for Fudge Professional under the direction of the brand’s colour guru and Global Head of

Education, Tracy Hayes. The shoot was attended by

Maria Rågberg from Uniklipp AS salon

in Norway, and was just one part of her

prize for becoming Fudge Professional’s

latest Mixology Master. Maria assisted the creative team from

X-presion Hair in creating the technically intricate 3D colour effect which is based on the

Spanish salon group’s Disruptive X-presion technique. The objective for the new Fudge

campaign was to achieve a very rich collection going from a commercial and elegant style

through to a more editorial finish, playing with colours, shapes and textures. While we’re

on the subject of the creation of fabulous hair, one of our main features in this issue of

Estetica UK - Cutting it on the Catwalks - focuses on the seamless backstage work that is

required when creating the hair looks on the runways at the top designer events such as

London Fashion Week. In our professional section, our top theme combines the hot topics

of interior salon design and eco-friendly sustainability. As well as looking at the practical

things you can do to save energy, we also touch on the subjects of recycling waste and

choosing to use retail ‘clean, green’ products.

Kerry Washington

ANNE VECK: When it comes to ponytails it's all about placement.

Secure it far forward and high on the head to emphasise the

cheekbones as worn by KW. I love the fact that the elastic is hidden

with a small section of hair from a piece of the tail. It finishes the style

nicely and make it the perfect style for a red carpet event. The makeup

is a tad too pink for me and I think it would have looked better a

bit more smudged.

LEAH DURRANT: Kerry has opted for a very ‘out there’ look with

a sleek, high ponytail, bright eye shadow and a strong berry lip and

her embroidered dress. I love Kerry’s berry lips, which look fantastic

and super flattering on darker skin tones like Kerry’s. For me,

I would have paired this strong, bold lip with a subtler eye shadow

look like a brown, bronze or gold shade. However, Kerry’s choice of

bright pink does accentuate her gorgeous dark eyes.

JESSICA NEIL: I absolutely love the eye make-up and the dusty pink

tone on the eyes works beautifully with Kerry’s skin tone. I would

have liked to have seen a slightly brighter shade of pink to really

bring out Kerry’s own eye colour. Looking at the hair, I’m really

liking the simplicity of the high pony tail but, to make more of a

statement, I'd wrap the hair around the base of the pony, moving

further up to give a stronger solid shape which would help emphasise

Kerry’s beautiful cheekbones.

Kerry Washington’s

COS SAKKAS: The beautiful embroidery on her statement dress

needed a little bit of powering up to strengthen the look, so the

high ponytail is perfect for this. Sitting high on her crown, it

enhances her high cheekbones and screams ‘I am an independent

woman’. Wearing her hair away from her face has extended her

cheekbones and leaves her neckline nice and clean. However, the

hair softly sits over one shoulder so she looks feminine rather than

hard and unapproachable.

Jennifer Lawrence

ANNE VECK: Sexy and simple is the main idea for this 'do. I love

the soft tendrils at the front to show off her natural curl. Jennifer

Lawrence looks gorgeous here in a feminine up-do that makes the

most of her fine hair type and delicate facial features. I love what

she's done with the colour; lightening her natural ash blonde hair

with light beige and gold tones throughout. This multidimensional

look is ideal for her complexion and makes her eyes pop, while

adding the appearance of thickness to her hair.

LEAH DURRANT: Jennifer has gone for a very classy yet effortless

look. Her hair colour is very on trend at the moment with a darker

stretched root blending into her long blonde locks that were styled

into soft waves and then put into a stunning updo. Strands of hair

were left out at the front, which perfectly frame Jennifer’s face and

accentuate her features. Jennifer’s makeup was kept pretty natural,

with a gorgeous brown shimmery eye shadow and nude pink lip to

match her pretty and sophisticated dress.

JESSICA NEIL: One of my favourite actresses. She always looks

effortlessly beautiful. I love how dewy and flawless Jennifer’s skin

looks but would love it if she had a stronger lip colour. A deep plum

would really give this look the wow factor. I love the texture within

this look but think having her hair down and wavy would take her

from the girl next door to red carpet glam.

COS SAKKAS: Jennifer is a chameleon when it comes to her hair.

