Headway | EDITOR’S LET TER
appy 2019 and welcome to our latest edition…and our much-anticipated Kiwi summer. As we put the final touches on this issue before Christmas, I couldn’t help but wonder what the New Year will bring. There’s nothing like a change in season to encourage a new outlook for mind, body and soul, and there are many features in this issue which I personally found inspiring. In particular, authors and wellbeing gurus, Shannah Kennedy and Lyndall Mitchell, have contributed a piece called ‘Joy’, focused on making happiness a daily habit and cultivating bliss in your life. I believe everyone can learn something from this article and I’m looking forward to incorporating their advice into my 2019 resolutions. Style is our big theme this issue: from our interviews with notable international Instagram icons – Larisa Love and Dani Lewis - through to the Headway team’s personal style muses, our favourite S/S19 catwalks looks from Eugene Souleiman, and the incredible hair and fashion featured at Kevin Murphy’s Future Love show in Las Vegas. We investigate how men’s streetwear has become one of the biggest stories in fashion and pop culture, showcase some stunning salon design interiors, and offer up our top 25 styling product favourites for the season. We also celebrate style in our various ‘What’s Trending’ features and include some beautiful work from the British Hairdressing Awards winners and finalists. November saw the annual Industry Awards, which recognises the best business, training and creative talent in our hair, beauty and barbering industries. Kitomba Salon & Spa Software, the NZARH and HITO joined forces to bring these awards to our industry, celebrating both individual and team success. Meet the winners in ‘Top Of Their Game’ on page 94. There’s also plenty of inspiration to be had in the beauty department too: summer skincare musthave’s, achieving salon and spa success for the year ahead, a fascinating feature from Dr Catherine Stone on topical vitamin C as a summer skin-saviour, and advice from our favourite wellbeing and skin health experts. Not to mention our showcase of the divine Sands Hotel & Spa in California. What we wouldn’t give to be luxuriating in those gorgeous surrounds right now. Now is an ideal time to reflect on 2018 and what we can do differently to enhance our business – and life - for the year ahead. We hope this issue helps set you off on the right foot and all you hair and beauty lovers find our features as inspiring as we do. Enjoy the glorious summer ahead!

ONE BR AND: A WORLD OF OIL-INFUSED BE AUT Y
Written by Teréze Taber
he inboxes of agony aunts around the world are bursting at the seams with emails from disgruntled, dissatisfied lovers. Relationships can be hard work, there’s no denying that. The analogy between having a happy relationship with your partner and what’s required for a successful, loving relationship with your hairdressing career is striking. Both require commitment, fun, passion, and the ability to resolve conflict as they arise. As we head into this busy, stressful time of year, let’s take a moment to reflect on why it’s important to take care of your significant other - your hairdressing career.
1. YOU FELL IN LOVE WHILE YOU WERE YOUNG It may have been right out of high school that you decided to become a hairstylist, and no doubt, there have been some ups and downs along the journey. But there was more to your choice to become a hairstylist than young love - in hair, you have found where you belong. “It’s always going to be there,” Nicole Brailey, Salon Manager at Vivo Northlands, Christchurch, says. “I know passionately in my heart and fingers
that I’ll always have hairdressing.” Work hard to remember why this was the career that you chose over all of your other choices. In hairdressing, you have found a career that brings you fulfillment and meaning - even when the going seems tough, you truly love that you get to change the lives of your clients everyday, making them feel confident, empowered and amazing.
2. A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP REQUIRES PASSION Just like in a relationship, a hairdressing career requires passion to keep the flame alive. What is passion, exactly? Passion is an energy that drives us forward, helping us to achieve the dreams and opportunities that we want to achieve. The great thing about passion, is that it creates pleasure in our work - instead of something feeling like a grind, all that hard work can feel fantastic. “I have been a hairstylist for 40 years,” says Peter Emery of Vivo Albert Street, Auckland. “But I still absolutely love it. What I’m passionate about, what motivates me, is to lead the way for my team, to show them what they can achieve.” So, how do we keep the passion alive? Hairdressing is a constantly changing and growing industry, providing new opportunity and outlets all the time. Tap into what interests you and go from there - perhaps it’s creative colour, or maybe it’s learning a new skill. Seamus Karam-Whalley of Vivo Anglesea, Hamilton, became interested in barbering 2 years ago, after more than a decade in the industry. “It made me feel like a beginner again. It was so exciting learning an entirely new skill!” The hairdressing industry
is constantly evolving, there are endless possibilities for new trends and techniques. Fuel your passion through education and a commitment to being the best you can be for your clients.
3. YOU WILL HAVE FIGHTS ALONG THE WAY - AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT When you spend a lot of time with a person, no matter how much you love them, you’re bound to run into conflict. Sometimes, those conflicts can become bigger disagreements which can take awhile to resolve. The same applies in your hairdressing career. As a hairstylist, you will almost certainly experience conflict, whether it’s within salon or within yourself. When this happens, it’s a great idea to step back from the situation and seek to gain perspective. It’s easy to let our emotions do the talking when we are feeling hurt or unheard, but a helpful mindfulness strategy in conflict is learning to respond, not react. What is mindfulness? Mindfulness means developing the ability to pause before responding to an emotional trigger. The reality is, we don’t have to act immediately
on our first emotions. Sometimes this might require a few deep breaths, otherwise it may mean we should remove ourselves politely from a situation to cool down. But ultimately, a way to remove ongoing conflict from our lives is to have this question at the heart of a response: what will make this situation better, long term? Hairdressing is a lifelong career and it’s important to make big-picture choices, even when it’s hard or painful in the moment.
AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER... Being a hairstylist means giving a lot of yourself, just like you do in your personal relationships. But if we tend to our hairdressing careers like we would a loving commitment outside of work, your career as a hairdresser could bring you a lifetime of happiness. And what article about love would be complete without a mushy quote from a love story? The Notebook’s Noah said it best when he said to Allie, “It’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. You and me - everyday.”

V E G A S Kevin Murphyâ€™s inspirational show in Sin City wows the hairdressing industry @love_kevin_murphy
Hair | FOCUS
Headway | PROMOTION
eld at the stunning ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, the KEVIN. MURPHY FUTURE.LOVE show was an awe-inspiring, live display of the latest trends in hair, presented by the KEVIN.MURPHY team of international masters, alongside Kevin Murphy himself. The team showcased looks inspired by retro trends from the ’50s and ’60s through a modern lens. Murphy’s inspiration behind the looks was to capture nostalgic details with the volume and shape, while capturing a more modern take on the style through the texture of the hair. Later in the show, the crowd was treated to a light-up dance performance by iLUMINATE, before the KEVIN.MURPHY Design Directors, Session Masters and Kevin took to the stage for live demonstrations on how to create the looks. The team shared their favourite styling, colouring, and cutting techniques, along with insider tips on innovative ways to use KEVIN. MURPHY products. “The theme and direction of our brand collection this year revolves around a theme 1 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
of progression rather than reinvention,” said Murphy. “If you think about major designers, they improve rather than completely reinvent. Brands don’t change, they evolve. I think that’s translating to hair and makeup. Clients are finding something that works for them and are evolving.” The show ended with an explosion of pastel pink confetti, followed by a buzzing reception complete with Photo Booth and claw machine filled with KEVIN.MURPHY goodies. The next day following the show, attendees participated in pre-selected breakout sessions taught by the masters and Kevin himself. Classes gave show-goers an intimate setting with the international team through specialised techniques in cutting, colour and styling. One of the most popular classes was SHOOT.ME, where attendees experienced a live photoshoot session from start to finish, hosted by Kevin Murphy together with his husband and photographer Luis Murphy, assisted on stage by Chris Bagôt. Everyone who attended agreed it was one of the most outstanding hair events ever, as these amazing photos can attest to. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 25

Instagram Icon Californian social media sensation, creative hair artist and Joico Ambassador, Larisa Love, talks to Headway about her love of colour, thinking outside the box and where social media is heading
What’s inspiring you in your work right now? I’ve been travelling a lot lately to places I’ve never been and experiencing unfamiliar environments. Therefore I’ve witnessed different cultures, architecture, colours and nature. It’s been inspiring to try new techniques and colours I wouldn’t have thought of before.
Do you have a favourite Joico colour recipe you can share with us? That’s very hard to say considering I have so many favourites. It all depends on my mood and my client. Currently, my favourite is chestnut browns. I love the richness of the tones, so I’ve been using lots of NG series lately from LumiShine.
As a Joico Brand Ambassador, what do you love about working with Joico colour? I used Joico before I became their brand ambassador so it was a perfect fit. I stand 100% behind the line and love the results it gives me. I also love working with all the people from Joico, which makes my ambassadorship extra special.
How would you describe your hairdressing aesthetic? I tend to break rules and go outside the box when it comes to formulations and techniques. As long as I have a vision, I will execute it in a manner that works, and the results never disappoint. What are you obsessed with right now in terms of colour and which trends are coming through currently? Coppers, red, gold and rich brown tones. I’m loving the warmness and shine these tones give. Current trends are becoming very effortlessly chic with minimal styling. What has been your biggest challenge as a colourist to date? Trying to find the newest technique that is better than the last one created. Although it may be a challenge, it pushes me to become the best artist I can possibly be. You have a huge social media following. How do you think this has helped your brand? Social media
has helped my brand tremendously. It has allowed me to showcase my work to hundreds and thousands of people and given me the platform to teach all over the world, while becoming friends with some of the most iconic talent from this industry. Where do you see social media heading?I see social media becoming a platform for thousands of artists to become the artist they authentically want to be. It allows us to be individuals and make our work stand out from the rest. It will also become a much more competitive platform, make you think outside the box on how to make your brand stand out from the rest. What has been your biggest career highlight so far? I have been very blessed in my career at a young age. Four years in, I started educating and became the first and only brand ambassador for CosmoProf. I’ve travelled worldwide and have a platform to showcase my techniques. The most recent highlight has been becoming Brand Ambassador for Joico, touring and working on incredible shoots with the company. I’m so excited to see what’s in store for the future, it’s only the beginning!

