pring is finally here and it couldn’t have come any sooner for me. There’s nothing like a change in season (and weather) to encourage a new outlook for mind, body, soul…and wardrobe! What better way to celebrate than to indulge in a few pieces of spring fashion and start prepping skin and body for the glorious summer months ahead. As spring is also the perfect time for a skin and makeup overhaul, we’ve included all the latest innovations from the beauty industry amongst our pages, along with some top tips from our favourite skincare, tanning and makeup experts. With talent as our spring issue theme, this edition is jam-packed with gorgeous creative work by local and international artists, interviews with award-winners, leading industry experts and educators, up-and-coming hairdressers, renowned colourists, and those still in training…just waiting to make their mark on the industry. It has been such a joy putting together a magazine filled with people so passionate and excited about what they do. Colour, in all shades of the rainbow, is packing a punch this season, with hair colour being touted as ‘the new makeup’, giving chameleons the opportunity to customise and consistently switch up their look. There’s no shortage of inspiration, thanks to the trends coming through from the international runways, and the new looks gracing our celebrity muses. Professional colour brands have pre-empted this trend and have created some amazing technological advancements to allow the industry to keep pace. However, it won’t all be smooth-sailing. In ‘To Dye For’ (page 68) session styling guru Richard Kavanagh discusses the pros and cons that go along with client demands for this new trend. Lastly, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who contributed to this issue and all those who continue to inspire and support us. This is my second issue back after a year’s leave and I’m thrilled to be back working in this crazy, fun, fabulous, colourful industry. Enjoy ‘The Talent Issue’ and see you in summer.

CHARMAINE GUEST Content Editor, Writer & Advertising Exec “I can safely say Charmaine is Headway Magazine. She has been involved in sales and editorial since January 2001 and is enormously passionate about the magazine and all the industries it covers. She loves what she does, the people she works with, is a perfectionist and this shows because she is so damn good at what she does. She is a pleasure to work with”. My favourite spring scent is… Yves St Laurent Parisienne, which is my signature perfume, but I’m currently mixing it up with Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne and a divine Balenciaga body lotion. @OWNDESIGN


“This talent has been with us for 18 months but she is so much a part of the family that we feel it has been a lot longer. Calm, positive and currently building an amazing business herself, we are very lucky to have Liv as part of the team.”

My inspiration is from... Travel. Namely, wanderlust with a side of Instagram, and a pinch of Pinterest.

SHARLEEN SINGH Writer & Digital Co-ordinator “Shar came to Headway with a wealth of editing and writing experience for someone so young. She has been happily involved in many aspects of Headway and is known to attend the odd glamourous function and steal the show! Talented and dedicated, she also has a very cheeky sense of humour which we love.” Are

you a minimalist or a maximalist? Maximalist for sure. Organised clutter features in all aspects of my life.


As we celebrate some outstanding talent this issue, we thought you might like to get to know the talent at Headway a little. In case we haven’t already met, this is us in the words of our publisher Anne O’Brien


“Our newbie Skye is a bundle of energy and kicks off her digital contributions this issue in the NZFW online insert. We could not have chosen a better person to represent us than this uber-talented bundle of inspiration. My favourite talent is.... One of my best friends, Holly Burgess, who is an incredible fashion photographer with a wicked eye.

VANESSA NARAN Senior Designer “With such a huge bag of design tricks, this woman is the key to just how stunning our beauty pages are. Patient, optimistic and tireless, she remains steady through to the final days of design. She is a talented artist as well, which she keeps very private…whoops”. A fun fact about yourself… I illustrate/paint in my free time and play guitar.

One in two women will suffer some degree of hair thinning or hair loss by the age of 50. Their hairdresser is likely to be one of the first to notice. Now you can be part of the solution with our revolutionary new system.

Five minutes with our two talented and much-loved New Zealand Hairdressers of the Year 2017 – Danny Pato and Michael Beel

DANNY PATO FROM D&M Hair Expo New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year Interviewed by Michael Beel

What made you get into hairdressing? I grew up with one mother, two nanas, five sisters, five female cousins and six aunties, so I decided to pick up the scissors at a young age!

Where do you draw your inspiration from? I get inspiration from everywhere: from architecture, nature, popculture, film, music and all forms of art; and Google. Who do you think has the best social media account that you stalk? You babe. Plus Eugene Souleiman, Angelo Seminara and Nicolas Jurnjack.

Favourite website for wigs and accessories? I’m a wig hoarder! I usually buy them when I travel overseas, as I like seeing and feeling the wig in person before I buy it.

Stranded on a desert island...3 must-haves? My husband, water and sunscreen.

If you won Lotto, what would you buy or do that was reckless/self-indulgent? I’d throw a massive party on a boat in Mykonos.

One piece of advice that you would give to the youth of our industry? It takes passion, focus and consistency to get there. If you put in the hard yards, you’ll be rewarded with a career where you get to express your creativity and meet so many incredible people.

Favourite international and local designers? Internationally, I love Japanese designers: Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. Locally, I love so many…World, Zambesi, Christopher Duncan and Thyen from Tür. Who is your dream celebrity client? Tilda Swinton. 28 HEADWAY.NET.NZ


Best piece of advice you’ve received in terms of hairdressing? Learning never stops.




MICHAEL BEEL INDUSTRY NZ Hairdresser of the Year Interviewed by Danny Pato

How would you describe yourself in 5 words? Approachable, loyal, strong-willed, funny and a big bear! What would be your dream project? A beauty shoot published in Vogue. It’s the fashion “Bible” and for a farming lad from Otago to make it into Vogue, would be this country boy’s dream come true. What was the last picture you took on your phone? A photo of a wig that I’m conceptualising for a show at NZFW, for the designer World. I adore their passion for hair and makeup, which allows us creatives to really push outside of our comfort zones and play!

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? This is gonna sound corny but my job. I adore my crazy team and I love making people feel better about themselves every single day. My career has taken me all around the world and given me some experiences that money cannot buy. For that, I’m so grateful!

What would be your perfect day? Allowing my body to wake up when it wants to. Brunch with my man, do a little photo shoot or clients, then perhaps a glass of Champagne on my sun-drenched deck at home with a cheese platter and family and friends. Bliss!

What were your best and worst subjects at school? Worst subject was maths; still is and I’m crap with numbers. My best subject was history. I love history and that’s probably why I love a good costume drama on TV. Who’s your celebrity pass card? Ricky Martin. I have loved him ever since “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and I actually used to have a life-size cardboard cut-out of him in my flat years ago given to me by a friend. Now I stalk him on Instagram! Ricky, if you ever see this interview, I’m here and ready to look after you when you need me!

Which film could you watch over and over? Steel Magnolias. Dolly Parton owns a hair salon and is the campest thing ever, and the southern American banter is amazing. The funeral scene with Sally Field makes me cry then laugh every single time I watch it...and I’ve watched that movie like 30 times!

“I adore my crazy team, and I love making people feel better about themselves every single day.”

What’s the worst purchase you’ve ever made? I’ve made so many last-minute purchases that I’ve regretted straight away. However, I came across a photo of me 20 years ago in a mustard shirt with holographic MC Hammer pants, so officially I feel that can take the award. Hence why I live in black now; clearly I can’t deal with colour!

What’s top of your bucket list? A visit to Italy and Greece. I’ve never been, and as I’m a history buff, going to see where modern civilisation started would be amazing. And let’s not forget the FOOD! And looking at the beautiful men! HEADWAY.NET.NZ 29

Denis’ most requested client looks currently are those he created for Mila Kunis, Brie Larson and Ashlee Simpson. Cara Delevingne’s platinum locks are also in demand.

A-List Colour Owner of LA’s Mare salon, Joico spokesperson, and celebrity colourist, Denis De Souza, talks colour trends, education, and how he became the ‘go-to’ colourist for some of Hollywood’s hottest stars


What’s trending in hair colour right now in LA?  Platinum has become a summer must, but sombre and babylights still get the most requests. It's just so easy to maintain and women in LA want to have that beautiful, beachy, yet effortless look. Which celebrity looks are you getting the most requests for? Ashlee Simpson's, Mila Kunis’ babylights and Brie Larson’s sombre (all created by me). Plus, Cara Delevingne on the platinum side.

How did you become known as a ‘celebrity’colourist? It began 8 years ago when I was fortunate enough to work with Rachel Bilson. She’s a beautiful girl with naturally dark brown hair and she wanted to go a lot lighter. She allowed me to do whatever I wanted and I remember brightening her ends a lot. Once she left the salon and the paparazzi photographed her with dark roots and brighter ends, the world went bananas for this new look; beauty editors started calling the new look “ombre”. My career went from 0 to 100 in a day! From the following day, the only thing I heard was, “I want the Rachel Bilson colour’. That lasted for about three years!

Which celebrities do you think are always at the forefront in terms of hair colour? Mila Kunis, Emma Stone and Gisele Bundchen. There is so much education for free now from many different artists. Joico, for example, release a multitude of online, step-by-step tutorials each year, available to everyone. Watch everything, find different artists, suck it all in, but remember to filter what you’ve learned and add your own spin to it. This is what will make you stand out. Remain humble, grounded and be nice to everyone. We work in a customer service industry; clients must always feel special. It takes a long time to build your reputation but it's very easy to lose it.

As a spokesperson for Joico, what do you love most about the brand? I love the sense of family. I love seeing the production team, the PR/marketing teams in the US, and abroad when I travel to introduce a new product to another market. I've always felt like part of something and made great friends throughout the four years I've been with Joico.

What’s one of your favourite Joico colour recipes? I have many; I create them and I love to share them with the world. They are all on Joico's YouTube channel and websites.

Best tips for success? Stay humble, focused, motivated and relevant. Always bring a smile to work; clients want to have fun and forget about their lives when they are in the salon. We are the entertainers, the therapists, and like it or not, their servers. Serve them well, make them feel good inside out and you will have your client for life. Word-of-mouth is the best advertisement that exists. 30 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

MODERN HAVEN This beautifully chic, awardwinning Sydney salon, offers premium service in bespoke surrounds


ounded in 1981 and winner of the Hair Expo 2017 Best Salon Design Award, Salon Kiin is a space to unwind, inspire, and connect. Director Maria Unali shares with us her inspiration behind this lifestyle destination.

Why did you choose this location? We were previously situated in a local shopping centre with no natural light, and our operating hours were determined by centre management. When a space became available on the high street in Penrith, the opportunity presented itself to transform our salon into a complete lifestyle destination, where clients and employees could connect in a beautiful, sustainable space. The new location was accessible to our existing client base, but would allow us to reach more people in the greater west community.

What was the inspiration behind your fit-out? We wanted the overall look and feel to be fresh and modern, with plenty of natural light and greenery. We created a mood board on Pinterest, adding images of places and spaces that inspired us. After discovering Sydney interior designers We Are Triibe on Instagram, I knew they were the right team to bring our vision to life. Their aesthetic was exactly what we aspired Salon Kiin to be - Scandinavian minimalist, with a subtle Palm Springs vibe. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 33

What do you want clients to leave thinking and feeling? Of course we want our clients to leave feeling beautiful, but equally important, we want them to feel as though they’re visiting friends or family when they return. As the name Kiin suggests, we want to create relationships with our guests that go beyond client and stylist. Salon Kiin is a space where they can unwind or recharge, switch off or reconnect. Beautiful hair is a bonus.

Creative Director for Toni&Guy New Zealand, Bronwyn Illingworth-Kronfeld, tells us why Wella is a great fit for her team and the products and colours she’s loving right now

support to our team; they listen, they care and help us in our careers by providing opportunities to grow and learn. Being part of the Wella family also means you have access to Wella Professionals’ comprehensive colour portfolio, which offers endless possibilities for colourists to express their imagination. It provides everything a colourist needs to create some magic.

How did you know Wella was a great fit for you? The Wella products and business support has complemented the Toni&Guy business in New Zealand and given us the confidence to push our creative boundaries. Our latest success story is Cinnamon Scholes, awarded the title of New Zealand Colourist of The Year 2017, and Anna Bell and James Ross, who are finalists for Wella Trend Vision 2017. These opportunities assure me that Wella is the right fit for our business.

Wella have just released their New Norm Collection. How will this inspire you in your colour work? The New Norm Collection reinvents the past’s best looks and craft techniques, so it has inspired us to revisit the Wella Professionals Illumina colour collection, allowing us to play with contrasting tones and textures. Toni&Guy’s current collection runs beautifully alongside The New Norm, and I’m sure our new collection will also be a great fit when it’s released shortly.