She likes to play around with textures and shapes but knows what

suits her. Her beautiful, soft, face-framing curls sit perfectly with

her pretty-in-pink look. The dark roots contrast with the pastel

blonde to give a youthful, yet streetstyle feel to the red carpet.

The key to this style is the dry texture which was really prevalent

on the SS18 catwalks.

LEAH DURRANT: I love this look! Kate Hudson looks cool and

edgy with her blonde textured pixie cut, which is a very versatile

hairstyle and super on trend this year. Kate’s hair really is spot on,

as she has teamed her crop with texture to avoid it looking flat. Her

pixie cut was also paired with a side swept fringe that really brings

out her eyes and draws attention to her gorgeous face. With Kate’s

bold crop and pink gown with black hearts, her look was a real

head turner.

simple yet elegant she looks. A little sparkle under her eyes and a

slight shimmer of highlighter on Kate's cheekbones, would finish

this look off perfectly. Her hair is very on trend with a slight root

stretch and blonde ends but with a lilac hue under the light it would

look even more gorgeous and give a more modern feel to her

textured pixie cut.

spectacular. Her grown-out buzzcut is really beautiful and

feminine and is turning into a soft, pixie cut. Her 2017 buzzcut was

quite aggressive but it has grown into a statement haircut that

stands out from the crowd. It works perfectly with her face shape

and softens her jawline. It allows the frills on her collar to sit

perfectly as it is free from hair so there are no distractions.

“I always say ‘hair is like

a fabric’ and I

appreciate designing it

as an accessory to the

clothes,” says TIGI

European Session

Director, Maria Kovacs.

Cutting it on

Great looking hair

complementary to the

clothes may be a quiet

contributor to a

designer’s latest vibe

– but it’s an essential

element which helps

seal the deal of a collection’s

success. Many hairdressers love the

idea of working backstage for

runway shows, but it takes a special

type of person with particular skills

and characteristics to make it in the

fashion arena. Forging relationships

with designers, nurturing

connections and proving your

worth are essential in order to

become trusted to work on a new

collection, with the designer totally

confident the last model out looks

as good as the first.

As long-time Official Sponsors of

London Fashion Week,

TONI&GUY is an absolute

authority on catwalk

collaborations. The company’s

International Artistic Director and

Head of Education, Cos Stakkas,

says sometimes it takes just one

season to hit it off with a designer,

whereas it may take a couple of

seasons of collaboration with others

before they feel completely

comfortable with you as their ‘go to’.

“I also like to think we’re a first

choice because they’ve seen our

work from previous seasons and

know about our positive brand


Fabulous hair is the stylish accessory to every

designer’s newest collection. We dip into the jamboree

work with Pam Hogg, Henry

Holland, Paul Costelloe, Tata Naka

and Xiao Li among many others.

There’s a lot of communication in

the run-up to fashion week and it’s

the hair test day that really helps

build trust. “It’s a balance between

bringing to life the designer’s

desired look but also being honest

if you feel a style isn’t possible to

achieve. Providing honest feedback

quickly gains respect. If you’ve

worked with a designer for a few

seasons, everything comes together

quite quickly. If it’s a newer

relationship, you need to be more

flexible to accommodate the many

moving parts leading up to Fashion

Week,” says Cos.

But given catwalk hair has become

more relaxed and nonchalant of

late – how do you make it look

special and fresh to each designer?

“Paying attention to detail is key,

because with detail comes

originality,” explains Cos. “It

Forging a rapport

with the designer is

a basic requisite

doesn’t need to be outlandish to be

noticed. Media is so important for

the designer’s future sales, so the

hair needs to resonate with the

consumer. We don’t want to scare

them off.”

Seamless backstage work also

involves creating a harmonious

team. TONI&GUY chooses session

team members via an audition

process where stylists must

replicate five set looks that cover

various techniques. “This allows us

to assess each candidate on their

skill level as well as gauge how well

they work under pressure,” says

Cos. “To be a great catwalk

hairdresser you need to be trained

in all disciplines so you can create

anything that’s thrown at you, be

flexible and forward thinking.

Successful candidates are invited

back to a boot-camp for people to

meet each other and gel. It’s so

important for a team to work well

as a unit, that each member show

respect for the head of team’s lead,

one another’s skills and the

designer and models’ needs.”