P I L G R I M A G E TO P A R M A Beâ€™s co-founder and Managing Director, Ryland Wood, led 24 Kiwis on a pilgrimage to Davinesâ€™ mecca in Northern Italy. He reports back from the frontline @be.sustainable | 28 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
Hair | FOCUS
omething magical happens when a group of likeminded people gather to celebrate what they love. World Wide Hair Tour (WWHT) is Davines’ global community get-together. Held once a year or so, WWHT is usually set in a big city like London, Paris or Los Angeles. For WWHT 2018, we voyaged to the small Italian city of Parma to celebrate
the launch of Davines’ beautiful new headquarters, The Village. Dubbed “the happiness factory”, The Village is Davines’ new HQ, lab, production and education facility. It was built and runs with minimal environmental impact for maximum wellbeing; a place where people, the environment and the community come first. A record 24 Kiwis (plus a baby) set off
for WWHT 2018. We arrived in Parma during an unseasonably hot late-spring day, checking in at the 800 year-old Palazzo Della Rosa Pratti. Our first of many adventures was our trip to The Davines Village. We all fell in love and tried to figure out how we could each pack up our NZ lives and move there. We then headed back into the city for a guided tour of an art exhibition that Davines founder, Davide Bollati, funded and curated: an exploration of life, destruction and rebirth called The Third Day (Il Terzo Giorno). After a gorgeous team NZ dinner, the city of Parma sprung to life, with dancers suspended upon the sides of buildings, live music filling the warm air, street performances and projection mapping, with every shop, museum and Davines salon open. We wandered the streets all night amongst the stilts and magic. The next day’s surprise was a private lunch and pool party at Davide Bollati’s house, itself another embodiment of style and sustainability. In the sweltering heat, us Kiwi’s didn’t need to be asked twice to jump into the pool. That night was the official Welcome Dinner for all 3,500 WWHT guests. The food was magnificent - 35 mobile restaurants had been brought down from Milan to cater for us, and oh my was it delicious! We were blessed with an array of truly inspirational hairdressing shows, each only eight-minutes long; from Anna Pacitto (Canada), Candice McKay (South Africa), Huub Eysink (The Netherlands), James Abu-Ulba (Canada), Jani Beemster (The Netherlands), Jesus Oliver (UK), Sal Misseri (USA) and Vincent Mourault (France). The following days were a smorgasbord of hair shows. Allilon, the London-based auteurs of new-Sassoon hair architecture, collaborated live on stage with fire-painter Steven Spazuk. Tim Hartley, Davines’ previous Artistic Director, treated us to three separate collections. The last World Style Contest winner, Canadian Maggie Seemaan, presented her new collection. Brian Suhr and Kirsten Demant sweetly celebrated the Danish happiness concept of Hygge. I’d never seen someone create a waterwave quiff in less than a minute HEADWAY.NET.NZ 29

using only a comb and a hairdryer until this moment. The top 20 World Style Contest (WSC) finalists from across the globe recreated their photographic entries live on stage. Annie Ankervik from Sweden claimed this year’s title with her desert-inspired creation and will have her own dedicated show at next year’s WWHT. Davines Artistic Director Angelo Seminara’s first show was something utterly unexpected. Together with Davines, he’d created a hair education feature film set in Turkey’s Cappadocia. He styled models from a hot air balloon basket, flying hundreds of metres over rock formations in the dawn light. On the ground, in canyons, caves and
“He styled models from a hot air balloon, hundreds of metres over rock formations in the dawn light”
deserts, he showed us through a mindblowing array of techniques and styles to awestruck applause. His second show was a live creative display. We witnessed electrostatic neon hair flocking onto a deconstructed shark-fin French roll, and rainbow hair “intestines” several metres long being stretched out and pinned together by an army of assistants.

BOSS HAIR GROUP Sharleen Singh uncovers a unique salon vibe of 80s glam rock, Studio 54 fashion and 90s supermodel-chic in Chicago, USA
ibe is everything when it comes to award-winning colourist John Blue’s newly opened BOSS HAIR GROUP. Featuring geometric lines, bold colour and a handpicked team of stylists, John shares his story behind this true salon sanctuary. Why did you decide to open BOSS HAIR GROUP? I opened up BOSS HAIR GROUP because I was tired of working towards someone else’s future and retirement. I was becoming burnt-out and felt as if I worked in a factory. I wanted to go back to a time when the salon experience was more intimate and personal, like when I started 20 years ago. Creating a
chill and inviting vibe was just as important. I decided on the name BOSS because I wanted every co-worker and client to feel a sense of ownership. Each talented style and colour BOSS is an expert in their chosen craft. BOSS can mean so many different things to so many people. Tell us about the décor. What inspired you? I wanted to create a scene that I would thrive in, as well as my staff. For so long, we’ve been seeing the mundane white, minimalistic canvas that so many salons and boutiques have. I love the idea of making a statement and the minute you walk in, you can feel it. I was always drawn to David Bowie’s personal style. His iconic androgynous fashion choices were
bold and expressive. The design of the space was based off of the lightning bolt painted on his face from one of his album covers. That, mixed with Andy Warhol’s “Factory”, also played into my vision - a studio space that would bring many creative minds to meet. Throw in a little Studio 54 glam with some 90s supermodel chic and you’ve got BOSS! How important was it to BOSS HAIR GROUP to become a sustainable salon? My main focus was to be 100% cruelty-free, and then it just spiralled from there. After learning that the beauty industry accounts for nearly a third of landfill waste, I knew I had to do something, even if it was small. We’ve partnered with Green Circle Salons and we recycle over 90% of salon waste. We recycle foil, colour tubes, plastic packaging, hair colour and even hair! Every product we use, even down to our cleaning supplies, are sustainable and ecofriendly.
“I love the idea of making a statement, and the minute you walk in, you can feel it”
Which colour/styling products do you use? We carry a variety of hair colours, but we predominately use Keune Cosmetics because the coverage, shine and longevity are outstanding. We also carry the Australian line, Original Mineral (O&M), which is an ammonia-free, PPD-free and resorcinol-free hair colour. This is a great alternative for people with allergies and sensitivity to colour. Retail-wise, we carry REF of Sweden and Oway. Both these lines are vegan and contain certified organic ingredients. They perform just as brilliantly as they smell. In addition, BOSS also has an Organic Refill Club where you can bring back your Oway glass bottle packaging and we will refill your shampoo or conditioner. This is great because there is no waste, therefore reducing your carbon footprint on the environment.

I N S PI R ATI O N Drawing inspiration from the beautiful coastline of Western Australia, Kevin Murphy’s Middle Island collection features effortless, textured hair, illuminated by warm, sun-kissed tones. With hair showcasing simplicity and minimalism, sequins, frills and shimmer were set against white sand dunes to evoke luxurious beach hair blended seamlessly with the beauty of the wilderness. The team were immersed in a magical bushland setting nestled behind the sand dunes at Bandy Creek, where they styled perfectly imperfect hair to capture natural-born texture and shimmering hues in true KEVIN.MURPHY heritage. “Middle Island was inspired by the location it was set in,” says Murphy. “The picture perfect town of Esperance showcases the beauty of my homeland, and allowed us to create our brand’s signature beachy hair in a familiar setting.”

Having a variation of team members come and go gives me so much appreciation for the good people I do have in the Zaibatsu family. Our industry is so diverse on so many levels.

Yes, I do tend to have a method. Iâ€™m extremely introverted in my thought process and I keep a lot internalised, but

I am constantly thinking ahead, forever hanging pictures and scribbling notes! This year we shot eleven styles for Wella Trend Vision and I also created my own collection. This was all in three days, so my mind was crazy, but I got through it okay…with notes everywhere! How do you think your hairdressing style has evolved over the years? I would like to think I have gradually developed my skills, especially when I look back on my photographic work. Looking at my very first Wella Trend Vision entry, it actually made me laugh a little. I had my model clothed in a bath! I do love the fact that I put so much emphasis on the set though. I’ve met incredible people within the New Zealand hairdressing industry that work with me to achieve the best results and I love that my work is consistent here. What have been some of the major highlights of your career? I have been a part of the Sebastian Creative Team, which has enabled me to work on some amazing projects, such as opening a prominent salon in Bangalore, India - an amazing experience! I have most recently travelled around New Zealand on an education trip for an exciting new colour launch from Wella, which we are all very excited about! However, the top moment (hands-down) would be winning the New Zealand Salon Team Award at the Wella Trend Vision 2017 and 2018 Awards and having the opportunity to travel to Barcelona. I felt like an apprentice again, being part of a global event, watching everything and soaking it all in. It was so refreshing to feel like I was on this massive learning platform.
What’s inspiring you in your work currently? I love editorial work, so I’m really excited for next year’s calendar photoshoots. I can’t wait! If you could direct the hair for any designer’s runway show who would you choose? Martin Margiela for sure. What are your hero Wella products right now? I love Wellaplex - it’s a beautiful product that delivers a great result whilst reducing damage for my clients with coloured hair. My number one styling product is EIMI Dry Me by Wella Professionals. It creates volume and texture all in one, a god-send! Which colours are you enjoying creating and playing with this season? I am using a lot of Wella Illumina at the moment. It is super-soft and the application is seamless. We are doing a lot of ‘break the base’ work insalon using this product - with 1.9% for 5 minutes. It finishes foil work effortlessly.
experienced it. I would say that, sadly, my career has always come first, and being so busy I feel as if my life has gone past in a flash. All of a sudden I have these beautiful children that are now 10! I am so grateful that my life is full, and I am there as much as possible – despite busy schedules! I have reached a point where the salon doesn’t rely on me personally, which is a great feeling. It means I get to appreciate and enjoy everything so much more. I would say that my main learning is being able to ask for help. Being open with my team and involving them in the business makes them accountable for its growth, thus building a tighter unit and an impressive work ethic. My personality has never wanted to be the ‘star of the show’ and I am most happy when observing from the background. I think this has helped me to build respect with peers and a great relationship with my team.
What is the most important thing you’ve learnt during your career? I think I could write a book! You name it and I have
What do you think is your greatest strength as a hairdresser? Definitely experience. I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients and on some brilliant shoots over the years. What does success mean to you? Success to me is a thriving business, a happy team and a respectable work/ life balance. I am very fortunate and so grateful to have all three!
Jaimee’s most recent Trend Vision work and the team from Zaibatsu Hair Art.
he Jil Sander S/S19 collection was compiled of timeless, minimal shapes and enlarged, oversized and crisp tailoring. To contrast this, Eugene Souleiman, ghd Fashion Week Ambassador, toned down the sharp lines in the clothing and concentrated on creating a look that was neither uptight nor stiff. “The only ‘sharp’ element is the parting of the hair” says Eugene. “This works to draw out the lines in the designs without distracting from what are incredible outfits”. For Souleiman, nature was the inspiration the look inspired by “the strength of something minimal combined with the softness of nature, as if the hair is being tamed and nature is trying to fight it.” Souleiman described the look as “not hairdresser hair” due to the understated, almost messy texture; an effortless, “two day-old” hairstyle that put the fashion front and centre.
Get The Look
As ghd Fashion Week Ambassador, Eugene Souleiman shares some of his favourite looks from the S/S19 collections
For the ream of androgynous, school-boy styles, Eugene created a blunt, sharp cut. This provided a baseline to introduce texture into the hair. This “Etonian looking” hair was given a satin boost by running the ghd platinum+ styler through the hair to create soft bends and kinks. For those with longer locks, hair was left in its natural state, enhanced by twisting the hair and using the ghd air® hairdryer to add heat and seal loose bends. For the Afro-textured hair, Eugene wanted to achieve a slicked-back, braided look. He began by blow-drying hair with the ghd air®hairdryer and smoothing the hair, ready for braiding with Wella Professionals’ EIMI Cocktail Me. This created a malleable material from the hair for sleek but fully textured braids to surround the crown of each of the models.
NATURALLY POLISHED PERFECTION
sing the ghd Platinum+ styler for the Jeremy Scott show allowed Eugene to perfect the invisible but technical subtlety in texture he was aiming for. “What we developed is a way of styling hair from the inside, from the underneath, hidden volume,” he says. “You can’t really see how it’s done. It looks like the hair was naturally like that, even though hair’s not naturally like that. We’re tonging the insides of the hair to support the rest of the hair to give it width, volume and lightness.”
Hair | FOCUS
Get The Look “For the Afro hair, I simply ran the ghd platinum+ styler over the hair and gently pressed it to create glass-like shine,” says Souleiman. “For some of the other girls, I added volume at the root and a natural yet dishevelled texture through the ends using the ghd air and ghd diffuser, working in kinks and bends using the ghd curve classic curl tong. This again kept the shine in the hair, but also created a very understated and subtle finish. I believe that true craftsmanship should be invisible. I want the hair to honour the collection; it’s a new glamour, a different kind of glamour…one that harks back to the 90s but is very current, very now.”
ion Lee’s collection had a compartmentalised feel with inspiration drawn from the world of wearable but aspirational fashion. In a wardrobe of blushed pink, chic blacks and glamorous reds, these hairstyles evoked a paradoxical but complimentary toughness. Souleiman created a look that took ‘the lady out of the clothes’ by adding tension and attitude with hidden braids that were subtly but intentionally placed throughout. The hair was “not masculine, just tougher,” says Souleiman. “The intention is stronger, more assertive, slightly aggressive. It’s not a pretty ponytail, there’s nothing dainty about this look.” The braids existed to add texture and volume to hair but weren’t placed to be visible to the naked eye.
Get The Look To create this new take on minimalism and texture, Souleiman used Wella’s EIMI Styling range, choosing Cocktail Me, a heavy crafting oil and pairing it with Oil Spritz for shine and Ocean Spritz for texture. He then used the ghd Curve Creative Wand to add movement to the look, focusing on kinks and bends to help frame the face. The ghd Platinum+ styler created rigidity to the up-do’s and add body where needed. Souleiman used his fingers to scrape the hair back in a loose and informal way, then secured with added heat using the ghd air hairdryer.

