elcome to a new season and a new year. Summer has arrived and if that isn’t cause to celebrate, I don’t know what is. For those lucky enough to have had time off, the holidays represent all the best things about a Kiwi summer: glorious sunny days, family and friends, long days at the beach or on the boat, barbeques, champagne, and anything that counts as indulgence. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the year that’s been and become inspired for the year ahead. This issue celebrates some very special talent in our industry. Mana Dave and Kylie Hayes won the top titles at the International Wella Trend Vision Awards in London - an amazing feat. I’m sure every Kiwi salon and stylist was as proud and excited as we were at Headway. The duo share their experience and their pride at representing New Zealand in 24 Hours With Mana Dave (page 24) and Competitive Edge (page 38). November’s Kitomba NZARH Business Awards saw Buoy Salon & Spa take out five accolades, including New Zealand Salon of the Year. 2017 marked 30 years since Buoy founder and director Derek Elvy set up his dream salon in Wellington. Having been celebrated for years on the creative front, Buoy can now also be defined by their dominance in business. Creative Director, Michael Beel, gave an impassioned speech and a standing ovation for the man who started it all followed; the one and only, Derek Elvy. We talk to Michael and Managing Director, Phillippa Middleton, about Buoy’s phenomenal success in Winning Formula (page 90). For your inspirational pleasure, we’ve included beautiful collections from some of our favourite international artists, including Angelo Seminara and Kevin Murphy, along with award-winning looks from the duo who won the British Hairdressing Awards Men’s Hairdresser of the Year. We were also lucky enough to talk with industry icon Robert Lobetta, who is now the Creative Visionary for Sebastian Professional. See our Renaissance Man interview on page 26. One of my favourite features is our A-Z of Summer Beauty (page 114). If you’re looking for a skincare regime overhaul, gorgeous new lip colour or just want to keep updated on the latest beauty innovations, we’ve got it covered. Enjoy and have a fabulous summer.

Enriched with Hair Energy Complex for a toned scalp and healthier, stronger hair, this leave-on tonic increases the diameter of the hair fibre, expanding it from the first application. 18 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

Shine Renewal

Colour That Cares

Davines Alchemic relaunches, with greater conditioning effects and higher-performing shine. Intensifying, toning and enhancing colour on all hair types, Alchemic’s formulations are now up to 98% biodegradable and 95% naturally-derived, with a more intense concentration of pure pigments. The shampoos and conditioners come in six colour families: red, copper, chocolate, tobacco, golden and silver, and can be blended for customised tones. Packed with jojoba oil and B vitamins, hair is left shiny, hydrated and protected.

La Biosthetique’s partnership with ‘Doctors Without Borders’ is making an impact on communities in need, one colour at a time. The emergency aid organisation spans 70 countries and provides medical relief for natural disasters, epidemics and famines. For each La Biosthetique colour service, a percentage of the colour tube cost is donated. For example, a full head colour can provide the equivalent of four malaria diagnostic kits. La Biosthetique’s goal is to provide one million emergency nutrition packs by 2021.

Hair Rehab We love the Hot Tresses range, which combines organic botanical ingredients with vegan proteins and carefully selected vitamin supplements. The quantity of each ingredient is balanced so the product as a whole has the highest efficacy when it comes to cleansing, unravelling, healing and smoothing hair. Hot Tresses was created so women can rely less on heat-styling, using these sulphate-free, rehab-style products instead to create ultimate smoothing and return hair to optimal condition.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS We love the new Anderson Reception Desk from Comfortel’s Natural Scandiinspired salon furniture range. A refined beauty with an ash timber-look finish, high-gloss shelving and loads of storage space, we recommend pairing it with the new Mesh Metal Retail Boxes in matte white. Stylish, inviting and practical.

24 HOURS A day in the life of Mana Dave, but not just any day. The colourist, salon owner and educator takes us through his journey from finalist through to Colour Vision Platinum winner, at the Wella International Trend Vision Awards in London @MANADAVE

7AM: Rise and shine. It’s competition day at the Wella International Trend Vision Awards! I’ve just woken up and I’ve been asleep for two hours. I was colouring my model Clare’s hair all last night. Half of the colour I did while she lay asleep on her bed (the jet lag has really kicked in for her) and that’s definitely not easy. Mental note: I should suggest to Wella there needs to be an award for this newly acquired skill. Time to make sure that Clare is feeling fresh, fed and ready for me to finish some colour work before our call time of 8.00am! 8:30AM: So we’re basically half an hour past our call time. We’ve taken multi-tasking to a whole new level - hair colouring, leg shaving, facial, teeth brushing all at once. We’ve just finished the colour, rinsed it off in the hotel room shower, and are racing over to the venue. Fortunately, we are staying right next door to the Excel Exhibition Centre and it’s a 5 minute brisk walk/semi-jog to get there. 10AM: The Wella ITVA competition is underway! We started at 9am with a big cheer from all of the competitors on the floor and we’re an hour deep. They have us split into the Colour category and Creative category and we’re right in the middle of the Salon International Exhibition floor, so there is a huge crowd around the perimeter watching us. They have us arranged alphabetically by country so I can see Jack Horton, the Aussie ‘Colour’ finalist over on the other aisle from me working on his model; she looks stunning. I can’t see where our ANZ ‘Creative’ finalists Kylie or Beau are as there are too many bodies, mirrors and outfits blocking my view, but I’m sure they’re making hair magic happen. Out of the corner of my eye I can see the judging panel working their way through the aisles and chatting with each contestant. It will be my turn soon. 11AM: The judges are here. I’m familiar with the work of most of them, especially Andreas Kurkowitz, Wella Global Colour Ambassador, and colour icon Annie Humphries. My makeup artist Abbie and I have planned it so we have a really good ‘face’ on Clare before the judges arrive and I’ve got most of her hair where I want it to be, just so they have a clear idea of what she’ll look like. They ask me questions and I tell them about my interpretation of the Optical Illusion trend with Clare’s look. I chat about how I believe vertical colour is starting to trend; we joke around a little and then they move on. I wonder to myself if I’ve said everything I needed to say.

12PM: Time’s up! Well that’s the competition done. Clare looks in person how I envisioned her in my mind. She’s radiating confidence and beauty. I’m proud of what Abbie and I have managed to pull together in three hours this morning and countless hours of precision colour work beforehand. Time for the official photos, then an hour posing for Clare in the auditorium before some much needed food. It’s a slow process though, people keep stopping Clare to have a photo with her. 3:30PM: We’ve done our Walk of Fame, where they announce your country. You walk out on stage and your model takes to the runway. Clare looks amazing and she definitely knows how to work a catwalk. Her outfit from my stylist Kiri floats on stage. Now it’s time for the Parade of Nations; it’s just like the Olympics where each country enters the stadium waving their national flag. Despite what you may think, it’s actually a really incredible moment and makes you feel proud to be a Kiwi representing our industry - definitely a selfie moment. This needs to go on my Insta-story! 5PM: We won! I’m standing on stage gobsmacked because I can’t believe that we’ve won the Platinum Colour Award. Wow, 10 years in the making. To top that off, my fellow Kiwi Kylie Hayes has scored the Platinum Award for the Creative category. So it’s an unprecedented double win for NZ! More press photos, interviews, lots of handshakes, hugs and kisses. Time for a quick nap before our ANZ team dinner (the two hours of sleep is starting to catch up with me now). RECREATE THE LOOK PRODUCTS USED BY MANA INCLUDED WELLA PROFESSIONALS EIMI STAY STYLED, THERMAL IMAGE, PERFECT ME, GLAM MIST & SUGAR LIFT


“The Parade of Nations is a really incredible moment and makes you feel proud to be a Kiwi representing our industry.”

True to form, I slept through my alarm and I was late for our celebratory dinner. Had an authentic English gastropub meal at Admirals in Trafalgar Square with the entire team, including our Wella mentor Lyndal Salmon, Frank Apostolopoulos, Renya Xydis and Eugene Souleiman. The food was amazing! 11PM: We’re at the iconic Troxys for the ITVA Afterparty. It’s universal, hairdressers from every part of the world know how to party. I’m allowing myself one drink, my eyes are so heavy now. I catch up with Sylvie Moreau, the Global Vice President of Wella and she is so lovely and generous with her compliments. I swear she must have an amazing memory to remember everyone like she does. I decide that’s a great way to wrap up my night. 1AM: Back in bed at the Aloft Hotel. What a crazy, fantastic day! To think that 24 hours ago I was wondering if I was even going to get Clare’s hair colour done and now we’ve actually won! Time to sleep, I have to be up in 5 hours to pack and get my flight to Melbourne. Night xx




Robert Lobetta is one of the most eclectic, celebrated and influential figures in the world of hairdressing. As the new Global Creative Visionary for Sebastian Professional, Lobetta talks to us about his personal evolution, creative process and passion for the industry





obert Lobetta – hairdresser, photographer, artist and rebel - has returned to Sebastian Professional as Creative Visionary, introducing his fierce, unique style and uncompromising standards to a whole new generation, while shaping the future of the brand he began collaborating with in 1985. The iconic images he created as a hairdresser, photographer, designer and conceptualizer challenged, sometimes enraged, and often inspired viewers to leave the traditional definitions of hair fashion behind. For many hairdressers, Lobetta’s Sebastian work is what motivated them to push beyond the boundaries of the craft to become genuine image-makers. Sebastian Professional Creative Director Brad Lepper and Headway editor Charmaine Guest join forces to interview this fascinating hair legend. What do you think makes Sebastian Professional unique to other hair brands? Sebastian Professional has a strong sense of culture; culture is our company’s unique character, our lifeblood, our DNA, the story of our history, values, aspirations, beliefs and endeavors. I believe that character can be thought of as one’s destiny, and culture can be thought of as the destiny of a new Sebastian Professional.


What’s a typical week in the life of Robert Lobetta like? I’m at a stage in my life where I’ve realised there are certain things that govern my world. I love that time just before I wake up, when I’m in that semi-conscious state and my mind is most fertile. The ideas that evolve in that time often set the tone of the day. I love my chocolate mousse at 7am whilst sitting outside a café. I love a small glass of wine just before dinner, then lashings of it whilst I am having dinner. I love playing tennis on Saturday morning and debating with people over the dinner table. I love coming up with poetic gestures that make me smile. I love starting new projects with those of a similar mindset. I love my wife’s cooking. I love searching out moments that might take me in a direction that I never thought I would pursue. Oh, somewhere in the middle of all this, I manage to get some work done. What is inspiring you in your work currently? If we are to continue exploring our creativity and still be inspired, it is often due to our ability to have conversations with people in the world of connectivity and collaboration. My success is just a product of my collaboration with people - it is so much about their input, not just my own. The work that is generated is not for me only, it is for others, which becomes really interesting




40 Hair | PROFILE








because once you feel deeply connected with your audience, everything changes. I am inspired by collaborating with likeminded people and being able to share can give us a feeling of trust and engagement with one another. Once you begin to unlock the future of possibilities with your co-collaborators, you might just start saying that anything is possible. How do you think your hairdressing style has evolved over the years? I don’t believe in having just one style because our style is similar to our taste. To a degree, I think we inherit our style and our taste comes ‘along for the ride’. I find that I am always on a path that is permanently evolving, which in turn causes my taste to change at any given time. I believe the changes we go through are made up from a collection of experiences that occur as we go through life. I am continually trying to develop new aesthetics, while my eyes are constantly looking for new possibilities. What is your creative process when developing and creating a collection? I am always looking for a modicum of control in whatever I’m trying to achieve, but as soon as there is a hint of chaos, there seems to be more spontaneity. It’s not that I prefer chaos, I just prefer what comes out of it naturally. Control gives me a good sense of balance. The key for me when developing a new idea or visual is not to control the chaos, but to listen carefully where it wants to take you. Getting the balance right between these two disciplines teaches us not to work in circles. If you had to pick your top three Sebastian Professional products of all-time, what would they be? Shaper Hair Sprays, Dark Oil, and Craft Clay What do you know now that you wish you knew when you first started hairdressing? One of my biggest revelations was understanding how to overcome a creative black hole. I realised my best work was the outcome of some of my biggest struggles. Most of these blocks were performance-related stress. I came to the conclusion that these blocks were crucial in coming up with something new. Now when I fall into the black hole, I no longer panic but see it as an opportunity to re-calibrate, re-think, re-evaluate and come up with something totally different.

What changes can we expect to see having you back as the creative influence for Sebastian Professional? In order to be successful, you have to have a strong vision. Right now we’re working our way through many different ideas on how to make those changes happen. We believe that vision is everything. Vision can ignite the human spirit, generating hope and inspiration that can fill us all with passion. When we give a project a purpose, it has the ability to turn our company into a cause. Vision is about destroying our current reality to create tomorrow’s future and it takes courage to conceptualise a bold new vision and bring it to life, so let’s see if we can make this happen.