Although full-on in his role as

Global Creative Director for Regis,

Kieron Fowles makes time to be

part of the backstage team for

many creative catwalk kings –

Guido Palau and Eugene

Soulieman included. Kieron got

hooked on fashion through his

earlier work with TONI&GUY and

he’s worked on many top shows

including Victoria Beckham,

Alexander Wang, Preen and

Yohji Yamamoto.

But earning your stripes and being

and asked to work backstage

doesn’t come easy. “You have to

earn your place, it’s a bit like being

“Work-wise I wouldn’t go

anywhere without my ghd

gold styler and ghd root

lift spray – I use it as a

base for everything,”

says Zoe Irwin.

Seamless backstage

work means creating

a harmonious team

back in the salon,” says Kieron.

“So leave any ego at the door and

accept being a dogsbody for quite a

while, doing lots of lowly tasks, just

get on with what you’re asked to do

and be the perfect assistant until

you’re trusted to slowly take on

more responsibility. While working

your way up, you have good and

bad days and take some knocks,

but you must keep going.

“Watch and study those in charge,

learn all the techniques – such as

braiding, hair up, natural-looking

hair – which looks so easy but is

actually very hard to get right.

And practice, practice, practice.

Understand trends and shoot some

of your own work to create a

portfolio so you have some visual

references. You’ll need this to prove

your capability to others when they

ask to see your work,” says Kieron.

“I love working backstage and

aspire to one day be like a Guido or

Eugene and head my own team.”

After a few years’ break, it was the

Lulu Guinness LFW show which

encouraged Zoe Irwin to return

backstage. “I’m such a Lulu

Guinness fan, I jumped at the

chance,” says Zoe, ghd’s UK

Ambassador. “She’s a woman I

admire hugely; I’ve brought the

bags, read her interviews and it’s

great to be part of the all-female

team on this show. It’s a new

collaboration and it’s so important I

have someone on my team I’ve

worked with for a long time, trust

implicitly, is calm and totally on the

ball. Kelly is my right-hand girl for

this show, she’s doing the hair test

with me and is my second pair of

eyes to ensure all looks align on the

day,” says Zoe.

“When creating the hair, including

a different element makes it look

fresh. Something like a new take on

a braid or twisting up the hair in a

different way, playing with texture

and combining two things that

wouldn’t normally go together. It’s

so important to play with new ideas

which help to get hair noticed by

the beauty directors – it all leads to

more media coverage. It doesn’t

have to be the big idea, just a little

nuance; think like a beauty

director, what would they pick up

for their readers? Looking at the

hair through their eyes really helps

bring about a fresh feel.

“Work-wise I wouldn’t go

anywhere without my ghd gold

styler and ghd root lift spray – I use

it as a base for everything,” says

Zoe. “Great elastic is also essential

Fudge Professional has a long

history of working with up-and

coming-designers and this year,

Brand Collaborator Sid Sottung

worked with the Fudge Professional

team for the AW18 Liam Hodges

and Christopher Raeburn shows –

one of Sid’s personal favourites. “To

ensure a designer totally trusts your

ability and is happy to leave you to

it, gaining trust needs to happen

from the beginning, with plenty of

communication, shared mood

boards and a practice run before

show day itself,” says Sid.

“Starting work with a designer can

be anything from six months to six

weeks. Each is different and you

need to roll with whatever time’s

available. There can be several or

very few meetings between various

members of the design team and

makeup artists. Drawings always

help initially, after which mood

boards are normally compiled for

the final team meet to help finalise

the look. Understanding designer’s

original creative vision for the

collection is an essential starting

block to enable the hairstylist to fall

into the same mindset and work

compatibly. Clothing is the main

focus, but harmonious hair helps to

convey the designer’s vision more

effectively. “To bring that vision to

life, it’s imperative backstage team

members are skilled all-rounders in

all hairdressing, barbering and

editorial techniques. It’s such a

fast-paced and intimate

environment, each of you really

feels it when someone isn’t quite up

to the task,” says Sid. “Surrounding

yourself with individuals who can

support and help one another is a

must. As is being equipped with a

100ml travel-size Skyscraper

hairspray – a godsend as it fits so

easily in my pocket – and Fudge’s

Vinyl Pomade as it’s great for

achieving insane shine on men and

women. I can’t live without them!”

