help products deeply penetrate the skin. • Consider a seaweed wrap, especially in conjunction with your winter body promotions, to detoxify and regenerate. • Try a saltwater foot soak to begin a relaxation treatment, to soften and soothe. Take advantage of the healing powers of the ocean and consider adding a splash of these ingredients to your current spa catalogue. With the ocean covering more than 70% of the earth’s surface, it may not be so hard to grasp that the fountain of youth has only been a quick dip away.

The ATeam T
he number one (or two, after sunscreen) tool in your antiageing skin care kit should be vitamin A. A true favourite of developers and researchers globally, this handy vitamins’ skin-perfecting properties are second-to-none.
WHY SHOULD WE USE IT? There’s a reason vitamin A has a reputation as the gold standard in skin ageing. “No-one in the world can afford not to replenish their vitamin A and antioxidants in their skin each and every day”, explains Dr Des Fernandes, founder of Environ. “It has long been known as the ‘Skin Vitamin’, but only recently has attention been focused on it as a ‘normaliser’ and indispensable factor in the maintenance of youthful, healthy skin,” he adds.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
INTRODUCING YOUR CLIENTS
Fast proven to be an essential rejuvenating vitamin for normal, healthy skin function, this is the most intensive anti-ageing vitamin in your skin care diet all year round. “Most of us will have skin that shows signs of environmental stress or damage. In this case, most of us will start out by being vitamin A deficient” explains Karen Wilson, Environ NZ Technical Advisor. She explains that the best way to replace vitamin A deficiency in our skin is through a topical cream. It works by regulating the DNA of our cells, increases cell growth and improves cellular renewal. Vitamin A improves collagen synthesis and hydration, as well as improving skin tone, so when deficient in this essential vitamin, ageing, wrinkles, breakouts and pigmentation start to set in.
When it comes to vitamin A, as a rule of thumb always start low and go slow. The best way to increase your clients ability to tolerate high levels of vitamin A and reduce the chance of a reaction is to initially use smaller doses often, and build up to higher doses. The sun and environment also have a lot to answer for in damaging and ultimately ageing the skin, so making sure that your clients avoid the sun as much as possible, especially at peak times, is advised. “Any anti-ageing skin care routine should always be followed by a sunscreen that includes antioxidants,” states Fernandes. It’s easy to see the benefits of a vitamin A-enriched in-spa and homecare programme this winter. A rejuvenated, renewed and full-of-health complexion awaits.
FOOD SOURCES There are many foods rich in vitamin A, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, berries, eggs, butter, as well as leafy-green powerhouse kale. However, as with most naturally-derived vitamins, you would need to eat quite a lot of kale to ensure you receive skin-enhancing amounts of vitamin A. That’s where topical solutions come in to play.

How did Urban Sanctuary and your partnership come about? Jo: I left New Zealand when I was 18, a real “soap and water Kiwi girl”. After four years working and being exposed to the way European women took time out to have facial treatments and invest in skin care products, I opened a small clinic upon returning to Wellington. 14 years later I was joined by Linley after she had nurtured the last of her children off to school, and was ready to immerse herself back into the spa industry she loved. Now 27 years down the track, we are privileged to enjoy a wonderful joint business relationship and friendship. The business has gone from strength to strength to become the award-winning five-team spa it is today. How did you feel winning Decléor’s Supreme Award of Excellence 2018? Linley: We were thrilled. It’s always a great privilege to be recognised for your work contributions to the industry. It also gives us a chance to put our heads up and congratulate ourselves and feel proud of our achievements. Jo: It has been a great journey and a wonderful partnership working with Decléor for 27 years. For us, this award has been an endorsement of our dedication and enthusiasm to the brand. We have appreciated the training, support and friendship we have had over this time and it is an honour to receive the award for 2018. What key differences have made your salon stand out from others? Jo & Linley: We are both hands-on therapists and both possess our own individual strengths that we bring to Urban Sanctuary. One of us is always there to mentor and work alongside the team. We are committed to staying updated with training and always looking for new treatments to offer our clients. We are always striving to give all our clients an experience