Natural Luxury Nicki Kelly has combined her passion for beautiful, affordable luxury with clean, naturallybased haircare. We talk to Nicki about the rapid growth of the Beauty Dust Co. brand @BEAUTYDUST.ME

WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND IN THE PROFESSIONAL HAIR INDUSTRY? I was co-founder and brand-driver of a multiple award-winning blow dry bar. I’m so proud to have been part of creating such an innovative and successful retail concept; it’s what led me to this next step. WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO CREATE THE BEAUTY DUST CO. BRAND? Drawing on previous product and retail expertise, I started with a couple of key products that I knew the market needed. Once we were on the journey, there were several categories we wanted to tick off to evolve into a meaningful brand. We wanted customers to experience the best of the best in hair care without it costing a fortune. Our brand delivers premium performance as an affordable luxury. Our customers should always feel great and look beautiful when using Beauty Dust Co. products. YOUR FIRST PRODUCT, BEAUTY DUST ROOT COVER UP, HAS BEEN A HUGE SUCCESS. WHAT DO YOU CREDIT THIS TO? It’s a beautiful, functional, affordable product that solves a big problem: regrowth in between salon appointments. Most people prefer a powder like ours as it’s not messy at all and leaves the hair feeling natural. We continue to evolve our ingredients across all our products to improve performance and lighten our impact on the environment. Our most recent formula is now Palm Oil-free. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE THE NEWEST BEAUTY DUST CO. PRODUCTS: CLEANSE & CONDITION? We created our Clean Natural Haircare as I tried several ‘all natural’ shampoos and conditioners and they didn’t really deliver for me. I also wanted a product you can use on hair extensions, and was sodium chloride free that you can use on keratin-treated hair. Our Cleanse & Condition ticks all the boxes and is also not harmful to the environment. WHAT MAKES THE BEAUTY DUST CO. BRAND AND THE PRODUCTS UNIQUE? We are very lucky our brand works across a lot of different retail channels. We are stocked in the very best department stores, boutiques, salons and online retailers; thankfully, the products are working across them all. We also work with the best suppliers to produce premium, beautiful products. As we evolve we aim for natural but in some products it’s not possible, so we do the best we can to reduce impact for our own health and the environment. A huge amount of love and time is spent developing every product and we’re constantly thinking of our customers’ needs. We travel the world searching for the best combination of ingredients to create the best in beauty. WHAT’S NEXT FOR BEAUTY DUST CO.? We have grown very quickly and want to continue that journey with the right salon partners. We’ve had meetings and contact with some of the best retailers in the world in the last couple of weeks so are just working on the next best steps.

I N S PI R AT I O N A bohemian attitude infiltrates this dynamic collection, which takes inspiration from uniqueness and non-conformity. The Individualists is a nod to free-spirited stylista’s who can raid any closet and throw together a timeless look – think Edie Campbell as your modern-day muse. Colour is injected into the collection via a kaleidoscope of muted gemstone colours; worn-in, tarnished and beautiful.




Competitive Edge Dunedin salon owner Kylie Hayes took out the momentous Creative Visionary Platinum title at the 2017 Wella International Trend Vision Awards in London. Kylie chats to us about her amazing win, what inspires her and her favourite things


ongratulations on your amazing win! HOW DOES IT FEEL? It is a privilege to be recognised as a leading industry creative. To have one of your favourite creatives (Eugene Souleiman) announce your name as the Platinum winner at the Wella International Trend Vision Awards was phenomenal! I’m on an incredible journey. HOW DID YOU FIND THE LEAD-UP TO THE AWARDS EVENING? Honestly, I had said I was winning Platinum when we first shot the image back in March. I couldn’t imagine anything more innovative, so I was really confident with my look. I honestly believe this was my time. WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WINNING LOOK? I pride myself on being a visionary, creating unseen innovative looks. My model allowed me to have my two favourite haircuts collide - the bowl cut and the mullet – which were fused together to create the bùllet (pronounced boo-lay). WHAT WERE YOUR MUST-HAVE WELLA PRODUCTS IN CREATING YOUR STYLE? Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Me, a delicate, lightweight hair smoothing lotion. It adds shine and protects hair from the heat of styling tools. Also, Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Styled Hairspray to set the look. WERE YOU INSPIRED BY MANY OF THE OTHER FINALIST CREATIONS? I loved the winner of Creative Vision Gold, Gisleine Bernhardt from Brazil. Her look resonated with my aesthetic, daring to be different. I held my breath when I saw her model from a distance. The colour work from Taiwan was effortless and of course, Mana and his team always produce an inspiring story. APART FROM YOUR WIN, WHAT WERE SOME OF THE OTHER HIGHLIGHTS FROM YOUR TRIP? The next night, the winners were the opening act for the Alternative Hair Show. We were invited to walk the stage of the Royal Albert Hall to the applause of two thousand guests – amazing! WHAT IS THE ONE LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED FROM WINNING THIS AWARD? It has once again reinforced my idea that we all have our place in the industry. I’m known for my forward-thinking, progressive, ‘ugly beautiful’ looks. It’s not everyone’s taste but we should all appreciate each other’s art; they always say ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder.’ WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE FOR THOSE ENTERING NEXT YEAR? Really think about your total look and the story you want to portray. I often see people let their hair look down by not being totally cohesive from head to toe. 38 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

SMOOTH OPERATOR Cezanne is changing the keratin smoothing treatment landscape, with a unique formulation and amazing hair benefits


s long-lasting as the current top formaldehyde keratin smoothing treatments in the category, Cezanne is something of a breakthrough. 100% formaldehyde-free, non-toxic, safe and effective, with no vapours, Cezanne actually strengthens the hair. Using a revolutionary low pH technology that restores bonds that are broken or damaged during thermal, mechanical or high pH services, Cezanne treatments bring shine and life back to hair, enhance colour and repair damage. Best of all, there is no down time. Clients can shampoo, work out or go swimming directly after their treatment. Cezanne is also unique in terms of its smoothing treatment formulation, using a proprietary blend composed of Aloe Vera, Sericin (a component of silk), keratin, Glycolic Acid, vitamins, and botanical extracts. To find out more, we chat to Tash Horomia from Colleen salon in Auckland, their resident salon Cezanne expert.

Why did you choose the Cezanne system for your salon? I love that Cezanne has been formulated as a safe alternative to formaldehydebased treatments. It still delivers amazing results but clients and stylists can be confident knowing Cezanne are completely transparent about their ingredients. I find it reassuring they’ve had independent testing done on their products too. You can find the results of these on their website.

“Best of all, there is no down time. Clients can shampoo, work out or go swimming directly after their treatment.”

What is Sericin? Sericin is a natural protein produced by the silk worm, Bombyx mori. In silk, Sericin acts as cement between filaments of fibroin. Sericin possesses a high affinity for hair keratin. This protein acts as cement between reticulated proteins, sealing in moisture, adding lustre, protecting bonds, and locking hair into a smoother, straighter form. There is no other smoothing product that uses Sericin in the way it’s used in Cezanne.


How does it compare to other systems you have tried before? There’s no down

time with Cezanne! Anything is possible after the treatment is completed. It’s great to be able to wash and restyle, apply a colour service or even just pull the hair into a ponytail. My clients can just walk out of the salon and go about their life as normal. With other products, I’d have to send them home with a list of things they weren’t allowed to do.

What has the client feedback been like? Clients love the fact there’s no unpleasant smell; not only great for the person receiving the treatment, but for other clients in the salon. Also, people with unruly hair love that they can wash and dry their hair naturally and are falling back in love with their natural texture. How has it assisted you in the salon? Aside from the decreased drying and styling time, the best thing has been giving my clients style options that were previously unattainable or unmanageable. I’ve been able to use partial applications to give a client with an unruly hairline the fringe they always wanted, and clients with thick, wavy hair a short, sleek style with minimal effort.

Salon Ruggeri, New York Relax and escape the chaos of Manhattan as Sharleen Singh discovers an interiorlover’s dream in the city that never sleeps. @SALONRUGGERINYC


ased in the rapidly up-and-coming NoMad (North of Madison Square Park), is a colourful retreat amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. Salon Ruggeri is the brainchild of hairstylist Gregoria Ruggeri and interior designer Craig Longhurst, who made the trip from Sydney, Australia to the concrete jungle of Manhattan.

THE JOURNEY With an extensive background in interior design and architecture, Longhurst opened ‘Soda Sisters’, an iconic Melbourne hotspot, commonly used for TV and film shoots, before moving on to become the Sales and Marketing Director for Herman Miller in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Ruggeri began his trek to the top as an assistant in his mother’s salon at the age of 13, eventually apprenticing at an upscale salon in Sydney’s chic Paddington district. Within only a few years, Ruggeri was a full-time hairstylist, and also trained as a makeup artist, working on shoots for Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. In 2005, Ruggeri opened his own salon with interior designer and partner (now husband) Craig Longhurst in a Victorian townhouse in Sydney. After five 42 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

successful years, Ruggeri and Longhurst brought their salon to New York City and opened Salon Ruggeri in August 2010.

IMPECCABLE DÉCOR After numerous queries by clients on where their lively and intimate décor came from, the duo decided to offer their beautiful pieces for sale; a perfect harmony of both of their natural talents. This resulted in more than just stylish haircuts; clients could now return home with a gorgeous head of hair and a piece of stunning artwork or furniture. Those that visit the art-gallery-esque space describe it as resembling a playful, modern, impeccably-designed home, as well as a well-appointed salon. The furnishings are periodically rearranged or replaced to keep the look fresh - a constantly evolving space.

FULL OF TALENT Perfecting the fine art of aesthetics has always been important to the duo. You’ll also find the same perfection in Salon Ruggeri’s dedicated and closeknit team. The salon offers signature men’s and women’s haircutting and colouring techniques, and the Ruggeri Exclusive, which involves David Mallett ultra-hydrating, frizz-taming and hair repairing treatments.

HAND-PICKED ESSENTIALS Amongst the stylish décor you’ll find exclusive hair accessories and wellchosen hair care products from brands such as Christophe Robin, EVO Hair, and R+Co. You’ll also find a selection of vintage sunglasses, jewellery, fragrances, Fornasetti candles, and more.

Powered By Nature Organic Colour Systems is the pioneer of naturally-based, organic haircare. Australasia Group Manager for OCS, Vicki King, shares their philosophy and introduces their breakthrough hair loss innovation, Rep-Hair. @ORGANICCOLOURSYSTEMSNZ

WITH NATURAL AND ORGANIC PRODUCTS BEING THE FASTEST-GROWING CATEGORY IN THE HAIRCARE INDUSTRY, HOW DOES ORGANIC COLOUR SYSTEMS DIFFER FROM OTHER BRANDS? Ethics and intent of the company behind the brand is one of the standout features of Organic Colour Systems. Refusing to use ingredients tested on animals, eliminating high levels of synthetic chemicals, recycling, using certified organic ingredients (that cost a lot more than non-certified by the way), sourcing local ingredients, manufacturing our own products - we’ve been doing this for decades. We’re not in this because it’s on-trend or the market demands it. We’re here because we believe hairdressers and clients shouldn’t be exposed to highlevel, potentially harmful synthetics every day. That depth of care is the heart of this brand’s conception. WHICH INGREDIENTS ARE MAKING AN IMPACT IN NATURAL AND ORGANIC HAIRCARE RIGHT NOW? There are too many to name. As more people continue to demand organic and natural over synthetic, the market is finally realising the incredible healing and protective properties of quinoa, sunflower seed, aloe, comfrey root, baobab, willow bark, fennel seed...the list goes on. The most exciting one for us at the moment is red clover. THINNING HAIR IS A HUGE CONCERN FOR MANY MEN AND WOMEN. TELL US ABOUT NEW REP-HAIR, WHICH ADDRESSES THIS ISSUE. Organic Colour Systems Rep-Hair is a follicle strengthening system that rivals conventional anti-hair loss products. Its main active ingredient, Capixyl, incorporates red clover to reduce hair loss and stimulate natural hair growth. Each kit provides 60 days use and if used continuously as directed, noticeable results should be seen within 4-16 weeks. HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OTHER HAIR LOSS PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET? It’s natural! There’s nothing else like it that delivers the results we’re seeing. Rep-Hair combines natural and organic extracts carefully selected for their nourishing, strengthening, conditioning and cleansing properties, as well as their ability to protect the scalp and reduce inflammation of the hair follicle. The before and after pics are flooding in now from people using the system, and the results are breathtaking. You’ll start seeing these soon on our social media pages. WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT IN TERMS OF WHAT’S NEXT FOR OCS? We’re about to introduce our mentor programme to New Zealand which sees our Kiwi hairdressers become an integral part of our global education and creative initiatives. We’ve established a pretty special OCS family here; this initiative will work to extend that bond across country borders, and take our salon education to another level. 46 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

What do you love most about being part of the Wella family? I love that Wella always makes you feel part of something. They have treated me like family since the day we joined. The encouragement and creative support has helped me reach a level of skill I would never have dreamed possible. I truly have a second family when I need it; right down to ringing my rep Justin for a life or business debrief. He is never too busy to answer my call.

calibre of entries, from the semi-finalists to the winners, inspires hairdressers all over the world.

