Hi ho, hi ho, and back to work we go! Although some of us have worked solidly through the Summer months, the beautfying industry goes through a slow period over the hot season... And we deserved every minute of flipping through previous issues of Just Beauty Magazine while listening to the waves crashing on the shore under an umbrella! Our clients are now slowly trickling back into our salons, and calling for appointments in sheer desperation... We might be tempted to remind them though, that for next Summer they might consider


to have a keratin treatment, or a long lasting pedicure, both of which have now become safer, and the treatments of choice for summer-proof beauty! But most of all, we want to recommend detox treatments and make sure that as much as is in our power, we control and even restore the environmental damage sustained over the past harsh couple of months!! So read on and enjoy! Learn and pass on the information... We have done our best to bring to you the latest in all things beautifying, so you will remain as fabulously

NEWS Miss World 2012,

The fabulous gathering of 116 contestants from around the globe This year has been the most exciting year so far with a record number of countries taking part in this spectacular show which was watched by more than 2.5 billion televiewers and broadcast in over 160 countries. Miss China, a 23-year-old music lover who wants to work with the poor, was crowned Miss World 2012 at a ceremony in Inner Mongolia. Wearing a sparkling blue gown, Yu Wenxia waved to the audience in the Dongsheng Stadium in Ordos, located in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Organisers said that Yu beat out 115 contestants, a record, in the highly publicized annual

international beauty pageant. China also won the Miss World title in 2007, when model Zhang Zilin took the crown. “I love to smile and I like music,” Yu said in a video posted on the pageant’s website, in which she talks about her study of Chinese folk music. Sophie Moulds, a 19-yearold business student from Wales, took second place while Jessica Kahawaty, 23, a law student from

Australia, placed third. The venue at Dongsheng Stadium was packed with more than 50,000 people. The stage design was amazing and the background graphics really add to make this spectacular! Malta was represented by Daniela Darmanin on behalf of Modelle International who are the licence holders for Miss World Jersey Ltd.

Robert, who won the title of Mr World Malta last year during an event organised by Licence holders Modelle International, is expected to battle tough competition from 80 other contestants for the title. Mr World is not a body building show, but a contest about style, charm and good looks. It will also test the contestants’ spirit with a series of physical and mental tests. All the contestants will take part in two separate shows – a fashion show where modelling ability and stage presentation are judged followed by the final show. PHOTOGRAPHY BERNARD POLIDANO

Make-Up, Nails & Well-being


Gel & Acrylic Nails

The truth about lifting Lifting of Gel or Acrylic from the natural nail is one of the most common problems for nail technicians. Working with high quality products and their correct use, as well as correct preparation of the natural nail are important elements to avoid lifting. The following are the most common reasons for lifting. Karolina Dreliszak Aquilina Silcare International Trainer ITEC Nail Technology Specialist

Natural Nail Preparation

Contamination of products and tools

Weakness of natural nail

Wrong natural nail preparation is one of the main reasons. The natural nail plate should be gently filed with a soft file (min grid 180), and the cuticle should be pushed back. The nail technician should take extra care to ensure that the nail plate is matt especially around the sides and cuticle area and that no cuticle is stuck to the nail. Application of a dehydrating product such as Silcare Primer will aid the bonding of Gel or Acrylic.

Keeping your products and brushes clean is vital in this profession. Even the smallest contamination of products can cause lower performance or change in their chemical structure. The following points should be taken in consideration in our day-to-day work: • Products should be always kept in their original packing. Refilling the container or changing it can easily cause contamination of the product. • When filing, all jars should be closed to avoid the dust falling into the product. • Brushes should always be kept clean and stored in a box to keep dust away from sticking to them and should be wiped before and after use. The brush should be cleaned with a liquid designed for this purpose and not gel cleaners or nail polish removers. A liquid such as Silcare Brush Cleaner will allow you to keep your brush spotless while maintaining their perfect condition. As many of you know, brushes may be quite expensive so caring for them will not only prevent contamination of products but will also save you from buying a new brush too often. A good brush is 50% of the success. • Do not use the same brush for Acrylic and Gel! For each method you should have a separate brush. I strongly recommend having separate brushes for builder gel, colour gel, French white gel and glittery gels. • When applying the product to the nail avoid touching the skin. Sweat can be transferred to the brush and block correct bonding of the product. This applies to all products used such as building gels, colour gels, finishing gels, acrylics etc. • The Monomer should be never poured from a jar back to the bottle. The remaining liquid after the application of acrylic (if any) should be disposed correctly.