It’s clear that getting your head

around a designer’s vision is critical

in order to design the right

complementary hair. And as that

vision often reflects the defining

spirit of the time, keeping your

finger on the zeitgeist is a must.

TIGI European Session Director,

Maria Kovacs, stays on point by

constantly researching ‘the now’.

“I run a Session Course in London

and Milan and my delivered

information is also used at our

Academy in New York. I also do

trend presentations and create a

so I’m constantly researching this,”

explains Maria. “It’s not always easy

to be original, but small things can

make a simple style stand out. I

always say ‘hair is like a fabric’ and

I appreciate designing it as an

accessory to the clothes. We’ve

worked with Mark Fast for several

seasons now and our relationship

has developed to the point he’s

agreed to filmed interviews with

me so we could use them for TIGI

in December, this been such a

great journey for me,” commented

Maria. “I would recommend that

everyone enter the Mixology

Master Competition, because it

provides a priceless creative

opportunity to do what we all

love.” Working closely with Marco

Antonio Restrepo, Jorge Cáncer

and Kasper Thomas from

X-presion Hair, it was inevitable

that Maria pick up some

inspirational new colouring

techniques - the boys certainly

didn’t disappoint! The objective

for the new campaign was to

achieve a very rich collection

going from a commercial and

elegant style through to a more

editorial finish, playing with

colours, shapes and textures.

“The actual colouring is based on

our Disruptive X-presion

technique that is an evolution of

the pixel we created a few years

ago,” explains Jorge. “We created a

3D effect that is even cooler to see

live than in the pictures! It is

important that it not be a colour

on the surface of the hair, but

rather a colour that changes with

every movement of the hair.

When you learn the technique,

you can then adapt it to be super

commercial and introduce your

own interpretation in the salon.”

There to ensure that the final

looks conformed to the Fudge

brief was Tracy Hayes, whose

encyclopaedic knowledge and

experience of all things hairrelated

made her the main

protagonist in ensuring that the

final collection turned out to be so

exceptionally beautiful: “It was

essential that we created

commercially-attractive looks that

would appeal to our salons and

clients globally, whilst still taking

their breath away with the skill

and impressive techniques used in

each look,” explains Tracy. “We

also made sure to represent the

full Fudge Professional colour

palette on different hair lengths,

so that no matter what the client’s

hair colour or style might be, this

collection will have something to

really inspire everyone,” adds

Emma Bate, Fudge Professional

Brand Manager.

Takara Belmont has

perfected the art of

timeless style through

almost a century.

Takara Belmont

is global presence

that draws on interior

and equipment design

influences to shape

new salon ideas.

tradition for quality, expertise

and design has resulted in a

salon proposition that goes

beyond everything that

meets the eye. Many of

Takara Belmont's chair

and equipment

designs have spanned the decades

to remain contemporary,

despite ever-changing interior

design trends and styles.

Their introduction of new

products and technologies and

expansion into reception and

styling stations remains true to

their hair heritage whilst satisfying

every equipment requirement.



Takara Belmont has earned a

reputation for world-class

equipment and every offering is

stress-tested to ensure stringent

quality standards are met.

“We are uncompromising when it

comes to quality,” says Katie

Wrighton, Territory Sales Manager.

“As a global business with 100

offices worldwide, our reputation

for unrivalled manufacturing

quality, product performance and

durability are values we uphold in

every product.” The company,

formed in Japan in 1921, has many

products in its portfolio that have

changed very little visually.

The Adria II styling chair, for

example, was created in 1971

and remains its most popular

hairdressing chair, whilst advances

in technology and manufacturing

have yielded subtle changes that

enhance its appeal without

tampering with the features that

brought it global success. “We have

built on the strengths of Adria and

then enhanced, improved and

evolved it,” explains Katie Wrighton.

“This includes the introduction of

the RS Adria II shampoo system

where we have moved the Adria II

concept to the backwash. This enables

salons to coordinate equipment

throughout the salon journey.”



