urning 40 is a milestone in anyone’s life. But when a brand is 40, it’s testament to the relevance you have to the community you represent, and many decades of hard work. It was 1977 when Headway magazine hit salons across the country; that same year, Kanye West and Liv Tyler were born, and Swedish pop group Abba’s single “Dancing Queen” was a number #1 hit worldwide. It was also a time when technology took a giant step forward. Steve Jobs took Apple from a hobby to a corporation in the hope that the ‘personal computer could deliver to the average consumer something that was better than what they already knew’. And look how that has changed the way we work, live, socialise and above all, communicate. The big ‘40’ crept up on us, a time we have measured in trends; from perming to precision cutting, global colour to ombre. We have relished the last four decades as part of this vibrant industry. To celebrate our birthday, we asked five stylists who have spent 40 years in this business how the industry has changed and who continues to inspire them every day. See Style Makers on page 19. After 40 years at the top of their game, these veteran hairdressers are confident enough to make decisions quickly, recognise their success and rock their own individual style with pride; qualities the Headway team want to embrace with every new issue we produce. This edition, we share five stunning new collections from page 27, and talk to session stylists about the importance of educating the next generation of young hairdressers. See page 45. We also celebrate the global trend of upcycling and talk to a South Island stylist about creating a vintage salon on a shoestring. See page 47. We share ‘What’s Trending’ with hair and makeup on Instagram and Pinterest. And we investigate the health of skin and your business; from tackling pigmentation and correcting sensitivity, to making sure you continue to offer excellent service. Spa owner Lyndall Mitchell of Aurora Spas believes attention to detail is what will help your spa or clinic stand out in the crowd and keep pace with change. Speaking of change, this is my last issue as managing editor of Headway. While I will be around as editorial director, Charmaine Guest steps back into the editor’s chair after a year of maternity leave. A year away from work for Charmaine has been a valuable lesson in patience. Tackling the new role of motherhood, Charmaine commented: “The past year has been amazing, and the time has flown by.” A bit like the last fabulous 40 years for Headway magazine. We hope you like our ‘special collector’s birthday issue’, and as always, we love to hear from you.

New Zealand has some outstanding talent in salons. Trudi Brewer talks to hairdressing royalty to find out how business has changed over 40 years and why they still love their trade.

RODNEY WAYNE Rodney Wayne Hairdressing When did you start hairdressing? Over 40 years ago. What inspired you to become a hairdresser? A keen eye for fashion and design. I looked at a couple of career options, but hairdressing was the one.

What has been the biggest change over the past three or four decades? Without a doubt, Vidal

Vidal Sassoon

Sassoon and precision haircutting. Then the ‘passing’ of the permanent wave.

What would you never do again when it comes to hair? The anti-head shape; flat crown, high forehead and nape – UGLY.

What inspires you each day? Working with creative people and helping people look and feel great. What are clients asking for in your salons today? Beautiful, well maintained, healthy hair together with a great-looking colour. Each client is treated as an individual. There are no ‘cookie cutter’ haircuts at Rodney Wayne. What is still your greatest challenge after years in the business? Finding, training and retaining the very best people.

Who is your muse? Vidal Sassoon and Jean Louis David. However, when training in Melbourne, John Morrie and Edward Beale were my heroes. What advice do you find yourself giving young up and coming stylists? Treat each and every client as though they are your best friend or family.

What about this career still makes you smile? When I’m out and about and someone approaches me and says they just had their hair done at a Rodney Wayne salon. That brings the smile of happiness and pride.

@robertlobetta DEREK ELVY Buoy Salon and Spa, Wellington When did you start hairdressing? 40 years ago. This year also coincides with the 30th anniversary of Buoy Salon and Spa.

What has been the biggest change over the past four decades? In the 70's, it was the ambiguity of identity. The music industry ruled, the smoke and perfume of love and peace pervaded. Satin and tat and all that is Bowie and his influence. The 80's was all about experimentation to the extreme, and there was also a romantic face of fashion and graduate designer brands. Punk and anti- establishment was too volatile for me to find attractive. Also, there was a lot of social and financial change on a global scale; if you weren't in their company, you were somewhat overlooked. In the 90's, it was all about the marketing of the 'Super Model', propelled by party drugs, and cloned behaviour was deemed as acceptable. The 2000's were all about celebrity and gratuitous marketing ruled. And today, fashions come and go like night and day. Thankfully, we are moving towards a more responsible, sustainable and aware period. What would you never do again? I have never considered myself a colourist or technician. The process does not engage me at all, and I struggle when what is in my 'mind's eye' is not achieved.

What styles are your clients asking for in the salon? The accessibility of social media has given the client more information than ever. Sure, you will be garnered with the accolade if you can reproduce populous choice. Ultimately, women dress to impress other women, men are the accessory.

What is still your greatest challenge after years in the business? I have learnt the hard way. Your business needs to be sustainable and provide outcomes that are market-ready, have a culture and identity, and a sense of belonging.

“The accessibility of social media has given the client more information than ever.”

Who is your muse? British hairstylist Robert Lobetta. I have always favoured protagonists and this is what I have tried to communicate myself in sharing the message. Also, stylist Yoshi Su, who was an apprentice at Buoy, and has gone on to enjoy international notoriety for creating images that are complex and provocative, timeless and gracious. I love his mind and daring. What advice do you find yourself giving young up and coming stylists? Keep it simple. You have a set of senses, use them wisely.

What about this career still makes you smile. The luxury of finding a place of belonging; not in the limelight, not as a weapon of choice, but an industry where I can ‘just be me' and shed some enriched light on the possibilities. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 20

@marilyns_hair_salon MARILYN WHELAN Marilyn’s Hairdressing, Auckland When did you start hairdressing? In 1966 and I was 17. What inspired you to become a hairdresser? My girlfriend was coming to Auckland to do a hairdressing course, and I thought why not? It was a way to escape a small country town and come to the big smoke. Girls were not encouraged to go to university, and as I was a follower of fashion, it seemed to fit the bill. What has been the biggest change over the past three or four decades? I went to a Redken seminar in 1989, and the two American speakers predicted the 90s would be the decade of change - wasn’t that the truth. Every decade has seen great changes. When I started hairdressing, we cut hair dry, then shampooed and then set the client's hair. We also did a lot of perms and used a cap for highlighting. We didn’t condition the hair, and then along came Acitex. For home hair care we sold hairspray and shampoo that we bought in bulk and bottled ourselves. Next came blow-drying, and then sexy haircuts and less tortured hairstyling, wonderful colouring techniques and, of course, home hair care. What would you never do again that you did when you started out? Client hair every 15 minutes. That’s how it rolled; the adrenaline was addictive, but it was like working on a production line.

What inspires you each day? I am blessed to work in a beautiful salon with my wonderful team I regard as family and our terrific clients.

“Hair that they can style and manage, along with colour, shape and glamour, individually created to suit their lifestyle.”

What styles are your clients asking for in the salon? They want beautiful, healthy hair that they can style and manage, along with colour, shape and glamour, individually created to suit their lifestyle. What is still your greatest challenge after years in the business? Staff. It is always a battle to get the right fit.

Who is your muse? Grace Coddington. She is unique, true to herself and I admire her work ethic. She has been a quiet achiever and survivor in the constantly changing fashion environment. What about this career still makes you smile? Over 40 years, generations have changed, along with lifestyle choices and opportunities.

What advice do you find yourself giving young up and coming stylists? Don't get despondent. You cannot buy experience but if you stick to your knitting, hairdressing is an incredible career you can have all your life, travel all over the world and meet the most amazing people. There are very few professions where you touch people as we do, and this leads to a very special relationship with people from all walks of life.

What about this career still makes you smile? When I arrive at work and there is a buzz in our busy salon. When I watch my team having fun and creating work that makes them and their clients happy. It's hugely satisfying to see young people blossom and grow.

PAUL SERVILLE Serville's Luxury Hair Salons, Auckland When did you start hairdressing? In 1968. I was 16 years old What inspired you to become a hairdresser? My first hairdressing experience was in 1968, having my hair cut with a truly professional hairdresser. My experience was so great that I wanted to make other people feel like I did that day. What has been the biggest change over the past three or four decades? There used to be very few good hairdressers in the 70’s and 80’s here in New Zealand. Now, thanks to the digital world we live in, there are many well-trained hairdressers in every city.

What would you never do again when it comes to hair? Never did anything I didn’t want to do or believe in, so I don’t regret any work that I have ever created.

What inspires you each day? I’m inspired every day by the ever-changing world of hairdressing. What are clients asking for in-salon today? The trends that are driven by celebrities and social media. What is still your greatest challenge after years in the business? Finding passionate people. Who is your muse? I have many; from the fashion world, the music world and the design world, along with other hairdressers - so many Sassoon people throughout the years. Today, I love working with Frank Apostolopoulos; he is fearless. Over the years, I have been hugely inspired by David Bowie and his ability to reinvent himself through music, time and time again. I also love the words of Leonard Cohen.

What advice do you find yourself giving young up and coming stylists? It used to be all about hairdressing skill. Now the skill is communication between you and the client - consultaiton is everything. The better your communication skills are, the brighter your future will be.

What makes you smile? Watching passionate people at work, who are completely absorbed in the art of hairdressing and give everything to what they do.

GRANT BETTJEMAN Bettjemans Hair Salon, Auckland When did you start hairdressing? I was 15. What inspired you to become a hairdresser? I was always fascinated by the fact that Mum could go into this little stand-alone salon in Piopio, Te Kuiti, with straight mousy hair, and walk out with black curly hair feeling and looking a million dollars. Being able to change the way people felt about themselves motivated me to move to Auckland and start an apprenticeship at the age of 15. What has been the biggest change over the past three or four decades? During the late 60s and early 70s, it was all about the roller set where hair was ‘panel beaten’ into shape and locked in with hairspray for the week. Precision cutting saw the end of those ‘bullet-proof’ sets. The shape was in the cut with minimal blow-drying. Then came the era of the perm; everyone had one (even me!!) The next change was the colour revolution. One of the biggest advancements in the chemical side of our industry has been our colour formulas and application techniques. Colour has become so much a part of personal grooming - for some clients, it’s more important than the cut. Now it’s all about the experience. Successful salons recognise that excellence in service is what makes them stand apart. What would you never do again when it comes to hair? I would never have another perm. However, I never say never...

