Award-winning hairdresser, and the man behind Albert Park’s iconic Ibiza Hair salon, Michael Piastrino has expanded his empire, opening Code Black Barbershop in July 2016, just two doors down from Ibiza Hair. A super cool space enhanced by concrete floors, old school barber chairs, and a selection of beverages that will quench your thirst, Code Black oozes cool sophistication and style; the perfect haven for any guy looking to chill out and receive a tailored grooming experience. “Ibiza has been such a success for me, but I really wanted to create a cool Barbershop for the men of Melbourne that wasn’t too traditional yet where they’ll have great personalized service, the highest quality haircuts, moustache trims and beard tidies, and cut throat, hot towel shaves,” says Michael. “I’m really proud of what we have created – the feeling you get when you walk into the shop is a feeling like no other! If you’ve had a long week or you’re simply just tired, the high energy and atmosphere at Code Black will have you bouncing back in no time!” Code Black boasts a talented team handpicked for their exceptional skills, carefully trained to guarantee clients always receive the high standard associated with Code Black. Says Michael, “We pride ourselves on our customer service; from our personable approach, and your dedicated barber taking you through your whole service; to our integrated vacuum system ensuring no hair strays down the neck; to our whisky and coffee bar offering a rolling calendar of seasonal tipples.” “As an additional point of difference, we also offer our newly created and launched Franco Alphonse & Co Barber Shop Grooming Products; a tailored product range which we use in the shop throughout services and retail to clients.”

The stylish and relaxing design highlights the masculine environment with Scottish oak cutting desks providing a communal atmosphere and bringing back the legacy of the barber as a social hub in the community. Although still the new kid on the block, Code Black has already captured the attention of an array of AFL Players, former Mafia Boss Michael Franzese and Scotty Cam from THE BLOCK. “We’re servicing a great clientele already and look forward to welcoming more men of Melbourne into the shop,” says Michael. And the name? Code references the unique code behind the cuts delivered at the shop, and Black is simply because 60% of the shop is black!

    Luciano Cañete no fue el típico niño que quería ser peluquero. Tampoco empezó en este oficio porque se le daba bien. “De hecho me cuesta mucho aprender a hacer la cosas, pero soy una persona muy constante. Llegué a la peluquería porque vi a un primo mío cortar el pelo y me enamoré de sus manos. Por supuesto, quise hacer lo mismo”. Tras unos años en Londres, regresó a nuestro país donde puso en marcha la cadena Corta Cabeza, un nombre arriesgado pero que le ha dado un buen resultado en la capital. Cañete, director y fundador de esta cadena, se inspiró en los salones británicos, en cuanto a trato y asesoramiento personalizado y corte y color inspiradores. Siete años después de la primera apertura, trabaja codo con codo con 45 profesionales y gestiona cuatro salones especializados en peluquería y maquillaje. “El maquillaje es tan importante como la peluquería. Cuando haces un total look, este es una parte de la imagen resultante. No incluirlo sería como salir a la calle a medio vestir, con un zapato sí y otro no. El maquillaje consigue que luzcas más saludable, esconde cosas que no se tienen que ver y realza tus virtudes”.

      América Latina le echa un pulso al sector de la peluquería y parece que este último va a salir victorioso. Los salones latinoamericanos dejan de ser negocios diminutos para transformarse en empresas con nuevos socios, franquicias e incluso representaciones de productos capilares dirigidos al profesional. Algunos ejemplos son la cadena de salones española Marco Aldany; Montalvo, de origen peruano, y VIP, de procedencia colombiana.

      Para hacerse una idea de la evolución del sector, Montalvo Spa peluquería ya cuenta con 47 salones, de los cuales 10 son franquicias, dentro y fuera de Perú. La cadena VIP ya supera los 20 salones en Colombia. Por su parte, Marco Aldany prosigue con su expansión internacional en diferentes puntos de Latinoamérica. Evidentemente, hemos citado algunos casos que ponen de manifiesto la pujanza de la peluquería en los países latinoamericanos.

      El negocio de la belleza tiene un gran potencial en América Latina. Las mujeres se resisten a salir a la calle mal peinadas, con un corte de pelo o color descuidados. Este interés en su imagen personal contribuye a dinamizar el sector, independientemente del contexto económico que se dé en ese momento. Un sector que avanza con los tiempos pero que precisa también del apoyo de su público, aquel que valora su experiencia, trabajo y savoir faire.

          Si chiama “Hairy” il libro fotografico pubblicato su Instagram da una fotografa americana che ritrae cani con pettinature all’ultima moda.

          Eh sì: esistono anche parrucchieri per cani e sono professionisti seri, con parecchia esperienza alle spalle e dotati di una buona dose di pazienza e creatività.
          Grace Chon è una fotografa di animali e ha dato il via a questo suo “esperimento” fotografando i cagnolini prima e dopo la toeletta. I risultati sono davvero sbalorditivi e divertentissimi!

