Hair Designer Wins International Awards for Masterwork Creations in Hair
 
Water - artistic hair creation Fire - artistic hair creation Atlanta, Georgia, USA - According to her colleagues in the trendy, downtown establishment, called ‘Paragon Salon’, Brenda Waters is “the Hair Whisperer”, and this remarkable woman has an almost magical talent for transforming ordinary hair into extraordinary creations. This was evidenced by her recent award for “Best Overall Creation” in the 15th Annual Golden Scissors Awards photo competition for her entries of two of her latest works.
 
     Shown here, the two styles - entitled “Fire” and “Water” – were inspired by the power of the elements. Bucking tradition, Waters visualizes the heat and explosive energy of fire as a bold Mohawk radiating in shades of bright red, flame yellow, vibrant oranges and a myriad of sub-tones in between.
 
     Her vision of water shows the swell and flow of tidal forces in sweeping arcs and rolling waves, all in cool blue shades with whitecap streaks to emphasize the tidal movements. The added whimsy of the schooner accessory with weft of blue hair for sails simply ties in a sense of fun with the theme. Waters says, “I envisioned a storm on the high seas represented by an elegant ship crashing into the waves of varying hues of blue and turquoise.”
 
     Waters gives special credit for the results to her photographer, Brian Christian, adding, “His photography is absolutely amazing.”
 
     The Golden Scissors Awards celebrate artistic expression and professional excellence in the hair, beauty and fashion industries. The recipients of the awards are celebrated during an internationally renowned red carpet event attended by more than 5,000 guests and covered by media outlets such as The Washington Post, TV One, Upscale Magazine, and Suede, a new publication from the creators of Essence Magazine.
 
     Water’s specialty is 100 percent human hair extensions and custom wigs. The models featured in her competition submission wore wigs which she designed. The prices for her intricately customized hairpieces range from $1200 to $4000 (U.S. Dollars). In spite of her awards for the artistic side of her work, Brenda admits that she has a personal passion for helping other regain a natural look. "I especially love designing more natural looks for women who have lost their hair due to chemo, alopecia, or other medically related issues," says Ms. Waters.

Oprah’s Miracle Product Comes to the U.K.
 
ingrown hair serum www.seasonaltrends.co.uk – Oprah Winfrey has hailed it as a product you “can’t be without” and has endorsed it in her “O” magazine as a vital product for women who wax or shave. Now, Princereigns Ingrown Hair Serum is available in the U.K. through online orders.
 
     To this end, the company has developed Barbicide Wipes, which will allow the product to be used in other personal care industries as well. The company’s executives see the wipes being used and useful in hotels, spas, restaurants, schools and jails. As more and more people are concerned about germs – particularly following the recent outbreaks of a drug-resistant form of staph infection – people are asking their service providers how they are keeping their massage tables, arm rests, chairs and tanning beds germ-free.
 
     The serum softens the hair follicle, significantly reducing the occurrence of ingrown hairs. It also helps to lighten dark spots and even out the skin tone by nourishing the skin. The owner of Seasonal Trends (the online outlet that now offers the product) Graziella Ingrao-McLarty has commented, “We firmly believe this is the best product of its kind on the market. It provides consumers with an excellent alternative treatment which increases their self esteem, as all good beauty products should.”
 
     The serum is priced at £15.95. It can be purchased at www.seasonaltrends.co.uk.

Proctor & Gamble Buys Fekkai
 
Frederic Fekkai glossing products Cincinnati, Ohio, USA – Consumer Products giant, Procter & Gamble has recently acquired the luxury hair care brand ‘Frederic Fekkai’ as a means to ensure continued sales and profit growth in spite of the waning U.S. economy. While the financial details were not disclosed, P&G did purchase the Fekkai brand from the private equity firm of Catterton Partners. Fekkai is considered by P&G to be the leading prestige hair care brand in the U.S. and is expected to become an important addition to P&G portfolio of brands in the field of luxury personal care.
 
     Luxury/Prestige products enjoy a relatively high margin of profit from sales as consumers are typically willing to pay high premiums for what they consider the “professional’s touch”. P&G isn’t the only corporation delving more deeply into this market. L’Oreal sees great potential in this field and has acquired three hair salon businesses in the U.S. recently: Maly’s West, Beauty Alliance and Columbia Beauty Supply.
 
     While personal care products fall under a more “necessity” categorization, consumers are generally willing to seek out and find what they believe are higher-quality, specialty products, and are willing to pay significant sums of money for them.