SALON SUCCESS THROUGH CONSULTATION
eing a hairdresser can be stressful when you’re managing client expectations. Likewise, staying motivated can be a daily challenge. You’re dealing with a variety of people, some clients transferring their own anxiety onto you, due to personal issues and low self-esteem. How do we navigate our way through the changing emotions of our clients, whilst remaining calm, @ s t conserving energy and most da i l r i o _ h a i r s t y importantly, maintaining our professionalism at all times? The answer is to have support, training and guidance on how to best deal with these issues from the very start of your service, which is in the consultation process. By providing tools to make uncomfortable situations more comfortable, you'll have the confidence to grow and thrive every day with your clients. Firstly, let’s look at ourselves! Be open to change. Have a growth mindset. This will ultimately put you in a better position to tackle situations that are challenging. If you are in a fixed mindset, you'll be annoyed, come up with 44 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
excuses and blame others. Ditch the attitude! Attitude sits in the negative space and manifests into traits such as self-pity, neglect, indifference, indecision, doubt, worry, over-caution, pessimism, closed-mindedness and complaining. We don’t need these around us or transferred onto our guests. Manage your emotions. How you feel within yourself is not about other people, it’s about you! Take time to breathe deeply and spend time on yourself when not at work. If you can control your emotions, you can change your life. Let’s look at the steps to take within the consultation process. • Always speak with your client face-to-face. Sit on their level to create an honest, open conversation. • Ask your client to flip their hair upside down then back again and watch how they style their hair to give you clues as to what is most important to them. • Take a before photo of your client from the front, profile and back. This helps to show them how they look from all angles. • Key questions to ask include: What is our restriction with your length? Ask them to show you. Where would you like me to slim your body, neck, and face? How much shape are you open to having around your face? This relates to wings, fringe, long fringe, no fringe. How are you feeling about yourself today? This gives you an idea if the big
“change” they want is a good idea, especially if they are not in a good head space. How do you feel about your hair today? e.g. want change, happy with it, or undecided. What’s your daily home hair maintenance procedure and how much time do you spend on your hair? How often do you visit the salon for maintenance. What is your budget today? Finally, you can agree on the services performed. Have them write down exactly what they understand will be done and both sign off on the agreement. Therefore, you are both held accountable to the services agreed upon and the end result should be a happy and positive outcome for all. I have used this approach for over eight years now with lots of success. The consultation process has been made extremely easy to perform with the new APP created by Timely using my diagnostic forms. Once downloaded, you can use a form for your guest and store the document to their details, regardless whether you use Timely or not. With this, you are saying to your clientele, “I am committed to a very honest and personal service” which ultimately means the client will return feeling safe and in good hands, which can only be a good thing for your business.

New year, new ‘do and we’re ourselves. loving the variety of styles you can achieve with ‘the wet look’ 6
here’s something so mysterious and intriguing about the slicked-back wet look. Maybe she just went swimming? Maybe she ran out of dry shampoo? Who knows? We dig it. But there is so much more to this look than simply looking, well, wet. We’ve seen slicked-back ponytails at Off-White, sleek, slippery braids at Alexander McQueen, ballerina bun-sleek at Ralph & Russo and messy damp waves at Eudon Choi. As if sweeping their hair back after a long night of partying (or just being caught in the rain), the hairstyles at Roberto Cavalli focused on wet-look elevation at the roots and a raw, wild texture through the lengths. Perhaps our favourite is the look Kaia Gerber rocked in the Coach S/S18 show, with a super-messy half-up, half-down hairstyle. Instead of making the wet-look hair super-sleek, Coach went for a "grungy, bedhead, downtown, 1970s rock 'n' roll vibe," according to Redken Global Creative Director, Guido Palau. We also love keeping only the roots slick, combed back into dry, shiny waves. Consider it this year's chic substitution for a ponytail. At Preen, Eugene Souleiman went for ‘the new wet look’. “The inspiration is sea anemones", says Souleiman. "We wanted the girls to look like they’re in water, with their hair otherworldly, like it’s floating with zero gravity." Instead of seemingly drenched locks, runway stylist Justine Marjan is a fan of models' hair looking like it is halfway dry. "The key to this look is putting in the work with your natural hair texture," she says. “Using mousse and hair spray will help achieve an almost sweaty, dirty hairstyle, as if you are coming off the beach or from a safari." 54 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

Highlights compared to a normal highlight service? It doesn’t take as much time simple techniques for big results. It’s a good way for clients to refresh their colour in between services also. What response are you getting from clients who have experienced the new Instant Highlights service? They’re loving it! Lots of clients who usually have a simple root touch-up are now adding Instant Highlights to their services. It’s been a big hit with our Balayage clients to freshen up their colour. It’s also been popular with young teenage girls who are just starting their colour journey.
What do each of the Rodney Wayne Instant Highlights services offer - Contour, Soft Highlights and Balayage? Balayage Refresh is great for clients whose colour needs a kick between services. Contour is an ideal way to frame the face, customised to all clients, to give off depth and lightness in the areas that are lacking. Soft highlights are great for most people - they can break up a colour and complete a look. It also gives that beautiful sunkissed look everyone wants.

Rodney Wayne Albany, Auckland What do you love about the new Rodney Wayne Instant Highlights service? The amount of colour and change you can introduce into a person’s hair with a small amount of foils and a shortened amount of time.

Everyone is really impressed with how much it can lighten their hair in the 10 minute processing time! What do each of the Rodney Wayne Instant Highlights services offer - Contour, Soft Highlights and Balayage? Contour adds lightness around the face to accentuate features. We can make a face look longer or shorter, bring attention to the eyes or cheek bones or make a neck look longer. Soft highlights will break up all over colour beautifully. Balayage Refresh is all in the name. Perfect if your existing Balayage is looking good but you want some pieces up higher or sun-kissed, brighter pieces through the ends. Why is L’Oréal Professionnel Smartbond included in the Rodney Wayne Instant Highlights service? Smartbond protects the bonds in the hair that keep it strong and hold everything together. My question is, if you have a product that protects against these damages, why wouldn’t you include it?
MODEL MUSES Rodney Wayne chose three New Zealand social media influencers as their models for the Instant Highlights campaign. Kristina McNabb, Kobi Bracken and Kristen Gou. Each of these influencers has brought their own unique quality to the campaign and we love their individual style and inspirational Insta’s. Be sure to check them out. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 57

Future Beauty Rodney Wayne introduces the newest digital technology set to revolutionise the salon experience. @rodneywayneofficial
iiq Digital and Rodney Wayne have just recently announced the global launch of revolutionary Piiq Pod mirror technology. Co-created by award-winning stylist and Rodney Wayne Creative Director, Richard Kavanagh, the Piiq Pod is a world-first. This digital mirror, with embedded consultation software, offers a built-in camera and integrated beauty lighting. It empowers the stylist to provide a unique customer experience, allowing them to better understand and realise client hair goals. “This is a total gamechanger,” enthuses Richard Kavanagh. “It’s a smart mirror for a smarter consultation and will totally transform the salon experience.” The system uses facial recognition to conduct a face shape analysis in order to identify celebrities with a similar face shape. It then presents prospective styles
and cuts to suit the shape of the client’s face. The system also records a colour history and provides suggestions for the client’s ideal hair regime. The Piiq mirror substitutes the usual reflective glass with a reflective digital interface. Piiq allows you to discover more about unique hair requirements and even allows clients to share a selfie of their new look. You can order products right from the pod, to take home from the salon or have delivered to your home or office. Currently, Piiq consultations are now being booked at Rodney Wayne Fort Street in Auckland. Or you can pop in and take a peek at one of the pods in action. Piiq is piloting exclusively at Rodney Wayne Fort Street, Rodney Wayne Albany, Rodney Wayne Sylvia Park, as well as Rodney Wayne Manners in Wellington and Rodney Wayne Riccarton in Christchurch, before rolling out to salons around the world later in 2019.