What inspires you each day? People. Nothing could be more satisfying than making clients look fabulous and feel confident. I am also inspired by the people in our team. Being part of a creative, professional team is a true privilege indeed. What are clients asking for in the salon today? Our salon is all about beautiful, glamorous hair. Working in Italy was such an eye-opener for me; there they don’t care about trends. All they care about is beautiful, sexy, feminine hair. That is what most of our clients want, hence the movement to the longer hair trend. so our greatest challenge is keeping them busy and motivated. We work hard to keep the Bettjemans brand current and popular.

Who is your muse? Fabio Gentilini in Italy and Sasha Lenski here in my salon. And Pierre Alexandre (now deceased) for innovative, opulent glamour and stunning showmanship. Also, Trevor Sorbie for his creative, but commercial genius.

What advice do you find yourself giving young up and coming stylists? I remember when I told my sheep farming father of five sons that I wanted to be a hairdresser. All he said was, “Remember son, you will have to support a family doing that, so you’d better be a good one”. I find myself passing that pearler on. Also, it’s physically demanding, so you need to be fit - and a positive attitude is everything in this game.

What about this career still makes you smile? People make me smile. I’ve been hairdressing for 46 years, and I think I have another 10 or 15 years left in me yet. I love being part of a young, creative team, and being the style guru to my warm and wonderful clientele.

Bella and Gigi Hadid From bronde to brunette the red and yellow lights of the Hadid's sisters were on fire at Versace on the runway during Milan Fashion Week. The shoulder-length lobs sporting a raven shades of brunette and honey blonde with red and yellow extensions, stole the show. "I wanna dye my hair red,� Bella Hadid told reporters backstage, after extensions were glued in and trimmed with a razor to match her natural length. The bright crimson against the richness of her new black-brown colour struck the perfect balance between punk and super sexy. While Gigi rocked highligher yellow. Here’s to more sibling styling we say!

Extreme Side Partings

@muglerofficial

There is more than one way to add shine to your style, and this season, a slick side part could be that easy ‘dash-outthe-door’ hair inspiration you need on days you don’t want to wash your hair. However, to own this trend, make sure hair is parted on the side to the extreme left or right or it doesn't count, and use plenty of hairspray, followed by a shineenhancing product to keep those flyaway strands in place.

Get the Glow This is the season to steal your boyfriends gel-wax. It allows you to create texture with loads of shine. For a ponytail, it adds glossy smoothness and calms those fluffy strands. Simply work a small amount through dry hair before you start styling to give hair a gorgeous shine and super lasting hold.

Sombre anyone? No, this is not a dessert or dance move but the cousin of the trusted and muchloved Ombre (also not a dance move) colour technique. But this new two-tone effect has a much softer blend, where the different shades do not connect - ideal for anyone wanting to explore the colour Bronde and not see a regrowth.

There is an entirely new category of bling to lust after this autumn, and this collection decorates your hair. Bendy clips and sparkly bobby pins resurfaced on the runways at the Fall 2017 shows in Milan. "Designers brought up this idea of the models looking like skater boys and the hair being a bit grungy and a bit cute as well. She'd have this messy hair but be wearing a tiara," hairstylist Anthony Turner told beauty reporters backstage. “Once the clips or jewellery is secure in the hair, go back in with a bobby pin underneath it to keep it secure.”

We’ve moved on from pastel blue to a trend that goes with everything – denim. Not quite the colour of your boyfriend jeans, think Ombre in moody greys and cool blues. We are not sure if it will catch on, or come anywhere near mainstream (like pastel pink is today), but it’s a whole new hue to play around with.

The artfully designed undercut Somewhere between sexy tough and slightly taboo is the emerging trend of undercutting. When cut to perfection, the look can be, oddly, quite elegant. The secret to pulling off this trend is to keep the designs simple; a triangle undercut, a few chevrons or a heart or lotus blossom is what we prefer. Ideal for women with any hair length, undercuts can make a bold statement or be hidden away. Here’s our picks from Instagram.

As a stylist, heated tools are almost your third hand. However, no-heat hairstyles are trending right now. While heat protecting spray works wonders for making sure hair is not damaged, nothing takes the place of naturallycreated movement when styling an 'up do'. According to Pinterest, no-heat hairstyles are up 40 percent more in search, while braided topknots, half-up buns, and headscarves are always in the top three searched styles. We dug through our Pinterest feed to find a few easy styles your hair will love without turning up the heat.

Matte Waves Curls in every formation are trending and nothing gives grit like a matte dry shampoo. It adds texture and definition, and helps cut down hair washing time. Spray dry hair when adding natural-looking texture, and then go in with backcombing. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 28

Behind the scenes

B

ecoming a session stylist is the dream of many young hairdressers, and Robert Kovacs is one of the best. Here are his plans for the year ahead.

What are some of your career highs? Wow, there have been so many. Winning the Hair Expo Excellence in Education award and then winning it again the following year was definitely a highlight. Launching ghd in Taiwan and then Hong Kong with the amazing Jayne Wild. And of course, starting the ghd training program from the ground up here in Australia and New Zealand.

What are you going to focus on with the 2017 education plan? Bringing hands-on styling skills back to hairdressers. Inspiring them to be the very best stylists they can be by partnering with the most iconic hairdressers in the industry.

What surprises and delights you each year about ghd? It would have to be constant change. ghd is a young, energetic brand which is ever-changing; from bringing innovation to market, including the recent acquisition by Coty, no day is ever the same at ghd.

What is the next generation of young hair stylists excelling at? Recreating what’s on the cover of the latest magazines. They are so open to trying new ideas and giving them a go; it’s so much fun helping to shape and influence them.

What do they need more guidance on? An understanding of core skills, which will bring their styling to life. They should always look to amazing stylists in the industry, like Jayne Wild and Richard Kavanagh, for inspiration.

What is on trend with hair styling? I love this question! It is about constant change. Styling has moved from glossy brushed finishes, to matte, combed, finger-styled texture, and today it’s about volume with a slightly polished, glossy finish. What constantly surprises you about using ghd tools and products day-to-day? They deliver what they promise and always make whatever style I create look great. There’s no compromise on performance or hair condition. You know when using ghd you’re using the best of the best.

What was your inspiration when creating the looks for Pia Miller in the autumn/winter campaign? The ghd wanderlust collection has four trends, exploring new places, new styles and new hair possibilities. The first look is beachy, casual, very editorial, free-moving hair, named NOBO, while the second is a glamorous, classic wave and curl, named Red Carpet Luxe. The third was about embellishing the hair with accessories named Adornment, which is really on trend right now. And the final look - the braid - called Modern Romance, is my favourite look. This textured braid is very popular on the runways at present. And if you can’t braid, you can learn how at our upcoming ghd braiding seminars.

What tools and products did you use to get these looks? The hero tools are all from our ghd wanderlust collection; ghd platinum tropic sky styler, ghd V gold ruby sunset styler, and ghd air wanderlust hairdryer. Of course, we also used a variety of ghd style products, brushes and combs.

What’s your desert island ghd product? The ghd platinum styler, as it does everything and is an all-round amazing heat styling tool. What is your best hair tip? Don't use too much product or too much heat. Use ghd styling tools with the ghd heat protect spray, and don’t overdo it. Keep hair looking natural.

Vintage Vibe Setting up a salon can be an investment, but with a great eye for upcycling, Invercargill stylist Caren Mackay believes it can be done on a shoestring.

T

he cost of opening a salon can often be the only barrier to having your own business. Invercargill stylist Caren Mackay believes in creating a salon that feels like a home away from home, for both clients and stylists alike. It should be a labour of love and not just a place to work. She shares her story with editor Trudi Brewer. There is no such thing a ‘typical’ office environment anymore. Today’s working spaces should blend family and home, particularly in a female-dominated industry. This vibe is certainly at play when you step into Do Hair in Invercargill, where owner Caren Mackay has created a vintage feel for her family of clients. "I feel lucky to have a brand new, custombuilt salon, but I am not a fan of stereotypical, stark design that often comes with a new salon," says Caren, who went to work designing Do Hair on a tiny budget using upcycled furniture and collectables. Three years on, Mackay has an established clientele that love the space she has created. "I

wanted to keep the families who came to me. I liked the bikes and gumboots at the door. I wanted ladies drinking wine down one end of the salon while their kids coloured in at the front of the salon. I like that family feel - that home away from home vibe." A labour of love, Mackay was the only stylist on the floor when she opened the doors three years ago. "My husband came into town from the farm to wash hair at night, and I had a couple of friends to help me during the day. Looking back, it was pretty crazy building a salon by myself, but I had this voice in my head telling me that if I built it, the clients would come." Designed and outfitted on a shoestring budget, Mackay now has a staff of four and business has never been better. "Everything in the salon is recycled (excluding our designer Comfortel basins and station chairs and Warehouse Stationary bookshelves) and all of our furniture is either second-hand, donated, or purchased online from op shops, and then reupholstered by me."

“T here is no such thing as a ‘typical office environment anymore.”

MACKAY’S UPCYCLING DESIGN TIPS. DID YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR THE INTERIOR, OR DID IT JUST EVOLVE? I was involved in the entire design; from the wall lights, to our gorgeous wallpaper and picture rails. We lowered the ceiling height over the styling stations for lighting and warmth, which stops the bright winter sun from hitting the back wall. The hardest decision was the flooring; everyone tried to talk me into the laying a wooden floor but I knew there would be plenty of wood with our furniture. I chose the soft, light grey tiles with metallic flecks to allow the wooden dressing tables be the stand-out. Throughout the process, my builders kept commenting, 'Why would you want it to look old? It's supposed to be brand new.' They just didn't have the vision I did.