How did you know that Wella was the right fit for you? Wella is there for the hairdresser and helps us to be the best version of ourselves. The company continually challenges the industry and is truly innovative when it come to new ideas. As stylists, we are given the tools to stay at the peak of our game and our photographic and competition work reflects this. Wella products perform above expectations every time, making stylists confident to deliver client’s wishes and more. In 2015, you won Wella Trend Vision Young Talent Gold at the international finals in Berlin. What was this experience like and what impact did it have on your career? This was an outcome I couldn’t have dreamt of. It blew my mind when it was announced that my country had won, and I was on stage with one of my biggest idols, Wella Professionals Global Creative Director, Eugene Souleiman. This was a complete game-changer and helped me realise my true aesthetic. It has not only opened creative doors within the industry, but new business avenues as well. I was invited to present at many public speaking events, inspiring other stylists to face challenges head on. Having people recognise my work on an international level was not only inspiring, but made me want to educate others creatively. Why do you think Trend Vision is so important for the NZ hairdressing industry? Wella Trend Vision has no boundaries and


encourages us to explore our creativity further, at the highest level. When I won, I lived in a small town of 12,000 people.

You were chosen to be part of the Wella/UNICEF ‘Making Waves’ Program this year. Can you tell us about your experience and what it involved? Making Waves supports young people from the poorest and most vulnerable communities. Wella stylists from around the world share their skills and train young people to become hairdressers. In August, our team of 13 hairdressers travelled to Cambodia to provide intensive hairdressing mentoring to 19 students in a supportive, safe environment. Watching these young, at-risk students learn a trade skill that can change their lives and help their families for generations was such a rush! I felt humbled, happy, inspired and angry at the same time. The positive emotion was seeing them achieve, but the anger came from feeling overwhelmed by guilt, because of the life we have at home. Our wonderful students responded and learnt so quickly. We were all in tears of pride watching them most days. Their hearts are so kind and open and they were so grateful to be a part of the program. They were fast learners, delivering high quality work; when they achieved something, they were elated and would throw their arms around you and squeal with excitement! They knew this was going to change their life. Making Waves means so much to me and holds a massive place in my heart. I have never been so moved, or functioned at that level of emotion before. I felt so proud to be helping change lives with a partner like Wella to support us. What are your goals for the future? My main goal is to give back more; to be a part of Making Waves again, no matter how small the involvement, and to ensure I appreciate every person who comes into my life. I will continue to push my own personal creative boundaries to achieve a new level of success and to get out of my creative comfort zone more often! HEADWAY.NET.NZ 59

MODERN GLAMOUR Super-simple, super-cool and super-classic, modern glamour takes over in the most subtle ways this season. The term ‘easy luxury’ was used repeatedly in reference to the SS18 Versace show featuring the work of the man we all adore, Guido Palau. The perfect power couple really…









Paint Reminding all super artists (aka stylists) the hair painting trend is still huge. Free hand and usually with an actual paint brush, this technique is for those with a natural eye or those super-trained by one of the greats.

Effortless Flyaways Hair inspired by Tarantino films was the inspiration of Acne Studios S/S 2018 catwalk, presented in a very French, very effortless way by the Stockholm team. The feathery fringes had a 70s vibe (love) and much like the city of Paris, the look was classic, chic, unpredictable and incredibly sexy…




BEST SS2018… …had to be Philipp Plein’s NYC show which we were still scrolling through weeks later. It was unforgettable (for many reasons) #GoodGoneBad @philipppleininternational. Check out the Rapunzel meets rock ‘n roll look – you’ll be hooked. HEADWAY.NET.NZ 61


@dereklam @MARCJACOBS

Hair Pieces Whilst D&G have always been the leaders in extraordinary head and hair pieces, it seems everyone is on board this season and the looks just go on and on. From Queen of the Fairies with luscious flowers, to scrunchies, barrettes and then leather and velvet for a more edgy look, the hair is simple and accessories are over the top. So much fun!













Air-dried runway looks avoided using heat styling tools for the ultimate natural look, whilst the ‘Lazy Wave” was anything but, with its powerful side part that screamed attitude. Whether we embraced it or not, the natural look was the biggest force on the runway this season, flowing free and full of movement. @TOPSHOP

Framed designer headbands were labelled French Riveria 40s or a 90s take on a 60s look. Whatever the editorial or era, the new take on grown up hair was certainly something the Desperate Housewives team of the future could easily pull off. What did stand out was the glowing skin with the trend – stunning.





We asked a selection of hair industry aficionados for their take on the hottest colour picks for 2018. Here’s what they had to say…



Sara Allsop, co-owner Dharma 2018 is going to bring about the sun, with golds, bronzes, creamy tones and golden toffee blondes to give the ‘tiger’s eye’ tones we’ve been seeing a lot of from summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

40 Hair | FOCUS

3 Mana Dave, owner Blaze Hair & Redken Artistic Director The buzz words when talking summer hair are peach and champagne. Peach is perfect for those wanting to channel this season’s version of rose gold with more of an orange/copper hue. Champagne is the flavour of choice for blondes, with a beige rather than icy or gold appearance in tone. Those craving an edgier vibe take inspiration from the graphite smoky ombre trend. There is also an emerging trend towards vertical colouring, referencing the Spice Girl stripes of the mid-90s but with a more refined approach. The vertical placement offers a number of options when combined with hair contouring to enhance the face shape.


4 Rebecca Brent, owner of Wills York & L’Oréal Professionnel Ambassdor I always look at interior home colour trends for what’s happening in hair and fashion next. Pastel colours are always in fashion and now it’s all about soft watercolours, pale millennial pinks, peach, pale sky blue, sage green, dusty lilac and dove grey. For dark haired beauties, jewel-toned hair, greens, turquoise, charcoal and dark grey mauve/midnight violet with a chalky-looking finish.


Jock Robson, co-owner Dharma Colours that look like they have been created by the elements; surfer blondes with deeper roots that seamlessly transition into the lighter tone. Balayage techniques aren’t going anywhere either.



Looking to the runways, there’s a real mix of 60s, 70s and 90s aesthetic creeping into fashion; gauche, highglam and glitter. This means hair colour may tend to be more pared back and subtle. Earthier and more natural colours will help ground the high fashion and make it more wearable.

5 Karine Jackson, Organic Colour Systems Brand Ambassador 2018 will see a display of rich, bright shades coming through. Bold, block colours, using colour meshing techniques, will be the favoured looks this year.

9 Kelly Manu, Blaze Hair The hottest trend on the runway this season was rose quartz, created by Redken’s Global Colour Creative Director, Josh Wood for Alexander Wang S/S 2018. Josh describes this colour as “pink, violet, and coral, one transposed over the next.” For dark hair, burnt coppers and rich burgundies are trending. Used together or alone, these colours are all about saturation and glossiness; combine multiple tones to give an expensive, customised feel.

11 Michael Beel, Creative Director Buoy Salon & Spa Platinum white hair. The full head bleach is making a resurgence and I see this as being a focal point for 2018. Also, acid hair. Bold cuts and colours will feature heavily: think synthetic cherry red, petrol-toned purples, highlighter pink and neon yellow. The 80s is back!


Unexpected Familiar By KEVIN MURPHY

I N S PI R ATI O N “The futuristic set in ‘Unexpected Familiar’ draws inspiration from a 1980s design movement called ‘Memphis’, which in turn was inspired by a merging of Art Deco and Pop Art culture,” says Kevin Murphy of his latest campaign collection. “These heavily misunderstood design groups influenced the 80s in many ways; from furniture to art and home-wares. For this shoot, we leaned nostalgically back to these movements, juxtaposing them with echoes of the 60s to deliver a new modernity. The collection defines and showcases our high-end products and treatments with a collection of sophisticated styles that are both unexpected and familiar.”


The Best of the Bob From timeless and elegant through to edgy and playful, the bob is the most iconic cut of all-time. 100 years on and it’s still going strong


he bob originated around 100 years ago and became very popular in the early 1920s. Bobby pins (or bob pins) were originally used to ‘bob’ hair into a shorter looking shape and eventually it became popular to cut the hair short. Today, you could ask a room of people to show you a picture of a bob, and you’d find probably 30 different versions, some of which barely resemble a bob. Today, we celebrate the best of the bob. That short sharp jawline or (longer) cut that is synonymous with chic. No story about this iconic haircut would be complete without mentioning the most influential (and perhaps most intimidating) bob of all; that belonging to Vogue editor, Anna Wintour. Her thick hair has long been cut blunt into a sharp jaw-length bob with square bangs. You almost immediately identify the haircut with fashion authority. Taylor Swift adopted the same cut, but somehow it just made her look a bit mumsy. One of my all-time favourite haircuts was Linda Evangelista’s short, sharp French bob. Rich and dark, with short bangs, it was exotically technical and undeniably sophisticated. At the same time playful and chic, her chameleon years were highlighted by a series of iconic bob-length haircuts. Victoria Beckham, when she was better 70 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

known as Posh Spice, popularised the concave bob. Cut shorter at the nape with an A-line shape longer at the front, her sleek locks were the signature for her character at the time. Today the bob can be tailored to suit your face and your personality. It can be vintage or modern, timeless or right now. Changing the texture, adding curl or wave, or shifting the parting are all ways


that the humble bob can be changed up from day to day. Different lengths, layers, cutting techniques and an array of fringes can turn what seems like a simple cut into a truly versatile option for clients wanting to have easier hair to manage but still want some versatility.

Biba’s Avril Maleham says it would be impossible for her to pick her favourite bob of all-time but “the biggest inspiration for me was the asymmetric bob created by Vidal Sassoon in the 60s. This was when a haircut became so much more than a practicality, and Sassoon pushed all the boundaries to create interesting looks to enhance women's natural beauty and facial features. Right now, we are loving softer, more disconnected versions of the classic A-line bob, bringing it up-to-date with lots of texture and beautiful undone styling.”

Hair Expo NZ Hairdresser of the Year, Danny Pato from D&M, says bobs are always in fashion, but “my fave new bob style is a short bob, with the length cut just below the bottom of the ear. It’s cute and youthful with a bit of an edge, worn with a side or centre part, styled sleek or tousled. You can see the strong presence of the bob on the catwalks of Céline and Balenciaga. Celebrities rocking the look include Jourdan Dunn, Emma Roberts, Diane Kruger and Bella Hadid.” 1 Sebastian Professional Dark Oil. 2 Wella Professional EIMI Body Crafter. 3 Davines Your Hair Assistant Blowdry Primer. 4 Matrix Style Link Mineral Mess Maker. 5 ELEVEN Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum. 6 Paul Mitchell Awapuhi High-Gloss Primer. 7 Organic Colour Systems Control Shape.

What do you love most about your role? Heading an iconic premium brand across both Australia and New Zealand that is only 16 years young, yet is the leader in its category, is as well-known as the Apple brand, is requested by consumers in salons, is loved by stylists and is adored and desired by all age groups equally makes it quite a treat, don’t you think? I also enjoy the challenge of developing the brand and continuing this journey through strong innovation and being a step ahead of a very disrupted, yet exciting and changing, consumer market. Most of all, I love assisting salons to generate an important part of their retail sales. With the new ownership of ghd by Coty Professional Beauty, what advantages will Coty bring to the table?

ghd gold is your latest exciting innovation. Can you tell us more about it? ghd always strives to develop their product range, looking to advance its technology to ensure optimum results for professional stylists and consumers. The ghd V gold styler is our mid-tier,

number one-selling styler, with over 7 million units sold globally. In the pursuit of advancement and innovation, ghd has enhanced its iconic styler and upgraded the technology, design and performance. The new ghd gold is now proven to leave hair smoother, sleeker and healthier looking*.

It will allow for clearer differentiation between our range and having a selection of stylers offers consumers a choice at varying price points, depending upon their needs. The ghd original styler (previously called ghd IV styler) is our entry-level product for sleek and smooth everyday styles, whilst ghd platinum is our hero, giving ultimate results for healthier hair. Consumer demand for the new ghd gold has already been proven, with 8 out of 10 women preferring the new gold to their current styler (a mix of brands) and willing to trade in and trade up.

