Favorite TrendMakers
World’s first beauty parlor/cosmetology school opened by Ziryab, 9th century in Cordoba, capital of Spain. Ziryab, born Bagdad 767 AD. Francois Marcel Grateau's 'Ondulation Marcel' (1872), better know today as the Marcel Wave. Antoine - 1st to achieve Int'l fame. Dr. Everett McDonough (Zotos) for the cold wave, bases of perms today. Al Lapin (Lapinal) who invented single process haircolor. Comer Syprett whose organization (Comer & Doran) perfected pincurls-fingerwaves & the art of brushing. Freddie French (Nick's dad) for inventing the Denman Brush (nine row-how would have we ever blown dry hair? Leo Passage whose organization (Pivot Point) perfected roller-setting and the fine art of the comb-out. Jerry Reading's organization (Redken) of the early 60s brought a new level of professionalism followed by Dr. Ron DiSalvo, a major industry shift. Vidal Sassoon-fame personified. Roger Thompson - layered cut of the late 60s - for the 1st time brought clients under the age of 45 into hair salons. Daryl Benson-new graduation (71), The Firefly being the first photo/version/cut name by Christopher Brooker (72), Trevor Sorbie's Wedge (74) yet another, the name stuck. Became a US phenomenon when Suga's version on Dorthy Hammel while she skated during the 76 olympics. Haircut prices increased dramatically because of it. Daryl's cutting into shapes (Shake as an example) in the late 70s that opened the door to the free form - new techniques galore - trend laden 80s.
John Sahag - reinventing dry-cutting (all hair was cut dry prior to the razor period starting in the mid-50s) with a creative eye for shape, became the most famous celebrity/fashion stylist in modern history within the fashion, beauty and editorial world.
As Vidal did in the 60s, reinventing the 20s Bob (have photos of the five point bob/one side bob/several other versions from 1927), there's usually some history behind an idea when its time has come. With the connection to Mary Quant - MODs - the Beatles - you have the British 'Swinging 60s'. The hippies had their own unique take in the US. With the invent of birth control, very much at the root.
1920s - Irene Castle 1st shingled Bob-short skirts 1917. Who were these hairdressers? 1920-5,000 beauty parlors in the US - 1930-40,000 - this US period was one of the pivotal points in hairdressing.
Love to know the talent/stories from that revolutionary hair period.
Like the 50s big five in Paris: Alexandre-Guillaume-Maurice Frank and the Carita sisters, Rosy & Maria. The 50s US equivalent: Gene Shacove-Kenneth Battelle-George Masters-John Goodman and Gus Caruso.
So many have contributed to the progress of change in the craft through the decades, too many to list, not including the many lost, unknown or forgotten.
To so many - we owe so much.
Instead of trends and TrendMakers, one should concentrate on increasing ones own skill, craftsmanship and artistic expression. So much history and talent to draw from...
"Lyfe so short, the craft so long to lerne" A&Cs (19th century). Version similar to "Ars Longa Vita Brevis" (Art is Long, Life is Short) -Hippocrates (4th century).
Full version ‘Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience misleading, judgment difficult.’ Hippocrates
V L V T academies show/classes, thanks to all that come to support V L V T! Last official pins & patches ride - 10th Anniversary 'Run to Cosmoprof' Santa Fe to Vegas - Aztec through Zion - 2012 ...
Favorite Brands
All brands have great products within them. Lots of duplication and marketing spins to create uniqueness and separation. Products are as good as the hairstylist knowledge and skill in selecting, using and recommending them.
Favorite Music
Jazz - Blues - Rock - Soul - Alternative - Trance - Tech-House - Industrial/EBM - Disko Punk - Electronica - Italo - Groove Lounge - Int'l - Native - Opera
