causin havoc in HELL

I have already mentioned the amazing hairdresser Didier Malige before in a previous post titled New York I love you, but you're bringing me down. For his work for New York Fashion week. But did you know he has a book? Here's the scoop.

Didier Malige was inspired as a boy to become a hairstylist by grooming the cats and dogs at his mother's veterinary clinic. In the mid 60s he joined Carita as an apprentice, at the time Paris' trend setting salon. He then left to collaborate with Jean Louis David styling hair on fashion shoots. Working alongside several renowned fashion photographers influenced him to photograph his own growing family of cats.

All hail the carrot top!

I’m seeing red all over. No seriously, redheads are popping up all over the place, from Julianne Moore in the movie Short Cuts, here in the blog-o-sphere and in magazines Karen Elson, Lily Cole et al, and even in my day-to-day salon life. And let me tell you red works very well on editorials. Consider this, on film, what the eye sees on a brunette is mostly the outline or the silhouette, and with blondes the eye sees the details or the strands. With red hair you get both. Combine that with milky alabaster skin and bam! Killer looks.

So looks like my girlfriend/muse will be getting a new hue before the decade ends.

Okay so it’s that time of year again when men of a certain age walk around with questionable facial hair. That being Movember.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock Movember is an annual month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November. The event has been claimed to have been invented in 1999 by group of Australian men from Adelaide.

Since 2004, the Movember Foundation charity has run Movember events to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and depression in Australia and in New Zealand. In 2007, events were launched in Ireland, Canada, Spain, the U.K and the U.S.

Cyril R Salter Professional Moustache Wax

Provided in a pocketable, matte-finish glass jar, this neutral-coloured wax has one thing going for it: a sublime vanilla aroma. Lacking the rigidity to last all day, it’s best for emergency touch-up usage, because it’s less messy than Pinaud or Taylor’s. Just rub some on your finger, and apply to the ends.

Just a quick post today.
Here's a sneak peak at the hair direction for Maryon.
I've been ill for the last couple of days and my girlfriend is hogging the computer so I haven't had time for any new posts. Not to worry, all that will change in the next few days.
