Celebrity Hair Crush

September 26, 2018

Years ago, I remember being absolutely obliterated when Brad Pitt bleached his hair for the film “Seven Years in Tibet.” Friends were witness to his arrival on stage at the TIFF premiere at Roy Thomson Hall 1997 and claimed that silence was followed by an audible gasp, as he moved like a god among mortals. …

Fave Red Carpet Hair 2018

September 21, 2018

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…

Fave Animal Fur

August 16, 2018

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…

worldCITIZEN

July 10, 2018

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…

WORLD Hair Skin Formulas (cocktails)

June 11, 2018

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…

FAQ

 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…

Mane Envy

March 5, 2018

Ever since I was old enough to notice, I have always admired full heads of hair, gleaming, bouncing, cascading in the sunshine, blowing in the wind.   Hair seemed to me almost a magical appendage that had an incredible allure.  I was fascinated with my sister’s Barbies, tilting them to and fro, watching the movement of…

Earth Month

March 1, 2018

photo: nico@stagias.com I was talking with a client recently at worldSALON about how environmental issues seem to be falling off people’s radar.  Alan explained that as an interior designer, most of his clients previously would start the discussion of designing their new spaces with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for their interiors. …

Fave Hair Decade

February 12, 2018

This is a tough one, because I love the polished helmets of the 1950’s for their precision and architectural beauty:  While nice to look at, you know there was a toxic cloud of elements not known to man hovering around that head, and if you touched it, your fingers might break.  In the 1960’s, we…

Coming in 2018

January 18, 2018

A spanking new year has begun and as hunched and cranky people seem to be in this coldest January ever, I am filled with a sense of optimism, a more defined purpose and a tinkling anticipation of what the year ahead will hold.  The plenary sessions so far have been instructive – “hope” has been…