WHAT WAS YOUR BUDGET? I didn't have a budget. I didn't know what anything was supposed to cost. The most expensive dresser was $100, which we bought locally; the others came from around Canterbury and were $80, but cost around $200 to get them down on a truck. I soon learned to buy from the same dealers to save money.

WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS LIKE ABOUT THE STYLE? We get the most comments on the wallpaper. I'm pretty sure we could have sold it by the container load. Our clients love having a generous space to relax in. They love that it's not dark, sterile or staged-looking. To quote one of our clients, Paula, "Even when the salon is full, your staff never seem rushed. Sitting in front of the dresser, I feel like my visit is all about me.” We recently bought a house, and I love bringing fresh flowers from my garden, which clients also enjoy.

“I put my heart and soul into this salon. I t ’s unique and a reflection of my personality.”

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES? The tea trolley and U-shaped table are my favourites; heirlooms from my Nana. My mum picked up the lamp by the basin from a country antique shop. She too has since passed away, so they are very special.

WHAT ABOUT THE FURNITURE? I recently picked up the floral lounge suite from the Hospice shop, and our desk, wardrobe, draughtsman's coffee table and dressing tables came from antique sellers throughout Canterbury. My husband restored the dressing tables with extra layers of varnish to allow us to use the strong cleaning solutions we need between clients. They are super-practical for storing tools and look great stacked with the generous pile of magazines and our handmade menus.

Our double height windows allow natural light to drench our space, keeping us cosy when the sun is low through winter and offer cooling shade in summer. We are passionate about our photographic shoots, and this space is just wide enough to fit a backdrop with plenty of space for models, makeup artists and stylists. And that it feels homely.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF? I put my heart and soul into this salon. It's unique and a reflection of my personality, my vision and will hopefully be the space I will 'Do Hair' in for the rest of my styling days.

minutes with... Sara Allsop. As a session stylist when you finally get a booking to work backstage at the couture shows in Europe that’s a win. Here’s her story.

ABOVE: Sara Allsop’s Instagram shots of her backstage moments at Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.

A

s a session stylist, the ultimate booking is to work backstage at the couture collections in Paris. Sara Allsop shares her fashion moment, rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most celebrated designers and stylists. When a call came late last year to work on the couture shows in Paris, Allsop's Instagram said it all. Accompanying a black and white shot of the words 'Haute Couture', Allsop said, "I'm coming Paris”. Here is Allsop’s story of being backstage at the most coveted couture collections in the world. It was twenty years into my career before I realised, as a New Zealander, I could work on fashion shows around the world. Eight years on and having worked most seasons in New York and several in Paris, London and Milan, the couture shows still eluded me. Late last year I got my chance. Before I left home, I was confirmed to work on Yohji Yamamoto with UK stylist Martin Cullen but the call time is tight. I land in Tokyo and fear sets in. My flight is delayed into Paris by two hours. I'll never make the show. Emailing the agent is terrifying; if you upset them, you can be dropped in a heartbeat. Once I land, I have messages and emails asking me where I am. I hurriedly message the agent saying the flight was delayed and apologise profusely for missing the show. Shattered, I head straight to the hotel and grab a bite to eat and much-needed sleep.

Travelling with my cousins, we get up and head out for coffee and croissants. After an impromptu visit to the Louvre, the agent calls asking me to meet Tina Outen for a Paul Smith hair test. I love Tina; there are very few women directing shows at any Fashion Weeks, let alone the couture shows, so I'm happy to drop everything and go. Male and female models are being cast in the same room while we work on the hair and makeup. I was only working on the female models, which I’m quietly pleased about. Hair tests can go on for hours if you don't switch onto the designers’ and stylists’ vision quickly. Thank goodness for Tina as she quickly nails the look for the show. Jet lag is setting in and I can barely keep my eyes open. I walk back to the hotel and go straight to bed with my last thought; I have been confirmed for Dior Homme and Acne tomorrow. It's going to be a juggle working on both.

The Acne hair test is a presentation, thank God. I head there first and tell Tina I have to leave early to go to Dior; she's cool about it, as it's pretty straight forward with only about 20 models. Off to Dior test with UK hairdresser Anthony Turner, pretty excited about this one. It's in the Grand Palais, with full-on security, including an X-ray bag check. It's like boarding a plane; you even need your passport here. I love Anthony Turner; he is so mellow and super cool. Today there are five sections - punks, mods, ravers, new waves and skinheads. He gets us all in a group and explains most of the models will need their hair cut; there are 60 models in total Straight into it, I get assigned the punk, and they all need haircuts reminiscent of Sid Vicious or Johnny Rotten. Having been a hard-core punk in the early, 80's rocking that very same hair look, it was easy. We finish with about an hour to spare, and after the show, I head out for dinner and drinks; early night tonight as tomorrow I have Paul Smith, Kenzo and the hair test for Dior Couture to attend. The Kenzo hair look needed to look like 'hat hair', which we set with hair nets to look like the models had been wearing hats all day. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 2

Day 3

Day 5

Up early and straight to Paul Smith. This is easy as there are only 12 girls in the show. The venue for the show is stunning; the hair is a dry texture that is effortless but looks "expensive". Being able to watch the show out front was special, though seeing British actor Bill Nighy wandering around backstage with Anna Wintour was also pretty cool - another career high. After the show, I'm off in an Uber across town to Delorme, to hairdresser heaven; a store stocked with an amazing array of pins, clips, brushes and combs under one roof. Guido Palau and his team are next door in a small salon where the hair prep is taking place. When I arrive I'm late; everyone else has started - not great. I know a few of his team by now, so I get straight into folding handy towels for setting the models hair. Yes, handy towels. Hopefully, I will be able to show the technique to other stylists one day. Sandy Hullet, Guido's first assistant who has worked with him for many years calls me over to discuss the finer details of the look, which has a huge emphasis on the technique and product. After this, we can leave. I'm supposed to be at the Kenzo show with Anthony - feeling shattered - jet lag is not my friend right now.

My first day with no shows. I get an email to check availability to do Dolce & Gabbana in Milan. I say yes to Couture but turn down the men's show. Later, I get an email from an agent wanting to confirm me to work on eight shows with Tina at London Fashion Week - I'm torn. I would love to come back and work in London. But it's only a couple of weeks away, and I live on the other side of the globe with two businesses to run. I recommend Kaleb Pritchard from our Dharma team, who we are sending to London Fashion Week in September.

I had to release myself in the middle of the night from the Iris Van Herpen show with Martin Cullen - I'm not missing Dior. I have a 6am call time at the Musee Rodin for Dior Haute Couture’s runway show. I am super-excited as this is why I came to Paris. I didn't care if I didn't work on any other show while I was here. Working on the Dior Haute Couture runway show has been my dream for the past ten years. Pitch black outside, we file in one at a time through security into the gardens. It's super-cold, -2 degrees and foggy, looking scary and beautiful at the same time. Once inside, we get to work setting up stations and the first models arrive. There are more than 60 models for this show today. I pair up with Chow, another of Guido's core team, and we start our first tissue-set curls, an old-fashioned curling technique. Working quickly, and getting straight to work on another set, six sets later, I then have the job of setting up for the core team to dress out the set

models hair. This is when you can't touch the hair (it’s reserved for Guido and the core team), as it only takes one mistake to stuff up the shape, texture and finish. Guido is pushing us hard to get the work done; it can be slow going at this stage as those finer details need to be perfect. The hair texture is beautiful, windblown and romantic, with show-stopping accessories. I love the results from the folded hand towels used to create the tissue set. Once the headpieces of feathers, flowers and branches are placed in the hair, the models look stunning. Now the models are dressed, the hair team, (minus Guido's core team), head backstage. It is now we get to eat and sit down to watch the show. I'm so happy right now; I can finally tick this one off my bucket list. It's at this time I realise I'm late for the Ralph and Russo show. You absolutely cannot leave a show before the hair director leaves. I would be dumped in a heartbeat if I did this, so I message Freda who is producing R&R telling her I'm going to be late. They are creating a bob look using wigs, which is super straight forward. A huge day - it's now 4pm. I've been in the prep room since 6am, up for 12 hours, I'm heading to have dinner and a dozen red wines.

Up at 4am to catch an early flight to Milan. Our flight is full of models and the hairdressers I have been working with this week. Call time is 12.15am, yet the 100 models don't arrive until 2pm. Walking into the venue, there are buckets of flowers everywhere; crowns and headpieces and exquisite feather velvet headbands and hats. The look was exotic, loose and feminine, with barely any product used. It's a long day; I’ve been up since 4am and I’m shattered. The balls of my feet are aching, and I’m constantly thinking about bed – now I’m wondering if it’s worth it? Then I get an email from Anthony Turner's agent asking for my availability for 14 shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris in February. Again I'm torn. This will be our first season for years not travelling for Ready To Wear (RTW) shows, and I enjoy working with Antony Turner. If I were based in New York or Europe, working on these shows each season would be a certainty. However, I live in New Zealand, and the reality is you have to travel every season. Funding flights and accommodation isn't cheap, and the likelihood of getting confirmed on even one show in your first season is slim. I would like more NZ hairdressers to experience this. It has taught me so much. I love working alongside other stylists backstage, and sharing the experience over the years with Jock Robson (my husband) and my son and daughter. Fingers crossed I get to work on the Couture shows in July and September for RTW; let's hope I'm still getting emails from the agents when the next season collections roll around.

minutes with... Meet Julianne McGuigan, star stylist and Oribe ambassador.