PROJECT (VIVO) RUNWAY Tereze Taber talks about why fashion and fun is essential to cultivating creativity @VIVOHAIRANDBEAUTY
ver the last eight years James Carlisle and Lynden Mason, coowners of Vivo Hair & Beauty, have worked with thousands of creative people as they have grown their body of 80 salons. “We have seen that in order for our staff to fuel their passion for hairdressing, they have to be continuously growing, pushing and developing their skills and talents,” says Lynden. Essential to this culture of creativity is the Vivo Annual Awards Night. Every staff member, whether apprentice or a regional manager, are given the red carpet treatment. Firstly, they're flown from around the country to Auckland where they experience a glamorous night of fun, food and of course, fashion - including a fabulous runway show featuring creations exclusively from Vivo hairstylists.
This year, the evening comprised a sit-down, three-course meal at the Vodafone Events Centre, hosted by standup comedian Ben Hurley. “The event takes at least six months of planning,” says Rebecca Smith, National Marketing Manager, listing off a few staggering statistics. “In 2018, we paid for 327 flights from around New Zealand, and booked out three whole hotels in Auckland. We had five shuttles on continuous loop going back and forth to the venue.” But despite the logistics and cost, the Vivo Annual Awards is vital, says Managing Director, James. “The Awards night is a chance to celebrate all that is amazing about our industry. It's a celebration of our creativity, our passion and our love for what we do.” The runway this year saw hair and fashion looks inspired by a ‘Mythical
“The runway this year saw hair and fashion looks inspired by a Mythical Creatures theme”
Creatures’ theme. With everything from Medusa heads to mermaid tresses, the runway was lit up with vibrant colour and creative texture, impressive shape and innovative form. Particularly inspiring was Vivo Mt Eden’s ‘The Phoenix’, which took home the top prize. Led by Mt Eden Salon Manager, Bethany Woods, the team undertook an extensive process to perfect the vision. Lauren Hignett, senior stylist, describes the technique used to make the headdress. “Firstly, we gathered hair from the salon, bleaching and colouring it with golds and reds to make the ‘feathers’. Next, we dried the pieces and shredded them onto baking paper, using hairspray to create stiffness, then ironed it flat between two sheets. We created layers of our feathers by repeating this process.” Lastly, the feathers were attached by a braided extension sewn together, creating the halo of Phoenix feathers. The result was a glorious creation that Bethany enhanced with a standout runway dance performance. We can’t wait to see what our incredibly creative, talented Vivo staff come up with for the next Vivo Annual Awards Runway Show!

@STREETSTYLEGALLERY Style is seen across all ages and genders. It is not exclusive or inhibitive. More than anything it’s an attitude. Like beauty, it’s all in the eye of the beholder.
AGELESS STYLE With record numbers of models aged 50+ at SS/19 shows, Headway applauds this overdue celebration of ageless style. Anne O’Brien salutes some of our favourite grand dames
nyone that knows me knows that I’m someone who celebrates birthdays. I don’t regret one bit getting a year older, as what’s the alternative? Not getting a year older? Ageing is a privilege that many are denied, so I believe each birthday should be a joy. With so many amazing role models aged 60, 70 and 80+, it is easy to be inspired if we want to be. When thinking of who would be the poster girl for celebrating women of a ‘certain age’ (she would hate that phrase I’d imagine!), the extraordinary Helen Mirren was first on the list. Her famous quote where she says the advice she would have given her younger self would have been to say “fuck off” more, and stop being so “bloody polite”, is the stuff interview legends are made of. Mirren is her own person and therefore the very essence of style, which is so personal when we allow it to be. She stands on the podium of women who look like they are comfortable in their own skin, and perhaps this is the reason why she is so appealing. Whatever ‘it’ is, she’s got it and it’s ageless.

The launch event, held in the iconic Tatler bar in Darlinghurst, aimed to raise awareness with consumers, asking them to

question, think and talk about society’s seemingly impossible pressures and unrealistic standards of beauty: the hype, the stereotype, the Photoshop dream. Guests at the 'Don't Buy It' event were treated to an interactive experience that featured quirky installations and powerful messaging. Brand founder, Garth Gauvin, detailed the history of the brand and the inspiration behind their campaign, before offering personal styling sessions by evo ambassadors Jules Tognini, Motley Crew, Grant Norton and Nicole Kae in the aptly named ‘Mane Control Room’. Just as evo’s first brand campaign in 2005 featured a pile of mud, guaranteeing a “complete lack of miracle cures, exotic dirt, special herbs, enzymes and life-giving tonics”, ‘Don’t Buy It’ is part of evo’s mission to ‘save ordinary humans from themselves’ at the core.

MINUTES WITH JASON DAVIES The A.DO salon owner and Goldwell and KMS NZ Ambassador shares his secrets to salon success and top colour and product picks for the season
What’s the philosophy behind A.DO? Our philosophy rests upon a fusion of three distinct elements. Firstly, to develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of our valued client. Secondly, the delivery of up–to-date and precise technical know-how, client communication and expertise. Thirdly, an awareness and infusion of fashionforward, international hair trends within the service. These elements working together harmoniously, channelled into each and every A.DO client, ensures greater quality control and a very satisfied client leaving our salon. How did it feel to be nominated for Best Salon Design 2018 at this year’s Hair Expo Awards? We were ecstatic about it and what made it more special was that our salon was
the only New Zealand salon nominated for this prestigious award out of 10 salons within Australasia. What was your inspiration for A.DO’s design aesthetic? The foundation of our salon aesthetic is ‘European eco-industrial’, a highlyfunctional, warm and inviting space for clients and stylists alike, with living moss walls from Scandinavia (the ‘lungs’ of the salon, designed to purify the air) infused with subtle steam-punk signature hints of David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick cunningly woven in. As an Ambassador for Goldwell and KMS, what do you love most about these brands and their product/colour offerings? I love that both product lines offer an incredibly wide product choice.

Also, Goldwell’s ammonia-free colour, Nectaya, has been a huge revelation to us all – it’s amazing! What are your top five product picks currently? KMS Molding Paste is incredibly versatile, giving definitive texture that is still moveable and lightweight. I love Goldwell Glamour Whip, a wonderfully creamy and rich mousse for optimal volume without any stickiness. KMS Anti-Humidity Spray is a super-lightweight finishing spray which provides unparalleled ultra-high gloss and 24 hour weather protection for sleeker looks. Goldwell Kerasilk Control Shampoo is a luxurious cleanser which contains liquid silk infused with keratin, controlling frizzy or unruly hair, and is a hot favourite with our clients. Also, KMS Style Colour in Dusky Blonde enables you to create that ‘on the spot’ ombré/ Balayage effect on your hair within a matter of seconds, that you can easily shampoo out the next day. performance colour, care and styling ranges result in a comprehensive portfolio of products which effortlessly caters for all clients. Whether you are wanting to achieve high sheen, eyepopping vibrant colour, frizz-free curl definition, seamlessly sleek, smooth tresses, or amplified volume on fine hair, it’s all here. Absolutely nothing has been left out for any client. What does your team enjoy most about working with Goldwell colour? Firstly, it’s a highly logical colour system, easy to use, easy to mix, spreads easily and evenly and secondly, oh my god, the shine, glorious shine, coupled with outstanding hair condition! All of the lighteners remain supple throughout the application process, which means the hair is kept in superior condition once it has processed.

TOSCANI & BLOW BAR Hair meets cocktail bar in this New York-style concept salon
SALON OWNER: Elise Flowers INTERIOR DESIGN: Birdblack Design @birdblackdesign BUILDER: Souter Built SALON FURNITURE: Comfortel Furniture PHOTOGR APHY: Hannah Ladic Photography
wo words: Blow Bar. The design of this new salon space lends itself to the first ever Blow Bar in Wollongong, NSW. The concept, which stems from New York, marries the worlds of both hairdressing and cocktail bar. Having been in business for over 20 years, owner Elise Flowers recently purchased a new shopfront which was then to be converted into a hair salon and cocktail bar. The key selling point is to be able to sit at the bar while you get your hair styled. Brought to life by Birdblack Design, the salon space is modern in appearance with elements of black and brass throughout the hair salon interior. The concept was to locate a cocktail bar at the rear of the building so that when entering through the front door, the eye is drawn through the space towards the bar. Clients can sip on a martini or glass of bubbles and graze on bespoke cheese platters, all while getting a blow wave. The showcase within the salon is the Blow Bar itself, with a custom-made, pastel pink concrete benchtop. The remaining finishes were selected with budget in mind. All of the joinery is also custom-made, using a combination of man-made timbers and marble-look laminates to give a luxurious finish. The black and brass highlights are incorporated into all of the
light fittings, joinery details and the salon furniture and equipment. “It needed to have a high-end aesthetic but without the cost factor associated,” says Elise Flowers. Comfortel’s Hannah Salon Chairs and Blast Brass Salon Footrests have been combined with black, slim-line wall-leaning mirrors on a ledge to create a bench, while millennial pink wallpaper is the perfect backdrop. The Kelli Electric Reclining Washlounge completes the look within the central wash area. “It was easy to select from the new ranges that Comfortel provided,” says Elise. “They had a great variation of chairs and accessories that complement the overall style and theme we had designed. It was even better to learn that they now offered modern finishes like matte black and brass. We were able to utilise a combination of both in our fit-out.” Thinking about adding a bar or food to your salon? What you need to know… • Always check your local Liquor Licensing Act regulations. In most states of Australia and in New Zealand, low-risk businesses (like hair salons) allow alcohol to be served after a certain time to a certain value. Research these regulations. • If you decide to serve food, Food Regulations will need to be considered. • Have fun with the design. Opt for high bar stools and really get inspired by creative hospitality interiors. • Don’t forget your core business! Make sure clients are comfortable and hair salon priorities are not left behind. • Remember the hair! We know hair can get everywhere, so consider placement and timing of food and drinks while catering to clients.

Style – a noun, a verb, a combining adjective. A multifunctional five letter word that is as unique as taste to the individual. With this edit we look at the elite, the popular and the effect of an era on men’s style. We hope you feel inspired…
BLEND IT LIKE BECKHAM
With regards to hair, there is no doubt the impact David Beckham has had since his September 1st 1996 debut for England. Now considered a British cultural icon, we look at the good and the bad of Becks - the man who made curtain hair, the pompadour and even the buzz cut styles to be reckoned with.
BLAME IT ON THE 80s
RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN
There’s no doubt music has an effect on fashion and style. The one decade that seems to epitomise this was the 80s. The phrase “that’s so 80s” can be a compliment or an insult…you choose. The mullet, the high top and big band hair - a few of the highlights of this era. We’ve chosen rock hair as our seasonal choice.
The pre-fall Dior collection in Tokyo, by the amazing Kim Jones, changed the face of style for the elite fashion world. Jones’ vision for Dior Men is a theory of everything, and on the runway were items for all kinds of guys – elegant and grounded. We loved it.
Hair | PROFILE
#FEMALEBARBER We chat to Dani Lewis, the popular talent behind @toastiestyles on Instagram, based at Johnny’s Chop Shop in London What drew you to the barbering industry? When I studied women’s hairdressing, I just felt like something wasn’t clicking. Shorter haircuts always interested me and I’m a bit of a tomboy, so I just felt at home in a barbershop. How has social media helped your career? Instagram has massively helped my career. I started putting up haircuts and then my barbering journey escalated from there! Have you faced any obstacles as a female barber? Throwing myself into an industry full of men was the biggest obstacle because not many girls were doing barbering. When I first started men would avoid me because I was a little shy girl! Now I’m fully booked weeks in advance these days. I liked that they avoided me - it made me work harder. Do you think there are more women entering the barbering
industry compared to five years ago? Yes, so many! Most days I get a message from a different girl asking me for barbering advice. When I started about four years ago, there were literally about five girls I knew doing it. What says men’s street style to you? Personally, I love longer hairstyles on men. Like the mod cut and cheesy stuff like curtains. But popular street style looks would have to be the fade with textured crop! It pretty much goes with any outfit. Your best hair tip? There are so many tips but here’s a good one. When taking weight out or texturizing, try to point cut more with scissors and less with thinning shears. The structure of the hair can get ruined and clients will pick up on this by noticing their hair feeling wispy as it’s grows out. Point cutting is a good technique. What’s your advice for someone wanting to break into the barber industry? Be yourself! Be creative and as passionate as ever and you’ll go far. Also, watch lots of haircutting videos on YouTube. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? That’s so far ahead, it scares me! I don’t know. I’m leaving it up to the universe to guide me in the right direction. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 93