Another range we love is KP Innosense, which is perfect for colour-sensitive clients. Honestly though, our colourists don’t like to limit themselves with just a single colour range; they love to have fun with them all.

What are some of your favourite new-season products? I love the new System Professional collection, which feels really luxe, and the personalised results are incredible. My other favourite is Sebastian Professionals Dark Oil; silky, weightless, beautiful and versatile. I will never get tired of EIMI Dry Me or Sebastian Drynamic, which always create soft, beautiful texture. I’m also looking forward to the launch of the three new EIMI products: Shape Me, Glam Mist and Body Crafter.

What are you inspired by currently? I’m really into the latest looks from the runway, and social media keeps me up-tothe minute. Just as inspiring is looking to my colleagues and seeing what surprises they come up with on a daily basis.

What colours and styles are on-trend for the spring/ summer season? We’re really liking this 70s play on hair, mixed with the cowboy southwest feel that Christian Dior showed. I also like the ‘ethereal goddess’ feeling from the Chanel shows. However, the priority is always paring that back to add a fresh approach, which complements our clients style and educates them on how to recreate their new look at home.

INSPIRATION As winner of the 2017 Australian Hair Fashion Awards’ Newcomer of the Year, Nathan Cherrington’s collection ‘Zephyr’ captures a refreshing vibe that is less ‘anti-establishment’ and more ‘anti-stereotype’. With a predominantly editorial hair fashion direction, the colour work is rich with opulent shine, allowing textural elements to remain centre stage via strong haircuts and styling. The inclusion of a harsh undercut and snaking up-do pushes trend boundaries and sets an alternative agenda for hair fashion.

5 Minutes with... the INDUSTRY New Zealand Award Winners 2017 We get the low-down on spring/summer style, celeb crushes, and product favourites from five talented award-winners


he INDUSTRY New Zealand Hairdressing Awards in May celebrated some of the finest talent our amazing local industry has to offer. We wanted to find out a little more about these five award-winning creatives; from their hair muses, through to what’s inspiring them, and current hair obsessions. For the inside scoop on Michael Beel, INDUSTRY New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year, see our interview with the man himself on page 29


My hair colour picks for spring/summer are… colour, colour and more colour. Embrace it; whether it’s a few peeka-boo placement pieces, or bold all-over statement.

My hair muse is… a French blogger. Find her on Instagram @babiolesdezoe. Her style is a little bohemian chic My favourite era for inspiration is… the 20s for shorter styles; classy and sophisticated. The 70s for long hair, loose and dishevelled, with lots of long fringes and movement.

5 tools I always have in my kit are… metal tail comb for highlights, plastic tail comb and cutting comb for global colours, medium and large round brush for straight or glamour blow-dry’s, ghd irons for that smooth finish.

My celebrity crush is... Victoria Beckham. Always impeccable, drop-dead gorgeous husband, and beautiful children. I’m currently inspired by… @prettylittleombre. She does the most seamless balayages. Also, Be Scene Studios for their creative colour work.

CREATIVE TEAM OF THE YEAR French Revolver Studio (answered by Creative Director Brad Lepper)

The actors we’d choose to play us in the movie version of our life are… the cast of Friends.

Our current hair muse is…Katie Moore. We’d describe the French Revolver team in 5 words as…fun, unique, passionate, ambitious and family.

If we could only use 3 products on our hair forever, they would be… Sebastian Dark Oil, Thickefy Foam and Trilliance.

Beautiful hair to us means…confidence. If we could direct the hair for any designer’s runway show it would be… Alexander McQueen. This is art to us.


My hairdressing idol is…Eugene Souleiman I’m currently obsessed with… beachy hair and dewy skin! I just got back from Rarotonga, so I'm currently in denial that it's still winter.

My top 3 products right now are… Redken Fashion Waves 07 for texture, Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry for smoothness, and Redken Windblown 05 for an aerated finish.

If I could direct the hair for any designer’s runway show it would be… Romance Was Born (if I was excluding NZ designers).

My last fashion purchase was…Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Chelsea boots and a pair of Federation socks to wear with them. Beautiful hair to me is…Natural, undone texture; you can't beat an effortless, easy (but really it took you 45 minutes!) style. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 47

My favourite era for inspiration is…the 20s and 80s; the 20s for the glamour and era of the smoky eye, and the 80s because there was so much creativity and imagination.

The makeup artist I most admire is…Pat McGrath. She can’t be beat.

My dream job would be…to work alongside someone like Pat would be incredible. I’ve always wanted to be involved backstage on fashion shows. Or one day having my own small salon doing hair and makeup

My pet makeup hate is…foundation lines/ mismatched around the jaw. I'm definitely a less is more kind of girl when it comes to foundation.

Favourite makeup look for spring/summer is…the glossy nude look. Rose/peach natural blush tones with brushed eyebrows and a soft pop of colour on the lips or lids.

The product I can’t live without is…LiLash serum and mascara and the Fab Contour Kit.


I would describe my hairdressing style in 3 words as… effortless, cool and sexy.

My style crush is… Olivier Rousteing, the designer for Balmain.

My favourite new-season product is… the Redken Clean Maniac range; great for removing product build-up, especially strong gels and waxes. I'm also excited about the new ghd Nocturne collection.

The hairdresser I’d like to swap places with for the day is… Nicole Mangrum. She's Oprah's hairstylist. I want to spend the day with Oprah.

My spring/summer picks for men’s hair are… grown out undercuts, the momu "modern mullet" and the man fringe.

My idea of luxury is…not having to watch the clock. Having time to do what I love doing for as long as I want to. 48 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

Colour Playground Being a colour chameleon is easy, thanks to L’Oréal Professionnel’s Colorful Hair range. Rebecca Brent, owner of Wellington’s Willis York salon and L’Oréal Professionnel ambassador, fills us in


Colorful Hair is L’Oréal Professionnel’s new colour range. Can you tell us about the innovation behind it and how it links to ‘hair colour being the new make-up’? Colorful Hair



is powered by L’Oréal Professionnel’s Care Trio Complex. This is a unique mix of direct colour pigments, ceramides and cationic polymers that result in ultra-vibrant, true-to-tone colour, and leaves hair feeling amazing! Hair colour is the new makeup is about giving colour chameleons the chance to express themselves with their hair colour. Clients want to feel unique and the Colorful Hair range offers hairdressers endless possibilities to customise and change each client’s look every time they walk out the salon.

Staff targets, online booking, marketing, reports and so much more

What’s unique about the collection? It’s a direct-dye colour palette that is completely intermixable, making infinite possibilities. What have you been enjoying most about using Colorful Hair? So much! The simplicity of the mixing, the beautiful, creamy texture making application a dream, the infinite pastel possibilities, the brightness of colour result over darker levels of hair, and the ability for clients to experiment with fashion colours and change regularly without too much commitment.

From a technical point of view, how does the range make getting creative so much easier? The range has such a wide variety of colour palettes, all intermixable; from navy blue through to pale blush. L’Oréal provided a technique and recipe book that came with the range and being a technician, I tested ALL the colours and the results were true. This means there is no guesswork, and with the addition of SMARTBOND improving the porosity of hair, the results are not patchy and last 10-15 washes. It really is exciting.

Top tips for colourists using the range? The best way to get to know a new product is to use it! Network with other stylists and share your recipes and pictures. The more #colorfulhair images, the more powerful a product becomes.

Can you share a favourite Colorful Hair cocktail? I am always biased towards the pink palette. My favourite combinations are slightly juxtaposed; soft pink and iced mint for example.


What will consumers love about this colour collection? Consumers are getting more adventurous with their hair because celebrities are endorsing their unique side. Also, the service time is quick (5-20minutes), so this is a fantastic add-on to a service. I can feel a colourful summer coming…the simplicity of the product, and the fact it’s temporary is what makes it fun!

Your picks for the hottest colour looks for spring/ summer? Multi-coloured hair is going to be huge for festivals, along with jewel tones, peach coral tones, and of course, any shade of pink!

RENDING T 'S New Talent


@hairbyashleyh Curly hair The fully fledged curly girl is back and she’s amazing. Not controlled but seriously fluffy. Headway fave Imaan Hammam is just extraordinary and a new talent of authentic model calibre – check her out in UK Vogue. Watch this space and ‘let it fro’ by channelling some disco divas.



Crimping It’s back, but this post-80s go-around is delivering some variations on a theme which has been aptly named ‘notice-me’ hair. It’s edgier than the bombshell but hopelessly romantic as well. Add some colour and you have an ethereal effect great for spring blossoms.






Having splashed through weeks of rain, we are so looking forward to a change of season. We’re inspired and sharing the love via our digital hit-list of talent movers & shakers online, plus moments of genius for now, next and forever.

There’s a fringe for everyone so they say but team HWY are all about no fringes. We were tempted when we saw the latest on Taylor Hill and then on Bella Hadid at CFDA. Result - a good deal of scrolling and no small amount of fringe envy





Mermaid hair We’re talking colour those beautiful wavy locks that inspired Botticelli’s Venus. No fringe and no layers above the jaw means the Rapunzel look is back. Hair extension queens take note – business is going to boom this spring.

Crowning glory



Last seen in 2015, it appears gold foiling is back, along with hair adornment to a new level. This is not hair jewellery but hair as jewellery. Channel your inner bohemian and keep the festival vibe going with floral crowns, butterflies, jewels and bling. Think scruffy meets chic and have some fun.


Colour crush


Unicorn shades and pastels continue to be strong favourites and we were excited to have this as not only a trend but a feature for us this issue. Look out for millennial pink, a low maintenance, fun look and blorange in a more peachy than rose gold shade.

Winning Form Headway talks to the talented New Zealand Gold winners of Goldwell Colorzoom 2017


reative Colourist winner Angela Thomson from Vivo Hair & Beauty in The Strand, Tauranga, and New Talent winner, Regina Win Yan Tang from Vivo’s Howick Auckland salon, impressed the judges with their individualised interpretation of Goldwell’s ‘In-Flux’ Collection. The pair will be heading to Barcelona to compete live with Colorzoom country winners from around the globe in October. Here, they share their passion for ‘limitless creativity’ and favourite shades for the new season.

What does winning this award mean to you? work pay off. It’s amazing what believing in yourself and just going for it can do. Regina: I am so excited to represent New Zealand at Globalzoom. I have entered Colorzoom over the past few years and have learned every time I have sent in my entry; now my hard work has paid off! I put my heart into this and can’t wait to share the platform in Barcelona with the rest of the world.

What was the inspiration behind your look?

Reg ina W

Angela: It’s just totally overwhelming and great to have my hard


Yan Tang

Angela: I thoroughly researched the ‘Fluidity’ trend to help me with my final look and I’m also lucky enough to live by the beach. I found the ocean and its wildlife such great inspiration, as the colours and movements for me directly represented fluidity. Regina: I was inspired by oil, especially with the sun’s reflection moving through oil and the different patterns it makes.

What are your must-have products right now? Angela: I am a big fan of Goldwell Colorance, which is an acid demi-permanent hair colour. Creating the perfect blonde tone is a challenge, but I love being able to experiment to achieve different hues, and the shine is beautiful. Goldwell StyleSign Soft Tamer is my favourite product for finishing hair. I use this all the time for movement. I love simplicity. Regina: I absolutely love Goldwell Elumen! I use it as often as I can and on as many clients as possible. I love how flexible it can be and the colours I can achieve. Limitless!

What do you love most about the hairdressing industry? Angela: I love my clients, I love making their day, and like winning Goldwell Colorzoom, I love the opportunity for limitless creativity. I look at every client like a form of art, as each one is a personal competition in creating something new every time. Regina: I love creativity and being limitless with what you can do. I love the lifestyle and making a difference to clients life and looks. 56 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

The focus is on juxtaposition of style; rough with smooth, hard with soft, ultimately delivering gorgeous, natural style.