of nurturing and relaxation. And most importantly, our DEDICATED and AWESOME Team. Thank you ladies! Do you have a favourite Decléor product/treatment and why? Linley: Our Urban Sanctuary Signature Treatment, the Deluxe Face & Body Experience. We describe this as a facial for the entire body with the delicious Decléor products. Jo: My absolute favourite product would have to be the Aromessence De Bain. Such a luxury to come home, run a bath, put a few drops of this gorgeous bath oil in and relax. How has your clientele changed over the years? Jo & Linley: We are seeing more men coming through our doors. It has also been interesting over the last five years to see the younger generation taking such an interest in their grooming and skin care, especially the eyebrows. Eyebrow grooming has become an industry of its own! What do you love most about being Decléor experts? Linley: Knowing that we can deliver positive results to the skin, as well as the olfactory bonus of instilling relaxation and harmony towards the wellbeing of our clients. Jo: Working with a brand that has held true to its philosophy of 100 percent natural for 40 years and having the knowledge and expertise to give clients truly fabulous skin care treatments and home care advice with confidence. What does the future hold for Urban Sanctuary? Jo & Linley: We are both very passionate about the spa industry and want to hold true to our beliefs about working with natural products. We are excited to be introducing our new laser treatments, working in partnership with Eclipse Lasers for hair removal and skin rejuvenation. Also, with the interest in eyebrows and how they have become such an important accessory, we are up-skilling our team in Microblading and have just launched this service, so it’s a big year for us! Stay tuned!

Dr Catherine Stone shares her findings from AMAC Professional Development Conference 2018 in Sydney
he Face Place Senior Medical Team has just returned from AMAC
Aesthetics and Cosmetics), a two-day conference in Sydney coordinated by Allergan, the company who brings us Botox®, Juvederm® and Belkyra®. Read on to find out why it was one of the best conferences Dr Stone has attended this year, with her five takehome messages. 1. Australian women feel judged often make more effort as they age. Results from a 2016 study of 2000 Australian women called ‘FaceValue’, showed that 62% believe that women are increasingly judged on how they present themselves. 67% believe they are under more pressure to maintain their youth and 31% put more effort into looking good as they get older. Most women wanted to look ‘the best version of myself’ (17%) or ‘good for my age’ (16%). Only 8% wanted to ‘look younger’.
2. What motivates people to seek treatment? The four patient archetypes. Social media significantly shapes patient motivation, as 42% of surgeons report that patients want procedures to take a better selfie. In the workplace, the ‘FaceValue’ study revealed that 34% of women agree that facial attractiveness and how old they look affects new job opportunities 132 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
and promotions, while 37% are conscious of looking tired or older than their counterparts. Motivation for treatment seems to fall into 4 main archetypes. • Positive Ageing Patient The positive ageing patient is noticing the signs of ageing, and that how they feel on the inside is not reflected on the outside. They may be entering a new stage of life such as a job change, the kids leaving home, a reunion, or an upcoming wedding which prompts a re-focus on themselves. A ‘positive ager’ might be worried about being seen as vain, so avoids talking with friends and family about treatments initially. They tend to be much more cautious with treatments and very keen to stay ‘looking natural’ - like themselves, just better! • Beautification Patient The beautification patient LOVES looking beautiful, and will dedicate a lot of time and money to making sure they
about their appearance and
Beauty | APPEAR ANCE MEDICINE
follow the latest fashion and makeup trends. They want to look like the ‘best version of me’, and will often want a significant change on a minimal budget. They tend to be very well-groomed, beautifully dressed, and good social media advocates. A beautification patient will often be quite specific in what treatments they would like, and will have often gathered their knowledge from celebrities or influencers. They are willing to spend if they can achieve the right look, but will also be a bargain hunter and try to shop around. They are seeking enhancement but still want to look like themselves. They will most often want their cheeks and lips enhanced, opening of the eye area, and/or improving the chin. • Transformation Patient The transformation patient wants to see their face change. They may seek facial slimming, facial contouring, chin, nose, forehead or cheek enhancement, or lighter and brighter skin. They will often already wear contouring makeup and other facial enhancements, such as eyelash extensions and tinted contacts, to transform themselves. A typical transformation patient comes from a culture where physical beauty equates with success and will usually see treatments as a competitive advantage. • Correction Patient The correction patient is continually bothered by a feature or area of their body. Their motivation in seeking treatment is to become more ‘normal’, improving their social acceptance, confidence and happiness. They are usually focused on the one thing that bothers them, and may try to hide the area with hats, long hair, scarves and dark clothes. A common concern for correction patients is asymmetry, either genetic or due to Bell’s Palsy. Familial under-eye hollows, headaches and migraines, teeth grinding, excessive sweating or a double chin might be other reasons that a correction client might seek treatment. When you solve their problems, they are extremely grateful and loyal, and often open to other treatments. 