We sat down with some of the 2018 winners to learn about their knowledge, passion and of course their excitement about their recent win!
Apprentice of the Year JADE SCOTT
Vivo Hair & Beauty Tory Street, Wellington How does it feel to be the Apprentice of the Year? I am absolutely stoked! It was an incredibly humbling experience and such an honour for me to be acknowledged amongst the industry’s top artists, stylists and business people. Where do you see yourself in 2019? Where do you see your career heading in the future? Prior to starting an apprenticeship, I had written a five-year plan. I’m currently in my second year and have already achieved a lot more than I had initially anticipated. Being awarded the 2018 Apprentice of the Year at The Industry Awards means my platform has widened so I can make a difference in our industry. It really excites me to pass on all the tools I’ve been given to other apprentices, so they too can experience the success I’ve been honoured with. One of my next big goals is to qualify and I would also love to compete on the stylist spectrum, including business events.
Trainer of the Year NATASHA BIRD
MPhosis Hair Studio, Hastings What do you attribute your success to? Hairdressing is my world – it’s my job and my hobby. I love everything it’s got to offer. When I’m not at work I still like researching hairdressing and it’s great for me to share that passion with the team. What advice do you have for other trainers? If you empower the team to help and mentor each other, it’s going to make everything stronger.
New Zealand Hair Salon of the Year DAVE ROGERS
Fox Hair Blonde Bar, Hamilton How do you feel entering The Industry Awards has helped you as a business owner? The format of the New Zealand Hair Salon of the Year award is perfect, as it looks at all the areas that need to be healthy in order for your business to succeed. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a really in-depth look at your business. We got so much out of it and it’s such a great tool and health check. Even if you don’t win, it gives you the opportunity to celebrate what you’re doing well and shows you which areas you need to focus on and improve.
What would you say to salons considering entering The Industry Awards in the future? Get your culture right and the KPI’s will follow. Everything comes back to what’s happening on the floor. If your team love coming to work, if they understand your vision, then the KPI’s are a result of that. We certainly look at our numbers a lot, but it all comes back to culture and team.
Editorial Stylist of the Year Natasha King
New Zealand Beauty Salon of the Year MICHAEL & MELISSA GLADDING
FaceTime Skin Clinic, Auckland What motivates you personally and professionally each day? We want our business to be successful, so we are absolutely motivated by that. We also want to create a lifestyle for ourselves and allow our team to lead the lifestyles they want. That starts with us and we want to help our team achieve that. We genuinely enjoy people too - we really like seeing and communicating with clients, so we are motivated when we can have an impact on people’s lives. Of course, getting feedback and seeing nice comments is rewarding also. What do you attribute your success to? Definitely professionalism. From the minute a client walks into the clinic and throughout their time with us, we always maintain a high standard of

professionalism. We make our clients feel welcome, like they belong, are listened to, and we have a high level of attention to detail. It’s what makes them want to come back. We also provide results, not just services, and that’s what we wanted to achieve from the very start. It’s nice to offer fluffy treatments, but we feel if you want long-term clients, you need to produce results for them.

Other big winners on the night were Courtney Taylor from Buoy Salon and Spa in Wellington, who took out the Derek Elvy Visionary Award. This award, introduced in 2018, celebrates the creative genius of the late Derek Elvy, founder of Buoy. He worked closely with the NZARH on the brief and overall concept of the award. Derek’s instructions were that entrants should create a photographic image that was beautiful but arresting, contemporary and directional, and have a technical challenge to it. The Jasmine McBeth Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Jason Parker from Buoy Salon and Spa, Wellington. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the scholarship, created in memory of Jasmine McBeth, who completed her hairdressing apprenticeship while undergoing cancer treatment. When she passed away in 2007, Jasmine’s parents Denise and Murray McBeth used the money she had saved towards setting up a business to create this scholarship, awarded to a hairdressing apprentice showing dedication, passion and commitment to their training and career.

SMOOTH OPERATOR Katherine Gray, owner of Bulls & China in Auckland, talks to Headway about the benefits of smoothing treatment Argila Amazonia @phbnz When did you discover Argila Amazonia and what made you decide you wanted this service in your salon? We discovered it about a year ago when the wonderful Professional Hair Brands General Manager, Lio Paisnel, introduced it to us. Our clients and staff were looking for a more natural, less toxic alternative to keratin, so it was the perfect solution for us.
It’s a great add-on service during humid weather and also for unruly hair. Clients love how easy they can manage their hair and as a stylist, it’s very easy to use. We love it.
What do you love most about Argila Amazonia? That fact that we get positive feedback from every single client. How does it differ from other straightening services you’ve used? Choosing chemicalfree is a great alternative for both the client and the stylist. I love that it is rinsed so clients don’t feel like there is product left on their hair. Clients leave the salon with hair that looks like they’ve had a beautiful blowdry; no residue or downtime
What do you and your clients love most about Argila Amazonia? Clients love how easy they can manage their hair and as a stylist, it is a very easy process. How does the range fit with your salon ethos? It fits really well. We try our best to reduce the amount of chemicals used in the salon and on our clients, and Argila is all-natural. Every client who has used this has seen the benefits and results first-hand. Why do you think other salons would benefit from offering this service? It’s a great add-on service during humid weather and also for unruly hair. You won’t have any toxic fumes in the salon and it’s easy to care for hair – both for the client and the stylist. Argila Amazonia is the first of its kind: an easy-to-apply, all-natural straightening system that produces effective and long-lasting results. It does so with absolutely zero formaldehyde and uses rare Amazonian ingredients – such as White Clay and Murumuru Oil – to create silky, smooth, manageable hair. Just one treatment leaves even the curliest hair perfectly straight. The product line was developed by Brazilian Secrets Hair chemists to provide amazing results without the use of harsh, damaging chemicals. Argila Amazonia is available from Professional Hair Brands.

Three of the Headway team share their celebrity style crushes
@ e mm a
Pia Miller, the Chilean-born Australian bombshell, actress and model, is my true style idol. Not only is she effortlessly beautiful (with a body to match), she is also a devoted mama to two boys. I love her natural beauty and voluminous locks. And just quietly, I’ve always been a secret Home and Away fan. nepictu sto r es
I’ve had a major girl crush on Sienna Miller from the start of her career in Layer Cake, in the days where she was unfairly touted as simply ‘Jude Law’s girlfriend’. She’s a style chameleon and almost single-handedly reinvented boho back in the summer of 2005, bursting onto our fashion radar with her hippy deluxe look. Throughout the years she’s explored a variety of styles – and hair looks – all of which I’ve loved. Today, she rocks refined chic with a twist on the red carpet but still has fun with fashion. Who else could pull off oversized grey track pants and a bright yellow beanie while on the school run and still look amazing? Best of all, she’s the kind of girl who can laugh at herself and doesn’t take things too seriously. Love!

I think Emma Stone is just so effortlessly cool. From her iconic pink Met Gala moment in 2014 (a personal fave outfit on any celeb EVER), she portrays such a minimalistic elegance, which makes her style all the more endearing. Not to mention her charity work and down-to-earth personality. She definitely seems like the kind of person you’d want to be BFF’s with. Her amazing performance in the gorgeous La La Land had me mesmorised - the girl can sing too!

Sands Hotel Spa
Sharleen Singh indulges in a blush-hued dream in California, USA @sandshotelspa
ands Hotel & Spa, launched in 2018, is the latest imagining in boutique hotel group PRGâ€™s bespoke properties throughout California. The hotel was originally a late 1950s era property in the heart of Indian Wells, a small community nestled between Palm Desert and La Quinta in the Coachella Valley. It has been completely reimagined with new building additions, including the Pink Cabana restaurant and bar, full-service spa and private wedding garden, substantial interior and exterior renovations and a complete redesign throughout. Sands Hotel & Spa will offer a new sensibility to desert travellers, with a unique, boutique vision that feels like a contemporary, creative
new addition to the greater Palm Springs region landscape. Group Spa Director for PRG Hospitality, Luciana LoPresto, who was also principal of Spa Casa Hotel + Spa Consulting and served as spa consultant on the project, explains the ins and outs of this magnificent spa.
Tell us about the design inspiration... At the Sands Hotel & Spa the inspiration is found in the hammams of Morocco and Turkey, thanks to the visionary approach of acclaimed designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 designers in the world. His concept for the 46 room boutique hotel is decidedly Moorish, particularly with the Spa at the Sands. The palette of white and desert pink was inspired by the beautiful marble and mirror master bathroom in Shangri La, the legendary Hawaii home of tobacco heiress Doris Duke. That space was crafted in Agra, India in the 1930s from white marble, mirror mosaics, semi-precious jewels, and inlaid arabesque design.
What are some of the spa’s features? Located in the Olive Grove, the spa includes three treatment rooms, one of which is a couple’s treatment room. The spa also features a reception and retail area complete with lush seating for lounging pre and post-treatment. Bullard wanted it to be a special place where relaxation is the core emotion given by the design. The spaces provide guests with the utmost comfort, serenity, and a quiet place to rejuvenate the body and soul.
Which products do you work with? Our primary skincare products are from the French marine based line Phytoceane, which we also offer for retail. Also available are full-sized products from Aqua di Parma, the hotel’s amenity line. What treatments do you offer? We offer a variety of massage, facial and body treatments. All of the spa’s treatments are designed to promote vibrancy, health and inner beauty. Our signature treatment is our Royal Rhassoul Body Treatment ($250, 80 minutes) which includes a dry brushing, envelopment in a mask made of Moroccan clay (mined from the Atlas Mountains), rose petals, coconut milk and honey, and a rubdown with jasmine-scented body oil. As our signature treatment, The Royal Rhassoul Body Treatment has been popular since we opened the Spa in April this year. Combining traditional Western techniques with detoxifying minerals and botanicals from all over the world, the spa at the Sands Hotel & Spa will leave your body, as well your mind, with a sense of rejuvenation.