Team Vivo Three talented educators talk about their passion for teaching and being part of the Vivo Hair & Beauty family





“Hairdressing is in my blood,” says Seamus. Coming from a family of hairdressers, it was only natural that Seamus would become the star hairdresser he is today. Seamus grew up believing that if he was going to be involved in the hairdressing industry, he had to earn a reputation on his own merits. From a young age, Seamus created opportunities essential to his success. Having bagged over fifty hairdressing awards and nominations, Seamus is now one of Vivo’s training educators, sharing his knowledge and expertise with over 350 stylists nationwide. “At Vivo, hairdressing is a career, not just a job. That’s why training is so important; to build your career, you constantly need to grow your skills. Our commitment to ongoing education gives our stylists every chance to really grow and become the best they can be.” Knowing clients are more informed on trends and products than ever before, it’s crucial a stylist’s skills are up-to-date. While managing Vivo Hair & Beauty Salon at Anglesea Clinic in Hamilton, Seamus also travels around New Zealand, leading education seminars on cutting, colouring, styling and barbering.

CATHY DAVYS Cathy didn’t always want to be a hairdresser. Growing up on a farm in Wairarapa, she actually wanted to be a jockey. After leaving Kuranui College, Cathy worked in a law office in Carterton but found it too boring. All the while, she was certain of one thing; she wanted to own a business. With this in mind, she went to Fantasia, the best salon in Masterton, to talk about what it involved. Offering to work for nothing, two days later Cathy was offered a job. She spent six years there, then opened her first business in Masterton, which quickly grew from two to eight staff. Cathy and her team ran a hugely successful salon at a premier location in Wellington. Having been in business for 40 years, Cathy sold her company to the Vivo Group five years ago to focus on education; she is now one of Vivo’s top National Educators. Delivering education to over 60 Vivo salons, Cathy nurtures and inspires a new generation of apprentices. Taking on cutting, colouring and bridal seminars, she has helped hundreds of Vivo hairdressers reach their potential. An award-winning hairdresser herself, Cathy has won many national and international awards, and frequently hosts hair events all over the world Whether on the salon floor or the world stage, Cathy’s enthusiasm and generous, open approach to sharing knowledge makes her a natural leader and educator. “Knowledge is everything; you can and should never stop learning,” she says.

BIANCA KARAM WHALLEY Bianca Karam-Whalley knew from an early age she was destined for success. Coming from a family of renowned hairdressers, it was natural her destiny would manifest as a fantastic career in hairdressing. At the age of 16, Bianca embarked on her career, which has spanned over 60 national and international award wins. Her big success for 2016, NZARH Senior Hairstylist of the Year, set her apart from the rest, and propelled her even further into the realms of success. When asked who her inspiration was growing up, Vidal Sassoon is her pick. “Their international presence is phenomenal”. Since joining Vivo, Bianca has quickly become a Vivo National Educator. “The Vivo training programme is incredible; to have a company put so much into their staff, to help them grow, putting them at the forefront of hairdressing,” says Bianca. “Vivo has grown so much, in so many facets, and this has stemmed from its dedication to hairdressing and its stylists. It’s a company that cares, and it shows”. Helping wave in a new generation of top hairdressers, Bianca has been involved with many of Vivo’s training seminars, barbering being her highlight. Bianca headlines a multitude of seminars in 2018, and the wait list is filling fast. “At Vivo, we have a client promise: hair you'll love or your money back. To make this promise, we need complete confidence that our staff perform at the highest level”.

COLOUR LUST Kiwi hairdressers put their creativity on high-beam for the Lust Colour Competition 2017


rom soft, feminine pastel creations, through to vibrant, bold shades, the Lust Colour Competition 2017 asked colourists to explore their creativity using Lust Semi-Permanent Hair Colour. The winners did a stellar job of showcasing both their skills and the array of looks that can be achieved using Lust. The judging panel were thrilled to see that the overall calibre of Lust Colour entries has lifted across the 2017 competition. “This is really exciting for the second year of the Lust Colour Competition and bodes well for the future,” says Lust co-founder and General Manager of Professional Hair Brands, Lio Paisnel. “Several entrants from 2016 entered again in 2017 and really listened to feedback from last year. It has demonstrated a great evolution in their work.” Each of the winners received cash prizes and the range of Lust Colour products.

Nadine Johns-Alcock is the new ghd National Education Manager for Australia/New Zealand. She talks to Headway about ghd’s latest campaign, the beautiful new Nocturne collection, and ghd’s innovative education plans for the coming year

Tell us about your new role at ghd? As the National Education Manager, I work with a team of educators across Australia and New Zealand to deliver inspiring in-salon sessions, dynamic events, and the latest in styling techniques. With a background in styling, creative direction and salon business, this is the culmination of a lifelong love affair with hairdressing. I am proud to have joined an iconic company that has inspired me throughout my career, and I look forward to bringing a fresh approach that honours ghd’s heritage in the art of styling.



What will your focus for ghd education be in the coming year? Stylists have shared their experiences of a changing industry; fast-paced and diverse. As industry leaders, we now have innovative ways to bring the heartbeat of ghd education to stylists and salons. We offer a suite of online learning, hands-on workshops across a much broader range of cities, and a unique partnership with Piloroo, that will enable salons to book the industry’s most sought-after guest artists to educate stylists within their own salons. What advice do you find yourself giving up-and-coming stylists? Hairdressing has given me the opportunity to change lives, travel the world, and develop lifelong relationships. It’s a place where dreams can come true if you are willing to seize every opportunity to learn that comes your way. Always say “yes”, and find a way to make it work. Tell us about ghd’s exciting new Christmas collection, Nocturne, and why clients will love it? Nocturne is inspired by the opulence of the dream noir. The collection blurs the boundaries between day and night, with ghd existing in both worlds. We have a range of great gifting ideas throughout the collection, including our best-selling Platinum® styler, which features the beautiful Nocturne design. We are very excited about our Nocturne Flight™ travel hairdryer, great for those travelling during the holidays. The collection is perfect for gifting to a loved one who needs a fresh new styling tool, or even as a luxe treat for yourself!

What is the idea surrounding the Infinite Styling Campaign? Infinite Styling allows you to express yourself throughout the party season and beyond; allowing you to style your hair as often as you please, with the confidence that your hair health is being respected while doing so. We take the concept beyond styling for every day of the week to ‘Infinite’, using a range of filmic and editing techniques that create a feeling of myriad possibilities, shown by creating several different ontrend hair looks on the same model.

What’s on-trend right now in terms of styling? Effortless volume and texture. We are back to beautiful hair, the kind of ethereal beauty that demands cared-for hair and premium tools that can take you from day into night and back into the day.

What can salons and stylists look forward to in the coming year from ghd? The year ahead will see exciting new innovations, not just for ghd, but the hairdressing industry itself. While I can’t reveal too much at present, I know the entire industry will be excited to see what we will be launching throughout 2018. 30 HEADWAY.NET.NZ





40 Hair | FOCUS





ver the past couple of years, we have seen a huge number of celebrities, influencers and high-profile fashion models undergo dramatic changes in hair colour. This has subsequently boosted their profile, and in some cases, launched their careers into the stratosphere. With social media giving literally everyone a voice, there seems to be more and more expectation of dramatic results, quickly and easily, with no repercussions or consequences for hair integrity. With dramatic colour change having this kind of a showcase on a global scale, we are seeing more consumers wanting the same looks as their favourite beauty icons. As they don’t see how much time and money goes into creating these looks (not to mention the smoke and mirrors and other fancy tricks that session stylists have up their sleeves to help celebs look really, really, ridiculously good-looking), the average consumer that visits your salon has much higher expectations than ever before of what can be achieved. I’ve personally seen numerous reports in forums of irate young women wanting the same colour their friend has (platinum blonde) for under a hundred dollars and in half an hour. Then advising that not only do they want a miracle for a song, they actually want the impossible because they’ve been colouring their hair themselves at home, and it’s black! And then becoming upset with the salon because they’ve been advised (professionally and rightfully so) that it’s unlikely to be possible and it’s going to cost well in excess of their budget, so perhaps they should




Session styling extraordinaire, Richard Kavanagh, talks about the increasing demand for dramatic colour change and how we can help clients embrace their individuality while keeping expectations in-check

consider another option… Sometimes it would be nice to be a total bitch and say what’s actually on our minds. A friend of mine in the 90s had a great saying only he could get away with; “Darling, it’s a pair of scissors, not a f**king magic wand!” Thankfully, colour companies have pre-empted this trend in dramatic and regular hair colour changes. Their technological advancements have allowed our industry to keep pace with consumer demands. Along with lower ammonia colour formulae, there are also now a number of very effective structure-enhancing or bondreconstructing additives. What does this consumer demand mean in terms of colour trends? We’re seeing the idea of hair colour as a kind of ‘makeup for the hair’ as it’s a way to dramatically change your look from one visit to the next. People are embracing the idea of exploring their individual aesthetic using hair colour as a medium for change. One month it’s platinum blonde, the next it’s rainbow, the following ombre, and then back to platinum again. Generally speaking however, global hair colour trends are taking their cues from the catwalks this season. Embracing the idea of individuality and diversity, there is a general nod to the 90s, with subtle golden coppers that feel lived-in and real, icy blondes with dimension created through tonal variation, and rich brunettes that feel natural and slightly flat-toned. In the 90s, beauty looks were effortless yet luxurious and this is reflected now in these colour trends. The real key to this season’s colour trends is in understanding and embracing the individual.

One of the many looks you can create using the ghd contour


Crimping, texture and volume with the ghd contour™ In continuation from last season’s obsession with curls, spring/summer is big on texture, with 80s-inspired looks taking centre stage on the catwalks. As a hair styling innovator, ghd is leading the way with this trend thanks to the new ghd contour™. This limited-edition super-tool launches this month and features advanced ceramic heat technology and multi-dimensional plates. It allows you to add depth and texture to any look, instantly enhancing shape and volume. Richard Kavanagh, ghd Australia and New Zealand Creative Director, says; “Texture and crimping is definitely back! It’s also in-demand, but it’s not what you remember it to be. It’s more subtle and there are quite a few ways you can integrate it into your daily styling. Here’s some of my top tips for getting the most out of your new favourite gadget.”

HAIR: Richard Kavanagh PHOTOGRAPHY: Steven Chee

Creating volume: This might not be something you initially think of using a crimper for but it’s so easy to create volume and bounce with the ghd contour™ and one of the ways that I love to use it. For using your crimper from day-to-day, the tip is to avoid crimping your whole head! You can do this in couple of ways: 1. Style hair as usual. Then, wherever extra volume or bounce is needed, take a narrow section (about 2cm thick by 5 or 6cm wide) and add texture near the roots with the ghd contour™. Apply the contour™ for a few seconds and release. Do three or four sections like this at the crown area, and brush the un-crimped hair over the top to hide the texture. 2. To create the perfect base for an up-do, press contour™ into the root area section by section all over the head (apart from the visible hairline) before twisting and pinning into your favourite style. You’ll find the style easier to achieve and it’ll hold better for longer.

Modern ponytail with festival texture: Blow-dry hair smooth with the ghd air® hairdryer and a ghd natural bristle brush. This is a good foundation for your ponytail. Part in the centre and brush into place. Take a random section and imprint with the contour to create a unique adornment feature by pressing firmly about an inch away from the scalp, then work your way down the section alternating between crimped and smooth. Repeat this technique on three or four surface sections of the hair, before pulling back into a low ponytail. Take a small piece of hair from the pony, wrap it round and round to cover the elastic. Keeping it held firmly in place, spray the wrap with hairspray from about 1cm away, then blast with warm air from your ghd air® hairdryer to set it.

Ultimate 70s babe hair Start with clean dry hair. Take a 2-3cm deep horizontal section at the nape and pin the rest of the hair up and out of the way. Starting about 2 inches from the roots, squeeze the hair in between the plates of your ghd contour™ long enough to imprint the texture on the hair. Work in a similar fashion towards the ends, meticulously creating a loose crimped texture. Once you’ve completed the first section, work up the back of the head in similarly sized sections until you’ve completed the back of your head. Then move to the sides; remember to start an inch or two from the scalp to keep that lived-in, cool girl vibe. When you’re done, give hair a good brush through and a light mist with dry shampoo for that extra effortless vibe. My hot tip is, the thicker the sections, the softer the result; the thinner the sections, the stronger the result. Work with this and you can’t go wrong.

INSPIRATION This stunning collection, which earned the Joey Scandizzo Artistic Team a win at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards 2017, takes inspiration from the recent work of designers like Tom Ford, with their nostalgic take on 70s and 80s glamour. The retro, sexy flavour has a contemporary feel; the hairstyles are part beautiful, part bold statement pieces, while the colour is tasteful and classic; a natural, muted palette that fits with the tone of the collection.