            Although the Brexit brings some uncertainty, the indoor market is vibrant and businesses are creative, bringing fresh ideas, and reshaping standards.

            At a round table bringing testimonials from the brand, retail and manufacturing side, we will bring you insights into the world of make-up in the United Kingdom, and draw the trends in textures, formulas, packaging of this vibrant market.

            British consumers are eager to try on new products and test out new trends. Remember: the “big brows” trend came from England. Young consumers, although driven by price, are open to novelties and with the boom of Beauty bloggers, every single girl has a chance to share her opinion and shape the future. “It’s all about social media. Nowadays niche brands also have the possibility to express themselves via this digital space, and new opportunities arise” confirms Emily Maben, Marketing Manager at Sleek MakeUp, the fastest growing make-up brand in the UK.

            UK, the leading consumer market in Europe
            Premium brands as well as mass market brand are taking a step forward. Covent Garden, in Central London has become THE Beauty Quarter… the new rendezvous for make-up. Every brand is trying out its new beauty concept store. It started with the opening of Chanel – Fragrance and Make-up (since 2012 as a pop-up store initially – now a permanent shop), then Burberry Beauty Box (since 2013), Dior Beauty Boutique (since 2013), Urban Decay (first UK store, since 2014), Clinique (since 2014) Bobbi Brown Studio (since 2014), Kiko (since end 2015), Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Boudoir (first worldwide store, since end 2015), 3ina (first worldwide store, since February 2016), Nars (since June 2016).

            This Beauty Quarter testifies of the dynamism of the British colour cosmetics market, which is the 1st in Europe representing a value of 2.088 billion euros.

              shopping-1163506_640

              Si abbassa l’interesse dei clienti per lo shopping nei negozi fisici.

              Il retail tradizionale sta cambiando con la rivoluzione digitale, la realtà dei brand è “omnicanale”.

              “Innovare” oggi non significa riempire i negozi di schermi interattivi ma lanciarsi nella realtà virtuali, appoggiarsi a droni e robot che leggano le emozioni dei clienti e direzionare il marketing in questo senso.
              La “generazione Z” (13-17enni di oggi), che ha già mandato in prepensionamento i Millennials e la “Generazione X”, entra in un negozio se, accanto allo shopping, trova anche intrattenimento.

              Un brand funziona non solo se ha un buon prodotto, ma se per venderlo propone “esperienze”: eventi artistici, scientifici, spettacolari. Certo il “retail emozionale” è costoso, infatti per ora è applicato solo dalle grandi Aziende.
              Amazon lavora da tempo su “Prime Air”, il servizio di consegna della merce in 30 minuti via drone, ma il benchmark a cui guardare è la Cina che, superato il social-shopping-online, inverte la tendenza e spinge alla costruzione di mall fisici.

                marini

                 

                Nuova avventura da stilista per Valeria Marini che, in piena estate, decide di lanciare il suo nuovo marchio di moda “Baci Stellari by Valeria Marini”, pronto a conquistare il mercato della moda e lanciare nuove tendenze.

                Un nome scelto non a caso, ispiratosi al mondo “stellare” della Marini e al suo simpatico ed originale, se non unico, modo di salutare da sempre i suoi amici, fans e colleghi. Non solo nella vita reale ma anche in TV, durante la più recente trasmissione “Notti sul ghiaccio” in onda su Rai 1 e condotta da Milly Carlucci, la stessa frase divenne tendenza nazionale e catturò l’attenzione di migliaia e migliaia di utenti. Una moda già di tendenza, ancora prima di iniziare, in quanto il saluto “baci stellari” è diventato, nel corso degli anni, una moda sociale diffusa nelle persone come gesto di saluto.

                  Stretch is a play on silhouette and structural combinations initiated from really tight cartoon hairlines into extremes of volume using simple techniques expanding into big shapes. It is most importantly a celebration of natural hair texture and diversity. A vibe of incredible tension is created in the pose and stretch of the bold exaggerated compositions. This collection is not about control but graphic shape and fluidity.

                    Uno studio francese pubblicato sulla rivista “Sexually Trasmitted Diseases” ha lanciato l’allarme sulla pericolosità dell’eliminazione quasi totale dei peli pubici che, secondo i ricercatori, favorirebbe la trasmissione di un virus cutaneo conosciuto come “Molluscom Contagiosum”.

                    Il virus si trasmette tramite contatto, anche solo appoggiandosi su asciugamani infetti, attraverso graffi o rapporti sessuali e la pratica della ceretta in zone così delicate, a causa dei microtraumi cutanei che provoca, faciliterebbe l’ingresso del virus.