Sothys Celebrates a Milestone Jean-Michel Tallot, General Manager of de Spa Cosmetics, writes about this year’s memorable Sothys convention @sothys_nz
he Biennial Sothys Convention has become a valued and well-attended tradition within our loyal Sothys family. The most recent, held at the central location of Intercontinental Hotel in Wellington, had a certain weight of expectation following on from previous successful events. With very good attendance from clinics from all over the country, the stage was set for a great weekend, which has always been about the chance for clinic owners and managers to socialise, share ideas and experiences, and celebrate the two years prior. The weekend began on Friday afternoon by boarding a coach to a mystery destination. Much to the delight of everyone, we pulled into the Weta Workshop in Miramar where The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and many other blockbuster movies were created. The tour was guided by one of the special effects makeup artists, who was very entertaining and insightful. The tour finished with a makeup special effects demonstration with one of the group to show off the mastery and reality they can create. It was an incredible experience that gave us a new appreciation for what Weta Workshop and the hundreds of people that work there have achieved since The Lord of the Rings. It was a fun Friday evening to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. A themed ‘off to the races’ dinner gave everyone the chance to dress up and enjoy the entertainment, which involved a team quiz and race. Let’s just say the humour and competitive spirit set the tone for the rest of the weekend. This conference had special significance for the de Spa team and clients, none more so than Anne-Marie de Spa. It was 30 years ago that de Spa Cosmetics was incorporated to exclusively represent Sothys in New Zealand, one of the very first professional product lines to enter the country following the government’s de-regulation of the import laws. To acknowledge this achievement, Anne-Marie called up all the clients in order of when they first started with Sothys, with many of the ‘originals’ still working with the brand, some going all the way back to 1988 when Sothys was introduced to NZ. This was a very sentimental and 120 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
emotional moment to reflect on a special history and bond that is so strong and in many ways, unique to the industry. Saturday saw a packed agenda, including new product launches, technical workshops, practical demos and guest speakers, Sandi and Jeffrey Daily, the Australian Sothys agents. The conference agenda finished with a makeup competition where everyone was split into smaller groups and asked to create a certain ‘look’ using the new Sothys Spring/Summer Seasonal Makeup collection. This continued to fuel the competitive spirit which made for a very tough job for the judging panel, especially with prizes and honour at stake. The conference concluded with a cocktail dinner and awards celebration at the Intercontinental, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy themselves and celebrate with good company. Several award categories were presented, including anniversary recognition for the special efforts of some who have demonstrated extraordinary service to Sothys. Following the awards, a very touching pre-recording of video was played. Sothys owner, Mr Bernard Mas, congratulated Anne-Marie for her devotion and friendship over 30 years and paid tribute to the amazing legacy she has created in New Zealand. This was a tearful moment for her and many others, as it is a rare appearance for the man who has inspired so many and has a special love for NZ. The evening is never complete without some great live music and this year, talented band Jamie and the Gents had everyone dancing. The feedback from those that attended confirmed to the de Spa team that this had been a very special and memorable weekend that set a new benchmark for this event. The next will be in 2020 somewhere in the South Island, yet to be announced!

UNEDITED BEAUTY We spoke to Kristen Laing-Herbert, General Manager & Creative Director of LaGaia, about this forward-thinking range
How did LaGaia come about? LaGaia began in the mid-90’s while Dr Jean Laing was running her Chiropractic & Wellness Practice. She found that women were struggling to find products that they could use that wouldn’t irritate their skin, particularly with hyper-sensitive conditions. Dr Jean couldn’t find formulations she felt confident in to recommend that were healthy for skin and for the environment. So, she got to work creating a healthy, pH-balanced skincare range with natural and sensitive skin formulations. How would you describe LaGaia? When Dr Jean first developed the line more than 20+ years ago, she wanted to create unique products that were more than just skin care; a range that holistically nurtured our mind, body and skin. Precious, simple and versatile for people short of time not wanting to compromise on results or luxury experiences. A bespoke range that has been developed for the most sensitive skin, bringing it back within its desired pH balance. How have you incorporated precious minerals? Our Precious Elements range is very special. We have ground down ingredients like quartz crystals - amethyst, rose quartz, lapis lazuli and pearl - into some of our signature products. We put the real deal inside our products to elevate their activity and energise the formulation. Every crystal has a different vibration, a different healing energy that works with our own chemistry to help restore our bodies to their highest potential. Tell us about the philosophy of “Unedited Beauty” Unedited beauty has a trinity meaning for us. Firstly, it was born from a disillusioned consumer, the heavily edited photography in advertising, the photoshopped and curated social media feeds creating unrealistic expectations for the consumer. We found there was growing disappointment in consumer shopping experiences once they realised what they had purchased. Clothing, makeup or skincare wasn’t going to help them look like a billboard advertisement – a widely marketed false reality. 1 HEADWAY.NET.NZ
Beauty | WELLNESS
Second, Unedited for us stands to replace the term ‘organic’. We believe many businesses have inappropriately used the classification and have now created a lot of mistrust. Unedited represents our organic, natural and scientific formulations. With the amazing feats of the digital world, there are also downsides to the digitally-edited life society is living. The ‘Unedited philosophy’ wants to bring confidence back to our consumer that the modern life seems to have chiselled away. We formulate with natural, organic and science’s best ingredients. We don’t want to be lumped in with brands that are pulling the wool over intelligent consumer eyes. Archaic beauty marketing and social media has created a warped vision of beauty and lifestyle ideals, with women and men lusting over their post-production selves instead of loving who they are before a photo filtering app. LUE brings skin back into a luminous healthy state, balancing pH and creating confidence in our consumer that helps facilitate an unedited lifestyle, putting your freshest face forward.

What makes LaGaia stand out from the rest? We develop every product with pH at its fundamental core and an environmental consciousness. Add to that precious ground crystals, and scientifically proven ingredients that create notable results in skin. We have a concise range unlike other brands, making our guests product choice simple and effective. We are in some of the most luxurious spas in Australia and we offer a full menu of service from head to toe, so we can be used as a stand-alone product. We like to work with our spa’s to create unique menu’s that reflect their spa’s best attributes and therapists skills.
KRISTEN’S TOP SUMMER PICKS: • P4O SPF 30 Sunscreeen • P4O 3-in-1 After Sun Solution • Copper Infuse Firming Repair Complex • Copper Peptide Mist Liquid Lift • Vitamin C-Serum • Beauty Balm
Tell us how P4O was created? Dr Jean’s son, Austin and daughter-in-law Louise, are marine biologists specialising in coral reef restoration. A few years ago they started discussing the problem ingredients of sunscreen and some common beauty products. The devastating effects they are causing not only our health, but reef life also. LaGaia started research and development, with the launch of the first sunscreen developed with marine biologists that is 100% natural, TGA-approved, three hours water-resistant and double the size of its competitors, while remaining half the price. This has been a strategic choice to make sure that everyone can be comfortable buying this product for use, not just those with a higher disposable income. Within this price we also donate $1 from every product sale to give back to restoration projects around the world. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 127

Fresh Faced Sharleen Singh explores how to best prep the canvas for all that summer brings
here’s nothing better than a memorable summer. You know the type, days spent at the beach, impromptu summer roadies and endless celebrations in the evening. However, warmer days also bring about a bunch of side-effects for the skin, which is why it’s important to prep for humidity, salt and sun.
Whether you’re an avid wave-hopper, or love lying on the sand with a good book, the beach is the epitome of summer. Promoting a hair removal programme to clients, whether it’s waxing or laser, is sure to be popular during this season. Encourage a body polish and bronzing in-spa, along with a take-home scrub. While sea salt is packed with healthy skin-friendly minerals, for those that suffer from irritated skin conditions such as eczema, it’s important to rinse off as soon as possible, at the beach and at home with a body wash. Don’t forget to remind clients, before they pop on those vibrant bikinis and elegant one-pieces, to lather up in sunscreen – and reapply!
Whether it’s by plane, caravan, or car, air-conditioning can be quite drying for skin during a long journey. To ensure a hydrated complexion for the road ahead, suggest to clients that they use a rich moisturiser or face mask the night before. Skip full-coverage foundation for a tinted moisturiser or light BB cream instead, for a more comfortable journey – and no foundation marks on the seat if a nap is needed! Add a refreshing spritz of mist for an instant boost of hydration, the perfect add-on to your summer treatments.
2 3 1
Whilst we enjoy the warmth that summer brings, humidity is an unfortunate side-effect, depending on how you look at it. Added moisture in the air brings about hydration, which can add a plumping effect to the skin. Humidity can also result in makeup slipping and smudging, and a greasy shine – not ideal during party season. This is why we suggest that clients switch up their skin care routines every season. Whilst in winter a rich moisturiser is best, during summer the opposite is the case. Encourage cleansing thoroughly at the end of the day to avoid clogged pores, as during humid weather perspiration tends to sit on the skin, instead of evaporating. For makeup, a mineral powder rather than a creamy foundation, will help to reduce shine on the T-zone, as well as showing off those beautiful summer freckles. Fresh, healthy skin for an endless summer. 1 Sothys Desquacrem Deep Cleanser. 2 Jane Iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray. 3 Ultraceuticals Ultra Replenishing Mask. 4 Algologie Hydra-Refreshing Exfoliating Cream. 5 Thalgo Foaming Micellar Cleansing Lotion. 6 Joyce Blok Everyday Sun Fitness SPF 15+.

GETTING CHEEKY Sharleen Singh takes a look at the best lotions, potions and treatments for the perfect posterior SPA UPDATE There are plenty of treatments and techniques that you can implement in-spa in order to cater for the tush. A massage that focuses on this area will de-puff and revive, especially when paired with a toning body wrap. The next step would be to introduce technology that stimulates, such as sculpting or suction-based. These types of treatments work beneath the skin’s surface, and would be an ideal programme for summer. Encourage clients to body brush at home in between treatments, as it encourages toxin release, stimulates the lymph nodes, and allows for a smooth, dry skin-free surface.

Gone is the pursuit of a stick thin bod – we’re talking 90’s Kate Moss and 00’s Paris Hilton. These days, bodacious butts are in, which has become even more apparent with the popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). BBL is the exotic-sounding name for gluteal fat grafting, a procedure that involves removing fat from one part of the body via liposuction, and transplanting it via injection into the bottom. This results in a fuller, perkier derriere, as documented earlier in the year by NZ weight loss star Simone Anderson. For clients not willing to fork out thousands of dollars just yet, there is the less extreme option of pairing with your local gym for a butt-based exercise regime - a “booty boot camp” if you will. The bottom of your clients dreams may only be a few squats away.

When it comes to products, there are a wide range of choices, both within your own existing brands, or potential additions to your portfolio. A smoothing serum or cream will replenish moisture and an energising oil can enhance elasticity. Another arch nemesis of bikini season is body acne, which can be prevented with a foaming wash, or a gentle exfoliator. For clients that want to fake it till they make it, a bronzing lotion or self-
tanner allows for an all-over base coat to hide stretch marks and scarring. And for the ultimate illusion, simply apply another layer to the ‘w’ shape underneath the bum – yes, butt-contouring is a thing.