Headway | PROFILE

and consistency in how we approach the business. We work hard to build trust by valuing strong relationships that grow year-on-year. We are not just a product supplier, we are a true business partner, dedicated to help achieve your dreams.

Having a sense of family is important to Wella. How will you continue to foster that? The best thing about Wella is its people. We’re lucky to have a passionate, well-rounded team who embody the Coty value of ‘Win For The Team’. We encourage honesty and openness, celebrate diversity of opinions, harmonious relationships, and most importantly, ensure we focus on creating value for our salon partners - and we never forget to have fun. All of this is important to continue the ‘family’ culture and ensure the team feel empowered in their roles.

Education is also paramount to your brands. What can NZ salons look forward to in this regard? We are organised around three key poles to serve


WE ARE FAMILY Each issue, Headway will be talking to a team member from the Wella family. For spring, we chat with General Manager Australia & New Zealand of Coty Professional Beauty, Jerome Toulza, about Wella’s dedication to education, innovation and their future as part of Coty With the new ownership of Wella by Coty Professional Beauty, what advantages will Coty bring to the table? We are incredibly excited about our future with Coty. With the acquisition of the P&G beauty business, Coty created a powerful portfolio of some of the world’s most-loved brands; we are creating not just a challenger, but a world-leader in the beauty industry. The passion and knowledge that Coty has is testament to the growth of the business and the hard work of its people. Right now the opportunities feel endless.

In what ways do you believe Wella is unique? Many of our talented artists say that being with Wella is like being part of a family. For me, that’s also true. The hard work, dedication and passion of our team is matched only by that of our salon partners. Our industry also values relationships, long-standing partnerships,

our salon partners. First and foremost is education, led by Gina Thomas, Education Director for Wella ANZ, and supported by a team of incredibly talented educators. Most of our educators have been with the company and in this industry for a significant amount of time. They know their salons and our industry partners very well, which allows us to create bespoke education plans that help them grow their business and excel in their careers. I consider this a key strength for Wella, as well as a clear point of difference, and something we are looking forward to expanding on in both New Zealand and Australia.

What’s the most important focus for you and the team over the coming year? Wella’s number one priority is our customers, so this is always our focus. We have just moved fully into the Coty business and our objective was to protect our customers from any impact due to this transition. The feedback we have received so far is very positive, but it will be a big focus for the year ahead, as we identify more opportunities to be braver and go beyond for our salon partners.

What are some of the exciting innovations coming through you can share with us? This is a big year for Wella innovation; we’re currently focusing on Wella’s biggest launch in years – the rebirth of our prestige brand, System Professional. Beyond this, our pipeline is packed with exciting innovations encompassing colour, care and styling across all of our brands. Stay tuned to see what’s next!

What does the future look like for Wella, both here and internationally? Wella is now part of a company where beauty is at the centre of what we do; that is an exciting prospect. Wella now sits alongside other global mega-brands, including O.P.I and ghd, which opens the door to new thinking, experience and synergies. I know that both globally and locally this will open the door to a more comprehensive offering for our customers which we were unable to give before. We’re also creating a culture where innovation, entrepreneurship and fast decision-making is fostered, and this will positively influence how we best anticipate and serve our salon partners and their consumers’ needs.

A TOUCH OF PARIS This beautifully appointed Tauranga salon blends vintage and Parisian chic with an eco-industrial vibe to create a warm, unique space unlike any other.


using Parisian chic with an eco-industrial feel, this salon space embraces the definitive “otherworldliness” equal to anything you are likely to see in central Paris. A DO Hair, an internationally award-winning salon now situated in central Tauranga, pairs industrial elements with vintage décor, giving a quintessential French look with a hint of industrial modernism. A DO introduces an uncomplicated colour palette of antique white, rustic coppers, and bronzes that bring a relaxing balance to the space. Upon entry to the salon, the lush green Scandinavian moss wall not only looks stunning, but gives an environmentally-friendly aspect by purifying the air and acting as a sound buffer. The innovative retail stands provide a functional and interesting piece of wall art, mixing retro items with upcycled boxes to provide a unique take on sales displays. Textured walls also peak your interest throughout the salon. The pressed tin, which has been masterfully softened with a rustic vibe, adds to the salon’s eco-industrial luxe styling. Hand-waxed Corten Steel benchtops add a touch of colour, and the hard, durable surface makes a very practical and easy-to-use work space. The Designer Salon Collection from Comfortel has been the perfect choice of salon furniture; the plush look adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to the space. The Diamond two-seater and Puccini chairs with weaved textured upholstery add interest and complement the comfortable yet luxurious feel of the salon. “Comfortel are without a doubt a true market leader when it comes to exquisite basin and workstation chair design,” says A DO co-owner, Jason Davies. “The superb quality of their furniture, and range of accessories and fabric, allowed us to customise the bespoke look of our salon beautifully.” The creative force behind the interior design and fit-out are Shelley and Ray Pullar of A DO Commercial Fit-outs. In designing a world-class salon, A DO have not just paid homage to the eco philosophy, but have surpassed this by upcycling everything: from industrial material though to lighting fixtures. A truly wonderful take on Parisian eco-chic.

CREATIVE FORCE Wella Professionals Creative Director, Frank Apostolopoulos, is one of the most inspiring hairdressers of our time, with a fierce style we all admire. The three-time Hair Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year talks to Headway about his role with Wella, current inspiration and spring style favourites

What does your role as Wella Professionals Creative Director entail? My role is to share my vision and interpretation of the Wella Professionals collections and new ideas to inspire the Australian and New Zealand hairdressing industry. Another important part of my role is being able to mentor and nurture hairdressers who aspire to continuously improve their craft.

What do you love most about working with Wella Professionals and why did you choose to partner with them? I admire the brand’s freedom and sensitivity to what hair is all about, and Wella’s continuous dedication to education is an inspiration to the industry and consumers. How would you describe your hairdressing style? I don’t have a ‘style’, as I don’t allow myself to be put in a box. At any given moment, something could trigger my mind and I push myself to make it happen.

technique right now? Currently, I favour stricter, heavier, weightier shapes that still don’t look too accurate.

What styles are you looking forward to creating for clients this spring/summer? That varies on the client, but currently I am inspired by bolder classical shapes that have been knocked around. What’s inspiring you right now? Industrial and brutalist design – strong and sharp forms and shapes. IMAGES: FRANK APOSTOLOPOULOS

What are your current must-have products and tools? My current favourites from the Wella range include EIMI Ocean Spritz, a must-have for undone beachy looks and UV protection; EIMI Sugar Lift for its lift, shine and grippy texture properties; and System Professional Luxe Oil for its lightweight, long-lasting smoothness and shine.

Wella Professionals have just released three new styling products in their EIMI range (Shape Me, Glam Mist and Body Crafter). What do you love most about using the range? What I love about EIMI is that it is really

based on texture transformation. It completes and serves every purpose. It’s the most workable range I have ever used. Which hairdressers do you most admire? I admire those hairdressers that are truly dedicated to our profession; day-in, day-out, they work continually towards making their clients look even more beautiful than when they walked into the salon. These are the real heroes of our industry. They don’t chase fame, they just work their hearts out to impress their clients and live up to what hairdressing is really about. Instagram stalks? For me, the beauty of Instagram is that it leads you from one image to the next and you can get lost in it for hours. My favourite account to look at is National Geographic.

You’re a part of Wella Trend Vision this year, and have been in previous years. What is the best advice you could give those entering a competition like this? My biggest advice to Wella Trend Vision entrants would be: never try to repeat last year’s winner. Be fearless, do it with meaning, with passion, and animate the style of hairdresser you are.

How did your relationship with L’Oréal Professionnel begin and what do you love about the brand? I have worked with L'Oréal Professionnel since I began my career 16 years ago and have always been passionate about the education and artistic side of our industry. I love working with L'Oréal because of their innovation, quality and dedication to education and growth within the industry, and its artists.

L’Oréal Professionnel have just launched Colorful Hair. What are you enjoying about the range and what can colourists look forward to when using it? I have been absolutely loving Colorful Hair; it’s the missing link we needed with constantly shifting trends. It allows us to offer a fresh new service to our clients. The product is very versatile, which allows me to be creative in-salon and with shows, leaving the hair super-glossy and rich in pigment.

What are you obsessed with right now in terms of colour? I’m obsessed

COLOUR QUEEN Danielle Solier is an award-winning colourist and L’Oréal Professionnel spokesperson from top Melbourne salon, Xiang Hair. She shares her colour obsessions and what’s trending for the new season

with a few trends at the moment; one being marbling colour, which is always fun to achieve on the more daring, dusty tones. Plus, olive green in hair. I’m always following the Pantone colours of the year.

You were the colourist behind Dannii Minogue’s much-talked about pink hair, which made a splash at the AHFA’s in April. What was your inspiration for her? Dannii has always been open to change. Pink is a very on-trend colour this year and she loved the idea of candy-like, fairy floss hair. It was great, as Colorful Hair had just come out and I was able to customise her pink with the new product.

What are your biggest hair colour do’s and don’t’s? Always use quality products, especially when it comes to heat protection. Don’t use too much silver shampoo, as it flattens out all the hard work you did to get a clean, bright blonde.

You recently won Creative Colourist of the Year at the AHFA’s. What is your starting point when creating a new collection? Our team loves the creative process of producing new

Who has influenced you most in your career? So many people have been a huge influence in my career; from my husband, to my educators, through to my business partners, and all past and present team members that have brought new skills with them along the way. What are the stand-out colour trends for spring/summer? Rust, metallic and dusty tones I think are really big right now. Also, I’m seeing nude beige tones coming through, even in makeup, and opal colours for the festival season.

Bio Towel was designed in New Zealand with a sustainability approach in mind. The idea is to reduce water and power consumption using sustainable wood fiber instead of cotton towels. With over 70% of consumers stating that they feel a responsibility to purchase products that are good for the environment and society, so too are they trending towards salons and spas that embrace this vision of environmental responsibility. Choosing products that are sustainable and eco-friendly can be beneficial in more ways than one; the savings to your salon for a start.

Two of the stunning photographic images from Natasha’s award- winnning Hair Expo collection.

THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE Invercargill’s Natasha King from Fred & Gingers was a crowd-pleaser at this year’s Hair Expo Awards, taking out the People’s Choice Award. We spoke to the talented salon owner about her inspiration, hair heroes, and product must-haves


How did it feel to win the 2017 Hair Expo People’s Choice Award? Like I’d won the lottery! It hadn’t crossed my mind it was possible. Being up against the other finalists and their massive followings seemed out of reach to a girl from the bottom of the South Island! I was excited and proud to take that award for everyone who invested so much in me. I won’t lie; I was also incredibly nervous about tripping on the stairs up to the stage!

What’s inspiring you in your work right now? My team. I am surrounded by such creative genius every day and am blessed to be constantly challenged and inspired by them. We are so lucky now to have access to inspiration everywhere. How would you describe your hairdressing style? My everyday work is slightly edgy and creative. I enjoy creating new shapes and textures and have a clientele that let me do just that. I love wiggy textures and disconnected styles that are still feminine and beautiful. With my photographic work, I lean toward the slightly dark and gothic. I’ve never been a flowers and rainbow kind of girl.

What has been your best product discovery this year? Matrix Style Link Mess Maker. It gives weightless guts to fine hair, texture and style support for shorter looks, and messy grunge for longer waves. I can’t get enough of it! Who are your hair heroes? Frank Apostolopoulos and Angelo Seminara for their creative and photographic work. But my hair heroes are Carl and Belinda Keeley (Chumba Salons, Australia), not just for their talent, but for the way they give back with education, mentoring, training and sharing their skills. These two are a powerhouse couple that have given me so much and one day, I hope to help others as they have me.

What’s the best thing about working at Fred & Gingers? The team. We are a bunch of best friends that happen to work

If you could create the hair looks for any designer’s runway show, who would it be? Alexander McQueen or Martin Margiela.