3. New Filler Codes may give an alternative to surgery. Mauricio de Maio developed the MD Codes as a structured approach to dermal fillers and showcased the latest techniques which achieve results that approach surgical results, but without the downtime of surgery. Building on the 4 archetypes above, he has taught us to consider the emotional drivers that many people seek treatment for, without them understanding what they are really asking for. For example, you might come and see me and say that you want to treat your crow’s feet and nasolabial lines, but when shown a chart with options of your emotional drivers, you realise you want to look less tired, have a little more volume, and to feel more attractive. By understanding your true motivations, we
“34% of women agree that facial attractiveness and how old they look affects new job opportunities and promotions”
increase the chance of matching your real expectation that you weren’t quite aware of, meaning we have another happy client. Mauricio has also changed our mind-set on the amount of dermal fillers that could and should be used in the face. I have always been concerned that large amounts of fillers would result in the unnatural or ‘overdone’ look that unfortunately we are seeing more of these days, and so have limited treatments to 1-3 syringes. Using the MD Codes, he showed us a structured way of providing incredible, natural-looking results to ‘rebuild’, contour and ‘refine’ the face in specific stages. Using the analogy of a house, he talks about how you must start with a good foundation, then add the walls (contour) and then add the furnishings and decorations (refinement). Addressing just your nasolabial fold with 1 syringe is like only filling in the cracks of a house that may need renovating. I had always thought that 16 syringes was ‘a lot’ of product, but Mauricio changed our minds with a great picture: 16 syringes of product is only 1 tablespoon! 4. Move your muscles after Botox for better results. Research now shows what we have long suggested to people: moving your treated muscles in the 30-60 minutes after your treatment may mean more uptake and a better result! Botox works to reduce the messages sent from the nerve ending to the muscle by blocking a specific neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine (ACh). ACh is released when the carrier pods attach to the very end part of the nerve and open up to release ACh into the synapse. It has now been shown that the receptor that allows Botox to enter the synaptic nerve ending hides inside the synaptic vesicles, which only open to release ACh when you move the muscles. So by actively moving your muscles in the minutes after your treatments, you allow more Botox to get to the receptors, hence enhancing your results. 5. The 2+2 Neck and Jawline Enhancement. For those who suffer from volume loss through the jawline and submental fat (double chin), the concept of the 2+2 Neck and Jawline Enhancement could be an exciting option. This involves 2 syringes of Belkyra, a fat-dissolving injectable treatment with permanent results, and 2 syringes of Voluma to enhance the jawline to reduce saggy skin. The Face Place is currently trialling Belkyra to ensure it fulfils our criteria of being high-reward, low-risk, and great value for money; but if the results are as impactful as promised, our team should be looking to introduce this combo treatment over the next 4-6 months.

Industry leader and beauty expert, Kim Ryan, takes a look at the importance of staff education
outcomes met by the staff members that have been discussed and documented. Don’t expect what you don’t inspect! Ask to see lectures and ask questions on what they have learnt from the course, be in the moment with your staff. I love it when a whole team turns up for training for the day, and they are all sparking off each other. You just know that they are going back to the clinic with such positive thoughts. Whereas the one lone girl that turns up, she is excited but she has no one to share that with. So if you are sending that one lone girl, get excited with her and you will reap the rewards. A well thought-out training plan for staff should follow a two-year programme. Start with basic product knowledge, then lead on to more advanced product and technology training the longer they’ve been with your business. This helps with staff retention, as they are not being trained in everything all at once and have things to look forward to. If a staff member comes to you with a special request to do a training course, and you think, hmm it’s expensive. Is he/ she going to stay and am I going to get a return on my investment? Ask for them to be bonded to the clinic for a period of time or the value of the training would be refunded if they left in a certain time frame. My advice is to invest in your future by investing in your staff training.