With the launch of their first ever

barber char in 1940, the no. 130

marked the beginning of an era as

Takara Belmont became a global

success and a must have for the

heart of every interior. Dominating

the industry, 2011 marked a year for

innovation with the introduction

of add on services that provided an

almost seamless segue into the

world of luxury and VIP treatments.

Peerless when it comes to the

application of motorised technology,

the Rollerball F processor brought

groundbreaking colour processing

innovation to the world of

hairdressing. Using infrared

technology to power its distinctive

rotating ring, Rollerball F reinvented

colour processing time and

intensifying colour results. It has

become yet another global success

story for Takara Belmont. Katie

Wrighton says, ‘Rollerball F set the

benchmark for colour processing

technology and we’ve expanded

further with the MicroMist and Spa

Mist ll processors. Revolutionising

the application of motorised

technology, the Yume DX shampoo

and treatment system redefined the

backwash whilst allowing for the

addition of new service options and

revenue streams. This indulgently

cushioned couch offered clients a

new spa-style standard at the

backwash. It also provided a focal

point for VIP services, such as

facials and massage that gave salons

the opportunity to up-sell.

“Salons could now offer premier

treatments and introduce other

services to boost the customer

experience and revenues.

And, when paired with Spa Mist

II, the experience is elevated to

new heights. Not only does this

combination create ambience,

it uplifts the customers’ sense of

relaxation and improves service

outcomes. Spa Mist II also gives

the versatility to introduce spa-style

treatments such as hand and nail

conditioning treatments.”

As an evolution to the Yume

concept, space challenged salons

gravitate to the more recent Yume

Espoir. This brings Yume luxury

in a more space-saving package

without compromise.


Takara Belmont recognises there

has to be a commercial imperative.

It stakes its reputation on quality,

of course, but also on helping

salon owners become successful

businesses too. Evidence of this

approach rests in its Salon Design

Service. Katie Wrighton: “Most

owners have a vision, and idea or

a concept for their salon. It’s a very

individual, personal thing too.

We promote the idea of working

together in partnership with salon

owners to bring their vision to life.

But this goes beyond design.

We incorporate service offerings

into their plans and look at how to

maximise commercial performance

through smart equipment choices.

We then create 2D and then 3D

renders, from which the salon can

work with architects and builders

to bring their idea to fruition.

It’s all part of a turnkey solution to

support customers from concept

to completion.” Equipment is more

than choosing chairs, equipment

or accessories. It’s recognising

the long-term effects of making

the right equipment decisions,

appreciating the positive affect

they have on the customer

experience and salon incomes,

and appreciating that equipment

is an investment that pays

dividends when approached in

the right way. So, with a global

presence that draws on interior

and equipment design influences

to shape new salon ideas and a

partnership-based service approach

designed to help you on the road to

success, perhaps it’s time to consider

your next equipment decision?

The company, formed

in Japan in 1921, has

many products in its

portfolio that over

the years have changed

very little visually.

A global reputation

unrivalled for quality

and performance

More and more

salons are rewarding

the achievements of

their staff at awards

nights and parties

- and the benefits are

proving to be huge

and numerous!

The positive sense of

empathy and togetherness

that comes from spending

an evening of celebration

with your colleagues is

incalculable. Whether

we’re talking about a

single, privately run salon or a huge

franchise with dozens of salons

across the country, an occasion

dedicated to celebrating your

success can do more to build

team-spirit that just about anything

else; by the end of the night, the

feel-good factor will have gone into

overdrive! There are no set rules as

to what format your celebration

should take - the event can range

from an in-salon drinks party up to

a sophisticated awards ceremony

with drinks reception, four-course

dinner and fully choreographed

stage spectacular - the important

things is that the salon team enjoy

themselves at the same time as

feeling a collective pride in all they

have achieved together. We are

showcasing three salon groups -

Headmasters, Saks and RUSH -

who, during the past couple of

months, have reaped their own

rewards through recognising the

commitment, loyalty and

dedication of their staff at a special

awards night.



The Headmasters Awards recently

took place at Battersea Evolution

and were attended by over 1,000 of

team members.The event was

Après Ski themed and the

ceremony hosted by reality

television personality and barber

by trade, Kem Cetinay.

expansion plans for 2018. The

audience was also treated to a high

energy, interactive stage show. by

the Headmasters Pro Artistic Team.