Who’s your dream celebrity client? Jason Statham. I realise he has no hair, but I would really like him in my chair!! What’s your haircare regime? I’m a terrible example! Anyone who knows me knows my hair is constantly in a pony. I love Matrix Biolage R.A.W Uplift Shampoo and Conditioner, followed by Biolage RepairInside Control Cream, then Mess Maker. 86 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

INSPIRATION Danielle was inspired by the works of artist Francis Bacon for ‘Artisanal”, which won Danni Creative Colourist of the Year at the AHFA’s 2017. “Themes of violence and mortality were often central to Bacon’s art and he succeeded in creating emotion through his use of brushwork and colour, as well as his exaggeration of form, combining beautiful brush strokes with hard aggression. I took this idea and translated it into an incredibly assured colour collection, fusing hard and soft and contradicting the notion of aggression with my use of dusty, often pastel, tones which lends an air of passivity to the final outcome.” HEADWAY.NET.NZ 91

BOHEMIAN JET-SETTER Two well-travelled, chic industry experts share their essentials for travelling in style




lexandra Wirz-Dunbar is director of Chère Chérie, a high-end Davines salon in Christchurch Central.

Aquaphor Healing

Which skin and hair and products can’t you live without when overseas? For my hair,

Where is the most exotic or interesting place you’ve travelled so far? I travelled to Trunyan Village in Bali when

Davines Oi All In One Milk, Davines Hair Refresher and Oribe Curl Gloss. And for my skin, Melaleuca essential oil and coconut oil are a must.

I was younger. Before Bali became over-run with tourists, it was so beautiful and exotic...and super interesting too! Since then, I’ve travelled extensively throughout the UK and Europe, New Zealand and Australia, and of course, the USA. I’m so fortunate to have grown up in Puerto Rico and California, to have a Swiss father and a Kiwi husband! We are always going somewhere to visit someone! Next on our list is Asia and India.

What can’t you get through duty-free without stocking up on? I love going through

“I’m so fortunate to have grown up in Puerto Rico and California, to have a Swiss father and a Kiwi husband. We’re always going somewhere to visit someone!”

What’s your secret for surviving long-haul flights? Sleeping for at least half of it, and a good book.

What does your travel makeup bag always contain? Evian Mineral

Water Facial Spray, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser, Anastasia DIPBROW Pomade, Cloud Paint Cream Blush, L’Oréal


Voluminous Mascara and Ointment for my lips.

the makeup section. I always buy mascara; it’s an addiction.

What kind of beauty/hair maintenance do you make sure to schedule in before a trip? Babylights and Balayage, with an in-salon treatment. I can’t leave home without taking…my hairdryer. This wavy mane needs taming at times.

What key fashion pieces/accessories do you find the most versatile? Slip dress and jeans; you can dress them up or down.

What is your time-saving holiday hair and beauty routine? Low hair-up and red matte lippy - a classic for any occasion. Plaits are my wavy hair saviour; they help tame the puff and the next day it looks great left out. Your best packing tip? Pick a simple colour palette and stick to it. I pick my shoes out first, then build my outfits around them.

40 Hair | PROFILE



lways immaculately turnedout, Tatum Savage is Communications Manager for MAC Cosmetics and travels extensively, both for work and pleasure

Where are the most exotic or interesting places you’ve travelled so far? Bali is one of my favourite holiday destinations, and Gavin (my husband) and I also love France. We were lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in Provence in a tiny little town called St Remy de Provence. We immersed ourselves in the culture and it was so cool to live in a tiny village and make friends with the locals. Los Angeles is hands-down one of my favourite cities in the world and I also love New York. One of the most exciting and vibrant cities I’ve visited many times is Tokyo. I’ve almost always explored this city by myself and felt utterly safe the entire time.

What’s your secret for surviving long-haul flights? I like to wear nice clothes onto the aircraft, but then change into something more suitable for a long-haul flight. This way, I can sleep more comfortably, but also have fresh clothes for when we land. I also wear compression socks because there is nothing worse than feeling puffy at the other end. Noise-cancelling earphones are a must, as is an eye mask to block the light. I also douse myself in MAC Fix+ spray and MAC Lip Conditioner to keep my skin and lips hydrated.

What does your travel makeup bag always contain? MAC have a great selection of travel size skincare called Sized To Go, so I always carry this version of our Pro Eye Makeup Remover, Fix+ spray and Strobe Cream. I also take my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum and MAC Vibrancy Eye Cream to combat tired eyes.

With husband Gavin in Bali

Which skincare products can’t you live without when overseas? I love a great skincare regime and I don’t let it slip whilst overseas. My routine every morning consists of cleansing with La Mer Cleansing Foam. I then layer Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum with MAC Prep + Prime Essential Oils. I pat on eye serum and finish with a mash-up of Pure Fiji Dilo Oil and MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite. I can’t leave home without taking… MAC False Lashes Maximizer to push lashes to their full potential, layered with any MAC mascara on top. I love Instacurl Lash but can’t wait to try Bold & Bad Lash launching in October. I also wouldn’t leave the house without applying MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite.

Which key fashion pieces/ accessories do you find the most versatile? Leather pants and leather shorts are fail-safe. You can wear them with a dressy top and heels or a t-shirt and slides, depending on the occasion. And they travel well because they don’t need ironing! Also, a great pair of earrings can change your look in an instant. I’m in love with Jasmin Sparrow’s jewellery and she has great statement earrings!


What is your time-saving holiday hair and beauty routine? Definitely a blow-wave; poker straight so it lasts, then I use KEVIN.MURPHY FRESH.HAIR and R+Co Foil Frizz. I tend to wear just mascara and a great MAC retro matte liquid lippie for long-wearing makeup whilst travelling.

My favourite overseas holiday destination is…I currently have my eye on Greece and Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

The Professional Products Division (including L’Oréal Professionnel, Kérastase, Redken, Matrix and Pureology) conducted more than 13,600 hours of hairdressing education in 2016. With more than 4,000 in-salon training events, 14,774 professional hairdressers received training last year, and further growth of educational seminars in 2017-2018 is planned. The practical and theoretical courses available range from professional artistry and techniques, salon management, digital and retail experience, and fragrance training. “It’s important that we continue to provide world-class facilities to industry experts and tomorrow’s beauty professionals,” comments Mike Bruce, General Manager of L’Oréal Professional Products New Zealand. “As a brand, our quest for leading innovation and education must reflect the learning space that we

facilitate in. Education is at the heart of what we do and we are continuing to evolve this space; not only to facilitate education seminars, but also be a place of digital innovation where salons can shoot their social media, editorial shoots, salon campaigns and marketing communications.” The inspirational, sustainable and digital environment fits with L’Oréal’s mantra to Reduce, Recycle and Reuse, and to support local artisans wherever possible. Sustainability is evident in the materials and finishes, and extends to the use of energy-efficient LED and sensor lighting, efficient white-ware, extensive insulation and responsible water practices. A bespoke mural by celebrated New Zealand aerosol and stencil artist Flox is a salute to New Zealand’s flora and fauna; our trademark native birds, ferns and flowers providing a colourful focal point for the Academy.

SCHOOL’S OUT Two hair students from the Premier Institute of Education share the the most important things they’ve learnt during their time at PIE and their ambitions for the future

Why did you choose to specialise in barbering? I was struggling to decide what I wanted to do after school, then I saw the Premier advertisement for barbering and I thought that would be a great trade to pick up. I’ve always been fascinated by the barbering videos you find online and the thought of being able to do that myself was very intriguing.

What are the most valuable skills you’ve learnt? Communication. I’ve always been very shy and since starting at Premier, I’ve learned how to interact with people of all ages and become more confident and comfortable with meeting new people. I still struggle now and then, but I’ve improved tremendously.

What have you enjoyed most during your time at Premier? That it’s not a strictly serious environment. Everyone is so friendly and continuously joking around with each other, yet I still manage to pick up new skills every day due to the lack of stress and pressure that is put on me.

Who do you look up to in the hairdressing industry? My tutor, Leon Toki. I came into the barbering industry knowing nothing about it at all, or how to simply interact with another person. Six months later, I’m working in a barber shop interacting with multiple strangers every day, and supporting myself with the skills taught to me by Leon. I owe all my success so far, and future success, to him.

What are your favourite men’s hair Instagram stalks? @menshairuk and @barber

Top picks for men’s cuts this summer? Short back and sides, subtle pompadour, mid-fade.

Where would you like to be in 5 years time? I have no idea but hope I will be

me great experience and confidence to get employment in a salon. I have been taught the basics of shampoo, treatment and styling in my first year, and more advanced units in the second year of cutting, blow-drying and chemical services. Premier have a really busy salon, so we are able to work on clients just as if we were in a salon environment. This has really built-up my confidence and skill level. I have also had lots of opportunities to do work experience at fashion shows, and also work backstage on productions. This has shown me a different side to my hairdressing career and all the possibilities available to me.

What are the most valuable skills you’ve learnt? Customer service, listening to clients, the ability to do a consultation for a client with confidence, along with all the technical skills required; full-head foils, colour, cutting, styling and blow-waves.

Who are your industry icons? Rodney Wayne as a business mentor. Also, Tabatha Coffey and Errol Douglas. What would be your ultimate dream job? To be a successful hairdresser in every way, and also to style celebrity hair. What are your favourite looks for the spring/ summer season? Loose messy buns, braids and I really love Balayage colours.

What does your future in hairdressing look like to you? One day, I hope to open my own salon.

What are you most excited about right now? I am most excited about continuing my hairdressing career once I have completed my course. I can’t wait! @PRE

INSIDER Whether we were watching an emerging designer’s debut, or a label well-practiced at taking the runway, this year’s New Zealand Fashion Week provided contemporary collections exhibited in creative, artistic ways, and hair looks that championed effortless wearability over anything else. Headway insider, Skye Ross shares her highlights

Budding designers Jordan Noah, Tia Feng, Laura Marris Bennett and Shannen Young stood out as ones to watch with their colourful, contemporary collections. These rising stars and another seven of their fellow creative classmates proved that NZ’s fashion grads are just as talented as our established designers.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Zambesi’s show as the Mercedes Benz presents designer and NZFW’s esteemed 2017 opener, would be one of models wearing head-to-toe black in true Kiwi… well, fashion. Instead, explosions of marigold took the runway by surprise and set the tone for what would be a popular hue at this year’s week-long event.

Zambesi @zambesisince79

Redken ran the hair station, with the talented Richard Kavanagh at the helm.

“Each model was given an individual look, from effortless up-dos, to sleek and straight super hero ponytails and everything in between,” he explained. “One United and Rough Paste were our hero products to make every model into the coolest version of themselves.”

Andrea Moore



Ever an extravaganza, Andrea Moore’s show began with social media influencers and eight Royal New Zealand ballet dancers debuting her new activewear range, FIT. The Autumn/Winter 18 range for her diffusion line, IAM was presented, as well as her main collection ‘The Pursuit’ which was “based around a couple of conflicting themes and historical nuances such as the Orient Express, Agatha Christie - think lush velvets, jewel tones, mystery and the Crane – which is often called the bird of happiness,” Andrea Moore said. ORECO O Hair director, Sara Allsop and her team of Joico stylists saw models wear their hair deeply parted to the side and adorned with beautiful Kela hair charms – one charm of which is covered entirely in Swarovski crystals and worth $40,000 alone. A


There was a hum of anticipation as an impressive 1500+ people awaited Huffer’s 20th anniversary show at Spark Arena. Not only was it a celebration of the iconic streetwear brand’s two-decade milestone, but it was a fashion industry achievement to have a showcase that large for such an accessible collection. Perhaps that is Huffer’s secret to longevity. From a hair perspective, Redken’s Richard Kavanagh led the procession with a surprising 60s inspired, punkish updo that had a lived-in texture and featured exposed bobby pins. Also, dotted unexpectedly through the group were models with vibrant, coloured tresses which were achieved by applying Redken’s edgy, semi-permanent City Beats range.

Headway | PROMOTION Artistic installations were de rigueur this year, but none were so eclectic or thrilling as Stolen Girlfriends Club’s giant black cube that secreted the models before they slashed through the plastic walls with blades to take the ‘Safer Than Heaven’ runway. The clothes paid homage to 90s grunge but were contrastingly inspired by futurism, with the occasional eclectic metallic leather number making a welcome appearance. Never ones to play by the rules, SGC’s 1000 strong crowd was served an androgynously styled collection, yet the hair, created by Richard Kavanagh for Redken, remained sexy, worn-in and very second-day-esque.