he million-dollar question that every business owner faces each year, and the question we should be looking at headon, is why wouldn’t we want to be training and mentoring our staff to be the best in the industry? Doesn’t this make our industry look as the leaders instead of the followers? Successful business owners invest in training their staff from the second they walk into their business until they leave. Yes, sometimes they do leave and yes, they sometimes become successful business owners, but you have been a part of that success. You can celebrate in that success because somebody, somewhere in your career did that for you as well. Always remember that. Success comes from training. I truly believe this after 20 years of training therapists at a professional level. I know that businesses that invest in training their staff regularly grow at a rate of more than 20% per annum. This is in-house training for two hours per month with a supplier, one-hour weekly training with a senior manager, and every 12 weeks attending a one-day workshop with a supplier, mentor, speaker or lecturer. Training your staff does come at a cost, however it should also be seen as a privilege by your staff and not an expectation. If you send your staff on a course, there must be objectives and

WHY DIDN’T THEY GET A RESULT? Fourteen years have lapsed since Florence asked those questions. They remain poignant and extremely valuable. However, based on my own operational salon in Titirangi, Auckland, our clientele’s behaviour has changed. • Clients are working longer, harder and at a pace that would be double, if not triple that of 2004, and want package deals to save time – two therapists in the room completing the treatments. • They often struggle with home care and sunblock compliancy, and sometimes believe we have a skin magic wand so they do not need to complete the routine you asked of them. • Their dietary habits are often sustained by convenience foods and fast foods. Albeit the “fresh clean eating regime’ is being promoted on many social media platforms. New Zealand companies such as “My Food Bag” and NZ authors are writing books like “What the Fat?” and reaching out to support frenetic lifestyles, but our clientele are not all embracing of this concept. • Exercise routines are performed at pace in rooms crammed with other stress bunnies, in lieu of a relaxed, de-stressing walk in our forests, or along a calming beach. • Water intake, often flavoured with unnecessary sugars, is developing glycation in their dermis at an alarming rate. • Sleep patterns can be erratic due to watching constant “on demand” screenings, not to mention the impact of being subsumed by picture-perfect Instagram images. • Over 75% of skins in-salon are sensitised with underlying inflammation. This is caused by applying perfumed, additive laden products on a daily basis.

Anne O’Brien begins our series with what is trending in 2018 so far
TODAY Whether you’re a fan or not, the market for invasive and noninvasive plastic surgery has increased by 25% since 2012 (according to AAFPRS*). Treatments for twenty-somethings and non-invasive procedures, like injectables, saw over 80% growth. What this means is that in our niche market as beauty professionals (looking after 5% of the population as a rule) you are likely to be treating clients who have chosen to enhance their skin or presentation via a cosmetic treatment. Developments in research and knowledge about what is actually happening to the skin as it ages has resulted in a new range of possibilities that you need to be more informed about. Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers, plasma, fat-transfer treatments, ultrasonic sound therapy and red light therapy are just a few of the non-invasive staples available now for clients not wanting to look ‘done’, but who are wanting to reduce the signs of ageing by presenting a rested post-holiday look. Begin to educate yourself on what is available for actual invasive procedures as well. The information around contraindications are critical for you to remain professional in all aspects of your client care.
This issue we expand our cosmetic enhancement section to include plastic surgery. We will look at procedures across the board and provide readers with today’s most popular treatments.
Before we look at what is trending it is important to ask, why the increase for twenty-somethings? Thirty years ago plastic surgery (using the knife as it was brutally referred to through the ‘80s) was for patients/ clients over the age of 55. A lot of reports suggest that the rise in younger patients is most definitely linked to the ‘selfie culture’. The impact of social media has had an enormous domino effect in the field of plastic surgery. More and more people judge themselves through a lens. Again, according to the survey, an increase of 13% (from 2016) of facial plastic surgeons looked after patients whose objective was at least in part to look better in selfies. Patients will document their surgery via digital stories without hesitation, confirming that a lot of social taboos have disappeared and the twist is empowerment versus embarrassment.