To my disappointment many technicians use wrong techniques of filing leading to a damaged or weakened nail bed. This comes from poor training and “ejja ha mmorru” attitude. The damages done to the natural nail have a strong impact on the lifting issue and the general strength of the overlay. Common mistakes that we should avoid are: • Use of harsh nail files: on the natural nail the minimum grid of the file used should be not less than 180. The filing should be done gently, our aim is just to matt the nail and not to remove it. • Trying to remove an already lifted product with tools such as cuticle cutters or pushers. This will cause the lifting to get bigger and will damage the top layers of the nail plate and can even lead to onycholysis. Such lifting should be filed down with a proper filing technique which takes a few seconds.

Product Application and filing

The most common mistakes that can cause lifting when applying the product are: • A layer of gel or acrylic which is too thin is applied leading to a lack of C curves. • The application of product too close to the side walls and/or cuticle area. • In the case of an Acrylic System: the wrong proportion of powder and monomer is mixed. The bead is too dry or too liquid which destroys the balance of molecules in the acrylic mix. • In the case of a Gel System: insufficient curing time. The gel dries from top to bottom so even if the gel is hard on top it may still be soft in deeper layers. • The nails are too long with incorrect balance of C curves. • The product is too thick from the cuticle end which reduces the flexibility of the product. • Thick free edge. While in short nails it may not make a difference, in long nails it will create pressure at the tip end which can be the reason forcing the nail to lift or break.

The above points constitute the foundation of being a professional nail technician. Obviously one can argue that lifting can be caused by clients picking on their nails. As much as I agree that this happens frequently, it is our responsibility to guide the client and give the right home care advice. However, from experience in seeing the work of several nail techs in the market I would say that unfortunately the client is the least of the problem.

Ensuring work-life Balance Beauty and Hair salons are traditionally thought of as work-places which support the flexibility required by working parents. The work-force is statistically predominantly female, and most in the industry are self-employed with a lot working from home, or organising appointments at the client's own home on a flexible schedule. Perhaps other industries should learn a lesson or two from the flexibility, but that's not to say that the workingconditions are perfect or entirely conducive to a work-life balance. Just Beauty met up with Maria Theresa Portelli from the National Council for the Promotion of Equality


SEPTEMBER 2012 | issue 11

who gives us useful tips and information which can help maximise the efficacy and comfort of working parents in the Beauty Industry.

Just Beauty: When was the NCPE set up? Maria Theresa Portelli: NCPE is an independent, government funded body set up in January 2004 by virtue of Chapter 456 of the Laws of Malta, Equality for Men and Women Act. JB: What would you say are its main aims? MTP: NCPE works to ensure that Maltese society is a society free from any form of discrimination based on: - sex/gender and family responsibilities, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief, racial or ethnic origin, and gender identity in employment; banks and financial institutions, as well as education; and - racial/ethnic origin and gender in the provision of goods and services and their supply. JB: From research conducted, how far are Maltese work practices from the ideal when it comes to promoting and facilitating equality among the sexes? MTP: Family-friendly measures are methods and possibilities created for workers to find ways to balance and reconcile workrelated demands with family needs. These measures include various support and work arrangements allowing parents to attend to their child care responsibilities as well as facilitate parental choice on work and care. Such measures include for example, flexi-time, job sharing, reduced hours and teleworking. Currently there is a much higher uptake of family-friendly measures from women when compared to their male counterparts. When looking towards the future, it is imperative that equality in the roles of both women and men in all spheres of society is looked at for men to be able to also make use of family friendly measures and enjoy the upbringing of their children.