Stolen Girlfriends Club Wynn Hamlyn 1 HEADWAY.NET.NZ


Why do summer collections arrive mid-August when it’s a chilly 15 degrees out? And how come we see racks of coats reach stores mid-Feb when we’re still basking in the warmth at the beach? Wynn Hamlyn’s 2018 ‘Seasons’ collection served to challenge the industry’s schedule with a wardrobe of trans-seasonal pieces. For the hair, L’Oreal’s Michael Beel created a “soft, organic, glam wave” look, one that wasn’t too “contrived or ‘done’” but fit with the young fashion designer’s season-less theme.

Royal Mansour SPA


ith private gardens filled with the scent of orange-flower, palm-trees swaying and water cascading from many features, you’ll be forgiven for thinking the Royal Mansour Hotel was your very own oasis. The hotel itself boasts 53 riads, connected by pathways within a private medina, lined by 100 year old olive trees. Their staff rely on an ingenious system of underground tunnels, giving you the illusion of truly being on your own. Yet its most memorable aspect is its sense of welcome; that’s where the real magic happens.


Escape and unwind as Sharleen Singh shares Moroccan elegance in Marrakesh

40 Beauty | SPA FEATURE

“Its most memorable aspect is its sense of welcome; that’s where the real magic happens” MASTERFUL ARCHITECTURE The Royal Mansour’s spa itself is entered via an impressive atrium of whitewashed wrought iron, creating a beautiful infinite pattern. The reception and relaxation area of the spa is adorned with a fine, delicate silken mesh, offering glimpses of the blue skies over Marrakech. It looks lacy and woven - appropriate for a place where body and spirit are so luxuriously looked after.





2,500sq/m and three floors make up this private world dedicated to wellbeing and relaxation. On the ground floor, you’ll find two hammams, as well as a Watsu pool. Up on the first floor, ten treatment rooms and three private suites offer an endless list of treatments including massage, facial treatments, hydrotherapy and body wraps. The swimming pool, with its orangery-style glass roof, opens onto the gardens. Hidden beneath ground level is a generous space dedicated to sports and fitness, with a coach on hand, state of-the-art equipment, and sauna.

WORLD OF WELLBEING Every spa treatment starts off with a personalised consultation with specialist staff in one of the private alcoves of the spa atrium. Guests follow bespoke programmes adapted to their particular needs and fitness level, as well as advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle. You might try the Moroccan massage ritual with argan oil, or a Thai massage that draws on ancient knowledge to help with tension and boost energy. Or sample the soothing effects of hot stones or reflexology.

BEAUTIFUL INGREDIENTS The specialists behind the Royal Mansour Marrakech Spa have opted for a selective assortment of “must haves”. European marocMaroc products for the body are based on traditional local ingredients. For the face, Dr. Hauschka and Sisley, depending on the nature of your skin. For make-up and beauty it’s the luxury of Chanel. For hair you’ll find world-renowned Leonor Grey oil. Finally Révérence de Bastien, a range of products for feet, hands and nails, created by Bastien Gonzalez.

REINVIGORATE YOUR SENSES As far as signature therapies go, the hammam is this spa’s specialty. Lie back on the pink marble tiles and let yourself drift away as the masseur’s hands treat you to a traditional scrub with black soap, followed by moisturising treatments for body and hair. Your skin will be left with a glowing softness. Relaxing for the body and soothing for the spirit, allow this treatment to infuse you with new energy; with a hint of Moroccan magic.

BEAUTY TALENT With such a vibrant and innovative beauty industry at our fingertips, we get the low-down on spring colour trends, product must-haves and expert insights from three of our favourite industry talents

Best tip to prolong that glow?

so great that the user can choose their tone, especially when time is so poor in today’s world.

What changes are you seeing with regards to tanning trends? The old-

school matte tans, that made you look like you had changed your skin tone, is definitely a no-go. A healthy glow means brighter, deeper-toned skin, but moisturised, so skin health doesn’t suffer. 'Go the glow' is the biggest message with body tone and skin health when WE LOVE it comes to tanning.

It’s all about moisture banking, pre and post-tan, but especially posttan. Just how a foundation would sit unevenly if it was applied on a dry surface, tan can hold itself together when the skin is plump with moisture.

How is St.Tropez different from other brands? St.Tropez is not just about changing skin tone, but upgrading skin health to the body, with moisture and body glow. Each product has moisturising properties within, so the end result is not a dry, matte tan, like we used to see.

What is your must-have St.Tropez product? I'm actually a big fan of the gradual tan products for their many uses. Great for a beginner tanner, as you only get a hint of colour daily and it's then up to you how deep you go by the applications you apply. It’s also a great ‘mid-tan’ boost, as it can add moisture and revive the look of your skin tone, extending any tan life. As for a self-tan, it’s all about the express! 1 hour for a light coat, 2 hours for medium, or 3 hours for a deeper tone. It’s 114 HEADWAY.NET.NZ


Rather than adding moisture to the entire body, only apply to areas that can show tell-tale signs of a tan – elbows, hands, knees and feet. This will act as a barrier, so only small amounts of colour bond to these areas, which can absorb product faster than the rest of the body.



What is the biggest mistake people make with fake tanning?




What do you think will be the next big thing with regards to tanning for 2018? St.Tropez has just launched the first ever Tanning Sheet Mask! Sheet Masks are so popular for their incredible plumping and moisture effects for skin, and now while you apply, you can add a healthy summer glow to your skin.

Any tips on how to achieve that perfect shade? This is really a personal thing, as everyone has different skin and undertones. My advice is to always go with a brand with a green undertone, like St.Tropez. This ensures a deep golden tan, great for pink-based skin to balance tone, and the perfect partner for an already olive-toned skin.

What’s a trend you’re tired of seeing? The over-bronzed look! We all love a healthy summer glow, but when glow is taken to the level of dirty bronze, it really does nothing for you, and in most cases, ages you. So if ever in doubt, take a step back and go the glow!

apply it to clean dry lips directly from the canister and press lips together to fuse the natural pigments and oils together. I would also recommend you use our lip pencil collection and choose the shade that most closely matches the colour you are wearing. Make sure to outline the whole lip, as this will extend the lifespan of your lipstick.

What separates Karen Murrell lipstick from other brands? The people behind the product. We really do care! It’s my name behind the product and I am so passionate about offering the very best natural product on the market, in the very best selection of shades.

Then apply a base coat, such as Ridge Filler as it’s got a creamy finish that dries matte, which smooths any imperfections on the nail.

to do my own thing. I learnt marketing and sales at 42Below, which was really my only job after cricket. I needed to put those skills I had learnt into action; that meant starting a business. Skincare was more natural than you might think. A cricketer is in the sun all day, every day, so looking after our skin is of the utmost importance to how we feel and ultimately has an impact on how we perform, so skincare it was. I challenged myself to make a brand that if it fell out of my gym bag I would not feel embarrassed and want to hide it from my mates.

How did you come up with the name Triumph & Disaster? It comes from a Rudyard Kipling poem called ‘If’ which is advice about how to live your life. The full line is: “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster. And treat those two impostors just the same”.

SKIN RESPECT We spoke to beauty talent, co-founder and co-creator of Ginger&ME, Nicola Quinn, about G&M NEURO-COSMEDICS


hat prompted you to create G&M NEURO-COSMEDICS? The first seed was

planted back in 2013 while at an overseas trade expo. It was my mission to find a medi-spa skin and body care solution that was all-natural and delivered good results, but after many days (and foot blisters), the search was fruitless. Feeling despondent, co-founder Maria EnnaCocciolone suggested that, “if you can’t find what you are looking for, we will create it and make it ourselves”. Ginger&ME has been three and half years in the making! It’s been an incredibly challenging project working with new-age emulsifiers, texturisers and preservatives, removing all nasties and suspected nasties. By creating 21st century clean and sophisticated formulations based on beautiful botanicals, we have also had to adapt new manufacturing techniques to ensure stability and a luxurious brand experience. It hasn’t been easy, but it certainly has been worth it.

Advancements in active ingredients, formulations and technology allow us to create innovative skincare ranges that respect modern-day lifestyles (easy and healthy), whilst supporting business and market expansion.

What do you think makes this skincare collection unique? Made in Australia, G&M NEURO-COSMEDICS works on a cosmeticmedicine approach to prevent neuro-ageing and to support critical cell communication, whilst supporting powerful repair, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiageing skin benefits. The range is based on the science of Neuro-Cosmetics, with specific attention to Neuro-Ageing and Skin Recovery. The Neuro-Ageing focus is specifically recruited to protect and re-establish the critical communication from the nerve endings to the fibroblast (responsible for collagen and elastin synthesis), whilst the Skin Recovery supports the powerful repair compromised skin requires. We call this the A.C.D approach

“It is truly wonderful to offer to market a range that is effective; great for aging but well placed too for compromised skins”

How would you describe the range? We are the first to say that on the surface, the professional beauty industry appears to need another skincare brand like a hole in the head. We get it! However, in our roles working daily with skin and skincare professionals, we see new-age challenges, both when it comes to skin concerns and business needs. 118 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

What does A.C.D stand for? ‘A’ covers the essential antiinflammatory, antioxidant, anti-pollutant and anti-ageing skin needs. ‘C’ focuses on the collagen and elastin synthesis, and ‘D’ is all about cell detoxification and vitamin D receptors that support optimum barrier recovery. The range is built on the philosophy of skin respect and wellbeing.

What is your personal beauty philosophy? Do as much or as little as you need for your skin. Whatever you do, be sure to do it well! As much as I love really active skincare, I have always held the belief that these high concentration ingredients are not always suited for all skin types. It is truly wonderful to offer to market a range that is effective; great for aging but well placed too for compromised skins.

What inspires you personally and professionally each day? Two things really. Making a difference. Helping others to achieve their goals, and helping to push through road blocks. Feeding my creative need. I love to create. Seeing others enjoy the outcome of that creativity is the best feeling ever.

Your top three skin and body products for spring? Always, always it is sunblock first and foremost. I love the O Cosmedics Mineral Pro. With 20% zinc oxide, it’s a natural nonchemical sunblock which is incredibly light and matte to wear. This spring I’m looking forward to having my G&M NEUROCOSMEDICS Quinoa Lift & Hydrate Eye Cream close at hand. Not only is it fabulous for immediate skin tightening and antiwrinkle effectiveness (it can reduce visible wrinkles as much as 74% in just one hour), this eye cream has a fantastic calming and anti-irritant benefit. Something I really need as a hay fever sufferer. For body, I just love the Ginger&ME Body Oil. Superindulgent and jam-packed with only the good stuff. I love oils; I find them amazing for conditioning the skin to give longer term benefits for locking in hydration. The sheen left is subtle but so beautiful. It also doubles as a cuticle and hair oil. Don’t you love products that can multi-task?

What is the most important thing you’ve learnt about skincare throughout the process of creating this range? How much goes into putting together a range. It’s


mind-boggling and extremely detailed. There really are a lot of processes to get through and understand. So what have I learned about this process? Patience!

What do you think salon clients will love most about G&M NEURO-COSMEDICS? The fact that we managed to pull off a range that left out so many nasties. We know this point is so important to both consumers and therapists alike. The reality is that it’s a lot easier said than done. This is really what took us so long to bring the products to life, as there was a large amount of trial and error to get through.

ARMED & DANGEROUS Dr Catherine Stone explores technological body advancements, trends, and getting in shape for the warmer seasons ahead


he best summer bodies are prepped in spring, so now is the time to start heading back to the gym, eating healthy, and considering your cosmetic treatments so you can step into the summer party and beach season looking and feeling your absolute best!

of cosmetic body treatments. If you have prepped your skin well over winter, spring is the ideal time for IPL treatments to reduce the brown spots or pigmentation on the chest, neck and hands. Treated spots will go darker for 7-10 days before flaking off, so it’s great to have them covered with winter/spring clothes to hide the process. Plus, you need to be out of the sun for a month before and after each treatment.

HOW CAN SUN DAMAGE AFFECT THE BODY? One of the major areas to show ageing (sometimes from quite a young age) is the chest, neck and décollete. In New Zealand, we have been conditioned to apply sunscreen to our faces and put on a hat, but we often forget to reapply to the neck and chest area, which usually catch more sun - unless you are wearing a highnecked top. Anyone over the age of 40 is less likely to have taken the hat and sunscreen precautions, and is more likely to have significant sun damage in this area. Sun damage of the chest may be visible as brown/tanned discolouration of the skin (especially compared to non-exposed skin), brown pigmented spots, fine wrinkling, coarse wrinkling, and thickening of the skin in the affected area. As it becomes more advanced, rough scaly patches called ‘solar keratosis’ can develop, and eventually some of these may turn into skin cancer.

WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR THE BODY? Continual year-round use of body oils containing vitamins A and C can help normalise the DNA in sun-affected skin, reducing the long-term impact of solar skin damage (and body acne). Daily application of a combination of Environ’s ACE Body Oil with their Dermalac solution is an effective way to minimise the effects of sun damage on the skin. This combination also helps to get the body into optimal condition for many types 120 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

WHAT ARE THE LATEST TREATMENTS AND TECHNOLOGY? We have developed a new treatment at The Face Place which allows you to improve the repair, regeneration, hydration and ‘glow’ of the chest and neck area, especially if you’ve started to notice it becoming wrinkly, creased or crepey. Many women wake up in the morning with creases on their chest from the breasts squeezing together while sleeping on their side or front. Over time this repeated action, along with thinning or thickening of the skin with age, can result in the creases becoming deeper until they become permanent. Cellular Hydrate Plus™ combines the existing technologies of Cellular Matrix PRP - using hydrating hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules along with Platelet-Rich Plasma (the regenerative technology which uses the healing parts of your own blood), mixed with Botox and administered into the very top layers of the skin with a special technique called Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy has been popular in Europe for many years, where it has been used for administering medications, treating cellulite and improving skin tone. In scientific journals, the only products scientifically proven to have an effect with Mesotherapy are PRP and HA. The wonderful thing about Mesotherapy is that it doesn’t hurt and there is no bruising; the needle delivers the product into the middle part of the skin above the nerves and blood vessels, avoiding any damage to these structures. Distributed by Probeauty Ph: 03 351 6181

WHAT ARE SOME NEW TRENDS AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES? There has been a growing trend for ‘microbotox’ over the last few years, which uses tiny doses of Botox into the skin rather than into facial expression muscles. Microbotox appears to reduce pore size, refine skin texture, and create a luminous youthful ‘glow’. Last year we started combining PRP, HA and Botox together and administering it via Mesotherapy; we noticed beautiful, natural-looking improvements to the skin of the chest and neck, with little or no downtime. Often results can start to become visible in days and improve over weeks to months. A course of one treatment a month for three months is recommended for best results, as the positive impact is cumulative. You will need a consultation to determine if this treatment is right for you.

to get excessive sweating under control BEFORE summer arrives. Botox treatments are an effective way of ‘turning off the tap’, reducing excessive sweating by an average of 83% in scientific trials. Results last for about 6-12 months, so you will be covered over the summer months when it is more obvious. You might consider body contouring treatments about now too. While they do work effectively for some people, results are less consistent, and the most effective ones can often be quite uncomfortable. Patient selection is also important. Body contouring is best for those who are slim and just have hardto-move fatty patches. It is not a replacement for diet and exercise, and will not usually work on the type (or amount) of fat associated with obesity.

BEAUTY PRO Natalie Taylor, owner of Glow Skin & Body Spa in New Plymouth, discusses her start in the industry and winning the Elizabeth Arden PRO Salon of the Year award for 2017


How did you get your start in the industry?

all these standards are being held at the level of your expectation.

I was very lucky to have trained at College of Camille in Newmarket in 1995, this was a very intense one year course back then. During my training I was fortunate to pick up a part time job at a clinic in Meadowbank for Donna Smith who owns PSB. Once I graduated from College of Camille, I gained a full time position in a small Clarins clinic in Remuera. After a couple of wonderful years learning and growing in the industry, this was when I was introduced to cosmeceutical grade skin care. I worked out that I was a therapist that really loved taking that extra step with clients skin, and working with clients to achieve healthier, younger looking skin for a life time. I opened my first little business on my own next to a hair dressing salon, and was then lucky to have the opportunity to purchase Parfum and Nails in Meadowbank that I had worked in whilst training. I re-branded the salon to my business name “Beauty Boutique”, removed the sunbeds which were very popular back then, and grew the beauty therapy side of the business. I was fortunate to have an amazing team of staff and absolutely wonderful clients that I still miss today.

What’s your favourite Elizabeth Arden PRO product or facial?I absolutely Love the Age Defying Serum, the texture is so silky and leaves my skin feeling flawless. I pop my moisturizer over top and for day time, some Triple Action Protector for that full protection, so easy yet so effective.


“Having clients skin change to healthy glowing skin is such a wonderful achievement in its self ”

What is your best anti-ageing tip/ secret? Definitely sun protection, keep out of the sun as much as you can, but also wearing a good sunscreen daily regardless of whether you’re outside or not, they are great for protection against free radical damage as well. Just get in the habit of putting sunscreen on over your moisturiser every morning.

What would you say to someone wanting to start their own business?

Be prepared for the hard work ahead! I don’t think it gets any easier, even 18 years down the track it still takes up a huge part of your life, and has many challenges. But if it’s something you aspire to do, go for it!

What’s the key to the success of your business? I think it’s

How does it feel to win the Elizabeth Arden PRO Salon of the Year award? We are so honoured and so happy to have

ultimately a combination of things: having the right products that achieve results, having the right equipment to boost collagen and elastin, and to treat the skin more intensely than just an ordinary facial, and having the right therapists that complement your salon. Also, I believe as an owner setting the standards of expectations in your clinic is very important as well and to regularly ensure that

won. We are all here as professional beauty therapists to look after clients needs, and having clients skin change to healthy glowing skin is such a wonderful achievement in its self. For clients coming in regularly raving about their skin, and the improvements that they are regularly seeing is just so wonderful, so winning such an award was definitely a big pat on the back, and the cherry on the top!

Pretty in pink Anne O’Brien looks at makeup trends and the rise of concept stores, the majority of which are looking pretty in pink…


ot all salons and spas offer a colour or makeup collection for their clients. Traditionally those that do provide a collection, stay with the classic ‘no makeup’ look. They stock a mineral makeup with additional anti-ageing benefits and broad spectrum UV properties. Often makeup is seen as ‘a touch of colour’ after a facial and nothing more. As it happens these traditional business models are being challenged by the boom of makeup specialists and concept stores, including beauty rooms, as they begin to firmly establish themselves in most high street locations around the world. Once upon a time we really only had MAC, then followed Smashbox, Benefit, Mecca Maxima, and more. All offer products across a range of prices and professional service from qualified beauty experts. The talent is going to colour and the trend is gaining momentum. The dollars invested in makeup by millennials would probably make most of our eyes water. Ask any member of this cohort whether they use skin care and the majority will say no, but makeup is a completely different story. The millennial blush (epitomised by what was once called ‘salmon pink’) is everywhere to be seen on packaging, in store fit-outs and quite

literally, on their faces. Of the $1.8 trillion USD spent on retail per annum in the land of Trump, nearly 8% of that growth has been attributed to makeup. With e-commerce maturing in this category, the possibilities are endless if you are a contract manufacturer in this market. The key for makeup creatives is to stay ahead of the game (see some key spring tips from the runway and beyond in our ‘What’s Trending’ section). For those of us who remain in the ‘no makeup-makeup’ category, we need to be able to ensure that the canvas for all of these painted consumers is immaculate, to guarantee the masterpieces can be fully appreciated. This target audience is not a no-go-zone, but it is of little doubt that cleansers and exfoliants are these babes (who were born post-1980) most trusted BFF. In a lot of cases, the need for deep cleansing is ensuring the forecasted growth of this type of product into 2020. The only way these Instagram tutorials are going to lose their appeal in the foreseeable future is if we fall out of love with makeup and well, we all know this just isn’t going to happen. In the words of one formidable gram: “Girls wear makeup to impress boys? Really – do you think I own 78 MAC lipsticks to impress a boy who can’t tell the difference between Ruby Woo and Russian Red?” Enough said…

“The dollars invested in makeup by millennials would probably make our eyes water”

Do real men wear makeup? “When men look good they feel good. When we feel good; we do good. For everyone� - Alfred Tong, GQ. Social media has definitely made male makeup much more mainstream. Forecasts are that male-focused cosmetic counters could be a permanent feature of beauty sales within the next 10 years. A generation of men raised on selfies and carefully filtered social media profiles are much more open to a bit of foundation or concealer than their dads ever were so watch this space.

Many of us are familiar with the saying “you are what you eat”, especially in this day and age of wellness, yoga and clean eating. So it’s no surprise to see beauty trends heading towards completely organic ingredients, especially on oh-so addictive Instagram. That’s not to say exclusively natural, as products are always (mostly) going be a healthy mixture of science and nature. But on the other end of the spectrum, completely edible seems to be growing increasingly popular (or making a comeback, if you haven’t blanked out Jessica Simpsons’ controversial Dessert Beauty products way back in 2004). Whether it be edible or inclusive of beautiful natural ingredients, we’re all for the sweet things in life. Check out these deliciously flavoured and scrumptious products.

It’s the modern way to self-tan by simply misting onto skin, like sunlight would hit the body naturally. Formulated with intelligent shade technology, it lets you select your depth of tan by choosing when to wash off the tinted guide colour; from one to three hours, depending on your preference.

GRADUAL TAN PLUS SCULPT AND GLOW EVERYDAY MULTIACTIVE TONING LOTION The latest innovation in multi-benefit tanning, this product fits perfectly with our time-poor modern lives, whilst leaving limbs tighter and more defined. Containing advanced skincare benefits to tone, firm and moisturise skin, this multi-tasker will leave you healthily bronzed. Use daily to build up gradual colour and moisture in the skin, smoothing imperfections and leaving you feeling toned with gold.

INSTANT TAN FINISHING GLOSS For those special occasions where you need an HD skin finish, this latest quick-fix tan is an instant confidence boost. The light-weight formula is a true staple for lovers of a gleaming, high-shine glow, but can also be worked to give a more natural-looking sheen. Use it to highlight certain areas such as your shins, collarbones and shoulders, or buff in all over for a Kate Moss-like, Instagram-ready finish.

SELF TAN EXPRESS FACIAL SHEET MASK In a world-first move that fuses Korean skincare trends with self-tan, St.Tropez launches their game-changing tanning-infused sheet mask. Featuring a unique formula containing a serum infused with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, this mask truly is one of a kind, resulting in a streak-free, even finish. For a light sun-kissed glow, leave on for 5 minutes, 10 minutes for a medium golden glow, and 15 minutes for a deeper golden tan. Perfect for beginners and more seasoned tanners alike.

FRESH IDEAS This season Margaret Walsh of Observ looks at the power of the shower for creating those aha moments...


have recently been researching fresh ideas, with my nose in a book titled “Awake at the Wheel” by Mitch Ditkoff. As spring is the season of exploring fresh ideas, I am going to share some of Mitch’s concepts below. During the past 25 years, Mitch has asked more than 10,000 people where and when they got their best ideas. He received all kinds of answers, but the one that has always fascinated him is “the shower”. Now I can relate to this answer because I also get so many of my good work ideas there. And so, at the risk of overstating his case...

I HEREBY OFFER YOU 12 REASONS WHY THE SHOWER IS SO CONDUCIVE TO NEW IDEAS. 1. Showering signals ‘a new day’ or ‘new beginning.’ 2. You’re usually alone, with time to reflect. Interruptions are rare. 3. The rush of water creates a kind of ‘white noise’ that makes concentration easier. 4. Water is associated with ‘contemplation’ i.e. sitting near a river, lake, or ocean. 5. Showering is a ritual and creative people like to have little rituals to get their head in the right place. 6. There’s not a lot of judgment or analysis going on in a shower. 7. Showering wakes you up and makes you more alert 8. Showering is a relaxing and stress-free experience. With nothing to stress about, your mind is free to roam new territories. 9. It’s hard to check your iPhone in a shower. 132 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

10. Showering is easy. Not a lot of thinking is required to make it happen, which frees your mind to think about other things. 11. Water is a conduit for electricity — so it helps electrical impulses move more readily between right and left-brain hemispheres. 12. Water has been called the Universal Solvent, so it dissolves the clutter in our brains and then carries them out the drain. If we now take the first concept that showering signals a new beginning and apply it to skin analysis, what does the concept of new beginnings in-salon look like? Simply put, this new era is driven by your client/patient. We cannot perceive the changes that occur with our naked eye (excuse the pun) so we must harness measurement procedures to prove the ‘new beginnings’ to our clients. We must embrace technology and ‘shower’ our clients with this new knowledge. Now let us consider the value of skin analysis and technological advancements from a client’s point of view Clients Question; What are the long-term benefits of using such technology? Answer: Advanced Skin Analysis allows us, dermal and beauty therapists, to evaluate your skin from the epidermal/dermal junction upwards and to provide you with proof, via clinical photos, of the potential concerns before they become visible on your skin’s surface. In the long term, this means that you can choose to use products or undergo treatments in the clinic that prevent these concerns becoming reality. This will help you maintain and improve the condition of your skin for years

“Water helps electrical impulses move more readily between right and left-brain hemispheres” to come. Why waste time and money on products and treatments that will not fix your skin? Come into the clinic now and have an Advanced Skin Analysis appointment with the latest technology available in skin analysis.