A

s far as session stylists go, Sydney-based Julianne McGuigan is right up there on the world stage. Trudi Brewer met with the Oribe ambassador on her recent education tour to Auckland and discovered hair styling is not her only talent. Julianne McGuigan's CV is impressive. An editorial stylist, she has been backstage at Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks and worked for some of fashionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest names including Chloe, Balenciaga, Prada, Louis Vuitton and the late Alexander McQueen. Her signature style has graced the glossy pages of American and European publications, including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle. And she is one of the most sought-after stylists for creating red carpet looks for celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson and Catherine-Zeta Jones. In Sydney where McGuigan works from Barney Martin's salon, her passion is still catering to her loyal clientele and spreading the message of good hairdressing skills.

WHAT IS A TYPICAL WORKING DAY FOR YOU? There isn't one; it varies. I have a large clientele at Barney Martin Hair where I work in Sydney. I have always specialised; I cut hair but don't colour hair. If I look at HEADWAY.NET.NZ 64

McGuigan’s styling

WHAT KEEPS YOU AT THE TOP OF YOUR GAME? I try to surround myself with the best. I am always learning. Now with Oribe, I have the opportunity to work with lead stylists in the Oribe family. This brand is 100 percent artist-driven, so for me, I would do that for free.

WHAT AND WHO INSPIRES YOU EACH DAY? So much inspires me, art and movements. I am really into music; it affects me emotionally, so I like to see the threads around those art forms. Also, stylists who are working on the big shows. They have big budgets and beautiful girls to work on. I love Sam McKnight, James Pecis, Eugene Souleiman and Guido Palau, who I have worked with for a long time, and from whom I have learnt the most.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CAREER HIGH TO DATE? I lived in New York for three years and got to work with some amazing photographers there between 2003 and 2006. I also got to work on Alexandra Mc'Queen’s last show before he died, which was inspired by Gaga and Aliens. The hair was extreme, and the gowns were made entirely from feathers that were dyed from light to dark like a bird - it was very dramatic and at the same time very moving.

WHAT IS ON TREND RIGHT NOW WHEN IT COMES TO AUTUMN/WINTER SHAPES AND STYLES? Curl is back but 70's-inspired layered,

razored, curly cuts. The technology behind new products now allows you to create that curl with ease. As far as colour goes, redheads are making a comeback.

WHAT MAKES ORIBE SPECIAL? It is created and made in a Swiss beauty lab and was researched for six years before it launched. The people behind the brand have been in the industry for decades. Daniel Kaner, who came from the Bumble & Bumble group, was the brains behind the brand - Oribe is his baby. Every product has the patented fragrance, Cote Azure, made in the same perfumery as the Tom Ford fragrances. From a styling perspective, every product does exactly what it says it will do, which has filled many holes for me as a stylist. As a brand, it is so inclusive; you are in touch with the heads of the company and they choose the people that represent them carefully. To quote Daniel Kaner, he has a 'no dick head's' policy, which is truly a joy when you are working in a team.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ORIBE PRODUCT? Maximer Thickening Spray - I can pretty much use it on any style I create.

SHARE SOMETHING WE WOULD NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a singer and a lover of animals. I would own a gigantic farm if I could.

my calendar over a month, I have set days in the salon cutting hair, editorial work and atelier work as an Oribe ambassador. I am really into education. The traditional forms of hairdressing education in Austraila’s apprenticeship system is starting to fall apart (I can't speak for New Zealand). What stylist’s have to do to get their licence from a TAFE college is dated, and it is not the teacher’s fault; it is the system that exists, and it's not regulated. So there is lots of opportunity for a fresh approach.

Hair | BRONDE

Being bronde The business of being brunette just got interesting, thanks to the colour of the moment - bronde. The transition shade so many of us once described as mouse-brown is now the hottest blend of sunkissed chestnut and honey brown. Trudi Brewer shares why this in-between shade and all the variations of it are perfect for autumn.

ronde - the clever and very flattering combination of blonde and brown is hot right now. And while it does work best on those with warm skin tones, unlike its sister shade blonde, there is no limit to being creative with this colour. If you’re blonde, the darker hues add depth, while those softer caramel blondes give instant illumination to a dark brunette. The key to achieving this colour is to have lots of the natural base shade of 4, 5 and 6 showing through, then add fine ribbons of gold to complement the eye and skin tone. The lighter ribbons create movement and texture on fine hair, and a youthful lift when placed around your face. Bronde colour placement can be used to highlight specific facial areas. For example, it can lift and enhance cheekbones or elongate the neck by adding lighter tones in this area. It’s also great for enhancing or concealing.

BRONDE TECHNIQUES Bronding The term coined for the mix of brunette and blonde when created on a dark brown base. Using tones of honey and platinum blonde highlights, or darker shades of chestnut and mahogany, are especially flattering when added to layered wavy cuts.

Halo lights A highlighting method specifically designed for short hair placed only around the face. Halo highlighting is all about the placement of colour within a cut to emphasise the shape and movement. Traditional highlights can look 2D and flat on shorter hair, or worse, spotty and patchy. But this technique avoids that result together when colour is smudged through the top surface layers to lighten the complexion.

Post-colour hair needs Minu Colour Lock In Salon Treatment. Davines’ professional fixative colour fluid gently closes the cuticles after colouring, compacting the structure of the hair increasing shine and colour longevity. www.boutiquebrands.co.nz

APRAISE Brow Styling Wax APRAISE Eyebrow Shaping Wax creates striking brows that make an impact. This colourless wax for shaping, defining and fixing brows, can be used alone for a simple, sleek look, or used before adding colour for a high definition effect.

Floating lights Those with fine, thin hair will love this result, which involves placing graduated colour away from the roots, lower down the length of the hair shaft. It is ideal for adding 3D definition and creating the illusion of thicker hair.

Available at www.dateline.co.nz

Ribbon technique Fine ribbons of hair from beneath the natural parting are separated and lightened to create flashes of multi-dimensional texture. This technique adds a subtle colour change and is perfect for creating soft movement on straight hair. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also ideal for brunettes wanting to add warmth with hidden bands of copper, bronze and cinnamon, or for blondes looking to add soft buttery highlights for warmth, or platinum tones to neutralise yellow.

Trend setting? What’s trending? Over the years, we’ve seen many style trends flow through the market; think Vidal Sassoon who changed the way everyone looked at hair in the 60s. It’s trends like Sassoon’s that have shaped the hair industry for decades. But what are the business trends we should be looking at? We’ve analysed over seven million appointments across New Zealand and Australia and identified some key trends that have occurred over the last five years.

What hasn’t changed? Client revisit period Your client revisit period is a really important number in your business. The length of time clients take between appointments has a huge impact on your annual revenue, and reducing it by even the shortest amount of time will result in a massive jump in revenue. In the last quarter of 2011, we saw a client revisit period of 40 days (5 weeks and 5 days). However, since 2012 New Zealand has experienced a consistent client revisit period of 46 days (6 weeks and 4 days). This revisit period increase of 6 days has, on average, decreased salon revenue by $1,400 per week. Interestingly, Australia has historically had a higher client revisit period compared to New Zealand by two days.

Retail spend Over the past five years, we’ve seen no change in retail. Retail revenue, retail spend per client and the number of clients purchasing retail has remained level. Of course, the Christmas period continues to bring a peak to sales.

Rise of the super salon Thought of as the next big thing, super salons haven’t become a large segment in the industry. Instead of the best salons bulging with a tonne of stylists, needing larger premises and becoming super popular, the market has maintained a range of salon sizes. In fact, less than 2 percent of salons have 15 or more staff.

What’s changed? We’re beating Australia in rebooking That’s right, when it comes to rebooking rates, we’re well ahead of Australia! Data over the past five years shows that we’re hitting an average rebooking rate of 58%, up from 49% in 2011. Why? We think we’re more aware of our rebooking rate as a crucial indicator of business performance and the easiest way to ensure we’ve got dollars coming in the future. It seems Australia didn’t quite catch onto this as quickly and five years ago had an average rebooking rate of 33 percent. Fast forward to 2016 and they’re now sitting at 42 percent. Rebooking percentages in New Zealand and Australia have both increased by 9 percent - it’ll be interesting to see if they can catch up to us!

Trends are cyclic. And when it comes to business some have shaped the past and the future. Tom Murphy, CEO of Kitomba shares his insights.

Online Booking The ability to book online has seriously changed the behaviour of clients. In New Zealand, 10 percent of all bookings are now made via Online Booking. That’s ahead of Australia who are sitting at 9% of bookings, but interestingly, just behind the UK which experiences 12% of bookings taken via Online Booking. This isn’t exactly surprising when this feature provides your clients with the convenience and flexibility they need to book with you when it suits them, frees up your phone and boosts client happiness!

Colour trend Our data shows that the average number of colour clients has remained the same. What’s interesting is that the average client colour spend has increased over the same period by 12.5 percent - an increase from $96 to $108. There could be a number of reasons for this. A huge

rise in colour trends, new products and an increase in value perceived by clients for colour services, therefore a willingness to pay more.

Revenue is trending up Revenue for services is on a strong upward trend. Clients are spending more overall, not just on colour, with the industry experiencing a 15 percent increase in average client spend over the past five years. Year on year, that’s an average increase of 2.8 percent and with inflation increasing just 1 percent each year, salons should have noticed a healthy revenue increase. If you’re not, you need to ask yourself if your prices are right. Perhaps it’s time for an increase.

Is there an opportunity? The New Zealand Economy According to Westpac-McDermott Miller, consumer confidence has majorly increased since the end of 2016 in New Zealand. Households are in a better financial situation increasing disposable income. A healthy economy is vital to the willingness of clients to spend more with your business.

Get Online Booking If you don’t have Online Booking, you need to now! Provide your clients with the flexibility and convenience of booking whenever it suits them, increase your bookings and make more money. We’ve found that 1 in 10 appointments are cancelled or end as a no-show, so reduce these by taking a deposit when your clients make an appointment via Online Booking.

We can change the numbers It’s clear we have the ability to change the numbers! Just look at the incredible increase in rebooking rates over the past five years. We can tell you that didn’t “just

happen”; it’s because there has been a real focus on the importance of this number.

