can you keep a secret?

sshh 2015 was incredible. From shows to master classes and workshops, #sshh2015 showcased the best of the industry. The world's biggest educational program for the hair industry definitely did not disappoint, delivering exceptional skills and showcasing the latest trends from hairdressers around the world. The three-day event allowed artists to share their techniques and industry knowledge with other like-minded individuals. Benni was recently quoted in The Journal saying, "we have to constantly challenge ourselves - to do more, to do better and to be hungry for more." •


jules named 'best new talent'

The digital world has acknowledged our very own Jules Tognini for his quirky 'How To' video series on men's grooming. Last month, the Men's Hairdresser of the Year' won 'Best New Talent' at the National Online Video Awards. Jules' mate, Matty from Projucer, who worked on the 'How To' series, said they have been using the word 'edu-tainment' a lot to answer the question of how to mesh entertainment and education in online videos 24/7. Check out all of Jules' videos at his Youtube channel. •

hair trends 2016

Trendsetter Jules Tognini, sat down with The Glow this month to share his hair predictions for 2016. The days of long bobs, balayage and long hair are over with shorter tighter bobs, voluminous length and freehand colouring techniques leading the way into 2016. Jules said the trick to a good haircut is following the lines of a person's natural face shape. Check out the story here. •

Do you give your neck as much love as your face? You should be!

So what is the best way to help prevent and smooth wrinkles on the neck area? Your neck and chest should be treated separately to ensure that it has all the attention it needs. How do you do this?

• Apply moisturiser with an SPF during the day
• Moisturise at night specific to your skin concerns
• Make sure you apply it to front, sides and back of the neck for proper coverage.

In addition, Retinol can be added. It is a powerful ingredient found in high performance products. I recommend my clients use Skinstitut's Retinol or for those who are a little more skin advanced Retriderm Serum. Excellent for pigmentation, minimising pore size, correcting blemishes and blotchiness. Need some skin advice or lost with all the information out there related to skin and beauty?