The group divides its awards into

two very distinctive groups - The

Business and Management Awards,

where salons were judged on their

in-salon performance, and the

Creative Photographic Awards,

where individual team members

are invited to show off their creative

skills and enter one of five

categories: The Ultimate Image

Award, Mens Image Award,

Christine Sanders Future Star

Award, ghd Avant Garde Award

and Colour Innovation Award.

Headmasters invites well-known

industry figures to independently

judge the entrants for each

category. This year they included

renowned barber Kevin Luchmun,

Katie Allan, Creative Director at

Charles Worthington Karine

Jackson, President of The

Fellowship For British

Hairdressing, and Darren Oram,

Creating a salon as ecological as

it is serviceable and fashionable

may sound problematic. But in

an increasingly eco-aware world,

modernising the salon experience

is fast becoming a necessary

way forward. Maria Weijers

90 dossier

As huge consumers of water,

power and chemicals, hair

salons are, by nature,

challenging to make

eco-friendly. Traditional

colourants and

many shampoos

contain synthetic chemicals

which, once they’ve served their

purpose, are washed down the

drain at the backwash and

liberated to accumulate in

waterways and soils, eventually

finding their way into seas and

oceans. Although there isn’t an

industry-wide, coordinated effort

to ‘green up’ our industry,

eco-friendly salons are popping

Blue Tit uses recycled

materials when creating its

salons, such as in Brixton,

where workstations are crafted

from upcycled heavy

industrial metal.

Blue Tit Salons

Make use of any natural light

to improve the salon ambience

and to help with electricity bills

up across the country, with

businesses upping their eco-game

by paying attention to sustainably

designing interiors, reducing

water and electricity use, recycling

waste and choosing to use and

retail ‘clean, green’ products.

Long-time advocate of organic

colouring and hairdressing

services, Karine Jackson, (whose

London salon offers vegan hair

services) is a go-to venue for

ethical values without compromising

on performance or trend. Certified

as London’s first Sustainable Salon

through an initiative from the

University of Southampton,

Karine is massively supportive of

other salons becoming sustainable.

University of Southampton

researchers found hair care to be

very energy intensive, yet being

just a bit more eco conscious

yields positive impact on the

planet and bills. Simply adjusting

the habit of washing and double

rinsing daily to washing and single

rinsing every other day can see the

resulting carbon footprint go

down 2000 percent.

Eco technologies advocated by the

University study include using a

Scirocco Smooth (nicknamed a

hair hoover) which removes excess

water from hair after shampooing,

avoiding the need for towel

drying. And Curlformers, a

heat-free curling tool to create

temporary or permanent curls (for

setting or perming) with brilliant

staying power. Available in

different lengths, shapes and

directional functions, this versatile

tool enables you to curl to the left

or to the right.

To begin your eco journey, visiting

Southampton University’s website is a

good place to start. It has a course

which guides you through a

virtual salon experience showing

you where you can be ecofriendlier

and save your salon

money. “You may find you’re

doing some of it already with eco

bulbs, eco showerheads, disposable

towels and recycling,” says

Karine. “But it also has some really

valuable top tips and academic

papers to make you think.”

“Practical things you can implement

immediately include never

leaving the tap running while

shampooing and ensure you assess

your client’s needs, don't shampoo

twice just for the sake of it. Use

eco towels which save on water for

washing and electricity for drying.

And look at what plastic you’re

using; we’re eliminating the plastic

water dispenser and installing a

water filter onto our kitchen tap to

fill glass bottles to serve our clients

drinking water. Make sure any

plastic you are using is recycled

and question the brands you use

– do they need all that plastic


“Don’t mix up too much colour;

your team will understand why if

you show them. It’s a bit messy,

but we spent a week putting

leftover mixed-up colour into a

bucket and we were totally

shocked at how much gets thrown

away. We now mix more wisely,

noting how much colour is needed

for each client.

Change to eco light bulbs, make waste, and works with an ecobrand

committed to sustainability.

Ensuring your salon design is

time-proof by buying items made

to last or using pre-loved classics is

a great way to avoid waste creation

and embrace chic re-purposing.