COCO LOCO Making the leap from kitchen counters to bathroom shelves, the humble coconut truly is a multi-use staple. Sharleen Singh discovers why
oil has a very high comedogenic rating, meaning that it can clog pores. Which makes sense when used on your hair, but not so much on acne or blemish-prone skin types. For other skin types however, there are many benefits, including the fact that it is antimicrobial, meaning it’ll kill off any surface bacteria. It’s also fantastic for soothing rashes, chapped lips, combats flaking and speeds up the skin’s healing process. And if ever in need of a highlighter? Simply dab it along your cheekbones for a fast glow. With regards to the future of this ingredient, we are only scratching the surface. 2010 – 2016 saw a 318% increase in the innovation and launch of coconut-based products worldwide. The increase in demand is higher than ever, which will mean that skin houses will need to start thinking outside the box. Products focused on diet supplementation are set to be at the forefront of innovation, most especially catered to vegan and dairy-free diets, which means that coconuts in the beauty industry are here to stay - watch this space!
Its anti-inflammatory properties are also ideal to soothe sunburn, especially during the summer months
oconut has been a standout ingredient from the natural beauty movement of recent years. From celebrity brands such as Goop, to international retailers like Sephora, you’ll find many an aisle dedicated purely to natural products; and that’s where you’ll find the do-it-all coconut. A common skincare ingredient, coconut milk is a nourishing choice for glowing skin. Created by blending coconut flesh and straining it to release the “milk”, this ingredient has been a staple in baths for centuries. High in saturated fats and a fantastic moisturiser, its anti-inflammatory properties are ideal to soothe sunburn, especially during the summer months. The same can also be said about coconut water. Truly refreshing, it is the drink of choice for many. As well as boosting skin health, it’s full of electrolytes and multiple nutrients such as vitamin C, B, K, zinc and more. The very definition of glowing skin from within! Plus, there have been countless reports of treating minor irritations by rinsing the affected area with coconut water, as well as a more suitable option for acne-prone skins, instead of oil. Consider adding coconut water to your spa menu for the warmer months, especially to rehydrate clients after a relaxing massage or body treatment, to fully embrace the benefits. Coconut oil has been a popular buzzword for the past few years. Extracted from the flesh of mature coconuts, it only takes a simple Google search to find a plethora of uses, tips and benefits for this oil, dating back to 2014, when it first made a splash in the beauty world. With its tropical holiday-inducing scent, the oil has a long shelf-life, and has long been used as a hair mask, makeup remover, lip scrub, and even a breath-freshener. One thing that most experts have agreed on nowadays however, is that this oil is not universally suitable for all skin types. This is because the

Summer Skin New research is suggesting that using topical vitamin C both before and after sun exposure can be as effective as using sunscreen. Dr Catherine Stone investigates
Beauty | APPEAR ANCE MEDICINE
“In temperate countries like New Zealand, people often do not get enough exposure to sunlight during the winter months, which can lead to vitamin D deficiency”
ummer. The season of celebration, beach, bikinis, sweating, sun… and if you’re not careful, sunburn! We often talk about using sunscreen to prevent sunburn and the subsequent skin damage and accelerated ageing, but new research suggests that using antioxidant serums topically on the skin may also be helpful. There is also debate about whether regular use of sunscreen might reduce your vitamin D levels, which can contribute to depression and obesity. So what do we do? Every time you go out in direct sun for more than 20 minutes, you destroy up to 90% of the active vitamin A in your skin. Vitamin A is considered to be one of the main anti-ageing skin vitamins. Regular topical use can help reverse DNA damage, improve smoothness, reduce pigmentation, regulate sebum to reduce acne, and give a healthy glow. While researching my new book, ‘Grow Younger And More Beautiful As You Age’, I discovered that Dr Des Fernandes, plastic surgeon and inventor of the Environ skin care range, believes that skin ageing and skin cancer is due to a chronic deficiency of vitamin A. In addition to regular replacement of vitamin A with your topical skin serums, topical vitamin C serums may also be photo-protective, protecting your skin from the negative effects of UV damage. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which also has benefits in brightening the skin and is essential in collagen production, but new research is suggesting that using topical vitamin C both before and after sun exposure can be as effective as using sunscreen, as the antioxidant action mops up any of the damaging free radicals. It is best used on a daily basis, however vitamin C can be active in preventing sun damage for 30-36 hours after topical application. Another important vitamin related to skin is vitamin D. Vitamin D is unique in that it is converted into its active form in the skin, when your skin is exposed to sunlight. In temperate countries like New Zealand, Northern Europe and the UK, people often do not get enough exposure to sunlight during the winter months, which can lead to vitamin D deficiency,
resulting in osteoporosis, poor calcium metabolism, obesity, and even depression. There has been concern raised that the use of sunscreens and sun avoidance may increase the incidence of vitamin D deficiency, although the research around this has mixed results. If you avoid the sun, it may be worth considering oral or injectable vitamin D replacements, or using LED light treatments, such as Omnilux, to provide non-UV light, which can boost your skin as well as your mood! Sunscreens are not created equal and unfortunately, the SPF rating is not the best indicator of which sunscreen might be best for you. SPF measures the number of times you can extend your burn time (the time it takes for you to burn). So it is specifically targeted to UVB, the ‘burning rays’ rather than UVA (the ageing rays). Higher SPF ratings do not necessarily give you a higher protection, and in Australia, the TGA has recognised this and does not allow advertising of anything higher than an SPF 30. An SPF 15 sunscreen blocks 94% of the sun’s rays, while an SPF 30 blocks 97%. No matter the SPF, you should be reapplying sunscreen at least every two hours, as it is likely to be worn off (or sweated off) over this time. The other reason I avoid the higher SPF sunscreens is that they contain chemical sunscreens, which may actually cause more free radical damage to the skin than the sun exposure does. It can get confusing with sunscreen, antioxidant, and vitamin D messages all conflicting! My recommendation is to see a medical skin therapist to help guide you on what vitamin serums and sunscreens might be appropriate for your skin, as there are different types of vitamin A and vitamin C. Try to get at least 20 minutes exposure to bright sun in the morning (this also helps with your sleep-wake cycle and circadian rhythm), supplement with vitamin D, as it has positive mood benefits, and have an LED light treatment at least once a month. You can learn more about sunscreens, skin vitamins and bio hacks to help with sleep, productivity, stress relief and more, in Dr Catherine Stone’s book ‘Grow Younger And More Beautiful As You Age’, now available on Amazon.

The Jewel in the Crown Anne Oâ€™Brien looks at the impact of royal fan-ship on nose jobs
OBSERV SKIN DIAGNOSTIC
his last twelve months or so has definitely been a period of royal obsessions. Triggered by the Markle effect from as early as the engagement announcement in November 2017, we then got all dressed up and watched the wedding from afar in May 2018. Not long after came the nuptials of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, with its predictable comparisons and royal bitchiness from fans and guests alike. Then royal baby news was just days later – something else to look forward to as the bump begins to grow. In addition to this though, we’ve seen the resurgence of rock and pop royalty on the big screen. The legendary Lady Gaga in version three of ‘A Star is Born’ and relatively unknown Rami Malek starring in the latest Queen movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. It seems that a new collective of fans for this old-school adulation is now part of our late 2000’s culture. For most of us, royal fan-ship skipped a generation. Whilst Princess Diana was an icon for some (who could ever forget her tragic death), what was once a compulsory visit to Buckingham Place within weeks of moving to London became nothing much to be bothered about through the ‘90s. There is no doubt by 2018 the nostalgia and romance is back and this is never more obvious than by the announcement in the US that Meghan Markle’s nose is now the hottest thing in plastic surgery circles globally. For way too long, the Kardashians were the most requested look for facial plastic surgery and suddenly the ‘Kim K’ nose has been dethroned and the ‘Markle’ is all the rage. Rhinoplasty (or nose job as it is known) is the most commonly performed plastic surgery, but it is widely regarded by aesthetic surgeons
as one of the more complex surgeries to perform. The nasal passages are delicate and the nose itself is pretty small. Rhinoplasty is about bringing an aesthetic balance to the face and nasal enhancement. It’s not just a case of saying ‘I want Meghan’s nose’ and the plastic surgeon saying ‘sure’. Facial structure is unique and like all plastic surgery, a lengthy consultation is required. There are nasal surgeries that are designed specifically for functional issues of the nose. Septoplasty for instance corrects a deviated or crooked septum. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that can be performed for function and shape. Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing the size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip of the bridge, decreasing the span of the nostrils or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. The surgery takes approximately an hour under either a general or intravenous sedation and also local anaesthesia are used. Recovery is usually a week but patients are advised to avoid any activity that could impact on the nose or allow it to become sunburned for at least eight weeks. The final results may take one year or sometimes longer to achieve * As one of the most prominent parts of the face, the shape of the nose can effect everything else. The nose is the anchor of the face and like her predecessor in ‘A Star is Born’, the prominent nose of Gaga is endearingly referred to in the movie. She uses her index finger and swipes down her foreword, nose and chin to indicate how precious her once ridiculed ‘big’ nose is to her (not too much of a spoiler if you haven’t seen the movie yet). Ultimately, whether it’s Meghan’s nose or some other look that appeals, a nose job is a complex surgery so it is wise to give it the respect it deserves. *www.isaps.org for more information

Vegan Beauty Once considered niche but now increasingly mainstream, Sharleen Singh explores the rise of this growing market
eganism is a movement that is in no way slowing down. Estimated at USD 12.9 billion in 2017, the demand for vegan cosmetics is growing, and is set to reach USD 20.8 billion in 2025. Embracing natural substitutes, such as plantbased products, is the way that the world is moving, which can also be directly linked to the crueltyfree market. Nearly 40 countries have bans and regulations in place regarding the sale of cosmetics testing on animals, including the whole of the EU, Israel, Turkey, the UK, South Korea and New Zealand. Plus in September, California became the first US state to pass a bill implementing a ban. Another big player, Unilever, has called for a global ban on animal testing for cosmetics, which is sure to make a mark on the global cosmetics industry. With more millennials embracing veganism, it is no longer considered unconventional. Celebrities are also supporting the benefits of living a vegan lifestyle, prompting an influx of high-end vegan products on the market, including the inevitable rise of men’s grooming products in the near future. Innovation is also a key player, with more and more younger start-ups with strong ideals and out-of-the box branding and marketing. There is a real change in regards to packaging, with recyclable and biodegradable being preferred options.
TRENDS TO WATCH IN 2019 1. FERTILITY WELLNESS Affecting one in eight couples, fertility treatments can have a range of psychological health impacts. The wellness sector is well-placed to serve this group, with massage treatments and techniques being developed in the near future.
Today’s consumer is well-informed, and there is major growth in the world of wellness. It’s not just about being vegan for health reasons; there is a real shift towards sustainable life choices and seeking products out with kindness, reduced carbon emissions and less strain on the planet’s resources. A healthy planet and skincare that works both exist in the mind of consumers nowadays, and skin houses need to act accordingly. However, ethical products made from the very best that nature has to offer is important, which brings about a need for research and development to ensure effective products. One thing is for sure, veganism is no longer a fad, it’s a way of life, and the industry will need to act and prepare accordingly.
Beyond the wellness-lifestyle app, these apps can be prescribed by a doctor, and may work in conjunction with medications to treat and manage a wide variety of conditions. These may include chronic pain, addiction and PTSD, and could enhance clients homecare routines.
3. VIRTUAL REALITY (VR) In September, a healthcare technology company announced that they are working on health and wellness solutions using VR. From pain management, to birthing mothers, this could also be expanded to include spa experiences such as lying on a beach during a massage.
4. BODY LOVE There has been backlash against the weight loss industry, with Weight Watchers removing the word ‘Weight’ from their branding, to now be known as WW. This is because of the shift towards body neutrality – less focus on physical, more importance on wellness.