Gather data and photograph the most useful aspects of the epidermis: melanin, extra vascular matting, oxidative stress, skin texture and sebum (lipid) levels. • Gather data pertaining to the client’s genetic history, nutrition and lifestyle, medical, and previous beauty therapy treatment history. • 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 accurately measure the client’s progression and results throughout the ensuing in-salon programmes. • Establish the cause of the client’s skin concern via data gathered in their consultation, and then relate the cause to the cells and systems that have been affected • Establish the basic majority skin type and present the client with the home care protocols necessary to maintain healthy skin. • Establish the client’s sun sensitivity. This will allow us to understand the skin’s susceptibility to pigmentation, and develop guidelines for protecting the skin. • Prescribe a 6-12 month treatment programme to improve all clients’ skin. By combining data from OBSERV, your evaluation report will help you develop a customised skin health program. It should include a home skin care regimen, Medispa treatments with nutritional and lifestyle choices best suited to the skin’s particular needs. Book in a 3 month follow-up skin analysis and evaluate the effectiveness of the skin care protocol you recommended. Both you and your client will be delighted with the results. Results-driven regimes ensure a win-win outcome for both parties so let us embrace them this spring. Will you be writing; “investigate a skin diagnostic device” on the shower wall this spring?

Drink a glass of warm lemon water.

Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get your body going. It’s like oil for the Tinman as it goes to work lubricating all of your different internal systems. You want the water to be warm so that it’s not a shock to your system first thing in the morning. The lemon will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals, and makes the water tastier. You can add a bit of honey to it as well if you want to cut down on some of the tartness.

Lyndall Mitchell & Shannah Kennedy, leaders in life and wellness education, share the importance of embracing the most significant part of the day


any of us don’t give much thought to our morning routines. The time between our initial wakeup and our arrival at the office is usually a blur, and our routine has become so secondnature that we never think to change it. But our morning tasks are much more significant than we’d like to admit, and bad habits tend to accumulate over time. The morning sets a tone for how the rest of the day is going to go, and even a handful of small mistakes can take its toll on your productivity in the afternoon and beyond. A morning routine that leads to productivity is in fact a science that you can implement in your own life. Here are our top five ways to start the day: 134 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

Eating breakfast is one of the healthiest morning routines you can have! It will help you jump start your metabolism, and give the appropriate energy you need to get on with the day.


In the morning when you open your eyes think of three things you are grateful for, which helps you see opportunities where you may have otherwise seen problems. Then take three deep breaths to relax your nervous system.


Get moving.

There are so many benefits to regular movement and getting your blood flowing first thing helps you have more energy for the rest of the day. Some people really like the mental win of crossing exercise off their to-do list before they begin the day. It can also make you 15% more productive by exercising in the morning.


Tomorrow starts today.

Start your morning routine the night before by writing out your “action list”: three to five things you need to do to move you closer to your goals. Writing them out simplifies your morning, giving you a clear headspace. Then you can set your alarm earlier than when your family wakes so you create the environment to reflect on your goals. You will be mentally and physically ready to take care of your kids, your clients, and yourself. While a great morning moment can feel pretty magical, there’s more to the perfectly productive day than mystical forces at work. By implementing these five easy changes, your morning routine will help to build emotional resilience, and bring calm and confidence into every moment. Lyndall Mitchell & Shannah Kennedy are founders of The Essentialists and co-authors of Chaos to Calm.

SPRING REJUVENATION Success Coach, Annabelle Matson speaks about specific strategies to create new positive changes in your life that last



he essence of Spring is all about growth, doing something new and leaving the old behind. As a Coach, many of the frustrations I hear from women is the ability to maintain positive habits. We start of feeling inspired about making a change, and then not long after the old habits can start creeping back in. If you recognise this pattern, follow the three steps below to create long lasting positive habits and sail into spring feeling your very best!


“It’s great to have a goal in mind and want to work towards better habits, but be mindful not to fall into “all or nothing thinking”

A very common pattern I see with women when deciding to integrate a new habit or behaviour into their lives, is setting the bar really high. For example, exercising five times a week or meditating every morning for 30 minutes, when they may not be doing anywhere near this currently.


This will probably work for a week or two, then life gets busy and we may only meditate once or forget exercise all together. This is the point where the change process can fall apart. Feelings of failure creep in and we give up on the goal we felt so pumped up about initially. It’s great to have a goal in mind and want to work towards better habits, but be mindful not to fall into “all or nothing thinking.” Set yourself up for success by setting a goal that’s manageable and a slight improvement from where you are now. For example, this could be one gym session and a lunchtime walk per week or meditation twice per week. It can be easily attained and you’ll be carried forward by the momentum that the accomplishment of this original goal creates. From there this feeling of accomplishment will motivate you to do more of this positive habit and you’ll then be able to layer in more goals. Remember: It’s the things we do regularly that have the


greatest impact on our results, not the things we do occasionally. Make small but consistent steps in the right direction and watch how much begins to shift in your life.

PREPARE FOR THE CHALLENGES Anytime you go through change, it’s inevitable there will be moments that feel so challenging that you just want to give up. You need to prepare for these ahead of time, so this one situation doesn’t pull you off track and cost you the whole change process. Have a clear plan and strategise about what you will do when things don’t go well or according to plan. For example, what are you going to do when you get negative feedback from a client? What will you do if you approach someone with a new idea and they shut you down? What’s going to be the action you take to ensure that this doesn’t turn into something that will hold you back? Who might you call? In that moment of potential weakness, rather than doing something that will likely set you back, you won’t need to think about it because the positive action step is just there for you to take. There is so much power in thinking through challenges!



There’s a really easy way to practically predict what your life will look like three months from now. Your life is the product of your activities from 90 days ago or put another way, your life in 90 days time is the product of what you are doing today. Consider this: how would you like to feel or what would you like to experience 90 days from now? Now reverse engineer it. What are the three most impactful actions you can take today to ensure that this becomes your reality? At least once a month, step back from the day-to-day activities and the “busyness” and see if you are making these three actions a priority in your life. Committing to each of these steps will see you making massive progress towards all the change you desire. Remember: be deliberate and persistent (but not perfect!).

HOW TO HAVE THE BEST SKIN OF YOUR LIFE Jenny Ringland speaks to WelleCo Nutritionist, Dr Simone Laubscher, PhD on her favourite foods for glowing skin



our skin. Dr Laubscher recommends a 2-3 day plant-based cleanse at the start of each season for peachy, glowing skin. “The skin is often referred to as the third kidney, as whatever the liver doesn’t want, it dumps onto the kidneys, and whatever the kidneys can’t handle, it will show on the skin. When you take THE SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Greens, your internal environment becomes more alkaline and your skin will be slightly more acidic. Ensuring the body is internally alkaline and balanced will have a positive effect on the skin .” Dr Laubscher, PhD

This prestige product will be available online & in-spa at More Than Skin Spa & Beauty from Friday 1st September 140 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

30 Day Challenge





our skin is the biggest organ in your body, so it makes sense that it would be affected by the food you eat. According to Dr Laubscher, the key to perennial glowing skin is to reduce consumption of inflammation-forming foods including sugar, dairy, alcohol and trans fat-filled fried foods. In turn, it’s essential to boost your intake of foods that support your overall digestive function, antioxidant status and detox pathways. Just like our digestive system benefits from a seasonal detox, so does

Check out their 30 Day Challenge on Instagram

AVOCADO TURMERIC A true superfood, turmeric has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits, great for your skin. Add one heaped teaspoon of organic turmeric per day to your diet - or even to your smoothies.

Is there anything this little green fruit can’t do? Avocado is high in essential fatty acids, so brilliant for your hair, skin and nails. Its fat content helps curb sugar cravings and makes for a nourishing face mask too.


CUCUMBER It turns out cucumber isn’t just for reducing those puffy eyes. Predominately made up of water, cucumbers are great for your digestion and detox pathways. They also contain vitamin C and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR Make this a pantry staple. It provides great digestive support along with its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Apple cider vinegar can also be used to reduce age spots and as a wonderful toner for your skin and hair when diluted with water.

TOMATOES Tomatoes are high in the antioxidant lycopene, which helps fight free radicals - especially good for sun damage. Lycopene is most easily absorbed when the tomatoes have been cooked, which releases it from the plant cells.

LINE-CAUGHT WILD SALMON & OILY FISH Full of essential long chain omega 3 fats, oily fish, such as salmon, reduces the body’s production of inflammatory substances, decreasing clogged pores and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

GARLIC Historically garlic was known as the cure-all remedy for everything, from the common cold to insomnia. It provides wonderful support to the liver and the bodies detox pathways, helping with your daily glow. It’s high in allicin which has anti-fungal, anti-ageing and skin smoothing benefits.

Flaxseed contains brilliant omega 3 to help keep your cell walls intact while reducing inflammation. The milled flaxseeds themselves are also great to balance blood sugar lows (helping you avoid sugar cravings) and they create the perfect fibre boost to keep your digestive system moving.

PAPAYA Not only is this tropical fruit delicious, it has amazing properties for our skin. Papaya is high in enzymes and vitamin C, which helps enhance your glow. It can be used topically or internally.

ALKALINE GLOW THE SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Formula contains barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa, spinach and spirulina: all nutritional green powerhouses that help to balance the acidity in your blood. When that balance is achieved, your skin holds moisture and your cells function properly, giving you that alkaline glow.

Oceans Ahead Wellness guru Liz Gapes gives you some great spring foodie tips to think about, pairing Kiwi tradition with Greek logic


D which, depending on whether you have been out in the sun to catch the seafood you’re eating, may or may not be required! Vitamin D is our light vitamin and is important for healthy bones because it aids calcium absorption. It is not found in many food types so topping up on this valuable vitamin by eating fish is a great idea. From a health perspective, oily fish contains more omega-3 and vitamin D so salmon really is the gold standard. If you are more focused on taste, nothing can beat fresh fish and commonly caught fish such as Snapper or Kahawai will also give you the same type of benefits (just slightly reduced). Internationally one of the most famously healthy daily food choices is known as the Mediterranean diet.

Usually drawn from the Greek island of Crete, which boasts higher-than-average life expectancy and low risk of heart disease. Not so different from our kiwi diets, the wise Greeks consume dark leafy vegetables, high-fibre beans, grains, lentils, fresh fruits, nuts, cheese, chicken, eggs, yoghurt, olive oil and plenty of omega-3s from fresh fish. They consume grilled or baked fish several times per week (which would probably be higher than our national average) and limit red meat to just a handful of portions a month (definitely lower than us!). My point is to enjoy the harvests of the season of your own land but also draw from the knowledge of older nations, i.e. eat fish more often like the Greeks, to maintain a healthy and happy life. Sea you out there!

he sizzle of the barbeque is one sure sign that spring is coming. Pair that with some freshly caught fish, cooked in butter and finished with a bit of lemon juice and you’ve got kiwi dinner perfection. Add a little bit of Greek logic and you’re on to one of the healthiest food choices of the season. Seafood has numerous unique health benefits, namely its omega-3 content and vitamin D. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, the word ‘essential’ indicates that your body cannot make omega-3 itself and it must therefore be sourced from your diet. Fish is a rich source of omega-3, plus it’s tasty! Omega-3 acts as an antioxidant, sweeping up all the damaging free radicals in your body, as well as fighting destructive inflammation. Omega-3 also works to keep your heart healthy by reducing the risk factors for heart disease, such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It does this by decreasing the amount of unhealthy ‘LDL cholesterol’ in your blood, which can clump together and block your arteries. Additionally seafood contains vitamin
