Men's Hair 2008

Ann Demeulemeester
What was the inspiration for your A/W 08 menswear collection?
The song "Knockin' on Heavens Door" by Bob Dylan was in my mind and influenced the spirit of the collection. I was struck by its power and its simplicity. As an anti-war song it had something we need now. People are afraid of the situation in the world today, and that shows in various ways, even the way they dress. Fear kills all beauty, all creativity and all positive vibes that we need to live and to work. Therefore positive vibes are what I wanted to offer, with the power of the flowers taken from my own garden.

Shampoo Sulfates

Sulfates or Sulfate Free
There has been a lot of controversy over sulfates in shampoo. Hair care companies are making shampoo without sulfates. .
Some people like how their hair feels when they use a sulfate free shampoo.
Lately I have been seeing clients who have been or are using sulfate free shampoo.
Some clients are experiencing hair loss due to a build up on their scalp. Others have dull hair that seems to look tired and coated. Still others have very dry hair and hair breakage. The only thing they are doing different in their hair care is shampoo.
Certainly hair loss and breakage can result no matter what you are using.
If shampoo with or without sulfates work for you then by all means use whatever you like.
Personally I like the suds from sulfates. They make my baby fine oily hair feel clean and full of body. I also like the natural ingredients in my shampoo such as aloe, calendula, chamomile, golden seal, henna, cherry bark and the list goes on.
I like a balance. It is important for me to get my hair clean and have it shine.

Salon Etiquette Update

Helpful Hints
I came across an article today on salon etiquette. I thought It would be a good idea to pass some of it along.
Please turn off your cell phone in the salon. It is very hard for your stylist to give you a good cut when you are leaning and talking on the phone.
If you bring your children, please keep them off of the equipment. Styling chairs are not carnival rides. Spinning and jumping in them can make them off balance. Your child could get injured. Please keep them from running and screaming.
Don’t be afraid to ask the price. If you decide to add a service when you arrive ask how much.
If you do not like your service or would like something changed, ask in a courteous manner. If you complain do it politely. Your stylist wants you to be happy.
Tipping is generally fifteen to twenty percent of the service. It is now customary to tip the owner. Shampoo assistants 2-3 dollars. If you pay with a credit card tip in cash.

I hope this helps. Please write me if you need help.