February and March. We have an ‘always on’ education approach with our online customer portal - ghd world - offering learning modules and fast-paced ‘how to’ videos. We also recently partnered with the online education booking platform, Piloroo, allowing salon owners to book our revered brand warriors for evening, full or half day education sessions to empower their stylists.

“Our team of educators and brand warriors will deliver in-salon sessions, starting with ‘The Golden Experience’ in February and March.”

What are your education plans for 2018? The delivery of education has changed across all industries and salon is no different. We acknowledge this and have evolved our education to meet the needs and convenience of salon owners and stylists. Our team of educators and style warriors will deliver in-salon sessions, starting with ‘The Golden Experience’ in

You have an amazing line-up of NZ and Australian guest artists and ambassadors. Why do you think they love working with ghd? ghd has always been a desired and respected leader in the thermal heatstyling category. Our amazing team of ambassadors and guest artists love working with our brand because of its innovative range of tools. From Richard Kavanagh, our Creative Director, and Jayne Wild, our Brand Ambassador, through to our new guest artists, Brad Lepper and Brodi-Lee Stubbins, ghd lets them express their talent and creativity, teach and inspire stylists, whilst having fun within an environment

that is dynamic, daring and a little cheeky. What is the most important focus for you over the coming year? Although we are a market leader, there is no time for complacency and my team know that. We are constantly evolving to the changing consumer and business landscape. We will continue to lead in product innovation and quality, innovative education, and support our salon partners through disruptive marketing campaigns and offer enhanced in-salon support tools, such as our online customer portal, ghd world. The portal has been developed for salons to connect with the ghd brand 24/7 and help grow their business. What can we look forward to from ghd in 2018? 2018 is very exciting for the ghd brand. In true fashion, we are entering a space of big innovation; innovation that will improve the in-salon styling process, lead in educating and supporting stylists, whilst driving consumer demand for strong commercial outcomes. Watch this space! **In a test of 128 consumers, significantly more consumers agreed that ghd gold was better than ghd V styler for leaving hair sleeker, smoother, shinier and healthier-looking.


Brad Lepper has joined the ghd brand warrior team. We asked him for the low-down on the new ghd gold, which he has been trialling in his salon, French Revolver, and what he’s enjoying most about being part of the ghd family


fter using the new ghd gold for the last two months, it is now my 'goto' iron. The heat feels smooth and consistent on each motion through the sections and when curling, I'm finding the flow through the hair is more controlled because of no hot spots. Direction is more precise moving up and down the strand to create the movement I'm going for. In my eyes, this is the best iron on the market right now. I'm really excited to be part of the ghd education platform and through my career, I've found ghd a game-changer in the industry. I'm really excited to see the new developments and innovations they are embarking on in the next few years. I'm finding with my global pursuits, these tools are a great alignment for me with Sebastian Professional, due to needing a high-end, high-performing hot tool range to ensure my looks are world-class and stage-ready. When educating, you must use the absolute best and I think ghd innovation keeps you ahead of the trend.”

RETURN OF THE BARBERSHOP The cultural resurgence of men’s grooming has made a huge impact on the industry. What does that mean for 2018? Read on…


ho would have thought that realtors, brokers and landlords are perhaps the biggest beneficiaries from the resurgence of the barbershop? We’re not just talking as customers but literally as those making some big coin out of men’s grooming. With men’s grooming estimated to reach $USD26 billion by 2020, a recent Forbes article opened our eyes to the obvious. For landlords around the world who are losing retail tenants left right and centre due to online purchasing trends, they’ve realised haircuts and beauty treatments cannot be bought online. A visit to a grooming expert is required in order for the transaction to take place. That expert has to have a chair and a roof over their head as a minimum, so really it was a no-brainer for landlords to be embracing this new market. Beyond some niche online brands, brick-and-mortar is king, accounting for 81% of total men’s grooming. We are now actually seeing some key online male grooming leaders opening their own destination stores – a complete reverse of the retail trend over the last 10 years. As in everything in our industry, the businesses who are succeeding in the male grooming sector are those that are offering an experience. ‘Masculinity redefined’ is a common phrase on social media and the sophisticated fit-outs are one hell of a big leap from the one your Pop used to visit. Another positive is the new audience that the barbershop resurgence introduces to an area. Males are notoriously difficult to recruit into retail but high-end barbershops are bringing a demographic to a property that would otherwise have remained empty. We don’t see the resurgence as a trend but a great opportunity for long-term investment, particularly in lieu of the forecasted growth of the sector. This new lifestyle brand called ‘barbershop’ has got a bloody bright future. Check out our 2018 coverage of men’s grooming, launching in Headway’s autumn issue.

MINUTES WITH... Julian Maloney, owner of the popular Maloney’s Barber Shop in Auckland, speaks about his experiences, insights and trends in the world of barbering

My career defining moment…was 2015! I made a decision to change the direction I was going in my career and stopped trying to copy other shops and barbers to create my own pathway. I only did this with the support of my wife Susannah (cut-throat Sue), business coach Ben, and getting the right team of barbers to work with. We created a really strong work/family culture, as well as expanding the size of the shop, and I took on an industry role as a Board Member with HITO. That year, I had to step up and back myself and the decisions I made, as well as those of the people around me. It’s really paid off now - I have a great work/life balance.

What sets you apart in the industry? Maloney’s is a big shop! We’re spread over two floors with as many as nine barbers working and a full team of 11. To get to this point in the barber industry you need systems in place to maintain consistency. We really pride ourselves on looking after each client as if they’re a king, whether they’re new or a long-time regular.

Most played songs on your shop playlist? T-Rex - “Hot Love”, Pulp “Common People”, The Smiths - “This Charming Man”, A Tribe Called Quest - “Can I Kick it” and Public Enemy - “He Got Game”.

Your personal motto/philosophy? Be kind, good guys do win. My specialties are…chatting, I love talking! The fact is, I’m an okay barber, but can make a bloke feel really good about themselves and walk out of the shop feeling 10 feet tall by really listening to them and giving them my full attention. That’s all people really want.

How has your clientele changed since you first opened your doors? Wow, it’ll be 15 years next year and our neighbourhood has gone from edgy city fringe to corporate mainstream, which is great for a barbershop, as there are lots of men! But it has got more expensive for people on a budget even to get into (or park in) the CBD where we are based, so there are fewer students and pensioners.

80s ‘mad for it’ Manchester bowl cuts, undercuts or slight disconnection from the sides and top. The slick backs are becoming the brush-forward crop with a blunt fringe; the guys call this style “The UK Banger”.

What would be your advice to those starting out in the barber industry? Have some clear goals and stick to them. For example, being






100% qualified, building your own client list, visit or work in other shops, get a mentor or someone who inspires you. Never stop learning!

What do you see as the future of the barbershop? Barbershops are great places for men to visit - simple, fun and great value - but we will have to embrace the digital age and stay relevant. The use of queuing apps, online bookings and shopping will be a big part of the future, as well as collaborations with relevant businesses - be it coffee, motorbikes or beer.

Which cuts and shapes are you getting the most requests for right now? Another decade and another repeat of style. Yes, back to the late

A Year Of Celebration Vivo Hair & Beauty are poised for a successful year ahead, after a stellar 2017 @VIVOHAIRANDBEAUTY


the competition started. “My heart nearly burst through my chest! The creative atmosphere was palpable.” After competing in the New Talent category for colourists, who have less than five years’ experience, Regina now has a wealth of experience. She and Angela have returned with a fresh outlook, gaining first-hand, insider knowledge, networking opportunities and inspiration that will carry Vivo onto the global stage again in the future. During the artistic learning sessions, the pair saw the Goldwell Master Design Team and Global Artist Ambassador, Jay Mahmood share their vast range of experience. “It felt like I had accumulated years of knowledge in only two days,” says Angela. “These two days will continue to carry me for months to come. I cannot wait to share my knowledge with the wider Vivo team.” Though New Zealand didn’t scoop the major awards this year, the bar has been firmly raised as Vivo stylists are already preparing for more international success.

t’s been a spectacular year for Vivo Hair & Beauty. Winning the Bauer ‘Best in Beauty Best Hair Salon Award’ was no easy feat but the voices of 200,000 people were heard. With that success, Vivo sailed through the year with an addition of nearly 30 salons to their repertoire. Now, with 73 salons across New Zealand, and over 400 leading hair stylists and beauty therapists, Vivo carry over 200 awards across the board, poised for further success in 2018. Vivo celebrated their success in style with an annual awards night, flying all stylists and beauty therapists to one remarkable venue in Auckland, to reward the creme de la crème. The evening defined exceptional and celebrated Vivo’s masterful leaders in the hair and beauty industry.

VIVO ABROAD Another stand-out accomplishment was sending two Vivo Senior Stylists to Barcelona to represent New Zealand in Goldwell Color Zoom’s live global event with 38 countries. It was the biggest Color Zoom competition to date, with close to 3000 attendees, embracing leading artistry, innovation and education. A stunning repertoire of work was created, thanks to the 2017 theme of “Influx” that celebrated fluid shape and texture. Hairstyling under pressure, NZ Vivo finalists Angela Thomson and Regina Wing Yang Tan, relive their unforgettable experience. “There is no better word for it than spectacular – it was out of this world!” says Angela, who competed in the Creative Colour category for those with more than five years’ experience. Regina recalls the intensity of the seconds before



With an influx of new talent and a growing fan base, Vivo’s most recent campaign was aptly called, “Join the Vivo-lution”. Quickly becoming known as a network of people who know good style, the Vivolution now consists of nearly 65,000 returning clients. Taking a spin on classic hair looks, the Vivo-lution campaign is for everyday people rocking fashionable, healthy hair. And with a leading national training programme, Vivo have only the best in hair talent in all Vivo salons. If there’s anyone who can celebrate the hairdressing industry with incandescent style, it’s Vivo. See you in 2018! HEADWAY.NET.NZ 87

2017 New Zealand Salon of the Year


40 Hair | NZ AWARDS

Winning Formula Wellington’s Buoy Salon & Spa come out on top with five awards at the Kitomba NZARH Business Awards 2017


s 2017 marks 30 years since Buoy founder and director Derek Elvy set up his dream salon in Wellington, it’s now also defined by their dominance in business. Buoy was announced as the winner of the Kitomba NZARH New Zealand Salon of the Year, L'Oréal Grand Salon of the Year, Excellence in Marketing, and Best New Entrant. Buoy Colour Director Chinney Yeap added to the list, taking home Business Stylist of the Year. We sat down with owners, Managing Director Phillippa Middleton, and Creative Director Michael Beel, to talk about their phenomenal success at the Business Awards.

How does it feel to have won five Business Awards, including the prestigious Kitomba NZARH New Zealand Salon of the Year award? It's very overwhelming! As it was our first time entering, just being announced as a finalist was amazing. Actually winning is incredibly humbling and we’re extremely proud. As for Chinney winning Business Stylist of the Year, she’s just blown away. Chinney is incredibly committed and is amazing with her team and clients. Over the years we've received untold recognition in this industry for our creativity, however it’s nice to be recognised for our business successes. To be in business for 30 years is a phenomenal feat. But to still be recognised after 30 years as a thriving, healthy and successful business, and a leader in the 90 HEADWAY.NET.NZ


industry from a business perspective, isn’t something that happens often. Winning these awards feels very rewarding. Derek was unfortunately unable to attend due to his health but he is so proud. When we asked him what he thought he said, “Everybody dreams of keeping a brand at a 5-star level and I can see why; it’s very sexy, being at the top is very sexy".

What’s the underlying philosophy of your salon? The philosophy that the salon lives by, printed on our menus and highlighted on our website is: “If there is one thing that stays consistent in our journey, then it’s the idea of creating the sensational. Whether it’s the way you look or the way you feel, we’ve been crafting both for over 30 years. Buoy continues to sit at the leading edge of style; evident by the multitude of accolades, awards and praise we’ve enjoyed”. Consistency is what we strive for in our service delivery, our hair and beauty and the way we run our business. It’s because we strive to always be the best we can possibly be. We also really focus on our culture. You

can have a glamorous fit-out and lovely product, but if the culture’s wrong, the client can feel it. We focus on hiring for the attitude and then we train for skill. Cultivating and training our own talent to produce amazing work, and provide that excellent and consistent experience, helps make us industry leaders. We believe our clients come here because it’s a family, and the consistency and culture resonates with them.

What do you believe your salon offers clients? Consistency is in everything we do. And that’s across our entire team. From the way we open the door, to our greeting and onto the technical quality of a service. It’s all seamless and we do it effortlessly because we need to be on point all the time - you’re only as good as your last service. We also keep creativity, fashion and style top of mind. That’s what Buoy is about. However, we also find clients want things now and sometimes they want the impossible. We have a motto of; “if in doubt, leave it out”. We won’t ever do anything that could jeopardise the client’s hair condition, our brand or our

reputation. So we work hard on managing expectations of what is possible and ensure we have systems in place to work through this type of challenge. A realistic and thorough consultation is key.

