The incredibly bold challenge of offering all women a colour with no ammonia and no odour, on which L’Oréal Research has been working for a number of years, was met when INOA launched in New Zealand last year. INOA’s secret is its revolutionary oil-based formula that allows this permanent hair colour to perform without the need for ammonia, transforming the colour experience for clients from start to finish.

For the first time in the history of Sebastian hairstyling, voluptuous volume is on the rise. Masses and masses of voluminous hair, minus the crunch. No matter how much product you use, hair stays soft. Some call it genius. We call it VOLUPTuousness. You’d better believe it. Naturally voluptuous volume is now yours for the making. No stick, no crunch, no compromise. Hair feels exactly as it should – unprecedentedly soft and supple to the touch. You saw it here first.



The Mod’s Hair Story

“You know – those guys who work with Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Sarah Moon and Peter Lindbergh …”

From humble family beginnings, Mod’s Hair has grown to become a fashion industry powerhouse. Here’s how it all happened.

he Mod’s Hair team strives to be on the cutting edge of popular culture. With our scissors in tow, we travel the world, crossing paths with fascinating people, discovering new sights and being inspired by the world of fashion. It has been a fascinating journey so far, but we’d like to take you back to where it all began.

16 MOD’S HAIR • April 2011

In the era of Jean-Luc Godard, the new wave of cinema and Yves Saint Laurent’s first prêt-à-porter line, two French brothers, Frédéric and Guillaume Bérard, became trainee hairdressers. Frédéric, the elder of the two, began his apprenticeship with Jean Yves Elrhodes in Paris. There he met Jean-Marc Maniatis and became his assistant. He also ventured into the studio for a publicity shoot for the French cosmetics line Obao. “With no experience, I somehow managed a Japanese style,” Frédéric recalls. “I had no idea how to crimp hair, so I made do with some cotton and other accessories.” Guillaume, 18 months younger and still at school, waited for his moment. His desire was fuelled by Frédéric’s success and the knowledge that his brother was meeting French stars such as Johnny Hallyday, Sylvie Vartan and Mireille Mathieu. “Every evening, I’d count up the tips [Frédéric] received during the

day. As soon as I could, I began training in a small neighbourhood salon,” Guillaume says. He quickly joined Elrhodes’ team as an assistant. From that moment on, Guillaume felt a desire to spread his own wings. Driven by the enthusiasm of youth, the elation of the May 1968 revolution in France, and a determination to move beyond the confines of a salon, Guillaume and Frédéric aligned themselves with two other

brothers decided to become studio hairdressers. This was the start of the Mod’s way. Influenced by London’s mod subculture and the musical Hair, Guillaume and Frédéric would go on to name their company Mod’s Hair. Their success was immediate, with acclaim coming in the world over. The switchboard operators at Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue and Votre Beauté were inundated with readers wanting to have their hair done by Guillaume and Frédéric – “you know, those guys who work with [photographers] Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Sarah Moon, Hans Feurer and Peter Lindberg.” Buoyed by the response, the Bérards opened their first salon, on Paris’ Rue de Rennes. Today Mod’s Hair salons are on every continent and the Mod’s Hair & Make-up Agency boasts a team of 25 studio stylists and make-up artists. Widely recognised by those in the profession as leaders, the Bérards’ legacy resonates around the world.

The Conscious Dollar As consumers, we are looking more carefully at the social impact of our spending habits.


erms such as ‘sustainability’, ‘responsibility’ and ‘ethical consumerism’ are often used as badges of honour in the marketing of beauty products. We are bombarded with images of botanical discoveries handpicked by indigenous cultures from plentiful rainforests, and spellbound by ethnic soundtracks. Marketing campaigns would have us believe that nature exists solely to help us reverse the effects of ageing. As consumers, we have often had trouble seeing the wood for the trees, regardless of how quickly they are disappearing to make our furniture. However, in this new hyper-technological age, we are also becoming hyper-aware. With the current global financial climate influencing our decision-making everywhere from the supermarket to the high street, we are looking more

carefully at the value of our dollar, as well as the impact that our spending has on the world we live in. At Mod’s Hair, we don’t just want to point a hypocritical finger. We are playing a clear role in helping to create a hopeful future for us and our children. With Mod’s, you too can be a part of the solution of social responsibility.

In 2006, Julianne Liebeck, the Director of Mod’s Hair Australia and New Zealand, signed up to World Vision’s microfinance project, Vision Fund, which enabled Mod’s to provide a hand to small business entrepreneurs in Mongolia and invest in their struggling communities. In 2009, Julianne travelled to Mongolia with World Vision to see for herself the need for ongoing support and the impact of this partnership. What seemed like a small sacrifice five years ago has become a very sizeable contribution.

Help break the cycle of poverty With every Mod’s product purchased, a contribution is made to help Third World entrepreneurs and their communities through the World Vision partnership, Vision Fund. Join Mod’s Hair in making a difference – we have seen it with our own eyes.

Save and reduce with refillable packaging Innovative reusable packaging allows Mod’s Hair to refill certain products and reduce the price. Being able to refill your original bottle multiple times is a true representation of sustainability.

Low synthetic content The use of quality botanical and marine extracts in our products means harsh traditional synthetics are not required to assist in the delivery of essential ingredients. The result is fewer petrochemicals released into the environment via your bathroom.

He also includes ultra-feminine details, such as tailored jackets, and other ‘girly’ touches, to inspire us to join the ranks. It’s impossible to miss the contribution of the hairdressing and make-up team. Kamo, our talented Mod’s Hair Agency stylist, has again sculpted the hair for a superb, dramatic result. Each head of hair is like a cloud, soaring away and bringing a touch of lightness to the shapes. The dried-hair effect brilliantly offsets the overall impact of the collection.