JB: Is the lack of flexibility at most conservatively run businesses one of the main reasons for the low percentage of parents, mostly women on the work-force? MTP: There are various reasons for the low percentage of females in the labour market, mainly the type of work women choose; women who prefer not be economic independent; and the caring of children or any other dependent family members. Through the Equality Mark that NCPE is currently awarding to organisations which foster gender equality among the workforce, it is evident that there are organisations which do value and recognise the importance of flexibility in the labour market. A family-friendly organisation tries to facilitate the reconciliation between work and family responsibilities for its staff and to make them feel supported in balancing their work and outside work commitments. Organisations which employ persons with caring responsibilities reap a number of benefits, namely: - encouraging gender diversity at each level of the organisation and decision-making process means more innovative approaches based on the different skills and experiences of both genders; - both men and women want challenges and development opportunities from work but also choice and flexibility in order to accommodate their personal lives; - equal access to family-friendly measures helps organisations retain valuable staff thus leading to decreased training costs; and - by involving both genders into their decision-making process, organisations are more likely to meet customers’ needs and expectations.

JB: What easy changes can an employer make to enhance flexibility for working parents? MTP: Employers are encouraged to be well-versed with the family-friendly initiatives covered by the law, in order to be in a better position to offer more of such measures. It is also suggested to employers to establish a formal policy indicating conditions of access to these measures. Each request for the use of family-friendly measures is to be considered on its own merits, taking into consideration the needs of the employee, employer and business. Therefore, this requires matters to be discussed in order for a compromise to be reached for the benefit of the parties involved. One typical example which involves greater flexibility is the possibility of reporting to work later in the morning while the minutes or hours worked less in the morning are then worked later on in the afternoon, also known as flexi-time JB: Does the NCPE have a framework to help employers implement such changes? In other words, where can a small business owner turn to when they need advice and help to enhance their employees work-life balance? MTP: NCPE fosters work-life balance and assists employers to implement it. Currently, NCPE is working on an EU co-financed project entitled ESF3.47 – Unlocking the Female Potential aimed

at encouraging equal opportunities to both men and women a the place of work. Through the project’s campaign, organisations are applying for the Equality Mark. This Equality Mark is awarded to organisations which prove that they are gender-equal in the opportunities they offer. NCPE is meeting these organisations, and assessing their policies and practices, including recruitment and employment practices and the implementation of family-friendly measures to ensure that a commitment towards gender equality is evident in these entities. Furthermore, on a regular basis NCPE offers guidance to employers in the drafting and formulation of equality policies and offers training on non-discrimination and equality as well. JB: Is the NCPE working with other national agencies to improve the workplace infrastructure to accommodate balanced practices? MTP: Consultation with other entities is highly important for NCPE’s work. A case in point involves the previously mentioned EU co-funded project ESF3.47 – Unlocking the Female Potential where unions and employers’ organisations occupy the role of partners with NCPE in this project, assisting the Commission to recognise and understand the needs of both the employers and the employees.

Equality works both ways!

Although we overwhelmingly speak of the female counterpart as being largely discriminated against and underpaid on the workplace, a reader wrote to us, highlighting the fact that in the Beauty industry, it is the male that often gets to experience the sharp edge of the knife!

Kenneth Abela writes: 'A couple of years ago I paid a visit to the Hotel-run Spa ... to inquire why my applications to work at the Spa were always ignored... At the spa reception desk I was told, ‘sorry, we do not employ men’. I complained... to the Hotel Management and even to the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE). I was subsequently asked to attend for an interview, in which the HR manager insisted that they do not discriminate, and ‘we even had a male therapist here at one time’. In spite of promises that I would be called and various follow ups from my end, I was not contacted again. A few weeks ago this same Hotel published the same advert and I applied once again, and they did not even have the decency of sending an acknowledgment.' 'The fact that I have successfully worked for over 12 years in the industry, and that apart from various therapy related certificates and diplomas, I am ITEC qualified in physiatry, aromatherapy, beauty therapy and presently completing a spa treatments ITEC course appears to have no value, probably because (a) I am male and (b) I am now 53 years of age.'

