#ICYMI

December 6, 2016

I am writing this basking in the happy glow of our newly erected Christmas tree, new Noma projector outdoor lights tinkling on the surface of our renovated house and Eartha Kitt beckoning her “Santa cutie” on the boombox.  2016 whipped past “like a speeding, smoky shadow” – is it true time goes faster with age?…

Hair Movie – The Draughtsman’s Contract

November 15, 2016

1983’s The Draughtman’s Contract by Peter Greenaway has to be one of my favourite films for hair design.  First and foremost, no other movie in history has had the follicular poundage.  Men, even children have gigantic manes, triple the size of their heads, curled and coiffed into architectural structures and the women, many with headdresses,…

Fave Halloween Wigs

October 15, 2016

Well this is a tough one, because there have been so many!  Halloween has always been a special time for a few reasons; it is an opportunity to be creative, mess people up and make them laugh.  In my thirties, after having a dream in which I was tricked by a goul (long story), I…

First Hair Memories

September 5, 2016

My first hair memory occurred shortly after my sister Donna and I moved to London, England from Georgetown, Guyana.  My parents went ahead of us, spending sixteen months readying our home in south London and settling into their respective jobs.  Donna and I lived with our grandparents, uncles and aunts during that period in a…

Summer of Brunette

August 3, 2016

If you are interested in having a brunette summer, you can’t go wrong with the warm, sexy, reddish brown tones of  Megan Fox’s hair.  She is a truly iconic brunette.  The darker tones of her hair, frame her face perfectly and add a wonderful contrast to her skin and eyes.  I fell in love with…

Summer Of Blonde

July 5, 2016

I have often said to clients that we all must go blonde at least once in our lives. When my hair was short, I would often get bored with myself and bleaching my hair out became an easy diversion. Luckily my scalp is as tough as a rhino’s butt, so I could bleach my hair…

Summer Red

May 31, 2016

The violent storm that washes away pain A brittle chirping echoes off walls of fresh green Demanding notice and pulling your attention Back in to that place of solitude and peace.   Only weeks ago our shoulders shrugged In that involuntary reaction to winter’s frosty exhale A cold grey blanket wrapping all but eyes Until…

May Grey

April 29, 2016

Too many times, I have heard older clients say “Am I too old for all this hair?”  or “aren’t you suppose to cut your hair short at a certain age?” Going grey can be a deleterious process, but once the decision has been made and the silver becomes more prominent, I think nothing is further…

Book Club

March 17, 2016

I read lots of environmental titles.  In the past few years, some of my favourites have been The World Without Us by Alan Weisman, The Geography of Hope by Chris Turner, and Waking The Frog by my friend and fearless climate change advocate Tom Rand.  Also, Adria Vasil’s Echolic Body and Echoholic Home are essential…

Winter Blues

February 16, 2016

Delicious winter. I ride my bike to and from work most days, unless the roads are icy or slick, which this year has not been often.   That biting wind on the face, the impossibly blue skies, bundles of warm Zam Barrett and LOID sustainably made clothing to layer, white-hot sunshine in the salon I…