Sell more Ensuring you continue to increase prices year-on-year is really important, particularly when you see that it has delivered a 15 percent increase in revenue over the last 5 years. Regular price reviews are a great idea. But what else can you do to sell more? Sell more colours, sell more treatments? Yes, but the simplest way to sell more is to change your client revisit period. That’s right, simply focus on getting your clients to visit more regularly and you’ll be selling more services with ease!

Reduce your client revisit period and make $46,000 Changing your client revisit period can have a huge impact on your business. Across the New Zealand salons we analysed, we found on average they completed 95 appointments a week and the average client revisit period is 46 days (6 weeks, 4 days). If a salon made it their mission to reduce their revisit period back down to 42 days (6 weeks), they would have the ability to increase their client visits by 9 appointments each week. Based on an average client spend of $99, that’s an extra $900 per week, or $46,000 per year! So run your reports, take a look at the numbers and set a new revisit period goal. If your software doesn’t report on client revisit period, then get software that does (like Kitomba). Then get your team involved, explain why it’s important and how you’re going to reduce your client revisit period. Set a weekly meeting to determine how you’re tracking, create a competition between your stylists or treat them to something if they hit your target - whatever it takes to reduce your client revisit rate and increase your revenue.

There is something very satisfying about giving back, a sentiment that the team at d&m Hair Design are embracing with an up and coming charity auction. Trudi Brewer talks to stylist Danny Pato about his latest project.

FALLEN Celebrating ten years in business often involves drinking copious amounts of champagne and lots of self-adoration not for the team at d&m Hair Design. This year, they are looking to share their success with others in need. What started as a small hair salon in Ponsonby 10 years ago, d&m Hair Design is now one of Auckland’s most luxurious, cutting-edge hair salons. With a staff of 11, a celebrity clientele, and stints working backstage at fashion weeks across the globe, the team have also celebrated success with some prestigious awards, including the current accolade held by Pato of Hair Expo NZ Hairdresser of the Year 2016. Over this past decade, the team have created an impressive collection of images by the late fashion photographer Craig Owen, and photographer Mara Sommer, which they have printed and framed with the support of PCL Imaging and plan to sell to raise money for charity, KidsCan. It was after becoming involved with KidsCan over a year ago that owners Pato, Michael Sisaengrath, and the d&m team felt deeply affected by the support so many young kids in New Zealand need. “The d&m team members loved spending time with the kids. We speak about what a career in hairdressing has done for us, in the hope of inspiring some of them with career choices,” says Pato. “On our last trip to Rongomai Primary School, one boy was so adorable. When I asked him why he was so happy, he said it was because he could give the brush to his mum - that was truly touching. They were so grateful, happy and excited.” D&M is hosting the archive exhibition of their award-winning collections 30 March 2017. For details prior to the auction visit www.dandm.auction Images of the collections to be auctioned on the night.

Not all kids have the same start in life. The KidsCan Charitable Trust was founded on the belief that education equals opportunity, and every child, regardless of their social or economic background, should have an equal chance. An evaluation revealed that thousands of children were turning up to school cold, wet and hungry because their parents were struggling to make ends meet. Schools reported that this was having a significant impact on children’s learning ability, self-esteem and health. Children who miss out on the basics get sick more often, do worse at school and when they become adults, are more likely to be unemployed and have children who will also grow up in hardship. Today, KidsCan supports the education of over 137,000 children in 600 low-decile schools throughout New Zealand, providing food, shoes, socks, fleece-lined raincoats and basic hygiene items. These tangible programmes ensure disadvantaged children can get to school and walk through the school gates in a better position to learn. KidsCan currently has 17 schools on their waiting list right now – that’s 1490 kids still needing BY CR A support. D

Organic vs Natural E

ach year, the natural and organic sector within the hair and beauty industry continues to experience double-digit growth; in some categories it is outpacing mainstream beauty. Natural beauty is nothing new, but what has changed is how organic haircare is shedding its hippie, tree-hugging image and becoming mainstream. In the same way we are searching for organic food and organic lifestyle solutions, organic beauty solutions is climbing to the top of that list. What we put on our skin and in our hair is of great interest to women of all ages. To clarify this growing trend, Vicki King from New Zealand’s leading organic haircare company, Organic Colour Systems, sheds some light on what is on offer from Mother Nature.

THERE IS OFTEN CONFUSION AROUND NATURAL AND ORGANIC. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE? Natural ingredients are derived from a natural source, rather than manmade synthetic ingredients. But organic ingredients have to adhere to very strict standards regulated by a certification body that covers everything from the soil quality, to growing and handling restrictions, to working conditions and fair wages for employees, packaging and distribution. At Organic Colour Systems, we use UK Soil Association and Ecocert-

approved ingredients. And when organic is not available, we then source natural ingredients with fair trade agreements.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT TO YOUR HEALTH BY USING ORGANIC HAIRCARE? The immediate benefit is to the condition of the hair. Organic ingredients are more gentle and ultimately more effective than man-made alternatives. When you stop working with plastics and silicones and replace them with ingredients that feed and repair the delicate structure of the hair, you start seeing some pretty breathtaking changes. Then there are the overall health benefits you experience when you start eliminating the nasties from your everyday life. Stylists are exposed to harmful chemicals. We hear so many stories of ongoing conditions like headaches, sinus issues, and skin conditions all but clearing up when salons switch to using Organic Colour Systems. And that’s just the obvious stuff. The more we can limit our exposure to harmful chemicals and reduce our toxicity levels the better.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE BRANDS YOU CHOOSE ARE NATURAL OR ORGANIC? WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR AS A CONSUMER? Forget slogans; it’s easy to write slogans that grab people’s attention on a box. If you want organic, it’s the certification you need to verify. Look for ‘certified

The fastest growing category when it comes to haircare is naturals. But as Trudi Brewer discovers, there is also lots of confusion around what's on offer from Mother Nature. organic ingredients’ - they will be marked with a ** on the ingredients list - and the certification body will be named.

CAN PERMANENT HAIR COLOUR BE 100 PERCENT ORGANIC AND STILL BE EFFICACIOUS? Unfortunately not. At this stage, permanent colour can’t be 100 percent organic (unless it’s Henna powder, which has massive limitations) and any claim to the contrary is misleading. But Organic Colour Systems uses the highest percentage of certified organic ingredients in any permanent professional hair colour on the market - up to 65 percent organic and 95 percent natural.

CAN IT STILL COVER GREYS? Yes, we get 100 percent grey coverage with Organic Colour Systems. But experienced hairdressers understand there’s no such thing as a 100 percent natural permanent colour. Unfortunately, 100 percent grey coverage requires synthetic oxidative

are some pretty exciting innovations coming in this area.

WHAT ARE THE BUZZ INGREDIENTS IN NATURAL AND ORGANIC HAIRCARE RIGHT NOW?

MULTI-PURPOSE PRODUCTS, SHAMPOOS THAT TREAT THE SCALP AND STYLING PRODUCTS THAT HYDRATE THE HAIR, ARE THE LATEST BUZZ IN HAIRCARE. HOW DO NATURAL HAIR BRANDS COMPETE IN THIS AREA?

We’ve been adding quinoa to our products for years. Regarded as a super protein, it repairs the hair with amazing results. I suspect we’ll see a lot more quinoa in the hair industry moving forward.

Often synthetic ingredients are used for "quick fix" results, which sits outside our ethos. We believe in a long-term holistic approach repairing the hair to its natural strength then maintaining its integrity on all levels; colour, curl, straightening, care, and styling. You can do it; you just need to take the time to properly analyse the hair and have the right products at your disposal to repair and maintain it. But what you do find with natural products, which aren’t coating the hair and clogging up pores, is that common issues, like oil and dandruff, become very rare, so you do get multiple benefits.

whether you can do it organically, sustainably, ethically, and naturally.”

Argan oil is probably the best known and most widely used oil on the market, but there are also other fantastic oils that add moisture to the hair. Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Macadamia and Olive Oil are all great. A word of caution though for clients using coconut oil to make hair treatments at home - don’t!

WHAT IS YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR A SALON WANTING TO GO ORGANIC WITH THEIR HAIRCARE OFFERING? Fully commit to being organic. It is more than a marketing ploy; it’s a complete reset. Look at what you do every day and ask whether you can do it organically, sustainably, ethically, and naturally. Don’t fall for the 'quick fix' - quick fix and organic are not a good marriage. There are salon practice changes that come with moving to organics, but they do become positives in the long run. For more information on organic haircare visit: www.organiccoloursystems.com

n today’s hair-conscious world, different methods of hair straightening have been under fire. There’s been a tremendous amount of miss-information and most women think in order to achieve straight, beautiful hair you have to apply harsh chemicals for it to stay that way. Hair straighteners are not always the best choice either, some damage hair leaving it coarse, frizzy and dry. Argila Amazonia have released an all natural straightening system that produces effective and longlasting results, proven to enhance hair’s health.

WHAT IS ARGILA AMAZONIA? Argila Amazonia is a revolutionary hair-straightening system that provides lasting results. Using all-natural ingredients from the Amazon, such as White Argila Clay and Murumuru Oil, Argila Amazonia leaves hair smooth and silky soft. Pure, rare and rich in nutrients, White Argila Clay is the active ingredient in this groundbreaking system. It contains minerals that enhance hair’s health, such as magnesium, copper, zinc, aluminium, potassium and iron.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER METHODS OF HAIR STRAIGHTENING? Argilatherapy products work on a cellular level, allowing for deep restoration without damaging the core DNA or the hair. There are no chemicals or toxic agents that can damage hair’s health, as the products contain all-natural ingredients from the Amazon. Argila Amazonia formulations are free of formaldehyde, parabens, ammonia, dyes or any in the same vein.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST? The result lasts four months, depending on the type and the texture of the hair. Individual application ensures outstanding results on all hair types.

Murumuru Sealer Protection and Shine Spray.