What motivates you personally and professionally each day? For me (Michael) being part of this brand for 20 years and believing in what Derek has created is what gets me out of bed in the morning. Also, starting as a stylist and moving on to become a business owner is another huge motivator for me. As owners we’re here to keep this business going, not only for Derek, but for our staff, for their financial freedom and to be able to continuously provide everyone with opportunities, both professionally and personally. Business is what I (Phillippa) know and it’s what I’m good at. There are 28 people who rely on me to run the business side as best I can, so they have a future and an incredible career. Derek, Michael and the team rely heavily on me to make sure our finance, marketing and staff management are all 100%. If I don’t come to work motivated to drive Buoy forward and keep it working, then I’m letting myself and everyone down. Because of Derek and his health, we’ve also had to support him and his journey, and celebrate his 30 years of phenomenal success. This has made us work even harder over the past year so Derek can be really proud of what he created and so he can see it grow into something even more amazing.

change that our industry needs.

What part has salon software played in supporting your salon's success? It’s had a huge impact! If we didn’t have salon software, our salon would be a shambles. We rely on our software like a pub relies on beer. Today, you absolutely need software. We’ve got 28 staff but Kitomba is our 29th team member. Kitomba keeps us on point and consistent, making our business run smoothly and our systems work seamlessly.

What software features would you be unable to live without and why? It’s the reporting, key performance indicators and up-to-date figures that are vital to us. And the point-ofsale houses everything you need all in one screen. Everyday marketing is extremely important to us too. It’s how we ensure each client receives automatic, personalised appointment reminders, reward points updates and how we request client feedback. Our clients have become so reliant on Online Booking, so it’s very important we have that feature.

“Consistency is in everything we do. From the way we open the door, to our greeting and onto the technical quality of a service”

Are there any industry developments that you see having a positive impact on your business? We’d like to make a special mention to the NZARH for supporting the industry and working towards the audacious goal of regulation by 2025. We ensure all our apprentices become fully qualified and are pleased to know that the NZARH are working towards making this positive

How do you feel entering the awards has helped you as a business owner?

It’s a really good exercise to complete. Entering the awards and capturing the data has made us stop and celebrate our success. We knew all the answers and knew we were doing well, but the exercise of putting them together, standing back and looking at our results blew us away. It’s made us realise how important it is to do this. You need to stop and celebrate your successes as they happen.

What would you say to salons considering entering the Business Awards in the future? Do it! You’ve got nothing to lose and if you want to win, then you’d better enter next year. Even if you don’t win, it will allow you to see your business inside and out.

I am still in shock and overwhelmed with the honour of receiving this recognition. It’s such an unreal feeling. Being HITO New Zealand Apprentice of the Year and having the responsibility as their ambassador, and as the first beauty therapist to win this award, is very exciting. This has presented many opportunities, not only for myself, but for our industry.

Why did you choose a career in beauty therapy? Beauty chose me. I was always passionate about makeup and it was makeup that led me to beauty; they work together. Makeup is about enhancing our natural beauty and working with what we have, making clients feel amazing and confident inside and out. I love helping others feel amazing!

What do you love about the industry so far? A huge part of my journey is expanding my knowledge and skills to change lives by helping others on their journey, to share my knowledge with them to meet their beauty needs. I have experienced that this is valuable for being the best therapist I can be. I also love the diversity and availability of new treatments and techniques, including the countless opportunities for post-graduate training that is available within our industry. It allows anyone to choose their path.

Who inspires you within the beauty industry? Locally, my employer and friend Pauline De Thierry from Pamper Me MediSpa in Thames. She has been my motivator. I watch her work ethics and have seen her presence within the industry grow. When you put your mind to it and focus on your education, clients and goals, you are capable of great things. Internationally, the DMK family and network group led by founder Danne Montague King, and head of the South Pacific Division, Daniel and Debbie Dickson. Danne is amazing! Designing and formulating a skin revision range that is just life-changing for so many of my clients at Pamper Me MediSpa and many others across the globe. Debbie and Daniel give so much ongoing training and support in both professional and personal development.

It’s a wrap Rodney Wayne Creative Director, Richard Kavanagh, takes us behind the scenes, and the looks, of their latest campaign shoot amongst the bright lights and cherry blossoms of Tokyo @RICHARDKAVANAGH


hat strikes you most about Tokyo beyond the bright neon, giant Anime cartoons advertising luxury fashion, and uber-cool street style of the locals, is how clean the place is. Shooting in the deepest part of Tokyo’s ghetto area, the red light district of Shinjuku, there’s no litter, no dust or dirt on the streets or buildings, and even the rundown strip joints and hostess bars are kept carefully and lovingly spotless. However, as we discovered, be careful where you set up your crew and start shooting. The yakuza (local mafia) run a tight ship, and if you encroach on their turf in the wrong way, you’ll get moved on quick smart! Rodney Wayne were there this spring to shoot their latest campaign during Sakura, or cherry blossom blooming season, and also had the opportunity to enjoy a sample of what this amazing city has to offer; from luxury eats to street food and everything in between. It’s an early start on our first day to explore potential street locations and scout the best spots for the cherry blossoms. Thankfully, vending machines are on every street corner so sweet hot coffee in a can for a dollar gets us going before a delicious local breakfast of noodles and soup with pickles and salmon. Breakfast was only 400 yen and was served very quickly once we figured out how to order from the screen at the front of the restaurant. We visited Ueno Park near Tokyo central in the hope of shooting there, but the blossoms weren’t quite out and it was a little cold and clinical for our liking. So after purchasing a Suiko card for the very efficient trains, we could tap and get our way around the city in search of more blossoms and beauty. Inokashira Park in the Musashino district was next on our list - a gorgeous park with walkways all around a central pond and the most exciting feature, two-person pedal boats in shape of giant swans! We really wanted to shoot the girls in the swans, however in Japan, rules are rules. And there’s no bending them. The trains run on time, people line up in orderly queues, and everything works like clockwork. Unfortunately, even after lots of flirting and the offer of a very generous tip, our extremely diligent boat ride operators couldn’t let us on the swans before the official opening time and we had other places to be. So it was a no from us for the swans… Back on the train after another hot coffee in a can (the novelty 94 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

of which was starting to wear off and we really needed to find one of Tokyo’s many excellent coffee shops) and back to Shinjuku for the famous Shinjuku Gyoen Park with over 2500 cherry blossom trees and beautiful open lawns of pale, carpet-like Kikuya grass. Though it was only 5 degrees Celsius and raining, the park was absolutely spectacular. At the height of the Sakura, the queues to get in can be frightening. Despite the thousands of people, it only takes a few minutes and 200 yen to get through the gates. This is where we ultimately ended up shooting the amazing daytime campaign images. There’s a subtle nod to the 90s in the campaign looks, with a fresh-washed, air-dried feel that requires a subtle touch from the colourist and precision and vision from the stylist. Inspired by the global trends in fashion which are leaning towards a more paired back aesthetic, gender fluidity and embracing the essence of individuality, each look is tailored to suit the personality of the girl. Clara’s natural curls were cut into a short shag and her transformation was the most dramatic. She had been wearing her long hair straight for eight years and never wore it curly. After cutting it short, I showed her how to diffuse-dry with a moisturising mousse and refine the curls with a small wave wand and she was over the moon. It literally awoke in her a new playfulness and way of seeing. Linde is more feminine and romantic, so her blonde locks were cut blunt below the décolletage for versatility. Styled with an effortless wave and wispy romantic texture, the icy blonde highlights her Nordic looks. Anna is strong and a little androgynous, so we wanted to give her a fierce, sharp, angular bob that could be softened by flipping it to the side. The soft copper is anchored at the roots with a deeper tone and dimension is added with subtly placed, hand-painted rose gold highlights. The ideal look for the power woman who wants to soften her look or be that fierce power woman when it suits her. Like children, you’re not supposed to have favourites, but every parent knows they secretly prefer one. My personal favourite is Clara because she had the biggest transformation and it had such a huge impact on her and her family. She FaceTimed her grandfather in Europe from Tokyo and he was absolutely thrilled, because he’d been telling her for years to be herself and rock her curls. For me, it really shows just how powerful it can be to change your hair and take a punt on a new look.

Aman Spa at Amangiri Take an otherworldly journey as Sharleen Singh discovers surreal serenity in Utah, USA


verlooking starkly beautiful desert scenery and the Southwest’s iconic flat-topped mesa rock formations, Amangiri (‘peaceful mountain’) can only be accessed by private airplane or a five hour car journey from Las Vegas. Five national parks, numerous national monuments and the Navajo Nation Reservation, the largest Native American reservation in the United States, surround the resort.

SIMPLISTIC LUXURY The brainchild of Adrian Zecha, founder of the Aman group, the resort features 34 suites situated in two elegant wings, which sweep from each side of the resort’s main pavilion. All suites offer private terraces, fireplaces, kingsize beds and private courtyard entrances. The four-bedroom Mesa Home provides total privacy, hidden from the resort behind a rock escarpment. The striking desert landscape around Amangiri offers a host of outdoor activities, including guided walks organised by the resort.

Their unique 135 minute Desert Dream treatment harnesses floatation therapy. Floating untouched for 30 minutes in darkness, your therapist then leads you to a massage room for a deeply relaxing aromatherapy massage. Another signature experience, the Hozho Tandem Massage, requires two therapists working in unison to induce a deep state of relaxation. At the end of a long day of treatments, as night falls on Amangiri, take in the view of the desert rocks slowly disappearing, and the untouched sky twinkling. It truly is a desert dream.

“The Spa aims to reflect the healing traditions of the Navajo through the elements of earth, wind, fire and water.”

Amangiri has created massages, facials and body treatments to enhance awareness of the body, reconnect with the environment and provide insight into the healing ways of the local Native Americans. In keeping with this theme, all spa experiences begin with the Native American ritual of smudging; the process of burning white sage and fanning the smoke over one’s body. It’s the act of

Two iconic NZ beach hotspots host two iconic, award-winning salons. We discover just what makes them so special

What are your three go-to products at the moment? If I had to choose three, I would say Joyce Blok’s amazing Super Serum, Vitamin Cream Mask and Lip Balm.

What’s the best beauty advice you were ever given? I’ve received a lot of great advice throughout my life, but the best would be that beauty comes from within.

What is your ethos for self care? To surround myself with

BECKIE THURSTON SOUL BEAUTY ROOMS, WAIHI BEACH Joyce Blok Salon of the Year Interviewed by Kelly Kingston What are your favourite Joyce Blok products for summer? My absolute must-haves for summer are Everyday Sun Fitness SPF15+, Super Serum, Eye Contour Gel and Face & Body Exfoliant for sure.

What is some skincare advice you have been given that you swear by? You can never over-moisturise! Make sure you exfoliate at least once or twice a week, use sunscreen and an eye cream every day without fail, and drink plenty of water.

You are immersed daily in an industry that empowers and makes people feel good. Do you have any relevant words of wisdom or quotes you live by? I love quotes and am in the process of writing a book. My favourite quote is ‘let the beauty of what you love be what you do’, and ‘be kind – anger puts lines on your face that Botox will never remove’.

What is the skin concern you treat most in your clinic? We treat all kinds of skin conditions, but the most common we see would have to be dry, dehydrated skin, and sun damaged/pigmented skin.


people I enjoy and admire. To go for walks along the beach, enjoy meals with family and our dog, wine with friends – and find lots of balance! I also try to show compassion and forgiveness, and try to be able to apologise and acknowledge the positive.

What’s one beauty product you have always used? That’s a hard one! It would have to be a tie between lip balm and mascara.

What is your top summer skin tip, both internal and topical? For internal I just suggest having plenty of fruit, water, vitamin C and iron. Topical would be to use sunscreen, fake tan, sunscreen, moisturise, and of course - sunscreen!

What do you love most about the beauty industry? My love and passion for the industry started as a young girl and grew over time. What I love most would have to be the people – my amazing staff, clients, reps and suppliers.

KELLY KINGSTON MOUNT SKIN AND BODY, MOUNT MANGANUI Decléor Salon of the Year Interviewed by Beckie Thurston How have you kept your passion for this industry alive? I feel very privileged to contribute to the lives of the

Sometimes I work 50 hours a week and sometimes I drink wine with friends on a Monday. I did buy an electric bike recently so that I could have fresh air, sunshine, time to self, exercise and do my bit for the planet all in one.