This problem is unfortunately not limited to Malta.

A EU survey had found that 46% of Europeans think that discrimination on the basis of age is widespread, the figure for Malta being 39%. Discrimination on the basis of gender is perceived by an average of 40 % of the EU population, the figure for Malta being 45%.

Let’s go to the heart of the hair to understand the action of


The Brazilian protective and smoothing treatment, the security of a healthy and easy-to-style hair.


ONLY 4 STEPS: • Shampoo • Application • Brushing • Smoothing Hair damaged by hair straightener

Action of Curless Keratine

Fiber protected against thermal degradation

Keratin is the main constituent of the hair over water, lipids, mineral elements and melanin. It gives hair most of its properties.

The active ingredients of Curless KERATINE penetrate the hair to nourish it, to fill in gaps and cracks and to protect the capillary fibre.

Keratin gives hair its elasticity, its water permeability and its electrostatic properties. Keratin is not regenerated during the hair growth and it is therefore necessary to preserve it.

Under the action of hot irons the active ingredients of the treatment are sealed and imprisoned on the hair.

Damaged hair tends to break, it is dry, more electrostatic and harder to style. Healthy and protected, the hair is more manageable, soft, shiny and easy-to-style.

The smoothed fiber is coated, shiny and protected. Curless KERATINE products are completely animal products-free, the Research and Development department has carefully selected the best from nature and science.

What is formaldehyde and how can it affect my health?

Formaldehyde is a colourless, strong-smelling gas that presents a health hazard if workers are exposed to it. You can be exposed to formaldehyde if you breathe it into your lungs, if it gets into your eyes, or if it is contained in a product that gets onto your skin. You can also be exposed accidentally if you touch your face,


the treatment can be completed in 2 Hours Maximum


up to 3 months* OF EASY DAILY STYLING for your customer *when used with Cureless Keratine maintenance products

eat food, or drink after using a product containing formaldehyde without first washing your hands. It can irritate the eyes and nose, and cause coughing and wheezing. Formaldehyde is a “sensitizer,” which means that it can cause allergic reactions of the skin, eyes, and lungs such as asthma-like breathing problems and skin rashes and itching. When formaldehyde is in a product that gets sprayed into the eyes, it can damage the eyes and can cause blindness. It is also a cancer hazard. Formaldehyde is a health hazard, whether in a product or in the air.

is entirely safe to use and conforms to current legislation as it contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde generators or paraben. trade enquiries: salon services limited / telephone 21 449 236 / email / web Look for Salon Services Malta

At Mylene’s Salon we offer Big Sexy Hair products. One of our best sellers is the weather proof humidity resistant spray.Our team highly recommends this product since it is suitable for our humid country and it can be used on all types of hair. Client’s feedback is 100% performance and satisfaction.”

I haven’t had a client that wasn’t pleased with the product. All my prom and wedding styles have been sealed off, and no one has complained of flat or frazzled prom hair due to the humidity or heat. One client is already on her second bottle and loves the fact that her big wavy hair doesn’t grow by the hour when she’s applied it. It smells great and the product performs as promised..

EXTREME HAIR SEMINAR excited & inspired hair professionals were asked to give their impressions of the extremes trading seminar

What did you learn at the Seminar?

In this seminar, expert advice highlighted new ways to enhance professional skills in hairdressing. This was inspirational!

How do you think these Seminars can help you in your career?

Seminars are both informative and essential to map out a career of continual growth and success, and they are an effective means to socialize and share ideas in this profession.

What do you find interesting in this new range of Angel hair products and GK hair straightening? This new range is just amazing! The organic shampoos and conditioners are expertly formulated using organic and plant based ingredients to make all types of hair shine and full of life. The GK system is also interesting in that with JUVEXIN, it is scientifically proven to protect and restore hair to its youthful state, so this system will improve the health of the hair, leaving it shiny and smooth for up to 5 months. Will you recommend these products to your clients? Oh yes for sure! At Paradise Zone Safi we have already recommended these products and also handed out samples which in return clients asked specifically for them.

