I feel like an imposter how can thirty years have passed?

Alas another awards season has come and gone and now we wait patiently for the film festival circuit to begin to get our second dose of glamouritis! I missed the Oscars once again due to no cable, so I suffered through a delayed feed on Twitter until I got bored and went to bed.  The…

This month we decided to create some fun new updo videos to entertain and inspire.  Throwing your hair up in a creative way can be a great thing to practice for special events or on day three or four when you don’t feel like washing.  The right tools and products are key.  I love non-stick…

Happy 2019 to you all! This coming year proves to be a momentous one – worldSALON turns thirty on October 9th and this sends me into paroxysms of joy, disbelief and terror!  Am I really that old?  I have a crystal clear, internal slideshow of so many moments the salon was first opened it seems…

Well another awards season has come to an end and it was a tough slog to find something I was really thrilled about.  I did think Jennifer Lawrence looked great at the Oscars with her messy unpretentious waves in that Dior sequin liquid mercury dress that she somehow poured herself into. I found most of…

One of the more interesting jobs I have had was to re-create the last six inches of “Diva The Cat”‘s  tail that was to be chopped off in an episode of the CBS horror show “American Gothic”. The props master sent me many photos of Diva and two tails to work with – which really…

This month we all wanted to showcase a spectacular client that really makes our jobs a total joy.  For my first worldCITIZEN, I would like to introduce you to Franca Policaro.  Franca has been a client since the beginning of worldSALON; in fact she and her husband Tony became clients  when I started working at…

One of the most enjoyable parts of working with a clean product line like WORLD Hair and Skin (world.ca) is that no matter where the product ends up, you know that it is not harming you.   One discovers new textures, feelings and effects with layering and combining these fun, easy to progressive products. After a…

 Why is the salon named WORLD?   In 1976, David Bowie starred in a Nicolas Roeg film titled “The Man Who Fell To Earth”.  Bowie plays an alien who comes to earth in search of water because his planet is drying up.  The technology on his planet is vastly superior to ours, so with devices he…