What would be the key tips for your success? It’s the people I’ve met, books I’ve read and speakers I’ve heard. I also have a very supportive family and network of friends who give me courage and confidence. Do you have a favourite Decléor product/treatment and why? Decléor is such an important part of my business. The ‘skin, body, mind’ philosophy is absolutely what we do. Results don’t just come from what you’re putting on the skin, but from the way you look after yourself; deep breathing, time out, quiet. We’re all now starting to prioritise this in our lives, but the French and Decléor have always known it.


How do you maintain balance between your home/ work/family lifestyle as well as your staff and clients?



an emphasis on education and culture. Ask about it in your interview. The opportunities in the beauty industry are endless if you are well-educated, trained and guided.



What would be your advice for someone beginning their beauty training/career? Find a salon that has


women that I lead in my business and perhaps our clients through the conversations that we have, be it skin, wellbeing or motherhood.

Which influencers motivate or inspire you? My consultant Jason from Thrive Coaching. My business has grown so much through having someone from the outside looking in. My industry influencers are Dr Libby and Ben Warren. I have learned so much about wellbeing and lifestyle which all contributes to skin health.

What key differences have made your salon stand out from other salons? I am very focused on keeping our team happy and team culture solid and I never have any issues with attracting amazing staff, so I think a lot of our success has been in that.

What do you think are the most important aspects of being an excellent therapist? My career changed when I got really interested in people and directed conversation away from the weather and onto issues of skin, wellness and lifestyle. It’s a topic I love, and my clients now love and I hope I can contribute to their lives positively.

What does the future hold for Mount Skin and Body? This month Mount Skin and Body turns 15! I anticipate a lot of exciting things in the next five years.

“Comfortel was our supplier of choice for the Touch Room Pedicure space. We chose Comfortel due to the style, features and custom look of the furniture available. They were very supportive and assisted us through the process of arranging custom colour bases to ensure the chairs were a good fit to our décor and overall ambiance of the spa. We were really impressed by the new design and comfort of the chairs” - Victoria Stewart

“Our pedicure room is an escape from the outside world - plush, luxurious, warm and cosy” Victoria says. “The pedicure chairs are stylish and modern. We enjoy the ambiance created by customising the lighting of the chair pedicure bowls to enhance the space. We are proud to offer a luxurious, clean and unique experience to all our guests.” Comfortel worked closely with Victoria and customised their Clean Spa Pedi’s to work with the spa’s design interior. Black bases were created for the superior Elegance Pedicure

Spa, which boasts a Wellness Chromotherapy LED bowl, digital controls and rejuvenating massage. “Cleanliness and hygiene are of the utmost importance to us and the new pedicure spas fit the brief. The magnetic jets that swirl the water in the bowl give our clients a terrific experience but are also easy to clean from the therapist’s point of view. There is no internal filtering of the water, which ensures that we are able to sanitise the bowls and jets easily and quickly in between clients.”

A-Z of SUMMER BEAUTY We share our A-Z of beauty must-haves including products, ingredients, treatments, beauty masters and more...




Shine from the inside out with plenty of vitaminenriched fruit and veges, as well as supplements to truly make a difference to skin health. We use vitamin C serum for spots and pigmentation and vitamin E serum for after-sun care. Enjoy 10 minutes of sun exposure (don’t over-do it!) to receive your daily vitamin D intake.




AHA Invigorating Face & Body Scrub truly is magnificent. Designed to gently exfoliate, this fan-fave leaves skin baby-soft, soothed and radiant.


Floatation creates a total feeling of weightlessness as stresses drift away, whilst skin soaks in the moisturising effects of Epsom salts. Believe the hype, this treatment has also been known to improve sleeping patterns, spark creativity and reduce anxiety. Total bliss.


Whether we call it war paint, guy liner or manscara, our prediction for 2018 is look out for male makeup. For many, the choice is more functional than decorative and it’s definitely going mainstream.

Check out Gary Thompson’s video for L’Oreal True Match Foundation – it’s beautifully done and well worth the watch. MMUK is the most commonly referenced brand in digital media and Charlotte Tilbury is rumoured to be on board. We’ll keep you posted!

IS FOR GOLD Adding a touch of luxury to skin care, gold as an ingredient has become a frequent feature in many high-end beauty ranges. This gleaming new addition is said to reduce inflammation and brighten the skin – that’s a gold star from us.


IS FOR HIGHLIGHT MAC’s beloved Strobe Cream boosts the look of dull, tired-looking skin, adding a glimmer of iridescent particles – it’s about the highlight after-all.





An easy way to give skin a daily boost, start every day with a fresh fruit or vegetable juice. Berries are packed with antioxidants, while citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C which slows down the skin’s ageing process. We are massive fans.




Celebrating their 45th birthday next year, and a wellestablished Kiwiowned and operated institution, Joyce Blok Professional Skin Care truly are an iconic brand in their own right. With long-standing stockists and loyal clients, we’re excited to see the next step for this innovative range.


glo-minerals Luxe Liquid Foundation instantly revitalises the complexion and is perfect for a bridal glow. The formulation harnesses light-diffusing diamond powder to erase imperfections and provide a soft, airbrushed effect to the skin.


Kester Black designs and produces ethical sustainable cosmetics and skincare. Anna Ross, or Kiwi cosmetic queen as she was recently hailed in the media, has a remarkable story and an amazing product. We cannot get enough of her nail colours. Check out the Instagram – super-cool shots. Kester Black are, in Anna’s own words, moving “out of the cosmetic space and into a design and fashion context”.

IS FOR MICELLAR Sothys Micellar Cleansing Water works to remove makeup and impurities; a 2-in-1 must-have that we’re glad to see in our cosmetic bags over summer.

IS FOR PRE-CLEANSE Skin accumulates quite a lot of dirt, pollution and makeup build-up on a daily basis. Despite this, the amount of time taken to cleanse only averages around 20 seconds. Dermalogica’s PreCleanse Balm is step zero, taking skin back to no residue and prepped for cleansing.


OR Facial oils are a great way of achieving smoother, softer skin. Even those with oily complexions can benefit. The skin’s over-production of oil is a sign it’s lacking in oils to keep it hydrated. Adding a facial oil into the mix, such as Decléor’s Aromessence Oil Serums, can actually slow sebum production and lead to a more balanced complexion.


Our number one rule? Never neglect your skin. Whether it is going to bed with makeup on (a big no-no), or not applying sunscreen every day (an even bigger no-no), we’re ensuring we’re taking time and care with our skin, to embrace barefaced, natural beauty.



Free radicals are a skin care nemesis. They contain one or more unpaired electrons, latching on to other molecules in the body, which can lead to skin damage. Created by inflammation and sun damage, these nasties can damage collagen in skin's elastin. Have no fear - many skin care products provide a barrier against free radicals – phew.


This pretty mineral, commonly regarded as the ‘master stone’, can be found everywhere. From designer jewellery, to featuring in skin care bottles, this rosy stone is as beautiful as it is beneficial. Known to help with stress and detoxification, keep an eye out for this do-it-all gemstone across new brands in 2018.


Everyone wants an extra glow around this time of year. Enter St. Tropez Instant Tan Finishing Gloss, the latest quick fix tan with a luxe, highshine finish. Quick and easy to use, this even tanner is a gleaming, golden winner.

Ground-breaking and clinically proven, Elizabeth Arden PRO’s Triple Protection Protector helps shield skin from environmental exposure and signs of premature ageing. It also features a universal tint for all skin tones. A true must-have.



UVA and UVB radiation are the ultraviolet rays that reach from the sun to the earth's surface – and they can be bad news for skin. Over-exposure can lead to photo damage and sunburn which can, in time, lead to skin cancer. Protect skin with SPF’s when subjected to long exposures. Try Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF30 Dry Sunscreen or one of Fleur De Mer’s SPF50 Tinted Foundation Creams.


Wellness is key, as beauty really does start from the inside. Making sure you are rested, getting the right nutrients, are hydrated and energised are easier said than done. Getting a little extra help in terms of meditation, candles, and teas can give you the boost you may not be getting. Rest well, beautiful.


Specifically formulated for ageing skin, Decléor Aroma Cleanse Youth Cleansing Milk, with a subtle floral fragrance, leaves skin feeling soft, supple and moisturised to keep you looking younger for longer.

MAN-TENANCE Dr Catherine Stone explores trends and advancements in the ever-growing male cosmetic market


en are a fast-growing market for non-surgical cosmetic medicine, as it becomes more socially acceptable – and in some circumstances expected – for them to have a ‘few small tweaks’ to keep them looking less tired and stressed. These days, more men are turning to cosmetic medicine to boost their confidence - both in the boardroom, and in the bedroom. Many male cosmetic clients are in executive roles where they are competing with younger men and women, and comment that they need to remain looking ‘relevant’ in their work. Some will choose to look less grumpy by treating their frown and/or sad mouth with Botox, while others want to look ‘less tired’ by filling out the hollows under their eyes with fillers. Reducing underarm and/or hand sweating with Botox is also popular for the professional male, especially if they do a lot of presenting, sales or work with people. Research has shown that men with a stronger chin are perceived as ‘better leaders’, so chin and jaw enhancements with fillers have been growing in popularity. For many males, having treatments for acne scarring, or permanent reduction of excess hair on the chest, neck and back, can be a significant confidence boost – important in both work and in personal relationships. Cosmetic medical technology is also being utilised to improve men’s intimate lives, with the use of platelet-rich plasma – using the healing parts of your own blood – to improve erections, size and sensitivity in a quick and simple technique called the Priapus Shot. Men are anatomically and behaviourally different to women, so it is important that any clinician assisting men is conscious of these differences and can adjust their techniques and recommendations to suit. There is nothing worse than feminising a man who wants to look stronger, more youthful and more confident in the boardroom by arching his brows and giving him full lips and cheeks like a woman! One of the other common mistakes is over-treating men to give them completely smooth, shiny, wrinkle-free skin and an expressionless face. It’s nice for men to still have a few lines and a little bit of ‘ruggedness’ to them, so it’s great to be able to soften the perceived ‘negative’ signs of ageing that can make them look tired, stressed or grumpy, while still holding onto the features

that give them their unique, strong, masculine look. Males naturally have thicker skin, produce more sebum (the thick oily secretions that protect our skin, but can also cause acne when it blocks the pores), and sweat more than women. The androgen hormones, such as testosterone, make male hair thicker, coarser and darker, especially on the face, neck, chest, arms and legs – and often the back. Permanently reducing the hair on the chest and back is very popular in men, and IPL hair reduction can also reduce hair on the neck, making shaving easier, and reducing the incidence of painful and unsightly shaver’s rash – medically called ‘folliculitis’. Thicker skin, larger facial muscles, and less supporting fatty tissue under the skin often result in men developing deeper facial lines than women do. Men have traditionally been more likely to work or play outdoors, so have more sun exposure, and are less likely to use sunscreens and apply treatment serums than women. Women also often have a natural sun barrier when they wear makeup, especially if they wear mineral makeup. As men become more aware of the health benefits – as well as the cosmetic benefits - of looking after their skin, they will often start stealing their wife’s skin products. This is not only potentially bad for your health by making your wife mad at you for stealing her favourite products, it also means you are probably not getting the best results for your skin type. If they are treatment-based serums, you may also be making your skin worse, as treatment serums are often prescribed for specific concerns just like medications are. If your skin is not the same as your wife’s, and your concerns are not the same, it’s highly likely you are going to be using the wrong products for your skin. It is worth investing time in a skin consultation to determine your specific skin needs, and having your skin products and treatments tailored to your concerns. While it can be confronting to take the first step of seeing a skin therapist, many clinicians these days understand how different men’s needs are and can offer excellent personalised advice. After taking the first step to find a clinician they connect with, most men enjoy the time spent having some peace and quiet away from their busy day, while receiving a treatment that benefits them at the same time.

BLADE RUNNER Arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are the most important facial feature according to Maria Bain, brow beauty master. She shares her discovery of microblading and how it has shaped her business @BELLEZABYMARIABAIN

My career defining moment is…When I decided to reinvent myself with the return to my career while juggling family life and two small children. I’ve always worked part time through my children’s early years, but in the last two years I have specialised and focused on looking after and transforming my client’s lashes and brows, as well as looking after their skin.




@ T

What sets you apart in the industry? I treat my clients like the unique individuals that they are, and believe a thorough consultation and chat about every single detail is essential to achieving results and managing expectations. A semi-permanent tattoo is an important decision to make and one I take very seriously with my clients.