WHAT ARE THE KEY NATURAL INGREDIENTS USED IN ARGILA AMAZONIA AND WHAT DO THEY DO? Amazonian White Argila Clay White Argila Clay comes from an island in Brazil called Marajo. The climate leads to the foundation of White Argila Clay, found exclusively on the island. The clay forms through the decomposition of certain rocks over a period of thousands of years. Its rich in minerals and metals such as titanium, magnesium, copper , zinc, aluminium, calcium, lithium, iron and trace elements. This one of a kind clay is extremely beneficial to human health.

Murumuru Oil Murumuru oil offers numerous advantages to our skin and hair as it’s a highly effective emollient and moisturiser. It helps hair recover from loss of moisture and regain its natural elasticity. Murumuru oil is a powerful, nourishing anti-frizz oil.

Argila Amazonia – Argilatherapy Argilatherapy’s principal function is to remove toxins and impurities, allowing the full reconstruction of hair follicles. The healing power of White Argila Clay combines with the rich fatty acids present in Murumuru Oil to create a powerful defence against the chemical and environmental damage on hair.

rown spots or black patches of discolouration on the skin appear due to abnormal production or metabolism of the skin pigment - melanin which create an uneven skin tone, described as pigmentation. Melanin is produced by cells in the skin called melanocytes and is what gives both our skin and hair its colour.

scarring. This is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), and can often be quite difficult to treat - although it can also often spontaneously improve over weeks or months.

TO GIVE YOU A QUICK BIOLOGY LESSON:

It’s important to be guided by an experienced Medical Skin Therapist or clinician when treating pigmentation, as they can more accurately assess the level and type of pigmentation, which will determine the best treatment solutions for you. The cornerstone of treating brown spots of any type is using a combination of Vitamin A and Vitamin C serums applied on a daily basis to help normalise both the melanin production and the DNA. Some will also benefit from using Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) serums, and tyrosinase-inhibitors (which work on suppressing the enzyme tyrosinase which is essential in the formation of melanin). Once the skin is prepped using skin care, IPL (intense pulsed light) can be used to break down the existing superficial pigmentation caused by photodamage. It's important to continue to use the vitamin A and C creams, as IPL only breaks down the pigment present in skin; it cannot normalise the DNA. Without normalising the DNA, the pigment will continue to build up in the skin again and will reoccur. Regular nutritional light ‘peels’ can be effective for helping with sun-damaged skin, although they need to be used with care in people suffering from melasma and PIH. The latest trends include medical needling or Ionto/sonophoresis (electrical current and ultrasound) combined with topical vitamins A, C and B3, plus antioxidants to improve the penetration of these highly effective products to the deepest levels where the pigmentation forms.

There are two types of melanin: Eumelanin, which is a dark brownish-black colour; and Phaeomelanin, which is a yellowish red. The different mixtures of the two melanin types give the wide variety of skin and hair colour. White hair or skin has no melanin, while redheads have smaller clusters of phaeomelanin, and dark skin has larger deposits of Eumelanin. Eumelanin is a strong free-radical scavenger and deactivates free radicals caused by UV damage. Phaeomelanin (the reddishbrown form) aggravates the effects of the sun, which is why redheads tend to be more sensitive to sun damage.

WHY DOES IT OCCUR?

WHAT ARE THE LATEST TRENDS TO ELIMINATE DARK SPOTS AND HOW CAN YOU PREVENT THEM FROM RETURNING?

The cornerstone of treating brown spots of any type is using a combination of vitamin A and vitamin C serums applied on a daily basis

Abnormal melanin production can occur as a result of sun damage (photo ageing), hormones, or trauma to the skin. When exposed to the sun’s UV rays, the melanin goes darker in an attempt to protect the skin cells’ DNA. This is commonly called a ‘tan’ but is an ineffective way to prevent sun damage, as the UV exposure creates more damage to the skin cells than what the melanin can prevent. With repeated sun damage over time, the DNA of the damaged cells become distorted, leading to abnormal pigmentation - brownish patches on the skin which can progress to ‘solar keratoses’ or ‘sun spots’, and could eventually lead to skin cancer. Hormones from pregnancy, the oral contraceptive, or some medical conditions can cause a distinctive ‘butterfly-shaped’ pigmentation on the cheeks and forehead called Melasma (or chloasma). This pigmentation sits more deeply on the skin than excess melanin from sun damage and is a lot harder to treat. Stopping the hormonal stimulation is usually the best way to treat this form of pigmentation, although it can take months to years to improve. If you have Asian, Maori or darker skin, you may have a tendency towards developing pigmentation after any trauma to the skin, even mild trauma like vigorous exfoliation, and commonly in association with acne or

WHAT’S NEXT WHEN IT COMES TO ACHIEVING SKIN CLARITY? Skin clarity is not just about improving the pigmentation in the skin; it’s also about improving skin luminosity and colour by enhancing blood flow, reducing pore size, and increasing the thickness and texture of skin. I believe the best treatment for improving overall skin clarity and texture is the Vampire Facial Plus - a groundbreaking treatment that combines needling, plus hydrating hyaluronic acid (HA), and PRP (the healing parts of your blood).

The A-class ingredient

Any beauty expert will tell you the “gold standard” anti-ageing ingredient is retinol. But wait, there is more. Trudi Brewer explains.

T

he number one age-eraser is still vitamin A, or as it's known in many other forms, retinol. From daytime use, to the perfect measured daily dose, here is why you need this A-list active in your daily skincare regime. If you're in your 30's and don't use a vitamin A-based skin cream, you're missing out on the chance to change the look and feel of your skin. Thanks to some new research and innovation right now this safe, serious age-eraser is having a revival.

RETINOL AND THE SUN Retinol used to be an ingredient used only at night - now you have the green light to use it during the day. Las Vegas-based plastic surgeon Goesel Anson, MD, believes that “we used to think that retinoids should be used only at night because they make skin more sensitive to the sun. Rather, the product or formulation itself was unstable in light, sun and air. Modern packaging today keeps the product more stable, so this is less of a concern today.” Washington-based dermatologist Sidney B. Smith, MD, says, “I have my patients use their retinol or retinoid in the morning with at least an SPF 30 sunscreen or at night with hyaluronic acid or a good moisturiser. Both options are effective.” However, all experts agree if you are using a retinol serum or day cream loaded with vitamin A, you must wear an SPF 30. Ohio-based Lu-Jean Feng, MD, says you absolutely must practice safe sun protocols whenever you use it. “I still recommend that if you are using a prescription retinol product, you only apply it at night.”

RETINOL COCKTAIL Combining antioxidants and vitamins is the best approach to giving skin the most potent cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients. Appearance medicine doctors are excited by the combination

of retinol and stem cells. “This combination allows a sensitive patient to experience the benefits of retinol while minimising irritation and inflammation.” For calming any flare-ups, plant-based topical ingredients from various sources are being used to combat sensitivity and irritation.

ENCAPSULATING RETINOL Advancement in how to protect retinol from degrading is one that has chemist and beauty companies pretty excited. Amandine Isnard, head of product development for EVE LOM, says the newest trend is getting the encapsulation of retinol. “This enables a safe, stable and targeted delivery and has been the most advanced innovation recently,” she explains. “You enclose the retinol molecules within a microscopic sphere to protect it from light, oxygen and other aggressors. This not only stabilises the retinol molecule and ensures its maximum potency, but it also facilitates a controlled delivery and drives the active ingredients deep beneath the skin.”

RETINOL CAN FIRM THE SKIN Once the skin has a regular diet of vitamin A derivatives such as retinol, retinoids and Retin-A, it can build elastin, which is the support network found deep in the dermis. New York dermatologist Dendy Engelman explains. "Retinoic acid is an effective cell-communicating ingredient that can connect to almost any skin cell receptor and tell it to behave like a younger skin cell. It also functions as an antioxidant that can interrupt the free-radical damage process that causes wrinkling and other signs of ageing." And once your skin has a regular diet of vitamin A, it has been shown to increase collagen production and fade brown spots from sun damage. Engelman says there is also emerging research pointing to its ability to build elastin.

1. Always apply retinol-based skincare on dry skin. If it is still wet, this can be the reason for flaking and sensitivity. 2. Introduce vitamin A products slowly, and always begin using them at night. “Start gradually, incorporating it into your evening regimen (sunlight deactivates retinoic acid so you can’t use it during the day) every other day. “This lets your skin gradually acclimate to the more potent level of the product,” says Engelman. “You can also mix it in with your usual moisturiser or facial oil to buffer the irritation (redness, flaking, etc.) that can often come along with using retinol.” 3. Always stop using retinol-based skin care two to five days before and after getting a wax. 4. Less is more - only ever use a pea-size amount for your full face and don’t forget to use retinol-based products on the tops of your hands, your neck and your chest area as well.

Retinol and retinoids contain a form of retinol in ester forms (vitamin A derivatives) like retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate and retinyl linoleate, names you typically see listed on the back of product bottles. All these derivatives must be converted into retinoic acid by the skin at a cellular level to get the maximum benefit. For most women, retinoids and retinol do the same thing, but results can vary depending on the strength and how long you use the product. Most readily available retinol-based products contain a very low dose of active vitamin A, from 0.5-2 percent. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons recommend prescription-based retinoids, such as Retin-A and Tretinoin, and experts agree, a little is better than no retinol in your skincare regime at all. With continued use, you will see an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture, and skin will be strengthened and defended against other environment assaults.

Runway to real way Another rich source of inspiration is the runway, where beauty trends take just weeks to translate into real looks on beauty counters. Here's our pick of Fall 2017 at New York Fashion Week. At Brandon Maxwell, makeup artist Tom Pecheux used jeweltone green and violet eye shadow pigments, then added definition with a black eye pencil, blending the two at the corner of the eye with a damp shadow brush. The pop of colour in the middle section of the lid was created with a dry fluffy brush to give a soft, winged shape. Pecheux said he wanted the eye makeup to look tough but to "have a flavour of colour that brings joy and happiness."

