Hiya, just a quick blog to let you know about a brilliant new product from Kérastase we have just launched in the salon: ‘Fibre Architecte’
The buzz on the product is that it is an ‘icon in the making’ as it is a the first product to have a double pump dispenser containing 2 different solutions which you mix together to activate. It contains complex Ciment-Cylane (intra-Cylane + Ceramide R + Pro-Keratin) which targets brittle, very damaged lengths and split ends and is ideal for hair that has been over-processed or damaged from excessive heat. You simply apply to dry hair and instantly reap the rewards of healthy, smooth hair.
I have left a bottle out on the reception desk so do pop in and have a try and see how amazing this product really is!
I’ve just been flicking through the December edition of Vogue for some inspiration and came across the New York Cool feature shot by one of my favourite photographers Terry Richardson. I take inspiration from everywhere I possibly can; for example my recent Redken TRIBE show was totally inspired by all things digital and I wanted to portray the significance of social media in our lives with my looks. It’s always important in any creative industry to keep your eyes open; visit museums, read newspapers, talk to everyone you possibly can…
So anyway, Terry Richardson is the king of cool and he captures in images what I like to capture when I’m styling hair; natural, candid, raw shots with minimal (none if I can help it) post-production. Hair is a real thing, it’s not perfect – I love a few flyaway and imperfections. It’s edgy, grunge and very street style, which I love.
I also love that he doesn’t use conventional models, in my recent collection Starlight I went for a return to the 90s heroin chic but with a feminine 2011 twist with clean hair and fresh faced nude skin. I was actually inspired from all of the amazing street style blogs that have appeared over the past few years like fashiontoast, Style by Kling, Susie Bubble etc I love that there is now an outlet for young people interested in art and fashion and they’re now so successful that they’re sources of inspiration for some of the world\s best glossy ad campaigns!
I’d love to know where you find your inspiration and what makes you tick so get in touch and let me know!