Your personal philosophy? To always be professional but friendly. To treat everyone like they are a family member. How has your clientele changed since you first opened your doors? My client base grew slowly over the years but rarely went backwards. Microblading has introduced me to a larger number of clients than ever before, which is super-motivating and rewarding. I get a variety of ladies visiting me and I love 122 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

meeting and helping everyone. Why did you introduce microblading to Belleza? I’ve always been obsessed with the perfect eyebrows. When I first heard about microblading three years ago from a friend, I was fascinated by the concept. Once she started operating I had my own brows done and instantly fell in love with the result. I then invested in my training and studied in Melbourne, which was a great start, but I soon learned there was a lot more I wanted to know. I became hooked on researching the service and following popular artists around the world. I quickly saw that it was becoming a very #ontrend procedure. I also wanted to give the same feeling that my brows gave me to others. What would be your advice to those considering introducing microblading? Research who you train with. I trained at the Melbourne College of Cosmetic Tattoo and it was a fantastic foundation for this extension of my career. You will do hours and hours of drawing and researching and analysing artists work so you can grow. Tina Davies is an amazing artist and has over 20 years in the cosmetic field. She guides new artists on social media and I have learnt a huge amount from her. What do you see in the future for your salon? With 20 years in the industry, owning my own boutique business for the last eight years has been an amazing experience. I pride myself on client retention. When a client has an experience with me they return, and do so for years. My next goal is to contract myself out to elite salons and offer my microblading expertise to an even larger audience. I will continue to expand my skills and attend advanced training courses and ultimately, I will own a lash and brow studio with an expert team.

NATURAL EXTENSIONS With the freedom of changing our hair length with ease, it was inevitable to see lash extensions becoming a much soughtafter way to make lashes truly stand out. These can range from synthetic, silk, mink and everything in between, resulting in flexible and long-lasting lash treatments. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. Applying a full set of lashes can take about two hours and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. For those that don’t want to go full Kardashian just yet, a half set of lashes are an alternative to achieve a similarly dramatic effect, applied as filler to thicken natural lashes, or applied outward from the eye for a specialised look. An easily customisable way to add some lushness to your clients lashes.

PERM PERFECTION It’s a much-loved optical illusion that upturned lashes look longer than straight ones. Enter eyelash perming; “a great way to give your clients lashes a wonderful curl, letting the eyes appear larger and more expressive,” explains Lauren De Vries, Trainer at Self Care Group. “RefectoCil Eyelash Perm gently curls the eyelashes, lasting up to 6 weeks”, says DeVries.

While a perm curls the lashes with a cylindrical rod, for a little extra oomph to natural lashes, a lash lift treatment may be just what your beauty menu needs. “Yumi Lash Lift is a keratin lash lifting system that increases the appearance of length and curl using the client’s natural lashes”, says Rebecca Hutchinson, Trainer for Yumi Lashes NZ. “The active solutions contain keratins, proteins and serums resulting in a longer lasting glossy lash treatment”. Seen as the most natural way to enhance what you already have, Hutchinson explains that they use silicone pads to contour the natural lashes up into the desired shape. “We then apply a series of nourishing treatments to set the lashes in place, which is then finished with an ultra-dark tint”. You can get this booster treatment every 6 to 10 weeks depending on the growth cycle of your new and improved lashes.

You may have clients who are over the inevitability of plucking dried glue from lashes at the end of a glamorous event (particularly after the party season) so you’ll be happy to discover this magnetic alternative for them. “Magnetic Eyelash Extensions are a glue-less substitute to traditional stick-on false lashes that use magnetic technology to lock in place above and below your natural top lash line”, explains Katie Turner, founder of Magnetic Eyelashes NZ. “As with applying any false eyelashes, it takes a bit of practice the first time to get the hang of it, but once you have it mastered you’ll be hooked, and application usually only takes 30 seconds per eye!” says Turner. These handy extensions require a natural lash line to give the magnets something to lock into, so aren’t recommended for people who have very minimal or no natural eyelashes. When cared for properly, you can expect anywhere from 20-30 uses out of a single pair – that’s definitely a win.








treatment. “For super-sensitive skin, it’s best to do a spot test beforehand, with repeat appointments able to be made at least every three months depending on the lashes, and tinting done every four weeks for a vibrant dash of colour”. The application itself takes about an hour, and with the choice of four different roller sizes, you can achieve the perfect lash curvature for your customer.

DREAM SUMMER BODY Sharleen Singh looks at the best routines, habits and products to help keep your clients tanned, healthy and glowing this season

SPA UPDATE If you haven’t already, it’s time to get your clients booked in for their summer treatments, including maintenance appointments. Whether it be waxing, mani’s and pedi’s, or eye enhancements, encourage your clients to pre-book these appointments months in advance to ensure they don’t miss out over summer. Speaking of waxing, talk to your clients about the benefits of a body polish treatment to ensure that their skin is prepped and primed for body products, and to ensure they don’t get those niggly ingrown hairs, and maintain an even tan. A gorgeous faux glow is a quick fix to disguising cellulite, stretch marks, veins and discolouration and is a cost-effective solution for clients if big-ticket treatments aren’t in their budget. Whether it be homecare products or in-spa tans, make sure you’re on top of this sun-safe option.

DIET EDIT Don’t run for the hills just yet, we’re not going to mention fad diets – what would the holiday period be without summer feasts? Instead, suggest to your clients that they could take advantage of the beautiful produce on offer around this time of year. Melons, for

example, are the perfect hot-weather food. They hydrate without bloating and fill you up without putting you in a food coma – not to mention refreshing! Meanwhile in-salon, why not make your beverage list seasonal? Summer could see the introduction of cooling and detoxifying drinks, such as lemon and strawberryinfused water, a vitamin-packed smoothie or your supplement of choice with coconut water.

THE WORKOUT It’s easy to panic when someone mentions exercise, but there are simple ways to add a bit of movement to your clients daily routines. You could team up with your local gym or yoga studio and offer a special discount on a treatment and yoga combo. For those that aren’t ready to master the gym bunny or yogi life just yet, there are plenty of apps and devices out there to help keep track of your fitness goals. Our favourite suggestion? Take a short walk or drive and embark on a summer hike to a multitude of hot (and shaded) spots. Explore the endless locations our beautiful country has to offer, all in the name of scenic working out – a bit of a win-win.

Bring back a little sole to your 2018 menu Having been given a lot of bad press over the years, Anne O’Brien, self-confessed pedicure lover, encourages businesses to give back a little R.E.S.P.E.C.T to this traditional treatment


any of my team may be surprised to know that I actually looked at podiatry as a career at school. Thinking about it, I guess it went hand-in-hand with my obsession with beautiful shoes. It was a little more realistic than my goal to become one of Charlie’s Angels and believe it or not, as a young teenager I was fascinated with the healing benefits of foot massage. The term and general understanding of reflexology was not as mainstream as it is now and certainly pedicures were definitely not as popular, but the fact that the feet have all those pressure points with a direct link to our organs fascinated me. Needless to say I did not become a podiatrist but a firm yet relaxing foot massage is still one of my most favourite ways to destress. As we approach a glorious summer season, pedicures move from being few and far between as spa or salon treatments to becoming a regular (as they should be) part of your clients self-care programme. Much has been made of the issues with hygiene and infections that have been spotlighted 128 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

in the media due to negligible cleaning systems in Pedi-spas and pedicure stations. Instagram influencers globally have been quick to post horror stories and broadcast feedback regarding low pedi standards. This has meant that pedicures may not be as popular in your business as they once were, but a treatment that has been part of our medical history for more than 4,000 years deserves more respect and be revisited as part of your menu for 2018. The term pedicure is derived from the Latin words pedis meaning foot, and cura meaning care. Even a simple foot soak as a pre-treatment (before a massage or facial) will have almost immediate benefits for your client, as they rest their feet in a warm bowl of relaxing salts. This mini water treatment may be the only time your client is able to immerse a part of their body in therapeutic waters all month so make the experience as relaxing as you possibly can. I am also going to put it out there that after a long hot day in closed shoes, bathing your clients feet will be beneficial to your own enjoyment of the treatment as you wash

away some of the days accumulated aromas. By introducing this pre-soak, you can plant the seed for just how beneficial pedicures can be to health and wellbeing in addition to having the extra benefit of adding a new dimension of bling to a bare but gently exfoliated foot. Nail paint was originally introduced as a means of indicating social position. Red in ancient Egypt was the colour of high social status and was worn by Cleopatra. The amazing collection of colours, jewels, decals and finishes now mean that a beautiful pedicure can enhance an otherwise very dull pair of shoes. Of course, the male pedicure is just as pleasing as hard, dead skin and cracked soles are as unhealthy and bad for either gender to endure. The benefits far outweigh the bad rap the treatment has been getting that’s for sure, as pedicures actually prevent nail diseases and disorders, as well as improve posture due to smoothed and relaxed feet. I am continuously looking for information and inspiration, so to see how speciality pedicures have been tracking internationally has been fascinating. Margaret Dabbs is leading the way in terms of luxury treatments and locations it seems. Her latest expansion is into Doha, Qatar and looks spectacular. Once crowned the queen of pedicures (her Ultimate Pro Pedicure was listed at $1,200 USD per foot), Dabbs has not fallen into the trap of downsizing her speciality. Other opportunities include offering cocktails with your pedi’s (Sip Sip Hooray), delivering a totally non-toxic environment and ensuring only natural or sometimes totally certified organic products are used (very NY) or adding as extensive a pedi list as your facial list, which will cover the needs of every client. Options include party nails, the chocolate pedicure, La Stone pedicure, Medi-Pedi, Sports Pedi and really as many as you like to pique your clients’ interest and to keep your staff engaged. Do some research yourself and remember just how healing this treatment can be when performed professionally. Tip your toes into something new for 2018 (sorry couldn’t resist) and seriously think about bringing back the pedicure. I’m a big fan already… HEADWAY.NET.NZ 2

e all know the story. We come back from our Christmas holidays and post-holiday blues seep in. Our team starts the year looking rested and tanned but there is no spring in their step. How do we motivate them when the sun is shining and all anyone wants to do is enjoy it? The key is in celebrating the small and large achievements. Planning, executing, following up and really recognising when staff do well is important for a productive and successful 2018.

INDIVIDUAL GOALS So many times when I am out in the industry, I hear owners telling me that they want their staff to retail more or that their services aren’t as good as they should be. Owners need to take responsibility for this by adopting a simple change in behaviour for 2018 - inspect what you expect and reward when targets are met. Have you given your staff member a target for the year, season, month, week or day? I’m not just talking about dividing it up 130 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

by the number of days she/he is employed but really supplying a true road map of your budget that shows a daily breakdown. We all know that not every day has the same turnover, so don’t expect your staff to achieve the impossible. Analyse your previous year’s results and know what percentage of business is attributed to each day, to make your budgets accurate.

“Analyse your previous year’s results and know what percentage of business is attributed to each day, to make your budgets accurate. It shows your staff that you understand your bottom line and what is achievable.” It shows your staff that you understand your bottom line and what is achievable. So you have explained the logic behind your budget and that’s great, but how

are we going to achieve this? Does your staff know how many treatments and what retail will be needed to hit budget? Have you got promotions in place to accommodate slower periods for the year or the introduction of new staff? Sit down with your team and your product distributor and look at all the possible promotions you can put in place for the next year. Ask each team member to come up with one promotional idea. You will be surprised at what they come up with and how they see things from a different angle. With promotions it’s important that there is a plan to run them smoothly, so everyone must have a part to play in the execution. These budgets need to be recorded and monitored weekly. If your staff member is falling behind, find out how you can work together to achieve your goal. Is it lack of clients, training, or lack of motivation? It is easier to work on something that is a month behind than a year behind, but your staff need to know that you are on top of things and not leaving it to chance. Once you have your budgets and promotional planning in place, share this

TEAM GOALS Now you have individual incentives and performance goals in place, how many of us really find out from our staff what motivates them as a team? To assist in your success, add team motivation to your list as well. This will enable you to encourage staff to support each other and be engaged in the business goals, as well as their personal goals. A dinner out, a visit to another spa for a treatment, or an early breakfast together can be something the business works towards and can be a fun culture-building exercise as well. The most important thing is to have measurable achievements in place and then to celebrate every achievement, whether it be small or large. Your business relies on you to lead and good leaders recognise good staff.

FUTURE-PROOF Margaret Walsh of Observ advises us to open our minds and look to future-proofing our business for 2018 by expanding treatments and utilising digital media


he first few months of the year are a very important time for your business. This is the time we should all make New Year resolutions and determine what is essential for us to focus on for the next 12 months. Sometimes though, when the great December event and trading madness is over, we close our exhausted minds and forget about what we have done. After Christmas, we repack our boxes of ornaments and the in-salon Christmas decorations are taken down. The Christmas themes on our Facebook and Instagram accounts disappear, and we go back to doing things the way we’ve always done them. Here’s the deal though. You will need to change, renew and rejuvenate your thoughts in order to future-proof your business this year. It’s called having a positive and a ‘getting down to business now’ approach. Let’s get to work and find new ways, 132 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

travel new service roads, and bring bright new energy and volition into play. Let’s find fabulous solutions, repair what’s broken and look forward to the future with new eyes!

