editorial The silver lining As I quickly approach the age of 30, my body has started to show signs of my declining AFRICA youth. I have never been one for over concern when faced with the thought of getting older, until the happy expression lines on my forehead and smile lines around my eyes started becoming permanent fixtures on my face.

At the same time, my mom, youthful and energetic as ever at the age of 54, started experiencing hair thinning and fallout. The number of grey strands increased dramatically, changing her once silky soft hair to a dry and brittle texture. As I bear a resemblance to my mom, I have always hoped to age as gracefully as she has. So, it was important for me to seek expert advice for her on the adjustment of hair care products and supplements, to enjoy fuller and softer hair again.

Happy Tresses will answer some of your many questions on ageing hair. Local stylists offer their expert advice on how to remain the free spirited 20 year old you still see yourself as, and get younger radiant hair. It is evident that no matter what our age, genetic make up or products we use, eventually we all have to deal with the ageing process. It is ultimately how we live our lives, care for our bodies and enrich the mind that will allow us to stay youthful and embrace our physical signs of wisdom. Happy living!

The collection celebrated the anything-goes era of Liverpool and Manchester clubs. John said: “When Christopher Shannon was a kid going out to clubs in Liverpool and Manchester he always wanted to dress up and stand out. A cheap way of doing this was a little glitter spray. So, we took inspiration from Christopher’s love of glitter and the super club scene, completely covering the model’s heads in coloured glitter and finishing it off with our Glitter Blast hair spray.” The looks created for the runway were done to compliment the collections, but this being London, they could even be worn around town without turning too many heads!

Cute cats. Pink and pastels. Big eyes and plasticperfect. Find out exactly where this culture comes from in a new book on Kawaii.

ute. Lovable. Adorable. Kawaii is all this and more – trendsetting, innocent and desirable. Outside of Japan, the best-known example of the tradition of Kawaii is arguably Hello Kitty, but this is just a small part of the story. Recent years have seen the fame of this Japanese cultural phenomenon spread throughout the world, rapidly becoming absorbed into the international psyche. However, the concept behind the culture has remained a mystery to most non-Japanese people – until today. A new book from author, Manami Okazaki, and photographer, Geoff Johnson, promises to reveal all. Kawaii! Japan’s culture of cute

Knowing Kawaii

Kawaii! Japan’s Culture of Cute Manami Okazaki and Geoff Johnson by Prestek 224 pages with 240 colour illustrations.

(published by Prestel) explores current Kawaii culture by first tracing its roots in Harajuku (a district of Tokyo which led Japanese fashion trends in the 1970s), Sanrio (the Japanese market leader company in Kawaii products) and girls’ Shõjo manga. Back in the 1970s, Japanese schoolgirls rebelled against traditional writing styles by coming up with their own form of handwriting. By using mechanical pencils to produce lateral writing, they created fine lines and rounded characters (as opposed to the original vertical arrangement of thick graphics and fine characters) which they then personalised with smiley faces and hearts. School authorities banned this new fashion, but it was too late – Kawaii-mania had begun. The new cute writing style was adopted by comics and magazines and gradually infiltrated all other forms of media and merchandising. Thus today, Kawaii characters can be found everywhere, in all aspects of life – from architecture, to food, to public services. It’s not all sunshine and cheeriness. As the book’s authors point out, Kawaii also has a dark side, with Gothic versions and alternative formats. However, little-girl cute characters remain the most popular – so much so that the Japanese markets often prove to be globally counter-trend, as shown when they rejected both the Barbie doll and Cabbage Patch dolls, because of their ‘non-cute’ features. Talking about or describing the movement is nowhere near as effective as actually showing it in action and this book does just that, with 240 fabulous photos and illustrations of Kawaii brought to life – in food, on consumer products and outside, live on the streets.


Find cuteness everywhere – it's a huge industry. More than fashion – Kawaii to be worn, eaten and lived.

Kawaii – conquering the world with sweet, innocent cuteness. books

Young & restless “Taylor is a man’s man. He doesn’t have to try to hard to look great...”