THE FUTURE – Move over plumped-up lip... The year was 2017 and it became known as the unofficial year of lip augmentation. Whilst lip plumping is still enormously popular, so far for 2018 the predictions have been fairly consistent across all publications. Designer vaginas, elevated nasal tips through hyaluronic acid filler and the Brazilian butt lift are well documented. We have chosen a few more interesting forecasted trends for the balance of 2018.
• Transgender/Feminisation Procedures Last year was the first time that ASPS** released any data on body contouring, facial feminisation and other procedures for transgender individuals. Records show a 19% rise in operations to assist people to confirm their genders in 2016.
• Smaller Breasts – A bra you never have to take off
*American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery **American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Imagine never having to wear a bra again? Well you can stop imagining and start saving for the laser-assisted breast reduction procedure known as Laser Bra. Doctors treat the skin with a CO2 laser for what has been described as an internal bra with no foreign matter.
• Blepharoplasty – Eyelid rejuvenation What a glorious word! Seriously though, eye rejuvenation continues to be number two for the year. This is the area where the loss of volume that occurs as we age cannot be replenished with fillers alone. The fat loss is too great. With the eyes being the most important feature of the face, it is little surprise that this is still in the top three treatments each year.
• Face Off
Finally we are seeing a shift off the face to treating arms and legs. Radio frequency tightens slack skin and a mixture of injectables restore areas that are too small to be treated with liposuction.
RENEW, SOFTEN AND PROTECT POST-SURGERY SKIN
Introducing a ground breaking new limited edition Vitamin E 15%, developed with distressed skins in mind, especially after advanced treatments. As well as stimulating epidermal regeneration, this antioxidant & anti-inflammatory serum allows for all round protection. An ideal post-treatment solution, and homecare option.
FOR YOU As already mentioned, as beauty, spa and wellness professionals it is advisable to be fully engaged in the surgical enhancements that are available for your clients. It is exciting to be able to have experts who have been happy to impart their knowledge with the Headway team and we look forward to sharing more news each issue.

Do you love yourself enough? Success Coach Annabelle Matson explores the necessity of self-love
Here are five simple ways to cultivate more self-love and transform how you see yourself and your life. 1. LET GO OF PAST MISTAKES
ne of the most important gifts you can give yourself is self-love. Until we become our own steady source of love, we continue to need external ‘things’, jobs and relationships to feel complete and comfortable. Unfortunately, it’s often cravings we cannot satisfy. Even when we achieve what we thought we wanted, it’s never enough, so we move onto the next thing. Instead of looking for a sense of approval externally, we need to cultivate this internally through self-love. Self-love is acting from a place of kindness towards ourselves, having deep respect and appreciation for ourselves and our unique value. Never underestimate the power of self-love and how it helps each aspect of your life.
YOU WILL: • Develop deeper connections • Let go of comparing yourself to others • Feel confident in your abilities • Have courage to pursue your dreams • Become empowered, recognising that you are your own source of fulfilment • Let go of unhealthy coping behaviours in relation to food, alcohol and stress
Let go of anything in the past you perceive as a mistake or something that didn’t work out. Allow yourself to be human! See these things as just an opportunity to grow and develop. When you learn to accept mistakes, you’ll be far more likely to be open and willing to take action on exciting opportunities that come your way. 2. FEED YOUR PASSIONS AND TALENTS
Start to create space in your life to explore new interests and do more of what feels good to you. If you are unsure and feel a little disconnected from yourself, ask: what is important to me? What did I love to do in the past, but have put to one side? Consider what you’re doing when you’re fully being YOU. The more you interact with the world as your truest self, the more comfortable you will be in your own skin.
best friend or daughter? These sound harsh, but they are often the words that are playing automatically in our minds. It’s not about being Pollyanna and being positive ALL the time. But when you hear yourself slipping into negative self-talk, just change the channel. Selfawareness around your words is going to change your reality. Your words have power – use them wisely. 4. TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO TREAT YOU
Do you say “yes” when you really mean to say “no”? Do you feel undervalued or taken for granted in your relationships? People learn how to treat you based on how they see you treating yourself. If you don’t put value on your personal time and your emotional needs, neither will other people. Give yourself permission to ask for what you need. Gently teach other people about your boundaries. If your boundaries are crossed repeatedly, have the courage to walk away or limit your exposure to whoever it is. We become more comfortable in who we are when we honour our own boundaries. 5. PRACTICE SELF CARE
3. WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE
Become conscious of the kinds of things you say to yourself, particularly when standing in front of the mirror, or when you’re doing something that feels new and unfamiliar. Do you say things like you’re dumb, clumsy, stupid, ugly, and hopeless? Do you tell yourself that “I could never do that”, or “I’m not good enough?” Would you say that to your
Do you allow yourself to have fun? Do you make time for things you find exciting? Do you take time to rejuvenate and re-energise? Do you sleep enough? Taking good care of yourself is a significant act of self-love. Love yourself enough to know that your needs matter, just as much as everyone else’s.

