benni to head up world tour
- Last year Benni took Europe by storm and led the Matrix World Tour on a 20 day educational campaign through Turkey, Moscow and Poland. This year he is off again as the sole Australian export for L'Oreal and in his second year is set to blow Europe out of the water with the creative design and educational excellence synonymous with Australian hairdressing. This tour will encompass education through Benni's two shows 'The Final Countdown' and 'One Man Show'. Benni has just finished his tour of Australia which embraced his latest programs with rave reviews. We wish him all the best and can't wait for the tour pics!. •
our 'second' first bday wrap-up
- One year on and close to 11,000 haircuts down, the James Street precinct has been an unbelievable move for us and last week we officially celebrated our 'second' first birthday with a party to remember. We packed the salon and feasted on treats by Togninis Bistro and Dello Mano, got our fashion fix with Foxton Danger's stunning spring collection… modeled by a few of our gorgeous clients, and blew out the candles to a huge year! Over the past 12 months, our team has had many adventures, with Benni touring Australia with his educational seminars and hitting Paris to set the global hair trends for 2012, the team reaching finalists for best new salon design and new creative force at Hair Expo, assisting in and hosting charity events which raised over $100,000 for flood survivors and cancer research, and sharing all the highs and lows with our amazing clients. It has been a year of insane growth and crazy experiences but our team looks forward to another massive year… Hip Hip… HOORAY! •
gen y trends hit indonesia
- The latest Gen Y hair trends are hitting Indonesia this month and our own Jules Tognini is heading up the pack. In 2010 Jules was asked to join the Matrix Australia Design Team. Since then he has been touring Australia as the Matrix Design Pulse Ambassador and now he is heading to Indonesia. He is taking his Gen Y training program (Y NOW) and is expecting to reach over 3000 budding stylists. Let's hope Jules returns in one piece… he has a tendency to return from trips with surfing injuries! •
our fav this month
- It is all about the feathers this month! Rooster feathers to be specific … similar to hair extensions they are individual or small group of feathers that are sewn into the hair. Attached to a micro bead which is flattened to ensure the feather lies flat against the hair, the feathers last for up to four weeks. Once the bead falls away the feather is then reusable. They come in all the colours of the rainbow – hot pink, purple, blue, orange and more. Once in the hair you can wash them, dry them, straighten or curl them…just like your own hair! Straight from the US we are one of the first in Australia! From just $35 they are this summer's must have accessory! •