A couple days of facial growth and simple natural hair always works on an ultra masculine man. What I love about this look is the straight forwardness that blends very well with his nonconformist wardrobe for the red carpet. He doesn’t have to try to hard, so he should never be over-styled. I would not change a thing with his hair style or colour. This modern Caesar is a perfect style for Taylor's oval face and the 5 o’clock shadow helps to balance out his forehead...the grey hair lends the sex appeal. To style, I would simply smooth wet towel dried hair with a brush and work Redken for Men polish up pomade into hands to warm and distribute evenly through out hair for added shine and control. When you’ve got it, it shows. Photos: Getty Images


Carly Rae Jepsen

Full Frontal Fringe! I LOVE this look Carly's fringe is perfect for her long face shape. It helps to bring the attention to her eyes. The soft ends and long layers give Carly a fresh look from her blunt edges of last year! Her hair colour change from dark brown to cinnamon red absolutely suits her pale skin tone better and brightens her face. The eye make-up makes her blue eyes pop because the shadow is a similar colour to her hair. It’s very complimentary. This low-layered cut gives her double identity, as it looks casually polished and moves when worn down, yet the length allows for a multitude of styling options, including up-styles. Her black dress with see through panels and sculpted cut outs is fun, yet sophisticated enough to elevate her style status from a one hit wonder to someone with staying power.

Frank Ocean

As eccentric and explicit as Frank's R&B lyrics may be, his elegant look here is just the opposite. This classic short crop works great with his facial hair in helping to shorten the appearance of his long-shaped face and even compensates for the appearance of his somewhat pointed chin. It would be very interesting to see him do something a bit more adventurous in the future. The good news for him is that there is not much styling product needed for this cut. Frank decided to opt for the easy way out! With a look like this, I would advise getting regular trims to keep it looking polished with clean edges. Although I am not a big fan of bow ties, I think that Frank pulls this one off with style. The finely striped pattern almost looks like an optical illusion – a style that pushes the limits befitting of a talented musician from New Orleans.

id one size ever really fit all? The idea that gender and gener­ ation don’t matter is a modern myth. Today, hairdressers specialise, catering to sharply defined niche markets. Whether they be kids' cuts, bridal consultants or what used to be a mere 'barber shop', today anyone can find a specialist to fit the bill. At the top of the list: the mature, chic woman.

FIFTY MORE SHADES OF GREY

Model Yasmina Rossi breaks two taboos at once. Not only does she wear her glorious mane natural silver-white; she also wears it super-long. Oops, make that three, no, four taboos: Rossi also cuts her own hair, and doesn’t have a hairdresser. She remembers her first white hair at age 12, and has never looked back. Would this work for everyone? Gina Khan, San Franciscobased educator and spokesperson for Matrix Logics Colors, cautions against extremes. “Age can be a great liberation, but at all costs avoid what I called the ‘zipper’ – that white seam of roots down the parting of dark, dyed hair,” she warns. She also recommends soft, face-framing layers, keeping attention above the shoulder as body parts naturally travel south with each passing decade. Diana Lewis Jewell, author of Going Gray, Looking Great and founder of Café-Gray.com, a sorority for the silver-tressed, adds “Going grey can help a woman discover new energy and vitality. The transition does require that you re-think your make-up, because silver, pewter and ivory are actual colours. Suddenly, you may be able to wear a shade of aqua-turquoise, or a brilliant purple, or red, or a pastel that simply never worked when you had dark hair.”

'Hairdressing archeologist' and senior stylist at Studio 921 Salon in Baltimore, MD, Janet Stephens creates elaborate, but weightless styles by sewing the hair in place as the Romans did. Great hairdressing and cutting-edge trends often make just such a nod to the past, and nowhere is this truer than in braids – that can range from rural to regal, composed to chaotic. Check out Janet's popular YouTube channel featuring tutorials on historic hairdressing. She advises: “If you have naturally skinny hair and want a fatter braid, plump it up by mini-crimping your hair first.”

She weaves radiant colour through grey, so that you still have some pigmentation.

With monochromatic pale skin and pale hair, you may start to resemble a big powderedsugar donut. Claudio Lazo, owner of C The Salon in Studio City, California and Trend Aficionado for Wella, champions hair like Yasmina Rossi’s, with two big ‘Ifs’. “If the hair is in good condition, shoulder-length is way sexier than any pixie-cut. When your hair gets to be 75 percent or more percent silver or white, back off on the colouring and allow Nature to take its course.”