T E E N AG E SPIRIT
iGen (1994 – 2012) were born with internet access: a next-level digital audience. Teenage angst has been replaced with a teenage spirit and a confidence you need to be ready for. Anne O’Brien looks at marketing to the next generation millennials
y teenage years were pretty normal really. They were full of self-doubt, trying to be cool with the girls at school and desperate to leave home. Basically, they were the exact opposite to the teenage years of what is now called iGen. Self-doubt, for the majority, has been replaced with selfies. iGen is more worried about how many likes they receive from strangers than being bothered with who they sat next to on the bus home and quite frankly, they have zero plans to leave home and when they do, they’re expecting their parents to pay the rent. Yes I know I’m now sounding distinctly middleaged and yes, teenagers have driven us mad forever BUT the reality is, iGen has had more influence on household purchases as children than any other. Parents of iGen look to them for shopping advice (OMG) and would readily accept suggestions from them while in-store. We have a whole new consumer out there and you need to know what they will respond to if you want to grow your business. You thought millennials were your future?

DREAMING OF SUCCESS Success coach, Annabelle Matson, shares her tips on fulfilling your dreams for 2019 @ANNABELLEMATSON
CHALLENGE 1 Deciding What’s Possible For You Based On Your Current Reality
If there’s something you really want to change in your life, don’t look at your current reality and use that as a reference point of what’s possible in the future. Otherwise, you are only ever going to get more of what you already have. You will never create your dream life by resigning to your current reality. Decide today that change is possible for you and shift your focus from where you are to where you’re heading.
CHALLENGE 2 Goal Shame
Many women suffer from “goal shame” and feel as though their goals and dreams are not worthy or good enough when compared to others. A common misunderstanding is that unless our goals are the BIGGEST AND BEST, they are not worth going for. Approaching life from this perspective means we can end up pursuing a path that feels out of alignment with who we really are, and one that’s based on someone else’s version of success. In my experience, the biggest barrier to making our dreams a reality is not the external things. Because let’s be honest, if it’s that important we will find a way around obstacles. More often than not, the biggest barrier to our dreams is us - our own fears, doubts and insecurities. The real challenge is not to “find” or “discover” what we are truly passionate about, but to give ourselves permission to pursue, deep down what we know is meant for us, even if other people don’t agree or understand. If you’re unsure on what your goals are, ask yourself: If you didn’t care what others might say, what would you be doing? It’s usually the first thing that
pops into your head! You’ll never find true fulfilment from pursuing someone else’s version of success. Give yourself the best gift in 2019 by unapologetically claiming what YOU truly desire and don’t settle for anything less.
CHALLENGE 3 Getting Caught Up In “How” You Will Make It Happen
As soon as we decide on a goal to work towards, our mind goes into overdrive furiously trying to work out “how” we will make it happen. It feels paralysing to search for all of the steps and the right actions to take. I see so many women stuck at step 1 because they can’t move forward until they have complete clarity on all of the steps along the way. You can’t wait until you know exactly how you’re going to achieve your biggest desires and dreams, otherwise you’ll always be waiting. Marie Forleo says, “clarity comes through action not thought”. As you step out and start taking action, you will gain clarity on all of the steps that lie ahead. You only need to look at your past experiences to know this is true. Your dreams are made real one day, one decision, and one action at a time. So get started! For more information & free resources to create your dream life, head to annabellematson.com

Lyndall Mitchell & Shannah Kennedy share an excerpt from their book SHINE - 20 Ways to a Happy Life @theessentialistshub
oy is what makes life beautiful. At the end of the day, your happiness throughout life is what really matters. Joy, laughter, love and happiness are a state of mind and an orientation of the heart. It is a feeling of confidence, lightness, contentment and hope. Creating the bliss in your life is an essential skill and habit to ensure you are able to experience life with your heart full. You are often taught to put your work first and the rewards will come later if you are lucky and it all works out. You wait for the desserts in life, for the day to use or wear your ‘good’ things and wait for everything to be perfect before you allow yourself to experience the joy. However, stress, burnout, exhaustion and misery are often the result of this approach if you are not willing to frontload life with happiness. People confuse selfishness with self-care. You cannot be the best most vibrant, generous version of yourself if your heart isn’t full, your motivation bubbling and your resentment at bay. Focusing on your joy and creating the bliss in your life will fill your heart and allow you be of higher service, open to more opportunities and enrich your daily life with lightness. Whole hearted joy is a sustained, conscious, elevated vibrating energy that can be harnessed when you understand what your recipe for it is. It will reveal eagerness and enthusiasm for life and take your motivation and inspiration to a new level. To find this place of bliss, you need to focus on the skill of it, and build your capacity for intense, sustained and positive energy, bringing it to yourself and others. It does not come from a shop - it is cultivated and it is who you are at your deepest core.
HOW TO MAKE HAPPINESS AND JOY A DAILY HABIT • Maximise your breath - one of the simplest ways to control your mood • Move your body - improve your perspective and motivation in life • Do what you love - cultivate more activity around what you naturally love doing • Find your tribe - people who bring out the best in you • Practice gratitude - focus on what is good in your life.
THREE WAYS TO CULTIVATE BLISS
Create bliss points each and every day for yourself. The small commitments to your own joy and happiness accumulate and fuel your mind with positivity. Start building into your to-do list each day some joy. Speak with friends, go to that yoga or boxing class, endulge in a bath, turn off your phone and read a book. Create some space, book a massage, write your journal, tidy up, get organised, be kind to yourself.

Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Finding time for yourself has been said to be the key to your own sanity. Having a hobby can improve all other aspects of your life, relieve stress, be a creative outlet and is a great way to meet new people. Creative hobbies, or side projects, help you tap into a sense of play and cultivates improvement in the thinking part of your brain. They
allow you to do something that is just for you, that will help you unwind and give you pleasure. Having outside-of-work interests that challenge and engage you open up a new way of thinking, relieves stress, connects you to others and brings bliss into your life. Some examples of highly successful people who invested in the skill of joy are the late Steve Jobs who found calligraphy, Phil Libin, Evernote CEO who played piano for an hour a day and singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell, who painted for joy. • Look to your past and what made your heart sing as a child • Solo or social • Understand your budget • Enlist help from friends • Try again
hope and curiosity. • Dreamstorm – write down freely what comes to mind with no limits • Get inspiration – research other people’s bucket lists • Share your list – create interest and buy in and make it happen. Get a bucket list buddy • Get your top 3 ready to go – start planning – who, when, where, how. theessentialists.com.au Shannah Kennedy & Lyndall Mitchell are founders of The Essentialists and co-authors of Shine.
By definition, a bucket list is a list of goals, things and experiences you want to do or try before you die. So, start your dreamstorm now. It provides direction, inspiration, motivation and opens your mind to opportunities and dreams, and can cultivate joy and happiness in life. They make you stop and think what you actually want to experience in this lifetime and give you HEADWAY.NET.NZ 145

HOW TO AVOID HOLIDAY BLOWOUT
ou know the drill. You book your favourite summer getaway, look at your summer wardrobe and go into a mild panic. Immediately, a strict eating and fitness regime comes into play, only to undo all your good work on day one. Good news, it doesn’t have to be that way. We are here to help.
BEAT THE BLOAT
Eating differently on holidays can lead to stomach bloating. The best advice is to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated (it’s easy to forget when you’re busy on a sun lounger). There is no better way to stay hydrated than taking two teaspoons of SUPER ELIXIR Greens in filtered water. Its 45 ingredients, including four probiotics for optimal digestive function, means less bloating and a flatter tummy. And fast.
FIND TIME TO SWEAT
Sweating is a great natural way to detox the body and to kick-start your metabolism. So if you’re indulging, the best way to balance this out is by going for a jog along the beach, a couple
of laps in the hotel pool, take a surfing lesson, go on a trail ride, or a hike in the mountains. Make it fun!
Start your holiday right with Elle’s secret jet lag remedy – a double dose of SUPER ELIXIR, one taken pre and post-flight, mixed with filtered water. It provides your body with the essential nutrients and hydration it needs in order to adjust to whatever tropical time zone you are in.
RELAX, BUT DON’T BINGE
Indulging is important but making healthy swaps means less of your hard work will be undone by the time you go home. • Kick-start your trip by packing a healthy, filling meal or snack for the plane ride. • Don't skip breakfast. It's important to fuel your body for the day ahead. If you're not hungry, opt for one scoop of WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN with almond milk or water. • Alcohol can add to your waistline and sap your energy! Go for a Mojito
instead - a blend of rum, sugar, mint leaves, lime juice, and club soda. Ask the bartender to cut back on the sugar by a third and add a few extra splashes of club soda to lower the calorie count. • If you plan to be out all day, bring along your own healthy snacks to stave off hunger. A healthy blowout and stress-free summer awaits.

Here are WelleCo’s top tips on making it through the summer season

SECRETS OF SUCCESS
t’s not every day that you get advice from a collection of women with varying forms of success in one room. It all took place at the Girls in Business Conference, held at the beautifully decorated Shed 10 in Auckland. After a brief welcome from AMI, we were introduced to Annette Presley, co-founder of Slingshot and true definition of a bad-ass, with an estimated net worth of 100 million. Annette spoke on how
getting kicked out of her home as a teenager prompted her to turn her life around. Annette is a huge advocate in self-belief, leaving us with the mantra, “all I need is within me”. Next was Lisa King, founder and creator of Eat My Lunch, who shared the shocking fact that 290,000 Kiwi kids went to school without lunch. She explained how she turned a simple idea of buy one give one into a profitable company. We were shown a series of thank you letters from kids around the country and there was not a dry eye in sight. Lisa’s advice was that even a simple yet important idea can work, as long as you have passion, drive and a solid plan. We were also treated to the MC magic of Suzy Cato, who led us in a nostalgic sing-along version of “see you later”. A great reminder that no matter what you do in life, it’s always important to cherish your inner child – and yes, this child managed to nab Suzy for a photo! There was a real buzz in the room as the next guest speaker was announced. Karen Walker made her presence known by opting to perch on the arm of a gorgeous Citta chair, and boy did she look both cool and impossibly comfortable. Karen explained that she

However, there was an OMG moment that involved Madonna wearing Karen Walker black wool trousers at the 1998 MTV awards. Karen explained that you should do something for the right reasons, be creative and be agile. Karen also touched on the successful campaign of Toast the dog, who boasted 354K followers, which brought added Insta-fame to Karen’s eyewear line. A true example of thinking outside the box, we were left with the inspiring advice of “don’t settle for close enough”. A truly inspiring day with a bunch of brilliant women.