The newly-opened Matthew Curtis

salon in Chipping Norton is a fine

example of these principles. Judy

Reaves, founder of Judy Reaves

Design and Matthew Curtis brand

collaborator, explains.

“I’ve worked with Matthew on the

design of all his salons and we

always try to be as eco-conscious as

possible. The Chipping Norton

premise is a listed building and

when stripping back walls to the

original Cotswold stone, we

discovered a fireplace and old

panelling from when the building

was a coaching inn earlier. We

reinstated both to create a central

feature and a ‘sustainable talking


“We restored original floorboards

using ‘hard wax oil’ (natural vegetable

oils and waxes) which brilliantly

restores floorboards by bringing

out the depth of the wood, and it’s

ecologically sound as it has no toxic

emissions. Mylands-brand marble

emulsion on the walls is also

environmentally friendly – a

natural, hard-wearing water-based

paint, low in volatile organic

content (VOC) so low toxic


Rather than buying new, original

vintage items for both practical use

and design aesthetics were sourced

from local shops and antiques

centres and each tells a story.

Barstools, clocks, tables, a cloakroom

vanity stand adapted from an

old chest of drawers and a quirky a

cocktail bar sourced from eBay:

this upcycle serves as the reception

desk, disguising the computer

monitor and housing a product

display. Plastics were avoided

wherever possible. “For example,

instead of plastic trollies the team

use brass and glass drinks trollies.

And in place of plastic boxes for

pins and grips etc., we’ve used a

mixture glass and brass trinket

boxes – now treasured and recycled

rather than ending up in landfill,”

explains Judy.

“To avoid building a new wall

between the backwash and styling

areas, we created a brass room

divider with shelving, fashioned

using odd parts bought from an

original engineering company in

Birmingham and glass from a

local glazier. To avoid a high

carbon footprint, salon styling

chairs were made locally in

Stratford-upon-Avon and upholstered

in fabric sourced in

Gloucestershire. Using individual

trades and designing bespoke

rather than going to a one-stop

shop for everything was more

demanding administratively, but

the reward of creating a lovely

sense of community while caring

for the environment is priceless,”

Judy comments.

So, think about initiating your

own rewarding green conversion.

The web offers lots of help and

advice and eco-conscious product

suppliers are usually happy to

help. From Alter Ego to Insight,

Davines to Oway and many

in-between, the granddaddy of

them all has to be Aveda. In

addition to operating some 200 of

its own spas, Aveda supplies

natural-based hair personal care

products to tens of thousands of

salons and spas in almost 30

countries – clearly a company well

versed in green issues. Once you

get into the swing of it – creating a

green culture and promoting

sustainability to yield a richer,

cleaner, safer, wider world –

becomes a joy.



1. Segregate clean recycling materials from general waste,

including contaminated packaging, gloves and specialist


2. Responsibly dispose of all paper, plastic, glass, aluminium,

cardboard, batteries and waste electrical goods.

3. Recycle aluminium foils and colour tubes – both are deemed

harmful to the environment.

4. Hair cuttings can be used as biodegradable waste, including

being spread as compost on farmers’ fields

5. Align yourself with a product manufacturer who you can work

alongside. If you choose a product partner with a sustainable

approach, they will have clear guidelines and ideas that

can assist you in your quest.

6. Chose suppliers providing eco-friendly products and

materials, from shampoos and colourants to biodegradable

towels and capes.

7. Buying items made to last is one of the simplest ways of

cutting down on waste and saving the energy required to

dispose of them.

8. Where possible, recycle everything used in the salon. Equip

your salon with recycling bins for paper, plastics, glass,

hair-colour tubes, foils and meches.

9. Instead of standard lightbulbs choose LEDs which reduce

electricity bills and your impact on the environment, too.

10.It goes without saying: turn off lights and heated appliances

when not in use!

Influenced by the balance created

between raw and refinement,

element∆l is Goldwell’s Color Zoom

’18 Collection: minimalistic, yet

intuitive and stylishly sophisticated.

The nuances of

colour vary from

light to dark,

or from subtle

to more intense.

The Color Zoom

Collection 2018

represents creativity

in its purest form,

driven by this season's

fashion trends.