Disconnecting To Reconnect Lyndall Mitchell & Shannah Kennedy, founders of The Essentialists and leaders in life and wellness education, share their experience at Kamalaya Health Resort in Thailand @THEESSENTIALISTSHUB
aving been on our â€œretreat bucket listâ€? for many years, the day arrived when we got to take time out and recharge on the small, quiet island of Koh Samui at the beautiful Kamalaya Health Retreat. This retreat delivered everything we secretly hoped it would and more. Perched hillside, Kamalaya stretches from the lush tropical location to the idyllic beach on the untouched area of Suratthani on the island of Koh Samui. This is a retreat that offers guests a comprehensive experience no matter what your goal. You can go as hard or as gentle as you like. There are a few real world vices that can be sustained or abstained with your choice (i.e. alcohol and coffee) and the guidance from the staff at Kamalaya. We both loved the Asian Bliss Package, which for us was perfectly balanced for mind and body. From traditional Thai massage, Indian head massage, Ayurvedic treatments, yoga and meditation, to acupuncture and mentoring; an array of soul
satisfying and deeply relaxing, replenishing treatments awaited us. The food at Kamalaya was nothing short of spectacular and inspiring. Our age-old philosophy is that chefs can make anything taste delicious with enough salts, sugar and fat. The chefs that we were totally in awe of took those ingredients away and created unique dishes that tasted exceptional and had incredibly high super-charged value for your body. The drink menu had an array of local and unique fruits, herbs and vegetables carefully crafted in a mix to delight the senses and your body. The breakfast buffet featured a selection of unique seed milks, raw vegetables, freshly made whole grain breads and pastries, sugarfree fresh jams and purees, supercharged green shots and fresh succulent fruit. Lunch and dinner combined a perfect mix of Thaiinspired meals, to protein-fuelled fine dining (in a relaxed setting), less any additives! The view from the restaurant was incredibly relaxing from the hillside beach view balcony, the private bale or the actual beach view table. A great way to create happy digestion. The retreat is built incredibly sympathetically with nature and makes the most of this spectacular

The steam rooms are built integrating the renowned Koh Samui boulders, and has a running waterfall flowing in, creating a soothing steam environment. The staff at Koh Samui have a natural alignment and fit with the Kamalaya philosophy. As John Stewart, co-founder of Kamalaya so eloquently said, “We don’t find the staff, the staff find us”. The authenticity and radiating care for what they do is phenomenal. The spiritual connection to the land, with the spirit houses and monks caves, only adds to the overall presence and integrity of Kamalaya. With the 108 guests that Kamalaya can accommodate, the flow of your journey ensures
that each guest gets a complete experience and you feel tucked away in this haven for body and mind. The wellness centre is always a hub of activity, with 39 treatment rooms featuring ocean views and breezes. On average, the Kamalaya spa team deliver 250 treatments per day, with each guest having an average of two treatments per day. Given the large volume of treatments that the spa caters for, you would never know as a guest. Each treatment I had felt like I was the only person in the spa and the therapist’s primary focus. Every therapist I experienced had a deeply caring and vivid attention to detail of the environment and your individual needs. There were hidden areas laden with day-beds in quiet zones and relaxing plunge pools perched hillside throughout the open-air spa
centre. The scheduled activities as part of the programme deliver a great mix of flexibility, strength and relaxation, and the yoga pavilion view was a truly blissful visual experience. Your body feels soothed and expansive with the professional and leading teachers, as well as a view that does exactly that. On completion of our 7 night stay at Kamalaya, we felt deeply relaxed and boosted with vitality and energy. Having experienced many retreats, the programme delivered much more than we anticipated and left me making a commitment to an annual Kamalaya retreat. We both left with a sense of awareness that is just what we needed for our next exciting chapter. Add Kamalaya to your list if you would like the perfect place to pause and refuel - can’t wait for next year!