RECKLESSNESS, RISK, REGRET

The Three R’s of permanent body modification such as tattoos, piercings and microdermal implants. According to Dennis Joseph, World Educator for BaByliss Pro, a growing segment of the population seeks the thrill without the commitment. Detroit-based Joseph is a master of what’s called the 'hair tattoo', a design shaved into a portion of the hair. Not to be confused with another more literal kind of hair tattoo, scalp micropigmentation, which is where a balding man’s head is inked with tiny dots suggesting

Introducing a shaved motif into your haircut: awesome head-rush. long-departed hair follicles. History suggests that this wearable art form emerged in the urban barbershops of African-American and Latino communities, where young sports fans would have team logos 'carved' into the sides of a close-cut natural fade. From there, the concept has skyrocketed, especially among women. Joseph teaches the technique as a national platform artist for BaByliss Pro, and explains that the hair tattoo appeals “…to anyone who wants to express themselves. We view

hair as the ultimate accessory and fashion statement. Because it’s hair, you can change that statement easily. It grows out.” Joseph’s hair tattoo begins with a consultation, identifying boundaries so that there is no remorse later. If you’ve just been fired, or are freshly rebounding from a break-up, he suggests a cooling-off period of a week or two, because he says, “Sometimes the urge passes by the next full moon.” Once the client is in the chair, his key tool is the BaByliss Ferrari X-2 clipper, which gets its power from a Ferrari-made engine. For fine shading, he then traces through the design with a trimmer. Other practitioners of this hair art simply use water and an exceptionally sharp straightrazor. Celebrity portraits, gaming heroes, comic book characters, flags, mottos and local sports insignia are specialties for some, often highlighted with brilliant tinting. As with ink, placement is key. Many clients come to Joseph for a 'stealth' tattoo: an undercover tatt which may easily be hidden under a longer top-side. This comes in handy if you have a legit day-job. The stealth tatt allows you to sweep your camouflage layers down into a straight-arrow pony or bob while on the clock. Once you punch out, your alter-ego is free to emerge. Joseph explains that while men generally favour an angular style with centered elements, he tends toward wavy, softer curved forms on an asymmetrical base for women. “Miley, Rihanna and lots of other recording artists have really brought this art form into the mainstream for women,” he says. “There is something incredibly fresh and hot about


Sal Misseri

Kevin Gatto, owner of Philly’s Verde Salon, suggests that guys master a few basic blow-dryer moves for an unfussy, but groomed look, which seems to come naturally. He says, “I can definitely speak from personal experience that my own morning ritual includes drying my hair with our FHI Heat Global Professional Nano Ionic Styling Dryer that makes my hair feel thicker and fuller.” He recommends the FHI Heat Global Professional Volumizing Iron to create a more polished and finished look. In general, the experts advise that guys go easy on product for the most contemporary expression of manhood. Anthony Cole, Sebastian Professional, advises, “When it comes to styling, one of my go-to’s for men is Sebastian Professional Texturizer. I also use pomades, such as Sebastian Professional Craft Clay and Shine Crafter. These two can even be cocktailed together.” What to aim for: a fusion of classic gentleman’s polish with the raw testosterone of rock ‘n roll. If your hair looks good, but remains immobile in high winds, you’re using too much product. If you avoid high winds altogether, because you’re afraid a little breeze will ruin your image, you need a new haircut. Carruthers (who is a fan of 'big, burly beards') advises that men “choose a silhouette with movement. You want your hair to be kinetic, dynamic and ready for adventure. You’re a man, not a mannequin.”

We deeply want to believe that all it takes is a cake of soap and a cup of strong coffee for Don Draper to look that good, even though we know better. On its way out: gel. Just sayin’.

hen photographer Morgan Miller and stylist Marciano challenged Nick Pagano with a theme of Tarot Cards for a new collection photo shoot, he got right on it, designing ad hoc coifs for each personage of the Major Arcanum. However, not having consulted the cards themselves, little could this team have known that greater forces were at work to thwart their best-laid plans. Storm warnings were already in place for the second day of the two-day shoot as the now legendary Hurricane Sandy was gaining strength and poised to wreak havoc and destruction. Everything was being cancelled as people barricaded themselves indoors and businesses boarded up their windows, bracing themselves for the onset of the powerful winds and torrential rains. Not to be deterred by mere acts of God, the artists prepared to do what had to be done. With just three female and two male models showing up, Nick

As in a Tarot reading – the art of the hairdresser can convey a message about who we are, where we are going, and what we are doing in our lives. There is no real magic or mystery involved. It's all in a day's work behind the chair.

White commuting into moss green, astonishingly mixing with soft pink, turns suddenly mint green, blending with yellow, transforming into salmon, merging again with white and again in an endless, colourful game.


“Hairstyles are finally enhanced thanks to the use of the new Davines styling line more inside, developed with the help of Angelo Seminara.� vision