The Color Zoom ’18

Creative Team has created the

’18 Collection, element∆l,

characterised by an interplay

of rawness and refinement while

solidity merges with translucency.

Tone-on-tone colours play

with contrasts and modern

minimalistic shapes bring a

rough, primal edge. Along with

airy handcrafted shapes that

express future-forward styling.

Elemental COLOUR

Muted pastels and rich earthy

tones overlap and filter one

another, creating a sense of

translucency – one of the

colour techniques employed

in the Collection.

A weathered patina forms a shiny,

but also muted, shimmer in

which the tones are matte and

unpolished yet display a luminous

surface. Moving beyond metallic

into pure mineral tones, they

reveal a variety of harmonious

mineral shades. “The colour has

a translucent feel, creating an

interplay of colour layering and

filterning,” comments Larissa

Bresnehan, Global Winner

Creative Category 2016, Australia.

“The muted pastels and rich

earthy tones overlap each other

to stunning effect.”

Elemental SHAPE

The inspiration comes from a

minimalistic approach conveying

sophistication with a sense of

the elemental. The key element

for a precise but intuitive look is

a primal foundation created by

soft and jagged edges. The look

is completed by handcrafted

shapes that are subtly asymmetric

with unexpected irregularities.

“Simplicity prevails over highly

refined styles,” says Sargis

Airapetian, Global Winner New

Talent Category 2016, Russia.

“We took the simplicity of shapes

and moved them on to a new,

future-forward level - irregular,

but subtly asymmetric.”

Elemental TEXTURE

The Collection is influenced by

the balance created between raw

and renewed elements. The styles

evoke a self-made sensation

but are still the result of skillful

texturing. Airiness flows into

the styling, lending it a futureforward

look. “The infusion

of airiness creates a free-form

texture” explains Daniel Rubin,

self-made feeling is created by

Dyson's portfolio of household and

industrial equipment has grown

to include the chordless cleaner,

the robot cleaner, the airblade hand


dryer, lighting systems, cooling

fans and fan heaters, humidifiers,

purifiers and (this is where we come

in!) the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer.

With goods exported from the UK

to 75 markets around the world,

it's impossible to look at the Dyson

brand in any depth without

discussing numbers: Dyson is a

family company with more than

9,000 employees worldwide; in 2016

it had a turnover of over 3 billion

dollars and sold 13 million units

globally, archiving growth of over

25% per year. By 2020, more than

12,000 employees are projected

to be working for the company

and its turnover is expected to top

$7 billion. Also, Dyson recently

inaugurated its Technology Centre

in Singapore and has announced the

acquisition of the Hullavington

airfield to build a second technology

campus, increasing the impact of

Dyson in the United Kingdom by

ten fold. This new campus will allow

Dyson to continue to create highly

skilled jobs, attracting the brightest

minds from around the world.

revealed the secrets behind the

102 innovation

Dyson Supersonic, the hairdryer

which has quickly achieved cult

status by hair professionals and

clients alike. Dyson engineers -

no fewer than 103 working on this

project alone - analysed the

structure of the hair shaft from root

to tip in order to understand how it

reacts under sources of stress and to

understand how to keep it healthy

and conditioned. Over a period four

years they tested their prototypes

- around 600 in all - on all different

types of hair, to mechanically

simulate drying techniques, some

of which may vary from country to

country. If you laid the hair strands

so far tested end-to-end they would

reach the phenomenal length of

1,625 kilometres! Dyson has also

invested many millions of pounds in

research on the science of hair and

on problems related to traditional

appliances, with the aim of

developing an optimised concept:

the hairdryer handle rather than the

head. The result is a perfectly

balanced, incredibly silent device -

the Dyson engineers have actually

managed to apply the science of

sound to the engine, bringing it up

to an acoustic frequency that is

higher than the range that can be

heard by the human ear! Hairstylists

who have already used the

Supersonic backstage at some of the

most prestigious fashion shows on

the planet particularly appreciate

Dyson's patented Air Multiplier

technology. Thanks to this

technology, the volume of air sucked

into the engine is tripled, producing

a high pressure and high speed jet.

A targeted air jet, at an angle of 20°

provides a perfectly controlled

and accurate handling technique,

making it possible to both dry and

style the hair in one simple step.