Pink We don't need to remind you how universally flattering pink can be on any skin tone and for every age. Autumn is a great time to wear a dewy, fresh, rosy glow on skin, specifically on cheeks and lips. So if you ever wanted an excuse to ditch brown as your makeup staple, the colour pink is a pretty good option this season.

Joyce Blok (1933 - 2016)

We honour the life of a true pioneer and visionary in the New Zealand beauty industry; celebrating the legacy of Joyce Blok. FRESH START When Joyce Blok, a Dutch aesthetician and European trained and qualified beauty therapist migrated to New Zealand with her husband and family at the end of the ‘60s, she never could have realised what an impact she would have on the establishment of the beauty therapy industry and profession in New Zealand. Joyce and her masseur & handyman husband Neil opened one of the country’s first professional clinics in Auckland. Soon word of mouth spread and the Blok’s were often completely booked out for weeks at a time. Joyce and Neil had well and truly sparked an interest in the trade, and recognised an opportunity for a beauty therapy school in the country.

MAKING A MARK In early 1973 they decided to meet the needs of a growing demand and took up the challenge to set up the very first fully fledged professional beauty therapy training school, with Joyce as principal and director.

Fortunately for the future of the profession and industry here, Joyce was determined to provide training comparable with reputable schools in Europe. Subsequently electrolysis, using the blend method developed by US pioneer Arthur Hinkel, was added to the training available. This became Neil Blok’s passion and his research and dedication led the way for the superior blend method long before many overseas countries. It’s safe to say that many of this country’s most successful owners of beauty therapy clinics came through the Joyce Blok School.

NEW LOCATION, NEW BEGINNINGS After a shift to Henderson, and to the affectionately named “Yellow House”, Joyce’s next project was fast approaching. With a need of new products and equipment, the first major obstacle was the necessity of an import license. This became difficult to get so with Joyce’s

Dutch determination and Neil’s skill with his hands, between them they came up with a solution. A story so familiar in beauty and fashion it’s almost a cliché but that’s exactly what Joyce achieved – if you can’t find it, create it, and thus Joyce Blok Skin Care was born. Working with some of Europe’s leading suppliers of natural skin care ingredients such as Carl Richter of Germany, her first products were for her students and clients only, but by 1979 the products went national, and were made available to all trained therapists. In 1986 after nearly 20 years of working seven days a week, Joyce and Neil decided to sell their business to Self Care Group, and retire, moving to sunny Queensland and then on to tropical Bali. A well-deserved break for a pair of true entrepreneurs and pioneers of the New Zealand beauty industry. Self Care Group continued to honour Joyce and Neils’ dream and the brand celebrates 45 years as industry leaders next year. Her legacy is amazing.

“Many of this country’s most successful owners of beauty therapy clinics came through the Joyce Blok School.”

The future of Joyce Blok

“The Joyce Blok brand has enabled Beauty Therapists in the industry to both peform treatments and retail a New Zealand brand. Being able to offer professional skincare made in NZ is a huge draw card and very appealing to clients who are tuned in to NZ made.” - Joanne Watson, co-owner of Urban Sanctuary in Wellington and stockist of Joyce Blok since 1991. “There is something special about how the range is for the NZ climate and that legacy for beauty therapists has been left by her for future generations to maintain and develop.” - Toni Christensen, owner of Indulge Beauty Therapy in Invercargill and winner of Joyce Blok’s Salon of the Year 2014. “Joyce & Neil Blok were instrumental in creating one of the first natural ranges in the country, and really nailing the essence of New Zealand by giving us our very own home-grown product. What I love most is that Joyce Blok products are affordable enough for people, and you always get the results that we are looking for.” - Lynette Chambers, owner of Monterrey Beauty Therapy Boutique in Nelson and stockist of Joyce Blok Professional Skin Care for the past 27 years.

Beauty | PROFILE

What are the finishing touches that make a spa special? I think it is first and foremost cleanliness. It may sound obvious, but it still surprises me how many spas I go to where the owner may not look in the same areas that the guests such as the face cradle on the spa bed, the floor and the ceiling. These are details that need to be continually reviewed and maintained. So cleanliness is number one. Next, it is all the little things that “add value” to the guest experience. The beautiful herbal tea selection, toiletries in the bathroom, good quality hairdryer, etc. These things help the guest to feel like they can completely switch off and their every need is considered.

What are the seasonal essentials that will help create that feeling of wellbeing for staff? Here are our top three tips to share with your staff and clients. 1 Eat your autumn colours. Autumn evokes warmth and rich earthy tones; think deep forest greens, golden yellows and brilliant burnt oranges. A key indicator of the nutritional value of fruit and vegetables are their colour and the more vibrant the colour, the better they are for your immune system. Think of the colour orange, bursting with vitamin C.

2 Boost your immune system With the changing season, now is the perfect time to review your diet and boost your immunity. Some instant immune boosters include: drinking plenty of fresh water, eating plenty of nutritious whole foods and adding garlic, lysine, probiotics, Vitamin B & C, zinc, propolis and Manuka honey to your daily intake.

3 Exfoliate and hydrate Summer sun worshipping and salt water can leave skin parched, so now is the time to buff and exfoliate.

Create your own ‘me moment’ at home by dedicating a night to replenish your skin with our famous ASPAR Wattleseed & Walnut Exfoliating Cream, or you could book in to experience the Kiyta Karnu ritual for the ultimate double exfoliation and hydration.

What are you top three best service tips? Kindness – be one step ahead of your

guest and ask yourself “how can I make this experience extraordinary”?

Mindfulness – be present, it is so easy to be distracted in the world we live in. Look your guest in the eye and show that you are here right now with them.

Organised

– a smooth guest experience comes with plenty of valuable organisation. Make the time to prioritise your tasks and be ready, clear and organised.

As a business owner, how can you get that well deserved time out? Prioritising a trip to an annual retreat is an investment in the most important asset- you. By taking time out and going on retreat once a year you put a large deposit in your “health” bank account as you top up the fuel in your tank. Having an ongoing maintenance program of wellness activities like a weekend getaway or spa treatment are like regular deposits into your “health” bank account and are a way to revive between yearly retreats. Going away on retreats annually is incredibly important because in the wellness industry we see people become run down, and all too often their health takes second priority. Taking time out of your schedule whether for a weekend or a week, is the perfect pledge to your health and wellness. Personally, I book in annually to Kamalaya Health Retreat in Koh Samui for a week to recharge and replenish, an investment in her “health” bank account. Book some time out in your diary and schedule your “retreat time”.

Rosy cheeks are usually a sign of a healthy glow; a much sought-after look that we often achieve with the help of our favourite blush. But on the flip side, for many, it’s a sign of irritation, flakiness and tenderness. So what exactly are we dealing with when it comes to sensitive skin? “True sensitive skins are that way genetically and represent a much smaller percentage of the population than those whose skin is sensitised due to environmental factors, skin care nasties, such as fragrance, and even systemic immune reactions,” explains Kelly Iles, owner of Mount Skin and Body in Mount Maunganui. According to Iles, sensitive skin can be characterised by being reactive, often red or inflamed, sensitive to heat and sometimes itchy and uncomfortable.

WHY IS IT ON THE RISE? What we do know for sure is that sensitive skin is on the rise. It is estimated that up to 50 percent of women perceive their skin to be sensitive. There are several reasons for this, including a rise in pollution levels. For example, 36 percent of the Chinese population has declared themselves as sensitive, which may in fact be attributed to the high level of pollution in this region. Lifestyle could well be another factor, with air-conditioned offices becoming more and more the norm, or at the other end of the scale, the harshness of the

sun, especially in New Zealand.

HOW TO TREAT IT? According to Iles, both sensitive and sensitised skins are treated similarly. The best way is through education and working with the skin gently and holistically. “We love to educate our clients about the benefits of eating foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids, especially important for those with dry or sensitive/sensitised skin. Drinking a lot of water to flush toxins and avoiding alcohol and spicy food is also really beneficial for those who deal with redness, flushing and inflammation on their skin” explains Iles.

2

WHAT SKINCARE DO YOU RECOMMEND? Don't overdo it. From using a scrub every day to over-stripping the skin with a harsh toner, skincare should be used in moderation. “Topically, we would use the Decléor Harmonie Calm range which hydrates parched skin, calms reactive or inflamed skin, strengthens delicate skin and protects from future damage. My personal favourite is the Rose D’orient Night Balm; Decléor balms are my go-to when treating any skin type or condition. They work, are luxurious and yet effective in getting results,” says Iles. As always, it’s best to see your therapist for tailored treatments and products.

SENSITIVE SKIN VS ROSACEA There are some exceptions, so it’s important to note the difference between sensitive skin and another common skin condition; rosacea. Rosacea (as lovely as words that start with rose are) unfortunately has more to do with the colour of a rose than the symbolism of one. Symptoms usually include: • Flushing and blushing • Persistent redness/broken capillaries

• Acne-like rash of bumps and pimples • Localised facial swelling • Skin sensitivity As you’ve probably judged from the list above, the main difference is the fact that rosacea is characterised by blood vessels that swell and produce redness at the slightest agitation, including cold, heat, wind or stress, and usually develops after the age of 30.

urning forty in 1977 would have been remarkably different than turning forty in 2017. I have a fascination and rather romantic view of the ‘70s which most of my peers are somewhat bemused by. I honestly believe a 40th birthday bash in 1977 would have been fabulous. Being a fullyfledged ‘80s girl in theory I should be longing for huge hair and lip gloss that constantly slides across my face. Does anyone else remember the roller ball strawberry lip gloss of the ‘80s? Thicker than a glue stick with the ability to adhere to absolutely everything except your lips. Those were the days – or were they? In comparison the ‘70s introduced a flower power ethos in huge contrast to the techno age around the corner. As we look to the future, the ‘70s ‘farm fresh beauty’ is the foundation of forecasted growth. Ignorance was bliss in 1977 as the long term perils of sun damage, smoking, staying out late and generally misbehaving were completely unknown. Now not only beauty professionals but anyone old enough to speak can tell you the dangers of all of the above – which is a good thing of course. How more educated will we be in another 40 years and will the 70’s be viewed as the peak of our carefree days? We now have a passion for ingesting coconut oil rather than applying it liberally to make us tan quickly. Perhaps we will be eating SPF in less than 40 years rather than slip, slop, slap. A thought that crossed my mind is what would

Any beauty professional could easily list 100 but the fundamentals can be edited down to a very accessible seven: And what exactly would I expect to be embracing for my skin at 80? All research points to premium brands continuing to grow the skin care modalities and subsequent sales with a strong focus on natural based products. The asianification (yes this is a term) of our industry means that India, Indonesia and China are predicted as being the leaders in premium natural skin care. Indonesia is forecasted to outspend the US in skin care purchases by 2019. Animal testing regulations will have a huge impact on the next generation of skin care users and formulators. New technology with advanced tools, devices and apps will mean accurate skin diagnosis will literally be in the palm of everyone’s hands. Here’s a quick summary for what is just around the corner:

“Perhaps we will be eating SPF in less than 40 years rather than slip, slop, slap.”