BACK TO BASICS WITH MIXED MODALITIES The continued focus on global health, recycling, eating well, self-care and a nostalgia for past times, where life was considered slower, gives you an opportunity to offer treatments that reflect this way of thinking. We should blend resultsdriven treatments with well-being and relaxation for 2018. Here are some tips on what to add to your menu this year… 1. Promote yearly programmes – this is a must for each New Year and it is important to teach your staff to promote these programmes. Educate team members on upselling and

combining a result-driven session in salon for their clientele and have these noted on your menus. For example, enjoy an LED 30-minute facial treatment whilst they have a pedicure or manicure or after a skin treatment, back massage or full leg wax to regather their soul before dashing back to a demanding life style. 2. If you have a hairdressing salon in-house or next door, book your clients in to have a shampoo, scalp massage and blow wave after their full body massage. This enables them to look as fabulous as they feel leaving your salon. 3. Refresh your menu by adding aromatherapy oils in foot soaks combined with foot reflexology. 4. During full body and back massages, teach clientele to inhale a gentle uplifting oil, such as sweet orange. Encourage deep breathing exercises whilst you dry brush the body with a cactus brush, triggering improved lymphatic circulation, nerve ending stimulation, desquamating loose corneocyte skin cells, relaxing the senses and healing a busy mind. 5. Have take-home bath and body retail packs available and a plan to walk 10,000 steps to health every day. Reinforce these healthy habits with every client. We are trained to care for the person as a whole – not just an upper lip for electrolysis or laser treatment. 6. Don’t forget décolleté and hand treatments. Infuse these zones with super serums and antioxidant-based masks and massage the tension away. 7. Offer brow and lash enhancements - permanent and semipermanent - utilising serums and new pigmentary skill services. Teach in-salon that those two eyebrows will never be exactly the same in arch and thickness. I have heard it said that ‘eyebrows are sisters, not identical twins!’ Blend in these new modalities with your menu as additional ‘me time’ treatments for clients to enjoy.

VIDEO TAKES CONTROL IN 2018 Undoubtedly, video is the medium most used by brands in their advertising campaigns. It is an entertaining and easy-to-use form of marketing and it helps 90% of the client’s purchase decision. According to predictions, in 2018 about 84% of internet traffic will be generated by online video. For this reason, I believe that the visual trends in video will have to be embraced in your marketing plan to future-proof your business. Being able to share your in-salon results and treatments, VIP events and educational seminar evenings instantly using platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook will be influential in your success. Regular before and after videos and panoramic videos, (aerial 4k with drones even!) will be a crucial step for you and your salon to embrace, if you haven’t already. It is today which will form tomorrow, and tomorrow which will form your future! I would very much like to wish you all a positive, focused, and future-proofed New Year where the opportunities for each one of us are sparkling and infinite, like the grains of white sand on the finest New Zealand beach. Do contact me should you require assistance in salon. or

Lyndall Mitchell & Shannah Kennedy, founders of The Essentialists and leaders in life and wellness education, share their take on the goal-setting process


oals help to clarify your tasks to lead you to what you want to achieve in the world, and they provide a framework for smart choices and decision making. They simplify your intentions, they strip away the worry and relieve you of the torment of choice. Very few people have specific and measurable goals, and even fewer have written these goals down. An even smaller amount have also thought of a specific plan to make these goals a reality. This is a skill that will deliver you incredible daily rewards when practised. People who don’t write down their goals tend to fail easier than the ones who have clear plans. Clearly defined goals also bring a great sense of awareness and alert you to new opportunities that will cross your path as you live in alignment with your values and visions. They will guide you to stay on task towards your vision and stay committed as you are motivated for the end result. Great goals can engage and energise you and they will keep you on track


with your mission, rather than living life responding to others, our moods and the parts of life we cannot control. Having simple, clear goals will help you measure progress, which will in turn boost your motivation levels. Your confidence and level of self-esteem will also fire up as you achieve the goals you set for yourself. They are the wonderful wins along the way that compound your success and boost your self-belief, which makes you grow and evolve out of your comfort zone easily and effortlessly. Your goals do not have to be big, bold, lifechanging feats. They can be as small as committing to taking three breaths before you get out of bed every single morning and setting up your mindset for the day. Often the small daily goals that we set and act on have the most powerful impact of all and offer the greatest rewards as they become habits. We can also set the big juicy goals of starting a business, committing to a relationship or running a marathon, which are then broken down into bite-size pieces with timelines.

“You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream” - C.S. Lewis


TOP TIPS WHEN SETTING GOALS: • Set goals with intention

Really own them, want them and build a great desire to achieve them. e.g. Non-negotiable to go to the gym at 6am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with full commitment. The simplicity of it means no thinking is required, just tick it off your list on those days as it is in the diary for the year.

• Write down your goals Don’t think it, ink it. Make sure you can see them every single day, they are your road map to the vision you have created for your life. A study of Harvard business graduates during a 10 year period around goal setting found that the 3% who had written goals were earning on average 10 times as much as the other 97% of the class combined.

• Make sure they are specific goals For example ‘I want to lose weight’, or ‘I want to lose five kilos in five months’. The clarity here makes it easy to write your plan around the goal and will start you into the mode of action!

• Give yourself a deadline Ensure your timeline is achievable, challenging and marked out in your diary. Simple, effective planning of when you will do something equals incredible results.

• Bite-size chunks Under each goal, write down the three dot points that will back it up. For example: to lose five kilos in five months, I will go to the gym at 6am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I will stop drinking sugarladen soft drinks.

• Evaluate daily What is not measured will never be mastered or finished. It is not effective to just review your goals each quarter. The key is to reflect on them daily, even for just 3-5 minutes.

• Reward your success

STONE AGE Nature’s gems are being fine-tuned with some genuine results…


majority of people raise their eyebrows when any talk of the power of precious stones or crystals is introduced to a conversation. However, what was once considered too New Age for most spas has gained respect and a steady following in 2017. The potential impact of the movement is being compared to that of aromatherapy some 20 years ago. Rose Quartz was the main catalyst for mainstream interest, as it moved from a Pantone Colour of the Year (2016) to a popular wedding favour for the current wedding season. It has also been suggested that with all the unsettled political and economic climates across the globe, people are looking for balance and spirituality to give some perspective to the chaos – similar to the mood of the ‘70s. Crystals have offered a temporary escape and are thought to help cancel out negative energy. Whether the stones are your thing or not, there has been a definite increase in formulators incorporating crystals into skincare, and jade and rose quartz rollers are selling in droves for consumer use at home. Tumbled stones or wands are being used in massage and acupressure treatments, plus serums infused with elements. Energy-enhancing ruby or soothing moonstone are being introduced to treat sensitised skin. The associated benefits of crystals goes back nearly 4,000 years with Eastern medicine attributing different energies, frequencies and balances to precious stone. Each crystal is believed to have a slightly different geometric pattern; the same patterns that reside in our own organs. We all have energy resonating within our bodies, so the vibrations of the stones are believed to act as a semiconductor to enhance ingredients. A historical precedent and a current need for balance seem to be the right environment for us to be moving into the Stone Age – we’ll keep you posted.

How to create success Success Coach Annabelle Matson shares her strategies for creating your best year yet in 2018 @ANNABELLEMATSON

DEVELOP A VISION Are you clear on what you desire from life? It’s a pretty short life after all. What would you love to create in the time you’re here? How do you want to feel every day? What’s the kind of impact you want to create, whether it’s in your family, community or through your work? Take time at the beginning of the year to develop a clear vision of what you want to achieve in 2018 and get this out in front of you. You can develop this further through tools such as a vision board or daily visualisation. 138 HEADWAY.NET.NZ

When you regularly check in with your vision, you train your mind to believe your dreams are actually possible. When you believe your dreams are possible, then you are WAY more likely to take the action required to get it. This process moves you out of feeling stuck and motivates you into action. Having a vision not only gives your life purpose but it also becomes your leverage which allows you to push through when things get challenging. When you’re clear on what you want to achieve, you’re prepared to do anything to find a way around challenges. This is what I call making success automatic!


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” - Mark Twain BEHAVE YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS Once you have created a vision of what you want to achieve, then you need to act as if it were already true. Many people create a dream board and write their goals down, but then pour cold water over them by saying, “I have no idea how it will happen.” This is where we can get stuck in a place of “hoping” that one day things might change. Don’t get me wrong, having the right mindset is important BUT one of the quickest ways to getting where you want to go is to just start taking action and behave your way to success. Behaviour is the shortcut to the vision you have for your life. The certainty you’re wanting about whether your dreams are possible comes from YOU through your actions, not from waiting for the certainty to show up. You’ve got to be prepared to go out and make it happen. Ask yourself: If I knew with absolute certainty that I could achieve this, what kind of actions would I be taking right now? How would my behaviour be different?

START BEFORE YOU’RE READY Success can be scary. Sometimes you have to make a change before you feel ready to get things moving. No one reaches their dreams and goals by staying comfortable. New results require different actions and this will always bring up doubts, worries and fears that “you’re not ready yet”. But you’ve got to be prepared to go out and make it happen anyway. Confidence is not something we develop just by sitting in our houses thinking about all the things we will do when we feel more confident. We gain confidence by feeling fear and taking action anyway. We feel more confident when we actually do things we don’t feel ready for. If you’re feeling really stuck right now, all you need to do is to take one positive, deliberate action in the direction of your vision. It doesn’t have to be the scariest or the biggest, but that one action will kick start momentum which will drive you into a bigger and better life.

THE AIR WE BREATHE Be wise about the air that you breathe – rather than jogging alongside a busy road, choose a beautiful park or beach footpath. Being aware of our environment is half of the battle. Now all that’s left is to embrace a healthy you.

If you’ve ever needed extra inspiration to take a daily ocean dip, this is it. The huge saturation of the salt we get when we dunk ourselves in the great blue naturally draws toxins out of the body.



There is now a link between vitamin D and detoxification of the body (particularly mercury) so get your 20 minutes a day. The natural serotonin it creates is also great for brain function.



Spritz your favourite scent on your clothes rather than your skin.



ating your greens, exercising regularly and routinely getting eight hours of sleep a night sounds like the recipe to a healthy lifestyle, right? In theory yes, however there are certain hidden environmental factors that are cancelling out all our good work. Here’s what they are and how to overcome them.

Gypsy Food This season wellness guru Liz Gapes is hitting the road, so we’ve asked her to share some of her gypsy food tips for a healthy, glowing 2018


his summer, Sam and I have bought a camper van called Gertie and we are taking her around the South Island over the Christmas/New Year break. I’ve never spent a lot of time in the South Island and having an extended break to explore the beautiful country we live in is something I cannot wait to do. I’m super-excited to create fresh, simple, seasonal meals in our little camper kitchen, on the top of the gas cooker and with our portable Weber BBQ. Holidays like these remind me that you don’t need fancy kitchen tools to make delicious, wholesome food. But what you do need are fresh ingredients! I’m a chronic ‘stop stop stop there’s a vegie stall’ kind of gal so here is a sneak peek into what I will (and you should) be eating this summer. Vegies first! Summer corn on the cob is pretty hard to beat and an excellent source of both insoluble and soluble types of fibre. Insoluble fibre helps keep you regular and soluble fibre feeds the good bacteria in your gut. I like this best by soaking the husks in water for half an hour to stop them catching on fire, then wrapping your buttered, salt and peppered corn up in the husks and popping them on the barbeque to cook. Secondly, asparagus is so easy to prepare and is one of the highest vegetable sources of folate, which assists with cell growth and potassium to help lower blood pressure. Pop fresh asparagus on the barbeque with plenty of olive oil and garlic and you’ll have a dish even asparagus critics will love! For fruit, summer is about berries and cherries for me. The deeper the red the better, as the colour is a signal on how many nutrients it contains. Cherries are a superb source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. They are also a source of zinc for a healthy immune system, iron for energy, manganese for tip-top brain function and copper for energy. I love these best fresh or even with a square of dark chocolate if I’m feeling like something sweet. My second choice is stone fruit – they are the best, especially from roadside stalls or farmers markets. My favourites are nectarines and peaches. They are a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C which helps your body fight damaging free radicals, as well as making collagen to assist healthy skin. I’m excited to make my favourite nectarine summer salad. Join me by drizzling nectarine halves with some olive oil and grilling them for 2-3 minutes to get the grill marks. Make a dressing by whisking together two teaspoons of honey, two teaspoons of Dijon mustard and two teaspoons of white wine vinegar, as well as half a cup of olive oil to emulsify. Toss this dressing through 200 grams of spring mixed greens and add to it some slivered almonds, blue cheese and the grilled nectarines. Enjoy!