“An array of soul satisfying and deeply relaxing, replenishing treatments awaited us”

TOP TIPS FOR BOOSTING IMMUNITY THIS SEASON
Dr Simone Laubscher PhD, scientific formulator for WelleCo, explains the importance of nourishment when it comes to immunity
There are many variables when it comes to immunity but the one constant is cell function. Our bodies were designed to be well and fight disease. If you give your cells what they need, they are likely to split and divide correctly. If you are nourished on the inside, then your body usually responds 144 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
well. When we created WelleCo SUPER ELIXIR Greens, we thought about how to best support cell function via the 11 systems of the body. To boost immunity, we included shiitake mushrooms and maitake mushrooms. Then we added pomegranate and pineapple. The secret is we didn’t add them as single ingredients; we blended them together in order to accelerate the efficiency.
Increase your zinc Zinc is very important for cell tear and repair (which is a fundamental key to immunity). Oysters and fish are a wonderful source of zinc, as are pumpkin seeds, veal liver, sesame seeds and dark chocolate! Three-day seasonal detox Ahead of winter, it’s about warming and nourishing. For a 3-day liquid cleanse choose green juices made with the SUPER ELIXIR Greens, soups and WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN with almond milk. Not into liquids? Go vegan for three days and focus on fruit and vegetables in all the colours of the rainbow. Don’t forget vitamin C Oranges are a go-to but can make you more acidic. Try adding more lemons, limes, cranberries and pineapple to your meals instead, for a delicious boost of immunity this winter.
Acknowledge the change in season Increase your hot liquids, exercise regularly, get to bed half an hour earlier, and dress for your climate. Admit the seasons are changing and modify your behavior accordingly.

Tired, stressed & all the rest Sharleen Singh shares the Headway team’s experiences at BePure founder Ben Warren’s seventh nationwide seminar
t was a typical chilly evening when the Headway creative team braved Auckland traffic and made our way to Pukekohe for Ben Warren’s ‘Tired, Stressed and all the Rest’ seminar. Clinical nutritionist and founder of leading scientific, holistic health company, BePure, Warren has certainly made his name known in the health industry. Last year he asked nearly 4,000 people what their main health concern was and 91% responded saying they wanted more energy. Thus, this series of seminars was born. “Energy is the currency of life. It’s what allows us to do the things we enjoy and need to do each day” explained Warren. Something the Headway team holds especially true to their hearts, as energy is oh so important when putting together our beautiful magazine! Over the next 2.5hrs we were made to explore exactly how to get out of the low-energy and high-stress ruts most of us were facing. Especially when it came to stressful situations, with Ben sharing this crowd favourite phrase, judging from the frantically scribbling pens: FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real. “Research shows a direct link with tiredness-increased binge eating” explained Ben. This has huge implications for weight gain and hormone imbalance, as when we eat complex carbohydrates and sugary treats, our blood sugar levels spike. The end result? “We experience short highs and long lows. This vicious cycle sees us experience flat energy, such as 3pm slumps when we reach for that chocolate bar to keep us going,” said Ben, as our team stealthily hid the chocolate bars peeking out from our handbags. Ben kept the crowd engaged with his top tips, which included diaphragmatically breathing (expanding your stomach when you breathe in, not out), the correct water intake for your bodyweight, and a proper diet for your genetic makeup. We also took part in a zinc taste test, where we were instructed to take a vial of zinc water and swirl it in our mouths, and eventually we would either detect a very bitter taste (good zinc levels), or no taste at all (deficient). One of the team thought it was tasteless, while the other quickly reached for water and a mint (spoiler alert: it was the author of this piece). We left the seminar with BePure supplements in hand, feeling refreshed and enthusiastic, which was a welcome change for 9.30pm. Maybe it was the zinc, or the thrilling new lessons and tools we had learned. Either way, we’ve already started implementing these changes at head office (currently diaphragmatically breathing as you read this) and feeling better for it. bepure.co.nz