Great skin secrets of yesterday and today • Drink plenty of water • Sleep more • Laugh as often as you can and to hell with the lines • Exfoliate regularly but don’t be too tough on your skin (or yourself) • Use night cream every night • SPF always • Look after your teeth as well as your skin

Back to the future trends • Water will be a key ingredient moving forward as it becomes more scarce globally • Organic and probiotic based skin care will continue to grow and may dominate sooner than we think • ‘Drinking dirt’ or ingesting bacteria to get your skin in check is forecasted as phase two in probiotic skin care trends • Soap cleansers – yes that’s right soap cleansers – and facial creams will be back following the ‘Everything old will be new’ concept • 3D printing will have revolutionised manufacturing and bespoke skin care will be mainstream • Devices will ensure skin care diagnosis is literally in the hands of the consumers • Animal testing regulations will see a huge change in how we develop products Whatever is ‘in’ or ‘out’ over the next 40 years you can be certain of one thing – I have every intention of enjoying being part of it. Happy 40th Headway – be a bit naughty for your birthday…

WHAT LIES BENEATH THE JOURNEY OF SKIN FLUORESCENCE By MARGARET WALSH

T

oday, clients seeking professional skincare are more knowledgeable and have higher expectations of skin treatments and care products than ever before. Clients demand results-based treatments and skincare regimes and expect results to be documented and communicated. Since the invention of the original Wood’s Lamp by Robert William Wood in 1903, skin diagnosis based upon the fluorescence behaviour of skin tissue has been well accepted in dermatology and cosmetic skin care for almost 105 years, but has hardly changed. The slightly surreal glowing appearance of foliage in his photographs has been labelled the “Wood Effect”. Recently, new technology has been developed which brings this “Wood Effect” and Woods Lamp up to date and can be used in conjunction with today’s mobile computer technology, such as Smartphones and tablets. The latest technology today has five light modes available for skin diagnosis in the modern world of skin fluorescence. 1. Daylight 2. True UV 3. Woods 4. Cross–Polarized 5. Parallel-Polarized (unique to the Observ® Skin Diagnostic Device) Skin diagnostic devices are of huge importance in 2017 for skin care professionals who are serious about providing corrective skin care practices in their salons, spas and clinics. One cannot measure progress without knowing what the starting point is. As practicing beauty therapists we know comprehensive Advanced Skin Analysis, including the use of diagnostic equipment, is a professional must. Clients are expecting education and evidencebased results.The use of diagnostic equipment sets a professional standard; clients clearly understand that results are the aim, and that they are expected to fulfill their part of the treatment plan. While diagnostic equipment has become much more affordable and available to the beauty therapy/spa industry, I understand

that for some it must still be budgeted for. No documentation is however, not acceptable, because in the modern world, everyone has the capability to take baseline /clinical photos in your pocket! A Smartphone is the minimum requirement and if nothing else, you should at least be documenting with that. A simple ruler is a fantastic tool to measure anomalies such as solar lentigenes, and you can also document what you see on a simple piece of paper; I still encourage the last point even with advanced technology available. Most importantly, learn what this means for your business in the future. Now let us consider the value of skin analysis and technological advancements from a client/patients’ point of view Client question: What are the long-term benefits of using such technology? Answer: Advanced Skin Analysis allows us, dermal and beauty therapists, to evaluate skin from the epidermal/dermal junction upwards and to provide proof, via clinical photos, of the potential concerns before they become visible on the skin’s surface. In the long term, this means that clients can choose to use products or undergo treatments in-clinic that prevent these concerns becoming reality. This will assist clients in maintaining and improving the condition of their skin for years to come. Why allow your clients to waste time and money on products and treatments that will not fix their skin? Do offer every client a skin analysis and combine it with a skin analysis device. The clinical visuals allow you to see; not just what is on the visible surface of their skin, but what lies beneath. Using UV and cross-polarized light, latest technology can reveal the colour, tone, texture, secretions and sun damage on your client/patients’ skin. We all are aware of the essential benefits of a thorough one hour skin consultation. Let us refresh our memories as to the

professional value of an advanced skin analysis. Imagine the information you will have at your fingertips, if you combine the consultation with the data gleaned from the latest OBSERV Technology. Advanced Skin Analysis will determine the client/patient’s: • Genetic diagnosis • Client’s work/play lifestyle • Where they spent the first 20 years of their life • General health and wellbeing • Medical conditions/medicines • Possible allergies • Vitamin supplements • Nutritional choices • Current retail home care and beauty therapy treatments • Home care and beauty therapy treatment history • The “where to now?” plan for your client • Their relationship with the sun – are they a “sun bunny?” • Attitude to becoming a compliant client with the homecare and suggested lifestyle needs. During a Skin Analysis Appointment the beauty therapist: - Will gather data and photograph most useful aspects of the epidermis: melanin, extra vascular matting, oxidative stress, skin texture and sebum (lipid) levels. - Will gather data on the client’s genetic history, nutrition and lifestyle, medical, and previous beauty therapy treatment history. - Will photo-document the client’s current skin situation using fluorescence and polarized diagnostic imaging equipment - including a UV photo documentation of sub-surface skin conditions. This data will allow the therapist to measure accurately the clients’ progression and results throughout the ensuing in-salon programmes. - Will establish the cause of the client’s skin concern in their consultation, and then relate the cause to the cells and systems that have been affected. - Will establish the basic majority skin type and present the client with the home care protocols necessary to maintain healthy skin. - Will establish the client’s sun sensitivity. This will allow understanding of the skin’s susceptibility to pigmentation, and develop guidelines for protecting the skin. - Will prescribe a 6-12 month treatment program to improve all clients skin. By combining with OBSERV data and

your consultation skills you will develop a customized skin health program based on this information. It will include a home skin care regimen, salon treatments with nutritional and lifestyle choices best suited to the skin’s particular needs. Add in a 3 month follow-up skin analysis using the same methodology and you will be professionally “beaming” as you evaluate the effectiveness of the skin care protocol you recommended to the client. Results driven regimes ensure a win-win outcome for both parties. Wanting a skin diagnostic device that marries with a bespoke skin analysis?

At OBSERV we were so excited to announce that DERMASCOPE USA Industry readers chose the official winner – OBSERV! To be “Winner of the “Best of the Best “Diagnostic Tool in 2016!” And if your equipment is “The Best of the Best” your clients will happily provide a testimonial to the fact. Enjoy this testimonial from Robyn McAlpine of www.lasereffect.com.au “I have been using the OBSERV 520 in my skin therapy clinic for coming up to two years and can no longer remember what our skin consultations were like prior to this. It has become an invaluable tool in educating our clients about their skin. Not only does it give us as therapists an insight into underlying skin conditions and allow us to read deeper into our client’s skin, but it also provides a visual for our clients helping them to see what we see. A client who is armed with the knowledge of where their skin is heading is a client who can make an informed decision about their skin journey. My team are exceptional skin therapists, and the OBSERV 520 gives them an ever greater understanding of our client’s needs. Detailed and well recorded before and after images help to keep us accountable and make sure that we are constantly delivering a high level of skin care. Progress cannot be denied when you have such consistent images from treatment to treatment.”

Clean eating Forget trends and fad diets, clean eating is a lifestyle choice and one that will benefit your health. Liz Lamb investigates?

A

utumn is always a reset month. After the summer festivities have ended, and before we settle into winter hibernation, the next few months are a good time to establish a routine and focus on replenishing our bodies from the inside out. Forget about the ‘super foods’ fad of the summer or the idea of getting on the bandwagon of juice cleansing; clean eating is a lifestyle choice and it’s here to stay.

WHAT IS CLEAN EATING? It’s less about the particular food or habit, and more about an approach to healthy eating, which is where its value lies. Once you strip back your food and let it speak for itself, it will change the way you prepare food and enjoy it. Don’t cover your food with artificial dressings or flavouring; use a simple herb rub to marinate your meat, or create a dressing for your salad with pure olive oil, balsamic and a squeeze of lemon. Try steaming or blanching your vegetables, which locks in the nutrients and is quick and easy. Most of all, let the ingredients create the flavour and sit back and enjoy the meal that you have prepared. Too often (myself included) we focus on something else (i.e. social media) when we sit down to eat a meal, and before we know it, the meal is gone!

HOW DOES IT BENEFIT THE BODY? Clean eating allows your body to absorb the nutrients from your meal just the way nature intended it. One of my favourite autumn recipes is a roast vegetable salad, and now is the perfect time, as seasonal root vegetables

are starting to come into stores. Beetroot and pumpkin are a brilliant combination, tossed with a little olive oil and roasted until tender in an oven. Mix in some roasted sunflower or pumpkin seeds paired with balsamic mustard vinaigrette. It’s a perfect side to any meal, or a take to work for lunch. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 44