Marthese Busuttil Testaferrata de Noto Paradise Zone hair & beauty lounge

I found the course to be very informative and well organized. The demonstration using GK products by Warren were professionally done. I would suggest to all my clients to use organic products as they will not harm neither the client nor the environment. I am very pleased with these products and feel very convinced about the new organic Angel products and will be happy to recommend these new products.


I'm still a student and at school one does not learn everything, just basic techniques of colour and straightening. Thanks to the GK hair educator, Warren Doyle, I had the opportunity not just to learn how to apply the GK hair straightening product, but even to try it out and to be by his side during the demonstration. No toxic smell, so no harm to the hairdresser either. Thanks to Mark Stafrace, I had the opportunity to learn more about the colours that the Angel offers. The other thing I learned which is very important in this career is cutting and styling. It's not just cutting as we know it with normal wet hair, scissors and a comb, but in a total different way: On dry hair, with 2 or 3 scissors attached to each other.

tutor for Angel Professional

A new era in permanent hair removal has begun. Keeping skin smooth and hair free can take a lot of time and effort. And the existing permanent hair removal methods are often not suitable for all skin types and hair colours.

The advantages of the Épi-Last system • • • • • • • • • • • •

Effective for all Fitzpatrick skin types Effective for all hair colours Best working solution for removing downy facial hairs Suitable for all parts of the body Épi-Last Serums do not increase sun exposure risk Organic active ingredients Paraben free Oil and cream free Application of the Épi-Last serums is painless Cost effective, safer and a more active solution than any other permanent hair removal product Winner of “Best newcomer in the cosmetics industry” award. (Wellness Fair, Kortrijk, Belgium 2009) Épi-Last has been tried and tested successfully for several years in selected European countries

Extensive Swiss microbiological research has resulted in an innovative permanent hair removal method that is suitable for everybody:

Épi-Last. Revolutionary permanent hair removal with organic enzyme technology. Using only natural enzymes like those that already exist in the human body, Épi-Last is a safe and effective method to permanently remove unwanted facial and body hair on an organic basis. It is even suitable for specific zones like the eyebrows, which cannot be treated safely by IPL and Laser. Unwanted hairs are removed with our special oil free Crystal Wax, which only sticks to the hairs and not the skin. The Enzyme Serums enter the empty hair follicle and convert the germinative cells into amino-acids. These amino acids are transported harmlessly through the lymphatic system. This process ensures that the cells responsible for hair growth can’t produce any more hair.

Deep Follicles & Obstinate Hair

Deep hair follicles are found, on the back and chest when it comes to men, whereas in women, it is found at the back of the upper thighs. Quite a number of sessions are required to get rid of such hair follicles with other IPL and Laser machines as much of the energy is scattered on the skin. But with OPTIMA 518, because of the GEM-PL Technology (Geometrical Energy Management) working under the skin and because of a special Deep Hair Follicle program, fantastic results are obtained in less sessions. Hence less costs for the client. OPTIMA 518 uses special hair removal techniques to remove very LIGHT AND BLOND HAIR mainly on women’s upper lip surface. It also has a special program to treat people with SKIN SENSITIVITY TO LIGHT.

The number of melanocytes is the same in all people, differences in skin colour are due mainly to the amount of pigment these cells produce and disperse to keratinocytes. Some people have freckles due to the accumulation of melanin. As one grows older, age spots may develop. These flat blemishes look like freckles and range in colour from light brown to black. With OPTIMA 518, very good results are achieved after two to four treatments.

The OPTIMA 518 uses specific light intensity doze and broadband wavelengths that enable it to stimulate the cells to produce more collagen and induces collagen and elastic tissue synthesis, which results in the rejuvenation of the skin. This procedure can be done every two to three weeks. OPTIMA 518 is fast, efficient, painless and affordable with very low running costs. Plus great PROVEN RESULTS.
