a hair raising ride for the industry
- Helmet hair is never a good look on anyone… let alone a group from the hair industry! But Benni Tognini and some of his industry friends are prepared to 'suffer' in the name of cancer research. Next month the team is jumping on their bikes to take part in Rio Tinto's Ride to Conquer Cancer. Aiming to raise $56,000 for the cause, the team is already well on their way with a current total of $35,395! All fifteen members of Team Zenergy, including Benni, Jules Tognini of aka togninis, Greg Whatling of Cloud Nine, and Darren Hebrard of DNA Design, are training hard and have even been given a food diary to ensure they are fit enough to complete the challenge! The ride happens August 20-21 and donations can be made at •
the ride
- On August 20th Benni, Jules and their 13 other team mates will commence their 200km ride through some of South-East Queensland's most picturesque countryside. The ride will take two days. It will be an epic challenge and some may think crazy but the team has been training for months in preparation and can't wait for the starting gun!! The ride is all in the name of raising funds for the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, one of the largest research institutes in Australia. It will move Australia closer to a cancer-free tomorrow. Benni didn't need much convincing to take on this 'insane' journey. "Working in the salon really creates an awareness of just how many lives are tragically affected by cancer… I consider myself very fortunate and feel that I can make a difference by taking part in this ride". •
our fav this month!
- Kerastase Homme has created an amazing range of products (Capital Force) specifically formulated for men to combat hair loss and dandruff. We are loving the in-salon rituals and the take-home collection is a must have for men to ensure they stay hairy and handsome! Benni Tognini says "It is just as important for men to look after their hair and scalp as women. Riding for hours with a helmet tied to my head reinforces how critical it is to use the right products. The Capital Force range including Anti-Oiliness Action, Anti-Dandruff, Densifying, and Styling, target aggravating factors of the hair and scalp and work right at the roots to improve and strengthen the hair". •

beauties + benni
- Whilst not about the ride, we had to share the fantastic Matrix Beauty Editors Experience Benni had earlier this month!! On July 11th, Matrix invited 7 of Australia's leading beauty editors to attend a personal salon experience with Benni in Sydney. Each editor was given a prescription as to her hair type and a 5 minute Total Treat, and then styled with the appropriate line ie sleek or moisture with the Total Results range. With editors from SHOP Til You Drop, Woman's Day, FAMOUS, Girlfriend and more, it was a day of indulgence and education in hair and the new Matrix Total Results range. •

the importance of exfoliation
- Whatever sport you are into…riding, soccer, tennis, or just rushing from one appointment to the next in heels (should be a sport!) exfoliation is really important to combat breakouts, dehydration, and skin aging. Studies show the epidermal turnover (surface layer of your skin) slows from 30% to 50% between your thirties and eighties… meaning a more dull and rough look to the surface of your skin. To combat this Dermalogica has put together a combination of chemical and physical exfoliant products which gently polish the skin and stimulate cell renewal. To help you develop your own exfoliation regime, or to give your skin a boost with a fabulous facial or body scrub. •
