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…

#ICYMI 2017

December 4, 2017

This past year was most definitely a year of change, culminating in a terrible new reality south of the border, where a narcissistic, psychopath became the leader of the most powerful nation on the planet.  In Chinese astrology, we are moving from the flamboyant, flirtatious “Fire Rooster” in 2017 to the diligent, dependable “Earth Dog”…

Party Hair

October 1, 2017

Once again, we are heading into party season and this year, really anything goes.  Messy, tousled waves look amazing with a snug, sparkly gown, heels and great earrings.  A clean, tight ponytail will dazzle with a sharp suit or boxy, geometric dress.  Scrape your short hair back with PROTECT leave in conditioner and freeze into…


October 1, 2017

When I tell people that October 6th, 2017 is the 28th anniversary of worldSALON at the corner of Jarvis and Adelaide, St. Lawrence Market District, Toronto, Canada, it seems impossible!  At a bbq party a few summers ago at friends Mark and Peggi’s, a bunch of us were discussing our spiritual ages, and mine is a…

Show and Tell

August 27, 2017

The Miriam Webster dictionary defines “show and tell” as “a classroom exercise in which children display an item and talk about it,”  or a “public display or demonstration.” In the beauty industry, understanding and executing the concept of “show and tell”  is potentially the most significant attribute of a successful beauty professional.  In my training…

Bleach is a blast, like being at a beach party every day, even when the weather sucks.  It facilitates a 24/7 personal spotlight shining down on your head to light up your face and give you an otherworldly glow, without the sun damage.  Your skin looks younger and tanned, your clothes look more interesting, it instantly…

Summer Hair – Tips For Great Vacations

June 27, 2017

Summer is upon us once again – definitely the most glorious time of the year!  The sun-kissed skin, the toned bodies finally unleashed after months in the gym, the moist air, rife with photosynthesized oxygen and hair that is wavy and wild.  For vacations, we all know that how your hair looks is the most…

Myles Sexton wearing Izzy Camilieri #DTWL2017 “Dare to Wear Love” is a benefit fashion show for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which raises funds for Aids causes and LGBTQ groups in Sub Saharan Africa.  The show is the brainchild of my dear friends Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of Hoax Couture.  The couple travelled to Africa…

Hair in the Wind

May 2, 2017

It is perhaps Barbie that is responsible for my wonderful career in hair!  After she arrived in our home, at my sister’s bequest, I was forever entranced by this incredible material that shimmered and flowed and shook so magically.  It really was about how it moved, and wind, although damaging, can make hair look incredible,…

Runway Hair

April 10, 2017

While I have sincerely loved everything that Alexander McQueen had carefully curated in his short career, I must say that one of my favourite hair moments on the runway has to be Ric Owens Womens SS13, which he called “Island”.   Luigi Murena, hairstylist lead on the show, created some incredible wigs that were so…
